Aries April 2019There is a balance to be struck between your needs and those of others. In some cases, you may feel that although someone has paid you a good turn or done you a favour, what they expect in return is somewhat disproportionate.
Someone may be thinking they are doing you such a big favour when in fact, you could do without their input. You certainly need to sort the wheat from the chaff regarding your contacts with others; who is making a contribution to your overall well-being and who is just a time waster – right now, you need to distance yourself from the people who are taking up more of your time than they merit.
Advice this month is both useful and useless; indeed, some advice you receive may add to worries and fears unnecessarily – you should trust yourself more and have more confidence in your ability to not only make the right choice but to make the choice you make work for you.
Mercury goes retrograde in Taurus on the 10th and remains so for the rest of the month, which means that you should make any financial decisions before the 10th and then hold back on any more decisions regarding money. After the 10th is also not the best time for negotiating payment terms with others or transferring money as things tend to go wrong. In all matters regarding bills, payments, cheques, etc., allow extra time for things to clear and ensure you have cash at the ready to deal with unexpected costs or to bridge a gap while payments come through. Do not over-commit yourself financially this month as with Mercury retrograde, financial matters often become unpredictable or subject to change and delay, meaning you can be caught out.
This month, nagging doubts and worries can both drain energy and also undermine your confidence – you are inclined to question yourself and doubt your abilities. The best way to deal with this, is to keep your own counsel and learn to quieten the voices inside by sticking with things that work for you. The key is not allowing doubts to force you to make constant changes – rather stick to one course and persist despite setbacks.
Aries in Love April 2019In marriages the Mercury retrograde can cause disagreements about how to spend money; however, this can flag up more fundamental differences you have regarding values. There can also be boundary issues in relationships and the need for more tolerance and respect – there can be no ‘my way or the highway’ style attitudes; however, you are feeling very territorial and are not in the mode of backing down. The problem for relationships this month is Aries will quickly become entrenched in their views and any change will feel like a defeat and will result in wounded pride. You should try not to identify so strongly with everything from opinions to values; take a step back and ask yourself if what you are fighting for is worth the hassle.
Aggressive and snappy, you can often come across as confrontational this month even without knowing it, and as a result, those closest to you can become a little wary of you; this can mean that love does not run smoothly.
You should be more aware of yourself and how you are coming across, and you should watch out for any passive aggressive behaviour.
In new relationships, things can be rather tricky as you get to know each other better and adjust to one another’s needs. There may also be logistical issues in love – who pays for what, who travels to see who, whose friends get priority; when you do what – many of these things can prove more testing than expected and can actually uncover serious flaws. One should not ignore the small things right now in new relationships as these small things may foreshadow bigger problems down the line.
Aries in Career Life April 2019You need to choose your associates with care this month – sometimes you can hit it off really fast with a new client or new business associate and everything seems just swell until the wheels come off. Too high, too fast, too soon are three phrases to guard against as not all is what it seems. It is not all bad, but more caution is needed as not everyone who makes promises this month will be able to deliver.
Beware of extending credit terms that are too generous or being to lenient regarding chasing up debts. Do not believe that anyone has enough money until you see the colour of that money as talk is cheap right now.
You can land up doing a lot of other people’s work this month, and so make sure that if you do that, you are happy doing that or draw a line.
Often, business trips or travel to meet a prospective client turns out to be a waste of time, and so if you do make a trip, make sure that you at least get some value from it.
Do not be afraid of going it alone this month – there is this feeling within you that you are missing something and that some person or some thing (i.e., more software, more promotional activities, more expertise, etc.) can fill that gap, and you may throw good money after bad paying for help, advice, expertise, or new software when what you already have and what you already know is sufficient.
The thing is to work with what you have and to look within yourself, your company, your current framework for solutions, instead of chasing after some magical quick fix that does not exist – you could waste money and find you learned nothing.
