April Is About Embracing The Uncertainty, Because 3 Planets Will Be Retrograde
The first three months of the year have flown by right before our eyes, and I'm sure you're wondering, what else could the universe have in store for us? Where will the winds of time guide us towards next? Not to worry, stargazers; I've got your April 2019 horoscope, and there's so much to tell you. For starters, Aries season is always incredibly inspiring, given its supercharged energy flow, and power of initiation. To top it off, Mercury and Venus will join in on the fun, as both of these celestial bodies will be traveling through the sign of Aries by the end of this month.
That's a whole lot of cardinal fire, which reminds me, there will be a powerful new moon in Aries on Apr. 5, reminding us of our individual courage while pushing us to take initiative in our lives. As many of you know, the new moon phase is great for starting something new, and for making a fresh start in general. However, this lunation will be making a square to structured Saturn, which means we could come face-to-face with trials and tribulations, but then again, we're in luck, as there is nothing this fire sign loves more than a challenge. Right, Aries?
Moreover, (and this may or may not come as a bit of a shock) three planets will retrograde this month, which means there's more work for us to do: Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn. Now, while we typically tend to "fear" the personal planets (Mercury, Mars, Venus) stationing retrograde more than the outer planets, this doesn't mean we won't see the effects firsthand. On the contrary, the only difference is, these planets move a lot slower than the personal planets, so you might not be conscious of the changes you're experiencing in the beginning.
Also, Jupiter retrograde isn't your typical retrograde cycle, given the fact that Jupiter is the planet of luck, abundance, and expansion. This means that when the great benevolent planet slows down, we are simply gifted with more of its goodness, and perhaps a more elongated process of discovery. Anyway, here's what the cosmos have in store for you this month, according to your zodiac sign:
Aries: You're Fighting For Your Independence
You're thriving this month, and you can already feel it, too! With the sun beaming over your red-hot sign, you are being gifted with enough energy to get things done, and even better, the courageous drive to take the necessary risks. Luckily, the new moon in your sign will certainly lead the way before lucky Jupiter kicks off its four-month-long retrograde through your expansive ninth house of education, travel, and personal philosophy. What have you been working on these days, Aries? All I'm going to say is, there are plenty of opportunities headed your way, so make sure you keep an open mind. Plus, once Mercury joins the sun in your sign, you will likely be in the midst of making some important decisions. Speaking of, the full moon in Libra might bring you some much-needed clarity, or perhaps closure, in regard to your partnerships. Who knows, some of you might make things official with your SO.
Taurus: You're Secretly At War With Yourself
You might be feeling out of your element these days, but this won't last long. Although, with the new moon shaking up your secretive 12th house of closure, karma, and behind-the-scenes work, you could also be going through a period of spiritual renewal, and for some, emotional healing. No need to overthink things, just let it go. On another note, with Jupiter kicking off its retrograde cycle through your eighth house of sex and shared resources, you are likely already in the midst of deep transformation in regard to your debt, intimate unions, and shared finances. However, not to worry, as Jupiter retrograde simply elongates the process of luck and abundance. Moreover, the full moon in Libra lights up your mindful sixth house of responsibility, bringing attention to what needs to change in terms of your health habits, and daily routine. Although, for some of you, this lunation will serve as a charming reminder of all the hard work you've been doing.
Gemini: You're Being Assertive In Your Social Circles
What are friends for, Gemini? With the sun traveling through your 11th house of groups, teams, and tribes, you're likely more focused on your friendship crew, and extended community. You know what they say, it's not what you know, it's who you know, and well... if I were you, I would get out there and do what you do best: mingle. Moreover, the new moon in Aires will bring new beginnings to your sense of belonging, and perhaps connect you with the right candidates. BTW, this area of your chart also rules technology, so some of you might decide to launch something via social media. Speaking of connections, Jupiter kicks off its four-month-long retrograde this month, and in your seventh house of relationships, and committed partnerships. Not to worry, Gemini. Jupiter retrograde is nothing like Mercury retrograde, as Jupiter typically brings abundance and expansion to our lives. Who knows, some of you might decide to tie the knot!

Virgo: You're Boldly Surrendering To The Unknown
Dare to go where no one's gone before, Virgo? With the sun beaming over your suspicious eighth house of sex, transformation, and shared resources, you're likely more invested in the intangible. For instance, financial debt, emotional transformation, mysticism, taboo-related topics, and the occult, perhaps?
