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.
