Weekly Horoscopes for 4/8-4/14, 2019
Aries- To paraphrase a well known classic, “It is the best of times, it is the worst of times.” As the Sun passes through your sign to align with Jupiter in your House of Philosophy it brings high hopes, while at the same time it is also squaring Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career to bring both challenges and change. The presence of Mercury, Venus, and Neptune behind the scenes could contribute to either your illusions or enlightenment, depending of course on whether your sense of self comes from within or if it is merely a reflection of the current fashions and judgments of others. Uranus in your House of Self Worth is a knee jerk reaction waiting to happen, which Mars in your House of Communication could turn into a notorious incident if you’re so inclined. As the Lunar Arc travels across your Houses of Foundation and Creativity, try to see the forest for the trees when it comes to your actions and consider the saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Salud!
Taurus- Jupiter going station/retrograde in your House of Transformation and aligning with the Sun behind the scenes could mean that the initial excitement of a recent situation is about to turn into a considerably less glorious responsibility in the near future. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy have been trying to tell you, “be careful what you wish for,” but since you’ve gotten what you wanted now you’re going to need them to be your maintenance team. Just make sure you don’t allow Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Groups to make you too much of a doormat. Just because some folks told you what you wanted to hear to get you interested, doesn’t mean they can take advantage of you once you’ve signed on the dotted line. In the meantime, I hope you like surprises because Uranus in your sign should be bringing home some doozies.. When all is said and done though, Mars in your House of Self Worth could be your best friend right now, as he gives you all the mojo you’ll likely need to swim this “English Channel” you have waiting.
Gemini- Mars entering your sign will likely provide a burst of energy, the question is where will you direct this power? Jupiter going station/retrograde in your House of Relationships and aligning with the Sun in your House of Dreams could be trying to tell you to pay attention to an association with someone important that you’ve let fall by the wayside. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation have been trying to warn you of coming changes for a while, but now that they’re also aligning with both Mercury and Venus in your House of Public Image and Career make sure you don’t take anything for granted in regards to your future prospects and/or your reputation. “What have you done for me lately” may sound callous, but at least now others will know what it felt like when they blew you off. Payback can be a b*tch, so get ready to move ahead.
Cancer- As the Sun passes through your House of Career and aligns with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work, expect some of the recent drama on the job to subside. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Partnerships has likely changed your tune regarding how much responsibility you’re willing to accept without knowing what’s in it for you, while at the same time Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Philosophy have inspired you to realize the difference between what you can change and what’s supposed to change you. Unfortunately, Uranus in your House of Groups will likely bring more lessons along this line as some unexpected craziness enters into your sphere. Go with these annoying developments as best you can and try not to get too caught up in thinking you could have avoided any of it; Uranus just rolls that way. Mars behind the scenes could inspire you to do some research and explore new possibilities, so try and look at this new motivation as the antidote for Uranus and go for it.
Leo- If you have been harboring any aspirations to do something different with your life, the Sun aligning with Jupiter going station/retrograde in your House of Creativity could mean that this is the time when that hope either dies forever, or else you finally get your ass in gear and decide to do something about it. With Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in watery Pisces and your House of Death and Transformation, you may have come to this realization in a painful way, nonetheless, you’ve seen what is necessary, now what do you want to do next? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Routines are there if you have to figure out how to make time for what you’d like to do, no matter how busy (or tired) you profess to be, while Uranus in your House of Career represents the part of you that’s “mad as hell and isn’t going to take it anymore.” As Mars traverses your House of Dreams dare to believe that you may be as talented as you’ve always dreamed…Now prove it!
Virgo- If you have been contemplating any home improvements or are even considering moving, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Home aligning with the Sun in your House of Transformation could mean that this is the time to either restructure or change your humble abode. Saturn and Pluto together in your House of Creativity is like having your own private contractors, so trust your ideas on what you want, but more importantly, believe that you can make it happen. Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Partnership could indicate that you may need to seek outside help in manifesting your visions and stop looking for approval from an unsupportive partner. With this in mind, let Uranus in your House of Philosophy inspire you to do something different than what hasn’t worked in the past and let Mars in your House of Public Image show the world you can be a mover and shaker on your own terms.
Libra- As Jupiter in your House of Communication goes station/retrograde and aligns with the Sun in your House of Partnerships, you may end up hearing from someone out of the past who can help you with a current problem. Saturn and Pluto at the bottom of your chart have been setting the stage for some big changes, however, sometimes auspicious circumstances can sneak in the back door instead of barging through the front. Mercury, Venus, and Neptune are all passing through your House of Work so let yourself be influenced by unexpected circumstances; you may be a lot better at improvising and flying by the seat of your pants than you ever suspected. Uranus in your House of Transformation and Mars in your House of Long Distance Communication may help to transport you to the exact place outside of your expectations that you need to be in order to succeed. Go with the flow!
Scorpio- Jupiter going retrograde this week and aligning with the Sun in your House of Health could make you feel overwhelmed if you have been under the weather. Mars in your House of Transformation should help you to keep up with all these new changes, although as he starts to approach a square with a stellium of planets in Pisces you may be longing for an escape. Where to go? Uranus in your House of Relationships may see you receiving an unexpected (and much needed) invitation from a friend to get away from your life for a while. You may not be able to go to Bali, but anywhere that would bring you to a different place in your head would be a welcome respite. Bon voyage!
Sagittarius- Jupiter going station/retrograde this week in your sign and aligning with the Sun in your House of Fun may be trying to tell you it’s time for a vacation. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth have been keeping your nose to the grindstone forever, but with Mercury, Venus, and Neptune crossing the bottom of your chart it looks like it’s time for you to sneak out for a little par-ty, if you get my drift. If you don’t, Uranus going through your House of Work and Mars going through your House of Enemies could see some crap go down at work that will find you saying to yourself, “I should of listened to Mr. Saturn and cashed in some of my time….now I gotta put up with this shit!”
Capricorn- If you have been putting off facing some issues either at home or within yourself, consider taking the time now to fix whatever it is that’s broke as Jupiter goes station/retrograde and aligns with the Sun. For a while now Saturn and Pluto in your sign have been putting the weight of the world on your shoulders and as they align with Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Communication this may be the time for you to find someone to speak with about how you feel, especially since problems tend to always seem bigger if we keep them bottled up inside. Uranus in your House of Creativity and Mars in your House of Health would further suggest that some form of Art Therapy or, for that matter, any sort of class would be an excellent way to de-stress and put things in perspective. In other words, take the time to do yourself a favor and try something new.
Aquarius- With Jupiter going through your House of Groups over the last few months it has probably felt like you’ve been on stage non-stop, 24/7. If that’s the case, then when the King of the Planets goes retrograde this week you might want to try to spend some time with those you’ve been neglecting. Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Self Worth will likely have you feeling more vulnerable than usual and as these planets align with Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes, getting together with loved ones at this time may just be about you needing them rather than their needing you out there protecting them from anything. Unpredictable Uranus going through your House of Family may furnish some surprises, particularly if you end up realizing that your home is your ballast rather than your career. With that said, take this respite you’ve managed to arrange as a time solely for fun and trust that your work will be waiting when you get back.
Pisces- If you’ve been on a roll as of late you might see things start to wind down this week as Jupiter goes station/retrograde in your House of Career. Of course you may not be happy about this, especially as Jupiter aligns with the Sun in your House of Self Worth and squares Mercury and Venus in your sign. You can’t be “on” all the time, so instead of taking this recent down cycle as an indication that maybe you’re losing it, instead look at this period as a time to re-evaluate and rejuvenate yourself in order to come back and kick some serious new ass in the coming weeks. Saturn and Pluto might very well have some constructive criticism to give about revamping your plans, so make sure you slow down and give them a listen; in terms of your long-term success you’ll be glad you did.
