Monthly Horoscope for April

The New Moon (first total solar eclipse of 2023) on April 8th occurs in Aries and the Full Moon on April 23rd falls in Scorpio. Mercury travels into Aries and will remain until May 14th (due to his retrograde motion. On April 6th Venus enter into Aries and will remain until April 29th. Mars sails into Pisces until April 30th.  Jupiter is in Taurus until May 25. Saturn is in Pisces until February 2026. Uranus is direct in Taurus. Neptune is direct in Pisces and Pluto is direct in Aquarius.

When a planet is retrograde in our charts, it means that the properties of that planet, in a sense, are reversed. The times that Mercury goes retrograde defines a time for us to slow down and go within. Think about what is happening in our lives and where we are going. Most of us see this time as an annoyance, but once again, Astrology is a tool and we need to use the time for our benefit.

Generally speaking, during a Mercury retrograde, we can expect delays, traffic situations, problems in communications (especially with telephones and cell phones), computer problems, delays in mail, and we never want to sign any contracts or legal documents, especially long-term ones. We don't throw logic completely out the window, if something needs to be taken care of and is of an urgent nature, we don't put it off, we just do what we need to do and see what unfolds.

All Aries and Libra are affected by this solar eclipse. Personal life is the most likely area to suffer, especially your closest relationships. The effect of a Solar Eclipse can last up to six months even years, so allow yourself to be acutely aware of all that you set in motion the day before, the day of and the day after the Eclipse!

We want to clarify our daily and monthly horoscopes are general for all zodiac signs and do not take into account of your personal natal chart.  For a personal reading click here

Capricorn:  On April 8th the New Moon (total solar eclipse) occurs in Aries and in your fourth solar house. Your family and home will occupy your attention over the next 6 months. You will be more involved with parents and their affairs, particularly your father.                                                          

Real estate dealings may be stepped up. You could be involved in some way in a home improvement or home repair project. You can find yourself spending more time than usual at home.

This is an excellent time to bring some long-standing situation to a conclusion. There may be a change of residence.


With the Sun, Mercury and Venus also in Aries and into your fourth solar house of family, past, and emotional roots, you should deal with the basis on which you’re building your marriage or the building of a real family.                                                                                                                                           

If you feel awkward in your own life, you should ask yourself what is missing so you’d feel at home with your better half. The planetary transits of this month help you get closer and find the solution so you can consolidate your life as a couple.

This cycle especially influences family relationships, and the connections you have with your flat-mates, as well as the bond between you and your live-in partner. If you consider your animals to be part of the family, the complicated nature of a Venus transit can extend to them as well.                                             During this month you will have completed your renovations; temporary accommodation plans; redecoration; household reshuffle; family organization; property move.

Keep in mind that Mercury retrogrades from April 2nd through April 25. So many X-factors will complicate your dealings with a family member or household member now, that you may want to wait until this cycle is totally over before you start making up your mind.                                            

This is particularly true if you are selling them something, lending them money, or buying/borrowing/negotiating.

Mercury is about all that, and he is now retrograde in your family zone.

Whatever the nature of your parental, brother or sister ‘business’, though, this is a famously odd time, when what is allegedly settled or final, is often subject to change or flux.

As Uranus transits through the 5th solar house until 2026, you will project a new and exciting magnetism, but this energy can also attract some unusual people in our lives.

Friends who are out of the ordinary, original and artistic, also the possibility of a romantic infatuation.

This period will bring to your life a new vision and a new kind of understanding.                                                                      

The Fifth House also rules sex. An intimate relationship now will show you what freedom is.  

Chances are, what’s on offer within a duet or duel, promises to be so exciting and so liberating that you’ll gladly go along with this little life experiment with the other person, or the other side.  


It could mean a new look for your professional double act – or the chance to go to the other side of the story, emotionally or sexually, with a partner. You will pursue change at a rate that makes you feel secure, now, if you’re wise. By May 25th 2024, it’s done.

On April 23rd the Full Moon in Scorpio your 11th solar house could manifest as new endings in these areas of your life.

It could be that a friend moves away, or you leave a group or organization that you belong to at this time. It could also be that if you and your friends or those groups that you belong to have been involved in an event or plan of some sort, that this is completed at this time.

This is also the house of your hopes and dreams and it may mean that this is the time when there is some sort of culmination or achievement of the said dream is achieved.

Work/MoneyPluto in Aquarius, and you are about to discover, over the next 20 years, why business, houses, apartments, heirlooms, inheritance, charity and so on, is a channel for power.

Why it manifests as control. It goes without saying that you’d enter into decisions very, very carefully and slowly, Capricorn.

Handling the house, money, business, charity or apartment with great care and the best professional advice you can afford is very wise.                                             

Don’t lend someone money, even if they are related to you, without checking. Over the next few years, you may end up in quite a powerful position.                                                                                 

Pluto can and will empower you financially, but you will need to use your own willpower to deal with the transit. You may end up rich – it happens.

Keep yourself on a tight leash and you will be amazed at how much is possible later. You get a taste of this by June at the very latest.
