The spring is starting to wind up and there is plenty to do to prepare for summer. Thankfully the Sun enters practical Taurus to help out. Focus on areas of your life where you need a bit of power and a pinch of oomph. It is time to get the party started.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
If you have been a careful and thrifty Aries, this week will bring you a financial reward. If you have been a careless spendthrift who has squandered your wad on wasteful pastimes and undeserving party hounds, this week will teach you a stern fiscal lesson. Maybe that lesson is to live for today and let tomorrow take care of itself....? Oh keep dreaming!!
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
You are thrust into the center of any major social activity now. Are you ready for your close-up? Taureans are poised to make some important new contacts. First impressions are lasting impressions now. That means you should spruce up your appearance and dust off your wardrobe so you can impress. When in doubt, avoid wearing cellophane suits.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Expect to have a mellow yellow time. Seek enlightenment, seek spirituality and seek ways to unburden yourself of secrets and other psychological baggage that is holding you back. Geminis find opportunities to lie back and contemplate their navels. Even better, try to find opportunities to lie back and contemplate someone else’s navel.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Friends will play an important role in your day to day activities. Cancers find themselves involved in new social groups, grand movements or large influential organizations. Capture the group dynamic and make it work for you. Try to grab the reins of power and ride to the top of the heap. The real question will be, what type of heap?
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Whether you are fully employed or not, this week will open up some amazing (and possibly very lucrative) employment opportunities for you. Leos have been known to lie back, laze away and just delegate but don’t fall into that trap. Putting in a little effort now will have great pay off later through the summer. “How little is little?” you say.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos are in the mood for a fun filled jaunt. Get out of town! Not only will travel refresh you, you will also learn a few new tricks that you put to good use through out the next few weeks. For those who just can’t escape, try to explore new parts of town or some product, food or company that will give you an exotic charge. How exotic is up to you...
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
There is something in the air that makes all Libras especially alluring and sensual. You attract anyone you set your sights to attract. Why ask why? Whatever it is, maximize your sexual spark to the hilt. Make yourself available and see how much love you can create. Too too soon this urge passes and you will be back to phoning it in and dreaming about it.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
This is the time to review what you are seeking in a long term relationship. Scorpios who are currently involved may need to ask themselves if their needs are being met and if they are energized and complete. If so, find ways to make the bond stronger. If not, speak up! For those who are angling for a catch, try fishing in new watering holes and try new bait.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Sagittarians are ready to roll up their sleeves and focus on their job. Not a moment too soon! Suspicious bosses were starting to sniff around your desk, looking for any excuse to take action and cut back. Don’t panic. Hand them a kleenex and show them how you can tackle anything they throw at you. By the end of the summer you will throw it back at ‘em.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
If you are interested in trying something new and exciting, this is the week to experiment. Capricorns emerge as artistic geniuses and create something amazing and inspirational. Or, if the mood strikes you, plan and toss a fabulous party that will have them talking for weeks. Hurry before your muse wanders off to find other amusements.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
This is a good week to share your insights with worthy listeners. Knowledgeable Aquarians can expound on a variety of topics and find an outlet that gives them gravidas and power. You will be shocked when a simple, quiet idea finds and inflames an enormous global audience. Will you use your newly acquired influence for good or evil? Let’s just see...
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Attend to home based projects while you are focused and full of energy now. Pisces have let their domestic surroundings stagnate and now you need to buff, scrub or even move some pieces of furniture around. Make your home into a shining castle. Certain bossy family members may make their presence known. Better consider adding a moat and alligators.
