STARS & SIGNS
HOROSCOPE READINGS FOR THE MONTH AHEAD
ARIES MARCH 21–APRIL 20
If you can agree to disagree with others near the 4th, you’ll be able to find solutions for charged issues after Mercury turns direct on the 15th. You’re feeling driven and revved up, and there really is a great deal you can accomplish. Jupiter’s presence in Scorpio accents the importance of research and detective work, and whatever occurs near the 25th will challenge you not to take no for an answer but to persist and stick to your plans and convictions.
TAURUS APRIL 21–MAY 21
The good news is that Venus in your sign sweetens the tricky planetary mix this month, so dare to hope for the best. And although some personal and professional issues may be keeping you awake at night, what you should focus on are your contacts and connections. The last few days of the month offer opportunities to reach new understandings and establish the kind of rapport you have hoped for.
GEMINI MAY 22–JUNE 21
If others seem particularly irritable this month, try not to go there yourself. With Mercury out of sync until the 15th, issues—particularly financial ones—won’t find easy solutions. At least the new Moon of the 16th sheds light on confusing predicaments involving friends and associates, and with Saturn turning direct on the 18th, you’ll begin to see what steps you need to take to get on a more secure path.
CANCER JUNE 22–JULY 22
Partners and associates aren’t seeing eye to eye with you as April kicks off, and their intractable behavior is bound to get on your nerves. Focus on developments near the 7th: With the new Moon of the 16th happening at the zenith of your chart, this is the right time for startups and new plans—despite what others may think. Your social life, at least, promises to be a delightful diversion.
LEO JULY 23–AUGUST 23
You appear to be caught up in debates that aren’t likely to be easily resolved. While your travel angle is brightly illumined by the Sun until the 20th, and distant spots may beckon, you also seem to be focused on projects that are intensely engrossing. After the 15th you’ll be able to get a firmer grasp on your affairs, and the emotionally charged full Moon of the 30th is about strengthening ties that bind.
VIRGO AUGUST 24–SEPTEMBER 23
Whatever occurs near the 4th, your aspects indicate that the best course is to reserve judgment. With Jupiter now in the most mentally acute angle of your chart, your outlook is expanding, and you’re right to explore new angles and possibilities. The new Moon of the 16th is a signal to focus on joint ventures and new arrangements, and with Venus on the rise you’ll begin to attract more attention all around.
LIBRA SEPTEMBER 24–OCTOBER 23
Someone appears to be giving you a hard time this month, and as much as you prefer to avoid discord, it won’t be possible. Brutally frank discussions are the only way to clear up charged issues, but fortunate aspects throughout April involving your ruler, Venus, indicate that you’ll be able to gain the upper hand. Whatever occurs near the 17th indicates that you’re on the right track and your fortunes are on the rise.
SCORPIO OCTOBER 24–NOVEMBER 22
With blissful Venus beautifully aspected in your relationship angle, you, more than others, should be able to dodge the bullets when nasty planetary configurations arise near the 5th and the 11th. Work-related choices won’t become clear until after the 15th, and some kind of uncertainty will lift off once Saturn changes direction on the 18th. Agreements reached near the 29th are worth a celebration.
SAGITTARIUS NOVEMBER 23–DECEMBER 21
Be ready to rethink projects early this month, as unforeseen complexities will throw you off course unless you take the time to scrutinize details. You do have promising aspects, though, and they’re all about being a diplomat and winning others over with logic. Startups you initiate near the 16th will prove inspiring and successful, and close relationships enter a happier phase on the 24th.
CAPRICORN DECEMBER 22–JANUARY 20
With aggressive Mars in your birth sign, your tendency to go on the attack could stir up issues—especially at home. Others may not agree with your agenda, but April is a time when friendships and creative ventures will lift your spirits and your prospects. Changes in your personal life are going to set you on a new path near the 16th, and whatever occurs at month’s end opens up new worlds.
AQUARIUS JANUARY 21–FEBRUARY 19
You seem to be grappling with hard choices and fighting with yourself as April kicks off. Whatever reservations you may have, take as much time as you need to finally decide. With Venus at the nadir of your chart, close relationships are going to be in the stellar spotlight in the best possible way. It’s all about following your heart right now and not letting negative thoughts sabotage your interests.
PISCES FEBRUARY 20–MARCH 20
Your plans may be in a bit of a tailspin as April gets underway. If friends and associates are behaving badly, blame it on Mars and Saturn and try to steer clear. Making conciliatory gestures near the 7th will turn the tide, and though the clouds won’t entirely lift, you’ll get encouraging signals that all will come right in the end. Any agreements reached near the 29th will prove highly beneficial.
