If retrograde season almost drove you off the ledge, you're not alone, Virgo – it was a deeply challenging time for all signs. But as always when your ruling planet goes out of phase, you feel it the most. Here's some gorgeous news for the upcoming month: Mercury Retrograde ends on the 3rd. Yes, all the tech breakdowns, miscommunications, and cancelled plans will fade into history. This will have the strongest impact on your most intimate relationships in the next few weeks – expect any recent rows with your lover to make sense. If an ex popped back into your life in April, you'll know if it was indeed meant to be or if the breakup will hold. There's a super intense Full Moon on the 10th that will insure that you state the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Yes, Virgo – this lunation asks you to bare your soul and speak your mind, no holds barred. The Sun moves into Gemini on the 20th, ushering in four weeks of amazing auspiciousness for your career. This peaks at the New Moon on the 25th, so get busy making a list of everything you want to accomplish within the next six months. If you can dream it in excruciating detail, you can do it IRL.

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.
