April 2nd Horoscope

(Pluto) – MOON – (Pluto) – SATURN

April 2nd is quite an emotional time in the sign of Aries that brings a challenge to their Soul. Openness and spirit they possess at a young age tend to lead to disappointments, as if they were born to break, so they would be able to grow and make a strong foundation for something more genuine and truthful. For as long as they project their states, values, emotions and expectations on people around them, they won't be able to find the inner state of bliss and joy they seek. It is imperative to hold on to a healthy routine, for their bodies, hearts and minds need a lot more tenderness and expectations met than meets the eye.

Love and Emotions

Emotional world of a person born on the 2nd of April isn't as joyful and light as one would expect when they see their attitude. They will refuse to feel sorry for themselves and think they are obligated to pick up the pieces and move on from any hurtful experience. This deflective attitude will make them overly fragile and unable to deal with shadows of emotions they buried in the past. It is truly important for such individuals to face their fears and all states of their heart, so they can set free from unrealistic nostalgia and living in the past while chasing for the future.

Passionate and fiery, they could burn their own feelings with too much ease, while in need of someone deep and filled with understanding to sink into the foundation of love they carry within. They aren't interested in shallow relationships and short-term commitments unless in cases when they have lost faith and need some powerful healing and guidance.


Every Aries representative has a task to discover balance of Venus from their opposing sign of Libra. Still, those born on April 2nd need to do so with special focus, for their inspired nature and their ability to sense togetherness guide them towards relationships that will reflect their inner state of heart. Gratitude and love should be nurtured and enough of their attention turned to other people. If they wish to live their life in color, they should do so with inspiration and love every step of the way. Nothing will be gained by giving up on other people or closing their heart to the outer world.

What They Excel In

It is easy for them to cut through, move forwards, and separate those who aren't really endangered from those in actual need.
