Your April 2022 Horoscope Is Here — It’s Time To Go After What You Want

·9-min read

Are you ready to rock? April 1 starts the month off with a bang, when the new moon in Aries lends a fresh start to our spring vibe. A few days later, on the fifth, lovelorn Venus swims into tender Pisces and heightens our romantic hearts. Talkative Mercury enters reserved Taurus on April 10, making us slow down on the chatter and simplify our minds. Lucky Jupiter and visionary Neptune connect in fluid Pisces for the first time since 1856, inspiring us to take a leap of faith and grow our dreams. Action planet Mars dives into Pisces on April 14, pushing us to chase out desires.

April 16’s transformational full moon in Libra gets us out of our personal and relationship comfort zones with the hopes of evolving dynamics. The Sun glides into Taurus on April 19, asking us to embrace kindness, compassion, and creativity. It’s a time for everyone to slow down and smell the beautiful spring roses.

Venus and Neptune in Pisces collide on the 27th, making our hearts unconditional and affectionate. Mercury glides into its home sign, Gemini, on April 29, allowing us to express ourselves clearly and concisely. Pluto retrograde in Capricorn commences on the 29th, inspiring us to change our energy and become greater beings. April 30’s solar eclipse in Taurus occurs the same day Venus and Jupiter link up in Pisces, expanding our passions, relationships, and capacity to love.

<strong><h2>Taurus</h2></strong><br><br>When your planetary ruler, Venus, enters Pisces on the 5th, you’ll reemerge back on the social scene. This means that you’ll rendezvous with friends who you haven’t seen in a while. Although it will be nice to connect with your pals, you may feel as though you’ve outgrown some of them. By the time the Jupiter and Neptune alignment comes around on the 12th, you’ll want to cut the cord on a few acquaintances. Doing so will change up the energy in your peer group during your solar return, which begins on April 19 and help you avoid drama with these associates during the solar eclipse on April 27 (the time Venus and Neptune connect) and April 30 (the same day Venus and Jupiter align).<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Gemini</h2></strong><br><br>No one knows better than you, Gemini, that words can maim. This rings true, especially as your planetary ruler, Mercury, moonwalks in the sky through the sign of Taurus on April 10 to 29, causing your temper to flare up due to the fact that no one’s giving enough attention to you. Try listening before you speak and triple check all communications before you react to make sure you are understanding and giving correct info in order to resolve issues. When Mercury starts its annual alignment on your Sun, you’ll receive a big reveal, as the clandestine activities and scandals of others come to light starting on the 29th. Prepare yourself for more tea to spill on April 30, when the solar eclipse tells all.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Cancer</h2></strong><br><br>It may be time for you to spruce up your LinkedIn account, update your website, and revamp your social media. April 1’s new moon is putting you in the professional limelight and focusing all the attention on you. You’ll receive fortunate and positive news regarding the current state of your career at this time, which means that you may feel called to work overtime during April 16’s full moon. All the effort, energy, and hours that you’re putting into work will absolutely pay off by the time the Sun glides into Taurus on April 19. By updating your resume at the beginning of the month, as well as working hard, you could get a referral from a colleague in your company for a better position.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Leo</h2></strong><br><br>You will find the majority of April to be cosmically chill — that is until the Sun moves into Taurus on April 19. This cosmic shift will make your work life more exciting, as you will have to boss up and give the professional scope more attention due to a promotion or drama at the office. The good news is that you will be walking on professional sunshine when the solar eclipse in the sign of the Bull occurs on April 30. You’ll have plenty of opportunities and possibilities to take on the types of work and clients that motivate you to thrive at this time. You will be so busy that others will be jealous of your success. On your mark, get set, GO!<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Virgo</h2></strong><br><br>The ultimate way to transform relationships is to be realistic with their limitations. No one is perfect — not even you — which is why it’s important to understand that everyone has their flaws. When the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction occurs on the 12th, followed by the Venus-Neptune alignment on the 27th, you’ll put blinders on and be in a fantasy. If you choose to use this energy as a way to enhance the partnership and to resolve long-standing issues, then it’s a transcendent time. However, if you don’t, then the image and dream you’ve created in your mind will come crashing down hard on April 29. Choose to heal and evolve to make it tangible, instead of splashing around in the pipe dream that’s not real.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Libra</h2></strong><br><br>April 1’s new moon is shaking up the relationship sector of your chart by giving you a chance to have a heart-to-heart conversation with your S.O./crush. The Venusian shift on April 5 into Pisces won’t help in understanding their needs, but will keep you under their spell. By the time April 16’s full moon commences, you’ll want to take action around their romantic and commitment concerns by promising to make necessary changes. Once that happens, you’ll be able to ride the cosmic waves of love on the 27th and 30th. The bond between you both will be stronger than ever — mostly because Pluto’s retrograde, which commences on April 29, is urging you to drop the power struggle and change the dynamic in your relationship.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Scorpio</h2></strong><br><br>The desire to create something beautiful and meaningful for the world to experience has been on the back burner of your dreams for a while. The month ahead allows you to embrace these ideas and passions by bringing them to reality. When Jupiter and Neptune connect on April 12, followed by Mars’s swim into Pisces on the 14th, you may feel as though lightning has struck and the lightbulb in your head has gone off. Your visions will come to fruition, which will entangle you in your artistry. You can experience creative fluidity on April 27, 29, and 30 (April 29 and 30 marks the end of this project and beginning of a new one). This is a magnificent step in the right direction, Scorpio.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Sagittarius</h2></strong><br><br>We understand that you must be free in order to be happy. But, the month of April wants you to align with your familial bonds and home life. While April 1’s new moon revs up your passions and wanderlust sentiments, the Jupiter and Neptune conjunction on the 12th urges you to stay put and focus on family life. You can have your cake and eat it too, Sag — only if you find balance during April 16’s full moon and make an effort to ensure that your brood can be in contact with you if needed. Instead of climbing mountain tops in a foreign country without cell phone service, compromise by taking a hike at a nearby trail and checking your phone every few hours.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Capricorn</h2></strong><br><br>The majority of the time it’s your way or the highway. However, that dominant vibe isn’t working with your friends and colleagues anymore. Fortunately, April 1’s new moon and April 16’s full moon offer you a chance to change your controlling ways. This will require you to get real by understanding that life is never perfect and usually chaotic. The more you try to hold onto one way of thinking, the harder it will be when things don’t go your way — although you like to ensure that they do, it’s a rarity for the majority. Be prepared for this showdown between you versus life when Pluto retrograde, who’s aligned with your Sun, commences on April 29. Roll your sleeves up, Capricorn, and get messy.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>

<strong><h2>Aquarius</h2></strong><br><br>Life has been one big party, Aquarius. With all the invites and happy hours spanning from April 1 to April 16, you aren’t allowing yourself to have alone time to recharge your batteries and chill. And, as you know, that can be problematic or even affect your work. The Sun’s ingress into Taurus on April 19 and Pluto’s retrograde in Capricorn on April 29 offers you the grounding energy that you need to keep yourself centred and focused. Use that time as a chance to catch your breath, decompress, and relax. Your body, mind, and spirit will be grateful for the rest. Plus, you can dedicate your time towards healing yourself during the solar eclipse on April 30 — which is extremely important to do.<span class="copyright">Illustration by barbarianflower</span>
