In traditional astrology, Mars, the planet of action, is governed by Aries and Scorpio. While Aries corresponds with Mars’s fiery impulsivity, Scorpio embodies Mars’s more calculated, strategic side. Though your sign is now associated with Pluto, the powerful celestial body that governs transformation, you still have a unique relationship with Mars’s energy, the defining essence of Aries season. During the first few weeks of April, you’ll apply your signature determination to the area of life associated with wellness and routines.
Let’s be honest, Scorpio darling: You are a creature of habit. But through April 19, you’ll be exploring the aspects of your daily life that aren’t serving you. Where are the cracks in the system? Analyze everything: your commute, your day job, your exercise routine. You’re ready to transform.
During the new moon on April 15, there will be no nocturnal visibility. The sun and moon meet in Aries, and the sky is completely dark. But in the shadows, our senses are heightened. You’ll be increasingly aware of your emotions, finding strength in your ability to link your inner and outer worlds. Use this month’s new moon to contemplate how you can incorporate healing into your schedule. Remember, Scorpio darling, growth is essential, and meaningful transformation occurs over time when we make small steps toward it every day.
Is it time for you to partner up, Scorpio babe? On April 19, the sun glides in Taurus, your opposite sign, activating the area of your chart associated with serious relationships. If you’re currently coupled, don’t be surprised if things get serious in the latter half of this month, because romantic commitments are on the horizon. Single? This cosmic shift will be sure to spark something major. But don’t forget, the sun in your partnership zone fuels only those relationships with potential; this energy can’t build something from nothing. In other words, don’t expect your booty call to suddenly blossom into a marriage proposal.
By the end of the month, you’ll be more interested in deep soul connections than those 2 a.m. texts asking if you want to “Netflix and chill.” Romantic Venus moves into Gemini on April 24 and activates your eighth house, the area of your chart associated with death, sex, and transformation. Sound familiar? This is your zone, Scorpio darling. You’re no stranger to intensity, but Venus’s glide across the eighth house is bound to be emotional. You’ll explore transformation within your partnerships, releasing the toxic negativity that is tethered to insecurities. This transit only happens once per year, so embrace the cosmic detox.
The month concludes with a full moon in your own sign on April 29. Unlike new moons, full moons provide maximum visibility in the darkness. Accordingly, this lunation exposes big news about important relationships. Don’t forget, Scorpio darling, full moons only reveal what already exists, and the truth is nothing to fear.
