Your Horoscope For April 2023
It's semi-smooth sailing until we hit Mercury retrograde.
The month kicks off with Mercury’s shift into stubborn Taurus on April 3. Expect to feel more sensible, grounded, and mentally resilient. Tensions will run high on April 6 as the full moon in Libra urges you to resolve heated disagreements to regain inner peace. Getting along with others will require you to assert yourself calmly without triggering their insecurities. Venus sweeps through social-butterfly Gemini on April 11, energizing your social circle and dating life. Explore your romantic options with curiosity and welcome new friends into your plans and group chat.
Mark your calendar for April 20, when the Sun will cruise through Taurus, generating determined and hardworking energy. This season encourages you to persevere through challenges and maintain consistent self-care rituals as an act of self-love. On the same day, the electric solar eclipse in Aries brings a dramatic fresh start where you’ll realize you’re more self-aware and in a better position than you were this time last month. Mercury’s serious-minded retrograde in Taurus begins on April 21. This frustrating energy will test your patience and remind you to always have a backup plan.
Happy birthday, Taurus!
Aries April Horoscope (March 21-April 19)
Drama in your closest relationships will test your ability to keep calm and not take things so personally. Keep the peace with your loved ones by compromising and resisting your instinct to engage in stubborn arguments. This brief distraction won’t hold you back from achieving huge personal goals and ambitions, since the solar eclipse will magnetize your zodiac sign. Keep working on yourself, building inner strength, and pushing toward your dreams.
Taurus April Horoscope (April 20-May 20)
This month, Taurus, you must face your challenges with a level head and stick to the facts of the matter. Be a team player — especially in work-related circumstances — and trust that you don’t need to take control to resolve every situation. Once your season begins on April 20, reflect on how your attitude and values have changed over the past year. As your interests evolve, so will the path you take in life. Try not to resist this redirection.
Gemini April Horoscope (May 21-June 20)
Stick to your plans, Gemini, even if looks like you’re far from accomplishing your goals and dreams. Your mental resilience and determination to push through obstacles will pay off soon, resulting in your desires coming true. Instead of jumping to your next ambition, take some time out to rest, restore your energy, and reflect on this intense journey. Beginning with the rise of Taurus season on April 20, you’ll be more focused on taking care of your mental health.
Cancer April Horoscope (June 21-July 22)
Cancer, it’s best to rely on facts and evidence instead of what you’ve seen and heard on social media. Make your own decisions and trust your instincts instead of blindly believing what others tell you. The hard work you’ve poured into your career will slowly manifest in promotions and recognition. However, Mercury retrograde on April 21 will cause you to reconsider where you're headed and whether you have the right friends and mentors around you to support your growth.
Leo April Horoscope (July 23-Aug. 22)
This month, embrace time spent connecting with old and new friends. Every social engagement is an opportunity to network; you could make a valuable connection through a mutual friend, so be charming to everyone you meet and ask people questions about themselves. Tensions may rise during the solar eclipse on April 20. Be the mediator instead of taking sides during heated conversations, and use your balanced logic to shed light on the truth.
Virgo April Horoscope (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Keep an open mind when faced with opportunities to learn from someone who has more knowledge and experience than you do. Whether you pick up a book to learn a new skill or ask someone for advice, there’s no shame in being a student instead of a teacher. As your social life increases in activity, remember that it’s OK to leave a venue early when you’re overwhelmed or tired — don’t overdo it when you know you’d rather be at home!
Libra April Horoscope (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Hold space for your loved ones to voice their frustration and concerns, but remember to maintain your boundaries, Libra. Set the standard that you deserve to be spoken to with respect at all times.

You may be surprised by who you form a deep, intellectual connection with based on your shared philosophies and outlook.
Scorpio April Horoscope (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Your partnerships will take center stage, calling you to work on building security, trust, and intimacy with your significant other. Spoil your loved ones with time and attention, and take the lead when planning romantic dates or meetups with your BFF. Despite feeling in control of your personal life, you’ll feel pressured to keep calm when dealing with office mishaps and collaborative work. Steer clear of drama for the sake of your mental health, and try not to let your colleagues rile you up.
Sagittarius April Horoscope (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Don’t lose faith if you and the person you've been casually dating decide you’re better off as friends. You’ll experience more opportunities to play the field this April or reignite the spark in your existing relationships through laughter and flirtation. Taurus season will cause you to consider whether your work efforts have produced enough results. Re-prioritize and restructure your daily routines to ensure your time and energy are well spent.
Capricorn April Horoscope (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Speak from the heart and choose your words carefully this April. Saying something harsh in the heat of the moment could cause irreparable harm to your reputation.

Whether you’re running errands, at the gym, or mingling with co-workers, make an effort to connect with others over your mutual interests. You can never have too many friends.
Aquarius April Horoscope (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Aquarius, this month is all about connecting to your needs and interests. Pour your heart into a new passion project, and enjoy being in the spotlight while potential romantic interests vie for your attention. Even with good intentions, it’s possible to be consumed by your own thoughts and experiences. Work on widening your perspective to avoid arguments and toy with the idea that you may not know as much as you think.
Pisces April Horoscope (Feb. 19-March 20)
This month, you will see the positive impacts of earlier changes you’ve made to your daily routine. However, avoid restricting yourself to rigid patterns in the hopes of being productive; you will thrive when you have space to be creative and spontaneous. Expect to feel more confident when communicating your ideas clearly and making good judgments. However, keep in mind that Mercury retrograde on April 21 could cause frustrations if unexplainable mistakes and delays occur. Don’t be too hard on yourself.
