Love - Romantic
For single Rams, April begins with a bang, as you find out that too much of a good thing isn't always great. Before you indulge in any more late nights out or Internet dating binges, take a little time off for you. By the 4th and 5th, things are back on track as you find more balance. The time you take for yourself only deepens your affection for each other, and strengthens your independence. The 11th and 12th offer great news on the romance front, as you're able to say what's on your mind without stepping on any toes. It's important that you get this off your chest. The 14th, 15th, and 16th are all about staying in, enjoying each other's company and saving a little cash. You don't always have to go out on fancy dates to get closer. Your creativity with each other can make a simple night in fun and indulgent. By the 21st, you're willing to make some compromises in the name of love. Who doesn't love a good love story? Yours is one for the ages as you show once and for all that you've got each other's backs, no matter what happens. That's true love.
Business - Money
The month begins with potential reward for previous efforts. Then heads up! Knowing that you aren't one to rest on your laurels, to accelerate your career on April 2nd, 3rd, and 4th be a bit more outward. You could seem indifferent otherwise. If the opportunity arises, as it might the first week in the month, don't get in the middle of a scrap. Playing the role of mediator gets the right attention now. There could be a nice surprise, perhaps a new project, on April 6th. Through the 8th, the wise approach is a cautious mind and careful words. April 13th, reread all of the above and double your efforts. Persistence produces results. April 17th is your lucky day this month. On April 18th the New Aries Moon is symbolic of putting the past out of the picture. In this light getting bogged down by minutiae, you get nothing done at all. April 20th and 21st, write things down and avoid temporary absentmindedness. You could be in the process of making a few major career maneuvers as the month comes to an end. The good news is that several previous barriers could disappear. Get ready to show off your strong communication powers next month.
