Playbill Horoscopes Which Shakespeare Play Aligns with Your April 2024 Horoscope?

With the first Mercury retrograde of 2024 looming, will your month play out like a tragedy or a comedy of errors?

All the world’s a stage! Born in April 1564, William Shakespeare is considered one of the world's pre-eminent dramatists, so it only seems fitting that this month we examine which tragedy, comedy, or history play aligns with your horoscope. 

♈️ Aries ♈️

(March 21 – April 19)
Much Ado About Nothing
Aries, you can expect miscommunication this month as Mercury enters the first full retrograde cycle of the year. This can cause a lot of strife and unnecessary effects. Be careful of what you say this month and be extra cautious about following up and clarifying any possible confusion. Your workplace could be a particularly active aspect of your life, so be ready to correct errors and take accountability for mistakes. Luckily, Venus spends most of April in your sign, ushering in new romances. If you’re single, you’ll be likely to start a new flirtation. If you’re taken, you’ll find ways to fire up your relationship. This boost in your love life is amplified by the Solar Eclipse on April 8.

♉️ Taurus ♉️

(April 20 – May 20)
With Mercury retrograde entering your solar 12th house of the subconscious, you might be questioning yourself a bit this month. Existential thoughts of, “Who am I?”, “What makes me happy?”, and more will be running through your mind demanding answers. This may also put any future plans on hold, putting you in a bit of a rut. Luckily, once Mercury goes direct on the 25th, you’ll be able to move forward with any plans you put on hold. Expect an increase in family activity this month, with visitors from out of town coming to you for insight into their dilemmas and problems. Be sure to compose yourself and not let family ties and past drama distract you from your own life.

♊️ Gemini ♊️

(May 21 – June 20)
The Tempest
April is all about understanding yourself and your place in society more, Gemini. The Solar Eclipse in Aries in your 11th house of social networks and association, means the start of new directions related to an organization or group you’re part of. In your pursuit of self-understanding, you’ll find that intimacy comforts you more than usual this month. Whether it’s you and your partner sharing deep personal feelings or discussing any financial concerns, you’ll feel lighter opening up to someone. If you’re single, confide in a few close friends and lean on them. Set aside space for peaceful downtime this month to ensure reflection and introspection.

♋️ Cancer ♋️

(June 21 – July 22)
Romeo and Juliet
Cancer, don’t make any big decisions this month. Mercury Retrograde will greatly affect travel, detailed plans, and documentation. Make sure to take time to double-check everything you do. On the bright side, with the Sun, Venus, and Mercury in Aries in your 10th house of career and responsibilities for most of the month, you’ll find yourself excelling at work. This could mean your boss entrusts you with taking on a project on your own or you’ll be recognized for your work with increased financial compensation. Even as work ramps up, make sure to protect your peace. The Solar Eclipse around the 8th will make you particularly vulnerable and a potential unintended target for other people’s emotional states.

♌️ Leo ♌️

(July 23 – August 22)
April will be a start and-stop month for you, Leo, especially as this Mercury Retrograde affects your ninth house of travel, thoughts, and higher education. You’ll experience a few bumps in the road, but ultimately not as strong a retrograde as other signs may have. With the Aries New Moon also in your ninth house, expect to make travel plans and reconnect with people you might have recently been out of touch with. Your work will flourish this month, with your love life taking a back seat for a bit. At your job, carefully review your timelines, tasks, and documentation as Mercury Retrograde can cause a bit of brain fog. Schedule regular meetings with your boss this month to highlight the great work you’re doing and the extra effort you’re putting in.

♍️ Virgo ♍️

(August 23 – September 22)
Twelfth Night
With Mercury Retrograde in Aries at the start of the month, don’t take on any new projects or commitments just yet, Virgo. Once Mercury goes direct on the 25th, you’ll want to start reworking and editing assignments. While you might be on the lookout for romantic prospects (and a few promising ones on the horizon), your mind will mostly be on travel! Your main dilemma will not be if you should go, but where you should go. Will you travel domestically to places you know and love? Or will you venture out of the country into new experiences? These plans will become crystal clear, particularly once Mercury goes direct again.

♎️ Libra ♎️

(September 23 – October 22)
A Midsummer Night's Dream
Libra, communication is your focus this month, particularly with key people in your life including family, coworkers, partners, and neighbors. This will be especially important for you when Mercury goes retrograde in your seventh house of partnerships, ushering in mix-ups and misunderstandings. Lucky for you, Venus (the planet of love) will spend most of the month in Aries in your solar seventh house, offering a revitalization of your love life. You might be provided more opportunities and options in the romance department this month, just make sure you’re being clear about when you’re meeting and what you want out of a new relationship.

♏️ Scorpio ♏️

(October 23 – November 21)
With the Aries New Moon marking the first Solar Eclipse of the year in your sixth house of routines and work, you should expect to have a little shake-up at the start of the month. Your daily life will be filled with new challenges and goals that could put your energy levels to the test. Be discreet about behavior at work as gossip can spread quickly, especially if you’re trying to rise up in rank at your company. As for your love life, if you’re in a relationship, it’s smooth sailing this month. Wine and dine with your partner in crime, enjoy their company, and confide in them about anything that might be stressing you out. If you’re single, April might not be the best month for romance, but your time will come.

♐️ Sagittarius ♐️

(November 22 – December 21)
The Two Gentlemen of Verona
Slow down this month, Sagittarius! With Mercury in retrograde, you’ll literally be forced to. Take this downtime to work on any projects you’ve already started. But do not take on any new work, a vacation, or sign important documents. The planet of communication has the ability to cause a lot of chaos and commotion in large affairs during this time. Expect visits from relatives, whether you welcome them or not. Nearby relatives will likely want to have dinner or games nights with you. As the solar eclipse on the 8th is in your solar fifth house of lovers, creation, and social life, you’ll likely see your intimate relationships growing. This can mean becoming closer with a new friend or committing to a partner.

♑️ Capricorn ♑️

(December 22 – January 19)
As You Like It
You’ll be staying close to home this month, Capricorn. As you’re a naturally busy zodiac sign with workaholic tendencies, you’ll find your house to be the best space to avoid the craziness that a Mercury Retrograde can bring. Things may not go exactly as you’d like this month, but once Mercury goes direct on the 25th, it will free up energy to take action again. Use your home as a sanctuary from the outside world. Additionally, with the Sun, Venus, and Mercury all spending time in Aries in your solar fourth house of home, you’ll find that those nearest to you (especially if they live with you) will be more invested in their relationships with you and will be willing to help you out this month.

♒️ Aquarius ♒️

(January 20 – February 18)
The Taming of the Shrew
When Mercury in Aries goes retrograde in your solar third house of communication, you’ll be feeling the effects of it more than a lot of the other zodiac signs. With confusing dialogue and incomplete information, you’ll find yourself having to clarify and follow up a lot this month. Be sure to take a deep breath and focus on what’s in front of you. Keep a low profile at work and spend more time completing mundane tasks instead of starting new ones. Always examine your quality of work before submitting it to a higher-up—small mistakes caused by the retrograde this month can add up. Outside of work, you’ll find your quality of life improving in your friendships and neighborhood.

♓️ Pisces ♓️

(February 19 – March 20)
The Merchant of Venice
The first Mercury Retrograde of the year enters into your solar second house of purchasing power, putting a short strain on your finances for April. Avoid making any large financial decisions this month, such as purchasing a new car or renting a more expensive home. The Aries solar eclipse (also in your second house of income) will give birth to a series of new career discussions, which could flourish into more money for you down the line. Get together with your superiors to generate interest toward supporting a specific purpose or pitching an overarching idea for your company. Take this time to examine your skillset and find where you can grow.
