April Monthly Horoscope for Each Sign

Astro Overview for April 2021

The second month of spring starts with the dynamic, enthusiastic and impatient drive of Aries. April’s first half is marked by new beginnings, intuitive decisions and immediate reactions. Logical thinking and quick verbalization guide our behaviour. At the same time, mid-April leads to confrontations related to authority, power and control. After the Sun’s entrance in Taurus on the evening of April 19, the atmosphere becomes more stable and clear. We are thus invited to calm down, enjoying simple pleasures and the beauty of the flowering nature. Let’s thus analyze in detail April’s main astral moments!

Mercury in Aries: energetic thoughts

On April 4, Mercury enters Aries, a sign associated with straightforwardness and self-confidence. From this moment on, we think and communicate in a combative and competitive manner. We are inclined to fight for our reasoning and courageously expose our personal ideas. Our minds easily absorb new information. We might intuitively grasp essentials, but we can also jump to conclusions and become quarrelsome out of nothing. Although we tend to stress more easily, this position of Mercury allows us to quickly regenerate our mental energy.

Mars (Gemini) square Neptune (Pisces): scattered energy

Around April 9, we might feel a certain drift in actions and goals. AstroFidelia recommends that we keep our directions clear and not waste our energy in superficial or ambiguous activities. We may avoid direct confrontations because of poor self-confidence. It is good to stay vigilant and not trust illusive appearances. On the other hand, we can take advantage of the moment to pursue our spiritual ideals and to improve our artistic skills.

Venus (Aries) square Pluto (Capricorn): confronting authority

The energy around April 12 stirs up confrontations with people we find authoritarian and inflexible. New rules and procedures for relationships are necessary. We are trying to create new systems of collaboration. Independence and the need to respect our commitments come into conflict. At the same time, we can discover extraordinary inner resources of endurance in times of relationship crisis. On a financial level, we might strongly reject the interference of public laws and institutions in our affairs. We may also start new long-term projects.

Venus in Taurus: stable and calm relationships

After April 14, we start working on stabilizing our relationships. We appreciate practical, tangible proofs of love. We also value the physical presence of our partners. We try to obtain clear commitments from our loved ones and express our devotion by making them feel comfortable around us. We begin to appreciate classical beauty more and listen to our bodies carefully. Some issues rooted in possessiveness and jealousy may require awareness and healing.

Jupiter (Aquarius) trine Mars (Gemini), sextile Mercury (Aries): bold actions and thoughts

Around April 17, we should take time for broadening our horizons. We can easily assimilate a lot of new information, combining detail and synthesis. We may formulate successful plans for our future and growth strategies. We can trust our intuitions and engage in a variety of actions, demonstrating dexterity and distributive attention. We may feel lucky, but it is avisable not to waste our chances. AstroFidelia recommends using this energy by setting high goals and starting concrete actions in this regard.

Sun-Mercury in Taurus: materialization and productivity

On April 19, the Sun and Mercury step together into Taurus. From this moment on, the collective atmosphere calms down. We start focusing on practical goals and the tangible aspects of life. We seek peace, tranquility, we prefer stable and predictable situations. We take root in physical sensations and pay attention to our bodies. Our self-esteem increases as we demonstrate our productivity and achieve practical results. We could also increase our material resources and save money for future investments.

Venus conjunct Uranus (Taurus): surprises in relationships

Around April 23, we can expect unpredictable events in relationships. We want lasting and trustworthy connections, but we cannot accept being chained. We seek the presence of nonconformist friends. Our tastes and desires combine simplicity and originality. Although Taurus encourages the appreciation of classical beauty, Uranus adds a deeply unconventional note. We find pleasure in unusual activities and in the company of free-thinkers.

Mars in Cancer: the victory of kindness

On April 23, Mars enters Cancer, a symbol of emotions and shyness. From this moment on, our actions become more prudent, aimed at creating protection for us and our loved ones. We impose our will indirectly and timidly. We can experience fluctuating courage, hesitating between various whims and changing moods. On the other hand, we can pursue some goals with great tenacity and sharp intuition, especially if we have to defend something or someone we feel very attached to.

Mercury conjunct Uranus (Taurus): revolutionary thinking

On April 24, Mercury and Uranus join forces and impel us to think differently than we usually do. Our minds are oriented toward progress and information related to technology, computing, energy, material resources, or unusual topics, such as those in the esoteric realm. This way, we may generate ideas that are both valuable and practical. Networking with large groups of friends can provide us with exciting news and leading lights for the future.

Venus and Mercury (Taurus) square Saturn (Aquarius): safe reforms

Around April 25, we are invited to plan well-structured and intelligent reforms. Although the current reality may come into conflict with our long-term goals, teamwork can be very productive. Reluctance to change might block some projects considered eccentric or utopian. AstroFidelia recommends paying attention to rigidity and inflexibility towards those with different opinions from ours. We need to respect individual freedom and to actively participate in the collective progress.

Mercury conjunct Venus (Taurus): harmonious communication

Although the end of the month brings a stubborn tension and resistance, April 26 invites us to calm down and seek mental peace. It is better not to complicate our thinking too much. We could focus on what brings us pleasure and comfort. Creativity in writing and speaking is to be expected. Various friends bring us useful information. Fron a financial poin of view, we can make safe and profitable business choices.

Sun conjunct Uranus (Taurus): radiant originality

At the end of the month, on April 30, we might feel rebellious, ready to stand up for our freedom. Our self-esteem will increase if we allow ourselves to behave in unorthodox ways. We can act as agents of change. An unusual energy colors the collective atmosphere. What we are creating right now bears a progressive and at the same time classic imprint. It is time to ask ourselves what we can do differently, while still keeping a natural and simple style.

Putting all these sequences together, April seems to function at two different poles: during the first part of the month, the combined influence of Aries and Mars in Gemini creates variety, movement, speed, energetic impulses; after the middle of the month, Taurus directs our decisions towards practical goals in a slower, continuous and stable inner rhythm. Meanwhile, the background created by Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius is maintained: regardless of our personal interests, it is good to consider social progress, mass security and the implementation of large-scale reforms.
