Your Weekly Horoscopes: April 4 to 10, 2021
How are we all feeling after last week’s season finale of a full moon? A lot of us are walking away from something—whether that’s a draining group chat with ex-coworkers, a demanding mother-in-law or a dead-end situationship. As the moon wanes this week, we have a chance to re-center and gain stability. Self-sabotage is possible on the 9th when aggressive Mars squares off with hazy Neptune, raising suspicions and making us want to rush into something just to scratch the itch. Slow mornings, grounding meals and hydration are strongly advised.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
This week’s centering energy helps you wrap up projects at work that you’ve been avoiding for the last few weeks. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to have any difficult one-on-one interactions Instead, rely on group efforts solve any communication problems. (Why should it be completely on you figure out your coop’s recycling schedule?) Stress peaks on the 9th as you try to integrate all the new systems, but the struggle is worth it. Now’s the time to get on the same page.
This week’s mantra: Work together.
Things you usually keep to yourself—that’s both your secret recipe for the most buttery, flaky pie crust and your unheralded Excel skills—get you some attention this week. On the 6th, your freelancer BFF comes to you in a panic over her failure to itemize expenses and you happily come to the rescue. Then on the 10th, another friend is wowed when you bake up a dream blueberry pie for her birthday party in the park. Let this be a lesson to you about not keeping so many of your talents under wraps. You have a lot to share with the world.
This week’s mantra: Share your gifts.
You said something awkward on the all-staff Zoom that you regret, and now you’re desperate to rectify the situation. Do you really think everyone’s judging you or are you stressing yourself out for no reason? Avoid sending any apologies or clarifications on the 9th when aggressive Mars (still in your sign) squares off with confusing Neptune making communication even more muddled. Trust that by next week, your faux pas will be a thing of the past.
This week’s mantra: Less is more.
Aries season has been full of revelatory moments for you, so don’t be thrown off when this week feels more low-key than what’s preceded it. In fact, now that things have settled down, you’re able to easily work out a contract with a new client or a tricky inheritance situation with your family—especially on the 10th. Usually, this kind of thing would burn you out, but you handle it with ease and grace. Who knew you could get through all that admin without breaking a sweat?
This week’s mantra: Let the calm wash over you.
Remember that casual but super cool newsletter you started around this time last year? What happened to that? This week’s slow, grounded energy has you wanting to get back into a writing project and also back in touch with your audience! Even if your best friend and your ex-boyfriend’s sister were your only loyal subscribers, they still got a lot out of what you had to share. Don’t get too wrapped up in making it perfect. Just put it out there!
This week’s mantra: Thoughts are meant to be shared.
Though it’s a relief to tap into some grounded energy this week, too much free time also has you wandering into the dark corners of your mind. With your ruling planet Mercury traveling through your spooky eighth house of death, loss and (scariest of all) taxes, you’re letting your anxieties run your life. On the 10th though, your intensity pays off when you score a new client who’s as obsessed with details as you are. Don’t you love it when your flaws turn out to be your strengths?
This week’s mantra: Stop judging yourself.
Between coworker drama and endless errands, you’ve had a hard time settling into a routine. But this week, you have the opportunity to make strides on a major project like a home renovation or grad school application. It’s like all the pieces are finally falling into place. Your contractor is picking up the phone! Recommendation letters are coming through! Set aside both the 6th and the 10th to get your plans in order.
This week’s mantra: Let the great work begin.
During last week’s full moon, you were able to step away and put a frustrating dynamic into perspective. This week though you’re tempted to throw yourself back into the fray—especially if this is a romantic entanglement—as Mars squares off with idealistic Neptune on the 9th. Thankfully working on a home improvement project or catching up with an old friend keeps your mind and heart busy without the drama. Focus on finishing something rather than starting the cycle all over again.
This week’s mantra: What’s past is past.
You’re an adventurer at heart, so you’ve always known that the world is your oyster. This year though, you’ve gotten the chance to experience the richness of your own neighborhood and close community. On the 10th, your afternoon errands are transformed into a day of sweet surprises. An oat milk cappuccino on the house at the coffee shop? Free samples at the grocery store? A sale at your favorite boutique? Don’t take the good vibes for granted!
This week’s mantra: Too blessed to be stressed.
Last week’s full moon humbled you. A dream you thought was in reach turned out to be more than you can chew. This week gives you an opportunity to regroup, starting with self-care. Turn your camera off during the Zoom staff meeting and use your jade roller to your heart’s content. On the 10th, your spirits really pick up when all of your careful consideration pays off and you get an amazing deal on your lease or home office renovation.
This week’s mantra: Details do matter.
At the top of the week, the moon is in Capricorn and your unconscious sector meaning that it’s time to take a well-earned break. Some slow mornings and stream-of-consciousness journaling inspire you to take a quick trip out of town on the 10th. Yes, it’s just a 45-minute drive out of the city but with how much your head clears, it feels like you’ve gone halfway around the world. Take a long walk and enjoy the fresh scenery.
This week’s mantra: A clear mind makes clear decisions.
Last week’s full moon brought some skeletons out of your financial closet and now you have two choices: You can spend the week trying to shove them back into a dusty corner of your mind or you can just address them. On the 10th, a friend gets in touch out of the blue and recommends an accountant or a 0 percent interest credit card that changed her life. So why can’t it change yours? It’s time to tie up the loose ends.
This week’s mantra: Hiding won’t do you any good.
