MONTH OF April
Free up some calendar space, Gemini, because your popularity is on the rise! The Sun is roaring through Aries and your eleventh house of group activity until April 19, putting you in your social-butterfly element. Networking and collaborations take top billing, and you’ll be an in-demand guest wherever you go, whether that’s online or IRL. Look for kindred spirits to team up with, especially around a world-bettering cause or innovative idea. As parts of the world make a wobbly return to in-person activities, take inventory: Where have you been out of sync with your circle? Patch up any faltering friendships and get fragmented group dynamics back on solid ground.
A historic moment will arrive on April 12, when Jupiter makes its once-every-13-years conjunction (meetup) with enchanting, compassionate Neptune. This boundless, freedom-driven connection will take place in idealistic Pisces, the zodiac sign co-ruled by both Jupiter and Neptune. They haven’t merged here since 1856, a time when abolitionism, women’s suffrage and the Spiritualist movement were having their heyday. For you, the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction will supercharge your tenth house of career and long-term goals, cranking up your conjuring powers and creative visualization.
This month ends with a special twist. Not only is there a second new moon on April 30, aka a black moon, but it happens to be a solar eclipse. This is the first of 2022’s four eclipses, kicking off the two-week spring eclipse season. Get ready for some sweeping but helpful changes!
Popularity rising! Aries season and the Aries new moon
Get out and win the public over, Gemini! The Sun is making its annual lap through Aries and your eleventh house of teamwork and technology until April 19. At the April 1 new moon in Aries, your dream squad could start to come together. While this new moon could take six months to fully unfold, begin stocking your Gemini crew with some thought leaders and innovative types who can really expand your vision. Spark up the creative collaborations and explore who can bring new ideas to Team Gemini.
This year, your ruling planet, Mercury, and healer-feeler Chiron are both hanging out in Aries, close to the new moon. Translation? Your communicative superpowers are dialed up even higher. You may be called upon to bring a fractured group together or to help a friend through a crisis that you have personal experience with. Turns out your painful experiences have morphed into wisdom, something you might be surprised to discover when you’re suddenly in the on-the-spot therapist role. Could this turn into a bigger venture that helps people, like a podcast, a blog or a book? If you feel the tingle of inspiration, follow the trail and see where it leads you.
Apply strong filters at the April 4 Mars-Saturn conjunction
Ready to shake things up again, Gemini? With your momentum returning, you can start taking calculated risks near April 4, when assertive Mars teams up with goal-getter Saturn in Aquarius and your venturesome ninth house. Stay alert for a business travel opportunity or a chance to share your ideas on a broader stage.
But be careful: These planets operate at very different speeds, and their combined effect can be like having one foot on the accelerator while the other slams the brakes. You’ll need to hit the right “cruise control” setting to make sure you don’t either bulldoze people with your opinions or, on the flip side, censor your ideas and watch someone else take credit for them!
Under this Mars-Saturn influence, you could experience a wave of self-doubt or a momentary loss of faith. Hang in there, Gemini. Your urge to rebel could also flare up if you feel suppressed by someone who’s trying to pull rank or keep you from expressing your opinions fully. Today, candid remarks could land you in hot water that could scald your reputation, even if you think you’re taking a stand for free speech. Find a way to privately vent rather than going rogue on social media. It probably wouldn’t hurt you to refine your message a bit more anyway.
Mars and Saturn are known as the “malefic” (unfavorable or challenging) planets. Their last conjunction was on March 31, 2020, right as the United States ordered a stay-at-home quarantine for 240 million Americans and the pandemic’s reality struck hard. With both planets in Aquarius, the sign of community and society, we can expect to feel the strain of their combined transit once again.
The April 12 Jupiter-Neptune conjunction is a historic day
What do you want to manifest, Gemini? On April 12, auspicious Jupiter and super-attractor Neptune will make an ultra-rare convergence in Pisces and your tenth house of career, leadership and ambition. This boundary-expanding duo hasn’t met here since 1856—so get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime moment, Gemini.
Your powers of visualization have super-strength today. Use them to focus on your loftiest goals, particularly your professional path. If you could wave a magic wand (because you kind of have one here), where would you want to see yourself? If you’re the vision-boarding type, this transit is ideal for capturing those desires in a collage or some kind of pictorial format.
Reality checks might be in order today, though. Have you come down with a case of imposter syndrome? Foggy Neptune’s confusing effect can be magnified by Jupiter, leading you to second-guess yourself or doubt some of your dreams. Losing perspective can be disorienting, so reach out to a grounding, sensible person if you start to get paranoid or anxious.
At the same time, this Jupiter-Neptune conjunction IS an opportunity to “lose yourself” and break free of any limiting structures or commitments. If you’re feeling the urge to reinvent your life or to unearth an entirely new response to “so, what do you do?” this transit could light the way!
Step into the spotlight at the April 16 Libra full moon
You’ve been the ultimate team player during Aries season, but midmonth, the stars prod you onto center stage. Get ready for your closeup, Gemini! On April 16, the annual Libra full moon beams into your fifth house of passion and self-expression. A budding relationship could turn Instagram-official, or you could attract a playful (and pleasurable) spring fling. For couples, this full moon can turn up your attraction, but beware of knee-jerk reactions and drama too.
Caution: There IS such a thing as bad publicity, so craft your hooks and pitches with the utmost care. Say what you mean and mean what you say—or else say nothing at all. This year’s Libra full moon will get sideswiped by a harsh square from intense Pluto in your private, vengeful eighth house. Think carefully about the impact of your message before you share, especially on social media or among a group of people you only know casually. Your intentions could be misread, particularly if you don’t take a firm stand for your values. Being wishy-washy (a common trap for Geminis) could erode people’s trust in you. This can happen in your personal and your public life. Extreme clarity is key!
If you’re not clear on your stance, silence is your superpower. Hold off on the proclamations while words are so irrevocable, an effect that will only intensify when Pluto makes an exact square to the Aries Sun on April 18. Issue a self-imposed gag order and upgrade your image instead with some great new photos or a rebrand of your personal profiles. Of course, an image can say a thousand words as well, so bear that in mind!
Taurus season begins on April 19
Go easy on yourself, especially starting April 19, when the Sun begins its monthlong plunge through Taurus and your healing, restful twelfth house. Over the next four weeks, tie up loose ends in preparation for your birthday and Gemini season, which begins on May 20. Until then, take it slow and respect your feelings. Don’t force yourself to take on more than you can humanly handle—this is your time to rest and reset!
Pluto turns retrograde on April 29
Are your attachments based in healthy dynamics—or is obsession, avoidance and resentment brewing underneath? We know: Not exactly lighthearted conversation, Gemini. But it’s a topic you might face starting at the end of April, when Pluto, ruler of unconscious patterns and blind spots, turns retrograde.
Calculating Pluto will reverse through Capricorn and your intimate eighth house from April 29 to October 8. During this reflective time, you could get an up-close view of your own “shadow” around charged topics like sex, emotions, money and shared power. Where might you be projecting onto others or contributing to negative patterns in a relationship? If you find yourself pointing fingers or feeling like the always-done-wrong victim, read up class=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” on what the Gottman Institute calls the Four Horsemen: criticism, contempt, defensiveness and stonewalling.
Pluto retrograde is your opportunity to make peace with any parts of yourself that aren’t getting you what you want in life. If jealousy arises or a person triggers you, try to see them as a mirror or a messenger. How are they reflecting some part of YOUR life that’s out of alignment? The people who get under your skin could be spotlighting areas where you need to make a major change or set firmer boundaries.
The Taurus solar eclipse April 30 starts a healing cycle
Time to release a piece of the paclass=”body-el-link standard-body-el-link” st that no longer serves you? The month ends with a second new moon, also called a black moon, the official name for a second new moon that falls in a single calendar month. And this one is even MORE rare because it also happens to be a partial solar eclipse. One thing is clear: April is lined up for making bold beginnings!
The solar eclipse will sweep through Taurus and your twelfth house of rest, closure and release. Think of it as a chance to slow your on-the-go Gemini pace and turn inward. Identify hidden or subconscious blocks that could be in the way of you making a fresh start.
This is the second eclipse in a series falling on the Taurus/Scorpio axis from November 2021 until October 2023. These eclipses are revolutionizing your approach to wellness and shifting the line between control and surrender for you. Where do you need to pay MORE attention, and where can you loosen your grip?
So, where is this thing going? Amorous Venus is in Pisces and your future-oriented tenth house from April 4 until May 2. You’ll be attracted to stable and responsible types now, and you’ll want to make romantic plans with your partner if coupled.
Discussing anything too concrete is best left until the second half of the month, when action planet Mars joins Venus in Pisces on April 14, staying until May 24. With both Venus and Mars here, the urge to merge could really strike hard! Prior to that, Mars is wrapping a visit to Aquarius and your freedom-loving ninth house, putting the “lust” in wanderlust, and perhaps a touch of that “wander” in your eye. Explore your options and keep things a little more flexible during the first half of April.
When Venus and visionary Jupiter unite in Pisces on April 30, your walls could come tumbling down—especially since this day also features a solar eclipse in Taurus and your receptive twelfth house of fantasy and surrender. Venus and Jupiter are known as the “benefics” for their positive and helpful influence. Now, the idea of a permanent deal with a sexy co-pilot sounds like an adventure worth taking! For couples, this is a day for renewed inspiration about your union. Set your sights on a shared lofty goal that lights you both up. If you’re recently split and still nursing a broken heart, April 30 is a powerful day to set your sights on a new future path while allowing yourself to process your full spectrum of emotions.
The first full month of spring is off to the races. The Sun is in Aries and your collaborative eleventh house until April 19, lighting up group projects and bringing dynamic team members your way, especially at the April 1 Aries new moon. With go-getter Mars in the most visionary and ambitious parts of your chart all month long, you’re feeling driven to reach for the stars. And they might just reach for you first, especially near April 12, when enterprising Jupiter and super-attractor Neptune unite in Pisces and your tenth house of success.
The April 16 Libra full moon could bring a spotlight moment, perfect for a splashy launch or putting your talents on display. But pace yourself after April 19, when the Sun sinks into Taurus and your twelfth house of rest, inviting you to slow down and allow your imagination to wander. If you’ve been trying to force an outcome, pause and see what comes your way when you simply stay open to receiving.
