ZODIAC LOUNGE:<br />
Your Horoscopes this Week 4/14 â 4/20

Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
The Libra full moon is always a big deal for you and much of the world. In fact, Easter generally can’t happen without it. Easter, for most of the world, is always the first Sunday after the first full moon of the spring equinox.  This moon symbolizes a resurrection for the Sun…and you. Although you’ve been attempting to figure out a “new normal” with your ruler, Mars, being in your opposite sign, this could be the time when you’re clearest on how to move forward. Of course, this doesn’t mean everything becomes easier. The opposite could happen. After all, Tuesday is the first of four “blood” moon eclipses that will happen about every six months until September 28, 2015. Those may sound incredibly scary, but they’re really not. Eclipses are like cosmic shots of espresso to reset parts of ourselves. In your case, Aries, this is about getting on track on how to assert yourself, but with more grace.

Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)
The week’s going to start off with lots of changes for you. Pluto starts what appears to be his backward motion in the sky for five months. This retrograde we can say is like a forensic specialist who’s come to dig deep in your life. You may come up with feelings that you didn’t even know you had buried. Likewise, people, like exes, could come up out of the blue to remind of some things that you’d rather forget. Yet they will ultimately be delivering messages of growth and clarity for you.  The other big event to signal change is the first of four “blood” moon eclipses that will happen about every six months until September 28, 2015. Those may sound incredibly scary, but they’re really not. Eclipses are like cosmic shots of espresso to reset parts of ourselves. You’re due for a reset toward increased positivity in your mindset so you can meet changes with your work with more inspiration and cooperation.

Gemini  (May 21st to June 20th)
There’s a lot that could set you off this week, and not necessarily in “good” ways.  Your tolerance for what you might perceive as secret-keeping from others is at an all time low. So if you even get a whiff that someone’s being less than direct with you, you could let him or her have it with both barrels. This hair-trigger sensitivity could be particularly acute on Wednesday when Mercury, your patron planet, has a showdown with Mars then. Of course, there’s always a positive way to honor that energy too. Considering that Mars represents how we take action in our lives, “hump” day could be an awesome time to move forward with your future by putting your hat in the ring for an opportunity. You’re not stuck having to tell off e’rybody and all of ‘em in the process!



Cancer  (June 21st to July 21st)
Hold on to your hat, Cancer, because this week is a lot of a lot.  But thank the heavens that a lot is not too much for you. Fortunately, this all comes in waves. The week kicks off with Pluto starting his backward motion in your opposite sign, Capricorn, from the Earth’s perspective. This moment could dig up old issues for you, including an ex or a few. This isn’t necessarily a cosmic sign that you’re meant to get back together. It’s more likely a sign to see if you got yourself together enough to move on. The next big event to signal change is the first of four “blood” moon eclipses that will happen about every six months until September 28, 2015. Those may sound incredibly scary, but they’re really not. Eclipses are like cosmic shots of espresso to reset parts of ourselves. For you, this is eclipse is still part of the 2014 drive of “Getting up and over!” with your career and to re-root yourself somehow should be a #1 priority.

Leo  (July 22nd to August 21st)
Anything big that happens with the Sun, your patron, is something that has significance for you. This week is the first of four “blood” moon eclipses that will happen about every six months until September 28, 2015. Those may sound incredibly scary, but they’re really not. Eclipses are like cosmic shots of espresso to reset parts of ourselves. There’s no doubt that the resetting that happens here for you is more mental. This doesn’t mean, though, that there’s nothing to do. On the contrary, you will have to be willing to learn more to build up your work skill set AND to round out your general understanding of human nature and knowledge. So now is the start of a good time to reach both for a technical manual AND a good novel or history book.

Virgo (August 22nd to September 21st)
Pluto begins his annual retrograde on Monday, where he appears to be going backwards from the Earth’s perspective for five months. While doing this, Pluto seems to become a cosmic forensic specialist, digging in and around you for clues to motives for crimes you’ve mostly committed against yourself. This may unearth all the ways you’ve committed or experienced some form of injustice against your own pleasure. Committing such acts yourself are easy to do for you, especially since you often work so hard and think more about the practicalities. It’s now time to think a little less about practicality and dig up what you experience as fun for its own sake. This doesn’t have to be at the cost of work, however. Perhaps now you can swing this energy to pick up a project that reminds of you an aspect of your job that you once found the most fun.

Libra (September 22nd to October 21st)
Tuesday’s full moon in your sign is serious business. On a collective level, this week’s full moon is serious because it kicks off the Jewish Passover and there is no Easter Sunday without this first full moon during the spring. So we can say that your sign’s full moon in spring generally signifies achieving liberty after many sacrifices. There’s a similar message on a more personal tip with a twist. Tuesday is the first of four “blood” moon eclipses that will happen about every six months until September 28, 2015. Those may sound incredibly scary, but they’re really not. Eclipses are like cosmic shots of espresso to reset parts of ourselves. This lunar eclipse is a cosmic invitation for you to figure out the right admixture for how you support others without putting only yourself on the altar for sacrifice. Again, this may require you resetting your first impulse to assume the blame or to pick up the slack.

Scorpio (October 22nd to November 21st)
You could have serious trouble biting your tongue now, especially with folks from work or who you encounter regularly, like the postal carrier, for example. One clear astrological reason is from this Tuesday when we have the first of four “blood” moon eclipses due to happen about every six months until September 28, 2015. Those may sound incredibly scary, but they’re really not. Eclipses are like cosmic shots of espresso to reset parts of ourselves.  For you, it’s a wake up call for what’s been happening behind the scenes with people at your job. You probably have been sensing these changes and tensions, but perhaps you couldn’t put your finger on been up. Use the knowledge well and wield your tongue with wisdom. There are still more details and intrigue to emerge.

Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)
All still may not quiet on the social and friendship front this week. The most sensitive times for these disruptions will likely be on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Wednesday, there’s a showdown between communicative Mercury and edgy Mars. So your ability to gladly suffer fools is at an all time low and your likelihood of having a Centaur hoof in mouth moment is at an all time high. So if you don’t want to be in a position to have to play nice when you don’t feel nice, then you’d do better to be alone or be around folks where you can shoot straight. Another longer lasting aspect is the lunar eclipse that happens on Tuesday.  This eclipse is the first of four “blood” moon eclipses due to happen about every six months until September 28, 2015. For you, this first eclipse may reflect a time when you begin to trim and reconstruct who’s in your inner circle.

Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)
Last week, I talked about how you’re cultivating roots. This week, however, you’re more likely to see some aspects of your life uprooted and that may be a very positive thing. This Tuesday is the first of four “blood” moon eclipses that will happen about every six months until September 28, 2015. Those may sound incredibly scary, but they’re really not. Eclipses are like cosmic shots of espresso
