Everyday Life / Profession: This week begins with the Moon in Aries, which prepares us for Venus’s return to Aries on Friday, when the Moon reaches Mars, and Mercury reaches Uranus. With this, the element of fire is strongly emphasized quite suddenly, and with it, the desire to begin something new and exciting. That suits the Taurus New Moon, which pushes for it to be something practical, useful, and long lasting. When the planets work together well, success is nearly guaranteed. With its change of signs, Venus, which rules the New Moon, will attempt to leave the difficult psychological and interpersonal times behind it, as well as the material bottlenecks. While last week only a slight hint of hope was felt, this week it is already a light wind, which animates our mind (Mars in Gemini, air element), and gives us the desire to become more active and mobile. On Friday we experience a volcanic eruption that gets us moving. Partnership / Love: Before one rediscovers the love of life, one must suffer and doubt. Meanwhile, Venus has “done so” quite extensively, and we have felt it above all in interpersonal matters. With its move into Aries, a new hope should be experienced again, and even before Venus has taken this step, the Moon (Aries, then Taurus New Moon) puts us in an expectant mood. The lust for life is back, and relationships also get a new momentum, even quite suddenly this weekend.
Everyday Life / Profession: Did you recognize something essential for yourself last week? Venus is only in Pisces until the end of the week and has wrapped up its awareness-raising mission. After Pisces comes Aries… Mercury is still retrograde, now in Aries again, and it meets Uranus straight away. Translation: keep moving forward in Aries fashion, but in the future do it differently. If we consider Venus and Jupiter in Libra, the inclusion of other people and other opinions is required. That has become more difficult in recent months. The trenches have deepened. People were no longer open for revolutionary new perceptions and have always immediately identified an “enemy camp.” Bridge-builders had a hard time, and sometimes they only offered to build bridges in select areas because they themselves had become one-sided. Can you relate to that? Can that really change now? Partnership / Love: Have you experienced a type of surrender? It is not easy for people who are so used to success to endure something like that and to admit to their own weaknesses. When it has happened, though, new possibilities open up. You will certainly welcome that, and this week you get new confidence with the help of the Aries Moon and the Taurus New Moon. Things are looking up again, and you are amongst the first people who feel that way.
Everyday Life / Profession: Retrograde Mercury has reached Aries by now and conjoins Uranus on Friday. Which ideas could or would you like to start with? It is worth considering that a bit longer. Mercury makes a loop and captures the idea (Uranus) like a lasso, but in slow motion. There appear to be a few desires that you need to discover first. Maybe you need to give yourself the permission to have such desires? At the same time, Venus moves into Aries, where it was in February and March. Can you remember the goals and desires that did not seem viable then? Why was that so? What was the actual problem? Was it perhaps only a preliminary problem? The sign of Aries is now more emphasized again, and with it comes courage and the desire for brave deeds. Mars in Gemini is nimble and ready for action, so that you no longer block yourself too much. Turn your perfectionism off for once. Partnership / Love: Venus moves away from the tension with Saturn, which you will experience as a liberation by the end of the week at the latest. Maybe the Aries Moon will give you a sense of that at the beginning of the week, maybe you can already feel Mars in Gemini, which has a talent for not taking things too seriously and occupying itself with people who are exciting and exhilarating… Maybe you feel Mercury’s desire for humor and unconventionality, which it would like to enjoy through its prolonged encounter with Uranus? Opportunities to flirt are headed your way.
Everyday Life / Profession: The passive (passive resistance?) is now turning active. At the beginning of the week, the Aries Moon provides the corresponding prevailing mood, and so does Mercury in Aries, which approaches Uranus and conjoins it on Friday (flashes of insight, rebellion). Venus, also in Aries, as well as Mars in Gemini (joy of movement) indicate an activation. You get the noticeable desire to leave behind the drawn-out difficulties with momentum, and you succeed this week, at least partially. Mars in Gemini stokes your impatience, so that there is the danger that you will not appreciate the small acts of progress enough and become dissatisfied again. Those in your midst experience you as easily irritated. Mercury, in such close proximity to Uranus, is like a hand that comes too close to the stove. Or like a person who reads forbidden (because they are rebellious) texts. Or like someone who has “false” friends, who provide “stupid” ideas. You do not experience anything as “false” or “stupid,” rather as highly stimulating. Partnership / Love: The constellations give a boost to your desire to get yourself out of an oppressive situation and go away in peace. The thing about going in peace, however, is not so simple. Mars in Gemini and the Aries Moon jostle a bit. With the Taurus New Moon calm and level-headed action is the goal, but when you are successful in maintaining outer peace, it will vibrate within you. Relationship issues are on the table and cannot escape, they will just stay there.
Everyday Life / Profession: You would like to build on the success you have already experienced, and this time do it differently, without damaging your image or other types of “losses.” The constellations encourage you to try again, and perhaps you need to go further this time than last time, risk more and deliberately put something on the line. Mercury dances tightly around Uranus, wants to tease out unusual ideas or discuss them again, in order to test their feasibility. Saturn in a trine to that, and also the Taurus New Moon, put the feasibility, the implementation of the idea, in the foreground. These are very favorable conditions to work on a new goal. Venus leaves the difficult configuration and moves into Aries on Friday, where it will be open to everything new and gives her blessings. Friday is a special day, not just because of Venus in Aries. Partnership / Love: Your private life is how it is. If you can see it that way now, you can take the pressure off yourself. At the end of the week, Venus moves from sensitive Pisces into enterprising Aries. Perhaps you have an idea for a communal activity that your partner will go wild about? You can create a new mood by turning your attention toward pleasant and interesting things. The planets promote mobility and intellectual stimulation.
Everyday Life / Profession: You have made a decision and get some fresh air to breathe, a new perspective. The Aries Moon and the Taurus New Moon indicate it. Mars in Gemini shows that you are putting your feelers out and seeking useful contacts. Venus intensifies this on Friday when it moves into Aries and broadens your horizon. Is there anyone who you consider to be an outsider, not taken seriously or just overlooked? (Uranus) Maybe there is also a person, who you did not really like until now (Venus-Saturn), and who you see with new eyes? New impulses are to be expected where they had not been suspected. You have to break the thought framework (Mercury-Uranus), discover something entirely different and make it useful for the future. Partnership / Love: Your partner is hopefully not the person who you have not taken seriously or have overlooked? Check carefully. In case you should identify them as such, you have to prepare for a radical change. Because this weekend your partner will have lost all desire to be disregarded and will act quite headstrong. The same thing could happen in reverse if you are the one who does not feel appreciated enough. In the best case scenario, you go new ways together.
Everyday Life / Profession: Life offers you a lot of things to look at. You should not just be a spectator, but fulfill a meaningful function. Mars in Gemini suggests that you act as a liaison to reconcile very different parties or to get them at one table for negotiations. The aspect between Mercury and Uranus stands for brainstorming. People arrive at better solutions together. The basis for this is that everyone is viewed as fully-fledged and taken seriously. The devaluation that Venus has revealed in the last three weeks has to be overcome. Have women not gotten enough chances to speak? It does not have to have been women, there are also some other groups in society who are constantly not heard or respected enough. Partnership / Love: The Aries Moon shows that we have suffered enough by now and that we would like to realign our relationship life. Venus needs a few more days until it reenters Aries, like in February, but this time it will do things quite differently. Your own value cannot become lost when natural differences become visible. Everyone has human dignity. Whoever does not get that is not ready for a relationship.
Everyday Life / Profession: Most of the planets are in the sign opposite Libra so that you experience their qualities in direct personal interaction and exchange with other people. Even Venus is opposed to Libra and this week changes its quality fairly radically. Along with the sign of Pisces, it leaves permeability, adaptability, and sacrifice behind. In the sign of Aries, it stands for its own impulses and the ability to put up a fight. Venus shows that we have the work of self-worth behind us. Anyone who constantly cares for other people has – hopefully – asked themselves why they are sacrificing themselves so much, and whether they are not doing it for themselves in the end, in order to feel valued. Behind this is a remnant of self-love that must be discovered. Venus in Aries is a hint that the search for self-love is successful. You notice it in direct personal contact and exchange with other people. Partnership / Love: Does your relationship need a revolution, fresh air? The planets seem to have exactly that in mind, and the Aries Moon puts you into the right mood right at the beginning of the week. Mercury in Aries dances around Uranus and can get extremely sassy. Is this a real challenge, or is it simply the famous competition between two people who love each other? Would you even really like to know? Too much knowledge could destroy the charm.
Everyday Life / Profession: Venus is still in the difficult constellation that has already been described, but these days are numbered, so that Venus is already pregnant with its new position in Aries. The Aries Moon prepares the way and announces the Taurus New Moon, which points the way. Venus not only ruled the last Libra Full Moon, but also rules this New Moon. The Full Moon had a cosmetic flaw because Venus saw itself put into question. With the New Moon Venus is almost on the cusp of Aries and does not have a good, secure status in such a position. Venus will not be in on it because it is not in Venus’s nature to assert itself. The masculine signs are emphasized, and with Mercury-Uranus, it is placed on the masculine spirit, which has “higher, faster, farther” in mind. The (feminine!) Taurus New Moon could make use of an idea of this spirit, in order to appreciate Venus in the end. Partnership / Love: Have you suffered enough? Definitely. You are right if you no longer desire the victim role. Happiness must look quite different. The constellations invite you to find something you lost. The Aries Moon on Monday lets you feel that there is something to discover or conquer. The Taurus New Moon sets your relationship as the goal. An encounter draws you from the woodwork and confirms your new openness.
Everyday Life / Profession: Do you intend to do or say something quite outrageous? Mercury, which dances tightly around Uranus until mid-May, lets you play with the possibilities of expression or build on a revolutionary idea that recently cropped up. Mars in Gemini indicates flexibility. Today you can act one way and tomorrow a totally different way, because you came to an important realization overnight. The Taurus New Moon shows that you want to experience stability in your workplace and in your daily life, and that you are doing something concrete about it now. That looks like a good idea that you will bring to reality. As of Friday, Venus will enter Aries for the second time this year, and helps you to make up for something. Mercury encounters Uranus for the second time. Was your idea not taken seriously the first time? Was it too unusual? At second glance, it is no longer so strange… Partnership / Love: If you experienced Mars’ switch from Taurus into Gemini as a breath of fresh air, this new feeling will be intensified by the Aries Moon at the beginning of the week. In case you have not noticed anything yet, you will notice it now. The Aries Moon and the Taurus New Moon awaken the spirits of life, and stimulating encounters are called for in this alert state, above all this weekend (Venus in Aries = desire to conquer, Mercury-Uranus = witty contacts).
Everyday Life / Profession: The Aries Moon shows that you have combative situations around your domestic environment that serve to further develop your sense for questions of power. The Taurus Sun forms the Taurus New Moon with the Moon on Wednesday and gives you stamina that is very important now. Mercury, now extremely close to Uranus, and the Gemini Mars indicate a disturbance that can easily distract you, but precisely that should not happen any more. Think of a tree that stands firmly rooted in the ground. When the storm comes, the branches are shaken fiercely, and in distress one or the other branch can break off, but the tree remains standing and defies the forces of nature. With your concentration on yourself in the midst of a troubled time, you give yourself and those around you the necessary support. Partnership / Love: Mars has switched signs. Venus will change signs on Friday. After that, both love protagonists are en route in compatible signs. That means that for this week, you can hold on to the few good moments that you had last week. Through the sign changes, Mars and Venus indicate a necessary change in interacting with one another. People give each other more space and through that become more interesting to each other.
Everyday Life / Profession: Will and strength! You will clearly feel what was missing last week during the Aries Moon and with the following Taurus New Moon. Sometimes, something has to disturb us for a while and be unpleasant so that we get into gear and make a change. When the Moon encounters Mars in Gemini on Friday, almost at the same time that Venus moves into Aries and Mercury reaches Uranus, the impulse to do something intensifies. You identify again with the willingness to act and the desire for movement. It could be that out of aesthetic or health reasons you become active because you would like make your body fit again. That would not be a bad start, because every physical activity will also have an effect on your state of mind, and thus you are casually programming yourself for success. Partnership / Love: The constellations that are changing now are certainly going to change your love life. Mars in Gemini will make it easier to make contact and have fewer negative expectations. When Venus arrives in Aries this weekend, it participates in the Mars-Venus game again, and indicates that we become more courageous and willing to experiment. This looks like a healing success.
Everyday Life / Profession: Venus has long drawn attention to an affliction so that everyone now knows which affliction is meant. As a Pisces you are very personally affected because Venus is in your sign. Seen this way, it is a positive interpretation, for once, when Venus reaches the next sign of Aries on Friday. As a symbol, because Venus is fundamentally neither aggressive or angry, it is time to reconcile with the problem it has drawn attention to. Venus has a healing effect through its harmonizing energy. So when you say goodbye to Venus, you should do it with gratitude. Venus is much less at home in the sign of Aries than in Pisces, so going forward it has to make a little effort in order to achieve its goals. For you, this translates to: You are allowed to want something and you are allowed to show that you want it. You do not have to fit in, and you are allowed to “say no” if you do not like something. This issue already came up in February and March. Partnership / Love: The Taurus New Moon and the aspect between Mercury and Uranus, which is in effect as of now until the middle of May, announce that you should be much clearer in your manner of expression. In the process, you may surprise or unsettle your counterpart. Do not be too nice! Demonstrate that you can follow along and think for yourself. You have a territory to defend. No one is allowed to come too close to you without permission.
