Important Dates For April 2024

Monday, April 1

Mercury stations retrograde in Aries today, marking an important moment in your life, as the North Node is also in Aries.

Friday, April 5

Venus, the planet of love, shifts into the fire sign of Aries today, adding intensity and determination to your romantic life. Although Venus prefers softer and more loving signs like Taurus, Libra, or Pisces, in Aries, there is an unmistakable desire that can help you start new relationships or even take an existing one to a new level.

As long as you're mindful that Venus in Aries is more prone to arguments, you can use this energy to focus on what you want for yourself and your love life and start taking action. Venus shifts into Aries just days ahead of the Solar Eclipse so that the energy will be powerful. Though you may even surprise yourself by acting in unexpected ways, the most important thing to remember is that following your heart seldom feels logical.

Monday, April 8

The powerful and total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aries will peak today, giving the eastern half of the United States great viewing potential of this event.

As Mercury stations direct, you should feel more confident and determined about what you want. You will have a deeper understanding of yourself and how you've self-sabotaged in the past, along with the resolve to do things differently moving forward.

Monthly Love Horoscopes For Each Zodiac Sign, April 2024

Aries

(March 21 - April 19)

Best Love Day: Tuesday, April 23, Scorpio Full Moon in your house of intimacy

There will be many divine synchronicities in April as the Solar Eclipse New Moon stations itself in Aries, while the Scorpio Full Moon at the end of the month brings about some powerful opportunities for intimacy.

The lesson here is that you can't find the relationship you really desire until you first choose to be who you truly are.

Pay attention to what arises in your life and the choice to make unpopular decisions, which are also those that resonate most deeply with your soul. The more you can unapologetically be yourself, then the more you will be able to attract and build a relationship with someone who sees you for who you truly are.

Scorpio energy also governs second-life partners, so there may be important developments in a new or existing relationship this month that will prove to solidify your romantic future.

Taurus

(April 20 - May 20)

Best Love Day: Tuesday, April 23, Scorpio Full Moon in your sector of relationships

As the planets begin to shift into Taurus one by one in April, you are starting to feel more yourself but may also be withdrawing from more social activities. As powerful as your solar return or birthday season is, it does tend to make you more reflective about your choices and whether you're truly honoring your inner self.

Take advantage of the Scorpio Full Moon in your sector of relationships that will be opposite, such as Sun, Jupiter, and Uranus in Taurus. Jupiter is the planet of luck, and the Sun rules actions in your external life, so you just may find that you or your partner are making some unexpected moves around this lunation. As Uranus continues to work its magic in your sign of Taurus, trust in the ability to take your periods of reflection and turn them into the chance to follow your heart more deeply.

Gemini

(May 21 - June 20)

Best Love Day: Saturday, April 20, Jupiter Uranus conjunct in Taurus in your house of soulmates

As an air sign, you are not known for being overly romantic, at least not in the way Pisces or Scorpio are. However, this drive or ideal for romance and a deeply connected love is as much a part of you as any water sign. To access and embrace this desire, though, you're going to have to connect with your inner self, which will then help you hold more space to believe that the magical love you've always dreamed of can truly be real.

The Jupiter-Uranus conjunct in Taurus will occur in your house of soulmates. Regardless of what type of language you use to describe this connection, it's profound, a true meeting of two souls, and is the type of love that you have often talked yourself out of believing is real.

But now, you will be asked to suspend your logical mind and instead lean into your more intuitive and imaginative side. By doing this, you will be more apt to follow your heart and be open to receiving a divine soul connection. To your surprise, it may be someone who is already in your life.

Cancer

(June 21 - July 22)

Best Love Day: Tuesday, April 23, Scorpio Full Moon in your sector of commitment

Although you are just starting to stretch your wings, take new opportunities, and focus on a new career chapter — it doesn't mean there won't be romantic growth as well as much as you can become overwhelmed. Then retreat into your shyness and try to remain present for what surfaces in April, as you will want to be in the space to take full advantage of every opportunity.

Scorpio energy rules over your sector of commitment, which also helps you to determine what brings you the most joy. This energy can also reconnect you with your childlike self, who always dreamed of living a particular kind of life.

As much as you do grow and change throughout life, it's important to pay homage to the inner part of you that had dreams before you had your heart broken or failed. While this lunation can bring a significant offer of commitment, or a proposal, it may also bring a new phase in your life where you are able to prioritize your happiness —  unapologetically, which is the beginning of attracting everything else you desire.

Leo

(July 23 - August 22)

Best Love Day: Tuesday, April 23, Scorpio Full Moon in your house of healing

There is a strong connection between your healing and the new beginnings you are called to create in your life. In April, the Aries energy will light up your house of abundance and expansion, activating an incredible opportunity for a new beginning in love. But the Scorpio Full Moon at the end of the month brings up a test and an opportunity for healing.

The idea with the Scorpio Full Moon is to react to a past or similar situation in a new way. As you move away from the inner child or even teenager, you will be able to step into your healing adult self more fully. It's this part of you that is fully capable of creating all you desire and stepping into new beginnings, but you first must be mindful of how you react to different situations. It's never too late to heal, nor is it to begin anew.

Virgo

(August 23 - September 22)

Best Love Day: Monday, April 8, New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries in your house of intense love

During Pisces Season, your house of relationships was strongly focused on, as the energy guided you to learn, surrender, and embrace your more emotional side. But with the new influx of Aries energy, especially the New Moon Solar Eclipse, you will now be guided to embrace your desire and profound hope for connection.

The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries will heighten your sense of desire, not just in terms of intimacy, but to be able to follow your heart and feel more connected to your partner. There may be some changes that need to take place, but by using what you learned during Pisces Season, you can also better ask for what it is you really want, which, of course, is the first step in receiving it.

Libra

(September 23 - October 22)

Best Love Day: Monday, April 8, New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries in your sector of love

Although February is often known as the month of love because of Valentine's Day, April truly brings an important and strong focus to your romantic life. This is because the leading energy is that of Aries, ruler of your house of love and relationships. During this time with the Sun, Mercury, and soon-to-be Venus in Aries, you will be gifted with a chance to return to past themes, but this time, you will have the ability to choose love at all costs.

What arises in April is especially poignant for you as the North Node in Aries and South Node in your sign of Libra are directing you toward learning, evolving, and finding your forever love. April will help you get one step closer, but you must realize that the person meant for you may not be the one you met when you were still in your wounding. Be open to new realizations and ideas, as you truly have an incredible opportunity this month to receive the love you've always deserved.

Scorpio

(October 23 - November 21)

Best Love Day: Saturday, April 20, Jupiter Uranus conjunct in Taurus in your house of romance

Matters of the heart may have felt like they've had a slow start since the beginning of 2024, but that was only to give you space so you could be prepared for all that is to come. Uranus has been in Taurus since 2018, while Jupiter entered this zodiac sign in 2023. Together, they've been working to help you create space for what you really want and to think about love in bigger (and healthier) terms.

As Jupiter conjuncts Uranus in Taurus, your house of romance, expect sudden and positive shifts in your life. You may meet someone new, have an important conversation, or receive a very tempting offer of love. The idea here is that the universe works to expand and bring abundance through unexpected moments in life. But it also helps to make every one of your dreams come true—even the ones you may have silently already given up on.

Sagittarius

(November 22 - December 21)

Best Love Day: Monday, April 8, New Moon Solar Eclipse in your sector of marriage

The North Node will be in Aries all of 2024, which will profoundly affect your romantic relationship. If you're with someone who brings true happiness to your life and helps you be your best self, then marriage or, at the very least, a proposal is in store. But the North Node works the other way as well, and if it seems that your partner has finally run out of chances or you realize that love shouldn't be this much work, then you will be redirected to someone better and healthier.

All these themes will reach a pivotal moment with the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries at the beginning of April. Both the Solar Eclipse and the New Moon represent new beginnings. It's just that it may occur more suddenly than you expected.

This may bring up events that occurred around the Aries Solar Eclipse on April 20, 2023, as you are now able to make moves and begin what this energy is seeking to create, rather than just the sneak preview that occurred last year. The truth will always be revealed in matters of love; it's just a matter of being ready to accept it.

Capricorn

(December 22 - January 19)

Best Love Day: Saturday, April 20, Jupiter Uranus conjunct in Taurus in your house of joy

Your romantic relationship should be a source of joy and not just an obligation or the checking off of a box. When you consider why you are with your partner, you should be able to say indefinable ways they add value and happiness to your life — and not simply because you didn't want to be alone or because it was time to settle down. This is something you've been considering recently, but it will reach a pivotal moment with the Jupiter-Uranus conjunct in Taurus.

As Jupiter, the planet of luck, conjuncts Uranus, the great awakener, in Taurus, expect abrupt realizations about yourself, your life, and your romantic relationship. It may be that you suddenly see your partner in a new positive light regarding how they just seem to make life better. It may also be that you are faced with the stark truth that you need to start to focus on your happiness more. Whichever way this shows up in your life, the most important aspect is to be open to the truth because that is the root of any happiness.

Aquarius

(January 20 - February 18)

Best Love Day: Saturday, April 20, Jupiter Uranus conjunct in Taurus in your sector of domestic intimacy

Since Jupiter shifted into Taurus in 2023, it has sought to expand themes surrounding your home, family, and domestic intimacy. Domestic intimacy is the type of connection you experience with a partner that you live with or spend extended time with, such as grocery shopping together, knowing how you take one another's coffee, and navigating bedtime routines. This aspect of domestic intimacy, especially for those who have been single for a long period of time, tends to become the most meaningful expression of love.

Although you are known for being a free spirit, the Jupiter-Uranus conjunct in Taurus is about to bring a new sense of abundance and expansion to your domestic intimacy sector. Whether you're officially moving in or spending more nights together, crucial conversations will arise about how you want your relationship to progress. This is because Aries' energy will light up your communication sector as you seek to create a new beginning in your life and the relationship that you desire.

Pisces

(February 19 - March 20)

Best Love Day: Monday, April 8, New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries in your house of self-worth  

Although the influx of Aries energy around the eclipse will certainly benefit your sense of financial abundance, it'll also help you truly feel worthy of receiving the love you have always craved. It's no surprise that you are a romantic at heart. Unlike other zodiac signs, you believe in great love stories with ease, but the problem arises when no relationship really matches up to what your dream love can be.

As much as you've needed to ground yourself and become more serious about love, something that you can thank Saturn in Pisces for, it's also important to never sacrifice what you truly know in your heart love is supposed to be.

The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries helps to bring you to the space where you will be able to receive the love that is meant for you because you have finally learned that it is what you are worth. This will be the beginning of a beautiful love affair in which you realize the love you craved always was possibly not with those who were undeserving of all you are.
