Happy Aries Season, Stargazers! Rams, as the first sign in the Zodiac calendar, are natural-born leaders. This month, you will get to borrow some of that head-strong zest for life.

This is also a special month for Pisces. There is a stellium in the fish sign with Neptune, the Moon, Mars, Juno, and Jupiter all rushing to hang out with the last sign in the zodiac on April 26.

Strains for Aries season: March 20 – April 18, 2022 

In addition, there is a partial solar eclipse on April 30, and the annual Lyrid meteor shower will take place from April 21 to April 22. Lots to look forward to this month, just remember not to let your horns get too big for your head to carry.

Your April horoscope

Happy Birthday, Aries! This is your month to own the spotlight without hesitation. You were brought to this earth to help yourself and others learn true power. Things kick off with Venus entering Pisces on April 5. This bodes well for your romantic and friendship-focused endeavors. No better time to plan a trip somewhere with someone you love (maybe a little birthday celebration?).

On April 10, Mercury enters Taurus — this bodes particularly well for communication between partners and colleagues. On April 14, your ruler Mars enters into Pisces as well. Don’t be shocked if you’re feeling extra compassionate for those struggling around you.

Feelings this deep can be intimidating, but remember that you are here to own your life and be unapologetically you. On April 19, we kick off Taurus season and hedonism will be all the rage. Honor your inner bull by not buying into the hype that you have to sell your soul to capitalism to be truly happy. Most of all, enjoy this month of yours and make sure to really take in all of the positive words of encouragement people have to say about you.

April strain: If you’re looking for some invigoration and creative inspiration, look no further than Chemdawg #4. This hybrid has a delightful mix of citrus and pine-y notes, and it offers a balanced body-mind buzz. Users report this strain is great for advanced users who have a high tolerance (but newbies, take caution!)

Happy April Taurus, and happy early birthday to some of you bulls. The month of April can be a little chaotic for the second sign in the zodiac. Rams and Bulls have a notoriously intense dynamic. That said, there is much inner wisdom to be gained this month if you know where to look.

Things start with your ruler, Venus, entering Pisces. This means good things for love but it can also feel a little like an emotional dam ready to burst. Take lots of breaks and time to yourself to recover. On April 10, Mercury enters your sign and all will be right with the world for a few weeks. Things will be going at just the speed you want them to. On April 19, we officially begin Taurus season.

Lean into all of your self-care rituals and teach others the importance of pampering themselves. The month ends with a new moon in your sign as well as a partial solar eclipse on April 30. You’ll be ready to conquer whatever comes next. 

April strain: If you’re looking to take everything into the slow lane this month, pack a bowl of  Sour Banana Sherbet. This hybrid is made from a cross of Sour Diesel and Banana Sherbet — two classic strains. The taste is sweet and tangy, and the results often leave users napping on the couch. It’s the perfect, rainy, spring strain.

Energizing strains to make spring cleaning a breeze

Welcome to the month of the Ram, Gemini. As an air sign, you can expect to be fully under the spell of fiery Aries. Think of yourself like a nice cool breeze that will come along and temper some of the hotter emotions that will come along this month. April starts with Venus entering Pisces on April 5. Romance and interpersonal relationships will be both positive and at the forefront of your mind.

On April 10, your ruler Mercuries enters into Taurus. Let the even-keeled vibes this brings wash away any petty concerns between friends. On April 14, Mars also joins the party in Pisces. If you’ve been feeling out of kilter spiritually, this is a great time to reconnect with whatever brings you to the source. On April 16, there is a Full Moon in Libra.

Bring out a sketchbook and draw up a vision of your future. It doesn’t have to look good, it just has to come from the heart. Most importantly, take this month to get in touch with your own authenticity and power — it’s what any good Ram would do!

April strain: If you’re longing for simpler times this month, spark up some Skunk Hero. This is a hybrid strain is the progeny of the 1990s strain, Super Skunk. The aromas, as the name implies, are potent, and the effects are cerebral and relaxing. Users love this strain for its propensity to slow down thoughts and melt away anxieties.

Happy Season of the Ram, Cancer. As a water sign, you might struggle to find balance during this fiery month. All this means is that it is a great time to tap into quiet, introspective habits. If you don’t yet have any of these habits, you can focus on building them. On April 5, Venus enters Pisces. Passion, love, and communication will be at the front of your mind. On April 14, your ruler Mars enters into Pisces as well. This is the perfect time to find your spiritual groove. Set up an altar, do a tarot reading — whatever feels right and brings you to your source.

On April 16, there is a full moon in Libra. Place arts and crafts supplies somewhere highly visible so that when creativity strikes (and it will), you’ll be ready to embrace it. On April 19, we begin Taurus season. You’ll start to feel the world right itself again under stable and self-secure Taurus. On April 29, Mercury enters Gemini. Friends will be feeling extra gregarious — have a friend date night. Cook a big meal and bring everyone together. It’s what you do best.

April strain: Since this is shaping up to be a mixed bag of a month for you, Cancer, pack a relaxing bowl of Star Killer. This is an indica-dominant hybrid strain with 21% THC — making the perfect choice for a calm night in. Medical users report it’s a great aid for treating pain, insomnia, and stomach issues. Melt into the couch and let Star Killer remind you that you’re a boss zodiac babe.

Happy April, Leo! You’ll feel right at home this month under the influence of fellow fire sign, Aries. Things get revved up with Venus entering Pisces on April 5. Lots of lovey, gooey vibes to go around. Soak up all the love and affection your friends offer, it will fuel you creatively and spiritually. On April 10, Mercury enters into bold Taurus. This pairing will bring out strong communication from almost everyone in your inner circle. Be prepared for some hard (but honest) truths to come to the surface.

Your ruler, the Sun, enters Taurus on April 19. The second half of the month will be stable and even a little hedonistic if you manage it right. On April 29, Pluto goes into backward motion in Capricorn. This is months-long journey that will have everyone taking a close look at their priorities. Continue to shine your light this month and you’ll be pleasantly surprised who is drawn to it.

April strain: Have your pie and eat it too this month, Leo. Specifically, check out Red Velvet Pie. This hybrid strain features gorgeous colors and creamy flavors that users report taste like a mix between chocolate and cinnamon. Users also report that this is a very giggly strain. A great reminder not to take things too seriously this month.

Happy April, Virgo. And what a month it will be. You’ll have a somewhat mercurial Ram Season, given that Earth and Fire signs are notoriously finicky together. That said, it’s not all negative. Earth and fire can create some beautiful moments together. Focus on that energy this month and you are bound to have a great time.

On April 10, your ruler Mercury enters into dependable Taurus. This bodes well for everything from communication to finances. You’ll be at peak performance so don’t put off projects you’ve been wanting to start. On April 14, Mars enters Pisces. Focus on spiritual endeavors and take a moment to honor what a beautiful and kind soul you have. People flock to your energy and that is its own kind of holiness.

On April 16, there is a full moon in Libra. Double down on the self-appreciation and paint or draw a self-portrait. Try to discover something new about yourself through art. You really can’t fail.

April strain: Take a trip to (and on) the Candy Store. This hybrid strain has 24% THC, so it packs a punch. Don’t expect to get much done after you pack a bowl of this stuff, but … that’s kind of the point, isn’t it? You deserve an afternoon of rest this month. Users report that this strain is also great for slowing the mind down.

It’s Ram Season, Libra. You’re deep in the throws of spring and as an air sign you will fuel and be fueled by the fiery energy of Aries. On April 5, your ruler Venus goes into Pisces. Love and kindness will be at the forefront of everything you do. Pass along good vibes in the form of a random act of kindness for someone.

On April 10, Mercury enters Taurus. There will be a sudden shift to a more level, pragmatic type of communication. On April 14, Mars joins the Pisces party and brings with it an intense need to access your spiritual practices. If you don’t have them — build some! It can be as simple as setting aside some time for mindful meditation.

You’ll know what feels right. On April 29, Mercury enters Gemini. The month rounds out with some flirty energy. Be sure to point that in the right direction and you’ll have a swell time.

April strain: Bit of a wild month, eh? Lean into the chaos with the help of some Bonkers. This hybrid strain has 25% THC, so new users should beware. The cream and citrus flavors are a delicious bonus to the mellow buzz.

Bring out those horns, Scorpio. It’s Aries Season! This month will be a little tumultuous for water signs under the fiery influence of Aries. On April 5, Venus enters Pisces. Love and good communication will be priorities for you at the beginning of the month.

On April 14, one of your rulers (Mars) also enters Pisces. This pairing often brings up strong spiritual energy. Tap into whatever this means to you. Go with the flow and you might find that you are already deep into a spiritual practice (or practices). Your other ruler, Pluto, goes retrograde in Capricorn on April 29. This is a long retrograde so it’s best to get lots of rest at the end of this month to prepare for the metamorphosis the next few months will bring.

April strain: Emotions may run a little high this month. Be ready with some Citrus Sap. This is a sativa-dominant hybrid born from a cross between two classics: GG4 and Tangie. The result is a bud that is both gorgeous and tastes delicious. Medical users go to this strain for help with depression, stress, and anxiety.

Why does weed make some people paranoid?

Hey Sag, you made it to April! Congratulations and welcome to one of the fieriest of seasons (next to your own) — Ram Season. You’ll be right at home in the flame and heat of Aries. On April 5, Venus enters into sweet Pisces. Love and affection will be priorities for you at the beginning of the month.

On April 14, Mars enters Pisces as well. The Pisces party will rage on the rest of the month, meaning your feelings will be extra big the entire month. While this might be slightly uncomfortable if you embrace it those big emotions will have a lot to teach you. Your ruler, Jupiter is in direct motion this month, so trust your instincts. Things are shaping up to be very formative for the rest of the year.   

April strain: This is the month to treat yourself to something a little sweet. Ethos Cookies is a hybrid strain and users report that this is a great bud for the common aches and pains life can bring. Kick back with a joint and start a new show or book — you deserve it.

Happy April, Cap! This month will be what you make of it. Earth signs like you and fire signs like Aries have a notoriously mercurial relationship. That said, both signs have much to teach one another. Enter April with an open mind and heart and you will have so much to gain and virtually nothing to lose.

On April 10, Mercury enters bold and secure Taurus. Your voice and ideas will be strong and well-received so don’t be afraid to share them. On April 14, Mars enters Pisces. Sweet and sensitive Pisces will drive your emotions during the second and third weeks of the month. Be gentle with yourself and anyone else struggling to find emotional equilibrium during this period.

April 19 begins Taurus season. Really invest in your self-care routine. Bath bombs, your favorite takeout, a great new novel — whatever it takes to remind yourself that you are worthy of care and gentleness. Finally, the new moon and solar eclipse in Taurus on April 30 will usher in a reinvention period for you. Great surprises await on the other side of your comfort zone.

April strain: Aries season can have people feeling bold and carefree. Lean into all that good stuff with the help of some Slapz. This hybrid strain has a skunky scent profile and users report that it offers great cerebral effects that come on quick (hence the name). Some smokers even report that it helps with life’s daily aches and pains.

Do you feel a pair of horns growing? Fear not, it’s just Aries season! Welcome to April, a month that will bring out your best personality traits, and it will force you to evaluate those traits which no longer serve you. Be gentle through this process and you will enter May from a place of peace and harmony.

On April 14, Mars enters Pisces. Kind Pisces and Mars together will usher in a spiritual period that will enrich your personal life and your friendships. Have a bonfire or musical jam session with people you love. None of it needs to be good, it just needs to be authentic.

On April 16, there is a full moon in Libra. The theme for the middle of the month is art, art, art. Be brave enough to be bad at something new. The month rounds out with a new moon in Taurus on April 30, inviting everyone to evaluate what kind of relationship they have with themselves. Be ready for some surprises on the horizon.

The party in your sign continues on April 20 when Juno enters your sign. This is a great time to discover a new meal or a passion for cooking. It is officially Taurus Season on April 19, after all, and no one knows luxury like a Bull.

Welcome all of that lush self-care with open arms. You have earned it and this month will have lots of people clamoring at your door to enjoy your generous and nurturing spirit. Be sure to take time for yourself.

April strain: Channel a relaxing day on the beach from wherever in the world you happen to be with the help of Florida Kush. This hybrid strain has a fruity taste and heavy body effects.
