April 1 may be April Fool’s Day, but you may feel like the universe is playing a trick on you well into the rest of the month. You can thank two retrogrades, one of which is in your sign, for turning your world upside down for the foreseeable future. First, on the 2nd, Venus retrograde moves back into your mystical twelfth house. It’s a great time to book a session with a reiki healer or pick out a new crystal for your collection. (Seriously, have you seen what people are doing with crystals these days?) The twelfth house is also about rest, so a spa day couldn’t hurt. Mercury retrograde starts on the 9th in beauty-obsessed Taurus, so the stars concur: It’s time to treat yourself.
By the time Venus gets back into your sign on the 28th, you’re ready to slay, but you might have to keep your plans for world domination secret for a little while. Mercury retrograde moves into your sign on the 20th, so go slow at first. When your patron planet, Mars, enters clever Gemini on the 21st, brainstorm and strategize your way to success. Get ready to make your ideas a reality next month, Aries!
