There is no zodiac sign as stubborn as the fixed sign of Taurus. They are bright, usually serene and patient, and involved with their families. Taurus enjoys working in a garden, they like living in the country, being close to nature and they love collecting.

A Taurus also likes material possessions. The more they have, the more they want. They like to save money, so they are naturally drawn to bargains.

Anything material draws the attention of the Venus-ruled Taurus. They enjoy art, theater and movies. Above all, they like having their own way. Taurus knows they have a temper and so they avoid confrontations as much as possible.

If a Taurus decides on a cause it is a big challenge to change their minds. They have a constitutional need to be right about everything.


People born this week: Mark Volman, April 19, 1947; Adolph Hitler, April 20, 1889; Tony Danza, April 21, 1957; Jack Nicholson, April 22, 1937; Shirley Temple, April 23, 1928; Kelly Clarkson, April 24, 1982; Al Pacino, April 25, 1940; and Channing Tatum, April 26, 1980.


In the days before the full moon on Thursday, April 25, tears and tempers could flare. Then add a lunar eclipse and you are sure to be facing an argument – unless you are really patient and keep your mouth shut. Best day this week would be Monday, April 29.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) Your new outlook on life should carry you through this week – unless you really enjoy the chaos that follows your outspoken opinions. If you don’t want trouble now, then be smart and don’t voice opinions too loudly. Remind yourself that if you say too much now, you will end up wrong.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) If you want to hook into the magical times about to come up for you and your friends, then stay calm. Also, try being a little flexible and letting others voice their opinions on what is going on. If you make too many demands, you will be on the outside looking in.

Ronnie Spector and the Ronettes Return to Red Bank

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) If you have a favorite project now, say so and then let it go. Others are aware of what you are trying to do. They will help out but, if you come on too strong, there will be trouble. It is up to you to change direction and take on a new role as you try to sell your new ideas.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) The lunar eclipse in Scorpio on Thursday could bring you the answers you are searching for now. If your emotions stop boiling over and you play calm, the games around you will end. So put on a happy face, expect the best to happen and it will. Life will glow – just let it.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) The possibility of added responsibility looms before you. Grab it with both hands and run. After all, Saturn in Scorpio will force more discipline on you. So knowing that bit of information, start thinking exactly what you want to do with your new role. It is time for a new direction and you will love it.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Your new life will start paying off within days. Plan your next move and don’t look back. You have handled some serious situations in your life with great glee and now it will start to pay off. Life – both at home and work – is improving as you organize. A new friend could bring in some spice.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Your people-pleasing ways should pay off. Expect some surprise moves in your social circle that will bring a smile to your face. This is no time to pick a fight with anyone. It is time to agree and smile as you move on to bigger and better duties. This is a time for you to settle down.

Family Ties, Struggles and a Taste of Ireland

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Dealing with Saturn in Scorpio can sometimes be a challenge, but with your wisdom how can you miss? The more discipline you add to your personal agenda, the more success you will have in the near future. Also check your physical self by watching your diet.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Your life will take on a new glow as you move forward by letting go of the past. An old pastime may once again become important to you. So don’t close any doors too tightly. It is hard to open something once it is completely closed.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Spend some time reflecting on where you want to go from here. After all, you are in line for some new experiences via the influence of Pluto, which promises transformation. It is time to take up your cause. No one else can do what needs doing except you. So get busy.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) You should be well on your way to a new adventure and, if you are not, then start moving. You have wasted enough time poking around. Just think of all the time you waste giving advice that no one really wants. That is an area that needs some work. The time to start is right now.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) You have your work cut out for you right now. So stop looking around for something to do and start on the projects right at your feet. Be careful who you ask to join your venture because some pals tend to slow you down. That is the last thing you need now.
