Reading time: just 2 minutes that will make your week easier.
04-06-2020 to 04-12-2020
Buckle up, Aries. You might feel like you’re on an amusement park ride—albeit a virtual one—on Tuesday, April 7. Early in the afternoon, rash Mars in your community sector forms its once-a-year troublesome square with unpredictable Uranus in your money zone. Whether you’ve taken a financial hit because your work has changed (or paused) or you’re lending money to people in your inner circle, you may find yourself having to make some lifestyle changes. Of course, that’s become “business as usual” in these unprecedented times. Set realistic limits, but remember that you will get to the other side of all this, and let that optimism keep pulling your forward. Perhaps you have some skills or talents that you can monetize from your living room—or kitchen? Aries are the masters of recognizing opportunities and seizing them, and this activating square could actually bring on a brainstorm!
Later that evening, the year's only Libra full moon illuminates your seventh house of partnerships. This week might spark an epiphany about where your key (or simmering-on-the-back-burner) relationship is headed. Is it time to officialize things—or make some major shifts in the way you communicate? Some Rams might realize that a platonic pal deserves to be upgraded from the friend zone, even if this starts off as a long-distance romance and stays that way for a while. Any important relationship that begins under this full moon has the potential to become serious, although given our new normal, it’s impossible to predict how things will unfold. But that gives you an opportunity—even if not one you’d choose—to take it slowly, not get obsessed and really get to know this person, whether it’s a love interest or business ally. If your love life is reduced to swiping, chatting and flirting, enjoy the lack of pressure. Anyone who emerges from the pack may have serious possibility!
You're generally a bit ahead of the curve when it comes to original ideas, but starting this Friday, you might be working at near-genius levels. Clever Mercury bolts into your sign until April 27, upleveling your creativity and brilliance. Whether you’ve found the perfect way to adapt your current work project or to stay in touch with technologically challenged people, the next two and a half weeks will keep you on your toes—and entertained. Even things you can’t act on immediately are worth recording, so keep a journal or other capture tool close by at all times. When you’re interacting with others for the rest of the month, stay mindful that not everyone will be as resilient as you are, Ram. Mercury encourages you to speak your mind (as if you need any encouragement), but consider people’s feelings before you blurt.
