Your Weekly Horoscope: A Timely Surprise Comes Your Way
April 22 – April 28, 2019
Uh oh. There’s a special alignment in the stars this week that’ll bring a whole bunch of fortuitous and totally weird events. The sun moved into slow, predictable Taurus two days ago—but as it lingers dangerously close to Uranus (planet of change) until midweek, unexpected events could be a key feature over the next seven days.
This lively aspect might bring about refreshing encounters, small amounts of money out of the blue, or unforeseen opportunities. While these surprising moments may seem small at first, but they could blossom into something bigger over the coming weeks and months.
On Tuesday, Venus (planet of pleasure) aligns in lively Aries with Chiron (planet of spiritual healing), which could encourage feelings of vulnerability when it comes to starting something new. This can be an opportunity to reflect on why you’re feeling the way you do. Insights can encourage seeking the right kind of help and advice.
On Wednesday, Pluto (planet of transformation) turns retrograde in the sign of Capricorn, and remains so until October 3. This encourages looking within to those buried feelings that may be a cause of hidden suffering. Over the coming months, releasing these can offer a new lease on life.
Finally, a muddled Mars-Neptune transit this weekend—bringing together the planets of action and illusion—suggests something may not be as it seems.
Here’s how the planets will affect your sign this week.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Active Mercury and compassionate Venus are in your spiritual sector this week, which may make you feel ready to contribute more to humanity. A surprise opportunity to participate at a charity event might be the perfect way to start. Pluto’s retrograde falls in your travel section, which may ask you to reconsider your beliefs. Keep it slow this weekend.
Gemini (May 21 – June 30)
Your motivation to be social is off the charts this week, Gemini—this energy will stay with you for the next coming weeks as well. Don’t get too comfortable, though, because it looks like something unexpected might alter your path—though it’ll be a good thing in the long run. As Pluto’s retrograde brings attention to some intense feelings regarding emotional baggage, don’t be too hasty to process them. Lastly, watch out for a mixed message this weekend.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Don’t let the Venus-Chiron aspect allow you to feel self-doubt, Cancer; after all your hard work, there isn’t a soul who can’t tell that you know what you’re doing. Get ready for a surprise invite from someone seemingly out of the blue. And this weekend, when you’re offered a deal that seems too good to be true… it likely is—be aware of this.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
If you have a trip planned this week, expect things to go well as active Mercury and sociable Venus meet in your travel sector. (And hey, if things aren’t going well with bae, taking a trip together might be the answer.) This weekend, you might get the feeling that someone isn’t being honest. Go ahead and confront the issue, Leo—but be nice.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
With an unpredictable vacation invite heading your way this week, it’s best to say “yes”—even if you’re not exactly up for it. The reason for this being that it’s time to bring some creativity back into your life as Pluto turns retrograde. It also might be the perfect way to make up with a partner as it looks like you may encounter a rough patch at the beginning of the week. Keep strong, Virgo.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Surprise, Libra: Someone you haven’t seen in a while might randomly appear this week which could bring up some emotions you haven’t felt in a minute. The healing this encounter brings could be revolutionary for you though. Get ready for family tree and values to become the forefront of your focus once Pluto turns retrograde.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Your surprise this week, Scorpio, is that someone you thought you knew well could pull something completely different on you. Learning new things about people who are closest to you will be the game here. And with Uranus in your relationship sector, this week could also urge you to start a conversation that could open new doors.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You may have an encounter with someone who helps you work through any current relationship issues that have been going on. With your chart focusing on your lifestyle realm, the next four weeks will be about breaking bad habits and improving your life in general. Lastly, this weekend could show a “trustworthy” person’s true colors. Don’t be too quick to trust, Sagittarius.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
The sun meets Uranus at the beginning of the week which may start to make you feel like you need to switch up your regular routine. On Tuesday, you’ll see an opportunity to make amends with a family member and put any wounds to rest. Be upfront Capricorn, and you won’t regret starting the conversation.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Early this week, you might have an unexpected visitor approach you which could turn out to be a joyful meeting. As Mars channels your romance sector, you’ll be much more focused on your special someone than normal. Finally, as an independent Aquarius, it can be hard to ask for help. But Pluto’s retrograde in your spiritual zone will slowly start to make you see that you need it.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Some new information coming your way this week could help you get to where you want to go a little faster. Make sure you’re being vigilant about spending money though, Pisces, as Venus drifts around your shopping zone. Pluto is turning retrograde in your social sector, which makes you reconsider staying close with a person who is a bit too controlling. Finally, be clear about what you want this weekend—it’ll be the best way to get what you want.
