Your Weekly Horoscopes: April, 14 to 20, 2024

A once-in-a-14-year conjunction awaits us

Greta Lee from Past Lives contemplative, framed by astrological border.

Last week’s total solar eclipse was a big gulp of courage. Shots were shot! Bandaids were ripped off! Giant leaps were taken. As the moon waxes to her first quarter phase on the 15th, what was revealed begins to take a shape. But with eclipse season almost in the rearview yet still very much here, exhaustion may win out over cultivation this week. Release the pressure to “do” and focus on awareness. Taurus season begins on the 19th, nudging us to be more grounded and gentle.

There are also more surprises in store this week as expansive Jupiter meets up with innovative Uranus on the 20th for a once-in-14-year conjunction. Pay attention to what’s stirring in your own life, as well as the music and art bursting onto the scene. This isn’t a sudden jolt but a lasting culture shift. The changes happening this week aren’t just for now, but will set the tone for the next decade plus. Is it time to update your mission statement?

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)

What rituals defined your life? It’s likely that the shape of your daily life is now unrecognizable from what it was back then. These changes have been gradual though. Have you taken a step back and given yourself credit for the courage it took to get here? You did all that.

This week’s mantra: Adapt.”
