April is a tense month all around, but the third week brings some major off-the-chart astrological aspects -- and they're likely to hit home in more ways than one.

Just as an intense, revolutionary, generational aspect called the "Grand Cardinal Cross" begins to heat up past the point of no return, our family lives are about to get whole lot more complicated. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, doesn't know when to say no -- it's like the proverbial balloon filling with air until it pops.

Jupiter has been in Cancer, the sign of home and family, since last June. That isn't a problem in itself -- but when you put it together with a lot of other hotheaded planets all at the same time, everything could seem to erupt into chaos without notice.

Exacerbating the aspect is Mars, the planet of war, currently sitting uncomfortably in Libra, the sign of diplomacy. Mars doesn't like to be told how to manage its affairs, and because it's in retrograde motion right now, the Red Planet is lashing out like never before. Mars threads the needle that is the Grand Cross -- and makes it explosive.

The Mars-Jupiter square is exact on April 22, but the entire week, from the 20th on, is ripe for confrontation. "Check yourself before you wreck yourself" should be your mantra now. Being reactive is the worst possible way to handle relationships with your family or anyone you encounter in line at the supermarket.

We are all going to be on edge this week, so try not to add your own fuel to the fire. When you want to erupt in anger, instead take a deep, long, relaxing breath, and remind yourself that May will be a better month. Exude love, even -- and especially -- when you want to erupt in anger.
