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


Scorpio:  On April 23rd, the Scorpio full moon illuminates your first house of fresh starts, giving you a huge burst of can-do courage. Take the initiative and get the ball rolling. Speak up for what you want.


A passion project you've been working on since your last birthday could reach an important turning point now. This full moon helps you advocate for yourself. The key? Stop waiting for permission or a "sign"—and just go for it!

Pluto in Aquarius (for the first time in 248 years) will be in your fourth solar house of home, and Pluto will help you make it your restful haven against a sometimes-too-chaotic world. Pluto is your ruling planet (along with your ancient ruler Mars, before Pluto was discovered), so a change in Pluto’s placement is important in your chart.

Pluto’s influence is always quite visible, so although you may or may not feel him during this short preview, you will in time.                                            

Pluto could make you move to a house that’s more suitable to your needs. It is likely to be a home you own rather than rent. Pluto rules the foundations of things, so you may be renovating or remodeling.


Work/Money: This Aries New Moon (total solar eclipse) on April 8, occurs in your sixth solar house of work: All the taken for granted things of the household, studio, office, your pets, plants and plans, include gym and dietary wellbeing, are ready for new energy and attention.

You put your mind to the ‘little things’ to make sweeping changes. Now! Reevaluating procrastinated projects, making positive health changes

The Sun (the ruler of your tenth solar house of career) Mercury and Venus are together in Aries and your sixth solar house of work this month. In order to make it to the top of the hierarchical ladder, you’ll have to make your way up there from all the way down and put in a lot of effort.                


Many Scorpios might feel like they’re asked to work below their qualifications; that they have to fulfill tasks that are beneath their training, particularly if they opt for a new job.

If you own a business, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to motivate your employees through the power of personal example and work alongside them in order to literally show them what you expect from them.

If you’re an employee and feel like your boss is always watching, consider it your opportunity to prove what you’re capable of, to show your abilities, your practical and organizational sense.

Mercury retrogrades? If your life becomes chaotic or muddled this month, you’re probably mesmerized by a professional, academic or unpaid work choice which isn’t very realistic. Only time will tell!

But in the meantime, get second and third opinions. Solutions will come on May 14.         


This fuzzy cycle is also about your part-time or full-time job, and if you aren’t in the workforce, it’s about your duties at home, or the stuff you do on a daily basis.
