When push comes to shove, you cleverly start to plan your escape route. You don't necessarily enjoy direct confrontation unless it is done in the spirit of mutual respect. However, there may be an irrepressible emotional issue that ripples to the surface today. Whether or not it's a smart idea to pursue resolution doesn't seem to matter because you're ready to rumble. Don't be the victim of circumstance; use your powers of self-restraint to avoid an unnecessary meltdown. Sometimes the best offense is to just walk away.

Make a clean break
Your love and social lives might feel like more stress than they are worth this month. A heady Lunar Eclipse on April 15 will likely bring tension between you and a pal to culmination. It appears you and this friend have been on the outs for quite some time, growing apart or fighting more than usual.
While you're not one to harbor bitterness, and you may prefer a clean break, this time around it might not be as easy to remove yourself from this alliance. The two of you may be connected to a larger group or involvement and will need to figure out a way to work around each other. This may pull on you and test your relationship to other mutual friends. The best advice is to avoid gossiping to other buddies about the bad blood between you and this soon to be "ex" friend. Between April 14-16, in particular, you'll want to be careful not to put your foot in your mouth!
Your love life might also feel stressed during this time. Let's face it, these days you may not be having much fun in bed. It seems like your sexual frustration will hit a peak mid-month as well. You and your lover will need to work through the problem, or you will likely decide that this romance is no longer viable.
The good news this month is that a personal breakthrough is coming your way. On April 29, you might decide it's time to enlist the help of an expert to help you work through your "stuff." This might be a counselor, hypnotherapist or another professional you trust. Change begins inside, and by month's end you're ready to dig deep.
Minor matters, major headaches
April starts with the Sun in assertive Aries and your 11th House of Groups, which either kicks up competition with colleagues or inspires you to initiate new projects. Your communicative planet Mercury then enters Aries on April 7, sparking dynamic discussions and bright ideas. One challenge, though, is that others might not know when you're teasing and when you're being serious. A big dose of diplomacy and sensitivity to others' feelings can smooth out potential rough spots.
Two wrongs don't make it right
Your love life AND your social life might be extra difficult this month, much to your frustration. Mars continues to travel retrograde in your romance sector, and it will be involved in a rare, quite stressful configuration for most of April called a Cardinal Grand Cross. In this pattern, four planets will engage in conflict-producing squares all at the same time, creating a feeling of boxed-in energy. In your case, the points of greatest tension will involve giving and receiving love, as well as intimacy and your shared resources with a mate.
