Although you're tested this week, you also have a network of supporters to help you figure things out. On April 22, when love planet Venus opposes stern Saturn, take a good look at the people with whom you're spending time. Luckily, Venus trines Pluto on April 24, when you experience first-hand what the power of love can do! An intense lunar eclipse in Scorpio on April 25 highlights your financial transactions. Finally, on April 28, as the Sun opposes Saturn, you get a good look at what's working in your life ... and what you might want to let go.
April 22: Venus opposes Saturn
Do all you can to not take this aspect's lack of appreciation personally. Rather, weigh the costs and benefits of your most important relationships. Are you spending time with quality people? Are you supporting others who should be taking care of themselves? Although this certainly isn't a light, happy aspect, if you can face the limitations of yourself and others, it will help you make realistic choices and establish healthy boundaries.
April 24: Venus trines Pluto
Now that you've hopefully conducted a thorough assessment of your most important relationships, this aspect opens your heart and soul to those worthy of your time and attention. You know what you want, and you know how you want to be loved; now you can enjoy an opportunity to connect deeply and passionately. If you want the real deal, now is the time to let go and surrender to the power of love!
April 25: Lunar eclipse in Scorpio
You've spent much of April focused on getting a financial plan together and trying to build additional security into your life. Now, you'll have to deal more intimately with others as this full Moon eclipse highlights joint finances, insurance matters, taxes, and anything else where your financial interests are tied to those of others. Allow plenty of room for opposite points of view, for full Moons are always a time of culmination offering a chance to stand back and assess your progress. Use the power of this full Moon to help you work with others to create win/win outcomes.
April 28: The Sun opposes Saturn
Is something holding you back? Once a year, when the Sun opposes Saturn, you get a good look at what's working in your life -- and what has outlived its usefulness. Certain situations may feel limiting, while others will feel remarkably solid. This is also a time when all your efforts over the past year begin to bear fruit. This year, the Sun is in reliable Taurus while Saturn resides in powerful Scorpio. Taurus and Scorpio are both money signs, so anything you can do to bring more financial balance into your life will help you in the long run.
