Horoscope for April 18-24

Cross-posted from Aloha Astro

Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
Making your life purpose your work, or making your work more meaningful, is the major task of your week, Aries. The recent full moon may have helped you to see that you are here to be of service, but that doesn't mean you can't make money or achieve personal success and recognition for your effort. The moon walks you through career advancement activities this week, from business plans, sales or money negotiations, establishing a reputation, marketing, and connecting with people or organizations that can assist you. It's not all about work and money, although you do crave money a bit more than love now. The planets are helping you be the flower to the bees. You don't have to actively pursue love while you are so attractive to others - just appear open and approachable.

Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
Your special blend of sensible and sensual makes you an ideal lover and mate, Taurus. Love is first and foremost on your mind this week. Some Bulls may be dreaming of their soulmate, others are ready to confess romantic interest to a potential partner who has been just a friend, and those who are already with a partner may be planning romantic retreats and a renewal or deepening of friendship and affection. The sun enters your sign this week, telling you it's time for some personal beautification and some shameless self-promotion. Feeling better about yourself and projecting a fresh, confident image helps you in business, career, and important meetings with people who may be able to help you get what you want. You can be kind without being perceived as meek or soft when you like yourself well enough to be assertive and tell people what you expect to receive.

Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
A practical, profitable business plan or job opportunity that also allows you to be of service may present itself at the beginning of the week, Gemini. You may join forces with a group or organization you can really identify with or perhaps they are poised to be leaders in their field and you will expand with them. You may think, "It's about time I found something that really works!" when it comes to realistic profit and demand for your product or service. Although the moon moves through relationship houses in your chart, the tone is not very romantic. The energy this week is more about friendship, cooperation, mutual enjoyment, and awareness of shared benefits than romance. That's just fine for the Gemini butterfly spirit.

Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
A desire for an intimate, meaningful relationship could help you plan a seduction or pursue romance this week, Cancer. Some Crabs may decide to become parents and conceive, or look into adopting a child. Your career and work life may be busy, but home and relationship are important business now. You want to feel sure and secure, have something worth working for that promises future growth, and a legacy of values and material wealth. I suppose you could say that you are wanting it all. One of the special talents for a Cancer is the ability to get what he or she desires, usually through unflagging devotion. What you really love comes to you.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Home and family are important to you at the beginning of the week, Leo. Some of you may be working on home improvement projects that will add value to your home or make your family more comfortable. Other Leos may be considering buying a home, relocating, or purchasing real estate as an investment. Midweek, you could have a creative or unusual idea for an invention or service that fills a need. It may seem logical or simple to you, but amazing to others. Don't let the simplicity keep you from turning it into a profitable business. When Venus moves out of watery Pisces and joins excitable Uranus in fiery Aries, you may be on the prowl for love that is less romantic and more physical. Don't be surprised if you catch yourself turning up the dial on the radio to songs like "Hot Blooded" or "I'm Too Sexy". Loving is something you excel at when you know what, or should I say whom, you want.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Some very wide and deep influences are at work in your chart, Virgo. There are so many possible scenarios that I am unable to be specific unless I know your age, life situation, and natal chart. Four words in succession came through as your baseline for the week: plan, stabilize, create, disseminate. There may be positive and unexpected changes in your home life or a windfall through taxes or investments. A decision to meet a soulmate or take a present relationship to a deeper level comes about as a result of planetary positions and aspects that make me think of the slogan "California or Bust" people in the 1930s used when heading west for greener pastures. In your case, the banner your spirit is waving says "Love or Bust". Your desire, plus a single-minded determination to have the relationship of your dreams, can make it happen.

Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
If you were Jell-O, Libra, I would say you are setting in a mold this week. I know that is a very silly image to explain the planetary energy, but I'm under oath to say it as I see it. Orders from the Universe are, "Chill until firm." Grounding, stabilizing, integrating, allowing, working at foundations, communicating and working with a deliberate intent, and looking for a perfect presentation or end result. That's all. Apply the Zen of Jell-O to love, home, and work. When you think about it, Jell-O is kind of fun and creative, with lots of flavor and color choices, so I don't think your week will be boring - just stabilizing.

Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
This is a week of self-assertion, Scorpio. The planets are offering you a bit more support and clarity than they have the last few weeks. Believe in yourself and even cop an attitude of self-entitlement in situations where you are having to ask for things. Avoid comparing your situation to that of anyone else and thinking, "How come they blah, blah, blah - and not me." You know better than most that appearances can be deceiving. If you look carefully at the wording, you see that the negative statement blesses them with HOW (the way) COME (it's coming!) THEY (to them), effectively re-sending more of what your re-sent-ment wishes you would have. Now, you may be wondering why your horoscopes have been poking at your dark side recently. You are in a process of accelerated lightening and self-mastery. You can't ignore your shadow. You have to accept it and work with it.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Do you feel lucky, blessed, or rich, Sagittarius? The feelings of awe, wonder, and gratitude can work some magic in your life now. An unexpected windfall or work opportunity may come in right behind the good feelings. Worry less and wonder more. Money may move in and out in larger sums than you are comfortable with, but it is working capital that is improving your life or expanding your business. Take your original ideas or creative efforts to a larger audience. Perhaps you need something like a patent, a buyer for a larger company, a publisher, or manager who can get orders for you or help you grow and reach more people. Focus on what you do well and find someone to do the parts of the job you don't like or don't do well. Refine your talent and define your role.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
If you are wanting to improve yourself and change your life, Capricorn, look to your friends or a life coach for help. Sometimes other people see things about us we cannot or they can offer modalities we are not able to find on our own. Personal growth, transformation, improved creativity, and manifesting ability are your focus this week. Friends, groups, or mind-expanding methods, like meditation or hypnosis, are your tools. It may sound cliché, but releasing old programs, possibly instilled by your parents in early childhood, is important now. This can be a week of personal breakthroughs for you. When the weeds are pulled, you can plant new seeds of creative thought.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
The most important thing you can do this week is change your mind, Aquarius. If you want to be taken seriously or make your abstract ideas concrete and profitable, take yourself seriously. Commit a plan to paper and make a schedule. You love to share thoughts with others and talk about what you know and love. People want to hear what you know. The difference between an amateur and a professional is attitude and money. You can dissolve money fears and heal self-worth issues that hold you back from greater success this week.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Issues of help are indicated this week, Pisces. Like your opposing sign, Virgo, your horoscope is not clear this week because of the broad range of possibilities. Will you be offering help to another or will you be seeking help? Maybe some of both. It looks like a gathering of information is followed by a presentation of what has been learned, or a request or application for what is needed follows the fact-finding. This presentation or request could be the needed drop of water that will make your cup runneth over career- or business-wise. The last few Mercury retrograde weeks may have been busy ones for you if you have been studying money, making business plans, or working on your self-esteem or marketing programs. Now you may see your work begin to pay off.
