Key themes: having intimate conversations, allowing yourself space to be alone and quiet, not giving into manipulation, getting things done, resting to renew your energy levels, being open and honest with the ones you love.

Dear Scorpio, 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 home, family members, nurturing practices, and your connection to your roots and traditions.

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 creative self-expression and romantic experiences. It’s time to bring more intention to your passions and what you want to indulge in.

The month of April begins with Mercury stepping out of Aries and settling into Taurus on the 3rd in your area of partnerships and commitments. You may find yourself feeling a renewed sense of appreciation for the simple act of connection. Engaging with all of your senses can lead you to revolutionize your one-on-one relationships in both subtle and impactful ways. Practice being fully present and embodied in your conversations. Take advantage of this energy to have any conversations you’ve been postponing.

The Full Moon in Libra happens on the 6th at 12:34 am EST, shining a light on your unconscious nature, and asking you to wind down for a moment. No matter what is pressing you, find your way to the spaces of downtime that you’ve got access to. Renew yourself in the healing potential of stillness. Use this time to dream up different ways to work through your daily duties and routines if you find they’re feeling too draining. Take good care of yourself. Don’t let others push you into what you don’t want to do.

On the 11th, Venus, the planet of love, will enter the connection seeking sign of Gemini. You may find yourself navigating a healing journey, joint venture, or financial exchange that requires a gentler and more understanding approach. While it may feel vulnerable to share yourself with others, try reframing your love affairs and collaborations as a space of learning, mutual fascination, or even a game, one of deep but lighthearted exploration. You’re familiar with the complexities of human experience. Trust in your ability to navigate challenging situations with grace and ease.

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 it happens in your area of health and daily routines, this eclipse is here to remind you that you cannot pour from an empty cup. In order for you to be a support system for the ones in your life, you’ve got to make sure you’re being fed as well. Don’t be afraid to decline invitations or delay plans if you need rest or time to take care of yourself. Check in on your daily habits. Begin to make the changes that will bring more well-being to your life.

Then at 4:13am EST, that same day, we make way for Taurus Season, shining a light on your one-on-one relationships. As you come to terms with the fact that no one can make everything alright for you, honor the relationships that help remind you what has always been right about yourself. The ones who love you so fiercely that your heart can’t help but open up. The ones whose ability to care for the bond you share is so steady, that just being with them can calm your anxiety. The ones whose love is so freeing, it makes space to set yourself free. Make space for these confidants, learn from them about how to love yourself even more deeply. 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 be there for yourself and for the ones you’re ready to recommit to.
