🍿April Horoscope 2019
Inner Spring Cleaning
It’s spring. Don’t underestimate your capacity to grow.
A second Full Moon in Libra is on its way this April, and with it comes tension between yourself and others. Luckily the soupy Mercury Retrograde that colored March is over, but we’re not totally in the clear yet. Anxieties are still likely to run high for the first half of April. Strive to only feed what you want to see grow in your life and the world around you. Negative obsessions will only bring forth what you least want. Approach your feelings with intention, patience, and care this month.
March 21-April 19
April is a powerful time to look at what you need to let go of in order to leave room for what you truly want. If you skip essential steps or try to take short cuts, you’ll only succeed in slowing down your overall progress by creating situations that you have to come back and fix later. No matter how busy and exciting your schedule is, honor your truest priorities in the here and now, Aries.
April 20-May 20
When you don’t appreciate the abundance in your life, the result is closer to hoarding than to riches. The more you have, the more you have to lose. And the tighter you clutch onto what you’ve got, the more scarce it will feel. Apply faith and common sense to your relationship to your material world, dear Taurus. Don’t convince yourself that you don’t have enough just because you want more, my love.
May 21-June 21
Strive to act in accordance with what’s true for you instead of trying to figure out the “right thing” to do. April will confront you with mixed messages and confusing dynamics with others, which at times could make it feel like you’re spinning out. There’s so much that is out of your control, and so it’s important that you remember that other people’s opinions and judgments are their own problem to manage, not yours. Just do you, Twin Star.
June 22-July 22
It’s easy to show up for others when you feel good about yourself, but so much harder when you’re scared or suffering. This month you’re likely to be confronted by discord, but it’s not for nothing. When upsets occur, treat them with kindness, empathy, and patience. Act in accordance with your integrity without abandoning your boundaries or needs for self-care. In this way you can make compromises, but not in ways that compromise you, dear Moonchild.
July 23-Aug. 22
This isn’t the time to maintain the status quo or strive for stability; you are growing, and that will require at least some measure of unpredictability in your life for a while. In the words of Octavia Butler, “All that you touch, you change. All that you change, changes you. The only lasting truth is change.” Be open to what comes next without needing proof that it’s worth your time at every step of the way, Leo.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Your relationships are confusing and complicated, beautiful and deeply important. You’re likely to find yourself tempted to be extreme this month, but it’s not going to do you any favors, Virgo. Strive to find balanced ways of engaging with others at least in part by not taking things so personally when they’re clearly not about you. Lead with compassion, not precision and survive the messiness of intimate connection by keeping your side of the road clean, Virgo.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
On the 19th there will be the second Full Moon in your sign of 2019, and it’s really special. You are meant to be in your feels and have lots of stuff come up so that you can forgive and let go. You can’t change your past, but you can stop using it against yourself and deal with the present. Say what you have to say and honor what you feel; it’s time to stop waiting for others to manage your evolution, Libra.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
A Capricorn said it, but it’s your lesson to learn right now: When they go low, you go high, dear Scorpio. Don’t allow the misdeeds of others to inspire you to act in ways that compromise how you want to be in the world—no matter how messy things get. Stay true to yourself when it would be easiest to cut corners, or hide behind any kind of “they started it” thinking. Your side of the road is your only job this month.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Don’t allow your circumstances to force your hand, Sagittarius. Whether we’re talking about fated relationships or pre-destined dynamics, you always have free will within your situation. This month it may feel like the momentum in your life has shifted, and it’s upsetting your sense of equilibrium. Strive to make choices that honor this moment as it is in the here and now. Make choices that reflect your intentions by first slowing down and getting centered, sweet Sadge.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
In the wise words of Dolly Parton, “If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, then, you are an excellent leader.” That said, when you take charge, you also run the risk of inspiring the ire of others, too. As opportunities that require both leadership and collaboration from you emerge, you have choices to make. Invite others into your process. You don’t need to prove your worth to others to earn their respect; just be yourself, Capricorn.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
If you’ve taken on too much in recent months, you’re likely to feel like things are both moving too fast and too slow at the same time. It’s time to learn this valuable lesson: You don’t need to move faster than your heart can bear. You’re coming to the end of a meaningful period of growth and as you move to the next level you’ve got to take time to nurture your feels.
Feb. 19-March 20
It’s okay for you to do things at a pace that works for you, but it’s unlikely you’re going to get permission from anyone—you just have to trust yourself. Allow time and space to get comfortable with owning and integrating the changes you’ve made in recent months, Pisces. You don’t need to rush to share anything with the world right away. Learning to do things in a self-appropriate way is the key to not just being successful, but feeling successful, my love.
