This month for Libra’s is ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS. Friends, co-workers, clients, business partners, romantic partners or interests will take center stage. Topics like finding clarity about where you stand with people important to you, your relationship to them, and how it is best to move forward with re-connecting, collaborating, committing, or splitting will all take major focus at this time as retrograde energies bring back issues from the past and test previous decisions and commitments.
Alternatively, fun, romance, and flow could return to relationships in which they had become absent or challenged, as the retrograde energies could also bring happiness back from the past.
If important decisions and agreements, or commitments come up, feel into holding off on a final agreement or action until later in April and even the early part of May as the retrograde energies will be lighter at those time. If a decision has to be made, consider a ‘bridge’ decision or agreement, where you create a temporary agreement that will be reconsidered and shifted soon. Commitments and decisions made now or previously will be heavily tested over the rest of the year and the tests will either further create a strong foundation for moving forward or make it clear that new arrangements have to be made. Another way this energy could manifest is that a decision is made but it may take many months for the full transition to occur.
The reason for more openness in plans and commitments later in the month is because Mercury is retrograde until around April 15th and the post-transit shadow period is strong for most of the rest of the month, starting to wane towards the end of April and finishing its transit completely May 3. To understand Mercury retrograde energies better as you move throughout the time from around March 8th through all of April see my video on the topic.

This sector of the chart also has to do with aesthetics so you may have the urge to decorate, spruce up, or move things around. If you can hold off on bigger purchases until towards the end of April, early May, you will likely have more clarity about what you really want and also the things you buy or changes you make may have a longer shelf-life than if you do them earlier in the month.
For the first 3 or so weeks of April, you can make small and inexpensive purchases keeping in mind that the shelf-life for them will likely be shorter than expected. If you have the money to make bigger purchases and won’t miss the money or be swamped in the financial commitment if your circumstances change in the coming months, then it could be fine to move forward but if you are stretching yourself financially to do something, it may be better to hold off. Also, avoiding big decorating decisions (like paint, furniture, and renovation since those are higher stakes/longer-term commitments that have great odds of being reconsidered soon into the projects).
It is also a great time for entertaining. For most of the month, impromptu and casual events may be better because everyone will be having more changes to their plans making more firm events likely to sparsely attended. For the last week or so of the month, the stars are better for commitments to certain times/places etc.
If you are self-employed and looking for more business, going back to clients from the past may be more fruitful than trying to develop new contacts at this time. Similarly for those who are employed, past ideas, projects, and contacts will usually have more favor now.
People from the past, collaborations, ideas, etc. will likely pop up out of nowhere. Also, your urge to put energy into finding and re-connecting with people from your past may be strong and well-indicated now.
If you are on a budget, into environmentally-friendly focus, or just want to incorporate bonding with your friends, or meeting new friends into your redecorating process, something fun is to have a ‘home item swap party’ with friends. Each person bringing a potluck food/drink item to share and some items from their home that they are done with. Everyone will leave from this gathering with new items without spending any money
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Scorpio Horoscope is more relevant for you.
