FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 2017 Mars Moves in With the Twins
Mars moves into the sign of the twins, where delightful distractions abound, trends catch on and pursuits involve quite a bit of talking to sort out. This isn’t considered a particularly productive transit -- a bit like a visit from the mischievous Thing One and Thing Two of “The Cat in the Hat.” Still, there’s fun in the chaos and a lesson, as well. ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Recent stresses have you craving a little more reassurance that all is well. You may have to ask for it, as people will be so into their own parts of the story that they may not realize what others need and want. TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
In your mind, if relationships are a lot of work, it’s a sign that the fit isn’t good. Regardless, we can’t always choose with whom we’ll be interacting. Attaining new and better social skills will help matters greatly. GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
Meetings are on the agenda. They may not feel all that productive, but the point is to show up, see and be seen. This is about understanding the roles involved and the people who are going to play them. CANCER (June 22-July 22).
There’s a new project or person on your mind -- how exciting and irresistible! You are convinced that you are better off pursuing this than doing what you used to do for fun. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A little complaining between friends or colleagues can be a bonding experience, venting the bad energy and uniting the team. But constant complaining just compounds negativity. Steer clear of it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Love is not something you can talk yourself into or create with an intellectual exercise. You may feel that you (SET ITAL) should (END ITAL) love, but don’t force the issue. It just doesn’t work that way. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The day is marked by an increased sense of purpose. Perhaps this is because many will be affected by your work. As you act on behalf of the group, you find success. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Your vessel will be affected by the wind and currents, but you’re still ultimately the pilot of this ship. Grip the wheel and do your best with today’s stormy seas. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
The first step to restoring the peace in your world will have to do with temperance. Go easy; do the things that contribute to your health. If there’s a problem to clear up, you’ll have the strength for it today. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You’ve had the kind of life turning points that were unexpected and out of your control, but mostly change happens because you make it happen. And here you go again! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
It’s as though today pulls back the stage curtain just enough to give you a peek at what’s to come in a brandnew phase of your life. You’ll like
what you see. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
You’re not always your best counselor. In fact, you wouldn’t even make the top-10 list today. Listen to many opinions. Right now, you’re too close to (yet also, oddly, somewhat naive about) the subject. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 21). Wanting well is an art. You want the highest and best for all involved, not just yourself. The year is marked by an attitude of flexibility that will allow you to make the most of circumstances and use the energy available instead of fighting against it. New work comes in July. Romantic love plays out like a dream. Scorpio and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 50, 12, 14 and 32. WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST:
ARIES: You’re acting out of a sense of duty. Is there also a way to make yourself happy in this? TAURUS: Be bold. You might not get what you want, but you’ll have zero regrets. GEMINI: Rewarding relationships are based in the spirit of reciprocity. Don’t involve yourself with those who know how to take but not give. CANCER: You really don’t care where you go or what you do there, because the most important part of the equation is being able to spend time with the one you love. LEO: Take up your own cause. Fight for yourself. Justice will be served, but you have to be the one to get the ball rolling. VIRGO: You’ve very particular rules and ideas about love, and they’ll be challenged this weekend. LIBRA: Maybe another person cannot, technically, make you happy. But good relationships certainly help. SCORPIO: You’re no longer afraid to upset the apple cart. You’ll take action to get your needs met. SAGITTARIUS: It’s not too late to change the direction of a relationship. CAPRICORN: There’s someone close whom you can trust and confide in. This person won’t let you down. AQUARIUS: You don’t need anyone to tell you right from wrong, but it would be nice if someone could help make “right” more appealing. PISCES: Turbulent emotions muddy the water of your mind. Detach and let things settle, and soon you’ll see clearly again. COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND:
The Taurus sun reflects off the moon in Pisces this weekend, intensifying the attraction between this earth and-water combination. Venusruled Taurus will be very attracted to the poetic nature of Pisces and will find the fish’s powers of empathy intoxicating. Pisces will appreciate the stability and creature comforts that Taurus can provide and will quickly cast the bull as an emotional touchstone.
