Horoscope Weekly: Apr. 11 – 17
By Samantha Perkins
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – Monday’s a great day to get ahead on your schoolwork, meet new people, or try new things, but the rest of the week won’t go so smoothly. You’ll often find obstacles blocking your path. That doesn’t mean you can’t get things done and have a decent week, you’ll just have to work a little harder. Over the weekend, take some time to talk with your friends and family. You all have stories to tell and feelings to share, and this weekend is as good a time as any to do just that.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – At the beginning of the week, you may feel a little rushed, but you’ll get back to normal on Tuesday, and all your best qualities (especially your persistence) will be magnified. This magnification of good traits will last until Friday, so you might have a pretty good week in store. This weekend is a good time to take risks. Explore someplace new, try a new restaurant, talk to that person you like. The sky’s the limit.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 21) – Monday might be a good day to get some advice from your close friends. In fact, you may be looking for guidance through Thursday, as you’re faced with unusual obstacles and unclear expectations. Just be sure to get insight from the people you are closest to. Once you hit the weekend, however, all that’s blocked your path will seem to vanish. You’ll have a ton of energy and a fun, flirtatious attitude that will liven up any room. It’d be a good time to go out, socialize, and have a ton of fun.
Cancer (Jun 22-Jul 22) – You may be tempted to flip out about something at the beginning of the week, but you should probably try to keep calm. However, having your emotions and ideas on the surface are beneficial as the week continues. People will be admiring your quick wit and crazy ideas. Over the weekend, you might feel overwhelmed by little details, but don’t let them get you down. It might be the universe’s way of telling you to ditch your routine and go with the flow.
Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22) – You can have a good time no matter the situation at the beginning of the week. Just be sure to include others, too. You should probably take things more seriously as the week continues, though. You don’t just want to be known as the class clown. Over the weekend, your friends are looking to have some fun, so go out with them and do something you all can enjoy.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22) – On Monday, you’ll feel incredibly determined and you’ll know exactly what to do and how you want to do it. Just be sure that you aren’t taking advantage of a friend or coworker along the way. However, you’ll shift into a more philosophical mood as the week continues. You might want to look for people that you can bat around big ideas and contemplate the meaning of life with. Over the weekend, you’ll get energy from being out in bigger groups, so plan some group outings and have fun.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22) – You should be careful with your one-on-one relationships on Monday. Compromise is incredibly important, and keep in mind that whatever you bring to those relationships will be multiplied and returned. Throughout the rest of the week, your natural diplomacy will shine. People will be looking to you to give advice and settle arguments, and those that you help will surely be impressed with you. Over the weekend, you’ll be dying to have good conversations with people, so maybe you should make plans to go out to dinner or have a sleepover with your closest friends. Those are typically the best situations to have deep conversations with others.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21) – Friends and family will be looking to you for help on Monday, and you’ll feel the urge to do the right thing, so try to pitch in and help out. Throughout the rest of the week, you should try to find a balance in your relationships. Flexibility and compromise are incredibly important, but just be sure that you’re not giving too much, even though you’re unlikely to. Over the weekend, use your intuition to your advantage. If something feels right, it probably is, but the same holds true for if something doesn’t feel quite right. Just keep an eye out.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21) – You’re full of energy at the beginning of the week, and you can accomplish anything. This energy will continue throughout the rest of the week, and on top of that, your communication skills are off the charts. You are able to get your point across clearly and persuasively, and you’re able to talk about, and argue, anything. Over the weekend, you’ll feel like just sitting at home and daydreaming, and that’s good for a night or a day, but spend some time out of the house, too.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19) – There are a lot of things on your mind right now, Capricorn, but don’t let it get the better of you on Monday. You’ll get through this rough patch soon. Everything will feel much easier on Tuesday and throughout the rest of the week. You’ll be feeling happier and you’ll be full of good ideas. Over the weekend, it might be wise to focus on getting things done. Tackle that essay, study for that test, and get your chores done. You’ll feel less stressed out come Monday if you accomplish a lot in your free time.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) – You’re full of imagination and ideas at the beginning of the week, and it feels like anything can happen. Don’t be afraid to indulge in your imagination and be creative. However, excitement won’t come as easily as the week continues. Don’t fret though, you’ll find a way to keep yourself and your friends entertained. Over the weekend, look for ways to get your excitement going again. It wouldn’t hurt to embark on a weekend adventure or two.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) – Take caution on Monday. Things might not be what they seem, and it may take some sleuthing to get to the bottom of things. Throughout the rest of the week, you may feel like you’ve been bitten by the love bug. You’ll find yourself writing poetry, love letters, even romantic texts. Expect positive replies. Over the weekend, you might find yourself feeling overwhelmed and confused. Find ways to clear your head.
