Welcome to April, Virgo! You are known for your intelligence, but it can be hard to calm down your busy mind. Last month asked you to unwind and usher in relaxation. On Saturday, April 3, messenger Mercury planet enters confident Aries and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Communication. Even when you’re trying to lay low, productivity is important to you, both in your personal and professional life. You aren’t afraid to point out flaws and, though you may just be trying to help, sometimes others think you’re being overly critical. This transit asks you to reevaluate your communication tactics, and not be afraid to try a more compassionate approach.
On the new moon in Aries on Sunday, April 11, try out a way of getting your message across with a crush or lover by simply giving them a compliment. Don’t sugarcoat things; honesty is too important to you. Tell them how you’re feeling, including exactly why you appreciate them. The 8th House also rules sex, so intimacy may also be in the cards for you.
Lover planet Venus enters sensual Taurus and your 9th House of Philosophy on Wednesday, April 14. It’s still important to tell your loved ones how much you appreciate them, but you also have to take care of yourself, Virgo. This transit appeals to your intellectual nature and encourages you to explore the manner in which you love. It’s also an ideal time to explore your sexual orientation, gender, or relationship format, if you’ve been curious about those things.
When the weather gets warmer and luxurious Taurus season begins on Monday, April 19, you feel encouraged to get outside and socialize (while following pandemic safety protocols, of course). On this same date, your ruling planet, communicator Mercury, enters Taurus and your 9th House of Philosophy. This transit is another opportunity to tell your dates, crushes, or partner exactly how you’re feeling. If you want to try something new, now is a lucky time to do so.
On Friday, April 23, fighter planet Mars enters emotional Cancer and your 11th House of Friends. Because of the COVID-19 vaccine and warmer weather, more people will be able to get together safely. Who knows, you may even be able to do something like see your best friend for the first time in a year. You are warriors for surviving this, and it’s OK to show your feelings. Crying with friends during a picnic in the park is a perfect way to spend Taurus season.
A full moon in Scorpio on Monday, April 26 lights up your 3rd House of Communication. This is a great time to communicate your sexual needs to a partner, or to masturbate to a fantasy. Relax and enjoy it; it is sensual Taurus season, after all. The next day, on Tuesday, April 27, Pluto, the planet of transformation, begins its yearly retrograde. During this time, you’ll find yourself continuing the work you started earlier this month of identifying previously ignored desires and bringing them to life. Have fun, and see you in May!
