Wait a few days to see what the sociable Libra full moon on the 13th brought to the table. Now that Mars is in Cancer, the water sign most concerned with the care and feeding of the needy, any number of gut-wrenching incidents might occur. Early Easter morning vocal Mercury crosses into crusading Aries where it'll raise a ruckus until Cinco de Mayo. However, a supportive trine between the sun and regenerative Pluto during Sunday brunch may be strong enough to heal a rift in the family. Rest up on Monday because Tuesday's action could catch you unawares. The Venus-Uranus merger in Pisces indicates a routine change of heart and/or a round of kinky sex. The Mercury-Mars square, more to argue about. Solar Taurus begins Wednesday night, and on Thursday the rewarding trine between lucky Venus and even luckier Jupiter this year favors the water signs.
Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
Is it possible that the pen really is mightier than the sword? You'll find out after witty, wordy Mercury enters Aries on Easter Sunday. Take a few days to see if you can mount a verbal assault as easily, as effectively as you can cut through the crap you're being fed. Acid tends to flow when your Mars ruler is in Cancer, the sign of the stomach. If you have a grievance against a family member, the landlord or a local chef, don't hesitate to express how you feel. In practically no time, Mercury and constructive Saturn will work out a mutually satisfactory solution.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
It cannot be emphasized enough: This is the week your Venus ruler comes through for you. Not only is the goddess floating through Pisces, the sign of her exaltation which is where she often does the most good, she is also approaching Uranus, the planet of erotic surprises. As well as brilliant ideas, inventive, interesting people and no nerds. The piece de resistance: a beneficial trine between Venus and Jupiter, the bearers of good fortune and glad tidings set for the 20th, but likely to smile on you a few days earlier or later.
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
While your Mercury ruler travels through Aries, you could have more in common with the ambitious Ram who is pushing you to go for your latest career objective, be it a major account or your boss' throat. That a significant reward arrives much sooner than anyone anticipates may be a result of Saturn in your Leo money house forming a favorable trine to Mercury on the 20th. Since Saturn, even though it's in flashy Leo, is basically conservative, the payoff might be an offer that's been a long time in the making, not that huge raise.
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
Having incisive Mars in your sign cuts two ways. If you need to assert your independence, the Warrior will justify your reason for taking matters into your own hands. But swift Martian action can turn inward, so you might wind up hurting yourself. Why not use this infusion of courage to have dental work, a tummy tuck or a facial peel? After the red planet moves onto Leo on June 3, it'll be another two years before Mars comes around to Cancer again. Or you could focus on the loving vibe Venus is sending to lucky Jupiter in your house of romance.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
Once your sun ruler crosses into Taurus, the sign governing your career zone, you may become even more achievement-oriented. Ah, the sweet, seductive smell of success. Although Lions are usually not as tenacious as bulldogs, both fixed signs have a tendency to gnaw on their cherished bones til the bitter end. Consider this a veiled warning about the impending challenge due to arrive when the productive Taurus sun squares restrictive Saturn in your sign on the 24th. No lazy leonine excuses and no pulling rank.
Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
Gear up, hunker down, and prepare for the surprise that's about to be sprung. Having magnetic Venus in your Pisces house of partners could draw another attractive, friendly face to your intimate circle. However, when Venus meets unpredictable, easily upset Uranus, there's no telling what'll happen or which way the cookie you covet will crumble. Their conjunction is an annual affair, so try to remember how you handled a similar situation around the same time last year. Venus goes on to make amends by offering a chance to win more than you'll lose.
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
You might pull a coup of some kind when your appreciative Venus ruler joins innovative Uranus, not unlike snatching the prize from a co-worker's outstretched hand. Happily no bad feelings ensue, simply shock and awe at such a smooth move. The financial reward arrives a few days later when Venus supports expansive Jupiter in your Scorpio house of assets and income. If there's a high-stakes card game or a visit to the track in the works, go for it. You might not be this lucky at love or another game of chance for quite some time to come.1
