April 2017 Horoscopes
If you took a picture of the position of the planets in the nightly sky on April 1-30, you would see very little change. As a matter of fact, almost all planets are going through a time of retro gradation at one point or another during this month. Retro gradation happens when, from the point of view of our beautiful planet, other planets seem to move backwards. This phenomenon literally shows the retrograding planets in the sky moving in the opposite direction they usually do.
The only planet not affected by retro gradation is Mars (this is excluding luminaries that never retrograde and very slow planets that move so slow we hardly notice their progression within a single month - Uranus and Neptune). If you are familiar with comic characters, this situation would make planet Earth and all that lives on it look like “The Flash” from DC Comics or “QuickSilver” from X-Men. Time seems to slow down and almost stop while our consciousness (Sun), imagination (Moon) and will (Mars) remain fully aware and active.
This is a great opportunity to complete what is behind, revise what seems odd, achieve what was impossible, and to do this extra travel that will allow us to get the special knowledge or advice we need. The aspects are very beneficial, giving us a chance to catch up with all aspects of our lives.
All this sounds extraordinary, but, there is also a trap. While time passes throughout this special month, we may forget the usual rhythm of things. When this pause in time will resume to its normal pace, we have to be ready. It won’t be time anymore to do a quick fix. In other words, don’t be over ambitious. If you start a new project thinking, “There will be a magic that will allow me to do this” but it’s only half complete by the end of the month, it will probably never get finished and you will feel fooled by this April marvel.
Since we all have a little bit of each sign within us, consider each of the following as addressing a specific part of yourself. Read it all for every aspect within yourself.
