Weekly horoscope (April 11-18)

Aries is supercharged right now



Aries The Ram (March 20-April 19): This is the beginning of a fresh two year cycle in your relationships, whether business or personal. You are probably recommitting to a situation or letting one go so you can move forward.

For All Signs: The sign of Aries is supercharged right now. This has been in progress since April 3 and continues through April 14. Children born during this period will be extraordinarily active and highly charged with energy. Sun sign Aries, the Ram, is learning courage, honesty, and the strength to be oneself under any circumstances. An Aries will sometimes leap before looking, but maturity eventually teaches them to use more discernment.

Taurus: You have been traveling in a far-off land of disengagement with reality for a few weeks. On the 15th you will return to yourself and your present. Hopefully the recent weeks have refreshed your perspective and will give you a more clear sense of direction than you experienced in March.

Gemini: Paperwork or other details of your life are driving you nuts right now. Although the issues are absorbing a lot of your attention for the moment, remember that, "This too shall pass." Nothing lasts forever and most things eventually resolve or evaporate.

Cancer: You may not be feeling quite comfortable with yourself this week. It appears your mind is in conflict with your feelings. Do the best you can to deal with this issue up front, perhaps by journaling or discussing it with a friend. Keep in mind that it is not a mandate for you to settle on a decision right now.

Leo: You need to get out and about this week. Restlessness and high energy want you to keep on moving. Apply heavy muscle to exercise or a chore that needs to be done. Otherwise your adrenaline may cause you to become snappy and liable to pick a fight.

Virgo: You are caught between what you should do and what you want to do. The routine is safe, but also boring. Your mind may play tricks on you and you could be easily distracted. This is not a good time to do work that requires discipline with details. You are feeling independent, so you may want more alone time than is the norm.

Libra: Relationship issues are intense during this time. You are more than a little bit willing to meet your partner's needs. It is possible that you will go overboard, forgetting that you are one side of the equation. Enjoy the romance of a new start in relationship, but don't sell the farm.

Scorpio: You are struggling with a pull between the need for change and your desire to maintain worldly security. The ideal solution is one that generates creative change without totally annihilating stability. It is possible that you are breaking free of a relationship that has held you in place far too long.

Sagittarius: You may be starting a new romance this week. If not love, then your creative energy is strong and you have some good ideas. Some of you Archers will be developing fun plans for sharing good experiences with your children.

Capricorn: The planet Pluto is turning direct in your sign this week, after a five month retrograde period. You may be on the verge of starting something that you have considered for a long time. It is possible you have one or more secrets. Whatever has been happening on the inside is ready to be exposed to the outside.

Aquarius: In the fall of '07 you either took on much more responsibility in your career, or you let go of a worn out occupation and set yourself free. The issue continues. If you became liberated, you are now struggling to ground yourself. If you took on additional commitments, a part of you is screaming for relief.

Pisces: Experiences may seem surreal on some level during this week. You may be doing something you never thought you would do. Hold onto the awareness that you may be misinterpreting what happens. It is also possible that you are unconsciously applying a mask to suit the circumstances. If you feel disconnected, you must breathe yourself back to your center.
