Horoscope for the week of 4.9 - 4.15 || new moon with a side of shadow work

Greetings all! Even though last week had significantly less planetary activity than we've been getting lately, it was still rather sobering and quite uncomfortable. If you felt that way, you are not alone- in my life and the lives of those around me it was pretty much across the board. I definitely abide by a spiritual Source, which makes things easier. I was just talking to my friend about how it is so much easier to do life when you imagine that this life is a part of your soul's journey and literally everything that you encounter is a part of your soul's growth- almost like a game. Yesterday, a wise woman I know reminded me that during tougher times, you can ask, "what am I learning?"

We begin the week on Monday with a lot of fixed energy as the moon moves into Aquarius. We also have Venus in Taurus, Jupiter in Scorpio and the North Node in Leo, making for a wide grand square. Be mindful of stubbornness during this time- fixed energy causes us to want things how we want them and can make us less adaptable. As a person with some control issues, I love to release control and my will over to Source, and that way I will encounter exactly the situations I need to. Flexibility and adaptability will serve us well on Monday. The moon in Aquarius gives us a good sense of humor as well as a very objective viewpoint from which to view the day, which is our release valve. There may be some obstacle and some tension in the world today- remember that what you can "control" is you.
