Here’s Your Monthly Horoscope For April: Lifestyle, Relationships & Love
With the arrival of April, we can well and truly say goodbye to winter. Yup, with mid-spring approaching, that means those glorious summer days filled with sunshine and lazy weekends by the pool are drawing ever closer, and in the meantime, we have the season of change to enjoy. Nearly all zodiac signs can look forward to some big transformations this April.
Don’t worry too much about Mercury being in retrograde, since that started on March 23 and won’t change until halfway through the month. You might find that there are some miscommunication and electrical objects acting crazy until April 16, but as long as you remember to back up all of your work, the month will be less about Mercury’s suppressed energy and more about the great changes of spring.
The month starts in Aries and moves through the various phases of the Ram’s sign before turning over to Taurus on April 25. Aries’ first period will be a time for discovering new things in a child-like way, the second will see many signs making stark realizations, the third will be a time for socializing and learning, and the Aries-Taurus cusp near the end of the month will be a time to harness power and celebrate the transformations of the planet.
Check out our April love and life predictions for every sign below. There may be some challenges this month, but at least the leftover chocolate from Easter on April 1 will help us all get through.
24Aries: Get Ready To Connect With Your Angels
This is your month, Aries ladies! With the beginning of mid-spring looming and the leader of the zodiac taking center stage, this is a time of change, birth and second chances for everyone, but most of all for Aries gals. April will present an opportunity for you to increase your psychic ability, and start a new spiritual journey. If you’ve ever thought about meditating to open up your third eye, listen to your inner-voice or connect with your angels and spirit guides, now is the time!
You might find that your body is especially sensitive to everything this month, so pay attention to what food you eat and any other supplements that you take. Stay alert if you’re celebrating your birthday out with the girls, because alcohol could have a stronger effect on you than it usually does, and things could get messy.
23Aries Love Horoscope: Ease Up On That Aries Aggression
The stars seem to indicate that you’ll have endless energy to spend on your romantic partner this April, not that that’s a huge surprise for a sign as fiery as you. Make sure that you know when to draw the line between being passionate and being aggressive because being too forceful or intense could result in problems between you and your partner around the middle of the month.
Single Aries ladies seem to have many opportunities for something new this month, whether that ends up being a short-term fling or something a little more permanent. It is the season of change, after all! You might not think so, but the chance to fall in love is there. If you can’t see it, it could be because you don’t want to.
22Taurus: Now Is The Time To Focus!
This April will be all about knuckling down and getting to work for Taurus. Particularly around the Aries-Taurus cusp, the universe will be ready to give you all the power you need to achieve your goals, so it’s a good idea to spend the majority of the month with your tail in the air. Whether the project you’re working on is personal or professional, you’ll be the happiest if you focus on it above all else, and give yourself better chances of success toward the end of the April.
That said, don’t forget to rest up when you feel you need it. You won’t get anywhere in anything if you overwork yourself and burn out! Don’t be afraid to get creative with your work, and the best ideas may come if you think in a more abstract way than you usually do.
21Taurus Love Horoscope: You Could Be In For A Bumpy Ride, But You’ll Sort It Out
If you’re in a committed relationship, some struggles could arise around the second week of the month. April, in general, might be a pretty rocky one for you, particularly because the planet of communications is in freakin’ retrograde, so our planet is full of misunderstandings and hurt feelings. Take special care to understand your partner and make plenty of time for discussions of feelings, so there are no unnecessary fights.
Single Taurus gals have a high chance of finding love this month, as it’s a time of new beginnings for everyone. Love might come to you in a very unlikely package, so it’s a good idea to keep an open mind and give out more chances than you normally would. You might find that you’re overwhelmed by your own desires this month, so remember that it’s okay to express yourself and pursue those you’re interested in too.
20Gemini: This Is The Month To Connect With New People
Good news, Gemini! There’s nothing you love more than making new connections and meeting new people, and this is the month where you should do just that. By lining up your energy with those in your friendship group or in another social circle, you could make a goal you’ve been harboring for a while come true. As you get closer to others, make sure you don’t forget who you are, what your purpose is and what kind of morals you have, to avoid allowing the influence of others to change the essence of who you are.
There could be a pretty significant change at work toward the end of the month, and while it will be a surprise, it will end up being a good thing. Remember the saying: when God closes a door, He opens a window.
19Gemini Love Horoscope: Pay More Attention To Your Love Life, And Less To Everything Else
Typically, love isn’t the most important thing to you, but this month you have to remember to make it a priority. A few signs will suffer some kind of confusion in their love lives thanks to Mercury in retrograde, and your partner, in particular, could end up feeling neglected as they interpret your energy toward all areas of your life but love. All you have to do is get clear about your feelings, and spend time being a little affectionate, and any misunderstandings will be resolved.
The House of Friends is dominant in April 2018, which means that friends are important for all Geminis, but particularly for the single ladies. Friendship could turn into something more if you spend enough time nurturing it this month, so think carefully about how you really feel about your buddies.
18Cancer: Make A Plan. You’re Going To Need It!
Cancer, if you do nothing else this month, please put a little time aside to plan. When it comes to your career this April, a lot of hard work is going to be involved in launching some kind of project, pitching an idea or making a presentation. You have much more chance of withstanding any obstacles at work if you have a plan A, B, and C and ensure that you work to a schedule. Your job will take up a lot of your focus this month, but if you play your cards correctly, it will be worth it.
Around April 8, you might end up in a situation where you’re dealing with someone who’s quite influential or even famous. By association, you could end up with increased recognition yourself, so it’s a good time to think about how you want to present yourself to the public.
17Cancer Love Horoscope: Your Soulmate Could Be Just Around The Corner
Tis the season to be changing, and you could experience some prominent adjustments to your home life this April. Your relationship with a spouse or partner could change near the beginning of the month, which will require you to adapt quickly.
Good news for single Cancers who are dreaming about finding their soulmate! There’s a strong possibility of a new romance on April 8, and it’s likely to be the kind of romance that feels like it was written in the stars. Don’t worry about falling in love quickly, since you’re the kind of sign who was built for the romances we see in movies. If you’re wondering where you’re going to meet said soulmate, don’t underestimate the power of networking. Something that starts off in a work setting could lead to much more in the future.
16Leo: You’ve Cleared Your Karma, So It’s Time For A New Beginning
New beginnings are so in right now, but that’s especially true for the Lionesses. You are just emerging from a tough phase of clearing away all your old negative karma, and are ready to embrace changes that will bring about the birth of something new and beautiful. If you’ve been thinking about making plans for the long-term, confirm them now, since the universe will back you up.
This month, you may be presented with a chance to work with a teacher or mentor who can help you tremendously with something that’s important to you. Around April 24, you might be consumed with a desire to move, so it’s a good time to take a trip. Any travel is beneficial to you this month, since it will open up opportunities for higher learning.
15Leo Love Horoscope: Friendship Could Become More This Month
There could be some turbulence in a relationship that you thought was rock solid this month, and it’s ultimately a time of testing. If your relationship with your partner really is strong and meant to be, you’ll be able to work through the issues you have. But if you and your significant other are not meant to be, what you have will crumble. Though this can be devastating, it’s the universe’s way of showing you what you need and what you don’t.
Friends could become lovers this month, which might get you into trouble later on in the year. There’s a good chance of you being attracted to someone who’s popular, but that shouldn’t be surprising to a Leo! Be careful with relationships you want to keep secret this April, since what is done in the dark could very well be brought to the light.
14Virgo: Blessings Everywhere!
Get excited, Virgo ladies! April 2018 is a time of blessings for you, in more than one area of your life. Wherever you go—work, dating, family events—you should see the Universe sending you endless opportunities to shine and take hold of the things you really want. If you are interested in starting your own business or pursuing a new career, you will be successful as long as you don’t burn out by spending all of your energy on it.
The beginning of the month is a good time to apply for a loan, since the stars favor you in this area at this time, and any financial decision you make around now should end up traveling smoothly. The blessings even extend to your family members of different signs, who could be in for new romances or improvements with money for the next six months.
13Virgo Love Horoscope: Don’t Let Your Career Come Between You And Your Partner
You Virgo gals tend to be more career-focused than love-focused at the best of times, but doing that now can have some negative consequences for your relationship. It can be tempting not to focus on your job when it’s so important to you but re-evaluate how important your partner is to you. If they are important enough not to lose, make sure you spend enough time with them and let them know that.
If you’re a single Virgo, you’re probably looking for a romantic partner who has the power to make things better for you at work. Naturally, you’ll be keeping your eyes open for someone of a high ranking in the business world, but also keep in mind that someone can improve your career prospects by supporting you from the sidelines.
12Libra: You Have An Opportunity To Be Creative, So Take It!
This April, you have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to turn your creativity into something that pays the bills. Being as passionate as you are, you’ll want to take this seriously and put any time you have into making sure that whatever you create is of quality, so it has as much chance of being successful as possible. Seriously, you have the opportunity of quitting your day job and pursuing your passion full time if things go smoothly, so bring the best version of you to anything that you create.
Starting from April 24, you have fantastic chances of experiencing financial gain, and this could be tied to your creative endeavors. Around the beginning of the month is a good time to work on business relationships and even creating a client base that will help your ideas take off to the moon.
11Libra Love Horoscope: This Month Is All About Love
Love tends to be the most important aspect of your life, and this month, in particular, you will be surrounded by it. The relationship you are in will be easy as pie this month, even though many other signs suffer from miscommunication issues. You’ll see evidence of love all around you since there are likely to be many marriages in your social circle, and it will just get you in a sentimental mood that will make your partner feel especially appreciated.
Single Libra ladies will also be surrounded by love this month. You have a high chance of meeting a long-term romantic partner, and have luck on your side in your working environment and other social gatherings. Your strong charisma will help you to attract a partner without effort, so be confident and flaunt what you got!
10Scorpio: Take The Time To Clear Up Some Bad Habits
As this is the best time for change in the year, this is the time for you to finally eliminate some old habits from your life that you no longer want bothering you. Tendencies relating to your work, daily schedule, attitude or diet have the chance of being changed for good this month, so do whatever it takes to nip them in the bud.
You could be feeling quite emotional right now, which means you have to take the time to look after all areas of your health. You’ll feel stronger emotionally if you not only sort out your feelings and treat yourself to some relaxation days, but also look after your physical health. If ever there were a time for you Scorpio ladies to be health conscious, it’s now!
9Scorpio Love Horoscope: Thank The Sun For A Super Exciting Love Life This Month
Both the Sun and Mercury are in your House of Love this month, which should bring about some very exciting lasting changes to your romantic situation. If you’re in a relationship, you might find that any resentment between you and your partner could come to the surface, but this will ultimately be a good thing because it will give you a chance to put aside your differences and grow a stronger bond. Doing this will finally allow you to have the level of intimacy that you crave.
If you’re a single Scorpio, the beginnings of romance could bloom in a number of unexpected locations. There’s a chance of you meeting someone attractive in your workplace, but you could also stumble upon an interesting romantic possibility while visiting a health expert, at an entertainment center, or at a social gathering. So hit up those parties, and if you’re especially keen, arrive at any doctor’s appointments early to check out the waiting room.
8Sagittarius: If You Do Nothing Else, Meditate
The spiritual world appeals to you more than it does any other sign, and April 2018 is the perfect time for you to increase your psychic and clairvoyant abilities. The best way to do this is through lots of meditation. Past fears, insecurities, and complexes could try to shatter the connection between you and your higher self, so meditating will help you to block out those negative voices and get closer to reaching the enlightenment that you desire.
New projects that you begin late in the month are bound for success, and platforms through which you can be creative are opening up. Money has been tight for you for a while, and sadly, that’s not set to change this April. Around July is when you should see your financial situation improving, so that’s one more reason to look forward to summer, right?
7Sagittarius Love Horoscope: Your Past Fears Are Sabotaging The Love That’s Trying To Enter Your Life
Fears rooted in the past really do seem to be a problem this month, which is why we can’t emphasize it enough: meditate! Old worries you might have about love could resurface and cause problems in your romantic relationship, so your biggest priority should be finding a way to settle those insecurities and shutting that negativity down.
If you’re a single Sagittarius, there could be some opportunities for romance early in the month, but they’ll more than likely be flings. These kinds of relationships will center around physical attraction, but don’t really have a lot of substance, so don’t get too emotionally attached. After the 17th is your best bet for finding someone who will give you some commitment, and with whom you’ll actually want to settle down.
6Capricorn: It’s Going To Be A Tough One, So It’s A Good Thing You’re A Soldier!
Yikes. It looks like this coming month is going to send you quite a few struggles and challenges. More than likely, you’ll face problems at home and with family members, and it’s also a terrible time to think about buying property. To get through the obstacles that arise this April, remember that you are a strong Capricorn woman who doesn’t let anyone or anything push her around, or stop her from achieving her goals!
While this will be an overall challenging month, you still have the potential to achieve any dreams you have, as long as you are genuinely passionate about them. The Universe can see right through any lies you’re telling yourself about what you really want, so don’t bother. To have the best month possible, spend time reflecting on what truly makes you happy, and hold on tight through the storm.
5Capricorn Love Horoscope: Change Could Be On The Horizon
Like the weather, your relationship could be in for a drastic change this month. Taking place around the 15th, a transformation might take place which will feel impossible to get through and could even scare you. But trust that whatever happens, your love life and your overall social life will be better off after the transformation has occurred. The Universe knows what it’s doing, and it has your back!
After the 20th is a good time for singles to get out there and socialize because you’ll find that you’re more compatible with a wider range of potential lovers. Your shyness and being reserved can sometimes make it difficult for you to get into relationships, but it should be easier to overcome those traits toward the end of April.
4Aquarius: Luck Is Finally Headed Your Way
After April 8, you will feel very lucky and you should trust that feeling! New doors will be opened for you on the financial front, as well as with any passions you may have. The beginning of the month will be quite busy, but try not to let yourself get overwhelmed by it—it’s a time of positive change and miracles, so remember to be grateful for every blessing that comes your way.
Even though it’s a lucky month for you, you could still suffer from being overly sensitive and getting hurt feelings. It’s a good idea not to let others know that your feelings are hurt, since more than likely you’ll come to realize that you were overreacting. Pay attention to your siblings this month, since they may be in need of time and advice that only you can give.
3Aquarius Love Horoscope: You’re Feeling More Romantic Than Normal
Romance isn’t exactly your favorite thing in the world, but believe it or not, that’s all set to change this month. You’ll be feeling much more sentimental before the 20th of the month and will show affection to your partner that they will cherish. These strong feelings could also lead you to give into temptation or chase romance, so stay grounded and in control of yourself if you don’t want to break the relationship you have.
It’s easier for you to get into a new relationship this month than it normally is, because you’ll be feeling so full of desire before April 20. You—yes, you—could even find yourself falling in love on a whim, which basically never happens. More than likely, you’re looking for someone as intelligent as you are, so college or some other learning environment is a good place to find a mate!
2Pisces: Get Real About What You Want From Life
You Pisces girls have more potential than anybody to bring your dreams to fruition, so what better time to get manifesting than mid-spring, the period of true change? You have the power to create the life you want, particularly toward the Aries-Taurus cusp near the end of the month, but the challenge will be figuring out exactly what that is. They don’t tell you to be careful what you wish for, for nothing! If you clearly know what you want, you have more of a chance of getting it and are less likely to bring about something that’s just going to be a headache.
There are a few blessings in store for you this month, and these may come either through your work colleagues or through business that you conduct on your own. The key is to grab hold of these blessings and then turn them into more blessings by being grateful for them.
1Pisces Love Horoscope: Your Relationships Will Be Harmonious And Stress-Free This Month
The best news for your April 2018? You might have to put in hard work to bring your dreams to fruition, but no such effort will be required with your love life. That’s right—it’s all smooth sailing on the love front this month! You will be charismatic and easy to get along with all month, and your relationship will be harmonious without any effort.
If you’re a single lady, you could find love nearby. Don’t look beyond your neighborhood for a lover, because the perfect person could be closer than you think. You may find that before the 17th, you’re looking for someone who will support your financial goals, and after that, you’ll be wanting someone who’s as smart as you are. Both of those desires are okay, so trust them!
