Daily Love Horoscope: April 18, 2023 | Your Zodiac

As Aries season draws to a close, our romantic lives become volatile as we’ll soon witness when the Moon forms a sextile formation with Venus at 11:46 AM and later squares Mars at 6:16 PM. In the morning, 90s rom-com is the theme as we cuddle our partners until noon like there’s no other people in the world but the two of you. At night, however, tensions will run high as we get as impatient as ill-tempered Mars. Our moods do a complete 360 as we get easily provoked at the smallest things, even at the ones that never bothered as before.

These hot and cold celestial motions today are a little hard to navigate, which is why below, we’ll be discussing how your individual sign can survive the day.


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries, your inner romantic is craving for some words of affirmation today when the Moon in your 1st house of the self meets Venus in your 3rd house of communication. You cuddle up next to your S.O. and hope they’ll whisper sweet nothings into your ear. You tell them how bad your day has been so you could feel the comfort of their words, as if it’s a warm hug engulfing your body. If you’re single, yearning for someone who would do the same for you might cause a bit of loneliness. Later on in the day, try not to talk about family matters with your loved ones because when the Moon squares Mars in your 4th house of family, it might strike a chord when a certain family issue is mentioned.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

A strong desire to satisfy your inner child will overcome you today, Taurus. When the Moon in your 12th house of the subconscious meets Venus in your 2nd house of money, you start discerning the patterns in your childhood that you have never been aware of before. This makes you want to give yourself things you never had as a child. Because you’re not usually a very affectionate person, giving people gifts has been one of your love languages—and now, you’re practicing it on yourself, too. When the Moon gets into a fight with Mars later on in the day, misunderstandings might arise between you and the people around you. They might tell you it’s stupid to desire “childish” things you have no need for, and you will feel attacked by this. Try not to recoil too harshly, Taurus, let yourself calm down first before you respond, or you might regret the words that will come out of your mouth later on. 


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini, you might find yourself getting closer with friends today when the Moon in your 11th house of friendships blows kisses to Venus in your 1st house of the self. You might feel that you have a better sense of self-worth when you’re with your friends, because they bring out the best in you. This deep connection with friends might make an insecure partner jealous, but know that the right person would understand that you have a life outside of the relationship as well. When the Moon challenges headstrong Mars later today, money might get in the way of you hanging out with friends. They might want to go out and let loose, but you wouldn’t have the finances. Not to worry, Gemini, because the right kind of people won’t pressure you into things you’re not yet ready for, and will not shame you for wanting to save money.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer, when the Moon in your 10th house of career meets Venus in your 12th house of the subconscious, you’re met with the realization that your self worth has subconsciously been highly dependent on your work and career. This means you’ve been working hard to really feel emotionally satisfied, but when you don’t meet your set goals in time, you feel easily disappointed in yourself. This creates some conflict when the Moon fights with impatient Mars in your 1st house of the self, and reality suddenly pans out of your tunnel vision and you see all other areas of your life that you’ve been neglecting in your quest to succeed in your career, including your love life. A word of advice: work-life balance is important for any career-oriented person, Cancer. Find that balance and everything else shall easily follow.


Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leo, when the Moon in your 9th house of wisdom meets Venus in your 11th house of friends, you find that spending time with your friends opens up your mind in ways you thought it’s incapable of being opened. Your friends’ capability to meet your intellect makes you develop a stronger bond with them, making you love them a little more every time you connect. This makes the friendship feel so effortless, because there’s minimal need to explain yourself every time you talk to them. When the Moon meets aggressive Mars later today, you might be met with the sudden fear of losing them. Don’t worry, Leo, every time we love someone a little more, the fear of losing them grows a little more as well, so don’t beat yourself up for feeling this way. 


Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You’re a career-oriented person, Virgo, and you’ve always worked hard in order to achieve your goals and meet your vision. Today, when the Moon in your 8th house of intimacy gives Venus in your 10th house of career a warm embrace, you realize an unexpected bonus of being a career-person—it makes you more desirable. The high status brought about by your hard work makes people perceive you in a high regard and, consequently, makes you more desirable in the eyes of the public. However, this is a double-edged sword as well, because even if it does make you more desirable, it will be harder to find a partner whom you perceive as an equal because of the power imbalance between you and your underclassmen. You might perceive having this kind of reputation can be a good thing if you’re single and looking for love, but it can pose a little conflict if you’re in a relationship when your partner feels threatened by others who want you. When the Moon fights with Mars later today, you might want to be careful, as some friends might be jealous of your success and want to bring you down.


Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Libra, the Moon in your 7th house of relationships cuddling Venus in your 9th house of adventure encourages you to be adventurous in the romantic department today. If you’re single, you might want to get out there and mingle with other people, whether you intend to find a long-term partner or simply date casually. If you’re in a relationship, going on dates and visiting places you’ve never been before is a good idea to replenish the romantic energy in your relationship. When the Moon gets in a fight with ill-tempered Mars later today, you might start worrying that focusing on your love life is getting in the way of your career, but don’t fret. As long as you know how to establish a healthy work-life balance, you’re all good. 


Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

A little romance is good for your mental health today, Scorpio. When the Moon in your 6th house of health meets Venus in a warm, mystical embrace in your 8th house of intimacy, you might want to go out on a date with your partner or simply spend the day together at home to replenish the energy you exhausted in other areas of your life. You might be pressured to go on a romantic adventure right now, but you don’t have to do that if you’re not ready yet. Simply being by your partner’s side is often enough, especially when you’re struggling. If you’re single, romanticizing even the most mundane parts of your life could be the thing that could turn your bad week into a good one. There doesn’t have to be great achievements all the time for life to warrant romanticization, Scorpio, so view your life in rose-tinted lenses for as much as you like.


Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) 

Sagittarius, you’re romanticizing the little things in life in order to be a little happier every day, and it’s doing really good things to your mental health. However, you might sometimes wonder if you’re being delusional by viewing your world in rose-colored glasses when several things are going wrong in your life, but life doesn’t have to be perfect to be romanticized. Of course, you just have to remember to be realistic when you encounter problems and not just practice toxic positivity when such problems emerge. 


Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) 

Capricorn, you miss the feeling of coming home. The sensation of being engulfed in your lover’s warm embrace, the smell of mother’s cooking, the voice of your little sister calling you to come down when dinner’s ready. In fact, you miss these so much that the nostalgia has made you romanticize home. If you’re in a relationship, an insecure partner might feel like you’re putting too much attention on your family and not enough for them, but a secure partner will know that they are family, too, and won’t hold your longing against you. 


Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Have you been having problems at home, Aquarius? If so, good communication is the key. Being passive aggressive, projecting your anger to people who don’t deserve it are not good coping mechanisms. The proper way to resolve the issue is to talk with the other party which, in this case, is your family. You might be worried that talking about controversial things can damage your mental health, but if your family can be reasoned out with, you really have nothing to be afraid of. 


Pisces (February 19  – March 20) 

Pisces, you’ve been blessed by the universe with material resources recently, and now you’re using this to show your loved ones just how much you love them. Even if you’re not good with words or expressing big emotions such as that of love, you still have other ways to let them know you love them, which include giving gifts. Later today, you might start doubting whether or not the same could be applied to romantic love, which for you, is a little complicated. A word of advice: don’t overdo it. People appreciate affection outside of material possessions as well, Pisces.
