beauty horoscope Aries season 2021

Our beauty horoscope on how to navigate the month ahead


TextGrace McGradeIllustrationGabrielle Rosenstein

As we continue through Aries season, there is a chance for all the signs to focus on their sense of self and assertiveness

Grace McGrade is an intuitive astrologer and priestess based in Los Angeles. She is the co-founder of ASTRAL ORACLES and author of Palpable Magic; a website exploring prose about sex, love, Los Angeles and the occult. Her sessions include natal chart readings, energetic clearing and activations, and tarot readings.

April begins midway through Aries season, making all signs eager to brazenly redefine their sense of identity and practice self-assertion. Communication planet enters the sign of the Ram on April 3, and we are eager to speak our minds, sometimes despite the consequences. There is a quickening our exchange of information, inspired ideas and perhaps even occasional tempered flare up. We’re given the opportunity to ground these inspired ideas with lucrative intention setting on the New Moon in Aries on April 11. 

As the month progresses, we thankfully begin to seek comfort and stability over heated rebuttals. Pleasure planet Venus enters sensual Taurus on April 14, meaning we are looking to cosy up and tune into our bodies. When Venus is in her home turf of Taurus, we are imbued with a slower and more romantic energy. On April 19, Taurus season is in full swing, encouraging us to connect with our senses and seek to make our personal worlds more beautiful. The laidback sign of the Bull gives us the time to examine our personal definitions of beauty, comfort  and refinement, so find little ways to ritualise your daily routines and embrace the planet of love. 

The month ends on a more intense note, culminating with a Full Moon in Scorpio on April 26. Here, we are encouraged to dig deep, and inspect our relationship to intimacy and secrecy. Full Moons make the subconscious conscious, and in Scorpio we can expect nothing less than big revelations of truth and vulnerability. The following day, Pluto stations retrograde, pulling us towards a cycle of inner transformation and making us more perceptive.
