April 2017 Horoscopes: Scorpio

Tell me this, Scorpio: When was the last time you let yourself play? Not something that could benefit your career down the road or possibly make you a new connection. I’m talking about doing something for pure enjoyment. When Venus retrograde enters your pleasure sector on the 2nd, the stars are calling you to have fun. Do something that makes you feel butterflies in your stomach, especially when Venus is direct again on the 15th.

Your patron planet, Pluto, will be retrograde from the 20th, making deep, deep waves in your self-expression sector. If you haven’t been able to say, write, or create the way you’ve wanted to for a while, this period brings a new approach that helps you get your heavy-hitting ideas out into the world. Mercury will be retrograde in your partnership and day job sectors from the 15th, so the people you interact with regularly might drive you nuts for a while. Still, use this as an opportunity to stretch your interpersonal communication muscles. Just when you think you’ve had enough, a caring Taurus new moon on the 26th comes to the rescue.
