April 2-8

March was an energetically loooooong month wasn’t it? Pisces Season was emotionally trying for many, plus two full moons in one month, the earliest days of Mercury and Jupiter Retrogrades, and a new Mars story in strict Capricorn.  April is here now. And thankfully, the Universe is giving us a bit of calm this week - as long as Mercury Retrograde behaves ! - hence the short horoscope with little transits. The theme of the week is: use the downtime to build a home for love.  After last Sunday’s Full Moon in Libra, our relationships are receiving beautiful harmonization and mutuality. Speaking of love, Venus is now in her signsake Taurus where the Goddess of Love will help make our romantic partnerships and financial security stable, virtuous, and very sensual for the next 3 weeks. Build a home for this. Along the way,  let yourself indulge when it comes to romance and let love work its magic since this weekend inspires responsibility. A Capricorn Moon starts on Friday until Sunday. Which will give us the motivation to get shit done so we can share the fruit of our labor this weekend.

Aries: Happy Birthday, Aries! I hope you’re enjoying the cosmic celebrations in your honor. If you’re feeling more subdued this year, don’t fret. Mercury Retrograde is IN Aries - so you’ll be tested to slow down and integrate wisdom until April 15th. The Universe’s gift to you this birthday is increased financial gain. Venus in Taurus is blessing Aries with economic abundance and a greater sense of relationship security. As a cardinal fire sign, your romantic style is brave and free. But you do cherish presence and safety from your partners. Ready to work, Ram? This weekend inspires responsible strategies for professional, disciplined, and long-term success. Use the productivity well!

Taurus: Lovely, Taurus, I’m pleased to report - it’s all about you! Venus in Taurus is going to bless you with moments and partnerships that help you understand and experience your highest relational experiences. You’re feeling more deserving to not only receive but generously give beautiful partnership, loyalty, and love until April 24th. Give in to romantic indulgence. Say yes. Lean in and experience what the Universe is trying to help you have. Friday begins an adventure when the Moon enters Capricorn! Make the time this weekend to explore unknown places with the familiar people you adore.

Gemini: I’m embarrassed to admit this but I really love the song “Secret Love Song” by Little Mix, Gemini.  And I think you will too. Venus in Taurus is inspiring Gemini to stay detached a bit more and keep romantic feelings on the hush-hush. I don’t think this is an improper strategy. Unless it’s an attraction to the secret, perhaps emotionally unavailable type. When romantic partners show you who they are, believe them. Take your time exploring the emotions you have and see whether or not it’s for the right reason. This weekend’s intimacy vibe thanks to the Capricorn Moon may help you understand the reasons behind your crush’s intentions.

Cancer: Fellow Cancer and best selling author Marianne Williamson remembers that when she began a spiritual pursuit it made her friendships more romantic and her romances more friendly. Venus in Taurus is beautifying your platonic connections and blurring the lines between lover and friend. Transfer some of the unconditional love that you give to your friendships to your romances and make your romances more friendly with the ethics of friendship. A Capricorn Moon all weekend is prime time for date-night. This weekend’s itinerary has passion all over it so be brave in dating scenarios and/or schedule one with a partner you’ve had your eyes on.

Leo: When Venus becomes a coworker, there’s nothing you can’t do. You have charisma, magnetism, popularity and influence at work thanks to Venus in Taurus till April 24th. It’s not political, it’s just a fact of life - but people with not just efficiency but likability are appreciated and promoted. So use this adoration well by speaking on your expectations so that coworkers and/or higher-ups become collaborative and supportive. Spend this weekend with an intensive spring cleaning at the Leo Castle. Your productivity and efficiency will be off the charts so get rid of all the dirt and shadows form the months past to make way for the new energy.

Virgo: There’s a time and a place for planning because suddenly you’re bored by routine and schedule, Virgo. Venus in Taurus until April 24th is inspiring spontaneity, adventure, and passion to explore the unknown horizons and even people.  As a proactive and thoughtful worker, you now have hearts in your eyes for partners who help you have fun and liven up the atmosphere with optimism. Put a pause on your usual habits of planning and organization. Set yourself free this month. A Capricorn Moon all weekend fortifies this theme and puts joy and pleasure on your newly abandoned schedule. Don’t say “no” to life, Virgo.

Libra: How are your sharing skills, Libra? Venus wants you find the perfect balance between giving and receiving while Venus joins in Taurus until April 24th. You’re holding a blossoming romantic opportunity in your hands now so it’s time to see which ones bear trust and quality. Additionally, find friends and lovers who let you speak as much as you listen to them. Register social curiosity. And work hard to reciprocate it. The weekend is a sentimental one thanks to a Capricorn Moon beginning on Friday. Plan a cozy, quiet activity at home with family or friends who make your heart feel safe.

Scorpio: Hardly an emotional lackluster sign, you’re all in. Venus in Taurus until April 24th is showing you how ready you are for romantic commitment, business partnerships, and/or the kind of quality love built to last. Additionally, you’re working hard to smooth out differences and find compromise among all. It’s either win/win or no deal. When the Moon enters Capricorn on Friday, the sexiest quality throughout this weekend is emotional curiosity. Ask questions to discover more about your partner’s psyche and register who returns the favor.

Sagittarius: As the zodiac’s centaur, your fire sign soul is free-spirited and independent. Though your heart’s recently a flutter for the opposite - strong consistency and reliable dependability in a romantic partner. Let it happen! Venus in Taurus is inspiring you to align your beautiful independence with an intellectual and reliable romance until April 24th. Let the contrast inspire a beautiful chemistry. Especially this weekend while security and practical approaches after Friday’s Capricorn Moon become major turn ons all weekend.

Capricorn: Repeat after me, Capricorn - vulnerability is the single greatest measurement of courage. Venus in Taurus is helping the zodiac’s preeminent stoic open their heart proactively to the people who need to see, hear, and feel it. Yes it’s scary and messy but Venus in Taurus wants you to do it anyway until April 24th. With Mars in Capricorn till mid-May, take advantage of this motivation. Mercury is retrograde in your emotional security space so you’ll be a bit caught between a push and pull. Do it anyway. This weekend continues the theme and ask you to put your emotional exposure on the agenda. Speak your truth, Seagoat!

Aquarius: Home is where your heart is, Aquarius. Venus in Taurus is helping the detached sign in the zodiac get attached to places and people who feel safe until April 24th. Who knows, who might even find romance in your hometown or with suitors who share the same values. This is a transit of building a home for love. Speaking of, perhaps have a staycation this weekend at home while the Moon transits Capricorn since you’ll likely feel a bit raw and sensitive. Don’t numb or deny the discomfort. Let it teach you what it’s trying to.

Pisces: Ruled by Neptune, Pisces has a strong grip on the emotional skills for love. While Venus is in Taurus until April 24th, it’s helping you narrow in and pay attention to how romance is also an intellectual technique. Venus is reminding you that while chemistry and emotionality is important, someone’s mental fortitude and vocal communication habits in love are now at the true heart of the romantic matter. Reconnect with friends after Friday’s Capricorn Moon transit begins an energy of socializing, community, and joy all weekend.
