April 2021 Libra Overview Horoscope

Monthly Snapshot

Relationships are the key theme of the month as the Sun travels through Aries and Taurus, heating up the two most partnership-oriented zones of your chart. Aries season, which lasts through April 19, spotlights the balance and equity in your closest ties. Does everything feel like a mutual give and take? You might make a bond official—or perhaps decide to take a few steps back, depending on how easily you’re able to work through any differences.
 
It’s wonderful to discover what we have in common with others, Libra, but the real test of your connection happens when you hit that inevitable dissonance, places where your values and virtues DON’T overlap. As the natural ruler of the zodiac’s seventh house, you prefer things peaceful and conflict-free. But don’t run away from these golden opportunities to find richness in what makes you and another person totally unique—be they lover, friend, colleague or even frenemy.
 
 
With excitable Mars in Gemini and your broad-minded ninth house until April 23, you could be EXTRA curious about what makes another person tick. Viva la difference! Mars in this globetrotting sector also gives you a case of wanderlust, so take any opportunity you can to safely get out of your comfort zone, whether that’s through traveling, educational adventures or even test-driving an idea for a startup business. When Mars moves into Cancer and your ambitious tenth house on April 23, you might spend the following six weeks turning one of those golden ideas into a viable business.
 
Slip under the radar a bit starting April 19, when Taurus season spotlights your intimate and private eighth house. One special connection could heat up romantically, or a joint moneymaking venture could have “power duo” written all over it. Craving some solitude for research, spiritual restoration or deep emotional work? Hang the “do not disturb” sign without apology.
 

Week 1: April 1-11
Team dreams


This week is devoted to those cultivating your connections and learning to work (and play) well with others. As the Sun marches through Aries and your partnership zone, it’s all about who you know—and how effectively you can collaborate.
 
As a natural relationship cultivator, you know a lot of people, Libra. But not everyone merits inner-circle status. Spend a little time “sorting the crops” of your contact list this week and reflecting on where you spend your time. Is your A-list squad getting scraps while superficial “friends” receive your best energy? It may be time to reallocate your attention. By the time the annual Aries new moon arrives on Sunday, April 11, you’ll be ready to start fresh with an important person or someone totally new.
 
Stay open to possibilities for a long-term commitment, whether personal or professional. But take your time and really make sure this is a good fit. An opportunity to join forces could arrive, one that could unfold into an official partnership between now and the October 20 Aries full moon.
 
A bout of “analysis paralysis” could precede the new moon on Friday, April 9, when impatient Mars and indecisive Neptune lock into an embattled square. You may realize you’ve bitten off more than you can chew with a project and could feel overwhelmed by all the details. Call for backup!
 
If you’ve delegated to someone who’s acting flaky, sit down for a direct conversation about their performance. Maybe they need clearer leadership and direction, which you can provide. But if they’re not up for the task or unwilling to do what it takes to cross the finish line, you may need to part ways. If so, perfect timing, because the Aries new moon two days later could attract a much better fit.

Week 2: April 12-18
Stretch your comfort zone


The week begins in the wake of the Aries new moon, and you could feel invigorated about a new (or renewed) relationship. Spend time getting on the same page as your people and reaching out to fresh connections so you can explore synergies. 
 
Saturday, April 17, brings two important planetary meetups that will shift your perspective, helping you make more informed decisions. The first is the semiannual square between the Aries Sun in your partnership zone and shadowy Pluto in Capricorn and your domestic fourth house.
 
Family members may voice disapproval or doubt about your relationship. Unresolved issues stemming back to childhood could flare up as you move deeper toward a commitment. You might even find yourself embattled with a person who reminds you of a difficult parent or sibling. Sun-Pluto squares can drive up ego clashes and power struggles, but they can also lead to powerful breakthrough insights. Notice any repeating patterns instead of just reacting or lashing out. This is a chance to interrupt those self-sabotaging cycles instead of reliving them over and over again.
 
Also on Saturday, ambitious Mars and expansive Jupiter will form a harmonious trine in two of the most ebullient and attention-grabbing zones of your chart. With Mars in your outspoken and global ninth house and Jupiter in your passionate fifth, you could draw fame and admiration from places far outside your comfort zone. The Mars-Jupiter trine could spark an opportunity to teach, study or creatively collaborate from afar.
 
With worldly Jupiter in your romantic fifth house, a long-distance love connection might be in the stars. You could find yourself attracted to someone quite different than your usual “type,” perhaps from another culture or background. A passionate conversation could lead to a meeting of the minds and hearts.

Week 3: April 19-25
What lies beneath

 
Dive into the depths! On Monday, April 19, the Sun plunges into determined, methodical Taurus and your private, intimate eighth house for a month. It’s a time to slip under the radar a bit and do some focused work. Tune out distractions, go into tunnel-vision mode and handle those nitty-gritty pieces of an unfinished puzzle.
 
Eighth-house energy means that shared finances could be in the spotlight, perhaps through an investment, a real estate deal or the division or merging of assets. If questions arise, tackle them Taurus-style: one methodical step at a time.
 
Winding down after work could get steamy this week, Libra. With the Sun heating up your erotic eighth house, this year’s spring thaw might just start in your bedroom. Your mojo is ready to rise during sensual Taurus season, adding to your strong desire for some sizzling one-on-one time. Taurus and Libra are the two signs ruled by seductive Venus, doubling the intensity of this energy!
 
Although Taurus season may find you internal and reflective, your sights will set on plenty of worldly goals starting Friday, April 23, when ambitious Mars zooms into Cancer and heats up your tenth house of career and long-term success until June 11. Work could get ultra-busy, with long hours and tight deadlines, so you’ll really want to make the most of your Taurus season downtime. When you’re done for the day, hang the “do not disturb” sign, silence notifications and focus on either recharging your batteries or giving your undivided attention to the handful of people in your inner circle.
 

Week 4: April 26-30
Future finances


This week begins with a focus on finances as the year’s only full moon in Scorpio beams into your second house of work and money on Monday, April 26. You may reach the end of one chapter with your job and move on to a new position. Or you could make definitive moves toward a new role, position or promotion. Time to take on an exciting project that could boost your revenue? The full moon could deliver a thrilling opportunity.

The full moon will form a looser T-square with disruptor Uranus and structured Saturn, a three-way tug o’ war which could leave you torn between whether to make a huge change to your life or to stick with what you’ve already got in motion. You’ll feel that most pressingly in your quest to balance duty and desire, work and play. If you’re putting yourself out there as a public figure or “influencer,” you may also need to bolster that with a polished, upgraded image and a rock-solid plan. Make those budgets and schedules—but also leave room for the muse to visit!
 
On Tuesday, April 27, potent Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn and your fourth house of home and family until October 6. If the energy in your home could use a lift, this is a good time to get things back in order with family or your living situation.

A powerful moment arrives on Friday, April 30, when the bold Sun and changemaker Uranus make their once-a-year connection in Taurus and your eighth house of intimacy, merged energies and shared finances. You may suddenly find yourself all the way in—or all the way out—of a key relationship. 

An opportunity to make a large chunk of money could arrive when you least expect it, or you may devise an innovative way to pay down debt or get an investor for one of your novel ideas.
