Aries and Taurus

The sun in fire sign Aries illuminates the communication sector of your chart, finding you doing plenty of talking and researching this month. It’s a mentally busy period for you, one that also finds you connecting with your local neighborhood. Find quiet times to meditate or journal, step away from screens, and don’t be afraid to turn your phone off once in a while; with so much information being exchanged, you may find yourself tired, and it’s wise to pace yourself during Aries season (a zodiac sign known for charging full speed ahead!).


Mercury is in Pisces at the start of the month, finding you discussing money, and intriguing information is shared as Mercury mingles with Pluto, the planet of hidden things, currently in Capricorn, on April 2. A shift in energy arrives as Mercury enters Aries on April 3, sharpening your mental acuity and bringing an uptick in communication during what is already a very chatty time! If you have siblings, you may be reconnecting with them now. Venus is also in Aries during the beginning of the month, bringing messages of love and sweet banter your way—plus, Venus makes a flirtatious connection with Mars in fellow water sign Gemini on April 6.

Confusion may take place, especially concerning money, on April 9 as Mars clashes with Neptune in Pisces. Watch out for shady or lazy behavior. Neptune is the planet of delusion, but fortunately, Mercury, the planet of logic, connects with your realistic ruling planet of reality, Saturn (currently in your sign) on April 10, creating a more grounding energy around communication. Also on April 10, sweet Venus mingles with lucky Jupiter, (which is also in Aquarius), creating an open-hearted, generous, and affectionate atmosphere.

A new conversation or fresh way of considering things arrives with the new moon in Aries on April 11—but there’s an intensity in the air as Venus clashes with the planet of the underworld, Pluto. Again, watch out for shady behavior, power struggles, envy, and manipulation. This is a crucial time to bring in a third party to help mediate, especially if you feel like someone is trying to play mind games with you. Bringing in an unbiased third party could help balance the energy, as exposing bad behavior can transform the dynamic.  


A more upbeat energy comes on April 13 as the sun connects with action planet Mars, and cozy vibes flow at home as Venus enters Taurus on April 14—you may decide to redecorate! Lucky energy flows as the sun connects with Jupiter on April 15, but you’ll have to watch out for control issues and big egos again as the sun clashes with Pluto on April 16. Keep in mind how fearful some people can be of change: Fear of change and the unknown could be the catalyst for unusual or bad behavior, so bring in someone who can help! 

Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter align on April 17, creating an expansive atmosphere that’s wonderful for communication, creativity, and your love life. Mars in Gemini may find you enjoying the thrill of the chase, and as it connects with lucky Jupiter and chatty Mercury, you could be flirting with some cuties, or find that you and your partner are connecting passionately!

Mercury and Pluto square off on April 17, so you may have to contend with power struggles, shady behavior, and manipulators again. This is an extremely powerful time for research, exploring hidden things or secrets, as some information may be exposed. The sun meets Mercury on April 18, bringing a breakthrough in understanding. A new journey begins, and with this new perspective, things simply can’t remain the same. Mercury and the sun enter Taurus on April 19, finding you in a nostalgic mood, connecting with the past. These planets activate the home and family sector of your chart, and you might be making surprising changes regarding your living situation or close relationships as Venus and Uranus meet in Taurus on April 22.

Action planet Mars enters water sign Cancer on April 23, bringing you a boost in energy to tackle your chores and potentially start some exciting new gigs or projects. You’re feeling energized to rethink your approach to wellness, too. Mercury meets Uranus on April 24, bringing unexpected news, likely concerning your personal life, and Mercury and Venus meet after clashing with Saturn on April 25, finding you setting important boundaries around home and family.

So much of your focus is on your personal life toward the end of the month, but the full moon in Scorpio on April 26 is major for your career, as a culmination takes place concerning reward, recognition, and your professional goals! You’re famously aloof, Aquarius, but during this full moon in brooding water sign Scorpio, you’re exploring a more intense side of yourself as emotions surface. Pluto retrograde begins on April 27, finding you having some especially intense dreams. This is a powerful time for inner work.

Mercury and Neptune connect on April 29, creating a sweet, open-hearted energy around communication. If there are resources you need, you may be able to come up with creative ways to attain them at this time. The sun meets your ruling planet Uranus on April 30, finding you breaking free from the past in an exciting, unusual, or unexpected way. You’re in the mood to experiment, remembering how much you hate fitting in with the crowd—you’ve always loved doing your own thing, Aquarius, and you’re especially feeling that way now!

Good luck this month, Aquarius, and see you in May!
