Weekly Astrology for April 20, 2020 by Chris Flisher
We begin the week with the Sun entering Taurus for its yearly tour of the fixed earth sign. While in normal times this might seem a welcome arrival and it is indeed for those who are earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) it does come at a time when we are still so uncertain about the future. All of which is understandable and expected. Normally this is a time when the earth begins to thaw and flowers begin to pop up and the air has that rich fecund smell of freshly turned earth. But how many of us will be able to return to a life that we once knew. The future remains a mystery. There is always a silver lining to all clouds and this will be no different. Midweek there is a new Moon in Taurus which could be a signal for a new beginning so there is reason to hope. Also by the week’s end the Sun will come into a conjunction with Uranus. Uranus is the planet of the unexpected. When the Sun shines in a conjunction with Uranus we might be able to see some good unanticipated news. Might the hews be that the COVID-19 virus has begun to abate? While there are no guarantees, Sun conjunct Uranus does hold that potential quite prominently. Let’s see. Each of us has an area of our lives that is being shaped by this conjunction. Where is that happening in your life? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Elsewhere we see Pluto station retrograde in Capricorn. Pluto will be in retrograde until early October of 2020. Retrogrades are periods of time for reconsidering. They are not necessarily times to dread as we often hear when speaking of planets such as Mercury which is the most widely discussed planet when it comes to retrogrades. This motion of Pluto is more likely to allow us the opportunity to reconsider what steps we have taken during this time of enormous trial. Will this signal a recurrence of the virus? Or a reversal of steps taken to halt the virus? Good questions both. Late in the week, we will see the Moon move into a harsh angle with Mars. The Moon in fixed-sign Taurus will come into a square to Mars in fixed-sign Aquarius. Moon and Mars in a square can deliver potentially aggressive and anger-fueled themes. The challenge is to wield this potential in ways that serve rather than tear down. The potential is there as with any planetary angle that is significant by degree. Of course, the Moon moves relatively quickly so this may be a passing flare-up that dissipates quickly. On the other hand this same transit delivers a harmonious angle of the Moon to Pluto, so the changes afoot Where will you feel it?

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The Sun leaves Aries this week, but don’t despair. You may find renewed financial surprises as the Moon, Sun and Uranus tap into your resource domain. Saturn places a bit of responsibility on that surprise though so you may have to rise to the occasion before you can see the results. Motivation towards partnerships.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There may be an abundance of attention being aimed at you and some of it might be surprising or unusual. You may find a renewed focus on employment matters especially since so much may have been put on hold or uncertain. It might not hurt to look for alternatives at this time. New Moon, new outlook.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Venus is in Gemini now and will soon retrograde so you’ll be getting an extra dose of that Venusian energy. Train your focus to matters of communication and contractual agreements. In fact, documentation, legal matters and even work with siblings remains prominent during this time. Something surprising may begin unexpectedly this week.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): Conversations are likely about your employment options. Surprising news may arrive that relates to a large organization and your role in it. Responsibility may drive the conversation and much may appear as an organizational shift of some dimension. Focus on business alliances and partnerships. Do roles change? What unanticipated news comes to light?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The cosmos is asking you to be cognizant of your health and daily routine this week. Responsibility means paying attention and doing the right thing. A surprise connection to employment also lingers in the wings so be aware of that unexpected connection. Relationships require your attention and the reward of past deeds is present.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Employment prospects may brighten this week, so keep your ear to the ground for possibilities. Travel and education hold promise for expansion and unexpected outcomes provided you are responsible and pragmatic. You may experience motivation to find an outlet that serves your personality best. Metaphysical topics capture your curiosity and pull you in.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Wanderlust may grab you this week. Perhaps cabin fever has struck? Given the situation you may find respite in armchair adventures in lieu of the real thing. Renewed focus on family matters continues to grind away in the background. There may be several logistical complications that tangle an already challenged arena.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Unexpected gestures or realizations may surprise as they arrive from a close friend or primary partner. By the same token you could meet someone who becomes important to you further on down the road. Watch a significant relationship this week. Domestic matters may be motivating but you might be wiser to issue restraint.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may stumble upon something surprising that pertains to your health or your daily routine, which might be one and the same. Legal matters may require your attention so figure out which bureaucratic arena requires attention and attend to it. Investment strategies require overhaul. Good, cheery conversations may populate your friendships. Nice.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Surprising bursts of insight and inspiration are possible with creative projects so take heed and act. You might not get it right the first time, but you have to start somewhere. Finances may be a nagging problem that must be addressed with practicality and prioritization. Exercise may be your best outlet. Get active.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are busy, Aquarius and rightfully so. Major projects or plans are coming to fruition in some manner; either starting or closing. Motivation is at your back as Mars moves through your sign. Joined by Saturn you may be determined to make things better, because you are fire and eager to get results.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): New opportunities are what drives you this week. Look to siblings and relatives for possible surprising connections to that end. Business alliances are a pestering nag that seems hard to resolve and yet, a slow methodical crawl towards a resolution mind yield the best outcome. Research into documentation and legal matters might uncover a surprising piece of information.
