Your weekly horoscope: April 14 to 20 2019
What do the stars hold in store for you?
21 March – 19 April
Friday's calming full moon offers a heaven-sent opportunity to re-examine the finances. Dull, yes, but essential if you wish to remain solvent. Take a careful look at your debts, and make plans to decrease your liabilities. Now's your chance to rid yourself of anything - or anyone - that is costing more than you're willing to spend. There. Looking better? Now go out for lunch.
20 April – 20 May
Friday's full moon is asking you to resolve all those ridiculous conflicts at work. Yes, that does mean telling the absolute truth and maybe confessing to the odd personal vulnerability. But that's not really an issue so don't make it one. What's important is that you fix the relationships you've messed up over the past few weeks. Try apologising for a start, even if it's not your fault.
21 May – 20 June
There's nothing wrong with making demands. But assertiveness can sometimes come with a price; the possibility of rejection. Which means there are times when you'll just have to take "no" for an answer. Not to worry. The social life is entertaining enough to gloss over the glitches. For those tenser moments, get a massage. Every day, if you like. And keep a notebook by your bed - for those moments of inspiration.
21 June – 22 July
Your energies are fragile, and can easily be led astray. So for this week only, allow yourself just the safest and smallest of risks, setting yourself limits of time and investment. In your spare moments, look out for a new love interest - or the resurrection of a current one. And find the courage to make it happen. By the time the weekend comes round, you'll be in a much better mood.
23 July – 22 August
If you're looking for a job, try after Friday, when the cycles will have shifted. Meanwhile, it's charm school for you. Somehow the energies seem to have turned on you, holding you back in favour of lesser mortals. No panic. The plan is to tame that insane jealousy and giant ego you're carrying. Don't argue. And when you've accepted that everyone can have good fortune, you'll get some too.
23 August – 22 September
Your partner or lover could find work elsewhere, forcing you to make a commitment one way or the other. Obviously, you'll need to spend some time alone, examining your needs and wishes. Try not to talk to anyone first. Just ask yourself what you want for you. If there are no actual moves involved, the changes will still be significant enough to demand attention. Friday's full moon will show some unexpected options.
23 September – 22 October
Your luck is back in spades, especially after Friday. The planets are throwing money at you, while family and friends offer unexpected support. Be pleased and then use some of your new-found wealth to get a hairdo. Or an outfit. Love is lurking, but not yet ready to knock on the door. Expend energy making yourself even more loveable, just in case. Then get out there.
23 October – 21 November
Ask yourself: what return are you getting on your investments? Investments on your time, your skills, and your faith in yourself? If the answer is anything less than spectacular, ask for more. And do it now. Also, try to learn a bit more about the money markets. You'll be happier when you can manage on your own. And the rules are changing all the time. Ask for help and trust them.
22 November – 21 December
The universe is taking care of emotional lunacies. You get to have fun and relax. Create anything you like. Happiness is a choice which has nothing to do with the outside world. You've had a few dips recently but, as of now, you're back in full swing. Job changes are still on the cards, but you'll have loads of time to make new plans. And love is much more about wild entertainment than serious commitment.
22 December – 19 January
That contract or deal you were hoping to win may need a few more tweaks to get it right. And those tweaks have to come from you. You know how stubborn you can be, digging in your heels about minor details just to prove a point. In this case, focus on winning the war - and letting them notch up a few battles. Look out for some new friends. They'll bring a change of perspective.
20 January – 18 February
Friday's full moon has decided to make a pizza out of your love life. But only if you let it. So don't let it. Instead, use the planetary shifts to try another way, preferably a new one. While you're mulling over that, how about a weekend away? The verbiage in your head is too confusing to be of any use. Take a break. Take someone with you to talk you out of your madness.
19 February – 20 March
Relationships are high on your priority list as you're manoeuvred into making some serious personal choices. If you're looking for reasons to duck, better find out quickly what's behind your hesitation. Are your fantasies not matching up to the real thing? Or is it just fear of pain that's holding you back? Whatever the problem, it's yours - not theirs. Figure out ways to feel more independent, and then think again.
