Your Weekly Horoscopes: April 3 to 9, 2022

Mercury enters Aries on the 27th where the communication planet spares no one’s feelings, prioritizing candor and sharp opinions. It was Shakespeare (who was born with Mercury in Aries) who wrote, “This above all: to thine own self be true,” and we can expect everyone to be speaking their mind. Get ready for the hot takes!

Then on the 28th, Venus meets up with Saturn. This is an aspect of commitment and mature relationship decisions which also brings Venus’ long entrapment between bad boys Mars and Saturn to an end. From here on out, all things love, money and beauty come with less effort. Phew! To end the week, there’s a new moon in Aries on the 1st. New moons are for setting goals and planting seeds and this one comes with a moment of mental clarity as Mercury meets the sun on the 2nd.

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

12 aries

Though you’re very proud of what you’ve accomplished so far this year—despite all odds!—you’re also feeling a lack of support from your community. As Mars clashes with Saturn on the 4th, you’re left with extreme disappointment toward some coworkers or teammates who fail to show up. Venus’ shift into Pisces on the 5th is your signal to take a break from group projects to rest and revitalize your spirit. There’s a lot of joy to be found in your own wandering imagination.

This week’s mantra: “Alone doesn’t have to be lonely.”

1 taurus

Whether you’re applying for jobs, building a business or dealing with difficult parents at your kid’s school, you’ve been feeling invisible. No matter how hard you push, your efforts go unrecognized. Though the frustration peaks as Mars clashes with Saturn on the 4th, your ruling planet Venus’ shift into Pisces on the 5th gives you a new lease on life. You deserve happiness and ease, and the friends, coworkers and communities that are going to help you achieve that are now emerging.

This week’s mantra: “I deserve to be heard.”

2 gemini

Travel or education plans that you’ve been looking forward to all year get derailed as Mars clashes with Saturn on the 4th. Whether your flight was booked for the wrong date, your Airbnb was canceled at the last minute or you registered for the wrong class section…in a way, you felt this coming. But you weren’t expecting such a spectacular fail. All hope is not lost though. Your ability to keep your cool (and your sense of humor) is a huge asset as you dive into problem solving mode.

This week’s mantra: “How can I fix this?”

3 cancer

Whether your husband is taking a pay cut, your business partner is reducing her hours or your work wife is going on maternity leave, you’re feeling an extra burden in your shared responsibilities this week. Despite these difficulties, you’re also inspired to get back to planning your next adventure. What travel or education goals are you ready to conquer this spring? As Mercury connects with Saturn on the 7th, release any lingering confusion or resentment so you can focus on the big picture.

This week’s mantra: “I’m not defined by what is thrust upon me.”

4 leo

The clash of aggressive Mars and restrictive Saturn on the 4th puts pressure on your most important relationships. Something has been left unsaid and it’s time to get it off your chest. On the one hand, your sturdiest partnerships are fit to weather this storm, and you might even find joy in the delicate art of negotiation. But for the contracts that leave you feeling drained or out of balance, this confrontation might be the final straw. With Venus moving into exalted Pisces on the 5th, it’s time to choose what elevates you.

This week’s mantra: “If it doesn’t lift me, I don’t want it.”

5 virgo

Between renewing your passport, shuttling the kids to soccer practice and planning your sister’s bachelorette weekend, your responsibilities keep piling up this week. So much so that the overwhelm leads you to do something you rarely do: completely forget a commitment! Luckily Venus’ shift into Pisces on the 5th puts everyone around you in a forgiving mood and the blunder is quickly forgotten. Your load is heavy, but you have plenty of support to carry you through!

This week’s mantra: “I too make mistakes.”

6 libra

Though the week begins with a disappointing financial or professional roadblock, as soon as your ruling planet Venus moves into Pisces on the 5th, you’re able to pick yourself up and try again. After months of frustrations and setbacks, you’re ready to return to healthier routines, like running, taking your vitamins and logging off social media. Intimate conversations with friends and lovers reveal your most tender thoughts and desires. Don’t shy away from the things that you really want.

This week’s mantra: “I choose gratitude.”

7 scorpio

Rebuilding a close relationship with your family has been one of your greatest accomplishments over the last year, but as Mars clashes with Saturn on the 4th, you might feel like some of the progress has been undone. Yes, you’re taking a few steps back, but that doesn’t erase how far you’ve come. Venus’s shift into Pisces on the 5th is your cue to take a breather and enjoy some romance or relax into your hobbies. You don’t always have to be working things out.

This week’s mantra: “I deserve a strong foundation.”

8 sagittarius

Your week begins with a communication breakdown as Mars clashes with Saturn on the 4th. An important email never sent, the materials for a big meeting never printed, and you totally missed that text from your sister about her devastating breakup. Mercury connects with Mars and Saturn on the 7th and 8th allowing you to clean up the mess graciously and laugh things off together. Remember that even the most frustrating situations always pass.

This week’s mantra: “When things get rough, I keep my cool.”


Though your social life is finally back in gear this spring, you’re feeling stressed by how much money you’re spending to keep up with all your friends. So much so that you’re starting to feel resentment toward everyone inviting you to all those dinners, baby showers and weekend trips. This peaks on the 4th as Mars clashes with Saturn and you snap at a coworker who’s just innocently asking if you want to splurge on a fancy lunch. Take a breath, apologize and consider if more cash on hand is worth the FOMO.

This week’s mantra: “I choose my spending wisely.”

10 aquarius

As bad boy planets Mars and Saturn collide in your sign on the 4th, you’re feeling extra pressure to do it all, to be everything to everyone. Though it might be true that only you can take on this particular challenge, it’s also necessary to take a step back and consider the sacrifices you’ve made in regards to your own mental and physical wellbeing. Abundance is flowing toward you like never before so give some of that generosity to yourself.

This week’s mantra: “First, I take care of myself.”

11 pisces

The mental anguish you’ve been experiencing over a tough decision peaks on the 4th. It can be super disappointing to hear “no” when there’s something you really want, but often that rejection reveals the path worth taking. To help ease the pain, Venus glides into your sign on the 5th boosting your confidence and upping your beauty game. As you let go of the things you can’t control, take more ownership of the things you can like your style, fitness and health!

This week’s mantra: “I release what isn’t meant for me.”
