Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, April 24 - Sunday, April 30
After last week’s bombardment of four aspects (that I wrote about in the very long horoscopes), in addition to the already very #retrogradeApril, I have some good news…. this week is the last week of April! And there’s nothing terrible to report. I’ll just go over the basics and it’s not overwhelming. We have a new moon in Taurus on Wednesday in the early morning hours, the big reset button for Taurus suns and a sweet new beginning for everyone else. On Friday the love and money planet Venus moves to Aries, and can heat up your love life. It’s Taurus season and that means savoring and appreciating all of the sweet and simple pleasures in life. All of the other aspects that I’ve been writing about don’t just go away as we start a new week- all that stuff still applies. We continue to integrate. Everyone has their own deep work they’ve been engaged with, we’re all a little tired and our adrenals are likely depleted, but we can also reflect on the beauty that surrounds us. Invite joy in wherever you find it.
Enjoy your week. And New Moon blessings!
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)- Celestite and pincha mayurasana

Aries & Aries Rising
Last week was pretty action-packed astrologically speaking. Obviously the aspects mentioned in last week’s horoscopes are still in play, and this week we have a new moon in Taurus and Venus shifting to your sign. The new moon, like the sun, is in your money house and can bring opportunity or good fortune your way. Set intentions at the new moon for inviting abundance and wealth into your life, as well as grounding and self-worth. These intentions will grow and evolve for the next six months. Taurus season can be a useful time for you ground down and get earthy- just tune into the Venus vibes. Money and beauty planet Venus rules Taurus… so Taurus season for you is about wealth and worth; certain aspects of your life have the potential to feel pretty heavenly if you can find the alignment. This would be a good time to focus on your career, lucrative sources of income, creating financial security, and clarifying what is most important to you in life.
On Friday the love and money planet heads into your sign and settles into your first house. This can spice up your love life as well as contribute to your material success. Venus rules over wealth, beauty, adornment, love, romance, connection, art, money… so for the next several weeks you can immerse yourself into creating or expanding in these areas.
Taurus & Taurus Rising
We had so many aspects and shifts last week that we’re still trying to see how we feel about it all this week. The sun has just moved into your sign, and on Wednesday morning we have a new moon in Taurus, making it your most powerful new moon of the year. You have the opportunity to set intentions for your life for the next six months and these goals or dreams will grow until the full moon in Taurus. Make a ritual on this moon during your solar return month and ground into what you want in life, what visions you want to renew, and the evolution that you are ready for.
Your ruling planet Venus moves into Aries on Friday morning, into your mystical house of healing. Themes of this part of your chart include closure and endings, karma and compassion, hospitals and healing, sorrows and self-defeating behaviors. Fortify your boundaries if necessary, to prevent the emotional stress that comes from having people around you that siphon your energy or drain your joy. Invest your time and money in things that support your soul. Let go where appropriate and heal your heart.
Gemini & Gemini Rising
There was so much astrological action last week and we are still adjusting and integrating this week. Taurus season is underway, and on Wednesday we have a new moon in Taurus. New moons generally are for new beginnings, setting intentions for the next cycle, but with Taurus in your twelfth house, the focus for you will be more attuned to the dark moon, the cycle just before new moon. Let go, purge and clear out as much as you can, releasing old patterns of self-sabotage or defeat, negative self-talk. Bring hidden agendas and information to the surface so it can be released. Focus on healing and getting closure. Then at the new moon, set intentions for moving forward with more lightness and open-heartedness, free of the heavy burdens of self-undoing. This is all in support of your solar return month coming up next, Gemini.
On Friday Venus, planet of love and wealth, moves to fiery Aries and your house of alliances and collaboration. These next weeks you’ll find comfort in your friendships, and will likely join a new group or club or connect with new people. This part of your chart also rules your long term goals, your hopes, good luck and intellectual pleasures. Clarify your wishes for your life, your objectives, and begin to gather your tribe.
Cancer & Cancer Rising
You could still be processing all of last week’s astrological shifting, but don’t worry because there’s plenty of time for that. This week as you settle into the Taurus sun cycle, make some time to observe Wednesday morning’s new moon in Taurus. This continues to illuminate your house of friendships and connections. Set intentions at the new moon for this new lunar cycle that lasts until the full moon in Taurus in six months; themes could include collaboration, goals and objectives, harmony in relationships, idealism, teamwork, technology, or alliances. This is a good time to reach out to family or colleagues, join a new organization or club, and to think consciously about the people you surround yourself with, your chosen tribe. Make adjustments as needed, from a place of consideration and not hurt feelings.
Venus, planet of money and beauty, moves into Aries on Friday morning, to your career house. This could bring a financial boon, a promotion or raise, a new position of power, or possibly an office romance. Falling in love with your work again is also a possibility, if you haven’t felt inspired or productive lately. Your material success could increase now. Be on the lookout for some good investment or career advice from a father figure in your life that could be the information you’ve been waiting for.
Leo & Leo Rising
There was a lot going on last week, Leo. This week you should feel more settled into the earthy Taurus sun cycle while still processing some of the aspects that occurred last week.

Organize your mind and your life, declutter both, and invite clarity to emerge. Eliminate people and situations that create emotional upsets, as these disturbances create illness. Put yourself first.
