Those born in the month of April can be described as brave, outgoing and firm. Their activeness induces an aura of freshness wherever they go. Friendships mean a lot to them and they are keen to solve other people’s problems. They are attractive and affectionate people and are very encouraging at the same time. However, they can be revengeful when people or circumstances turn against them. They are equally pleasant and vicious and can be generous, as well as aggressive. However, they are some of the best people to be around. They are exactly the ones you can look up to when faced with difficulties.  Individuals born in this month are controlled by the dual forces of the zodiac sign, Aries and the planet of Mars. Known as the ‘The Lord of War’, the planet Mars makes the people under its influence, impatient and destructive. These individuals are born leaders and are usually attracted to sports, engineering and the military services as career choices. They are always active and charged, the quality very few people possess and even if they do, not to such a degree. They must try to control their emotions and need to learn to be patient.

The Aries/Taurus cusp, which happens to be the most powerful cusp, also falls in the month of April. Referred to as the ‘cusp of power’, people born under its influence are not the ones you would like to engage in fight with! Not only are they impulsive, but also tend to fight for themselves with a great deal of aggression. Their spirit and energy cannot be tamed at any cost and they are severely repulsive to authority. Their strength of character does not permit them to bow down and they find it difficult to accept defeat. Such people can be quarrelsome at times and need to be dealt with patience. However, they are dependable and therefore, are natural leaders who are capable of taking responsibilities. Most of them lead a happy and prosperous life, owing to their strong determination, which helps them succeed in whatever they do.
