This month is a principled time for you, Pisces, as you receive further glimpses of who, at your most authentic, you really are. This is symbolized by your ruler Neptune being highlighted as the month begins, by a significant conjunction of thoughtful Mercury. The messenger planet is finally coming out of a six-week retrograde period that has indicated a thorough-going reassessment of your self-concept. Future plans have been in great ferment, continuing into April, with new beginnings that are partly painful, as you abandon old preconceptions, and partly joyous. The current lunation cycle of April is also concerned with standards and resources, combined with a powerful mandate for you to align with your deepest values and begin articulating and proceeding upon these, and only these. This is to the extent that you are able. In the timing of the Libra Full Moon of April 7th, when intimate partnership is also a huge factor for you in your process of evolutionary development, you will feel the shift and begin to more fully embrace this action.

For the first week of April your co-ruler, Jupiter, is conjunct with Pluto in Capricorn in an extremely highlighted way, bringing up interesting power dynamics. This could play out in a group or community you are part of. You might be thrust with more authority and bigger responsibilities. You could also become aware of a corrupted structure or abuse of power taking place in your social circle. Either way you look at it, these power dynamics are a big theme at the beginning of the month. You might find yourself evaluating what it means to step into a more important role. Saturn conjoined Mars in Aquarius in your soul sector is a good time to reflect on what having control really implies. You could feel helpless in the face of complex societal structures and inequalities. These feelings of helplessness could in turn fuel your desire to investigate further. Understanding power dynamics and inequalities could help you make better decisions for the future.
Venus enters Gemini on April 3rd where she will spend the next four months, due to her retrograde in May. Venus brings her influence at the base of your operations, your home, and your roots, and connects you with where you come from. You might find yourself revising your priorities and where you want to be. The Full Moon in Libra on April 7th highlights what binds you to others, your connections, contracts, and agreements. This could also be a time of illumination regarding inherited behaviors and patterns especially in connection with money. A process could be culminating of unearthing some of your fears and insecurities. This could represent a time of clarification when you are able to get to the roots of behaviors that no longer serve you.
Mercury enters Aries on The evening of April 10th after spending the last two months in your sign. Your financial autonomy could be on your mind or it could represent a time when you reassess your worth. With Mars in Aquarius transiting in your soul sector for another month and a half, independence and freedom could be on your mind. Themes of power and authority continue to be highlighted and could be influencing how much money you are bringing in or how you want to generate it.
On April 14th, the Last Quarter Moon in Capricorn could symbolize changes in connection with your prospects ahead, and your work goals. New opportunities could arise as others fade away so that you might be forced to make a decision. Your income will be on your mind but don’t make a hasty financial move based out of fear. If you feel vulnerable focus on what you have control over and the solutions will emerge. The economy is changing and with these changes, priorities are shifting also. The Sun enters the sign of Taurus on April 19th, and squares Saturn in Aquarius for a few days. There could be a general feeling of inefficiency or slow progress as you try to get things done. Your attention could be on spring-cleaning, renovations, or gardening, and it is an excellent time to tackle any long-standing issues with your home. Venus in Gemini could make you want to splurge on things for your house or simply beautify your surroundings.
The New Moon in Taurus on April 22nd represents a powerful reset. The intentions seeded at this time could bring significant and long-term changes. Friends, and people close to you, could play a supportive role. The conversations taking place now could challenge your thinking, and you might find these exchanges extremely relevant. Self-expression could also be important right now, and you might feel like writing down your thoughts or sharing them more openly. This New Moon could be a great time to start a journaling practice or other type of written project. Be open to new solutions also, or to interesting new ideas coming up during the last weekend of April as the Sun conjoins Uranus in Taurus. Things could be moving fast which requires you to make last minute decisions. Be ready to deal with unexpected circumstances, and stay flexible. This could be a stimulating weekend with many important conversations taking place. On April 27th, the square between Mercury in Aries and Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn could bring up serious conversation topics and changing circumstances.
