If things feel like they’re at a complete standstill, then you’re not necessarily wrong. You may be feeling somewhat stagnant with regards to a personal goal, or perhaps a long-awaited message you have yet to receive, but luckily, your April 3 weekly horoscope is here to prove that it’s actually the opposite.
There are a series of astrological energies we need to take into account this week. Ever since the North Node (where we’re collectively headed, as well as the celestial energy we’re being guided to embrace) entered Taurus back in January 2022, there’s been a change of pace that’s impossible to deny. Governed by sensually driven Venus — the planet of abundance, fertility, pleasure, and values — the essence of this zodiac archetype has everything to do with slowing down, staying grounded, and nurturing sacred possessions, whether it be personally and/or when it comes to the planet at large.
Having said that, this could certainly validate the slow-and-steady momentum we’ve experienced as of late. By that same token, Taurus’s planetary ruler (Venus) has been quite frustrated for quite some time given the recent astro-alignments, not to mention her rough retro-journey through Capricorn that started in November 2021. And the truth is, following the North Node in a Venus-ruled sign when Venus isn’t comfortable (let alone inspired), is a lot more frustrating than we can admit. Think about it: this is the planet that governs everything from our love life to our general sense of stability, and when things aren’t smooth sailing with her, it can feel like a crazy ride. The good news is lady Venus will be making her dazzling debut in the fantasy-loving sign of Pisces on April 5, where she “exalts,” which is equivalent to thriving, living her best life, and staying productive. All things related to beauty, love, relationships, money, and pleasure are at an all-time high.
Pisces is a symbol of universal love and all that is, so when the planet of love enters this dreamy sign, desires switch from spontaneous and unconventional (Aquarius) to compassionate and mystical (Pisces). Now, there’s always a dark side to every transit. For instance, in the case of this water sign, it’s important to be mindful of boundaries, as we are more likely to let things slide under this intuitive, empathic, and highly compassionate transit. Keep in mind, between April 4 and 5, Mars (the planet of action, energy, and passion) will conjunct taskmaster Saturn (which symbolizes restrictions and boundaries). In turn, this gives us no choice but to slow down and reassess our current situation. Something’s got to give, and it’s what’s being brought to our attention all throughout this Mars-ruled season.

Aries (March 21-April 19) Weekly Horoscope For April 3, 2022
After an invigourating new moon in your sign, the cosmos is here to replenish your spirit and guide you during your healing process, Aries. The week of April 3 begins with the moon in Taurus, bringing emotional emphasis and general awareness to your stability-seeking second house of comfort, finances, and value systems. Keep in mind, Mercury and the wounded healer, Chiron, will continue to activate your cardinal fires, which, in turn, highlight everything from your repressed fears to wounds you’ve likely carried with you from past occurrences. However, now that you’re embarking on a new journey around the sun, you’re finally coming to terms with the people, places, and situations that are truly worthy of your time and energy.
Speaking of which, your planetary ruler, Mars — which also happens to fuel the South Node in Scorpio — will sit alongside taskmaster Saturn in Aquarius. Despite being a swift-moving fire sign, this push-and-pull dynamic is challenging you to take a step back and reassess next steps. This is especially true when it comes to your community affairs, friendship circles, and future visions. Your sense of belonging in the world is being highlighted, especially those of you attached and/or entangled in partnerships that are no longer serving you. Seductive Venus will also debut in dreamy Pisces on April 5, bringing abundance, harmony, and fertility to your secretive 12th house of closure, sacrifice, and surrender. Activities such as meditation, swimming, dream journaling, and listening to music bring magic and serendipity to your world.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Weekly Horoscope For April 3, 2022
Things are beginning to shift, and all for the better, Taurus. In the meantime, the week of April 3 begins with the moon conjunct rebellious Uranus in your sign, so if things aren’t going according to schedule, don’t sweat it. This dynamic synergy is bound to trigger some chaos, especially when it comes to your emotions. Although, looking on the bright side of things, this could also serve as a catalyst for your individual freedom, so harness these energies wisely. If things feel stressful between April 4 and 5, it’s likely due to a frustrating Mars-Saturn conjunction, as it will also face off with the moon in your sign. Mars wants to feel inspired and invigourated for the future, but Saturn continues to create limits.
For some, this tension could revolve around your professional path, reputation in the world, and sense of authority. But if things slow down or suddenly come to a halt, it’s important for you to reflect on whether the path you’re on is in alignment with your core values. What do your visions of the future look like, and who can you lean on for support? Then, the best part of the week: your luscious planetary ruler, Venus, will debut in Pisces in your 11th house of associations, community affairs, and friendship groups — where the goddess of love thrives, as will you. Your planetary ruler has been through quite an interesting journey, but things are about to smooth over. There are significant changes taking place, but know that it’s all for your highest good.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Weekly Horoscope For April 3, 2022
You’ve got a big week ahead, so make sure you get some rest, Gemini. More importantly, if things aren’t making sense with regard to next steps and what the future has in store, don’t let this derail you from your chosen path. The week of April 3 kicks off with the moon conjunct Uranus, urging you to break away from patterns of self-sabotage.

You’re ready to purge a vision, faith, and/or belief system. The moon enters your sign on April 5, followed by Venus’s debut in Pisces (in your bossy 10th house of career, authority, and reputation in the world), which could bring forth some much-needed clarity when it comes to your sense of direction. Luna will harmonize with Mars and Saturn towards the end of the week, which also reminds you to never say never. You’re onto something, and you know it.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Weekly Horoscope For April 3, 2022
With the right mindset, the next few days could bring a series of breakthroughs, Cancer. Planning a much-needed holiday? The week of April 3 begins with the moon conjunct rebellious Uranus in Taurus — in your socially conscious 11th house of associations, community, and individual freedom — so expect unexpected developments when it comes to everything from your online presence to the connection you have with coworkers, friends, and peers. This, however, could be a bit burdensome thanks to this week’s frustrating Mars-Saturn conjunction on April 4 and 5, as it will simultaneously clash with your planetary ruler, the moon.

To each their own. Either way, your day-to-day is bound to experience some chaos in the process. On a more magical note, however, Venus is being supported by Jupiter and Neptune, which is equally as enigmatic as it is fated. Single?
