Mercury continuing its long transit through Aries, squares up to both Mars and Saturn in Capricorn this week, who are in conjunction. This combination will need some care. Mars and Saturn together does have its upside but frustration can also be an issue, especially with the sharp right angle to Mercury. Fortunately, Venus makes a lovely aspect to the pair as the week draws to a close. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 2nd April 2018 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Chances are you're going to take your worldly interactions and responsibilities incredibly seriously at this time. For example, this may be the moment that you apply for a big job, or speak to a line manager about your future prospects. You may even consider investing in property. But you might have to accept that you won't automatically get everything on your own terms Aries.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
If you feel trapped by any situation, be it your circumstances, the views of others or as you see it, by fate, this could be a week that ferments some frustrations in you. It also can be a time when you finally find your voice about the values and views that you've been evolving, and find yourself keener to speak up. Happily, by the week's end, you can feel more settled than previously.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Your ruler Mercury is challenged by both Mars and Saturn this week, suggesting your hopes around one situation may need to be balanced against the financial elements of your circumstances, or anyone else you're closely involved with. Your love life can also give you food for thought, especially if you feel there is a lack of commitment on your part or that of your partner.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
The Sun and Mercury remain in the part of your horoscope to do with success, your worldly aspirations and responsibilities of all kinds. But it's the relationships that you have with the people you interact with which are going to be so important just now. It may be hard to meet the expectations of others, or perhaps a job or role will fall short of yours. Patience will be key here.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
That part of you which enjoys a little bit of escapism could be compromised by the other elements of your situation that demands that you do your fair share, and sacrifice your time and energy to others. If things are really out of kilter in this regard, you could experience a high degree of frustration this week. Try to be inventive about how you can create more time and space Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
One of your great gifts is your ability to discriminate by analysing the details of situations in working out what is meaningful. This is not a week to change this approach. By carefully sifting through what's relevant, you can make an informed decision, and especially around a business or creative opportunity. By the weekend, your Solar Horoscope looks very much more promising in all ways for you.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
With Mercury continuing to track backwards, clashing with both Mars and Saturn, it's going to be important not to jump to conclusions, and especially if someone seems off hand or unhelpful. With your ruler travelling into a deeper, more psychological part of your situation, your understanding can also evolve. Positive news around a home or property matter can also emerge.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Tension can be a factor this week, perhaps above all else, because you may try to be too virtuous and try to pack in too much. If you can create a plan for the week which is achievable, do, it will help to avoid building up pressure. But in general, you may find yourself quite strident about your point of view and opinions. If you have appointments planned, they'll be subject to change.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Whatever your circumstances, this is a good week to try to find ways to be as disciplined as possible about your resources. And yet there may be part of you Archer, that wants to be defiant about this and do as you wish. And of course you can, but something that seemed glittery may turn out to be anything but, and have no practical value to you, so proceed with caution.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You can find yourself incredibly single-minded this week, which if you want to get ahead, will give you tremendous self-discipline, and the ability to focus on one particular task, to the exclusion of all else. However, it is also going to be important not to neglect your emotional needs, or to give yourself the time to rest and recuperate. Work hard on family communication too.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
You may find yourself wanting to improve the decorative order of your abode. An idea that's been on the backburner for some while can also shape up very nicely by the week's end. You could have the happy knack of extracting a little bit more value from your resources. But this is also a week when you may appreciate time alone or circumstances conspire for this to be the case.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
You can be the ultimate idealist of the zodiac. Whilst these qualities make you unique, you do still have to exist in the world as it is. Something you aspire to, that is incredibly important to you, may be in conflict with how you're going to go about actually achieving what you want. Yet stick with it Pisces, for by the weekend, there is a much better chance you can achieve a breakthrough.
