Overview for this Month: Libra (All)

April 2014

April is a complicated month, dear Libra. Built-up anger and frustration tend to come to a head, especially around the Lunar Eclipse in your sign mid-month and the 20-23, when retrograde Mars in your sign forms a Grand Cross. Most importantly, this is a time to be especially careful and vigilant when it comes to health and general safety. There may be some resistance from a boss, co-worker, partner, or family member. People may be reacting to your sporadic assertiveness, and it's important for you to try to release frustrations in healthy ways. Be willing to implement needed changes in your life, both on the inside and out. Many issues are being forced to your attention so that you can finally deal with them. Partnerships can be especially challenging this month. Physical energy may be on the low side. The Lunar Eclipse in your sign on the 14th puts your emotions on your sleeve and can inspire important epiphanies. Pay attention to what you’re feeling now, even if your mood swings seem to come out of nowhere, and make necessary changes in your life. You can feel tugged in a number of directions, and as a result, you have little time to pursue to your own personal goals. It can be difficult to count on others or on circumstances, as changes seem to be thrust upon you. Avoid reacting too quickly, and instead listen to your heart. There may be difficulties with a family member or partner who is at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your career or public life. You are learning about giving freedom to others, and this isn't always easy. There is a strong connection between love and work this month, however, and if social opportunities through work present themselves (which is very possible), be sure to grab them. You could find yourself attracting (or attracted to) more creative or spiritual sorts of people. The 17-19 and 24-25 are especially strong for work and financial opportunities.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until April 20th:

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar seventh house--your partnership sector. This can be a time of much learning through the mirror of close relationships. It's not the time to push your agenda or personal plans forward; rather, it's a cycle in which you are at your best when you recognize the need to form alliances, to give back to a special someone, and to compromise in order to find some balance in your life. It's a strong period for putting yourself into another person's shoes and to better understand him/her. You may be meeting with someone strong and assertive by nature now, or a partner is more assertive and needy of attention. There may be some competitive feelings between you and a significant other now. Focus is on reconciliation, forming or cementing bonds, diplomacy, consultation, one-on-one interactions, and negotiations. You may feel a little drained physically now, temporarily.

From April 20th forward:

The Sun energizes your sector of transformation, change, sexuality, personal growth, regeneration, others' money and resources, addictions, and taxes. As a result, this is not the most gregarious of months for you. You take a step back, focus on intimacy with a partner, or simply retreat a little from the hectic pace of life. This is an excellent time to create a budget or financial plan, or to rid yourself of bad habits that undermine your sense of personal power and self-mastery. All that is deeply personal comes into focus now. Intimate matters are especially important to you during this cycle. Just how well you are handling your life comes up for inspection. Your self-mastery skills and psychological predisposition matter to you more than usual. This is the time of year when you are most desirous of change on a deep level. Clearing out psychic "junk" or ridding yourself of bad habits may be part of the picture now. You are more willing than usual to explore life's secrets. This cycle brings greater in-depth understanding and an inclination to delve beneath the surface of matters to get to the bottom of them. Research uncovers new material that allows you to develop a better overall picture of the year's events. This is an especially introspective cycle during which you have the chance to truly uncover your personal strengths and talents. On a more practical level, you may be dealing with joint finances and shared resources now more than usual.

Lunar Eclipse on April 15th

A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it's better to take in right now--to observe and get in touch with feelings.

The Lunar Eclipse stimulates your solar first house. Surprises surrounding your personal plans and your personal presence may be in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. Your sector of personal appearance, initiative, and "me first" energy is involved. This could manifest, for example, as a sudden assertion of independence (even a temper tantrum), a situation that tests your leadership skills, a culmination or fruition of an important partnership, and other such possibilities. Finding a balance between autonomy and dependence is what this Lunar Eclipse is about for you.

Solar Eclipse on April 29th

A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it's better to take in right now--to observe and get in touch with feelings.

The Solar Eclipse marks a new beginning for you. Letting go of the past is necessary in order to move forward. This eclipse occurs in your solar eighth house, suggesting a new approach to the way you share money and resources or get along with a close partner on an intimate level. New intimate liaisons or arrangements surrounding support from others (loans, joint finances, alimony, and so forth) may be formed in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to your ability to employ self-mastery skills. This is a phase when you will be especially busy initiating new projects or activities that increase your resources. You may experience increased awareness of others—what makes them tick—as well as your own internal motivations during this period. It is a time when intimacy and deep levels of sharing are heightened. It is also a favorable time to start a financial plan, savings plan, take out a loan or consolidate, and do work in accounting.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until April 5th:

Venus continues to transit your solar fifth house. Your popularity is on an upward trend during this cycle as others find you especially attractive and friendly. You may have the desire to dress well and in good taste. There is strength in your feelings of love and the power of attraction, which may open the door to new romantic relationships. Yet, you are not aggressive in your approach to love. Instead, you attract more if you allow yourself to be pursued during this cycle. Conditions are highlighted in connection with young people, and quite possibly a female child--a stronger bond could be formed during this period. You are feeling inspired creatively and romantically and you express your loving feelings quite openly now. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. You will also thoroughly enjoy artistic, musical, or cultural events and activities, especially in the company of a loved one. At this time, you instinctively know how to place yourself in the best light in order to make a good impression on others. Any love affair begun now will be characterized by good cheer, having fun, and a fair share of emotional drama!

From April 5th forward:

Venus graces your solar sixth house now. Establishing a happy and harmonious work environment through friendly relations with co-workers or tidying up your work area comes into focus now. Romantic and social activities may revolve around your working environment. You are generally well liked and respected socially on the job right now. Some laziness is possible now, as you tend to associate pleasure with work! Perhaps you are socializing more than usual on the job. You have good team spirit during this cycle, and you are more tactful and obliging with your co-workers. You are less inclined to fall in love for the sake of love itself during this cycle. Your tendency is to consider whether it is clever to do so! You're most successful doing tasks that involve cooperation and team harmony. You could find that your talents or skills are especially appreciated. Romantic and social activities may revolve around your working environment.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Until April 7th:

Mercury continues to transit your solar sixth house. This is an excellent cycle for improving your skills, objectively identifying your weaknesses so that you can work on them, and for finding flaws in your work methods or approach to daily activities so that you can make necessary changes. You might be especially focused on list-making and to-do lists, as well as organizing things around you. The need to communicate about your work, health, and other daily affairs, or with co-workers, is especially strong now. Negative expression of this position is worrying about sixth house matters (work, health, pets, and so forth) rather than finding ways to improve these things.

From April 7-23:

Mercury transits your solar seventh house. You tend to weigh the pros and cons of every issue during this cycle, taking into account others' needs as well as your own. Some indecisiveness is possible now, simply because you naturally entertain opposing viewpoints. You have a strong desire to cooperate and communicate with others now. You feel most comfortable spending time with people on a one-to-one level, or with those with whom you share a personal history. Your own thoughts become clearer through dialogue with others. You may be doing public relations work, counseling, negotiating, or arbitration during this cycle. There is a lot of emphasis on communications with partners and best friends at this time. You can use the power of words to advise others or to make peace with people in your life. You are more diplomatic than usual during this transit.

From April 23rd forward:

Mercury transits your solar eighth house. You are more intuitive now than usual, picking up all of the hidden cues from people around you and reading between the lines. This is an excellent cycle in which to do some financial planning and strategizing. Research is also highly favored. It's also easier for you to approach sensitive, intimate, and personal matters with rationality and logic. As such, this is a great time to open up conversations about topics that normally might cause waves, such as those revolving around the sharing of power, intimacy, and finances.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from March 1-May 19

All Mars retrograde cycles affect you in the areas of close partnering and negotiations because Mars rules these areas of your solar chart. Enthusiasm for a partnership or coming from a partner could be waning or not as clear. A partner could seem to be less direct or hard to reach. Partnering projects or initiatives, or negotiations, could stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in a one-to-one manner. Watch for pent-up anger and passive-aggressiveness in your partnerships, and learn from experiences with these things.

Occurring in your solar first house now, this Mars retrograde cycle is very up close and personal! The ways that your survival instincts have served you to date may not seem to be as effective, or you might be feeling cautious and withdrawn overall now. You might find that you are second-guessing yourself, and this is a natural process as you reassess how you have been going about meeting life and reacting/acting. It's a good time for refining these things. Your personal initiatives and confidence are affected. Perhaps you are not as confident about your personal effectiveness and more cautious about sharing yourself with others. Personal initiatives might need to be put on the back burner, or you could show less enthusiasm for them. You could be a little tired and more accident-prone, so be sure to rest up. You are also examining the way anger has helped or impaired your life, and coming up with new ways to manage it. In the process, you can experience some real frustrations. The end result, ideally, is a much-improved you. It's time to rethink, revise, and reorganize your plans. Backtracking is a good idea now. How you assert yourself and how you go about going after what you want out of life are up for review now. Watch for unacknowledged or buried desires driving your behavior.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month:

The Sun illuminates your seventh house. At this time of year, you have a greater need than usual to be with a partner. Bouncing ideas off someone helps you to better understand yourself. A partner provides a mirror for your own self-discovery. Now is the time to realize your own potential through a significant other. During this cycle, you focus on balancing your personal interests and objectives with your social life, or with those of a partner. The emphasis is on "us" rather than "me". You need the energies, companionship, and support of other people, and they may also seek out your support and companionship. It's important to include others rather than to go solo for the time being. However, bending too much to the will of another is not advised either. Social interactions of a personal, one-on-one kind are emphasized. Circumstances are such that your diplomacy skills are required. Your popularity is increasing, and is reinforced by your own ability to cooperate and harmonize. Your ego and pride are tied up in how you relate to others now. This may be an especially busy time for people who consult or work with clients one-on-one.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until April 9th:

The Sun puts a spotlight on your solar sixth house. This is a busy period that finds you tending to many different details of your daily existence--your work, various projects, organization around the home and office, your daily routines, and health matters. Your ego may be especially tied up in the work you do, so that you are proud and more creative than usual in your job. You may be in the position to take charge in your work, or to take charge of your health and diet. Sometimes this cycle relates to increased activities involving pets. You seek to perfect your skills or methods now, and you focus on the parts that make up the whole now in order to improve your daily life. As a result, you can be more critical than usual, but this process is necessary for you to sort out what works for you and what doesn't.

From April 9th forward:

The Sun illuminates your seventh house. At this time of year, you have a greater need than usual to be with a partner. Bouncing ideas off someone helps you to better understand yourself.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

From April 1-18:

Mercury transits your solar sixth house. This is a good placement for Mercury, as it is the natural ruler of the sixth house. It's an excellent period for sorting out the details of your daily existence. You are inclined to make to-do lists, pay bills and sort out clutter, and to do detail work on the job. Health matters are most certainly on your brain as well, and you could be thinking of scheduling check-ups or busy researching ways to improve your health. You may also show a keener interest in improving your basic skills. Your approach to work during this cycle is pleasant, happy, and logical for the most part, unless you allow worry or scattered energy to enter the picture. You are inclined to want to learn new work skills, or to improve your skills and output in terms of work. There is likely to be more activity, movement, contact, and communications with co-workers now. You tend to take more interest in organizing your working environment--and this is an excellent time to do so, as you are especially objective and intelligent when it comes to getting a handle on your daily affairs and all of the "little things" that contribute to a feeling of efficiency and competency. Menial tasks become more prominent. Watch, however, for tension or idle chit-chat interfering with your work output during this cycle.

From April 18th forward:

Mercury transits your solar seventh house. You tend to weigh the pros and cons of every issue during this cycle, taking into account others' needs as well as your own. Some indecisiveness is possible now, simply because you naturally entertain opposing viewpoints. You have a strong desire to cooperate and communicate with others now. You feel most comfortable spending time with people on a one-to-one level, or with those with whom you share a personal history. Your own thoughts become clearer through dialogue with others. You may be doing public relations work, counseling, negotiating, or arbitration during this cycle. There is a lot of emphasis on communications with partners and best friends at this time. You can use the power of words to advise others or to make peace with people in your life. You are more diplomatic than usual during this transit.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from March 1-May 19

All Mars retrograde cycles affect you in the areas of close partnering and negotiations because Mars rules these areas of your solar chart. Enthusiasm for a partnership or coming from a partner could be waning or not as clear. A partner could seem to be less direct or hard to reach. Partnering projects or initiatives, or negotiations, could stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in a one-to-one manner. Watch for pent-up anger and passive-aggressiveness in your partnerships, and learn from experiences with these things.

Occurring in your solar first house now, this Mars retrograde cycle is very up close and personal! The ways that your survival instincts have served you to date may not seem to be as effective, or you might be feeling cautious and withdrawn overall now. You might find that you are second-guessing yourself, and this is a natural process as you reassess how you have been going about meeting life and reacting/acting. It's a good time for refining these things. Your personal initiatives and confidence are affected. Perhaps you are not as confident about your personal effectiveness and more cautious about sharing yourself with others. Personal initiatives might need to be put on the back burner, or you could show less enthusiasm for them. You could be a little tired and more accident-prone, so be sure to rest up. You are also examining the way anger has helped or impaired your life, and coming up with new ways to manage it. In the process, you can experience some real frustrations. The end result, ideally, is a much-improved you. It's time to rethink, revise, and reorganize your plans. Backtracking is a good idea now. How you assert yourself and how you go about going after what you want out of life are up for review now. Watch for unacknowledged or buried desires driving your behavior.

Overview Horoscope:

April is a complicated month, dear Libra. Built-up anger and frustration tend to come to a head, especially around the Lunar Eclipse in your sign mid-month and the 20-23, when retrograde Mars in your sign forms a Grand Cross. Most importantly, this is a time to be especially careful and vigilant when it comes to health and general safety. There may be some resistance from a boss, co-worker, partner, or family member. People may be reacting to your sporadic assertiveness, and it's important for you to try to release frustrations in healthy ways. Be willing to implement needed changes in your life, both on the inside and out. Many issues are being forced to your attention so that you can finally deal with them. Partnerships can be especially challenging this month. Physical energy may be on the low side. The Lunar Eclipse in your sign on the 14th puts your emotions on your sleeve and can inspire important epiphanies. Pay attention to what you’re feeling now, even if your mood swings seem to come out of nowhere, and make necessary changes in your life. You can feel tugged in a number of directions, and as a result, you have little time to pursue to your own personal goals. It can be difficult to count on others or on circumstances, as changes seem to be thrust upon you. Avoid reacting too quickly, and instead listen to your heart. There may be difficulties with a family member or partner who is at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your career or public life. You are learning about giving freedom to others, and this isn't always easy. There is a strong connection between love and work this month, however, and if social opportunities through work present themselves (which is very possible), be sure to grab them. You could find yourself attracting (or attracted to) more creative or spiritual sorts of people. The 17-19 and 24-25 are especially strong for work and financial opportunities.
