ARIES (March 21 to April 20): April is a good time for you to start fresh on some projects, since the new moon in your sign, on the first of the month, energizes you. Set 10 goals for yourself: a mix of short- and long-term dreams and desires. A Leo dreams of and desires “you.”
TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): Mars in your travel sector is giving you the push to hit the road yet again. It’s an inspiring time for you to explore different cultures. You may become an expert chef who specializes in a foreign cuisine that makes your mouth water. A Sag is already drooling over you.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21): You may have to put yourself on call for a friend in need in April. Someone else’s high drama could set your nerves on edge. Learn a lesson from your pal’s crisis, so you don’t have to go through it yourself later. A Scorpio wants to teach you some things about your psyche – and your body.
CANCER (June 22 to July 22): Jupiter’s transit through your money house gives you financial rewards through your hard work. But look ahead to the fall, winter, and next spring. That’s when you’ll have to carry the ball all the way by yourself. Don’t rely solely on good fortune. A Gemini wants to rely on you.
LEO (July 23 to August 22): Uranus finally moves off your back and helps you to get the real security you desire in your love life. With this erratic but well-meaning planet so close to Venus during April, you may at last get a commitment from the Taurus of your dreams.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22): Mars in your fifth house brings your creative talents and your maternal abilities together. You’re the mommy of the house and all of the divas combined – live! A Cancer wants to be your baby.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22): You’re able to get whatever you want in your love life, but you’ll have to ask for it. The stars are teaching you a lesson about direct communication, and so is an Aquarius. Give shame and repression a rest.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21): Your co-ruler Mars transits your ultra-social third house in April and brings you closer to a half dozen people you’ve been scoping for business and pleasure since last year. Make your moves, darling, but with a light touch. A Capricorn needs to be coaxed out of her shell.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21): People don’t know what to expect from you in April, and you like it that way. Keep an Aries guessing about your sexual desires. But be straightforward on the job front. The boss needs to know your bottom line.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19): Uranus is at the beginning of a long journey through your house of communication. You can do something out of this world with your writing – something that helps you to create a meaningful place for yourself in the world. A Pisces wants to stand by your side.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18): Mars is transiting your house of the past, which means that old loves could pop up for one last bite at the apple. Don’t be smug about a Libra’s affection for you. You could fall hard this time!
PISCES (February 19 to March 20): Uranus and Venus hook up in your sign and push you to get a little more experimental in your love life. Just do something different, Pisces! Break a pattern. A Virgo wants to play a new scene with you. So write the script.
