Here's what you need to know for this week's horoscope, April 16th-20th, 2018
Have no fear, your weekly horoscope is here. It's a final week with the Sun in Aries and Uranus is preparing to leave Aries for a Taurus season in May.
Swift changes are up ahead and it's all good... depending on your perspective. Aries is a positive force of energy so why not embrace the positive, too. Yippee!
And, although Monday is almost said and done, there's still so much to know about the rest of this week. There's great news for us all, and all the lamenting Capricorns who have said, can life give me a break these days?

We have Saturn going retrograde to help lighten the energetic load. (Not to mention that Uranus will soon be going Void of Course to prepare for its movement into Taurus this May.)
Did you know that on Sunday, Mercury went direct? Yep, no more Mercury retrograde for a little while, but hold on to your hat, Saturn is going retrograde tomorrow.
Old man Saturn, as I like to call him, is a strong planet that represents karmic energy. This planet moves much more slowly than the rest. With all it's circles of crystal surrounding it, it is the image of our energy that circulates around in our lives.
When you plot or plan, think of scheming, it's a lovely reminder that your actions reflect back to you your consequences. If you do good, sometimes you get good back in return. If you don't we want to believe that there's a consequence.
The most complicated reality in life isn't so much that we want these things to take place in our lives, and the world around us. What is so hard to comprehend is when this DOESN'T happen. Why is it that evil sometimes gets away without its consequence, you ask the universe?
And why do you have to work so hard to get something good for an honorable reason, and yet, you have to wait, and wait.. oh Saturn, if you're going to reverse something... reverse the order of the world!
When Saturn, grandfather of time in astrology hits retrograde season, it's a search for answers.
In some respect, similar to Mercury retrograde, you are invited to double check yourself, but this time, instead of focusing on communication which involves the 3rd House, it's a glance at all things related to the 10th, 11th, and even the 7th House in astrology:
10th House involves your career.
Are you working in line with your life's purpose? If not, it's a time to seek your way back home in some way, shape or form. Maybe you always wanted to do art, but now you're an accountant. How can you add creativity to your life?
11th House involves your friendships.
Are you hanging out with the right people? If not, how do you make some new friends? Maybe networking or putting yourself out there will be good for you.
7th House involves your love life and partnerships.
How's that going for you? This is a time to improve. Saturn is in Capricorn, so that may mean you have to do some work on yourself, start something over again, hit the restart button....however it translates, deep down inside you know what it means. We are in building mode and retrograde season means to look back.
Saturn in retrograde is blamed for all types of quirky things: dreams, symbolism, and sometimes the delay of what you think you need and want but really what's not so great for you, so you will grow and improve without realizing it.
Here's to karma! To get you in the spirit of the new Sun in Taurus season with a Saturn retrograde, here's what's happening this week with a song about time for each of the 12 zodiac signs in astrology!
The Sun is in Aries until this Friday then it moves into the 2nd House with the zodiac sign, Taurus.
Where Aries spends, Taurus saves. When Aries gets bored and quits, Taurus bucks down for the long haul with determination. It's the thick skin of the bull we need this month. We are literally finishing up with tax season, so if you're fortunate enough to get a tax return, this is a time for investing wisely.
Or, if you're preparing to do something major this summer like start a new job or look for a summer program to put the kids in, or go back to school in the Fall, take a hint from the 2nd House, attached to the good things in life but willing to work hard to get them.
Mercury and Venus are in the 2nd House of Taurus:
We like this... truly. Venus is in Taurus too, and if you've grown tired of forthright and overly direct, tones can drop to sweetness and kindness, and all things love like. Where Mercury likes to move fast on its own, in Taurus it does take it's time a bit.
What does Mercury want to talk about right now? Money! Not just the lack of it, but the saving and investing of it. Buy a home? Selling things? Want to figure out how to be smarter this time around so you're stronger at the end of 2018 with a wallet full of some cash, this there's no time like the present. Who knows? Maybe Uncle Sam was a Taurus back in the day!
Jupiter is retrograde in Scorpio until July 10th:
When Jupiter goes retrograde because it's a benevolent planet, it's not anything crazy so don't worry. But you can cool your jets right now. Take your time to get comfortable in the things that you're interested in. See growth as a process more than a flash.

Mars Rx is in Capricorn:
Our intentions are still under review. It's not a bad thing when you really think about it. Let the mind, heart, and soul be in agreement with one another. You'll have less regrets that way!
Saturn goes retrograde until September 6th, 2018:
As shared earlier in this article, it's a time for us to get a bit serious about our situations. If something isn't worth investing your time in, don't do it. Seriously!
Neptune is in Pisces until 2025.
This funny planet has all the right intentions in the world to make our dreams come true. It's good to believe in something greater than ourselves, isn't it?
