Aries & Aries Rising
Friendships that get better with age and hand washing
April focuses on the roles that you inhabit in your networks, communities and friend groups. Pay attention to who you are able to support in these tough times and who is only around for the celebratory ones. Don’t be afraid of exchanging quality for quantity, doing so will help you make important strides in community building which is good for everyone in the end. The next couple of years see you’ll be seeking out friendships with those that are grounded, wise, role-model material. As you become less and less interested in spending time on friendships that are a flash in the pan, you will be able to make room for the ones that will only help you to get better with age.
Taurus & Taurus Rising
You have exactly what the world needs. Also, wash your hands.
When you refuse to let outside forces pressure you into figuring your career out, what do you find most want to do? When you aren’t trying to please or appease an authority figure, a cultural norm, or an idea of success, what makes you feel accomplished? If you were to consider that what you have to give is exactly what the world needs, what does it help you get clear on? Figure these answers out and the rest follow. As Saturn makes its first moves through Aquarius, it sends you many a memo on the commitments your career is calling for. The clearer you are on your intentions for it, the more directly you’ll be able to be of service to it.
Gemini & Gemini Rising
Study with masters and wash your hands
Give yourself time to make up your mind about future paths that you want to pursue. Give yourself space to find out what would be fulfilling given the current circumstances. Give the world a minute to sort itself out. If you find that you veer towards choosing a route out of fear, obligation, or peer-pressure, be forewarned – it won’t get you far. Choose a destination that is worth the blood, sweat, and tears it will demand when you can. Study under masters when you find them. Develop a disciplined approach to achieving your goals. Deepen your awareness of what truly motivates you. It’s the only thing that will carry you all the way from A to Z.
Cancer & Cancer Rising
Wash your hands and mind your business
Saturn’s journey through Aquarius wants to help you spend your energy wisely. You’ll benefit greatly by understanding what you add to any equation and what’s an unnecessary drain to your system. Knowing your worth means understanding your talents: where they flourish and where they flounder. Be generous where it’s your job to be, give what you can when you can, while withstanding the urge to fulfill other people’s roles for them. The more you mind your business, the more of a benefit you are to the entire team. Similarly, what your partners bring into the mix needs to be clearly identified so it can be put to use in the best way possible. One of the best ways to cultivate a culture of calm, efficient respect is when everyone knows what their role is and what isn’t.
Leo & Leo Rising
Scour the fine print of your contracts and stay home
As Saturn travels through Aquarius, it scours the fine print of your contracts with others. What you agreed to years ago, months ago, or even weeks ago gets reviewed. Right now, you need the kind of relationships that are ready to put in the work necessary to heal, grow, and mature together. The process of how you deal with any of the disconnects between you and others is the way that you’ll learn to reconnect with yourself. Be extremely patient in the process, everyone is bearing a burden they struggle with. Finding new ways to be together is important when needed, but being true to yourself and having as much integrity as you can in the process is imperative.
Virgo & Virgo Rising
Take pride in a job well done and wash your hands
Focus on the rituals that help you filter through the hard to handle emotions of the moment. You’ll feel better when you cleanse your calendar of any habitual practices that meddle with your best efforts. You’ll be well-served to focus on taking pride in a job well done rather than one well-praised. There is so much satisfaction for you to gain when you know that you have done your best – patiently, persistently, and religiously. It might not always feel like it, but eventually, the skills you are diligently honing now will become your crowning achievements. Be patient with yourself in this moment, it is a relentless reminder that so little is in our control but so much needs our care.
Libra & Libra Rising
Create what brings fulfillment and wash your hands
Bringing creative projects into form requires you to be disciplined, dedicated, and desirous of the entire process – not easy to do in a moment like this. It’s not only the effort of making something that is important, but also the effort of hearing what wants to be made by you in the first place. Listening requires deep devotion, patience, and kindness. Notice whose opinion are you attuned to; the world’s or your own? Your peers or your intuition? The industry or the inkling that you need to go in your own direction? Over the course of the next couple of years, you’re going to need to know which creative projects will win you medals, but more importantly, will win you a sense of fulfillment and self-respect.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising
As much as you can stay home and make peace with your past
Home is where so much of your growth will be happening over the next couple of months. From now until the beginning of July, you are learning how to build a nest, settle in, and see what can come from giving yourself the chance to get grounded. Given the fact that the world has been asked to do the same as of late, this news probably lands like a massive understatement. However, for you, this initial moment is tied to a much bigger transition. More than just spending extra time at home, the next couple of years are about you becoming more familiar with your origin stories, myths, legends, lies, and truths. This is a time to compassionately review your roots, learn about your history, and make peace with the parts of the past that you’ve not been ready to, until now.
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising
Be the boss of your calendar and wash your hands
Become as covetous of your time as you can, making sure that you spend it in ways that lead to the quality of your life and not just the anxiety of this moment. As Saturn travels through Aquarius, it asks you to spend your days wisely. Thoughtfully. Consider what you have the desire to do, what you have the energy to do, and what you have the talent to do. Lay it all out on your timeline and see what makes the cut. Your daily life and responsibilities definitely increase over the coming months, and what you say yes to now will be awaiting your best efforts come the end of the year. Take on the projects that are the most likely to bring you the most long-term satisfaction and make time for rest and recuperation.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising
Self-development is your greatest resource. WFH if you can
With deadlines, responsibilities, and commitments galore, these past couple of years have had you adulting like nobody’s business. This cosmic pressure cooker has enabled you to discover many hidden gems within, ones that you’ll adorn with pride for years to come. With Saturn’s recent change of sign, however, the focus now shifts towards how you are developing a more thoughtful relationship with your resources, talents, and assets. As you do, make sure to invest a good chunk back into yourself and your skill development. If these past couple of years have tried to teach you anything, it’s that your self-development is your greatest resource. Spend this time building the containers that can hold the eventual abundance overflow.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising
Be the boss you want to see in the world and wash your hands
When you try to be everything to everyone, you end up with too little left for yourself. With Saturn back in your sign, you are being asked to level-up your boundaries, take on challenging tasks that increase your self-respect, and be the boss you want to see in the world. This is no time to pass the buck or pretend that you don’t have the capacity that you do. This doesn’t mean that you need to rush towards the next available option to take charge. Quite the contrary. Be exceptionally thoughtful, clear, and considerate of what you put your effort behind. Once you choose, you’ll be required to give it your all – and you don’t want to be offering that much of yourself to just any old cause.
Pisces & Pisces Rising
Get serious about secret projects and washing your hands
Saturn’s entrance into Aquarius encourages you to get serious about your behind the scenes projects, self-care routines, and healing practices. This is a time where you’ll be asked to direct at least some of your focus towards what you can get done out of sight, and away from the criticisms of the world. Your newest creative projects need protection in order to grow into themselves. Too many opinions only interfere with your ability to serve these seedlings. This is a time that encourages you to listen to your intuition, follow your instincts, and attune yourself to the undercurrents of your life. What starts out as a tug on your sleeve now ends up being a full-blown course correction over the next couple of years.
