Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:
In all your practical endeavors this week, discussions, brainstorming, writing down what needs to be done, and making lists will help take ideas from the realm of thoughts down to earth where they can make a real difference.
The Sun, Venus and Uranus are in Aries this week. It is the early signs of the zodiac that have the most activity now. Aries is the sign of newness, of birth, of coming alive in the world and being recognized as an individual. The New Moon last week set us up for new beginnings which will continue to grow this week. If you feel like you’re behind, no worries, you can always start from where you’re at. The moment that counts the most is always now.
Mercury and Neptune are in harmony on Tuesday. Visualization about what you want to create and manifest in the world is a great place to start. There can be a magical quality to this day. This would be a great time to start a vision board of the things you want to achieve and experience in life. In particular, with Mercury in Taurus, the possessions and material objects that you would like to acquire are in focus. The best items are those that are practical and useful so they can help you do meaningful work. Think, “What do I need so I can best do ____?”
Venus and Mars are in harmony on Tuesday as well. Mars is at a standstill this week as he stations retrograde at the end of the week in Sagittarius. This retrograde cycle of Mars will last for many months. Mars will station direct in Scorpio later in June.
The connection between Venus and Mars now has a lot to do with self-esteem and self-worth. The ego plays a big role in how we identify with ourselves and the world. As Mars retrogrades in the sign of possibilities, it’s a great time to strategize what you want to do for your life. What are your real aspirations that you have for yourself? Is where you are living in the world the right place for you to live to your fullest, with vitality and energy? Are you living your life according to your own self directed determination? Do you believe you can live up to your potential?
The next few months will be a time of discovering what your motivations are. With Venus in harmony with Mars at the beginning of his retrograde cycle, this is a good sign. Self-love and self-respect are highlights to self discovery. The need for honoring who you are and having personal freedom and empowerment will be significant in molding your actions and motivations.
Mercury and Jupiter are in harmony on Thursday. Brilliant insights filled with hope can arise this week. The harmony between these two in earth signs can bring a touch of luck and smarts that open you up to new possibilities. New ideas (the bigger, the better) about organizing your life are likely to show up giving you a sense of having a firmer ground to stand on so you can think smart without distractions.
Thursday would be a great day to jump right in and start working on a plan for your life. Write down all the details, all the wants and wishes, as the foundation to formulating a smart plan. This can be for work and business, or for your health and lifestyle. Whatever area you know for sure needs more attention and work, start writing down your ideas. This would be a great time to buy a new book, or start using a new productivity app that you know will be practical and useful to get you on track.
Mercury and Pluto are in harmony on Sunday. This is great for working together in business and career matters. When the foundations are strong and well thought out and organized, achievement is possible.
This also signifies an awareness of the importance of each role in any organization working in harmony together to accomplish goals. An understanding of what needs to be done to create a good work environment for all who are involved in a project is highlighted now.
In order for any company, or relationship to work, there needs to be agreement and teamwork. If you are butting heads with your boss or your partner, don’t expect to get anywhere good. It is when you are working together, not against each other, that real accomplishment can take root.
Discussions on what needs to be done and how to build financial stability are recommended in business partnerships.
Grassroots level thinking also has the power to change things at the top. Intelligent dialogue is essential.
Mars stations retrograde on Sunday, April 17, 2016 at 8:14 am EDT. As the energy shifts it is likely palpable for most. The actions, reactions and motivations shift priority. This can lead to reflection on what you’ve been doing with your life, what you’ve been going for, and what hasn’t been working so well. It’s a time to look at your priorities, aspirations and wishes you have for your life.
If you have an inactive lifestyle for whatever reason you may find that there is a bit more fatigue than usual that shows up, leading to a bit of a slowdown. Finding inner reserves of energy may require more effort or caffeine. Mars retrograde is also likely to create a change in what motivates you to take action. Mars will be retrograde in Sagittarius until the end of May, and will enter back intoScorpio at that time. For now, the priority is on developing inner strength, willpower and determination guided by your hopes and wishes for your life.
If you’ve been a procrastinator and not been able to create the life you wish for yourself, this is a great time to learn more about what motivates you and what the underlying reasons for your hesitations are. Being able to more clearly identify what you hope for in life and what’s holding you back from going full steam ahead in making it a reality, will help lead you to purge yourself of your fears. The purging of doubts and underlying fears will be highlighted during Mars retrograde, particularly in June this year.
