Your weekly horoscope for March 31 to April 6, 2024, will bring you back into the past. April starts off with a Mercury retrograde in Aries on April 1 (lasting until April 24), which is when the planet appears to move in reverse in the sky. It’s been a while since Mercury backpedaled in Aries—in fact, since the spring of 2018. Try to think back to what you were focused on, or what was driving you nuts, during that time period: Similar topics and frustrations might pop up to be revisited.

When Mercury is retrograde in fire-sign Aries, we’re tasked with turning inward and reflecting on our personal goals and desires. This is a productive time to reconnect with your courage, fearlessness, and confidence. It’s time to put yourself first!

This is a productive time to reconnect with your courage, fearlessness, and confidence.

Also on April 1, the last quarter moon in Capricorn activates themes from the March 25 lunar eclipse in Libra. The day’s energy is all about release and letting go. Shortly after, two of the most romantic planets in the sky, Venus and Neptune, join together in Pisces on April 3, making it easy to feel enchanted by others and by life in general. This is a beautiful day for tender conversations and expressing declarations of love.

The sun in Aries meets with the north node (a point in the sky associated with fate and the future) in Aries on April 4, weaving destiny into your day. Any recognition you receive on this day feels meant to be and like it pushes you forward on your path.

On the same day, Venus, the planet of relationships and values, enters Aries, putting you in a bolder mood when it comes to going after what and whom you desire. Love affairs can heat up quickly but also have the potential to fizzle out just as fast. Before the week ends, however, Venus forms a supportive sextile aspect with transformative Pluto in Aquarius on April 6, imbuing more substance and depth into all of your close connections.

To learn more about what these cosmic moves have in store for you this week, read on to find your zodiac sign’s weekly horoscope for March 31 to April 6, 2024 (and read for your sun sign and your rising sign for the most accurate forecast).
