Reading time: just 3 minutes that will make your week easier.
04-06-2020 to 04-12-2020
Your expansive self might be getting itchy feet by now, but you’re probably also becoming a master of self-entertainment. Things might reach a “tipping point” on Tuesday, April 7, however, when restless Mars in your communication center slams into maverick Uranus in your zone of health and service. Before you give in to that urge to take a long walk, make sure you’re adhering to local advisories and taking every precaution. There are ways to escape mandatory confinement, but your indie-spirited sign can’t make your own rules. Same goes for any intuitive "hits" you get today. All downloads are not created equal, and just because you sense something doesn't make it 100 percent accurate. Before you try mind-reading, practice the equally impressive art of authentic, compassionate conversation. Better than guessing what someone’s thinking, see what happens if you come right out and ask them. Likewise, don’t expect anyone to know what’s going on in your head or heart. If you’ve got something important to share—for better or worse—wait for a calm and quiet moment, then ask if you might “have a word.” Everyone’s dealing with enough frustration; no need to compound it with innuendo or cryptic communication!
In a stroke of inconvenient timing, the year’s only full moon in Libra lights up your eleventh house of friendship and group activity. While this could have a depressing effect—since gatherings are available only via video conferencing—you can also lean into your innate Sagittarian optimism and see all the opportunities! The eleventh house rules organizations and technology. If your “rugged individualism” has prevented you from joining the plethora of online masterminds, webinars and private Facebook groups, these next two weeks (peak manifesting time for this lunation) might help you see things from a more open-minded perspective. Whether through websites or apps, you CAN make new friends and find inspiring teachers. Since Libra is the sign of balance, these moonbeams might tip you in the other direction if you’re spending ALL your time with virtual mates. Create a schedule where you also step away from the screen and enjoy some quality time with the people under your roof or your closest friends, wherever they may be.
On Friday, playful Mercury waltzes into Aries and your romantic and innovative fifth house, suggesting that you might need to get creative about your love life. Couples won’t need to be overly original—just make a conscious point of being kinder and more patient with each other. For new relationships, or if you’re single, you may learn more about your real needs during this poorly timed flirtatious cycle. Some Archers may realize you’re quite content on your own while others could feel randier than ever. Luckily, you can right-swipe with wild abandon—and even widen your search parameters to different continents. When it’s time to travel again, you might have a paramour in every port.
