Taurus The Bull (April 20-May 20)
This is a week of significant events because Mars, Mercury and Venus are entering your sign. Now is a time in which you need to clarify boundaries while at the same time showing your love for another. The next few weeks bring changes to your life and you must be willing to talk these over with a loved one.
For All Signs: We continue to experience the massive stellium of five planetary bodies in the sign of Aries that began near the spring equinox. This overweight group has been especially challenging to the cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Lurking health problems, particularly those related to the head and circulation, have made themselves known to many. Injuries have been common. Crises of all types have been widespread in the lives of a very large group of people. Individual panic over long-standing issues has been rampant, as people realize they can't stand "it" anymore. This week the weight of this stellium is reduced as Venus, Mercury and Mars move into Taurus. The pressure is on the downhill side now.
Aries: You have a desire to reach outward to others. You want to share ideas and express yourself in a larger framework. Circumstances on the romantic front are favorable. You are talkative beyond belief with anyone who shares your intellectual and political interests. Activities involving teaching/learning are favored, along with good aspects for travel.
Gemini: For much of this week you are in a gregarious and talkative mood. You want to reach out to friends and share ideas. Love, relationships, travel and social life are given a go signal. Toward the end of the week your attention may shift to persons and circumstances of the past. Follow up on your desire to get in touch.
Cancer: The positive aspects that were so prominent last week continue on through this period, too. You flow easily into and through a crowd. Everyone looks favorably upon you and your contributions in the world. Peers and co-workers are open and inviting. Love and social life augurs well.
Leo: You may be called upon to assist in a negotiation between two parties, each of whom is thoroughly entrenched in his/her position. This week you have a silver tongue and can actually help these factions arrive at a compromise. Do not allow their darkly serious attitudes to get under your skin. Remain optimistic about finding the right solution. Your leadership will be of great value.
Virgo: This is a wonderful time to connect with others at a very deep level. You and the "other" may be able to share as never before. Over the weekend your thoughts turn to matters of travel for pleasure. You might be making connections with people at a distance, i.e., over the Internet or by long distance.
Libra: Early in the week an opportunity to expand your social life brings smiles. You may be invited to a party or you might meet someone new. This aspect is from Venus, goddess of love and creativity. The muse may be at your side as you produce a particularly creative idea or solution to a problem.
Scorpio: Your significant other may be acting like a horse's patootie right now, but you don't have to follow suit and play in the same court. Neither of you is being served by sharp words and irritable behavior. "Prove it if you love me" is a game left over from the cave people. Leave it alone.
Sagittarius: You are veritably overflowing with ideas and enthusiasm and you want to share every one of them with a Significant Other. New things are happening that cause your creative juices to flow freely. It is all too easy to ignore practical realities, i.e., how much things cost. Watch your credit cards!
Capricorn: Someone in your life, perhaps a child or a lover, is speaking up for the need to play and take life less seriously. Maybe it is a voice on the inside of yourself. How ever this voice speaks, your first reaction is to stonewall and subdue it with excuses of how mandatory it is that you maintain control and cannot waste your time in play. You need some compromise here, lest your physical body break down.
Aquarius: You are concentrating attention on matters of serious concern related to business travel, ethical, religious, or legal issues, publishing, and/or education. You may feel as though you are walking a tightrope without a net. A distraction occurs this week concerning home, property or family that offers you perspective on what is really important.
Pisces: There may be something you have considered purchasing for a long time. Suddenly this week it seems the right time and you are ready to splurge. Love and social life are favored, along with educational activities and small trips. You are attracted to the arts and things of beauty now.
