Your horoscope for the week ahead: Listen closely to your inner voice as the solar eclipse in Aries arrives | CBC Life



Prepare to embrace change at the start of this week. On Monday, the first solar eclipse of 2024 will arrive as the ego-ruling sun conjuncts the emotion-ruling moon in action-oriented Aries. This powerful lunation can help us become more aware of our patterns and bad habits, allowing us to release what’s no longer working from our lives and make way for new beginnings. Just be sure to listen closely to your inner voice as you navigate this process; you could unearth some critical information about how to harness your true potential. 

You’ll have the power to make magic when energetic Mars conjuncts structured Saturn in imaginative Pisces on Wednesday, so seize the chance to follow your heart and pursue your loftiest goals. If you’ve been feeling frustrated or aimless of late, this energy could also help steer you in a direction that truly aligns with your creative vision. Just remember: nothing will happen without hard work and perseverance. Use this aspect as a jumping off point to create a concrete plan for attaining your desires. 

Then, let your curiosity lead you to new heights when the vitality-driving sun conjuncts chatty Mercury in courageous Aries on Thursday. This is a beautiful aspect for socializing, making connections and working with others — especially if you’re looking to transform some of your creative ideas into passion projects. Still, you may need to check your ego if you want to successfully collaborate. Teamwork requires reciprocity, so don’t be afraid to make a few concessions. 

Here is your horoscope for the week of Monday, April 8, 2024.


Are you ready to let go, Aries? This week, you’re called to summon your confidence and begin cutting ties with outdated concepts of who you are. Doing so can help free your mind, creating space for you to grow and pursue fresh opportunities, so don’t hesitate to release the past and go after what you want. Now is your chance to chase what brings you happiness. Meanwhile, when it comes to your career, pressing pause to engage in a little introspection could prove especially useful. Set aside some time to review your accomplishments and progress so you can determine where you want to make your next big move. 


It’s time to recalibrate, Taurus. You won’t be able to ignore your hidden self’s needs at the start of this week, so use this as an opportunity to turn inward and really embrace your vulnerable side. Re-examining your fears, secrets and dreams will help you get to the heart of things and find the answers you seek. Come mid-week, this renewed sense of awareness might even inspire you to plan an adventure with your dearest friends. Whether it’s taking an ambitious trip or an intriguing new class, have fun sharing your curiosity for the unknown and learning more about the world together. 


Don’t underestimate the impact you can have on others, Gemini. At the start of this week, a conversation or news story could light your heart on fire, inspiring you to channel your talents, passion and skills toward a cause you care about. This is a brilliant moment to go against the grain and figure out how you can really contribute to making the world a better place. Then, as the weekend approaches, you’ll be ready to let your hair down and reconnect with friends. You may even find that spending time with your favourite people allows your confidence to soar; don’t be afraid to step into the limelight and entertain them. 


Extraordinary things are on the horizon, Cancer. In fact, an unexpected work opportunity could be waiting in the wings at the start of this week. Follow your instincts as you decide whether to take it; you may find yourself feeling particularly confident and eager to make waves in your professional world. Then, come mid-week, you could feel compelled to level up your skills to get an edge on the competition. Spend some time researching classes, seminars and workshops that’ll help enrich your mind. You could be well on your way to becoming an expert in your field if you’re willing to put in the work. 


Is your mind hungry for new information, Leo? Harness this zest for knowledge to pursue your educational goals or expand your idea of the world at the start of this week. You may even find that an unlikely conversation leads you to a light bulb moment of sorts; be ready to say yes to adventure as you explore new ways to enhance your experience. When it comes to money matters, you may feel energized to take a more proactive approach toward your finances mid-week. Take advantage of this renewed drive to implement a practice that’ll help you stay on top of your budget in the long run. 


Your love life could get extra spicy this week, Virgo. If you’re coupled up, you may even gain a fresh understanding of what you and your partner want from your relationship. Harness this intuitive energy to reconnect with your loved one and enhance your connection. If you’re single, this will be a beautiful moment to get in touch with your sensual side and learn to command more confidence in the dating sphere. Conversations about intimacy can help draw people closer to you. Just remember: this week is all about communicating your needs. Leave the guessing games behind and be upfront about what you desire. 


True partnership requires effort, Libra. And whether you’re dealing with romance, friendship or a business connection, you may feel a push to really put in the work to rekindle a certain spark this week. If you’ve been noticing inconsistencies within your relationship of late, this will also be an ideal moment to speak up and start to restore balance. Meanwhile, on the domestic front, you’ll be feeling charged up and ready to tackle any clutter that’s been building up in your home. Channel this energy into finding fun ways of handling your most pressing chores so that you move on to the larger home improvement projects that you’ve been dreaming about. 


Is your to-do list piling up lately, Scorpio? At the start of this week, do your best to simplify your life so you can get some much-needed rest. This is an ideal time to instil more balance between your professional and private lives. Find a way to delegate some of your responsibilities or determine what tasks can be eliminated completely. Remember: you can do anything, but you can’t do everything. Then, mid-week, you may feel compelled to carve out more time for your hobbies. Consider making a list of what you’d like to accomplish so you can figure out how to make the most of your free time. 


Do you really have time for another hobby, Sagittarius? You may feel tempted to dip your toes into a new creative venture at the start of the week, but before you get too invested, you must ensure that you’re ready to eliminate something that’s taking up space in your life and no longer fits. You don’t need to feel guilty for doing so; passions change, and that’s just a part of the process. Come mid-week, your attention could turn toward your home, calling you to find fresh DIYs and home improvement projects to focus on. Make a list of priorities and figure out a budget so that you can begin to manifest your interior design dreams. 


Have you been considering some big changes to your home, Capricorn? This week could give you the motivation you need to hit the ground running. It’s an ideal moment to develop a plan that streamlines all your ideas. Consider what your space lacks and what you may be able to add that will improve your daily life. Making some minor adjustments today could have a significant impact tomorrow. Or, if you’re happy with your space as it is, perhaps it’s an internal transformation that’s on the horizon. Be ready to do a little heavy lifting — facing your fears will help you overcome insecurity and self-doubt. 


Don’t hold back, Aquarius. At the start of the week, follow your impulse to participate in conversations with just about anyone who crosses your path. Each of these exchanges holds a kernel of truth and can help add richness to your life. You may even become more enthusiastic about learning new things in the process; harness this cheerful attitude to open doors that you never knew existed and see where you end up. Meanwhile, you could pick up a valuable tidbit that inspires you to make a smart adjustment to your finances. Seize this moment to establish a new sense of security. 


Are you ready to strengthen your foundations, Pisces? At the start of this week, take a moment to refamiliarize yourself with your finances. This is a wonderful week to get started on a new budget that you can actually stick to. If you want to become wiser with your resources moving forward, meeting with advisors can also help you better direct your actions and eliminate some of the guesswork. Don’t hesitate to seek advice from your loved ones this weekend either. They could have some valuable words of wisdom that will help you hold yourself accountable.
