Forget About the Showers—April Horoscopes Are Here
This month, we’re transitioning from pioneering Aries to practical Taurus. It’s when you can expect your big vision to start taking shape. Your motto for April? Actions speak way louder than words now. It’s all about taking your enthusiasm and making good on it. When the sun is in Aries, you have plenty of ideas, but once it moves into Taurus, they start to take on a material form. Taurus is the sign of money, so this is also when your goals start to pay off. If you’ve been putting in the work, you start to get the rewards!
The stars are quiet for the first half of the month, with Mercury retrograde in Aries helping you restructure what you want and how you’re going to go about getting it. On the 15th, Mercury direct and a motivating Aries new moon help you do just that. The day before, lucky Jupiter in Scorpio syncs with business-minded Pluto in Capricorn to set you up for success. Serious Saturn retrograde on the 17th could feel like a delay, but it’s actually giving you more time to work on something you love.
The sun into Taurus on the 19th shifts the vibe from wild child to bon vivant, so get ready to enjoy some indulgent treats during the next month. Intense Pluto retrograde in Capricorn helps you think more critically about your career goals and upgrade them if needed. It’s more about the way you think about it than anything external, but if you do need to network, Venus in Gemini piques everyone’s mutual curiosity! By the time the Scorpio full moon lights up the sky on the 29th, you’ll be ready to reveal something big. What will be it be?
If Mercury retrograde in your sign since last month has you questioning your confidence, hang in there. In April, the stars are aligned for you to make a huge comeback! The cosmos is relatively quiet until the 14th, when lucky Jupiter syncs with rebirth planet Pluto in your career investment sectors. It’s a subtle shift, but if you pay attention, you’ll notice things start to go your way with co-workers and clients! Mercury direct and a new moon in your sign on the 15th help you make a totally fresh start in whatever area of your life needs it most. By the time a Scorpio full moon lands in your intimacy sector on the 29th, you’re totally feeling yourself. You look amazing, and you feel great too!
