April 2020 Horoscope
Although the current state of world affairs may pose a difficult time for many, according to the stars, it’s still a month of go, go, go—just while social distancing and finding a new routine when it comes to work, exercise, and relaxation. The energy is stronger than ever as we go from fiery Aries season into determined Taurus season. This month features the second out of three full super moons, so as the moon waxes, expect the entire zodiac to have a power surge.
Watch for conflicts. This month is not the time to become aggressive or react angrily. Give yourself some space when problems arise and watch the impact of that decision radically alter the quality of your life. Do be sure to get enough exercise and time outside to keep you healthy. Activities like yoga, martial arts, and dance in all forms are completely supported all month.

Happy birthday to April Taureans! Wow, what a time to be celebrating. Fortunately, your strength is being illuminated by the sun and reinforced by a new moon in your sign on the 22nd.
Your season and job right now is to experience and share connections with nature. It’s true, you love luxury and abundance. At its core, abundance is about richness in natural resources. So get your houseplant or garden on or spend some time out in nature.
This is also a fabulous time for you to make adjustments to yourself, so go for that amazing new hair color or re-up your wardrobe for the coming warmer seasons. Try dying your hair at home or repurposing some of the old items in your wardrobe to be able to make these self-adjustments while still practicing social distancing. And of course, there’s always online shopping.

Gemini the Twins: May 21 – June 20
Hello, again twins. This month brings a couple of things to the limelight for you. First up, the full moon in a fellow air sign, Libra, highlights the creative sector of your life. This is the perfect complement to your chatty, social ways because, not only will you be talking to people, but people will be giving you their full attention.
We don’t have to tell you twice to have fun with it because you are arguably one of the most fun-loving signs in the zodiac. That energy carries through strongly while Mercury takes a turn in Aries, highlighting the places in your life that you can make a real difference in society. It is a busy time, so expect your calendar to be full, though you will have a breather around new moon time on the 22nd.
Your blend this month is Happy to bring uplifting actions and interactions your way.
Cancer the Crab: June 21 – July 22
It looks like another good month to be a crab. At the beginning of the month, expect big changes during the full moon on the 7th, especially in your home and at work. Expect things to move into an equally busy but less change-oriented vibe when the sun moves into Taurus on the 20th.
As a water sign, this season is all about growth. Plant a garden, spend time with your family (especially children), or develop an artistic skill. Doing things that promote your growth and the growth of life around you will be the best way to channel this month’s energy.
Pluto turning retrograde in Capricorn on the 25th will bring big transformations to your love life. It may be in the form of a new relationship or a relationship ending. Because Pluto is slow-moving, it is more likely to be the development of a new feeling or mentality about love and relationships.
You are a deep thinker already—let your heart lead the way and trust the process. When Pluto turns direct again you will have an even stronger appreciation for yourself and the people in your life.
Enjoy Peace this month to assist your growth to stay fresh as you begin a journey of transformation.

The more time and space you give yourself to relax, reflect, and take care, the stronger and better these changes will be. “Going with the flow” is not exactly your mantra, but with a sudden shift in energy, it will serve you so you can keep your amazing glow and magnetism.
This month, Ocean should be your top pick as you remember to “go with the flow.”
