Why yes, it IS getting hot in here, Libra. And it may surpass the boiling point on Wednesday, April 26 when the year's only new moon in Taurus lights a fire in your eighth house of intimacy and seduction. Solitary Libras won't be alone any longer than they care to be. All it takes is a little "putting yourself out there" effort. Mix, mingle, chat up friends of friends and even strangers. Your psychic antennas will be highly attuned, and you'll just KNOW if someone has potential or not. The merging urge may be hard to contain…so don't bother trying! You just don't want to get too serious too fast—especially when you know something's just physical. Should you hook up with somebody with real potential, however, that's the time to tug on the reins and slow things down. The courtship phase is the sweetest part of the getting-to-know-you process, and you don't want to miss out on a single second. Besides, these moonbeams will be working their magic for up to six months, and you might not know for sure until the corresponding full moon in Taurus on November 4. Taurus doesn't do anything in a hurry, and this of all things deserves a long, slow buildup. The eighth house also rules shared finances. If you're in a LTR or have a business partner, issues of cost- and profit-sharing may come up for reevaluation during this phase. Yours is the sign of fair play, so if you feel like you're putting in too much and not getting an equitable ROI, hammer out a new arrangement. That doesn't mean splitting everything to the penny. In some cases, time is just as valuable as money. Whether you're part of a team or on your own, this is an excellent time to review your investment strategy, starting with: Do you even have a portfolio? (It's never too late to start.) If you do, is it appropriately diversified? How much are you paying your adviser—can you renegotiate the terms? If you don't know an index fund from a muni, it's time to read some Suze Orman or hire a financial planner to guide you to wealth.

On Friday, you may feel pressure to commit to a certain partnership—or cut bait and run like hell. That's because your ruler, amorous Venus, marches into your seventh house of relationships. In decisive Aries, she can certainly handle a "yes" and can live with a "no," but the one thing she CAN'T tolerate is ambivalence. Sometime over the next few weeks you could reach a tipping point. If you're close to putting all your chips on one exciting prospect, you might as well give it a go. Don't give up your lease, but maybe close that back door and forget about the escape route. Heart not in it? A change of scenery could do you a world of good. This is the love planet's second visit to your seventh house this year. The first was from February 3 to April 2, and it included a circuit-frying retrograde period that began March 4. This time around, be more strategic. Download a new dating app and give people a fighting chance! If you're "dabbling" with someone you like-but-don't-love, see what happens if you opened up more and did some deep sharing from the heart. Libras in happy relationships should enjoy more of the sensuality and hedonism that your ruler, sweet Venus, brings. Fill the cultural calendar with tapas and wine tastings, tickets to "the theatah" and even a festival weekend. By feeding the relationship the quality time it needs, your bond is bound to strengthen. Wait until the good vibes are flowing before you broach any serious topics about the future. Timing is everything—and you'll be in a stronger position to get a "yes" when you're beaming beatifically instead of smiling to cover up your frustration. Remember, Libra: The magic of the moment is what sets the tone for a happier future.
