Star Power: Weekly Astrological Advice For You & Your Favorite Divas–April 14th-April 21st
Have you felt out of breath lately? Enraged? Confused? Ecstatically happy, but totally unstable? Not only is Mercury still retrograde (it feels like it’s always retrograde) but this week transformational Pluto is retrograde in Capricorn, creating mass revolution in governments and sometimes even in the workplace. Basically, wherever there is a leader in place. It’s a good time to keep a cool head, especially with Mars poking aggressively at Pluto from an entirely uncomfortable angle.
Sometimes it’s good to stand up for yourself, but this week, it might not be the best of ideas unless you are fully prepared to deal with the consequences of fondling the sleeping Pluto bear.
Unlike the Mercury retrograde, Pluto retrograde lasts until about September 16. It’s time to break down the facades and really attempt to restructure the miniature governments around you. Just wait until next week, when you have a full scope of what is going on and there isn’t a lot of Aries/Mars tension to actually attempt a peaceful resolution. You might just add more fuel to the fire.
Go forth and read the details on your sun sign! If you know your rising sign, read that too.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)
Try not to burn out this week, Aries. With all the signs in your sign, Mercury in retrograde, Pluto pushing at old battle wounds, it’s basically going to be like an absurd scene in Tim Burton’s Mars Attacks. Everything is going topsy-turvy and your ruling planet (Mars) is making you want to shoot the big guns.
Sometimes ambitious Aries can really irritate the more lackadaisical around them who aren’t used to the stress of motivation. Everyone else is feeling what you feel all the time; step back and let them adjust. Try not to be too vocal about your feelings, push too hard, or piss anyone of importance off.
Remember that to play the game to win, you actually have to play the game. You can’t just burn the board and magically get to the finish line with your piece intact.
While not being totally proactive in your career might sound like an Aries burn, the full moon in Libra on Sunday will provide the perfect opportunity for a beautiful friendship to reach the full bloom of romance. Just don’t blow it by trying to be too much a control freak.
