Happy solar return, Aries! Your birthday season is here: The sun is in your sign and you’re feeling reinvigorated and excited to take on the next year!
Your intuition is especially sharp as Mercury, the planet of the mind, moves through sensitive water sign Pisces. You’re having some deep conversations as on April 2 as Mercury connects with the planet of the underworld, Pluto, which is currently in Capricorn. Secrets may be shared, as Mercury is the planet of information and Pluto of hidden things. Mercury enters your sign, Aries, on April 3, putting you in a chattier mood—you may have been shy or quiet while Mercury was in day-dreamy Pisces, but not anymore!
On April 6, Venus (currently in your sign) connects with your ruling planet Mars in Gemini, creating a fun atmosphere that’s fantastic for flirtatious banter! Some sweet messages may be exchanged. Your ruling planet Mars squares off with hazy Neptune on April 9, which could make for a very lazy energy. Let yourself rest! But do be mindful of shadiness, deception, or people shrugging off things that deserve more attention—this probably isn’t the best day for an important conversation!
A more supportive energy flows around communication on April 10 when Mercury connects with stable Saturn in Aquarius, encouraging a grounded, responsible mindset. Venus also connects with lucky Jupiter in Aquarius on this day, which bodes well for your social life! You’re feeling especially popular, and it’s a great time to network. Jupiter is all about growth and expansion, and you’re meeting tons of friends as it moves through social air sign Aquarius—plus, its connection with charming Venus boosts your popularity!
The new moon in Aries arrives on April 11: This is a brilliant time for a makeover! A fresh start in how you present yourself to the world and in your relationships is here—but take it slow as Venus also clashes with Pluto, urging us to take a sensitive approach to things. Themes like envy or jealousy may come up, but this is also a powerful time to set boundaries. Be honest with yourself about what makes you feel uncomfortable: Don’t settle for things just because you want to be easy to get along with…or worse, because you’re afraid of someone else’s bad temper! Bring in the help of a third party, and use the energy of this new moon to create a fresh start in your life.
