Spring is here and it’s not the cruelest month, either. It’s actually quite ethereal and dreamy, with what the stars have in store for you. Now that Mercury Retrograde is over, communication has become much easier. A new moon comes into play on April 5th, creating new beginnings and fresh starts. There’s a lot going on this month with Venus going into Neptune, and Jupiter retrograding in Sag, meaning you crave deeper relationships with partners and friends.
You’ll want to focus on what you want this month in the long-term, and start to make plans to set everything in motion. Don’t forget to celebrate your successes, but not to get too cocky so you become complacent with what you have in the present.
Here we go:
This month is all about your spiritual, family, and long-term goals. What is that you want?
Money is on your mind this month. Check to see if you’ve been paid. You might feel like you have a lot of expenses this month, so be prepared.
You are full of clarity this month and feel like you are lucky with every step you take. Use this attitude to your advantage at work.
While you tend to be emotional, you often have your guard up. Allow yourself to be vulnerable this month.
You are all about setting financial and long-term goals this month. Don’t be afraid to get what you want - and ask for it.
This is your month of love. You feel extra connected to yourself and your body and want to share it with others. Don’t be afraid.
It’s time to marry your creativity with your health and create better habits and routines that feed your mind, body, and soul.
You are in love and all about love right now. Be extra thoughtful and dream up some cute dates.
You are seeking balance this month with work, life, and love. Get out your agenda and don’t be afraid to schedule everything, even right down to your chill time. This is a busy month for you.
Boundaries. It’s all about setting boundaries this month with work and love.
You feel at odds with your finances and love life this month. Be clear when you communicate what you want, to yourself and others.
Your career is your focus this month. Write down what you want to accomplish this year.
