Horoscope for the Week:  April 16, 2021

Tip of the Week:
Spring enters its mid-month period this week. First Venus and then followed by the Sun, Taurus time will seem to start early for those sensitive to such timing shifts. Given the larger backdrop of planetary influences, the overall atmosphere certainly reveals the revolutionary beat and pulse of our times. Aries is the sign of the pioneering leader, and Mars can be described as the verb in the sentence, the principle of action. Together, they manifest as the warrior principle with all of its pointed, energetic, assertive and aggressive resolve combined.
Taurus follows-up with added determination to forge ahead and to push through any opposition. Where Aries represents germination and sprouts breaking through the crust, Taurus time reveals plants growing and gaining strength and establishing a foundation able to sustain continued growth. Nature works this way, yet human nature includes ego and free will and this is where things get both interesting from a whole new perspective, yet also chaotic and complex.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
The garden, the land or nature in general will call you out even louder this week. You will take delight in the blossoms and the birds, bees and all the rest. Practical matters will also assume more of your priority and includes an emphasis on investments. This trend will continue and grow throughout the month and into May, leading you into much deeper places yet.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Venus and Sun entering your sign will activate a whole new level of leadership and charge. Already others see you as a person ready and willing to take a revolutionary lead. Although not easy, you are determined to plow ahead with the finesse of a bulldozer. Keeping the peace has perhaps become a thing of the past, leaving friends to guess and wonder.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
While you were quick to grab hold of spring season early, you will not find yourself happy to simply linger in its warmth and beauty. It is not so much a matter of ‘doing’ as it is one of ‘being’. Yet, you are keen to learn and come to new realizations. Going at your own pace is your main specification which should amount to steady progress.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
March certainly described your pace and intention, and while this drive to enter new territory,  especially in your public and professional life does continue, you are  happy to direct the focus to more  joyful and creative activities again. This does not mean you will be idle, as a good portion of your focus is upon preparing for the future. Yet, you want to play and visit too.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
You have been aspiring to see a bigger picture. Along the way, your sense of ethics and principles, your overall philosophy of life has been under review. While you are hardly in a mood to surrender, you are determined to decipher how you can best adapt, as well as fight against trends that are an affront to your sense of what is right and true.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Looking back over the past few weeks, you will notice that some distinct and deep changes have occurred within you and your attitude going forward. In some respects, this process is still underway. It will shift this week, however, and lead you to embrace the beauty of the season and simply be for a while. But act now and don’t put it off as matters will intensify soon.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Shifts and changes on relationship fronts have and continue to inspire you to engage. These fresh starts come with the season, yet may prove longer lasting. Positively, you are ready for a deeper dive and this could well include love interests and perhaps romance too. With your passions steadily deepening you push for fulfillment and pleasure.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Fresh starts in your daily rhythm and routine are by now underway. Getting these going remains a focus, yet you are wise to take the initiative now if your ambitions continue to linger as thoughts and plans. The emphasis will shift to others and on both fronts your focus includes healthy improvements. Your resolve is deep but your methods may require review.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You have been energetically and boldly tackling new creative projects. Some of these have likely lead to exchanges with others requiring diplomacy and negotiation. This theme of focus will continue this week, but you will be ready to forge ahead and with impassioned zeal very soon. Get ready; realizing dreams will take on a whole new attitude.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
A whole new resolve has been awakening within you. Your determination to work harder is indicated. How you proceed now is extra important. In some respects, you may notice that you have changed and you may not even recognize yourself as the person you once were. The main question is: are you happy with the new you? If not, this is your cue.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
Your perceptions are getting sharper by the day. This is not to say that they are all accurate and true from a purely objective perspective, however. So, you are wise to honor what you believe, yet also be willing to try to see as others do too. Some live by survival instinct, some purely by rationale, others by empathy and some by varying degrees of intuition. Understand to see more clearly.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
Looking back over the past few weeks, there has probably been a mixture of fresh starts, endings and new orientations too. These new attitudes and approaches will take on increased momentum this week and next even more so. For now, keep digging to get even clearer on what you deem important and how you plan to proceed.
