- Weekly Astrological Forecast for April 16, 2018
April 16 through April 22, 2018
One thing is for certain this week, if you’re ready for some grounding and stability, the Sun will do just that when it enters Taurus late in the day on Thursday. Aries energy is always great for bringing out our creative sides and getting things going after a long winter’s nap, but I think we’re all ready for some more balanced and easy going movement. We’ll have two outer planets turning retrograde this week, and though the effects are much more subtle than a Mercury retrograde, for example, these planets will remain in backward motion for the next 5 months, creating long term transformation and change. Saturn turns retrograde on Tuesday, generating a sense that red tape and boundaries will be easier to get beyond for the next few months, while Pluto turns retrograde on Sunday. Pluto is more a generational planet with social influence, so we may not feel the effects personally. However, we should see some changes on a global level, where the karmic nature of this planet will go back and see about righting a few wrongs and restoring spiritual balance over the next five months. To celebrate the Sun’s entry into Taurus, focus on beautifying your life, taking things easier and taking time to congratulate yourself and others for the major accomplishments they’ve completed over the last four months!

There’s magic in the air this week, so let’s get ready to see some amazing astrological sleights of hand! Mercury will be slowing down to go direct on Sunday, which could cause a few electronic glitches as it does, so maintain higher awareness and don’t hesitate to back track if something seems amiss, especially since the Moon will be in Aquarius the first three days of the week! As the planet of communication slows down though, we’ll start to experience some interesting “aha” moments, where the answers to blocks will appear and the true spiritual reasons things didn’t go the way we expected this last few weeks start to appear. Looks like we were being protected, rather than restricted! Most of these surprise messages appear on Thursday and Friday when the spiritual Pisces Moon shifts our perspective to the bigger and more metaphysical picture. Mercury will officially turn direct on Sunday, but give it a few days to reclaim it’s balance before you sigh a sigh of relief! Shortly after the new Moon will occur in Aries, and because this moon is a bit of an emotional risk-taker, feel free to express yourself more openly, take a leap of faith or try your hand at something brand new – the results will be wonderful!

April 2 through April 8, 2018
Faith and balance are the keywords this week, as we move through a time of effort and structure. Let’s all remember that our goals are worth working for, even if we can’t quite see them manifesting at this point. As the Astrological new year kicks into high gear, it’s our hopes and dreams that will keep the fires of hope burning. The week begins with a Scorpio Moon which will add intensity and focus to anything we’re doing, followed by a Sagittarius Moon on Wednesday and Thursday. Take this opportunity to rebalance things on a personal, emotional and physical level, as things heat up again on Friday when the Moon enters Capricorn and spend the rest of the weekend inspiring us to get busy! It’s a great time to clean out the closet, hold a garage sale, or immerse ourselves in our favorite outdoor activities and home improvement projects. So capitalize on the Mars energy in the air and get moving!
