So, taking a cue from Taurus, use this month as an opportunity to indulge in life's finer things. Translation? Binge-watch your favorite feel-good shows. Send yourself flowers. Set up at an at-home spa day, featuring face masks and mani-pedis with spring-themed nail polish. Essentially, don't forget to treat yourself.

Taurus, your birthday month brings an opportunity to let your loved ones know just how much they mean to you. When Mercury connects with your sun on April 19, you may experience a sudden surge of energy regarding matters of the heart. Combine that with the Full Moon on April 26, which creates intensity in relationships, and you're in for some deep conversations. As a result of all this intimacy, you may test others' boundaries on May 3 and 8 when Mercury and Venus enter Gemini, but you’ll be able to charm your way out of trouble and start fresh during May 11’s New Moon.
Gemini, you're the chatterbox of the zodiac—and we love you for it. But this month, you’ll start to weigh whether you really want to express every last thought, especially when Mercury enters Taurus on April 19. Be discerning about what you say, because your words matter. This advice will resonate when work drama flares up in late April. Pluto retrograde, commencing on April 27, will inspire you to deal with the drama discreetly. Jupiter’s movement into Pisces on May 13 is an optimal time to start fresh with your coworkers.
Breathe in, breathe out. You're in for an emotional rollercoaster this month, especially in your social sphere. Use the start of Taurus season as a chance to stand your ground when communicating with your friends over any lingering areas of tension. When Mars aligns with your Sun a few days later on April 23, you may get defensive about your friends' response. Use the Full Moon on the 26 as a chance to drop the drama. All will hopefully be forgiven (by you and your pals) by the time the New Moon in Taurus rolls around on May 11. When we said rollercoaster, we meant it.
Leo loves the spotlight. But this Taurus season, you’ll be encouraged to put others’ needs before your own. Mercury and Venus's shifts into Gemini in May urge you to act with a humanitarian, community-centric mindset. Volunteer with a local organization or donate to charity.

When Jupiter enters Pisces on May 13, you will find that people want to support the causes you feel passionately about.
Changes at work might be making you question the direction of your career. Before making any major decisions, reflect on your goals with a trusted friend or confidant.

Then, lucky Jupiter’s transit into Pisces on May 13 will ideally further advancement—and with it, a sense of purpose and direction.
Think of this month as the first step of your next evolution. The question is: Who do you want to become? Use Pluto retrograde, and its change-making powers, as a time to decide. Get your exercises in introspection out on vision boards or journals. Then, consider meditating during the New Moon on May 11 to get the ball rolling in your personal transformation.
Look long and hard at the relationships in your life, Scorpio. Are you investing too much energy in them? Or perhaps, not enough? Mars’s ingress into Cancer on April 23 offers a moment to pause and reflect on your closest ties. You’ll decide who’s worthy of your love in mid-May, when Mercury and Venus glide into Gemini. Use the burst of energy accompanying May 11's New Moon to make changes—which may include ridding yourself of relationships that aren’t serving your highest and truest purpose. Those who remain in your good graces will likely prove to be lifelong friends.
No, you don't have a stomachache, Sagittarius—those are butterflies in your stomach. Love just may be in the cards for you this month.

As long as you’re honest about your intentions during the New Moon in Taurus on May 11, you can let go of the constrictive mindset that's holding you back. A warning: To embark on a new phase of your relationship, you're going to have to drop grudges and let former heartbreaks go, especially when Jupiter enters Pisces on May 13.
You don't just miss your friends, Capricorn—you need to connect with them. Mars’s leap into Cancer on April 23 is the ideal time to catch up with loved ones.

Then, when the New Moon arises, you'll be able to set the intention for a less isolating month ahead.
Time to get creative. This month, Aquarius, try processing your experiences and emotions through art. Give your subconscious a chance to express itself in surprising ways.
