Your April Horoscope: It's a Season of Retrogrades. How Will Your Sign Handle It?

With Mercury still retrograde until the 15th, the month may feel confusing as it begins. In fact, the month can be divided into two sections, with intense planetary activity occuring in the middle. On April 14, Jupiter and Pluto form a powerful sextile, that can truly shape a legal, business, or personal relationship. On the 15th, Mercury turns direct, and an Aries new moon turns over a new leaf for all signs. On April 17, Chiron enters Aries after seven years in Pisces; a shift that can help us build confidence. Also on the 17th, Saturn turns retrograde, bringing responsibilities and to-do lists to light. Pluto turns retrograde on the 22nd, and all signs may feel some power dynamics shifting. Finally, a Scorpio full moon on April 29th is passionate, intense, and helps all signs consider their place in the world and universe. Here, April horoscopes for all signs.
