April 2024 Astrology Forecast

Updated: Apr 5

As we enter the first full month of Spring in the northern hemisphere, the cosmos reflect the closing of one season and opening of another. As you may have already noticed, we begin the month in the middle of eclipse season AND Mercury Retrograde … which can cause … chaos.

Don’t let it get you down, though. Things might feel a bit up in the air at the moment, but it’s really just an invitation to tune into yourself and hold space for those moments when we might just *need a minute*. Remember: Diamonds are made under pressure.

Let’s dive a bit deeper into what’s happening in April to see what the cosmos have in store:

April 3: Venus Conjunct Neptune in Pisces 

Kicking off the month, the harmonious conjunction of Venus and Neptune in dreamy Pisces sets a mystical tone. Straight off the heels of Pisces season, this conjunction invites us to immerse ourselves in the world of our imagination, explore our spirituality, and practice unconditional love (both for others AND ourselves). It's a time to embrace compassion, creativity, and the beauty of the intangible.

April 6-7: Venus in Aries Sextile Pluto in Aquarius 

As Venus steps into bold Aries, it forms a sextile with transformative Pluto in Aquarius, igniting passions and intensifying connections. This transit encourages us to embrace the courage to pursue our desires fearlessly while fostering deeper emotional connections that transcend boundaries. In a sense, it is a harbinger of what's to come for the rest of the month.

April 8: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries (conjunct Mercury and Chiron)

Eclipse season ends with a bang as the Sun and Moon meet up in fiery Aries for a solar eclipse (which can be seen in totality in certain parts of the States!)

Aries — the first sign of the zodiac — is all about fast changes, impulsive decisions and clear- eyed confidence. While this would normally be a beautiful energy for a fresh start, this eclipse (conjunct Mercury Rx and Chiron in Aries) could bring up thoughts of being behind, not good enough, smart enough, etc.

Remember, the eclipse IS the ritual. The more you can allow whatever comes up for you to move through your body, rather than shoving it down into your subconscious, the more you’ll be able to process and learn from it.

April 9-11: Mars Conjunct Saturn in Pisces 

The conjunction of Mars and Saturn in Pisces brings a blend of assertive energy and disciplined focus. It's a period for taking practical action toward our long-term goals while practicing patience and resilience. 

Challenges may arise, especially during Mercury Retrograde, but with patience and perseverance, we can overcome obstacles and build solid foundations for the future.

April 10-12: Sun Conjunct Mercury in Aries 

When the Sun meets Mercury in fiery Aries, our thoughts and communication are infused with vitality and confidence. 

This alignment sparks clarity of mind and inspires us to express ourselves boldly and authentically. It's a favorable time for initiating conversations, making decisions, and pursuing intellectual pursuits.

Just keep in mind that, during Mercury Retrograde, we may find these conversations take more concerted time, effort, and patience.

April 15-26 (Exact April 20): Jupiter Conjunct Uranus in Taurus 

The conjunction of expansive Jupiter and revolutionary Uranus in Taurus brings a period of profound shifts and breakthroughs. This is one of those alignments that only happens ONCE in our lifetime -- so take these lessons while you can because they will not come around again.

This alignment encourages us to embrace change, explore new horizons, and liberate ourselves from limiting beliefs. It's a time for innovation, experimentation, and embracing the unexpected.

April 22: Taurus Season Begins 

As the Sun enters sensual Taurus, we transition into a period of stability, practicality, and groundedness. Taurus season invites us to reconnect with the pleasures of the physical world, to nurture our senses, and to cultivate a deeper appreciation for life's simple joys.

April 28-30: Mars Conjunct Neptune in Pisces 

As Mars joins with Neptune in Pisces to round out the month, our actions are infused with sensitivity, intuition, and compassion. This conjunction encourages us to channel our energy into creative endeavors, spiritual practices, and acts of kindness. It's a time for cultivating empathy, surrendering to the flow of life, and finding inspiration in the unseen.

Throughout the month, each planetary transit offers an opportunity for growth, reflection, and transformation. As you navigate the celestial shifts of April 2024, my hope is that you embrace the lessons that unfold, trusting in the wisdom of the stars to guide you on your journey of self-discovery and evolution.
