April feels like new beginnings. When the first sign of spring comes out, it decides to motivate and inspire us to chase our dreams and do something big. April is a fascinating time for Cancer ascendant people in general. But, as the Cardinal (starter) sign of Summer, the sometimes cold and recluse Crab sure benefits from some heat. And that's precisely what April has to offer.
The reason why this season comes packed with such excitement for Cancerians is that it's the time when the Sun is exalted in your 10th house of action, reputation and ambition. The reason why the Sun gets so much power in your 10th house is that it can be fully visible and admired for the actions you take. This is quite the potent transit, especially for those of you who are 24, 36, 48 and 60, considering the tone-setting New Moon happening right on the first day of the month. With that said, this transit is sure to bring some advancement to your career life.
It's also important to note that you'll also have Jupiter in that house later in the year. This will bring many auspicious and exciting moments to your career life, and this moment in April is likely the beginning of this upward trend. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there.
On a more tricky note, Saturn and Mars will be conjoining in your 8th house. This is the place that often deals with debts and spending money in ways that don't necessarily feel good or sustain your life. Given that this is a transit related to the slow passing of Saturn through your 8th house that began in 2021, it's likely that some of you might be revisiting financial dealings with the government or loans that were initiated in the previous year. Tread this time carefully and try not to go spending too much money. The more you save, the better.
On a lighter note, however. Shortly after this, Mars and Saturn's drama starts to go down. Venus will be joining Jupiter in your 9th house of faith, travel and higher learning. With this transit, there's a high chance of a vacation, and considering the transit that precedes it, you might want to stick to your budget while you're out and about exploring the world. For those who are not quite as lucky, this 9th house transit can point to positive times coming ahead for those pursuing a higher education. You can expect the help of female figures in academia or a teaching position to help you understand some more significant questions that might've been troubling you. Relating this scenario back to the Mars and Saturn trial, this help could even be put towards some of your student debt. While there's nothing in the transits that imply this would be explicitly financial help, you can still expect some guidance on how to navigate the trying times.
Continuing with the positive vibes, we also have the Full Moon of the month happening in your 4th house of the family and home life. This month, the lunation is being ruled by Venus, who's feeling quite well and empowered. This then promises good fortune for you and your family. It might be a time to pay a visit to your parents, or even just hang out at home with the kids and your partner—if you have any, of course. Even still, we all know how Cancers might need the time to just chill on their own from time to time. In that case, even if you live by yourself, it might just be a good time to ground yourself, light some candles, feel cozy and even meditate by the moonlight. This lunation sure sounds like a grand time.
The very last significant transit of the month is the trine between Mercury and Pluto. This involves both your house of friends and allies, along with the place of romance and partnership. While Mercury and Pluto are not notably a romantic duo, this transit can still spark some interesting conversations either between you and your current partner or perhaps a future partner. The fact that Pluto is just getting ready to go retrograde on that day needs some attention, however. While these conversations can serve to strengthen bonds and keep any relationship interesting, they might actually get started out of old grudges and unaddressed past tensions. With that said, don't be afraid to touch on what might seem a challenging topic to whoever your audience might be. There's a very good chance of it leading to something greater.
April sure sounds like an interesting month. There's action, drama, and, of course, some well-deserved rewards sprinkled here and there. Don't hold yourself back this month. The secret to a movie-worthy story is in how much you're willing to dare take the unorthodox route.
