Weekly Horoscope: April 28-May 4, Hedonistic Indulgence

See what this week's horoscope has in store for you, including including Venus’s movement into Taurus

What is life for if we aren’t going to stop and smell the roses?

We are so often focused on racing forward that we don’t get to enjoy the simple pleasures. With work, our routines and the media, we're always pushed to think about what’s next.

Sometimes we lose touch with the present moment, what makes us happy and fulfilled and what we love and find beautiful — but don’t worry: I’ve got good news!

This week, as Venus glides into Taurus, we can indulge in hedonism. Also: spotlight April 29 and May 4 — perfect for a first date or sexy time with a sweetheart!

Read on for what this week has in store for you, based on your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 to April 19)


After weeks experiencing an extra special sparkle, Aries, you’re now going to be turning your attention to other levels of hedonism.

You like to treat yourself and others when you can — and beginning this week, you should have an extra surplus of cash to do just that. One of the most exciting things about this new energy is that you can attract beautiful, luxurious possessions if you spend a little extra time making this search a priority.

Consider gifting yourself something you’ve had your eye on, but also gifting something sweet to someone you care about. In life, when we give, we also will receive more from the universe.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)


As the tides turn, Taurus, you’re about to experience even more cosmic star power.

Not only is it birthday season, but there’s going to be a shift in your perception beginning this week — particularly in regards to your awareness of beauty and pleasure. Watch as colors seem more vibrant, music sounds richer and each experience carries a hidden aura of magic just waiting for you to uncover it.

The more that you turn your attention to appreciating the awe and wonder of the world and the people around you, the more that you will attract it. Suddenly, even more so than usual, your life will now feel like it’s in bloom.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)


When it comes to experiencing intimacy and connections, Gemini, you tend to prefer lively or social energy.

However, there will be a slight shift in the breeze this week if you're single, as you may feel the need to spend a bit more time in privacy. If you're in a relationship, you may feel the need to spend more time behind closed doors.

Others may notice that you’re being a bit more nostalgic about matters of the heart, whether that’s reflecting on an ex, “the one who got away” or even licking your wounds of a broken heart.

Still, you will realize it isn’t bad to be nostalgic! Sometimes, you can better appreciate the beauty of your life in the rearview mirror.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)


Some of your favorite moments in life are when you are surrounded by a group of people who you love to the core of your soul, Cancer.

You could find that the universe is putting you even more into a social mood this week, offering opportunities to appreciate the relationships you’ve built. Attending parties, gatherings or mixers will do you well.

Before you know it, you could find yourself fascinated by the life experiences and stories of those who you meet — or even enjoying a belly laugh so deeply, it echoes in your bones.

Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)


Of all the zodiac signs, Leo, you value recognition almost more than anyone else. Luckily, the week ahead could be showering you in more adoration.

As the week goes on, you could notice that more people are noticing you and your contributions and applauding you — not only for the big things, but the little ones, too. This could be as simple as a boss congratulating you on a good job, friends noticing your fabulous new style or a parent telling you that they’re proud of you.

At the greatest of levels, some of you could even feel as if a newfound crown is dangling before you.

Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)


Understanding the nuance of life is one of your specialties, Virgo.

You often try to keep your eyes out to recognize all of the little details just in case you need to fix something or someone at the first opportunity you get. Your conscientious nature empowers you in ways like you’re peering into a microscope about everything.

This week’s energy may also be pushing you to take a step back to look at the big picture and consider how you embrace beauty, pleasure and adventure — not only now, but throughout your life.

If you’re not feeling like you’re having “as much fun” as you’d like, the universe is saying you need to prioritize the things that make you happy, too.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)


As the week ahead proceeds, Libra, you’re going to be feeling more emotional. You'll also be feeling a deep need to touch, be touched and be close.

Sensuality is one of your strong suits and the week ahead could put you in the mood for extra hot romance. You don’t just want to be felt, however, as you hunger to be understood in your soul at the deepest of levels, too.

Embrace this energy in your life or simply treat yourself. Remember: you are more beautiful when you smile. You are loved and appreciated.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)


Throughout your life, Scorpio, you’ve noticed how relationships can be an “all or nothing” world for you.

You enjoy a passionate adventure, but sometimes you’ve noticed that some of your most fulfilling relationships are the ones where you can simply look into each other's eyes and feel seen and valued. The week ahead should bring more peace to your connections of all kinds but can be especially helpful if you are seeking a compromise or wish to make long-term plans.

Someone you care for will remind you that having you by their side is one of the greatest blessings in their lives, even if it’s without having to verbally say it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)


When it comes to life and relationships Sagittarius, you’re always looking for a spark.

You can throw yourself headfirst into something and then realize you’ve burnt the candle at both ends before it even reaches the destination you’d been hoping for. However, the key to the week ahead is to prioritize a healthy work and life balance so that you feel that all areas of your life are in bloom.

Romance takes work whether you're single or not, but the first thing you need to do is set aside time for it. This will help it grow.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)


For the past year, you’ve felt quite the hunger to experience more passion, pleasure and magic within your life and soul, Capricorn.

This week will add tinder on the flames of your heart. No matter if you’re single or taken, the key to enjoying the beauty in the moments now are to unlock your sense of childlike wonder and joy regardless of your age. Romance could bloom like a garden of roses in your heart.

If you aren't focused on romantic love at this time, consider how you can surround yourself with whatever sets your spirit on fire.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)


The week ahead will bring you an opportunity to get in touch with your sense of peace and serenity, Aquarius.

You may notice that as you spend time within your personal space or home, you feel quite safe and protected. If not, the energy will help you find ways to improve this balance, whether that’s extending an olive branch to family or fellow residents — or simply, adding décor to your space to make it more “you.”

If you do so now, or within the coming weeks, you could soon feel that your vibe has shifted and elevated.

Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)


The universe has blessed you with a very special kind of magic, Pisces. You can very easily tap into the vibe of any person, place or atmosphere.

This week, you’ll be able to weave love spells and enchantments with your ideas and words like a sorceress summons the elements, a musician captivates a crowd or a politician rallies a nation. Know that with your powers of persuasion and charm at their peak, you could also very quickly make the world around you bow to your plans.

The key, though, is to know what you want and want to say. Be strategic.
