Horoscopes April 13th – April 21st.
The main event this week is the direct movement of Mars! Mars has been in retrograde (Rx) motion since the beginning of this year, and the effects have made life completely sluggish for us all. A retrograde planet gives the illusion of moving backwards around the Sun, and whenever this happens, life seems to slow down and we experience much in the way of blocks, delays, inactivity, misunderstandings and misinformation; it’s not a fun time! Thankfully, Mars will begin to move forward again today, Friday – April 13th. Here’s the low down on what this means for your sign:
Aries: Of all the signs in the Zodiac, yours has probably had the toughest time dealing with warrior planet Mars moving backwards in the sky. Mars is your ruler in Astrology, and action oriented. But when this planet is retrograde, it becomes almost impossible for you to implement anything new. All this soon ends; Mars stations forward today and it’ll be all systems go by next week, especially with regards to any health and fitness routines you’ve been trying to get off the ground.
Taurus: For certain Taurus, these past few weeks have seen you off your game. You are usually quite the charmer, pulling in all sorts of admirers. But Mars’ backward motion above may have put a damper on your plans for romance, and has made you work harder at being more creative in all your relationships. The fog should clear up for good in the coming week! You’ll be back to your playful self, and this time with the added confidence to attain whatever or whoever it is you want!
Gemini: Issues related to home and family may have been somewhat draining for you over the past few weeks, and the planet Mars is totally to blame. The retrograde activity above has had you seriously reconsidering a few family matters, and I’m happy to say that much will be resolved, and soon. Look toward a marked shift this coming week, when clarity prevails in any domestic misunderstanding. You’ll even be able to actually enjoy any time spent with loved ones.
Cancer: I’m sure you’ve just about had it with having to repeat yourself and revisit conversations from the past. But Mars’ retrograde activity has forced you to retrace a lot of steps in your communication, especially with regards to your manner of speech. Cancers have been more aggressive with getting their points across lately, and it’s been noticeable! Now that you know to tone down your tone, you will be better able to speak with clarity avoiding all sorts of misunderstandings.
Leo: Your money has been funny over these past few months, Leo. If you’re self employed, your income has been slowly generating (if at all). If you are a part of a business, you’ve probably been looking for ways to innovate and bring in more revenue. You may have even been in talks or negotiations regarding payments and monies owed. Well by next week, much of this will be resolved. You’ll be living large again (or at least within reason) with a steady cash inflow.
Virgo: Mars has been toying with your self esteem, Virgo. Think back to around the end of last year, and you’ll recall the abundance of energy you had at your disposal. Nowadays, however, it seems you’ve been feeling less sure of yourself due to Mars’ retrograde, and lacking in confidence. By next week, feelings of uncertainty will end. You will be recharged and ready to tackle anything and anyone that gets in your way.
