April 29, 2016 Weekend Ricksterscope

5R’s – Incredible to 1R – Awful

The weekend begins with the Moon transiting the sign of eccentric and cerebral Aquarius. Our unique qualities surface, and friendship is very important to us. Transiting Venus enters Taurus late on Friday afternoon. We desire monetary security and we value the good life during this transit. Have you never been mellow? The Moon sextiles Uranus (in Aries) late in the afternoon on Saturday. We are excited about new possibilities. The Sun (in Taurus) sextiles Neptune (in Pisces) very early on Sunday morning. We value practical moves and endeavors to make the world a better place or to help others less fortunate than we are. Transiting Mercury turned retrograde on Thursday this week. Now, we have five planets in retrograde motion, so it could be very difficult to get anything consequential done in the next few weeks. Try not to sign any new contracts or make any important (new) decisions during the next three weeks. Expect miscommunications and possible misunderstandings. We may not have all the information that we need yet. Continue to collect relevant information.

Aries – Group endeavors and friends figure prominently in your forecast on Friday. Hold meetings and get together with other like-minded persons. Find your friends in the evening hours. Your income could increase in the next few weeks. Use it wisely. Better yet, save some of it for a rainy day.

Saturday is likely to be a very enjoyable day for you, spent with stimulating and interesting friends. You’ll probably get the chance to lead a group in an activity of interest late Saturday night. You might shock others by your actions or words.

You might want to think about how you can help others less fortunate than yourself on Sunday. Vanish early and prepare for the week ahead.

Taurus – You probably have a number of responsibilities to deal with before you can let loose and enjoy the weekend. It’s as if you’re holding court later in the PM hours. However, the mood is calm and reflective.
