Updated: April 23, 2014 8:00PM



April 6

All Signs

This week, Mars enters Aries where it will stay for the next 18 days. On Friday, fair Venus will line up with dreamy Neptune creating magical, romantic illusions for all of us. Yes, deluding yourself can get you in trouble, but it can be so much fun! (I’m Queen of Denial.) We continue to be smack dab in the middle of retrograde Mars, which takes place during March, April and May. This retrograde movement greatly softens a lot of aggression many of us have felt in various areas of our lives since November. Let’s see how this week unfolds. It’s a gentle week with a few scary moments, but hey — demons are a Ghoul’s best friend. Bwa-ha-ha-ha.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You will feel energetic, talkative and aggressive this week because the Sun, Mercury and Uranus are all in your sign. (Whoa Nellie!) Furthermore, on Tuesday the 8, your Sun will oppose your ruler Mars. Too much techno talk? Basically, this means you are strong, willful and eager to share your ideas with others even to the point of being Linda pushy. “Now hear this. Now hear this.” Your mind will jump from issue to issue plus you will want to get out and travel. Early in the week, disputes with a partner or friend might arise. By Friday, secret love affairs could leave you breathless. Who is surprised? You are such a romantic. (The swash-buckling hero and all that.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

So much is going on behind the scenes at this time. This could be because you are being secretive about something or perhaps developing a private project. Certainly, your ability to research anything for the next few weeks is excellent. Yay! At the beginning of the week, someone or something will oppose you at work. This challenge might also be health-related, fortunately, although intense, it will be a brief. By the end of the week, a friend could become a lover; or you might lend your efforts to a worthy cause or a charitable group with a mandate of helping those in need. Meanwhile, start planning what you want your “new” year (birthday to birthday) to be all about. Ideas?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a popular time for you! You’re enjoying interacting with others because not only is it fun, these exchanges are beneficial as well. (Oh yeah.) Talk to someone about what you want to achieve in the future because they will advise you, or team up with you, or help you in some way. Tell friends and contacts about your objectives. Meanwhile, back on the casting couch, some of you might develop a crush on your boss because it appears you will idealize someone in a position of authority in your life. Others might use this influence to spread good or help someone who needs assistance. Be patient on Tuesday because sports events, lovers’ spats and challenges with kids are possible. (Ouch.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

With the exception of Tuesday (which could be a day of conflict with family or hiccups at home) this continues to be a powerful, favorable time. Make the most of it! But do not blow your cool because you are high viz. People notice you, especially people in authority. Aside from this blip, people will listen to you because they admire you now. You appear confident and talented at whatever you do. (Just smile and take credit for this.) Late in the week, your appreciation of beauty is heightened and you will be inspired by lofty ideas, beautiful places or art. A chance to travel someplace special might be like a dream come true. Some will fall in love with someone from a different background or exotic culture.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You have a strong desire to reach out and grab more of life. You want some thrills! Travel is an obvious choice, if you can swing it. But you might also explore more of the world through study, meeting people from different backgrounds or exploring opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. On Tuesday, you might disagree with someone but this will pass quickly. (Especially if you drink a lot of water.) By the end of the week, your affections for someone are romantic and dreamy. Someone might even give you a gift or do a sweet favor for you. (Not surprising considering what a generous person you are.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your focus is on money, cash flow and earnings because you want to get your financial scene together. You might look for a better job or a way to make money on the side. You will talk to others about bills, taxes and shared property because this is on your mind so much. Your inspiration to solidify your financial base could be because a relationship inspires you. You want everything to be perfect and ideal. Naturally, practical considerations are part of the package because we always need to cover the basics, don’t we? That’s why you are in a two-year window where will you experience a job change or residential move. You can make this happen because you’re smart and willing to do what’s necessary.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You need more rest now because you are tired. Or perhaps your sleep patterns are interrupted. Don’t worry because this temporary drag lasts only for a few more weeks. Actually, Librans often have erratic sleep patterns, anyhow. (You know who you are.) However, something connected with your work will be rewarding in a sweet, gentle way. Someone might inspire you or vice versa, you might inspire them. For some, it could even be a work-related romance. With lucky Jupiter high in your chart now, your career is blessed, which is why you easily impress others. Kudos, promotions and praise will continue to come your way. What’s not to like?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You’re still keen to pull your act together, which is why you have an ambitious To Do list. You’re doing whatever you can to become more efficient at work, as well as better organized at home. (Yes, you want it all.) Travel opportunities and a chance to explore new avenues in publishing, the media or something related to medicine and the law exist for you and will continue for months ahead. Yay! Meanwhile, your love life is romantically delightful. Something seems to be too good to be true. Relations with children will also improve. You’re happier because vacations, the arts, sports and fun, social times are rewarding. How sweet it is.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a playful time for you! Lucky Sagittarians are on vacation and having fun. All of you will enjoy social times with others with sports, the arts, the hospitality industry and anything to do with the entertainment world. Romance could hit a speed bump on Tuesday, but this is temporary and brief. Something to do with your home and your family life seems wonderfully rewarding now. You might find your dream home or introduce a wonderful situation to where you live that you never thought was possible. This could also include an addition to your family that gratifies you. Meanwhile, you can benefit from the wealth of others because money and support from other sources is coming your way. Ka-ching!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Many of you are tackling home repairs or having family powwows about making changes at home or within the family. This could lead to challenges or quarrels around Tuesday, but it’s fleeting. (One hopes.) You have big plans, and being the perfectionist you are, you want to get all your ducks in a row. Later this week, relations with siblings, neighbors and daily contacts will delight you. You will discover just how much love there is in your daily surroundings. Who knew? This is a good week for those of you who write, sell, act, teach or promote because you can make money from your communications. Your words are like gold.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The daily pace of your days is accelerating with short trips, errands, writing projects and discussions with others. Busy! Challenges on Tuesday might be a concern. Stay mellow and keep your objective in mind. Because you have opportunities to improve your job or get a better job now, it’s not surprising that some of you are buying luxurious items late this week. Something elegant and special will tempt you to let a moth out of your wallet. If you don’t buy something beautiful, instead you might be inspired by new ways of making money — something you have always wanted to do.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Like Virgo, you are focused on money, cash flow, earnings, and at a deeper level, your basic values. You want to know what you should do to earn money and the same time, you want to make sure you’re putting your money on the right horse. You sense, rightly so, that you are about a year or two away from a career peak. Meanwhile, romance, vacations, playful times with children, the arts and chances to explore opportunities in the hospitality industry and the entertainment world abound. You feel so happy about something, you feel selfless and ready to help others. You are hopeful about making a dream come true. Something you had always visualized in your mind might now become a physical reality.
