Powerful astrological transits are on their way in April! Once Mercury goes retrograde, the upcoming eclipse and the Jupiter-Uranus aspect will change the game. As usual, the retrograde brings slowdowns and delays—especially on April 1 and 25. This is a “yellow light” from the universe, alerting you to move forward with caution. If you don’t let this time paralyze you, you’ll find what you need to embrace change.

Mercury cozies up to the North Node in Aries on April 25, compounding those retrograde issues. But once Mercury stations direct around the North Node, hit the gas. You have your green light from the universe! Delays will be released and the pipeline of tasks might feel dizzying.

We all know Mercury retrogrades create practical issues. But use this time to slow down and reflect, to catch up on tasks and tap into your inner vision. Aries is a fire sign—all about big, bold, aspirational ideas that light you up. Pause, think and ensure those bold ideas align with your larger goals and dreams. Keep your impulses in check before you leap into action.


One of 2024’s most important astrological events comes April 8: a total solar eclipse. Its path of totality will traverse a large swath of the eastern U.S. Eclipses are powerful harbingers of change and transformation and solar eclipses are associated with new beginnings, shifting circumstances and a recalibration of personal (and collective) priorities.

Aries brings so much to the table: leadership, courage, a pioneering spirit and more noble aspects. Energetically, he brings action, passion, enthusiasm and a desire for new beginnings. But there’s also a confrontational, conflict-ready aspect to be channeled wisely. The North Node's influence amplifies these qualities, adding intensity and a sense of destiny to the events and emotions surrounding this time.

There’s a fine line between starting new projects and all-out upheavals. Aries will push us to embrace change. This eclipse is ruled by Mars in Pisces, who will conjunct Saturn. This influence should inspire some careful planning and discipline to pursue your goals, whatever obstacles appear in the way. Balancing enthusiasm with a realistic understanding of the challenges ahead is crucial.

Eclipse seasons often realign us with our authentic purpose. Stay open to opportunities for positive transformation and have faith in your resilience to handle any challenges that arise. By remaining centered, flexible and self-aware, you can navigate this powerful time gracefully and emerge stronger and more aligned with your truth. Embrace the journey ahead with courage and an open heart.


What really matters to you? The Mars-Saturn conjunction in Pisces will shed light on commitments and limitations. It's time to consider our promises, whether they're personal, professional or even legal. Reassess commitments that don’t align with your core values and future dreams. The Pisces vibe makes us all reflective and deep, so take your time and don't rush into anything binding.

Set your boundaries carefully to avoid overextending yourself. You’ll save yourself the trouble of feeling overwhelmed, drained and resentful down the road.

Instead, focus on what's truly essential for your security and happiness. That might mean making tough calls and letting go of commitments or relationships that no longer serve you.
You can navigate this time with more clarity, resilience and overall satisfaction by being intentional, discerning and realistic.


Time to slow down! Reconnect with enjoyment, comfort and connection. Taurus season is about embracing a slower pace and enjoying the simple things that make us happy. It invites us to reconnect with what grounds, calms and comforts us. The Sun in Taurus is co-present with Jupiter and Uranus, making it a very exciting season.

Ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, Taurus is an earth sign big on comfort, indulgence and sensory delights. During this time, it's essential to slow down, chill out and tune into what feels good. Taurus season is about engaging your senses and finding pleasure in the moment, fully immersing yourself in the present.

It's a great time to reconnect with nature. Spending time outdoors and surrounding yourself with natural beauty helps you feel grounded, centered and at peace. Taurus's earthy energy encourages a deeper appreciation for the world around us. This season reminds us to appreciate the simple joys in life—like creating a comfortable, beautiful space for yourself and finding contentment in the present moment. So take a deep breath, indulge in what makes you happy and enjoy this earthy season's laid-back, sensual vibes.


The conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus, occurring approximately every 14 years, is one of the most exciting aspects of 2024. This event combines Jupiter’s expansive energy with Uranus’ disruptive, change-seeking force. This union amplifies their potential, leading to a powerful influence that can manifest on both personal and collective levels.

Jupiter, known as the "greater benefic," is associated with abundance and growth. However, its amplifying effect on Uranus' unpredictable energy can also lead to excess, instability, or an uncomfortable degree of change. This conjunction challenges us to break free from limitations and embrace a more liberated way of being, which may push some outside of their comfort zones.

On a global scale, this transit could catalyze events and movements focused on freedom, rebellion against the status quo—even radical societal change. For individuals, it encourages stepping outside of familiar patterns, exploring untapped potential and opening oneself to new possibilities. Approach the changes and disruptions with optimism, positive intentions and the spirit of openness and adventure. Resisting this conjunction's transformative power may lead to more significant challenges, while embracing it allows exciting new horizons to emerge.

Let's aim to harness this energy consciously for positive breakthroughs and personal growth. We can align ourselves with the cosmic invitation to evolve and thrive by embracing—rather than resisting—this transformational influence.


The full moon in Scorpio is a time of emotional healing. Our past wounds, hidden emotions and unresolved issues come to the forefront and are illuminated. The intensity may feel uncomfortable, but it’s essential for our growth. Mars, the planet that rules this full moon, is closely aligned with Neptune, the planet of illusion and intuition.

This creates a profoundly emotional and watery energy, heightening our sensitivity and potentially causing confusion. Scorpio—a fixed water sign—is known for its intensity and reluctance to let go. While our emotions may make us feel stuck or overwhelmed, this is an opportunity to release the toxic patterns and emotional baggage that no longer serve us. The influence of Mars and Neptune may also slow our pace and cause us to feel overwhelmed. Therefore, self-care, compassion and understanding for ourselves and others is essential. Stay in, lie low and tend to your well-being to make the most of this full moon.

Here's what's happening for your Sun sign in April 2024...


Get ready for one of 2024’s most game-changing months. The headliner is the total solar eclipse in your sign, happening April 8. These always shake things up and bring new beginnings, but this one is on another level, realigning you with your true self. Because it's a North Node eclipse, its impact is even stronger—making everything feel more intense and fated. The North Node only swings by your sign every 18.5 years and hangs out there for 18 months, pushing you to step outside your comfort zone. As an Aries, you're all about challenges and change, so dive into this powerful portal and it will recalibrate your priorities. The tricky bit is that Mars, your ruling planet, is in Pisces during this eclipse. Mars will conjunct Saturn, leading to roadblocks, slowdowns or a need to plan carefully. Balance your innate enthusiasm with a realistic take on the challenges ahead. Also, Mercury is doing its retrograde thing, which might be a good thing? Instead of diving in headfirst, get clear on what concrete steps you need to take. Sit tight and trust in your ability to handle whatever comes your way. Whatever you want is within your grasp; it's up to you to decide if you will make it happen. Embrace the change with your courageous heart!

While your ruler Mercury is in retrograde (in the bold sign of Aries) it’s time to step back and reevaluate your beliefs. Be open to fresh perspectives and daring ideas that come your way, as they might spark a fire within you! On April 8, a total solar eclipse in Aries will shake things up and bring about major changes. Think of it like a new moon on steroids, paving the way for your true purpose.

During this time, be aware of synchronicities with people you connect with. On April 10, Mars and Saturn in Pisces will hook up in your career house, raising questions about your commitments and limitations. Have you taken on too much or overcommitted? The Pisces energy prompts you to take a breather and reassess what matters to you. Be honest with yourself and respect your boundaries. Only take on what you can handle and give the rest a polite, "no thanks."




April is a defining month for your career. The month begins with Mercury retrograde in fiery Aries, your 10th house of career. Mercury retrograde prompts you to reexamine your beliefs, actions and desires. What do you need to let go of that holds you back? By being self-aware and intentional, you can turn the challenges of Mercury's retrograde into opportunities for growth. The total solar eclipse in bold Aries arrives on April 8, igniting that house even more. Solar eclipses herald change, offering exciting possibilities yet remaining unpredictable. The eclipse in Aries emphasizes individuality, action and leadership. Aries brings courage, a pioneering spirit and the ability to confront problems head-on. However, eclipses can be disruptive and this one is no exception. It’s essential to harness the visionary energy and enthusiasm for new beginnings while remaining mindful of potential disruption and upheaval. Mars in Pisces—the ruler of the eclipse—will meet up with Saturn, creating delays, obstacles, or frustrations. Be patient. Embrace the opportunity for growth and change, approach it strategically and be ready to adapt and persevere. Stay courageous and enthusiastic and lean into your power, Cancer!

Aries is an adventurous and enthusiastic sign, so this is a great time to try new experiences. Eclipses are unpredictable and can take you out of your comfort zone. Take the road less traveled! Mercury retrograde in Aries gives you even more motivation to rethink. On April 22, there will be a rare cosmic occurrence—the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction—which only happens once every 14 years. This conjunction will amplify Jupiter's growth-oriented energy and Uranus's rebellion-and-upheaval energy, making it an excellent opportunity for catalytic breakthroughs and exciting changes. Leo, it’s time to unlock your potential and explore new possibilities in your professional life. Embrace change and step into the unknown. Whether diving deep into spiritual growth, chasing inspired visions, or taking quantum leaps in your professional life, staying true to yourself and being aligned with your higher purpose is essential. 



Since May 2018, Uranus (the great awakener) has been dwelling in your 9th house of spirituality, wisdom and travel. He’s slowly reshaped this area of your life, breaking up outworn beliefs and propelling you to broaden your horizons. You've been on a private vision quest for nearly six years! Jupiter, the planet of expansion, joined the 9th house soiree last May. For you, the most important cosmic event in 2024 is the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Taurus. This rare conjunction only occurs every 14 years and the last time they were in Taurus was in 1941. Jupiter's optimism and growth combined with Uranus's idealism and innovation, amplify their unified potency. It’s an exciting time of radical change, where sudden opportunities could radically alter the direction of your life for the better. A trip abroad might change your destiny, you might meet your spiritual guru, or go back to college. These exciting breakthroughs all occur in the 9th house, where you find meaning and what brings you a sense of purpose. So, it is essential to take a risk! Do something novel, something that you've never experienced before. Approach these changes and disruptions with optimism, positive intentions and a spirit of openness and adventure. May you have the courage to be yourself…and be inspired to take risks and do something you never thought possible.




Ready or not, April brings transformations—especially in your relationships.
