Have you been a bit of a workaholic lately? April will be the month that if you don’t take a break, you’ll most likely be forced to. Where no one would see this as a bad thing, this can be a hard-working Scorpio’s worst nightmare. Mercury enters your 6th house on the 4th of the month, calling attention to how you’ve been spending your time. Have you had any free time lately, or have you just been filling your schedule with as many things as possible, so you don’t have to take care of yourself? It’s time to clean the house and get yourself together. You may tend to put your focus outwards, and you forget to take care of your own home—literally or figuratively.
Mars will be trine with Jupiter in your 8th and 4th house, bringing awareness to your home life. It’s time to tend to the tedious aspects of life and get organized. They say your room is a reflection of your mind, so take this time to get rid of all the trash in the background. This could be referring to physical debris, but also all the purposeless white noise. Have you been watching too much TV and playing video games all day? All that noise doesn’t allow for your brain to recharge properly. Maybe go out for some fresh air, or meditate at a park. Chances are you’re feeling restless and just need a distraction. You’ll notice how much better you’ll feel when things are all in the right place. After all that, pat yourself in the back and take a break, though; you did it.
The New Moon in Aries of the 11th will be happening in your 6th house. She will come in handy in solidifying this new sense of mental cleanliness you’ll find—if you take steps to do so. This is a good time for a new you to emerge out of your cocoon. The mood for this new lunar cycle might be a little more laid back, and that’s just what you need. Forget about work—responsibly— and put yourself out there. Mercury will also be in close conjunction with the Moon that day, so you might find yourself caught in a debate with somebody. Be careful not to be too forward in the way you approach people.
At the change from Aries to Taurus season, the sun enters your 7th house. You might find that the Taurus season shifts the focus outwards as you’re pushed towards social interaction. For those of you who prefer the hermit indoors life, this could be a time you get a little irritable. Be careful to get in your own way and enjoy the company. You don’t have to be the center of attention to be social. People appreciate your company and are satisfied with just your presence. Be thankful, and have a good time.
On the 19th, your ruler planet Mars will be trine with Jupiter, sparking a competitive spirit within you. Someone from your past might show up again, and you may find yourself trying to impress them. You’ll likely catch their attention, but ask yourself why. Make sure you’re not boasting and making things up to make yourself look good. You don’t need any of that. You’re already awesome by default, and you know it. This could likely be stemming from a fear that they may disagree with you, though. If that’s the case, then so what? Since when did other people’s opinions matter to a Scorpio like you anyway?
The Full Moon of the 26th happens in your sign this month. Whereas many people tend to have issues with Scorpio Full Moons, this is an energy you’re already very familiar with. This will likely be an emotional time for many people, but your intuitive awareness of people’s emotions is a great tool to help mediate all the drama that could surface. This could be an excellent time to check on your siblings or your immediate family. Maybe they miss you and just need to hear your voice. Get in touch, and you will likely not regret it.
The month comes to a close with Saturn sextile the South Node in your 4th and 2nd house. This transit brings even more attention to your family, especially concerning your responsibilities. For those of you who have children, this may be when they need a little extra attention. If that’s not your scenario, perhaps it is your parents that need more of that. Regardless of who it is, let them know how much you appreciate them. Scorpios are notoriously reserved, and though you’re good at understanding other people’s emotions, you’re not so good at showing them yourself. Open up a little and brighten one of your loved one’s days. You might surprise yourself with the difference a little effort makes.
