Weekly Horoscope: April 25–May 1, 2021
Prepare for a rather volatile week, because many planets are crossing swords within the heavens above. When challenges manifest in the sky, they are mirrored here within our lives. This means that we are going to face some obstacles as we advance toward our goals and face changes within our relationships. Evolution is the only constant in life as we grow.
The twenty-fifth brings a sharp alignment between Venus in Taurus with Saturn in Aquarius. This square can create stress and tension in our relationships. We may be afraid of criticism and ignore problems. Depression and loneliness are also likely to show up. However, to surpass this frustration, it’s better to face issues head-on and put effort into our unions.
Firstly, this week, Mercury in Taurus also squares Saturn in Aquarius. This will exacerbate our gloomy thoughts and may elicit bad news that has a negative effect on our mental health and well-being. It’s wise to spend some time in solitude when facing more troubling emotions. Focus on work, which will allow you to avert some of the drama. Secondly, Mercury will catch up to Venus on this same day, forming a conjunction between the two in Taurus. This would normally be a tremendously wonderful energy that unites the mind with the heart. While we may want to tell someone we love them, it would be wise to be cautious because the sharp energy with Saturn is likely to bring disappointments and a cold response.
April 26 will bring an electrifying full moon in Scorpio, where secrets are likely to emerge. This lunation will be felt for days before and after and bring culmination to a matter we have been building toward for the past six months. Our intimate needs, desires, and passions will be thrust into the spotlight. As the full moon howls in the sky, prepare to dance with your shadow self.
This can often be a time of great intensity, but also offer us an opportunity for transformation and rebirth. However, as the full moon stands opposite Uranus, shocking and unexpected turns of events are guaranteed. Some of these could be great and well-received, giving us a chance to further our lives. However, some may elicit chaos, causing us to spiral in a whole new direction. Be cautious at this time.
God of the underworld, Pluto, turns retrograde on the twenty-seventh. The fact that he does so during the intensity of this lunation is not without reason. As Pluto rules Scorpio, it shows that something we have been feeling within—or kept hidden from our past—is likely to circle back now and in the months ahead.
April 29 links Mercury in Taurus in a sextile with Neptune in Pisces. This transit may ease our minds, as we are more open to spiritual and creative downloads. This energy will enhance intuition, so it is wise to listen to what the Universe is whispering.
Finally, to end the week, the sun unites in a conjunction with Uranus on April 30. This energy should be more favorable, as we are encouraged to break out of our comfort zone and fly. To maximize the energy of this union, keep an open mind and see what the world brings to you.
