There is no one as exciting as an Aries. Adventure is the name of the game as far as this fire sign is concerned. You have a brilliant mind and it never rests.

You love thinking up new adventures and the more daring they are, the happier you are. With Uranus, Mars and Venus now in Aries you might just decide to take off on a new journey.

There will be change coming – you just can’t avoid it. And most of the time change makes Aries happy.

So anyone born this week might want to stop and think, instead of making any move without thinking long and hard about it.

Aries are well-known for starting ventures and then wondering how it happened. An Aries needs to learn to slow down a little and stay with a project until it is finished.


People born this week: Agnetha Faltskog of ABBA, April 5, 1950; Peyton Roi List, April 6, 1998; Russell Crowe, April 7, 1964; Taylor Kitsch, April 8, 1981; Kristen Stewart, April 9, 1990; Steven Segal, April 10, 1952; Ethel Kennedy, April 11, 1928; David Letterman, April 12, 1947.


Best time of day on the best day this week would be the early morning on Thursday, April 11. Since the new moon is the day before, Wednesday, April 10, it pinpoints a great day of new starts. Mars remains in Aries until April 20 when it moves into Taurus.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) Life should be jumping for you about now. If it isn’t, you need to stir up some excitement and get moving. With both Mars and Venus in Aries you should be in line for one of those glamorous adventures you often find yourself involved in. Don’t let another day pass without making a move.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) The more control you are able to maintain this week the happier you will be. This is no time to ignore your needs; make sure they are met. If you don’t take over, you will end up with your life out of control. That is one adventure you don’t like. So get busy.

Family Ties, Struggles and a Taste of Ireland

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) This is the time to follow your heart and make some changes if that is what you are contemplating. No more waiting for a BFF to make decisions. You should be the one to start the ball rolling and let your pals follow you. It is time to let go of the past and be happy doing what makes you smile.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Some of your old pals have to go if you want to make it in the marketplace. Just waste less time on nonsense and spend more time on your success. No more talking and wondering what to do. You are smart and you know what needs doing for you to get where you want to go.

Leo (July 21 to August 20) The more you let go of the control of a few personal issues the more you will feel in charge. You need to make some moves now, but make them without the usual drama. If you can do, that there is no question about your success in every situation you are now facing.

Virgo (August 21 to September 20) Take just a little time this week to discover what it is you are really working for and how to do more work in less time. Once you understand that kind of living and working, you will get more done and make more money. In the meantime, try paying attention to your top career goals.

Libra (September 21 to October 20) Take a good hard, long look at your relationships now and see if anything needs repair. If you discover a need, it would be wise to get busy now and work on the necessary revisions. Otherwise you will find yourself in unnecessary conflict.

Garden Clippings: Bus Trips, Community Garden Plots

Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) Prepare yourself for a new look at an old task. Do the work now so you won’t be surprised if your latest expectations are not met. After all, the next full moon on April 25 happens to include a lunar eclipse in Scorpio. This will bring new opportunities to you. So get ready early.

Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20 ) This is a time of reflection on your latest quest for a life change. In your effort to reach your goal, it would be wise to avoid getting involved with any outside ventures. Plan to stay with a single idea and you will end up with the answers you want.

Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) Don’t give up now. Just let life happen around you and make sure you give your share. If you follow that rule, you will get your share within weeks. Do this journey alone and then the top prize will be all yours. Get ready for the next chapter in your personal success story.

Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) You may find some of your interests of the past are now a bore. The best thing for you to do now would be not to do anything. Just wait and life will take care of the situation and you won’t have to lift a finger. That is the easy and mature way to handle the situation.

Pisces (February 21 to March 20) A good pal will come to your aid shortly to help you in your latest situation. Trust the universe and know your present venture will work to your benefit. Expect to hear from a pal who will give you some good advice. Don’t go it alone. You have plenty who would like to help.
