Spring always feels like the light at the end of the tunnel, but this year, that feels more apparent than ever. And thankfully, after a dizzying week that kicked off with a relationship-oriented full moon, was followed by a dreamy but confusing meet-up by messenger Mercury and spiritual Neptune, and wrapped up with Mercury shifting out of watery Pisces and into fiery Aries, we're being gifted a calmer, sweeter, and — in many ways — more upbeat vibe as we move into April.

This is partially thanks to the intuitive moon forming several positive, productive conjunctions. First, on Monday, it meets up with powerful Pluto in Capricorn, amplifying emotions to the point that they can feel downright transformative. Then, after it shifts into Aquarius on Monday, April 5, it joins with taskmaster Saturn on Tuesday, April 6, making it easy to tackle serious emotional issues, followed by Jupiter on Wednesday, April 7, boosting that spring fever-y optimism. (

Tuesday can also set the stage for lots of sexy flirtation and confident, creative energy, thanks to romantic Venus in Aries forming a friendly sextile to go-getter Mars in Gemini.

On Thursday, April 8, the emotional moon in Pisces forms a positive sextile to game-changer Uranus in Taurus, nudging you to shake things up, broaden your horizons, and seek adventure.

But on Friday, April 9, you might want to steel yourself for feeling potentially discouraged or frustrated by slowdowns and confusion, because aggressive Mars in Gemini forms a tense square to rational thought-hazing Neptune in Pisces, which could make for figuratively stormy weather.

Thankfully, the week closes out on Saturday, April 10 with a couple of productive aspects that are setting us up for Sunday's new moon (more on that next week). First, communicator Mercury in Aries forms a pleasant sextile to serious Saturn in Aquarius, which can support tackling any involved mental work (like tying up any loose ends with your taxes), and then, sweet Venus sextiles lucky Jupiter, offering a boost for relationships, sex, and connecting with loved ones and friends.
