Welcome to April, Aries! Last month ended with you focusing on your own pleasure, sweet ram, whether it was during solo time with a sex toy or getting intimate with a partner. Now, April begins with communication planet Mercury entering your sign on Saturday, April 3. Because this transit takes place in your 1st House of Self, you'll be feeling motivated to speak your mind. Even if you're used to speaking up, this added boost from Mercury helps you ask for what you want efficiently.
A new moon in your sign on Sunday, April 11, helps you understand that sometimes, less is more. As the first sign of the zodiac (and a fire sign, at that), you like to get what you want. However, you don't always channel that energy effectively. You may have a tendency to take on battles that aren't yours to fight, which can distract you from what you really want, such as a stable relationship or a higher salary. The combination of Mercury entering your sign followed by the new moon helps you choose your words and causes wisely.
The stars see how hard you've been working and are ready to reward you.
On Wednesday, April 14, Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and abundance enters sensual Taurus and your 2nd House of Possessions. This could mean fantastic news when it comes to your finances. This may be a good time to utilize those effective communication skills you harnessed earlier in the month; don't be afraid to ask for a meeting to talk about a raise. Come with positive energy and remind your boss why you're so valuable.
Taurus season begins on Monday, April 19. That same day, messenger Mercury leaves your sign and also enters Taurus, joining Venus in your 2nd House of Possessions. This transit brings even more abundance when it comes to your career and love life. Following the trends above, the stars see how hard you've been working and are ready to reward you.
Your ruling planet, warrior Mars, enters sweet Cancer and your 4th House of Home on Friday, April 23. Mars is an aggressive, driven, and bold planet (just like you, Aries). Are you unhappy with your roommate situation? Do you want to move in with your partner, or perhaps move out and live on your own? This is a great time to remember that astrology can only do so much; you have to do the rest, and right now, your hard work can manifest the living situation of your dreams. And if you have had to make changes or sacrifices related to your living situation due to the effects COVID-19 has had on the economy, please know that you're not alone, and you are strong for doing so.
This full moon might just cause the breakup you've been too cautious to initiate.
An intense full moon in sexy Scorpio lights up the sky on Monday, April 26 in your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Rebirth. This will be a night of release and transformation. If you're happily single or in a healthy relationship, this may simply mean you'll have great sex or a cozy night in together. However, if you're in a relationship that may have gone past its due date, this full moon might just cause the breakup you've been too cautious to initiate.
One of Scorpio's ruling planets is Pluto, the god of the underworld, which goes retrograde on Tuesday, April 27. If you survived the full moon with a lackluster relationship intact, things may end during Pluto retrograde. This planet reveals our fears, bad habits, and shakes us free of them if we won't let go. Yes, this is difficult to go through, but the good news is that once the dust settles, you'll feel fresh and renewed. It's all about releasing bad habits; the healthy ones can stay. Make sure to pamper yourself, Aries, and see you in May!

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don't have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you're able to. If you can't, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
