Exploring innovative and experimental techniques is recommended for artists this week. The importance of freedom of your own body and having bodily autonomy is highlighted where each individual has the right to decide what happens to their own body without coercion by external influences.

Mars enters Cancer on April 23, 2021 at 7:48 am ET. We could hear of water related defenses this week, including boats and ships associated with military matters. Strong feelings and a clash of energies could be demonstrated through fiery actions, like protests and violence, which could also be associated with waters. Domestic disputes are possible to be in focus, where egos could lead to arguments in the family, especially with mother figures. Considering so many have anger and emotional issues we could see demonstrations that remind us that a needed approach are calmer reactions to bring the fiery tone of Mars under control. A strong protective quality, especially of the home, family and your body is indicated during this period. Women’s issues could be in focus, and strong protection of body autonomy, as “my body, my rights” could get attention.

This is the time to think outside the box and to consider what practical actions you can take to make life more free. This is when brilliant ideas came come out of nowhere, especially about what you want to establish and work toward for the future. This is a good time to be open minded and think up ideas on how to make plans that give you a sense of personal freedom. We could hear a lot more about the subject of bio-tech this week.

Venus and Mercury in Taurus are both in challenging aspect to Saturn in Aquarius on April 25, 2021 – with Venus at 12:51 am ET and Mercury at 7:58 am ET. Restrictions and limitations, especially when they affect your relationships and those you love can feel extra challenging for many during this period. A desire for freedom can be notably increased at this time and feeling limited for any reason, especially related to rules and restrictions can really affect the way people think and feel now. Stubborn differences of opinion can also create wedges in relationships, especially when there are stark differences in personal values. Communications can be troubling, restrictions on information can be an issue, and what is said now can lead to karmic responsibility that lasts. We could also see some financial issues crop up that reveal problems with debt and restrictions on income. More eyes may be on the stock market this week.

Then, Mercury and Venus will conjunct in Taurus on April 25, 2021 at 6:19 pm ET. This is a good time to connect mind and heart. Loving words to another can make all the difference.
