April 2008 comes in with a dreamy vibe, but soon bursts into flame from multiple fire signs. These steamy influences heat up romance, intimacy and communications. Adding to the fire is the New Moon in Aries on April 5, which brings in new energy for starting projects. Then the Full Moon in Scorpio on April 20 intensifies trysts between the sheets.
Relationships on fire
Venus in imaginative, sensitive Pisces from April 1-4 makes romance bloom for Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) and Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo Capricorn). This idealistic influence favors anything to do with fantasy, films, art and role-playing in the boudoir. It’s also a good time to discuss your relationship ideals. Meditating on the qualities you want in a partner will help manifest someone extra-special in your life. Or meditate on the one you’re with to manifest good qualities in your relationship.
Passion gets kicked up a notch when Venus transits through Aries from April 5-29, igniting Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius). Passionate trysts can have a dose of conflict to keep things interesting. Love is all about finding a balance between being a twosome and expressing your individuality. Aries says, It’s time to express yourself!
Communication turns lively
In the communications arena, talkative Mercury joins Venus’s transit through Aries (April 2-16), which intensifies dynamic talk, self-promotion and combativeness, especially for Fire and Air signs. Then Mercury transits through earthy, artistic Taurus (April 17-May 1), which favors discussions about art, finances and global warming. Communications will especially benefit Earth and Water signs. The last day of April finds Venus transiting into sensual Taurus, revving up romance for Earth and Water signs. It’s a great time for all earthly delights, such as enjoying nature, dining on scrumptious food and getting physical with your sweetie! Mars continues its transit through emotional Cancer, energizing (and sometimes aggravating) family discussions and other emotional interactions for just about everyone.
In the long-term, Pluto, the planet of transformation, turns retrograde on April 2 for five months. This influence encourages introspection at a deep level so you can eliminate blocks to fulfillment.
