April Horoscope 2018 – Overview
We move forward into spring but this month we’ll devote a lot of time looking back! On April 1st, April Fool’s Day and Easter Sunday, we’re dealing with the Sun conjunct Mercury aspect. Under normal circumstances, this aspect highlights an exceptional time for communications of all kinds. Mercury’s ruling influence holds sway over communication and the rationale mind. But, we’re not looking at the average period here. We are still in the grips Mercury retrograde until mid-month and sure to feel its influence!
Even on the best of days for communication, we should be extra cautious! Back up any documents. Store important messages and communications in a safe place. Double check any important mailings to make sure they reach their destination. This is no time to make major decisions. Try to hold off important choices until after April 15th when Mercury goes direct at 5:20 am.
During the first half of April, retrograde energies will put all Zodiac Signs to the test. It might stir up long lost, stagnate relationships and bring them to life. This may be a time to work through old emotional wounds or karmic debt. At a minimum, you may ask why your stomach knots up when you run into that ex of yours from so long ago! These energies should bring an interesting dynamic to family gatherings on the holidays too!
With the Venus trine Saturn aspect on April 7th, this makes it a great time to consider the strength of current friendships and love connections. For those relationships no longer serving you, it may be time to sever the ties.
This month is all about the past as we enter one retro phase after another. Just two days out of the shadow of Mercury’s retrograde, we’ll see Saturn go retrograde on April 17th 8:39 pm. Just when we thought the dust was settling, the Cosmos as something else in mind. We’ve got more Karmic debt to deal with this month.
The past continues to haunt us! Saturn’s retrograde forces us to confront problems we’ve long avoided. It’s as if the Universe tests our personal strength at its core. If we learn from the lessons from the Cosmos, we can break free from our karmic chains.
You’ll have plenty of time to work out the lessons too, as Saturn goes direct on September 6, 2018 at 5:43 am. Then, Pluto goes retrograde on April 20, 2018 at 5:37pm further intensifying the focus on karmic lessons. Pluto goes direct next year, on January 21st, 2019, leaving some of us dealing with a karmic-ridden undercurrent the remainder of the year.
It’s a good thing we’ll be able to tap into our personal strength to get through these trying times. We can give thanks to the Mars sextile Jupiter aspect on April 24 for our ability to do so. We’re assured greater success when we tackle those emotional issues we’ve put off for so long. It’s a better time for tuning to our intuitive nature and using our instincts to find solutions.
On April 26, Mars conjuncts Pluto, increasing our sense of well-being, libido, and drive. By the time the full moon enters Scorpio highlighting our desires on April 29th, we’ll be feeling like our old self again! Finally, we witness the return and rise of personal power!
April Horoscope 2018 – All 12 Zodiac Signs
The disruptive energies in the first half of April are enough to rub any Aries soul the wrong way. Aries prefers the direct approach and retrograde energies have you feel like your spinning your wheels! Frustrations will rise to the surface for the first two weeks of the month. Make sure you keep your temper in check so there are no amends you end up having to make later.
The sluggish energies will remain until Mercury goes direct. To satisfy Aries’ need for immediate gratification and near-instantaneous results, look to reorganizing things. It’s a terrific time to start that spring cleaning session. Declutter your space, organize your files, clear out that email inbox and archive. Look at is as creating an invitation for positive energies to enter your space.
This is not the month for making serious decisions about a love connection. If you’re in a relationship, you’ll want to see it through until mid-month. Use this time to allow any unrest to settle. It will let Aries look at the relationship status through a calmer and clearer mindset.
Aries, now is a good time to talk with your partner about the plans you might have for the future. Just don’t set them into motion until the end of the month. If you’re not in a relationship, the first half of the month is an ambiguous time to start up a serious one. Yes, you’re an Aries and one for making quick, land-on-your-feet decisions. But, the retrograde action this month promises to pull the rug out from underneath you as you try to land!
Don’t look to fast responses or actions the first half of the month either. Anything influenced or controlled by communications remains affected, including your love interests and career aims. Take heart, your Aires angst won’t last the entire month through. You’ll feel your personal power returning as you near the 26th. Once full moon arrives, you’ll be back to your old warrior-self, ramming through the small obstacles you face and creating instant results with your efforts.

Concentration is on the inner realm this month Taurus. The first few weeks of April rapid change is not recommended, and hey, that’s just fine by you! Taurus has no problem when the Cosmos calls for a little inertia on your part! There’s way too much chaos in the external world now for you to even broach the subject of change, moreover invoke any!
The safest places for your dreams and goals remain in the realm of the subconscious and dreams. Use the first two weeks of April to incubate your visions. There’s time enough to give birth to new concepts when you’re good and ready to do so. In the meantime, use your eye for everything beautiful to deck out your home and to refresh your surroundings. Now is the time to dress up the comfy fortress you crave.
Use this month’s New Moon in Leo occurring on April 22 as a cue to launch dreams and projects. Use the growing moon phases from New Moon to the Full Harvest Moon on April 29 to push your endeavors forward. Whether investing in financial investments or new relationships, Taurus can move slowly toward success while letting the feminine moon energies empower the process.
You’ll experience a nice increase of energy right around the 26th, which is a pleasant change from the sleepy, laid back feeling you’ve had since Mercury retrograde went into effect on March 23rd. It will feel like an awakening, and the fresh spring vibrations will serve as fuel for your spirit!

You’ll find this month promises challenges for you as your ruling planet, Mercury squares Mars on April 4th. This makes for a time of quick thought processes during a period of chaotic communications and opens the door to a whole host of problems! With Air as your influential element, you’re all intellect and love conversation, but the first half of April promises one miscommunication after another.
Even if you say something in jest, people are apt to take you seriously. Now is time to slow down and think before you speak or act! Be equally careful with your reactions. You may misunderstand what another is trying to say and think an aggressive response is necessary. To avoid regrettable conditions, take a few breaths before responding to anyone.
You’re quite opinionated, which is one of your better attributes. But, it’s best to hold back on personal opinions until mid-April and beyond. At a minimum, consider softening the words you use so you soften the blow of your opinion to the recipient of your words. Keep your sharp, sardonic wit about you to avoid inflicting emotional injuries on those you love and care about.
In the workforce, this is time for solo efforts and no time for teamwork if you can avoid it. The more irons in the fire at this point only contribute to troubling conditions. You can cut the tension between you and co-workers like a knife as the retrograde period has everyone’s radar up and active. Inner realm work, solo projects, and lone pursuits are highlights of this time.
On the home front (when flighty Gemini decides to take a bit of time to settle down and kick back), you’ll find the greatest comfort. Consider your home a fortress where you can keep most of the outside world and it’s forces at bay. Remember though, if you have a mate, your actions will have a ripple effect this month. If Gemini is feeling down, you’ll spread the same mood to your mate. While a challenging month to work through, slowing down and thinking before acting should keep you safe from communication mishaps. In the meantime, keep your chin up and enjoy spending much of your time in the realm of imagination and dreams!
When the Sun trines Saturn on April 29, that’s the time for single folks to start looking for a lifelong mate. This is a period of heightened details, so your spring clean efforts will pay off if you start them at this time. It’s also a good time to address minor relationship issues.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Chrysocolla is a beautiful blue and sea green colored stone that instills peace and balance during times of stress. Gemini can use the stone to help control emotions while drawing negative energies away from the physical body.

Cancer enters the month of April on a bit of a rough emotional patch. Already enduring the negatives of Mercury retrograde for nine days, you’ve already hightailed it out of the physical realm into a safe withdrawal into your inner realm. You’ve resolved yourself to staying in the safety of the emotional realm until chaos subsides. You won’t be in hiding long. Because you’re ultra-sensitive and intuitive, you’re apt to feel Mercury retrograde’s action lifting a few days in advance. This is especially true on April 14, when we’ll see the influence of Jupiter sextile Pluto.
You’ll feel on top of your game now. You’ll finally shed the heavy cloak of emotion you’ve been drawing around you. You’re like Linus from “Peanuts” with his favorite blanket carrying your emotional cargo everywhere you go. But, your friends and loved ones know you too well. They find it best to just leave you be as you work through any emotional changes. Mid-month has you emerging from your shell and letting go of your pessimistic views.
The last half of the month your full of energy and ready to take on the goals you’ve put into action. This is a good time to pick up where you left off and to tie up loose ends before moving forward with the next project. If Cancer works outside the home, you’ll easily achieve the goals you set or the tasks for which you are responsible.
If your kingdom is the home front, the first half of the month is best for a detailed spring clean. The second half is perfect for a full restock of necessary supplies and a refreshed look. Just a coat or two of paint will make you feel like you’re in a brand-new atmosphere. The effort lends to an improved mood overall for the remainder of the month.
As your ruling planet peaks on the 29th, it’s a power day for all Cancers. It’s an excellent time to emerge from the emotional waters and to remove your protective shell. Let someone into your inner realm if you are looking to make an emotional bond with someone. Otherwise, share some intimate cuddle time with the one you love the most.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Moonstone is excellent for solving relationship problems and instilling love and compassion in existing relationships. It aligns with Cancer’s ruling planet is the Moon. Thus, the Moonstone holds sway over the ebb and tide of emotions.

Even the charismatic, regal Leo holds no power over retrograde energies and must conform to the chaotic vibes or pay the penalty for not doing so. For you, the first half of the month is about evaluation, defining (or-redefining), and rest. Keep your busier ambitions for the second half of the month. Downplay all efforts at this time, even your social interactions which you crave so much. Think of retrograde as a time for reviewing your past.
Slow down during this period. Your normal Leo go-get-em attitude might get you in some social knots if you don’t pull back your energies. Use this time to tie up loose ends and to complete those projects you’ve left undone. You’re not one to leave too many things to stagnant for long. So, make the most of these retrograde’s energies while they last. Consider this a period where you can transform existing plans, re-strategize projects, and from the reevaluation, hone the pathway to any goal you set.
Look to old worn out relationships or connections no longer serving you. The retrograde’s power will lift on the 15th, but not without a bang! Some of the deepest emotional wounds may rise to the surface of your consciousness when Chiron enters Aries where it remains until April 14, 2027. Here Leo is encouraged to address this emotional injury head on, once and for all.
If you feel like your life path is ambiguous, now is the time to define what your goals and passions are. There’s a difference between existing and going from one routine to another and living life while experiencing every moment. The second half of April is all about experience and mindful living. This is a perfect time to take on a new job, start a new relationship, or to learn a new skill.
The second half of the month is superb for travel, both domestic and international. Experiencing the world from various angles and perspectives contribute to your intellectual growth. Consider a spa getaway where you can get that “royal” treatment you know you deserve!
Healing Crystals & Stones: Topaz, particularly the blue variety, helps improve communications. This makes it perfect for Leo to carry when communication energies are disturbed or chaotic.

As a Virgo, you are all too aware of the retrograde status. You also know how to make the most of it. After all, Mercury is your ruling planetary influence. This, of course, is the natural time for you to make order out of any chaotic elements in your life. Instead of invoking anything new, you can take the time to reevaluate your job, household, family, relationships, and pursuits. Now, you’ll enjoy a good two-week period of additional retrograde time to continue reorganizing, restricting, reshuffling, and reshaping the various aspects of your life so they are honed to your much-coveted perfection!
Time for cleaning out old files on your personal PC and reassessing the family budget. Balance your bank statements, assess the diversity of your financial portfolio, and by all means, check your credit reports for any potential errors. Break into that closet you’ve thought about boarding up and free yourself of the moth-ridden things no one in your house will ever wear again. All year long you struggle to find the time to take care of the tasks you keep putting off. You only get three or four retrograde periods each year, so make the most of it!
After covering loose ends, and completing projects started and left unfinished, Virgo feels a whole lot lighter on April 15th when Mercury goes direct. Perfection loving Virgos will feel a sense of peace forging forward the rest of the month, now that those nagging tasks are finally addressed!
Look to the remainder of the month to experience the things you love doing the most. Get out those art supplies and just let yourself go (And hey, don’t be afraid to get messy Virgo, you’re washable!). Take a few hours each weekend drawing, journaling, crocheting, embroidering, or doing whatever brings you peace. Plan some creative family time this month too; it will draw you closer to your loved one’s while you all share an outlet for any excess tension you might have accumulated during the weeks prior.
The second half of the month are a heightened time for romantic endeavors. The full moon on the 29 highlights desires, so a night out on the town with your love can prove to have a super romantic (an erotic) conclusion. Looking for love? Keep your eyes open the last week of April heralding in positive energies for startup relationships both in business and love.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Sardonyx is a stone aligning with virtuous behavior making it the ideal stone for the “virgin” Virgo. The stone helps stimulate positive energies and to achieve spiritual goals. It instills confidence and happiness during trying times.

There’s nothing more unsettling to harmonious loving Libra than confusing, disorderly Mercury retrograde energies. It’s best for balance-seeking Libra to do just that – seek to remain in balance during this unruly period until the time passes on the 15th of April 2018. It’s even better to reevaluate one’s conditions and bring balance to things overlooked than to start anything new during the first 15 days of the month.
On the home front, look at tasks long unaddressed and overdue for an overhaul. Whether it’s time for a refresh in the interior decorating department, or your front yard needs some serious landscaping, bring beautifying elements into play to bring balance to the task. Libra has a natural eye for what’s beautiful and pleasing. Venus being your ruling planet, you have the natural ability to instill love into everything you touch. Refresh your palace so it remains the soft place you need it to be when you need somewhere to land.
Keep your social circles tight during retrograde. Don’t take anything you hear through the gossip grapevine too seriously either. Remember the game in kindergarten where you sit in a circle and say two words to the person next you? After doing that about twenty times the words “French fries” turn into “onion rings,” with no logical reason for doing so. It’s the same during retrograde. Everything you hear should be taken with a grain of salt.
Instead of trying to implement your control over things you have little control over, you’ll find a lot of peace and harmony when you learn to let go. Pull back and use a new lens to view your relationships, whether friendships or a love connection. If you’ve been biting your lip in your love life, hold off until after the 15th to say what’s on your mind. It will help prevent any confusion between you and your lover. You may find old friends and lovers pop up out of nowhere this period. Make sure you really want to revive these relationships before you invest in them.
On April 20th, the Sun and Venus influence the career sector. Libra, you may find someone backs you or provides a path to a promotion or helps with project completion. The end of the month is perfect for traveling endeavors and getting into deals with new business partners. Take the last two weeks of the month to explore something new that you’ve been longing to learn. It’s a good time to launch all new learning endeavors. You may find you master French with incredible ease! N’est-ce pas merveilleux?
Healing Crystals & Stones: Lapis Lazuli stimulates understanding which is the key to achieving balance in all areas of life. Balance is what Libra covets so Lapis Lazuli is perfect for Libra personalities in April 2018.

Strong personality that you are Scorpio, you know when things are off with transportation, communication, cognitive functioning, ideas, and techy-gizmos. Retrograde leaves chaotic rubble in its wake, overturning the most well-laid plans. What’s a desire seeking Scorpio to do? Well, as the stars would have it, Scorpio is better off staying away from signing anything on the bottom line until April 16th. As eager as Scorpio might be to pursue business endeavors or major personal purchases, contracts are not something to approach during the first 15 days in April 2018.
If you find it impossible to hold off until retrograde subsides, get yourself an extra set of eyes to review the fine print. Reread everything you plan on agreeing to in a document. Put it down. Walk away. Come back and review it again. Try to let 24 hours pass before you give up your John Hancock on anything important. The extra measures will hopefully help you avert some serious pitfalls in the weeks and months to come. Scorpio may feel like you have fire-ants in your pants until the 15th, but being patient is much to your benefit.
Since your techno-gadgets are likely to get all glitchy during this time, it’s time to tend to them. Use the first two weeks of the month to upgrade and update your antivirus. Run several scans to get all the gunk off your PC. If you’ve been neglecting that inbox until you have more time, use this time to get rid of messages you no longer need. Clean up your back up storage and portable USB devices so your files are neat and organized. If you have loose ends in the career sector, use this time to conquer them.
Productivity is important to Scorpios. Now’s a good time to reevaluate your schedule and how efficient you plan your time. If you have any time left over, check out your finances, bank statements, and investment portfolio making sure is all pristine and perfected.
The second half of the month is a time to evaluate your health, especially around April 16. If you’ve been putting off seeing the nutritionist, now is a good time to do it. Need to start a new work out? No time like the present. The endorphins will give you the extra fuel you crave to be even more productive than ever.
The Sun and Venus join together to influence love and relationships around April 20th. This makes for a beautiful time to start up a brand-new love connection. It’s also a great time to revive an existing relationship by instilling some extra romantic elements. Plan a date night out or a weekend getaway. The final week of the month is particularly good for traveling. With Sun and Venus influences, this is also a great time to pursue a career path in which Scorpio is passionate about.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Blue Tiger Eye helps empower one’s resolve and keep a person grounded. Ambitious Scorpio can use the energies to hold themselves back from falling victim to their own ambitions in April 2018.

Independent Sagittarius is not one who likes to be under anyone’s or anything’s thumb. So, retrograde energies may cause a bit of irritation for the freedom-appreciating Sagittarian soul. Nevertheless, to defy these energies is unwise. The Cosmic energies are in place for a higher purpose and we’ve got to learn to use them to our advantage – This includes the most stubborn of Sagittarian personalities! You won’t be in the clear until April 16.
In your personal life it’s time to put your feet up. Sagittarius is an ambitious soul and in no doubt deserving of a break. The first two weeks can serve as chill time. Realign your mind, your chakras, or both! If you were smart and planned in advance (which is what a Sagittarius does by nature), you might have even slotted your vacation time for this period. If so, enjoy!
Free-time is super for rest, but spring harkens the time for a spring clean too. Hit the basement, attic, closets, and all those hideaway nooks you’ve been putting off cleaning until you have more time. Finish up things left hanging until a better time. Reassess everything in your life from relationships to finances.
Don’t sign documents unless you’re desperate. If there’s no way out of doing so, call on a friend or loved one to read over what you’ve already read. A second pair of eyes can point out things you might miss. If possible, wait a day or two before making any big decisions final. Incubate on ideas before solidifying them. Remember, in retrograde times, you need time to think before sealing the deal!
The second half of the month shines for love and career, particularly from April 20th onward. The Sun and Venus join on the 20th holding influence over work. Here you may find you gain recognition for your sharp Sagittarius skills or achievement as the Sun shines on you making your skills visible to all. With the Sun and Venus influence working together, the path of love is lit up! It’s an easy time to find a mate and to renew the connection with an existing love.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Labradorite, the Shaman’s Stone, can help Sagittarius explore the dream realm by providing entry. It can help Sagittarius tune into their intuition and psychic skills, which can serve as their compass during tumultuous times this April.

The first two weeks of April 2018 may make you feel like every day is April Fool’s Day, Capricorn. Why? Because you are the personality that is already so easy to misunderstand. Add a bit of retrograde confusion to the mix and all hell breaks loose! You hide the deepest part of yourself behind a wall of confidence and a cool, calm, and collected facade. Underneath, you are just as vulnerable to retrograde’s chaos, you’re just not willing to show it! Still, this is no time for you to go and get all rebellious as you try to defy the Cosmos!
Because Capricorn is the one to tell it like it is and have no desire to hide your opinion, your words may carry an extra bite during the beginning weeks of April 2018. It’s best to take a breath or two (or three or four) before you release your voice! You may find yourself in a position of having to apologize for misunderstandings and hurt feelings which were never your intent in the first place if you aren’t careful.
Your natural abilities to detect when someone is telling a lie or when something is amiss may be off when retrograde rules. Believe little of what people say off the cuff and stay away from contractual agreements when possible. You have high problem-solving skills, but Capricorns don’t want to have to use them because of a kerfuffle during Mercury’s retrograde movement.
During the first week of the month, the Venus trine Saturn aspect will have you reconsidering your romantic connections. Normally, you are loyal to the bitter end. But, when Jupiter goes retrograde on April 17th, if your relationship is no longer serving you, then you’ll start to see it through a new lens. Karmic debts are repaid at this time. If your relationship has outlived your growth and is no longer supporting you, it’s time to cut ties.
Career pursuits are best during the final weeks of the month when the Sun and Venus work together lending positive influences in this sector. If you’re looking for a promotion, this is a good time to ask. If you’re applying for jobs, you can start mailing out those perfected resumes! The final week of the month is exceptional as a creative outlet. Take some downtime to explore your creative side. It will help relieve and residual frustrations still lingering from earlier in the month.

Freedom loving Aquarius can make the most of the backwards motion of Mercury retrograde during the first two weeks in April 2018. Now is the time (if you haven’t already started) to look back on the past and to let go of old wounds, painful memories, and things holding you back. Aquarius has the tendency to always look forward so looking back two to three times a year can help keep forward-thinking personalities in balance.
Of course, Aquarius loves all the technologically advanced resources, tools, toys, and gadgets. As such, Mercury retrograde can prove a frustrating time when things go haywire with any technology Aquarius appreciates. It’s a good time to refresh software, update programs, and run virus checks on computers and laptops. Change the batteries in clocks, watches, smoke detectors, and anything else battery powered. Use the two weeks to approach the chaotic energy in constructive ways so you’ll maintain some element of control over the situation.
During the shadowy time early in the month, don’t let your rebellious nature get the best of you. The Aquarius love of conversation might be your downfall if you don’t choose words carefully. Don’t let your ego run away with you as you may come across as condescending. You can end up pushing people away instead of drawing them near.
Your generous side will really shine after April 20th. This is the best time to engage in humanitarian endeavors and to work for charitable organizations. Volunteering will prove particularly fulfilling under the Sun and Venus influence entering near the end of the month. It’s a good time to flesh out your career goals too, as the Sun lights a path that will address your greatest passions.
The first part of the month is about reflecting on existing relationships. It’s time to shape them up or cut them loose. The second part of the month is for starting up new relationships and instilling some tender loving care into existing connections. Venus’ influence highlights love connections and romantic elements during this time. This is no time to run from our commitments.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Blue Celestite is a stone Aquarius can use to tune into the higher mind, Cosmos, angelic beings or spirit guides. When things get rough during April, this stone brings in a gentle energy to sooth the Aquarian soul.

Pisces, you are the wallflower of the zodiac, and love to hide away in the realm of emotion. But even the deep waters of emotion cannot escape the influence of Mercury’s retrograde action. Until April 15, 2018 the retrograde energies will turn emotions on their head. You may feel foggy in the mind and confused at heart. Take heart, you aren’t alone.
Make sure you don’t make any big romantic decisions at this time. This period is not about action, but reaction. Look at relationships and evaluate them from all angles. Explore how these relationships make you feel and if they are serving you. If the love connection you have is bringing you peace, then wait until the end of the month to bring more romance to the fore. If the relationship is fizzling, it’s time to put it to rest.
The same goes for friendships. Consider this a time to weed the relationship garden. It will leave room for you to grow new, more supportive connections. Retrograde is a time for looking back on the years past and evaluating how far you’ve come. Pisces can gain great confidence if you find yourself satisfied with your present position in life. If not, it’s time for strategic planning. You spend a lot of time dreaming about success. Use the last two weeks of April 2018 to put a strategic plan in action to achieve your dreams.
Being so comfortable in the emotional realm, the Full Moon in Scorpio on the 29th feels natural to you. You welcome the moon’s influence as you instill more passionate elements into your love life. If you’re seeking love, it’s prime time to find it. If Pisces is already in love, it’s time to renew your commitment to your existing love.
Healing Crystals & Stones: Amethyst is a stone that can help Pisces avoid the “intoxicating” effect of emotions. The stone can help dreamy Pisces remain grounded while setting goals and achieving dreams.
