Weekly Horoscope: April 11–April 17, 2021
Prepare for an especially busy week, as many planetary aspects link and cross in the sky. April 11 starts the week off with a bang as a new moon in Aries ignites. This lunation will kick start our plans as it is the first official new moon of the zodiac year. Now will be a time to assess our plans, desires, and goals and decide what we want to pursue. This is an excellent period for creating the life of our dreams.
However, we mustn’t wait for it to manifest on its own. Action is a top priority, so take the lead. This lunation will help determine your progress for six months to a year. Put your ego first! April 11 will also bring Venus in Aries into a square with Pluto in Capricorn, which triggers power struggles and tension in relationships. Control issues are nearly guaranteed, so do your best to stand up for yourself but don’t exacerbate drama for no reason.
April 13 brings a day filled with firepower, as the sizzling sun in Aries syncs with Mars in Gemini. Collectively, we will feel courageous, strong, and passionate. This energy can be utilized for any physical activity or fueled into one’s goals. Be confident as you take the lead and you could end up being especially productive. In personal relationships, this bodes well for charisma and sex appeal.
On April 14, goddess Venus dances into her home zodiac sign of Taurus. For the weeks ahead, this favors all relationships and financial matters. Existing partnerships will experience more sensuality and romance, while singles can search for someone with long-term potential. Now is a time to indulge in the physical senses. This particular transit is also especially auspicious for increasing prosperity and wealth, so take a look at assessing your budget.
April 15 links the sun in Aries in a sextile to Jupiter in Aquarius. This is a magnificent alignment, bringing forth good news, fortune, and favor. Our hopes will be high and we could see some of our dreams come true. Be open to new experiences and how you can help others.
The sun in Aries clashes in a square with Pluto in Capricorn on April 16. Avoid confrontations with authority figures. Crises could manifest which lead to destructive life experiences. Above all, lie low and do not put yourself in danger.
April 17 will bring forth the most planetary aspects of the week! Mars in Gemini will trine Jupiter in Aquarius, increasing your drive to win. Success could manifest through one’s assertive nature, and conquest could now be within reach! Mercury in Aries sextiles Jupiter in Aquarius and Mars in Gemini. This brings luck and opportunity by being direct in communication. Your judgment could be quite sound due to these alignments. However, our cosmic messenger will clash in a square with Pluto in Capricorn, causing us to dig to the heart of matters. Do not engage with conflicts or criticism, and instead, look to lead with integrity.
