Horoscope for the week beginning April 1
Tip of the week
Eclipse season ends at the time of the next New Moon, which happens on April 7. What is also significant about this one is that it is in Aries. The Aries lunar cycle has a way of activating the accelerated momentum of spring. Last month’s solar and lunar eclipses sure did give it a boost, though.
Whatever key events they were destined to trigger are now underway and there are many at the collective level.
The upsurge in terrorist attacks in Europe, the Middle East and Africa will likely prove to result in an escalated and pivotal series of events activating things on the global scene. This adding to the ongoing wave of refugees the world over, but into Europe especially, reveals the birth of a new era, a global village. This is quite in keeping with the dawning Aquarian Age. Our human family must adapt to mergers between peoples on every front and at every level.
Clearly, the U.S. Presidential race is producing a lot of reaction and has gained global attention. It is ‘serving’ as a catalyst bringing to the surface a good deal of resistance, resentment and racism in that country. A core theme in the coming New Moon chart indicates that the plot we see unfolding on all these fronts will deepen in April. Stay tuned.

April 1 – 7
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Your mind has been opened. Your sights are set on the future. A growing sense of your individuality is taking hold. A rebellious, even punchy mood prevails. An array of dreams, hopes, wishes and prayers too, are competing for your conscious attention. Determined to make these manifest, you are ready to get to work. Your focus will increase over the coming days and weeks. Carpe diem!
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
An inner focus continues. Building your strengths, focus and resolve are featured. Acknowledging what makes you special is important to succeed. It has probably been difficult to focus over the past several weeks. All that is changing now. Yet, it will take a while longer before all your engines are fired. Outlining a plan backed by a realistic strategy will help you to feel the solid ground.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
There is writing on the wall. Hopefully it says what you want. Gaining glimpses of the future are also a challenge to remain present in the moment. Be careful of an overactive imagination that does not serve. Direct your focus to increasing your confidence. Homework is implied. Whether it is academic or literal, like spring cleaning, is for you to decide. Focus on the details and the facts.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
A visionary and fiery mood prevails. Some may even deem your attitude to be feverish. Your world is rocking and you are meeting it in kind. Digging deep, even getting to the bottom of things, feels necessary. Calling upon angels and higher agencies feels instinctual. Asking for support from others is featured as well. Take a strong lead but ask too and be open to receive.
Leo (July 22 – Aug 23)
The spring sap is running fast in your veins. Directing this surge of passions towards both practical ends and romantic ideals may require some discernment to keep things balanced. Achieving both will feel empowering. As much as you want to forge ahead quickly, circumstances are forcing you to be patient. Focus to achieve one clear goal a day and you will prevail. All the while, you feel playful and sporty.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Spring is a time of change for you. Engaging in some form of transformational activity is almost necessary. This can range from gardening to healing with a therapist. Yet, this year there is a new twist in the mix. Somehow it is different than it has perhaps been for many years. Seeing through and beyond as with fresh eyes is a good sign that you are in-tune.
Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)
Relationships are rising, or is it an upheaval? Something is sure shaking according to the planetary portrait. More patience and faith and giving to situations too, may be required. Keeping the peace may be challenging but may be exactly what is required. The situation may be described as ‘grace under pressure’. Positively, your energy levels continue to rise.
Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)
You are on a roll. It may even be described as a revolution. Some existing relationships may be under review and seriously in question. If you cannot achieve a breakthrough, there could be a breakdown. The emphasis may be more centred on your social life than your personal, however. This trend will continue. Regarding new relationships, seek people that you can genuinely work with.
Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)
Spring is igniting you to take action. You feel assertive, even aggressive. Eager to expand your horizons, a growing determination to break through lines of resistance is palpable. Balancing a cautious approach with an itch to gamble is guiding your choices. Establishing a solid foundation feels more important than ever. Reserve the right to do it your way.
Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)
Doing the inner work so you can expand your outward reach is a core theme now. Hardly in a superficial mood, you are determined to get to the heart of the matter. The delicate balancing act of dissolving old relationship involvements and/or patterns with deciphering the scope and degree of commitments is featured. Expect this round of the cycle to continue for the next few weeks.
Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)
It may seem as though with each new day your perceptions, thus your perspectives, are changing. This trend will continue, so you might as well accept it as your norm. Positively, this implies an accelerated evolutionary process. As it is the Age of Aquarius, you and your kind have been selected to lead the way by getting out of the way. Embrace the paradox, faithfully.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your ambitions are on a steady rise. This includes expanding your social horizons. Entertaining new possibilities and playing with ideas feels right. The time has come to take some key initiatives. This includes both getting and sharing new knowledge. You may feel the need for some downtime this weekend, but you enthusiasm levels will rise noticeably as the week progresses.
