Welcome to April, pretties; the weather is getting warmer and more people are getting vaccinated. When chatty Mercury enters bold Aries on Saturday, April 3, we’re all feeling ready to ask for what we want. Out with people-pleasing and passive-aggressive comments, and in with assertively stating needs. Circle the new moon in Aries on Sunday, April 11, because this date marks new beginnings and fresh starts.
Lover planet Venus enters sensual Taurus on Wednesday, April 14, helping us all act more indulgently in love and sex. This means saying “yes” to dates, staying in to masturbate, and asking for what you want in bed.
Luxurious Taurus season officially begins on Monday, April 19. On this same day, messenger Mercury also enters the hardworking earth sign. Because Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and abundance rules Taurus, the next few weeks are all about pampering and self-care. The bull is also about loyalty, dependability, and hard work. Many of us will be seeing friends around now for the first time in a year. Don’t feel bad if you’ve been out of touch with loved ones; it’s just part of the effects of the pandemic. Just remember to tell them how much they mean to you when you do reconnect, as April wants us to communicate to others how we feel about them.
Warrior planet Mars enters caring Cancer on Friday, April 23, helping us stand up for ourselves in matters related to the home. This may mean getting out of a living situation that doesn’t work for you, or finally telling your partner that you want to move in with them. Use the bright full moon in Scorpio on Monday, April 26 to get it on, whether that means making love with a partner or luxuriating in a bath while reading your favorite book. Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, starts its yearly retrograde on Tuesday, April 26, where it will stay until Wednesday, October 6. During these months, we’re asked to drop bad habits and address our demons before the universe does it for us. But this retrograde happens each year, so don’t stress too much; just breathe through it and you’ll be okay. Eat some chocolate-covered strawberries to celebrate Taurus season and honor Venus if you can. See you next month!
