Your horoscope for the week ahead: Prepare to ask for what you want | CBC Life

Must read

There’s a lull in astrological activity at the start of this week, allowing us some time to pause and gather our strength. We’ll need it come Friday, when the planets start mixing things up again in a big way.

Prepare to ask for what you want when communicative Mercury conjuncts charming Venus in courageous Aries on Friday morning. Our words can be especially precise and powerful under this aspect, helping us persuade others with ease. Just be mindful not to let any barbs slip out while you’re speaking with passion. This could also be an excellent moment to pursue a budding romance or make some new friends; compliments and invitations tend to flow freely under this energy, creating beautiful starting points for fresh relationships. 

Then, we’ll bid adieu to an energetic Aries season as the ego-ruling sun enters reliable Taurus a few hours later. As the sun travels through this fixed earth sign for the next four weeks, we’ll be called to reprioritize our own comfort and security so we can focus on getting back in touch with our senses. Consider how you can use your energy wisely to attain what you desire during this transit. And remember to practise grace — with yourself and with others — as it may be particularly tempting to lean into stubbornness. 

Don’t be afraid to colour outside the lines when bold Mars in imaginative Pisces sextiles innovative Uranus in ambitious Taurus later on Friday. Risk-taking is often rewarded under this influence, so let your curiosity lead the way and challenge yourself to get a little wild. If you’re in a relationship, this aspect could also inspire you to try something new with your partner. Invite your loved one out for a night to remember and see what kind of adventures you can create together. 

On Saturday, lucky Jupiter will conjunct unpredictable Uranus in tenacious Taurus, urging us to get back in touch with our rebellious side. These planets come together just once every 14 years or so, giving us a rare opportunity to defy restrictions and really reclaim our freedom. Watch your world transform by saying yes to new experiences and engaging with people from different walks of life. It’s time to let go of everything you’ve outgrown and evolve into your next phase of being. 

Here is your horoscope for the week of Monday, April 15, 2024.

Aries

You’re known for having the gift of gab, Aries. And this week, you’ll be called to harness that talent to get what you want. Your charming personality is sure to win people over in the process, making them more eager to help you out. So whether you’re looking for ways to improve your schedule or increase your earnings, this could be an ideal moment to ask for support.

Use your creative mind to design a budget that allows you to save up for a rainy day. 

Taurus

Are you craving a change of pace, Taurus? This week, you may find it helpful to really slow down and take stock of your day-to-day activities. Reflecting on your current routines could help you come up with some powerful new strategies for tackling your personal goals faster. Just be ready to write down any ideas that arise before they slip into the ether. Then, you could feel something starting to shift from within as the sun enters your sign on Friday. Over the next four weeks of your astrological season, you’ll be blessed with added confidence and a renewed sense of self. Enjoy spending more time on your appearance and indulging in little luxuries. 

Gemini

Rest up, Gemini. Even the most high-energy zodiac signs need time to recharge their emotional batteries, so starting now and throughout the next four weeks of Taurus season, try your best to really reduce your output. Prioritizing relaxation and reflection will also give you the opportunity to identify what’s been getting in the way of you becoming your best self. Seize this moment to revisit any projects you’ve left unfinished and prepare for what’s shaping up to be an exciting summer ahead. You might even find that this extended quiet time stirs up something profound within you, inspiring you to take action to help make the world a better place. 

Cancer

Get ready for your social calendar to fill up, Cancer.

You could even find that spending more time with your loved ones ignites an idea for a new passion project that allows you to really make use of your talents. 

Leo

Are you ready to step things up at work, Leo? Starting this week and throughout the rest of Taurus season, you’ll be encouraged to seek out experiences and education that can help you reach your professional goals and optimize your earning potential.

You could end up receiving recognition for your accomplishments or elevating yourself to a new position or title. Then, on the weekend, you’ll want to be extra careful when discussing your ambitions with family. Practising sensitivity will allow you to navigate conversations with more ease. 

Virgo

Eager to enter the next phase of your career, Virgo? While your ambition can take you far in the professional domain, you may require a partner or investor to truly realize your dreams. So this week, start putting out feelers to people who you think could elevate your work or ideas; discussing your shared goals will help you find the best path forward together. Then, as Taurus season begins on Friday, you could feel inspired to explore new ways of expanding your mind. Have fun reading, taking classes and exploring events in your community that’ll broaden your understanding of the world. 

Libra

Have you gathered some pearls of wisdom about love that you’re eager to share with others, Libra?

Later in the week, as the sun enters Taurus, you may find yourself in a particularly no-nonsense mood.

Scorpio

It’s time to nurture your bonds, Scorpio. Starting now and throughout the next four weeks of Taurus season, your romantic and platonic relationships could begin to really come into focus, helping you understand and adjust how you engage with others. Carving out quiet moments with the people you care about most will encourage your connections to grow. Meanwhile, if you’ve been working toward a certain professional goal of late, you may want to take advantage of the coming astrological month to seek out a collaborator who shares your ambitions. Pooling your creative ideas could prove to be extra lucrative. 

Sagittarius

Your playful attitude can help brighten even the dullest days, Sagittarius. So don’t hesitate to throw caution to the wind this week. If you’re single, your heightened charisma could even end up attracting someone special into your orbit — be ready to strike while the iron is hot. Meanwhile, those in relationships may feel compelled to invite their partner to join them on their weekend errands. Have fun exercising, visiting a market or getting your hands dirty outdoors together. Then, as Taurus season begins on Friday, your well-being could start to take priority. Use the next four weeks to improve and streamline your day-to-day routines. 

Capricorn

Craving a little more downtime, Capricorn? Voicing your desire for a better work-life balance could help you make some big changes to your day-to-day schedule. But before you express your needs to your loved ones or colleagues, take some time to strategize how you’ll deliver your list of must-haves to ensure that they really land. Then, as Taurus season arrives on Friday, your creative side will be itching to emerge. Use the next four weeks of this astrological season to discover who you are outside your career; invest in pleasure, hobbies and other activities that allow you to reconnect with your inner self. 

Aquarius

Don’t underestimate the power of simple domestic pleasures, Aquarius. Starting now and throughout the next four weeks of Taurus season, spending time at home with your nearest and dearest will help fill your heart with joy. As you nourish your relationships and mull over unconventional ideas for your surroundings, use your keen mind to seek out the best money-saving solutions. Then, be prepared to step into a loved one’s shoes if you find yourself in conflict with them this weekend. Letting go of control and tuning into their perspective will allow you to resolve any issues that arise.

Pisces

You’re about to be as busy as a bee, Pisces. So at the start of this week, take some time to familiarize yourself with your schedule and responsibilities so you don’t end up neglecting anything important. Beginning Friday and throughout the next four weeks of Taurus season, tantalizing distractions will be everywhere, and you could easily get swept up in a whirlwind of activity. You may even find yourself becoming more involved with your local community throughout this period; enjoy connecting with neighbours and growing your friendships with the people you see in your daily life.
