The Sun is in your fellow fire sign Aries until the 20th and is joined by talk planet Mercury up until the 11th. This is good news for you as fire signs are your element, naturally spontaneous, lively and ready for action.
You may be aware of fire sign activity kicking in straightaway this month as there’s a New Moon in Aries on the 1st. A New Moon is an ideal time to set your intentions and start something new. Seek joy and pleasure in your life and practise gratitude for what you have.
You may be one of life’s leaders helping people find their way forward and focussing on the positive aspects of their lives. Your star sign is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of opportunity. If you’re a typical Sagittarius, you’re a philosopher and you are often striving to find meaning and purpose in the bigger picture.
Aries rules children & pregnancy in your horoscope, also creative projects and entertainment. Aries is a star sign that likes to start things, to be impulsive and take risks. You may find new ways of enjoying yourself and expressing your skills & talents during the first few weeks of the month. It’s a good time to focus on your children if you’re a parent and find new ways to help keep them motivated and strong.
Aries also rules romance in your horoscope. If you’re looking for love, it would be a great month to reach out to other people. A spontaneous conversation or meeting during the first weekend could be magical. There may be a moment of synchronicity or a coincidence that puts someone new in your path.
Plus, the Full Moon on the 16th falls in the relationship sign Libra, a time when emotions are heightened and you may want to celebrate life, love and friendship. Money could be an issue on or around the Full Moon, perhaps linked to a child or lover, but don’t let that stop you enjoying yourself.
If you’re married or in a long-term partnership, keep love as varied and light as you can. Be one another’s best friend and do whatever you can to encourage romance to flourish.
Miracles & Memories
Your ruling planet Jupiter is involved in the major planetary aspect not only of April but all year. On the 12th, there’s a once-in-a-lifetime conjunction between Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces, the star sign at the base of your horoscope.
This immediately pulls you back towards your roots whether your memories are strong or there’s a special reason why you’re reconnected with your past.
Pisces rules your home and family and Jupiter expands what it touches. There may be news of a birth, a property move or you may decide to open your home to refugees, whatever works for your personally. The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction feels charitable and in Pisces, it’s a flood of compassion, kindness and caring.
The planet of love and relating Venus is also in Pisces from the 5th onwards. At the end of the month, Venus teams up with Neptune on the 27th & your planet Jupiter on the 30th reawakening the Jupiter-Neptune themes.
You may feel more in flow with life during this period and be willing to surrender or sacrifice yourself in some way because of your love. This isn’t the time to hold on tight to the past or to try and dictate terms. Pisces’ energy is about letting go and releasing what’s no longer needed. It may be a deeply emotional time for you.
Mars & Saturn
Action planet Mars joins Venus in Pisces on the 15th confirming the importance of home and family this month. Before it moves into Pisces, however, Mars is completing its journey through Aquarius.
Mars in Aquarius is the activist, the accelerator, getting things moving online, bringing people together. Aquarius rules your communication sector. You could be playing your role here, taking a project online or joining in with a community venture.
On the 5th, however, Mars is under Saturn’s rule when these two planets make a powerful conjunction. This could feel heavy and you may feel low or experience a disappointment. Try not to let your mind get the better of you and keep seeking new possibilities.
You may dislike being told what you can and can’t do and this may not be easy for you. Saturn may represent the authorities or a challenging boss.
However, this is a strong combination for commitment and discipline. You could choose to stand firm and not give up the fight, whatever this means for you personally.
Earth Sign Taurus
After the 20th, the Sun enters Taurus. Communication planet Mercury is in Taurus too, from the 11th to the 29th. Taurus is a steady earth sign linked to work and routine in your horoscope, also your health and well-being.
Yet, these key areas may not be so stable because of the planet of change Uranus also here. This month, Uranus is active on the 18th and is pulled into the Solar Eclipse on the 30th.
The Solar Eclipse is the second New Moon of the month, also called a Black Moon. It’s part of the eclipse cycle that began in November 2021 and continues until October 2023. It cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac linked to your routine and lifestyle, time management, solitude, retreat and inner work.
Eclipses are of a similar nature to Uranus and often coincide with the unexpected. This whole combination has the theme of reinvention and a chance to do things differently. The ruling planet of the Taurus eclipse is Venus and is aligned with your ruling planet Jupiter on the 30th, the same day as the eclipse.
Therefore, this could coincide with the wheel of fortune turning in your direction. It links into the Jupiter-Neptune miracles that will be evident for some people during this whole period.
The once-in-a-lifetime Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces is exact on April 12th. We’ve been surfing its waves since February and there’s a way to go yet. It peaks this month, continues into May & there may be a Jupiter-Neptune revival in November/December.
Jupiter-Neptune themes conjure up big dreams, a cultural renaissance, a spiritual awakening, miracles, revelation, awe & wonder. In Pisces, it’s a flood of emotion, a wave of imagination, a rush of compassion & interconnectedness. It’s also wise to avoid fake news, be wary of scams, choose your faith carefully & lose yourself in a good way.
The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction falls in your 4th house ruling your home and family, your past and where you come from. This would be an ideal time to open your home to refugees, expand where you live, make a journey into your past, celebrate with your family or find your clan. Forgiveness is a key theme of this powerful conjunction that includes your ruling planet Jupiter. Step into a protective role within your community.
