Even when we experience turbulent cosmic weather, the universe is never here to punish us. Challenges are always here to help us grow.

A dramatic full moon in Scorpio — also known as April’s Pink Moon — arrives on the 23rd. It will be felt all week. We could experience some power struggles near this time, especially if our inner needs and desires aren’t being met.

Luckily, mercury retrograde ends on April 25, so know that once we get to the beginning of May, the pace of life will quicken, we’ll have a smile on our faces and we’ll be back on track!

Aries (March 21 to April 19)


Prepare for a rather intense week, Aries.

You’ll be deep in your feelings around situations that have been creeping up in recent weeks and you could almost feel as if you’re licking your wounds. A spotlight is being shown on where you stand in significant relationships, especially if you feel that your innermost needs and desires are not truly being fulfilled.

A settlement could also reach a turning point near this time, but it appears that someone is being a bit aggressive or pushing you into a corner that you do not want. The best thing to do is to stand up for yourself, but also lead from a place of compassion.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)


The universe is making you face the honest truth about your relationships this week, Taurus.

On a positive note, this could bring you closer to someone of importance in business or love. If single, you may cross paths with someone who embodies the traits of your ideal partner. However, if you are to separate, it’s because the two of you aren’t on the same page on the most basic of levels.

In truth, this week’s energy seems to reveal that either you or a partner is feeling a bit worn down and not able to juggle everything that life is throwing at you, especially with important news in career also adding pressure this week.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)


The week ahead could bring on an intense level of fatigue, Gemini.

In truth, it would be best to prioritize self-care and lead with a touch of self-love. You will likely be feeling burnt out and pulled between a million different responsibilities. With mounting pressures and some aggressive personalities glaring your way, you need to give yourself some grace and realize that even if you wish that you could get everything done, there are still only 24 hours in a day.

If you push too hard, you could end up draining your vitality, so guard your health even if major projects and situations with your employer are demanding more from you.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)


Romance, passion and pleasure are certainly close to your heart, Cancer.

The week ahead could bring some important news for you to face. You could experience a memorable moment around love, children or your hobbies, but it does appear that you will still need to juggle some challenges, too.

For instance, you could be discussing your feelings with a sweetheart, but one of you still feels not all of your needs are being met — or if you’re seeking to aid your child in one of their goals, you’re going to have to take out a big loan. Regardless, know that if you turn your attention to gratitude and joy, the force of your love can turn even murky skies to sunlight once again.

Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)


You’ll be deep in your emotions this week, Leo, and you could find that something is off when it comes to two areas of your life: home and family as well as partnerships.

With a major focus on your domestic life and real estate, you could be making important decisions around them, like moving or renovating. However, a significant partner, contract or vendor is out of place and requiring you to take a step back first.

Another way this could affect you — especially if you're living with someone — is that tension bubbles up because you’re so busy with other priorities, yet they feel that they’re doing the lion’s share of the work in regards to your home or family.

Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)


While many people could find that the week ahead is a bit rocky, you’ll likely fare a bit better, Virgo — especially after the 25th when your planetary ruler, Mercury, wakes up.

The full moon’s mixed energy highlights how you’re approaching new perspectives in life and how you communicate your ideas. On one hand, you could find that you do need to face a tough conversation or heart-to-heart, especially in regards to your employment and work life.

But if you speak from a place of confidence and calm, you should be able to proceed in a way that benefits all parties involved.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)


The week ahead is not the time to make an impulsive purchase, Libra, especially if you’re leading from a place of desire rather than need.

You may find that important news around your finances or employment pop up, or even that a surge of expenses appear. There is also some focus around your love life, hobbies or children — and you may have to make a hard choice around one of these themes that makes you want to sit back and re-evaluate how your life is moving forward.

On a positive note in regards to money matters, you could find that you are able to fight for a raise or find a new job if you hustle hard for it now.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)


The heavens will thunder your name this week, Scorpio!

You will feel like all eyes are on you as you stand in dominance. There will be many pressures mounting upon you now.

First, you’ll feel fired up to assert yourself and reach toward the goals and plans that mean the most to you. Next, important relationships will also be on the top of your mind and you could be working together—or going separate ways.

Last, there appears to be tension in regards to home, family or your domestic life, too. The best thing to do now is to center your spirit, stand up for yourself but do so from a place of serenity and know that you will proceed through this storm no matter what it throws at you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)


Now is not the time to charge headfirst into your next plan, path or adventure, Sagittarius.

In truth, the week ahead will make you feel tremendously nostalgic and reflective of the past. You need to appreciate where you’ve been in order to know confidently where you want to go. Even though you’ll likely experience some delays in work and life, it would be best to set aside some time for reflection in solitude.

Consider journaling, meditation, or simply giving yourself rest because you may feel a bit stressed and anxious at this time. Know that the cyclone will pass and better days do lie ahead.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)


You’re a wonderful friend and confidant, Capricorn, but there could be a bit of turmoil in your social life this week — especially if there is friction in regards to a friend or acquaintance around money.

You can be quite giving to those who you adore, but when you feel taken advantage of, you’ll harden your heart like a block of ice. With so much attention placed on your social life and friendships this week, you could find that you have an important discussion to clear the air to make sure you’re on the same page.

Note that your true connections can grow now, but it might be time to let go of those who aren’t bringing value to your life any more.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)


The week ahead has you quite eager to assert your power and garner the respect you deserve, Aquarius.

In recent years, you’ve noticed how your life is looking very different from your past, but you still deserve to be fully appreciated for who you are and what you’ve brought to the table. This week’s energy will also focus you greatly on your professional life, long-term legacy and ambitions — and you could find that in order to move toward these goals and plans, you’re going to need to take a different approach or fight for what you believe in.

Lead with confidence and grace, even if you’re feeling fired up and ready to go to war.

Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)


While many zodiac signs could feel the thunder and lightning of the week ahead intensely, you may move through it unscathed, Pisces.

The key to doing so is to focus on how you can unplug from any drama and instead focus on living in the moment and opening up your perspective on life. For instance, connecting with meditation, spirituality or religion may be particularly beneficial now or spending time learning new philosophies, ideas or academics.

Surround yourself with people, places and experiences that are different than your status quo and while everyone else is feeling the heat, you’ll be able to smile as you just swim on by.
