monthly horoscope for april 2023

Your monthly love horoscope for April 2023 is here with great news for all zodiac signs in astrology. While stubbornness can be more likely due to Mercury entering Taurus in April, we learned to avoid compromising ourselves for the sake of love, thanks to Mars when it ravished the sign of Gemini. Here's a rundown of all the important dates to mark on your calendar and how they impact your love life.

The most romantic dates for the month of April 2023

Monday, April 3rd, Mercury enters Taurus 

Mercury enters Taurus on April 3, 2023. Mercury is the planet that rules your mind, governing all forms of communication. Communication is one of the most crucial factors within a relationship; it tends to make a significant impact. Mercury in Taurus tends to look at things from the ground up. It will be more apt to communicate plans and ideas rather than feelings, yet it still seeks to experience and share joy and pleasure, so it will not be all boring. This could allow important relationship conversations to flourish and help you and your partner feel more stable within your connection. Mercury in Taurus can set the stage for a productive month ahead.  

Thursday, April 6th, Full Moon in Libra

Today, the Full Moon in Libra helps heal relationships. Did you set intentions around the New Moon in Libra on September 25th, 2022? If so, you may have recommitted to a relationship or decided it was time to leave. Since then, life has taken you on a healing journey, teaching you to focus on yourself. Now, you will continue to make changes that foster balance. You are ready to make your relationship stronger and more connected because you have learned to be more patient and understanding.

Tuesday, April 11th, Venus enters Gemini

Venus moves into Gemini, which can often bring concerns for relationships. Venus is the planet of love and relationships; however, Venus in Gemini keeps things interesting often leads to straying eyes. But that is only one side of Gemini and does not paint the full picture. Gemini represents the duality present between the human and the soul. Socialization and fun take greater precedence during this time, but it does not mean any committed soul-deep relationships are doomed. During this time, it is your chance to try new things together. Plan a day trip or weekend away, watch a documentary together, or take dancing lessons. The trick to Venus in Gemini is to try new things together and to allow yourself to understand any restlessness does not necessarily mean there is a problem but only an opportunity.  

Thursday, April 20th, Sun enters Taurus/New Moon in Aries with Total Solar Eclipse 

Today, a bit of oddity occurs in the sky as the Sun shifts into Taurus, beginning the Taurus Zodiac Season while the Moon slowly reaches the height of the New Moon in Aries. The New propels you into that new chapter. Adding to this auspicious energy, it also happens to be a Total Solar Eclipse, which opens a two-week portal between eclipses and ushers in dramatic changes within your life. This is a wild card moon that logically should not even be happening, but it still is. You will see this theme in your life as you are urged to act, and your future self will thank you for it.

Friday, April 21st 

Until now, all planets have been direct since the end of January. This has been a beneficial time of growth and moving ahead while you were fast-tracked by the cosmos to take advantage of opportunities and clarity so that you could start the year off on a strong note. Now, it's time for reflection. Today marks the beginning of Mercury’s retrograde in Taurus, which will help create greater stability and certainty as you plan your future. This retrograde echo back to May of 2022 and 2016 as Mercury moves through Taurus helping you to continue developing certain lessons and clarity to make the most of this eclipse portal. Remember, the universe never makes a mistake, so if you are rethinking the future of your relationship, it means it is all for a higher purpose.

It's hard to talk about what is coming your way in April without celebrating the exit of Pluto from Capricorn.

With Mars in your zodiac sign this month, you may feel slightly motivated to do something to change things in your romantic life but don't do so out of anger. This month, the Last Quarter Moon in Capricorn, that sign that governs your love life, helps you heal for good. By the end of this month, you will feel much better than you did at the start of the year. Be sure to give yourself a chance to find love by going out with friends and socializing more frequently. Love will come to you, but you must meet it halfway this month.
