Weekly Horoscope for April 29-May 5, 2019
Weekly Horoscope for April 29 - May 5, 2019
This week is a big one for honesty. Both Mercury (planet of communication) and Mars (warrior planet) are encouraging us to be more assertive in the way we communicate. Saturn retrogrades this week, challenging us to take an honest look at the foundations we’ve built our lives on—a theme that will continue to repeat itself over the next few months. At the end of the week, the Taurus New Moon invites us to take an honest look at how comfortable and secure we feel in our life and gives us an opportunity to create plans and intentions around levelling up our 3D world.
8:54pm ET- Saturn Rx in Capricorn
On the 29th, Saturn retrogrades alongside Pluto in its home sign of Capricorn to help you re-evaluate and possibly restructure the foundations (i.e., rules, belief systems, goals/ambitions, root conditionings) on which you have built your life. Over the next 5 months consider: Do these foundations align with who you are and who you are becoming? Or are they just serving as barriers that limit your personal power?
2:37am ET - Mercury in Aries sextile Mars in Gemini
This week, you may be given the opportunity to stand up for yourself or you may find yourself in a situation where you’re persuading someone else to be more assertive in their communication with others. While learning how to be assertive is an important skill, please remember that there is a way to be heard and get your needs met without resorting to aggression, manipulation or invalidating another person’s truth. Stay woke.
4:49am ET - Mercury in Aries square Saturn Rx in Capricorn
You may also find that even though you have the opportunity to defend or express yourself, it’s not very easy to do it. Maybe it’s self-doubt, or fear that whatever you have to say won’t be received the way you need it to. Perhaps you fear the consequences of what happens once you say what needs to be said. Either way, whenever a challenge arises in our life, we can either rise to the occasion and handle it, or we can let it turn us into a victim. My advice? Show up for the challenge and speak your truth, even if your voice shakes.
5:51pm ET - Mercury in Aries square Pluto Rx in Capricorn
You know that conversation you had (or needed to have) earlier? Well now, you’re obsessing about it. If you feel something was left unsaid, you’re probably right but now is probably not the best time to get to the root of the matter. The best thing you can do for yourself is to cleanse, purge, and let it out. Whether that means soaking in the tub, smudging, meditating, getting a powerful workout in, or all of the above, do what you need to do to get your mind and energy right.
11:58pm ET - Mercury in Aries trine Jupiter Rx in Sagittarius
This transit can go a couple different ways.
If the events of this week has you hot and bothered, and you’ve increased your self-care routines (including the intensity of your workouts) as a way to help you cope, then this transit will allow you to see where this hiccup fits in the larger scheme of things. You may realize this whole situation is petty and insignificant and as a result, decide to drop your attachment to it.
On the other hand, the situation might start spiral out of control. Jupiter tends to exaggerate whatever it touches and can add a pinch of arrogance as well. This is a good time consider whether you may be making a mountain out of a molehill. Are you perceiving the situation clearly? Is it possible that you’re coming to the wrong conclusions? Take a moment and think clearly about the situation.
6:45pm ET - New Moon in Taurus
A time of new beginnings and re-commitments, the Taurus New Moon asks you to consider this one question before planting any seeds of intention: What are you building?
Take this weekend to reflect on your values — your perceived values (i.e., the ones that live in your mind) and the ones that you actively pursue, consciously or not. Our values dictate where we spend our time, energy, and money and thus, will shed a light on the kind of life we are manifesting should we continue down this path.
Additionally, this New Moon is perfect for financial planning, adding more stability to your life, building self-worth, treating yourself (luxuriating), exploring sensuality, and working on your relationship with your body.
5:56pm ET - Mars in Gemini opposite Jupiter in Sagittarius
At the end of the week the Universe uses the opposition between Mars and Jupiter to ask us to consider how our actions have affected others. Specifically, you might find this week that the root of whatever you’ve been confronting or have been confronted with has to do with levels of confidence (or arrogance) about taking risks, or ever estimating one’s ability/capacity and how that has impacted those around you. If you (or someone at work/in your life) has bitten off more than they can chew get honest. If this is about you, get honest about your limitations and stay within them. If this is about someone else, be honest with them about how their lack of self-awareness has impacted your ability to function at your highest capacity. Honesty here is the best policy.
