Reading time: just 3 minutes that will make your week easier.
04-06-2020 to 04-12-2020
Whether you’re working from home, are in an essential industry and on the frontlines or have been furloughed, this week’s theme is establishing a better balance between work and play—even if your only career initiatives are looking for a temporary gig or figuring out how to reinvent yourself. On Tuesday, April 7, a once-a-year square (90-degree clash) between activating Mars in your service sector and disruptive Uranus in your free-spirited ninth house could drive up your stress levels. Your sign is always ready to lend a hand and do your bit, but this internal tug of war might spur you to rebel against the powers that be, especially if you’re not seeing eye-to-eye with their leadership style or policies. If you have to kowtow to a larger consensus, see if there’s a way to voice your concern without looking like an instigator. Sometimes you simply have to go along, but other times, Virgo, it’s worth expressing your point of view, especially if it might help people or make a team project run more efficiently (your specialty!).
Later on Tuesday, the year’s only Libra full moon sends a lightning bolt through your second house of money and security. This could bring your efforts of the past several months to a culmination. Your patient sign knows that you can’t rush a seed to sprout and bear fruit, and if that’s finally happening now, get ready to harvest your bounty. This might mark the completion of a project or indicate that it’s time for you to move on. Make sure you collect everything that’s coming to you, whether that’s a PDF for your portfolio, a commission or praise in the form of a referral or testimonial. Hard as it can be for your humble sign to ask, don’t put this part off. It’ll never be easier than now—with the sweet smell of success still in the air—to request what you deserve. Since full moons also illuminate things that have been hidden, this lunar light in your second house could reveal an overlooked or surprising source of income. Take time over the next two weeks (peak manifesting time for this full moon) to get all your financial affairs in order so you’ll be ready to pull the metaphoric trigger when things return to something resembling normal.
On Friday, your cosmic co-pilot, expressive Mercury, slides into Aries and your eighth house of seduction and eroticism. This short-but-sultry cycle (until April 27) can inspire you to be unusually forthright about your desires and fantasies. If you’re not cohabitating with your love interest, you’ll have to find some virtual ways to communicate these things, perhaps on a VERY private video chat. If you’d been simmering in serious-flirt mode with someone before being quarantined, your attraction could reach a full boil. On the other hand, if you’re in an LTR and out of nowhere start feeling jealous or possessive, calm yourself down and then broach the subject in a rational way. Under the current stressful situation, it’s easy to get bent of out shape and overreact.
