Happy April, Virgo. During March, your horoscope asked you to lean into beauty and self-care rituals. As this month brings Mercury retrograde and a chaotic eclipse, it's best to continue heeding this advice. Starting Monday, April 1, Mercury retrograde in Aries begs you to navigate interactions with sensitivity. Whether you're spending time with a romantic partner, friends, or both, misunderstandings are likely. Remember, Virgo, not to take miscommunications to heart. Offering the benefit of the doubt can maintain harmony during these astrologically turbulent times. Assume that the people who love you have your best interest in mind. Additionally, minimizing screen time and social media use could ease the edginess this retrograde brings. Since Mercury is your ruling planet, you tend to be affected by these backward dances more than other signs.

On Thursday, April 4, sweet Venus enters Aries and shines a cosmic glow on your relationships. Despite the retrograde's confusion, this Venus transit gives you plenty of love and attention. If you're feeling on edge, try to pause and relax before firing off a text message, as you don't want to disrupt the good vibes with Mercury retrograde-fueled paranoia.

You may feel particularly on edge on Monday, April 8. On this date, there's a new moon and solar eclipse in Aries, which presents a cosmic wildcard. With Mercury still in retrograde, our earlier advice remains prudent: log off and give yourself permission to retreat, continuing to relax and recharge. Social media might feel extra stressful around this time, so it's an excellent excuse to take a break.

You'll be busy with IRL activities anyways once Taurus season kicks off on Friday, April 19, shifting your focus to spiritual growth and the acquisition of new skills. This is an invitation to explore hobbies outside of work, recognizing the value of your spiritual and creative pursuits — they are essential to your personal development. The next few weeks will likely see you learning a new skill set, whether it's baking, perfecting your makeup routine, or even studying a religion that's different from the one you grew up with.

On Sunday, April 21, Juno, the “asteroid of commitment,” goes direct in your sign, Virgo, enhancing the depth of your relationships, both romantic and platonic. As your partnerships level up, make sure to nurture such growth by expressing your love and appreciation for the people in question. There is a night that's best spent alone: Tuesday, April 23, during the dramatic full moon in intense Scorpio. Consider this lunation cosmic PMS. Rest and self-care are your allies. Indulge in beauty rituals or whatever practices help you manage stress. Scorpio is the sign of transformation, so the vibe will be chaotic. It's best to channel your energy into experimenting with beauty rituals rather than risk playing with people's hearts.

Part of your signature perfectionism can manifest as anxiety, so anything to reduce stress is a valuable skill set.

And, phew. Thursday, April 25, marks the end of Mercury retrograde, paving the way for clearer communication and reduced misunderstandings. Then, as loving Venus enters Taurus on Monday, April 29, you should continue to notice evolution and positive change within your relationships, but with fewer misunderstandings. Learning to pause before firing off an agitated text and reducing time on social media are valuable practices even when your ruling planet is direct. Part of your signature perfectionism can manifest as anxiety, so anything to reduce stress is a valuable skill set.

The month comes to a close with fighter Mars moving into its home sign of Aries on Tuesday, April 30. Mars is associated with sex, so when it's stationed in a sign it is happy in, like Aries, this means that romance is able to evolve in tandem with sex. Basically, if you're hooking up with someone and not sure where it's going, especially now that Juno is direct, that passion will couple with long-term potential. If such dating advice doesn't apply to you, Mars in Aries provides great energy for getting ahead at work. Enjoy Mercury direct, and we'll see you in May, Virgo.
