The dizzying array of retrograde planets - Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury - will make our April foolishly unpredictable. The fates hurl us from luck to loss and back again. Stay cool, wear a helmet and go with the cosmic flow.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Your natural outspokenness may get you into a bit of trouble, Aries. But don’t let the fear of talking out of turn dissuade you from making your point. Just be aware that both business and pleasurable relationships could be altered or broken by some misspoken words or unclear thoughts. Maybe you should let your actions speak louder than your words now.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
If you think folks are talking about you behind your back, you could be right. But it is the smart and clever Taurean that holds back from any reaction or over-reaction at this time. In fact your partners could be planning a huge, happy surprise for you. Or not. Stay tuned with your ear to the ground and your careful silence speaking volumes.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
While your social life can hit a high point now, you may find that your plans and discussions with pals can hit a few road blocks. The thing is, Gemini, that what you say may not match what you do. This can lead to confusion and frustration. Maybe it is better to let your friends make all the plans. You can merrily roll along and just enjoy.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Examine your career plans. Readjust your expectations and deal with any relationship fall-out from any rash and emotional decisions. Cancers sometimes expect perfection but the world is not always perfect. Looks at your prospects with a clear cold eye and be prepared to compromise. It will all work out eventually and you will wind up on top.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos with itchy paws may want to escape their routine and find excitement across the world. Great! But let someone else do the planning for you. Any itinerary your create may have some missing elements or miscommunication now. And there are a few things you need to handle closer to home. Get everything in the right order and then vamoose.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Do the words of love escape you, Virgo? Something off handed that you whisper to lovers could cause great upheavals in your romantic life. You may over promise or you may say things that are misconstrued, Instead of trying to explain what your really mean, it might be better to use your mouth for better things than just flapping the air, if you get what I mean...
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Avoid discussing sensitive subjects with family members for a little while longer, Libra. You are running high on emotions and may say something that you really don’t mean. Same too for any heated discussions with partners, especially regarding money and your wild spendthrift habits. You can spoil them later. But keep things cool right now.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
It may be difficult to prioritize all of your various work tasks, Scorpio. That is because you are too busy moving and grooving among the A-list crowd. Keep dancing but don’t be tempted to boss the course and push folks around. You could say that one thing too much that could push you down the alphabet. How good is your spelling...?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Your finances may need some attention, Sagittarius. But don’t do anything fiscally drastic. Spend with your head, not your heart. There are things brewing that can place you on an interesting, lucky and profitable course if you can tap into your creativity and manage short term expectations. That means no crazy parties ... unless someone else pays for them.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns with places to go and people to see will have to take a step back and focus on home and hearth. That means that some domestic issues will need your close and logical attention. Don’t jump to conclusions. Survey the landscape and wait for the right time to act. You may come off as calculating but careful calculations are what are needed at this time.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians are bold and beautiful and have a big mouth now. They have strong opinions that almost demand to be heard. Will you speak truth to power? It may impact your professional path. Will you complain to compadres? You may scuttle certain relationships. Remember that anything you say could be held against you. Hmm, and this is bad?
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
The world beckons and Pisces must heed the call. But if you are interested in swimming in larger waters, be sure that your plans cover any contingency. You might spend more than you anticipate. Or you might venture into groups of people who you would sooner avoid. Take all major travel plans one careful step at a time. Plan a May jaunt.
