You might have a hard time focusing today, which can result in unnecessary tension or frustration, Aries. Take a light schedule now, if possible, as you can easily become distracted and your mind can wander. Communicating with sensitivity is in order today – you’re certainly feeling more compassionate and sensitive, but the words to express it may not be readily available! Strategies and plans on business and financial levels can be made now, and intuition about value is strong. Friendships that are based on shared understanding may very well develop now.
This is one of your more magnetic days, dear Taurus. You might be appreciated for your ability to heal and soothe, and to see problems in unique ways. While it’s not the best time for productivity, as social matters tend to distract you from concentrating on work or facts and figures, you can be quite in tune with what’s in your heart. Your personal life is heating up in an exciting way with both Venus and Mars in your sign now. This brings dynamic and likely dramatic energy to your social life. Right now, you can help others with sensitive matters. You are coming across well, with dignity.
There can be extra sensitivity today when it comes to work or your reputation, dear Gemini. You might have a disagreement with a friend, but consider talking things through. Once past communication errors, you are likely to find that there is more tolerance and openness today than seems to be the case on the surface of things. A modest, sincere approach to others serves you best today. You may be in the position to set trends or lead in some way now. A tricky situation from the past may be resolved.
This is a good day for bringing something new and improved to a friendship, Cancer, if you can get past a few communication snafus. Try not to take something that’s said the wrong way. You are sensitive, but you’re also perceptive enough to see beyond the surface of things and to find the good intentions behind the words. Today, you are especially fair with others, and you can help others heal if they need it. This is a good time for combining talents or pooling resources in order to work on a joint venture.
Don’t pull your hair out if solutions to problems are not immediately apparent today, Leo. There can be some discomfort when it comes to arriving at agreements with others. While people seem to be polite, there can be underlying tension involved, and a sense that there’s more to a story than is communicated. Wind yourself down if you feel that you’re getting worked up over trivial matters. Personal appeal professionally or publicly is strong now, and both support and backing are there if you need it. Part of this is due to your original and unique approach to the work you do, and others are seeing this special quality.
You may feel a little put off by needing to adapt to others’ schedules and agendas today, dear Virgo. You’re happy to do so if others show their appreciation, even in small ways, but without that, you can become very frustrated. Important relationship skills are developing today nevertheless. Just be yourself and do only what you truly want to do, and watch as others appreciate your sincerity and helpfulness. Personal magnetism is quiet but very effective today and tomorrow.
Energy in your relationships can be hot and cold today, Libra. On one hand, you want to be closer to someone, and on the other, you’re sensitive to what may or may not be said. Once past the communication missteps, however, you can bring up personal matters and get to the bottom of them. Be open and avoid focusing too seriously on choice of words or decorum for best results. There can be a reward of sorts for past kindnesses, and your own charitable instincts are aroused now. Looking beyond the superficial brings rewards today.
Inflated expectations of others and of circumstances can get the best of you today, dear Scorpio, but only if you let this happen. With self-awareness, the day can be quite magical, in fact. Watch that you don’t neglect important details, particularly on the job, but also try to take some of the pressure off. The trick today is to be willing to learn from one another and to change automatic behaviors and responses that have not worked for us in the past. You have much to learn and to offer to others these days with Venus and now Mars in your partnership sector. What you learn can be re-invested into your relationships, and this in turn strengthens them further. As you let others take the stage, new levels open up, and relationships have a chance to grow.
There can be a feeling that you don’t have a solid purpose or direction today, dear Sagittarius, but keep in mind that it’s a very temporary mood or state of mind. In fact, this will turn around as early as tomorrow morning. Sometimes a symptom of inner unrest is a tendency to focus too greatly on making changes in the home – ones that aren’t necessarily productive. Another possible sign is a desire to escape routines whenever feasible. However you express inner discontent, this may be a day in which you are itching to do something different, but having a hard time envisioning what it is you’d like to change. Things will become clearer in the coming days.
It’s not the best day for making commitments or for realistic thinking and communicating, dear Capricorn. We can be sensitive about what’s communicated, or even what is left unsaid. Even so, we can learn from our differences today if we are creative enough to overlook communication troubles. In fact, it can be a strong time for connecting with a lover or love interest. There can be a lively exchange of feeling and expression of affection now, choice of words aside. Artistic interests are favored. Nonverbal expressions of feeling can be well-received.
You can feel enthusiastic today, but there can be some social awkwardness at times, dear Aquarius. Instincts are strong, but communications and choice of words can be iffy. You sense and appreciate sincerity, and there can be times when you feel that conversations are a little superficial. However, if you dig a little deeper, you might very well find that intentions are good. Avoid taking too much of what you hear to heart. You’re in the mood to experiment and invent, and you’re unlikely to have much patience for traditional, monotonous tasks. You are very willing to cooperate now, but if this means compromising or stifling your creativity, you’re likely to happily go your own way.
Avoid major purchases just for the time being, as there can be a bit of a fog surrounding the critical details of practical matters today, dear Pisces. This is a good time for connecting with someone and feeling you are growing in a relationship, however. The key is to avoid approaching people and situations in the same ways or drawing on the same patterns that haven’t worked well in the past. You are open to new approaches. You are communicating with more charm today, even if there are some missteps when it comes to choice of words.

BALANCE OF SIGNS
Scores: Aries 6; Taurus 4; Gemini 0; Cancer 0; Leo 1; Virgo 3; Libra 0; Scorpio 0; Sagittarius 1; Capricorn 1; Aquarius 0; Pisces 1
Initiating, pioneering energy. Independent, bold, courageous, assertive, fiery, inspirational, direct, decisive. Can be egotistical, impulsive, impatient, aggressive, lacking subtlety.
Stable and enduring, strong values, unyielding, earthy, acquisitive, strong desires. Can be stuck, stubborn, overly possessive, self-indulgent.
Meticulous, discriminating, pure, practical, health conscious, hard working. Can be hyper-critical, petty and perfectionistic.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
Scores: Fire 8; Earth 8; Air 0; Water 1
Fire is enthusiastic, dynamic, and spontaneous, but lacks reflection. We are more courageous and adventurous now, with a tendency to act before thinking. There is little concern about what happened in the past. We are competitive and possibly impatient or bored easily.
We are especially in touch with the physical world. We consider what we’ve learned and experienced in the past in order to make the most of the present. We can be cautious, practical, and possibly unimaginative. We are deliberate and can pace ourselves well. We need hands-on experience and are not impressed with theory as much as we are with results. Routines are tolerable and comforting.
We may have a difficult time being objective or detached. We may not be especially communicative.
There may be some insensitivity or lack of empathy now. We may be out of touch with what we’re feeling or with our emotional needs. We may be tougher than usual now, and more inclined to follow mental or practical considerations than we are to listen to our intuition.
BALANCE OF MODES
Scores: Cardinal 7; Fixed 5; Mutable 5
The modes are balanced in this chart.
LUNAR PHASE: GIBBOUS
Moon 135 to 180 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are seeking meaning and value to our goals. This is a time for analyzing, questioning, perfecting, and improving.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on April 1st:
Note that when an aspect is Applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is Separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
THE MOON IN VIRGO
You will experience a strong link between the emotions and the body. You have a need for perfection. You may become ill when under stress. Your mother may be critical or a perfectionist. She will provide you with structure and order.

OPPOSITION NEPTUNE Orb 2°12′ Separating
You are drawn to unusual people. Positively these people may be spiritual and artistic, or negatively they may be confused and drunk. You may idealise other people and need to be more realistic.

You are a powerful person with leadership skills. You are intense, quick to get to the point, and enjoy a challenge. You understand what motivates other people.
