April: Mars, the planet of courage and enterprise, starts the month in a powerful and close alignment with stern Saturn, reaffirming that projects can positively flourish if we cultivate discipline, patience and persistence. Powerful Pluto and expansive Jupiter start the month together in Capricorn, creating the opportunity for some deep and uncomfortable truths to be revealed; but this unusual cosmic pattern also spells opportunity and change.

It’s the perfect time to arrange meetings, network and link up with like-minded people.
