Micro-Forecast: April 16 to 22, 2012

A nice week, indeed, as Venus enters flashy Aries and Sun enters grounded Taurus. The New Moon in Taurus suggests that the next four weeks are about beautifying yourself, your home, your garden. If the weather is good, this is even a great time to do a little planting around that New Moon. Root crops, particularly carrots, turnips, etc., love the New Moon. Also, Mercury is aligned with Uranus, again, as it was last week. It could be that those new friends or acquaintances you met come back for a second visit. Enjoy. Keep your mind and heart open.

Think back to early March, have there been cancelled lunches or missed appointments since then? Now is the time to get back on track by picking up the dropped threads of communication and rescheduling those meetings. With Mercury moving full speed ahead in Aries and now reaching its shadow point, expect a lot of to-dos to be crossed off your list.
