Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of Monday, April 11

 

  • General Horoscope

    This week will run from hot to cold so be sure to get your sexy in while you can. Tuesday is your day as Venus will snuggle up to Mars in a steamy embrace. The “cosmic lovers” happy together means you and your lover will be, too. Work it! By Sunday, everything might seem to lose its edge thanks to Mars shifting into retrograde motion. He’ll be retrograde until June 29, and sexual peaks might be a thing of the past. At least for a while.

  • Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

    You might feel extra sexy early in the week and then all of a sudden; lose your steam before you even realize what hit you. Mars, your ruling planet, will turn retrograde on Sunday and as a result, you might not have all of your usual mojo. This is your opportunity for a cosmic time out. The universe recognizes that you need to rest and regroup in order to process and then focus on what’s really important. Honor it.

  • Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

    Early in the week you and your lover might enjoy exploring a taboo fantasy together. One way or another, an erotic encounter is likely. In addition, you might even allow your partner into a part of your psyche that you kept guarded for way too long. Tackling these trust issues will surely enhance the intimate connection you’re capable of having with each other.

  • Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

    Make the most of the sizzling energy you’ll have early in the week with your partner because by the end of the week, things might just fizzle out. On Tuesday, it’s possible that the two of you will enjoy a fantastic social event together that gets both of you in the mood for love. By Sunday however, Mars will turn retrograde in your relationship sector. It’ll be time to slow down and contemplate where you’ve been and where you’re going.

  • Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

    Something about work or a professional opportunity this week will really turn you on. Be sure to spend time with your sweetheart talking about your mutual career goals or helping each other achieve them. Or, you may want to tackle a project the both of you have been meaning to complete such as a minor home organization. Aim to finish up by the end of the week so that you don’t become frustrated by any unfinished work.

  • Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

    You might feel full of hope and anticipation early in the week when it comes to your romantic prospects. If you’ve recently started to date someone new and sparks are flying, you may be tempted to begin a sexual relationship with this new sweetheart. Be careful: Mars will turn retrograde in your true love sector on Sunday. This is a notorious situation where, if you start a new sexual relationship during this time, you might feel less than satisfied. Wait until after June 29. Frustrating? Yes. Worth it? Definitely.

  • Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

    You might want to schedule a midday romantic lunch date with your sweetheart early in the week. Even better? Consider taking the day off on Monday or Tuesday and spend all day in bed together. Venus and Mars will be at a gorgeous angle, peaking Tuesday. This will allow you to enjoy the most erotic experience with your partner, right in the comfort of your home. Don’t waste it. Work will always be there at the office, waiting for you to return.

  • Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

    Aim to make the most of Tuesday’s romantic energy. Think of it as your “last hurrah” before Mars turns retrograde on Sunday and begins to slow down the progress you’ve been enjoying in the relationship department. Once Mars enters hibernation mode, it’s possible that you and your partner will find it more difficult to reach an agreement about an important matter. This impasse phase may last awhile. Then, you’ll need to use all of your signature patience.

  • Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

    There’s not much romantic potential for you this week, but you can still take advantage of the sexy link between Venus and Mars on Tuesday. Perhaps your lover will turn you on with talk about helping you find a freelance assignment or other way to earn extra money. Honestly, money and work will be on your mind way more than anything else this week. Focus on what you need to right now. You’ll have time for love after you pay the bills.

  • Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

    Life may go from fun and sexy to downright drab this week. On Tuesday, you may feel like you and your lover are on some kind of high together. Indeed, it’ll be the best romantic day you have for quite some time so be sure to make the most of it. By Sunday, Mars will turn retrograde in your sign. You may notice a slump in energy and motivation. The universe wants you to pay attention to your goals and do some honest recalibration.

  • Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

    You and your sweetheart might enjoy a special day with family on Tuesday. It’s possible that a domestic matter will be resolved easily. Or, if the two of you have been thinking about sprucing up your home, you’ll find that you share the same ideas on how to proceed with a decorating project. After Sunday, you might feel a stronger need to conserve your energy. If you’re not “in the mood” as much, don’t dwell on it. It’s time to recharge your spiritual batteries.

  • Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

    If you’re single, your social life is the key to your love life these days. Perhaps you and a friend have been toying with the idea of exploring the mutual chemistry you share. If so, aim for Tuesday. There’s great potential for sparks to fly. After Sunday however, you might begin to second guess whether or not this friendship should be messed with. Going from friends to lovers will suddenly seem like a chaotic prospect.

  • Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

    If you’re in a relationship, capitalize on the wonderful communication links that will happen this week. On Tuesday, you and your mate could be in perfect harmony about a financial decision. Then, on Thursday, you might be ready to sign a contract with your partner. It’ll be a great day to move forward on any real estate or family financial planning paperwork with your mate. After Sunday, life slows down for everyone. No need to worry; go with the flow.

A screeching halt

Communication shines this week so be sure to use that cosmic edge to your full advantage! But there’s a cloud looming over everything as Mars slows down to turn retrograde this weekend…

Tuesday, April 12: Mercury sextile Neptune; Venus trine Mars

On Tuesday, Mercury will sextile Neptune and Venus will trine Mars — so you can also anticipate plenty of yummy, sexy action.

Thursday, April 14: Mercury trine Jupiter
Sunday, April 17: Mars Retrograde; Mercury trine Pluto

On Thursday, Mercury will trine Jupiter, then on Sunday Mercury will trine Pluto. This week serves as the perfect blend of inspiration, wisdom and power in communication. You can (and should) move forward in any contract, negotiation or meeting. Pitch an idea! Expect splendid progress in any writing project.

The problems begin on Sunday when Mars comes to a screeching halt. During his retrograde (lasting until June 29), mighty Mars will lose his pep. You will need to spend time cultivating inner resolve and re-strategizing your goals. This won’t be a good time to push new projects that you need incredible stamina or entrepreneurial power to see succeed.

Magickal Days of the Week – Tuesday

Magickal Days of the Week – Tuesday

Named for the Norse god Tyr, who was a deity of heroism and combat, Tuesday is a very martial sort of day – color associations include bright red and oranges, as well as warrior-like metals such as iron and steel.

The ancient Romans called this day Martis, after the warrior god Mars – other deities associated with Tuesday include Ares, the Morrighan, and other gods of battle and glory. Red gemstones like rubies and garnets come into play on Tuesdays, as do herbs and plants such as thistles, holly, coneflowers and cacti – you’ll notice these are all sharp, prickly plants!

One of the interesting – and more than a little amusing – aspects of Tuesday magic is that in addition to war and conflict against your enemies, this is a day also associated with marriage. You can also use this day of the week for magical workings connected to protection and initiation. Use Tuesday to assert yourself, make a mark and stake your claims.
