Cancer Horoscope for April 2013
By Susan Miller
You have just arrived at your most important month of 2013 for professional progress and affairs, and if you play your cards right, you should see a major breakthrough in the weeks ahead. Top-level positions are hard to get, as is new business, but if you begin interviewing or pitching now, you have the best new moon of the year to help you. Along with the new moon in Aries will come the Sun, Uranus, Mars, and Venus - all in Aries, too - to help you. All these will gather in early April to get things ready for the majestic new moon to arrive April 10, at 21 degrees Aries. Once that new moon arrives, hold on to your hat - things will move very quickly, because Aries is fire, and fire is fast!
To have FIVE cosmic bodies in your tenth house of honors, awards, achievement, and fame is remarkable, and each will act like little loyal friends dedicated to seeing you get ahead. To have Uranus as part of your team of supporters says that when offers come up, they will come up suddenly and surprise you. You may find yourself standing at the right place at the right time. Mars will be part of the team too, and that's good news, for it means you will be very motivated to investigate any opportunity presented to you.
Having Mars now in your prestigious tenth house of career success is very good news, and you will have Mars there until April 19. Mars typically stays six weeks (he arrived in March) and won't be back again to your tenth house of fame and honors for two more years. While you still have him at your side, you must make the most of this, by making appointments for interviews and presentations. Be determined to see as many high level people as will let you through the door. Ask friends for tips and introductions too, and leave no stone unturned from April 1 to 19. Show the world that you are on a mission to make a name for yourself and you will see results!
One day to watch will be April 6, when Mars and Venus align perfectly in your house of reputation and career success. This would be an ideal day to schedule an interview. Your natural charm will be very strong, and I bet you could turn anything to your advantage on this day. Give it four gold stars!
Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck, is in Gemini, and is still orbiting in a hidden place in your chart (twelfth house). In this area, benefic Jupiter will see to it that you get help from a VIP who cares about your progress and will do all he can to see you do well. You may not be aware of this person who has singled you out to be groomed for a bigger role in the future. If you do find out, you will have to promise to keep the identity of this VIP confidential. You really do have a guardian angel, dear Cancer - and it's not the fuzzy blue kind in animated films - but a real life guardian angel who will go the distance to help you do well.
Every plot needs a villain (a harsh word, I agree; I am over-dramatizing a little here to help you see the contrast). The "villain" this month might be your present or ex-partner, most likely a person you are linked to in the romantic or business sense. This partner may be jealous of your career success now, or if in business, is staying up nights thinking of ways to ride your coattails. This person is represented by Pluto in your chart, and when under difficult aspects, Pluto can be arrogant, domineering, underhanded, or pushy. If you are not attached to anyone in love or business, you may have to fend off a jealous, even ruthless competitor. Don't let this person distract you or try to stop you. This month, you'll be unstoppable, so stay strong.
If you are out of work, not only will you be able to uncover new job opportunities, you will find ones that are a step up from the position you used to do. I can't tell if you will change companies or work in the same company and get a promotion, but either way, you will be happy because you can move up. The new position you would eventually get (if you start to interview in early to mid-April) would not be a lateral move! Do not lower your sights or become intimidated by the interview process. If you are self-employed, use this month to start pitching new business - a prestigious one.
With so many planets in Aries, you may now venture into very new territory, where few have experience with the field, and that will attract you, too. With Venus, Mars, Uranus, the Sun, and new moon (April 10) and soon Mercury to head to Aries too, April 13 to April 30, the cosmos is speaking clearly. This is a highly adventuresome, experimental, entrepreneurial month. If you have an idea for goods or services that you've thoroughly researched and hope to launch soon, do so just after April 10.
On April 19, Mercury will link up with Uranus, and you may get very surprising career news. This will happen in your house of fame, but it is hard to know which way news will go. Pluto will be in very hard "square" 90-degree angle to both Mercury and Uranus, so you may feel pressure to conform to someone's ideas. Most likely, this would be a client's ideas and dictates, and despite your misgivings you will likely have to give in, simply for practical purposes. Let's think good thoughts, and work to make it a positive day.
A purely wonderful day will be April 23, when Mercury will work beautifully with Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck, an ideal day to sign a contract, accept a new position, or call on a new client.
The emphasis on your career will wind down by the third week of April, the reason why you must give professional matters all you've got to give at the start of April.
By April 19, a new breezy, social influence will start up. The Sun, Venus, and Mars will visit Taurus, a very compatible sign for you, and light your house of friends, fun, and events. If you want to continue the progress you were making in your career, you will need to change tactics and work in a softer, more social way, by networking more and being out and about socializing in person. Presenting ideas the formal way will be less effective than doing so over drinks or lunch, for example.
On April 25, the full moon, lunar eclipse in Scorpio 7 degrees, will light your house of true love and put the spotlight on the person you've been dating, or a pregnancy or child you have now. These matters come under your fifth house.
This is a fairly new series of eclipses, first seen on November 13, 2012 last year, and it was also in Scorpio. Eclipses in Taurus-Scorpio will continue to come by every six months until October 23, 2014. After that, there will be no more eclipses in this series until November 2024. This series are nearly identical in degree and date as eclipses that came by in 1994.
Think back to that first eclipse on November 13 last year - this one, April 7, may advance the discussions you had back then to a new level this month, near April 25.
Some sort of situation will arise at eclipse time (April 25) that will force you to make a very long-term decision. Lunar eclipses bring endings, so something is apparently about to come to fullness. You may a break up from a relationship, or begin one, say, if you should meet someone new. Conversely, it is also possible you will decide to bring a relationship closer, in a very serious way, say, with an engagement, for example. With Saturn orbiting very close to this full moon eclipse of April 25, you will be making a commitment or a final decision that will last a very long time, possibly a lifetime, and one you won't be able to reverse. Your decision may involve your relationship or one of your children (or a pregnancy).
Eclipses mark momentous moments of our lives, and also bring a floodlight of truth to the situation that you had not seen previously. Eclipses make us grow up, no matter what age we happen to be at the time, and force us to move forward, one way or another. Eclipses cannot tolerate status quo. The universe wants to see that you are progressing, so if you've been stuck, it will push you forward in any way that will get you out of that rut and moving again. If the relationship has no future, the events of the eclipse will show you this truth in a very black and white way, so that you will leave and give yourself greater possibilities with someone new.
A creative project of yours may finish up during this week too, for the fifth house will be so lit up now, and if so, this project appears to be vitally important to you. The fact that you would be wrapping up a project at eclipse time suggests it may become a stepping stone to other important projects in the future.
If your birthday falls on June 27, plus or minus five days, you will feel this eclipse the more than other Cancers you know, as the mathematical degrees are reaching out to your Sun. This eclipse will also be important to you, and beneficial to you, especially if you have a natal planet at 6 degrees (plus or minus five degrees) of Cancer, Pisces, or Scorpio.
Over the weekend of April 27-28, Saturn will oppose the Sun, a very harsh aspect that would make you sensitive to criticism and that may exhaust you. Your second house of earned income is governed by the Sun, so you may find that money is very tight, perhaps because of a check you find out you need to write within five days of the eclipse April 25. Some things cannot be helped, so just go with the flow, dear Cancer. Very bright days are due you in May!
You have a sensational career month coming up, and it will be unlike any you've seen in recent years. Planets lining up in Aries suggest you will get at least one offer that you will want to take seriously. Uranus (genius, and all things new), Mars (courage and determination), Venus (pure enjoyment), Sun (prestige and authority), plus the important new moon in Aries, April 10, package all this energy and send it to you in a way that will be instantly available and useful to you. You will have nearly two weeks after April 10 in which to act - do so! All that you do in that time will have the power to shape your professional life for a year or for forever!
Mars will play a leading role, an upbeat indication for success, because Mars will act as a booster rocket and magnifier to your efforts, giving your actions more power and push. With Venus also orbiting close to that new moon, you are likely to engender lots of popularity and support for your visions. If you do land a promotion or new position, it will bring you into a very new, pioneering area or industry, and also likely allow you to work in an autonomous way rather than be overly directed by a supervisor. With Mars in your house of prestige, you won't find it hard to get the attention of top level VIPs, but you must provide the energy - work hard now and see results.
With such emphasis on Aries, you might be opening your own business, and if so, the time after the new moon, April 10, would be the time to do so. Oddly, you and a business partner, agent, broker, or other collaborator may not see eye-to-eye about a plan or strategic approach you will offer. If so, if you are convinced you are right, you may have to "go rough" and do it anyway. It is also possible that you will be dealing with a pushy, domineering client, romantic or business partner jealous of your success, or a ruthless competitor who will stop at nothing to get a piece of your pie.
An important lunar full moon eclipse in Scorpio is due April 25 and from this point on, will direct your attention to your romantic and social life. If you are dating, you may hear news that is upsetting, but that will illuminate information that you need. If someone you have been dating has been duplicitous, you will find out now. Saturn will be orbiting very close to the moon and will emphasize the need to be realistic and practical. Whatever comes up will require instant action or decision, and will also influence the weekend of April 27-28. That weekend would not be the time to be away on a trip or to have anything of vital importance on your agenda.
This same eclipse may instead put emphasis a child you have now, or a pregnancy. See what comes up, and keep your schedule light. If you were born at the end of June, you will felt this eclipse the most, but you will be the most likely Cancer to find a solid, quick solution to the matter that comes up.
Dates to note Cancer:
Most romantic dates: April 6-7, 11, 12, 16, 17, and 20-21.
Venus goes into Taurus on April 15 until May 31, marking a great time for you to socialize.
Mars will join Venus in Taurus on April 20 to stay until May 30, another sign that life is about to get easier and more fun.
Pluto will retrograde starting April 12 until September - you may rethink a romantic or business alliance during that time.
On April 19 and 20 set aside time to generate ideas for a work project. Thanks to the meeting of Mercury and Uranus, you could be surprised at how special those ideas turn out to be.
A confidential interview or meeting for your career may turn out to be spectacular on April 23. Mercury will contact Jupiter, so it appears someone from behind the scenes will look out for you.
April 25 brings the full moon lunar eclipse in Scorpio, to light your house of love. Events will be dramatic. The outcome of this full moon will depend on how things have been going all along. You may break-up or promise your love forever.
