Astrology for the Week of April 2 thought April 8
“Should of , would of, could of” is the theme this week as Friday’s chart features a grand assortment of the stress aspect, the inconjunct, thrown like so many pick up sticks on Friday’s chart.
Inconjuncts indicate uncharted territory for your soul. You don’t have map, heck, you don’t even have a flashlight, let alone a clue as where you are going. The tools for dealing with an inconjunct are faith and hope. And plan. Definitely make a plan.
This week inconjuncts directly touch late degrees of Aries, Taurus, Leo, Libra, Capricorn and Aquarius. Don’t think however, if you aren’t one of these signs you are in the clear. There is more than enough inconjunct action to go around, and they don’t mind sharing the wealth.
Aries—The issue, Aries, is courage. When something is abstract, say, laying down your life for your country, you have no trouble rushing in where angels fear to tread. Finding courage for the concrete is another matter, and here you are locked in between Uranus, to which you cling for freedom, and Venus, the realization of your desires as Saturn, at the apex of a Yod, tells you, it’s time to FOCUS. Will you?
Taurus—Deep desires occupy your thoughts as you muddle through your latest relationship issue. You don’t want to do anything to upset the apple cart, but aren’t those apples a little over ripe right now? Don’t be diverted by glittery things, and you can make it through OK.
Gemini—For this weekend, your sign’s ruler, Mercury is shifting into the sensual sign of Taurus, which is at the apex of a Yod with the Moon, and Saturn in Libra at the base. All I can say is “Oh, you naughty thing, you.” And remind you that despite the intensity of the sensations you feel, they are just that and not the basis of a long lasting relationship.
Cancer—Perhaps your biggest problem right now is that you are feeling disconnected from people, places and things. What is happening is that you are spending too much time reflecting on things in the past that you can’t change now. Reach out to others and show them you care.
Leo—You are meant to lead, but what you don’t like is being forced to do it. With Mars in your sign, you have a need to lead the charge, but you aren’t allowed to take things where you want to go. Your best move is to connect with your higher self to take advantage of the wisdom contained there.
Virgo—With a to do list that is overflowing, you need to pare it down to the essentials. You always want to get everything done, but that is not practical or realistic. Be kind to yourself so you have the energy to be kind to others.
Libra—There is one card interpreted by tarot master Eileen Connolly, the six of swords, reversed, as ‘you are locked into a difficult set of circumstances. There is nothing you can do, just wait.’ That is your life right now. Relationships are a burr under your saddle, but there isn’t much you can do. Meditate.
Scorpio—You are being pushed beyond your limits as the planet of war challenges your Sun. Quiet times and pleasant times with friends seem to be put on hold as you are made to pay strict attention to your work responsibilities. People notice your attention to detail.
Sagittarius—Others annoy you with their plodding ways and thick head attitudes. You are ready to cut through the BS, spoiling for a fight. Unfortunately for you this will not obtain the results you want, but rather mark you as an unreasonable hot head. Use your natural charm instead.
Capricorn—Money and or love interests seem poised for a major transformation, but like a deer in the headlights you freeze not sure of the correct action to take. Oh snap! You are just going to have to talk about this with someone. Can you stand actually revealing your true feelings?
Aquarius—The Waterbearer has no patience for anything that curtails his or her freedom and here you are with a whole bunch of people yapping at you to act this way or that. It is important to put your listening ears on and try to respond in a positive way even as you grit your teeth doing so. That way you won’t come off looking so bad.
Pisces—Your dreams, bizarre as they might be of late, are keys to issues that are troubling you. Your intuition is heightened, though you are not necessarily quite on target with your perceptions. Pisces is used to ambiguity, but this is ridiculous. Find some sort of native guide to help you make sense of it all.
