Weekly Horoscope: April 13 – April 19, 2020
It’s a major week.
The sun in Aries forges an angle with Pluto (planet of transformation) on Tuesday, which could coincide with a need for change and perhaps a decision. On the same day, a quarter moon in Capricorn calls to tie up loose ends so that a project can reach a successful conclusion. If there are any adjustments to be made, now is the time to make them.
Midweek sees the sun linking to Jupiter (planet of abundance), which can bring confidence and faith in an idea and inspire a bold move.
Mercury (planet of communication) continues its journey through Aries and aligns with Venus (planet of love) in Gemini on Friday, which can make for a very sociable and convivial time. It also connects with Mars (planet of aggression) the following day, fostering enjoyment of a key event and meeting some fascinating people.
Finally, the sun moves into grounded Taurus on Sunday for a four-week stay, bringing out people’s sensual and earthy side.

A lot is happening in your sign this week, so you’ll feel some heavy energy. With the sun connecting with Jupiter, your self-confidence is skyrocketing mid-week. Over the weekend, you’ll feel a bit more inclined to connect with others. Is it time for a FaceTime happy hour?
You’re coming to a spiritual close as the sun nears its trip through the last house of the zodiac wheel before entering your sign. You might be inspired this week to go deeper into your subconscious. Make sure you’re listening to your intuition regarding career goals—you’ll receive some great messages!
Thanks to aspects at the beginning of the week, a friendship may need some attention. Is it time to forgive and forget? That friendship could be reconciled over the weekend, as Venus in your sign gives you some extra persuasion.
Oh, Cancer, your goals and ambitions are off the chart this week. Mercury moves into this zone and makes aspects to Mars and Venus over the weekend. If you’ve been thinking about a major career move, here’s your chance to go after it!
The moon aligning with Pluto at the beginning of the week asks you to listen to your heart and pull away from work. You’ve been working too hard and too long, Leo. Over the weekend, it might be a good time to hang out with your partner.
The sun-moon connection, angling to Pluto, on Tuesday could highlight a need to express your feelings to someone—right now. But it might heed you to wait a little longer, Virgo. With the sun moving into a more intense zone in your chart this week, other issues are bound to crop up and take your attention away from this.
Your relationship is in full focus this week, Libra. Pluto, though, is coming into your home zone and bringing surprises with it. You might need to put most attention onto your family this week. Don’t worry about bae; you’ll have plenty of time to reconnect over the weekend.
The sun-Pluto angle on Tuesday could bring a disagreement at work. It’ll take some talking it out, but there is a way to solve this issue. As positive transits fill your week, you should feel much more laid back from Wednesday onward. The sun moves into your relationship zone over the weekend. It’s high time you get a little loving in. Right, Scorpio?
This week is about saving up the money you’ve earned. We all know you want to kick back and relax, Sagittarius. But there are times when you need to be serious and think about the future. This week is one of those times!
Jupiter in your sign is connecting to Pluto, so there are some challenges coming your way this week—even though the start of the week will see you finishing up a project. The weekend puts some lighthearted energy into your life, though—something you seriously need.
Your spiritual zone is getting magnified, thanks to the Jupiter-Pluto tie happening here. But ultimately, this week is a social one for you, as Mercury aligns with Venus and Mars. The sun moves into your home zone on Sunday… self-care and nurturing are upon you, Aquarius.
You may feel the need to spend this week, Pisces. Just a heads up! While Mercury’s aspects on Friday and Saturday see money as something necessary for fun, don’t bring this too far into the weekend. Once you’ve had your family time, try to save up for the rest of the week.
