Personal Evolution Astrology – Your Horoscope for the Week of April 11, 2011
We continue our extraordinary run of revolutionary, onward-and-upward Aries energy mixed with the backward-looking energy of Mercury Retrograde this week. To complicate matters further, Mercury (thought and communication) and Mars (anger and assertion) team up to oppose Saturn in Libra as we head towards next Sunday’s Libra Full Moon. Perhaps the simplest way to describe this energy would be: we need to get as clear as possible on what we’re angry about. Saturn in Libra is trying to teach us how to create win-win relationships, but we can only truly thrive in relationship when we are conscious of what’s happening inside the self.
Most of us are not – in fact we do everything we can to either pretend we’re not really angry or to push our anger off on the other person (as blame, resentment, scapegoating, etc.). This is the way we are trained, but as a quick glance at all the indiscriminate killing going on around the globe will show you, it’s not the best way to be happy and healthy.
All that said, this month brings us truly extraordinary opportunities for self-realization, growth and personal evolution. I want to invite you to try my Expanded Audio Horoscope for your sign and get a feel for how your life can flourish when you go in knowing what to expect. Each horoscope is ten to twelve minutes long and they’re easy and quick to download, so you can listen as often as you like throughout the month. Here are a couple more testimonials:
“DK’s detailed, monthly horoscopes are so incredibly on point and accurate! I’ve followed lots of astrologers over the years, but no other horoscopes I’ve seen are as specific and deeply intuitive, while at the same time fully contextualized against the meaningful global events and energy shifts that we are experiencing in this unprecedented time of accelerated healing. I run a Reiki, BodyTalk, and life mentoring practice of my own, and recommend DK’s deeply insightful commentaries to one and all. They have helped me understand my own healing as I shift and clear old patterns and archetypes because DK offers such beautifully poignant examples to illustrate his thoughts about the monthly forecast. Thank you, DK, for offering your service to the world – your gifts and abilities are so very needed, especially now!” – Erin Bentley, Healer and Life Coach
“D.K. always signs off his monthly expanded horoscopes with ‘I hope you found this interesting and inspiring.’ And I always think to myself, yes! His insights are always spot on for me and it’s validating to have someone articulate so well what I’m feeling, especially in the current energetic environment. It’s also very reassuring to have the support of such a knowledgeable and caring healer. There isn’t anywhere else you can get such a high-quality service for such a low price – I highly recommend expanded horoscopes to everyone!” – Tanja Dill, Portland, Oregon
Aries – You may feel as though you have to do something this week. You are being inhabited by an almost overpowering urge to break free, break through, move into something new. Even though you’re still dealing with the Mercury Rx in your sign, movement now is preferable to holding yourself back. You’ve got too much energy trying to flow and bottling it up in order to wait for precisely the right moment could cause an explosion. So go ahead and act but do so knowing you may have to rethink, reframe, renegotiate or take a different tack once the Mercury Rx dies down in a couple weeks. As long as you stay flexible and aware, you’re in win-win territory.

Taurus – Please try not to push the river this week. I mean, bending the world out of shape to try to make something happen that just isn’t there is one way to learn about the limitations of ego and self-will. But you could just as easily make the choice to work with this massive wave of 12th House energy and make contact with your intuition and the deeper levels of your mind, which will serve you much better in the long run. One way you can test this out is by paying attention to your relationships. Whenever you feel compelled to blame someone else, look for the inner part of you that needs attention so badly it has to project onto the other person in order to get some face time with you. Try having a dialog with this inner part rather than wasting your energy attacking or trying to change the other person. You could learn something immensely powerful about yourself in the next few days.
This could be a really difficult month if you’re not aware of the energy patterns you’re dealing with. Don’t play the victim of your own life – get started mining the rich depths of your subconscious mind. Find out more with your Expanded Audio Horoscope for the month of April.
Gemini – Keep an eye on the bigger picture this week. With so much energy going on in your 11th House of friends, community and dreams for the future, I would hope to see you excitedly looking down the road and eagerly discussing your big plans. If this isn’t the case, you might ask yourself if your goals are big enough and bright enough to motivate you. If they aren’t, then you’re probably going to have a really hard time even completing your “small goals”. Your inner child, who is the key to manifesting your dreams, just doesn’t give a flip about the dutiful obligations and painstaking steps the ego so often focuses on. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to turbo-charge your intentions and dare to identify what you would most like to be living ten years from now. Then get busy dreaming that into reality.
It’s time to put your world domination strategy into place. But first, there are one or two things you need to consider. Find out more with your Expanded Audio Horoscope for the month of April.
Cancer – This is not a time for playing it safe. Do you get that? No matter how much you want to cover all your bases, do your research and compute the most conservative and logical course of action, no option is inherently safe right now. The forces of chaos are loose in the world and this is precisely what the world needs to wake up. Trying to carefully construct your plan based on frameworks that promised security in the past is a recipe for failure in the future. What you need to do is trust your impulses and be willing to take on anyone who tries to sucker you back into a losing game of status quo.
You’ve been living underground, eating from a can…but Fortuna moves in mysterious ways. Find out why April can be the turning point in your life’s work, with your Expanded Audio Horoscope.
Leo – I know you’ve got things to do this week, but do try to buy yourself some alone time because the channel to your higher self has rarely been as wide open as it is right now. What is available to you this week is the recognition that a part of yourself that is much greater than your personality or your body is constantly watching over you and alertly preparing the path ahead of you. When you see this process so clearly, you can really allow yourself to relax and flow with the rhythms of your life. The more you relax and trust your Big Self, the more you allow into your life the experience of what you want and the less energy you spend feeling stuck in your resistance.
The doors of perception are swinging on their hinges in April. Discover how you can blow your own mind and why you should do everything in your power to do just that, with your Expanded Audio Horoscope for the month of April.
Virgo – What’s that great Neale Donald Walsch quote? “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” This week the other people in your life seem even more random and unpredictable than usual and it’s shaking your sense of security. Which is wonderful news, because life is trying mightily to push you out of your comfort zone and into a place of passion, abundance and self-sufficiency. The interesting thing about this self-sufficiency, though, is that it is predicated on your being willing to engage fully in each relationship. Rather than just retreating into a stock stance and defensive or defensive attitude when your sense of propriety is challenged, you’re learning how to speak your truth and at the same time accept the other person’s truth.
If you aren’t willing to say what it is you really want, you’re likely to be disappointed by what you get. If, on the other hand, you’re willing to take a leap of faith and get right with your soul, April brings astounding opportunities for change. Find out more with your Expanded Audio Horoscope today!
Libra – So much can change so fast right now, especially where a key relationship is concerned. This week’s energy is also trying to show you that your tendency to act out the very behavior patterns you hated most in your mother or father is directly affecting your ability to find satisfaction and success in your partnerships. Rather than telling yourself this isn’t happening, why not take a good long look at the people and situations who trigger this unconscious response pattern in you. Once you really see what’s happening, you’ve got a much better chance of transcending this old family pattern and moving into freedom. And since your relationship house and your money house are so connected right now, this freedom brings not only more love and cooperation but also more financial abundance.
What’s love got to do with it, indeed? April brings amazing relationship energy into your life, but it doesn’t come without a price tag. Find out more with your April Expanded Audio Horoscope today!
Scorpio – Looks like another week of hard work and self-exploration, particularly where addictions and self-sabotaging behaviors are concerned. Rather than bemoaning your fate and wishing life would give you a day by the lake rather than a long row to hoe in your garden, why not embrace this? You love a good challenge and the payoff for mastering this one is so great. Some truly amazing relationship energy is poised to come into your life in the next few months, so make the best of this opportunity to get yourself into fighting shape.

Sagittarius –You can create just about anything you put your mind to these days. You’ve got some interesting relationship energy developing this week, and the challenge is to learn from what comes up without getting pulled back into old patterns of behavior. This could be an old flame reentering your life or it could come in the form of a situation with a new person that clearly repeats something that happened in the past with someone else. Look for the choice that represents a new direction for you while helping you stay in a creative, upbeat, adventurous, can-do mindset.
Do you really need anyone else to help you get what you want? The answer might surprise you. Find out more with your Expanded Audio Horoscope for the month of April today!
Capricorn – The line that runs between your most private experiences of life and the way you present yourself in your career or as a public person becomes glaringly obvious this week. Don’t worry – most of the people around you can’t see this the way you are seeing it. (Although, in reality, we all know what each other is truly feeling – we’ve just made a powerful soul contract to pretend ignorance in order to protect our own shamed parts.) But you do see it, and as much as you might like to remain blissfully ignorant, this is a very good thing. Because you now know that when you get motivated enough to make fundamental changes in how you’re dealing with your feelings and your family patterns, the inevitable result will be more of what you want in your public life.
You’ve got to have a firm foundation if you’re going to thrive in the days ahead. But that might not mean what you think it does. Find out how to avoid strife and trouble at home while growing into your place on the planet. Download your Expanded Audio Horoscope for the month of April today!
Aquarius – You’re a veritable idea factory this week. You should be an iPhone app: feed in a problem and out pops a list of several workable solutions. Although you do have Uranus in your 3rd House of thoughts and communication for seven more years, this wave of “thought magic” won’t always be as strong and unwavering as it is now. So make a list of your problems and dial in the solutions. Even if you can’t implement all the fixes immediately, isn’t it nice to know that they are available when the time is right? Plus, the more you engage with your thoughts in this way, the more you understand at a very deep level that this is how your life is created. When you really grasp the power of your thoughts, your life is going to change pretty quickly.
You can heal your mind and reclaim your birth right as the bringer of innovation. Found out how the astrology of April supports your mission as the divine Water-Bearer pictured in the Tarot trump The Star, with your Expanded Audio Horoscope for the month of April.
Pisces – If it were any other sign than yours dealing with all of the chaos, uncertainty and cosmic pranksterism happening in your money house, I would feel much more trepidation than I do. The fact is, you are the most flowing of all the signs and if anyone is capable of maintaining their equilibrium while losing a million dollars one day and making two million back the next, it’s you. While you might not be operating on quite such a grand scale, you probably are seeing money enter and leave your life at unprecedented rates. Be extra conscious in blessing all of your expenses (especially the big ones!) because to whom much is given much is required and the Universe is trying to give you a lot more than you’ve gotten used to.
How would your life change if April brought you a very healthy dose of self-esteem? Find out with your Expanded Audio Horoscope.
