The L.A. Taco Horoscope for April 2019

[dropcap size=big]A[/dropcap]pril is about keeping an open mind, Angels. Mercury, the planet of big ideas, takes up residency in Aquarius where it is exalted - that means fired up - and when it aligns with both Neptune and the Moon on the 2nd, you are primed for cosmic insight. Want to make those dreams come true? The Sun enters Taurus on 4-20, bringing a mellow mood with zero couch-lock to the Zodiac. Benefit from the Bull’s steady determination. Own a pair of binoculars? Lucky Jupiter’s largest moon, Ganymede makes an appearance on the 12th, giving a celestial blessing to our fair city.  And if that isn’t pretty enough for you, three meteor showers brighten L.A. skies this month: the Virginids, the Lyrids, and the Alpha-Scorpiids. Respectively, these light shows support beauty, art and libido – so basically it is just another month in Los Angeles.

Don’t worry, you are very capable of untying that knot. On the same day, Jupiter’s largest moon, Ganymede, appears in your Joint Income House, representing a change in fortune for the better.
