April 2020 horoscopes based on your Zodiac star sign accompanied by a monthly mantra by The Mantra Co.
ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19) – “I TRUST MY MIND, INTUITION, & HEART TO MAKE THE BEST CHOICES FOR ME EVERY TIME.”
This month is all about being confident in the choices you’ve made thus far to get you to where you’re at today as well as the choices you will make moving forward. Decide that you are the only person in charge of your life. Unfair things will happen to you, unfortunate times will come to you, but you will always get to choose how to react. You can live in frustration and bitterness, but you’ve already invested so much time and effort into getting your shit together for 2020 and you’re not going to stop now. Continue to do what you feel is right in your heart. Stop being afraid of what might go wrong and start thinking of what could go right.
TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20) – “THE ONLY THING PERMANENT IN THIS LIFE IS THAT EVERYTHING IS TEMPORARY.”
Right now you might be in a situation where you think you won’t survive, but remind yourself of what you’ve been able to overcome. All those moments you felt like you weren’t going to make it through and surprised yourself when you pushed through – you did that. The only thing permanent in life is that everything is temporary. Be grateful for what you have. If you want more, work for it. If you don’t like something, change it. Seek comfort wherever you can, whether that be from loved ones or within the safety of your own home. Stop projecting a future of fear and project a future of peace.
GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20) – “I ALWAYS FIND TIME FOR THE THINGS THAT MAKE ME FEEL HAPPY TO BE ALIVE.”
We can’t always control the events that happen in our life, but we can adjust our perspective and change the way we respond to it. Setbacks are part of the journey. They’re not signs to stop. Sometimes you need to fall in order for a new and better you to emerge. This is your time to make sure your comeback is stronger than your setback, Gemini. Do more things this month that make you forget to check your phone. Don’t get stuck into a monotonous routine. Occupy your time doing something different every day. Learn something new. Try something new. Challenge yourself. The pursuit of knowledge is never ending and neither is your self-development journey. Why stop now?
CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22) – “EVERY DAY MAY NOT BE GOOD, BUT THERE IS SOMETHING GOOD IN EVERY DAY.”
Instead of overthinking this month and worrying about how things will work out for you, align your thoughts with divine timing and trust that everything meant for you is making its way towards you right now. Change can be beautiful and scary at the same time. During the moments when life seems to be moving a million miles a minute, pause. Take it all in where you are right now. Remind yourself that everybody is most likely going through the same difficulties that you are and there are better things ahead. Some situations just won’t work out, no matter how much you hoped they would, but accepting it for what it is should give you peace.
LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22) – “I DECIDE WHAT KIND OF LIFE I REALLY WANT & SAY NO TO EVERYTHING THAT ISN’T THAT.”
Sometimes you have to let go of the life you thought you wanted in order to make room for the life you are truly meant for. Take time this month to truly reflect on the life you want to live, without seeking approval and validation from other people. What is it that YOU truly want? What actually makes YOU happy? This journey is not meant to have you question who you are, but instead help you align to who you’ve always been minus the pressures and expectations of the outside world. Take these realizations and turn them into action plans to create your new ‘normal’ when this pandemic is all over.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22) – “I DESERVE REST & QUIET WHEN I NEED IT AND I CREATE SPACE IN MY LIFE WHERE MY NEEDS CAN BE MET.”
Sometimes we get so caught up in life that we forget we don’t always have to be doing something. Our lives have been nothing but speed, distractions, and constant movement. The challenge this month is to learn to depend on yourself for happiness and not material things or people on the outside. Practice stillness. Indulge in solitude. Find peace in silence. Live for the little things in life. Live for morning sunrises and late-afternoon sunsets where you’ll see colors in the sky that don’t usually belong. Self-discovery isn’t comfortable, but it’s a miraculous thing. It can be confusing, but you’ll be surprised how much you’ll discover about yourself during this time.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22) – “I ACCEPT WHAT IS, LET GO OF WHAT WAS, AND HAVE FAITH IN WHAT WILL BE.”
Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Appreciate where you are in your journey, even if it’s not where you want to be. Pause for a moment and take in all that this year has taught you. Reflect on your life with a grateful heart and work on finding a healthy balance in your new ‘normal.’ Create a new routine, adapt to your new environment, and always work with it, not against it. Remember every season serves a purpose and you do not have to have everything figured out right this second. So be patient with yourself, gracious with yourself, and smile at the unknown because it’s time to write a new story.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21) – “THE BEST TIME FOR NEW BEGINNINGS IS NOW.”
You are being presented with two choices: evolve or repeat. The biggest loss in the end is if we come out on the other side of this unchanged. Look at this as a new beginning. A chance to shift and level up. Don’t go backwards to habits and situations that weren’t helping you evolve. You have to keep reminding yourself why you even decided to move forward. You’ll have days where you feel like you’re going crazy by yourself, but you’ll also have days where you feel like you’ve found peace. Love yourself through the messy middle. No matter what situations arise and how lost we become, show up for yourself everyday with an open mind and give yourself the opportunity to be the best version you can possibly be.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21) – “MY MIND BENEFITS FROM STILLNESS AS IT ALLOWS ME TO DISCONNECT FROM THE WORLD AND CONNECT TO THE TRUTH IN MY SOUL.”
The space between you and your loved ones may be hard right now, but this break from people will either make you realize how much you truly miss and love them or how much peace you have without them. There is beauty in the moments between change and stillness. The moments of solitude this month will allow you to self-reflect on your relationship with yourself and others. Gather strength and confront yourself to figure out what your own personal version of happiness looks like. You’re living on your own terms right now, Sagittarius, and you have the time to restructure your life. As you continue to practice social distancing this month, reminisce on the great times you’ve had and look forward to the changes you will make.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19) – “I AM COMMITTED TO TAKING ACTION DESPITE FEAR, KNOWING THAT BLESSINGS, OPPORTUNITIES, PROSPERITY, & GOODNESS ARE MAKING ITS WAY TO ME RIGHT NOW.”
It feels like life’s slowly going by day by day and that even when you try your hardest… nothing changes. But the one thing you need to focus on this month is moving forward. Fear can drive you away from reaching your highest potential, but you have the willpower to take that fear and channel it towards taking action towards your goals. Pivot, don’t pause, Capricorn. The smallest step in the right direction can turn out to be the biggest step of your life.You’ll have days where you feel empowered and days where you’re discouraged. Both are okay. You just need to have trust in yourself and know that better things are coming.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18) – “I AM UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT WHO I AM AND THE VALUE THAT I ADD TO THIS WORLD.”
In times like these, we’re all seeking for social connection and connection conquers loneliness in ways otherwise impossible. People are naturally drawn to you because your energy is so contagious and it would be a shame to not share it with the world, especially right now. Your soul attracts people because of your ability to embrace your flaws, your awkwardness, your weirdness, your intensity, your vulnerability, your everything. This month, dare to share more of yourself to the world. Be loud about the things that are important to you and use social media to express it. Don’t be afraid to open up. Do everything with so much love in your heart that there’s no room for fear and always remember to have fun along the way.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20) – “I AM OPEN TO THE NEW AND CHANGING. EVERY MOMENT PRESENTS A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME MORE OF WHO I AM. I FLOW WITH LIFE EASILY AND EFFORTLESSLY.”
Life comes with highs and lows and the key this month is to move with the flow of it. You can be lost and wondering what tomorrow will bring, but you can also be present in the moment and live for today. Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be. If you’re working on changing bad habits, unhealthy thought patterns, negative emotions, or toxic behaviors, know that you are healing a part of this world by healing yourself. If you’re forced to change something in your life that’s out of your control, don’t be afraid to start over again. This time, you are not starting again from scratch, you are starting from experience.
