Early April brings you the chance to get clarity on some complex life issues - power, intimacy, emotional debts, and other difficult areas. That’s because, on April 3rd, Mercury moves into this zone of your natal birth chart, allowing open-minded discussion and intelligent decision-making.
A few days later, the Libra Full Moon urges you to put yourself first, especially if you have been tired or drained recently. This is your excuse to be unashamedly self-indulgent - do whatever you need to do to feel whole and empowered.
On April 11th, your ruling planet Venus changes signs and moves into the travel zone of your natal birth chart. If you’re single or dating, you might find yourself attracted to someone you meet while traveling, or someone from a very different culture, background, or faith to your own.
However, the major news for your love life this month is the Solar Eclipse in your opposite sign on April 20th. This powerful influence may bring drama and shocks to your relationship; try to avoid acting out of impulse or anger, as you may not yet have the full story. Stay calm and wait for the dust to settle.
Just hours after the Solar Eclipse, the Sun moves into the passion zone of your natal birth chart, but this too raises complex emotions within you, so take time to process how you feel.
The following day, April 21st, sees Mercury turning retrograde in this area of your chart, so you will have time for some soul-searching as April draws to a close. Don’t be afraid to explore your own motives within your relationship.
Jupiter, planet of growth and good luck, leaves your relationship sector, where he’s spent an idyllic last year, and moves into your sector of passion and beliefs. Some of you may have left an old relationship to start a new one, or left and stayed happily single. Or, maybe you experienced unprecedented growth in your relationship that’s left you feeling empowered as a couple. Whatever transpired for you, give it a moment of reflection as you move into the next phase of self-intimacy or intimacy with another. You’re going to be helped in so many wonderful ways in the year to come. All you have to do is open your arms and accept.
Your ruler, Venus, dances into a whole new sector of your natal birth chart this month. She’s gracing your friendship and community zone on June 5th, making this an extra-special month for new and old connections. Shimmy the night away or get together with those that adore you; it’ll feed your soul. Don’t be shy to set some grand new goals, either. Venus is spending an extra-long time here due to her retrograde next month, so you have plenty of time to fine-tune your visions of the future. Travel may also be on the cards for you, with the New Moon on the 18th, so go ahead and dream big.
