Planet Waves for April 2015


By Eric Francis

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Your mantra in these weeks can be “anything is possible,” as events conspire to open up new worlds of potential. What comes your way may not be what you were expecting, what you thought was likely or the thing you seem to want the most. Even so, what transpires has the power to send your life in bold, new directions you never could have planned.

Taurus (April 19-May 20)

Desire is your most trustworthy ally this month. Set your priorities, start at the top of the list and work your way down. Charm, elegance and cooperation will help you assert your will. Though you may be tempted, an easygoing approach will work better than competition or aggression. Keep your mind as focused as a warrior, never forgetting your goals for a moment.

Gemini (May 20-June 21)

Your solar chart is vibrating with genius, ideas and revelations. It’s as if you can tap into all of your past lifetimes as an inventor and artist and remember everything you once knew. At least one idea will easily connect to a source of income, though I suggest you let everything other than money motivate you, for now anyway.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re feeling at your very boldest and brightest, and it won’t be a coincidence if you’re summoned into a leadership role. If that happens, handle any form of authority gently. Be fair at every turn. Move at a slower pace than you may be inclined. You have so much energy that people will need to work to keep up with you. Give them a chance.

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23)

Business travel is highly favored this month, and you’re ready to burst free from your present surroundings. In any event you’re going somewhere, as Mars moves over the success angle of your chart, giving you a surge of faith in your talents and abilities. The goals to pursue are your newest ones — what you’re excited about right now.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)

Focus one specific idea or objective and you are bound to succeed — that is, if you’re willing to work with others who push you. Sometimes you are at your best when you’re challenged by partners or collaborators. Take all of your work or financial involvements as learning opportunities and you cannot go wrong. Yet the potential for profit is much greater than knowledge.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23)

You may feel the invisible hand on your shoulder, guiding you quietly. Still, be sure you make clear decisions rather than allowing others to make up your mind for you. You might not understand what seems like a complex situation, though the picture will come into focus soon enough. Listen carefully and you’ll hear people reveal their motives — always useful information.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)

Events this month are drawing you directly into the action. Do not hesitate to step up. There’s plenty to get done, and you have something to offer. For one thing, there are no limits on what you can get done. And in any work project situation you’re likely to be the one with the idea that solves the big puzzle.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22)

Everything you touch turns to beauty, to something exciting, something of value. Experiment with your most out-there ideas. Give them life, give them a voice and a place where they can be seen. Reveal your boldest, splashiest work. In other words, don’t hold back, especially for fear of being different. You may be shocked how useful those ideas turn out to be.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)

You may find yourself needing to reconcile your work-related responsibilities with so much that’s happening at home. The truth is, your domestic life is more important, for the moment. Though you won’t read this in any stock definition of Capricorn, it’s your foundation, both of your identity and your success. It’s far more meaningful than you typically let on. Remind yourself of that often.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)

You have something to say, and whatever that is will benefit the people around you. Though you’re not one to keep your opinions to yourself, I suggest you be especially generous this month — especially with what you know from direct experience. People look up to you as one with wisdom to offer, and as someone they trust dearly.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’re still under the influence of a potent solar eclipse in your sign, which has set you free from many old ideas about yourself. The real question is about where you’re going and what you’re becoming. You’re being empowered to rise to your highest concept of yourself. For that to work, start now actively visualizing your ideals, through imagination, clear description or photography. Then look, see and become.
