Welcome to Aries Season! As the first sign of the zodiac, we’re celebrating another astrological year. It’s a time of rebirth and new beginnings as Aries inspires us to take action in our lives. But, as much as we want to move forward this month, April will be marked by four planets changing direction, including Mercury.
Aries Season points to Mars and with Mars in Taurus for most of April, we’re feeling a slower vibe. As much as Aries wants to race to the finish, Mars in Taurus will invite us to take our time and look for the value. This will also be a month to cultivate material stability and fertility.
That said, Venus, the ruler of Taurus, will be retrograde until April 15, adding another underline under this month’s theme around value. Is it worth it? Are we worth it? We can’t quite move forward with Aries because we’ve got revisit the past.
Speaking of revisiting the past, Mercury will turn retrograde on April 9, retracing a path between Taurus and Aries. If Mercury is the planet of choice, then we have to take a second look at the value of our choices this month. (Just a friendly reminder: Don’t freak out about Mercury Retrograde. It’s a time to edit instead of tell a new story.) If anything, April will be a month to be mindful, conscious of our decisions, and conscious of where we can make better choices in how we interact with people, engage in relationships, and where we spend our time and money.
We also can’t forget Saturn this month, another planet making a change in direction. Pivoting at 27 degrees Sagittarius, we’re getting to the last stretch in a journey we’ve been on since 2015 — a journey where we’ve had to get crystal clear about what we believe in and how we see the world. Saturn in Sagittarius has been a quest for faith and truth … or a loss of faith over the past two years. Depending on what sign you are, you have a major check in with the planet of Getting Your Stuff Together and you’ll have an area of your life scrutinized to check in on your progress.
Lastly, Aries is a cardinal sign, a sign that aligns to the beginning of a new season. Aries — and by extension Libra and Capricorn — have been the location of major upheaval over the past few years courtesy of Uranus and Pluto. This month will be another check in with these two planets that are pushing us to completely transform who we are and our lives. The Libra Full Moon on April 11, square Pluto and opposite Uranus, will bring another evolutionary wave for us to incarnate. And true to Libra, we will have to bring balance to our lives. It’s an evolutionary imperative.

March 21–April 19
Happy birthday, Aries! As you celebrate another year and another turn around the Sun, you do so in the middle of your life shifting gears. While usually you’re one for action, you may find that April will be tossing a lot your way. As the month opens up, you’re continuing to focus on money and material stability with Mars still in Taurus. Do you have your basic needs covered? Are you making enough money or have enough resources? Maybe this is an area that hasn’t 100% panned out yet. With Mars sending its energy back to Venus Retrograde, you’ve been having to reevaluate a lot of things in your life, wondering if it’s worth it. Well, is it? Enjoy Taurus’s slower pace; Mars Gemini on April 21 has a reputation for being busy. That said, another major gear shift this month will be Saturn Retrograde on April 6. This is a new chapter in a story in how you see the world, what you believe it, and your faith in something higher. In fact, this is a story that has been unfolding since 2015. You may have a major journey planned this month or you’re making a major move in your education. What you believe in may put you at odds with others. How will you negotiate a new understanding? Speaking of other people, Venus, your relationship planet, will dip back into Pisces on April 2. You’ve been rewinding a relationship story since March and seeing how Pisces is a very quiet, secluded place for Venus, you may have to take a deep look at any unconscious patterns around love and value. What’s your hidden pain? Do you have psychic or emotional knots that keep you from fully connecting to others? Then on April 20 Pluto will turn retrograde, creating ripples in your career, your responsibilities, and your direction in life. It’s safe to say that your professional life has been a place of major transformation over the past few years. Pluto will, once again, hold the mirror to your ambitions and achievements, revealing a facet that has to change. Do you need a career change or a new professional perspective? What responsibilities do you need to let go of? Last, but not least, the full moon on April 11 will turn the spotlight on relationships even more. You may have a decision to make about a partner or an interpersonal connection, a decision that may require a change or a radical rethink. How can you and a mate or even a close connection be authentic with each other? If you’re single, don’t hold back in going after what you really want.

April 20–May 20
It’s almost your birthday, Taurus. Which means that you’re in the homestretch of a personal year, a time in your calendar when you turn inward and reflect on the last twelve months. What do you want to let go of and not bring into the next year? (I know, Taurus. You’re not the first sign to let go so easily.) That said, it’s been a little bit of a mixed bag of late. On one hand Mars has been heating up Taurus, giving you drive and stamina to take the lead. On the other, Venus has been retrograde since early March. It’s like every time you take a step forward, you have to take a step back. (Maybe you’ve been dancing?) Venus will dip in Pisces on April 2, turning you back towards a path you walked in late January. Pisces is your sign of friendships and community, so keep an eye out for themes along those lines, especially if something from January has been unresolved. Then there’s Saturn. It’s been pushing you to step your game up in finance, wealth, and debt. How have you been getting this part of your life in order? Have you been heeding Saturn’s call for responsibility? Saturn’s annual retrograde on April 6 will be a sit down with the planet of mastery and getting your act together. Saturn will not let you slack in the money department and you’ll have to examine how your beliefs impact how you feel safe and secure. Saturn will also touch on themes of intimacy, power, and the psyche. You may want to find time to talk to a trusted confidant this month, especially if any deep emotions come up. The full moon on April 11 till highlight health and wellness. Couple that with Saturn, and it will be an excellent month to bring attention and balance to your physical as well as your emotional health. The Sun’s tangle with heavy hitting Pluto and Uranus on April 14-18 may bring up a lot of emotional material as well. In short, April will press buttons and touch on many deep, lifelong emotional themes. But there will be a call for release, for healing, and for transformation. Not a bad way to wrap up a personal year so that you can start your birthday off on a very different footing. Oh and Mercury will be retrograde this month. Then again, that seems like small potatoes compared to everything else. You know the drill by now. Want to learn more about how the astrology of April will affect you? Book your consultation now.

May 21–June 20
You’re used to juggling, right? After all, Gemini is known for its keen adaptability. You’re going to need your flexibility this month because with four planets changing directions, life will be turning a corner. First, let’s talk about Aries Season. This is the time in your personal calendar when you turn your attention to community, friendships, and social connections. It’s a big picture month, one where you look toward the future and dream up new goals and ambitions. But, as much as you may be looking ahead, Mercury, your ruling planet, will turn retrograde on April 9. And it’ll do so in a sign that teaches you about letting go and surrender. So, ask yourself this month, what will you need to release in order to move ahead? What steps will you have to retrace or revisit, especially with a friend or in your community? Then there’s Saturn. The planet of maturity, responsibility, and milestones has been working its way through your relationship sign of Sagittarius since September 2015. That’s a long time. But that’s what Saturn does. It spends a couple of years scrutinizing different areas of your life and for you, Gemini, you’ve had to do serious work on how you relate and connect to other people. Maybe you began a major relationship or ended one in the last year or so. When Saturn changes direction on April 6, a relationship or partnership will need your attention. Saturn will demand commitment, definition, and balance. This will also be a call for maturity as Saturn speaks to growing older. (You know, adult stuff.) If that wasn’t enough to juggle, Venus and Pluto will change direction on April 15 an April 20 respectively. With Pluto putting pressure on Jupiter, your relationship planet, something hidden may come to the surface. Or, you may have to look at aspects of your emotional self that you are unconscious of and project onto a partner. Last, but not least, Mars will arrive in Gemini on April 21. As much as Mars will inspire you to move forward and take action, you may have to wait until Mercury turns direct on May 3 to get traction.

June 21–July 22
Cancer, it’s a big month. Many of April’s gear shifts will touch on life’s more important areas — home, relationships, and career. Then again, April is a time when the Sun shines its light onto the highest reaches of your chart. It’s about ambition, achievement, and securing your place in the world. It’s also about responsibility and April will open up with you focused on what you need to do to get ahead as well as looking ahead to the future. You’ve been working hard the last couple of years. With Saturn’s long visit to your chart’s sector of work and health, the name of the game has been discipline. Maybe you needed a strong dose of order and structure after life’s many many changes over the last six or seven years. On April 6, Saturn will turn retrograde, putting pressure on you to make a change in your health and diet or an aspect of your daily life. Saturn shows us where something is out of balance, it shows us our limits. Do you still need to get serious about how you take care of your body? How you attend to the important details of your daily life? In order for you to really open up to the opportunities of Aries Season — Aries is your career sign, by the way — you need to get your ducks in a row, as they say. Then there’s the home. The full moon on April 11 will shine a spotlight on the very foundation of your life. As a result, you may have a serious decision to make about your living situation or the full moon may shed light on something with your family. Do you need to move? Do you need to get to the root of a matter? The full moon will also activate a configuration of planets that has brought in seismic changes. April may feel like a chapter in a story that has been unfolding for years. Venus’s direct turn on April 15 may bring clarity or a different perspective on events that emerged around the full moon. Additionally, Pluto’s change of direction on April 20 will dig into a sticky theme you’ve been working through in your relationships — power, control, transformation, secrets, obsession. How will you face your shadow? Lastly, Mars will change signs on April 21, taking some of the action behind the scenes, As you wrap up April, Mars will motivate you to take it easy, rest, reflect, and recuperate. Use this energy to open up your intuitive abilities as well. Want to learn more about how the astrology of April will affect you? Book your consultation now.

July 23–August 22
Aries Season is travel season for you, Leo. Time to stretch your wings and explore the world. You may have a big trip planned or looking toward shorter getaways this month. With the energy of Aries pointing toward your career, you may be traveling for work as well! Even if you can’t travel, April is a natural time in your personal calendar to push the boundaries of what you know and how you see the world. Think philosophy, books, and education. But the big focus this month will be Saturn’s long term visit to your chart’s sector of creativity, identity, and self expression. Have you been working extra hard on creative projects over the past couple of years? Do you have a deeper, more mature sense of who you are and the talents you have to share? Saturn’s annual turn will be a check in on this process of maturity. Even though Leo is a sign that is naturally about the self and the celebration of individuality, Saturn has been kicking it up a notch. As a result, do you even know who you are anymore? (Sorry, had to get a little existential on you.) Saturn is your relationship planet, too, so there may be a deeper thread running through romantic themes and how you express who you are in relationships. To that point, Venus will be wrapping up its retrograde this month, a time when we’ve all had to reevaluate what we love and how we relate. Its direct turn on April 15 will dig into a deep knot around intimacy, trust, and the psyche. Since this month will also be a month that will hinge on communication — the full moon on April 11 will underscore this — the planets will really be pressing you to be honest and open to revealing the deepest parts of yourself, even if it’s painful. The full moon may also coincide with running around town, fielding calls, emails, and going from different appointments. You may hear news or information around that time as well, especially in regards to work and money. Another thing to keep in mind is that Mars has been heating up your career since early March. While this can make for a career peak, a natural time when you’re really being proactive about making gains and strides in the world, Mars can put you on the defensive as well. Maybe you’ve had a few fires to put out professionally since March. When Mars changes signs on April 21, it will heat up friendships and your social networks into May. The latter half of the month may be a very social time for you as a result. On the same day Venus and Saturn will square off and you may have a big decision to make in your career or with a relationship. Lastly, Pluto will turn retrograde on April 20 (yes, another retrograde to keep track of), bringing up a deeper story about how you take care of yourself, your health, and any workaholic tendencies. Pluto says something will have to change. Want to learn more about how the astrology of April will affect you? Book your consultation now.

August 23–September 22
As April opens, you may be packing your bags for a long distance voyage or looking for new perspectives through books or classes. But, on a deeper level, you may be questioning your faith or wondering what it all means. Additionally, Aries Season is a time in your personal calendar when you dig into life’s deeper emotions and feelings — trust, intimacy, vulnerability. As you work through your emotional baggage this month — either on your own or with a partner — be aware of how it is shifting your view of the world. Mercury, your ruling planet, will be retrograde starting April 9. Use this month to open up instead of shutting down. That said, there will be a big emphasis on home and family this month. Saturn has been a bit of a weight on you over the past couple of years. It’s been pushing you to tend to your roots, fix any structural problems in your life, and take responsibility in the family. Conversely, it’s been a time to lay a new foundation and take the next big step like making a major move or welcoming a new addition to the family. When Saturn turns retrograde on April 6, it will be the next chapter in a story that has been unfolding since September 2015. And with Jupiter still running up against Pluto and Uranus, you may need to take a new look at something close to home. It may even touch on value or money in some way. The full moon on April 11 will put finance in the spotlight and you may have a decision to make about spending, your income, as well as a partner’s income — perhaps unexpectedly so. Venus’s direct turn on April 15 will bring more clarity to the story behind the full moon. Then on April 21, Mars will move into your career sign, turning up the heat on your professional life. The rest of the month will be a great time to push out into the world and take the next step toward achievement and success. But with Mercury retrograde into May 3, use the two week layup to sketch up plans on how you’re going to use Mars to get ahead in life. Don’t be afraid to take a new course professionally when Mercury turns direct, again, on May 3. Want to learn more about how the astrology of April will affect you? Book your consultation now.

September 23–October 22
Aries Season is relationship season, a time in your personal calendar when the Sun shines on how you connect with others. Seeing how Libra is a partner driven sign, you’re right in your element. Then again, Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and relationship, has been retrograde since early March. Meaning, you’ve had to evaluate a relationship or how you connect with a partner. Retrogrades are inherently about the past. You’re retracing a line through your life, a line that often links with other moments in time. When Venus dips back into Pisces in April 2, you’ll be reaching back to events or experiences from late January — anything that touches on work, service, and health. The middle of April may have a more serious vibe. Between the full moon on April 11 and Venus’s direct turn on April 15, a lot may be coming up for you — emotionally, psychically, and physically. The full moon will catch on Chiron, pointing to a knot around how you attend to the details of your daily life, a knot that you’ll have to disentangle. Plus, Venus will square Saturn. As a result, you’ll have a serious decision to make. Saturn will make you get real, which can either bring a major step up or send you back to the drawing board. Speaking of Saturn, we can’t forget that Saturn will turn retrograde on April 6, touching on a story that has been unfolding the last couple of years around your voice, how you communicate, and even your education. How are you taking what you say seriously? How committed are you to learning and gaining new skills? By December you’ll be done with this lesson, but Saturn will still be holding you to it over the coming months. Not to be outdone by Saturn, Pluto will turn retrograde on April 20, speaking to a much bigger story around home, family, and where you root yourself into the world. Does your life need a new foundation? Then on April 21 Mars will switch signs, breathing some fresh air into this whole relationship rodeo you’ve been in since Venus turned retrograde. Make sure you’re getting some perspective. Did I mention Mercury turns retrograde on April 9? Double check that perspective. Want to learn more about how the astrology of April will affect you?

October 23–November 21
I don’t have to tell you, Scorpio, that you have a tendency to be a workaholic. What with Aries as your sign of projects, work, and health. Aries is all go go go and April is a natural time in your personal calendar to get disciplined and organized, tending to both the daily grind and the details that get you through your day. But here’s the thing. Mars, the ruler Aries, will be pointing towards relationships until April 21, which means you can’t do it alone. Did you hear me, Scorpio? Find yourself a partner, a buddy, a mate to hold you accountable and help you launch your ideas into the world. Speaking of relationships, the other big news is that Venus has been retrograde since early March. Venus is your relationship planet and you’ve had to do two things while Venus winds its way back. One, take a big look at discernment around relationships and how you stand up for yourself. Two, past romances and romantic patterns. Scorpio can be very hot and cold when it comes to love, all in or highly guarded. This Venus Retrograde, especially as it turns direct on April 15, will be an opportunity to undo some old knots around the heart. Then there’s Saturn Retrograde on April 6, another retrograde in a month filled with planets turning forward and backward. (Psst — Mercury will be retrograde this month, too.) Saturn will touch on a bigger story that has been unfolding around money and material stability, a two year period of consolidating assets and working hard to achieve a more mature relationship with money. This month will be a check in with this process and Saturn will want to make sure you’re doing your due diligence. It may even hint at making some changes in your career or direction in life. And Saturn’s turn may require you to have a completely different approach to how you earn a living either by separating yourself from something old or innovating something new. That said, health will be in the spotlight this month and the full moon on April 11 will point you toward healing the soul as well as the body. What habits do you need to shed? Where do you need to let go of parts of yourself that aren’t really you? Lastly, Mars, your ruling planet, will change signs on April 21, turning you toward an area of life you’re quite familiar with — transformation, death and rebirth, deep emotions, intimacy, and trust. You’ll be working through your shadow into May. No big deal, right Scorpio? You live for an opportunity to shed your skin. Want to learn more about how the astrology of April will affect you? Book your consultation now.

November 22–December 21
On paper, there are many reasons why Aries Season is supposed to be fun for you. After all, Aries is the sign that helps you show off your creativity, your talents, and the things that bring passion to your life. But, honestly Sagittarius, you’ve been in the middle of some heavy duty planets that have been anything but fun — unless your idea of fun is going through a meat grinder. (A Scorpio friend can give you pro tips slash moral support.) So, what’s going on? Why is everything so intense right now? See, your ruling planet, Jupiter, has been caught in a formation with Pluto and Uranus since November, which has been putting immense amount of pressure on you to figure your stuff out. Capital S stuff. Pluto has been holding a mirror, showing you everything that has to change or evolve. Uranus has been shaking you to be authentic to who you are at your core, letting go of anything that has been holding you back. Translation? Everything’s been changing because you’ve had to change, but it’s been hitting deep into your soul and tugging into the most sensitive parts of you. Deep breath. So maybe it’s welcome relief that it’s Aries Season. Maybe this will be the month that you do some art therapy, dance more, throw a party. Because, as any Sag knows, you have to find time to celebrate and look on the bright side. Keep that in mind as Saturn turns retrograde in Sagittarius on April 6, highlighting a two year story around growing up, getting older, and taking on more responsibility. If anything, Saturn has been helping you define who you are and the role you need to play in the world. Speaking of retrogrades, Mercury will flip direction on April 9, commencing a 3-4 week period of looking and reevaluating relationships and your direction in life. (You know the drill; this happens three times a year.) Then on April 11, a full moon will light up Jupiter, your ruling planet, and its visit to your chart’s sector of friends, community, and social networks. Full moons put things in the spotlight; we see things for what they are. You may have a decision to make within your social circle or group connection, something that may hit close to home or force a change in how you relate to someone. On a bigger level, the full moon will help you relate to friends, groups, and your network in a very different way, but first you’ll have to examine some deeply rooted emotions. Lastly, Mars will arrive in Gemini, your relationship sign, on April 21, kicking off a period into June that will highlight how you interact with people, both romantically and on a one-on-one basis.

December 22–January 19
Mark your calendar because you’re only eight months away from the start of a major new chapter. Did that perk you up a bit, Capricorn? It should. Your ruling planet, Saturn, has been in a state of retreat, limbo, and reflection for the last two years. It’s not to say that this has been an unproductive time, but a lot of the action has been taking place behind the scenes as you shed the layers of your old life and prepare to be reborn. And you could use a rebirth after the personal upheavals of the last however many years. I mention all this because Saturn will turn retrograde on April 6, activating a search for meaning and deeper spiritual connection that commenced in 2015. What do you now believe in? How is your faith? How are internal shifts changing the direction your life is headed in? Let’s not forget that Venus, your career planet, will be retrograde until April 15. You may be trying to figure some things out in the meantime. The full moon on April 11 will put career and responsibilities in the spotlight. You may have a decision to make about your professional life or hear about a change of job. Just give it a few days until Venus turns direct before you make any big moves. That said, this will be a big month for you, Capricorn, the planets pulling at the four corners of your life. In fact, Aries Season is a time in your personal calendar when the Sun shines on home, family, and roots. As a result, you may be spending more time at home, tending to your inner circle, moving house or even making a change in your living situation. The other area getting some attention is you. Between Pluto turning direct in Capricorn on April 20 and Mars hanging out in Taurus until April 21, you’ve got some figuring out to do about who you are and how you’re going to express it. Don’t be afraid to look at your shadow, the facets of you that you may not love or want to own. April will be a good opportunity to let them go. When Mars arrives in Gemini on April 21, some of the story will start to shift toward health, wellness, fitness, and diet. As much as the later part of the month will pull you to take new initiative with your health, you’ll also need to take action on existing issues. Make sure you’re tending to your emotional health as well. Want to learn more about how the astrology of April will affect you? Book your consultation now.

January 20–February 18
How are your friendships going? What’s your community and your social network look like? There’s an irony to you, Aquarius. For a sign so aligned to connection, you can sometimes feel alienated, cut off. Over the last two or so years, Saturn, your ruling planet has been working its way through a part of your chart that speaks deeply to this fundamental Aquarian theme — where do you belong in the fabric of humanity? Even though Saturn is your ruling planet, you’re not getting off easy and you’ve had to do a serious reevaluation of who you are connected to. Keep this in mind this month as Saturn turns retrograde on April 6, touching on this story of belonging that has unfolded since 2015. April will be a check in and Saturn will give you feedback on your progress. Additionally, Aries Season is a time in your personal calendar when the Sun shines on communication, education, and travel. Generally this tends to be a busy time of year with appointments and places to go. Maybe it’s impacting your rest because the energy of Mars has been pointing toward home, family, and your foundation. It’s hard to feel relaxed when Mars is shaking up some of your most private, intimate spaces. Speaking of travel and education, the full moon on April 11 may bring a far away opportunity, either to go learn or to experience the culture or wisdom of a far away land. Can’t travel? The full moon may bring a decision about higher education, specialized study, or even an opportunity to get your ideas out into the world. Whatever does happen, give it a few days until Venus turns direct on April 15 to make any decisions. (Do remember, though, that Mercury is retrograde for much of April. Yes, you can still make decisions, but you may not have all the information.) Venus Direct will also touch on a deep emotional knot, one that runs through value. Going back to the questions I first asked you, do you feel like you belong? If not, is it because of a pain or wound around self worth? Use April to dig into that as much as you can so that you can release it. Then on April 21, Mars will change signs and heat up a part of your chart that deals with creativity, self expression, and identity. Time to really express who you are, the gifts you have, and the talents you want to share with the world.

February 19–March 20
How are you feeling, Pisces? Is your world shaking a little bit? Are things shifting, changing, rapidly so? As a sign known for its sensitivity, it can be hard to take this roller coaster in stride. You’ve had a couple months of big deal astrology going on in your chart, what between February’s solar eclipse in Pisces and Jupiter’s tangle with heavy hitting Uranus and Pluto. Further, Jupiter — your ruling planet, by the way — has been working through a part of your chart that has to do with trust, intimacy, deep emotions, and facing your fears. Translation? You’re going through the wringer right now. So, what’s a Pisces to do? First, know that you’re in a time in your life when things have to change. You have to transform, evolve, and let go of anything that’s incompatible with who you want to be and what you want to create in the world. Use this time to work with a trusted counselor or someone who can teach you new emotional and energetic tools to help with this evolution. Second, in order to evolve, you have to face the parts of yourself that are uncomfortable and secreted away. The full moon on April 11 will shine a spotlight on this process of emotional confrontation and self discovery. You can do this, Pisces! Another major focus this month is Saturn’s long term visit to your career sign. Over the past two years, you’ve been working hard to make structural changes in your professional life, either embarking on a new career or taking the next big step up in your current profession. April will be a check in on your progress, this long chapter of you figuring out what you want to be when you grow up and putting it into manifestation. Similarly, with the Sun shining its light on Aries this month, this is also a time in your personal calendar to consolidate and create more material security in your life. As a result, you may be more keenly aware of the money you have and what you’re spending it on. Lastly, Mars will switch signs on April 21, heating up one of the most sensitive parts of your chart — the home. Mars can be a bit of a noisy guest in the home or amongst family. On one hand it may be a perfect time to take initiative and make a change in the home or you may find that your living situation is anything but peaceful. If you’re looking to make a purchase for the home, just make sure it’s really worth it. Want to learn more about how the astrology of April will affect you? Book your consultation now.
