DON’T: Get Lost In Jealousy

DON’T: Give Up If You Face Challenges

Strict planet Saturn is forming a loose square aspect with this full moon — which could force us bear the burden of heavy responsibilities. It’s also a chance to problem-solve and step into your power.

DO: Expect The Unexpected

April's full moon forms an opposition aspect to Uranus, the planet of sudden change. This could catalyze unexpected realizations or unpredictable plot twists. So don't be shocked if feelings, obstacles, or changes of heart pop up out of nowhere.
