The monthly horoscope for April 2018 is presented for you based on the moon sign, i.e. janma rashi in your horoscope, based on the Vedic niryana system. Please do not substitute your Sun sign or a western astrology moon sign here. If you do not know your janma rashi, please refer to the kundali application on this page. 8th house presence for Chandra is called Chandrashtama and is a period of grave caution. These dates are indicated. The dates for caution on financial matters are also indicated. People with a particular janma rashi should avoid dealing in financial matters on these dates, e.g. investment of property, the stock market, giving and taking loans should be avoided.
The planetary positions for the month of April 2018 are as follows:
Sun transits through inauspicious 12th and the 1st house during the month. Saturn is going through inauspicious 9th house transit. Mars is going through inauspicious 9th house transit as well. Jupiter’s transit through the 7th house is favourable. Rahu is going through a 4th house transit. Ketu is going through an unfavourable 10th house transit. Venus will go through favourable 1st and then favourable 2nd house transit, but with Vedha of Jupiter in the 2nd half. Mercury is transiting through an adverse 12th house. Overall, April will be an average month for Aries borns.
Home, Family and Domestic Environment: You are being headstrong and unwilling to work with anyone but your family. This kind of attitude will get you forward, but the selfishness should be reduced a notch. There will be disagreements with father, father-figures and mentors. Hence you will lose out on some good advice on their side. Do not keep secrets from your spouse and ensure that communication is going on well, even when you keep matters private from others. If this is done, the family life will be good.
Travel: Long distance travel is indicated, but it will be tiring and may not provide all the results.
Health: Stomach problems, headaches, eye infections are indicated. Blood pressure can be high due to stress. Be careful with muscular injuries.
Finance, Business & Job: New projects will not work out. Concentrate on doing the older tasks well. Disagreement and misalignment with authorities and superiors is indicated. Do not bend/break rules if you are not sure of the ethical aspect. Others around you can also engage in unethical acts. This can lead to loss of honour. In the 2nd part of the month, be careful with paternal property disputes and legal problems, and again understand you are being targeted. Expenditure will be high. Do not fund your expenses with borrowed money – this means that do not make big purchases using your credit card if you are planning to clear the dues in the immediate cycle.
Chandrashtama days: 4-Apr, 5-Apr
Days of caution on financial matters: 14-Apr, 15-Apr, 18-Apr, 19-Apr
This will be an average month for Taurus rashi borns because some transits are good and others aren’t, while 1st half is better than 2nd. Sun goes through auspicious 11th and then an inauspicious 12th house. Jupiter moves through inauspicious 6th house transit. Saturn is going through inauspicious 8th house transit. Mars will be going through adverse 8th house manglik transit. Mercury moves through favourable 11th houses in transit, but is debilitated and is being obstructed due to vedha from Venus in 1st half and Sun in the 2nd half. Rahu and Ketu are moving through the 3rd auspicious (but has vedha of Venus in the 1st half and Sun in the 2nd half) and 9th inauspicious houses respectively in the janma rashi chart. Lagna lord Venus is going through auspicious 12th and then an adverse 1st house.
Home, Family and Domestic Environment: The social network will be helpful in the 1st half, but the situation will change in the 2nd half of the month, when suddenly you will not want to work with others and will want to be lonely. This can cause disagreement and conflict with others. Be careful as others have been good with you for past two months and it is time for you to pay it forward. Do not get into conflict with in-laws otherwise it has potential of you getting sucked into conflict with spouse as well. Transits ideally indicate good time at home, but there will be obstacles because of vedhas. As Mercury becomes retrograde and gets Neechabhanga, situation will come to normal.
Travel: Foreign travel is indicated in 2nd part of the month.
Health: Be careful with health in 2nd half of the month more than the first half. Fever, heartburn and other symptoms like headaches should not be neglected. Visit a doctor.
Finance, Business & Job: If you need to finalize a loan or start on a project, 1st half of the month is a better time when transits are more favourable. 2nd half of the month indicates disagreement with government and superiors at the place of work. As much as possible, keep you head down and work. Do not attract undue attention at work as being in spotlight is not the right thing to do in 2nd half of the month. If you try to dominate a situation, competitors will come after you and there is not much support this month. This is a good time to assess your finances and make investments.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: The 1st half is difficult for relations with father. The 2nd half is good for connection with others and comfort at home, but some problems with over optimism and a pedantic attitude will be there. The month is average as far as relationship with spouse is concerned. There will be an unnecessary sense of competition, which is not good for a relationship where give-and-take is involved.
Travel: This is a good month for travel. Make use of the opportunities that it presents.
Health: Fever and accidents are indicated. Skin diseases can also occur.
Finance, Business & Job: There is confusion at the place of work, as well as in your own business. There are problems with competition, while you are raring to go forward.

False accusations and dealings with unethical persons can create problems. You yourself can be over-optimistic and see good in everyone. This can be an adverse combination overall. If you navigate obstacles well, court cases and other arbitration cases can be solved in your favour. Be careful with loans and debt. You can make bad decisions if you are over-optimistic about your repayment abilities.
