GEORGIA NICOLS April 14, 2019
All Signs: On Friday, we have the second Full Moon in Libra that happens this month. Although it will especially affect those born Oct. 19-25, it will affect of all of us in terms of how we relate to others. But hey, relax! The truth is what affects us more, everyday and every month, is the company we keep because we are like crystals that reflect the colors that surround us. This means we reflect the qualities of the people around us. When we are with people who are angry, intolerant and arrogant, there’s a chance we start to act this way, too. Best to distance ourselves from these people. Meanwhile, I’m trying to distance myself from Ben & Jerry, who are lurking in the freezer.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This is an eventful week, because both Mercury and Venus move into Aries! Mercury will make you more talkative and eager to communicate. You will put more of yourself into whatever you say. Admittedly, your mind will flip from topic to topic and you will want to get out and travel! Meanwhile, Venus will make you oh so charming. You will schmooze with others and have good times. These qualities will help you deal with the Full Moon on Friday that opposes your sign. This is a strong week. Your feet are planted firmly on the ground. You will say what you mean and mean what you say.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This week the Sun, Mercury and Venus are all in a hidden part of your chart. (By the end of the week, there will be a shift when the Sun moves into your sign.) The hidden aspect of these planets will likewise create a tendency in you to keep your opinions to yourself and communicate less to others. You will feel introspective and hence, more in touch with your inner personality. You will like to go off by yourself and study or do research. You might also be called upon to take care of someone who needs your help. Because you’re focused on finances and money right now, research on your job or how to boost your earnings will be fruitful.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is a social week for you because now both Mercury and Venus join the Sun in your House of friendships. Not only will you enjoy hanging out with your friends, you will also enjoy increased activity with groups, classes and organizations. Quite likely, you will be more involved with younger people as well as creative artistic types. This fresh influence might affect your thoughts about your future goals and what you want to achieve. Romance will be pleasant and friendly. Meanwhile, you will be more verbal and excited about having intellectual exchanges with others. Expect some stimulating banter. Don’t leave home without your thesaurus.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Look at you! This week, Mercury and Venus are at the top of your chart with the Sun. This combination of planets makes you high viz! People notice you, especially bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs plus they will listen to you. Furthermore, they will be charmed by you! Without you doing anything special, you have the power to influence others and also to place yourself into different situations that intrigue you. This means that doors will open for you and you will more easily get what you want. You will be convincing; in fact, a flirtation with a boss might begin. You could use your increased power to benefit someone who needs help.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This will be a restless, exciting week because you have a strong desire to explore new ideas, to learn more, to study different philosophies, religions and consciousness-expanding schools of thought. This desire to reach out and learn will also translate into a desire to travel. You might develop a crush on someone who is different or from another culture. It will be an easy week to study for those of you in school or who are working on a paper or manuscript. It will also be an excellent week to teach. Because you are curious and open to new ideas and meeting new people – it’s a fabulous week for a vacation. Bon voyage!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This is a financial, money week for you. Mercury and Venus will join the Sun in one of your Money Houses, specifically the House of the wealth of others or the wealth of your partner. This means you will be focused on shared property, wills, inheritances, insurance issues, taxes and debt. Venus will sweeten this situation for you. In fact, Venus will attract money to you from other sources. Yay! Meanwhile, Mercury will make you do the research and missionary work to get the best results for what you are negotiating. On Friday, these issues will come to a head with the Full Moon. After that, the dust settles and you’re looking swell!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
An unusual planetary combo faces you this week because Mercury and Venus join the Sun in direct opposition to your sign. Yup, it’s time to lock and load. On the upside, with Mercury opposite you, it’s a good time to clarify and explain your position about something to someone. You can discuss any difficulties that have arisen in your relationship. In fact, you will enjoy a spirited debate! Fortunately, Venus opposite your sign beautifully paves the way for all your relationships by making it easy for you to express your affection to others. (Smoochie boochies!) This is a good thing because there will be a buildup of tension between you and others before the Full Moon on Friday. (Especially if you’re born at the end of your sign.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
“I owe, I owe, off to work we go!” Yes, this week is about work, responsibilities, perseverance and diligence. Actually, you are a tough sign who is an extremely hard worker. This week, you’re prepared to do all kinds of mental work because you can pay attention to details. Your mind will be focused and sharp. You will plan things carefully and will not be caught by surprise. Venus will ensure good relations with coworkers. Others will help you. This is a great week to discuss agreements and gain financial favours from others. If you do have disputes about shared property, you’ll come out smelling like a rose. “Beam me up, Scotty.”
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This has been a pleasant, playful time and this week gets even better! (Mom always liked you best.) Mercury and Venus now join the Sun in your Fifth House of fun and pleasure. This makes you keen to express your thoughts and communicate your ideas to others. You will want to use your mind for amusement – reading, writing and playing games that require mental agility. It’s a great week to relate to kids because of your interest in games, sports and fun. Romance is also blessed because you can get along with your main squeeze without surrendering your identity. There’s no need to pretend to be what you are not. Major coolness!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
It’s old home week for you because this week, your attention is focused on home, family, real estate and your private world. You might be involved with a parent more than usual. Family discussions will take place, possibly pertaining to an older family member, or to needed home repairs. Fortunately because Venus is also on this area, your relations with family will be warm and close. Many of you will be involved in redecorating projects. You might want to entertain at home. You might also want to check out real estate possibilities or renting something different. However, the bottom line will be a sense of wanting to retire and relax at home so you can enjoy your life.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Recently, your life has been fast-paced, and this week it will be even faster! Group discussions and conversations with others will be par for the course. Expect to meet new people and travel more because you hunger for intellectual stimulation. This is great week to speak out to others as well as listen. Get out and stay busy. Do not stay home getting dusty. Expect a fast-paced tempo. A lovely blessing will be that you will enjoy talking to others! In fact, you will feel strong affection for them and realize that they care for you, too. (Gosh.) Furthermore, you will see beauty in your everyday surroundings that you never noticed before. Yes, this does smack of pixie dust but it’s true.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Ka-ching! You still have money on your mind, but now this is stronger because Mercury and Venus have both moved into your House of Earnings. The good news is that you are going to be full of moneymaking ideas and look for ways to boost your earnings or how to make money on the side. People will be impressed with what you have to say. Admittedly, because of this financial focus, many of you will spend money more than usual on beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. Oh well, you can’t take it with you. You never see a hearse pulling a U-Haul. Be patient with family members, because conflict at home can arise now due to increased pressures, activity and general craziness.
