The Center for the New Age is pleased to present your Free Weekly Horoscope for April 11 – April 17, 2021
Venus square Pluto (April 11 – April 20) usually involves difficulties such as, loss or death of a loved one, and the obstacles of rejection, slavery and general oppression concerning those aspects of life to which we are undeniably attached and we hold dear. If something of this nature is occurring for you at this time, it is best to recognize that love will triumph in every dimension despite the pain of separation, or the disease and strife of the beloved.
New Moon in Aries on April 12 is a good time to start anew, not only because the Moon has reached the new mark and our moods are geared in this way, but especially so because the Aries Moon invokes the powers of initiation and newness as an essential part of the regenerative force. This is a time to generate and promote inspiration and happiness.
Venus enters Taurus (April 14 – May 9). Venus is at home nurturing our sense of sensual pleasure and enhancing our appreciation of this beautiful spring season’s peak performance. Venus in Taurus brings out aesthetic awareness, as well as a greater emphasis on the love having valuable items, wealth, and riches. Venus draws and attracts, and Taurus represents material acquisition and containment. Now is the time to acquire, polish, clean and beautify the things that give us a sense of truly having something.
Mars trine Jupiter (April 17 – May 2) may be the time to act on opportunities as they arise and to set one’s visions and dreams into a feasible plan that holds the potential for favorable actions to occur. Mars trine Jupiter affects the actions taking place around us in a favorable and gifted way, concerned with the expansion of our livelihood and our awareness. Mars activates and stirs action while Jupiter represents not only our sense of economy and how to advance, but our sense of philosophic and visionary awareness as well, allowing us to realize new talents and new means of likelihood, the intake of wealth, and well being.
Mercury sextile Jupiter (April 17 – April 21) 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.
Mercury sextile Mars (April 17 – April 21) brings out opportunities that can be received, recognized, communicated and acted upon. Clear communications concerning actions being taken may make this a superb time to seek employment. People are likely to back up their statements with action during this period and it would be a good time to apply diplomacy.
Mercury square Pluto (April 17 – April 23) brings obstacles with regard to communicating to those of other generations. This is a particularly difficult time to deal with harsh issues and discuss them in a manner that makes the hardships any easier. The effects of Mercury square Pluto focus our attention on the obstacles and difficulties of communicating about power issues and the great dangers that our own concept of threat represents. It is especially important to be aware of what we choose to say or think about powers that appear greater than ourselves.
Free Weekly Horoscope for your Sign
Any lack of motivation could be a sign that you need a change or a new experience, and the New Moon on April 11 should help you create the new beginning your soul craves. Pick an area of life that feels stagnant or in need of change, and see whether you can breathe new life into it. If this doesn’t seem possible, then it might be time to make a break and try something new. Look at your future hopes and dreams and decide what is worth keeping and what needs to change. To do this, you might need to take a risk and think less about security and more about fulfillment. Follow the advice attributed to Goethe. “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
Gifts for Aries
With a New Moon in your house of the soul on April 11, your intuition or inner knowing will be particularly strong this week. Act on any gut feelings and let logic take more of a back seat. Sometimes the heart knows the answer while the head can seek to override wha it doesn’t understand. That said, be aware of compulsive thoughts and actions, as Pluto’s square to Venus suggests a possible sliding into darker waters. Try to determine the difference between your intuition and compulsive needs and desires. If you can do that, the week ahead will see you moving toward higher frequencies.

Love Cards Report
The New Moon on April 11 is auspicious, suggesting that your dreams can become reality. You just need to take a step in the right direction. With Mars still strong in your sign, you should have no shortage of motivation as long as you focus on what interests you. The keyword here is “passion.” Follow what you feel passionate about and all will be well. Whether your dreams are large or small – whether you have a big project to tackle or a small endeavor to accomplish – this really is the week to make hay while the Sun shines.
Gifts for Gemini
With a New Moon on April 11 and a cluster of planets in your success zone, this is the perfect week to initiate or follow through with a project or an ambition or to discover more about your true purpose in life and take a step toward it. It is time to leave the past behind and focus more on where you want to be going. Starting fresh is the way to go in your professional life or general direction; however, your relationships might require a transformative approach. Either way, keeping things as they are is unlikely to work so be willing to embrace any change that feels energizing.

New Age Natal Report
Something is calling you to be bold and step outside previous confines or safe structures. The answer to a problem probably lies in finding the courage to do the thing you fear. Ironically, once you confront it, your fear will likely disintegrate before your eyes. Whether it’s an opportunity you need to say yes to or something else pulling you toward new territory, remind yourself that the New Moon on April 11 is blessed by Venus and ensures that your courage will be amply rewarded.
Gifts for Leo
Certain reptiles, such as the lizard, shed their tails when attacked by predators so that they can escape. Amazingly, the lizard then grows a new tail. It is unlikely that the lizard thinks much about this process or wonders whether it is worth sacrificing a body part to live. In a similar way, we could say that if you want to break free from a difficult or painful situation, you might need to let go of something. Whether it’s a situation, emotional baggage, a habit or physical possessions, you’ll benefit now from releasing negative attachments and shedding your old skin.
Gifts for Virgo
This could be a dramatic week. With a New Moon and cluster of planets in your relationship zone, the time for new beginnings in love and partnerships has arrived. But be aware that as Pluto squares Venus, it could be difficult to keep a lid on your deep feelings. This could result in compulsive behavior, powerful desires, or darker states, such as jealousy, vengefulness and betrayal. Try to ascertain whether the roots of such insecurities are in the past, because genuine love seeks to give rather than possess. This might be the time to start over in an important relationship or initiate a new one; some kind of transformation is now required.

The planets are gathering in your zone of work and health, making this the perfect week to start anew in either of these areas. Healing a particular condition or ailment is more viable now, as is finding greater happiness in your work or day-to-day life. Try to adopt a more positive mindset, realizing that things don’t have to continue as they have been and that your everyday routines hold the key to your success. Inasmuch as the secret of your future may be hidden in your daily routine, make sure your routines work for you and not against you.

The creativity theme continues as a New Moon in the playful area of your chart on April 11 invites you to consider what feels like play to you. Then go and do it without attaching any goals. In fact, striving or setting targets is counterproductive, as that can take away much of the fun and spontaneity. This is more about being in the moment, and you can take this idea and apply it to the wider aspects of your life. How present are you in the things that you do? Can you stop thinking of the next thing on your to-do list and just be where you are? If you can do this, you will identify with the words of more than one prophet, “The only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.” So be it!

With a New Moon in your domestic zone on April 11, this is the perfect week to make a new start in your home and family life, perhaps with a spring cleaning to freshen your space. Mending damaged relationships with family members can also successfully take place now, and healing the dynamics of the past needs to be your overriding focus. Closing a door on what has been might be helpful, particularly if you have been feeling stuck and unable to move forward. A new beginning is advisable, if possible, but at the least, keep your attention on the new and away from what has been.

This week is all about seeing and communicating, and it should therefore be quite an interesting and active week. With its underlying theme of communication, do you have some knowledge or an idea to share with others? Do you need to listen or have a conversation with someone? None of this has to be deep and heavy. On the contrary, simply exchanging pleasantries with neighbors or people you come into contact with during your day can lift the spirits, but if you have a message you would like to impart, now is the time to get it out there.

A New Moon in your money zone on April 11 makes this the ideal week to turn over a new leaf with financial and material matters, and you can start by adopting a more proactive attitude in this area. For example, it might be time to shift from doing what simply pays the bills to doing what you love. Explore your talents and heal any limiting beliefs about not being good enough. You don’t have to be the “best,” but think about using what talents you possess to achieve your goal.
