Your April 2024 horoscopes have landed: Find out what’s in store for the month ahead

This is one of the biggest astrological months of the year, and time may likely feel like it’s moving at quantum speed. Not only are we in eclipse season – which is always a marker of when the Gods and Goddesses at hand are pulling the puppet strings of our destinies – the first Mercury Retrograde of 2024 also begins in the sign Aries on the April 2. So, needless to say, your April 2024 horoscopes are going to be a big one.

We also have one of the most anticipated transits of the year. Jupiter and Uranus meet in Taurus on the 21st, and the last time these planets came together was in 2010. Picture Jupiter as a cosmic storyteller, weaving narratives about our world and its poetic evolution, while Uranus serves as the catalyst for challenging norms and revolutionising broken structures.

As these planetary giants unite in the sign of Taurus, the world could expect some volatile global shifts, particularly in financial markets and our approach to the climate crisis. It's no coincidence that this conjunction aligns with the start of Taurus season on the 20th, coinciding with World Earth Day. How to navigate this cosmic terrain? Control what’s in your hands, and let the fates do the rest. When in doubt, say the serenity prayer in the morning just to be safe!
