Okay, Aries, this is your season! Happiest birthday! And this month is incredible for you, as pleasure, romance, fun, and lightness of being are all highlighted. Yay! Your personal magnetism is extremely strong, so utilize your powers for good, especially when it comes to enjoying the little things life brings you this month. Celebration and fun are also exemplified here, so do something special for your birthday month. (Notice how I say month, not day, dear Aries.) Enjoy!
Hi, Taurus! This is your month to make your health and routine top billing on your laundry list of life! Balancing yoga, exercise, and healthy lifestyle choices are extremely important for you this month. You may feel burned out if you are not taking time to balance all that life demands of you. Take initiative, and take amazing care of your total being, not just your workhorse side!
Hi, Gemini! This month, relationships of all kinds are highlighted for you. How do you feel in your closest relationships? How is the dynamic between you and your partner? You and your boss? A few more questions: Do you feel healthfully expressed? Do you feel you or your partner could be giving more? April marks a time of balance for you, Gemini, especially with one of the most important facets of your life: your relationships! Check in, and make adjustments accordingly. Meditate if the answers don’t seem clear.
Hello, Cancer. Happy April! This is a power month for you, as the deeper sides of life are highlighted. Exploration of your self and your sensuality are an important this month. Feel like you haven’t had much time for yourself? Create some romance in your life, whether it’s alone or with a trusted partner. You often give much to others; this is a time to give a bit more to yourself. Enjoy, Cancer!
Hi, Leo! April is a time of learning, growth, and mental expansion for you. Have you been out of the country lately? Is it time to go on an adventure of some kind? Even taking a new dance class or learning to play an instrument can be highlighted this month. Do something that excites you and takes you outside of your comfort zone. You could also be asked to play the role of the diplomat in some part of your life this month, Leo. Play the neutral card, whether with yourself or with people close to you. Have a great month, Leo!
Hi, Virgo! Your career and reputation at large are on fire this month! You have the planet Jupiter gracing your sign this year; Jupiter is responsible for luck, blessings, and expansion in your life. With your focus on work and how you bring your unique offerings into the world this month, you get a little extra boost of good vibes with Jupiter in your sign. Consider this: Is my work helping or hindering? How can I positively affect those around me? Have an amazing month, Virgo!
Hi, Libra! Your focus is around friendships and life vision this month. Are your closest people your most supportive? Do your friends support your dreams and ideas? April marks a time for spring-cleaning anyone who diminishes your light. This can definitely speak to people in the workplace as well. And if you’re feeling inspired, create a vision board of things that inspire you, your dreams, and what you’d like to experience in the future. Enjoy, Libra!
Hi, Scorpio! April marks a powerful month for you and highlights the more mystical side of your life. Meditation, making sure to get extra sleep, releasing the past, and forgiveness are all themes typical of your transit this month. If you feel called to receive a tarot reading, do it. Trusting your intuition is also highlighted this month, Scorpio, but that usually isn’t a big problem for you. Enjoy this time, and let it be a bit quieter, if need be. Happy April!
Hi, Sagittarius! This is your month to really step out and be authentically you in every way. You may feel called to reinvent yourself in some way: your look, your hairstyle, your wardrobe. Inertia behind personal endeavors and innovation are also highlighted for you this month. Do you have a project or something you’re passionate about that deserves some of your attention this month? Check in with yourself, step out, and be boldly authentic this month, Sagittarius. Have fun!
Hi, Capricorn! April is a money-centered transit for you, and I know you are someone who likes to feel secure when it comes to your finances. How do you feel about your savings? Are you making as much as you’d like to be making? If you don’t save, try putting away 5% to 10% of your earnings this month; put it into an account you can’t touch, and make sure to give it a “why.” Your “why” can be new Louboutins, saving for a house, or taking an extended Balinese vacation. Happy saving, and have a great month!
Hi, Aquarius! Hopefully after a bit of a restful March, you are ready for what will be a busy, amazing April! April marks a time of communication, chattiness, close friendships, and short-distance trips. It’s also an exquisite time to express yourself, whether through conversations or creativity. Take advantage of the extensive energy available to you this month: Make plans for time with good friends, or head out of town for a quick getaway to get inspired. Enjoy, Aquarius!
Hello, Pisces! April is a month of nesting, resting, and slowing down a bit for you. I know life is busy, and it can be hard to take it easy, but I promise you will feel rejuvenated for the busy times ahead if you can take a little extra time for yourself this month. Self-nurturance is the name of the game: Head to the spa, Netflix a little more than usual, and make sure you are getting plenty of extra rest. The time spent at home is well-deserved, Pisces. Enjoy!
