ARIES AND ARIES RISING
Take note of new insights or information in the first half of the week, especially anything to do with your cash flow. Finances in general will be a big focus in April and May, and the seeds sown this week will shape the next two months. The full moon (April 5 AEST, April 6 GMT) looks extra juicy for reconnecting with your main squeeze. Treat yourself to a little mid-week luxury.
TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING
An intriguing power dynamic at work could set the scene for you to renegotiate your position in the weeks to come. Watch what happens and resist the urge to make any sudden moves. While the shock of something may tempt you to act, this is a long game. On Wednesday cancel plans and embrace JOMO.
GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING
Pay attention to unusual symbols and messages particularly anything surfacing in your dreams or daydreams early in the week. They could unlock the key to a larger storyline playing out over the coming months. Mid-week the skies look glorious for letting your hair down with friends. Find people who make you feel spontaneous and let loose.
CANCER AND CANCER RISING
Tension between your work and your home life reaches a crescendo mid-week when the full moon invites you to find a middle ground between what you want, and compromising for the sake of keeping things polite. If you find yourself at a crossroads, check in with what feels right (or wrong as the case may be) on a physical level. Your body holds the key to your intuition.
LEO AND LEO RISING
Get ready to flex your detective muscles! Some juicy new detail, especially from (or about) your employer could transform the rules of engagement. Stay eagle-eyed and expect this to be the beginning of a longer and more complex plot that it may seem at first. The aftershocks will be felt for weeks to come,
VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING
Seeking a second opinion be a very wise move mid-week when the full moon casts a light on your financial situation. “Mine vs ours” will be a major theme as you’re challenged to walk the line between sharing and surrendering. Getting a second (objective) opinion could help make sense of messy scenarios.
LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING
If you only do one thing this week, make sure you prioritise quality time with the person who makes you feel your most confident, playful self. With the full moon (April 5 AEST, April 6 GMT) giving you a little extra swagger, it’s the right time to slip on some heels and do and remember what it feels like to do something spur-of-the-moment.
SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING
Lean in to that famous Scorpio scrutiny early in the week when an unexpected development or intriguing admission sets the cat amongst the pigeons. It won’t necessarily be shouted from the rooftops, in fact, it may take some extra careful listening on your part, but the ramifications will make it well worth the trouble.
SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING
Sharing is caring this week! The full moon mid-week is made for prioritising play, creativity and collaboration. Reach for a bottle you’ve been saving for a special occasion and pop it with friends who make you feel brave enough to show your wild side. Life’s too short to drink bad bubbles.
CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING
Coming back to your body will be key to staying grounded this week as the skies keep you running from one thing to the next. The full moon ((April 5 AEST, April 6 GMT) challenges you to strike a balance between work and home. Uncomfortable as it may be, leaning into your feelings and instinct (rather than your head) will help you find your way.
AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING
How are your active listening skills? This week, they’ll be put to the test when your family (or flatmates) get uncharacteristically candid. Your greatest challenge will be to try and just take it all in, rather than jump ahead to how you can fix things. This won’t be sorted out overnight so give yourself time to digest.
PISCES AND PISCES RISING
How’s your budget going? Whether you’re kicking your savings goals or too scared to check NetBank, this week’s full moon will force you to look at your financial position. Finding a happy medium between what you want, and what your nearest and dearest want to spend – or save – on may be tricky but it is possible.
