April 2018 Monthly Love Horoscope


photoAre you stuck in a bad place in your love life, but don’t quite know how you got there and can’t seem to find a way out? If so, there’s a great chance this month to find your true bearings and get back on the right track!

Help is at hand courtesy of the ‘big heavy’ planets Saturn and Pluto, both of which turn Retrograde this April, giving us the opportunity to discover and heal some of the hidden causes of our current relationships problems. These planets may well have a reputation for being quite scary. But if we have the courage to face them square on, Saturn and Pluto can actually be our good friends.

Periods when Saturn is retrograding can often be incredibly frustrating. However hard we work at trying to resolve our problems, making any kind of progress seems virtually impossible and it can feel like we’re floundering in the dark.

But when retrograding Pluto also gets in on the act, it’s all change and it can seem like a light has suddenly been switched on! When retrograding, Pluto does a great job of showing us what is blocking us from moving forward, and pointing us in the right direction again.

Retrograding Saturn and Pluto tend to operate well in tandem this month. First, from around 17th April, retrograding Saturn gives us a strong sense of discontentment with our present situation, and a burning desire to work our way through. Then, by the time retrograding Pluto follows up from around April 22nd, we should be more ready to listen to answers, even if they’re not really what we want to hear!

We all possess certain character traits or behavior patterns that create major blocks between ourselves and other people. But because our ego isn’t keen on admitting to these weaknesses, it’s easy to remain blind to them through our entire lives.

Similarly, when we sense something is seriously amiss in a relationship that we’re fearful of losing, sweeping our suspicions under the rug is often a lot easier than probing into what’s going wrong.

However, when Saturn and Pluto are both retrograding, it’s much harder to bury our head in the sand and pretend that everything in our life is just fine, when clearly the opposite is true. At these times, the chances are the Cosmos is going to give us some very clear feedback – whether we want it or not.

These two major retrogrades will affect us all for approximately 6 months in 2018, right through until September. So don’t simply wait to be hit between the eyes with an unwelcome bombshell revelation. Instead, ask the Universe to very gently and caringly shine a light on what’s holding you back in your relationships. It’s the first step towards inviting more peace and happiness into your life.
