There is a lot of cosmic happenings for April, we have numerous planetary shifts as well as Pluto going retrograde. This is a month of activity as well as commitment with an ending in introspection of what new steps we have taken in the past and how they are currently impacting our lives.
For April, I used the Soul Cards

MERCURY IN ARIES: April 3 - the planet of communication enters impulsive and fiery Aries, which sets the tone for honest yet blunt expressions that can most definitely ruffle feathers. When Mercury is an Aries, it influences fast thinking as well as quick action, making firm decisions that are based on a whim more than thoughtful planning. Oftentimes wrong moves can be made when Mercury is an Aries, because of the impulsiveness. It is important to remain mindful and to slow down, to think things through, and to focus on grounding. This is a great time of starting something new in terms of career or even making plans to travel to a far-off destination.
NEW MOON IN ARIES: April 11 - the first new moon of the Pagan new year falls on April 11th, and with it being an Aries it calls for bringing in new energy, such as starting new projects and taking bold new steps. Accompanied with the new moon is a conjunction between Mercury and Venus, as well as the Sun. Good intentions to set forth during this time would be a new approach to old issues we still need to release and resolve, making new goals, adopting new mindsets, and broadening our vision for the future.

VENUS IN TAURUS: April 14 - Venus leaves Aries and enters Taurus, where it is home. Our value system is going to be put into check, relationships will be a major focus, and our finances are pushed into a more structured budget. While Venus in Taurus can be prone to lavish lifestyle choices, retail therapy, and accompanied with all of the Aries energy it can be quite impulsive with our spending habits. Thankfully with this influence we can channel the energy to a more subtle approach to these things. The goal is to slow down and really consider our actions as well as how they are echoing into the future in terms of finances, relationships, and the things that we are drawn to.
MERCURY IN TAURUS: April 19 - a few days later Mercury joins Venus and the Sun as it enters slow moving Taurus. Our communication style tends to slow down as we are more drawn to look at the facts as well as thinking things through so to develop a foolproof plan before taking action, which allows for us to pull the reins on projects or connections that were impulsively made during Mercury in Aries, however, we can also be more stubborn in shifting our mindset once we are drawn to an ideal or project.
SUN IN TAURUS: April 19 – the Sun joins Mercury and Venus as it shines brightly in Taurus. An earth sign, Taurus is more focused on remaining grounded and feeling comfortable within its skin. This is a time of focusing on our earthly pleasures, gardening – or planting new seeds metaphorically as well as realistically, and supporting growth for the projects and people we connect deeply with.
MARS IN CANCER: April 23 – Mars tends to make waves when it is in Cancer, while the waves might be small, they quietly grow eventually creating a tsunami. Cancer tempers the assertiveness and aggression of Mars and is more prone to hide away from conflict rather than addressing it head-on since sensitivities are heightened.
FULL MOON IN SCORPIO: April 26 – Scorpio urges us to dive deep into our shadow work, pushing us to clean the skeletons out of our closet and to take another look at our wounds so to transform the pain into wisdom. The Scorpio Full Moon takes no prisoners and accepts no excuses, and so triggers will be loud and clear as to what is being mirrored from within us. While our pains and the things that go bump in the night are illuminated by the Full Moon, so is our need to better protect ourselves and loved ones, bringing out our defensive side that does not beat around the bush as Mars in Cancer prefers. This is where those waves become that tsunami and everything bottled up is released.
Work Your Alchemy & Practice Self-Reflection
PLUTO RX IN CAPRICORN: April 27 – October 6 – April ends on a quiet note as Pluto goes retrograde for the next 5 months. Being in Capricorn, Pluto is power hungry and prone to corruption, or being victim to the misuse of authority by others. Here we will enter a phase of introspection in how we express our power and areas that we might be dealing with corruption. Pluto governs power as well as transformation, and when in retrograde its focus is on the internal side of those subjects.
Reading for the Collective

There are so many planetary factors this month which make triggers likely, as well as the need to aggressively act on defense. It may be difficult to hold back from saying what’s on your mind and ruffle a feather or two, but the need to do so is heightened as we need to direct our focus on our value system and how our actions will direct the future – we cannot take back words spoken out of anger, or impulsive actions made on a whim. While slowing down is not an option – especially during the first part of the month, we have to try our best to ensure we are not putting ourselves in situations which will not serve us for the long-term.
Acting with grace and learning to flow with circumstances, where we can gain control, is needed this month. We will be offered support by those who are rooting for us, but not if we are focused on quick-results or taking short cuts.
This is a month of standing up against adversity but doing so with grace and acknowledging the support we have by our side when we use thoughtful and intentional action. Many of the avenues we take this month will be put into tradition, creating habits and long-term commitments.
