Weekly Horoscope for Apr. 7-13

Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Taurus
Mercury and Venus in Pisces are quietly behind the scenes in the money area of your life. However, Mars in Gemini is located a little off center (to the Moon); there may be some hesitation or the opposite – an impetuous action in the atmosphere. Be careful so that you don’t end up being disappointed. Your deep intuition is your best guide.

Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Gemini
Mercury and Venus are now square the Moon and Mars is conjunct (in the same sign) as the Moon. The middle of this week may be more than a little problematic since Mars rules (is associated with) confrontations and arguments and a square aspect (connection between planets) indicates challenges or obstacles.

Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Cancer
Things kind of calm down now; support for yourself and for others is indicated. Take  some time to be in a real comfortable, cozy place.

Saturday: the Moon is in Leo
Do something very special and fun this weekend. Kick off your shoes and act like a kid!

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, 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! Don’t have an astrology chart? Click here .

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).

▪ v/c = Void-of-Course – When the Moon is void-of-course, spend time working on projects already in progress, creative endeavors, or self-improvement. Void-of-course simply means that no planets are aspecting the Moon as it gets ready to change signs; there won’t be a configuration of astro energy available to utilize. It’s best not to start new projects, sign important agreements, or go shopping when the Moon is void-of-course because the result will probably be unsatisfactory in some way.

∗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)
