"This is one of those months where things will just keep on happening ? and happening?. Just when you assume nothing ELSE could possibly happen, something else inevitably will. Is it possible to squeeze so much news and change into one tiny month? Yes, for sure, and April is due to be a turning point month for many, of all signs. We have a very tough new moon on March 30, influencing the first half of April, and then two eclipses, a lunar full moon eclipse in Libra on April 15, also quite full of power and might, and a solar eclipse in Taurus on April 28/29 that will affect you the most, but that is a little bit milder than the April 15 eclipse.
While these eclipses won't be exactly easy, they are necessary, for the main job of an eclipse is to test the strength of situations and relationships and to bring any weak links to your attention. The universe wants you to have a strong, vital, happy, and highly productive life, so anything that the eclipse finds that impedes that mission will be shown to you or else swept away."
So I'll end up unemployed at this rate? Thanks, universe! Oh, wait, no.
"Eclipses are non-negotiable, so if the eclipse fosters an end to a relationship or a condition, the only way for you to approach that news is to move forward. The eclipse will lock the door on the past, and there will be no way back. If you don't like the changes you see shaping up now, you will be able to make new changes later, on the road ahead. For now, you must accept what you see happening. The eclipses will correct any situation you didn't know about, ignored, or that you did not have the courage to take hold of with both hands, quite straightforwardly.
This particular set of eclipses will break patterns of the past and set you in a new direction. These will be powerful, especially for the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn). You are not a cardinal sign but a fixed sign, dear Scorpio, but we all have cardinal signs located somewhere in our charts. The last eclipse of the month, April 28/29, will be in Taurus, the sign found on the same axis as yours, so that one will be the important one to watch.
Lunar full moon eclipses (like the one coming April 15) end a chapter. Solar new moon eclipses (like the one coming April 28/29) open a new path. For that reason, solar eclipses are generally easier to go through, as they tend to present somewhat calmer environment. Full moon lunar eclipses sometimes make us sentimental as they bring up memories and old dreams, and they remind us of the passage of time.
Let's start at the top of the month, and see how the month builds as it moves forward. The first two weeks of April will be highly influenced by the new moon that occurred just two days prior to the start of the month, March 30. It appeared in Aries, 10 degrees, in your house of work assignments, so you may see many changes to assignments, and changes being asked of you may seem a bit random or subjective. No matter, clients won't be able to make up their minds or can think logically, but are feeling pressure from people above to make subjective redo's that seem to have no rhyme or reason. Mars is currently retrograde until May 19, so attempting to get a grip on this will be fruitful - simply smile and go with the flow."
Yup, sounds like my job again. Then again, that's pretty much what it's like all the time no matter what month.
"You may find that a client may announce that he is leaving your company now, or it may be a long-term project that you worked on and enjoyed is now coming to a finish. You may have known this would happen, but even so, you may miss the people with whom you worked and the kind of work you did on it. If you are now suddenly out of work, do not fret, for a new one will come in to fill the vacuum if you begin looking quickly. You of all the signs have the most spectacular outlook for career success of any sign come mid-July."
This makes me laugh and laugh, given how the last time I was supposed to have good luck at job hunting, I did not. I mean, it sounds nice and I could use it, but I've learned not to have hopes.
"Also at work, due to the hard new moon, your co-workers may now change, and a trusted assistant might announce her departure. (She will be doing this at precisely the wrong time, with so much going on at the office, leaving you feeling overwhelmed and helpless for a day or two, until you set about adjusting to this new situation.)"
That already happened, though it's not so much quitting so much as it's a semi-transfer. But yeah, ugh.
"This is simply the way the universe teaches us all to be flexible. I know, you don't need this commotion now, but alas, we are all in the same boat in April. Nothing will happen as you expect it will, as the new moon of March 30 arrived arm-in-arm with Uranus, planet of unanticipated events. That new moon will be a hot potato (there, I have said it), as it will also send a hard glance to Pluto too.
Pluto is your ruler, so you will have to have contingency plans for the office. For example, you may need to hire temporary help to fill in for the merry-go-round of personnel around you. I will advise you NOT to hire new recruits, not with such difficult aspects at play. You can hire temporary help before you set anything in stone."
Heh. Well, that's not under my control or happening until next month (and that will be new recruits!).
"The sixth house, where all your office pandemonium will be taking place, discussed above, also rules the state of your health. It is possible that you may notice that something is amiss, so take care of your health this month, for you need to be your own best friend. The new moon that appeared March 30 was in Aries, ruling the head, so you need to watch your teeth or to be on guard against a headache. If you know certain foods or beverages trigger headaches in you, be diligent about avoiding them now. Of course, keep an eye on your constitution in general, and be sure to get enough sleep in this potentially draining month.
The big event will be the full moon lunar eclipse, April 15, in Libra 25 degrees. You are not the subject of this eclipse, but nevertheless, it will light your house of your subconscious mind. If you have had a problem that has been troubling you, or if you would like to overcome an addicted to any sort of substance, the eclipse will give you the impetus to get help. This may happen because of something little, like a casual comment you hear about you, or another type of event that brings on an epiphany. You can now turn over a new leaf, even if you have tried and failed before, because this month you will have the key ingredient for success - keen motivation and a strong drive to master anything you put your mind to."
????? Okay, so I'm not really addicted to anything, but fixing a problem would be good.
"Mars will oppose Uranus in exact mathematical degree, in the same signs as it did at the end of December, Libra and Aries specifically. (That had to make the year-end holidays in 2013 very hard for certain Scorpios). Here we go again. If you had problems at the end of December, you may not feel them again, as the mathematical degrees have changed, but you must be vigilant anyway. Here is why."
Hm. Well, my year-end holidays were pretty awesome, but it turned out that the aforementioned failed job hunt's seeds of destruction were probably going on then when I wasn't around to hear about it. Good point.
"You are ruled by Mars, and when opposite Uranus, Mars can bring on a confrontation between you and a disrespectful subordinate who has overestimated his value to the firm. It would be hard not to criticize this person, but if you do, your confrontation may escalate to become even more inflamed. Be careful. April 22-23 will be very hot days. The problem is, because Uranus moves so slowly, you will feel this aspect at play nearly all month. Pick your moment to let this person go, but don't give him any reason to go to the human resources department to complain about you."
Hah. I think I'm the disrespectful subordinate in this situation. I need to keep my damn mouth shut, but everyone always complains anyway, right?
"Due to the cardinal cross, legal matters and contracts are being drawn into the mix this month too, and I would strongly suggest you not sign anything now. With too much going on around you, it may be hard to think clearly. Give any papers that will commit you to others the time you need to mull over them."
Well, hopefully that isn't gonna be an issue this month.
"Also, with the Sun conjunct Uranus, you may get some surprising news about your career mid-month, something you never in a million years expected would happen. It could be celebratory, or just the opposite. (These eclipses are tough to predict because Uranus will be prominent all month and will be leaving his fingerprints all over everything). You could score a completely unexpected career victory at this time, one that brings your name to the attention of a VIP at the very top, or you may be trying to fix a near disaster, most likely tied to the subordinate you are dealing with earlier in the month. Let's go with the interpretation of "do a great job, and you'll have a shot at major praise and a promotion by late July." (Or, you may get an invitation to join a competitive firm at that time.) I am not worried about YOUR career outlook, dear Scorpio!"
I am, but it's nice that you're confident.
"This same eclipse, April 15, will shine a light into things going on behind closed doors, in secret, so that you can find out about them and protect yourself. This will be true ONLY if something truly is going on - I am not saying that there is anything for you to find right now. If anyone has a political agenda that has the power to do you any damage, this eclipse will show you the identity of that person in the office now. (The ancient astrologers always referred to the twelfth house as the one that pointed to secret enemies, while the seventh house would always point to open enemies. Both these houses will be lit for you this month, so you do have to be careful.)"
"Scorpio is a shrewd sign, so you, more than most, will step back and observe, a talent that will help you this month. To be clear, I am not saying you have ANY enemies, the secret kind or otherwise, but I am simply saying that part of the possible manifestation of the eclipses point a POSSIBILITY in this direction. I hope this will NOT apply to you. I simply tell you so that you can keep your eyes open, but I do not want you to feel a need to be paranoid. Eclipses expose untoward actions and bring secrets that would hurt you up to the surface and out in the open. If the eclipse finds nothing to expose, you will go through this period easily, and news may be mild compared to what one or two of your Scorpio friends experience now."
That's definitely already going on. At this point I'm reasonably assuming that literally everyone around me is a secret enemy, actually.
"As you get to the end of the month, you will reach the key eclipse for you, a solar new moon eclipse in Taurus, 10 degrees on April 28/29 (depending on your time zone). This will instantly open an important new chapter in your closest romantic relationship. If you have been dating seriously, this eclipse may bring an important turning point - a suggestion to be exclusive to each other, a confession of love, or even a marriage proposal."
"If you are already married, you may now make plans together to work toward new goals. If you have no romantic partner, then this new moon eclipse may be directed toward your plans to form a new business partnership; or for you to find and collaborate with a new manager, agent, publicist, lawyer, or accountant; or if you are the agent, for example, a new important talent to represent."
That would be nice.
