Horoscopes for the week of April 13th   

Your smile is your logo, your personality is your business card, how you leave others feeling after having an experience with you becomes your trademark.” ~Jay Danzie

I was giving an Astrology reading to a Leo Sun the other day, who shared with me her fear of becoming the shining star she was meant to be, because she didn’t want to seem vain or narcissistic while promoting her unique gifts and talents (vanity and narcissism represent the shadow side of Leo). Fast-forward to later that day; I was talking to a Scorpio Sun, who freely acknowledged the importance of having a healthy sense of entitlement (especially for young girls), and that it was OK to feel disappointment when your expectations fall short of extraordinary. I could relate to both sentiments. On the one hand we are taught to reach for the stars – the sky is the limit! On the other hand we must be mindful of greed, and not ask for too much. It can be tricky to find a middle ground that is humble, and too often we default to settling for less than abundance.

One of my favorite quotes is by Zelda Fitzgerald: “She quietly expected great things to happen to her, and no doubt that’s one of the reasons why they did.” Imagine living your life expecting great things to happen. What would that entail, and why shouldn’t you expect it? What if you received all that you could ever hope for; how would you live your life differently today? One of the things I do as a Life Coach is challenge people’s beliefs and conditioning. Not because I want to change how people think. But because I want folks to think for themselves, no longer living by outdated standards and teachings with which they were raised that so often influence self-limitation. True empowerment begins with a healthy sense of entitlement. This isn’t about demanding the life you want from a place of egoism. It’s about knowing you are entitled to the life that you want, a life that reflects the yearnings of your soulful self.

We’ve got a light week ahead as the planet Venus moves through the sign of Gemini, reminding us of all that is possible. We are being encouraged to explore what we value the most, and to do so with responsibility as Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius would suggest. As we indulge our curiosities, there must be intentions for all that is being considered. It is not enough to just be curious in other words. We have to be willing to completely step outside of the box and embrace all that could be in our lives. Now would be a good time, then, to revisit any New Year’s resolutions. Only this time with the understanding that what your spirit seeks is already yours, because you’re entitled to it. Check your horoscopes below to see how astrological transits will affect your sign this coming week, and be sure to read for your Ascendant sign too.

On the day you were born, all of the planets were positioned in the signs of the Zodiac – not just the Sun. To find out more about your full astrological make up, email Tracey for a personal Astrology reading at info@traceylrogers.com

Aries: You may be focused on gaining as much information as possible for your own benefit, Aries. This could mean researching various ways to generate new sources of income, or enhancing your skills and talents with a new level of expertise that would make you all the more valuable in a specific trade. Whatever your aim, try not to go the quick and easy route. You have many wonderful attributes, dear Ram. Don’t sell yourself short by becoming too impatient to prove your real worth.

Taurus: As a fixed sign who values all that you possess, there’s no better time than to take stock of what you have, and make room for more. Whether you want to buy a bigger home, take your relationship to another level, or simply enhance your skill set in order to obtain increased material wealth; there are many opportunities for you to explore. FYI, you benefit the most when you can merge with those who share a common goal. You don’t have to do it alone; combine your resources.

Gemini: Love is in the air Gemini, and as I said in your annual horoscope, only the committed kind of relationship will do. Venus in your sign makes you that much more charming and attractive, so you can expect to be turning heads and melting hearts. However, while you enjoy tasting all colors of the rainbow, it would behoove you to avoid those who lack substance. Truth is; you harbor a real fear of not being seen or accepted. Try a little authenticity. Don’t be afraid to them your true colors. As an Astrologer + Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life! Visit traceylrogers.com for more details.

Cancer: There’s no time like the present for a little TLC, especially when it comes to your spirit and soulful self. In accordance with your symbol the Crab, your preference is to lay foundations and put criteria in place, and there will be plenty of time to do just that dear Cancer – I promise! But for now, try nurturing yourself. Let others do the work while you catch up on sleep and hit the spa. Consider yourself forewarned, as the need to self-nurture will only intensify in the coming weeks. As an Astrologer + Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life!

Leo: You may find love at a social gathering, or while volunteering at the local shelter dear Leo, and if so; this will not be your typical romance. Oh no – your lover will be more mature, serious with his or her intentions, and looking to mate for life. If you’re not ready for a real romance, then don’t bother with said individual. If you are ready to engage in practical love, then brace yourself for a whirlwind of activity that involves less drama and more substance. Playtime is for cubs, dear Lion.

Virgo: You get an early start with regards to any career changes, Virgo. Now would be the time to make your move, as you are set to make an indelible impression. Be mindful, however, of overdoing it, missing your mark while in pursuit of a new client, or in an attempt to make a convincing argument. Your attachment to a certain outcome may get the best of you, and you’ll come off as more emotional than professional. Strike a balance; be passionate, but let folks seek you out first.  As an Astrologer + Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life! Visit traceylrogers.com for more details.

Libra: If you want to go big Libra and increase your knowledge and expertise, you’re going to have to think big and examine the broader picture. It’s not enough to just take a class, for example, consider embarking on a degree program. Don’t just learn HTML coding. Build your own website! You see where I’m going? When it comes to education and learning and connecting with others, skimming the surface won’t do. You’re going to have to go all in, which requires real commitment.

Scorpio: You may run into conflict with others as you begin to reassess your own financial standing, values, and worth. It seems that while partners and business associates want to spread shared resources and invest in a variety of activities, your preference is to conserve what you have and stick to a budget. There is value in both mindsets Scorpio, which means a compromise must be struck. Don’t be so tight with your money. At the same time, don’t allow others to spend frivolously.

Sagittarius: The warm weather up North may be just what you need to relieve some personal pressure, dear Sadge. Getting out to socialize, and maybe even mingling on the dating scene could be just what the doctor ordered. The number of folks waiting to make your acquaintance might just surprise you, and while I understand that you won’t want to settle for anyone; it’s OK to discover your options in order to ensure that you attract the right kind of mate. Take your time and explore. As an Astrologer + Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life! Visit traceylrogers.com for more details.

Capricorn: Keeping busy and filling your days with activities that you enjoy may get you out of a prolonged funk. Going to the gym with a buddy; volunteering at the church bazaar; purchasing a daily planner that will help you stick to a more structured schedule – these are all things that would serve you well. Don’t forget, however, that you will also have to find time for inner reflection and spiritual nourishment. Believe it or not, this will be just as important as sticking to your daily grind.

Aquarius: A little romance is possible this week, especially with a friend or an acquaintance met at a social event. In fact, if you’re looking to link up, it might be worth asking a friend to link you up! Your friend will know what’s best, keeping your best interests at heart. But FYI, should you make a new connection on the social scene, this won’t be some light and frivolous fling. Friendship is an important part of courtship. Only a solid individual who is mature and offers longevity will suffice. As an Astrologer + Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life! Visit traceylrogers.com for more details.

Pisces: Many Pisces are playing the balancing act between home matters and work matters. This may or may not be stressful; ultimately, it depends on your response. When life is out of sorts on both fronts, you’re the one who suffers. Unfortunately, this is not the time to simply go with the flow – some level of organization will be necessary. In fact, the more you are able to structure your schedule at the office, the easier it will be for you to cater to domestic affairs. Then everybody wins!
