Monday and Tuesday see the North node in its last week in Virgo, squaring Venus in Aries. The suggestion here is that more mundane matters could have an impact on our romantic hopes. With the Sun also squaring to the Moon in Leo on Wednesday, trying to compensate this by grand gestures and extravagance is probably not the best approach. Fortunatley Mercury does go direct on Wednesday. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 1st May 2017 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The charming influence of Venus has returned to your sign but is forging two testing angles this week. This suggests that although your love prospects can start to improve, you may need to embrace a more practical side of possibilities and not be too idealistic about what can unfold. This will be particularly so if there's one person you're drawn to who seems especially needy.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
The Sun, in your sign, is squared by the Moon this week, suggesting somebody close to you may not be completely convinced by some of your plans. Might they have a point? With Jupiter squaring Neptune, with any scheme which is shooting for the stars, you must keep one foot on the floor. Yet as the week goes on, if you're clear about what you want, your determination can increase.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Your ruling planet goes direct mid-week and this could see an issue around a friendship or long-term plan require resolution. Also, there is a tricky Quarter Moon this week which can still see people experiencing cross wires when it comes to communications. With dreamy Neptune also highly prominent, this continues to be a time when getting facts clear is essential.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Your connection to someone in the know or who is influential, can seem to be revived this week. But there is a swirling mist of unreality circling around the heavens, and also the potential for some surprise switches of plan, either by you or by someone you're associated with. Still, as long as you can stay steadily on course, the week's end does offer rich promise for you, Cancer.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
The Quarter Moon in Leo this week, cautions you to ensure that the goals and ambitions that you're working towards at the moment actually do reflect your deepest desires, rather than being caught up in the expectations of those around you. There can be a real sense of restlessness, which equally could see you rebel against obligations. But any spontaneity can thrill you.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Your closest connections with others, be it on a personal level or even more business-wise, come very much sharply into focus. Whilst there has been part of you that's been desirous of change, it's the depth of these involvements which really can resonate upon you. However, with Jupiter in a tricky angle with Neptune, do ensure that your generosity is at least matched in kind.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
With your ruler now back in your sector of relating, and Mercury the planet of communication now in forward motion, this week presents an opportunity to get greater clarity about your hopes around key involvements. What's essential is that the balance between what you want and are prepared to give, and those things that you need to nurture you, are not too far out of kilter.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
However hard you try to make a good impression, this week's Quarter Moon suggests that someone influential may take some convincing. Rather than investing too much time in this, you might want to look more towards your own situation and how you can steer it. As the week draws to a close, a sensational planetary angle can see you enjoy a truly meaningful connection.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
You may encounter someone this week who really captures your imagination. But however sparkling the conversation is that you share, there may be something about this person that borders on the unfathomable. Much as this could add to their mystique, the Sun continues to ask you to be as down-to-earth as possible. Juggling social hopes with obligations can also feature.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Some kind of get-together or reunion can be staged at your residency. Then again, there can be some frequent comings and goings. With Jupiter forging an obtuse tie and Mars a sharp angle to Neptune, when it comes to your professional aspirations, ensure that you do some extensive research in preparation. If you do, the week's end can see you take a giant step forwards.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Someone around you may require a particularly supportive and sensitive approach. The chances are though, that you may have been more concerned with your own situation. Still, dialogue can increase and you may be able to inject some bright ideas into this. However, this is not a week to be gung-ho around your resources or get too caught up in more speculative possibilities.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Your two ruling planets, Jupiter and Neptune, are especially influential this week. Both of these give you a tremendous sensitivity and often spiritual appreciation. But when they forge more negative planetary angles they can create an altered reality. Work hard on checking out facts and figures to counter this. Pleasingly however, some positive financial news can emerge for you.
