In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Wednesday, April 22, 2009
Planetary Outlook: Wednesday, April 22, 2009: The lunar cycle renews itself this afternoon with the moon’s entry into Aries, which brings a sense of confidence, an exuberant optimism, and an aggressive quality to the day. Everyone is full of energy and motivated to get things done. Collaboration is not highlighted this afternoon as many will be more concerned with their own personal objectives and may not be able to concentrate on joint tasks. Mars enters the sign of its greatest strength, Aries, this afternoon which also energizes and infuses everyone with a renewed sense of ambition and hope. Impatience and aggression can accompany this Mars transit as well, so be aware of this tendency. If you encounter any opposition, it may be best to just not engage in arguments or fights. The moon and Mars pair up in Aries this afternoon, a combustible combination, which can be channeled into either positive or negative directions. On the positive side, there is abundant energy available for all of us to tap into. On the other hand, aggression can result.
Taurus: Today the moon enters Aries and steps up your communications with friends and colleagues. Your mind may be racing with ideas for the future, especially about your career and work. The morning is the best time to accomplish serious creative work, especially when it comes to transforming a near-complete project to improve it. You’ll be pleased with new and exciting concepts that develop as you push the limits of your artistic visions.
Gemini: The moon enters Aries today, making you even more sociable and outgoing than usual. You’ll spend the day chatting with colleagues and friends. A get-together this evening may bring progress on the career front. Mars supercharges your powers of persuasion.
Cancer: Today the moon enters Aries, causing you to worry about some issue pertaining to higher education or travel. This evening, Mars also enters Aries, which could end delays and communication problems that have been plaguing you professionally – but only if you take the initiative. Pay extra attention to make yourself abundantly clear when speaking or writing, especially at work, for the next few weeks.
Leo: You could be dreaming of a voyage to a far-off, distant and exotic locale today. Maybe it is time to make that daydream a reality. Do some research and plan a trip – a vacation may be exactly what the doctor ordered. Mars energizes you this afternoon and enables you to get a lot done in very little time. Reward yourself tonight – have fun with friends or spend time with your family.
Virgo: As a rational Virgo, you pride yourself on your ability to keep your emotions in check. Today, the moon and Mars team up in Aries and bring out some of your inner passion. It may be a good idea to let go and let your emotions take you to new places today – literally or figuratively – despite your penchant for “staying in control.” You’ll be pleasantly surprised by where those emotions end up taking you.
Libra: Librans are happiest when in a partnership; whether in your professional or personal life, having a partner seems to bring out the best in you. Today, the moon and Mars activates your sector or one-on-one relationships, so your attention will be focused on a spouse, lover, or someone special in your life. If you are single, tonight is a great night to socialize; you could meet someone that really catches your eye.
Scorpio: Work, work, and more work is on the agenda for Scorpios today. You’ve been feeling discouraged when it comes to your career lately. Today, with the moon and Mars paired up in Aries, you’ll be able to banish those negative feelings that have been holding you back by simply getting things done. The more you accomplish the better you’ll feel, and pretty soon that discouragement will be a thing of the past.
Sagittarius: The moon and Mars team up in Aries today, and this fiery energy will get you revved up about a new project. Indulge creative inspiration and embark on a new path. You may put in some long hours at work this afternoon, which will not only improve your confidence but also make you feel more fulfilled than you have felt in months.
Capricorn: Capricorns are very principled and responsible individuals. Today, the abundance of Aries energy will prompt you to re-examine your core values and analyze just how well you’ve been living up to them. You may need to make some changes in your life in order to bring yourself into balance with your most important principles.
Aquarius: Today the moon enters Aries and you’ll feel impatient and impulsive, especially about getting on with your work. Take today to recollect and gain some perspective of your overall goals in terms of your career. You realize that you need to tie up some loose ends to have a fresh start next week. Your high-enthusiasm is complemented and balanced by your attention to practical details. Formulate a list of goals for the next few weeks this evening and you’ll end the day with a sense of direction and purpose.
Pisces: Your focus is on money today, especially on how you can increase your income. You may realize that by doing what you love, making money will not seem like such a chore. The moon and Mars in Aries enable you to come up with ideas about how you can improve your financial picture while staying true to your ideals.
Aries: Today is an exuberant and optimistic day. Enjoy your lunar cycle high, which occurs each month when the moon enters your Sun sign, Aries. This marks a time when you’re even more gracious and charismatic than usual. You’ll be full of fiery enthusiasm and energy this morning, so work on a project, especially any collaborative projects. Working with others, especially one-on-one, is especially productive today.
