April Monthly Horoscopes (by @thespiritchick)
April 2021 Monthly Horoscope: 12 Sign Overview
The month of April is to be a powerful period of movement and transformation for signs of the Zodiac. Not only is the energy of spring encouraging us to make plans and set goals, but as the days are growing brighter, so is our optimism for the future. Just like the blooming flowers of spring, our minds are full of beauty and inspiration, allowing us to dream bigger than we have in a long time. Although, while things are bright on the surface, on the inside, the signs will also feel a common struggle of uncertainty this month, questioning their moves in just about everything. However, the spunky energy of the Aries will help to push us out of this funk and keep us moving towards our goals, even if we aren't fully certain of them. And by the time the Sun enters Taurus on the 19th, energy will start to shift, and the turmoil of the month will gradually start to dissipate. This, alongside the powerful influence of the planet of love, Venus, on the 14th, will have us feeling a need to slow down and let loose as we approach the end of the month.
Aries(March 21 - April 19)
Corresponding crystals: Red Jasper, Carnelian, Citrine
Chakra: Solar Plexus
Starting with the Aries, it's still your birthday season, and because of that, your confidence is on fire! With the positive energies of your sign lingering, this is going to be a busy month of innovation and forward movement. You've been lying low the last few months, but now you're eager to get back out there and shine! And trust us, the Universe has definitely got your back with that this month.
On the romantic front, if you are in a relationship, you're going to feel more connected to your partner than ever. Everything is smooth sailing, and your passion is off the hook! On the other hand, if you are single, you have a high chance of finding a deeper connection with somebody that's already in your circle. This could develop into something beautiful, so make sure you keep an open mind about it, even if it seems strange at first.
Career-wise, with all the passion and assertiveness you have going on this month, it would be wise to direct it towards new promotions and opportunities in the workspace. This could include being forward with your superior about advancing ahead or as simple as suggesting new ideas to make things run smoother. Either way, if you wish to move further up the career ladder, now is the time to be bold.
Taurus(April 20 - May 20):
Corresponding crystals: Amazonite, Selenite, Smoky Quartz
Chakra: Heart Chakra
For the Taurus, Mars has quite the influence over you this month and is going to make your life a little chaotic. Because of this, you may feel like you're under emotional stress 24/7, which can make you a bit irritable and sensitive this month. But fear not, this will only be for the first two weeks of the month, as the Sun enters the sign of Taurus on the 19th, bringing with it tranquility and grounding.
On the romantic front, Venus, the planet of love, will help to bring contentment to your relationship this month and keep things running smooth. If you are single, you can expect to be presented with several opportunities to develop new relationships this month that have the potential to flourish into something beautiful later on.
In your career, your natural leadership qualities are shining through more than ever, Taurus, and they aren't going unnoticed. This is something that will earn you praise in the workspace and could lead you to bigger rewards in the coming months if you play your cards right.
Gemini(May 21-June 20):
Corresponding crystals: Shungite, Amazonite, Tiger's Eye
Chakra: Throat Chakra
For the Gemini, thanks to the influence of Mars, the ruler of confidence, you're walking into April with self-assurance riding high on your shoulders. This has you feeling unstoppable in all areas of your life, but more specifically on the career front.
In your workspace, while being confident is necessary for advancing your career this month, it's important to not come off as desperate. With the proper charism, you can negotiate some incredible deals with your boss this month, but you don't want to be too pushy. You also need to be aware of deceit in the first two weeks from coworkers that wish you ill with your assertiveness. However, once the new moon in Taurus passes on the 12th, you will be clear to act freely once again.Romantically this month, Venus will enter into conjunction with Uranus on April 23rd, making way for changes in relationships. With that said, you may meet someone new this month that might be worth spending a little extra time with than you're used to. Take it slow, and have fun, as it doesn't seem like anything too serious is on your mind right now.
Cancer (June 21-July 22):
Corresponding crystals: Selenite, Labradorite, Red Jasper
Chakra: Third Eye Chakra
For the Cancer, you are advised to trust your intuition this month. While your intuition is something you live by anyway, this month, it will pay off more than ever to listen, as there will be a lot of uncertain energies to navigate through. This is also an excellent time to go back to your roots and visit family and friends (safely, of course) that you haven't seen in a while. Overall, taking your mind out of the chaotic energy of today and just remembering the simpler times will help to keep you sane this month.
In your career, positive advancements are coming, as long as you are true to yourself and follow your ambition. Keep your head up and keep it professional this month; that's all you need to know.
On a romantic front, jealousy may arise, and you are advised to step back and just breathe instead of making a scene. It's likely you are feeling jealous because of the current planetary alignment, not something in your relationship that is of serious concern. Do your best to keep your cool and work on personal development instead to keep your mind off of it. If you are a single Cancer, you will likely find someone new this month, as the full more in Scorpio is boosting your passion and sexual energy. Have fun and take it slow, and you should be just fine.
Leo (July 23 - August 22):
Corresponding crystals: Tiger's Eye, Rose Quartz, Garnet
Chakra: Third Eye Chakra
For the Leo, the month of April will be full of opportunities for growth as well as quality time with family. However, it's best to focus on reflection at the beginning of the month and align yourself with whatever it is you wish to accomplish this month, in both your personal life and career.
On the career front, if you've been hoping for some good news at your job, this may just be the month for you. Around the 19th of the month, both Mercury and Sun team up to manifest new opportunities in your work. Whether it's a raise or a promotion, good things are coming. However, you shouldn't take this as a sign to get lazy, as you're definitely going to need to give your all to get to this point.
Romantically, you can expect to feel a little off your hinges emotionally this month, thanks to the Scorpio new moon on April 12th throwing you for a whirl. Therefore, you may be irritable with your partner this month, making arguments more likely. However, a little pamper and vacay never hurt anybody, and that might be exactly what the doctor ordered. Take plenty of time for yourself this month, and everything will be ok.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22):
Chakra: Throat Chakra
For the Virgo, this month, you will be surrounded by the energies of abundance and opportunity, and you can probably already feel it. All your hard work is finally starting to pay off, and it is well deserved. Therefore, this month, expect to be rewarded thoroughly with good karma and opportunities. However, don't get too high on your horse just yet, as there is still lots of work that needs to be done.
On the career front, you are likely to see new career opportunities once the Sun enters Taurus on the 19th. Until then, expect to be putting in extra hours at the office in the first two weeks if you want to see positive changes at the end of the month.
Romantically, the conjunction of the Sun with Aries and Venus will create disconnection and frustration for those in a relationship. However, things will improve around the 19th when the Sun enters Taurus, propelling the energies of confidence and luck on the romantic front. Therefore, if you are single, you have the best chance of meeting someone later on in the month and should definitely keep your heart open.
By the end of April, you're going to be long overdone for some relaxation. Plan a getaway or get out in nature and detox yourself. If you don't, you run the risk of feeling burnt out.
Libra (September 23 - October 22):
Corresponding crystals: Tiger's Eye, Amethyst, Bloodstone
Chakra: Heart Chakra
For the Libra, you've been doing a lot of reflection in recent months, and you're starting to feel a deeper sense of purpose lately, which is awesome! Therefore, this month, you’re going to have a much clearer vision of where you want to go with your goals and how to get to them. With that said, you're going to have very little to complain about this month, as things truly seem to be aligned with your positive energy (you go, Libra!).
In your career, you are feeling enthusiastic and are ready to make new connections with just about everybody. Because of this, this is an excellent time of creating business relationships with like-minded individuals, which will keep your mind focused on financial investments and savings for the future.
On the romantic front, if you are in a relationship, you are encouraged to take some time away with your partner. Whether it's a weekend getaway or a dinner out, positive energy is flowing around you two, and you would benefit by letting it guide you. If you are single, you will be feeling more social than you have in a while this month, making your chances of meeting someone special much higher. So get out there and have some fun, Libra! Things are lining up for you for a reason, so make sure you make the most of it.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21):
Corresponding crystals: Pink Tourmaline, Amethyst, K2
Chakra: Solar Plexus
For the Scorpio, the month of April has you ready to tackle all obstacles in your way, but mentally, you're going to feel a bit drained. The current planetary alignment as we move through the month is going to have your emotions scattered about, and it's going to be frustrating. To combat this, you are encouraged to spend time with friends and family (safely) to help ground your energy once more.
On the professional front, things will be steady at your job, but you are encouraged to put serious thought into building better financial savings. You tend to get in a mood where you want to splurge a lot all at once. And while that's ok from time to time, you need to make sure you put just as much energy behind saving your money as well. Above all else, don't get cocky with your finances right now, or you will seriously regret it.
Romantically, you may meet someone new this month that you will start moving forward with very quickly. This can be good, as it can help keep your mind off your emotional issues this month. However, if you are looking for something more serious, be sure to move a bit slower with this person; otherwise, it might turn out to be just another fling.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21):
Corresponding crystals: Lepidolite, Smoky Quartz, Shungite
Chakra: Sacral Chakra
For the Sagittarius, this is a month of ups and downs. With the current planetary alignment of Mercury and Jupiter, you're going to start the month feeling a little out of sorts with yourself. But don't worry, this is only temporary, and the positive traits of the month outweigh the negative.
In your career, your mind has been buzzing with great ideas lately, but you've been a little unsure of how to execute them properly. However, this month, you are likely to meet a patron that may be the missing link you've needed in your business plans. You are encouraged to develop this bond the best you can if the opportunity arises.
Romantically, those in a relationship will be flourishing like the flowers of spring, and it will honestly feel just like your honeymoon. For single people, you can expect to feel exactly the same, with a high chance of meeting somebody new this month that will connect with you effortlessly.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19):
Corresponding crystals: Rose Quartz, Garnet, Smoky Quartz
Chakra: Root Chakra
For the Capricorn, the best way to describe the month of April for you is with the word 'stagnant.' In the first half of the month, your stubbornness may push you over the edge in an array of emotions when things don't go as planned. If this happens, it's important to take a step back and analyze the situation before you jump to conclusions, as things may not be as they seem.
In your career, problems at work may arise this month and may cause you to collide with your colleagues. You are encouraged to lie low if this occurs and keep to yourself to avoid any issues with your boss.
Romantically, this month your relationship is steady, maybe even a little bit boring. However, you'll feel a need to change things up and try something new to keep your passion flowing (which will most likely be positively met with by your partner, BTW). If you are single, loneliness may get the best of you this month, and you may feel tempted to run back to your ex. Do your best to control yourself if this happens, and remember there's a reason it didn't work out in the past with this person. If you don't, you may suffer the same ill fate all over again.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18):
Corresponding crystals: Lepidolite, Amethyst, Tourmalinated Quartz
Chakra: Root Chakra
For the Aquarius, April is not a month to sit back and watch. Instead, it's time to get out there and voice your truth to the world! While sharing your beliefs can be empowering and is certainly encouraged, your emotions may get the best of you and may lead you to a nervous breakdown this month. For that reason, it's important to make time to take care of yourself and speak only words of encouragement to yourself to avoid any mental anguish.
On the career front, a well-earned promotion may be on the horizon, but that's only if you can keep up on your current work ethic. Now is not the time to get lazy. You will have easier days towards the end of the month, but right now, you have to keep moving.
Romantically, you will be reminded to enjoy the cheesy little things this month with your beloved. Take some time to cuddle up, share a kiss, and watch a movie together. For those that are single, tenderness is in the air, and you are likely to find someone to share in an adventure with towards the end of the month.
Pisces (February 19 - March 10):
Corresponding crystals: Clear Quartz, Carnelian, Chrysocolla
Chakra: Sacral Chakra
And lastly, for the Pisces, if you have been a little worried about the future and where it's taking you, take comfort in knowing that you are on the right path this month. You are even encouraged to take a bit of a chance in some area of your life that you've been contemplating and live a little dangerously with it!
Romantically, jealousy may arise this month, but you are encouraged to not let it get the best of you, as the situation is not what it seems. If you are single, you might take comfort in someone new this month but are encouraged to take it slow if it is something you truly want to last.
On the career front, Mercury is on your side this month, encouraging you to show more perseverance and enthusiasm in the workplace. The movement of this energetic phenomenon will also have a positive impact on your finances, helping you to finally feel stable after a long period of uncertainty. However, you are encouraged to set any extra money aside this month and save it for a rainy day, as you may need it in the near future.
Overall, the month of April will be a transformative, eye-opening, and emotional month of ups and downs for all Zodiac signs. There's no denying it, it's been a crazy last year, and we are finally transitioning out of its residual energy with the help of the forward movement of the Aries as well as the spring equinox. Therefore, it may seem chaotic right now, but it is necessary for our growth into something new and beautiful as we leave this period of uncertainty behind us. So stay strong, fellow Zodiacs, something big is coming, and we are all being prepared for it. Keep your thoughts positive and your head up and it will be over before you know it.
