Weekly Horoscopes: April 25 to May 1, 2016
Welcome to Galore horoscopes, where we’ll advise you on whether to expect drama, chill vibes, hot sex, or all of the above over the coming week.
Peep your sign’s seven-day forecast, starting Monday and ending the following Sunday, below. Pro tip: instead of your sun sign, make sure to read your rising sign as it’s far more accurate.
Are you holding on to something that you shouldn’t? With pleasure-yearning Venus in your second house of finances, you will want to go shopping and indulge. I feel you, Aries, but the Planets want you to wait. Especially trickster Mercury, because it’s in retrograde motion, duh. Avoid new purchases. Is it really worth it? Make sure to keep all the receipts if you do buy something, because you might have to exchange it later.
Venus combined with Mercury retrograde could bring you pleasant surprises related to money. In the past, you might have invested funds and are now finally getting the rewards. Sweet. With last’s week intense Scorpio full moon in your eighth house of shared resources this might just be what you need right now, to be more independent. During this erotically charged moon you probably had a very sexy time with your significant other.
The transformative Scorpio full moon last week in your relationship sector might have ended things between you and somebody. There’s no better time than now to start fresh. It’s still your birthday month and an excellent time to work on your personality. With Venus, the planet of attraction in your first house of self, you feel like you want to improve your looks. I would say go for that new haircut, but since trickster planet Mercury is turning retrograde I strongly advise you not to change your look. Wait until Mercury turns direct and don’t worry, bewitching Venus is boosting your aura and you are more charming than ever. You will be like an attraction magnet. You might also be much more flirtatious than usual. Holy moly. With Mercury, the planet of the mind, in retrograde motion, it would be good time to reevaluate fixed thoughts and ideas. Be open to new theories and watch out for signs and synchronicity.
With agile Mercury, your ruling Planet, turning retrograde in your 12th house of the unconscious, secret and hidden things may come to light. You might be less talkative and quiet during this transit. Remember silence is golden. I suggest you keep a diary of your dreams. You could encounter messages from your deep unconscious. Analyze your dreamer notes and try to lift the secret. It is very likely that you could achieve closure now, with issues that were haunting you and your fabulous crazy mind. Rethink some situations from the past, did it really happen the way you remember it or are you exaggerating?
With so many planets retrograde at the same time, there is a high chance that you’ll bump into past lovers. This way, maybe you’re going to reach closure. You might bump into that someone, you thought you never really got over and realize that you are so over them. You’ll probably wonder, what attracted you in the first place. Or it could go this way. Dangerously in love? You could be reinitiating a secret affair with somebody from the past or someone may confess their love for you, which you might never have guessed. What a fascinating week for you, Gemini.

Be careful with your word choice and make sure you don’t upset a co-worker. Thankfully charming Venus is on your side, so even if you happen to be too blunt with somebody they’ll be very forgiving towards you.
