Horoscopes for April 6 to April 12

By: Mary Morrison

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

Things seem to be progressing on an even keel for you at present, despite the retrograde movement of the planet Jupiter on Friday. You are likely to be spending a weekend among friends and family members, without so much as a hitch. Monday, on the other hand, is likely to raise one or two points that will challenge your right to retain your individuality within a partnership. However, you need not carry things to an extreme, since freedom is simply a state of mind in some cases!

PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

Mars enters your sign on Friday morning, which is likely to give your energies a boost and fire you with some enthusiasm for the weekend. Sunday’s Moon moves into conflict with the quirky Uranus, currently in your sign, which could cause some upheaval on the home front, despite the intervention of Jupiter, which will only add to the confusion. I can only assure you that the weekend will be far from dull! Tuesday, on the other hand, is likely to be a good day for reaching agreements of a business nature.of the matter. The unattached can anticipate an evening of romance on Thursday.

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)

The Moon’s conjunction with the benevolent Jupiter will set you up in fine fettle this weekend. You might turn out to be quite the party animal, particularly on Saturday. Monday’s Moon is favourable to your ruling planet Mars, which should assist in solving any problems that you might be experiencing in the fields of travel and communications. For the unattached, Thursday’s Moon will shine upon you with loving kindness.

TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)

The ways of Neptune are subtle and often hidden, which just about sums up your current state of mind. You might be wondering whether you are coming or going this weekend, when the only thing for it is to stand still and gather your wits (and your children) about you. Sunday’s conjunction between the Moon and Jupiter, however, will help you to see daylight, despite the misty solitudes wrought by Neptune’s design to cause confusion.

GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 21)

The planet Jupiter, currently in your opposite sign of Sagittarius, turns retrograde on Friday, which might upset the apple cart in your solar house of partnership. Sunday is likely to produce some sort of shake down within the family circle before you can reach a workable compromise. Monday, on the other hand, is very favourable for business opportunities, as long as you are willing to make a snap decision, because it will not do to wait until Wednesday.

CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)

Your weekend is likely to start with a change of agenda, due to Jupiter’s retrograde movement on Friday. However, you should strive to refrain from blaming others for circumstances which are, after all, beyond their control. The Moon’s conjunction with Pluto will help you to achieve great things on Monday, particularly in the financial and business sense. Wednesday might be a little bit tricky for you should you happen to be involved in transactions concerning the field of communications.

LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)

You might feel on Friday that things have ground to a halt in your scheme of things, due to Jupiter turning retrograde in the early hours of the morning. Nevertheless, you can look forward to an enjoyable weekend, thanks to your ability to amuse others with your “sunny” nature. Monday’s Moon enters the practical sign of Capricorn to encourage you to pursue a business venture all the way to the top. Tuesday is likely to be a day when all your magnetism and charm is needed when confronted by an irate neighbour!

VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)

There is likely to be a momentary “tight spot” for you on Friday, from which you will extricate yourself with some difficulty. This might have a salutary effect on your nervous system for a day or two, unless you can find the time to unwind on Saturday. Sunday’s Moon joins hands with Jupiter to create a harmonious atmosphere in your domain, despite the world and his wife beating a path to your door! Mercury, your ruling planet, moves into conflict with the powerful Pluto on Wednesday, when you will need to avoid confrontation with people in authority at all costs.

LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 23)

Things might not have been running smoothly in your personal life just lately, but there is no need for you to become depressed about it. The situation is only temporary and will soon right itself in a week or two. Sunday’s conjunction between the Moon and Jupiter is likely to bring you some heartening news which will brighten up your weekend and raise your spirits. Tuesday’s aspect between the Sun and Jupiter will incline the young at heart towards romance.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)

The weekend is likely to try your patience somewhat, particularly when younger family members strive to assert their right to independence and freedom of choice. It might be a good idea to allow them some slack, without compromising your position as commander in chief! Sunday’s conjunction of the Moon and Jupiter should bring a truce between all parties concerned. Monday is a good time for you to tackle any issues of a financial nature, particularly where jointly held assets are concerned.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)

Jupiter, your ruling planet, currently in your sign, turns retrograde on Friday. This is likely to cause a degree of frustration as far as your plans for the weekend are concerned. However, there are other factors that will emerge during this coming week, chiefly in the realm of financial investment and commercial enterprise. You might be better off if you put plans on hold for a while and not rush into anything until you are certain of all the facts. The unattached have an opportunity on Sunday for romance.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)

The fiery Mars enters your solar house of travel on Friday as Jupiter turns retrograde, which could scupper any plans that you might have for a quiet weekend’s break. However, this does not signify a disappointment, as Saturday will bring you a pleasant surprise which will compensate for any “loss”. Monday’s Moon enters your sign and moves to make a favourable aspect to the energetic Mars, which should bode well for home and property transactions.
