The Bull (April 20 -- May 19)
You have concerns at this time about older family members and/or aging property. Hopefully, you made the property repair last fall, after problems first appeared in the summer. At this point, the outcome is apparent. Your partner is a strong supporter during this period.
For All Signs Basic astrological knowledge is built from the four elements: fire, earth, air and water. The Air Signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) move constantly, like the wind. Even when their bodies appear to be still, the mind of an Air Sign is racing from one thing to another. The Airs are gregarious and work to develop their social skills early in life. It is, however, difficult for them to make commitments and they struggle in the world of emotions. Airs need help in this area and therefore are prone to attract Water Signs, who more naturally float in emotional pools.
Aries You are challenged at this time by a conflict between your sense of identity and your apparent direction in life. It is important for work, home and daily activities to reflect who we want to become. Have patience and work steadily.
Gemini Make note of who enters your life during this period. You are likely to have fortunate associations that are helpful with social connections and information. Your heart and mind are congruent now. Whatever you concentrate upon can materialize.
Cancer You have an uphill climb. Altering the trajectory of your life to match the direction you want to go is significant. There may be a disappointing experience this week, but its effects are temporary. Don't allow a setback to convince you to give up the struggle.
Leo The result of a project begun last summer is now apparent for all to see. Many Lions have dealt with relationship issues for a long time. At this point, you should be clear about whether your efforts are yielding the results you seek. If not, let go and let the Spirit have it.
Virgo Ask for what you need now, whether it is a loan, help with a project or extra time to finish something. Over the past 18 months, the universe has offered assistance to you. Now is again one of those times.
Libra Now is a time in which you must make good on your sense of responsibility to friends or groups with whom you belong. Activities related to co-workers and rental property are favored. The financial picture is showing signs of improvement.
Scorpio You have a need to move your body and be active. Love and social life are energized and the arts are highly favored. You have a desire to surround yourself with sunshine and beauty. Dieters and those on a budget, beware! You are inclined to self-indulgence right now.
Sagittarius You feel on top of the world this week. There are signs of hope and faith everywhere you turn. You may need the grounding of one who is not wearing rose-tinted glasses. Consult with such a person before making a significant decision.
Capricorn A project that began with difficulty in the summer is coming to fruition at this time. You can see the inevitable outcome and it probably has not yielded the result for which you hoped. But you may feel it has returned an acceptable value.
Aquarius Concentrate on keeping track of who owns which problem. Otherwise you could be hooked into spending your energy repairing something that is not yours. This is a good week for communications and getting out and about. Your reputation is given a boost.
Pisces You could be off on a happy travel adventure or planning one to come. You and a loved one are especially happy in your relationship at this time. Activities involving the law, publishing and the Internet are favored. One of your children may deal a disappointing blow. Don't let it interfere with your overall attitude.
