Horoscope for the Week:  April 30, 2021
Tip of the Week:
Back-to-back conjunctions in Taurus are a central theme this week. First, Mercury aligned with Venus for their 2nd of 4 conjunctions on April 25. It might be imagined that these two inner planets form conjunctions all the time, but their rhythmic, cyclic patterns are quite irregular. The main point, in this instance, is that this conjunction is destined to stimulate a whole new round of critical thinking.
The other is Sun conjunct Uranus which is an annual event with it advancing each year about 8 degrees. This time it is at 10 Taurus and occurs on April 30. This degree also reveals an activation of a whole new level of critical thinking. So, both conjunctions share a key common denominator linked to the influence of Virgo. Critical thinking includes challenging what we have learned with opposing evidence and questioning the reliability of our sources. Genuinely thinking critically is actually a rarer inclination and ability than is commonly assumed, and may indeed be deemed an art.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You have entered an industrious cycle. This may simply find you in your own yard cleaning-up the winter residue.  However, Mars in Cancer indicates the possibility of a much deeper dig. Renovations are even likely. These may be directed towards self-improvement as well as external tasks. The New Moon on May 11 will also push you to lively discussions and activate new perspectives.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
A mounting emphasis of planets in your sign will have a strong activating effect on you. As if suddenly, you will feel more energetic, enthusiastic, bold and invigorated. An emphasis on creative activity is strong and you may even come up with new innovative methods and even inventions.  This beat and pulse will increase all month due to the approaching New Moon in your sign.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Shifts of perception are underway. Outer personalities and circumstances are shaking you out of your comfort zone. Positively, you welcome the push. However, the exact opposite may also be true.  Either way, you are getting a reminder that neither you nor anyone sees reality so much as ‘it is’ as you and they ‘are’. Awakening to the realization that perception is conditioned will help you to see more clearly.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
A steady flow of change in your public and professional life continues. Yet, the shift has advanced to encompass your friends and social network in general. You may notice that your focus has been sharper of late and now has shifted to be steadier as well. In the deeper end, returns for past efforts are coming in, yet you must also contend with deep changes underway within.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Circumstances and key players have been activating you to see a bigger picture. This trend will continue but is already shifting to emphasize more practical applications, as well. This shift to the practical side includes financial realities and this focus will deepen. Positively, your social outreach is expanding and you are committed to making any extra efforts required to perpetuate this trend.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Some rather deep shifts and what may actually be deemed transformations in your overall approach and lifestyle in general have been steadily percolating. These will go to a new level of depth this week which will activate your orientation to more clearly and fully identify with what you deem to be true.  Where others do not agree, you will seek diplomatic solutions.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Fresh starts on relationship fronts have been keeping you busy. Yet, your focus has shifted to deepen your research to be extra sure of what you are thinking and feeling. You are willing to invest more time, energy and perhaps money too, but you want to be more certain of what and who you are getting involved with. To this end, you will reach for new insights and to new sources.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Exercising a more constructively critical approach to your overall lifestyle continues. Deciphering what is and what is not working so well and where improvements are possible is on your mind. These inclinations may be inspired by, but are not solely linked to the changing season. Positively, you are excited to direct a creative focus to constructive ends.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
An inspirational cycle continues. It has supported you to open your mind to many new perspectives and possibilities and this trend continues. The shift now is towards more practical applications and this focus will both continue and deepen over the coming weeks. With your ambitions running higher than usual, you may even find yourself feeling more bold to look harder in places than you were willing to previously.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The flow has directed you to really get in touch with your sense of authenticity of late. Who are you really, what do you truly feel and want, and what must you do to take realistic steps? You have likely been working extra hard to get answers to these and other such questions. Contending with the objections of others is the next phase coming in fast now.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
The flow of knowledge is accelerating and you have likely had to work that much harder to keep up. Positively, you feel excited by the steady flow. Yet, now you will have to work harder to digest the implications of what you have been learning. Knowledge can indeed prove to be empowering, yet it comes with added responsibility, as well.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
A steady flow of new initiatives have and continue to keep you busy. In fact, the scope is increasing and you must contend with even more fronts now and this trend will continue and deepen. Building upon new perceptions, concepts and realizations is the real task and this will require creative intensity. Fortunately, those very influences are flowing in quickly now.
