Your April Horoscope Is Here
Aries season presents us with a whole new astrological cycle, perfect for setting powerfully bold intentions and beginning another chapter. And as we move into April and the second half of the Ram's moment in the sun, the sign's fiery, pioneering spirit can come in handy — not only for making commendable strides on existing projects but also embracing change that's pretty much inevitable thanks to eclipse season falling toward the end of the month.
Romance and relationships will also be a key focus of the month, thanks to the planets of love and sex, Venus and Mars, moving into dreamy, rose-colored glasses-wearing water sign Pisces, and several other celestial bodies occupying sensual earth sign Taurus. Enhanced creativity, spirituality, and personal growth are also within reach, thanks to a meet-up between lucky Jupiter and mystical Neptune in Pisces that hasn't occurred since 1856. Consider this your call to tune into — and actually trust — your heart, which could serve you well over the next 13 years. (The next time Jupiter and Neptune meet will be in March 2035 in Aries.)
All in all, this is a month to revel in your imagination and remain open-minded, particularly in terms of your love life, because once the first of the 2022's eclipses hit, you'll do best to expect the unexpected.
(Be sure to read your rising sign as well as your sun.)
You've been enjoying a burst of confidence and desire to command the spotlight as a result of the vitality-bringing sun moving through your sign for the last couple of weeks, and until April 19, the sky is pretty much the limit in terms of how high you want to set the bar for yourself. Especially around April 1, when the new moon falls in your sign, you'll be fired up to pinpoint an ambitious goal, perhaps related to your professional path or overall well-being. Considering your spiritual wellness would be wise now, especially, thanks to relationship-oriented Venus and your ruler, go-getter Mars, moving through your spirituality zone from April 5 to May 2 and April 14 to May 24 respectively.
Finances will also be front of mind, particularly once the planet of communication and sun are in your money zone. Messenger Mercury will be there from April 10 to 29, while the sun's trip lasts from April 19 to May 20. Whether you've been wanting to research a potential side hustle, pick your mentor's brain about a possible new direction to take your business in, or brush up your resume to send it out to potential employers, this can be a super-productive information-gathering moment. You'll also be laying good groundwork for the first solar eclipse of the year, which falls on April 30 in your money zone. You could find yourself reflecting on how you're being valued in your work, and if it's potentially time to change course to feel more rewarded.
Let's be real, Taurus — dynamic Aries season might be energizing for some signs, but it could feel downright suh-leepy for you, because the sun is moving through your spirituality zone, bringing your focus inward. You could find you've been having extra productive therapy sessions or vivid dreams lately. Around the 1st of the month, the new moon in this zone can be a wonderful opportunity to channel what you're learning about deep-rooted emotions into forging a new path. Soon thereafter, the timing will be right for you to share how you feel, too, because social Venus, your ruler, will be in your friendship zone from April 5 to May 2, making it easier to connect with your nearest and dearest and messenger Mercury is in your sign from April 10 to 29, amplifying confidence in your thoughts and words.
And while you're generally a creature of habit who would prefer to stick to self-care approaches you've found to be tried-and-true, a full moon in your daily routine zone on the 16th, ruled by Venus, could inspire you to look at your current regimen with a more discriminating eye. It could be that you're not getting the same results you used to, and it's time to consider a new way of showing up for yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally. Any growth around being more flexible and welcoming a new perspective will serve you well toward the end of the month when the first solar eclipse of the year hits — in your sign, no less — on April 30. Massive change could be around the corner, affecting how you're presenting yourself and your nearest and dearest relationships. But you have the power to take it in stride.
With the sun moving through your friendship zone until April 19, your social life has likely been exactly the way you like it: super-busy and potentially a complete whirlwind. And around April 1, when an excitable new moon falls there, you'll get a green light to brainstorm or initiate a new group undertaking. Maybe you're pumped to plan a summer vacation with friends or are thinking of putting your head together with colleagues to come up with a business proposal. Whatever you're itching to make happen, now can be an opportunity to go big — and see covetable results in six months.
Don't be too surprised if you do start to feel a little less social beginning on April 10, because your ruler, messenger Mercury, will be in your spirituality zone, which is the most private, low-key sector of life. So, more self-reflection and rest might feel particularly restorative as we move into Taurus season. Know that it's all for the greater good of prepping yourself energetically for your own season next month. This month isn't all about snooziness by any means, though. A particularly sweet highlight: Around April 16, the full moon lights up your romance zone, which can set your self-expressive nature ablaze and make it easier for you to share — and fulfill — your desires.
No doubt making your mark has very much been on your mind while the sun has been moving through your career zone. Whether you've been tinkering away on your resume or an exciting proposal or schmoozing with old colleagues about potential opportunities, the April 1 new moon could be a game-changing moment that catalyzes a long-held, big picture professional dream. Working with others to get where you want to go is a must, particularly as messenger Mercury shifts into your friendship and networking zone on April 10 — where it'll remain until the 29th — and the sun is there from April 19 to May 20. And yet, even though you could be seeing momentum building, you're itching for more.
Your imagination could run wild on April 12, because Jupiter, the planet of abundance, and Neptune, the planet of spirituality, pair up in your adventure zone, kicking off a new cycle that will last until 2035.

And around April 16 when the full moon is in your home zone, you could be preoccupied with striving to find a better balance between what you need out of your private and public lives. Listening to your inner voice is key.
As the month kicks off, the vitality-strengthening sun, your ruler, has been in your adventure zone for the last couple of weeks, urging you to move away from anything mundane and too comfortable. You want to stretch your wings, learn, grow, maybe even be stunned by an eye-opening experience, whether related to travel or education. Around April 1, the new moon there could inspire you to commit to a whole new game plan, whether that's signing up for an online course or getting all your ducks in a row to book that trip you've been dreaming about for way too long. You'll find quite a bit of satisfaction from bonding on an even deeper level with your S.O. or someone special, thanks to relationship-oriented Venus moving through your emotional and sexual intimacy zone from April 5 to May 2.
In fact, on April 12, when lucky Jupiter and mystical Neptune pair up there, know you're stepping into an exciting 13-year cycle in which your closest bonds can be a source of incredible spiritual inspiration.
