Your Weekly Astrology Forecast
April 10 – 16, 2023
Dates and Times Are Given in EDT
Monday, April 10. The week gets off to a pleasant start thanks to some friendly, upbeat energy from the transiting Moon in Sagittarius. It’s no secret that the Archer is an adventurous sign, which is why many of you will feel called to expand your horizons. With Venus (pleasure) entering Gemini at 12:48 AM on Tuesday, you may be inspired to pursue more than one interest. If so, and especially if you’re torn between them, look to Venus (values) to help you decide which one will bring you the most fulfillment at this time.
Tuesday, April 11. This is by far the best day of the week. The only caveat is that you should delay starting a new venture or engaging in activities that need a concrete result until after 1:34 PM EDT in order to sidestep the void moon.
What makes this day an energetically wonderful one is that Venus is trine Pluto and the Sun-Jupiter conjunction is Cazimi, an Arabic term meaning “in the heart of the Sun.” For those of you who are unfamiliar with this term, Cazimi only occurs when a planet’s conjunction to the Sun is within 17 minutes (not degrees). It makes the conjunction much more powerful as it brings out the best of planet that is conjunct the Sun.
Venus trine Pluto. This influence is a highly beneficial one for relationships (new or existing ones) because it fosters love, intimacy and devotion. It’s also very favorable for money, because it promotes the accumulation of wealth. This makes it an excellent day for deepening your relationships, as well as your pockets.
Jupiter Cazimi. The transiting Sun-Jupiter conjunction is one of the most feel-good, positive energies because it inspires optimism, enthusiasm and confidence while it increases creativity, passion, joy and self-expression. If we begin something new under this influence (conjunctions mark the ending/beginning of cycles), we do so with a hopeful attitude for a rewarding outcome.
However, since this one is Cazimi, it amplifies the best that the Greater Fortune has to offer, and that includes opportunity, growth, justice, faith, wisdom, benevolence, prosperity, generosity and success.
So what does it mean for you? It means the odds are high that luck is on your side today. Naturally, there are no guarantees here. It’s up to us to work with the energy and make the most of it. Since it occurs in Aries, there’s a focus on action (which is why you need to be mindful of the void moon I mentioned earlier), which can be as simple as making a decision about your future direction or as complex as pulling the trigger on a huge venture.
And on that note, I encourage you to think twice if you’re going to take a bold leap of faith. While it’s true that Cazimi traditionally brings out the best in the planet, the truth is it amplifies all of its energy, and there’s often a fine line between Jupiter expansion and Jupiter excess.
Wednesday, April 12. Don’t let today’s transiting moon in somber Capricorn cast doubt on yesterday’s dreams. Instead, channel its organized, ambitious and hardworking energy to create a concrete plan to make those aspirations a reality.
Thursday, April 13. There may be some emotional bumps during the early hours of the day as the moon makes its last aspects before entering a void stage from 10:15 AM – 4:43 PM). Since a void moon isn’t considered favorable for initiating new ventures or engaging in activities where you want or need a definite result, it’s best to stick to routine manners and engage in activities that don’t require a specific outcome.
Friday, April 14. This is the easily the most challenging day of the week. With Venus square Saturn, some of you may be forced to face a sobering reality about your relationships or finances. If so, it’s important to understand there is a good cosmic reason for it, which is to compel you to examine the matter from all angles, including your self-esteem, so that going forward you don’t settle for less than you deserve.
Saturday, April 15. The overall energy of the day is a pleasant one that will help soothe the nerves of those of you who had an unsettling day yesterday.Since the moon is void from 11:17 AM – 6:58 PM today, it’s best to stick to routine activities that don’t require a specific outcome or perhaps use the day for some rest and relaxation.
Sunday, April 16. The week ends on a pleasant note with the transiting Moon in Pisces making supportive aspects from 7:00 AM – 7 PM that support spiritual practices such as yoga, intuitive development, writing, journaling, artistic endeavors and anything that promotes greater self-understanding.
