Horoscope for the Week: April 21, 2023

Tip of the Week:

The universe has a few little surprises in store for us all this year: a second New Moon in Aries on April 20 which is also a Solar Eclipse followed by Mercury turning retrograde on the 21st. Both lunation cycles began with the critical degrees of 0, or the first degree, and 29 degrees, or the last one with both seeds of their respective cycles in Aries, the sign of pioneering initiatives. The influence is further strengthened in complex ways due to the fact that the eclipsed Sun is forming a tight 90-degree angle to Pluto at 0 Aquarius! Anyone with planets or angles in the last couple of degrees of Aries, Cancer Libra and Capricorn or the first couple of degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius is likely to experience a stronger impact than most others. Get ready for some big power plays over the next several weeks specifically, and for the next six months generally.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Yet another series of activations are destined to shift you into high gear. A very proactive cycle with an emphasis on getting to the bottom of things is indicated this week. Supported by a steadily rising ambition and impulse to make changes, you are sure to cause some waves in your circles.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

The Sun now in your sign indicates that you are ready to take new leads. These will become noticeable in your daily rhythms and includes a new scope of interactions with other key players. With your energy levels rising rapidly now, you will be a force to reckon with.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

A busy cycle these past several weeks will continue to percolate. Yet, the opportunity for a bit of retreat time is also on the cosmic itinerary. If you must keep busy, use this time to get things done behind the scenes. With Venus in your sign, aim to express or create an atmosphere of beauty.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

The double Aries impulse is destined to activate new beginnings in your career and/or public life. Mars in your sign all the while is adding to this pioneering impulse and it will continue to do so well into May. This is an expansive time yet is one during which all advances must be earned.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

The fiery impulses of Aries are invariably added heat to your own inner furnace. For you, the activation is to adventure whether literally and physically or intellectually and philosophically. Some degree of searching is likely as you question your reality and decipher your next, best moves.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

The double dip Aries theme is destined to produce a rather deep process of transformation. It includes changes in your usual mode of self-expression, your overall style, and your self-image. Circumstances may also be pushing you to be innovative and even to engage in some measure of self-reinvention.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

New interests and aspirations on relationship fronts are guiding your actions. You may find that you are bolder than usual. Increase and expansion are indicated and you are willing to take a few risks. A spirit of liberation is indicated and could lead you to venture out beyond familiar borders.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Spring fever has a way of seeping deep into your inner recesses and this is likely very true this year. You are in the mood for an adventure. You want to engage and be met. A push and pull factor between cautious restraint and casting all caution to the wind must be reconciled.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

This double dose of Aries is the source of a strong creative impulse. Your desires and ambitions are running deep and strong. A persistent itch to socialize is woven with thoughts about love and perhaps romance too. Seeing yourself and the world and in the world in new ways is a persistent tease.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your core sense of I Am is ruminating regarding that proverbial Shakespearean question: ‘To be or not to be?’ If the answer is affirmative, the next question is how? The simple answer is creatively and strategically. Yet, the time has come for new methods and a learning curve is implied.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Changing circumstances are instigating new thoughts and perspectives. Venus in Gemini is contributing a creative, playful, and passionate impulse. A gentle yet persistent push is required which will become increasingly evident. Replace worry with imagination power that generates productive solutions.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)                

Last month’s New Moon established the ground of the new reality and now this one will push you to follow through with new methods and approaches. Fortunately, your ambitions are rising and Mercury Retrograde stands to work especially well for you to make the most of it.
