Horoscope for April 25 - May 1

Cross-posted from Aloha Astro

Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
Social connections are your primary focus this week, Aries. For the first half of the week, the lunar transit through your 11th house of friends, groups, organizations, and wish fulfillment keeps you very outwardly directed as you seek to expand your career reach and add to your social network. You may learn to use new technology or become more computer savvy while you have the urge to do things for yourself and become an expert in a chosen field. A romance may evolve from a friendship, or an existing relationship either becomes more supportive of your outer world activities or ends if it no longer is viable. The end of the week is a time to rest and renew yourself. By the beginning of next week, you will be shaking the dust off the plans you shelved during the recent Mercury retrograde. This is your busy season - make the most of it work-wise, but remember to take care of your physical needs for rest and play.

Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
You need a lot of quiet time now, Taurus. Internal processing is going on as you feed new information into your consciousness. Friends or a group may be on hand or nearby to act as sounding boards or encourage you, but no one will be deciding anything but you. Only you can know what you need or want. Now is a time to seek clarity and certainty before you take any actions. Once things are settled on the inside, things on the outside will fall into place, too. Mercury may have gone direct, but all those impatient, forward-moving Aries planets are being held back in the 12th house of your subconscious. The key is to find your own sense of safety and calm and not let the stresses or instability of life turn your attention away from your own personal path. Next month, you finally get to emerge and grow.

Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
You are quintessential Gemini to the power of ten, plus some ballast to keep you from flying away and a healthy dollop of intuition and gut instinct to point you in the right directions. Wow, this promises to be a super week for you in terms of creativity, work, relationships, social connections, and inner contentment. Normally, Gemini is mentally scattered and feels emotionally disconnected, but a nice blend of grounding and feeling planets in the right places in your chart is helping you stay in your body, pleasurably so, and tuned into the emotional vibes around you while still maintaining a genius level of mental lucidity. Sweet!

Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
If anyone has been thinking you are too soft, sentimental, or wishy-washy, they are in for a surprise this week, Cancer. I'm not sure if it's the bloodlust of the Mars-ruled Aries energy that has been dominating the top of your chart or the extra aspects to Pluto in your 7th house of relationship and the hidden self that occur this week that's making you go for the jugular, but I do know I wouldn't want to disagree with you or stand in your way. There is an extra emphasis on business advancement and gains through buying or selling property or other investments. Balancing home and family with career and work is the most difficult part of your week. Romance, dating, and friendships are a nice diversion.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Work and career is rocking now, Leo. You may be in high demand and scrambling to get it all done. This is a good time to increase fees, ask for a raise, or invest in things that improve your reputation or image or advance your business, such as signs, brochures, advertising, or tools that enable you to take on bigger jobs. Love is in the air, too. You may be wanting a commitment from someone or, if you are already in a relationship, you may be expecting more teamwork from your mate. The current planetary transits are stimulating your creative mind, helping you find solutions to problems easily. They are also reminding you of your higher, royal nature. All Leos have an inner king or queen and now is the time for you to show the world your majesty and your most noble qualities.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
A sale, job offer, or some other financial bonus may come your way at the beginning of the week, Virgo. In general, the entire week is very supportive of your getting what you want in terms of money, business, and relationships. If you are able to take a vacation to a distant location or do some local day-tripping, you may meet all kinds of interesting people. One of them could be your soulmate, if you are single and looking. The planets indicate you won't be home much while you are out pursuing pleasure or business. Pay attention to your diet and nutrition to keep your energy levels up and your immune system healthy. A crisis point or decision may be made at the end of the week that involves spending, receiving, or investing a large sum of money.

Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
Last week, you were Jell-O and this week, you are Hermione Granger, Libra. She's smart, she works hard, and people are oblivious to her physical beauty until she polishes herself up a bit and lets her femininity show. She doesn't let on how much she loves Ron Weasley (what she sees in him, I do not know, but opposites do attract), but wisely lets him come to his own realization of his love for her. If you don't know who I'm talking about, you will have to read or watch a Harry Potter book or movie. Anyhow, Hermione is quick with her wand and spells, and you will be equally powerful this week with your own magic wand and incantations. A make-or-break point in relationship may occur. Either way, there is an element of predestination involved that lets you know it's the right thing.

Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
Your mental power and psychic skills are running on high-test this week, Scorpio. You may feel like everything has been wiped clean in the aftermath of the Libra full moon and Mercury retrograde and you have a fresh slate, or maybe a lump of clay or lots of broken bits of mirror. I know you can make something of it. Some strong creative, healing, and stabilizing forces can help you form a new attitude, a new body image, a new diet or health regimen, a new job, or a new home situation. The planets are much lighter on you this week than they have been for a while now. This week, you can really know and feel that you can overcome opposition and make things go your way, rather than simply put up and endure.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Are you working for yourself, Sagittarius? If not, now may be the time to discover that you can apply yourself and excel at self-employment if you find something that always entertains you and constantly gives you new people or places to see. Your creativity is in overdrive and your restless nature wants to be social, while your desire for dollars and a home to return to is giving you the discipline and follow-through to stick with a job. The trick now is to create a job that conforms to you, rather than you having to conform to a job. You are feeling unlimited now. This weekend may bring you to a crisis point where you are able to see who and what limits you. It may be time to examine friendships and withdraw from friends who are negative or don't encourage you to reach your highest potential.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Asserting yourself or showing what you have established can increase your income now, Capricorn. This is a good time to update your resume, if you are looking for work, or update your profiles on singles sites or social networking sites. Self-promotion mixes with creativity now, which can assist you if you are a writer, performer, artist, or sales person. You are able to make a strong and lasting impression now, so it is important that you choose your words and behavior consciously. The weekend brings attention to your 4th house of home, family, and psychological foundations while activating your 10th house of career, reputation, and outer-world concerns. These are also parental houses and the multiple aspects to Pluto in your 1st house of self makes me think that a decision to become a parent may be reached now or, if you have parents who are elderly, a decision concerning the care of your parents may be reached.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
This may be the best week of the month so far, Aquarius. The moon starts the week in your sign and makes a powerfully positive aspect to planets in your 3rd and 9th houses, which rule thought, communication, and transportation. If you have a plan to launch, a problem to solve, a place to go, or something to ask for - do it at the beginning of the week while the planets favor you. On some level, you've decided to own your power, plow through any BS, and get what you want. If you are thwarted, you will simply flow like water around something and find another way. Persistent, relentless resolve gets you there. The weekend is less stressful for you than for some of the other signs. Relationships under stress may be more business- or student/teacher-oriented and have to do with rules and systems that could use revision. There are exceptions to rules and you may be the one to find them.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
A creative, spiritual retreat is in order at the beginning of the week, Pisces. For the last few weeks, the pendulum has swung toward the practical business of money and finding your own values. That is still a dominating theme, with money and business still being key features of your week, but the Muses are knocking on your door. They wish to deliver something to you in quiet dream, meditation, or journaling time that other people are hungry to hear or see. Lots of your energy has been flowing out actively and now it is time to sit still and receive. When you have escaped enough in creativity and appreciation of nature and springtime delights, you can get back to business with something fresh and new to present. The weekend may force you to restructure your business plans and could help you decide what aspects of a business you want to handle yourself and what parts are best delegated or outsourced to someone else.
