You’re not one to hold back your opinions, Capricorn, but recently, your “constructive critique” may have taken the wind out of someone’s sails. Even if they ASKED you to weigh in, you may sense some distance ever since…probably because your candid observations were a little TOO true. If you’re feeling guilty, go make nice this Monday, April 15. With magnanimous Jupiter getting nudged by diplomatic Venus, you’ll be able to reframe your feedback in a way that also honors the person-in-question. Make sure you buffer your remix with a “praise sandwich,” heaping on acknowledgment and gratitude as your openers and closers. The same holds true for anyone you want to have a talk with this week. When you let people know what they’re doing right (first!) it’s a lot easier to deliver the corrections that must be discussed. Moreover, stay open to what the other person has to say without getting defensive. This could be a teachable moment for both of you!
Friday also brings exciting news on the career front, as the full moon in Libra—the second in a rare back-to-back pair—gets you primed for success. Word of a promotion or enticing new gig could come your way. Or, you may finally hear back from a “whale” client who will keep you busy with work for days. Don't ease off the throttle! It might take another two weeks to get everything moving along and you want to make sure people know that you’re engaged and ready to deliver the best. Give your professional profiles a polish and make sure to post all the links and examples of your latest wins. A little social media bragging wouldn’t hurt either near Friday, especially if you tag people strategically who inspired this victory. If your contact database is a little too thin, get recommendations for professional networking organizations where you can meet the kind of people you WANT to invite to a power lunch. Already well connected? Set up some power lunches so you can talk shop strategically with people in your field. Men will be especially helpful over the next two weeks. Your natural comfort in being part of the boys' club, along with this full moon, can shatter any last bit of glass ceiling!
Handle matters on the home front before Saturday as the Sun winds down its final five days in Aries. Make time in your busy schedule to get the repair people in to fix that leaky faucet. Show up to support your inner circle where you can. Maybe it’s time to book a flight to visit someone you love, even if you DO have to make it a “working vacation.” Although the Sun leaves Aries on Saturday, two other planets enter the Ram’s realm this week: Mercury from Wednesday until May 6, then Venus from Saturday until May 15. Communicating regularly with family—and feathering your nest with beautiful touches (!)—could be major themes over the coming few weeks. And so, too, could entertaining! With the Sun zipping through Taurus, your festive, romantic fifth house will be on fire until May 21. Assemble your most fun-loving friends and get some dinner parties and playdates on the calendar. Love is definitely on the agenda and you can look forward to a spring awakening for your libido between now and then. But don’t rush into anything serious. Single Sea Goats may actually enjoy sampling Cupid’s tasting menu. Plus you don’t want to skip the courtship dance, which can tell you so much about how willing a potential bae is to invest in you. Attached? Stoke the embers by treating each other like something shiny and new. Get more dress-up dates on the books (to be capped off by undressing dates), as well as some outdoor adventures and weekend trips. Babies on the brain? The fertile fifth house energy is perfect for pregnancies. Or maybe you’ll give birth to something of an entirely different nature, namely, your creative brainchild.
