your april horoscopes are here
scorpio, listen up!
To start on a scientific note for April, a deep breath predates everything—it predates movement, it’s the first element of our being before any of our five senses and even before our stomach or heartbeat. Aries represents the beginning of the zodiacal wheel, the rebirth of Spring, festivals like Easter across all cultures. A lot of new things are coming at us, the world around us begins to thaw and we can take our first breath again before taking our next steps.
You are known for being pragmatic, but this time of the year is when the light of Mars catches in your fur and you start turning heads. To confuse Disney movies for a moment, you are still Simba, but in addition to not being able to wait to be king, this month you are also capable of showing any partner “a whole new world”. It’s a good time to lean-in this month and put lots of energy towards your new project, since you are glowing with a more quiet magnetism than usual. But that’s the type of energy that actually translates into romance. I’m thinking of you out to dinner with a paramour and the crawfish jumping out of the stew and singing “kiss the girl” to somebody. (So much Disney!) Like the big, fluffy cat that you are, you should proceed with enthusiasm into your summer cut. (Do the chop!)
There’s a temptation to power through this April. It will go by quickly as the eagle. Take time to think and process, listen to the voices in your head. On April 10 take a day for yourself. Towards the end of April when Taurus begins, it will feel like a gear shifting into place and car and driver become one. Until then, make sure a child around you has a great Easter and that you have a great full moon.
SagittariusApril 12 and April 25 are two great days and nights for you. The two half moons are always special times for you, since you are half beast, half human. Make sure to go out for a jog or run, and don’t forget to go out dancing. It’s also a great time of year to cook a roasted thing for a friend, meat or fowl, or even a lot of roasted vegetables. And while you’re eating, talk some philosophy with someone.
Nothing impedes your journey that you can’t climb over, but as Capricorn Mao Zedong famously said, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. Remember that not everyone has the capacity to do things as well as you do. Many times things go very smoothly; it’s when things slip that you can fix them. On April 15, sniff out a bouquet of flowers for a loved one. And a piece of fresh fruit.
AquariusYou have a reputation for logic, but you should know that from the outside, what seems logical to you seems mystifying to everyone else. When we don’t know how something works, it either appears magical to us or humorous. In April, when the world is in Aries, you have power to conduct both. When you meet at a coffee shop with a partner and a project idea, you can use your logic to assemble what you need from what you have, and deliver magic to each other and the outside world.
Many things occur to you this month, and on April 18, when the moon is totally dark, you will have a dream about a strategy for your life that seems almost militaristic. As far as your body, April will be a good time to work out and eat super-grains. Staying flexible is not normally a problem for you, as a fish, but remember there’s a difference between strong flexibility that allows us to see different paths to our goals and being wishy-washy.
