Happy April, Scorpio. Did you recover from the lawless lunar eclipse during March? Just barely? Well, there's another eclipse this month, but if you give yourself a break, you'll be just fine. A transformative Taurus season awaits, packed with personal evolution and love and support in your relationships, culminating in your ruling planet Mars firing up your ambitions (and ability to make things happen) at the end of the month.

Monday, April 1 marks the start of Mercury retrograde in Aries, bringing the usual travel delays, arrival of exes sliding into your DMS, and an annoying craving to be the one to reach out, especially if you're exhausted and making poor decisions. Scorpio, you're known for your intensity, but pushing yourself to the brink of exhaustion serves no one, especially not you. Heed the stars' advice: Kindness towards yourself during this retrograde is not just beneficial; it's essential. Slowing down now means you'll ultimately accomplish more (and invoke fewer cringe moments).

By Thursday, April 4 Venus, ruler of beauty, glides into Aries and your health domain, echoing the call for gentleness. Venus wants you to prioritize rest and self-care. Whether it’s investing in comfortable sleepwear or exploring a spring beauty refresh, the emphasis is on nurturing yourself. Consider this period an invitation to lounge luxuriously.

The Monday, April 8 new moon and solar eclipse in fiery Aries we already warned you about intensifies the need for self-care. You may find yourself feeling particularly drained around this time. Scorpio, allow this cosmic event to be your cue to disconnect and recharge. Embracing simplicity, like savoring a cup of tea or wine in the comfort of your home, and watching TV or reading a cozy book, can be profoundly restorative.

As the sign of transformation, no one does a makeover quite like Scorpio. Friday, April 19 marks the start of Taurus season, which heralds a period ripe for a makeover, either minor or major. The sun in Taurus encourages you to experiment with your style and to embrace the continuous journey of self-evolution, particularly through the relationships you cherish and nurture. This means that while the next few weeks are ideal for playing with spring makeup and even opting for a piercing or injectables, you will also find that changes are afoot in your favorite partnerships. As a fixed sign, while you're good at style evolution, allowing transformation within your relationships can be tougher for you. Your Taurus season assignment is to look cute and let partnerships run their natural course.

People know that Scorpio is the sign of sex, but sleep on the fact that your hardest breakups or relationship ups and downs are those with friends. On Sunday, April 21, Juno, the “asteroid of commitment,” ends its retrograde and goes direct, bringing the potential for a heartwarming reunion with a long-lost friend. Just make sure to put extra care into communication as you reconnect, since Mercury is still retrograde.

Other than the eclipse, one of the most important days of the month comes on Tuesday, April 23, which brings a full moon in your sign, Scorpio, amplifying your natural intensity and propensity for introspection. While this lunation may stir some paranoia, it also opens a powerful portal for manifestation. Mark this date; the universe might just deliver on a long-held desire.

This transit invites you to bring the calmer, more centered version of yourself that you've been curating all month into your relationships.

Thankfully, Thursday, April 25, sees Mercury retrograde end. Travel becomes less fraught, communication clears up, and a general sense of relief permeates the air. Remember, Scorpio, unless it's one of those rare cases where friendship is possible, don't create more drama for yourself by reaching out to an ex, at least not before Mercury is direct and you've thought it through.

Then, on Monday, April 29, Venus moves into Taurus shifting the focus from self-care to deeper interpersonal connections. This transit invites you to bring the calmer, more centered version of yourself that you've been curating all month into your relationships, enriching them with newfound tranquility and depth. You do have a calm center beneath the turmoil, you just must accept that your high maintenance tendency is a pro, not a con. Finally, the month wraps with one of your ruling planets, Mars, moving into Aries, which is also ruled by the warrior planet, on Tuesday, April 30. For those in the dating scene, beware that this energy is super horny. Mars also lends its passionate energy to your professional ambitions, making it an opportune time to pursue advancements, including that well-deserved raise. Don't forget the self-care, and we'll see you in May.
