Get your engines revving… Aries Season is here to catapult us into a new round of passion projects! ✨
We kick off April with the Sun moving through ♈️ Aries, the very first sign of the zodiac, for most of this month. Aries is bold, impulsive, and assertive when it comes to chasing their passions in life, and we are all going to get swept up in its fiery flurry as we become inspired to start new projects and jump into exciting new endeavors until April 20th. The New Moon in Aries on April 5/6th will be the ideal time to plant seeds for the ideas you’d like to blossom into being over the next 6 months.
We also have some pretty heavy energy coming in this month. “April showers bring May flowers?” That’s what they say, anyway. With Pluto aligning with the South Node of Past Karma early in the month, followed by Saturn aligning with the South Node later in the month, there is a lot of facing of shadows needing to happen both collectively and on a personal level as we question the status quo and the foundations that are no longer supporting us in our lives or careers while also working on clearing old karma and past life drama so we can live life as our best & brightest selves and step up as the leaders we were born to be.
Neither Pluto or Saturn are shy when it comes to forcing us to let go of the past or who we are no longer meant to be and there may be some tough lessons to learn unless you are ready and willing to release old habits, patterns, low vibe energies, or ways of being that are no longer supporting you in your quest toward your greatest potential.
Throughout this month, Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn will also be going into retrograde as part of their annual cycle. Lasting between 4-5 months, these retrograde periods will ask us to go over the information on what we have already been learning this year and decide what the best way will be to work with what we’ve already got rather than continually seeking new horizons or overwhelming ourselves with constant change.
And finally, the Full Moon in Libra on April 19th brings us the second Full Moon in Libra in a row and another chance to revise and assess the state of our work/life balance. Are you taking good care of yourself, your relationships, your schedule? Which areas of your life are hitting an off-note in the symphony of your life and how can you bring them down or up an octave to bring about a better sound (or… feeling)?
How will these cosmic influences be affecting your life + career specifically? Find out by reading your Career Scope for April below…

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)
Oh, happy day! Whether you were born during this month or you’re an Aries Rising, it’s your month to rise & shine. You’re usually the type to be an idea machine, but this month you may be feeling like taking things to a whole new level as the Sun moves through your sign up until April 20th. The New Moon on April 5/6th, in particular, is like your own personal new year. What intentions or resolutions will you set to make this next year of your life & career even more magical and magnificent than the last?
The biggest news of this month, however, is coming from heavy hitting planets Pluto & Saturn as they touch base with the South Node of Past Karma in your 10th house of Career & Higher Calling. If you’ve been constantly seeking the next goal post without stopping to reward yourself, this trio will be forcing you to ask yourself, “Can you learn to enjoy your life without feeling like you always need to be achieving more & more in your work to be deemed worthy?” This long-lasting event will give you plenty of time to shine a light on your shadows so you can bring your fears around not being worthy of success to a close and allow a new day to dawn where you value your own personal growth above your social standing or how good you might look “on paper”.
Later, a Full Moon in Libra will be rising up, yet again, in your Relationship zone on April 19th. This is yet another chance for you to ask yourself where things have gotten off track or perhaps are not feeling quite right between you and others who are close to you. Do you need to ask for help, or be the one to offer it? With your ruling planet Mars swooping through your Social Networking sector for the next several weeks, being clear about what’s on your mind – and being willing to listen – can take you very, very far. If you see clients 1-on-1, you may also want to explore new ways to make the process of working with you even more fun, exciting, or enjoyable for both parties.
TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)
Regardless of where you live in the world – or which season is just coming in – this is prime time for hibernation mode for you, dear Taurus. It might feel weird to hear about the themes of Aries season (excitement! passion! renewal!) and then realize that you are not really sure about any of those things at the moment. That’s because the Sun is moving through your deep mystical zone of Spiritual Pursuits for most of this month, and that means it’s time for you to take a step back and look at your life & work from a new perspective. What are you really here to do and how can you do more of it? How have you been holding yourself back from shining brighter as your best self? The New Moon in Aries on April 5/6th is a beautiful time to send a wish out to the universe to help you bring more meaning, purpose, and magic into your experience of life.
On top of all of this, the South Node of Past Karma is being activated as it moves through your 9th house of Travel, Education, & Self-Discovery both by transformational Pluto and our strict teacher Saturn all throughout April and into May. If you have had escapist tendencies lately or have wanted to run away from whatever you feel you “should” or are “supposed to” be doing, there will be a lot of healing to be done around this shadow. Your challenge for this year is actually to figure out how you can come together with more like-minded people to share what you have to offer, rather than hoard it all away to yourself. How can you do this while still keeping your life fun, interesting, and invigorating along the way?
Finally, this month’s Full Moon in Libra, your fellow Venus-ruled sign, will be illuminating the magic in your Daily Work & Wellness sector on the 19th. Where has your day-to-day life gotten off track and what can you do to bring more peace, harmony, and joy into your daily process of living and working in a way that makes you feel calm, happy, and well-supported? Perhaps a new health routine, a better sleep schedule, or streamlined work processes could do the trick…
GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)
Step away from solo work mode and get out into the world, Gemini! For most of this month, the Sun is streaming through your zone of Community & Friendship. What can you do to connect with more people in an authentic way that is fun for you and helpful to others? Whether this means volunteering your time or finding ways to up-level your marketing strategies to provide more free value to your audience online, the New Moon in Aries on April 5/6th is an amazing time to tell the universe how you would like to strengthen your connections with the people around you in order to make your world – and theirs – a better, more fulfilling place.
At the same time, there will be some fear to uncover and let go of as the South Node of Past Karma receives heavy pressure from Pluto & Saturn in your 8th house of Business & Finance. Do you feel like you need to work really, really hard to achieve the things you want in life – like financial security? The universe is trying to show you there could be – and is – a better way. What would change or open up for you if you realized you were totally worthy of success – and that the process of welcoming it into your life could be fun, easy, and fast?
An Airy Full Moon will be hitting exact fullness in your Fun & Creativity sector on the 19th. This is the second month in a row and it gives you the opportunity to properly capitalize on any creative projects you’ve been working on or perhaps to realize what you could do to bring in more opportunities for fun & creativity in your life and work in the future. Now that Mercury Retrograde is over, your ideas may be clearer and you will be less led astray by pie-in-the-sky schemes and better able to make realistic decisions around what you want & what you can do to make it happen.
CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)
Rumor has it you’re ready to take things to the next level in your career… maybe that’s because the Sun is pumping up the volume in your Career & Higher Calling sector until April 20th! This is one of the best times of the year for you to get serious about making a bigger impact and allowing yourself to be seen on a greater level through your work in a way that’s enjoyable, fun, and interesting to you. The New Moon in Aries on April 5/6th is your time to dream big about your career goals and let the Universe in on your plans for world domination so it can help deliver you the magical opportunities you’ve been seeking.
Meanwhile, with Pluto & Saturn crossing over the South Node of Past Karma, there may be a tendency to put others’ needs above your own since both of these heavy-hitting planets will be bringing a lot of pressure to your 7th house of Relationships & 1-on-1 work. As a Cancer, you already have trouble going overboard when it comes to helping others before you help yourself – you know this already – so the purpose of this period for breakthroughs and release will be to remind you that, when you hold the steering wheel to your life and you put your needs first, you’ll actually end up being able to help more people on a bigger level and in a more efficient manner.
April’s Full Moon in Libra is, once again, lighting up your zone of Home, Family & Long-term Security as it calls upon you to make sure your home feels like your own personal haven, your relationships with others feel warm and fulfilling, and your savings account is receiving deposits on a consistent basis. It can also illuminate any imbalances within these areas, like identifying a hole leaking water from your boat, so you can easily see where things need to be improved for a better time safely sailing the seas of your beautiful life.
LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)
Okay, Leo, let’s explore! There is so much out there in this big, amazing world, and with the Sun jetting through your zone of Travel, Education & Self-Discovery for most of April, your body, mind & spirit are ready for some new adventures. Perhaps you’ll think about taking a course (or teaching one!), planning a trip to a faraway land, or delving into a new area of study you have been curious about pursuing for a while. The New Moon on April 5/6th is the ideal time to send your intentions out into the universe around how you’d like to expand your horizons into new territory next.
In other news, there may be a lot of feelings and perhaps emotional weirdness to unravel when it comes to how well you are managing your time & energy on a day to day basis as both Pluto & Saturn gang up on the South Node of Past Karma in your 6th house of Daily Work & Wellness for weeks to come. Are you taking good enough care of your body? Are you organizing your hours efficiently while still leaving room to be kind to yourself? By giving yourself the TLC you need, you’ll be able to streamline those mundane daily details so you can free yourself up to focus more of your mojo on the bigger purpose or mission you’re here to achieve.
As we begin sliding toward the end of this month, the second Full Moon in Libra in a row will be lighting up your Social Networking sector – again. This is another chance to revise the list of people you’d like to collaborate with and make sure you are surrounding yourself with others who inspire and uplift you while also allowing YOU to get across the message that you are truly here to share, too.
VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)
We’re heading into a new financial quarter now which makes it an especially good time to run your numbers and see how you’re really measuring up to your yearly income goal. As scary as it may or may not be, with the Sun moving through your 8th house of Business & Finance for most of this month, it’s a good idea to make working on your budget and strategizing some fresh ideas to boost your bottom line your main mission! The New Moon in Aries on April 5/6th is the perfect time for dreaming big about your earnings and imagining what it would feel like to earn the amount you need to feel securely settled so the Universe can meet you halfway to help make it real.
One of the big themes of growth for you for this whole year is around focusing on what your community needs so you can do your part to serve & deliver. So, when the South Node of Past Karma becomes activated by heavy-hitting planets Pluto and Saturn in your 5th house of Creativity throughout this month, you may need to take a closer look at your creative project ideas and reconsider the ones you’re doing merely for your own pleasure so you can focus on the ones that are more centered around contributing to resolving collective needs.
With the Full Moon in Libra falling in your zone of Values, Desires & Goal Setting, a goal you’ve made in the past could finally be well within your reach to achieve. At the same time, it’s a good idea to do a check-up on what your current goals really are and how they match up with your deeper values in life. As humans, it’s easy for us to change our minds often because we’re always evolving and growing, and that’s good! Just make sure you’re on the same page with your goals so your to-do list will reflect what you truly want to happen rather than just avoiding what you don’t.
LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)
You are in your element this month as the Sun moves through your Relationship zone until April 20th. As the sign of beauty, balance, and harmony, your job for these next few weeks is to find a way to strengthen your close connections with others around you in a way that will make both parties feel good. Whether we’re talking about communicating your needs better within a romantic partnership or updating the terms of agreement within your 1-on-1 working relationships, the New Moon in Aries on April 5/6th is your cue to call out your order to the universe to help you create more peace in your partnerships, or even to welcome the right one in to bring you greater support so you don’t feel like you have to do everything all on your own.
The biggest cosmic event in April revolves around the South Node of Past Karma which is currently streaming through your Home, Family & Long-term Security sector while it is in Capricorn for the next year plus. When Pluto & Saturn take turns crossing over this point this month, there may be some old issues on the homefront to take care of and release, potentially bringing up old wounds, fears, or worries it is now finally time to clear out. As hard as it may be, since these two planets do NOT play around, the beauty of this is that the Universe’s intention is to help you step into greater alignment with your higher calling which you’ll be freed up to do so much more of after you take the time to clear out the cobwebs of your past.
Finally, on the 19th, a Full Moon rises up once again in your sign for the second month in a row. This is an opportunity to take another look at how you are portraying yourself and your image out into the world. Are you being the true you? Are you behaving in line with your own needs & desires? Or have you been bending over backward too much to please others? The balance between you & others is a BIG theme this month, and this Full Moon will help you uncover what needs to be done to make sure you are getting a decent say in the way your life and work are run.
SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)
Do you feel like you’ve been running around like a crazy person far too much lately? Slow your roll, Scorpio! For most of this month, the Sun is shining down on your zone of Daily Work & Wellness as it helps you assess all of the different moving parts of your life & work so you can arrange them into a situation and put all of the puzzle pieces in place in a way that feels more pleasing and supportive for you. Whether you know you need to work on improving your self-care, re-organizing your schedule, putting together a more effective to-do list writing routine, focusing on productivity hacks, or simply not piling so dang much on your plate to begin with, the New Moon in Aries on April 5/6th is the time to tell the Universe what exactly you intend to do so it can help move you along toward your dreamiest daily lifestyle.
With the South Node of Past Karma becoming the primary target for two of the solar system’s toughest planets, one of them being your ruler Pluto & the other being the strict teacher planet Saturn (all of which are ganging up in your Social Networking sector), there may be extra pressure put upon you to let go of any connections or collaborations you’ve been relying on too heavily. If you’ve been caring too much about what other people think or polling everyone and their mom about their opinion on your life or work, perhaps you’ll come to realize this month that you really do know MORE about what’s best for you than the rest of the peanut gallery – you just need to own it, respectfully yet assertively!
The Full Moon in Libra on the 19th will once again be illuminating your 12th house of Spiritual Pursuits. This is not an easy area to experience a Full Moon in back to back like this as it brings about a major time of emotional renewal and for purging limiting beliefs or any situations you’ve gotten yourself into that are not truly in alignment with what, deep down, you KNOW you were born to be, do, have, or experience. Feel it to heal it, and then let it go… all so that you can live a life that’s more in line with what matters to you on a soul level rather than get distracted by so-called practical limitations or fear.
SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)
Come on Sag, get out of your head and go have some fun! For most of April, the Sun is shimmering its fiery luminous light down on your zone of Fun & Creativity, making this amazing month to either start a fun passion project you’ve merely been toying with the idea of creating, or if you’ve already been working far too much, then put your work down and enjoy yourself more just for the sheer thrill of it! The New Moon in Aries on April 5/6th is a beautiful time to dream up new ways of letting your heart lighten up with fun activities and adventures you’d like to make more time to embark on over the next 6 months.
One of the big lessons that will be coming to the forefront this month, in addition to the above, has to do with letting go of old desires, wishes, or values that no longer suit the best and brightest version of you. With the South Node of Past Karma getting two major audits by both Pluto and Saturn, you are being asked to stop settling for less than what you really want just because, for whatever reason, you don’t believe you can actually have it. This goes for love, money, or things of beauty that would make your heart skip a beat – if only you opened yourself up to the idea that you really could be the type of person to have it.
In other news, this month’s Full Moon will be rising up, once again, in your zone of Community & Friendship on the 19th as it falls in Libra for the second time in a row. While last month’s Full Moon may have seen you beginning to look at your friendship circle – or online audience – with a more discerning eye, this one is more about looking at ways you can serve the right people in a more authentic way to who you really are and what you are the best at. With your ruling planet, Jupiter, heading into retrograde this month, you’ll be given an opportunity to sort through what you already know and have learned so you can unearth some gems of wisdom worth sharing on a wider scale with the people in your world.
CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)
Along with Aries Season comes a desire to spruce up – or maybe even spice up – your living & working quarters. As the Sun moves through your zone of Home, Family & Long-term Security for most of this month, you may also be dealing with some shifts within your family or perhaps even your savings plan. The true purpose of this time is to get clear on what you can do to feel more comfortable, grounded and happy within your life outside of work. You can use the New Moon in Aries to set long-term goals around what you would like to call into your reality to create a richer personal life for yourself and/or the ones you care about most!
Meanwhile, if you’re sensing a more serious vibe coming in, that’s because Pluto, Saturn, and the South Node of Past Karma are adding a lot of pressure to your sign as they encourage slash, let’s face it, FORCE you to let go of the past “you” and step into a new version of yourself that is more independent, assertive, and in control of your own destiny, so that you can show up from a more authentic place when it comes to your dealings with others, too. Luckily, you are strong enough to handle this, and may even gain a strange sense of satisfaction from being forced to let go of anything that has been working against your favor.
The Full Moon in Libra – the second in a row – will once again be illuminating your 10th house of Career & Higher Calling on the 19th. This is your second chance to ask yourself, “What is the legacy I want to leave behind?” As a Capricorn, you know better than anyone that time is a-tickin’. Why are you holding yourself back from making the bigger, more meaningful difference you were born to make? As Leonie Dawson says, “Your fears are boring!” Let go of the limiting beliefs and allow yourself to become known for doing something that actually feels super important to you in your work. The world is counting on you!
AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)
Find your tribe and show them you love them hard! With the Sun shining its way through your Social Networking sector for most of this month, you may be in the mood to socialize and share more of what’s on your mind either in person or online. The only thing is that, as an Aquarius, your mind is usually a million miles ahead of everyone else. How can you take a step back and make your message clearer or more concise so it will be easier for others to access and understand? The New Moon in Aries on April 5/6th will be excellent for plotting out a new marketing scheme, messaging strategy, or coming up with ways to uplevel your social media presence.
At the same time, with Pluto and Saturn joining up with the South Node of Past Karma in your zone of Spirituality & Mystical Pursuits, there is a lot of clearing out of old worries or fears to contend with this month, especially regarding your life purpose and what you feel you are here to do. You do know there is something bigger than you that your soul planned to accomplish down here, right? Let go of feelings of unworthiness so you can move forward and focus on setting yourself up to reach your version of success!
As we make our way nearer to the end of the month, our second Full Moon in Libra in a row will be illuminating your 9th house of Travel, Education & Self-Discovery. This can bring the culmination of an exploratory process you have been on for the past 6 months or perhaps even an affirmation of your wisdom and expertise. At the same time, you may be ready to let go of roads that have already been well-worn and traveled and prepare to seek out some new sights or subjects to get stuck into next to keep your mind sharp and mentally stimulated.
PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)
You’ve got to believe to receive, dear Pisces. This month, the Sun is jetting through your 2nd house of Values, Desires & Goal Setting as it asks you to get clear – and I mean really clear – on what you really want out of life deep down. Is it a certain amount of money? A feeling of love or admiration? To be surrounded by beauty? Whatever it is, don’t be shy in writing down your wish list on the New Moon in Aries on April 5/6th as this is prime time for amping up the volume on your next round of intentions. The first step to getting your desires out of your head and into the tangible world? Simply put pen to paper without censoring yourself or your most magnificent dreams.
One of the big lessons you’re meant to be learning this month, as Pluto & Saturn clashes their paths with the South Node of Past Karma, has to do with how you relate to your community and the world at large as it falls in your 11th house of Community & Friendship. In the past, you may have been prone to people pleasing and doing things so that you’ll be well-liked. However, a new day is dawning in which you tapping into your creativity, being vulnerable, and showing up just to share what holds a special spark for YOU may turn out to be even more effective in winning others’ hearts. Create what you want to see in the world, not so that other people will like you, but so that you will like IT.
Meanwhile, a Full Moon will be rising up on April 19th in your 8th house of Business & Finance. This being the second time the moon has graced this area, you are getting another chance to re-evaluate your money situation and figure out how to better organize your assets to deliver the return on investment that will make you feel most satisfied and secure. How can you re-imagine your offerings or invest your dollars more wisely? These are the big questions this Full Moon will be asking you to answer for yourself…
