Gentle and patient, but as stubborn as they come – that would sum up the Venus-ruled soul born this week. After all, there is no sign in the Zodiac as maternal, as stubborn or as determined as the Taurus.

Those born under the sign of Taurus tend to be good mothers. There are four fixed signs in the Zodiac: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, and Taurus is the winner when it comes to being fixed.

Once a Taurus mind is made up there is very little chance that it can be changed. So if you are in any kind of relationship with a Taurus it would be smart to agree with them.

This sign is also patient and practical. They love to collect and keep things and people. They seldom are the ones who end relationships.

Taurus loves the solid ground and so they can develop beautiful gardens and lovely homes.

People born this week: Frank Fontaine, April 19, 1920; Ryan O’Neal, April 20, 1941; Charles Grodin, April 21, 1935; Immanuel Kant, April 22, 1724; Halston, April 23,1932; Kelly Clarkson, April 24, 1982; Al Pacino, April 25, 1949; Bobby Rydell, April 26, 1942.

The sun and moon will be in Taurus on Saturday. The new moon this month also falls on Saturday, so there you are with an extremely practical day to start anew.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) As usual, this week promises to be hectic. If you are in line for a new romance this is a great time to be on the lookout. If you merely want a new job or a new BFF it is also a great time. The new moon will offer you some super opportunities to move forward with your life and your goals, so be busy.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Personal issues that need to be resolved are ready for your attention. This is a good time to decide your new direction. After all, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and good cheer, remains in Taurus. This offers you every opportunity to make things happen your way, so spend some time on solutions and then move.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Family ties are highlighted this week and if there is anything needing your attention the time is now. Either make a phone call or send a card; it really doesn’t matter how you connect as long as you make the move. A new BFF could also be in the your future, so make sure you pay attention and slow down a little.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Anyone interested in a relationship with you must first be a friend. So look around at your pals and decide exactly what you want to happen. Moving about could really increase your opportunities to find your life’s purpose. You need to stop floundering and start setting new goals.
Leo (July 21 to August 20) Avoid getting involved in a public battle with anyone. This is a time to take advantage of Uranus and discover who you really are and review your new direction. You don’t need to be aggressive this week, because life should start moving your way. A new BFF could turn out to be a loser, but you will be fine.

Virgo (August 21 to September 20) It is time to realize that the more you give the more you get, so everyone you have helped should turn up for payback. Of course, if you have not been helpful in the past, no one will turn up. Turn over a new leaf and start helping more than ever. You will see a return within weeks and you will be happy with the results.

Libra (September 21 to October 20) Teamwork at home and at work will pay off well this week. Get organized so you have plenty of time to devote to your established goals and it will pay off tenfold this week. You will see a massive improvement in your goals and your passion if you try some reorganization. The results will make you smile.

Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) Payback time is here and you should be smiling with the results. Making some wise moves has paid off well, so try to slow down a bit and let life cool off before you start chasing rainbows again. A possible lover may be acting slowly, but pay no attention. Just wait your turn. It will work if you are patient.

Extra! Extra! Newsies Comes to Town

Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) This is no time for you to force any issues, even if it appears it is time. As far as the planets are concerned, it is time to take it easy and wait. If you make life happen now you won’t like the end results, so slow down a little and be patient. Also, avoid arguments since this is not your time to win.

Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) You may not view your recent actions as control, but others involved look at it that way. If you want to win the game, change your tactics. If you can do that you will be the big winner. The money involved will all be yours or at least most of it, if you just change the game. You will become the good guy.

Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) If you are undecided about your new direction, then slow down and consider a change of goals. You should be trying new options and sometimes you have to try a few things before you find the right one. A new friend could be instrumental in your success, so share some of your ideas and good things will happen.

Pisces (February 21 to March 20) With Neptune in Pisces you could find yourself involved in helping situations. The perfect scenario would be aiding the sick, so if you are doing that life is perfect. It is also a time of romance and mystery, so take some time away from chores and enjoy the daydreams. Try appreciating your good works and keep smiling.
