Life may not be especially colorful today, but reliability can be a great comfort, dear Aries, and it’s a good idea to take on some type of organizing efforts now. Circumstances and your own attitude facilitate following through on a dream, pet project, or other endeavor that’s close to your heart. Long-term projects begun very early today seem to have legs to stand on. This can also be a wonderfully creative time for you if you take a break from time to time to let things flow and allow yourself the freedom to express yourself as you wish. It’s a powerful time for teaming up in some way with a partner, who can be especially helpful. You are approaching an epiphany when it comes to a relationship this week.
Take advantage of clear, logical thinking this morning, Taurus. Even so, you can also draw upon your intuition quite effectively now. A sense of purpose or mission, as well as the drive for results, combine to offer you considerable focus for your mental energies, so choose a project that has long-term potential and work with it. It’s also a good time for career moves – small but important ones – and for clear thinking about a personal matter. While this continues to be a strong time for work behind the scenes, you sense that you should leave your cozy cocoon and branch out a little today, as there is good energy with you for sharing happiness with others. You may even find ways to make peace with the past now.
While you can be a little aloof in the morning, Gemini, your charisma remains strong. There can be a good feeling of sharing values, beliefs, or plans with someone else, or someone can reinforce your own now, and this stimulates confidence about the present and the future. You might return the favor by expressing that you find value in others’ opinions, ideas, and beliefs. While you tend to be a little serious this morning, you might find that answers come more easily when you share your problems today. Your faith in a particular goal, dream, or idea can build now. While your social life delivers today, you might find that settling in makes a lot of sense later today.
It’s a strong time for asking for what you want and for presenting your ideas, dear Cancer, and it’s especially good for making long-term plans. Enthusiasm for a project, particularly a practical or business-related one, is building now. You can be feeling that you are in charge and stronger than usual. You could experience more popularity, comfort, and ease, and people are interested in what you do. There is more idealism, cooperation, and giving one another the benefit of the doubt. You may be looked upon favorably by those in charge.
You’re likely to come to a very productive and realistic state of mind this morning, Leo, and you could be making solid, realistic plans for the future, particularly when it comes to inner happiness goals. You are able to envision what you can realistically achieve, and you might decide to share your vision with others. At the very least, put your plans to writing, and make lists as well as resolutions. Communications should be strong between a partner and yourself today. Others may be looking up to you in some way today, or seeing your best qualities in a new light, with the Sun (your ruler) shining its light on Jupiter in your sign. It’s a good time to get noticed.
You are more credible with your ruler, Mercury, hooking up nicely with stable, responsible Saturn this morning, Virgo. Others take note of what you say and any advice you may give, and part of your magnetic charm revolves around your maturity and ability to live in the here and now. You may be called upon for advice now. It’s a good time for long-term planning, particularly regarding financial or family goals. An emotional dilemma could unravel or seem to solve itself. There is a stronger attraction to what’s beneath the surface or hidden from sight, and you can delight in trying to figure things out.
Your inner energies and outside circumstances tend to be working well together right now, Libra, and you can accomplish a whole lot as a result. You might win recognition for your achievements now, or circumstances are such that you know you are earning respect. This is a good time for giving and receiving advice. Others can be counted upon, and a partner might be a good sounding board for your own ideas or thoughts. There can be a relieving understanding or epiphany today, and you are especially willing to let go of grudges.
Love matters might strengthen today, Scorpio, particularly with displays of respect and true friendship. Space is part of that equation. Long-term financial planning can be very successful now, and it’s a good time for research and investigation, as you are especially keen and able to spot details that you might overlook on another day, as well as organization or reorganization. Good energy is with you for solving a work problem. Objectivity and rationality are in large supply now, but intuition can also be tapped for work or health issues. You are quick to forgive and possibly even forget (although the latter is always a little more difficult) today with the Sun and Jupiter in harmony.
This morning is good for diving into a project that requires attention to detail, Sagittarius, as thinking is strongly practical and realistic, particularly regarding creative projects, children, or romantic relationships. You tend to be on the right track, both practically and intuitively. Even if conversations are not especially colorful right now, they can be helpful. As the day advances, you can feel quite enthused on creative or romantic lines. It’s a good time for enjoying with a friend, and for focusing on light-hearted topics. It’s a good time for bonding, teaming up, and forgiving or building trust.
Common sense and a desire to plan ahead are with you today, and especially this morning, Capricorn. It’s a good time for editing, redoing, and organizing, or for putting the finishing touches on a special project, as you easily hone in on errors, and you are emotionally prepared to wrap something up. Family matters thrive as you are both objective and intuitive – a rare combination – when it comes to domestic issues and relationships. There can be a positive show of support later today. You may be anxious to put a tricky problem behind you.
Today is good for asking for what you want, Aquarius, as well as for appreciation or recognition for the work you do and your intelligence or insight. Your eye for details is pronounced and can be put to full use now in both personal and professional matters. Your communications are likely to be received well. In fact, you may be in the position to offer advice or counsel. Others can benefit from your know-how. Positive feedback can fuel your motivation to do your best and your confidence and enthusiasm. You may be expressing yourself more positively. It’s a good time to team up with a partner or to come to important agreements.
Good energy is with you for career and financial matters today, Pisces, and especially financial planning, asking for a loan, or other practical activities that help you improve your business and professional interests. A partner can be especially helpful and might offer some very sound advice. You might decide to face something you’ve let slide or put on a shelf, and this feels good. Keep your mind open, but also focused on the details that are especially important today. There can be renewed hope or optimism about finances or work now.

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 2nd:
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).
