Scorpio ♏ April 2020 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


Between them the Sun, Mercury and Venus, collectively the faster planets who return to the same areas of your chart at around the same time each year, will put and keep the focus on playful, work and relationship matters this month. While the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your work sector before returning to your relationship sector on 20th April, Venus and Mercury can either be ahead or behind and this month it is a case of both. Venus is ahead and while she begins the month in your relationship sector she will be gone by 4th April, long before the Sun returns on 20th April and Mercury on 28th April.

On the other hand, held back by a retrograde phase Mercury is running behind, though will catch up by the end of the month. Mercury will start the month in a playful part of your chart, where the Sun left last month and Venus the month before. However, after spending from 11th April to 28th April in your work sector, helping the Sun in his final days here, Mercury will end the month in your relationship sector. This is when, as the planet of communication, Mercury can turn his focus onto ensuring the communication lines are open.

Venus will continue to move ahead of both the Sun and Mercury and on 4th April will return to your financial sector. It is here that Venus will be forced to wait for the Sun and Mercury to catch up, spending four months here rather than the 24 days she would normally spend fuelling your financial confidence, updating your financial wish list and attracting opportune outcomes. During this time Venus will enjoy the support of Saturn and Mars, who are spending their first full month together in your home and family sector since 1994.

LoveScorpio April 2020 Love Horoscope

Because the Sun will always end April in your relationship sector, this is the latest point in any year when the focus can shift onto your relationships. However, things changed when Uranus returned to your relationship sector in March 2019, keeping the focus permanently on your relationships until he leaves in 2026. However, as a slow outer planet, Uranus largely operates in the background, silently and sometimes not so silently, working to keep things real and authentic. It is when the faster moving planets move through that a focus on your relationships moves from being something that happens in the background.

While the Sun’s return was always going to put the solar spotlight on your relationships by 20th April, you already have a head start. It was early last month that Venus returned, months earlier than she did last year. With Venus gone by 4th April, over two weeks before the Sun returns, this gives the planet of love a chance to separate her agenda. Where the Sun will turn the solar spotlight on your relationships in order to perform the reality checks and the relationship housekeeping that happens at this time every year, Venus is more focused on updating your wish list.

Already slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next month, had Venus spent the 24 days she normally spends here she would have left last month. Instead, the planet of love is still here in the early days of the month, giving your heart a voice and a chance to update your relationship wish list. Held back by his retrograde turn last month Mercury, the planet of communication won’t return until 28th April, returning in the final days of the month to ensure the communication lines are open. In the meantime, with no planetary activity on the romantic front, the Moon’s visit to your relationship sector from 18th April to 20th April is an important chance to embrace the spirit of romance.

MoneyScorpio April 2020 Money Horoscope

While you start the month with no planetary activity in either of your two money houses that is about to change. When Mars left your income sector in February he not only wrapped up his own nearly seven week visit but 16 months of near continuous planetary activity. As lucky Jupiter only wrapped up a 13 month visit in December, together with Mars’ time here this has created a lot of momentum and untapped income potential that you will continue to mine for the rest of the year. April was a firebreak month, with a chance to let things settle on the income front and for the momentum banked to take hold.

Venus, the planet of money was in your work sector when Mars left your income sector in February so was able to use knowledge of where that untapped income potential is, in order to steer work and job matters in a lucrative direction. Whether it is the Sun, in your work sector for the first three weeks of April or Mercury from 11th April, they will continue to draw on what has already been banked. So while there is no planetary activity in your income sector, there is every reason for confidence, even though this is more tied into what you are doing on the job front. It is on the financial front, where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have that things are about to get exciting.

With the Sun not returning to your financial sector until later next month, Venus’ return on 4th April is extraordinarily early. So early that instead of spending just 24 days fuelling your financial confidence, updating your financial wish list and working to attract positive outcomes, a retrograde turn next month will keep Venus here for four months. Venus is not focused on the reality checks that the Sun and Mercury will eventually bring, though she is creating the blueprint that they will eventually follow.

CareerScorpio April 2020 Career Horoscope

There is something very comforting about the normality of having the Sun always spend the first three weeks of April in your work sector but also of knowing that Mars will spend the second half of the year here. This takes away the pressure of having to reinvent the wheel or to seize opportunities now, especially if either you or the world itself aren’t ready for it right now. At the same time, because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your work sector, always has and always will, this is not something that you have to overthink.

Held back by a retrograde phase, Mercury will finally return to your work sector on 11th April, where he will take over from where the Sun leaves off when he leaves on 20th April. Until leaving on 28th April Mercury will give you the intellectually savvy edge and articulation needed to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. While the solar spotlight is still on your work situation, job matters and options, whether it is business as usual on the job front or not, this provides transparency and objectivity, allowing you to see all your options and what they mean. No matter what your reality on the job front this month, this puts the power in your hands.

At the same time, it is events yet to make an impact that will change the whole dynamics for Mercury and his time here. Because Venus has already been and gone you have had a chance to focus on the ‘what’, while the Sun will keep the focus on ‘what is’ until he leaves. Mercury’s focus is on the ‘when, where and how’ and as the last of the faster moving planets to move through, his return on 11th April should usher in a need to start making choices, decisions and plans. While that is still true in the short term there is no call to finalise anything for with Mars returning in June and then not leaving until January 2021, the biggest opportunities are in the second half of the year.
