Your weekly horoscope for April 28 to May 4, 2024, puts your love life under the cosmic microscope. You’ve got your rose-colored glasses on at the start of the week when Mars in Pisces meets with Neptune in Pisces on April 28. This planetary combo can inspire you to act in the name of love, but it can also increase your likelihood of missing red flags and playing the victim in your relationships.

Fortunately, Venus and Mars—both of which are associated with attraction and desire—are about to move through some of their favorite zodiac signs: Venus, planet of love, will enter Taurus on April 29 (where it will remain until May 23), and Mars, planet of motivation and libido, will enter fiery Aries (where it will stay until June 9).

While Venus in Taurus will bring your closest connections and your bank account, Mars in Aries will lend you the courage to go after what and whom you want

While Venus in Taurus will bring harmony, support, and compassion to your closest connections and your bank account, Mars in Aries will lend you the courage to go after what and whom you want. Which is all to say, sexy times are ahead for every sign's April 28 weekly horoscope.

Also on April 30, however, you’re tasked with confronting power dynamics, jealousy, or fixations in your relationships when Venus in Taurus squares off with transformative Pluto—planet of death and rebirth—in Aquarius. Your relationships are being tested, and you might get triggered, as Pluto encourages you to confront what’s been left unsaid.

Pluto then goes retrograde in Aquarius on May 2, bringing you back to January 20, when the planet first entered Aquarius this year. Similar themes and topics related to control, jealousy, or power might resurface. The week closes out with a burst of motivating, empowering energy when Pluto links up with Mars in Aries on May 3.

To get a closer look at what these cosmic shifts have in store for you, read on to find your zodiac sign’s weekly horoscope for April 28 to May 4, 2024 (and be sure to read for your sun sign and your rising sign for the most accurate forecast).
