The Stars This Week: April 9-15, 2012
Power Shifts!

Pluto's change in direction on April 10 begins this intense week, when you'll need to contend with those who have -- or to whom you have given -- power. Watch for pushy, argumentative people as warrior Mars finally turns direct on April 14. Finally, the Aries Sun opposes Saturn in Libra on April 15, at which time you'll be reminded to consider others as well as yourself.

April 10: Pluto turns retrograde
Ever since Pluto entered ambitious Capricorn in November 2008, you and the world have had to contend with a crumbling infrastructure. On a global level, the effects of this transit appear as governmental and economic reform, as well as the need to repair and rebuild bridges, roads and buildings. For you personally, this transit has made you aware of an area of your life that requires attention. Is it a relationship? Your career? Perhaps your finances? Pluto's retrograde asks you to restructure problematic areas as you examine what you want to build or accomplish. Make the most of this annual retrograde period by considering whether you should let go of something that isn't working, or by analyzing what you can do to improve your situation. Be sure to take your time, since Pluto's retrograde period lasts until September 18.

April 14: Mars turns direct
Action-packed Mars has been held in check since turning retrograde on January 23. During this time, you've been forced to be more conservative and rethink your projects and plans. Hopefully you didn't spend the last few months trying to open doors that weren't yet ready to open. As Mars changes direction, certain situations will inevitably come to an end, and you'll feel that it's time to move in a new direction. This is the month to get your revamped goals moving! However, nothing will move quickly yet, so resist the urge to push -- if you forge ahead recklessly right now, this energy is bound to become explosive. Don't panic, since you'll gain traction and momentum by May.

April 15: The Sun opposes Saturn
Saturn loves responsible individuals, and when a bold, but impatient Aries Sun meets this authoritative planet, it's time for an education. Take time to assess what you've built. Do you have a strong foundation for pursuing your goals? Or have you taken a few shortcuts along the way? Now is the time to straighten out any messes you've made so you can move forward without past mistakes holding you back. This aspect only occurs once a year, so take advantage of this opportunity to make things right. A few months from now, when you see the results of the positive steps you're about to take, you'll be glad you did!
