Your Milky Way Horoscope April 1-7, 2012
By Milky Way Maid
Venus enters Gemini at 11:18 am Tuesday. Venus in Gemini is the big flirt of the zodiac, sorry Gemmy if you are tired of hearing that. Venus here does not generally like to be touched, and prefers a mental connection before getting serious about a relationship. Admirers may come in pairs or multiples, making it harder for you to make up your mind. Some famous people with Venus in Gemini include Leslie Caron, Bill Shakespeare, Ringo Starr, John Glenn, Richard Strauss, and Benjamin Spock.
Mercury goes direct at 6:11 am Wednesday at 23 degrees 51′ of Pisces. You can come out from under the covers now, honest. Mercury does not reach the degree that it turned retrograde till April 23, so you will probably be checking your work and correcting errors till then. Gotta be done. The computer ate some files? – hope you have backup. The dog ate your homework? – oh, c’mon, you can do better than that. Ignore promises made while Merc was retrograde; they won’t pan out, 9 times out of 10.
Venus at 2 degrees Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces at 9:48 pm Thursday. Do not sign contracts – someone may be scamming you. You’re attracted to get-rich-quick schemes which will not pan out. You could fall for someone who is not what he says he is.
Full Moon Friday at 3:19 pm as the Moon opposes Sun in mid-Aries. The Moon is inconjunct Jupiter and Mercury on either side of the opposition to the Sun, so I would take that to mean that you may need to brush up your skills by taking a class or two. Mercury and Jupiter are both students, with one being the higher octave of the other.
Venus at almost 4 degrees Gemini squares Mars in Virgo at 7:36 pm Saturday. Passions are aroused. This can be either good or bad, depending on how you handle it. If you fight with your mate, it can be so much fun making up. But there will be friction between you – may start a nice blaze in the fireplace, or just an aggravating brush fire.
