IF WE FEEL CREATIVELY OR EMOTIONALLY RESTLESS this weekend, we can get rid of this discontent by moving f lower beds or furniture, or altering our relationships or our opinions as artistic Venus conjuncts change-inducing Uranus under a moody Scorpio moon. That moon is good for reorganizing, spring cleaning, overhauling our wardrobe, or obsessing about our art supplies and painting all day. It pays to choose our obsession so one doesn’t just come out and grab us.
This Scorpio moon is also good for digging up clues and unearthing uncomfortable information, so look for revelations of hidden assets or old peccadilloes that could change our personal or political landscape. It can really tick us off if we perceive an intention to hide or deceive, with Mars now retrograde in outspoken Sagittarius.
Sunday through Tuesday, the moon joins Mars in Sagittarius and can help broadcast that hidden information. We may tend to be wildly opinionated and ready to share our thoughts. But we can also use this investigatory energy in a more personal way, to be unusually honest with ourselves over the weekend and to share that honesty with one another early in the week.
Those who have been unhappy for a time could feel ready to walk away, but may just need to walk around the block and make sure they’re not just reacting against, but moving toward, something they actually want.
We need to take this extra moment to think things through before we make a drastic response. Mercury turns retrograde on Thursday, and any radical decision we make will need to be revisited when Mercury turns direct at the end of May. Already we can feel misunderstandings accruing, machinery beginning to develop glitches, and other symptoms of this retrograde.
Build extra room into the schedule Wednesday and Thursday as a moon in durable Capricorn lends us competence but can leave us grim, with lots to do, not enough time to do it, and extra complications thrown in. Strange events can bring up all the problems we’ve yet to solve, but can also remind us of the power of human kindness.
FRIDAY, APRIL 22: Heaviness or a sullen recalcitrance can impede us this morning unless we hear it out, and then let it go. Rich imaginative possibilities and interpersonal curiosity can make life interesting.
SATURDAY, APRIL 23: It’s a day to follow our inner callings. We really won’t feel like tiptoeing around other people’s delicate psyches because we need to trod boldly around our own.
SUNDAY, APRIL 24. A fresh honesty can help awkward communications. Hold on to the image that everyone’s needs can be met. It helps to revel in connections with the natural world.
MONDAY, APRIL 25: We may not want to work, find ourselves working at cross purposes, or not quite understanding what’s needed, unless we save time and confirm priorities first. De-stress tonight.
TUESDAY, APRIL 26: One thread aids our serious work, another brings in imagination laced with romantic illusion. Daydreams and assumptions can either open us up or get in the way. We have to actively look for what’s real. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27: People become easily irritated unless they see a clear path forward. We can suddenly be hard on ourselves or others for inefficiency and make cranky commentary. But as Mercury appears stationary, many things grind to a halt. THURSDAY, APRIL 28: We have ambitious hopes and yet may find our intentions thwarted. Socializing can help; if we can’t work, we can bond over the problem. Talk about what’s going on.
