The April 4 Full Moon is full of family love or perhaps weighty family concerns. You may be the only who cares. Everyone else may be work obsessed, but don't hold it against them. They could be dealing with short-lived problems that seem important. Make big changes around the house at the New Moon of April 18. Not everyone will like everything, but go ahead and please yourself. You may even want to revive something that you used to dislike. That was then, this is now. Enjoy some peace and quiet and the company of agreeable people on April 29 and April 30.
Love - Romantic
A Capricorn is at his/her best when wielding some kind of power. On the 3rd, 4th, and 5th, just make sure that power isn't over your partner, or you may run into trouble. The lesson of this month is working together, planning together, living and communicating together. If one person's stronger and louder, you may feel like things are okay. But resentments could be stored for the future. Let the 9th, 10th, and 11th bring you back together in a softer and more loving way. Learning to compromise doesn't mean losing out on what you really want. On the 15th and 16th, think about what you have in the bank, literally and figuratively. Discussing finances before settling down creates more trust going forward, but love and communication are also valuable resources. Don't forget to account for them when figuring your bottom line. The 20th brings a correction of course. If you've said or done something silly, take responsibility right off the bat. Leaving it to fester only makes it worse. By the 24th, bringing a little more attention to your work-life balance may be in order. Don't let your health suffer trying to be all things to all people. You're only human, after all.
Business - Money
The keyword for April is: pacing. There's no question that you are a bundle of ambition but if weighed down with responsibility you need to lift the load before you find that you can't give 100 percent. The April Eclipse suggests abrupt changes in activities so you need to be ready to jump in. The word 'delegation' comes into play and it should be your focus through April 9th. Although no one can be trusted, as you and others trust yourself, this is the time when you might instinctively know the difference between friend and foe. April 10th is your lucky day. If job hunting, this is the time to send out resumes. Don't forget follow-up calls and thank-you notes. Ask for favors of those who would help if they could, if they just knew what you needed. You are very persuasive on April 14th, when you should meet with authority figures and get your ideas across. You end the month the image of efficiency, organized and standing on a rock-solid foundation. You are ready for May, ending on a winning note rather than a whining one because you are bone-tired. Synchronously, the pace picks up. Aren't you glad you are ready?
