Aries (March 21-April 19)
You start the month feeling passionate, driven, and ready to go. You’re unstoppable. Why wouldn’t you be? After all, it’s Aries season and your time to shine. Before you take a leap of faith, pause to make sure you are wholly in alignment. Sometimes the ego can be a trickster leading you down a slippery path or dead end. Meditate, center yourself, and clear mental chatter. Then, lead with your heart.
Professional opportunities abound as you reach a peak point in your career. On April 4, you could have realizations about karmic patterns or mental blocks to your success. You have a chance to face and heal these by April 30, if you remain conscious and aware. Resist the tendency to blame others. See yourself as a participant in an ongoing creation story with all. At the new moon on April 5, you could have a burst of inspiration or dream up a winning idea. Give yourself time to sit still and receive this divine download.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The sun enters your sign on April 20, and it’s time for a fresh start. First, you need to do a little letting go. Start with some spring cleaning. Does anything in your space belong in the past? If you’re having a hard time letting go, think of that object as a speed bump slowing you down. Then, reassess.
The new moon on April 5 is an introspective one for you. Follow any inclinations to meditate, journal, or create. Divine inspiration could change your life.

After that, passion will steer you in a new direction, and you will not be able to stall or hesitate. The green light means go!
The full moon on April 19 reminds you to take health matters seriously. Self-care is essential for your overall well-being, but it’s much more than a bubble bath and a cup of tea. It’s also seeking help when something doesn’t feel quite right. It’s nurturing your whole self.
Your love life feels sweet and sentimental early in the month. If you are single, you might be nostalgic. If you are involved in a relationship, you might feel a renewed sense of peace about it. At the end of the month, things shift slightly, and you begin to crave alone time. Take time to yourself to set intentions for your new solar year.

Mars in your sign motivates you throughout the month. On the plus side, you can accomplish a lot. At the same time, you could feel restless. Burn some of that extra energy off at the gym; it’s a great time to get into shape. Mars also fires up your competitive drive, making this a favorable time to submit a proposal or enter a contest.
Financial issues around April 4 could trigger insecurities. With conscious awareness, you will understand the deeper layers of fear underneath those triggers by April 30.
April’s astrology highlights your independent side, and those of you in relationships may crave more alone time. This changes with the full moon on April 19, which can awaken your desire for connection. It shifts your attention from me to us. If you are single, allow your resistances to dissolve. Trust in new beginnings, as you have learned enough from the past to not repeat those patterns.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Being a cardinal sign, you have initiative and drive. With an intuitive sense of the future, you hold a vision of your desired destination, personally and professionally. So, you might grow impatient with the step-by-step path you must take to arrive. This month, understand the future is the past is the present. You have already set intentions into motion with your thoughts, feelings, and prayers. Now, focus on the present moment and give your all. If you feel frustrated, shift focus, relax, and enjoy where you are right now.
The new moon on April 5 energizes your career, and you could learn of an opportunity or pursue a lead. Remember, you are focused on long-term success and may not immediately realize short-term gains. After April 19, your outgoing nature pays off. Even if you are a total introvert, you can be a connector when it counts. Keep this in mind as you attend events. Consider everyone you meet a potential ally or friend.
You have rare chances to dig deep within your psyche and uncover what may have been hidden for lifetimes. This soul work will most likely shift your relationships for the better. If your pattern is to give more than you allow yourself to receive, you could find out how to have more reciprocal relationships. If you tend to shut down rather than honor your boundaries, you could learn how to say no with grace. To have more fulfilling relationships and avoid feeling resentful in the long run, prioritize yourself this month.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
You have the energy you need to accomplish goals and the enthusiasm necessary for a creative breakthrough. So, stay focused on that which uplifts and supports you, and do not become distracted with the affairs of others. Involving yourself in others’ dramas is one way resistance and fear can show up for you. So, recognize them as such. Then, shift your focus back to you.
On April 5, the new moon activates your inner explorer. Plan a getaway if you can. At the least, change up your routine and try something new. With luck on your side, you could have a fortuitous encounter this month, but you need to have faith, especially on April 19.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Imagine taking a walk during a butterfly migration, looking up to see hundreds of little orange wings flapping in the wind. Butterflies are symbolic for transformation, a process you have come to understand. As we enter into this season of renewal and rebirth, at times you could feel like the caterpillar with a long way to go. At other times, you could feel like the butterfly, wholly transformed. You will receive clues about what this means for you with the new moon on April 5.
Financial matters could preoccupy your mind early in the month, especially from April 10 to the full moon on April 19. Seek professional help if you feel overwhelmed. Keep in mind: You can be prepared without being worried. Worry will not help you meet your goals; it will just add stress to your day-to-day life. Instead, bring your awareness to the present moment and breathe.
Professionally, you have the momentum to drive your career to a new level, especially after your ruling planet enters Aries on April 16. Use this energy wisely.
Your relationships are also undergoing a metamorphosis. You are keenly aware of your ideal, but anything less could seem unsatisfying at this time. Others might consider you to be picky right now, but really, you're careful, discerning, before entering a new chapter in love. If you are single, give yourself time to evolve before pursuing a new relationship. If you are already committed to a partner, you could desire to merge more fully with that person.
Libra (September 22-October 22)
As a Libra, others regard you as peaceful, charming, and graceful. Yet, you know what most don’t see: Underneath it all, you’re fierce and unstoppable. Tap into that power this month, and you will soar to new heights, personally and professionally. For some of you, this means setting boundaries and saying “no” when necessary. For others, it means letting go of your need to be liked. It could also mean taking an unpopular stand. Access your courage and trust the process.
The new moon on April 5 offers you a chance to review your relationships. Libra is the sign associated with partnership, and, from time to time, you may make compromises to keep the peace. However, with the sun in Aries, you have to prioritize your needs or the relationship could suffer. If you are single, you could have more dating activity this month than usual, especially as your ruling planet slides into Aries on April 20. Hurt from past relationships may have led you to wall off your heart, closing yourself to new romantic possibilities. Now is your chance to heal that hurt and renew your faith in love.
After April 20, attend to any ongoing financial matters. If you have considered seeking capital for your business, you could receive surprising news on April 22.
Around April 4, profound realizations about your family of origin could trigger an entire mindset shift. Be willing to dismantle any inherited limiting beliefs so you can freely be yourself.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
At this time in our history, we can no longer ignore corruption in any sphere now that the hidden shadow aspects of society have been brought into the light. We have seen this in corporations, government, media, and more. Now, think about your life for a moment. Are shadow aspects of yourself running amok and compromising your integrity? If so, it’s time to get to the bottom of the corruption within your psyche, especially at the full moon on April 19. Call out your shadow self if you consistently break your promises to yourself or others; if you judge or criticize yourself; or if you sabotage success. Heal and integrate these aspects, and you will live a more liberated life.
At the beginning of the month, you may feel busy with work and daily responsibilities. To maintain balance, find joy in the small things in your everyday life. Having a job may be unavoidable, but feeling stressed is optional. A subtle shift in attitude can help you feel satisfied despite a rigorous routine. Dedicate yourself and do your best; this period of work will pay off. On April 14, you could receive favorable financial news.
As the weather changes, your heart warms to the idea of love, particularly if you are single. At the beginning of the month, Venus in Pisces inspires romance, especially April 9.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Spring is a time of renewal, and you might feel a regenerative process happening in your life, too. You start the month feeling hopeful, optimistic, and alive. In this state, you can plant seeds of intentions. The new moon on April 5 ushers in a cycle of fertility, metaphorically or literally. Seed-planting is part doing (planting and fertilizing) and part being (waiting for those seeds to sprout). In your life, find this balance.
Jupiter starts to move backward on April 10, offering you the chance to revisit opportunities you might have missed in the past few months. Perhaps you lost an important business card; you could suddenly find it and reconnect with that person. Maybe you were overlooked for a position only to receive a better offer from the same company. You are coming full circle.
Prioritize your finances early in the month. You may have a more conservative approach to spending but avoid feeding fear. You could discover subconscious beliefs about money and prosperity from childhood. With conscious awareness, you can structure a new mindset by the end of the month.
A case of Spring Fever means a renewal of your love life. If your relationship weathered the winter, you can expect a surge of romance throughout the month.

Trust your souls will lead you to one another with ease.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
An interval workout consists of high-intensity exercise, during which you push yourself to your absolute limit and then catch your breath in a period of rest. Experts claim this type of workout maximizes the cardiovascular benefits of exercise. As you head into April, consider this metaphor. In the high-intensity times, you could feel stretched and pulled in different directions. Then, give yourself a period of rest to unplug and recharge.
The new moon on April 5 pulls your attention to home-related matters. You could be inspired to begin a home project or commence spring cleaning. As you do, nostalgic feelings could remind you of what home means—connection, safety, and love. If your childhood experience lacked any of those conditions, you might feel a need to form a new construct for yourself now. You could also reflect on how to create a more nurturing home environment for your children. Because this is a fertile time, you might consider welcoming a new child into the world. After April 20, these matters take precedence in your life.
The foundation for the family starts with your partnership, and this will be where you experience the most growth and transformation right now. Improve communication by listening intently as well as honestly expressing your perspective.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
You find yourself coming full circle this month in many ways. It is a time of manifestation when the intentions you’ve planted long ago are blossoming. Unlike before, you are approaching decisions from a wiser perspective, with greater awareness. At one time, you might have left your stable situation for a bright, shiny new beginning. Now, you balance your urge for freedom with your commitment to meeting long-term objectives. This will serve you well at the beginning of the month.
The new moon on April 5 inspires new ideas. You might sign up for a class or webinar to learn new skills. Your mind is open for expansion. Throughout your life, you may have felt different because of the way you think, but in reality, you have a visionary mind. Own your idiosyncrasies this month, and you will access the courage to change the system.
Despite a busy social schedule, you may feel more introverted this month. You are undergoing a spiritual transformation, and though it seems intangible, honor the process. Give yourself time to dream, journal, meditate, be in nature, or connect with friends on the same wavelength.
Romantic interests could captivate you, as Mars moves through Gemini. Resist being swept up in a fling if you suspect things could get messy.

You have the chance to do things differently this time.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
As the sun begins to shine and spring buds blossom, you could become a social butterfly. Venus shines in your sign, helping you feel joy in connecting with others. You’ve got magnetic attraction and can draw new people into your life, but be discerning. Energy vampires can seem charismatic and charming at first. Your intuition will guide you if you pay attention to the clues.
The new moon on April 5 draws you inward to reflect on financial matters, and you could strategize how to access resources for big-ticket items you desire. Attend to issues regarding taxes, investments, and debt early in the month, before the full moon on April 19, and maintain a positive mindset about it all.
After April 10, you could revisit professional goals that never transpired. If you reached out to a contact within the past six months but did not hear back, try again now with new resolve. You could also repurpose articles, photos, or posts that didn’t receive much attention at first. With Venus and Mercury in your sign at the beginning of the month, all eyes are on you until April 20.
In love, you may review a past relationship before starting a new chapter. If an ex reappears in your life, note the emotional patterns you played out in that relationship. You have a chance to do things differently this time. Beware of falling in love with potential, especially around April 2. Allow Venus to help raise your confidence and attract love from that elevated state.
