Capricorn Horoscope: April 2018

Slow but steady

Unlike some of the other signs this month, you have a certain edge. Although the energy will be unstable for the first half of April, you're more likely than most to find a way to navigate it without stumbling too much. Your approach? Slow and steady wins the race.

On April 2, Mars and Saturn will collide in your sign, making for an interesting day. Saturn in Capricorn has you feeling more responsible than ever to live up to your standards around who you know you should be and how you should express that person in the outside world. Mars will come along and encourage you speed up this process -- or at least take some concrete action connected to this personal agenda of yours. As you do this, you're likely to feel fueled on a personal level.

The only trouble that may come your way would be from your domestic world, which might suddenly go haywire around the same time. On April 4, Mercury, currently retrograde, will square off with Mars. Since Mercury is in your 4th House of Home and Family, it's possible that a misunderstanding with a relative will interrupt your personal mountain climbing expedition. This person might even throw a fit about the attention you're paying to your personal growth and ambitions, feeling threatened that by doing so, you'll ignore the happenings on the home front. Unfortunately, you're likely to respond with anger rather than recognition that your relative is simply being selfish and insecure. Don't allow this hiccup to mess up the progress you're making in other areas of your life. Keep your eye on the prize.

After April 15, everything at home might take on a sudden new direction and you'll need to roll with the punches. A New Moon combined with Mercury turning direct promises significant activity. Uranus is involved in the mix, so you can look forward to an unanticipated new beginning or opportunity related to home life. Shocking news from a relative is also possible. 

Your personal growth, however, will not be deterred … not by anything. In fact, from April 24 through the April 26, you'll make significant gains thanks to Mars making gorgeous links to both Jupiter and Pluto. Your dreams are about to come true -- they're just taking their sweet time to simmer. Happily, the Full Moon on April 29 might be when your deepest one is ready to come to fruition. Yes, it will have been worth the wait.
