This month, there is a lot of movement in the stars. Yes, Pisces season was smooth sailing. But since the sun moved into Aries and started a new astrological year, the pace has picked up. Your April 2022 horoscopes bring some enlightening, exciting and welcomed changes. 

First up is a major conjunction between Jupiter and Neptune. These two cross paths every 13 years, but this is one for the books as they’re both at home in Pisces! This makes for an extremely powerful alignment since both planets are operating at full capacity. The last time they got together in this sign was 1856. This alignment brings us a “once-in-a-lifetime” chance or opportunity that should not be wasted! We can truly open the doors to our wildest dreams with this magical and mystical influence.

Pluto stations retrograde in Capricorn on April 29 and gives us a chance to really review the trajectory of our lives over the next several months. It’s time to step out of our comfort zones and level up—but this requires some deep reflection on our part. On the following day, we’ll experience a radical shift in value with a solar eclipse in Taurus. We can make tangible use of the new beginning that this new moon presents us with.  

April 2022 Horoscopes Important Dates:

New Moon in Aries, April 1: A chance to heal ourselves from the inside out as the sun and moon are in close proximity to Chiron, the wounded healer. Mercury will also be in conjunction with the sun and moon, so we can use this fresh start to work smarter, not harder. While this is a new beginning, it is also a chance to really purge what is no longer working.
