Welcome to April, Aquarius! Last month asked you to stop playing games and be more honest with your crushes or partners. On Saturday, April 3, communication planet Mercury enters courageous Aries and your 3rd House of Communication. You are quite charismatic, and as a result, tend to attract a great number of lovers and friends. However, your tendency to overthink things combined with your aloof nature can sometimes confuse others. Continuing the theme from last month, this transit encourages direct and honest communication. If you’re waiting for a good day to tell someone how you really feel, circle the new moon in Aries on Sunday, April 11 on your calendar. New moons are times for fresh starts and new beginnings.
Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and abundance, enters sensual Taurus and your 4th House of Home and Family on Wednesday, April 14. This is a perfect time for you to begin a spring cleaning ritual, which could have near-magical effects on your spirit. It’s the perfect time to throw out unneeded remnants of the past year so you can beautify your home for the present and future. Decluttering is especially important after such a stressful year. Dust, sort through all those things you’ve been holding onto for years, and add a few low-maintenance plants here and there to beautify your space.
Luxurious Taurus season begins on Monday, April 19, encouraging you to relax and breathe more deeply. On this same date, messenger Mercury also enters Taurus and your 4th House of Home and Family. Mercury is a social chatterbox of a planet. If you can do so safely, celebrate your newly refreshed home by inviting over some loved ones. As the vaccines are rolling out, some of us are getting the opportunity to spend time with loved ones we haven’t seen in a while, and it’s important to cherish every moment.
Warrior planet Mars enters caring Cancer and your 6th House of Health on Friday, April 23. This transit asks you to advocate for your health, both mental and physical. This may mean working figuring out when you’re eligible for the vaccine or standing up for yourself in a relationship. Taking care of ourselves is not always easy, but this energy from Mars helps you fight for yourself.
A full moon in Scorpio and your 10th House of Social Status on Monday, April 26 shines a light on something you’ve been putting effort into. Expect your hard work to finally be acknowledged or a new opportunity to come your way. Then, the month closes out as Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, starts its annual retrograde on Tuesday, April 27. This retrograde is all about releasing what no longer serves us to usher in healthier behavior, so be willing to drop bad habits. Stay safe and see you in May!
