Weekly Horoscopes for 4/22-4/28, 2019
Aries- Mercury and Venus in your sign should make you a bit of a chatty Kathy this week, especially since Mars (your ruling planet) is also in your House of Communication. At the same time, the Sun will be conjunct with Uranus in your House of Self Worth, perhaps transforming an initial desire for chit-chat into some downright outspokenness. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Public Image is about loss and gain, so maybe it’s about time for you to shed an inherited image that is safe and exchange it for one that represents the truth of who you are? Neptune behind the scenes could have you doubting yourself and worrying if anyone could ever love you as you really are, but there’s only one way to find out, and with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Philosophy don’t necessarily assume things can’t or won’t change from what they were.
Taurus- With the Sun and Uranus currently in your sign you may seem more rebellious than those around you are used to, however, with Mercury and Venus behind the scenes your desire is not to simply disrupt things, but to actually create a better situation for everyone involved. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy and Neptune in your House of Groups are the brain trust and humanitarian force behind your recent uncharacteristic aggressiveness, and as they work together be willing to push the envelope in a matter that you’re convinced needs to change. You’re the visionary here so don’t let someone else with an ax to grind talk you into thinking you need to examine your conscience. “I see said the blind man, but he couldn’t see at all.”
Gemini- Mars in your sign is making you feel invincible and Mercury in the aggressive sign of Aries is probably causing you to shoot your mouth off more than you should. I know you’re feeling it, but don’t be surprised if there’s some scorching blow back as a result. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation will require you to be responsible for everything you say, which should not be taken lightly, especially with Neptune in your House of Public Image creating an air of suspicion as to what your actual motives may be. The Sun and Uranus behind the scenes could be either an “I don’t give a shit” attitude on your part, or someone else’s “Screw You” sentiments, neither one though bodes well for a stable and balanced future if you stay on your current course.
Cancer- The landscape all around you is changing so it’s time to change your M.O. as well. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Partnerships is about letting shit go and building a new future, while Neptune in your House of Philosophy is about enlightenment, meaning you’re no longer the person you were so don’t go thinking things will always turn out the way they once did. Mercury and Venus in your House of Career should motivate you to get out there and start looking for opportunities, while at the same time the Sun and Uranus in your House of Groups will be motivating you to get out there and proudly “Do You”…..whatever that may mean. Mars behind the scenes could be either a distraction or a motivating force, so let’s hope Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work will help you to understand your recent experiences so that you’ll be able to use their lessons wisely.
Leo- What do you want to be when you grow up? You may be doing one thing to pay the bills, while at the same time dreaming or dabbling in something else to satisfy your soul. With the Sun and Uranus in your House of Career, now would be a good time to explore a secret (or not so secret) passion and see if you can make a buck at it. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Work will prevent you from getting too crazy with this, while at t he same time Neptune in your House of Transformation will help you to explore the possibility of experimenting with a vision in order to see if it’s a possibility for the future. The mantra of Mercury and Venus in your House of Philosophy will be, “Why not?” while at the same time Mars in your House of Dreams will be saying, “Go for it.” With that much popular opinion in favor for trying something new, how can you not run your idea up the flagpole and see if anyone salutes it?
Virgo- If it feels like a fog has enveloped you and a partner so that almost nothing seems clear anymore in your interactions then it probably means that Neptune in your House of Relationships is calling in its I.O.U’s. If you would hope to keep this situation under your control, then communication will be imperative. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Romance were initially the culprits who brought this whole subject up, although now that it’s in crisis mode these two will also offer the insights to deal with any issues that you thought Neptune would help you sweep under the rug. Mercury and Venus in your House of Transformation is about directly acknowledging how you and your partner are different and why this has secretly annoyed both of you to no end. It’s strange that things have gotten to this point, especially since your differences were initially what drew you to one another. It’s a thin line between love and hate, so try and be mathematical and imagine an infinite line…..Then work to stay on it.
Libra- The Sun and Uranus in your House of Transformation are compelling you now to move forward into uncharted territories, and although you are not entirely sure of where it is you’re going, somehow it feels right…..or does it? If change brought what we already knew then it wouldn’t be change, would it? Saturn and Pluto have been rebuilding you from the inside out for a while and Neptune has been disappearing things out of your life like a fist when you open your hand, but to what end? Who’s to say, although with Mercury and Venus in your House of Partnerships and Mars in your House of Philosophy you should be willing to let yourself be influenced by situations and ideas that don’t seem so cut and dry in order to develop some new ideas of your own. “Cha, cha, cha, changes……turn and face the strain.”
Scorpio- As Mars passes through your House of Transformation and squares Neptune in your House of Fun, it would be very easy for you now to fall into a funk about your current circumstances. On the other hand, Mercury and Venus in your House of Health and the Sun and Uranus in your House of Relationships are working overtime together to counteract any hang dog attitude you might currently possess by instead providing an antidote of love and support that should end up lasting you far longer than whatever challenges you may be currently facing. In addition, Saturn and Pluto are pitching in to help you rebuild in this unstable time as they transform the illusions of Neptune and Mars into the brick and mortar of a new life that lies ahead. “Do not go gentle into that good night, rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
Sagittarius- Jupiter retrograde now in your sign marks a time when reflection on certain matters would serve you well. Let’s begin with Neptune transiting through your House of Home and Family. This could be a particularly insidious influence, especially since it is now squaring Mars in your House of Relationships, meaning that it would be very important for you to consider how your family’s demands over the years has influenced your current relationship (or lack thereof). Contrast that with Mercury and Venus going through your House of Fun and Romance, which are in beneficial aspect to the aforementioned Mars in your Relationships area, and maybe the time has come for you to acknowledge all you’ve denied yourself because of another’s needs? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth are there for you as well if you decide you want to experiment with some tough love (for them) and TLC (for you). Do it and it will be so.
Capricorn- I’m going to keep it upbeat this week, I promise. Let’s start off with the Sun and Uranus in your House of Creativity and Romance. So, what do you want, creative freedom or a stimulating fling? Either is within the realm of possibilities with these two if you’re willing to get out there and engage. On the other hand, Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes may have you feeling a little guilty about indulging yourself, but since that’s your usual M.O. all Mercury and Venus would have to say to that is “boring” as they align with virile Mars in your House of Health to promote the age old maxim, “All work and no play makes Jack (Jill) a dull boy (girl). The Moon will begin it’s Lunar Arc this week in your sign, but as the days go by it will progress into your Houses of Self Worth and Communication respectively, thereby motivating you to get out there and engage, which brings us back to where we started with the Sun and Uranus…….Party!!!
Aquarius- You usually have lots of ideas, but this week with Mars in your House of Creativity aligning with Mercury and Venus in your House of Communication the time has come for you to focus on one thing and run with it. Of course Neptune in your House of Self Worth will make the argument not to limit yourself, but the reality is that the time has come for you to deal with the Psychology of how you avoid testing your confidence by being unwilling to focus on one thing at a time and then seeing it through. Deep, huh? The Sun and Uranus going through your House of Foundations could help a lot with this, but of course you’ll have to face what the nature of rebellion has really been about for you; needing to be yourself, or needing the attention of others? Go ahead, sit down, would you like a glass of water? I know this is a lot.
Pisces- Your desire for change is strong right now, almost as strong as your fear of it. Which of the two will win? Mars at your Foundation is shaking things up, but as long as it squares Neptune in your sign you won’t leave your comfort zone. On the other hand, Mercury and Venus in your House of Self Worth are tickling you and creating an itch that must be scratched. The Sun and Uranus together in Taurus now are a revolutionary pair, however revolution for its own sake is madness, there must also be an overall holistic need to change and then the subsequent turmoil becomes the process of natural selection instead of the process of destruction. Jupiter in your House of Career has you dreaming (and longing) but since the King of the Planets is retrograde now, perhaps he’s urging you to err on the side of caution and be patient for the time being with the process of change rather than the mere fantasies results?
