It’s been a chaotic past weeks, to say the least. March started off with breaking news and huge scare amongst the world, and April doesn’t look too bright either. The important thing to remember is to stick together, because only united will help us get through these uncertain times.
As we turn to our April horoscope, we want to take a moment to celebrate all Aries and Taurus babies coming up – as well as Easter gatherings with whomever you’re currently confined at home with, or via Zoom and Houseparty to bring everyone together. There’s a full moon in Libra coming up on April 7th, and Mercury moving from Pisces into Aries on the 11th. As we approach the end of the month, the new moon on the 22nd will help us brainstorm new ideas and set goals for the next 6 months.
But before we divulge any more predictions, keep scrolling to find out what April has in store for you, the surprises you might encounter, and more!
March 21st – April 19th
Happy birthday dear Aries! While you may not be celebrating the way you originally intended to, try to make the most of it during these distressing times. The new moon will bring you a reassuring feeling that you’ve been lacking – don’t fret over not filing your days as productively as you hope, there’s a time for everything.
April 20th – May 20th
Divide your day into different parts to make the most of it without feeling like you’re not achieving as much as your peers. Get your work and tasks done, and don’t hesitate to throw in a meditation or quick workout in between. Your birthday month is coming up, and we want you full of energy and passion. PS: the new moon in your sign will send you the energy you need!
May 21st – June 20th
Things are looking lovey-dovey for you this month dear Gemini! The full moon in Libra also enters your house of romance; perhaps an old flame will make an appearance or someone you briefly met will get in touch to reconnect. You’ll also feel frustrated when it comes to your job – keep your communications as clear as possible and take a breather when needed.
June 21st – July 22nd
Feeling like you haven’t reached your true potential yet? Take this time at home to figure out where you want to be six months from now. Will you be taking a sharp turn to discover your real passion or will you stay put, safe and far from adventure? Pick your seat!
July 23rd – August 22nd
Your passion and heat in the moment is no secret to anyone that’s in a relationship with a Leo. This April though, try to take a different approach to a post-fight mood and be the bigger person. You’ll come out of it more gracious than ever and those around you will notice. Speaking of your peers, the new moon on the 22nd will offer a new prospective on your career, so stay tuned!
August 23rd – September 22nd
Life may not be easy right now, but there’s no need to despair. Set out a plan each day so you make the best out of it – consider working for one full hour followed by a 10-min break to be consistently productive. And on the days that you don’t feel 100% yourself, don’t beat yourself up and keep going at a slower pace.
September 23rd – October 22nd
Has this staying inside and working from home gotten you into the mood to learn a new skill? Don’t let the moment pass and get on it – there’s no right or wrong and it will get your creative juices flowing! On the finance front, while many of your favorite retailers may be offering sales, don’t get tempted and get your finances in order first.
October 23rd – November 21st
Scorpios aren’t known for their expansive communication skills; but over time you’ll want to get things out of the way and that means confronting the issues that are still out in the open. Get your relationships in order – call up a friend who’s living alone right now, and make sure to also set some time aside for yourself.
November 22nd – December 21st
Ok, you’re pretty disciplined to start with, and that’s such a great personality trait – but now’s the time to be a bit selfish too. Get a good start to the day and send out all the urgent emails, but after that you do you, boo! Binge watch a new TV show, bake a batch of cookies, spend an afternoon reading a magazine, whatever it is, do it for yourself!
December 22nd – January 19th
You’re not alone in going through a financial hit – so instead of despairing at home, plan your future. The full moon on the 7th will mark a special occasion and you will slowly notice things going back to normal. Don’t hesitate to reach for what you want – be aggressive and ambitious and don’t look back. There’s only one way to find out if it works!
January 20th – February 18th
Valentine’s day may already be far behind, but Aquarius always leaves a soft spot for their personal relationships and romance. While you figure out if you want to get married, have kids, or even go on a second FaceTime date, also use this time for yourself. Money-wise, it’s not all as bright as it looks but we’ll get out of it together after the 7th.
February 19th – March 20th
We bet you’re one of the many cooking and baking up a storm these days – and I’m sure your housemates couldn’t be happier. Just don’t let it take over your entire day, and prioritize your need and tasks too. The end of the month will give you some clarity about what the future holds, and which dreams you should be holding onto.
