On April 2nd, Jupiter is conjunct Pluto in the sign of Capricorn. Jupiter rules expansion and abundance, and Pluto rules rebirth—this is a favorable alignment for these times. Pluto has a tendency to make things unrecognizable to what they once were, but Jupiter makes the landing a lot softer and more positive for everyone. This month, it is important to consider and celebrate the things that bring us joy, even in a time of heartbreak, loss, and rebirth (which is always messy). On the 19th, the sun moves from Aries to Taurus. The world slows down with the sun in Taurus: things are more methodical, clear, and thoroughly understood. Taurus energy asks that we get comfortable—make sure during this season to prioritize luxury. Add bubbles to a bath, sleep in, chill hard.
Making money and having worth are totally different things. This month there are a lot of lessons to be learned about how impactful you, your work, and your path are to the world around you. On the 11th, Mercury enters your sign, which will be a perfect time to listen for and share your philosophy. So Aries, what do you believe in?
Often for your sign, discomfort equals growth. There is always something to be learned from being uncomfortable, so this month look for these lessons. They start just as the month does. Venus spends April in your second house: pay attention to where you feel insecure or vulnerable in your love life. These vulnerabilities, handled with intention, can change your love life (for the better or worse).
Venus spends the entire month in your sign, and next month will be retrograde in your sign. This is a profound time for your love life—a lot of clarity around feelings, direction, and interest are happening this month. If you have been uncertain about anything in your relationships, now is the time to approach them with fresh eyes.
On the second of this month, Pluto and Jupiter are conjunct in opposition to your sign. The massive shifts your life has been going through over the last year will finally have some silver linings with this conjunction. Pay close attention for opportunities to expand—promotions, moving, and growth in your relationships, for example. A positive direction is coming!
The 6th house of the astrological wheel rules daily life. Work, home, health—all of these themes fall into this category, as you are living them day-to-day. This month, there is a propellant in this house. The growth is yours to control. If you want to move in a positive direction in your work, health, or home, now is an incredible time to do it in leaps and bounds.
This month, Venus (the planet of love and compassion) lands in your house of public identity. This has the potential to create a lot of attention toward everything you do—which is not necessarily your most comfortable state. Consider this: given a pedestal, what do you want to represent? On the 7th, the full moon will bring unexpected money into your life: buy a scratch off!
A home and house produce different feelings—do you feel at home where you are? What do you need to do to deepen this feeling or change completely? If you have been meaning to invest in your space (time-wise or monetarily) this is a good time to do it. There is also a theme this month of connecting to motherhood on a spiritual level. Regardless of whether or not you are a mom, this will deepen your understanding of mothering.
On the 19th of this month, the sun moves into a square with your sign, challenging you to make decisions that may be hard, but are for the best. This illumination from the sun will show you things you didn’t know; and with new knowledge, the choices you need to make will be clearer. On the 7th, there is a full moon in your house of spirituality. Make sure you make the most of it by worshipping in your favorite way.
Jupiter, your ruling planet, will be in conjunction to Pluto on the second of this month in your house of worth. This happens once every 13 years. This has the potential to align your money with your passion and boost your self-esteem in ways that will change the course of your life for years to come. Do you believe that you are worthy? This will show you that are, and then some.
On the second of this month, Jupiter is conjunct Pluto exactly. This will happen a couple more times this year at an exact degree, and it is a perfect time to reap some of the benefits of change that has been happening in your life over the last couple years. Until the 10th of this month, Mercury is in your house of communication, which will bring a long-awaited message to you that will clarify the parts of your life that feel hazy.
As this month unfolds, please repeat—as many times as you need it—that knowledge is power. The lessons that are coming for you this month will be transformative. You may want to do something immediately with what you learn, but the stars urge you to absorb and thoroughly digest the information this month before making any decisions about what to do. Take time.
Jupiter is conjunct Pluto this month in your house of community and friendship. There are some profound lessons coming for you around how important it is to take care, and allow yourself to be taken care of. Name the things you need to the people you share the world with, and you will receive them. This is a time to feel the surge of energy from a crowd of people deeply believing in you.
