Welcome to your astrology forecast for the week of April 6-12, beautiful souls!

Heads up, last week was slow but this week could spell love for many of us and we will see people making bold public statements because of what is happening with Mercury, the communication planet. One of the big events this week will already be in effect on Monday with the actual event happening Tuesday, April 7. This is a Full Moon in the Air sign of Libra bringing our wishes to fruition and helping us release the energetic sludge in our subconscious. Libra is ruled by Venus, making this a lunation that can bring some love and romance into our lives. That same day we have three aspects that will make it a day of heightened energy.

One of the more subtle effects coming into play this week to be aware of starts on Thursday April 9 when Venus enters the pre-shadow of it’s retrograde (the official retrograde doesn’t start until May 13).

April 11 Mercury enters the Fire sign of Aries which can make us feel more confident saying how we really feel. However, be advised that it can also make you a bit of a hothead (especially since the Sun is in Aries) so be extra careful not to react without thinking and if you’re worked up, take a few breaths before speaking. You can use this time to ask for that raise, ask your crush out, or just share your ideas in a more bold way.

Ultimately, this week’s astrology overview is colored by a desire for romance and repairing relations, strong energy to get things done, and the confidence to say what we want.
