Virgo Horoscope: April 2018

In it for the long haul

Your love life is definitely interesting these days, Virgo. Frustrating … but interesting. Mars and Saturn are currently moving through your romance sector as April begins, and they'll align perfectly to one another on April 2. This is likely to bring a pushing-against-a brick-wall type of energy where you are trying so hard to move things along in a romantic relationship and yet, there appears to be frustrating blocks at every turn. The feelings you and this person share are likely to be quite significant -- and have long-term potential. The problem? Circumstances. It's as if circumstances beyond your control are blocking what you know could be the beginning of something amazing. And here you are, willing to stay the course, despite these current obstacles. It looks as if you've made the decision that, come hell or high water, you are in this for the long haul.

One possible scenario is that your lover is currently trying to move away from a pre-existing relationship or marriage that has a great deal of entanglement connected to it. Since your love can't make a clean break, it's causing all sorts of anxiety and aggravation on your part. And yet, you know your sweetheart wants to be with you and is making every effort to make this happen. It's just going to take a lot longer than either one of you anticipated. Whatever the personal details are in your love story, the common theme is one of needing to keep your suit of armor on early in the month so that you don't hurt yourself too much as you attempt to push through those obstacles.

You'll see a definite switch in energy after April 15 thanks to a New Moon in your 8th House of Intimacy accompanied by Mercury turning direct in the very same part of your chart. It's possible for a new course of action to begin that allows you to move towards a greater depth of connection with your love. If you are married, this might also relate to your shared finances. A sudden opportunity is possible but be sure to avoid any risky speculative venture at this time since that's not likely to work out in your favor.

Career becomes highlighted after April 24 thanks to Venus moving to the top of your chart. She'll remain in your 10th House of Profession and Honors through May 19, bringing you plenty of validation from VIPs and opportunities to get ahead. Use them well!

A Full Moon in your message sector on April 29 might bring help as you tie up a significant contract or negotiation. You'll be in a good place.
