ARIES April 2019 Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)
This month things shift quite a bit. First off it is your birthday! Celebrate by phoning your mother and thanking her for the rebirth. Even if you don’t get along with your mother, she still gave you the opportunity to meet the Dharma and work on your issues. The month starts with only the Sun in your sign. Things will be quiet although you have lots of personal focus. Watch how you express it. Midmonth things change a little as Mercury enters your sign. You will find an increase of mental activity.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. This month motivate yourself with compassion and Bodhicitta and all will be fine. Motivate with expectations and you might be disappointed. Samsara is like that, unpredictable.
TAURUS April Horoscope 2019 (April 20 May 20)
This month you are free of direct impact from planets. Come the 20th and that may change with the Sun entering your sign. Again there is no direct influence after the 20th except that Venus, Uranus and Mars all help you along. That means being fun loving and engaging.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. This month be. You are a doer, just be sensitive that others take time to act as decisively as you do.
GEMINI April 2019 Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)
This month you have energetic and loving feelings with Uranus, Pluto and Venus well aspected. Come midmonth you will feel more intellectual agitation as Mercury runs square Mars. Your mind may overreact or you might think about something a little too much. Slow down then and exercise a sense of peacefulness. Astrology is only an influence and your moment to moment awareness can protect you.
Gemini Buddhists are quick on their intellectual feet. This month periodically check on your feelings. Intellectual people sometimes ignore feelings. This can be an error. Intellect and feelings work well together if you do it skillfully.
CANCER April Horoscope 2019 (June 21 – July 22)
This month will be interesting for you. It starts slowly with no special astrological influences. By midmonth though Mars enters your sign and this has an opposition to Pluto and a square to Mercury. At that time you may be a little aggressive and pushy, especially with your mind. Slow down and think twice before you act with your mouth.
Cancer Buddhists normally work with feelings. This month work with compassion. You do this by bringing to mind someone who is suffering. If you see the suffering then you will respond with a compassionate feeling. The object stimulates the feeling. Buddhist meditations are so helpful in generating these positive feelings.
LEO April 2019 Horoscope (July 23 – August 22)
This month Saturn is in your sign and it will continue for several months to come. Saturn responds well to meditation, especially contemplative meditations. Reflect on the interdependence of all life. You only exist because of your interactions with others. This meditation is in harmony with the idea of being “other powered,” a Cittamantran philosophy. It means we are interdependent.
Leo Buddhists like to be motivators. This month know where you are coming from. That means know your motivation in the light of interdependence. If there are no Buddhas and sentient beings, you would have no Dharma practice. No source for practice instruction nor any field for practice.
VIRGO April Horoscope 2019 (August 23 – September 22)
This month your are empty of planets but you have Uranus and Mercury running in opposition for 12 days and then Venus and Uranus for the next 12 days. I would focus on your wisdom and awareness. Although astrology may play a role in your daily activities, it only plays a role as an influence. Therefore focus on the center, your center of awareness. If you motivate well then all your life is an expression of your wisdom and compassion. If you are not focused and motivated, then life is chaos, even if you think you have it under control. Control is a big issue for Virgos. The source of control is your own mind.
Virgo Buddhists do things in an orderly manner. This month meditate on your personal clarity and motivation. If you are clear and clean in your mind and actions, then all else is secondary.
LIBRA April 2019 Horoscope (September 23 – October 22)
This month there is lots of energy for you. The Sun runs in opposition. You are basically pulled in opposing directions. There is nothing wrong with that, just know that everything at a distance seems wonderful and attractive. The reason is the Sun pulls at you and makes external things attractive. Be clear about where the real source of happiness lies and all will be fine.
Libra Buddhists keep life in balance. You are slightly prone to get too excited about things. Slow down and although you are full of good energy don’t go too far with your activities. Let things unfold in a natural manner. That is the balance of peace (nirvana) and compassion.
SCORPIO April Horoscope 2019 (October 23 – November 21)
This month Jupiter runs in your sign. I would focus on your wisdom and awareness. Although astrology may play a role in your daily activities, it only plays a role or acts as an influence. Therefore focus on the center, your center of awareness. If you motivate well then all your life is an expression of your wisdom and compassion. If you are not focused and motivated, then life is chaos, even if you think you have it under control. Scorpio likes powerful interactions. Make your interactions arise from awareness and wisdom.
Scorpio Buddhists are passionate. This month Jupiter is in your sign with squares to Neptune. Therefore do more quietude meditation. The reason is you are full of fantasies and imagination, so you have to balance that, thus my reference to clear minded awareness above.
SAGITTARIUS April 2019 Horoscope (November 22 – December 21)
Depth of feeling runs strong as usual with Pluto in your sign for ages to come. This month Mars and Pluto run opposite each other. This can make you powerful but also pushy. Therefore just do your best in each situation. Sometimes feelings are very useful when dealing with harsh situations. In this case we are talking about Faith. Pluto and Faith have a relationship. Faith is a deep feeling and that is where Pluto lies, deep within.
Sagittarius Buddhists are inspired individuals. This month be aware your feelings play a strong role in your inspirations. Use this in a constructive manner. Deep feelings can help you as much as they can confuse you.
CAPRICORN April Horoscope 2019 (December 22 – January 19)
This month you need to be contemplative. The month starts softly but the Sun squares your sign. Therefore some good meditation would be helpful. It helps you be aware and mindful as situations unfold. That awareness protects you from all harms. That positive and constructive awareness is the real meaning of Refuge. Refuge is a reliance on inner qualities.
Capricorn Buddhists reflect and contemplate on decisions. Good month to be reflective. What more need be said? A mindful soul is a wise soul.
AQUARIUS April 2019 Horoscope (January 20 – February 18)
This month Neptune and Jupiter run square. That means intuitive actions with lots of enthusiasm. So as Aquarian individuals are social beings, use your intuition to guide you actions this month. You might want to be slightly careful of being too altruistic though. Remember works in a spiritual manner not a materialistic manner. If you have a materialistic attitude you could fool yourself into some delusion.
Aquarius Buddhists are sociable beings. This month lift your view of life to a spiritual dimension. That means stop focusing on your material goods, relationships and your body. Look at how those objects can be a vehicle for your spiritual inspiration, not the vehicle for material success.
PISCES April Horoscope 2019 (February 19 – March 20)
This month you have Uranus and Mercury running together for 12 days and then Venus and Uranus for the next 12 days. I would focus on your wisdom and awareness. Although astrology may play a role in your daily activities, it only plays a role as an influence. Therefore focus on the center, your center of awareness. If you motivate well then all your life is an expression of your wisdom and compassion. If you are not focused and motivated, then life is chaos. The effects for you can be intellectual stimulation and then emotional stimulation or in contrast, crazy thoughts and then crazy desires. Be aware and all is controlled, be unaware and all is chaos.
Pisces Buddhists are sensitive and introspective. This month your mind is active for 12 days and then your affection is active for the next 12 days. Uranus makes you jumpy though and so slow down. Be mindful in each action.
