Mighty Jupiter enters a four month retrograde this week, in the sign of Sagittarius. International affairs and property, travel, contract and legalities can be affected practically, but there is a spiritual dimension too. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 8th April 2019 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The Sun in your sign angles towards both Saturn and Pluto, so you can view conflict as an opportunity to test your prowess or as a competition. This can be the case this week, when staying quiet might not seem helpful. There is another way though, although it could mean backing down, and that is negotiation. Be honest, but try to be flexible too if you want progress.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
If something is causing you angst, then you might find that facing up to this matter rather than steering clear, could be one way to tackle it. You don't need to do this all at once, as taking baby steps can allow you to process through this slowly. And with expansive Jupiter rewinding from midweek in an intense zone, you may be encouraged to let go of whatever holds you back.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
If you find yourself involved in intense conversations that get nowhere, then frustration could result. And with powerful energies involved in the mix, a key issue could come to a head. If you can get a higher perspective on this though, things can change for the better. Adopting a philosophical approach may not be easy, but the resulting solution might work for everyone.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
No matter what other commitments you have, the cosmos positively encourages you to seize the moment, should an opportunity arise that is unlikely to be repeated. And with a Quarter Moon in your sign ready to push you out of your comfort zone, this may be no time to refuse. Jovial Jupiter will also rewind, and can be a chance to reorganize your schedule to suit any new plans.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
You could find yourself in an awkward situation and decide to take the initiative to resolve a disagreement. If things come to a head, then you might need a way to diffuse them. Empathy can be key, as putting yourself in others' shoes could make it easier to reach an agreement, even if you need to talk tough. As Jupiter rewinds, it may be time to take stock of your many talents.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
You could feel awkward around a certain person and unable to communicate as you once did. If so, then it may be that something in your relationship has shifted, and that you no longer see eye-to-eye on various matters. This can also be a call to take this bond to a new level, which might mean moving out of the security of your comfort zone and being more open about certain things.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
This can be a time when you do some tough talking, and perhaps it is just what is needed to get others to appreciate you more. You may be tempted to abandon any efforts at diplomacy and come out with the truth. But with both Mercury and Venus making harmonious angles, you might find you can be honest in a way that encourages others to be more understanding towards you.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
The temptation to over-think a key task could be strong, but it might also be the reason that you find yourself unable to take the next step forward. To make progress, positive aspects encourage you to adopt a more playful approach and not take this too seriously. Generous Jupiter rewinds too, with the coming months bringing a chance to research some deeper values, Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Fun-loving Jupiter will turn retrograde in your sign this week for some months, encouraging you to assess plans and relationships. Over this time, you'll get a sense of what is working and what isn't, which can lead to making helpful adjustments. Even so, an upbeat aspect with the Sun over the weekend, might see you enjoying an outing or perhaps a delightful romantic tryst Archer.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You could clash with family members, unless you are willing to discuss issues and come to a compromise. The Quarter Moon over the weekend could be a chance to move forward with this if you can adopt a flexible approach. Feisty Mars continues to power through your lifestyle zone, encouraging you to take diet and exercise routines to the next level for optimum wellbeing.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
You may feel a powerful urge to share something that has been on your mind for some time. And finding a friend and talking about it with them could bring much relief. Someone with good listening skills and confidence in your abilities, can leave you feeling much more positive overall Aquarius. As Jupiter rewinds, you may reconnect with someone from the past in an uplifting way.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Tuesday can be perfect for a romantic date night or a chance to spend quality time with a significant other. But with the Sun angling towards both Saturn and Pluto in your solar horoscope, you may feel you are being dictated to by someone in your social circle. Rather than challenge them, consider talking this through as it can keep things on an even keel while ensuring it doesn't happen again.
