Ox is surrounded by one intelligent star and many lucky and unlucky stars causing his luck to fluctuate/ And so as not to fall into traps, the Oxen should be very alert when signing documents such as contracts. Another priceless advice to the Oxen – Don’t gamble! But this is a lovely year – LOVE AFFAIRS will bloom even as a third party will come between you and your lover. When travelling, take the necessary road precautions.

It is not a good time to develop or expand business. Open-mindedness and a willingness to accept criticism is necessary for the Oxen to overcome difficulties. Seek consultation and do not engage in illegal activities.

LOVE

Don’t get married this year! This is the rule of love for the female Ox. Getting married this year means encountering five evils. A female Tiger’s marriage this year will collapse due to oppression and infidelity. The male Ox should also watch out for five women who are ready to amass his wealth.

TIGER

A better year coming with prosperous returns. Your efforts and hard works are recognized. Effective goals will come in July. Motivate your friendly approach to people cause you can be easily misunderstood as uppity and standoffish.

The Tiger may lose some of his prize strips as he clashes with the Dogs. However, since the Tiger has three lucky stars and his compatible zodiac signs – Horse and Dog are lucky this year, his misfortune could be diminished. Tigers may bite into a large chunk of income from different sources. But it is wise to avoid gambling or risky investments.

Tigers clash with Dogs. Based on traditional Chinese calculation, Tigers are in bad luck so they should therefore be careful about what they say. Do not leak commercial secrets otherwise the outcome will be disastrous.

LOVE

The female Tiger is fortuitous when it comes to falling in love. Having a lover means being lucky also in business. The male Tiger should also find should also find a lifetime partner to be prosperous. The star of love rules above him. If he does not get married this year, he will not get married until the 12th year starting today. The male Tiger should also avoid extramarital affairs for they will come in dozen. Infidelity is bad for business.

April 2020 monthly horoscope

Aries

You have a strong idealistic streak this month, with your ruler Mars in an independent, airy position. This means that you are taking pride in your intelligence and may be looking around for a good cause to champion.

So instead of standing up for yourself in a narrow, self-centred way, you are more likely to take someone else’s side and do battle on behalf of something you believe in. You may also develop an underlying technical side this month, especially around the 13th perhaps, when computers, mobile phones, cameras and every other type of technology take on a fun, fascinating and almost human side. Keeping in touch this way is fun, so do use text messages, email and phone calls to shorten the distance between yourself and whoever is important to you. Until the middle of the month, you also have Venus going through your sign, bringing an enhanced attractiveness and a sociable side that appeals to others. An excellent way of working with this is either to bring people together, or else to go where you know people congregate. You are likely to be popular at this time, especially until the 16th and if there has been an awkward atmosphere between you and anyone close, you can use your supercharged charm to smooth things over.

Taurus

There is an open door for you this month, not wide open perhaps, but with enough light showing for you to get your foot in. So this means with a little effort, you can not only show yourself in the finest possible perspective, but you can also push your ambitions further forward too. The Full Moon in your opposite sign on the 24th is a passionate moment in the month, though you may also get your wires crossed. So if you have something exciting to do at this time, then fine, but it may be better to take it easy and wait for more desirable days. These could be coming as Venus crosses your Sunsign from the 16th onward, so you can enjoy the company of like-minded people and possibly meet someone who puts a spring into your step. You may not consider that making an image for yourself can be done without spending large amounts of money, but you make the most of your materials this month. So if you have old clothes that you haven’t given an airing for a while, give them a second look and consider whether they could be put to alternative use. Though you are a creature of habit and like your luxuries, you also have a more inventive inspiration and may surprise people with the ideas you put forward.

Gemini

You have a following wind this month and your direction seems assured from the start. While at other times you may stumble and trip over your path, unsure of where to go next, now you feel pulled along as if on auto-pilot, on your way to high achievement. This is also a time when you can combine a careful consideration of other people’s feelings with a full on rush towards your own goals. If you are called upon for a leadership role, you step to the front and take charge as if you have been born to it. You do this with tact and style, inspiring people from the front and without arousing jealousy or resentment. In the first week of the month, your world may be enriched or enlivened by new information coming your way, or perhaps an old offer presenting itself for inspection once again. When Mercury goes direct on the 12th, it is probably safe to commit yourself to a contract, position or relationship without fear that second thoughts will get in the way. However, your instincts are sharp and you know what to do, what to buy and what to watch out for, so if someone makes you an offer, trust your inner voice.

Cancer

You may feel as if you have been asked to sit particularly tough exams in the last few weeks, tested and tried until you are thoroughly tired out. All that has been demanded of you has been work, work and then some more work, leaving no time for you to relax, sit back or spend any time whatever in the comfort zone. However, you should be seeing some results for your efforts, and the changes that you have been through over the last few months may also be evident to others. So if there are authoritative people around, they may be favourably impressed with your application and may decide to reward you with increased influence. While you have worked and sweated hard for what you have got, there are also rewards in terms of freedom on offer, even though they may seem hard won at the time. You are not daunted by the prospect of having to beat your own path, put your own image together or find your own friends. So while you may seem slightly at odds with people around you at first, you may find them looking to you for inspiration eventually. The Full Moon on the 24th may be a good time to have a break, plan a night out and thoroughly forget yourself for a while.

Leo

Mars making a move through your relationship zone this month makes you either particularly passionate or ultra impatient. Possibly you will be both, but one thing for sure is that your interaction with others takes on a more intense aspect, and perhaps a competitive edge. Carrying out a plan together with other people may suffer slightly from this syndrome, so try and put your own interests on hold and look instead at the overall picture. You may feel pulled in different directions – you so want to join in with a particular group or party, but another element within you longs to forge out on your own. Trying to square this dilemma may take up some of your time, especially around the 14th when you really can’t decide which way to turn, but don’t burn your bridges with important contacts. This impulse to express yourself individually may be a short-lived sensation, and in a while you are once again happy to join in with the general run. Happily, you have a sociable side happening for you this month which smoothes the rough edges between you and others, so you may be welcomed with open arms at the point where you return to the fold.

Virgo

This month starts making sense to you the more it moves on. At the outset, you are in an impatient mood, eager to push on, organise everyone and in the typical Virgo style, create order out of chaos. This may focus on your most intimate relationships, or perhaps personal issues you share most deeply with someone close to you. So if you are in a liaison, you have to mark the boundaries between you both and discover the level at which they dissolve and you meet on a more understanding level. Money-making matters come under this umbrella and though your finances may be in a fairly healthy state, you must decide who owns what and what belongs to who. So if you lend someone a DVD or prized item of clothing, make sure they know to give it back! As the month moves on, however, the tone becomes gradually earthier, suiting your temperament much better, as the focus shifts on to fun and flirtation. Your people skills come into their own after the 16th, so even if you discover that you have to make rapid changes and breaks appears in your path, you can take any event in your stride.

Libra

Make the most of this month, with so much airy energy around, you should feel entirely at home. Between your immense energy, leadership ability and your present positive optimism, people find you and inspiring presence and should be ready for your call. Early in the month especially, you are in outstanding shape, with a creative combination of dynamism and imagination working for you. So whatever the task you have facing you – finding new friends, excelling at work, or securing a date for the weekend, you stand to succeed. Always stylish, your eye for fashion has never been sharper and you present yourself in the most flattering and at the same time innovative light. Creating different combinations of clothes that others may not have the vision to bring together sets you apart, so trust your taste and don’t be dictated to by conventions of the season. While it may be hard for you to forge a path without the approval of others at times, now you are in a position to stand out, without losing support. So although there may be hurdles to overcome in the form of work or your overall direction, people should be so won over by your charm that you can’t help succeed.

Scorpio

The passing currents are washing in your favour this month and there is nothing you can’t try your hand at. While others around you may be making great changes, sudden alterations in their job, love life or personal style, you are taking your time and introducing a quiet revolution that is far more effective in the long run. This is perhaps because change does not intimidate you, but rather seems like a natural and quite exciting process that brings you into contact with new experience. You are not so furiously intense as you can sometimes seem, viewing the world from a detached perspective that takes into account that everyone is different. So you have no need to try and control others and from the 16th especially, you are getting on very well with people around you, effortlessly bringing them along with you. If you have need of friendship therefore, or want someone to be there to listen to your troubles, you shouldn’t find yourself alone – though they may not answer all of your needs. There is something of a love versus friendship situation going on and a guy that comes into your life this month might become more of a brother figure than a romantic proposition. The Full Moon on the 24th however, may be a time to challenge that assumption and should be a day enjoyed to the max.

Sagittarius

If you are taking a dip into the style pool and fancy a change of look, then this month has plenty of opportunities available. You usually have your finger on the pulse of the moment, and more than this, may be found living in the future, ahead of the current fashionable high street images. So despite what the magazines may claim, the most up to date look available are often those shown by Sagittarians before other people have caught up. What is more, you are at your most resourceful this month so you don’t have to spend vast fortunes on the prestige labels, but a little creativity with your old wardrobe can produce something equally striking. A complete transformation of your personal appearance starts with an innocent intention to overhaul what may be tired or worn out in your world. Certainly, others will be surprised at your latest haircut or clothing creation, but if they think this is a passing fad or phase, then they have yet more surprises in store. The New Moon on the 8th is an excellent time to start your fresh fashion statement, with a favourable alignment of all things that fill your world with fascination.

Capricorn

Though you may be toiling at the moment, with some apparent setbacks to sift through, this month has much to offer in the way of consolation. Venus making a friendly angle to you from the 16th onward is a perfect example, giving you a pleasant outlook and a pleasing manner that woos people you wish to draw into your confidence. At other times, your relationships seem to rub up against the different corners of your life – your home, your work, the approval of others, but at this time the balance is just right. At a difficult time, when plans you may have worked hard at come up against steep slopes that seem certain to stand in your way, it is important not to get too wrapped up in what might have been. In fact, anything, in either love or work, that doesn’t give the desired outcome should be written off and put down to rich experience. One of your great gifts as a Capricorn is your patience and power of endurance, so just a little longer to wait finally sees the pressure pass away as the Sun comes up again. New projects that promise greater personal satisfaction take the place of worn out plans that only lead to heartache. The 29th is a date to set your sights on, a time to take yourself away and forget about the wider picture for a while.

Aquarius

This is a month to breeze through your work and push yourself that little bit further. If there are a million things staring at you, waiting to be done, then you might amaze even yourself at the rate you rip through them. Do your home decorating, sort out your paperwork, mend your shoes and still have time left over for an exhausting social whirl. This is exactly the course you ought to take right now – fill your routine with tiring, but rewarding tasks and chalk each one completed up as a triumph. The only let up in your otherwise unstoppable energy comes around the 17th when you might allow yourself a little respite, or pause to decide on the next step. You feel confident in yourself, especially if your self-image has taken a knock recently and you put yourself across persuasively. Just be careful that you don’t try and take on too much, or that your boldness doesn’t turn into a brash display of bravado. Try also to keep your competitive instinct within boundaries and instead of making hollow noises about your grand intentions, let your actions do the talking. Indeed, though you may be in a strong and assertive phase, this may also be a good time to resolve difficulties with people whose friendship has fallen out of favour. Putting your energies into making peace would be a priceless use of your time.

Pisces

You may be mulling over an offer that you have received recently, either at work or in a personal affair. While you feel more settled in terms of your career direction, where you are heading and what you want, you are still waiting for the profit part to put itself forward. It is only a matter of time, however, so if you instinctively feel that you are on the royal road toward success, then don’t deviate simply because the money hasn’t shown itself yet. It is very likely that you will have to make major adjustments to things in your world which you have relied on up to now, especially those that have become too tired. This may involve a gamble, where you have to stick your neck out against advice others are giving you, especially those who think they know better – but you do have to trust yourself. This is not an excuse to go against authority simply for the sake of it, but ultimately no-one else can make your decisions and you will have to commit yourself to a position. So while your road may seem rather rocky until you get a new route sorted out, the overall outlook is for a brighter, fuller and more varied future. The Moon going through your sign on the 6th is an excellent time for a little reflection, to plan where you are going and to plot your future successes.

March 2020 monthly horoscope

Aries

Mercury moving through your sign this month puts the emphasis on communication, in the authentic Aries motor-mouth manner! No problem at-all with this until the 20th, however when Mercury makes an about-turn, returning you to conditions in the recent past.

You may find yourself going back over old ground, as if someone is saying to you: ‘sorry, try again’. So if there are projects or relationships with people that haven’t paid off in quite the way you had planned, then you have a second chance pull it all together. If possible, avoid making big decisions during this time window and instead, gather as much information as possible, so you can make intelligent choices in the following month. You may look back on work, a social occasion, or a chance for a relationship you may have had, that only now starts to make sense. With your ruling planet Mars also changing sign on the 21st, look to the final week in the month to overcome technical problems that may have beset you. So if you have car trouble or a dodgy DVD machine, for instance, then this could be just the opening to show you can put things right on your own.

Taurus

Aim to use the time between the start of the month and the 21st to complete important tasks standing over you. If you have felt tired or just not really like getting anything done, then you may find your enthusiasm returning, as you look forward more to getting up in the morning. If you are a typical Taurean, then you also look forward to having some luxuries in life and with the expansive planet Jupiter currently going back on his tracks, there could be new opportunities coming your way. This could be something, perhaps a job offer, that you either rejected or perhaps didn’t work out before, but now comes around again and this time you are readier to make a proper go of it. Plus, if your love life has become rather samey and you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary, then don’t be afraid to look in other areas. The signals at present suggest you need a more sensitive guy who isn’t just content to take you to the ‘right’ places, but wants to know a bit more about you as well. The strong waxing Moon in your sign on the 13th is an excellent time for adventure, when you can find someone to share a special moment.

Gemini

There are several way that you can use the present time, either in terms of one to one relationships, or to further your creative causes. The intensity of your love life is in a fairly sharp contrast to your usual light, bubbly manner, but there seems to be no other way. Your vital forces are up and you have a focused, passionate manner about you that signals to everyone that you are serious. You may find it hard to come to an understanding with someone that you are with, and may be going through one of those phases where everything you say is misunderstood. So, while it may be easy to back yourself into an entrenched position and stubbornly refuse to compromise, giving in order to receive may be something to keep in mind. Remember also that though it may be slightly overshadowed at the moment, you have a diplomatic streak which you may put to good use. Plus, if you have a desire to make some more money, be on the lookout for plans and schemes that could transport you into a different financial sphere altogether. The Full Moon the 25th is the time when you reach a breakthrough in your personal affairs, finally seeing eye to eye with someone who has been out of contact for quite a while.

Cancer

Though the last few weeks and months may have been a trial, admit to yourself that at least some of the things you have done have been worthwhile. Sometimes there is no choice but to keep on the path you are following, even if nothing seems to be going right, and simply wait for the tide to turn. Times change, however, and you don’t have much longer to wait before the sun comes out again and your load lightens. In the meantime, you have several tempting opportunities to distract you this month and if you are trying to make a good impression on someone, success should be coming your way. With Venus at a very useful angle towards you, use your winning manner to delight everyone, especially if there is someone who is looking for sympathy. This is something you may take for granted, but not everyone is able to listen to people’s troubles the way you can, and make them feel you understand. Someone opening up to you is of course a wonderful way to break the ice, and if romance develops out of if, then it could be a solid, long lasting affair. The New Moon on the 10th is the perfect chance to set this in motion and to embark on a new direction in your relationships.

Leo

The 21st sees a swing in your relationships, when you start to take a more assertive approach. Up to now you have been rather undecided about what you want and have allowed people to impose themselves upon you, or else have drifted into affairs without any real clear purpose. Now, however, you are more clear eyed about your intentions and other people had better come up to your expectations. So while you may run the risk of upsetting some people once you get to grips with where your love life is going, in this case, it could be overdue. Watch out for other people competing with you at this point also, for when you send the signal out that you are no longer a soft touch, the whole complexion of the game changes. However, along with a more headstrong manner, you also combine a flirtatious ‘come and get me attitude’, quite open and up for a conquest. This comes into effect especially around the 23rd, when you may notice old opportunities for love and profit coming your way once more. Hold back before committing yourself to a course too fully, but use the time up to the end of the month to gather information for future triumphs.

Virgo

This month sees a chance to you to ground some of the changes you have been through recently. Perhaps you have been hanging around with a different crowd or have felt a desire to throw over all the safe, predictable patterns that have built up over time. Be careful, however, for regardless of the state of your love life, your friendships are at least as important and you have to keep them updated and in good repair. You can always make new friends, but it’s not so easy to find old friends. So if there is someone you know who has been having troubles, keep patience with them, for you may not realise what a strong bond you have until it is no longer there. You can also get into yourself more this month, with creative plans that put a spring into your step. Checking out movies, gigs and galleries is a great way to remind yourself you are alive, and unlike some other times, you can get into this cultural stuff without sacrificing your usual setup. Once you get past the New Moon on the 10th – which may be a down time in the month for you – a wide window of opportunity opens where you can enjoy yourself on several fronts at once.

Libra

Jupiter going through your sign at the moment is a cause for general rejoicing. Positive enthusiasm should be flowing in your veins, with a reassuring sense that everything is entirely possible and within your grasp. While this is not an excuse to become bombastic or overbearing, at the same time you can get away with being highly confident and self-assured. In fact, the best way to get the most from the present time is to think massively big and go for the very highest ambition you can. Truly, if it doesn’t entirely pay off, then you will still be propelled a long way toward your overall goal and no effort will have been wasted. Restrict yourself perhaps to one avenue of attack, rather than spread your energies over too many different projects. So if there is something to do with your work, then concentrate on that, or if your heart’s desire is to improve your home, then make this the focus of your intention. The only drawback of the present time is a desire to enjoy and expand everything slightly too much, with the result that you become physically heavier. While this comes from fun times and good living, you probably don’t want to be several sizes larger afterwards as a souvenir of this wonderful time in your life.

Scorpio

Several opportunities present themselves this month, and no matter which path you follow, a good result may be expected. How often can you say that? If you want to work hard and concentrate on the conventional route, then you have an excellent working ethic and a sensible knowledge of your own limitations. When work is going well, no extra effort is involved – you are efficient and economical and every ounce of energy expended is entirely effective. You know both what you want and how to get it, which is all to the good. However, you can also step out this month and experiment with career choices and different company that deviate entertainingly from the norm. So while you forge ahead with the conventional currency of your career, look around for some extra curricular activity – a new subject to study, some travel, a new and exotic liaison perhaps, and reflect on what you may learn from it. Venus is doing good things for you until the 21st, so you are both passionate and committed, while keeping a sense of perspective on what you are doing. For a wild and intense sort such as yourself, this may be a welcome change, where you can explore new experience to the fullest, without losing either your head or your heart.

Sagittarius

Your latent diplomatic skills may come into the foreground this month, when you are called upon to mediate in a dispute between warring factions. Though you may possess something of a reputation for blunt speech, the fact is that you are equally very fair-minded, and simply call things the way that you see them. So you can be counted upon for an impartial judgement – if the parties involved don’t mind your unvarnished version of events. Aside from being a United Nations Peacekeeper for other people, you also have options of your own opening up, especially with Venus making a marvellous move at the end of the month. From the 23rd onwards, you can once again be surprisingly tactful, but this time use your negotiating skills to get ahead. Coming to a compromise over work conditions, or a money deal is something you show promise at, though be careful of committing yourself to a decision that cannot be undone. Keep your casual, cool headed approach and don’t let anything, either business-wise or personal, interfere with your own assessment of events. So if someone is coming on strong, or you receive an offer that appears too good to be true, check it out thoroughly against your own standards and if it doesn’t measure up, don’t be afraid to turn it down.

Capricorn

You have a very excitable energy about you this month, with a desire to dash off in all different directions. Perhaps you have an ultra competitive urge to show others what you can do, and if this lights a necessary fire underneath you, then cash in for all it is worth. However, you also excel at forward planning and a little of this will save both your energy and your blushes, if you should otherwise be tempted to head into something half-ready. Leaping into a love affair for instance may seem like the thing to do, as it seems there is not a moment to waste. Strike now, you say to yourself, or a wonderful person will pass you by, but in fact there is no reason to rush. Take a more detached view and reflect that if something is truly intended for you, then it won’t pass by and by making your every effort count, that you will make a much better impression when it really matters. Easy to say, perhaps, but the moral of the story is to take your time. Equally, this is not a period to try and salvage a work plan that hasn’t brought the success you had hoped for. Anything that is going away from you and always seems to remain out of reach is probably meant to be that way, even though you don’t realise it yet. Give yourself some credit and consider that something better and more worthy of you is just around the corner.

Aquarius

It has been hard for you to hit on a target that seems within your reach lately. You may have worked hard at your career or image, without really believing you have what it takes to succeed. Or else you have simply hoped for victory without putting in necessary effort and willpower. While it is true that anything really intended for you should be easier than a more unsuitable path, this does not let you off the hook of having to put the hours in. Neptune in the middle of your sign enlivens your empathy and idealism, and gives you a starry eyed impression of where you want to be. While this is a wonderful fantasy, the danger is that nothing in your everyday world seems good enough, and you simply resign yourself. Others may also find you slightly enigmatic at the moment, either detached and unworldly, or strangely sympathetic, as if you can tune in to their every intention. This, of course may be something they are beaming on to you, but don’t be surprised if strangers come up to you and start relating their life story. The Full Moon on the 25th is an up time in your month, and if there are opportunities to socialise and forget your cares for an evening, seize them and don’t let go.

Pisces

The first three weeks of this month offer you an opportunity to get ahead in your relationships. Until the 23rd, Venus is happily in your sign, bringing you a sociable disposition and a certain cool chemistry that draws other people into your circle. At other times you may search for the right crowd to mix with, or a romantic opening that lifts you out of the ordinary, but now the cards are stacked in your favour and you don’t have to try so hard. Even if you are happily set with someone you see the sense of, you can still put a sparkle into the scene and remind yourself of why you liked each other in the first place. Plus, if you want to make a big impression on someone at the workplace, then your present potent powers are sure to be persuasive. The charming manner that marks your behaviour however, may also mask a more rebellious mood that lies under the surface. With an overwhelming urge to overturn the existing order, you may not know where you are heading, but you definitely know where you have been – and you have had enough of it. So, while a handy pay-the-rent position may have kept you comfortable up to now, you are more than ready for a brand new challenge.
