Monthly Cancer Horoscope April 2015Managing data and the flow of information is top priority this month. Saturn, the planet of responsibility, slips back into your 3rd House of Communication on April 7, making you more accountable for the messages you send and challenging you to express yourself more precisely for the next few months. Study issues carefully before sharing your comments—others will easily detect errors. Mercury the Messenger adds another layer of complication when it turns retrograde on April 18. Its backward march in your 11th House of Groups until May 11 increases the likelihood of misunderstandings with friends and colleagues. Verify facts and doublecheck what you hear to reduce problems. Reconnecting with old pals or co-workers and refining details in team projects are positive activities during this period.
New responsibilities will likely follow the irrepressible Aries New Moon in your 10th House of Career on April 14. You may feel overburdened with tasks for which you’re ill prepared. Still, a spark of excitement can motivate you to initiate projects in your professional life that could accelerate your climb up the ladder of success. Agitation aroused by this New Moon will likely settle when the Sun enters stable Taurus on April 20. Reliable allies are there to support you if you’re willing to ask for their help.
The fourth opposition of dutiful Saturn and rebellious Uranus returns on April 26 as part of a series that began on November 4, 2013, and ends on July 26. The ongoing struggle between self-expression and your obligations to others can flare up again to remind you how important it is to balance your external commitments with time for personal pleasure and play.
