April Monthly Horoscope - Capricorn


Dear Capricorn, starting from the 15th when Mercury goes direct, you might find it easier to think clearly and not get that tangled up in your emotions, especially when it comes to your family or your desire for security. However, you might still feel like you’re lacking a secure base and you can tend to react strongly to this, especially on the 4th, the 5th and the 25th. The Aries New Moon on the 15th is a great time to set new goals on the home and family front, emphasizing courage and assertiveness.

Saturn is going retrograde on the 17th and Pluto on the 22nd , both in your 1st house of self-expression, appearance and temperament. Until September, you might encounter delays, obstacles and have a general feeling of uneasiness when it comes to your self-expression in the world. It might seem unclear where you’re heading or how you want to come across to others. It’s not a time to make major decisions, but to turn inwards and have patience, trusting that this difficult time is a transition for you to grow and transform beyond your insecurities. By the end of it, you’ll be more mature and you’ll have integrated more of your sign’s traits- responsibility, perseverance in the face of obstacles, patience. On the 2nd and the 26th, your inner demons might be particularly intense, you might feel like the whole world is against you. In the same time, this strong psychic energy is a resource you can use to work hard towards your goals.

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th will bring into focus how you’ve been managing your friendships and your dreams for the future since last November. What you started then will now pay you back the fruits of your labor, be it linked to the manifestation of your plans or to deep connections with others. Jupiter retrograde in the same house with the Moon shows that you’ve still got some inner work to do in these areas! With your 5th and 6th houses activated as well, April will also have a focus on romance, creativity, health and work matters.

April Summary

Are you still recovering after last month’s Full Moon avalanche? Well, there were just two of them, but it was probably enough to mark March as an intense month! April brings a fresh start in our lives. The Astrological New Year started at the Equinox is inaugurated by Aries and continues with the ingress of Sun in Taurus on the 19th this month. This date marks a transition from child-like enthusiasm and lust for life to a steadier, more practical approach, where spring has bloomed with a bang and is now slowing down to nurture and to maintain her progress.

Mercury’s had enough of his backwards movement across the sky and is turning direct on the 15th, so no more mix-ups and miscommunications for now, but this has only been child’s play compared with Saturn and Pluto’s retrogradations in Capricorn, starting with the 17th, respectively with the 22nd. These are two of the heaviest forces in our charts, so until September, when they station direct again, things will surely get serious! We’re more likely to see our responsibilities and the structures that we’ve build until now as weighting us down, so it’s a great time to slow down, simplify and restructure. It’s essential now to look inwards for our personal power and for our ability to transform ourselves, reflecting on how we can use inner alchemy to strengthen our will.

However, outer circumstances might not always be in our favour: we can get muddled up by delays or obstacles and feel like we’re not moving forward as we’d wish. Don’t despair if you need to take extra time for your responsibilities or if anxiety wants to bring you down sometimes. Everything in the Universe works through cycles and this April-September period is a test to our diligence, strength and willpower. We usually want to dart forward and get it all done, but now it’s best to have patience and to do our inner work in solitude, assessing our progress, separating what is essential from what is not and revisiting the attitude we have towards life obstacles- Capricorn style.

On a lighter note, it’s a great season when it comes to love with Venus transiting her home sign Taurus until the 24th, when steady sensuous pleasure turns into curiosity and need for stimulation with her ingress into Gemini. The harmonious aspects that she makes with Mars, Saturn and Pluto this month shout intensity, focus and transformation. The Aries New Moon on the 15th asks us to tune in into the spring spirit with enthusiasm and big plans- it’s a great time to set your intentions for this season! Later on, the Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th brings to our awareness how the efforts we’ve started last November have helped us grown into a stronger, more self-aware and more emotionally mature person, maybe not always through fun and games.

Remember these dates for April: the 2nd is a great day for mobilizing yourself and doing all that hard work that you’ve postponed until now, the 4th and 5th might bring forward some extra Mercury retro miscommunication, so it’s best to quiet your mind and speak from the heart instead and the 7th and the 11th might make it easier for you to manifest love and inner balance, with the 11th also provoking your usual patterns to be challenged and transformed. Be careful not to over-indulge yourself on the 17th and remember to keep honesty a must in your relationships- things might get really intense when it comes to love in this period! The 18th might bring a vibe of strangeness and unpredictability, which you roll with best by embracing change and the possible craziness that comes with it. On the 25th, you might re-visit some communication issues that you encountered on the 5th this month, while the 26th offers you almost super-human resources to work intensely and passionately. Finally, on the 29th, things might seem just right with the world, even with the possible setbacks you’ve experienced lately.

How will this super-intense April influence you? Read below to find out! Remember to first check your Ascendant sign if you know it, then take a look at your Sun sign as well.
