Taurus ♉ April 2020 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


While the Sun won’t return to Taurus until 20th April to begin your birthday month and new solar year and Mercury until 28th April, the month begins with Venus already here. This is giving you a jump on your birthday month at the same time that Venus’ departure on 4th April will create a sizeable firebreak between the two. There are 16 days separating Venus’ focus on giving your heart a voice and the start of your birthday month and new solar year. This gives Venus time to first focus on the ‘what’ before you need to look at the ‘when, where and how’.

Until leaving Venus is taking advantage of a friendly aspect to the planets in an adventurous part of your chart, where things are becoming more confident but also more low key and stable. This is something that the Sun and Mercury will tap into when they return. Yet the month begins with your old solar year still playing out and the Sun in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart until 20th April, until then you may find that the lines between the past, present and future are blurred. This is a time of year for reflection and this is why a Full Moon on 8th April will put a balance between knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off to the test.

This is a Full Moon that will always fall in your work sector at some point during the month long wind down of your old solar year and is always a valuable chance to put this to the test. However, with this Full Moon part of an explosion of potential across the income, work and career fronts, the timing couldn’t be better. It was Saturn and Mars’ return to your career sector in the final 10 days of March that has turned this professional year on its heels, just as Venus’ return to your income sector on 4th April will begin the most potentially lucrative months of 2020.

LoveTaurus April 2020 Love Horoscope

Last year Venus, the planet of love and your ruling planet didn’t return to Taurus until May and didn’t leave until June but as we move into April, she is already in her final days here. Venus was not only early to return this year but instead of spending the 24 days she will normally spend updating your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year, she will have been here for 30 days by the time she leaves. Venus will be gone by 4th April but her influence and the additional six days she spent here will continue to have an impact.

With your birthday month and new solar year still over two weeks away by the time Venus leaves, this gives you time to cement her desires and expectations and that is where the Moon comes in. It was last month, while Venus was in her early weeks in Taurus that the Moon made its monthly visits to your romantic and relationship sectors. A romantically charged Full Moon during Venus’ early days in Taurus helped to bank your romantic expectations early on. The Moon will come full circle from those visits just days after Venus leaves this month and this will bring a valuable chance to revisit and revise those expectations.

The Moon will return to your romantic sector from 5th April to 7th April, coming full circle from last month’s romantically charged Full Moon less than 48 hours after Venus leaves. The Moon will return to your relationship sector from 9th April to 11th April and as the last visit before returning as a Full Moon next month, these will be important days to check in. By the time your birthday month and new solar year begin Venus will have already spent a month updating your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year and the Moon will have had a chance to revisit and revise those expectations. Your relationships will benefit from Mercury, planet of communication’s return to Taurus on 28th April.

MoneyTaurus April 2020 Money Horoscope

Apart from the fact that you begin the month with Mars and Saturn in your career sector and this is the first time those words have been said in the same sentence in three decades, financially it is business as usual. There is no doubt that the whole dynamics of this professional year changed in the final days of March, with what was possible just a few weeks ago now completely different. However, with the Sun not returning to your income sector until later next month, this is more about getting things moving professionally in order to eventually benefit financially.

Or at least that should be the case with Venus, the planet of money literally racing to reach your income sector in order to catch this major new professional wave. Last year Venus didn’t return to your income sector until June and didn’t leave until July and as these are usually the most lucrative weeks of any year, this was a mid year event. It is a very different but also timely story this year, with Venus returning on 4th April for what should be the most potentially lucrative 24 days of 2020. I am using the word ‘should’ a lot, because what is happening with Venus this year is not what we would normally expect but then the professional climate has just completely changed.

Venus returns so early that she will be forced to wait for the Sun and the way she will do that is by turning retrograde next month, a move that will keep her here until August. Instead of returning to begin the most potentially lucrative 24 days of 2020, which would have run its course by the end of the month, Venus is here for the next four months. This in isolation is auspicious, for as the planet of money Venus can not only attract income opportunities and potential but boost your confidence and a belief in what you deserve. However, the game changer is that it happens at a powerful moment professionally.

CareerTaurus April 2020 Career Horoscope

While Saturn and Mars may seem to have the worst possible timing, returning with the most powerful professional influences in decades, in the middle of a time of global uncertainty. Whether you are immediately impacted or not, times are uncertain and this might have an impact on how you experience Saturn and Mars’ return but ultimately this will work to your advantage. In December Saturn and Jupiter will both return to your career sector within days of each other and this will be the official launch of the biggest period of professional expansion in decades, stretching through to 2023.

Saturn’s return now is more a chance to test the waters, get a feel for any barriers, challenges or anything that you might need to work on in the meantime. Mars, who returned in the final hours of March wants to make things happen now and if there is a smooth path to career and professional success and achievement this month, he will find and exploit it. However, if there are barriers Saturn will keep Mars’ impatience in check and use it as valuable information as he prepares for the future. Mars will leave your career sector in mid May, exploiting as much professional potential before then as possible.

Saturn will turn retrograde next month and will begin retracing his steps, leaving in early July where he will pass on everything he has learnt during this time to Jupiter. This is when the two most powerful planets in the solar system can use that information to prepare for their return in December, while you will get to benefit from the structures you are able to create between now and then. If you do have to pull back this month you have Saturn there to help you do it but if you do have a clear path to success, Mars will help you exploit it. Another advantage is Venus’ return to your income sector on 4th April, kicking off four of the most potentially lucrative months of 2020.
