April 2012 Virgo Love Horoscope

Tackle your issues

April begins with the Sun in your 8th House of Intimacy, which is likely to bring more intensity to your personal life. If you're in a relationship, conflict can arise out of restlessness. Facing the challenge to address difficult issues may be necessary to regain trust, but it is also a way to put more passion into your partnership. If you're single, this transit (which lasts through April 19) can prod you to take more risks in approaching someone new. This could attract some impatient or aggressive types, or if you're lucky it will draw exciting individuals who stir strong feelings of attraction.

On April 4 your brainy ruling planet Mercury turns forward after three weeks of traveling in reverse. Any delays in getting messages or making up your mind should lessen in the days and weeks to come. If you've been waiting to approach someone or to discuss a serious matter, you'll be ready then.

On April 13 aggressive Mars also turns direct, ending its backward cycle in your sign. This, too, should liberate some energy, allowing you to let go of entanglements or complete tasks so that you are able to act with greater personal freedom. You're less likely to be in an accommodating mood then because the warrior planet's forward shift in Virgo spurs you to take the initiative in your personal life. As always, a critical issue is to take any criticism of yourself or others in a positive direction, so that instead of simply finding faults you are actively fixing them.
