Aries (3/21 - 4/20)
April will be a month for reflection, review, and revision! Although the Sun will be in action-oriented Aries through April 18th, the influence of several retrograde planets will not support new commitments or the initiation of new ideas. You’ll have the opportunity to clear out some emotional and psychological baggage. This month’s Mercury retrograde will begin in Taurus, but retrogrades back into your Sun sign on April 20th. Take extra care to slow down this month as you’ll be more prone to making careless errors when you get in a rush.
Venus retrograde (March 4 - April 15) continues during the first half of April, yet the shadow phase will last until May 18th. Last month, Venus retrograde in your Sun sign put the focus on you! Your values, beliefs, and relationships were all up for review. This month, Venus has moved back into Pisces and your 12th house of the subconscious and spirituality. You’ll still be re-evaluating your beliefs, but there will now be the chance to dig a little deeper into your psyche.
Any discoveries you made last month about yourself or a partner may have been the tip of the iceberg. Use the time that Venus is in Pisces (April 2 - April 27) to examine some of the thoughts and feelings that may have been buried in your subconscious. It will be an especially potent time to benefit from counseling and/or spiritual guidance.
Saturn, planet of rules, structure, and life lessons, will station retrograde on April 6th, initiating a cycle that will last until August 25th. This will be helpful for Aries who may be struggling with feelings of impatience. All year, Saturn in Sagittarius has been forming a favorable trine to Uranus in your Sun sign, helping you to identify what inspires you. This is an exciting year for you, Aries, but you will need to do some “homework.”
The next few months, while Saturn is retrograde, consider how you’d like to prioritize your use of time, energy, and resources. There are exciting energies afoot, however, it can be easy to lose focus and miss out on a valuable opportunity. Take some time to sort through the ideas that excite you and refine your vision. Consider the time and effort required to follow a dream and ask yourself to commit to what you want. With Saturn transiting your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education, this will be a great time to go back to school or enroll in a mentorship program that requires you to stretch your capabilities.
The Libra Full Moon on April 11th will shine a light on partnership issues. This will be a valuable time to see a relationship clearly and/or clarify your personal goals. It could become obvious where you are contributing too much or too little to a relationship or joint venture. Look for ways to create more balance and harmony in a romantic partnership, platonic relationship, or business agreement.
On April 19th, the Sun will ingress into Taurus, ushering in a much-needed grounding energy. The last few weeks of the month will be ideal for self-care and taking time to enjoy life’s pleasures. Pluto will station retrograde on April 20th, adding to the astrological encouragement to pull back and weigh your options. From April 20th to September 28th, it will be a great time to evaluate your career or any type of work with the public.
The April 26th New Moon will be in Taurus and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. Use the power of this New Moon to set goals related to making money, long-term security, and recognizing your own value.
