Your April 2020 Horoscopes Are Here!

April is full of energy, and things are ready to move. If you’ve been caught in a rut or feeling stuck, the month ahead offers a much-needed boost of energy for all signs

Early spring is always a powerful opportunity to plant seeds in your life, so now is the time to think about the intentions, goals or routines you’re ready to work towards as the season unfolds.

The sun stays in Aries until mid-April. This fiery energy adds a faster pace to your daily schedule. Time might feel like it’s flying by, and unexpected plans can crop up at any moment. Stay open to spontaneity.

Things calm down a little when the sun moves into Taurus on Sunday, April 19. It can still be an incredible time to move forward with your goals, but Taurus also reminds you to stop and smell the roses along the way. It’s the perfect antidote to the hectic pace that Aries season can create.

Read on for your personal horoscope to help you make the most of April.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

It’s your time, Aries. Spring is your season, and inspiration is coming at you from every direction.

Life is lit up for you right now. Your creativity is running high and your charisma is off the charts, making April a key month for you to pitch a new idea at work, launch a fresh concept into the world or introduce yourself to a new group of friends.

It’s a welcome change of pace from the first few months of 2020, which had you in deep hibernation mode at times. People want to see you, and you’re ready to get back to your usual energetic self. Just make sure you don’t spread yourself too thin trying to do everything at once; if you pace yourself, you can really make something meaningful happen in April.

If you do one thing this month:

Connect with your community—make an effort to catch up with an inspiring friend or have coffee with a mentor.

Have you got money on your mind, Taurus? If not, it’s a big theme for you in April, so be ready to turn your focus over to your career, finances and self-worth.

The universe is nudging you to reflect on whether you’re being adequately compensated for all you do. Just be mindful that compensation doesn’t have to come in the form of money; respect, gratitude and recognition are all currency, too, and if someone isn’t paying up or reciprocating your efforts, it’s time to get that straightened out. Be clear about what you deserve. Are you underpaid or underappreciated? Reflect on where you feel you give more than you get, and make a plan to change that.

The Libra Full Moon on Tuesday, April 7, can help you clarify where you might be short-changing yourself or where you’re ready to level up in your personal or professional relationships.

If you do one thing this month: 

Ask for that raise, increase your rates or state your needs to ensure they’re met.

So far, it may feel like 2020 is taking you on a strange and unexpected journey. The hard part is figuring out what it’s all leading to. You’re being shown new possibilities, new ways of thinking and, perhaps most importantly, new ways of seeing yourself.

If you’ve been afraid to take the leap or embrace a new direction that’s been slowly emerging, April brings the boost of courage you need. Don’t be afraid to blaze your own trail right now, even if it means breaking free from what once felt like a sure bet. You’re ready to grow apart from an old identity, and once you let it happen, you’ll start to understand how everything has been leading up to this moment.

If you do one thing this month:  

Clear your head and think about your next steps. Check out a drop-in meditation class or a mindfulness workshop if it helps.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Stop letting everyone else make decisions for you, Cancer. April encourages you to take back your time and do something that’s just for you.

Your wanderlust is at an all-time high these days, and you’re probably feeling more restless than usual. You’re craving adventure and new experiences, and you’re not going to be satisfied if you keep putting everyone else’s plans and priorities ahead of your own. What you need this month is to experience something that is just for you, with no distractions or compromises involved. 

Give in to your cravings. Book that vacation, take some time off or break away from whatever is keeping you stuck in a loop. Your soul needs to recharge.

If you do one thing this month: 

If you can’t make a great escape right now, dive into a new book or take an online course to help satisfy your need for experiences that you can call your own.

All eyes are on you this month, Leo, especially on the career front. Speak with clarity, power and purpose, because people are listening—and you have some wise words to offer right now. You might be asked to take that new intern under your wing at work, or an important contact might tag you for a project for which you have that “it” factor they’re looking for.

Mid-month, when the sun slides into Taurus, your ambition gets ramped up and you’re ready to bring even more focus and determination to your career. If you’re vying for a bigger role or ready for more visibility, this is a time to invest the energy and make the right impressions.

If you do one thing this month:

Create a vision board or write a letter that depicts the life you want to be living a year from now. 

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

The first half of April has you removing your rose-tinted glasses when it comes to a less-than-ideal situation. Are you waiting for someone—or something—to change? It’s one thing to exercise patience, but you also have to be realistic with yourself. People can spend a long time waiting for a job to get better or for a lacklustre relationship to finally feel right.

This month, the universe is trying to tell you to stop wasting your precious time on things that don’t fuel you. If you’re feeling drained of time, energy or patience, it’s time to move on to bigger, more beautiful things. Don’t be afraid to admit that something isn’t working. Mid-month gives you the courage, confidence and clarity you need to take that step toward whatever is more worthy of your attention.

If you do one thing this month: 

Be honest with yourself. Make a list of what’s working for you right now and what isn’t going exactly as planned—yet. Identify one step you can take to improve a challenging situation.

April has you feeling more determined than ever to live a meaningful life. It’s not uncommon for Librans to want to make a difference in the world. You might find yourself feeling inspired to sign up for a course that will give you the tools you need to improve the lives of others, or you might finally be ready to invest in your art, ideas or business plans.

For Librans who are already living their passions, April sees you ready to step up your game in terms of what you’re putting out there. Start sharing the knowledge you have so that you can inspire others. How? By teaching a workshop, writing an inspiring blog post or showcasing your work to the public. You have so much to share and can really make an impact this spring.

If you do one thing this month:

The Libra full moon on Tuesday, April 7, gives you an opportunity to reflect on your sense of purpose. Ask yourself how you can make more time to do the things that matter most to you.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You’re feeling particularly rebellious these days, Scorpio. You might even want to rebel against yourself right now, especially when it comes to things you’re holding on to that no longer feel relevant to who you are today.

April brings you sudden urges to clean out your closet and get rid of any knick-knacks that are collecting dust around your home or workspace. Things you once held dear have lost their appeal, and you’re craving new talismans that better represent the person you are becoming.

This month, the universe encourages you to let go of the parts of the past that you no longer want to hold space for. Clear away anything that represents old stories that you’re ready to break away from. 

If you do one thing this month: 

Host a clothing swap or yard sale, or enlist some pals to help you haul off some old treasures to your local charity shop. 

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Give yourself permission to think big this month, Sagittarius—you are dreaming up something powerful and important. The stars are encouraging you to look deeply into your heart’s desires. Don’t worry if you feel a bit untethered by the process—you may need to take a step back from your usual life this month if you’re really going to commit to your greater visions.

It’s okay if you need to turn down an invitation or two if it means saving your energy for what you really want to be focusing on these days. Own your intentions and protect your time accordingly. Whatever your sights are set on right now, the stars encourage you to follow through.

If you do one thing this month:

Commit to whatever it is you need to accomplish: Launch that side business, write that book proposal or finish that album.

New season, new you? There is change in the air, Capricorn, and you are so ready for it.

The month of April has you re-evaluating where you’ve been and where you’re going next. You’re realizing that you are ready for a new challenge—especially if it will push you toward completely new experiences.

It’s a great time to get out of your comfort zone, especially on the career front. Volunteer to help with a special project at work, or apply for that new position that’s opening up. Pushing yourself towards new opportunities will help you get clear about what you have to offer and which skills and talents you most want to showcase.

If you do one thing this month:

Take a risk. Do something you’ve never done before or something you’ve always been afraid to try. 

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You’re not always one to seek out the spotlight, but this month the stars are making it clear that you have supporters in your corner. You will get some help with getting the word out to your network about the amazing work you do. For Aquarians who are working in creative capacities, put some extra effort into building your fan base this month—it’s a great time to expand your reach.

Whatever you’re focused on, you have a chance to impress someone on the job front or within your industry right now. Don’t be afraid to let your creativity shine, Aquarius. This is a time when your unique perspective needs to be heard and shared.

If you do one thing this month: 

Update your online presence to best reflect the work you do and the impressions you want to make.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You’re making progress, Pisces. It might not always seem like it, but things are finally moving forward for you—and the timing couldn’t be better. So often this year, you’ve questioned your abilities, intentions and dreams. You’ve wondered, “Can I really pull this off?” This month, the stars are aligning to give you the validation you’ve been looking for.

Not everything happens overnight, of course, and sometimes the magic we want to see unfolds in ways that aren’t always immediately obvious. But your efforts are not going unnoticed, and April is a key time for you to keep doing what you’re doing. Trust in the process.

If you do one thing this month:  

Don’t give up. Stay focused and consistent with your priorities right now.
