Horoscope for the Week: April 2, 2021

Horoscope for the Week:  April 2, 2021

Tip of the Week:
The Moon in its last quarter phase is also noteworthy as it forms a conjunction with Pluto activating a new cycle that will trigger the growing tension between establishment authority and the growing revolutionary rise linked to Jupiter and Saturn.
Mercury entering Aries on April 5th is perhaps the biggest event this week. Its journey through Pisces has perhaps proven peaceful and relaxing, but not very motivating. Because Mercury travels so fast and, due to its lightweight nature in terms of its transiting affect, its impact may not always be very evident. However, because it is entering fiery, impulsive, pioneering and expressive Aries and joining forces with Sun, Venus, Chiron and the major asteroid Ceres, its influence will indeed prove measurable. As well, with the Lunar North Node in Gemini, which Mercury is the ruling planet of and with Mars, the ruler of Aries, in Gemini, Mercury entering the first sign of the zodiac will take  on that much more punch  and impact.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Spring is here and the rising feeling it is bringing is activating you both inside and out. With Mercury entering Aries, you will feel like you are coming out of a dream that held on well past the alarm. By early next week, you will feel the ignition and this burst of energy will increase steadily. Make time for friend time and networking for best results.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Ironically, all this Aries energy may not have the same effect on you as for many others since the line-up will all occur in your solar zone of retreat and escapism. However, it can be applied to dreaming-up schemes and plans. You could also be productive behind the scenes in terms of preparations. Use this time to think carefully and strategically.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Mercury entering Aries will add to a restless mood that has been building these past few weeks. Positively, it will lead to assertive action. Yet, if blocked for any reason, you could become increasingly moody and rebellious. If this occurs, check-in to see if the limitations are originating from your own attitude and interpretations. If so, change your mind.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
A series of fresh starts and initiatives in your public and/or professional life should be evident by now. These will continue this week and will build towards an even bigger boost with the Aries New Moon next weekend. In some respects, the destiny flow is guiding you to surrender. Alternately, you feel bound and determined to take new leads.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
In the bigger picture, you have entered an expansive cycle that also includes whole new cycle of commitment. It does involve some technical learning and experience. You have probably been required to do some research and the going may be slower than expected or seemingly blocked altogether. Currently, seeing a bigger picture and breaking through barriers may be necessary.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
You have entered a transformational cycle. This process will continue well into April and will also deepen. There is a strong emphasis on your career. Mercury in Pisces has probably not made it easy to focus, but that is about to shift. Expect to dive-in deeper based in part on new realizations regarding future directions and complex social realities.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
A strong emphasis on relationships is keeping you busy. This trend will continue. Themes of healing are indicated and may require you to make efforts to identify any blind spots. Knowing your direction may not be evident these days. Yet, one thing is probably clear and this you want to feel free and live on your own terms.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Needs adjustments and perhaps even outright changes in your lifestyle are emphasized now. With your ambitions running strong, these changes may have to do with what is required to realize the successes you desire. You may feel both confident in your abilities, yet also intimidated. Your willingness to give more than you might usually is probably necessary.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You have entered a cycle that can be described as sporting and playful. However, it could also manifest as new dramas to contend with. Both possibilities do depend on your attitude and perspective. You may notice that you have been learning a lot since the year began and the study focus has been both diverse and serious. You want to know and not be told.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The spotlight turns to the home front. A busy time is indicated, yet one that may actually feel extra satisfying. Your sights are set on the future and you are eager to increase your lot, yet this requires focus and investment. Bringing your dreams down to earth is requiring you visualize what you want with emphasis on the finer details.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
An information war is underway and you may notice that you are in warrior mode. S expansive as you feel on one hand, your mood is sober and realistic on the other. You may feel burdened by circumstances yet are determined to push through obstacles. This requires discipline and a strategic focus and you are on board with both, or perhaps should be…
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
Although you do feel ambitious of late, you are also happy to advance at a steady pace, what might be described as ‘slow but sure.’ Yet, it is this very steadiness that is supporting you to get a lot done. Much of the work is occurring behind the scenes and ideally includes a follow-through focus on projects initiated in the past. Either way, circumstances are pushing you to dig deep.
