April 2024 Horoscopes: Mercury Retrograde & Eclipse Season Magic

Welcome to April 2024. This month brings a cosmos filled with invitations for movement and change, healing and insight, reflection and becoming.

April is filled with shifts and transformation, we held within the divinity of Eclipse Season, after all.

It sets the stage and creates the space for deep development of who we are at a core level, where the changes that invite us into their arms this month act as seeds that will continue to bloom and unfold for the remainder of the year.

If we so allow, we will emerge from April changed. Different. Yet somehow… more of ourselves. 

This month invites spaciousness and reflection for re-meet ourselves through the untangling and release of who we are no longer. It is a mirror, bringing a focus into the self, who we have been, who we are becoming, and how we feel at home, or not, within our own selves.

With Chiron sitting at the core of April, it holds the space for deep inner healing, the kind of foundational healing of who we are that this healing cannot help but reverberate throughout our entire lives. It is a month where we are building the safety within, so that we may be a clear and direct channel for our own self, needs, wants, individuality, and path.

April 2024 Monthly Horoscope Overview

And, it brings some of the major astrological events of the year – all within a few weeks of one another.

Continuing with fiery Aries Season, April begins with our first Mercury Retrograde of 2024 also in the fires of Aries. Soon after, we meet the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries on April 8, a Mercury Cazimi, and the coming together of Mars and Saturn in our skies.

As the Sun moves and Taurus Season begins and we are welcomed deeper into our bodies, later in the month Jupiter and Uranus also come into a partnership in our skies, activating a fresh, innovative, abundant and growth-filled portal for each of us.

With a Full Moon in Scorpio bringing closure, Mercury Retrograde also comes to an end on April 25, where its deep dive into the underworld of reflection can now offer up its wisdom, insight, and perspective shifts for us to begin integrating, updating and refreshing who we are.

There is an undeniable force of creation etched into the very fabric of this month. April is the divinity within transformation and the light that pours through the cracks of change. Siting at the core of this month is a strength, a presence, a purposefulness, an alignment, a change. A change that seems to only bring us closer to who we are, and closer to life itself.

April brings an undeniable swirl of creativity in the air. Vast cosmic movement. Transformation. Purpose. And deep inner soul alignment.

Important Astrological Events in April 2024

Aries Season: March 19 – April 29

Aries is the first zodiac. Its season represents the Astrological New Year and holds the essence of birth, beginning, heat and passion. It is inspiration, fierce courage, and a glorious glow of new beginnings.

Aries is the inner flame that burns within us all, giving us direction, connecting us to desire, drive, and movement. Aries is seeing to it that we do not stand still rather that we continue birthing ourselves again and again and again. It is demanding that we stand as ourselves for ourselves and that we take the risk, face the fears, and muster the courage to live this life with as much depth, passion, creativity, presence, adventure, and presence as possible.

Eclipse Season

Just like life, astrology seems to ebb and flow in waves of intensity and calm. As we continue to move through our first Eclipse Season of the year, we are invited into the high tides of inner and outer transformation.

As we look back on our life’s journey, there are often moments in time where our direction took a clear shift.

Perhaps something ended or a new journey began. We meet the beginning and end of chapters in our lives so much so that we could say we have lived multiple lifetimes in the one whether these changes were initiated through blissful moments of joy, or our deepest cracking open.

Eclipses are often at the heart of these changes. Where what is for us is as clear as what is not for us. April begins mid-Eclipse Season following the Libra Full Moon Lunar Eclipse March 25.

Mercury Retrograde in Aries: April 1 – 25

Mercury will be retrograde in Aries from April 1 – April 25. A time of reflection and realignment, ancient Astrologers believed that when in retrograde, the planet was moving through the underworld on a quest for new perspectives, for greater wisdom, and deeper insight.

What more is beckoning to be seen, known, made aware of within our consciousness? 

What perspectives are we unable to meet with usual path forward, requiring instead we turn back, review, reflect, witness from a new vantage?

Retracing its steps through the sign of Aries, while Mercury, our planet of communication, is retrograde it invites us to reflect on the experiences, beliefs, narratives, and perspectives that have gone into the building of our identity, our sense of self, our spark and life force, our relationship with courage, and with owning our desires.

It’s a retrograde that desires for us the kind of healing and re-writing that when we allow, reverberates into every corner and experience of our lives. For Aries teaches us that we must start with ourselves. To meet healing and fulfilment in our relationships, our career, our creativity, our health, and every other area of our lives – we must first start with the self. And if there is any zodiac reminding us that we are worth standing fully in ourselves as ourselves, it’s Aries.

Mercury goes direct April 25, 2024. Read more about Mercury Retrogrades for 2024 here.

Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Taurus: April 20

The exact Jupiter Uranus conjunction on April 20 is a highly anticipated cosmic event of the year, with it’s energy active from 3 April – 7 May.

Jupiter in Astrology is our planet of growth. It magnifies whatever it touches. It expands whatever touches it. It brings potential, opportunity, optimism, hope and meaning to the spaces it travels in our skies.

Uranus is our planet of change. It is the lightning bolt cracking open what is expired so that what is new can be planted. It is liberation and innovation, inspiration, and freedom.

It is also a planet concerned with social awareness, the evolution of humanity, and awakening consciousness, and often plays out in surprising, yet wildly impactful, ways.

As Jupiter and Uranus come together, it is a meeting in our cosmos is a spark of fresh, innovative, abundant new energies.

It is an invitation to explore new frontiers, both collectively and within our own lives. It is a moment in time for us to completely crack open the narrative of what we feel is possible for ourselves and reach into new opportunities for our lives.

Collectively, it invites a new wave of liberation and freedom, societal change, and evolution.

There can also be a deeply spiritual energy to this transit, where we are held by and within the hands of something greater. Hands that are opening doors to support us uniquely on our journeys.

While Jupiter invites a beautiful stream of faith and trust in life, Uranus gifts us with what could only be likened to foresight. It opens sight, pulls in future potentials and ideas that were floating around in the ethers waiting for us, and it allows us to see the positioning and purpose in where we are right now, the steps we are guided to take in this moment, and how each is leading us deeper into fulfilment and purpose.

Scorpio Full Moon: April 23

It’s a full Moon that asks that we stand with all of who we are, and with all that rests within us – the parts of us we shine brightly and the parts of us that we are still learning to love. The parts of us we own within our identity and sense of self, and the parts of us that live beneath the surface, cast from the light either consciously or unconsciously.

To shine a light into the shadow, onto our fears, and into the basement of our underworld, offers us the opportunity to love the corners of ourselves that perhaps, have never received love. It offers the opportunity to begin reaching into acceptance, piece by piece reclaiming ourselves. And it offers the opportunity to become, with greater wholeness and depth, the truth of who we are.
