Week of April 5
By Sylvie Chace
On Sunday, April 2, Venus transitioned from the passionate and fiery sign of Aries and into the watery depths of dreamy Pisces. The Venus retrograde has affected some more than others these past few weeks and now it’s getting ready to station direct in 27 degrees of Pisces. Sharp transitions is what oversees the coming weeks ahead. From seeking within, to going out and making things happen, to living inside of a shell to swimming in the vast ocean. What these transitions are will be different for everyone, but the shining spring sun brings a new hope for all the signs.”
Aries 3/21 – 4/19
Step back, Aries. You’ve been focusing in too closely on every tiny unsatisfying detail, every hiccup in your life is not a natural disaster. The bigger picture actually shows that the path you’re on just might be the right one, you just have to be open to seeing all of the things you’ve accomplished while you’ve been distracted by the little things.
Taurus 4/20 – 5/20
You’ve been wrapped up in yourself. It may feel like being in a washing machine on spin cycle, where all your emotions are surrounding you and pulling you back and forth in a vortex. Self reflection is a positive thing, Taurus. There are times we need to give in to the cyclical nature of our emotions, just don’t forget to come up for air and breathe in the world around you.
Gemini 5/21 – 6/20
You’ve been in need of a bit of balance. On one hand, you’re coming out of your winter shell and beginning to gain back that spring in your step, however it’s a vulnerable place to be in. You’ve been optimistic, yet guarded. You’re on a good path, Gemini. Out of all the signs, you can balance this duality with ease and charm. Never be afraid to take up the space you need.
Cancer 6/21 – 7/22
You may be feeling a bit paranoid, Cancer. Your crab claws are out and you’re trying to defend yourself but there’s no real threat in sight. Look around and see a vast and open world around you. You worked hard for this, so bask in the glory of total justice. Sometimes it’s harder to believe that good things are happening than bad, but every good thing you have you’ve gotten for yourself.
Leo 7/23 – 8/22
Stop and smell the roses! You finally have the time to sit with your life and feel content. Good things have been happening and you’ve been absorbing all the pleasures around you like a sponge. A word of caution for you, Leo, don’t go too far and push the boundaries of all the good in your life right now. Sometimes there can be too much of a good thing, and right now you need to enjoy the beauty in the small, but satisfying details of your surroundings.
Virgo 8/23 – 9/22
You may be finding yourself at an ethical crossroads. Where there is deep love and a powerful union in your life, what comes with that is emotional labor and effort to keep it stable. What does emotional work look like for you? You are capable of feeling intensely, so consider how you may implement your infamous work ethic into the relationships that surround you.
Libra 9/23 – 10/22
Let your calm nature inspire you. Be it a situation of high-tension, or perhaps having to be the middle-man in some sort of disagreement, your reasonable and gentle nature can carry you through anything. There is wisdom in being able to understand more than one side to any situation, and you may find yourself in a place to call upon that wisdom and be in touch with a more relaxed and mature side to you.
Scorpio 10/23 – 11/21
When others seek answers out in the tangible world, you tend to sit still and seek within, Scorpio. You are deeply in touch with your darkest innermost feelings and it is that side of yourself that is being focused on in a season of transition. You are the sign of total transformation and rebirth and it is because you feel these seasons of change so deeply. It’s okay to withdraw a little in order to adjust the blossoming world around you.
Sagittarius 11/22 – 12/21
The ultimate challenge for you in a time of transition is to sit still. There is no urgency, there is no rush at this moment, so why are you in such a hurry? Sit still and absorb the bigger picture of it all. Enjoy the life that you’ve built for yourself in this present moment. The future isn’t going anywhere and you are allowed to take your time to reach it.
Capricorn 12/22 – 1/19
Hold no fear, hold no remorse, Capricorn. As the saying goes, strike while the iron is hot! You are a sign of ambition, of achievement and right now that is where your focus is. Don’t be so single-minded that you become forgetful to the other components of your life, but this is a time to focus in on your goals and to shape them into a beautiful new reality.
Aquarius 1/20 – 2/18
You have never been afraid of the unknown, Aquarius. In fact, all that is obscure is exactly what you’re known for. You are being called to dive in deeper to your own life. Why does something feel unsatisfying? Why does something seem off? Look deeper into every situation and allow yourself to feel the seeds of change being planted. Everything is not what it seems on the surface.
Pisces 2/19 – 3/20
With Venus transitioned into your sign, you’re usually blurred outlook has now been clarified. Trust your intuition to show you what is true. You are about to embark on a new journey, and with that, new challenges will inevitably arise. You are someone who has been made to feel small, or who has been labelled ‘spacey’ or ‘too dreamerly.’ Your strength lies within your deep intuitive powers. You know what’s true, and no one should tell you otherwise.
