Horoscope for the Week:  April 23, 2021

Tip of the Week:
Just hours prior to entering Taurus to join forces with Venus and Uranus, Mercury formed a conjunction with the Sun at 29 Aries, a critical degree, sounding a final bell to awaken anyone still in early spring, clinging to ideals of days gone by. Yes, the world is taking a hard turn under the dawning light of the Aquarian Age, and hardly the last.
Subsequently, a convergence of planets in Taurus will build momentum and form several new conjunctions this week in the sign of the farmer, builder, foundations, and of personal wealth. On April 23, Venus will align with Uranus the same day Mars enters Cancer, to start a complex cycle symbolic of renovations and emotional aggression. On April 24, Mercury will conjunct Uranus and then Venus the following day, followed by the Sun conjunct Uranus on April 30. By April 27, the Moon comes to full in Scorpio, the culmination of the April 12 Aries New Moon which sowed a seed with a revolutionary beat.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
The time has come to establish more solid foundations. Your energy levels will continue to rise this week as your pace comes to cruising speed. The emphasis will turn to home and family, but you are wise to tread softly with loved ones. You may have a reluctance to make changes or adjustments in your career. Yet, you may have difficulty or letting go of the old to make way for the new.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
The stellium of planets forming conjunctions in your sign will activate your resolve to take new initiatives. This momentum will continue for several weeks. Many fresh starts and initiatives will occur before the week is out, leading to a strong assertion of your sense of individuality by next weekend. This is an eventful cycle and hardly a peaceful one, but you are challenged to forge ahead.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Focusing to build a sense of security will take on new momentum this week. You will likely be extra busy behind the scenes and this stands to continue into May. Yet, this is the week you will begin. You may just as easily find yourself huddling-in close to home and entering into a period of retreat; the reverberations of revolutionary impulses slowing with each day.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
A determined push towards creative self-expression will become evident this week. With so many deep changes brewing within, you may wonder where your old self has gone, or is going. Many new perspectives are vying for your attention and you are challenged to keep an open mind, as much as you may otherwise want to. Positively, social and professional opportunities are at play.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
You have begun to see a bigger picture. The results of it are either charging your engines to make some bold moves, especially in your public and professional life. Yet, they could just as well be leading you to want to escape. In these emotionally complex times, both responses are understandable. If you can split the difference you probably will, striking some form of balance between assertion and retreat.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
This stellium of conjunctions in Taurus stand to prove quite inspiring for you, or at least eye-opening. Positively, an emphasis on art and culture will inspire new projects and creative interests. This will depend on your ability to feel confident amidst a complex weave of emotions and your willingness to learn new skills. Perseverance will bring confidence.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
The recent Aries New Moon served to ignite your passions for new encounters and connections. Desires for change and breakthrough were featured and continue to be your hope and prayer. Yet, your success probably depends on your willingness to undergo some measure of change and even transformation. The latter implies internal shifts of your priorities and attitudes.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
A steady flow of changes in your lifestyle and/or daily rhythm are underway. These may be small, yet will be noticeable enough to register. Positively, these are leading you to establish new foundations on relationship fronts. Sharing and exchanging gifts and talents is highlighted. These have the potential to lead you to fruitful connections and the abundance this implies.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Waves of creative inspiration have been flowing your way these past weeks. Now they are beginning to take root in a more practical sense. Business interests will take on added weight and importance. Your biggest challenge stands to be prioritizing and directing your focus to learning new skills. The main thing is that changes in your daily routine lead to increased health.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Getting in touch with your internal fire, your power and drive, has and continues to be a core theme. Now the shift is moving towards creative interests. These will likely include some measure of originality and inventiveness, requiring you to think outside habitual parameters of perception. Forward thinking is implied and may be best achieved by harnessing the talents and resources of others.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
In this age of information wars, you are a warrior. A spirit of vigilance and defiance has been strong but will now require you to make even more efforts to break free of any lingering hesitation or tendencies to procrastinate. Yet, as much as you may yearn for attention, you will also feel shy in the spotlight and avoid the camera’s eye. Expect foundational events to occur this week.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
Financial interests and ambitions are leading you to identify your gifts and talents. Refining existing abilities and opening yourself to learn new modes and qualities of self-expression is indicated. Initiative is a keyword in this regard so be willing to make fresh starts or at least to try new angles of approach with your existing foray of skills, especially where financial returns are likely.
