April 20th Horoscope
Deep emotional changes are necessary in lives of people born on the 20th of April, for this is one of the biggest challenges for the Moon in a planetary row. There is a lot of repression in deep unconscious processes and the Soul of a person is typically connected to another place and time, left with deep issues and scars to be resolved. In constant touch with the "other side", these individuals understand what different people fear, they love change, and constantly search for something to create, but could have psychological and emotional problems they have a real trouble finding roots to.
Love and Emotions
With love set as their main purpose in life, those born on April 20th have a way of finding it in the strangest of places and the most damaged of people. While someone else might choose to end their inner struggles on their own and find a partner only when they are ready, this isn't the case for individuals born on this date, as they recognize what needs to be healed in their own heart only by interacting with others. Their relationships get better as time goes by and they discover beauty and faith in their inner world through them, even when hardship is involved.
At first, they could choose troubled souls for their partners, people who need help and guidance, with problematic family relationships and habits, conflicts and abuse posing as a natural part of their surroundings. As time goes by and they learn to be more flexible with their own past, the love they build for the Self will lead them towards liberating bonds and partners whose sole purpose is to set a part of them free. Many processes need to be lived through in order for these individuals to find true love for their own heart, mind, and body.
April 20th is a day that ultimately speaks of a constant search for balance and love. For individuals born at this time, main focus in life comes down to close relationships, dance, music, and inspiration they can find in beauties of the world. They are to discover that they have someone incredible living inside their body, and should turn to artistic choices and matters of talent for art and music with any chance they get, so they can build the image of self-worth they deserve to have.
What They Excel In
When a person is born on the 20th of April, they excel in all things that help cleanse one's soul and aura from hurt and pain of any kind. This will make them excel in energetic work with others, psychology, as well as nutrition advice or any form of guidance for those who feel weak or overburdened with circumstance and physical existence. The amount of compassion they build for others will ultimately lead towards their personal freedom and the state in which they finally begin to excel in matters of Venus, such as art, music, togetherness, inspiration, color and beauty in any form.
April 20th Birthday Gift
When you choose a gift for your April 20th born, you need to keep in mind that their inner state can be either really detached or really depressive at times. While this may not be the case on the day of their birthday, it is wise to keep it in mind when considering sarcastic presents and those that might make them anxious about the future. They need something to hold on to that will allow them to change, something to touch, shape and manifest. While Play Doh may be the safest bet, it is even better to get them something that will help them work on their inner issues and shape their heart.
