Welcome to April, Aries. Last month marked the beginning of your season, an invigorating time that reminded you how much you love being the first child of the zodiac. However, as we segue into Taurus's earthy domain this month, the tranquil vibes risk disruption thanks to a solar eclipse in your sign. This celestial phenomenon signals a period of profound personal transformation (it also occurs during Mercury retrograde), but if you follow our star-approved advice, April brings plenty of opportunities to get ahead with love (and even potentially make some cash).

Yup, it's a great time to treat yourself to a social media break, as Mercury's retrograde journey starts on Monday, April 1. With Mercury retreating in your sign, Aries, your communication requires extra caution. Your words may inadvertently sharpen. Your friends love that you're not a sycophant and will always tell them the truth, but when Mercury is retrograde, it's harder to discern when to bite your tongue and show some diplomacy. You'll also want to prepare for the typical retrograde chaos, such as travel hiccups and digital snafus, aka accidentally liking your partner's ex's IG post from five years ago. Stay ahead of the drama by simply logging off.

By Thursday, April 4, pretty Venus stations in your sign, Aries, offering an extra dose of confidence, which could play to your favor both when it comes to getting attention within romantic relationships as well as at work. It's an opportune moment to ask someone out, tell your friends or partner how awesome they are, or negotiate a raise. Remember, while Venus's presence is fortuitous, astrology is constricted by capitalism, but it's still beneficial to know what days, such as this one, are monetarily blessed.

The new moon and solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, may indeed leave you feeling on edge. Eclipses are powerful, anxious things. But you can use this energy to your advantage. Solar eclipses often herald a realization of our deeper desires, urging us to invite the universe to fulfill them. Set intentions to channel this potent energy, even if it's in a journal (actually, this analog option sounds perfect). When the eclipse energy clears, and the sun moves into Taurus on Friday, April 19, you can begin your plot to manifest them. Yes, the sun leaves your sign, but it also moves into your 2nd House of Possessions. Taurus season, a luxurious earth sign, is ideal for cultivating financial stability.

The full moon in Scorpio on Tuesday, April 23, stirs the emotional waters of your transformative 8th House. Full moons are primal, and Scorpio is spooky and sexy. You'll likely either feel mega turned on around this date or totally repulsed by the idea of physical contact. Take time to meditate and check in with yourself to see what you need. While full moons aren't as intense as eclipses, they can still leave you feeling burnt out if you don't prioritize your needs and erect boundaries.

You're allowed to be greedy during Taurus season.

And, phew! Mercury goes direct in your sign on Thursday, April 25. Everyone feels a little calmer now, so feel free to unleash your bold personality on everyone who appreciates it. As Venus leaves Aries to grace Taurus on Monday, April 29, your attention is drawn once more to material gains and self-care. Yes, it's moving out of your sign but, just like the sun, it's now stationed in your opulent 2nd House, which calls for decadence. As Venus also rules beauty, this transit gives you the star's approval to invest in new makeup, sleep in, or just watch TV in your coziest loungewear, really whatever makes you feel pretty and cozy. Taurus season, especially when Venus is also in Taurus, is all about feeling comfortable.

Concluding the month on a powerful note, your ruling planet, the fighter Mars, enters your sign, Aries, on Tuesday, April 30. There's been a lot of talk about asking for raises, setting intentions, and expressing your feelings. With the warrior planet now in your sign, you'll get another shot of self-confidence. Here's a quick spell: Put a dab of honey on your tongue; honey sweetens your words. That witchy tip coupled with the courage that Mars in your sign brings means there's no better time to ask for (and we sincerely hope, get), what you want, whether it's a date, alone time, better work/life balance, a raise, or all of the above. You're allowed to be greedy during Taurus season. Enjoy, and we'll see you next month.
