On Wednesday, April 26, we’ll experience a New Moon in Taurus, and this will provide us with cosmic relief amidst an intense and unpredictable retrograde season, Scorpio. This is the last week of April, and the saying “April showers bring May flowers” couldn’t be more accurate. Except that with this week’s New Moon, the blooming period of your life may arrive a bit earlier than expected. Scorpio, you’re someone who knows how to persevere against all odds and keep going, no matter what obstacles stand in your way. But in the month of April, with 5 planets being retrograde at one point this month, you may have felt like life has sent you curveballs left and right, and you’re ready for a break from the frenzy. This week can provide a grounded foundation on which you can exhale and finally feel secure.
Many of your experiences this week will have to do with partnerships, relationships, and collaborations. You’re someone who thrives on your own, because you know who you are and where you’re meant to be so clearly, and you often don’t have time to explain your vision to others, because no one but yourself can see it with such depth and perceptiveness. But this week, you’ll realize that when you dare to be more transparent with others about what you expect and what you mean, you’ll receive transparency in return, and as a result you won’t be feeling as suspicious of other people’s motives or actions. With the Moon in Taurus lighting up your partnership sector, you’re being asked to lead by example this week, Scorpio. Avoid passive-aggressive behavior by all means, and stand firmly in your truth, even if others don’t agree with you or are put off by it. The important part is that you own your truth, and that you no longer keep it hidden in the background.
This week’s New Moon is actually a SuperMoon, meaning that the effects of the New Moon are tripled, and your urge for starting anew will be very potent and passionate. Taurus energy can be very stubborn and inflexible though, so you will have to beware of power struggles or arguments this week, especially since we’re in the last full week of Mercury Retrograde. You’ll have to find a balance between your need for immediate novelty, and your nostalgia for the past. It’s important for you to not rush into something new without being aware of why you want it in the first place. But at the same time, don’t let your perfectionism or fear of failure paralyze you this week, Scorpio. The key is to take action, even if you’re starting small, with baby steps. The most important step is the first one. Everything after that will be easier.
Romantically, Venus will re-enter fiery Aries this Friday the 28th, and this will really amp up our sex and love lives. You won’t be able to say no to your sensual urges — and why should you have to, anyways? This is the week to be direct and bold with the object(s) of your desires. Go ahead and double text, ask your crush out on a date, plan a surprise outing for you and your significant other, and/or take yourself out on a solo date and infuse yourself with self-love. Venus in Aries makes you realize that love is not something you seek, but something you are. Once you decide to take ownership of filling your day with loving vibes, you’ll notice that your “love life” improves dramatically. It’s your job to weed out the drama or insecurities that may have caused blockages in the pathway of romance. This week’s New Moon energy lasts for 10 days, and the seeds of intention you plant regarding how you love and receive love can manifest fully within the next 6 months. So when you think of Scorpio Season, what kind of romantic experience do you hope to manifest by then? Focus on how that makes you feel, and work your way backwards. What must you change about your habits and thought patterns now, to make room for your ideal love life?
All in all, Scorpio, this week will make you realize you’re not alone, and there’s no reason to feel lonely. The Universe loves you, and you are deeply loved by those around you. Your job is to be present and grateful enough to notice that love. Because let’s face it, Scorpio — sometimes you’re so stuck in your own world that you don’t realize what’s right in front of your very nose. This week can awaken you to life’s wonders and constant blessings. And the more you tap into this feeling of constant abundance, the less you have to complain about, and the sunnier your life becomes. This is the last full week of Mercury Retrograde, so you’ll be receiving major lessons from past experiences, and it’s your job to tie them all together and understand what these past 3 weeks were about, so that you don’t end up repeating the same romantic, financial, friendship or professional patterns again. You know what to do to live your best life, Scorpio. So do it.
Have a great New Moon week, Scorpio! Share how your week’s going in the comments below.
