Taurus Monthly Vedic Astrology Horoscope: April 2020
The Month Ahead: Your April Forecast
Lucky you Taurus!
Your very important chart ruler Venus has finally come home! Venus transits into Taurus only about once a year, so please do make a note of this in your calendar. You will have the support of your ruling planet through early May.
This will support your physical body and immunity (that said please do not take any unnecessary risks with your health during this pandemic!) and will help promote a calm and grounded attitude.
Although there are significant influences to Taurus and Venus early in the month. Be aware that the hard working and vata (airy) planet Saturn is in close trines to Venus the first few days of the month and the usual stable quality of this combination may feel less so April 1-3 due to Saturn’s gaze.
Mars will also be sending his fiery glance to Venus for pretty much the entire month of April! Passionate and fiery Mars combined with sensuous Venus in Taurus can bring a lot of desire into relationships, but it also has the potential to create some relationship challenges, too. But Venus is slowing down to go retrograde in May (more on this in next month’s forecast!) so these two passionate planets will be co-mingling energies very intensely from April 8-28.
With everyone at home with their partners and family for the pandemic, at least through part of April, this is an important influence to note! Those who are not used to spending this amount of time with loved ones, you may need to take a walk on your own, or spend 15 minutes a day on your own in a meditation or mindfulness practice to balance out this intense Martian energy that is being directed toward you from your partner.
With your fourth ruler Sun exalted in the house of the subconscious mind, you will be supported in your efforts for meditation. You will be able to find deep peace of mind from this practice, especially from April 13 – May 12. This is a fantastic time to imagine yourself in a retreat in a foreign land.
You may be feeling extra tense around your accumulated assets and investments around the final week of April. Things will lighten up significantly after that time.
April 7 Full Moon in Chitra Nakshatra
This full Moon will be in a harmonious element to your chart ruler and so many other planets! Contemplate what in your life connected to romance or creativity that you want to complete during this full Moon period. And maybe it is about completing one creative activity so that you can begin something anew? Chitra nakshatra is very much connected to arts and crafts, home décor and design and architecture.
With the full Moon comes another dramatic influence. Fiery Mars is squaring off with unpredictable Uranus. Since Mars is your partnership planet and the full Moon occurs in the house connected to romance, you may want to give your partner plenty of leeway on this day. Especially since so many who are in committed partnerships will be working at home and together a lot more than usual. Expect the unexpected.
April 22 New Moon in Ashwini
This new Moon can bring a tremendous amount of healing to your subconscious mind. Ashwini nakshatra new Moon occurs in the 12th house of your horoscope and connects directly to the subconscious and the potential for healing through self-inquiry.
Ashwini is particularly supportive for spiritual practices and beginning any kind of healing modality, whether it is herbs or medicines or mindfulness.
Saturn is facing of in a square with the new Moon so make sure your expectations are realistic! That said the influence from unpredictable Uranus is going to want to break through traditional patterns, so try and find a balance.
