Libra - April 2020
Hey Libra! April is a poignant month for those born under the sign of the Scales, as an emotional full Moon on the 8th illuminates your sign! Full Moons shine an unforgiving spotlight on whichever area of your life they frequent, and this can be a double-edged sword, inasmuch whilst they light the way and make your path much clearer, in this process they also highlight all those dark corners of your private life and personality that you are trying to forget about! This is probably a favourable time then to take a long, hard look at your lifestyle and ambitions, and deal with any issues you have been sweeping under the proverbial carpet. Think about where that one true happiness lies for you and pursue it, and you will probably find that everything else falls into place. You could also feel during the early days of the month that you are overloaded with others’ needs and demands, and as this lunar event approaches, it will be necessary to take some down time to recharge.
Relationships continue to be in focus this month, as speedy Mercury zips through your house of partnerships from the 11th to 27th. Lots of communicative energy supports you here, and it’s a wonderful time to share opinions and desires with your loved one. Mercury’s sociable sextile with Venus between the 13th and 23rd is fabulous for planning a trip or vacation with your partner as the Easter period comes to an end; you could find a new destination together which will become a favourite for you both. Love is also likely now during travel to a different country. Emotional days are signified during the 14th to 20th as Mercury conjuncts both Chiron and Lilith; there is a good deal of healing around here through discussion and self-expression, but a strong need for independence will colour all your interactions. Take care not to make any rash relationship decisions under these influences.
Saturn moved into a new sign in March, and for the next two years will turn attention to your creativity, social life and leisure time. This part of your solar chart deals with being yourself and expressing spontaneity and joy, and unfortunately joy isn’t really Saturn’s strongest suit! Don’t be surprised if as the Spring passes, you start to lose a little interest or enjoyment in hobbies, or find it harder to express your artistic, creative drive. What Saturn will do for you at least, is to encourage you to hone in any excessive spending or socialising which is, perhaps, preventing you from living your best life. He also adds practicality to plans and will take those marvellous ideas and turn them into something tangible and achievable. A challenging square between Saturn and Uranus takes hold in April and will persist for the remainder of 2020. This connection pushes you to work on your spiritual self through some deep emotional healing. The new Moon on the 23rd is a good place to start, as your world becomes alive with psychic activity.
Last but never least this month, prepare for the Sun’s presence in your house of debts after the 20th. Whether you like it or not, he will guide you into situations where you are forced to assert yourself around financial issues, to ensure you get the best deal and are not short-changed in any way. His conjunction with unpredictable Uranus during these last ten days of the month could create unexpected bills or money problems, but you will feel confident about dealing with these issues in a practical, logical fashion. Have a wonderful April!
