The Center for the New Age is pleased to present your Free Weekly Horoscope for April 5 – April 11, 2020
Jupiter is conjunct Pluto (April 5 – May 22). Jupiter represents expansion, prosperity, social advancement, opportunities towards growth, to name a few, while Pluto represents transformation, power, fate and is represented as the underworld god, Hades in the Greek mythology. This conjunction of these two highly influential planets will affect absolutely everyone, and it is likely to bring an economic shift that for some may seem especially alarming, as the course of great economic change will be inevitable. Strong power plays are at work on the international market at this time. This conjunction will bring unforgettable dealings in large corporations and many people may be consciously choosing to override the economic mistakes of the previous generations by radically investing in futuristic markets.
Mercury sextile Pluto (April 7 – April 11). Communications and discussions are enhanced, with an opportunity to make a breakthrough in negotiations with a strong power. Information and news at this time will be noteworthy. This serves as a good time to reach out to those of another generation and make an attempt to communicate something vital.
Mercury sextile Jupiter (April 8 – April 12) is a most favorable aspect that brings the potential to receive good news of expansion and prosperity to those who are open to broadening their awareness. Mercury brings news while Jupiter brings wealth and prosperous advancement. This is an especially good time to look openly for opportunity when sharing information, and to promote oneself and one’s actions. For some folks this may even be a good time to start a new enterprise.
Full Moon in Libra on April 8 is the important time to just let go of those unsettled feelings about your friendships. Relationships are a balancing act. Friends will share their strengths as well as their weaknesses. Troubled times can strengthen even the weakest links in friendships. Refuse to contribute to the weakness of a friend; nurture friendships with patience, understanding and encourage. Use this Full Libra Moon energy to empower your relationships.
Mercury enters Aries (April 11 – April 7) bringing out a communicative focus on selfhood, initiation, new projects, and new ways of seeing and experiencing life. We are all constantly in the process of being initiated into some aspect of selfhood, particularly given that we are constantly learning, acquiring new skills, growing and aging. Mercury in Aries helps us to discuss a focus on the newness in our lives and our personal ways of reacting and emerging through new experience.
Mercury sextile Saturn (April 11 – April 15) gives people an opportunity to learn vital lessons concerning boundaries, limitations and responsibilities. Mercury sextile Saturn emphasizes favorable news and communications concerning matters of restriction and timely completion. This tends to be a time when struggles and difficulties are frequently discussed and people collectively draw conclusions concerning how to best handle their problems or responsibilities.
Free Weekly Horoscope for your Sign
Aries: Do you remember the fable about the hare and the tortoise? You may recall that the tortoise bet the hare that he could win a race after the hare mocked his speed. As the tortoise plodded over the starting line, the hare was already on his way to the finishing post and, feeling complacent in his approaching victory, the hare decided to take a little nap. You know the rest, of course. What you need to remember this week is to be impervious to distractions and do not allow complacency or arrogance to ruin your success. Aim to stay on course and keep your eyes firmly on the finish line. Only when you’ve accomplished what you set out to do can you allow yourself to relax.
Taurus: You might think that you have no time to rest, but this is dangerous territory for a Taurus. When you push yourself too hard, take on too much, and worry excessively about things you can’t control, you can make life much more difficult. Surrender to a higher power – whether you call it God or your intuition – and you will ease into the flow and naturally be in the right place at the right time. There is a lot of invisible support surrounding you this week, and when you can relax into that support while applying a patient, steady, methodical approach, you will find yourself making greater progress than you thought possible and with minimal effort.
Gemini: There is a social feel to your chart this week, and you will benefit from getting out and about, making new contacts, and enjoying old friends. This isn’t so much a week for striving for progress in the ambitious sense. It’s more a week for savoring pleasure and shared moments with others. This will increase as the week progresses culminating in the Full Moon which will highlight your friendships and social life, as well as the importance of letting your hair down and having some fun.
Cancer: Your direction and path in life become your focal point this week, making this the time to push ahead with any ambitions or to get noticed in the outside world. It may be timely to question whether you’re heading in the right direction and what adjustments might be needed to get you on the right path. It is important to consider what you want to do rather than what you think you should do. As the dust begins to settle on the Full Moon, it should be easier for you to make progress in the outside world and have a clearer idea of the direction you want to take.
Leo: Saturn’s recent entry into Aquarius suggests that it’s time to get serious about your relationships – or one in particular. Try to remember that any problems are there to test the strength and commitment of your partnership, and any worthwhile relationship will weather the storms. If it all feels a bit heavy, then the antidote lies in adventure, and this is the perfect week to take a vacation or experience something new. A change of scenery will give you a new perspective and enable you to see that all things are possible with a wiling heart.
Virgo: There are times in life when it becomes necessary to shed our old skin. If we don’t, we can become weighed down and restricted by old ways and habits that no longer suit us. Whether this applies to your physical health or your mental well-being, now is the time to invite a rebirth and release all that no longer serves you. Put strategies in place to help you become more efficient and productive in your daily life.
Libra: You’ve had a lot to contend with in recent times, but Saturn’s move into Aquarius is support for you. It suggests a much lighter phase ahead, making it easier for you to return to your natural state and spread your joy. This is a great week to enjoy the company of others, enhance your relationships, and remember that nothing matters more than love. The Full Moon in your sign is your cue to pause and take stock of your life. Are you on the right path? Are you happy with the way things are going? This is a good week to look at what is “yours,” “mine,” and “ours” to see whether there is room for less “mine” and more “ours.” There may be many questions, but the answer to them all lies in being true to your needs.
Scorpio: No matter what’s going on at home, try to not let it affect your well-being. Whether you have a difficult relationship to deal with or more practical matters going on at home (it looks like your domestic life could be a source of difficulty), taking a constructive and disciplined approach will work best. Do what you can to resolve matters, but the Full Moon on April 8 calls your attention to your health and well-being and the focus now really needs to be on how you spend your days and whether this supports you. Make “organization” and “efficiency” your keywords and keep in mind that moderation is the key to your success now in relation to your health, work, or life in general.
Sagittarius: Where would you be if you left all your cares behind? Any Sagittarius knows deep down that the answer to one’s problems is to have a good belly laugh. Laughter isn’t just good for the body; it also lightens the soul and makes problems seem more surmountable. As the Sun moves into your zone of fun, take every opportunity this week to enjoy yourself. Sing, dance, create, watch a comedy, play a game, and spend time with people you like. You will find yourself stepping into a more carefree way of being.
Capricorn: Saturn in Aquarius puts the emphasis on money and your material life, but rather than worry about whether you have enough, this week brings the opportunity to take matters into your own hands to become the master of your financial destiny. Yes, this may involve quite a bit of work and effort, but you’re not averse to that so get productive, and use discipline and determination to change your circumstances. Your home and family life may also be a feature, and it may help to consider this: “The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home.” (Confucius)
Aquarius: Saturn and Mars moving into your sign marks the beginning of a new chapter in your life in which you can achieve anything. This is a powerful and determined combination of energies, but be careful that you don’t become too single-minded or willful in your goals, because only the trees that can bend in the wind survive the storms. A little flexibility in your approach may be the answer to any problems you have. Perhaps it would be a good idea to follow Jessica Hagedorn’s advice: Adaptability is the simple secret of survival.
Pisces: Saturn’s arrival in your zone of the soul suggests that it is time to withdraw a little from the outside world to nourish your inner self. Meanwhile, the Sun journeys through your financial sector, exposing any lack you might be experiencing and highlighting what you need to be happy. This could be a conflict of interest unless you come to see that you probably have everything you need and that as long as you’re living in alignment with your values, all will be well. Think about what Epictetus wrote: “Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.”
