4/20 Horoscopes & Strains For Every Zodiac Sign

The legendary stoner holiday 4/20 is upon us, and so are the transits and astrological happenings associated with it. As spring and warm weather begin to roll in, spirits lift, and people spend more time outside under the sun—and, of course, the stars.

Smoking under the night sky is a thrilling experience. Whether you’re a seasoned astronomer or simply enjoy the wonderment of staring up at billions (nay, trillions) of sparkling orbs, humanity has long been guided by the lights in the heavens. We’ve used stars and planets for navigation, weather prediction, religion, space travel, art, and so much more.

One popular use of the planets and constellations is through astrology. Astrology is a complex, ancient art that involves divination and forecasting of human and earthly affairs through the movements of the stars, sun, moon, and planets within our solar system. Many consider astrology to be pseudoscience (interestingly enough, cannabis used to be viewed in a similar light), but many more believe fervently in it.

To celebrate our countdown to 4/20, we’re creating specialized horoscopes for every sun sign and including which strains you should toke up on this weekend, personalized to each zodiac. Even if you’re an astrology naysayer, we recommend trying it out—you may just surprise yourself!

Influences for All Signs

April 20th will bring about one of the most important astrological events of the entire year: Jupiter’s conjunction with Uranus. A conjunction happens when two planets are close together, typically in the same sign, allowing for their energies to join and strengthen. Coming right off the heels of two major eclipses, which shook things up in a big way, this occurrence will balance out that tumultuous energy and bring forth more grounded times. The conjunction will impact people with Taurus placements the most, but everyone can benefit from it. You may notice changes in finances, agriculture, the environment, and other earthly matters.

We’re also on the tail end of Mercury Retrograde in Aries from April 1-April 25, but don’t panic. Mercury Retrograde isn’t all bad! To get a better grasp of how this will impact you, explore your chart to see what’s ruled by Aries. Those placements will experience the biggest changes, demonstrating what parts of you will be most affected by retrograde. For example, if your Mars is in Aries, you may find yourself feeling particularly assertive and motivated to go after your goals. Overall, however, Mercury Retrograde will help you reflect on your past and inner desires while also revealing what needs to be adjusted in your life.

To fully feel this energy on 4/20, embrace change, growth, prosperity, and optimism for the future. Stay fluid and adaptable to whatever may come, and tap into your inner wisdom for an extra boost. Most importantly, be true to your inner spirit!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

We’ll start with Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. Ruled by fire and the planet Mars, the Ram is known for being bold, confident, voracious, and lively. This hot-headed sign tends to act first and think later, but its charisma and well-meaning approaches often lead to success.

On 4/20, Aries will largely be impacted by the moon in Virgo opposing their ruling planet, Mars. Oppositions often lead to heightened energy and sensitivity, so it’s vital to put forth effort in staying calm and rational to avoid arguments, overspending, or moodiness. This transit can help you learn to balance difficult emotions. On the flip side, this is passionate energy, making for an excellent day to go after what you truly want.

Chemdawg, or Chem D, is a bold sativa ready to take the world by storm, just like an Aries. Passionate and energetic Chemdawg is ready to seize the day and provide a productive high. Both Aries and Chemdawg are trailblazers. Just as Aries dives into new experiences with enthusiasm, Chemdawg delivers a fast-acting, uplifting high that sparks creativity and invigorates the mind. In essence, Aries and Chemdawg share a vibrant, dynamic nature, making them a perfect match for those who embrace bold experiences and challenges. Try out this strain today to achieve a productive 4/20 Saturday. 

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Of all the signs, 4/20 will be impacting Taurus the most–which makes sense for this earthy, cannabis-loving placement. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, and they are known for being down-to-earth, reliable, and committed. They adore routine and nature, and you can often find them participating in outdoor sports or coming up with little ways to treat their loved ones.

Taurus gets to enjoy some lovely transits on 4/20. Some of you also get to celebrate your birthday! The moon in Virgo will be trining with Jupiter and Uranus, both in Taurus (trines occur between planets that are four zodiac signs apart). These transits create harmony and balance, leading to social and financial success. Taurus placements will experience opportunities, ambition, creativity, and heightened popularity on this day–a single Taurus may even meet someone special.

Cereal Milk is a hybrid strain that will ensure the sometimes lazy Taurus can accomplish their goals. Taurus, often associated with a love for comfort and indulgence, finds a perfect match in Cereal Milk, a hybrid strain known for its unique flavor and balanced effects. Arousing, giggly, and relaxing, this strain will allow the Taurus to honor their ruling planet, Venus. Both embrace pleasure and relaxation, which are perfect for earthy Tauruses on this revered holiday. 

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Geminis catch a lot of flack, but this is a truly special sign with a lot to offer. Ruled by the air element and the planet Mercury, Geminis are playful, curious, smart, and social. Surprisingly perceptive and artistic, Geminis are also positive and influential to those around them. They work well in careers involving communication, such as teaching, writing, media, or sales.

Those with this sun sign placement will find themselves booked and busy this month, with lots happening in their career and social lives. By 4/20, all of this hectic activity will be calming down somewhat, allowing for a chiller weekend and a chance to look inward and reflect on your goals and habits. If there is any negativity in your life that you wish to shed, now is the time to do so. Don’t be afraid to rely on others–your loved ones are ready and waiting to help you achieve your dreams.

Gemini, known for its dual nature and love for communication, pairs harmoniously with Gary Payton, a balanced hybrid strain. Gary Payton’s effects are giggly, talkative, and euphoric, mirroring the social and communicative traits of a Gemini. It encourages conversation and laughter, making social interactions more enjoyable for Gemini. Both Gemini and Gary Payton are lively and expressive. The strain’s even-keeled high complements Gemini’s adaptable nature, helping to balance out their dual personalities. Take a few puffs of this strain today to reach your goals while having fun. 

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Soft, sensitive Cancer is ruled by the Moon and the element water. Cancers, also known as the Crab, are nurturing, intuitive, deeply emotional, and passionate. You’ll rarely encounter another sign with this level of compassion and emotional intelligence, but watch out–they are also incredibly strong when needed and will fight for what they believe in.

April is a big career month for Cancers, and you may find yourself feeling inspired to make some major changes. However, hold off on implementing them until May to ensure that you fully lay out your plans before taking action. It’s crucial to wait for these transits to pass lest you make a hasty decision. The upcoming full moon on April 23 will also highlight love and romance for you, so be prepared for some intense emotions on the horizon. 4/20 offers a chance to relax and unwind before the impending shake-ups, and we recommend leaning into it. Give yourself some grace and rest, Cancers!

Gelato is an evenly balanced hybrid strain that gives the consumer a relaxing and euphoric high. With effects that ease pain rapidly and provide mental stimulation and productivity, this strain is perfect for the sometimes overly emotional sign of Cancer. Gelato’s euphoric effects resonate with Cancer’s desire for emotional fulfillment, creating a harmonious experience that aligns with their nurturing and sensitive nature. In essence, Gelato complements Cancer’s nurturing nature by offering relaxation, mental stimulation, and emotional comfort, making it an ideal companion for this compassionate and emotionally attuned sign. Gelato can help you fully embrace rest and relaxation during hectic times like Mercury Retrograde. 

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Leos, or the Lions of the zodiac, are fire signs ruled by the Sun itself. This vivacious sign is ferocious, loyal, confident, and highly ambitious. Leos are represented by the “Strength” card in Tarot, and this couldn’t be more accurate. They love being in the spotlight, and you’d be hard-pressed to find another sign as authentically themselves as a Leo.

Finances and career moves are crucial for Leos throughout the month of April, but particularly on 4/20. The Jupiter/Uranus conjunct today will give you a chance to show off what you’re good at, allowing you to shine in your workplace and hobbies. You may find yourself at the center of attention more than usual today, so embrace it! However, make sure to stay grounded throughout this and stay true to your budget–overspending is easy during career success.

Runtz is a rare hybrid strain that embodies the talkative, happy, and giggly aura of a Leo. As the Strain of the Year in 2020, Runtz, like Leo, loves the spotlight. Both Leo and Runtz are lively and colorful, and the strain’s sweet and fruity terpenes mirror Leo’s zest for life and vibrant energy. Runtz’s balanced effects complement Leo’s outgoing and confident nature. It offers an uplifting and euphoric high that encourages creativity and social interaction, aligning perfectly with Leo’s love for attention and social gatherings. On 4/20, Runtz can help you tap into your inner power and see yourself as the star you are. 

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

As another earth sign, Virgos are incredibly industrious and hard workers. Virgos, also ruled by Mercury, have minds that tend to run a mile a minute, always planning their next move. Despite their inner perfectionism, they remain kind and are happy to help those they love with whatever they need. This is also one of the funniest signs in the entire zodiac, with a dry, sarcastic sense of humor that will leave you in stitches.

The moon in Virgo on 4/20 will create many influences for this sign. The moon’s trine with Jupiter will create artistic spirits, and you may feel inspired to tackle philanthropic or generous endeavors. There will also be a lovely moon trine with Uranus, leading to strong urges to travel or zealous optimism. Tread carefully, though, as the moon’s oppositions with Mars and Neptune can exacerbate feelings of moodiness and melancholy. Express yourself through creation to balance out these heightened energies.

Virgo, known for its practicality and attention to detail, pairs well with Mimosa, a sativa-dominant hybrid strain with a fruity and citrusy aroma. Happy and level-headed, this strain, just like a Virgo, has the motivation and drive to finish even the most mundane tasks. Mimosa’s energizing and mood-boosting effects complement Virgo’s practical and diligent personality. It encourages focus and productivity, aligning perfectly with Virgo’s meticulous nature and desire for efficiency. This strain has great medical relief for symptoms of anxiety and depression that the overthinker Virgo may be prone to, which can help Virgos explore creativity on 4/20. 

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Libra, the Scales of the zodiac, are very balanced like their symbol. An air sign ruled by Venus, Libras are friendly, charming, and quick-witted. They love romance and partnership, and they frequently seek out people who are as extroverted as them. You can always count on Libras to be truthful and frank, understanding that they’ll give you a true, fair perspective on your situation.

The moon moves into Libra on 4/20, aligning with Libra’s passion for love. You’ll feel drawn to your partner today, wanting to spend quality time with them and have conversations that can push your relationship forward. Single Libras will find themselves open to new partnerships, whether it be romantic or platonic. You’ll be experiencing revelations surrounding your partnerships all throughout April, culminating in profound ideas and ways of doing things that will have you entering a new chapter of your life.

Libra, known for its harmonious nature and love for balance, pairs well with Apple Fritter, a great hybrid strain combining the stone of GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) with the energy of a Diesel strain, resulting in a sweet and spicy aroma reminiscent of baked goods. Both Libra and Apple Fritter value harmony and pleasure. The strain’s sweet and spicy terpenes mirror Libra’s refined taste and appreciation for beauty. Its balanced effects inspire calmness and contentment, helping Libra maintain their sense of balance amidst life’s challenges–which there will be no shortage of during April’s transits. 

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Spicy Scorpios, ruled by water, are another sign that often gets an unfairly bad rep. While they may be seen as being sneaky or conniving, they’re actually very intuitive and perceptive. People with Scorpio placements are deeply devoted to those they care about, and they can be highly industrious and hard-working.

The solar eclipse and Mercury Retrograde may have led to overworking throughout April for Scorpios, so don’t push yourself too hard. It’s easy to find yourself in a period of burnout after working through such intense weeks. Focus on achieving a healthy work-life balance that won’t exhaust you or leave you unmotivated at work entirely. As far as love, the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction on 4/20 will result in you feeling more open to romance than ever. Scorpios are known for taking time to build trust in relationships, but this transit could lead to quick connections and intense emotions. Stay open to any potential shifts and embrace sudden changes.

Scorpio, known for its intense passion and transformative nature, pairs well with GMO, a potent Indica-dominant strain with a unique garlic and mushroom aroma. The strain’s bold garlic and mushroom terpenes resonate with Scorpio’s powerful and enigmatic energy. Its grounding effects help Scorpio delve into their emotions and face challenges with strength and resilience, which will be necessary during the powerful energies occurring this week. 

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Sagittarius are the centaur archers and wanderers of the Zodiac. They value friendship and humor, and their carefree spirit is often infectious. Ruled by fire and the planet Jupiter, this sign tends to have a temper that flares up as quickly as it dissipates, as Sag has no time for petty troubles. They’re always looking for their next adventure.

Sagittarians feed on chaos and change, and the transits this month create a perfect environment for them to thrive. The transits on 4/20 will result in shake-ups to your daily routine, and you may find yourself wanting to try out a new pursuit in love or your career. However, be careful to reign in your blunt and reckless tendencies until after Mercury stations direct on April 25. Take this day to reflect on any major life changes you’ve been through recently and lay out plans for upcoming changes you’d like to enact.

Sagittarius, known for its adventurous spirit and optimistic outlook, pairs well with Tropicana Banana, a vibrant and flavorful hybrid strain. It’s uplifted, energetic, and focused, just like a Sagittarius on the go. It sparks creativity and encourages exploration, aligning perfectly with Sagittarius’ love for new experiences and challenges. With a sweet aroma and flavor that has you ready for your next tropical getaway, you’ll quickly find yourself searching for new trips to take after just a few tokes. 

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Capricorn, the sea goat, is the final earth sign of the zodiac. Proud yet motivated and humble, this sign is independent and often successful in their pursuits. While they carry some of the stubbornness associated with earth signs, they also know when to be sensitive to the needs of those around them.

There’s a strong focus on themes of home and stability for Capricorns this month. You may have noticed changes in how you feel regarding your career this month, so tap into your inner focus, adaptability, and wisdom to navigate them purposefully. If you can do this, good news is on the horizon, whether it’s related to an influx of new customers or financial gain. Additionally, you may find yourself wanting to plan a trip or vacation for yourself soon to take a break from work–reach out to your Sagittarius friends for help on this one.

Peach Crescendo’s uplifting and euphoric high complements Capricorn’s disciplined and goal-oriented personality. It provides a burst of creativity and motivation, aligning perfectly with Capricorn’s ambitious nature and drive for success. Both Capricorn and Peach Crescendo value hard work and quality. The strain’s refined flavors and balanced effects mirror Capricorn’s appreciation for excellence and dedication, which will beautifully harmonize with the themes of career that have been present for Caps all month. 

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Aquarians are an ever-changing, mystifying sign. No two Aquarians are exactly alike, and they can range from fluid and open to moody and reclusive. This sign is ruled by air and the planet Uranus, two elements known for their unpredictable nature. Intelligence is highly important to Aquarius, who are often in pursuit of expansion and higher knowledge.

Be open to surprises on 4/20, as the planet’s energies could result in unexpected changes in your home or work. You may finally be finishing up a big project at your job, potentially leading to a cash flow–save it for a rainy day, Aquarius! Now is not the time for rash spending. Although you may have experienced relationship difficulties throughout Mercury Retrograde, those should be easing up this weekend and allowing for stronger communication with your partner and friends.

Aquarius, known for its innovative thinking and independent spirit, pairs well with Kush Mints, a balanced hybrid strain known for its calming and introspective effects. The strain’s minty terpenes and balanced effects mirror Aquarius’ analytical and thoughtful nature. Kush Mints’ calming and relaxing high complements Aquarius’ intellectual and curious personality. It also encourages deep reflection and introspection, which matches Aquarius’ desire for intellectual stimulation and understanding. Try Kush Mints while working on your budget, planning a big talk with your partner, or sorting out details for your 4/20 hangout with friends. 

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

The final sign in the tropical Zodiac is Pisces, which is represented by the element water and the symbol of two fish. Pisces tend to dwell in dreams and fantasies, often wandering through unspoken worlds in their heads. While Pisces can struggle to stay grounded in reality, they have a psychic connection to spiritual realms that is unmatched by any other sign. They are also incredibly sensitive, creative, and empathetic.

The transits on 4/20 will highlight communication for you, dear Pisces, as well as themes of self-love. You may find yourself having powerful emotional breakthroughs that lead to an increase in inner strength and power. The current planetary energies are building you up to an incredible six months, where you’ll experience new heights in love and devotion. For today, you’ll find yourself emboldened with new ideas and wisdom. Don’t hide your inner truth from the world!

Pisces, known for its intuitive nature and dreamy disposition, pairs beautifully with Strawberry Banana, also known as Strawnana, a sweet and relaxing hybrid strain. Both Pisces and Strawnana are gentle and creative souls. The strain’s fruity aroma and calming effects mirror Pisces’ imaginative and empathetic qualities. The strain’s sweet strawberry and banana flavors resonate with Pisces’ whimsical and romantic nature, which can help sweet Pisces embody their true selves during the 4/20 weekend.
