SUNDAY, APRIL 1, 2018 Tangled Rings of Saturn
Now Saturn’s rings have tangled; storms of Jupiter have quelled.
And not a scientist around knows how the sycamores of Venus were felled.
Into a universe revealed as an expanding swimming pool,
And I’m a drop! And you’re a drop!
And life is but an April fool!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). To go to the next level, you’re going to need an insider secret or two. So how does an outsider get insider secrets? By becoming an insider, of course. Your genuine interest in others will be the key that unlocks this door.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s not always like this, but for today it’s better to ask “why” instead of “what.” The answer will give you much-needed insight into the motivation of others and the inner workings of things.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re well aware of how much looks matter to the presentation of your work, your ideas and yourself. You’ll put on the polish, and it will pay you over many times.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can be as good, correct, wellmannered and amenable as they come, but if you deny your own need for pleasure, self-expression and ego gratification, it will eventually demand its day.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Evidence suggests that human ancestors were walking upright 6 million years ago, though there is some scientific debate as to why. Today you’ll do something just to become a bit “taller,” and it will stick.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Share a few details about yourself. It will get the conversation going, and you’ll find out pretty quickly whose interests are likely to connect with your own.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People need people. Speaking of which, you’ll need a little more loving care than usual today, and your nearest and dearest are in the mood to provide it, too, if only you let them know how you’re really feeling.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ve taken on much bigger challenges than this. The only difference is that you knew what you were getting into back there and this one is pretty much sprung on you. No matter. You can handle it. 21).
SAGITTARIUS ( Nov.up 22- Dec.) The compassion wells in you when you’re around those who need it. The seemingly (and usually) selfsufficient will be the ones who need your love the most.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As luck is on your side today, a rather arbitrary action could set off a most fortuitous string of events. You could say that it’s past karma swinging back around, but really, it’s just your turn.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). While there’s growth in discomfort, there’s also discomfort in discomfort. When you expect this (and expect the worst about it), you’ll be in a good position to push past minor impediments and develop in your desired direction.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The old habits have served you well, but it’s time for something new. It’s not too late to take up a new interest; in fact, your timing has never been better.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 1). Though context is important, it’s the out-of-context and off-thewall things you do that jolt your life into a fascinating place. Not overly concerned with the opinions of others, you’ll make remarkable progress on the passions dearest to you. There’s a windfall in July. A key relationship gives you new goals and purposes. Taurus and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 39, 8, 10, 3 and 45.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Although Easter is a religious and culture-based holiday, it is also a cosmic-based holiday, scheduled each year by the moon. It just so happens that this year, the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox falls on another first, the first of April. It’s a rare happenstance of scheduling that is certain to produce some gag Easter eggs and perhaps a few Easter bonnets that do something more than keep off the sun. Let your creativity go wild.
Mars and Saturn will come together in Capricorn to make us more aware than usual of our time, its value and the ways in which we might spend it more efficiently. And though most people don’t set out to do unpleasant and unnecessary things, there will be even shorter tolerance for people and activities that don’t add to our lives in immediate and obvious ways.
Mercury gets into the MarsSaturn dynamics midweek. The need for efficient systems has never been greater. Set yourself up with helpful structures that will make it easy for you to take the right steps again and again. It’s a fine week to answer the following question: If your life is your factory, what does it produce?
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Aries Susan Boyle holds a Guinness World Record for having the fastest-selling debut album by a female artist in the U.K. Boyle’s considerable talent and astonishing success broke boundaries and opened the minds of music marketers everywhere. Having natal sun and Venus in Aries indicates deep wells of passion and strength. Having Mercury in Pisces makes for a soulful communicator.
