This is an exciting time of year for your relationships as the sun illuminates the partnership sector of your chart—it’s a wonderful moment to connect with people and learn more about your partner’s point of view. This is a fantastic time to look for a relationship, and if you’re already attached, Aries season puts your focus on compatibility, compromise, and communication!
On April 2, communication planet Mercury in Pisces connects with Pluto in Capricorn, helping you get organized at home and in your personal life. You may be getting rid of things you no longer need (Pluto loves a good purge of unnecessary items) or handling some paperwork (Mercury is all about letters!). The energy shifts on April 3 when Mercury enters Aries, activating the relationship sector of your chart, finding your partners especially straightforward and talkative—there’s no beating around the bush when Mercury flies through Aries! Venus is also in Aries at the start of the month, bringing blessings to your partnerships, inspiring sweetness, and encouraging compromise, and it connects with Mars in Gemini on April 6, inspiring an especially fun, flirtatious mood. The energy might be competitive, but in a thrilling sort of way!
Mars clashes with Neptune in Pisces on April 9, stirring up some confusion in your schedule. People might be flaky and unfortunately, dishonest or prone to taking the easy way out. There’s a lazy energy in the air, but a more grounded one flows around communication as Mercury connects with Saturn in Aquarius on April 10, finding you and your partners having serious discussions about standards, boundaries, and commitments. Also on this day, your ruling planet Venus connects with Jupiter in Aquarius, inspiring an open-hearted, generous mood.
The new moon in Aries arrives on April 11, marking the beginning of a fresh start in your relationships: This is a wonderful time to meet someone new or to wipe the slate clean in already established partnerships! However, relating isn’t always easy: This is an intense new moon as Venus also clashes with the planet of the underworld, Pluto, currently in Capricorn, which could find you in a power struggle with a family member, someone very close to you, someone from your past, or someone who is trying hard to enter your inner circle. Themes like jealousy and control may come to the surface. One of the best ways to deal with this energy is to bring in an unbiased third party; people tend to be on better behavior when they know they’re being watched! Exposing the truth is a powerful move that’s sure to change some dynamics.
The sun connects with Mars on April 13, creating an inspiring and confident atmosphere, and it’s an exciting time to connect with people, especially folks abroad.

Venus enters Taurus on April 14, bringing a big shift in energy to your finances: Someone may be interested in investing in you, complicated issues might be smoothed over, or a gift may come your way. This is a powerful time to work out problems concerning debts, taxes, and inheritances—but don’t over-indulge or spend more than you have! If you’re in debt, make time to create a budget and ask for the help you need.
The sun connects with lucky Jupiter on April 15 and clashes with Pluto on April 16, bringing some exciting news—but power struggles and control issues may also pop up. Don’t shy away from asking for help, or from sharing the truth about your experiences. Pluto likes to do things in the shadows, but the sun is all about illumination, so as they clash, coming to terms with the truth is a big theme.
Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter align on April 17, creating a dynamic energy around networking and sharing ideas. This is an especially exciting time for travel or education!

The sun meets Mercury on April 18, bringing important insight and perspective. New conversations, especially concerning relationships, take place.
Mercury and the sun enter Taurus on April 19, activating the sector of your chart that rules shared resources and making it a powerful time to discuss investments, work out issues concerning inheritances, and address things like debts and taxes.

Action planet Mars enters tenacious Cancer on April 23, igniting the sector of your chart that rules your career! This is a powerful time for you to be in the spotlight, as you might be claiming fantastic victories!

Think about what you’ve been sharing with other people lately, whether that means money, a home, or something else…how is that working out for you, and does the dynamic need to change?
Good luck this month, Libra, and see you in May!
