No sign in the Zodiac loves the earth and the flowers more than Taurus. With their kind and loving care, gardens glow and bloom.

The Taurus born this week will be patient, but stubborn. They will be involved – for the most part – with the family, home, money and with nature.

A Taurus is also practical and hates to part with something. They stay with situations and with relationships until the bitter end. This is because of their practical nature. A Taurus often feels “I may need this someday. I had better hold on to it.”

So the Taurus can become a hoarder, saving everything and anything they get their hands on. Because of this side of their personality you can depend on this fixed sign to have photographs of weddings, anniversaries or birthday parties from long, long ago.

And last but not least, a Taurus has a temper if pushed to the limit of their patience. If you are capable of getting a Taurus mad – watch out.

People born this week: Renee Zellweger, April 26, 1969; Sheena Easton, April 27, 1959; Jessica Alba, April 28, 1981; Uma Thurman, April 29, 1970; Willie Nelson, April 30, 1933; Tim McGraw, May 1, 1967; David Beckham, May 2, 1975.

Next full moon will be on Saturday, May 5 in Scorpio. Plus there will be a solar eclipse on Sunday, May 20 when both the sun and moon are in Gemini. The emotional time of the month is coming up this week, so be ready.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) Energy should be boundless this week as Uranus remains in Aries causing major havoc if you let it. The answer is to remain calm no matter what is happening around you. A friend could propose a ridiculous project. It is up to you to do the thinking and say “No.”

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Sometimes it takes a mighty move to force action from a Taurus. But once this fixed sign decides on a direction they can’t be stopped. So pick up the pieces now and march forward. You have Jupiter and Mars both in good order and there can be no better time than now for a new direction.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Listen to the words of advice you are hearing now and your life will blossom. Otherwise you will be stuck in the backseat for way too long. You are trying to please too many people. Try pleasing yourself once in a while and you will find true success.

Leo (July 21 to August 20) This is no time to argue. It is a time for making things happen, which will improve your life. You have Uranus making a divine aspect to your sun sign. So take advantage of it and discover what it is you really want. A new BFF? Then start looking seriously. This is your week. Don‘t miss it.

Virgo (August 21 to September 20) If you are an early Virgo, born at the end of August, take advantage of the energy coming your way. Review your dreams and then get to work. To ignore this good period of time and energy would be foolish. A new friend could also help in your new future. You should be on a roll.

Libra (September 21 to October 20) Ignore any feeling of competition this week and stay with the team. You need the support of others now. Wait until you find your soul mate and then try the competition. Otherwise you will miss a great opportunity for advancement.

Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) Your waiting time should be over. It is the new moon and Mars has you all stirred up so move on. Have a plan and then make a few swift moves. You will have a great time once you get started. Make your contribution to the cause and also watch for a new BFF. There should be action.

Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) Whatever your present options may be now, believe you are headed to higher, wider places. Once you have resolved your present financial situation you will be headed towards real glory. Some new friends will be beneficial, so let them into your inner circle.

Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) No matter how cozy you may feel it would be wise to expect the unexpected. Just wrap yourself up in security and let life happen. You will love the results. The excitement will rattle you out of your long held status quo. You will love your future projects, which you never expected.

Pisces (February 21 to March 20) Take a backseat this week and let others run the show. Your turn in leadership will come and you will be glad you stepped back. This is no time to rattle your loved ones. It is time to be a soul mate and let others shine. Once you accept that role you will find yourself even more creative.
