Welcome to April, Gemini. Last month, you focused on finding a work/life balance while honoring your ambition. It's a task that many folks are struggling with right now, but as someone who tends to try to do it all, it's not only especially challenging for you but incredibly important. March also called for a period of self-care due to the Libra eclipse. Before you get ready to shift back into busy bee mode, know that April brings another eclipse, along with Mercury retrograde. But April also brings leaps within relationships and enhanced psychic abilities.

On Monday, April 1, yes, on April Fool's Day, your ruling planet kicks off the month by turning retrograde in passionate Aries. Beware that this transit warns of potential miscommunications among friends. Should tensions arise remember that, during the messenger of the Gods' backward dance, it's better to press pause and step back from a potential conflict rather than engage. And given Mercury's influence over technology—and as your ruling planet—you're also prone to digital faux pas during this period. Messages could be misinterpreted, and the time is ripe for accidental likes. A social media hiatus might be the respite you need, offering a chance to reconnect with your thoughts away from the stress of the screen.

Then, on Thursday, April 4, caring Venus enters into Aries and turns your attention to your social life. While your social circle is broad, this transit invites you to ponder the depth of these connections. Distinguishing between mere acquaintances and true allies can help ensure that your energy is invested in relationships that truly matter. With Mercury retrograde smack in the middle of eclipse season, beware that you might feel a bit burnt out around this time. While it's in your nature to want to say yes to everyone and all events, boundaries are your ally during April. It's not only okay but advisable to be choosy about who you spend time with.

While last month's eclipse was lunar, April brings a solar eclipse, which is a little bit different. Lunar eclipses are associated with endings, while solar eclipses, corresponding with the new moon phase, equal fresh starts but can also be energy-draining. The Monday, April 8, new moon and solar eclipse in Aries might secure the beginning of a significant new professional alliance or transform an existing one. Stay open to the unexpected; the universe may surprise you with a connection that brings potential for profound growth. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the trick to taking advantage of this powerful time is balancing enthusiasm with rest and self-care, as you may feel on edge, even as opportunities arise.

On Friday, April 19, the sun enters Taurus. This transit deepens your connection to the unseen, amplifying intuition and psychic sensitivity. Dreams may bring important messages, so it's a good idea to keep a journal by your bed where you can jot down notes when you wake up. It's also an excellent time to work with tarot cards as a way to connect with your spiritual side. Taurus weekend is all about connecting with your inner witch, Gemini.

Use your magical sway to utilize one of your coveted skills (networking) when Juno, the asteroid of commitment, ends its retrograde on Sunday, April 21. Relationships gain momentum around this time in your personal life, but you're more likely to feel the effects professionally. Be careful not to work too hard, or you could risk burnout. The Tuesday, April 23, full moon in Scorpio will probably leave you feeling drained. It's a reminder to honor your physical and mental well-being, especially if you've been neglecting self-care. Self-care isn't a luxury; it's a necessity, Gemini.

The last few days of April are ripe for deepening existing relationships that could propel you ahead in your work or creative projects.

Thankfully, Mercury goes direct on Thursday, April 25, at which point your stress levels should lower. This happens just in time for giving Venus to move into Taurus on Monday, April 29, which is a transit that draws in karmic connections. While networking opportunities already arose this month, the last few days of April are especially ripe for deepening existing relationships that could propel you ahead in your work or creative passion projects. And while we're always careful about making monetary predictions while working within the confines of our economy, Venus does rule wealth, so make a note that the end of the month is excellent for pitching ideas, asking for a raise, or applying for jobs. Your works will have extra power as the fighter planet Mars moves into its home sign of Aries on Tuesday, April 30, giving you an extra boost of star power in any professional negotiations. Shoot your shot, charismatic Gemini, and we'll see you in May.
