ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]

Anytime something is about to come full circle, whether it is the Moon growing full or a faster planet closing in on a slower moving one, life can feel to increase in pressure and intensity. Your ruler Mars has been closing in on older brother Pluto and will cross in front of this powerful force on Thursday, April 26, initiating a brand new beginning in your journey. Your desires will be speaking to you loud and clear and undeniable steps that are needed now will make themselves known to you. It may take added courage to initiate the new but often times you just need to jump without allowing any fear to enter. Life may also be feeling more serious than usual with Mars transiting through Capricorn, which is necessary when making choices that may impact your long term your future. Some decisions may prove to be difficult early on but by Friday, April 27, you will naturally know what to do as Mercury, the planet of communication in your sign, aligns effortlessly to the Nodes, the symbols that connect to your past and your future. Your next steps will feel as if they are made for you.

Follow your instinct and it will prove to become your personal gift of knowing!

TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]

Your ruler Venus leaves your sign and enters Gemini on Tuesday, April 24, helping you build upon something you recently initiated, bringing the ingredients together to create something you can be proud to call your own. It may also be that through the written word you discover how to make more of what you have and you are discovering ways to increase its value. Mars, the planet of desire, closes in on Pluto in fellow earth sign Capricorn on Thursday, April 26, which will go far to unearth latent wants and wishes and will work to re-inspire you to take further action to manifest something that up until now has been a closed book. Mercury aligns favorably to the Nodes, the symbols that connect to your past and your future this weekend, bringing news that allows you to feel more confident about a piece of your future. The Sun in your sign also secures itself to Saturn to re-state this sentiment that the way forward will be paved.

Clear an early hurdle this week, and the days that follow are certain to help you find a far better groove!

GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]

There are days when even your own clever mind cannot find a way to reconcile where you stand or to help you find to the other side of something troubling. Early this week, you will be thinking long and hard about something that has pained you and with Mars joining Pluto in Capricorn on Thursday, April 26, the gravity of current events may be feeling like a pressing weight on your Soul. Your ruler Mercury in Aries is squaring off with rigid Saturn as we initiate this forecast week, but you find a way to free yourself when Mercury pushes on and access the Nodes with liberating ease this weekend. You are soon to be feeling less trapped and energized with a momentum to help make a mountain move. The best news however, is that loving Venus has entered your sign, so even if life is feeling overwhelming, she will do her best to help take the hard edge off. You will feel to have come through a difficult chute by the weekend.

Do your best to get something right before you get there and the victory will taste even sweeter!

CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]

While you may have been emotionally all over the place with Mars transiting through your opposite sign and potentially making your relationship life problematic in places, he will move in front of Pluto in Capricorn on Thursday, April 26, to gift you with the energetic backbone that you need to make the right choices for growth and for gain. Mercury in Aries is also squaring Sgt. Saturn which is making you feel as if your hands are tied or that you are being forced to make a difficult decision. Mercury frees itself by the weekend as he aligns harmoniously to the Nodes, those symbols that connect to your past and your future, helping you feel the wind at your back again. Strong and certain steps are required in your most committed connections where an unwavering conviction of terms is spoken regarding what you want and need moving forward.

Don’t be afraid to voice your Soul's desire. The courage will come before long!

LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]

Evolution is no easy street, it’s hard work, and often it hurts. In a way it has to, in order for the right kind of growth to happen for the Soul. Mars and Pluto are merged in Capricorn, in your house of improvements, which brings a hyper-focus on something that feels broken and in need of repair. At times this can also symbolize an energy of guilt or regret as you reflect upon certain turns in your past. With Pluto reversing direction for five months, it can put a spot light on such things. At minimum, you may experience an inner humbling either due to recent events or in memory of events in your personal history. However, this is when the real work happens, when the Soul is deep in reflection. The energy does find a way to lift by the weekend however as Mercury in fellow fire sign Aries aligns favorably to the Nodes, the symbols that connect to your past and your future, and you find a way to pull yourself out of a funk. Loving Venus has also shifted into Gemini, which will grant you a keen objectivity and have you making choices to step outside your usual box, which will feel like its own kind of freedom.

A change in the mundane will help immensely, so when the invite arrives, say yes!

VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]

You are either having a hard time focusing or you don’t have enough time in the day to manage what you must as your ruler Mercury is in Aries and squaring Saturn. This can create an energy of irritation and pressure in meeting deadlines. Action Mars is also in fellow earth sign Capricorn and will form an exact conjunction to Pluto on Thursday, April 26, which re-states themes of obligation, but the earth sign placement supports optimal movement and progress where efforts are pure and well directed. Life may not feel remotely ideal until we reach the weekend when Saturn releases his grip on your ruler Mercury and Mercury follows with a  strong position to the Nodes, those symbols that connect to your past and your future. There may be plenty of things piling up that you don’t feel you have the energy or time for but a greater perspective will be gleaned once some of the planetary intensity eases as we pull into the weekend. Your Soul can’t and wont stay down for long Virgo so keep chipping away at it and putting your best foot forward.

The joy is due to return!

LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]

 If your Soul is sensitive enough, you can feel when the planets change signs. A palpable shift in energy is experienced. Your ruler Venus just entered fellow air sign Gemini on Tuesday, April 24, and whether you felt it happen or not, you will begin to feel the tides turning ever more in your favor by the time we reach the weekend. You may have to wait a few days for the fun to arrive as Mercury in your opposite sign is currently squaring task master Saturn, which may have everyone around you grumpy and misbehaving. Also, Mars in Capricorn joins Pluto on Thursday, April 26, which can have emotions running high at home so prepare for the possibility to be called to tend to matters there. Mercury moves on however and blends beautifully with the Nodes, those symbols that connect to your past and your future, so there will be harmony again by the weekend. Muscle through it in the next few days Libra and keep your inner doors open.

Heartfelt resolutions follow!

SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]

Feeling fired-up and all lit up Scorpio? Warrior Mars is hot on your heels and soon to merge with your ruler Pluto on Thursday, April 26. This will ignite enormous emotion in you and in some cases trigger any anger you may have been storing, whether it is linked with world issues or something far more personal. Fears of loss and betrayal can surface under this trend as well and talking through the tough stuff will be necessary as Mercury in Aries squares Saturn, which may have you feeling antagonistic early on. However, Mercury advances with a high degree of motivation in the sign of Aries and seeks some valuable guidance that offers a natural way through with his ideal angle to the Nodes, those symbols that connect to your past and your future. With Jupiter in your sign, your intuition is as good as it gets, so lean on the inner knowing that is penetrating every living cell. Karmic exchanges are occurring now so do not take a word spoken lightly.

Prepare for your part in the exchange and allow something to finish so something better can begin again!

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 22 - Dec 21]

Your body will be speaking volumes to you in the coming days and you won’t need to question for a moment whether or not you can trust what it's telling you. Your senses are already ramped up with your ruler Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio, the sign of the psychic. In addition, Jupiter is aligning with incredible ease to instinct Mars and Soulful Pluto and on Thursday, April 26, this powerful duo will become one. This is a big decision making time, it represents an energy of newfound commitment to something that is destined to mold your future. There is a high degree of pressure forming along with equal amounts of motivation to take something on. Giver Venus just entered your opposite sign of Gemini which will help you get the support you need to go the distance. Mercury in fellow fire sign Aries also works to diffuse some of the anger in order to make room for greater understanding in your relationships.

Your desire is unleashed this week; harness the energy and evolve!

CAPRICORN [Dec 22 - Jan 19]

Some days it can feel like pulling teeth just to make something happen, and then there are other days when it all happens in a single breath. Mercury is squaring your ruler Saturn which can make the simplest of tasks feel difficult, but Mercury won’t trip you up for long as this weekend he aligns with great support to the Nodes, those symbols that connect to your past and your future. Mars in your sign will merge with Pluto, the planet of empowerment, on Thursday, April 26, in an effort to initiate a new Soul chapter in your world, energizing a wild change of scenery. Loving Venus has just entered Gemini as well making it easier for you to put your nose to the grindstone and get back to work. When you love what you do, those long hours won’t trouble you a bit. This is one of those windows in time when you may feel as if you have grown up in a week. There is nothing that you won’t be able to talk through with another. You just have to allow yourself to be vulnerable enough to get to the bottom of it.

Be brave and be true!

AQUARIUS [Jan 20 - Feb 19]

You have been rebelling for many years, and for some of you the rebellion has lasted lifetimes. Your ruler Uranus has been trailblazing his way through Aries and it has offered a welcomed kind of freedom. But a significant shift in time is coming mid May when Uranus shifts into Taurus and enters your house of the emotional body. Your Soul is being called to the river, the water of emotion that carries you more swiftly in your evolutionary journey. Choice making planet Mars joins Pluto, the planet of the Soul on Thursday, April 26, which will be activating hidden desires that your Soul has been fearful of exploring, perhaps due to wondering how the world will respond to what you want. There may be some resistance this week and even fear early on as you get in touch with the depths of a desire but your instinct is speaking truths that your Soul must follow, and this instinct is leading you deeper into you. Loving Venus has entered fellow air sign Gemini, granting your heart support in the weeks that lead up to Uranus’ big transition. Once the fear dissipates, Mercury will keep your mind clear this weekend, giving you the confidence to be vulnerable on your heart’s climb.

Step strong and follow the rythm of your beating heart!

PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]

A fog is clearing. Jupiter, the planet of insight is in fellow water sign Scorpio and retrograding back to align in heavenly ways to your ruler Neptune in the next month. Often it takes some time for those whispers of truth to make the way forward visible again. It is also important to understand why your recent travels have taken you down certain roads. Within this, Mars and Pluto join in Capricorn on Thursday, April 26, which may serve as an ignition for an unexpected opportunity to arrive in your life and as they sync up naturally to Jupiter, your gut will tell you straight away if it is a path worth taking. There is stress in the sky early on but by the weekend the roads open up and you see clearly the work you need to do, emotional and otherwise, before you are ready for the real stage.

The road beckons and your motivation soars!
