Five retrograde planets - Pluto, Jupiter, Mars and Mercury - rumble our world this April. Expect out of control actions, general mishaps and a host of craziness through the next few weeks. Life will certainly not be boring. But try not to become an April Fool!

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Your safe and predictable job may shift in its foundations, Aries. If you have been preparing for a change, this movement will feel comfortable and empowering. If you have been merely warming your seat, this may come as a big surprise. Whatever happens, the cosmos always gives you what you need, whether you agree or not. Let’s all now agree.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Any Taurean who decides to set off on a grand adventure will find one now. And it will be big, unexpected and possibly out of control. But you are up to whatever the fates deliver. The secret to your ultimate success is to proceed as cautiously as you can and maintain your practical sense of perspective. Then step out and grab the world by by the tail. Or is it your tail, Bull...?
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis find ingenious ways to turn their nest into a love nest. And why not? You are hotter than ever .. or at least you think so. And you have an insatiable appetite for love. Try to catch yourself in the mirror for a quick appraisal every so often to be sure that the sexy “look” you want is one that you have. Oops - is that spinach I see in your teeth?
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Honesty is always the best policy but now, if you want to clear the air in any important relationship, compassionately lie just a little bit. Partnerships are more volatile and emotional now and any seemingly innocent (and maybe even warranted) criticism will be blown out of proportion. Let your loving actions speak louder than your words now, Cancer.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Is your value system open to re-interpretation, Leo? Are you headed where you want to go? All these questions bubble up now and may make you feel a little lost or off track. But this is a mirage and not the true reality. The fact is that you are very much on course and know where you need to go. Let your worries wash over and off you. Then rubadub.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Anything you do or say, no matter how quiet and uncontroversial, will push you into the center of all of the attention. You have some great ideas but will need to carefully craft them for your audience before they go viral and out of control. There is no way you can remain anonymous, Virgo. So mark yourself in the mirror and prepare for your big entrance.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Expect some surprises around your house, Libra, as hidden things bubble up to the surface that might cause a slip. Could there be a broken pipe? Or a home renovation project running amok? Anything is possible. So if you have the opportunity to just relax and enjoy your surroundings, do so. Try to put off any big to-dos. Well, I guess you can try to do that....
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
You may think that you can be direct with friends now, but I say you should hold off on any tart commentary around them at this time. Scorpios are usually strategic and careful with their words. But now the planets conspire to put your foot in your mouth. Be nice, be caring and be quiet around pals. There is time to tell it like it is in the summer.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
As much as you may want to ramp up your career and make lots and lots more money, anything you try now may be much more trouble than it is worth. Maybe its because your career opportunities are changing and transforming. Sagittarians may need to take a close look at where they are to stay current with the times. Or maybe it is time to plan an early retirement...?
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns with a personal cause or gripe fight will find that their battleground goes international. Are you ready to go public with your grievances? If not, stay low and quiet while issues swirl around you and wait for a better time to pounce. Be strategic and careful. The people you meet now can benefit you in the future but you want to make the perfect first impression.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Your secret admirer could turn into a stalker. Well, maybe not that extreme but you may not know the impact you have on certain people. But there is nothing to worry about, Aquarius, as long as you are lovely to everyone and diplomatic among even surly critics. You may even be recruited to run for political office. In that case, run - in the other direction!
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Will you be tempted into a tempestuous affair with a close pal? It is probably not a good idea because anything involving relationships and friendships now could be a bumpy ride later on. Be jolly and fun filled, Pisces, but keep things light and airy. There is plenty of time to get serious and sexy later in the year. For now, be too cool for school.
