It’s the calm before the storms of May and June! It’s a good idea to make the most of this semi-peaceful month ahead, and to ground yourself! Once Eclipse Season arrives, there’s no telling which way the wind will blow!
Taurus season also starts on April 21st, a great time for grounding. It’s (mostly) sensual and sweet, both with the Sun and Venus moving into this luxurious sign! It’s a welcome reprieve after the hasty month of March, a time to take stock.
The Lunations for the month – that is, New and Full Moon – are in Mars-ruled Aries and Scorpio. So, this does lend some sharpness to the month ahead, and the planet Pluto is also very active during these lunations!
Pluto is the planet of transformation and trauma, of death and rebirth. These lunations offer us all the chance to urge and press the reset button! Pluto also moves Retrograde, which can mean issues of power and control are a theme this month, and of letting go and surrender. Where do you lose – and gain – your sense of power? That’s a question to ask yourself this month!
Aries April Horoscope (Aries Dates: March 21 – April 19)
Head for new horizons, Aries! Press that reset button and be confident in the fact that your life trajectory is going to be shifting. Sure, there will be a few hairy moments, but sometimes, there has to be destruction before transformation. Besides, you’re always up for a challenge, aren’t you, Aries? You can blame (or thank) the New Moon in your sign for this! Although it’s almost the end of your birthday season, there’s still a spotlight on you. So, where do you want to go? What do you want to do? What do you need to purge to get there? Where do you need to let go? Mars, your ruler, also changes signs from busy Gemini into emotional Cancer. This brings a great deal more focus on your home and living environment, Aries. It’ll be important not to hold onto any resentments, and not to engage in passive aggression.
Taurus April Horoscope (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20)
It’s your time, Taurus! Your birthday season beckons, which wipes the slate clean for you! Maybe you’ll need some time to reflect on the year past – so do just that, Taurus. This New Moon may especially bring up the past and the opportunity to clear some baggage. Make your preparations, because when your birthday season hits, it hits hard! You see, Taurus, the Sun and Venus in your sign brings you a special sort of magnetism. Your powers of attraction will be at an all-time high, especially in love. However, you are also quite unpredictable as the Sun and Venus join with unpredictable Uranus. Are you the rebel without a cause, Taurus – or with one? There’s no saying what you will do all of a sudden! And that’s not like you. But just go with it, because the universe wants you to feel free. This goes for your relationships, too.
Gemini April Horoscope (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20)
Enjoy this calm time, Gemini! Because once May and June come along, the Eclipses in your sign invite a wild ride! Perhaps you’ll start feeling it already, or perhaps not. Rest as much as you can and store your energy, Gemini. In fact, this month, you’re going to find that you want to withdraw a little. Go into your own world, reflect, ponder and take some time out. This also extends to your relationships, where you may feel it’s easier to be alone with your special human. You’re building your foundations in private, and it feels delicious. Your ruler, Mercury, changes signs into Aries, which brings you so much more clarity! This clarity shows itself in your personal goals and when it comes to communication with friends. You’re eager to make some financial decisions, especially when it comes to your earnings. Empower yourself, Gemini! You’ll be grateful for it soon.
Cancer April Horoscope (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 22)
Time to get busy, Cancer! Mars enters your sign this month, giving you all kinds of oomph and energy! Although, Cancer, you will have to decide exactly what to do with this energy. If you don’t, you could end up placing other’s needs ahead of your own. And all this will create is resentfulness. Watch out for a slightly aggressive edge too, as Mars does like conflict! As always, the Full and New Moons are important to you, being a Moon-ruled sign. The New Moon in Aries highlights your career life and perhaps presses a reset button for you. New opportunities can come into your life in the next few months, Cancer. However, this will take some work, and some purging. Both lunations feel pretty intense, and there’s transformation at hand for you. The Scorpio Full Moon highlights romance and friendship, giving you a culmination in one – or both – areas.
Leo April Horoscope (Leo Dates: July 23 – August 22)
Almost time to shine, Leo! No, it’s not your birthday month, but you can be forgiven for feeling like it is! You see, Leo, planets are moving into your career zone, bringing you success! This is especially true when you utilize the relationships that you have at work to get ahead. You have so much charm available to you right now – use it! Don’t be shy to work your charms, Leo! The fiery Aries Full Moon lights up your adventure zone, and you’re feeling so free! This may also open up avenues for travel or even studying something you’re passionate about! And, Leo – be open to surprises, okay? There’s strong Uranus energy around, which reflects in sudden, exciting changes for you. Don’t be too resistant. You don’t always have to be control, you know! And by the way – this Full Moon is also an important one for your career!
Virgo April Horoscope (Virgo Dates: August 23 – September 22)
Get ready for surprises, Virgo! You’re feeling all of a sudden very free and unencumbered! So much so that you may even be – uncharacteristically – taking risks! How thrilling! Go ahead, Virgo. Have some fun, and let your hair down. Welcome in new experiences, and expand your horizons! Fall in love with someone exotic, go somewhere you’ve never been. Study something weird, and allow your beliefs to change. Your ruler, Mercury, also shifts, which helps to lessen the fogginess you’ve been feeling, and to make some sensible decisions. Finances, especially, get a good looking at, and you’re able to talk through the tough stuff with your sweetheart. Try not to be too impulsive, Virgo. Yes, you! At least, when it comes to money matters. As for the rest, be reckless if you want to! You’ll still manage to land on your feet, having thoroughly enjoyed the ride!
Libra April Horoscope (Libra Dates: September 23 – October 22)
Time to get up close and personal, Libra. There has been a whirlwind of energy in your relationship zone, and now comes the real test! The test of true intimacy and togetherness, of how you can share (or not!). This boils down to material things such as finances, and psychological aspects, such as vulnerability. Aside from relationships, this is also a time where you may find yourself taking a risky financial step. However, this is also a step that may set you free. It’s your call, Libra, and you should trust yourself and your decisions. You always make the right choices because you really do think things through. Just be careful that you are not overly influenced by anyone else, what with Mercury moving into your relationship zone. It’s easy to buy into what others say you should do rather than what you feel you should do. Put yourself first, Libra.
Scorpio April Horoscope (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21)
Power, Scorpio. What does it mean to you? Where do you draw your sense of personal power from, and is it a taking or a receiving? If it’s taking, it’s time to reflect. You don’t need to take anyone else’s power away to renew your own. Others are capable of making their own decisions, their own opinions and choices. This is all so much more of a theme for you, as your modern ruler, Pluto, is going Retrograde. This can feel like a personal crisis at first, but simply offers you the opportunity for rebirth. And sometimes, rebirth is done quietly, subtly. The Full Moon is also a big one, in your own sign, Scorpio. It’s possible that a certain relationship matter comes unexpectedly to a head, in the most surprising of ways. Freedom is a theme, Scorpio, whether you like it or not. Find the stability in the chaos!
Sagittarius April Horoscope (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 21)
Fun, fun, fun, Sagittarius! This Aries New Moon promises plenty of it, though there are a few hurdles. However, there’s a strong chance that for those of you who are single to welcome new love. And if you have love, maybe to welcome the next step – a joint creation, for example; like a baby, or a passion project together. It’s a great time to have fun, to express yourself, to find a hobby! Look, in all honesty, Sagittarius, you’ll need some distraction from the other, more subtle energies at play. Pluto goes Retrograde in your house of complexes, and the Full Moon in Scorpio highlights issues emotional and psychological. Perhaps in some way, they come to a head and you can really see what they are. This all helps to work towards resolution, so be brave in facing your shadows, Sagittarius. You are a warrior at heart after all!
Capricorn April Horoscope (Capricorn Dates: December 22 – January 19)
Feeling like you are losing control, Capricorn? Maybe you are, just a little. And that’s perfectly okay – not the end of the world! Pluto goes Retrograde in your sign this month, reflecting your inner state of power. It’s tempting to try and control everything around you when you feel out of control. But see, instead, if you can just hold your own. You’ll be so proud of yourself, when you do. With lots of planets moving into Taurus, your romance zone, you have love to balance things out a little. However, be prepared for shifts and shakes in your love life, Capricorn! Be open to doing things in a new way, and for finding freedom in stability. Open up to different people that your “norm”, and don’t be scared to indulge in a bit of weirdness. Also, have fun, Capricorn. Indulge, play and luxuriate. You know you want to!
Aquarius April Horoscope (Aquarius Dates: January 20 – February 18)
Time to get your gypsy on, Aquarius! There’s a lot of moving and shaking going on in the foundations of your life this month. This can translate to an actual move, or just a shift in your home life. On one hand, there’s a greater sense of stability, and on the other, change. It’s an unlikely mix, but it seems to work for you. Try not to allow yourself to feel disempowered by anything that goes on, especially with the Pluto Retrograde triggering some deep-seated issues related to control. Be as conscious as you can, Aquarius! This month, make your family and home life the most important, even if you feel torn at the Full Moon. You’ll be able to make a decision then, though you must find a good balance, Aquarius. You need to redefine your goals and priorities, especially at work. Don’t allow others’ need to come first.
Pisces April Horoscope (Pisces Dates: February 19 – March 20)
Feeling passionate, Pisces? You can thank Mars moving into Cancer for that, which ramps up the heat in your love and creative life. Channeling your energy into these directions will leave you feeling quite fulfilled. However, Mars here can also be somewhat aggressive and pushy, so be careful of passive-aggression. This is especially true with your kids or lover, Pisces. April also makes communication very important for you. You have the gift of the gab this month – sweet words drip from your mouth like honey! Use your words wisely, though don’t be surprised if you find yourself saying shocking things! That would be the fault of the Sun-Venus-Uranus conjunctions. You’re more willing to embrace unusual ideas, and use technology to get your message across. It’s also a time where you could find yourself spending moments in nature, relaxing. The New Moon in Aries can bring a new financial beginning.
