This April feels particularly optimistic. The COVID-19 vaccine is becoming more widely available here in Maryland, and with the light rain blessing growing flowers, we can’t help but feel a bit more jovial. Astrologically, we’ve got another good month for progress, as most of the planets are direct this month. However, because no month can be utter perfection, a Pluto retrograde arrives on April 27. Pluto is the planet of death/rebirth, reproduction, transformation, viruses, and waste. The short translation of Pluto: deep dark stuff. Generally, we should tread lightly near the end of the month while Pluto makes us (re)view the aforementioned topics. Do a little introspection and take stock of your internal subconscious mind. This will be the time to face those fears that most of us like to keep hidden.
Without further ado (our sign for this month LOVES a grand entrance) it’s time to roll out the red carpet for Aries, the sign that governs late March to late April. Of course, that carpet is red, considering this sign is ruled by feisty Mars—beware, because hot-blooded Aries might burst into a fight about anything they’re passionate about. And if you’re friends with a jocular (but also stubborn) Ram, you know their list of passions is long. They also enjoy athletic hobbies, especially since they love to keep fit! On the negative side, this fire sign can be exhausting. But remember they are the initiators of the Zodiac since they kick off the astrological year. Want to start up an ambitious business? Thinking of digging up that rocky front lawn to plant a fruitful garden? Call up an Aries! No challenge is too big for them.
