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.

Men's egos are wired differently than women's. They're much more sensitive and defensive. For instance women have no problem apologizing for a mistake whereas trying to get a man to cough out the words “I'm sorry” without resorting to waterboarding is nearly impossible. This is why it's important to be supportive and welcoming on Tuesday when a penitent lover or spouse re-emerges from his man cave. He knows that he did wrong, but don't confront him with that or rub his nose in it. Be gentle and he'll cop to his crankiness before too long.
