Bigger, better, bolder. The active, energetic and impulsive Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, symbolizing new beginnings and bringing with it a boost of energy (which I'm sure we all needed). April 2019 comes with a chance for most of us to reflect deeply on who we are, what and who makes us happy and what our purpose is within the world. Mercury enters into Aries while Mars enters into Gemini (otherwise known as a mutual reception, where two signs trade places from their home planets) meaning communication may feel more energized and possibly aggressive, and the pace of your day-to-day may go from 0 to 100 real quick. A full moon in Libra toward the end of the month provides balance and asks us to consider the relationships around us and helps us get what we want through charm and grace. This month, be wary of misrepresented information and be patient when it comes to listening to others.
