beliefnet astrology matthew currie incompatible signsA typical horoscope lays out what you can expect for yourself in the next week or month based on your Sun Sign. That sort of thing is great, sure… especially if you happen to be the only person on your planet. Astrology, like life in general, is a lot more complicated than “there are twelve types of people, and here’s what’s going to happen to them today.”

This “horoscope” is a listing of the major planetary aspects, ingresses, and events for April 2018. Each aspect is described below, with the date the aspect is exact and a “+/-” which indicates the number of days that aspect will be most in effect. Generally, the closer to the exact date, the more pronounced the effect of the transit. And of course, as with everything else in life: your mileage may vary.

But first, a word about aspects in general. Conjunctions, squares and oppositions can all be difficult. They generate the sort of energy that can get all up in your face and is hard to ignore, but it’s hard to get much done in life without the raw energy they supply. Trines and sextiles are helpful and constructive, but it’s easy to miss out on the opportunities they provide unless you make an effort. And a quincunx? Well, that’s just plain odd.

Aug 1 Mars square Uranus
(+/- 10 days) Tempers and sex drives can become awkward, uncomfortable, and unexpected. Keep an eye on your blood pressure — both figuratively and literally.

Aug 3 Mars sextile Chiron
(+/- 6 days) This could be an excellent time to confront the people and situations which caused you deep emotional harm in your past, or your feelings about those things, in a relatively constructive manner.

Aug 6 Venus enters Libra

Aug 6 Sun square Jupiter
(+/- 3 days) Egos get inflated and possibly a little bruised.

Aug 7 Uranus Retrograde

Aug 7 Venus trine Mars
(+/- 4 days) A good time for meeting, greeting, and socializing. Also: sex drives get turned up a notch.

Aug 8 Venus opposite Chiron
(+/- 3 days) Others may have hurt you, but now could be a good time to make peace with both the damage and the people responsible.

Aug 8 Sun conjunct Mercury
(+/- 3 days) You may be having powerful thoughts and ideas, but they may prove difficult to express properly.

Aug 9 Venus quincunx Uranus
(+/- 4 days) Strange and unusual circumstances arise in people’s love lives.

Aug 9 Venus square Saturn
(+/- 4 days) Some days are all work and no play, and that applies to your love life, your budget, and your diet sometimes.

Aug 11 New Moon Solar Eclipse at 18 Leo

Aug 11 Mercury square Jupiter
(+/- 3 days) You have a lot to say, and important opinions to share. Now, please resist the urge to shout those opinions.

Aug 12 Mars Retrograde enters Capricorn

Aug 18 Mercury sextile Venus
(+/- 3 days) An excellent time for creativity and writing a love letter.

Aug 19 Mercury goes direct in Leo

Aug 19   Jupiter trine Neptune
(+/- 12 days) An island of peace in an ocean of madness. “Eat, pray, love” isn’t just a book or a movie… it’s also a good idea.

Aug 22  Venus quincunx Neptune
(+/- 4 days) You love it, you want it… but can you afford it?

Aug 25 Sun trine Uranus
(+/- 4 days) It’s good to be an individual and to express it your own way. Be yourself — no one else has the clothes for it.

Aug 25 Sun trine Saturn
(+/- 5 days) A good time to “get your act together” and make some positive changes in your life.

Aug 26 Full Moon 3 degrees Pisces
Hey, at least it’s not another Eclipse, am I right…?

Aug 26 Venus square Pluto
(+/-4 days) Your appetite for love and caring and fried food are amplified — try not to shove anyone out of the way to the buffet table.

Aug 27 Saturn trine Uranus
(+/-12 days) Possibly the most useful aspect of the year!

Aug 28 2018 Mercury square Jupiter
