Your Weekly Horoscope: Good News and Good Vibes
April 08 – April 14, 2019
This week will be much slower than what we’ve experienced over the past month. For most of the week, you can expect both harmonious gatherings and an accent on goal-accomplishment. Plus, all that leads up to a little bit of luck this weekend!
On Tuesday, Venus (planet of love) in the sign of Pisces merges with dreamy Neptune (planet of fantasy), which could inspire people to see the best in everyone. However, she also moves to align with Saturn (planet of responsibility) on Friday; this might make us become more aware of other people’s flaws and less willing to take them on trust.
By Wednesday, more intense energies could start to appear as the sun in Aries angles toward Saturn and Pluto on Saturday. (Jupiter, planet of fortune, also turns retrograde on this day, meaning we’ll be forced to make our own luck for a while.)
Since Pluto and Saturn are just three degrees apart, you can guess there’ll be an intense focus mid-week on issues associated with responsibilities, authority, career goals, and plans. To make your week ultra-smooth, try embracing those things that need to get done, instead of resisting.

Finally, a lovely alignment between the sun and Jupiter on Sunday could bring something beneficial for everyone.
Here’s how the planets will affect your sign this week.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Why is it that when things are at their most urgent, you simply can’t get them done? It’s possible to blame this on Saturn and Pluto’s aspect this week. But it’ll be in your best interest to push through them—things aren’t going to get easier! That is, until Sunday when you might meet a beneficial opportunity.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
On Tuesday, the love vibes will be in the air which could bring a date with a loved one or a long-time crush. (Get it, Taurus.) In the days ahead, though, you’ll get a little more self-reflective as you start to see certain habits that have been holding you back. (We can help if you need some help from the stars.) Finally, a bigger revelation should hit you on Sunday which could open doors to new possibilities.
Gemini (May 21 – June 30)
This week Gemini, you might feel a desire to help out a charity or something of that ilk. This clashes a bit though with some awkward social situations where people might not understand your intentions. Don’t feel obligated to share if you’re not ready. As Jupiter turns backward, you’ll start to analyze a current relationship.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
If you’re dreaming of travel, book the trip so you have something to look forward to. But this week Cancer, you’ll be asked to get serious about responsibilities. With Saturn and Pluto in your relating sector, it may look like someone is preventing you from progress—a discussion might be best here. Finally, after a week of hard work, get ready for some good news this weekend.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Self-expression will be your jam from this week until August with Jupiter in retrograde. A detox of all the things that don’t bring a smile to your face might be advisable. This week will keep you busy, Leo. But it will also bring an issue to a head that needs resolving. The weekend gives you a chance for a quick getaway trip—take it!
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos sometimes need a little help to let loose. You won’t have that problem on Tuesday, as planet energies stir dreamy excitement about a relationship. In terms of responsibilities, you aren’t taking care of them as you should. But events over the coming days should help you see how this is blocking you.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Romance heads your way on Tuesday as a relationship gets more serious. This week may also bring up some issues at home in terms of balancing your lifestyle and your family. Keep the conversation going, Libra. Sunday will be a great day for you to get out and let go of any pressure you feel.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Tuesday sizzles for you Scorpio, as love aligns with your leisure zone. Make some memories! This week should bring some problems with overthinking. If this happens, exercise might help. Lastly, take yourself out for a shopping spree on Sunday—you’ll deserve it after this week.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Mars is traveling through Gemini in your partnership zone, which could stir up all sorts of conversations this week. Jupiter turns retrograde in your sign of Sagittarius on Wednesday which means plenty of opportunity to come until August 11. If you’ve been eyeing a big-ticket item, Sunday might be the best day to buy.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, don’t be afraid to change your habits up this week as Mars travels through your lifestyle zone. This week might also bring a clash with family members if you’re having a hard time letting go of a certain situation. Jupiter’s retrograde will happen in your spiritual zone, which could start an investigation of self.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
As much as Aquarians like to charge forward with brilliant plans, you might be blocking progress without realizing it. But this week, Saturn and Pluto’s aspect might bring insight into why this is happening. Jupiter will be turning retrograde in your social section—a promising friendship or even a romance could develop through August. Start it off by going to a fun event this weekend!

Venus and Neptune tie on Tuesday, making it a perfect day for a romantic night out. You may feel a little behind in terms of money this week—just try to live within your means. Things will bounce back—Jupiter turns backward in your goals section this week, which should start to bring more opportunities and success to you by August.
