Key themes: finding inspiration in your origins, tapping into what offers you a sense of freedom, honoring your pleasure and your desires, communicating your truth.

Dear Aquarius, there has been so much movement in the cosmos since the beginning of the astrological year. Mars finally left its 7 month residency through Gemini, entering Cancer, where it invites us to be courageous with our emotions.

Pluto’s shift into Aquarius for the next 20 years, after having spent the past 15 years in the sign of Capricorn, helping to reveal and dismantle the societal structure that only work for the few, will now show us what we have to heal and bring to the surface regarding collectivity and our ability to work together towards shared causes. Prepare for some deep transformation to occur within or through your identity, personal goals and journey of self-discovery.

With Saturn also having shifted signs, into Pisces, we’re becoming more permeable and empathic, and this will require us to consistently check in on our personal boundaries. This is especially noticeable for you in your resources, finances, and the things that are capable of uplifting your sense of self-worth. You’ll be able to bring more structure to your financial world by trusting your gut.

The month of April begins with Mercury stepping out of Aries and settling into Taurus on the 3rd, in your area of home and family. It’s time to reconnect with your roots and to find inspiration in your lineage. You may discover that the stagnancy you’ve been feeling has deep, ancient origins that are worth exploring. Take this opportunity to reconnect to your core and your foundations. Tap into the joy of exploring your ancestry and the land that you call home. Even familiar settings and foundations can surprise you with their hidden treasures.

The Full Moon in Libra happens on the 6th at 12:34 am EST, shining a light on your philosophical pursuits and desire for freedom and expansion. You might find that your desires and perspectives have shifted due to obstacles you’ve recently encountered. You may find that once you reach a goal you get clearer on the direction that you need to reorient yourself towards. You may find yourself desiring a home life that’s as exciting to come back to as the outside world. You deserve both, and this is a nice time to make that happen for yourself.

On the 11th, Venus, the planet of love, will enter the connection seeking sign of Gemini. This is a time for you to connect to pleasure, beauty, and any sound, scent, or texture that calls out to you. How often do you allow yourself to indulge in the things that bring you joy and fill you with a sense of delight? This will be a generative phase, so it’s important to let your hands take the lead and not overanalyze things. Trust in your ability to create and express yourself, and don’t be afraid to share your creations with the world. Embrace your passions and revel in the beauty that surrounds you.

Eclipse Season is back, and we’ll have a New Moon Total Annular Solar Eclipse in Aries on the 2oth at 12:12 am EST, right before the Sun moves into Taurus. As this happens in your area of communication, learning, and daily activities, the eclipse wants to remind you of the value of connecting with your immediate environment and the ones that are around you on a day-to-day basis. It’s a good time to deepen your ties with them and work on cultivating stronger relationships. Have more meaningful conversations, listen more actively, and communicate more openly.

Then at 4:13am EST, that same day, we make way for Taurus Season, shining a light on home and family. This is an invitation to recommit to caring for yourself consistently. When feelings of being undeserving creep in, be intentional about interrupting them. Your needs are not a disturbance, they’re here to help you connect with your well-being. Check in on the spaces where you feel indifference towards yourself or your emotions, go deeper to see what’s behind this. Work on cultivating a life for yourself that feels grounding, generous and caring. You deserve it. On the next day, Mercury goes retrograde also in the sign of Taurus, taking you through a process of reviewing all of this, and maybe bringing some setbacks that can help you establish the truth of what you need before you can more authentically explore and shift your foundations.
