Horoscopes for April 13 to April 19

By: Mary Morrison

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

You might be a little impulsive with your spending on Saturday when the Moon conjuncts your ruling planet, Uranus. It would be advisable to think before you act, otherwise you could end up with a white elephant on your hands. The conflict between the Moon and Pluto on Sunday will certainly help you to sort the sheep from the wolves when it comes to a question of loyalties. Saturn, currently in your opposite sign, Leo, moves forward on Thursday, forging new partnerships for the unattached.

PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

Saturday’s conjunction of the Moon and Uranus in your sign is likely to encourage you to do something bordering on the outrageous in the eyes of other family members! However, you, I am sure, will not be too concerned over those who deign to sit in judgement without being in possession of all the facts. The New Moon will see you in a buoyant frame of mind and ready to take on a new challenge.

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)

Your weekend is likely to be somewhat hectic on the home front, as the Moon joins hands with the eccentric Uranus on Saturday afternoon, when anything could happen! This week could be make or break time in the field of personal relationships, and you will have to make adjustments around the New Moon on Tuesday. You are, however, sure to come to an understanding, particularly where finance is concerned, on Thursday, when the Sun aligns with the powerful Pluto to bring your efforts to fruition, adding the necessary ingredient for success, namely consistency.

TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)

The Moon’s conflict with your ruling planet, Venus, could upset the apple cart in your solar house of income and expenditure at the start of the weekend. However, you are more than capable of re-arranging your accounts and cutting your cloth accordingly. The trouble might arise when younger family members might not appreciate the wisdom behind your strategy. Tuesday’s New Moon is a good time for the unattached to turn a friendship into a romance, or vice versa.

GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 21)

You might have been experiencing a few problems in the field of modern technology and communications just lately, Friday being no exception. However, this phase is coming to a close and hopefully the week ahead will be less frustrating for you. Tuesday’s New Moon in your solar house of ambition will set the stage for a new scenario which will be more to your liking. The unattached are favoured on Thursday when the Moon enters your sign and Saturn begins to move forward in the amorous sign of Leo.

CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)

riday’s Moon joins hands with Neptune, which will serve to throw a blanket of confusion over the day’s proceedings. You can only sit back and go with the flow in order to retain your sanity, as there is little else you can do to have any effect. The New Moon on Tuesday is likely to ring in the changes for those seeking promotion in their career. The unattached are also favoured on Tuesday, which is a good time for meeting people and for making new friends.

LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)

There might be some slight tension around the home on Saturday, when you are likely to find yourself at the centre of a power struggle between you and other family members. You might find it rather difficult to give the other parties some leeway but, if you do not climb down from your high horse, you might find yourself stuck in the mire until the New Moon on Tuesday!

VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)

The Moon’s transit through your opposite sign, Pisces, is likely to turn your attention to matters concerning partnership this weekend. You might not get the co-operation that you need on Saturday, which could make it necessary for you to change your plans. However, this need not lead to a stony silence on your part, and all you have to do is wait for Tuesday when a better line of communication will be available.

LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 23)

You might not know whether you are coming or going at the start of this weekend, the only advantage being that the decisions will be taken out of your hands! Sunday evening, however, is a time when you can take up the reins and go whichever way you choose, within the bounds of reason. If you happen to be unattached and in search of a mate, Tuesday’s New Moon is likely to produce a suitable contender. Your financial affairs are likely to require your attention on Wednesday and you are advised to scale down your spending to a minimum.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)

The chances are that you have been working very hard recently and your system is likely to be in need of a rest. The Moon’s conjunction to Uranus could give you the opportunity to take a last minute break away from the pressures of modern day living. Sunday’s conflict between the Moon and your ruling planet, Pluto, will cause you to stop and think twice before involving yourself in what might turn out to be a can of worms.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)

Jupiter, your ruling planet, is currently retrograde in your sign, which might be holding things up in the communications field and causing you some slight frustration when trying to get the message across! The Moon’s conflict with Pluto on Sunday will do little to help the situation, as you are faced with recalcitrant, younger family members.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)

You might wonder on Saturday if the world about you has lost the plot, or if you are not in your right mind! There is no need to worry unduly, as you can put it all down to the Moon’s antics with the quirky Uranus. Sunday’s conflict between the Moon and Pluto, however, will, no doubt, bring things to order in your household.
