Your weekly horoscope for April 22-28, 2024

Here's what's in store for your zodiac sign this week.

This week’s sun is in sensual Taurus, the full moon in simmering Scorpio, and best news of all, communicator Mercury springs forward again out of retrograde in the enthusiastic, let’s-do-it sign of inspired ideas. Here’s your weekly horoscope April 22-28, 2024.

Taurus, Apr 20 – May 20

Happy birthday Taurus, as the sun joins genial Jupiter for its final month in your sign. Yes, Uranus, that agent of disarray, is also in Taurus dismantling whatever isn’t working to make room for what might be a better fit for current conditions, so get busy making practical magic.

Gemini, May 21 – Jun 20

If your mojo’s been in slow-mo during Mercury’s reversal, the silicate planet’s forward move powers this week to get stuff done. Doors open, people smile more, your ideas are met with a warmer reception, and you can have a conversation without causing offence by not knowing someone’s preferred pronoun.

Cancer, Jun 21 – Jul 22

The sign of Cancer is ruled by the moon, and when April’s forensic full moon shines her midweek high beams of mystery and intrigue, you can decide to be either furious or curious. Frightened or excited. Confused or enthused. Reactive or proactive. As always, the choice is yours.

Leo, Jul 23 – Aug 22

You’re entitled to your strong beliefs, but the world at large isn’t under any obligation to agree with them. With four planets in fixed signs like your own, this week’s mantra is Stay Flexible. Afford others the respect that you would want for yourself, even if you think it’s undeserved.

Virgo, Aug 23 – Sep 22

This week’s powerful full moon comes with the potential for deep healing, so devote some time, as much as possible, even the whole week, to acknowledging yourself for all your hard work, dedication to duty, practical savvy and whatever other sterling Virgo virtues may be relevant.

Libra, Sep 23 – Oct 22

Your celestial muse Venus, the pleasure planet, is particularly drawn during the next few weeks to indulging her appetite for earthly delights, never mind the consequences. Which do have a pesky way of showing up however, so try to balance your love of beautiful things with sensible spending.

Scorpio, Oct 23 – Nov 21

This week’s full moon in Scorpio, also known as a blood moon, is a profoundly healing time to schedule deep and meaningful conversations with nearest and dearest.  Plus it’s Scorpio’s personal annual date to celebrate your loyal spirit, your sexy self, your evolving life path.

Sagittarius, Nov 22 – Dec 21

As this week’s energetics shift from simmering fire to a cooler earth element and Mercury turns forward again, it’s time to move past offended feelings and take advantage of the increasing celestial support for getting those wild ideas and passionate sparks into some sort of productive form.

Best day:   Saturday 27 April

Capricorn, Dec 22 – Jan 19

Whether your love language is messages or spoken words of appreciation, acts of service, special gifts or quality time, this week’s annual full moon in the sign of loyalty is for honouring your support group: those people in your personal world – partnership, platonic and professional – who always have your back.

Aquarius, Jan 20 – Feb 18

The majority of planets are currently in fixed signs like Aquarius, but having too fixed a vision of how you want things to work out isn’t recommended this week. Your guiding planet Uranus the Changemaker is busy disrupting business as usual, so stay tuned for its flashes of fantastic inspiration.

Pisces, Feb 18 – Mar 20

In the physical body, Saturn rules the skeletal structure which holds and protects our soft, pliable organs, allowing them to move freely. Similarly, the principles, practices, rules and routines of Saturn in your sign are a guiding key to managing this week’s random surprises and unexpected news.

Aries, Mar 21 – Apr 19

Now the hearty partying’s done, astral energy in your sector of worldly affairs says it’s time to assess your financial trajectory: Is it heading in a direction you’re happy with? If not, let clever Mercury in your sign direct you to who, where and what will provide the best advice.
