My Stars: Aries is leaving the rest of us in the dust

aries sign

Aries (March 21-April 20): It’s rarely the case that you need to be coerced, cajoled, or compensated in some particular way to maneuver yourself into a leadership position, whether you are asked to assume it or not. In your eyes, the mantle is yours to claim. Alas, the stars are allowing this to be true. The rest of us are all left in the dust.

Taurus sign

Taurus (April 21-May 20): It’s never a good idea to count on those not yet hatched chickens to provide you with a financial cushion as you blithely saunter toward May; the troika of Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn is your own little chorus, urging you to throw caution to the wind. Can they be trusted?

Gemini sign

Gemini (May 21-June 20): While various reversals that you have experienced this year have certainly made for a skittish interaction with coworkers (or at least individuals who require a good deal of your focus), it seems that Saturn and Uranus have decided to assist you to find more sure footing for you with coping with them.

Cancer sign

Cancer (June 21-July 22): The planets have chosen one of the most trite phrases for you to keep for most in mind: Rome wasn’t built in a day. If you enjoy visiting urgent care, just continue with the hyper, scattershot approach you feel is the only way to get through the day. Rest assured, it is not, and there will always be the unfinished despite your best efforts.

Leo sign

Leo (July 23-August 22): Darling, I would assist, but there isn’t anyone available to shoulder your burdens or to spot you, while you’re leaping around, trying to see over the barrier that Venus, Saturn, and the Sun appear to be intent on erecting between you and your plans.

Virgo sign

Virgo (August 23-September 22): As accustomed as you are to being the catalyst that can make everything right and bring order out of chaos to the masses (at least in your own mind’s eye), it’s time to back off and find a different channel to direct that nervous energy into. Knit or something.

Libra sign

Libra (September 23-October 22): Planetary configurations that for other signs might portend a wasted spring, one that disappoints from dawn to dusk? For you, they provide a welcome shelter in which to contemplate and recuperate from coping with all the things that we are all dealing with. You’ve been granted the golden ticket.

Scorpio sign

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Dancing slippers might be the footwear that would most satisfy your heart of hearts as we maneuver into spring. Hopefully, they’re not the only thing that you have in the closet, as it appears the heavens above have other plans for you, which involve rain and require waterproof hikers to slog hither and yon under the Full Moon on April 23.

Sagittarius sign

Sagittarius (November 22-December 22): Looks like you’re in for rather a blustery bout of astrological “weather” as we move into May, the cross-currents buffering you being set in motion by your Moon being in opposition to Uranus and Jupiter. It’s vital for you to make everything secure that’s within your reach right now rather than pursuing new things.

Capricorn sign

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): While this part of the calendar leads off with April Fools’ Day, it is all the other signs who get played the fool, as you are made of sterner stuff, especially with your ruling planet, Saturn, making certain that you remain steadfast to your pursuits this season. While the others surrounding you might wish you to be entertaining for their benefit, you remain the only audience that is meaningful to you!

aquarius sign

Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Well, darling, I’m happy to inform you that it seems that the planets are conspiring to crack that candy shell that you seem to be hiding in. Your governing planet, Uranus, is not wielding the mallet that will bring you freedom, as it’s standing on the sidelines, allowing the Sun and Neptune to assist you to step into the light.

Pisces sign

Pisces (February 19-March 20): Mercury is pairing with Neptune as we move through the spring, each whispering little nothings in your ear, in support of you cutting loose and letting the rest of the world know what’s actually on your mind and sharing your informed opinions without hesitation.
