Your Horoscope: Friday, April 23, 2009 – Sunday, April 26, 2009
Planetary Outlook: Friday, April 24, 2009 – Sunday, April 26, 2009: Friday will be full of enough surprises, calamities, and hang-ups, which will cause everyone to simply do what they can to make it through the day. Fortunately we’ll be rewarded with excitement and new energy this weekend. Venus enters Aries on Monday, marking a new cycle when it comes to both matters of the heart and financial issues.

Friday afternoon is the perfect time to just relax; if you are inclined toward meditation this is the perfect time to indulge yourself. Frustration and hang-ups abound until 7:00 p.m., when the moon enters Taurus, bringing money, values, and practical goals to the forefront.
