April horoscope: Aries season becomes Taurus season

With last month’s Astrological New Year, let’s see what this month brings

I think it’s safe to say, regardless of your sign, that if you are a Trinity student you have had a rough time since spring break. April can be very challenging, as that spring break feeling lingers and finals loom ahead. It is currently Aries season, which began on March 20 and marked the start of a new astrological year. Taurus season starts on April 19, when we will see the new year’s energy being put to use. On April 6 there will be a full moon in Libra, and on April 10 Venus enters Gemini. This month will round out with the sun entering Taurus on April 20 and Mercury retrograde beginning in Taurus on April 21. Please note that the horoscope below is based on both astrological news and my personal opinion.

Taurus April 20-May 20
Experiencing burnout? Aries season brings themes of healing into your life and can help you find a better work-life balance. Take time to understand what you’re thinking and feeling and prioritize self-care. Hopefully, you’ll enter your birthday month feeling stronger than before.

Gemini May 21-June 20
Be open to new experiences and go out of your way to connect with others. Take center stage and embrace the limelight. You’ll be ready for anything this summer.

Cancer June 21-July 21
Believe in yourself and be hopeful that your life will get back on track. The beginning of Taurus season should clarify your future plans. As always, keep on shining.

Leo July 22-Aug. 22
You may be feeling more productive and motivated this month. The April 6 full moon will highlight your communication shortcomings and Taurus season (beginning on April 20) will force you to focus on your work life. Remember to slow down once and a while to find new solutions to old problems.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22
This month, step out of your comfort zone to be your most authentic self. The full moon occurring on April 6 falls into your money zone which might disrupt your finances in either a positive or negative way, so make sure to stay focused on your long-term goals. Remember to reflect on the challenges you face and continue to grow as a person.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22
This month might bring some new changes to your life. This is the time for love for Libras, with the new moon on April 6. Existing and new relationships will flourish. Mercury retrograde on April 21 will bring even more change, so don’t forget to make time to process it all.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Burnout has hit you pretty hard, but there may be some rest for you this month. The full moon on April 6 should bring you healing and closure. Take time for self-reflection. The shift to Taurus season on April 20 will bring your close relationships into focus.
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 20
New opportunities are coming your way this month. The new moon on April 10 might illuminate new paths you thought were impassable. Focus on your long-term goals and be open to new relationships.

Capricorn Dec. 21-Jan. 19
You might be feeling like you are being pulled in two different directions right now, but Taurus season (April 20) can help you feel more grounded as the dust settles. Remember to redirect some of that ambitious energy back to yourself to take it slow during the Mercury retrograde on April 21 and be ready for an exciting summer.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 17
Tap into your creative energy this month and prioritize your loved ones. With Taurus season (April 20), you may feel more homesick than normal. Don’t lose faith in yourself.

Pisces Feb. 18-March 19
You may be feeling more grounded than usual this month. On April 20 when Taurus season begins, you may find yourself being more talkative and assertive. Lean into that energy and speak up for yourself. Mercury retrograde on April 21 will help you make your long-term goals feel closer than ever.

Aries March 20-April 19 You might be feeling relaxed and healed as your birthday season comes to a close. As Taurus season begins, you may be feeling more stressed than normal, but keep pushing. Try to use Mercury retrograde on April 21 to clear up your future plans.
