Weekly Astrology Forecast April 18 – 24, 2022

Excerpt from PatreonThe picture begins to calm on April 20 when we enter Taurus season. After the frantic pace of Aries, this is a welcome movement that gives us time to gather our thoughts and enjoy what we have in the present. Security is the watch word of Taurus so we may feel more focused on practical issues of survival now – ensuring bills are paid and food is on the table. But in this uncomplicated sign, we enjoy simple pleasures – a nice meal with a loved one, an afternoon crafting, pottering around in the garden – or indeed pottery! Where we may have been fighting our circumstances or frustrated with the previous transit through Aries, now we are much more content to wait it out. Taurus has endless patience. We just have to watch any tendency towards resistance to change as this sign can be a stick in the mud when it comes to trying new things. Plant seeds, enjoy nature, treat yourself, delight in the senses, make love, make art. Let yourself have the odd lazy day. Right now, we can all do with the comfort and ease that Taurus brings.  

The full weekly forecast is available over on my Patreon ($5 tier) along with lots of other astrological, tarot and magical content – including an exploration of Jupiter in Pisces and its major aspects through the houses for the signs. Click here to join my Patreon.
