Mercury begins the second of its annual rewinds this week, and asks us to marshal the more practical side of life, really carefully. However, with the Sun forging a lovely link to the gentle energies of Neptune, compassion and thoughtfulness can have a tremendous impact. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 25th April 2016 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The dazzle surrounding your persona, which illuminated your situation last week, continues into the first day of this one. However, if you're looking for really solid results it's also going to be necessary that you focus on any details. Despite this, it's going to be the nuances in conversations which are key. Your financial fortunes can also improve from Saturday.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
There may have been some chopping and changing around your thinking, at least as far as relationships are concerned. But this week gives you a great opportunity to take firmer control of events and especially once your ruler Venus rejoins you later in the week. However, with Mercury tracking backwards in your sign from Thursday, patience will be important.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Your horoscope suggests subtlety will take you as far as all out action this week Gemini, and increasing your awareness to the strands that go on just out of sight, such as office politics and the like, can help you to tune into any undercurrents that may be going on. Unusually, you may find yourself more inclined to seek out privacy and solitude as the week winds down, but if so, try to be accepting of this.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
If you have a spiritual dimension in your life, this could come very much to the fore, especially in the second half of this week. Linking with friends who are attracted to meditation, mindfulness or holistic therapies can hold great appeal. Yet you can start to feel more playful and in the mood for more outgoing activities as the week draws to a close, Cancer.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
With the Sun and Mercury in the most prominent part of your horoscope your worldly interactions are to the fore, yet with Mercury rewinding from mid-week and Venus moving into this area too, your natural charm and ebullience needs to be balanced against practical action and delivering on anything that you promise. Sincerity is going to be essential, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Your ruling planet Mercury goes into the second of its annual retrogrades this week, and anything to do with travel, post services, distribution, contracts and documents will need careful marshalling. However, with Venus set to move into this sector of discovery too, your love life could continue to fizz, but just who with and for how long could come as a surprise.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
The restless edge that was so prominent last week around your relationships can start to dissipate, although there may still be an echo or two. Whatever anyone says to you, it's what they really mean that is key. Watch out for someone's body language as this may provide some clues. Joint finances or business ties can improve as the week comes to a close.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Part of you may want to be to the point, whereas another could find that subtlety can serve you so much better in general. Your relationships are going to be improved by being attentive and also showing a spirit and willingness to give and take and compromise. The week's Quarter Moon, and the move of Venus, suggest you shouldn't jump to conclusions.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
The Sun is angling to Neptune positively and this can see you rearrange your home or add some tasteful but practical touches. In general, life's nitty-gritty issues are calling out to you but with Mercury slamming on the brakes midweek, attention to detail is going to be vital over the next three weeks. However tiresome some of these may be, do grapple with them.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
The Sun and Mercury continue to encourage you to demonstrate your personal qualities and enthusiasm for life. Mind, with your ruler Saturn still in a hard right angle with Jupiter, your energies do need to be well targeted. Once Venus joins the most glorious part of your 'scope as the week ends, you can really sparkle - but there may be some last minute changes socially.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
A conversation you had over the weekend or have at the start of this week can be really enlivening and also get you thinking. The basic foundations of your world are at stake, and a discreet conversation or heart to heart with a caring member of your inner circle can help provide illumination. Whatever you do, try not to bottle emotions up in the next three weeks.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Your personal communication can be good this week, yes, even though Mercury goes into the second of its three annual rewinds, Pisces. The trick is going to be in not rushing to comment. Take your time and people can actually be very receptive to what you have to say. Rush and you may blurt something out in the wrong way. A text or email can prove crucial.
