April is hectic because many astrological events are happening simultaneously. The secret to managing overwhelm—especially in the face of change where we feel out of control—is finding structures to anchor you. Maybe it’s about stabilizing your routines so that your physical and mental health are secure and steady. Maybe it’s about showing up to your relationships so everyone has a community of support available. Whatever happens, allow enough time for rest and recovery. Notable dates for the month ahead are:

  • April 1: Mercury stations retrograde at 27° Aries
  • April 4: Venus enters Aries
  • April 8: Total Solar Eclipse at 19° Aries
  • April 10: Mars conjuncts Saturn at 14° Pisces
  • April 19: Sun enters Taurus
  • April 20: Jupiter conjuncts Uranus at 21° Taurus
  • April 23: Full Moon at 4° Scorpio
  • April 25: Mercury stations direct at 15° Aries
  • April 29: Venus enters Taurus
  • April 30: Mars enters Aries

I highly recommend that you primarily read the horoscopes for your rising sign. If you don't know your rising sign, you can read for your sun sign (born during the day) and/or moon sign (born at night). Read it all if you like, and take what resonates. To determine these placements, enter your birth date, location and precise birth time into an astrology app or online. For more guidance on how all of these play together, visit

March 21-April 19

Major shifts are happening, and it's time to take a deep, honest look inside. April will give you ample opportunities to align with your most authentic identities and as a result, anything that doesn’t fit in will have to be left behind. Focus on nurturing your health and deepening your spiritual practices so you have stable anchors to support you. New paths are emerging beyond your wildest imagination.

April 20-May 20

April is bringing surprises that'll both shake and thrill you. Don’t worry though because you’ve been feeling this sense of culmination since May 2023. The light bulb moment is finally here. Make sure to spend enough hermit time if possible. This period of inner work will illuminate relationships, helping you see what's truly valuable so you can move forward with more clarity and purpose.

May 21-June 21

The questions of where and how you fit in with your wider community circles are shifting your perspective and outlook. This means: who you surround yourself with and give attention to directly influences your future. It’s also equally wise to regularly revisit your past so you can understand where you’re headed. This journey backward will enlighten your path forward.

June 22-July 22

You're standing at a crossroads where your life's path splits, nudging you toward pivotal decisions (most of them career-related). It's here, amid these significant shifts, where choices loom large. The support of your friends and the larger community you’re part of is invaluable right now. Rigid beliefs and dogma aren’t good guides. Resonance, or what some might call intuitive wisdom, will be your wise counsel. Get to know how it feels in your body when you’re sure of yourself versus when you’re distressed from indecision.

July 23-Aug. 22

Step into an unexpected adventure that broadens your horizons and challenges firmly held beliefs. For April, the questions you ask will be the source of wisdom—rather than the answers themselves. The events of the month ahead will likely influence how you show up to the world publicly. Do not stop engaging in the intricate process of exploring your psychological underworld. Commit to knowing yourself deeply so you can lead a richer and more authentic expression of the life you truly want to live.

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Every ending marks the start of something new and these endings are opening doors to unimagined possibilities. But resisting closure could be preventing you from discovering new options. Step out of your own way. Yes, it may be uncomfortable but this is a necessary part of the kind of growth that will sustain you for a long time. Pay attention to how your relationships hold up a mirror to aspects of yourself that are hard to face. Be kind to yourself as you move through your healing journey.

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Your relationships may be revealing truths that might be difficult to confront. But you don’t need to bulldoze your way towards adjustments; allow things to settle in their own time. Whether this current moment of change brings improvement or adversity, focus on what resonates with your heart. And generate the right amount of structure to support you as you navigate it. There are slivers of sunlight ahead.

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

The energy you invest in each day is a limited and precious resource. You are not invincible. Be discerning in selecting where to direct your focus and efforts, for your well-being hinges on these choices. Consider the impact of your decisions on your health and vitality. Please ask for help and let people surprise you. Maybe it takes creativity and play to help you surpass your blocks so you can directly ask for what you desire and deserve.

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Where do you find passion in your life? What ignites it—and inspires it? Reflect on what it means to pursue your deepest desires, especially around your sense of personal fulfillment and authenticity. How can you centre joy in most of your life’s important decisions?

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Acknowledge the significance of your roots and upbringing, even if they harbour painful memories. Delve into your past to gain insights to empower your current life so you can live with grace and presence. This is the time to experiment and take bold risks—otherwise you may feel like you’re imploding with a new change that you have yet to imagine.

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

Global problems require local solutions. Let this phrase also apply to the context of your bigger personal problems. When you’re overwhelmed, look closer and go smaller. What you need might just be in front of your face. Do not overcomplicate an otherwise simple situation. Right now, it’s okay if you do not have answers. The wisdom might be found in how you’re asking your questions.

Feb. 19-March 20

Achieving this goal demands self-discipline and dedication to hard work.
