Happy birthday! This week brings out your inner rebel. Let her or him play wildly, without concern for others’ opinions. Let no one stand in your way as your independent spirit soars. This is not the week for commitments or long-term plans. Keep it light and simple. If you feel pressure by a special someone, assuage his or her fears of abandonment by taking a little preventative action. Flowers, gifts, or cards will keep any discussion of future at bay. In work, opportunities surface, though setbacks can occur. Give yourself permission to take a little extra time reaching decisions. You will want to verify all information and identify any potential challenges. Finally, this is a week to attend to any feelings of frustration and stress before they take over and consume you. Think peaceful mountain streams…and get out of town if you need a real break from the pressures of life.

This is a week to clear out your closets, let go of anything you no longer need, and focus on clearing space in your life for new beginnings. Give yourself a mental reset. Love is a definite highlight for you, and if you’re single, this week brings opportunities to connect with someone special, especially Saturday. Before you jump in headfirst, there are some psychological patterns that urge you to return to your center, make some adjustments to your psyche and subconscious, then step back out into your social life. When it comes to your children, pay attention to their behavior to see what you might be resisting in your own life. Are they pulling away from you? Perhaps the real issue is that you’re having a difficult time fully letting go. Be gentle with them and with yourself. Listen for cues about how to have a stronger communication with your family members, and open your heart wide to love unconditionally.

This week brings out your inner warrior. Will you be destructive? Or will you walk the way of the peaceful warrior? You can align to peace in conflictual situations without lying down and taking any shots fired your way. This week is a little intense for everyone, and you’ve got a little extra sense of invincibility. Therefore, you might be inclined to welcome conflict. Letting go can be so challenging! In business, Gemini, new opportunities come from out of the blue. They promise new beginnings. When it comes to love, your cylinders are all on fire. This is a great time to plan a romantic getaway.   

This week, you are exploring your personal identity and ideals. The best way to do this is to remain fluid, open, and accepting of others’ ideas, thoughts, and beliefs. That doesn’t mean you have to adopt anything that feels inauthentic. Rather, remain open and contemplate your truth in the midst of the external forces. Your appetite and pursuit of pleasure are at an all-time high this week. Indulge yourself in passion and delight. Espeically when it comes to love!

This week highlights your creativity. Turn off the TV, step away from Facebook and Twitter, and use your brilliant insights to produce something worth selling. You have everything you need to succeed. All of the tools are in your possession. Use your gifts and take your life to the next level. In your personal life, there are a few bumps in the road. Your loyalty enables you to stay when times get rough and not give up. That strategy will serve you in the long run when things turn around. Don't give up.

When everyone around you is stressed, you can sometimes be an energy sponge, absorbing emotions and thoughts that aren't yours. Do you need to take on others' worries and fears? No! Set up some friendly boundaries for yourself. Imagine yourself in a bubble of light, untouchable by any outside negativity. In work, you have focus for marketing your goals. Push yourself gently in the direction of your dreams. In love, ride the ups and downs. It could get exciting.

The Sun in your opposite sign can shed some light on those areas in your life that need a little reworking. Don't take any feedback as criticism, but do take it with a grain of salt. You are about to embark on a new venture. You need confidence in your  abilities. That comes easily when you turn inward and ignore the naysayers and outside critics. Hold your head high, and step into the light. As for love, this week offers a few new challenges, especially if you're in a relationship. Use your words carefully. Gracefully glide through any conflict.

When things heat up, astrologically, you tend to feel your power surge. Professionally, speak up for what you need and want, whether it's a raise or a new office. You can win all negotiations if you keep your own interests as your first priorities. In love, Scorpio, hold out for the right one, and resist the urge to settle. If you're in a relationship, be gentle with your partner. This week is intense!

Everyone else is struggling a bit this week, but you are excited about a new opportunity coming your way. Hang onto the possibilities. Step forward into your future. Your independent spirit will allow you to make travel plans, job changes, and moves, if you give yourself the freedom. It's you first. Think about how much more you will have to offer when your own needs are met. In love, this is a week of passion. It may not last forever, but it's a preview of romance to come.

As the Grand Cross heats up just before the astrological storm on April 15, you may feel some internal tension in your life. Hold on to your hats. It’s going to be a bumpy ride that will end in euphoric outbursts of success. Think of this as adventure time. There are so many hshifts, twists, and turns in your life. Practice radical flexibility and breathe deeply. Relationships and business partnerships offer opportunities and reward. Let yourself be vulnerable and ask for help. You might get what you want, need, and more. In love, remain open to all possibilities, and refrain from sabotaging a really good thing.

You have mastered a new skill or ability. Now, you stand at a pinnacle of your career, ready for the next challenge. This is a new Beginning with a capital B. Trust the miraculous flow of the Universe, and take that leap of faith. And this isn’t an April Fool’s joke. This is real. That thing you fear the most will be your greatest triumph. Steady yourself, take aim and jump. In love, Aquarius, relax a little, play a little, and enjoy deeper connections.


You have some stellar influences this week, Pisces, with Venus, the planet of love and relationships, entering your sign for the next 4 weeks. This is a time to connect with others, to network, and you might even meet a special someone who could change your life. If you feel restless about your career, trust in divine timing. Has it ever failed you before? Explore your creative side and take a trip to the theatre or museum. Travel plans come up out of the blue. This summer is shaping up to be quite exciting! Indulge your taste buds…and open your heart.
