Your April 2021 Monthly Horoscope
It finally feels like Spring has finally arrived - thank goodness - as we move into April. Once again, we sat down virtually with Agne Aurelia, London based astrologer and founder of Sirius Rising - @siriusrising_astrology - to see what this month has in store for us. Agne uses astrology to provide guidance and encourage self-discovery and healing, and we love the sound of that as lockdown eases and new anxieties may begin to form.
 
April is gearing up to be a month of change due to varied energies from transits, but overall a productive and busy time as we start to see glimpses of "normal" life return. Whilst a lot can be done, there may be tension in the air resulting in people being more sensitive than usual, so try and take some time to make April as positive as possible. Enjoy our slow and steady reemergence. 
 
Remember - The April horoscope is a general guideline to navigate the month for each Archetype. We are our charts, not just our Sun/Rising Sign. Read your monthly horoscopes below to see what the next 30 days may have in store for you…
 
 
Aries Rising or Aries
Happy Birthday Aries! It’s time for a make-over, think about the year ahead and how you want to be seen. The first half of the month is great to finish any leftover business and get on top of things. Your energy might be impatient, so to avoid bursts of temper, engage in competitive sports, reclaim that summer body! From the 12th, start new projects and take the lead as your energetic vigour will inspire those around you. If you have been feeling overlooked at work, you might want to set things straight. Be careful not to burn any bridges, share your concerns with calm boldness and transparency. A long awaited promotion or pay rise might be on its way! From the second half of the month, be careful not to be too indulgent with your spending. Venus conjunct Lilith might tempt you to splash around to get that instant gratification. Instead, you should strive for simplicity and sustainable living. At the end of the month, Pluto will start moving retrograde in your 10th house of career and achievement. Do not be surprised if your vocation will no longer please you, step back to ponder if the chosen path reflects your true values. If you are feeling trapped perhaps it is time to create a new opportunity in a true trailblazer Arian fashion!

Taurus Rising or Taurus
Taurus, the first half of the month you might feel a bit impatient and anxious. No matter how much effort you’ll put into work, you might feel like you are getting nowhere. Indulge in meditation and yoga to find balance between assertiveness and stillness. Use this opportunity to banish your fears through reiki practices or cord cutting ceremonies. From the 14th, glorious Venus will enter your first house joining Lilith and Uranus. You might turn a few heads, feeling and looking more alluring and irresistible than ever! The second half of the month is your turn to shine as new opportunities may come your way! Remember to embrace change and try new things; work as a team, forge new contacts and connect to those who see your potential. On the 28th the Full Moon in your 7th House in Scorpio might bring some sort of culmination in your close relationships. It’s a great opportunity to review your values around partnerships and how you show up for others. Do not hold onto someone who cannot accept your glorious shine. Those who empower you will stay and those who try to control you will slowly fade out of your life. It’s time to focus on yourself, your goals and ambitions.

You can push personal projects and establish your authority, don’t lose the momentum. The Full Moon in your 5th house and Pluto Retrograde in the 7th might bring some sort of culmination into your love life.

Connect to teams that can contribute in areas where you think you can improve. End of the month your energy might drop. It’s okay, instead of forging ahead, let life slow down. Review your routine and find a balance between rest and work. Full Moon in Scorpio might bring a lot of emotion in the domestic area of your life, you might feel you are being pulled between work and home.
