The Planets This Week: April 23, 2018

What do the planets have in store for us this week? Love planet Venus moves into Gemini so many of us may be extremely sociable and form a wide variety of friends. The important thing at this time is to keep your connections alive and flourishing. With this transit, many of us may discover a love of learning and could be curious to find out about many different subjects; in fact, no one will be able to keep us from learning about something that interests us! In romance, we may find ourselves to be quite playful and flirtatious.

If you’re single, dating several people at the same time will not be unusual for you. At this time, we must be extremely careful with our declarations of love, because although we could feel extremely ‘in love’ in the moment, we may not feel that way at all when we wake up the next day.

Also this week, transformational Pluto turns retrograde until September 30th. Pluto is all about personal growth. Remember, you can’t grow all the time without pausing occasionally to absorb and integrate the lessons you’ve been learning. Pluto Retrograde periods are perfect for this. Personal evolution is a two-steps-forward, one-step-back process, and the pace is determined by the direct and retrograde motion of Pluto.

Occasionally the Pluto retrograde period is characterized by painful loss, or events and circumstances in your life that are far beyond your control. In many ways, Pluto represents factors that are much larger than any individual; it is the planet of human evolution. But for most of us, most of the time, Pluto retrograde periods offer us the chance to delve deeply into our own inner resources and determine what is most important, when all is said and done.

Tune in on Monday at 6pm PT/9pm ET to find out more…
