April begins with one big, giant "Ouch" from the universe. A cranky Total Lunar Eclipse in relationship-oriented Libra on April 4 will likely re-open any wound you thought was just starting to heal from the Uranus-Pluto square. Although this square made its final hit last month, this Lunar Eclipse will trigger the precise degree of that final hit, waking up all of the ugly potential. Most likely, this will reflect in a harsh awakening connected to a close relationship.
Love planet Venus enters scintillating Gemini on April 11, and remains there until May 7. Now, matters of the heart are quite cerebral. You must be with someone who piques your curious spirit in some way. If you're bored in your relationship but you do love your mate, consider signing up for a class together on a subject you've always wanted to learn about. Or, make time to talk to each other more.
A brilliant New Moon in Aries on April 18 signals a major personal fresh start in some area of your life. It's time to think about yourself a little more, and initiate whatever it is you know will make you feel complete, whole, and in the driver's seat of your life.
