Spring­time changes our land­scape as bur­geon­ing roots shift the dirt and rain­fall erodes the ground here, de­posits seeds there. With this week’s as­pects, in­ter­est­ing new con­nec­tions bud quickly, pos­i­tive pub­lic­ity blos­soms eas­ily, and re­sources gather when we have a clear plan and get on a roll.

We may not al­ways like the new ter­rain: Neigh­bor­ing ex­pan­sion can crowd us out. Busi­nesses and peo­ple will begin to re­lo­cate re­sources, prun­ing po­si­tions or re­la­tion­ships that may re­main wor­thy but aren’t part of new growth. We dis­like be­ing up­rooted, but new sit­u­a­tions just might of­fer more sun­shine and fer­tile ground.

The week­end be­gins un­der a determined Capricorn moon, which can en­cour­age ex­cite­ment when we dig into work and frus­tra­tion when un­usual cir­cum­stances get in the way of progress. Emo­tional Venus en­ters ver­sa­tile Gemini this week­end, bring­ing a light­hearted qual­ity to help us adapt.

Early next week, just be­fore tax time, Mer­cury en­ters earthy Taurus and Venus op­poses prag­matic Saturn, help­ing us fo­cus on our du­ties. Re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and bud­gets may get in the way of plea­sure, but we have sup­port for what must be done — whether that’s updating our re­sume or fin­ish­ing an im­por­tant project.

Fri­day, April 10: This po­ten­tially un­friendly day can be pro­duc­tive if we stay away from con­flict as the in­dus­tri­ous Capricorn moon trines en­er­giz­ing Mars. Mo­men­tum builds: Let’s make sure it’s in a good di­rec­tion. Peo­ple need en­cour­age­ment to let go of work tonight. Satur­day, April 11: Af­ter haunt­ing dreams this morn­ing, we can get caught up in our plans and miss an op­por­tu­nity to connect. Ev­ery fam­ily mem­ber wants to head off in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion. Dis­agree­ments sprout eas­ily if we lose our hu­mor or get stiff-necked. New strands weave into the con­ver­sa­tion as Venus en­ters Gemini this af­ter­noon, leav­en­ing an oth­er­wise heavy day. Sun­day, April 12: Mi­nor com­mu­ni­ca­tion glitches aren’t per­sonal this morn­ing as the moon squares cere­bral Mer­cury — have faith that the cof­fee will kick in. We’re pos­i­tively gre­gar­i­ous around noon, as the moon en­ters Aquarius and trines Venus. Play with your words, and don’t un­der­es­ti­mate the heal­ing power of friend­li­ness. Mon­day, April 13: Cranky edges in­crease our clum­si­ness this morn­ing as the moon squares Mars, but the mood lev­els out later. Avoid in­tro­spec­tion; it’s a great day to get the word out. The af­ter­noon may be aim­lessly ac­tive — en­joy the jour­ney and don’t worry about the goal. Tues­day, April 14: The moon en­ters re­cep­tive Pisces and height­ens our sen­si­tiv­i­ties, just as Mer­cury en­ters grounded Taurus and cen­ters us. We fo­cus best in short bursts — taxes and tasks can cramp our style. Our nerves res­onate and can test re­la­tion­ships as the moon, Venus, and Saturn square off in high-strung mu­ta­ble signs later on. Prac­tice pa­tience. Wed­nes­day, April 15: Ide­ally, taxes are al­ready done and sent in. We are best suited for se­ri­ous work, as the moon con­juncts Nep­tune in Pisces. Have a good cry, then take an in­ven­tive ap­proach. Our psy­chic bound­aries are per­me­able — if strange feel­ings arise, look around for their source. Tonight, if an old pain re­turns, find a way to heal it. Thurs­day, April 16: We may feel out of sync this morn­ing, so let ev­ery­one bump along to their own rhythm. Be re­spect­ful of bound­aries; good re­la­tion­ship habits help when we’re feel­ing this over­whelmed. The en­ergy shifts mid­day — we’ll be more impatient as the moon en­ters ac­ti­vated Aries. As we switch into higher gear we may dis­agree about pri­or­i­ties.
