Mercury is a flexible and adaptable planet, and because of its versatile nature, money may be coming in, but also leaving. Add some cushion to your budget if possible.
On April 6, the Full Moon in Libra lights up the relationship sector of your chart, bringing shifts and changes to important unions in your life. You may be signing a contact or finishing one. You could feel torn between asserting your needs and prioritizing the needs of someone else in your life.
Venus, the planet of love and luxury, enters Gemini on April 10, encouraging you to speak from your heart. Write a love letter or two because your words may be more affectionate than normal.
