By Kris Brandt Riske, PMAFA

Aries (March 21-April 20): The first three weeks of April are your time to shine, thanks to the Sun in your sign. Even better, you get an added boost from the New Moon, also in your sign, on the 18th. This months big event, however, is the lunar eclipse on the 1st in your solar partnership sector. You'll connect with many people during the next six months, and could form some lasting relationships. Stayed tune in April for a surprise during the first 10 days.

Taurus (April 21-May 21): Several planets visit your sign this month. Notable among them is Mars, which will lend you its high-powered energy through early May. Get the best of it by emphasizing your notable determination and minimizing your resistance to change. Then you can accomplish just about anything you focus on. Jupiter turns direct in your solar domestic sector on the 8th, making this month a good choice to update your home space.

Gemini (May 22-June 21): Your secret to success this month is networking, an influence that will benefit you until the fall months. The lunar eclipse on the 18th also challenges you to think carefully about short- and long-term goals and the develop an action plan. During the first two weeks of April a friend could be the spark that triggers fresh insights and possibly even a new connection that might be serendipitous. Early April could bring you good advice.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): You could make a lucky find during the last week of April, or net a profit from a yard or online sale. Be cautious, though, about making any deals mid-month, when someone could take advantage of you. The New Moon on the 18th spotlights your career sector and could trigger anything from praise to advancement; however, someone could resent your success and attempt to undermine your gains. Be alert for hidden factors.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22): Your already fast-paced life will be even more so the next six months, thanks to the influence of the lunar eclipse on the 1st. Communication is also emphasized and you might schedule a number of weekend getaways. Several planets in your solar career sector this month will bring extra attention your way, but you'll need to pause and think before you act or speak rather than dash forward in tune with Mars. Take care to avoid conflict.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): April is all about money. The lunar eclipse on the 1st highlights your personal financial sector and the New Moon on the 18th does the same in your solar sign of joint resources. Take advantage of this energy to review money matters, retirement funds, investments, and everyday expenses. Learning is also on this months agenda, whether you do that by taking a short-term class or reading or studying on your own. Increase your knowledge.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This months lunar eclipse on the 1st in your sign and New Moon on the 18th in Aries spotlight you and the close relationships in your life. Other people will be especially drawn to you and you to them through the fall months. Expect a few surprises along the way as well as the benefit of the wisdom and knowledge others will share with you. Avoid travel mid-month, if possible, when trips will be prone to delays and lost luggage.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Other people will be a major focus in your life this month as four planets travel in Taurus, your solar relationship sector. With the New Moon on the 18th in Aries, you can establish strong ties with coworkers and earn praise from the boss. Take care, though, not to push your personal agenda too hard or the potential gains could slip away. Your subconscious will be especially active during the next six months. Take note of dreams.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Fun will be high on your April agenda. No surprise there. This month, though, you get a boost from the lunar eclipse on the 1st and the New Moon on the 18th. An exciting new romance or a newly energized relationship is possible in the next six months. If you need to hire a professional for domestic repairs or something else, wait until after mid-month; otherwise you're likely to get anything from a bad deal to false information.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Dividing your time and energy between career and home is your challenge in April and through the fall months. It will be a careful balancing act, but one you're more than capable of doing. Relocation and/or a new career position are possible. With four planets visiting your solar recreation sector this month, you can easily offset stress with outdoor activities and time with your children and/or romantic interest.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19): Direct your independent spirit into the domestic scene this month. Home improvements and renovations, as well as general spring cleaning and dealing with clutter, are a great way to use Aprils planetary energy. Be cautious, though, with tools and ladders because Mars could trigger an unexpected mishap. Plan a weekend getaway, or a longer trip, when the lunar eclipse on the 1st and the New Moon on the 18th urge a change of scenery.

Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20): Finances could get a boost from the New Moon on the 18th, and the lunar eclipse on the 1st encourages you to join forces with your partner to plan for the future. Take a deeper look at money matters, including an emphasis on saving. An unexpected expense could pop up this month, as could an unexpected gain. Take care on the road as Mars transits Taurus all month, and don't jump to conclusions around the 22nd.
