People born this week are not actually born on the cusp of Aries and Taurus, but there will still be a more serious Taurus touch to their personalities.
The controversial nature of the Aries will certainly show, but there will be a more practical side to the person born now.
Leadership, outspokenness and risk-taking will still dominate their personality, but there can also be heavy concern about finances and home life in this Aries birthday person.
But the volatile nature of Aries will win out and they will want to lead, be first in any line and speak their minds. They think quickly and move even quicker.
An Aries often starts a project, gets bored and never finishes the job. This is a natural way of life for a fire sign, while the fixed sign Taurus will stay with projects until they are totally and completely done.
People born this week: Ed O’Neill, April 12, 1946; Rick Schroder April 13, 1970; Sarah Jessica Geller, April 14, 1977; Elizabeth Montgomery, April 15, 1933; Ellen Barkin, April 16, 1955; Victoria Beckham, April 17, 1974; Conan O’Brien, April 18, 1963; Kate Hudson, April 19, 1979.
If you are waiting for the new moon, then the wait is just about over; it will happen just minutes after midnight on Saturday and it will be in Taurus. There’s no better time to start projects at home, in your love life or whatever. The skies will be in your favor on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Mike Wallace died on Sunday and he just missed his 94th birthday. He was a Taurus born on May 9, 1918.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) Here we are with a new moon on Saturday and you’re just waiting for some changes to spring up.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) If your life has not seen some real improvement then you are barking up the wrong tree.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Some might say you are a walking time bomb just waiting to explode. You need to adjust your lifestyle and flow with the tide. No more nonsense, no excuses – just get moving in a more rewarding direction and you will love the changes you make. An old friend could help keep you in tip-top shape and happy as a lark.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) If you are off to see the wizard and discover some memories from your past you are on target. Don’t let anything or anyone stand in your way.

Libra (September 21 to October 20) There may have been one situation after another in the past months that looked like a challenge, but you have managed to pull it all together. This is good and if you just keep moving along within months you will be living closer to the easy life. Don’t slow down now.
Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) Life should be looking brighter now as you pull things together and start living your dream. It is time to remember that when one door closes another one opens. You are in tune and should stay there with a big smile and an even bigger bankroll. Keep up the fast pace life. It is good.
Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) Your unique personality can help you win any game you decide to play.

Don’t lose your cool and keep your mind on the game.
Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) Try keeping communication lines open to everyone, or you are going to lose the chance to make a ton of money.

Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) Organize your own agenda and let others do the same. The era of overextending yourself has come to an end. There could be a new pal in your future and, if you let him, he will change things for you. The time has come to get serious about changing your thinking. You need some positive reinforcement.
Pisces (February 21 to March 20) Sudden flashes of consciousness will bring you into an entirely new climate if you let it. Set some high goals for yourself and others and then stick to them. This could be an extremely healthy time of life for you. Move on to the next challenge. You will win.
