Weekly Astrology Forecast: April 18 - 24, 2022

Have you been looking for both the inspiration and the motivation to make a change? Then it’s time to get excited! This week’s astrological transits bring the opportunity to let go, start over, and enjoy a steady boost of energy.

Aside from plenty of pleasant minor transits, the first important transit this week occurs, marking the beginning of grounded, sensual, Taurus season. While Aries season was full of impulsivity and passion, Taurus season is a time to connect with Mother Nature, your senses, and your goals.

And although there is a sense of amplified drive during Earthy Taurus season, the cool and steady nature of the bull helps you approach your goals - even the difficult ones - with a calm, collected attitude.

It’s a great time to focus on tasks that previously caused frustration, as you’ll feel poised and prepared now.

Following the beginning of a new astrological season is a lunar transit that prepares us for the end of another lunar cycle. On April 23rd, the Last Quarter Moon in the sign of Aquarius marks both completion and transition, giving you time to close any chapters of this lunar cycle’s book before we begin writing a new one.

When the Last Quarter Moon occurs in Aquarius, it takes on the themes of the sign: Futuristic ideas, innovation, an attraction to new technologies, and a humanitarian spirit.

What does this mean for this lunar phase, heavily associated with manifestation?

Aquarius urges you to think of your ideal future, and the Last Quarter Moon provides the opportunity to let go of the habits, situations, or relationships that might be holding you back from that dream future.

April 18th – April 24th is a Great Time to Ground Yourself, Release, & Prepare

Taurus gives you the rooted energy you need to ground yourself, while the Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius urges you to evaluate and release anything that may be holding you back now.

It’s time to start thinking about what you want to manifest during the upcoming lunar cycle and letting go of anything that might stand in the way of those goals.

Do thoughts of the future feel overwhelming or anxiety-inducing now? It’s always wonderful to ground yourself in the present moment, but imagining your ideal future is the best way to begin attracting it into your life.

If you’re attached to the past, a personalized astrological reading can help you learn how to move into the present and imagine the future, based on your birth chart.
