The Week Ahead: April 17 - 23

Let it be said that now is the right time to be a TAURUS – especially on Wednesday when the Sun enters the sign of the Bull at 5:27 pm ET. Happy Birthday to all wonderful, lovable Bulls!*

This week is full of ups and downs. Pluto goes retrograde, forcing the most philosophical to reconsider recent decisions and agreements. Just don’t wait too long to reverse one or two of those decisions. Pluto’s retrograde begins on the 20th, challenging all of us to eliminate alliances, habits, and activities that pull us down instead of lifting us up. Pluto’s retrograde cleanses our spirits, attitudes and connections with others.

The Sun isn’t the only heavenly body changing signs – Mars scoots out of Taurus and enters chatty Gemini on April 21st, making life more vibrant for Gems, Libras and Aquarians. This Mars transit continues for about six weeks of experimentation, adventure and insightful change. Most Gems will finally exhale and explore new opportunities, big passion, and more than their fair share of alluring obsessions. Come to think of it, it’s not a bad week for Gems, either!

Also occurring on the 20th and 21st is a Venus-Saturn square, putting all mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) to reconsider recent decisions about all kinds of relationships, money matters, and self-worth. The faster mutable signs try to go, the behinder they get!

To sum this week up, change is inevitable and not nearly as easy as it may sound on Monday. Try to patiently apply what you learn during Pluto’s cleansing retrograde to every element of your life. Pluto’s retrograde requires plenty of maturity, patience, and wisdom. You’ll have between now and the end of September to achieve a semblance of balance. On September 28th, Pluto finally goes direct, urging you to apply some of the wisdom you’ve learned....
