Welcome to April, Scorpio. This month brings a chaotic eclipse and Mercury retrograde, but also welcome changes to your love and sex life. Last month encouraged you to treat yourself, reminding you that the better you feel, the better you can show up in your relationships. Sometimes (you do have a stinger, Scorpio), you can push people you love away without realizing it as a defense mechanism. When Mercury, the messenger of the Gods, enters Taurus and your 7th House of Partnership on Monday, April 3, the stars call you out and urge you to put away your stinger. This is a time for expressing your feelings and letting your loved ones know how much you appreciate them.
Wednesday, April 5, brings a full moon in Libra. In astrology, full moons mark culminations. With all due respect, Scorpio, this lunation calls you out. Surround yourself with comfort, whether it’s a pet, a trusted partner, or your favorite snacks. You may realize during this full moon that some of your recent words or actions were unintentionally harsh but fear not. When Venus, the planet of romance, enters loquacious Gemini and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Transformation on Monday, April 10, you’re able to apologize for any over-use of your stinger and kiss and make up with any lovers or friends you stung with your words.
If full moons mark culminations, new moons represent fresh starts. Wednesday, April 19, brings a new moon and solar eclipse in Aries. This is a powerful and cleansing cosmic occurrence for you. You made amends for any unintentional harsh treatment to those around you, and you’re ready to enter a loving and kind phase fueled by self-awareness. Just keep in mind that eclipses are potent and intense times. While this transit leads to positive change within your relationships, while it’s happening, you may feel on edge or anxious. So skip any invitations for drinks, and spend the eclipse cuddling on your couch with your pet and favorite snacks.
While Scorpios need alone time to recharge, once the sun enters the grounded earth sign Taurus on Thursday, April 20, the work you did pays off. The next few weeks are absolutely epic for your love and social life, and see you going on romantic dates and adventures with friends. And these good times are even better with your newfound self-awareness of the power of your words. But speaking of words, just make sure to proofread emails and sext the right person, as on Friday, April 21, Mercury goes retrograde. Don’t stress. Just make the proper preparations, allow for plenty of travel time, and remember to keep your stinger down and your head high. See you in May, Scorpio.
