Retrograde season is here, and this April, it's not even close to kidding. This month will see more planets in backwards motion than normal, including your ruler Mercury – the usual suspect. It begins with Venus and Jupiter already traveling backwards, and is followed by Saturn turning tail on the 6th. Mercury joins the party on the 9th, and will spend the next three weeks touring your house of long-distance travel. If you have any trips planned, it's wise to triple-check your itinerary and expect delays. Give yourself extra time, and then add a bit more for good measure. The Full Moon comes to your money zone on the 11th, bringing closure to a financial issue that you first became aware of six-months ago. Luckily Venus goes direct on the 15th, bringing at least a bit of clarity to your love life and relationships in general. However yet ANOTHER planet goes retrograde on the 20th – Pluto. Forward motion returns to the scene close to the end of the month, when the New Moon arrives on the 26th. Although you should avoid any major launches (or declarative sentences for that matter) you can map out your six-month strategy now, and plan to begin executing it in May.

Love is here this month but it's totally unclear if it's here to stay, Virgo. Before you make another move, just thank the stars that eclipse season is over and done with – you've had enough of having your relationships rocked and rolled and torn asunder. What you do have to contend with this month is Venus Retrograde, starting on 4 March. Although it's not nearly as dramatic as an eclipse, this phase, lasting until mid-April, can take you down Memory Lane as far as your partnerships go. As the planet of romance trips the light fantastic through your intimacy zone, you might find yourself recalling past lovers, and wondering what they're up to right now. The next thing you know you're totally Facebook stalking him – only to see that he just messaged you. In other words: watch out for what you wish for, because you may not be ready for it. The most intense moment of the month comes on the 12th, when the Full Moon lands in your own sign. This annual event is dramatic, but it can bring rich rewards in all areas of your life. Think back to your last birthday – have any of your wishes come true? Now's the moment to take the next steps to make sure they do – before your next birthday. Spring arrives on the 20th, bringing promises not just of flowers, but of amazing, toe-curling sex. Yes, Virgo – the Sun will be in your house of intimacy for the next month. In fact when the New Moon lands in this part of your chart on the 27th, you can ask the stars for exactly what you want in a lover – down to hair color and height. Try writing down your perfect fantasy and see what happens.
