April 6 -- April 12, 2006


The Ram (March 20 -- April 19)

Your self-will is very strong and you may be charging right into a nest of snakes. This period may bring a showdown with authorities and they are unlikely to show mercy or give an inch. Use caution with vehicles and machinery of all kinds. You are prone to overshoot your mark.

For All Signs The four primary elements in astrological work are: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Their temperaments are similar to the substance after which they are named. The Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are warm, enthusiastic and outgoing. They need a lot of fuel and therefore are constantly on the search for something new to "feed" them. The fire signs are often unaware of the effects of their massive energy. Other signs sometimes must create boundaries in order to prevent the fire signs from absorbing all the resources and space in the vicinity. Fires often attract Earths to stabilize and center them.

Taurus Responsibilities toward home, family and property are interfering with your social pleasure this week. Sometimes the work just has to take priority. One of the major tasks of this year is to repair or replace outworn parts. This may even include replacement of body parts that carry you from one place to another.

Gemini All your verbal and physical activities will bear a mark of intensity now. You may be surprised when people seem to oppose you. You may not be aware of the passion in your tone of voice. It invites a quarrel because it is so vehement. Concentrate upon fair play in all endeavors.

Cancer Sometimes you do not know the source of your feelings. At this time you may be feeling that someone has taken advantage of your kind nature. You are so sensitive to the needs of others that sometimes you give when you have not been asked. When the donation is not recognized, you may feel abused.

Leo You have a significant goal for your future and the price of accomplishment is high. Make an effort to distinguish between genuine self-reflection and the demanding, exaggerating voice of critique that runs around your inner world.

Virgo Issues concerning partner may be dampening the mood of the week. He/she may be in a non-communicative frame of mind. When you do hear something, it sounds like criticism. Do not allow someone else's attitude or beliefs to run your life. You are not obliged to accept them.

Libra You may experience some physical discomfort due to environmental stressors at home or work. Your physical cycle is on a mild dip. Rest plenty and take your vitamins. You may need to take a temporary break in your workout regimen.

Scorpio Love life may be intensely creative, or it may just be intense and challenging. It depends on the foundation of trust in the relationship. This is a good time to be honest with each other. Sometimes your tone of voice sounds like judge, jury and executioner, especially if you feel threatened.

Sagittarius This is a time of significantly hard work. You are striving to show your strength to the Powers That Be. Do not attempt to gain control over others, but demonstrate the value of your product or ideas in a persuasive fashion.

Capricorn You will have to work to maintain a positive attitude during this period. If you feel fussy and negative, monitor your thoughts for useless obsessing. Focus attention on a mental project that requires concentration and self-discipline.

Aquarius There may be difficulties in communication with your significant other during this period. Mostly it is trivial and not worth your worrying energy. Tackle a project that requires your mental self-discipline. This will cause you to feel generally better and be more productive.

Pisces Work and "things" which must be done are likely to interfere with your fun and play this week. You have a temporary cyclic low, so make it a point to get more rest than is normally required. But don't let it change your overall mood.
