You love to be first, and it only makes sense. Your solar return (that’s astrospeak for “your birthday”) kicks off the spring equinox, as well as the zodiac cycle. What could be better than spearheading the cosmic rotation? This is your season, darling ram. Embrace it by celebrating your fiery passions, enterprising sensibilities, and your volatility. (Actually, on second thought, maybe keep an eye on that last quality, Aries babe: Enthusiasm is admirable, but outbursts are less so.)
On April 15, a new moon in your own sign connects your passions with your emotions. Under this lunation, you’ll be both energized by the sun and contained by the moon, a strange sensibility that simultaneously ignites confidence and fear. You can wear your emotions on your sleeve, but try not to take everything personally. During the new moon phase, when the sky is completely dark, there is no nocturnal visibility, meaning we can’t see clearly. Though your instincts will be heightened, this lunation is best for internal contemplation and reflection. I know it’s hard not to take action, but it’s difficult to make thoughtful choices without transparency. Be patient and wait for full facts.
On April 19, the sun glides into Taurus. Though your solar return may be over, you always know how to keep the party going. For better or for worse, this season’s festivities will involve a focus on your personal finances. Whether you’ve been practicing responsible money management or exploring a form of chaos theory with your bank account, this is an excellent time to get clarity about your resources. Set both short- and long-term goals: How do you define security, and how will you work toward it? As you cultivate a sustainable foundation for your future, it’s also important to remember that material goods don’t define your spirit. Financial stability will help you to create your launching pad, but your goals and aspirations transcend the weight of your wallet.
Romantic Venus glides into the Gemini constellation on April 24, illuminating the area of your chart associated with communication. For the past few weeks, you’ve been all about partnering up. Now, with Venus’s movement into playful Gemini, you’re feeling increasingly social. In the words of Jagged Edge, “Where the party at?” If you’re already coupled, celebrate the warmer weather by exploring new adventures in your own backyard. Single? Then ’tis the season to mingle. Gemini energy is characterized by its incredible wit, so don’t be surprised if you’re seduced by some seriously sexy wordplay.
Halloween comes early this year for you, Aries darling: On April 29, a full moon in Scorpio illuminates the area of your chart associated with death, sex, and transformation — basically the Addams Family zone of your astrological profile. With the moon’s nocturnal radiance illuminating the area of your chart associated with otherworldly happenings, you’ll be motivated to explore the dark crevices of your psyche. I know emotional deep dives can be scary, but don’t forget: Your ability to reflect, heal, and regenerate will always be rewarded. Embrace your inner Morticia with Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Tar Pit. Despite the intensity of its pigment, this long-lasting lipstick feels light and moisturizing.
