Watch for a lucky break around the April 4 Full Moon. Don't worry. Expect great things, even love. You may not win the lottery, but you may at least escape catching that cold or flu that everyone else has. At the April 18 New Moon, someone may want you to deal with something that's more than a minor favor. Be practical and do what you can if you think it's appropriate, or sympathetically pass if you think it's unreasonable or beyond your abilities. Have no regrets. April 29 and April 30 are prime days to get informed and show off your smarts.
Love - Romantic
Virgo natives are known for their choosiness in love. But singles may find that this isn't serving them these days. On the 2nd and 3rd, try chatting up someone you would not ordinarily talk to. You may be surprised by what you find. Coupled Virgos are happy in love on the 9th and 10th. Even when external forces and unhappy friends swirl around you, you're both happy to be outside those little dramas, and are simply grateful for one another. Showing your partner how much you care is crucial around the 18th and 19th, when job and other stresses may become overwhelming. Not that either one of you wants to talk about work on "your" time, but allowing a little venting may make way for greater happiness afterward. The 22nd, 23rd, and 24th offer a new window of intimacy for the two of you. Where would you like to be in six months, or a year? Setting relationship goals doesn't have to be unrealistic or selfish, they are healthy for the two of you. Bettering communication is the first order of business. By the 28th and 29th, you're well on your way to make that happen. Find time to celebrate your successes on the 30th.
Business - Money
You begin the month with the lucky day bonus of excellent timing with odds working in your favor. April's Eclipse creates an "aha!" moment of awareness that, while it is admirable to have one's destiny deeply rooted, the spirit of adventure (taking a risk, gambling/odds) goes six-feet under. Sometimes it is good to jump at the chance to show off talents and prove oneself. Here's an opportunity: April 14th is communication-plus time. Talk to people. Not only get your ideas out there, but also see what sweeps you up in the excitement. Often we are anxious when things test our skills, but we can get bored when our expertise exceeds challenges. April 20st, 21nd, 22nd, and 23rd celebrate the rebirth of assertiveness and effective salesmanship. Find your voice and let your strength of character announce itself. April 28th and 29th are additional lucky days. Send your resume out if job-hunting. You know you can network within your workplace. If you don't have any, keep a sharp eye out for mentors and connections now. Changes are in store in May, and they might have something to do with the powers that were that could be another chance to prove yourself.
