April 2018 is the first normal month of this year, when we talk about the moon phases. Indeed, in January we had two full moons, in February there was no full moon, in March there were, again, two different full moons in the same month. In April, there is one full moon (in Scorpio, on April 30th, making us aware of our deepest desires).

This month, Saturn (on 17th) and Pluto (on 22nd) turn retrograde in Capricorn, so that we need to be more organized and disciplined.
