The astrology forecast for the week of April 4, 2022 through April 10, 2022 features four major aspects (Mars conjunct Saturn, Mercury sextile Saturn, Mercury sextile Mars, and Mercury square Pluto) and Venus and Mercury change signs.
So, the cosmos picks up speed this week. Let’s dive right in!
The headliner this week is Venus moving out of Aquarius and into Pisces, the sign of her exaltation. This is good news, because Venus has been in Saturn ruled signs (Capricorn and Aquarius) since November 5, 2021, and she has been copresent with Mars and Saturn in Aquarius (part of the time besieged) since early March.
So, now Venus is free to do her thing, and since she is copresent with Jupiter (also in Pisces), we should begin to see a lightening of the energy and improvements in love and finances. Also, note the house where Pisces is located in your chart, and the two houses that Venus (Taurus and Libra) rules, because they will also see an upswing.
The positive way to work with Venus in Pisces (because there are dysfunctional applications like codependency and idealization) is to use this energy to improve relationships, and this may include some necessary self-sacrifice.
All relationships go through troubles, difficulties, and sometimes get off track. Now is an excellent time to do some inner work to see where your relationships problem areas are, and do what you can to improve them. Since Venus is in Pisces, the ability to empathize and be compassionate is amplified, which allows compromises to occur and healing to begin. Remember, Venus will also be in Pisces for your partner, so it’s easier to achieve reciprocity in relationships. If compromises cannot be achieved, the healing may begin when you accept the relationship is beyond repair, and that you need to begin loving yourself by making difficult decisions about your relationship’s future.
There is one warning: when working on relationship issues and compromising, do not lose sight of your boundaries.
Monday April 4, 2022
We start the week off with a nasty Mars-Saturn configuration. Mars conjoin Saturn is extremely frustrating, and it feels like driving with your brakes on. You may feel that people are obstructing or working against you, and you may need to push away negative thoughts if they surface. On a more positive note, this aspect is good for work that requires stamina and focus.
Tuesday, April 5, 2022
In addition to Venus moving into Pisces, the Moon moves through chatty Gemini. You will feel the need to socialize and share your ideas and opinions with your inner circle or network. Perhaps an afternoon lunch or playdate is on the menu.
Wednesday, April 6, 2022
The Moon continues to move through Gemini and forms beneficial aspects to the Sun, Mercury, and Saturn. It’s an excellent day for business related matters, especially if contracts and legal negotiations are involved. Furthermore, if you need to resolve a legal matter, this is a great day to begin the process of getting that done.
Thursday, April 7, 2022
Mercury in Aries forms a helpful sextile to Saturn in Aquarius. This is an auspicious day to take an honest look at your life and see what needs to change. Sometimes, we get caught up in our daily rituals, so that we fail to take a moment to do an honest inventory of our lives. Mercury sextile Saturn is the perfect aspect to do so. Additionally, Mercury sextile Saturn is an excellent time to work on projects that require precision and focus.
Friday, April 8, 2022
Mercury in Aries sextiles Mars in Aquarius. Issues that may have occurred on Monday due to Mars’s conjunction with Saturn will have the opportunity to be resolved, as long as you are willing to negotiate. You may need to put your ego on a shelf, at least momentarily, and use careful thought to achieve results. Furthermore, Mercury sextile Mars gives you the initiative to take advantage of any opportunities you are presented with at this time. Since this aspect is favorable, matters will usually turn out positive. So, if you need to act, don’t hesitate to do so.
Saturday, April 9, 2022
The Moon moves through Cancer and during the morning hours forms a lovely trine to Jupiter and Neptune. It’s a great day for family activities, and checking in on your relatives. If you need to do any home repairs, today would be an excellent day to get them done. However, be on guard this evening because the Moon squares Mercury, and minor communication issues are likely to occur.
Sunday, April 10, 2022
The end of the week brings us two cosmic events – Mercury in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn, and Mercury leaves the sign of the ram and heads into earthy Taurus.
During the early morning hours, Mercury squares Pluto. Mercury square Pluto is a tricky aspect, because it’s extremely compulsive and leans towards obsessive thought patterns. Try to avoid pushing your view on others, because it may lead to potentially unnecessary conflicts. If you are obsessed with an idea or have intrusive thought patterns, use distraction or self-soothing to minimize their effects.
Later in the day, Mercury moves out of Aries and into Taurus. Rather than understanding life through potentials and possibilities, we are now face to face with the real world of facts. While Mercury is in Taurus, it’s an excellent time to slow down and investigate matters before coming to a decision. Use careful thought and consideration at this time.
See you next week!
