The Stars This Week: April 7-13, 2014
Make a Plan!

This week gives you a head start on planning thoughtfully for the month ahead. First, communication planet Mercury enters fiery Aries on April 7, adding plenty of sparks -- and sparkles -- to your ideas and conversations! When retrograde Mars opposes the Sun on April 8, you'll need to stand back and strategize your future plans and projects. Venus then conjuncts Neptune on April 11, proving that romance and love can survive and thrive, even when you're extra-busy!

April 7: Mercury enters Aries
New, bold ideas and fun conversations are plentiful during the communication planet's transit through the first sign of the zodiac! Use this time to connect with people who stimulate your thinking, encourage you to break out of past habits, and embrace your future with open arms. Do keep in mind, however, that Aries is the planet of war, so try not to become embroiled in arguments; otherwise, you'll find yourself bogged down and unable to gain traction on your great ideas. Direct your energy toward achieving your goals to take full advantage of this transit, which lasts until April 23.

April 8: Mars opposes the Sun
The feisty red planet is now midway through its retrograde cycle in this opposition, an aspect that occurs only once every two years. When Mars turned retrograde on March 1, your plans and projects likely encountered significant delays. However, you've hopefully used this time to strategize and plan ahead for when Mars turns direct on May 20. Nothing has been moving quickly during this aspect ... so don't push! Instead, step back and assess where you'd be wise to invest your energy. Don't be influenced by impatient people trying to force something to happen. Time is your friend now.

April 11: Venus conjuncts Neptune
In the midst of an energy-filled week -- and no matter what you need to get done -- open your heart and make time for romance as the planet of love joins Neptune in dreamy Pisces! This is an excellent time to strengthen the bond of your current relationship ... or if you're single, to meet someone who may sweep you off your feet! With all this wonderful romantic energy, just make sure you don't ignore problematic personality traits, as sometimes this planetary combination can act as a pair of rose-colored glasses, making it difficult to see people clearly.
