Monthly Astrology Travel Reports
April 2018 Astrology Travel Report
Travel Report Disclaimer:
When I give dates that have sweet or challenging aspects, those dates or aspects can manifest on days before or after those days so keep the potentials in your awareness beyond the exact date mentioned.
I talk about how the general astrological energies could lend themselves well to certain types of trips but that doesn’t mean others wouldn’t be just as good. Trust your flow 🙂
Just because there’s a challenging aspect during a planned or proposed trip doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take it, and just because there are sweet aspects doesn’t mean challenges or problems won’t come up.
These reports can’t and don’t to take into consideration an individuals personal chart which could go against or support the general transits listed.
If you see difficult aspects in the report expected during a time you are stuck in a trip and can’t get out of it, or it doesn’t seem into the flow to shift it, try to not worry and instead trust the circumstances that you are being placed in and just use extra awareness, discernment, presence, and intuition.
Above all your intuition has to reign supreme and is prudent to use over anything that anyone or anything else says 🙂
General April Astrology Travel Overview:
Mood for the whole month: Practical, Ambitious, Sensual, with dashes of Impulsiveness, Inspiration, and Zest
The Sun is still in Aries through April 20th, and Mercury will be in Aries all month, bringing the familiar zest of the Astrological New Year. The desire to DO something will be strong and travel can be a great way to use the energy. Short and/or last minute trips will be supported with the Aries energies. At the same time, with both Venus and Mars in practical earth signs, practicality, necessity, and planning for the future will be woven into the astrological scene.
Adventure trips are great to use the Aries energy. The earth (Taurus and Capricorn) energies support more grounded trips like for business, for future planning, or trips with sensual focus (like for rest or focus on culinary delights).
Dates to Note:
Days around April 1 ~ An argument or a crazy idea could instigate a trip ~ Remember the Mercury retro guidelines (which you can see a link to a video to better understand below) as you navigate.
Days around April 4-5 ~ Frustrations or delays more likely now
Days around April 7 ~ A financial and romantic sweet spot ~ This could provoke or support a wonderful romantic or lucrative business trip.
Days around April 12 ~ Sweet, dreamy yet practical energy available now.
Days around April 15 ~ Much more chance for confusion, delays, changes, miscommunications, items getting lost, etc. now ~ be extra careful.
At the same time, it is a beautiful New Moon, the first of the Astrological New Year, that is amazing for setting intentions home or away, and making vision boards for future trips and anything else you want to manifest.
Uranus is involved in the transits today bringing more of a chance for surprises.
Days around April 17 ~ Venus and Jupiter opposition now make the likelihood greater for burning the candle or your resources at both ends
Days around April 23-24 ~ Great boost of luck and positive action now
Personal Planet Retrograde Status:
Mercury retrograde through April 15th with the post-shadow retrograde period running through May 4. This means the likelihood for plan changes, cancellations, last-minute trips or other things that effect plans are more likely. This doesn’t mean travel can’t be amazing during this time because it can! Flexibility, going with the flow, and extra attention to travel paperwork, agreements, modes of travel, etc. are the ways to ensure a more smooth month and trip.
If you have to make plans this month for a future trip, lean towards the end of the month if that feels in your flow so that the confusion of the Mercury retrograde transit will be softer giving more clarity. If you have to take a trip in April and there isn’t much room for flexibility on the trip, the days April 19 and after will be more clear (but not completely clear) from the retrograde energies.
