Libra Monthly Vedic Astrology Horoscope: April 2020
Your Month Ahead: April Forecast
Transformation is in the air, dear Libra (pun intended)! Your ruler Venus will be moving through the stable earthly sign of Taurus for April and part of May.
Taurus is the other Venus ruled sign and connects to deep personal transformation for you personally since Venus is also the planet that represents you, as ruler of Libra. This transformation may be both internal and/or external. You might decide to change your appearance – you may decide it’s time to start or stop coloring your hair.
The first part of the month you will also be feeling the multi-dimensional influences from expansive Jupiter and serious Saturn. These two planets truly do have conflicting agendas. Saturn is the stronger of the two so be sure pay homage to his sense of responsibility and hard work, especially during the first week of April.
Fiery Mars will be almost lock step with lovely Venus which is unusual since Venus is typically much faster moving than Mars. Passionate and fiery Mars combined with a very sensuous Venus in Taurus can bring a lot of desire and fire into relationships (Mars is your relationship planet), but it also has the potential to create some relationship challenges, too.
Since Venus is slowing down to go retrograde in May (more on this in next month’s forecast!), these two passionate planets will be co-mingling energies very intensely from April 8-28. On a practical level the Mars influence can give way to impatience and frustration so check in every so often and find something that can mitigate these issues if they arise. Get your coloring book and colored pencils out (Venus will LOVE that!) or take a 5-minute mindfulness break.
Your good friend Mercury, who rules communication and writing will finally be free from Rahu’s influence as of April 7. Mercury heads into watery and nebulous Pisces which does not support Mercury’s usual rational and analytical approach. From April 7-23 this will be a good time for all creative thinking, writing or speaking. If you have some serious analysis to conduct or something you want to figure out, you may want to wait until Mercury moves into Aries on April 24.
April 7 Full Moon in Chitra Nakshatra
New and full Moon phases will always activate your career, social engagement and your public reputation since Moon is responsible for this area of your birth chart. You may feel the ebb and flow of your sociability as the Moon waxes and wanes to the extremes. This full Moon will be no exception!
The Moon will illuminate your subconscious mind and you may desire to bring a more spiritual quality into your work at this time. Since this full Moon is about endings or completion, you may also wish to end something related to your career, whether it is just an element of your work or possibly it could be a 180 degree pivot to something else entirely.
April 22 New Moon in Ashwini
Relationships. A favorite topic for Venus ruled signs! If you are not currently in a committed relationship, take full advantage of this one and only new Moon in your relationship sector for 2020! Set your intentions. With the new Moon in the healing nakshatra of Ashwini you may also want to contemplate what would constitute a healing experience within relationship for you.
If you are in a committed partnership, what do you need in the way of stability and excitement so that your relationship can continue to heal old wounds, grow and flourish? Set your intentions!
