Horoscope for the Week: April 20, 2018

 

Tip of the Week:

There is a lot of astrological activity occurring now. Chiron entered Aries on April 17, Saturn turned retrograde on the 19th and will retreat from just over 9 degrees to about 2.5 degrees between now and September 7th and the Sun just entered Taurus on the 20th. All this occurring on the heels of the New Moon in Aries on the 15th, which was extra special because the Sun and Moon were just 2 degrees shy of conjunct with Uranus. Then the Sun was officially conjunct Uranus in Aries on the 18th and it is noteworthy that this will not occur again for about 84 years! Uranus entering Taurus in mid-May will be the next major focus.

Among these exciting events, Chiron is now officially in Aries as of April 17. As mentioned last week, Aries is the 1st sign of the Zodiac and anytime a planet enters Aries, it officially begins a new cycle. The synchronicity of these cycles is always strong manifesting as pioneering events. These represent larger themes of destiny when they include the far planets especially, from Mars to Pluto. This naturally includes Chiron, which orbits between Saturn and Uranus. Although it is not officially regarded as a planet and holds something of a maverick status, which is true of aspects of its expression as well, Chiron does indeed play an important role and its impact will indeed be felt.  Chiron will retrograde back into Pisces on September 26 and will only re-enter Aries on February 19th, 2019.

Last but not least, April 22 is Earth Day. I have been quite dismayed to notice how apathetic so many people are to this fact. I think it is because it is not officially recognized in the world. It was initiated in the United States back in 1970 and it is celebrated there quite a bit, but not so much elsewhere, such as Canada. Perhaps with all this exciting Aries activation, we can change that this year.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

The time has come to establish new foundations somehow. The process will include a close assessment of your values and priorities at this stage of your journey. In some respects, your focus is on fixing, repairing or healing. Questions regarding you’re your best approach based on experiences from the past is featured.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

The Sun in your sign indicates a time for fresh starts and initiatives. Venus also in Taurus suggests that you want to express yourself, what you deem beautiful and in a variety of ways. Looking at the bigger picture, your focus is sober. There is much more at stake than mere whim or even inspiration. It may feel like do or die, now or never…

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Balancing urges for a retreat with the need for action is a current theme. The way to have both is to pace yourself and to avoid making commitments and promises over the coming few weeks. You will enjoy simple activities especially those close to home. It is not that you do not feel ambitious, just the opposite. So you are wise to work smarter than harder.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Your sense of individuality is being activated. This will likely manifest as various measures of creative leadership. Making purchases and investments that both inspire and empower you to feel aligned is likely. Contending with other power players is featured meanwhile and they are pushing you to be more assertive.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

Changes in your public and professional life will take center stage over the coming weeks. Already you have been gathering tools and learning new skills and this will continue. Although you are probably seeing clear signs of progress leaving you feeling more confident, sincere efforts are still required. A steady learning curve is indicated.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

The Sun entering Taurus should prove auspicious for you. However, the returns it suggests may take until mid to late May to fully manifest. In the shorter term, you must first undergo a purging process of some kind. This could manifest as a body/organ cleanse as a literally as spring cleaning. A change of lifestyle is indicated and could even entail a move.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The Aries New Moon last week will be revealing its destined effects by now. For you, these will activate your relationships. The changes implied are rather deep and could also prove to be challenging. Yet, if you are willing to do the work to dig deep and confront fears manifesting as resistance, you will take the lead.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Something new is germinating in your lifestyle rhythms. These will likely have direct influences on your relationship life and perhaps even status. You may at least be experiencing the initial tremors. So, if you have the opportunity to make the needed efforts to swing things in your desired direction, now is the time to do it.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Some inspiring activations began with last week’s New Moon. These could amount to a new job or living situation. At deeper levels, you may simply feel more confident or happier than you have for a while. Although you ambitions are rising steadily, you still will have to pay your dues, which could amount to putting in your time.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Something big is stirring at core levels and may be affecting you at the very roots of your being. This is hardly an idle or simple time in your life. Positively, you feel stronger than ever. This will be especially true if you know your direction. Otherwise, you could feel like a rebel without a cause. You may need to outline a fresh plan.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

If you are not seeing the world as if with new eyes, you may be soon. Alternatively, it may be new horizons that you are seeing, literally and figuratively. If you have been waiting for the time to make some key moves, this is likely to be it. Still, you will have to act with courage and resolve to have a plan with backup measures and take a firm stride.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)

You feel the urge to break through existing situations and habit patterns. The inspiration to do so may also be coming from the pressures of outer circumstances. Either way, directing your focus in a pointed way implies the need for a sharp focus. Slow but sure will work fine, but you may have to put in extra hours.
