Your April horoscope: how to get a fresh start this spring
Spring is the season of fresh starts and growth – it’s one of the best times of year! To guide you through this new season, we brought on Wholesome Culture’s resident astrologer to take a look at April 5th’s new Moon.
In astrology, new Moons are major indicators of change. What kind of new beginning is in the stars for you this month?
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
This new Moon is basically your own personal New Year – who do you want to be a year from now? Set some goals – like switching to a plant-based diet or becoming more eco-friendly – and get to work! There’s no time like the present to focus on self-improvement – just remember that real change takes time and patience.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
You’re probably feeling a little more sensitive and compassionate than usual; you’re doing some major soul-searching right now. Channel this energy into helping those in need, especially animals. And while you’re at it, take some time for self-care too. Next month will be a big one for you, so rest up now and reflect on all that you’ve learned in the past year.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
As the zodiac’s communication expert, making friends comes easily to you – and this month is no exception. Make sure to get out and socialize on April 5; you could make a new lifelong pal if you’re willing to put in the effort. Why not invite this new friend to get involved in one of your humanitarian or environmental causes? The more, the merrier.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Look at you go, climbing that career ladder! Early this month, you’ll get an opportunity to make some major career moves – maybe you’ll get a promotion or come up with an idea for a new business. It’s time to come up with a game plan so you can build on this momentum! And make sure you’re giving your body the plant-based fuel it needs to get through this busy month.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
On April 5, be prepared to get bitten by the travel bug. If you’re in the mood for an adventure, why not check out one (or more!) of these planet-friendly destinations? Saturn adds a serious element to your travels – have lots of fun, but do some good for the planet, too.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
The April 5 new Moon takes place in your eighth house, which rules everything mysterious and unseen. Issues you’ve been unwilling to face could be brought to light during this time. This presents a great opportunity for personal growth – but in order to transform these difficult issues into something positive, you must acknowledge them first.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
This month, consider joining forces with someone who brings out the best in you. This could lead to a new relationship, or it could indicate a business or artistic partnership. If you want to start up your own plant-based business, bringing a partner on board could be a real game-changer! Whether this partnership is a romantic one or all business, know that there might be a few bumps in the road. If you’re willing to learn from them, this relationship might just stand the test of time.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
This month, get ready to take on extra responsibilities. Maybe you’ll do more volunteering, maybe your role at work will evolve, or maybe you’ll get extra serious about your health goals. No matter what, you’re putting in the hard work now so your future self can reap the benefits – eyes on the prize, Scorpio!
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Get ready for an amazing April, Sagittarius – “fun” is an understatement! You’re feeling especially inspired; creativity is at an all-time high. Why not get to work on a new art project or sign up for guitar lessons? Romance is also in the air this month – if you’re going out on a date, make sure to check out our plant-based dining guide beforehand!
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Spring cleaning might not sound thrilling, but it’s exactly what your heart and soul needs! April is a great month for you to upgrade your living situation. Find a new apartment, finally organize that messy closet, or upgrade to an eco-friendly kitchen – whatever makes your house feel like home! Let your home serve as the solid foundation from which the rest of your life can grow and expand.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You’re an innovator, Aquarius, and you have the power to create change this month. Communication and connections will be the key to your success – spread the word about issues that matter, like the inhumane dairy industry or the need to reduce plastic waste. You’ve got a way with words; put them to good use!
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
This is a great month to focus on your finances; a big money-making opportunity could present itself on April 5! Money isn’t everything, but it helps – especially when it comes to supporting animal charities and human rights issues. Enjoy the added sense of financial security – you’ve earned it!
