When your weekly horoscope for April 12-18 calls for retrograde in commitment-minded Juno, there won’t be a dull moment. There’s a lot going on with the planets this week, so make sure you stay on your toes—especially when it comes to relationships. It all starts on Monday when the asteroid Juno turns retrograde in Sagittarius. Juno rules over marriage and long-term commitments, so expect a lot of impulsive, flighty behavior, and jealousy.
Fortunately, relationships start to stabilize when Venus enters Taurus on Wednesday. The planet of love and beauty rules over Taurus, making it a lovely homecoming. Over the next few weeks of April, romance and financial pursuits will be filled with security, happiness, and indulgence.
Finally, the week ends with a lot of planet movement on Saturday when Mercury (planet of communication) in Aries makes a sextile to both Jupiter (planet of luck) in Aquarius and Mars (planet of passion) in Gemini. This is stirring us to become mentally quick and sociable. However, Mercury also squares Pluto (planet of power) that same day, making you a little careless with your words. Don’t turn your mental sharpness into a weapon.
