April 2023 will be an energetic and eventful month, as per the fateful script of astrology. The full moon on April 5 in Libra will diffuse the air with a bigger focus on love and relationships, culminating in new and dynamic developments when the sun and Jupiter will conjoin in Aries on April 11.
What's more, the solar eclipse in Aries will bring passion and initiative to all zodiac signs. Let this April be a joyous start to a new season filled with good company, renewed energy to match the ushering in of springtime, and blooming new passions and connections for all.
Aries: March 21 to April 19
Welcome back to your month Aries! April is set to be a month of personal growth and development for our excitable rams, as the full moon in Libra on April 5 has set you a precedent to carve out time for your connections and relationships before diving into your own adventures.
The solar eclipse to come will spark new interests and passions that lead to fulfilment, so embrace the new creativity and excitement coming your way. Once April 20 shows the sun shifting into Taurus, it’s time to divert your attention to auditing your wealth and personal resources. Little tweaks may be required, but trust this will help set you up for the long run! Get clear on what you want and welcome the version of yourself that’s a whole year wiser.
Taurus: April 20 to May 20
Are you paying attention to your subconscious? This month's mission for our lovely Taurus is to do exactly that. Pick up on which thoughts make you uncomfortable, and what things you’ve left unsaid that’s dying to get out. Since the Sun and Jupiter conjoined in your 12th house on April 11, this month is a good time to turn your focus inwards, to develop your mental health habits behind closed doors. Now is the time to clear out negative self-talk and replace them with self-affirmations that align with your aspirations.
The first solar eclipse of the year strikes on your first day of Taurus 2023 season on April 20, potentially bringing out your fiery side thanks to the residual Aries energy that’s making you less patient and more spontaneous. While it might go against your usual chilled out Venusian energy and make you feel a little restless compared to usual, there’s no pressure to go out of your way to leave the comforts of staying in, nor vice versa.
Gemini: May 21 to June 20
Reflecting the rebirths of springtime, April is a month of radical change for Gemini, and it's time to embrace it. For Geminis, this month focuses on finances, security, and self-esteem as Mars moves into Cancer. Instead of relying on practical steps to increase wealth, Geminis are encouraged to listen to their inner thoughts to lead them to find drive or passion.
With the solar eclipse on April 20 coinciding with the start of the Taurus season, it’s time to re-shift the focus to friendships and spirituality. It's a time to cultivate relationships that bring chill vibes and effortless connections. As Mercury retrograde starts on April 21, you'll be glad you weeded out any negative energy, as it requires time to recharge.
Cancer: June 21 to July 22
Mars, the planet of action, spends the entire month of April in your watery sign Cancer. Although taking a breather for self-care and wellness practices is a good call for the month, planet of luck Jupiter is doing its last rounds in Aries, making you feel like there’s unfinished business to tend to. The challenge here is finding balance between the two.
The solar eclipse in Aries on April 20 will bring new and dynamic energy into your work sector, motivating you to take the lead on a new task, though be prepared to be busy should you take up this challenge. As the sun moves into the stable and solid sign of Taurus, things will begin to quiet down, but you may need to make some adjustments as Mercury stations retrograde on April 21. This retrograde period will prompt you to re-evaluate your friendships and working collaborations. Make sure they align with your long-term goals.
Leo: July 23 to Aug. 22
April is a fiery month of creative action and pursuits of the passions for mighty Leo. Especially when Venus entered Gemini on April 11, your friendships and social networks have been particularly blessed. This is great news because if you have an event or passion project in the works, this is an opportunity to call for supporters.
On April 20, Taurus season begins just hours after the first solar eclipse. The new moon of the year takes form in the sign of Aries. You may feel a sense of adventurousness and restlessness under the Aries solar eclipse, so it's best to stay physically and mentally active. Go out and find a thrill-filled activity to enjoy with your friends during these exciting times!
Virgo: Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
Get ready for a roller-coaster of a month, Virgos, but don’t worry, you’ve got this! As Venus enters Gemini on April 11, get ready to unleash your fun-loving and social side. This transit, combined with the energetic Aries season in the air, will make you want to spend some good times with your favourite people and party to lengths you didn’t expect yourself to be capable of.
Just as Taurus season starts on April 20, your planetary ruler Mercury begins its three-week retrograde in the master of the season Taurus. While the first half of April may have been about taking risks and going out of your comfort zone, the final 10 days will be about reflecting on key lessons learned from those experiences and recalibrating.
Libra: Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
Exciting things are coming your way, Libra. Embrace the changes and trust your instincts in drawing out your journey ahead. As the full moon appears in your sign on April 6, its deep emotional influence will be felt throughout the month. Then, with Mars in Cancer, you’ll be taking a moment to reflect on what you truly want from your career.
Although you may be an intellectual air sign, the watery and lunar influences will encourage you to take an emotionally-led decision. Listen to your gut to find out if something lights you up or drains you.
April’s solar eclipse and the beginning of Taurus season on April 20 encourages you to not only hold your loved ones closer, but also communicate your deeper needs by being transparent and clear about your desires. Then, Mercury’s retrograde in Taurus is due for April 21, which means you'll have plenty of time to sort through the intense emotions that may come up during the discussions.
Scorpio: October 23 to November 21
Good news, Scorpios. Your planetary ruler Pluto is moving into a supportive role on your chart, which means it's time to accept what to come with blessings in full. This can be a powerful time of growth and expansion for you, especially with Mars in Cancer lighting up your interest in ideas and curiosities.
Venus moving into Gemini will also encourage you to take a step back to seek financial advice that can help keep these blessings rolling. The solar eclipse in Aries, followed by the start of Taurus season, may also shift your priorities — particularly when it comes to your creativity. If you've been creating work to benefit others more than yourself, this is your wake-up call to redirect your energy towards exploring your own pursuits, especially ones from your inspirations.
Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21
As a mutable fire sign, Sagittarius tends to embrace change, and Mercury's presence in Taurus at the beginning of the month encourages you to turn your attention towards inner transformation. The full moon in Libra that came on April 6 brings a chance to plant new ideas or explore new ways of thinking, while the movement of Mars in Cancer puts a steady break if you accelerate hard and miss the enjoyment of the journey itself!
The Aries new moon solar eclipse on April 20 will further add novelty into your connections, but don’t be swept away entirely by vibes. It’s about quality over quantity when it comes to closeness, after all. When Mercury begins its retrograde on April 21, coinciding with the early days of Taurus season, take a little check-in with yourself to get ready for the seasonal reset to come.
Capricorn: December 22 to January 19
Capricorns may need to get ready to face some bumps on the road this month, as the planet of transformation, Pluto, is shifting into the air sign of Aquarius. With both Capricorn and Aquarius being ruled by Saturn, it is recommended to tune in to your more sensitive side to better equip yourself for the challenges.
On top of that, the upcoming Aries new moon solar eclipse on April 20 will kick off a new beginning in your work — with a catch. Right after, on April 21, planet of communication Mercury begins its retrograde in Taurus. This means new projects should be tested and reviewed thoroughly to avoid any errors.
Aquarius: January 20 to February 18
Pluto, the planet of transformation, has moved into your sign, Aquarius! Since Aquarians are pretty malleable to adapt to Pluto's influence, this is the opportunity for you to explore your abilities to aspire and manifest.
The good news is that Venus moving into the sign of Gemini on April 11 has helped lighten things up for Aquarians. Connecting with friends and others will feel more pleasant and fulfilling, and there will even be the chance to meet new people who just get you and all your idiosyncrasies. Taurus season and Mercury's retrograde in Taurus starting on April 21 is a particularly great time to be grateful for all these relationships. So, take a little time to say a word of thanks or show your appreciation.
Pisces: February 19 to March 20
Pisces may be known to wear their hearts on their sleeves, but this season is one that’s ripe for you to communicate your needs and values effectively. On April 11, Venus enters Gemini, promoting flexibility and open-mindedness in your intimate connections, especially with your family. Following this movement, you'll have the chance to heal past wounds and discuss things that might have been avoided.
Starting April 20, the Aries new moon solar eclipse will catalyse a time of wealth-building and abundance consciousness in your life. This is the perfect time to step into your power and plan your finances for the road ahead. Though be careful to avoid initiating anything new relating to money during Mercury retrograde, which begins on April 21 and lasts until May 14.
