Can't get enough of your Broadly horoscopes? Join us for Cosmic Nights, a monthly dance party celebrating the sign of the season—think themed food, drinks, music, and magical surprises. Next up? A lush Taurus event in Brooklyn on April 27!

The moon in Virgo opposes Venus at 12:29 AM and we’re trying to figure out what we want. The moon enters Libra, the sign of balance and justice, at 7:22 AM—will we be any more decisive? Probably, since Mercury enters Aries at 2:01 AM, helping the energy pick up its pace. The moon opposes Mercury at 7:51 AM, asking us to sort out our feelings and weigh our options—something’s got to go, and we’re figuring out what that is. A climax is nearly here thanks to the upcoming full moon in Libra. Whatever choice you make, come from a place of kindness—towards others and also yourself.

All times EST.
