A mighty clash occurs between the Sun and Pluto. There could be some powerful interactions around relationships, but this is all about control. Ironically, where there are more constructive colloborations, this week can see them develop really well. Mercury also finally goes forwards at the week's end, yet does tangle with the planet of obstacles, Saturn. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 9th April 2018 please see below…
Aries 21 March – 20 April
There are two distinct slices of energy affecting your situation this week Aries. But it may take some patience and forbearance to garner the good stuff, for there is one mighty astrological clash which will need some care. This is a square between the Sun in your sign and Pluto. Push too hard, and something can snap. Stay flexible and give-and-take, and bountifulness can follow.
Taurus 21 April – 21 May
Your ruler Venus forges two glorious angles this week, suggesting that this will give you the wherewithal to express yourself in a way which really fits how you feel. Someone you encounter can be the source of great knowledge and wisdom, and can have a profound influence. But most of all, try not to let any difficult encounters take on too much energy or importance Taurus.
Gemini 22 May – 21 June
This week's benefits may not necessarily be instantly obvious, so you will be asked to look beyond how things first appear, and then you can start to appreciate what is shaping up so positively behind this. This can be especially true around your professional career, where a success bringing aspect gets stronger. The key to this is avoiding trying to force the pace too hard.
Cancer 22 June – 23 July
With Jupiter and Pluto continuing a fabulous angle, which is being repeated due to the former's retrograde, one alliance can just seem to go from strength to strength. Confusion at work can also ease as Mercury goes direct on Sunday. Your horoscope suggetst that all close relationships are going to need a light touch, so look to avoid giving the impression that you want everything on your own terms Cancer.
Leo 24 July – 23 August
A situation which has seen you juggling your time and resources, and even priorities, can still be tricky to deal with this week. It's possible that you can feel irked by the expectations of others. However, the planets also suggest that if you can deploy a good deal of subtlety and diplomacy, there is much to be gained. A contractual snag can be unravelled as the week finishes.
Virgo 24 August – 23 September
If you're in a romantic relationship, things will get rather hot and heavy this week. Now, the upside of this could certainly increase the level of spice between you and yours. But there could be a bit of a battle of wills too. More positively, your ruler forges some lovely angles, ones which can bring a much greater desire to widen your horizons and make life more interesting and varied.
Libra 24 September – 23 October
With Mercury and Saturn squaring through to midweek, and the former continuing to retrace its steps until the end of the week, any attempts to work from home or get more organized may stall. However, this week's main influence is definitely the Sun's square with Pluto. One family tie could be strained, or might it be someone you share your home with? Patience will be a virtue.
Scorpio 24 October – 22 November
Your words, thoughts, beliefs and ideas can be very important this week. With Jupiter, the planet of expansion in support, if you are very clear in what you want to achieve, fantastic progress is possible. But there can also be tensions too. This is perhaps not the best of weeks to expect instant results, and where possible, keeping others in the picture can be good for you too Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November – 21 December
Don't underestimate the things you have been doing behind the scenes to better your situation. For example, there can be an improvement financially now, but this also calls on you to show maximum self restraint when it comes to expenditure. However, if your values and those of someone close don't mesh, and especially romantically, there can be tense scenes as the Sun and Pluto clash.
Capricorn 22 December – 20 January
There is so much potential to develop things in a creative and positive way for you, but frankly there is also the chance for things to go awry. The best way to avoid the latter is by recognizing that at times you and others may feel rather tender or even fraught this week, and then to make allowances for this. Once Mercury goes forward on Sunday, things will get easier Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January – 19 February
You may have more impact on situations than you're giving yourself credit for. Part of this comes from the fact that you don't necessarily speak out, but observe quietly, and of course sometimes will make your point. There is quite a febrile atmosphere this week, and you could feel a little bit on the back foot. But just absorb what's being said and be determined to speak out with care.
Pisces 20 February – 20 March
There can be a sense of excitement about your future. Both your guides, Jupiter and Neptune, are forging positive angles this week, so there is a lot to go for. However, what you must try to avoid is taking shortcuts. As much as one hope or aspiration may be calling out to you powerfully, there is still the right and the wrong way to approach things. Be as inclusive as possible.
