Key themes: tapping into your creative fire, checking in on your career and long-term goals, recommitting to your health and wellness routines, reassessing your work habits, connecting with family and ancestry.

Dear Capricorn, 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 resources, talents, finances, and the things that are capable of uplifting your sense of self-worth.

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 communication, daily activities and immediate environment. Trust that your perspective has value, because these next three years you’ll have the ability to make serious waves with your ideas.

The month of April begins with Mercury stepping out of Aries and settling into Taurus on the 3rd in your area of creative self-expression. You’re being asked to slow down and indulge in the pleasures of life. Savor everything. Dive deep into what life has to offer you. This is not just about reading books and listening to other peoples experiences, or about observing things from afar. It’s about getting your hands dirty and living every experience with all of your senses. Open up to new insights about yourself and your desires.

The Full Moon in Libra happens on the 6th at 12:34 am EST, shining a light on your professional life. Take time to celebrate all of your successes. Let the lessons of your accomplishments sink in. Allow yourself to enjoy the fruits that you have labored to manifest. Take the time to ask yourself, what might be too much to continue with? What has become too draining and without proper benefits? Meet the answers with an uncompromising tenderness for yourself and your worth.

On the 11th, Venus, the planet of love, will enter the connection seeking sign of Gemini. You may find yourself captivated by the intricate systems and moving parts that make up your work environment. If you find yourself in a reserved or isolated work space, this is a nice time to get to know your coworkers a little better by playing around with breaking down the communication barriers. It’s also a nice time to find ways to make your office space more inviting, small touches of beauty can come a long way in making your day a bit sweeter.

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 family and ancestry, you’re being urged to bring any fears or concerns you have regarding your home and your relationships within it into the light. Eclipses catalyze change. What do you need in order to feel safer within your home? What steps can you begin to take to accomplish this? This is a time for you to take action towards your comfort and your emotional and physical stability, and that of the ones under your care.

Then at 4:13am EST, that same day, we make way for Taurus Season, shining a light on your creative nature. You’re not here to stay quiet and in line. You’re not here to fulfill the expectations that society holds of you. Your wild nature isn’t a flaw. It actually holds so many talents and potentials. Your creative fire could never be a limitation for your well-being. Your desires aren’t a nuisance. This Season is shining a light on your passions and the sacred space that is available in allowing yourself to be playful, to connect with your inner child, and to come into your pleasure. 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 honor your self-expression.
