ARIES (March 21st -April 20th)
You want to take on a different role at the beginning of April, but there are people around you hoping to block your path. The New Moon on the 5th makes you fully aware of the conservative attitudes and stuffy restraints that are holding you captive. If you are going to strike in another direction, there will be consequences. You may be at the point that you do not care. If that's the case, get ready for some fireworks. There are people around you who will try making life very difficult for you. You have friends in high places. On the 19th, someone close to you and trusted will come to your rescue. Accept their offer to expand your horizons. Let your friend set you up in a training course. Getting a license or certificate in a growing field will allow you to live anywhere in the world. This is exactly the kind of change you want.
TAURUS (April 21st - May 21st)
Working behind the scenes will be stressful at the beginning of April. The New Moon on the 5th finds you butting heads with an expert who wants to take all the credit for your hard work. Staying in this situation will make it impossible to advance. It's time to start looking for a better situation. Stop telling yourself this is your only option. It may be necessary to upgrade your skills or transition into a different industry, but this will be much better than staying in a toxic environment. On the 19th, the Full Moon will help you wrap up a work project that attracts lots of favourable publicity. Use this achievement to move into a better job. Working for a commission will be better than taking a flat salary. It's time you were paid for your superior performance. Don't be afraid of meeting April's challenges. They have been sent to move you into a better position.

GEMINI (May 22nd - June 21st)
Cracks are beginning to appear in your social circle. A stressful New Moon on the 5th warns against lending or borrowing money. Coming to a troubled person's rescue won't resolve their problems. This troubled person has to answer for their behaviour. Don't feel pressured to pay a fine or cover a bill. You have better things to do with your hard-earned money. If you're drowning in debt, talk to a debt management agency. There are many groups and organisations dedicated to helping people in your situation. If you play your cards right, you can consolidate your bills into one monthly payment and possibly eliminate the interest rate. On the 19th, the Full Moon will showcase your creative talent. You'll have a chance to sell your handiwork for a handsome profit. While this may not be a stable source of income, it will bring in some much-needed extra cash at the end of April.
CANCER (June 22nd - July 23rd)
On the 5th, the New Moon will attract a problematic career opportunity. Although you're eager to advance, you don't want to work with a famously toxic executive. Instead of subjecting yourself to their abuse, hold out for a better offer. You have tremendous leadership ability. It may be better to open your own business than work for someone else. Your path will become clearer after the 19th, when the Full Moon will help you sew up a real estate matter. Buying or selling a piece of property will cultivate stability. You may decide to launch a business from your home. Working for yourself will solve so many problems. You'll be able to choose your work associates.

April is your chance to strike out on your own.
LEO (July 24th - August 23rd)
Legal problems could block your path at the beginning of the month. The New Moon on the 5th warns against breaking the rules. You'll fare much better colouring inside the lines than defying authority. The last thing you want is to lose your job because you didn't want to follow procedure. If you are hit with a lawsuit, think about settling out of court. This will be far preferable than going through the time, frustration and expense of a trial. On the 19th, the Full Moon will prompt you to put some newly acquired skills to use. Your knowledge will attract a creative opportunity. If you're offered a teaching job, take it. You'll enjoy working with students who are eager to learn from you. Don't worry if you have to take a pay cut. Your earnings will improve as you gain more and more teaching experience. Having a job you enjoy is more precious than gold.
