Love Monthly for Month Commencing: Thursday 01 April 2021

   Aries Thursday 01 April 2021  Mar 21 - Apr 19
Venus, the planet of love will spend the first half of the month in Aries, giving you full access to her romantic influence until she leaves on 15th April. Venus returned to Aries in the first 48 hours of your birthday month and spent her first week in your sign aligned with the Sun. This has given your heart a voice from the start and until she leaves, there is a chance to move into your birthday month and new solar year with your romantic and relationship desires and expectations banked. The Moon returned to both your romantic and relationship sectors during Venus’ early days in Aries, so won’t return again until after she leaves. The first will be a chance to revisit your romantic desires and expectations and the spirit of romance in general, when the Moon returns to your romantic sector from 20th April to 22nd April. Returning five days after Venus left and having come full circle from a visit during the planet of love’s early days in Aries, these will be some of the most important days of the month for matters of the heart. The Moon will make its monthly visit to your relationship sector from 25th April to 27th April, something that will be important for several reasons. The first is a chance to revisit the relationship desires and expectations Venus left you with when she left Aries 10 days earlier and to become more emotionally engaged. Another reason why the timing of this visit is significant is that the Moon will return to fuel your emotional responses on the relationship front just two days after Mars wraps up a seven week visit to your communication sector on 23rd April. While the Moon will leave after Mars is gone, it comes after the warrior planet of the cosmos has declared war on communication barriers and has done all he can to ensure the communication lines are open. It also comes when there is backup, for while Mars will leave your communication sector on 23rd April Mercury, the planet of communication will return to Aries on 19th April and will be here when the Moon moves through your relationship sector.
 
   Taurus Thursday 01 April 2021  Apr 20 - May 20
As far as your heart is concerned this is a month of two halves, with the first half more focused on the past. The month begins with Venus, the planet of love in a nostalgic part of your chart and until leaving and returning to Taurus on 15th April, she is taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane. When Venus returns to Taurus there will be a chance for new beginnings, to look to the future and returning five days before your birthday month and new solar year begins, to begin updating your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year. Until then, there is a chance to dance with some old ghosts and lay some others to rest. However, this is not the only reason why this is a month of two halves, for it is in the second half of the month that there is a lot of action on the communication and relationship fronts. The month will begin with the Moon in your relationship sector but leaving on 1st April, this is more the tail end of a visit last month brushing the early hours of this month. However, it is important to pay attention, especially to your emotional responses for when the Moon returns on 27th April it will be as a Full Moon. A week into your birthday month, the Moon’s clash with the Sun on 27th April will put a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test though it won’t leave until 29th April. Not only will Venus be in Taurus by then and on hand to use this as a chance to get a better read on what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, there will be unexpected communication support. Mars’ return to your communication sector on 23rd April will put him in the right place at the right time, two months before you would normally expect planetary activity on the communication front. This creates the potential for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough. Meanwhile, the Moon’s return to your romantic sector from 23rd April to 25th April, in Venus’ early days in Taurus, could be some of the most romantically charged of the month.
 
   Gemini Thursday 01 April 2021  May 21 - Jun 21
When you have Venus, the planet of love moves from one area of your chart on 15th April and especially in a 30 day month, by every definition, this will be a month of two halves when it comes to matters of the heart. For you, the contrast between the two halves is quite marked, for they take your heart in two very different directions. Venus will start the month in a social and serendipitous part of your chart, where she is encouraging you to put yourself out there. Here, Venus can bring the laws of attraction and synchronicity together, creating the potential for serendipitous moments and/or encounters. This will also put Venus at a friendly aspect to Juno and the South Node in your relationship sector, creating support for friendship and relationship building. The Moon will move through your relationship sector from 1st April to 3rd April, forming a friendly aspect to both the Sun and Venus as it moves through. This will make the early days of the month some of the best for friendship and relationship building. Venus is also here when the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships turns retrograde in your relationship sector on 12th April, there as support as the doors open to the past and second chances. While support for friendship and relationship building will continue all month, Venus’ return to a nostalgic part of your chart on 15th April is what makes this a month of two halves. This is Venus’ last stop before returning to Gemini next month but before she does, she will spend the next 24 days taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane. It is 10 days into this nostalgic chapter that the Moon will move through your romantic sector from 25th April to 27th April. Romantically charged lunar vibes will fuse with Venus to create an upswing in romantic nostalgia and some of the most romantically charged days of the month.
 
   Cancer Thursday 01 April 2021  Jun 22 - Jul 22
While this isn’t a major month for either romantic or relationship matters, each has something special to offer that should make this a good month for both, though for different reasons. There is no planetary activity in your romantic sector and won’t be until later in the year, so starting the month with the Moon in your romantic sector is an advantage. The Moon might leave on 1st April but as it will not only return on 27th April but as a Full Moon, this will be a taste of things to come. This makes it important to pay attention to and hold onto the influence of the romantically charged lunar vibes that will be present in the early hours of the month. Unlike your romantic sector, there is continuous planetary activity in your relationship sector with Pluto, the planet of change and revolution here since 2008 and not leaving until 2024. However, after Saturn and Jupiter left in December and after the Sun, Venus and Mercury moved through in the early months of the year, things have quietened down here. So much so that on 28th April Pluto will turn retrograde and until turning direct in October, will be more focused on the past. This is something that happens at this time every year. However, the difference this time is that Mars will return to Cancer on 23rd April. Last month began with Mars and Pluto at a friendly aspect, working together to support friendship and relationship building but they will end this month on opposite sides of the sky. While they won’t clash until next month, this sets the scene for the planets of war and revolution to go head to head in a battle to ensure you have the right balance between your personal and relationship needs. This makes the Moon’s visit to your communication sector from 23rd April to 25th April a chance to ensure the communication lines are open from the start. Meanwhile, the Moon’s return to your romantic sector on 27th April as a Full Moon will draw in support from Mars, adding a mix of passion to this romantically charged Lovers Moon.
 
   Leo Thursday 01 April 2021  Jul 23 - Aug 22
Starting the month with Venus, the planet of love in an adventurous part of your chart will have several implications, all of them positive. Here Venus will always work to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together but she has additional help this year. That support comes from having the asteroid Juno and the South Node in your romantic sector. Venus will form a friendly aspect to both before she leaves on 15th April but it is in her final days that a sense of romance, adventure and nostalgia is set to deepen. The South Node is always focused on the past so there has been a subtle sense of romantic nostalgia all year. However, that will deepen when Juno turns retrograde on 12th April. The Moon will also make two visits to your romantic sector this month and in time tapping into the spirit of adventure. However, it is the first visit, from 1st April to 3rd April that will form a friendly aspect to Venus, amplifying and adding fuel to the spirit of romance and adventure. By the time the Moon comes full circle on 29th April Venus will be gone but there will still be planetary activity on the adventurous front to keep the spirit of romance and adventure alive. Meanwhile, this is also an important month on the relationship front, where things have become more settled and stable. While Jupiter and Saturn both returned to your relationship sector in December, the last of the faster planets to move through only left last month. However, this is not only Jupiter and Saturn’s first full month on their own and with the focus on the big picture but their last full month together for now, with Jupiter leaving next month. The Moon’s visit to your relationship sector from 6th April to 8th April will be a valuable chance to check in, especially with what your emotional responses are telling you.
 
   Virgo Thursday 01 April 2021  Aug 23 - Sep 22
There are some important developments on the romantic and relationship fronts this month that deviate from the norm and can therefore guard against complacency. For when you have Neptune in your relationship sector from 2012 to 2026 and Pluto in your romantic sector from 2008 to 2004, there is always that danger. Pluto has been on his own in your romantic sector since Venus left in March and until she returns in November, will keep matters of the heart on track. At the same time, after the Sun and Venus left your relationship sector last month Neptune should be back on his own and it should be business as usual again there as well. However, for both Pluto and Neptune and therefore romantic and relationship matters, that is not their fate this month. The month begins with Mercury, the planet of communication still in your relationship sector and until leaving on 4th April he will be working hard to ensure the communication lines are open. Mercury is the last of the faster planets to move through and once he leaves it will then become more about the journey. However, the Moon’s return from 8th April to 10th April will not only be a chance to check in but to review recent months. A chance to reflect on the Sun, Venus and Mercury’s recent transit through your relationship sector will be a chance to tie up loose ends, especially when it comes to knowing what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. Meanwhile, while apart from the Moon’s visit to your romantic sector from 1st May to 3rd May things are fairly quiet on the romantic front that will change fairly dramatically in the second half of the month. This is thanks to Venus, the planet of love’s return to an adventurous part of your chart on 15th April, where along with support from Pluto in your romantic sector, she will bring the spirit of romance and adventure together. Venus will be here when Pluto turns retrograde on 28th April, ending the month under a mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia.
 
   Libra Thursday 01 April 2021  Sep 23 - Oct 23
The spotlight is always on your relationships at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of April in your relationship sector. The Sun is rarely on his own so while the solar spotlight will be on your relationships until he leaves on 20th April, there are other factors in play that make the whole of April a rich and vibrant month on the relationship front. The month not only begins with the Sun in your relationship sector but Venus, the planet of love along with the dwarf planet Ceres, who returned in February to begin a deep dive into your relationship needs and priorities. With the Sun here to bring reality checks and to establish an authentic starting point but Venus here to update your relationship desires and expectations and Ceres’ in the last full month of her mission to update your relationship needs and priorities, this will be a defining month on the relationship front. Especially when it comes to getting to the heart of what’s possible. A pivotal point in the month is when the Moon moves through your relationship sector from 10th April to 13th April. As well as a chance to become more emotionally engaged, the Moon will align with the Sun to create a New Moon on 12th April. This creates an opportunity for new beginnings or to draw a new line in the sand. While Venus will leave your relationship sector on 15th April, before the Sun leaves he will be joined by Mercury, with the planet of communication returning on 19th April. This is a day before the Sun leaves, with the focus shifting in the final 10 days of the month to having the communication lines open. Meanwhile, Jupiter and Saturn are not only spending their first full month on their own in your romantic sector after Mercury’s departure last month but their last together until the second half of the year. Due to leave next month but then return in late July, Jupiter will be working to make this a lucky month for love, matters of the heart and all things romantic. Romantically charged lunar vibes from 6th April to 8th April will help with that.
 
   Scorpio Thursday 01 April 2021  Oct 24 - Nov 21
There is a changing of the guard this month in terms of where the focus is, continuing a pattern that began in the early days of the year. With Uranus in your relationship sector from 2019 to 2026 and Neptune in your romantic sector from 2012 to 2026, there is continuous planetary activity on both fronts. However, when you have planets that are here for so many years this is more something that is happening in the background and becomes more about the journey. That all changes when the faster moving planets move through, making things a lot more active. That happened when Mars returned to your relationship sector in the New Year, spending January and February firing things up on the relationship front. This put matters of the heart on the back burner, but they got their turn when things started to move on the romantic front from late February. The Sun and Venus both left your romantic sector last month but until Mercury leaves on 4th April, he is not only working to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page but to keep matters of the heart active. The Moon’s return to your romantic sector from 8th April to 10th April will help to cement the spirit of romance as matters of the heart move into the background, giving relationship matters a chance to have their turn again. It begins with the Moon’s return to your relationship sector from 13th April to 15th April and while it is only passing through, this will ensure you are emotionally engaged when Venus returns on 15th April. Venus will return 12 hours before the Moon leaves and while they are too far apart to align, the planet of love can take over from where the Moon leaves off. It is just four days later that Mercury, the planet of communication will return, just 15 days after leaving your romantic sector. After starting the month giving your heart a voice and putting heart and mind on the same page, Mercury will end the month giving your relationships a voice. Both will be here when the Sun returns, turning the solar spotlight onto your relationships on 20th April, as he does at the same time every year.
 
   Sagittarius Thursday 01 April 2021  Nov 22 - Dec 21
This is always one of the most romantically charged months of any year for you, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of April in your romantic sector. This is when the solar spotlight is always on matters of the heart and all things romantic but there has been an extra bonus this year. Last year Venus, the planet of love had been and gone before the Sun even returned, so they were never here at the same time. That meant that the solar spotlight was never on matters of the heart at the same time Venus was working to create the most romantically charged weeks of any year. It was a different story this year, with the Sun and Venus having returned within 48 hours of each other. Not only that, the Sun and Venus spent their first seven days together aligned, something that only ended in the final hours of March. As we move into April Venus is only slightly ahead of the Sun and still consumed by his light and therefore no longer visible as either the morning or the evening star. Instead, Venus’ romantic influence is embedded in the very sunlight itself or it will be until she leaves your romantic sector on 15th April. The Sun is here until 20th April and Mercury will return on 19th April to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page. However, it is the first half of the month that will be the most romantically charged. The Moon’s return to your romantic sector from 10th April to 13th April will see these romantically charged lunar vibes merge with the planet of love for the only time here this year, creating what could be the most romantically charged days of the month. Meanwhile, until he leaves your relationship sector on 23rd April, Mars is fighting to make his final weeks here count, fighting against complacency and inertia. The Moon’s return from 15th April to 18th April will ensure you are emotionally engaged while fuelling the kind of emotional and passionate responses that will ensure you are paying attention.
 
   Capricorn Thursday 01 April 2021  Dec 22 - Jan 19
While things are fairly quiet and it is business as usual on the romantic and relationship fronts at the start of the month, it is in the second half of April that things will come alive on both fronts. There has been no planetary activity in your relationship sector since the last planet left in September while on the romantic front, Uranus has been on his own since Mars left early last month. This means that there has been no focus on your relationships this year, apart from the Moon’s monthly visits, romantic matters have already had Mars fire things up for eight weeks. However, both get a boost this month and it begins on 13th April with the Moon’s return to your romantic sector. To begin with, there is nothing out of the ordinary about this, with the Moon returning every four weeks, creating some of the most romantically charged days of any month. However, it is just 12 hours before the Moon is due to leave on 15th April that everything changes with Venus’ returning to begin her annual visit to your romantic sector. Returning six weeks to the day since Mars left, it won’t take the planet of love long to pick up on his romantic passions and fighting spirit, giving her anything but a cold start. Mercury’s return on 19th April and the Sun’s on 20th April will cement the start of what should be the first and only romantic wave of 2021 but is instead the second. Meanwhile Mars, who created the first romantic wave from 7th January to 4th March will turn his attention to your relationships, with his return to your relationship sector on 23rd April. In this same way that Mars got matters of the heart moving months before the faster planets returned, with the Sun not returning to your relationship sector until June each year, he is doing the same on the relationship front. Once here, Mars is in your relationship sector until June, helping you to fight for what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
 
   Aquarius Thursday 01 April 2021  Jan 20 - Feb 18
There is support for romantic and relationship matters this week though in the case of the latter it is more indirect support. With no planetary activity in your relationship sector until Mars returns to your relationship sector in June, it is all about having the communication lines open and this is where you have an abundance of support. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of April in your communication sector but this year Venus, the planet of love is here as well, on a mission to give your heart and your relationships a voice until leaving on 15th April. With the Sun here until 20th April and Mercury, the planet of communication from 4th April to 19th April, the first three weeks of the month are the most important for having the communication lines open. The Moon will return to your relationship sector on 20th April, missing the Sun by just a few hours but able to take advantage of all the support until that point. Until leaving on 23rd April the Moon will fuel your emotional responses, with a chance to draw on the weeks of communication support. At the same time that your relationships are receiving indirect support through the planetary activity in your communication sector, matters of the heart are getting more direct support with Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos in your romantic sector until 23rd April. This is Mars’ first visit in two years, with his mission to fuel your romantic passions and fighting spirit having begun in early March. Knowing that the Sun, Venus and Mercury will all return to your romantic sector next month to continue what he began, Mars is able to leave things unfinished, focused more on declaring war on romantic ruts, old excuses, roadblocks or barriers, whether real or imagined. Mars is the warrior planet of the cosmos so it is all about having something to fight for. The Moon will make its last visit to your romantic sector before Mars leaves from 15th April to 18th April, something that will add fuel to his romantic passions and fighting spirit.
 
   Pisces Thursday 01 April 2021  Feb 19 - Mar 20
This should be a quiet month on the romantic and relationship fronts, for there is rarely planetary activity on either front at this time of year. Because the Sun will always return to your communication sector towards the end of April your relationships will always have an advantage, but nothing that puts any direct focus on your relationships. With the Sun not returning to your romantic sector until June each year, the only influence on the romantic front at this time of year should be the Moon’s monthly visit. To begin with, it is business as usual, though your relationships will get a boost from the Moon’s return to your communication sector from 13th April to 15th April. It is just 12 hours before the Moon is due to leave that Venus, the planet of love will return to your communication sector on 15th April, beginning her mission to give your heart and your relationships a voice. With the Moon still here when she returns but having already spent two days giving your emotional responses a voice, Venus will piggyback off this. With Mercury, the planet of communication returning to your communication sector on 19th April and the Sun on 20th April, the communication support will only increase. While there is still no planetary activity in your communication sector, the Moon’s return from 23rd April to 25th April will be a chance to take advantage of this. This comes just as things take a dramatic turn for the better on the romantic front, with Mars’ return to your romantic sector on 23rd April beginning the first planetary activity here for the year, two months before you would normally expect any. The Moon’s visit from 18th April to 20th April will give romantically charged lunar vibes a chance to prepare the way for the warrior planet’s return. Once here, Mars will continue to fuel your romantic passions and fighting spirit until he leaves on 12th June, with Venus returning nine days earlier to ensure things don’t go off the boil.
