A solar eclipse in Aries on April 19 will have lasting effects throughout the week, with the best ones being fresh beginnings.
The Sun then moves into Taurus, and how appropriate that we enter that sign on 4/20 — Taurus being the sign of comfort and luxury … and snacks. Though you’ll find you will also need to stay adaptable and open to the ever-changing astrological weather.
In Taurus, we’ll feel the urge to shift our focus towards material and financial matters. Maybe you grew up a material girl — or, conversely, you learned that would be wrong. Either way, see if you can use this earthly, grounded energy in a practical way to build a solid foundation for your goals.
Even as you do, the road may feel rocky beneath your feet. That’s because on April 21 Mercury enters its second retrograde of the year, which will continue until May 14.
This is sure to cause delays, miscommunications, and misunderstandings. Double-check plans — and your words. Whatever it is that’s in your way, just pass it to the left and don’t overthink it.
