The fire of Aries season is raging this month and it’s got you sizzling with desire. Let go of your inhibitions and harness the power that’s burning inside you, because this cardinal fire sign does not hold back. Let go of the worry that you’re moving too fast, because Aries thrives when it feels unstoppable. Embrace your April 2022 monthly horoscope, because it wants you to take advantage of everything this cardinal fire sign has to offer.

As a new moon in Aries replenishes the sky on April 1, this month is clearly off to a dynamic start. This new moon is about going for the goal and overcoming your fear of failure. Instead of overthinking every little thing, let the power of your will drive you toward success. However, as the sun joins forces with Chiron — the wounded healer — you might feel *extra* sensitive to criticism. Remember — even the greatest legends in history made mistakes along the way. And what makes a legend so legendary is the fact that they never gave up.

You might run into a few speed bumps and dead ends by April 4. This is when Mars — planet of drive — will slam into the rigid confinement of Saturn — planet of restriction — which could slow down your movement until it might feel like you’re not moving at all. While you may be stopping before you’re even starting, this alignment between the two malefic planets of astrology could lead to something incredible down the line. Let the promise of delayed gratification guide you when the going gets tough.

Luckily, all that struggle will feel worth it by April 12. As Jupiter — planet of adventure and expansion — joins forces with Neptune — planet of imagination and empathy — in spiritual and open-hearted Pisces, it could evoke a major artistic breakthrough. An era of creation and compassion is just beginning, so don’t just dip your toes into a fantasy world; jump right into the deep end, because the water’s just fine. As a full moon in balanced, beautiful, and partnership-oriented Libra dances through the sky on April 16, it will even bring clarity and healing to your relationships. Embrace the romance and the love you know you deserve.

The sun enters grounded and gorgeous Taurus on April 19, reminding you that every ship needs to release its anchor eventually. Feel the earth beneath your feet, connect with your surroundings, and embrace the stability you need in order to grows strong and thrive. However, this year, Taurus season may feel anything *but* predictable. As a solar eclipse in Taurus cracks through the cosmos on April 30, it could drive you toward something that seems just as unexpected as it does life-altering. Eclipse season is returning once again, bringing you to the brink of change and pushing you toward your ultimate destiny. Embrace what the universe has in store for you.
