Weekly Astrology Forecast: April 25 - May 1, 2022

Posted on April 24, 2022

Are you in the mood for transformation, mental stimulation, and plenty of manifestation? Then get ready to go with the flow because the stars are bringing us some pretty big waves this week!

On April 29th, Pluto goes retrograde in the sign of Capricorn, a transit that lasts for about five months and illuminates any issues we have in our habits, patterns, and relationships - especially when it comes to the issue of power. While there may occur an ego struggle or two, Pluto retrograde can be a spiritually rewarding and transformative period.

Mercury is also making moves on the 29th, zipping into one of its home signs, Gemini. Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and the mind is the natural ruler of Gemini, and therefore quite cozy in this placement.

Our minds will be sharper, our conversations faster and more dynamic, and brilliant ideas will be ever-present during this transit! You’re also likely to fly about like a social butterfly during Mercury in Gemini.

Finally, on April 30th, we experience a New Moon and Solar eclipse in the sign of Taurus.

The New Moon is powerful on its own, but when combined with the intense energy of a solar eclipse, you can expect a period of transformation and a fresh start - with a special focus on all things Taurean.

You may feel like shaking things up when it comes to your career, your surroundings, or your routines. This is also an excellent time for manifestation, so be sure to make a list of everything you want to bring into your life this lunar cycle.

Are you ready for the life you’ve always dreamed of? Take hold of your personal power, pay attention to your fresh ideas, and start attracting the things you want most!

If you’re not sure how to start manifesting, a personalized astrological reading can help you learn how to attract your dream life, based on your birth chart.
