Happy April, Libra! At the end of March, you assertively stated your romantic needs, and your love life improved as a result. You’re in for even more positive change when your ruling planet, the lover planet Venus, enters sweet Pisces on Tuesday, April 5, promoting transformation within your relationships. Thankfully, this transit helps you work out any disagreements with a partner or offers a confidence boost to slide into your crush’s DMs finally.
But even with the goddess Venus on your side, navigating dating is stressful. When the communication planet Mercury enters Taurus on Sunday, April 10, you are ready to communicate your needs regarding health. Of course, there’s safer sex to think about, but don’t neglect your mental and emotional needs. It’s normal to need some time to heal after fights with romantic partners, and even the best relationships need all the communication help they can get. So, if you are partnered, consider working with a couples counselor. And don’t forget to stay up-to-date on STI screening.
Taking time for your health pays off. When the fighters planet Mars, which rules raw sexual energy, enters pretty Pisces on Thursday, April 14, the stars sprinkle fairy dust all over your intimate relationships. This is an ideal time to vocalize your secret fantasies or experiment with a new type of sex toy. In particular, Saturday, April 16, is a magical night for love and sex. It brings a full moon in your sign, Libra, putting all the attention on you. Full moons are primal times that bring out everyone’s animal side. Healthily channel this energy through love-making with a partner, or treat yourself to a bath and a night of relaxation.
Taurus season kicks off on Tuesday, April 19. No one likes going to the doctor, but the next few weeks ask you to focus on your health. Yes, this means dentist visits and regular check-ups you’ve been putting off, but it also means luxurious self-care. Taurus is a sensual sign and even shares your ruling planet Venus. So, in addition to completing check-ups, make plenty of time for sleep and your preferred method of stress relief, such as meditation or time in nature.
On Friday, April 29, the communication planet Mercury enters charismatic Gemini, helping you communicate your needs surrounding pleasure. Earlier in the month, you tried new things, whether it was through solo pleasure or kinky experimentation with a partner. Of course, the physical aspect of sex is fun, but don’t forget about aftercare or the process of checking in afterward. Ask yourself what you enjoyed, what wasn’t worth the hype, and if you have a partner, see how they feel as well. Next time, you can use this information to make the experience even better.
