Your monthly beauty horoscope: April 2020

Collectively, we have a clean slate to imagine a new future as the outdated structures of the past dismantle around us

Grace McGrade is an intuitive astrologer and priestess based in Los Angeles. She is the co-founder of ASTRAL ORACLES, an open-source spiritual community, and author of Palpable Magic; a website exploring prose about sex, love, Los Angeles and the occult.

April presents a powerful opportunity to lay out the framework for the future, as spring inspires us to leave the past behind, you can begin setting collective intentions for the possibilities ahead.

The world wobbles on unstable footing since the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in January, but with the Astrological New Year that began on March 19, we are ready to plunge into a brand new cycle of collective evolution.

We are given temporary downtime from the collective intensity, and have the space to tap into our creative gifts. We begin April in individualistic, fiery Aries, and graduate through the beauty-oriented sign of Taurus. In Aries, we are driven to explore the realm of new possibilities with a clean slate.  We are venturing into new creative projects, utilising the tools we have around us, and taking inventory of our resources. As we follow our inner spontaneity, we can come up with clever new ways to express ourselves individually.

The recurring themes of Cancer (the home, the feminine and nurturing) and Capricorn (authoritative structures, the masculine and discipline) from last year's eclipses are still ongoing, and all signs are working hard to find stable footing between the two. Collectively, we have a clean slate to imagine a new future, as the outdated structures of the past dismantle around us. We are encouraged by the heavens to dream up a new world, and on a personal level, formulate new methods to exhibit our individual gifts using the medium of creativity.
