April 4th is a day filled with limitations and static energies that lead to circumstances out of one's control. Lives of those born on this date can be quite challenging, for this entire setting speaks of blocked energies in one's life that induce all sorts of issues with pressure and imbalanced functioning. A lot of tenderness is needed in their Soul to accept their lives just as they are, and change them into lives they wish to live by taking full responsibility for what might feel like injustice at first.

April 4th Horoscope

(Pluto) – SATURN – (Pluto) – SATURN

This is the only planetary row with one Saturn standing by the other, and it can show a strong karmic sign that one's life will be overburdened with issues from their family tree. Genetics play a big part in their lives, and while the Sun in Aries is always strong, this signal speaks of limitations it will have to face and all those walls that this ram will try to put their head through. It is in their nature to search for acceptance and faith, but their instincts are often too strong to be ignored and they will feel a powerful differentiation between the Earth and the Sky, their practicality and spirituality, and dismiss one while choosing to live through the other, unaware that they need both.

Love and Emotions

With so many limitations and pulls of faith in lives of those born on April 4th, we have to understand that their love stories will be just as demanding as the rest of their life. Before the first return of Saturn when they are about 28 years old, they will mostly live out emotional stories of their ancestors. It is possible that they will discover that their grandparents had similar experiences in their youth, maybe even their parents. As this first cycle of life rounds up, things will change, and control will finally be found. This will leave them in search for someone they can connect with on a much deeper plane, but still limited by their prior experiences and hurt that they had to deal with in the past.

Although their Aries nature will push them into quick to come and go relationships, they will prefer contacts with a lot of substance. This could leave them in difficult relationships for a while for it might take long before they realize that they deserve something more suitable for their true inner nature than what they settle for every day.


A powerful line between Saturn on one side and Saturn on the other, will make those born on April 4th strict, ambitious and turned to constant planning. Their main goal is to stop living in the future or the past, choosing this moment to act inside it instead of imagining what waits ahead of the road. They need to find actual, true grounding, and follow through with their plans step by step, without any distractions getting in their way. If they find the right focus in their life and do something that is in sync with their personality as much as their convictions, they will be the ones to reach incredible heights as they take over their set of responsibilities in every situation that comes along.

What They Excel In

Aries representatives born on April 4th excel in every job that needs dedication, problem solving, and crossing obstacles along the way. They need structured environment to blossom and they will be soldiers who get the Medal of Honor, or mathematicians who endure in their research until they earn a Nobel Prize. Whatever the case, they need to show their status to the world and hard work will make them excel in really anything. The real challenge here is to discover talents that will help them do so with ease and joy.

We may presume with fair certainty that all circumstances and objective situations in lives of those born on the 4th of April will be a mirror of their inner state. Everything here is obvious, plain and simple, understandable to many people watching from the sidelines, but often too difficult to accept for those living inside this destiny.
