The Center for the New Age is pleased to present your Free Weekly Horoscope for April 19 – April 25, 2020
New Moon in Taurus on April 23 emphasizes the acquisition of new possessions, or it could mean there is a need to restore, replenish, and maintain the old ones. Personal contentment can be found in possessions. Search for the value of what you need and want.
Mercury sextile Mars (April 19 – April 23) brings out opportunities which can be received, recognized, communicated and acted upon. News or information may lead to immediate actions. Commands made with conviction are quickly acted upon. It’s an advantageous time to apply one’s word with a full backing of action for a very favorable outcome.
Mercury is square to Pluto (April 25 – April 29). Scrutiny and doubt make it difficult to communicate with those of another generation. This is a particularly difficult time to deal with burdensome issues and discuss them in a manner that relieves tension. Mercury square Pluto often brings harsh and sometimes fatal news. Talk revolves around the corruption of superpowers and the setbacks caused by this corruption. This may be a particularly difficult time to discuss matters involving permanent change.
Free Weekly Horoscope for your Sign
Aries: The Sun’s move into Taurus on April 19 brings a financial theme, making this a good week to turn your attention toward your material life and to make changes that will liberate you from difficulties. The New Moon is your big chance to do things differently, and there could be a new opportunity to manifest money or to better utilize your skills and talents. At a deeper level, what you may need to consider is whether you are being true to the things you value. If not, how can you change this? Happiness often has little to do with how much money and security we have, for this can always be taken away. It has more to do with whether we honor the things we believe in and live a meaningful life.
Taurus: The Sun’s move into Taurus hails the return of your energy, motivation and joie de vivre. Now is the time when you can gain more control over your life. As you get nearer to the New Moon, it should become apparent that something needs to change. However, Saturn’s square to the Sun suggests a challenge or a struggle, and it may be too easy to fall into despondency if things don’t go as you planned. See any block as a test or a reality check, depending on whichever feels most appropriate. Saturn shows us our limits, and it might be better to cut away the dead wood and admit to your limitations while you determine what you can do. With the New Moon on the 23rd, you will be in a better position to move in a direction that honors who you are.
Gemini: The Sun’s move into Taurus is your clue to slow down a little and reflect on where you are. The past few weeks are likely to have been fairly active, and now you will benefit from adopting a slower pace or by remembering your connection to the Source. Turning within through quiet contemplation, solitude, meditation or time in nature will provide the inner nourishment and clarity you need, and as the New Moon begins to form, a particular situation might be emphasized. Something in your life now belongs in the past. It’s the letting go bit that may be tricky. Know that your doubts and fears are probably unfounded and that by closing a door and moving on, you will feel better.
Cancer: The Sun’s move into Taurus is good news for your friendships and connections, making this a good time to meet with people and forge alliances that feel meaningful. This is further increased by the New Moon on April 23, which will add sparkle to your social life but also bring opportunity for new beginnings with friendships, groups and organizations. On a bigger scale, this New Moon is about making a difference, getting involved in your community, or taking a step toward making a hope or dream come true. Take a stand and rebel against something you feel is detrimental, or find a cause you believe in and become involved with furthering its agenda. These are good uses of this New Moon.
Leo: Now is the time when you can begin to make progress in the outside world, particularly in your professional life. It may be time for a change, but first you might need to let something go. Quite often, we need to create a space for something new to manifest, and that is where we find you under the balsamic moon. Once the moon becomes new on April 23, it will be easier to see the way forward and to plant seeds for the future. Start small, but don’t be afraid to dream big. It may not seem like much is happening, but rest assured, things are beginning to move and shift. It won’t be long before you see evidence of this.
Virgo: As the Sun moves into your zone of adventure, it becomes important to untie yourself from whatever concerns or issues have been weighing you down in order to free yourself to embrace the possibilities heading your way. These may become more evident as the week progresses. As the New Moon forms on Thursday, it will be much easier to think positively and take that leap into the unknown.
Libra: The Sun shifts into Taurus on Sunday. It may help to try to strike a balance between independence and collaboration. How can you join with others and keep your identity at the same time? As the Sun changes signs and heads toward a New Moon, transformation and rebirth become your key themes. What can you let go of now that will make you feel lighter? Is there something that has potential but needs a little reworking? Could a more playful spirit provide the antidote to any heaviness?
Scorpio: The Sun’s arrival in your relationship zone activates your personal life, and you might be due for change. One relationship in particular could be posing problems, but the New Moon brings the opportunity to start over. Be prepared to approach the situation differently, though, for if you repeat old patterns, the problem will simply reappear. Perhaps the thing to keep in mind is to avoid dependency and restriction. Offering freedom and working toward independence may be the key.
Sagittarius: The approaching New Moon in your zone of organization suggests it’s time to get productive and streamline your life so that it works more efficiently. A radical shift might need to happen in order to do this. Our well-being depends largely on our daily habits: what time we get up, how much and how often we exercise, what we eat and when, how often we check our phones, who we associate with, whether we can find things when we need them, and whether we tend to matters when they arise or leave them for a later date. In the course of just one day, there are myriad actions that we take or don’t take that determine a particular result. It is likely that there is some aspect of life that could do with a minor tweak or a radical shift.
Capricorn: With the Sun’s move into your zone of self-expression and creativity, the question, “How can you be more yourself?” comes to mind. In what way are you compromising your integrity? In what way is someone or something diminishing your sense of self? What would you really love to do if you had the freedom to do so? With the Moon on Thursday, it might be time to break out and assert your right to be you.
Aquarius: As the week progresses, you might feel the need to return to home base to curl up and nurture yourself and those you care about. This quiet, introverted phase is rather at odds with Mars in your sign, so you may need to strike a balance between determined ambitious action and quiet time at home. The more time you spend at home, the more you might realize the need for change. Changes could apply to your home and family, but it may also be that something is stirring within. As the New Moon approaches, the need for change may give rise to a little discontent. If so, then try to tune into what this discontent is about. It simply might be that the time is approaching when you need to start something new and shed your old skin.
Pisces: The Sun’s move into Taurus and the New Moon are your invitation to change your attitude. It may help to identify repetitive thought patterns, those parts of your mind that replay the same scenarios or that are stuck in the same old patterns. It might have to do with money, relationships, work, wounds from the past, health or life overall. Whatever is sabotaging your success now, it’s a great time to become conscious of it and to try to see things differently. The ability to change how you see something is the key to your success.
