Here’s Each Zodiac Sign’s Comprehensive Horoscope For April 2020

April will be a month of learning and discovering hope, considering the challenges that the world is currently facing with COVID-19. Aries season represents cardinal fire. This is the shift from the rocky waters of Pisces that we have traversed and onto more methods of initiating.

In Pisces, we saw the concerns with the coronavirus, and during the Virgo full moon, many governments took preventative action to contain the spread in March. Aries season does not guarantee a drastic change, but it will enable more action in order to make bigger changes for tomorrow. With Saturn entering the sign of Aquarius around the same time the Spring Equinox begins, we can only look forward to a more positive change, since these signs are moving from earth and water to air and fire.

We all look forward to what Aries season has to bring. It is the start of the new season, where new life, as well as hope, is birthed. Most of us are practicing isolation, and keeping in touch with friends and family seems like a pertinent thing to do during this period to keep our spirits up. It is a period of learning, as well and finding the strength to persist and continue to fight. We have to ensure to keep our spirits up, to not give up on hope, because it can become our strongest ally and the greatest weapon of all against fear.

Aries

We finally made it to your sign, and we all look to it for a change. Ironically, while Aries likes to move and explore, we are mostly practicing isolation at this time. Where this would usually hold you down, you might feel a sense of confidence with Jupiter bringing tension to your Sun sign. It might give you a boost of optimism or bring you crashing down to negativity. Make sure to strike a balance, since this month will be a lesson plan for you, especially when Jupiter and Pluto connect closer to bring on the intensity. A sign of relief will come with the full moon in Libra, bringing some balance to the overwhelming path this month, making you tune into what you need and how others can help you achieve that. With Venus in the sign of Gemini, you will feel a boost of confidence and energy that will help keep you in good spirits toward the end of the month. Later this month, when the sun shifts to Taurus, you will feel a little less pressure, allowing you to go back and focus on rebuilding yourself and putting the focus back on you, but from a calmer and more neutral ground.

Taurus

Later this month we enter your season, and we are all looking forward to that. For now, the Sun is in Aries, and it is making you more methodical and contemplative. This period of time can amp up your anxiety, but you have to remember to relax. Venus is still in your sign for the earlier parts of April before it trapezes into the sign of Gemini, making you more prone to look at your finances and worth. Venus will be retrograding in this sign, so be careful not to practice the “treat yourself” mentality until later this year. With Pluto and Jupiter meeting up on April 4, there will be a drive in you to explore and seek some truths about the world or something you might have been curious about for a while. Higher learning opportunities are possible at this time. The full moon in Libra will have a calming effect on you, since you are both Venus-ruled signs. Being practical and planning will come with greater ease as you get more focused on achieving your goals and set your sights toward the future. Finally, when the Sun enters your sign on the 19th, you will feel that boost of energy you have longed for that will wake you up from that slumber.

Gemini

This is going to be a very interesting month for you. Venus will enter the sign of Gemini on the 3rd, and it will remain there for a while. For those who have had troubles with love, this period will be an eye-opening one for you. It will be a learning experience as you become more aware of your relationships in the past and present, giving you keys to think about the future. The Sun is in Aries for the first part of the month, bringing the connections with friends through social media. You thrive when it comes to communication, and when Mercury enters Aries on the 11th, you will see just how good you can be. There could be some recognition, since you will be more active on the social media platforms, potentially making new friends and connections. The full moon in Libra brings excitement to your life during this transit; it also sparks your creativity, pushing you to get to work and make more content (especially for those artists and writers out there). April begins a period of transformation and promises to show you the new journey to self-discovery.

Cancer

April promises to be interesting, as well as a little frustrating, as you receive tensions from both Capricorn and Aries, but you will find a way to power through it all with your resilience. Working hard will be on your schedule, and it will feel like it might be nonstop. You will feel some pressures trying to recalibrate your schedule, and with everything going on, you might be overwhelmed. The full moon in Libra will bring some harmony and balance to your environment, halting the madness for a while and allowing for a nice breather. Venus in Gemini will also provide some relief and relaxation as the anxiety slowly starts to creep away, bringing you back to a sense of temporary normalcy. When the Sun enters the sign of Taurus, you will be more receptive to what the season has to offer. Connecting with friends will be a huge theme this transit, and the New Moon might amp the focus for you, especially with most people practicing isolation. The Pluto and Jupiter conjunction will be a doozy for everyone, and this might be a period where you might need to meditate so that you won’t crumble those close relationships to you.

Leo

This month will be a learning experience. Aries season keeps you full of hope and some optimism, although it can feel fleeting. When Mercury enters Aries on the 11th, part of you will have a need to learn and dive more into topics that have been calling out to you for the last couple of months. With the Jupiter and Pluto conjunction making us all want to hide, you will feel more intrigued about uncovering truths while becoming fixated on making changes to your routines. Lots of fixed signs will be running for cover, since Saturn is now in the sign of Aquarius, but you will feel confident enough to handle this energy. This is a point in time where you will feel the need to reflect and look within. Saturn might point out some things you need to change and will most likely feel confident working on. Interpersonal relationships will be eye opening for you during this transit. The full moon in Libra on the 7th will make you sharper and more focused. More tools in your inventory to help you navigate those thoughts in your mind that will be sparked by Jupiter, which will put you on the path to organization and efficiency until the remainder of the year. You’ll be happy when the Sun enters Taurus because you will have your moment in the sun and will embrace it.

Virgo

The Sun in Aries this month will stir up some emotions from your past. The Jupiter and Pluto conjunction on the 4th will spark some memories riddled with pain as you think back on the moments of happiness, along with the thoughts of endings in certain relationships. There could have been someone that was a strong influence from your past who might stir up some memories of a distant past. Like most signs this year, you will have to battle with those memories in order to let go and move on. The full moon in Libra brings the focus back on you and where your comfort zones reside. You might be compelled to critique yourself for not managing finances the way you have dreamed, but a lot of us are dealing with unexpected events and turmoil with our income. Best to be patient and focus more on your well being. Relax. A more favorable time begins when the Sun enters Taurus later on in the month, giving you the courage needed to take on a new path, and you might even feel a little more optimistic about the changes that have been brought into your life in the last two months. These changes are drastic and upsetting, but you will become more acclimated as time goes on. After all, these are still a lot of lessons that we are learning along the way.

Libra

One of the biggest events this month will be the full moon in your sign on the 7th. This will be an empowering moment for you, even if it does not feel like it is at the time. Full moons serve to activate our own power within, a time of breaking down parts of ourselves and tackling our own vulnerabilities. The Sun in Aries this month will still ignite passion and excitement for you as well. If you have felt defeated by Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter this year, you will find a way to stabilize yourself after everything felt like it was slipping away. There will be a release of energy, and with Venus entering Gemini, you may find yourself transforming through a new spiritual path. Saturn’s ingress in Aquarius will be a breathing period for you, since those Cardinal placements are coming apart (for now), giving you room to take a moment to relax as you plan for what comes next. The warrior within you is definitely out this month, even if it does not seem like it. You will feel more focused and more willing to take on the role of tactician. Finally, the shift to Taurus Season will be a little more relaxing for you as you focus on rebuilding while taking a step back from the world.

Scorpio

You are compelled and driven to work hard this month with the Sun finally in Aries. However, everything will feel like it’s come to a frustrating halt, given the world events happening now. Take a step back and decompress; this period of time can be a good way to figure out if your body needs a break or if you need to make some changes that will help improve your health. The full moon in Libra on the 7th will motivate you to take time to rest and rebuild. If you have felt exhausted before or needed a break, now is your time to do it. This will be therapeutic and wonderful for you. But be prepared, because with Venus entering the sign of Gemini, things might heat up and move extremely fast, maybe too fast for your liking. This will be an interesting period filled with exploration and lots of communication. This month adds even more fun and exciting moments when the Sun moves to Taurus, which will bring to focus some potential partnerships (if you’re looking) or a way to solidify self-love.

Sagittarius

It has been a long journey for you, but this fire season will bring some excitement to your life. Aries season will feel like a very surreal moment in time, given the situation in the world, but you know how to make the best of the situation. The Jupiter and Pluto conjunction in Capricorn might feel like a dreaded moment which will force you to take a look at what you learned from your last Saturn transit in Sagittarius. That foundation is going to be rocked, but you have endured, so keep strong and focused. If you have been putting off projects for months, prepare now for a burst of creative stimulation that will keep you occupied. With Venus entering the sign of Gemini on the 3rd, you will feel more in tune with art and romance. You may speak some lovely words or someone will speak them to you. During the full moon in Libra, you will feel connected to your social circle and might feel even more motivation from them, which puts your inspiration on another level. The Sun enters Taurus on the 19th, making you more focused and bringing a sense of determination to get things done efficiently. Continue kicking ass and enjoy this Venus transit in Gemini.

Capricorn

Mars and Saturn are finally out of your sign, bringing some much-needed relief on your end. However, Jupiter and Pluto are still there, rocking your world. On the 4th, they come closer in a conjunction to remind you that you are still going through the transformative phase, so keep focused, since Saturn will eventually come back to join them several months from now. You still need to work hard even now. It will feel stressful with the pandemic, but you’ve got this. Your efficiency and resourcefulness is what makes you someone that people admire. When you feel defeated, remember to think about the battles you have dealt with and won. Venus enters the sign of Gemini, adding more passion to your work, making you multi-task and prepare for more. You are ready. With the full moon in Libra, this can be an eye opener. As you notice where your work and accomplishments have led you, don’t get too caught up and expect to make drastic changes (yet). The Sun entering the sign of Taurus on the 19th promises to bring some fun and joy to your life briefly as you enjoy the happier moments before you get back into overdrive to get more shit done.

Aquarius

We can expect fellow air signs to be ecstatic with Venus entering Gemini on the 3rd, bringing you some enjoyable moments. Moments like these are needed, especially with the pandemic and everyone practicing isolation. Venus in Gemini will prompt you to reach out to others, to establish new connections, and to find joys in unconventional ways that involve communication. On the 4th, Jupiter and Pluto are exact, making you ponder over the past and how to break away from those memories that might be holding you back in order to create a healthier and happier future. The full moon in Libra will give you the insights needed to make changes, to connect with your higher self, and to even seek a greater good through philosophy. It can be a moment where you feel more studious, wanting to embark on journeys through learning. The theme of connecting and staying connected will be prominent for everyone, but air signs will know how to navigate through these waters with ease. The Sun entering the sign of Taurus on the 19th brings a relaxing energy and the focus on grounding you from all of the air energy. You will get in touch with those closest to you and have a new appreciation for them.

Pisces

April will bring a lot of promise for you, but it requires patience. We are all learning how to handle being patient with the pandemic. This period of isolation will allow for you to focus on setting your goals, planning ahead, and thinking about your stability as the Sun and Mercury shift to Aries. Once Venus shifts into the sign of Gemini on April 3rd (and remains there for a several months), it will help resolve your need for grounding, as well as the growing questions that continue to nag you. This Venus transit resonates with what the world is going through. You will reach out to loved ones or be surrounded by them. Focusing on security and stability will be major for you. With the Full Moon in Libra on April 7th, you might feel the fear and anger creep up on you, but you will manage because you are patient and diligent when you want to overcome. You have been on a journey for months, seeking answers, thinking about the past and the future. When the Sun moves into the sign of Taurus on the 19th, you will be more prepared to tackle these questions, to find those answers aggressively, and to express your needs and desires.
