My Stars by Madame Zzaj, Romanian Queen of all Queens
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 20): Saturn has you boxed in. It is turning you into a bubbling, sputtering, seething pot, spewing money and gifts instead of steam, urged on by Jupiter sitting happily alongside your Moon. Mercury adds verbal dexterity, making you a most persuasive person. You will be seen as the pinnacle, a model raconteur.
Taurus (Apr 21-May 20): Yours is another sign for whom things are looking up. A renewed sense of self-worth and clear thinking comes after the New Moon in April. This continues all through May. Unlike your Aries friends, you have physical energy to spare. I expect that you will wake up daily, raring to go, with no time for the mundane.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): It’s a volatile spring for you. April has you going gangbusters! With your Moon sextile Mercury and conjunct Mars, it will seem that you have the strength of ten. May finds you overshooting the mark, trying too hard, making a nuisance of yourself. If they’re not interested, showering them with gifts and attention will not have the desired effect.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): Things feel jammed up, blocked, and otherwise at an impasse one day. Then you will have a clear path the next. Things are so changeable, you may get whiplash if you try to decide on a single way forward and attempt to stick to it. All that is consistent these next two months is your own self-assurance, whether a day it’s clear sailing or a day when all seems marsh and quicksand.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22): Palm Sunday sets a perfect stage for good things to come. For you, the Sun, Moon, and Jupiter trine each other. This combination is the acme of positivity. You should feel especially connected to the currents and influences surrounding you, and act upon your impressions in the best possible manner. But be mindful of not appearing to gloat at your good fortune. And beware there’s a tendency in the middle of May to feel too full of yourself which can reverse your April successes.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22): It just seems that you can’t get out of your own way. And struggling only makes it worse, rather like Frodo Baggins in the lair of Shelob. Not such a wonderful place to be. But remember, it all worked out in the end, more or less. This will be the case for you. I suggest, my dear Virgos, that the best way to come to May in good shape is to not struggle against the snares of April. During the month of May, time will dissolve those impediments on its own.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22): Things are not balanced in the middle of April. Your Moon will be in opposition to both Venus and Mercury. You might feel that your reasonable complaints are just noise being lost into the void. But still, you are inclined to persist. I caution you that the middle of May will find you utterly exhausted. Is that how you want to look, haggard, just as the weather gets nice? Find some distractions that will take your mind off the things you can’t manage.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21): The Full Moon in April has you a bit too full of yourself, being in opposition to both Uranus and the Sun. However, these aspects allow you to focus the stuff of your dreams into action. This implementation can be successful in May. But it won’t be easy and it won’t make you any friends or help you keep old ones. It is a hazard when the Moon is in opposition to Venus and Uranus.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21): April has you being a lover more than a fighter. Your Moon, on Easter, being trine Mercury and Venus. Lucky you! The general tendency these next two months is to support you being seen as this embraceable, supporting person. The Full Moon in May has you nervous but still the object of affection.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19): Saturn, your ruling planet, lends additional structure to your life, while it might seem to hem in other signs, particularly after it goes retrograde the end of April. For you folks, it’s a protective redoubt. Have fun insulting your enemies over the castle walls.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18): It seems that this spring won’t allow for you to enjoy financial success and new affection coming your way. It seems that the pursuit of one will hinder the pursuit of the other. The end of May, in particular, has you going off track, following the wrong financial pursuits.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20): April Fool’s Day is hardly foolish for you, rather an opening for success. But success will come by sticking to what you do best. Saturn, goes retrograde at the end of April, which closes off the pursuit of new avenues. Also, you’ll need to play smart, not hard, as Mars is square your Moon. It might be smart to pull the strings from the comfort of your lair.
