Gemini Monthly Vedic Astrology Horoscope: April 2020
Your Month Ahead: April Forecast
My Mercury ruled friends…you are through the retrograde phase, and almost done with the confusing Mercury/Rahu exchange that has been going on for months!
Just after midnight on April 7, Mercury finally heads into Pisces. This is a very nebulous sign for the usually rational and analytically oriented Mercury, but I still prefer this transit over the Mercury/Rahu exchange. So we might as well roll with it!
On April 10-13, Mercury will be getting a serious push from somber Saturn to get cracking and keep on working although you may be feeling really tired right about that time. Hang in there, the influence will be short lived.
Mercury in Pisces will be fantastic for creative writers, poets and spiritual teachers. Mark April 7-24 on your calendars! Especially if you happen to write as part of your career. Plan time to sit down and get your thoughts onto your computer. Or if you keep a journal, this could be an extremely powerful time for self-inquiry.
Once Mercury moves into Aries, it will be in a somewhat tense position relative to expansive Jupiter and restrictive Saturn from April 24-28. The conflicting message of Saturn and Jupiter from the area of your chart connected with transformation has the potential to create some frustration during this time. Good news is that it will pass fairly fast and by the end of the month you will be full speed ahead. Especially when Mercury meets with eccentric Uranus on April 29-30. Get your idea book out! Ideas will be coming fast and furious!
Jupiter is also the planet of relationships for you. The square from Jupiter will be concentrated on the 24-26. Give yourself and your partner extra leeway during this time, especially if you are still spending all of your time at home together!
Make the most of your good friend Venus in Taurus for most of April. This movement of Venus can connect your creativity to your spiritual path. It will also be a terrific time for meditation since your 12th house of the subconscious mind will be quite active. Since Venus is a rajasic (active!) planet your sleep may benefit from a meditation practice.
April 7 Full Moon in Chitra Nakshatra
The full Moon occurs in Chitra nakshatra and is illuminating your home and zone connected to your innermost happiness. Is there something that needs to be addressed in your environment to support your ongoing happiness? Especially as we face the unknown about how long those who normally work away from home will be working from home or who are home due to layoffs or job loss.
Full Moons are generally associated with endings, although this time is good for caring for your health, preparing medicines (especially good for my Ayurvedic practitioner friends!) and spiritual practices.
Whatever your intentions you set for this full Moon be sure to maintain a level of practicality since Saturn will have some oversight on this full Moon energy.
With the full Moon comes another dramatic influence with Mars squaring off with unpredictable Uranus. Since Mars is your planet of work and daily routine, you may have some unexpected interruptions on this day. Which has to potential to be frustrating because Saturn influencing the Moon/mind will want some stability and structure.
April 22 New Moon in Ashwini
This is an especially healing new Moon, dear Gemini! Do you have a relationship you want to heal, possibly with a friend or an older sibling? If so, this is the new Moon to take advantage of to build that bridge and lay a new foundation.
If you want to set intentions for increasing your earnings from your work, take full advantage of your only new Moon this year in your 11th house! Since Mars rules your 11th house and the southern direction, place some red currency (if you have some Canadian bills on hand that will work!) or even a regular dollar bill with a red ribbon around it. Leave it in this sector of your home for a few months and see what happens. The new Moon will bring new financial opportunities for you as well as a chance to expand your social and business networks. Take some time to reflect on what you really want to bring into your life.
