Week of April 21st – April 28th, 2013

So just what does the cosmos have in store for you this next week? For starters, Mercury squares off against deep, dark Pluto on April 21st, a pairing that will lead to intense discussions and, in turn, help you get to the root of any problems. Just beware, for Pluto can be negative and obsessive. If things get too serious, find the lighter side, and try to make sure you laugh often!

Monday, April 22nd, sees Venus move opposite Saturn, reminding you of all your chores, responsibilities, and, for the moment, removing any chance for romance. Let loved ones have their space as you turn on your charm to create practical solutions in your workplace.

The Moon is in Virgo all day Monday and there are ongoing lunar aspects all day. Keep on the move and get a lot of different things accomplished, rather than taking on a project that requires intense focus. It would also be a good day to help by being of service.

An emotional roller coaster lurks ahead over the next few days with the upcoming eclipse, challenging your communications and your love life! You will need some time to help you navigate these churning cosmic energies. You’ll uncover strengths and weaknesses you didn’t even know you had, making you stronger, to help you get a firmer grip on the days ahead.

April 24th brings lots of cosmic activity. First, Venus and Pluto get together to bring back romance and seduction! You could receive (or even offer) exciting propositions on this day, but you’ll also want to be on the lookout for behind-the-scenes manipulation. Also on April 24th, Mercury and Jupiter partner up for optimistic opinions and compliments galore! Finally, the day sees the Sun and Neptune meet in a dreamy dance, bestowing you with strong intuition and a peaceful, lazy attitude.

The Lunar Eclipse – the first of three in a row – is on Thursday the 25th, at 6 degrees Scorpio/Taurus. This Full Moon adds healing opportunities that are quite supportive to you in the near future. Neptune in psychic Pisces continues to be active early this year, and that supports compassion and forgiveness practices. You can take steps to heal yourself, others, or even put some constructive energy into your business. Because this eclipse drags restructuring Saturn into the energies, there is an opportunity to explore your past and establish better emotional boundaries. However, people who have a problem with depression may take a dip in the dark side with this energy. The good news is that you will not get stuck in the shadows too long because the energetic Sun and assertive Mars are pushing you to put your values and ambition into motion. This Full Moon is a bit complicated with energies pulling you in different directions. Once you get all the pieces working in the same direction, it is very powerful. Good preparation is the most important part of any big job, so don’t any skip steps to move the process along.

The Moon moves into Sagittarius on Saturday, so there is ample energy to do something fun. However, a challenging Saturn aspect suggests that you not stay out too late on Saturday evening.
