Welcome to April, Gemini! March reminded you of the importance of friends and loved ones. When your ruling planet, messenger Mercury, enters Aries and your 11th House of Friends on Saturday, April 3, the theme of intimacy and closeness continues. You’re the social butterfly of the zodiac and the life of the party, but the pandemic has changed how you engage with others. Over the past year, you’ve traded flings and spontaneous hangouts for more intimate conversations and catch-ups, and your relationships have deepened. Now, this transit helps you tell your friends how much they mean to you.
A fresh new moon on Sunday, April 11, also in Aries and your 11th House of Friends presses the reset button on missed opportunities. Despite your charismatic exterior, you can be a bundle of nerves inside. Sometimes, you may worry about missing out on things or feel worried that people have forgotten about you. Try not to forget that it’s been a hard year, and that everyone is feeling a bit isolated — it’s not just you. Still, you can use this new moon to your advantage to check in with friends and remind them how much they mean to you.
Lover planet Venus enters loyal Taurus and your 12th House of the Unconscious on Wednesday, April 14. As a curious air sign, you tend to go where the wind takes you, Gemini. You may sometimes get distracted and brush deep feelings under the rug when something new comes along. This transit asks you to dive deep. Meditate, journal, or work with a therapist to get in tune with what you truly need in your relationships.
Luxurious Taurus season begins on Monday, April 19. This sensual sign loves delicious food, drink, and self-care, so prepare for pampering. On this same date, your ruling planet, Mercury also enters Taurus and your 12th House of the Unconscious. Now that you’ve had a few days to process your emotions, you may just feel brave enough to express them.
Warrior planet Mars enters caring Cancer and your 3rd House of Communication on Friday, April 23. Mars is divine masculine energy (which we all have regardless of our gender) and represents how we get it on. Let’s be real, darling Gemini; it’s likely that you usually like to keep things light and casual. But now, all you want to do is feed someone grapes and write them love poems. Do it! It’ll be well-received. After all, you’re an excellent writer.
