It’s hard to know what’s real when Venus conjoins Neptune on April 11. This is one of astrology’s trippiest pairings because when you’re hooked, you’re hooked. Infatuation doesn’t begin to explain it. The high is so intense that you’ll swear you’ve found your soul mate. Yet the Venus/Neptune conjunction will also make you fearful of doing the wrong thing. It can throw a “don’t ask, don’t tell” gag order over your true feelings because you don’t want to break the spell. It’s why Venus/Neptune conjunctions are famous for secret crushes that never get revealed. Don’t let the fantasy drain the life out of the reality of what could be. You’ll never know if you’re meant for each other unless you speak up.
ARIES (March 20 – April 18)
Impulses couldn't be more mixed between you and your lover right now. It's hard to tell if you're getting together or calling it quits. On April 8 the sun will form an opposition to Mars, the warrior planet. Sun and Mars oppositions are famous for conflicts, clashes and crises. However, Mars is weakest in Libra and the retrograde makes it even more non-confrontational. You may hate the fact that you're being so wishy-washy, but in truth you're both trying to find a way to make this relationship work. You need to trust in that.
