Astrology for Feminists: Week of April 24-30
The new Moon in Taurus on Wednesday will shake up everyone’s astrology forecast for the week. Find out what’s in store for you!
This week should be super grounding and will also lend us the energy to help us get our projects and goals back into working form. The weekend brought us a very dark Moon and chill vibe with plenty of sleepy and spacey feelings, but this week we get back to handling our personal and professional business.
The energy won’t officially shift until Wednesday, because the dark Moon in Aries may bring up cranky and aggro behavior Monday and Tuesday. You may be on the lookout for how you can protect yourself with positive boundaries these days, and take a time out if you need it. The new Moon in Taurus will help lovingly ground and guide us towards achieving our goals, finishing our projects and taking care of ourselves in an active way. The waxing Moon in Gemini, Thursday evening until Saturday evening, will bring us into a talkative and intellectual place. We may feel mentally driven at this time, and we may want to reach out with verbal or written communications like texts, calls or emails. The waxing crescent Moon moves into Cancer Saturday evening, urging us to take a big time-out for self-care through Sunday.
