You’ve never been afraid to ruffle a feather or two, Aries. But when cautious, conservative Saturn turns retrograde this Thursday, April 6 you might want to tone down some of your bluster. Anything you say, write or tweet could be misconstrued. Just give yourself time to reflect and review where you stand on issues. As frustrating as it can e to fine-FINE tune, you’ll emerge unshakeable by August 25!
By now, you’ve probably learned a few tough lessons about not getting your name mixed up with the wrong people. Give your contact database yet another discerning review. When it comes to assessing new endeavours, have zero tolerance for anything that is sneaky or “flexible”. Saturn’s reversal can also stir up obsessive or jealous behaviour. On a positive note, this Saturn cycle lends a hand in creating committed relationships, allowing you to dive deeper with the one you adore.
Relationship redux time? Partnerships don't "just happen," Gemini—even the most cosmic connections require care and feeding. Everywhere you turn, a mirror is being held up. You just can't skate by on your usual charm! But Saturn (AKA the personal trainer planet) is "cruel" to be kind. Dating? Someone you wrote off as boring could suddenly show glimmers of potential. This is worth exploring, albeit slowly because obviously, chemistry is as important as security.
Roll up your sleeves, Cancer. You're closer than you realize to creating a life on YOUR terms. All kinds of self-care are recommended during Saturn's backspin, as well as cutting back on stress-inducing activities that can exacerbate pain or lethargy. Doing less for others may be the sacrifice you have to make for the next five months. But think of it this way: When August 25 comes 'round and you're in fighting shape and flush with resources, you'll have so much more to share with the ones you love!
Sequined statement sleeves or a sensible white tee? For the coming five months, you may be reaching for the latter more often than your flamboyant nature would predict. On many days, you'll prefer to fly under the radar and even let other strong personalities take the lead. But please don't disappear, Leo! Pour your energy into people who are stable, healthy and have your back. Although romantic interludes could feel heavy between now and August 25—and you may struggle with commitment issues—this is no time to bolt. Hit pause and use this as an opportunity to reconnect to your own creativity, passions and greatness.
Home is where you hang your hat, Virgo. But it also needs to feel like a haven from the increasingly insane world. Does your space suit your current life interests? Your inner circle may shrink now—which would not be a bad thing. Nurture the relationships that feed you back, Virgo, even if that means focusing on two or three key people. That said, the ties the bind should not cut off your circulation. Is your sense of duty getting confused with unhealthy co dependence? Instead of enabling relatives to lean on you, find constructive ways to empower them to act for themselves.
Quality always rules over quantity in the Libra realm—your finely-tuned sensibilities just call for discernment! But you're also a social butterfly. With your desire to see the best in people, time to review that friend list, Libra! A friend breakup might be in the cards, especially if you've been hurt and disappointed repeatedly. Stop being so darn polite and have the keep-it-real conversation you've been putting off. When you are with your squad, make a point of actively listening and engaging with their lives. Give them priority treatment.
How low is your flow? Even if you're flush with cash – you'll want to make every penny count—and grow! You're a shrewd money manager once you learn the basics. But don't cinch that belt so tight that you cut off circulation. That will just cause a rebellious binge. As for your love life, has your busy schedule been a romance crusher lately? Realize the importance of letting love in. The errands can wait, Scorpio! First, how about a brunch date—and maybe an afternoon delight.
Slow your roll and take excellent care of yourself. If not, your energy levels could dip and you may feel scattered in too many exhausting directions. Whittle down your project list and you could end the season with one massively profitable feather in your cap. Before you spring into action, mull over your intentions to make sure they're taking you in the right direction.
An ex might come back into the picture over the next two weeks, flooding you with texts, flowery gestures and seductive offers. You won't be thinking clearly—especially since you did kind of fantasize about this moment happening someday. This old flame's reappearance might simply be a test from the universe. You say you're ready to make better choices, right? Now, how about walking that talk. Keep your firm boundary in place (and fantasize secretly). This too shall pass!
If it's not an old flame who makes a resurgence, it may be someone who bears a striking resemblance, at least in character. Trust your gut and steel your willpower! Intense romance is usually followed by a crash. Give the stable types a chance to win your heart.
Who are these people you call "squad," Aquarius? Having solid community support is like oxygen for you—even if it takes a while for you to really find your tribe. And while you hate to exclude anyone, there can be a downside to having an open-door policy. A group is only as strong as its weakest link. If some people on the team are coasting while others are carrying extra weight, a change is in order. You don't have to kick anyone off the island right away (or hopefully ever). But how about getting the crew together for a brainstorming session? The hive mind can be powerful! Focus on the idealistic and the practical. What are you shared goals—and what is expected of everyone who is participating in the effort?
Two steps forward, one step back? There's nothing inherently wrong with that equation, Pisces. Pausing to review can help you build a strong base for your ascent—and ensure that you don't get so swept away with excitement that you wind up lost at sea. It's time to explore what's most important to YOU. Saturn is the wise teacher planet, so working with a mentor or coach can help you strengthen your aspirations and gain that high-pro glow you need to launch your dreams into the stratosphere. Bring on the midnight oil!
