Weekly Astrology Forecast: April 19 - 25, 2021
Do you need a calming break from the intensity of Aries season? If so, you’re in luck, because Taurus is swooping in to bring us the collective relief we crave. While all that inspiring energy was certainly motivating, it can also feel just a little bit too warm at times.
Thankfully, Taurus is here to bring that steady and grounded energy that many of us are craving right now. While we won’t experience many transits this week, the ones floating our way are healing indeed.
Starting on April 19th, we’ve got two major transits taking place.
First, the Sun is entering Taurus, marking a new astrological season. Taurus season is a time of sensory pleasures, a connection with Mother Nature, and a grounded, determined spirit that helps us get just about anything done.
Additionally, on this day Mercury is also entering Taurus, giving us even more of that steadfast, calming energy that Taurus is known for. When Mercury – the planet of communication and information – enters this sensual sign, you can expect your conversations to take on a more visceral and genuine tone.
Taurus is all about being real.
Finally, on April 23rd, assertive, motivating Mars is entering intuitive, sensitive Cancer. You may feel even more protective of your loved ones than usual or even protective of your own energy. If you feel you’ve been slighted, you might also grow moody. But this transit can also bring great insight and intuition to your actions, so this is a good time to trust your gut.
April 19 – April 25 is a Week to Sink Into the Good Vibrations
While Taurus is determined, it’s one of the more laid-back signs in astrology; Taurus wants to play just as hard as they work. This means that you’re going to need to set some time aside to enjoy yourself, or you may risk emotional exhaustion or burnout.
Grant yourself the permission to relax.
We know you want to get things done and make them happen, but it’s going to feel nearly impossible if you have no energy. Energy comes from rest and relaxation, meaning that – whether you like it or not – you’re going to have to let yourself get some solid relaxation in this week, for both the body and the mind.
If you’re having a hard time allowing yourself the permission to read, a personalized astrological reading can help you find the cues you need to trust your gut.
