Your ruling planet, Venus, remains in Aries and your relationship sector until the 14th. This continues to be a powerful time for you and your close relationships.
Love & Relationships
The Sun is in Aries until the 19th and talk planet Mercury is here from the 4th to the 19th. You may be in the throes of love.
Venus and Mars, the lovers of the heavens, unite on the 6th and this is a lovely connection. These two planets don’t get together very often but when they do, it’s time to sit up and take notice. Venus is in Aries and your relationship sector and Mars is in Gemini and the sector that rules foreign connections, the bigger picture.
This could signal a long-distance romance or discussing travel plans with the one you love. If you want to spice up a close relationship, do something unusual and life-enhancing together. Bring adventure into your love life.
The one question mark is that Venus isn’t strong in Aries, so be careful not to lose yourself in love or allow other people to dominate. Work at boosting your self esteem, especially if relationship issues are heightened.
If you’re a typical Libra, relationships are important to you, whether you’re in one or out of one. You tend to gravitate towards 1-to-1 partnerships in all areas of your life. Many of you are happiest when you’re in love and in a healthy, working relationship.
One Foot In The Past
There may, however, be issues at home or opposition from your family this month. Key planets in Aries and your relationship sector clash with Pluto in Capricorn and your home and family sector on the 12th, 16th & 17th. This is the time of the New Moon in Aries on the 12th, a symbol of new beginnings.
It depends on your current situation what this means to you. Notice if the past is holding you back in some way and consider where family or in-laws are a pull or a tie. There may be someone you’ve been unable to visit that’s caused you pain. Or, perhaps you’ve decided to break contact with someone close.
Notice where you’re stuck in the past and can’t move on. This might be linked to an ex, a past love situation or something personal to you. Be gentle with yourself if this is true for you.
Money, possessions, values and self-worth are foreground in the second half of April. Your planet Venus leads the way as it moves into Taurus and one of your money sectors on the 14th. Venus is swiftly followed by the Sun and Mercury moving into earth sign Taurus on the 19th.
Earth signs, like Taurus, favour financial and emotional security and you’re wise to turn your attention towards money matters.
This is important because the planet of change and the unexpected, Uranus, is active in Taurus from the 23rd to the 30th. This is rarely a stable influence on your finances. Sometimes, you can make money fast, even overnight, but you may see losses as well as wins.
This fast-paced planetary activity peaks during the Full Moon on the 27th which cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This is big planetary energy, emotional, volatile and exciting.
Taking a risk, playing big in life could reap rewards on or around this date. You might be able to take advantage of a changing financial market or find that money comes your way unexpectedly.
It is lively astrology, however, so be aware that a high risk strategy won’t always pay off. If you want to speculate, ensure you can afford to lose what you invest before leaping into action.
It feels as if things could move quickly for you in the second half of the month. During this period, action planet Mars enters Cancer and your career sector on the 23rd where it will remain throughout May and the first half of June.
This combination suggests that being daring and bold could pay off for you. Some of you will find that work picks up and fast during this period.
