The Stars This Week: April 28 - May 4, 2014
Use Common Sense!

The month comes to a close -- and a new one begins -- with a financial focus, as April 28/29 brings a solar eclipse in Taurus. Luckily, Mercury's aspects throughout the week -- a trine to Pluto on April 29, a sextile to Jupiter on April 30, and an opposition to Saturn on May 2 -- help you formulate solid, workable plans. Venus enters Aries on May 2, when you can make a fresh start in your most important relationships. And on May 3, when the Sun trines Pluto, reach out to those who can help you!

April 28 (PDT) / April 29 (EDT): Solar eclipse in Taurus
Solar eclipses are quite dramatic. This one, in a sign that rules your values and finances, casts a major spotlight on how you handle your money. With so much uncertainty in the world, this is an ideal time to be practical. No matter what you make, buy, or sell, take this opportunity to get a handle on your material life. You'll then be able to make sensible decisions that will, in turn, help make your life more comfortable and secure.

April 30: Mercury sextiles Jupiter
May 2: Mercury opposes Saturn
As the communication planet forms multiple aspects, use this time to reach out to others and let them know what you're thinking -- your ideas can gain the attention of influential people and those who will help you put smart plans in place. Just remember that you'll need to make sure you've done your homework and know what you're talking about! Be ready to answer questions and provide details to anyone who asks.

May 2: Venus enters Aries
With so much intensity during the past month, you could use a little ray of sunshine to brighten your days. Just in time, the relationship planet's entrance into the first sign of the zodiac brings new energy into your love life! Pay close attention to themes that emerge in your interactions. If you want to meet someone new or make a fresh start in your current relationship, now's the time to put a positive vibe out into the world. This transit, which lasts until May 28, will spark your passion, so make sure you fan the flames!

May 3: The Sun trines Pluto
Support is available for your projects and plans, so make sure you let people know who you are and what you're up to! With the Sun and Pluto currently in Earth signs (Taurus and Capricorn, respectively), you'll need to demonstrate that you're sensible, grounded, and have a well-conceived plan for moving forward. If you've done the hard work, people will invest in you. At the same time, don't forget to seek out opportunities to help others!
