Aries, this is your time to shine! Besides celebrating your birthday, this Aries season will have you busy and demand a lot of energy. It is important to not overextend yourself during these times and to communicate with others on your needs, especially with significant others. While it can be easy to get caught up on celebrating your achievements and special moments this month, it is important to be selective on who you spend your time with. Carve out time for yourself by meditating, journaling, yoga, or anything relaxing.

Virgo, you will be challenged this month, especially in your relationships. You may be feeling some frustration in your relationships or maybe feeling isolated. Now is the time to express yourself and confide with others. While wearing your heart on your sleeve may feel intimidating at first, it is important to find the courage to confront your feelings. It is also important to set boundaries and welcome a clean slate for your interpersonal relationships.

Libra, you are known as peacemakers, and this month conflict may arise that you might need to mediate. Be mindful of how this interaction is viewed by others — it may not be good. It is important to stop being a people-pleaser and find a balance in your day-to-day life. You will find that once you find more balance, you will satisfy yourself and others that you find important. Romance will be in the air, whether you are seeking a new connection or bolster an old one.

Now is the time to tackle a lot of menial tasks you’ve been putting off, Scorpio. Whether it be errands, work or other to-do lists, you need to find a way to slow down and prioritize. You’ll find yourself especially prone to burn out due to this seemingly never-ending checklist. However, you will find a newfound sense of motivation approaching the end of April 11 that will spark more creativity. Remember, eventually you will run out of boxes to tick and you’ll get the deserving break you’ve been wanting.

Things may be getting boring for you this month, Sagittarius. Try to find activities that will spark your interest as you wind down the month, and break away from your typical routines. Let your creativity loose and seek inspiration, especially in activities you can invest time into. Pick up a new hobby like painting, baking, cooking or thrifting — anything that will plug that creative outlet you may be seeking.

Think about the trajectory of your life and jot down some goals you wish to accomplish in the near future. You will be tested to see if your vision is going in the right direction, but you have time to figure out your plans. If you have a dream, you’ll be able to accomplish it with the right mindset.

Pisces, you need to shift your focus on rebuilding your confidence. You aren’t at your best, leaving people to underestimate your real power. Don’t let people think you aren’t a force to be reckoned with. Try to stay grounded in reality and work on the things that will give you the confidence you need to be successful for the rest of the month. Make sure you pay special attention to your financial situation. Get the ball moving on looking for a job or search for a more concrete way to secure cash flow. This may help you address some insecurity.
