Welcome to April! This month kicks off with you feeling competitive, brazen, passionate and ready for a debate. After all, messenger Mercury enters Aries on April 3, tapping into the fullest extent of your mind and the raw power of your unfiltered thoughts. Let this inspire you to be more courageous in terms of how you communicate, but take care not to be too brusque, as you might hurt someone’s feelings. That said, April’s emotional intensity will really kick in come April 9, when Mars—planet of conflict—squares off with sensitive and scatterbrained Neptune. This might leave you feeling distracted, confused and more interested in your dreams than real life. Babe, your April 2021 horoscope has only just begun and it’s already wilder than a meteor shower!
Aries season will reach new depths by April 11. This is when the new moon in Aries takes place, which is the perfect opportunity to pour your whole entire heart into your goals. Aries grabs life by the horns and refuses to let go! Allow yourself to be consumed by the overwhelming desire to commit to self-improvement and win the game. But, be careful of becoming a little too obsessed with being the best—on April 16, the sun will square off with domineering Pluto, paving the way for overinflated egos and ruthless behavior.
Luckily, the grounded energy of Taurus will have already begun seeping through the cosmos by April 14. This is when Venus—planet of love—enters Taurus, its home zodiac sign. This launches an incredibly sensual, luxurious and romantic period of time that will enrich your love life and your social life with gorgeous vibrations. When Mercury enters Taurus on April 19, it will slow down your thought process and encourage you to think carefully and critically before making any decisions. Embrace patience as you get the job done! While Aries was the hare, Taurus is the tortoise. These careful, laid-back vibrations will all settle into place by April 19, when Taurus season begins.
However, your relationships will experience a shake-up come April 22, when the Venus-Uranus conjunction takes place. Relationships may suddenly end or begin as you meet new and exciting people. You’ll likely feel a deep and primal energetic shift by April 23. Mars will enters protective, emotional and passive-aggressive Cancer, slowing things down even further. Cancer doesn’t move straight forward; instead, it moves sideways. This may leave you feeling hesitant to jump into anything or extra-sensitive to outer stimuli.
The month ends with a ~dramatic~ showdown. On April 26, the Full Moon in Scorpio will rain intensity and shockwaves throughout the cosmos, bringing incredibly deep-seated truths to the surface. And when Pluto stations retrograde on April 27, it will initiate a slow and spiritual period of inner transformation. Embrace the process of accepting new beginnings!
