Monthly Libra Horoscope April 2015
Saturn the Taskmaster has required you to take greater responsibility for your life ever since it entered your sign on October 29, 2014. On April 7, it retrogrades back into detail-oriented Virgo and your 12th House of Endings, offering you one more chance to break out of unhealthy patterns that no longer serve you.
The tension between respecting tradition and rebelling against it increases throughout the month; you’re finally forced to do something about it when stern Saturn opposes wayward Uranus on April 26. This is part of a long-term transition that began on November 4, 2013, and culminates on July 26—one that can revitalize your relationships and have you challenging authority in order to bring about necessary change.
The self-starting Aries New Moon on April 14 falls in your 7th House of Partners, an opportune time to review your needs in relation to others. Finding a healthy balance between individual goals and mutual dreams can be tricky, yet Mercury and Venus are both in your 8th House of Intimacy and Transformation, allowing you to talk it out. Additionally, Mercury’s retrograde period from April 18 to May 11 is a time to reconsider old assumptions, share them with someone you trust, and perhaps consult a therapist. You can get a lot of mileage from psychological and spiritual tools now if you apply them to deepening your connection with others rather than justifying your retreat. On April 28, the passionate Scorpio Full Moon in your 2nd House of Self-Worth opposes Mercury in determined Taurus, giving you the strength to hold your ground when negotiating with others. However, you may need to scale back your demands, for the Full Moon’s square to feisty Mars can make you uncharacteristically combative.
Key Dates for Libra April 2015APRIL 3–6
Clever Mercury and creative Venus are traveling companions now in your 8th House of Deep Sharing, motivating you to take conversations about love into vulnerable places in search of additional meaning. Together, they square contentious Mars in dramatic Leo, bringing you to the edge of verbal combat. You know what you want, you express it, and you’re willing to show that you mean it. Fortunately, Mercury and Venus also create agreeable trines with evolutionary Pluto, allowing you to magically transform a potential conflict into an intimate moment if you’re willing to join someone in unknown emotional territory.
Even if you’re sure a recent power struggle is over, another layer of emotional dissonance becomes apparent when aggressive Mars attempts to exert control over domineering Pluto. Well-meaning friends could be the source of annoyance now as Mars in your 11th House of Teamwork forms an irritating quincunx with Pluto in your 4th House of Security. If others are intruding into your personal business without your permission, you’ll need to set boundaries even if it means an unpleasant skirmish. A magical Mercury-Neptune quintile, though, could give you exactly the right words to smooth ruffled feathers without surrendering any territory.
Your desires deepen on April 17 thanks to the influence of fervent Pluto. Total satisfaction may be elusive, yet sensual Venus receives support from hopeful Jupiter to bring you a temporary peace offering. But intellectual Mercury turns retrograde in your 8th House of Shared Resources on April 18, slowing communications and increasing the distance between you and a partner. Don’t waste energy fighting this mental undertow. Instead, learn what you can by revisiting recent love lessons so you can apply them when the opportunity returns.
