The combination of Aries and Taurus is the challenge of anyone born this week. Here we must combine the fire of Aries with the fixed mode of Taurus.
Aries wants and needs plenty of drama, while that is the last thing the practical and pragmatic Taurus wants in his/her life. Combining these needs gives us a birthday person with occasional moods to deal with in life.
Anyone celebrating a birthday in the next seven days will face the desire to be an action-oriented, practical person. The Aries often throws caution to the wind, while the Taurus seldom throws anything to the wind. Anyone born this week is listed as an Aries but there will always be that practical side to their nature that they will find hard to resolve.
People born this week: Vince Gill, April 12, 1957; Lyle Waggoner, April 13, 1935; Sarah Michelle Gellar, April 14, 1977; Emma Watson, April 15, 1990; Charlie Chaplin, April 16, 1889; Jennifer Garner, April 17, 1972; Kourtney Kardashian, April 18, 1979; James Franco, April 19, 1978.
You’re interested in getting things done with the best vibrations this week. Then plan your schedule around the hours of 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on next Tuesday, April 16. The moon will be in Cancer and it will feel good for new beginnings. There will be a lunar eclipse on the day of the full moon, April 25. Don’t plan big moves for that day.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) This is your week to say things you will later regret. To avoid that problem it might be smart to keep some of your opinions to yourself until next week. Then the heavens calm down and you are in a really good space. In the meantime there will be some new drama in your life.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Any time you start feeling others are thwarting you in any way, it might be wise to be gentle when telling them how you feel. A meeting of the minds with your pals is now necessary for you to go as far as you wish to go. So slow down just a little and cultivate an agenda for the future.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) If you happen to be looking for a long-term romance, now is the time to get serious and find someone who needs your kind of love. You are in a good space to move forward at work. So as Jupiter, the planet of expansion, moves through Gemini take advantage of it by getting out on the scene.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) The new moon this week offers an opportunity for new starts. That means if you would like to change some attitudes within your family, do the work now. Ignore the usual moods that moon sign people are known for and smile. Your reaction to certain situations is changing now.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) One of the biggest lessons now before you might be: Learn to take a backseat once in a while. Once you accomplish that, you can move forward and establish a base for your future work. Since you are a born leader you might consider taking on a new leadership role. It could happen soon.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Your focus on work now is a wise move. You need to rethink everything that you are now; doing so puts you in line for future advancement and more power. You are a hard worker and deserve to be in a bigger leadership role. So get into the proper position to move ahead.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) You may be faced with a few disappointments by people you once trusted, but keep looking forward. Know that it never pays to look back at what might have been. It is best to move on. A new relationship could become extremely important to you.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Get as much information as possible and then make the decision on your next step. The only answer you will accept with a smile is the one that overwhelmingly favors you. No more compromise. You have done enough and you know what needs to happen. Look for a delightful solution.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) The options you are now faced with offer a totally new insight into an old problem. All you need now is to make a move. The new moon this week offers you an opportunity to venture forth. You might be interested in a certain someone, but take it easy or it will interfere with your plans.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Your role as a go-getter should continue this week in the wake of the new moon. If you continue on your present path, there is every reason to believe you will succeed in your latest venture. So avoid distractions and keep your eye on the power prize.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) The best advice you can get this week is to continue on your journey of self-discovery. Never mind getting caught up in the negative. Remember, when we listen to nonsense, it blocks our creative energy. Look for a new bright friend that could become more than a friend if you let it happen.
Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) Being creative and full of energy will help you arrive at maximum success in your life. If you follow your heart now, you will end up at the top of the heap as the big winner. So avoid too much socializing and concentrate on doing your work.
