Your Weekly Horoscopes: April 10 to 16, 2022
This week’s astrology is an absolute tour de force. While the sun’s connection with Saturn early in the week has us setting practical goals, Jupiter’s exact conjunction with Neptune on the 12th pushes our dreams to a whole different level. This extremely rare and idealistic aspect happens only once every 13 years, and is found in the charts of tech billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk, enigmatic artists like Lorde and Snoop Dogg, and presidents like FDR and Bill Clinton. Both innovation and delusion are possible in Jupiter-Neptune times. Whether you’re floating on air, reaching new heights or falling deeper into the depths, try not to take anything that happens right now at face value. Everything will make more sense at a later date. To add to the whirlwind, Mars moves into Pisces on the 14th where the action planet solves problems via empathy and co-creation. Then the full moon in Libra on the 16th further illuminates our desire to work together through powerful change.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)
Feeling confident enough to show up as yourself day after day is a bigger accomplishment than you realize, Aries. Sure, you’re known for being a firebrand or the life of the party, but it takes real commitment to live in your kind of authenticity. You’re rapidly opening up more space in your life for meditation, reflection and solo adventures to further support your growth. The full moon in Libra on the 16th illuminates who’s cosigning this glow up. The people who love you want you to be free!
This week’s mantra: “I am who I am.”
Though you might feel like you’re not making the strides in your career or public image that you set out to this year, you’re doing way more than you think you are. It will all make sense in retrospect. The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction on the 12th highlights how much your community and audience has already grown, opening up space for even more connections. Trusting that friends and colleagues have your back is what encourages you to commit to the hard work illuminated by the full moon in Libra on the 16th.
This week’s mantra: “My community is built around trust.”
As much as you love having your hands in way too many pots, establishing clear energetic boundaries is a key to your happiness. The conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune on the 12th brings fantastic opportunities for your career, but not all of these ventures are meant for you right now. Curate your curiosity! Trust that no matter what you choose, your influence is expanding. Sometimes doing less is really doing more.
This week’s mantra: “I lead with intention.”
Whether you’re deep in study, travel or spiritual practice, your mind is expanding in ways that were previously unimaginable. The full moon in Libra on the 16th allows you to release grudges—especially involving judgemental opinions from your family—that have made you feel small or forced you to play things safe. Though your parents might wish you were studying something more practical, and your sister might not understand why you prioritize travel over having a family, it’s important for you to share your successes with them. You might be surprised by how open minded they really are.
This week’s mantra: “I release the need to please everyone.”
Whether you’re starting a small business, combining assets with your partner or getting a huge tax break, your financial world is expanding through taking advantage of joint resources right now. As you lean into this era of asking for help and accepting generosity, you might want to reflect on your energetic spending as well. The full moon in Libra on the 16th is an opportunity to evaluate your schedule and communications, and to reprioritize accordingly. You don’t need to stick around in that group chat, email chain or local Facebook group that’s eating up all your free time.
This week’s mantra: “My time is valuable.”
The support, intimacy and romance available to you reaches new heights as Jupiter comes together with Neptune on the 12th. You pride yourself on being practical and self-sufficient, but isn’t it refreshing to be the one receiving help for a change? The full moon in Libra on the 16th highlights your values, putting a particular emphasis on the ways you’ve been undervalued in relationships of the past. This full moon allows you to shamelessly speak up about your needs.
This week’s mantra: “I deserve unlimited love.”
Jupiter and Neptune coming together in your sixth house of hard work has helped you fall back in love with the things that fill your days. Errands are romantic, coworkers are your besties and fitness routines are a dream under these skies. But in some ways, you’ve been doing more fantasizing than actual living. As Mars enters Pisces on the 14th, you’re inspired to make your healthy lifestyle goals into a reality. Take those new running sneakers out for a spin! The full moon on the 16th illuminates how important it is to take care of both your body and your mind.
This week’s mantra: “I wake up everyday and do what I love.”
After six weeks of struggles at home—soaring rent prices, family conflicts and relocation difficulties—things ease up this week as your ruling planet Mars enters Pisces and your pleasure sector on the 14th. If you’ve been waiting for the right moment to get back into dating, there’s no time like the present. Simultaneously, the full moon in Libra on the 16th reveals how much happier you are when you take personal space. As you enter a season of connection, don’t forget that the most important relationship you have is with yourself.
This week’s mantra: “I need balance as much as I need connection.”
Though your adventurous spirit can’t wait to be away on your next big trip, you can’t deny that you’re also becoming a true domestic goddess. Jupiter’s visit to Pisces and your home sector this year has allowed you to move into the space of your dreams while Neptune’s influence has encouraged you to get super creative with style and decorating. Though in some ways the entire year has felt like a bit of a housewarming party for you, the full moon in Libra on the 16th is the perfect time to actually send out invitations and get your friends over to celebrate.
This week’s mantra: “My home is not a mirage, but an oasis.”
The full moon in Libra on the 16th is a chance to assess power dynamics in your professional life. You’re being asked to step away from something that’s holding you back so you can take up more space in the future. This is both cathartic and anxiety-inducing. As you move through these growing pains, don’t underestimate the healing power of creating an idyllic environment. Invite more magic into your daily walks, weekly phone calls with friends, and quick trips to commune with nature.
This week’s mantra: “I want more but I appreciate what I already have.”
The full moon in Libra on the 16th marks a turning point for you in regards to education, travel or spirituality. This is a moment for finding a mentor, putting down a deposit for that yoga retreat or triumphantly submitting your final paper of the semester. Meanwhile, the conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune on the 12th is helping you dream bigger when it comes to money. It’s no longer cute to let a scarcity mindset hold you back. Define what you need and the resources will come.
This week’s mantra: “I’m open to more.”
With Jupiter and Neptune making their rare conjunction in your sign on the 12th, you’re likely overwhelmed with the blessings that are coming your way this week. With Mars joining the party in your sign on the 14th, your charm and magnetism are at an all time high and so is your capacity for burnout. The full moon in Libra on the 16th is a powerful moment to take control of your debts and expand your collaborations. Being generous with the opportunities coming your way means you also have to learn how to delegate.
This week’s mantra: “I accept the blessings coming my way.”
