Monthly Love Horoscopes - April 2020
Despite the fact that the asteroid Juno is still the only planet in your relationship sector and even then she is in retrograde motion, this should be a good month for relationship matters. That is despite the Full Moon in your relationship sector on 8th April and the pressure this can put on you and your relationships. There are three reasons why this should not only be a good month for relationship matters but the start of several good months. The first is Juno herself for while she is only an asteroid, as the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships she has a lot of clout here. The second reason is Saturn and Mars, whose return to your friendship sector last month is offering Juno and your relationships real support. Saturn won't venture far enough to form a friendly aspect to Juno but Mars will, creating a good month for friendship and relationship building. However, the real game changer is Venus, the planet of love's return to your communication sector. Venus will be here by 4th April, so in time for the Full Moon in your relationship sector four days later. This won't stop your personal and relationship needs from clashing or any relationship tension this might create, but on hand to give your heart and your relationships a voice Venus can turn this into an opportunity for a breakthrough. Venus will spend around 24 days here each year so should be gone from your communication sector by the end of the month. Instead, a retrograde turn next month will keep Venus here until August and with Juno in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, this will increase your ability to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. Venus will spend her early days here at a friendly aspect to Saturn, cementing what is the start of the most powerful months for friendship and relationship building seen in decades.
Last year Venus, the planet of love and your ruling planet didn't return to Taurus until May and didn't leave until June but as we move into April, she is already in her final days here. Venus was not only early to return this year but instead of spending the 24 days she will normally spend updating your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year, she will have been here for 30 days by the time she leaves. Venus will be gone by 4th April but her influence and the additional six days she spent here will continue to have an impact. With your birthday month and new solar year still over two weeks away by the time Venus leaves, this gives you time to cement her desires and expectations and that is where the Moon comes in. It was last month, while Venus was in her early weeks in Taurus that the Moon made its monthly visits to your romantic and relationship sectors. A romantically charged Full Moon during Venus' early days in Taurus helped to bank your romantic expectations early on. The Moon will come full circle from those visits just days after Venus leaves this month and this will bring a valuable chance to revisit and revise those expectations. The Moon will return to your romantic sector from 5th April to 7th April, coming full circle from last month's romantically charged Full Moon less than 48 hours after Venus leaves. The Moon will return to your relationship sector from 9th April to 11th April and as the last visit before returning as a Full Moon next month, these will be important days to check in. By the time your birthday month and new solar year begin Venus will have already spent a month updating your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year and the Moon will have had a chance to revisit and revise those expectations. Your relationships will benefit from Mercury, planet of communication's return to Taurus on 28th April.
Juno might be a small player and as an asteroid, she might not be able to compete with the big boys but she finds herself in the right place at the right time this month. Juno, queen of commitment returned to your romantic sector in November for what should have been a two month visit aimed at giving your heart a sense of conviction and to encourage a sense of determination when it comes to matters of the heart. Juno should have left in January but instead turned retrograde and is now here until September. For Juno, nothing changes this month other than being in the right place at the right time, in terms of the company she is keeping and the support she is getting. It began with Saturn's return to an adventurous part of your chart last month and while this will have no direct impact this has the spirit of adventure more legitimacy. It is a different story for Mars' whose return in the final hours of March is not only fuelling a passion for adventure but a friendly aspect to Juno will bring the spirit of romance, passion and adventure together. Yet as exciting as this is for matters of the heart it is that fact that they are here when Venus, the planet of love returns to Gemini that is the game changer. Juno should be long gone but instead is here as Venus returns for what should be a 24 day visit that gives you the full attention of the planet of love. Yet from 4th April, when Venus is in her first full day in Gemini while there will be a lot of nostalgia, romance, passion and adventure in the air there will be little urgency. Where Juno is already in a retrograde phase that will keep her in your romantic sector until September, Venus will turn retrograde in Gemini next month, keeping her here until August. What should be an exciting few weeks where the spirit of nostalgia, romance, passion and adventure come together, is instead the start of an exciting few months.
The big news on the relationship front is not what is happening or what is there to impact your relationships but what is not there. For the first time in over two years you begin the month without Saturn, the hard taskmaster of the cosmos in your relationship sector and with a relationship boot camp that began in 2017 on hold. Also missing is Mars, with the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos having left your relationship sector on 31st March, nine days behind Saturn. Where Saturn's departure has taken a lot of the pressure off you and your relationships, Mars' departure has left you with something to fight for. Saturn is not gone for good and will retrograde back to rejoin Jupiter and Pluto here in early July. With both Jupiter and Saturn leaving in December and then not returning for decades, this gives the planet of luck and expansion a few months without Saturn's restrictions and pedantic ways and instead a chance to work with Pluto, the planet of change and revolution. Mars aligned with both Jupiter and Pluto during his final 12 days in your relationship sector, so while you begin the month them aligned here, Mars' passionate influence is there in shadow form. Jupiter caught up with Pluto on 29th March and will remain aligned until 6th April, with their alignment peaking on 4th April. When you have the planets of luck and change come together, just as Saturn has moved aside and with Mars' passion and warrior spirit giving you something to fight for, this is going to breathe new life and enthusiasm into your relationships. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, this is also a chance to draw a new line in the sand. In the meantime, expect a sense of romantic nostalgia to roll in from 4th April, as Venus begins a four month visit to a nostalgic part of your chart to begin a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane.
From out of the blue your relationships, which had been put on the back burner after the Sun and Mercury left your relationship sector in February, are back on the front burner and this is where it will remain. In reality, things never went completely off the boil, with the dwarf planet Ceres staying on after the Sun left in order to give you a chance to reassess your relationship needs and priorities. What you didn't know at the time was that this was preparation for something much bigger than anything seen in decades. You had a sense of this when Mercury, the planet of communication retrograded back into your relationship sector last month, a month after leaving, only to leave again 12 days later. Why Mercury had to turn back and spend additional time getting the communication lines open became clear when Saturn returned six days later, making his first visit to your relationship sector since 1994. Saturn had only been here for nine days when Mars returned in the closing hours of March, with the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos on board as well as you move into the new month. March began with most of the planetary activity on the relationship front for the year having run its course but April begins with the most powerful planetary activity in decades underway. Mars is here until mid May and Saturn will retrograde back out in July but not before they both spend time preparing for not just Saturn's return in December but Jupiter's as well. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, this is the first month of a journey that will take until 2023 to fully run its course and is a chance for a completely fresh start. A Full Moon in your communication sector on 8th April is not the only communication support your relationships will have while from 4th April, from her position in your friendship sector you will have Venus, the planet of love providing support for friendship and relationship building.
Things take on a lighter tone on both the romantic and relationship fronts this month while on both fronts, keeping forces in play that can be a real boost. The month not only begins with Jupiter and Pluto aligned in your romantic sector but with Mars having just left in the final hours of March. With Saturn gone, your romantic passions and fighting spirit fuelled and the planets of luck and change aligned, this is the first time since Jupiter's return in December that his influence can really be felt. Jupiter only visits your romantic sector once every 12 years and is supposed to be a lucky year for love. However, since his return in December, Jupiter has had to play by Saturn, hard taskmaster of the cosmos' rules. Pluto is the planet of change and revolution and with Saturn gone, he is ready to change things up and as he will spend the first six days of April aligned with Jupiter, it is time to put this lucky year for love to work. This is Jupiter's last full month in direct motion and Pluto will turn direct here on 26th April, with the doors opening to the past and second chances by the end of the month. Meanwhile, the Sun's departure from your relationship sector on the March equinox is something that happens at this time every year, taking the solar spotlight off your relationships. However, held back by a retrograde phase and having also taken a 12 day break Mercury, the planet of communication is still here and until leaving your relationship sector on 11th April will work to keep the communication lines open. Even after Mercury leaves dreamy Neptune will stay on, with this month remaining an important month for both romantic and relationship matters.
Every year has its ordinary pattern and on the relationship front, this is what you are experiencing this month. It is on the romantic front that something extraordinary and even game changing is underway. The ordinary pattern of each year is that the Sun, Mercury and Venus will move through your romantic sector in January and February of each year and through your relationship sector in March and April. So far that has been the case and continues to be, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of April in your relationship sector. While the Sun will be gone by 20th April, Mercury's return on 11th April will keep the focus on your relationships. Mercury is part of that annual pattern, with the planet of communication returning to give your relationships a voice and to ensure the communication lines are open. Mercury will be here from 11th April to 28th April. It is on the romantic front that the extraordinary is happening, at a time when all planetary activity on the romantic front should have run its course for the year. In terms of the ordinary focus that matters of the heart get once a year, that is the case. What we have this month is the extraordinary. Just starting the month with Mars in your romantic sector is exciting, with the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos having returned in the final hours of March. However, it was Saturn's return nine days earlier that has forever changed the dynamics on the romantic front, with his first visit since 1994 putting his considerable weight behind matters of the heart. With Mars here until the middle of next month, he will spend the whole of April fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit. Another factor is Venus, the planet of love's return to an adventurous part of your chart from 4th April, where she will spend the next four months bringing the spirit of romance and adventure together.
Because the Sun will always end April in your relationship sector, this is the latest point in any year when the focus can shift onto your relationships. However, things changed when Uranus returned to your relationship sector in March 2019, keeping the focus permanently on your relationships until he leaves in 2026. However, as a slow outer planet, Uranus largely operates in the background, silently and sometimes not so silently, working to keep things real and authentic. It is when the faster moving planets move through that a focus on your relationships moves from being something that happens in the background. While the Sun's return was always going to put the solar spotlight on your relationships by 20th April, you already have a head start. It was early last month that Venus returned, months earlier than she did last year. With Venus gone by 4th April, over two weeks before the Sun returns, this gives the planet of love a chance to separate her agenda. Where the Sun will turn the solar spotlight on your relationships in order to perform the reality checks and the relationship housekeeping that happens at this time every year, Venus is more focused on updating your wish list. Already slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next month, had Venus spent the 24 days she normally spends here she would have left last month. Instead, the planet of love is still here in the early days of the month, giving your heart a voice and a chance to update your relationship wish list. Held back by his retrograde turn last month Mercury, the planet of communication won't return until 28th April, returning in the final days of the month to ensure the communication lines are open. In the meantime, with no planetary activity on the romantic front, the Moon's visit to your relationship sector from 18th April to 20th April is an important chance to embrace the spirit of romance.
It is a given that the focus will be on matters of the heart this month, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of April in your romantic sector. This is a time of year when the solar spotlight is always on matters of the heart so this is no surprise. Even though the Sun will be gone by 20th April, with Mercury returning on 11th April and then spending until 28th April working to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page, matters of the heart will still be supported. It is on the relationship front that the real surprises come and yes, that is 'surprises' and not 'surprise'. The biggest surprise is Venus, the planet of love's return to your relationship sector on 4th April. With the Sun not returning until later next month and Venus having not returned until June in 2019, to have Venus return this early in the year is not the norm. This is where the second surprise comes in because Venus has not only returned to your relationship sector earlier than she normally would, she has returned as early as she is allowed to. This will force Venus to wait for the Sun and she will do that by turning retrograde next month, spending four months here rather than the usual 24 days. But wait, there is more. The biggest surprise is what Venus finds when she returns, which is a built in support team. Venus returns to find Saturn and Mars in your communication sector, Saturn for the first time since 1994 and Mars for the first time since 2018. Together this doesn't just give your first visit but some of the most powerful communication support in decades. This will be evident from the get go, with Venus spending her early days here at a friendly aspect to Saturn. Venus will also return to find Juno, queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships not only in your friendship sector but here until September. This will provide support for friendship and relationship building throughout Venus' four month visit.
A couple of different factors make this a good month for relationship matters, while at the same time romantic matters will get an even more obvious boost. The month begins with Venus, the planet of love in your romantic sector and will end with the Sun here, as will be the case at this time every year, but they won't be here at the same time. Even though Venus has been here a month by the time she leaves, there is a 16 day gap between her departure and the Sun's return. Venus will be gone by 4th April and the Sun will be here by 20th April, giving you time in between to let her romantic influence, desires and expectations settle. With Uranus in your romantic sector since last March and not leaving until 2026 and Mercury returning on 28th April, the spirit of romance won't go off the boil. Returning ahead of the Sun, Venus is able to fuel the spirit of romance and update your wish list, letting this settle before the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto romantic matters. Meanwhile, it is the Moon's visit from 23rd April to 24th April that will create a New Moon during its early hours here. This is always a time for new beginnings and for saying yes to matters of the heart. In the meantime, while the focus on your relationships is more subtle is it just as important. The North Node is spending its last full month in your relationship sector and the South Node its last full month in Capricorn, where they have been policing a balance between your personal and relationship needs. With Saturn and Mars gone from Capricorn this has been a lot easier to balance while with Mercury, the planet of communication in your communication sector until 11th April, there is a real chance to ensure the communication lines are open.
To start with, Mars and Saturn's return to Aquarius last month is having more of a personal impact and while this is significant and empowering, the real surprise is the romantic impact this will have. Mars only returned to Aquarius in the final hours of March, so you are still adjusting to having his passions and warrior spirit pumping through your system and will still be looking at somewhere to channel this. To start with though, what you can't know is the romantic implications this will have. You will discover this when Venus, the planet of love not only returns to your romantic sector on 4th April but will spend her first 24 hours here at a friendly aspect to Saturn. With Saturn and Mars in Aquarius all month, this will not only keep them at a friendly aspect to Venus but will provide something to channel Mars' passions and warrior spirit into. At the same time, all three will benefit from having the asteroid Juno in an adventurous part of your chart, as will she. Both Venus and Mars will form a friendly aspect to Juno, bringing the spirit of romance, passion and adventure together. Even if it had been the ordinary 24 day visit that Venus makes once a year, these would still be some of the most romantically charged weeks of 2020. If this was an ordinary 24 day visit then Venus would be gone by the end of the month but not only will she spend the rest of the month here, but the whole of next month and the month after as well. As well as returning almost three months earlier than she returned last year, once the planet of love reaches your romantic sector she is here to stay, not leaving until August. This is because of a retrograde turn next month and with Juno already in retrograde motion in an adventurous part of your chart, a sense of romance, adventure and nostalgia will only deepen over the coming months.
While there is no planetary activity in either your romantic or relationship sectors this month and you wouldn't expect any, in their own way they both get exactly what they need. While there is no planetary activity in your romantic sector, the North Node is spending its last full month here quietly updating your heart's GPS and giving matters of the heart a sense of direction. The North Node isn't a physical object and is instead a gravitational pull and is responsible for a series of eclipses over the last few years. The Moon will visit your romantic sector twice this month, each time aligning with the North Node and giving you a chance to get your bearings. The Moon will begin the month in your romantic sector, with romantically charged lunar vibes in effect during the first two days of the month. The Moon will come full circle from 28th April to 30th April and as the last visit before the North Node leaves, this will be an important time to listen to your heart and to let the spirit of romance take the lead. Each time the Moon returns is a chance to get a better read on the North Node's influence. Meanwhile, the Moon's visit to your relationship sector from 5th April to 7th April is the only direct focus on your relationships, making it important to listen to your emotional responses during this time. However, what your relationships do have is something even better, which is wall to wall planetary activity in your communication sector. When there is planetary activity in your relationship sector this can put the pressure on and will expose any issues. However, planetary activity in your communication sector will keep the communication lines open and this is exactly what your relationship needs. The month begins with Venus, the planet of love in her final days in your communication sector and of a month long mission to give your heart and your relationships a voice. Venus will be gone by 4th April but Uranus is here all month, the Sun will be here by 20th April and Mercury, the planet of communication will return on 28th April.
