Horoscope: Positive health or medical news may come for some

This week we see a recurring challenge and magic from Venus.

Thursday, April 21: The moon in Capricorn isn’t the only serious sign in the sky today. Saturn makes a square connection to the north node of the moon, indicating a desire for security working out more spiritual needs as in “what is real security for my lifetime goals?” It was April 21, 1918, that the Red Baron was shot down over France. The kill is credited to Canadian Arthur Roy Brown.

Friday, April 22: Again, the moon in Capricorn is busy and serious. And, again, also spiritual as the connection today is a conjunction with Pluto, ruler of our deepest motivations. Happy birthday #85 to one of Hollywood’s leading actors, Jack Nicholson, famous for his neurotic roles in “The Shining,” “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” “Chinatown” and more.

Saturday, April 23: Today is the third quarter moon in Aquarius. It’s a day where panic may set in over unfinished business. Perhaps even over unstarted business. It’s time to get back to a list that is achievable. The man most often named the greatest writer in the English language, William Shakespeare, was born on April 23, 1564. He died April 23, 1616.

Sunday, April 24: Mercury in Taurus has centre stage today and even though there is an undeniable pragmatic quality to Taurus' thinking, today it is imbued with the influence of mysterious Neptune and also makes full contact with the north node of the moon. The north node is the point where the moon appears to cross the equator on its journey around Earth. It's a point where we see our future desires more clearly. It was April 24, 1942, that Lucy Maud Montgomery passed. In addition to “Anne of Green Gables,” she wrote 20 novels as well as 530 short stories, 500 poems and 30 essays.

Monday, April 25: Expect a friendly start to the work week with positive health or medical news for some. The man who voices Moe, the bartender from the Simpsons, turns 58 today. Hank Azaria also is the voice of Chief Wiggum and others.

Tuesday, April 26: Venus begins her five-day leading role in the cosmos today with a connection to the north node. This sets the stage for a connection with Neptune tomorrow and then with Jupiter on April 30. Famous bird painter John James Audubon was born April 26, 1785.

Wednesday, April 27: Today, Venus conjuncts Neptune and three days later Jupiter, for a few days of magic. Jupiter and Neptune are collective planets. Venus is a personal planet. If the influence of the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction has been somewhat abstract, this is your opportunity to understand what it means for you. With Jupiter’s help, Venus will translate Neptune’s foggy messages and make the intangible, tangible. Listen to your heart – it will give you all the answers. This is not a Uranian moment of clarity. Instead, this is a deep knowing of what’s right, of what makes you truly happy, what kind of person you want to be and what kind of life you want to live going forward.
