This can be found out by knowing the time and place of your birth. Sites like Astrodienst and Astrology.com offer free birth charts. Once these are known read the corresponding Astrological sign reading.

Hope everyone has a nice Beltaine, (May 1st) or Samhain for those in the Southern Hemisphere.

There are two planets in Retrograde for the beginning of April (Jupiter and Venus) and then four planets will be in retrograde:  Mercury, Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn.

Jupiter Retrograde – Jupiter stations retrograde 6 February 2017 at 23 degrees 8 minutes Libra.  Jupiter stations direct on the 9 June 2017 at 13 degrees 13 minutes Libra.  http://astrologyking.com/jupiter-retrograde/   During this retrograde there is a chance to turns challenges into opportunities for success.  There is a greater need for personal freedom and a need to have fun.  Enjoyment can be achieved through education, travel and new relationships.  Find creative ways to overcome boredom without being self-destructive.  This is also a time of spiritual growth.  The changes made will be a smooth and lasting transition with careful planning which can include career advancements.

Venus Retrograde – Venus retrograde March 4 at 13° Aries and ends on April 15 at 27° Pisces http://astrologyking.com/venus-retrograde/ A six week period of potential excitement in love with whirl-wind romances and desire for luxury money purchases and fast money making and money lost schemes.  Care needs to be taken in making decisions, especially in love matters where lust over love will be regretted at the end of this time period and old flames may reappear. Relationships started before the March 4th retrograde can be given a boost at this time. Self-love is especially important at this time when self-care can be neglected or over enhanced in looks that aren’t natural. Traditionally this retrograde is not a good time to make large purchases or investments.

Mercury Retrograde – April 9 at 4° Taurus and ends on May 3 at 24° Aries http://astrologyking.com/mercury-retrograde/ During this retrograde time decisions on whether to follow your heart or your mind may involve difficult decisions.  If possible delay decisions till Mercury turns direct when there are more opportunities for action and clearer thinking are more likely.  Special take needs to be taken in love and money issues, signing contracts (unscrupulous situations), electronics (failures) and travel plans (delays) may be experienced at this time.

Pluto RetrogradeApril 20 at 19° Capricorn and ends on September 28 at 16° Capricorn.  http://astrologyking.com/pluto-retrograde/ This is a time to focus on removing barriers to growth.  Combined with the Jupiter Retrograde issues of greed, excess, faith or ideology are most like to be problematic.  A reoccurring set of circumstances may occur with a Pluto retrograde until lessons are learned.  Fear of loss of control or being manipulated or betrayed may lead to increased psychic development when Pluto in retrograde is in the birth chart. During this time power and control are important issues and need to be eliminated.  Overcoming addictions or destructive behavior will help spiritual advancement.

Saturn Retrograde – April 6 at 27° Sagittarius and stations direct on August 25 at 21° Sagittarius.  http://astrologyking.com/saturn-retrograde/ During this retrograde restriction, limitation; anxiety and fear are issues to be dealt with as well as enhancing the capacity for dealing with increased responsibilities.  Depression or isolation may be issues needing solutions and if not dealt with may require drastic actions to be done to begin the process.

Knowing where these planets are in your birth chart can help in anticipating which areas of your life might have difficulties. Mercury retrogrades in the Natal Chart indicate Karma issues and Saturn retrogrades are associated with fated life lessons.
