Meanwhile, Venus in Pisces will awaken your compassionate nature and help you tune into your inner world

The springtime crescent moon phase is brimming with proactive energy. This week, as the moon grows from a slender curve at sunset into a half moon, it's time to plant the seeds of your ideas — and nurture the shoots that appear. Some will grow into projects that will bring you a great deal of satisfaction. If you've been having a hard time of late, it could be just the tonic to get you moving in the fast lane again.

On Monday, Mars — the planet of power, drive and force — conjuncts Saturn, the planet of discipline and control. This will help you calibrate your energy output to prevent you from burning out. Make sure you get enough rest for your batteries to fully recharge. 

Venus, the ruler of feelings and relationships, enters sensitive Pisces on Tuesday. This will help you tune into your inner world and examine any psychological matters that require your attention. 

Pisces emphasizes the unity of all beings on this planet. It will help awaken your compassionate and caring nature, so you can better understand what those close to your heart are going through. If you use this opportunity to hone your intuitive abilities, you may find coincidences in communication occur, in which others reach out just at the moment you're thinking of them. 

Here is your horoscope for the week of Monday, April 4, 2022.


A pleasant surprise awaits you this week as some productive celestial activity unleashes a powerful force out of the blue. You will receive something that you have long wanted and needed in an area of your life that has been very short of good news. Your heart is bound to feel a lot lighter once this takes effect, marking quite a difference from the norm. For one thing, your love life is set to brighten up in all the right places. Positive developments are coming, and there is still the potential for much more in the weeks ahead. 


If your heart is ailing, the sky will give you a chance to put things back together this week. You have the potential, now, to engineer a development that will bring dramatic change to a part of your life that is crying out for improvement. Where you have grown used to a sense of powerlessness, you will feel an increasing ability to make good things happen. You are much loved, admired and appreciated, and you will soon see plenty of proof of that. 


Luck is knocking on doors on your street. There is the promise of good fortune for you in the material world, as well as imminent improvement in your emotional life. The two developments, though, are most definitely not connected. They are working their way toward you separately and under different conditions. If you want to make sure to avoid unnecessary conflict and confusion, be careful not to imagine a link of any kind. Just have faith that you are due for something wonderful to transpire on multiple fronts. 


A balance of power is about to shift. Real emotional connections will start to grow gradually, and though they may come into existence with a whisper, they will become stronger the longer they exist. As with romance, so with all matters close to your heart now. Grand gestures are neither here nor there. It's life's more subtle signs and signals that you need to pay attention and respond to. Go gently amidst the chaos. You'll feel much better about everything in the coming weeks.


What matters more than anything now is clear communication. You are about to get more of this, and it will bring big improvements to every area of your life. You will be able to see situations for what they are and express yourself with accuracy — a gift that deserves acknowledgement and gratitude. This week, seize the opportunity to look at life from a wider, wiser perspective, and life will help steer you toward whatever you need most. 


It has been some time since you last felt safe enough to take your eye off the ball and just enjoy life. When will you be able to relax once again? Sooner than you think. This week, you should at least stop feeling as if you need to remain constantly vigilant, lest you miss a crucial development. You'll start to see and feel an improvement taking place. A big wish is clearly fulfillable now, and you will begin to make progress with it this week. 


If you want proof of what the universe is doing for you, look to the bridges being built, the opportunities being created, the discoveries being made and the challenges that are starting to arise. Regardless of what is currently frustrating you, you have to concede that some of these things appear very hopeful. This week will bring you a further source of fresh inspiration, so be on the lookout for a surprise development. It may seem irrelevant to your main interest at first, but an ideal opportunity is being offered to you. 


It's often the case that when you solve one problem, you solve several more at the same time. Sure, you may create some additional difficulties in the process as well, but that's just the way life works. Nothing is entirely perfect. This week, you'll find yourself looking at a number of uncertain issues, most of which appear to be unrelated, but are actually linked by an invisible thread. Once you identify this, positive change will start rippling through every level of your life. You have a lot to look forward to. 


You are recovering from a difficult, draining experience that has left you feeling somewhat jaded. It has you wondering if, when it comes down to it, perhaps all your hopes are merely pipe dreams. But if you really must indulge in conjecture, try to pursue a more inspiring line of speculation. Maybe the worst is over. Maybe it was just a storm in a teacup. Maybe life, from this point on, is going to get a whole lot easier. This line of thinking is much closer to the truth.


It feels impossible, at this moment, to distinguish which elements of your life are actually ideal and which ones merely appear to be. But you don't need infallible insight or impeccable discrimination to find the answer, just a little optimism and open-mindedness. This week, you will start to make some necessary discoveries. As you do, it will become clear that — though little is quite as you thought it was — there is indeed nothing to worry about. 


You are giving it all you've got, and that's usually enough to get satisfactory results. Why then, are you still struggling so hard? Perhaps you are failing to spot something obvious. You think you ought to want one thing, but in your heart of hearts, you really want another. You must face this, be honest with yourself and come to a decision that is fair yet realistic. This may sound hard, but it will actually prove to be quite easy. Once you've done this, you will start seeing the best possible outcomes. 


You can always count on your wit, creativity and ingenuity to get you out of a pickle. So, how do you access this inner well of resourcefulness? Begin by making sure that sharp doubts have not drilled holes into the side of your bucket. If they have, these must be mended with a little faith. Then, lower the rope gently. Stay calm, and you will be clever. One brilliant idea could change everything.
