First and foremost, Happy Easter and happy Passover! Hopefully you’ve escaped the city buzz and are spending the weekend with close friends and family to enjoy some well deserved chocolate eggs, panettone and all Easter-related goodies to indulge in! Next up, we’re already in April (and no this isn’t April Fools) and we’re celebrating both Aries and Taurus! This month is all about putting things into action/motion and tentatively aiming towards your next goal – which brings us to the end of the first quarter of 2018 – who’d have thought? Let’s start by focusing on new priorities and perhaps shifting some to make room for your creative mind to run wild and free. Let’s start off by ending March with a full moon tonight, and the new moon falling right at the middle of the month on April 15th.
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! If you had time to catch up on your March horoscope amidst all the snow storms, spring arrivals and Easter planning you’ll remember to set your priorities straight and to focus on quality over quantity. How’s that looking so far? Any progress? Make sure not to take on too many activities, especially if you feel your enthusiasm fading and make room for new creative pursuits. Be communicative and make yourself get heard – because we all know that if you don’t ask, you don’t get! And if you still are hanging onto something you know you should let go, the new moon on April 15th might help you get started…
April 20th – May 20th
Valentine’s Day might long be gone, but this month is all about romance dear Taurus. Your partnership sector will see progress you’ve been waiting to happen which will be followed by passion and adventure. What’s more, with the new moon on the 15th and your birthday month following that, there’s a good chance that your dreams might soon turn into reality. You’re a hard worker and Taurus is the sign of money and we see no reason why things shouldn’t work out.
May 21st – June 20th
If you feel like you’ve been stuck for a while, then blame the stars and planets. Take the opportunity to wander and reach out to old friends and colleagues to get some sense of direction into old and new endeavours. There’s nothing like catching up with an old work pal or looking into your friendship network on who could give you a hand when it comes to leadership and guidance. Mercury direct and the new moon on April 15th will be great timing to forge and deepen these relationships and make things happen! Get ready for a successful pitch!
June 21st – July 22nd
It might only be April 1st but the past couple of months have already taken a toll on you. Feeling tired but sort of reluctant to ask for a helping hand? Use this month to be more communicative with those who surround you (see: first paragraph) and don’t hesitate to ask for help and advice. While you’re there, how about going solo whilst already carving out some much needed me time? Try a new workout class or eating out by yourself next time? If you need tips, here’s a quick guide.
July 23rd – August 22nd
March went by quicker than lightning speed and suddenly you realize that many of your planned goals and projects aren’t anywhere close to where you’d imagined them to be. Thankfully April brings in a new month and a new season – get ready to put your plans back into action and explore your creativity and energy. With a little help of a joyous new moon on April 15th, you’ll be out of your uneventful routine in no time!
August 23rd – September 22nd
This month is all about better communication and deepening your personal relationships. Even better, you’ll discover a new side of yourself which is more demanding and adventurous – get the message across to your friends and partner and you’ll soon realize that nothing is too taboo. What better time than a new month and new season to unleash your inner beast and become more outspoken about your wishes?
September 23rd – October 22nd
With spring almost in full bloom, we can’t blame you if all you’ve got on your mind is splurging on a new wardrobe item or getting a much-needed facial, but as we all know money and spending can be a tricky thing. We’re all for purchasing the latest thing, but we also want to keep peace and happiness at the centre stage of your relationship, so whatever you do, make sure to communicate it to your partner and ensure you’re on the same wave-length. Smart spending is what we’re all about!
October 23rd – November 21st
Consider April your month dear Scorpio! Fine, we might be months away from your actual birthday and ruling sign but the next weeks are subject to exciting projects. First up, you’ll be focused on a new goal you set for yourself for a while now and are finally putting it into action with the right inspiration. Next up, expect Jupiter and Pluto to give you a nudge when it comes to creativity – the end of the month with the Scorpio full moon is bound to pay off all the effort!
November 22nd – December 21st
Work hard, play hard they say – but how easy is it to let go off the work load and head out for a night of carefree fun? Not so easy if you ask a Sag, but we want to change that, stat. We want you to plan ahead this month and organise your schedule around some of the things you’ve always longed to do, preferrably even on your own! Carve in some me time to re-boost your energy levels for upcoming goals. And if you’re in need of some inspiration on how to fill your days, wait up for the Aries on the 15th which is guaranteed to help you in that department.
December 22nd – January 19th
Letting go of grudges doesn’t come as easy to everyone, and in your case dear Capricorn you’re in for a treat. As we mentioned above, communication is *key* and the centre focus of April! So whatever’s still on your mind, whether it’s a team project gone awry or an argument you had with a friend which you can’t even remember what it was about, find time to catch up, find some closure and move on. There’s no better timing than the present, or Mercury direct with the new moon on the 15th if you still want to postpone for a few days!
January 20th – February 18th
It’s not enough that your resolutions list back in January was a mile long – it seems that you’re still overachieving which is a good thing, but also, how about spending some more down time and following one of your dreams for once instead of trying to please everyone else around you? Career-wise, the full moon on the 29th is bound to give you some positive news you’ve been waiting for, and if you’ve got some spare time in between, how about giving faith some thought? You never know where that will lead you and push you towards more communication.
February 19th – March 20th
Everything you’ve been working towards in the past months will finally show results! Though some things might take longer to achieve than others, you’ll feel a sense of relief with Mercury direct and the Aries new moon on April 15th, getting you rid of stress and any emotional baggage. You might hit a bump or two on the road but it’ll be a test for you to teach you an important lesson and see how far out of your comfort zone you’re willing to go.
