Weekly Horoscope for Apr. 11-17
Looking for the previous weekly horoscope?
Sunday, Monday (New Moon): the Moon is in Aries
Take some time to write down your ideas and outline the first approach to each of the projects. Mercury (mental efforts) and Venus (specialty efforts) are also currently in Aries, which ties in nicely with the Moon.
Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Taurus
The planets Sun, Mercury, and Venus are poised to move into the sign Taurus in the near future. Use this time to gather your thoughts and information re: finances & possessions. What do you value?
Thursday, Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Gemini
Mars is in Gemini right now and since this planet can stir up frustration to the point of aggression, make sure to remain as calm as possible no matter what situation comes to your attention.
When reading this weekly horoscope, check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well. For example, if the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain – however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place…then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place…have a party! It is also interesting to note when the current Moon is in the same sign as your birth Moon and to see how the flavor of that day carries through the following 30 days.

Note: Weekly horoscope time frames for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).
∗Mercury Retrograde – the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the ‘fritz’ during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. (Read More about Mercury Retrograde including Direct & In Station)
