Key themes: stepping out of your comfort zone, doing more things that uplift your sense of self-worth, recognizing what you bring to the table, not giving more than what you can or want to give, tapping into your body and its needs.
Dear Virgo, 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 daily rituals and routines. Make sure to keep an eye on and take good care of your health.
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 intimate relationships. You want real commitment, profound connections, and you’re ready to show up for it. This requires your vulnerability.
The month of April begins with Mercury stepping out of Aries and settling into Taurus on the 3rd, in your area of adventure and philosophical pursuits. You may find yourself re-examining your intellectual and academic foundations and expanding your ideas with new knowledge. Defy the notion that knowledge can only be passed down through institutions. Go to the sources, have the experiences.
The Full Moon in Libra happens on the 6th at 12:34 am EST, shining a light on your finances and sense of self-worth. If you’re going through it, the best way to deal with anxiety is to be softer with yourself than what you think you need to be. Gentle motivation will go so much further than ordering and bossing yourself around. Be intentional about cultivating the kind of home within yourself that feels welcoming.
On the 11th, Venus, the planet of love, will enter the connection seeking sign of Gemini. Your natural humility may be challenged as you may find yourself in the spotlight, encouraged to showcase your talents and accomplishments. As a sign known for your hard work and attention to detail, you may prefer to let your efforts speak for themselves, but Venus is here to remind you that it’s okay to show off what you’ve worked so hard and lovingly for. Update your portfolio and social media presence in order to properly let your brilliance shine through.
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 shared resources, you may receive insights and innovative solutions for your financial life. It’ll be a good time to check in on any debt that has been weighing you down, and to reassess your budget, investments, and financial goals. With Jupiter’s influence, you may feel overly optimistic about your financial situation, so make sure your decisions are grounded in reality.
Then at 4:13 am EST, that same day, we make way for Taurus Season, and you may start to feel a strong sense of commitment to going your own way. You know that this path is essential for your health and well-being, as well as for the greater good of all involved. But are you determined to embrace it? Trust your intuition. The future is unknown. Your next move only needs to feel like the next right step. Life is a journey of small advancements and setbacks, and the path to where you are meant to go unfolds slowly over time. So take it step by step, in the present, without trying to control the future. 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 step into your own path.
