The Weekly Horoscope

Week from 16 to 22 Apr 2018

General Tendencies
Everyday Life / Profession:

Whatever we begin anew with the current Aries New Moon (with Uranus) and with Aries Mercury which has just returned to direct motion, is to have a lasting effect, because Saturn in Capricorn is standing still, turning retrograde on April 18 and not turning direct again until the autumn. Uranus allows us to approach things differently and in an unfamiliar way. Mars in Capricorn is connected with Lilith, who for her part is also in favor of courageously questioning rules and habits. Venus in Taurus is opposite Jupiter in Scorpio and in a friendly trine to Pluto; thus Venus must be adaptable and not hold on to her preferences, her advantages or her possessions. Happiness seems to consist of letting go and sharing. Those who are able to make other people happy are happy themselves. Chiron changes into Aries at the end of the week and shows the dangers of too much spontaneity, too much fighting and selfishness.

Partnership / Love:

The Aries New Moon quickly turns into a Taurus Moon, so that the theme of renewal is brought to Venus and influences our relationships. Both partners must be capable of change if they want to reach a common level. The constellations encourage a brave view of the future, even if this view is accompanied by fear of loss. Courage is overcoming fear.

Everyday Life / Profession:

This week begins with the Aries New Moon and its continuation in the sign of Taurus, where it comes straight down to business. A project needs to be tackled, especially if it is something that you have been contemplating for a long time. Mercury has turned direct and knows what to do. Nothing is done in haste, but with a sense of necessity and feasibility. The very different signs of Aries and Capricorn are ready to cooperate after hard wrestling. Mercury has adjusted to the slower pace of Capricorn and thus gains time for thorough planning. Mars approaches Lilith and Pluto, who demand that older regulations be revised. They are becoming more and more courageous to question the given, to think in new ways and to act differently.

Partnership / Love:

The Aries New Moon made you wake up. You have been thinking for a long time and have come to a conclusion. You want to get more out of life and love again. Venus in Taurus indicates the desire for physical closeness, and when you get it, you are perfectly happy and come into a generous mood. Then you want your partner to get what they want. In the end, you both feel much more deeply connected again.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Now Venus in Taurus has strong ties with Jupiter and Pluto. You are therefore challenged to think outside the box, to deal with foreign demands or world views and to question your own position. Your ideas will be enriched and expanded if you let your encounters make an impression on you. The stronger you feel your own strength, the easier it is to deal with the unknown and perhaps even the uncanny. The Moon quickly changes into Taurus, the Sun follows it on Friday, when the Moon is already in the sign of Gemini. This indicates that you are becoming aware of your strength, and then you are actually able to deal with the challenges in a confident manner based on your strength.

Partnership / Love:

Your love life benefits from Venus, Moon (Mon-Wed) and Sun (from Friday) in the sign of the Taurus. You feel yourself more, your strength, your body, your passion. You will find a strong response from your partner and can have very intense and passionate experiences. It takes a little courage to do this, you have to come out of your shell and you cannot expect any guarantees. Be open to everything that is enticing and mysterious.

Everyday Life / Profession:

As soon as the Aries New Moon has formed, the Moon is already in Taurus and becomes well connected to the planets in Capricorn. In this way, two parties, which previously acted very vehemently against each other, find a common basis. If you cannot find an opponent in your life, he or she will probably be inside of you. This is actually much better because it is true. Whenever we feel unable to deal with our inner adversary and therefore do not want to see them, they will come from the outside.... The New Moon energy and Mercury, back in direct motion, show that we have learned and doubted enough for the time being and that we may well have been desperate. From now on things are moving forward again, goals are being implemented quickly, but not hastily and unprepared. The active Aries energy needs Saturn / Capricorn as a corrective and a landmark. Conversely, the stabilizing Capricorn energy needs Aries as an engine to avoid getting stuck.

Partnership / Love:

Venus is called (back) to life by Jupiter and Pluto. You have probably noticed it and can link it to an experience. There is now a desire for more physical contact and intense experiences, and the New Moon wants to promote it and gives you the necessary confidence. Take your longing seriously and follow it carefully. Mars is approaching Lilith and Pluto and will want to do something enormous.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Your projects are gradually getting underway. The Aries New Moon has pushed everything, Mercury is back in the "right" direction, Mars has full Capricorn power and wants to see results. Mars is now also becoming particularly courageous because rules, structures and obstacles (Capricorn) are being questioned. Some rules can be changed, some obstacles removed. The Sun changes into Taurus on Friday: Projects become more and more real, you get support from your colleagues or friends. At the weekend the Moon is in Cancer. Saturn, Mars, Lilith and Pluto face it in Capricorn. How does that feel? Do you feel small and insignificant again or do you realize that you have grown up and are taken seriously? Whenever the Moon is in Cancer, childhood themes emerge and you feel like you are taking an exam. Right now, this always happens on the weekend.

Partnership / Love:

Venus with Jupiter and Pluto indicates that you want to get your money's worth. Together with the Aries New Moon, your love life will get a new dynamic. Mars leaves the limits or the bad conscience (Saturn) behind and dares to approach Lilith and Pluto who want to teach him the secrets of eroticism. Are you ready for it? This is an offer from life itself; you do not have to accept it if it goes too far for you. The decision is entirely yours.

Everyday Life / Profession:

The rejuvenating energy of the New Moon wants to manifest and show itself (Moon in Taurus, planets in Capricorn, element Earth). You also want to show yourself in a new way, perhaps with new convictions, but certainly in your very own special way that nobody needs to like. You owe this freedom to Uranus, who left his individualistic stamp on the New Moon. You could almost call it fool's license, but you will probably not get out of line quite so much. You go just about as far as you can if you do not want to ruin your reputation or your career. Venus in Taurus keeps an eye on what you have to lose. And if by the end of the week it turns out that you have nothing at all to lose, you will go one step further next week and break the mold.

Partnership / Love:

This New Moon is a very special one, because it has an enormous rejuvenating power. Take a little time to think about your relationship situation and review the weekend's experiences. The experience is very dense, very intense. You need this intensity to feel what is good and right, and in order to know where your place is and which place your partner can take next to you.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Pluto in Capricorn holds on to old structures until they collapse. Lilith takes on Pluto and demands truthfulness. Mars has a stimulating effect. Anything that is not real or that no longer fits must be removed. The Aries New Moon, close to Uranus, can be the moment of collapse - right now! Mercury moves forward again and thus also indicates a turning point. You have had enough doubt, bickering, and hesitation. You want to see action. Do you feel addressed? Is there something that you have thought about long enough and want to tackle? Mars is moving into favorable connections with Jupiter and Pluto who have big plans. With the Aries New Moon and Mars it is easy to take the first step. This is probably overdue.

Partnership / Love:

Love is a source of energy. You can now experience this first-hand. The more you get involved with love, the more you will be touched. What would you like to do with this tremendous energy? There are all sorts of crazy things coming to mind, but you want to do the only right thing, the real and true thing. Actually, the crossing of new frontiers is called for. Are you ready to jump into the unknown?

Everyday Life / Profession:

If the pressure is high enough, even Libra manages to jump into the unknown. And if you do not succeed, you are confronted with the fact that another person makes the leap, simply leaves or drops out of a project. The "jump" (Uranus) can also consist of shifting up a gear or - as with a rocket - igniting the next stage. In such an event, you do not just want to be a spectator, but you want to have a say and be a part of the action. Maybe you did not realize how much you wanted this. As soon as there is a risk of another person enjoying the pleasure while you are missing out, you become active. You may find it difficult, but as mentioned before, if the pressure is high enough, you can take the leap. It would be absolutely fine if you waited until next Monday to actually do it.

Partnership / Love:

You have spent enough time poking around in the past and analyzing it. You and your partner have finally come close to each other again, and that gives you the courage to say or do something important and to send out a signal. You can now be extraordinarily courageous, in a way that your partner is not used to. You open a door and bring momentum into a situation where you have reached your limits.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Would you like to do something completely different than before? The constellations invite you to ignore previous ideas, behaviors and rules. Sometimes we have to try an experiment to get new results. The experiment was prepared by retrograde Mercury and now gets power from the New Moon. Mars in Capricorn has been cautious and reserved for long enough and now allies with Lilith and Pluto. Your thoughts and actions must go beyond the present framework. Daring thoughts generate new vitality, new joy of life. You need the feeling of being able to move and change something, even if only through words. Your words become powerful (New Moon and Mercury in Aries).

Partnership / Love:

Uranus approaches the sign of Taurus and announces an important change in your relationship life. This week you will learn what changes are involved and how to shape them. You are not a victim of the situation but actively involved. Jupiter in Scorpio trains your perception and with each new insight you become more confident and self-determined in interpersonal relationships. This is now very noticeable.

Everyday Life / Profession:

The Aries New Moon has driving power and rejuvenating energy, and Uranus also gives it a radical quality that rubs off on Mars in Capricorn. Mars, for his part, is heading towards Lilith and Pluto, who are also radical. This mood is embedded in the long-term interaction between Jupiter and Pluto, who work calmly behind the scenes to achieve a fundamental social change. You can see this in a negative way ("big brother is watching you"), but there are also positive correspondences ("mother nature is powerful"). You can help to decide what the change should look like. You can do it with your consciousness, your mentality, your commitment and very strongly also with your consumer behavior. Jupiter and Pluto are in Scorpio and Capricorn and are pushing for a reduction to the essential. Happiness (Jupiter) is created by conscious sacrifice, by deliberately letting go of what is superfluous and unimportant.

Partnership / Love:

Venus and Mars have found a common ground and are still in the same element (Earth) this week. Now, consistent steps are taken that require special courage. We act against standards and expectations. When partners act in concert, it welds them together. In some cases, long-term happiness will consist in the fact that both partners are now pursuing their own paths independently from each other.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Saturn is now stationary, but will turn retrograde on Wednesday and will not change direction again until September, seen from Earth. In this way, your position and fortitude will be deeply anchored. You are just becoming a real Capricorn: straightforward, consistent, hard on yourself. However, if you have always been like this, the current constellations will ensure that the hardness will soften where it is no longer needed and only disturbs. Saturn wants to penetrate the essence of the sign of Capricorn, and Mars also does so when he now meets Lilith and Pluto, who initiate him into deeper truths. Despite all its harshness, Capricorn is a feminine sign and committed to wisdom. Pluto and Jupiter in the feminine signs of Capricorn and Scorpio fall back on the primal knowledge within our bodies. Everything has been there for a long time, we just have to learn to see it and take it seriously.

Partnership / Love:

If you have failed to be consistent before, you will now be almost automatically so. The New Moon has radicalized us all and wants us to see a future. Where you cannot see a future, you should not invest any more energy. Where you see a bright future, you will be happy to become active and wonder at your sudden courage. Something very important is happening right now.

Everyday Life / Profession:

The constellations express activities of change and liberation. If something no longer fits, it suddenly becomes quite easy to get rid of. Mercury moves forward again, the gaze turns back to the future. You can do much better on the second try, because you know a lot more. The Aries New Moon changes to Taurus (element Earth), where facts are created. The Sun is moving into Taurus at the end of the week, which means that there is a strong emphasis on the element of Earth this week. So much Earth has the tendency to bring us back down to earth and even deeper. This is hard to endure for the sensitive Cancer Moon this weekend. By then, Mars will have moved very, very close to Lilith and Pluto. Everything we do has an extremely powerful effect, goes under the skin, even if we make an effort to be very careful.

Partnership / Love:

The Aries New Moon can make you feel like master of the situation again. At least you want it very much and act accordingly. But will you get closer to happiness or, on the contrary, move further away from it? Do you sometimes bring unnecessary anxiety into your love life? Where does this urge come from? Do you like to be unconnected? Homeless? This is sometimes ascribed to Aquarius. But is it really true?

Everyday Life / Profession:

The Aries New Moon wants to get you out of speechlessness and invisibility. Mercury moves forward again, has been thinking for a long time. You now know what to say or express, and you will find various ways to draw attention to yourself: Facial expression, gestures, colors, shapes and moreover the modern communication channels. Basically, you are an allrounder and it is time for people to see and hear this. Maybe they are "only" first experiments, but there will certainly be others. On the weekend you feel all kinds of fears. These are part of leaving your comfort zone. Without this step nothing will happen. It is possible that you crawl away on Saturday and take a break from broadcasting. If you start feeling a bit lonely then, you will feel that you can soon start again. Follow your feelings! This includes breaks.

Partnership / Love:

Everything your partner does is very meaningful in your eyes. Are you in a wait-and-see attitude and observe what your partner is doing and not doing? Maybe you should become more active yourself. In any case, the New Moon makes you want to do so. Take up such impulses and play with your possibilities. Your own actions are just as important as those of your partner. You may want to do it differently. That is fine, because it must be right for you.
