Monthly Love Horoscopes - April 2019
It is rare that you get a second shot at a Full Moon and even rarer when the second time around, you're a lot more ready, wiser and supported. It was last month that the Full Moon that falls in your relationship sector at some point during your birthday month, fell just hours after the Sun's return. This was so early that the Moon has time to come full circle before your birthday month is over, creating a second Full Moon on 19th April. This is the first time this has happened in 57 years and is a rare opportunity for a do over. This time around you have what you didn't the first time, which is Mars in your communication sector. Mars only returned on 31st March, with 1st April his first full day and with this a chance to draw a real line in the sand. However, Mars doesn't have a cold start with the asteroid Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships already here. Juno will stay on until 21st April, leaving a day after the Moon leaves your relationship sector, wrapping up the Full Moon on 19th April. Where last month's Full Moon fell just minutes after the Moon's return to your relationship sector, this time it will fall in its final minutes. Returning to your relationship sector on 17th April, this gives you two days to prepare for what this might bring to a head, as well as the kind of communication support that can push through barriers. There is something about this second Full Moon in your relationship sector that explains Venus, the planet of love's late return to Aries. While the reason Venus is late is that she was held back by a retrograde phase last year, by not returning to Aries until 21st April, she manages to avoid the Moon by just 24 hours. Venus will spend the first three weeks of April in a nostalgic part of your chart, where she will take your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane before returning to Aries.
With no planetary activity in your romantic or relationship sectors this month, the focus is both on the Moon's monthly visits to each and also on what Venus, the planet of love is up to. Venus will spend the first three weeks of the month in a social and serendipitous part of your chart, where she will bring the laws of attraction and synchronicity into play. It is while Venus is here that the potential for serendipitous moments and/or encounters increases, with following your heart having the power to put you in the right place at the right time. This will be especially so when the Moon moves through from 2nd April to 4th April, making clues and signs easier to read. It is on 21st April that Venus will return to a nostalgic part of your chart when in preparation for her return to Taurus next month, she will take your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane. In the meantime, with no planetary activity on the romantic or relationship fronts, the Moon's monthly visits become a lot more important. The Moon will move through your romantic sector from 15th April to 17th April, with romantically charged lunar vibes during Venus' final days in a social and serendipitous part of your chart giving you both the encouragement and the push to take some blind leaps of faith. The Moon will move through your relationship sector from 20th April to 22nd April and the timing couldn't be better. The Moon will be here when the asteroid Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships returns to your communication sector on 21st April. While not a planet, Juno is the first actual support the North Node has had since returning in November and with Mars returning next month, this is when communication forces start waking up. The Moon's return to your relationship sector at that moment will create an unexpected opportunity to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice.
Starting the month with Mars in Gemini will be an exciting and unexpected experience, making this month feel very different from the get go. Because Mars only returned on 31st March and 1st April is his first full day, there is a clear line in the sand between the year until now and the new month you are moving into. This will not only have an impact on you personally, but will have a big impact on both romantic and relationship matters, though for different and for equally exciting reasons. Even though this will appear to favour romantic matters, this is something your relationships will benefit from as well. For this will put Mars at a friendly aspect to the asteroid Pallas, who has been keeping the romantic flame burning since a Full Moon in your romantic sector last month and until a second Full Moon on 19th April. This Full Moon is an opportunity for a do over, this time with Mars on hand, fuelling your romantic confidence, passions and fighting spirit. At the same time, for the first time since 2007, Mars has returned to find Jupiter, in opposition in your relationship sector. While they won't move into opposition until early next month, Mars has returned to police a balance between your personal and relationship needs. With Ceres turning retrograde in your relationship sector on 9th April and Jupiter on 11th April, this is the point where relationship matters move into review mode, with Mars' opposition unlikely to get as much push back. This is ultimately a clash between your personal and relationship needs, but taking so long to build, you will be aware of and have time to work with any tensions. The Moon's visit to your communication sector from 13th April to 15th April will be a valuable chance to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice, in a month when there is no other communication support.
In a year where there is planetary activity in your relationship sector throughout the year, but only activity on the romantic front in the early and later months, it is a given that the focus is on your relationships this month. However, there is a sea change, with relationship matters starting to take a back seat and in a year when your personal and relationship needs are being policed, a rise in focus on your own needs. Since Pluto's return to your relationship sector in 2008, this has been the point in every year when relationship matters slow down and due to a retrograde turn, take a back seat. This month both Pluto and Saturn turn retrograde, however not until later in the month. It begins with Pluto's retrograde turn on 25th April and continues with Saturn's retrograde turn on 30th April. With the South Node, in your relationship sector from November 2017 to May 2020 always in retrograde motion, this will shift a lot of the focus onto the past. While it is Mars' return to Cancer next month that will both shore up your personal support in a year when a balance between your personal and relationship needs is being policed, a shift begins this month. It begins with the asteroid Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships' return to Cancer on 21st April, just days before Pluto and Saturn are due to turn retrograde. Juno's focus is always on authentic and committed relationships, but looking at your relationships from within Cancer and therefore from your perspective, will make balancing your personal and relationship needs a lot easier. In the meantime having Venus, the planet of love in an adventurous part of your chart until 21st April will offer some light relief, bringing the spirit of romance and adventure together. With the Moon in your romantic sector from 20th April to 22nd April, romantically charged lunar vibes will provide a soft exit.
It was late last month that Venus, the planet of love not only left your relationship sector but wrapped up all planetary activity here for the year. However, with Mars and the South Node having wrapped up extraordinary visits in November and the Sun and Mercury having both moved through in January and February, Venus has left you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. As you transition to taking responsibility for your relationships, the Moon is here to help out during two visits this month. The month begins with the Moon in your relationship sector and here until 2nd April, just days after Venus left, this is a chance to tie up loose ends. By the time the Moon comes full circle, moving through your relationship sector again from 26th April to 29th April, Venus will have been gone for nearly a month, with a valuable chance to check in. Apart from the focus on your relationships in the first two days of the month and again later in the month, this month is instead focused on romantic matters, with something special developing. Both Ceres and Jupiter, the planets that will remain in your romantic sector for the majority of 2019, will turn retrograde this month. Ceres will turn retrograde on 9th April and Jupiter just two days later on 11th April, opening the doors to the past and to a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane. The Moon will make its monthly visit to your romantic sector from 22nd April to 24th April and returning just 11 days after Jupiter's retrograde turn, these romantically charged lunar vibes will come with a strong sense of romantic nostalgia. This is something that Venus, the planet of love will tap into when she returns to an adventurous part of your chart on 21st April. With the Moon returning to your romantic sector during her first full day, from out of nowhere a potent mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia will take hold and will stay in effect for the rest of this month and into May.
Even though the Sun left your relationship sector last month, as is always the case each year, there is not only still a lot of planetary activity here, but some of the best of the year. Held back by a retrograde phase in 2018, Venus was late returning to your relationship sector this year and only returned late last month, after the Sun had been and gone. Venus returned during Mercury's final days in retrograde motion, with the planets of love and communication already working as a team. Mercury is back in direct motion as you move into April, but just days after his retrograde phase ended is still gaining momentum. Mercury will remain in your relationship sector until 17th April, working until then to give your relationships a voice. Venus, the planet of love is here until 21st April and will be working until then, to bring the magic back into your relationships. And she is not on her own, aligning with dreamy Neptune on 10th/11th April to create something special. Mercury will align with Neptune on 2nd/4th April, for the third time since returning in February. With Chiron, the planet of healing gone, this is a chance to create new dreams for the future. Meanwhile, while Mercury is now back in direct motion, both Saturn and Pluto will turn retrograde in your romantic sector this month. Pluto will turn retrograde on 25th April and Saturn on 30th April, so not until the end of the month, but will spend the majority of the month slowing down and will be at a standstill by the time they turn retrograde. This is when all the romantic focus will shift to the past and remain there during the middle months of 2019. The Moon will move through your romantic sector from 25th April to 26th April, with romantically charged lunar vibes in play as Pluto turns retrograde on 25th April.
At some point during the Sun's month long visit to your relationship sector he will be confronted by a Full Moon in Libra and while this will see your personal and relationship needs clash, this is vital for getting to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. That Full Moon fell just hours after the Sun's return last month, which should mean this is over and done with and is now out of the way. However, for the first time in 57 years, there will be a second Full Moon in Libra, this time in the Sun's final days in your relationship sector. With the Sun's month long visit your relationship sector being bookended by a pair of Full Moons, this creates an opportunity for a do over. It was immediately after last month's Full Moon that the Sun went into an alignment with Chiron, the planet of healing, for the first time in your relationship sector in 43 years. This was a chance to run anything the Full Moon triggered through the healing process. There is something different about this second Full Moon on 19th April, apart from an opportunity for a do over. Last month's Full Moon had the support of Ceres and Jupiter in your communication sector and while it is the same for this second Full Moon, they will both be in retrograde motion by then. Ceres turns retrograde in your communication sector on 9th April and Jupiter two days later on 11th April. As your personal and relationship needs clash during the Full Moon on 19th April, an opportunity for a breakthrough comes with a chance to give your emotional responses, relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. Meanwhile, while Venus left your romantic sector late last month, with romantically charged lunar vibes in effect until 2nd April and then again from 26th April to 29th April, it won't take much to keep the romantic spirit alive. Especially with support from Mars, who is spending the whole of April in an adventurous part of your chart.
April is often an important month for romantic matters and always for relationship matters, but this year you have both. The Sun always leaves your romantic sector on the equinox and returns to your relationship sector a month later, which is why the solar spotlight will move onto your relationships from 20th April. However, special circumstances on both fronts will have something special in play from the get go. While the Sun did leave your romantic sector last month, he left behind Mercury in retrograde motion and Venus, the planet of love yet to return. Venus finally returned late last month, just two days before Mercury turned direct. With Mercury in your romantic sector until 17th April, Venus until 21st April and dreamy Neptune here for the long haul, the first three weeks of the month are the breeding ground for romantic matters and developments for the rest of the year. In the meantime, while Mars' left your relationship sector on 31st March, he left behind Uranus, who is here now for the next seven years. Until the Sun returns on 21st April, this is a chance for Uranus to take the wheel and keep the wheels turning on the relationship front, but in a way where it is more about the big picture. When Uranus returned for a few months last year during the Sun's final days in your relationship sector, they were too far apart to interact. Uranus was only here for a few months and returned early last month, ready now to begin the real journey. When the Sun returns on 21st April Uranus will still be in the early degrees, with their alignment on 23rd April their first here in eight decades. This is when the solar spotlight will not only shine on your relationships but on the massive new relationship journey that has already begun. With Venus and Mercury not returning until next month, this allows them to keep the focus on matters of the heart, while the Sun and Uranus keep the focus on your relationships.
The solar spotlight is always on matters of the heart and all things romantic at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of April in your romantic sector. However, with the Sun not returning to your relationship sector until later next month, what is not the norm is to also have planetary activity in your relationship sector. It was Mars' return to your relationship sector on 31st March that has literally changed the dynamics on the relationship front overnight, waking up on 1st April to something very different from last month. However, Mars is not on his own, returning to find that the asteroid Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships has been here since February. By the time Mars returned in the final hours of March, you already had a good sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This is giving the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos something to fight for from the get go. Fortunately, you also start the month with the Moon in your communication sector and as Venus, the planet of love only left there days earlier, a chance to begin the month with the communication lines open from the get go. With no planetary activity on the communication front, this makes it important to work with the Moon, until leaving on 2nd April. In the meantime, the Sun has returned to your romantic sector to find some big changes since last year. For the first time in nine years Uranus is gone, with the volatility and unpredictability of the past not only replaced by a new sense of confidence and stability, but a healing quality. For the first time in four decades, the Sun has returned to find Chiron, the planet of healing in your romantic sector, where he will stay now until 2027. By the time Mercury returns to your romantic sector on 17th April and Venus, the planet of love on 21st April, matters of the heart will already have had a head start.
Whenever you have a good month for both romantic and relationship matters, there is the added bonus of natural support between the two, with both sides getting an additional boost thanks to the support from the other. While the Sun won't return to your romantic sector until 20th April, as he does at this time every year in order to turn the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart and all things romantic, there is already some real momentum. It was last month that Uranus returned to your romantic sector, with the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected here now until 2026. However, Uranus was not alone, having returned to find Mars here. Mars, who returned to your romantic sector in mid February, only left on 31st March, literally just a few hours before you moved into April. On 1st April Mars might be gone, but he has left you with your romantic passions and fighting spirit fuelled and with Uranus to keep the romantic flame burning. While Uranus returned during the Sun's final days last year for a short exploratory visit, they were too far apart to interact. It is a different story this time. Returning just three weeks after Mars left, the Sun will almost immediately align with Uranus, for the first time here in eight decades, on 23rd April. Meanwhile, just a day before the Sun's return to your romantic sector the asteroid Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships will make a timely return to your relationship sector on 21st April. Timely because, while Venus leaves your communication sector on 21st April, there will be a nearly 20 hour overlap. With Mars returning to your relationship sector next month and the North Node gaining its first direct support since returning in November, this is the start of something special. Fortunately, the Moon will return to your communication sector on 29th April, where it will see out the month.
Because the Sun returns to your romantic sector on or around 20th May each year, April is not a month when you can expect too much in the way of romantic activity. Yes, you will have the Moon always making its monthly visit and occasionally you might have Venus or Mercury return to your romantic sector in April, though if they do it will be towards the end of the month. Imagine your surprise then, when you move into the new month with not just a bit of romantic influence, but a massive amount. Surprise because even in the final hours of March this wasn't your reality. It was during the final hours of March that Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos managed to get in just before the door closed and is still in his early hours here on 1st April. Because Mars is already here as you move into April but only just, he is able to get your attention from the get go, jumping out and shouting 'surprise'. Because Mars is here for nearly seven weeks and won't leave until 16th May, he will spend the whole of April firing up your romantic passions and fighting spirit. With the Sun and Mercury returning next month, before Mars leaves and then Venus in June, this is the start of a romantic wave that will continue through to July. What Mars began in the final hours of March Venus, the planet of love will bring home in the early days of July, brings you the start of something special. This is Mars' first visit to your romantic sector since 2017 and with so much focus on your relationships over the last few months and even more so last year, now that romantic matters get their turn the love gods will grab this with both hands and run for it. The Moon will move through your romantic sector from 9th April to 11th April and as the first visit since Mars' return, these romantically charged lunar vibes will add fuel to his romantic passions and fighting spirit.
Everything about Venus, the planet of love's return to Pisces this year is perfect, from her late return to what she is encountering during the first three weeks of April. Held back by a retrograde phase, for the first time in five years, your birthday month ended before Venus had even returned to Pisces. With your birthday month over, Venus' return last month is not only giving your heart the last word but means her romantic agenda isn't caught up in the more mundane aspect of getting a new solar year off the ground. While Mercury is in Pisces until 17th April this is an advantage because this is a chance to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. This is not the only advantage Venus found when she returned on 27th March, with even more before she leaves on 21st April. Venus returned to find Chiron, the planet of healing gone. Here since 2010, Venus' return to Pisces no longer requires dredging up the past, with the old ghosts that may have haunted you in the past gone. Even more exciting was the fact that for the first time in 17 years, Venus returned to find the North Node in your romantic sector, the force behind a total solar eclipse here in July. While Mars won't return to your romantic sector until next month, in order to begin the build up to that total solar eclipse, the asteroid Juno, queen of commitment will return on 21st April. Juno returns on the same day that Venus leaves Pisces and while she will leave first, they miss each other by just 28 minutes. Just as Venus wraps up a mission to cement your romantic desires and expectations for the coming year, Juno returns with a chance to commit to them. While the total solar eclipse in your romantic sector isn't until early July, this is the point where preparation really begins.
