There is no sign in the Zodiac as dynamic, impulsive and jam-packed with energy like the fire sign of Aries.
They are always happy to say it like it is and love to be first and foremost in any activity.
When an Aries gets bored, which they seem to do often, they are willing and able to create controversy that frequently includes a battle of the wits. Aries often wins.
This fire sign lives for excitement; it is best to keep an Aries entertained. Otherwise, they will create their own excitement and say with a smile “the devil made me do it.”
If you like life in the slow lane, it would be a good idea to steer clear of anyone born this week. They love the fast lane and do their best to live life in the very fastest of the lanes.
People born this week: Elle MacPherson, March 29, 1964; Paul Reiser, March 30, 1957; former Vice President Al Gore, March 31, 1948; Joe Francis, April 1, 1973; Amanda Bynes, April 3, 1986; Paris Jackson, April 3, 1998; Jenny Garth, April 4, 1972.
In case you are a long-range planner, the next Mercury retrograde period will start early in the morning on June 7, when Mercury is in Cancer, and end on July 1 when Mercury is in Gemini. There will be a lunar eclipse at the time of the full moon on April 15 and there will be a solar eclipse at the new moon on April 29. There also will be the impact of a Cardinal Cross involving Pluto in Capricorn, Mars in Libra, Jupiter in Cancer and Uranus in Aries in mid-April. This will be felt by everyone.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) Look at this upcoming week as a period for gathering data to bring you to your ultimate goal. We all know you are working toward an improved financial picture. Just remember, planning is part of the overall success of your future status. With that in mind, complete the agenda first. Once that is done you are on your way.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Be gentle with yourself now and follow your dream. Once you achieve your final goal, all of your pals will admire you and your accomplishments. Knowing this should force you closer to your goal. An old friend is certainly willing to help but you must ask. The lesson here is humility. So ask and be happy.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Some plain and simple self-analysis would do you a world of good. So get yourself in tune with some time alone. Once you spend alone time, then get out and about. After taking the leap of faith, expect to meet some new pals. You need a new challenge to keep you happy and alert. No more doing the same old thing.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) This is no time for moods or pouting. It is time to put on your best face and get out there where the glamorous people hang out. You need a new outlook and if you start, you will get quick results. The results will make you very happy because you will be seen by people you really like.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) This week try mingling with important people who you really like and they like you. Then you will gain the confidence you really need and be able to accomplish exactly what you want. To ignore the opportunity headed your way is not wise. So pick up the pieces of your last conquest and move on.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) One of your admirers won’t turn out as you think. Try paying as much attention to your business life as you do to your love life and your changes for a big advancement will double. In the meantime venture forward with caution and a smile. It will pay off well.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) A new relationship could happen in the wake of your lively process of releasing some old-fashioned attitudes. You will find a new world of brilliant open-minded friendships. Within a month you will be a new person with all kinds of new ventures. Both you and your pals are headed down a new road.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Your old way of living your life is done and now you are on a journey to a more meaningful existence. Try taking a few trusted friends with you but if they won’t come, then make the trip alone. You are in the line of big success, the likes of which you never thought possible.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) In your busy life take time to really understand that each person we allow into our lives is a teacher. All we have to do is remain in the silence. That means no talking. Reflection needs stillness. So be still and listen. A new love is waiting for you to catch up on the lessons of life.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) As you work to get to the top of the heap, leave your past behind you. Otherwise you will find yourself in the middle of a mess you will have to repair. You are coming into a time period of luck and liberty. So take advantage of it by gaining more money and power.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) One way to learn is to get involved and stay until it’s over. You have been known to leave early in the past. Now stay. A new name in your crowd could be someone of interest. To discover who it is, stay alert and alive. No leaving early. Look for a good news call or text late next week.
Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) A simple yes or no could bring you a new outlook on your old life. So consider what it is you really want in your future and how you want to play the game. Avoid any kind of deception that others could suggest. This is no time for an unwholesome journey. You need to be totally honest in all you do.
