My Stars for April and May of 2017

aries sign

Aries (Mar21-Apr20): There’s a certain seductive charm to your words and actions in April, which can easily persuade others to be “naughty.” This only intensifies in May, making you our Pied Piper of Mischief. Here we are, yours to lead to perdition (or satisfaction).

Taurus (Apr 21-May20): A more independent course of action opens up for you in April, your Moon being conjunct Uranus and Mercury. What holds back others is of no consequence to you. Being at the vanguard pays off big in May; you should consider running for office, or allow yourself to be appointed to one; you hold solutions in your grasp.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): To you falls the most dynamic arena among the signs this Spring. You have the knack of finding the easy path around obstacles where no one else can. It helps that your Moon is always conjunct Mars, and so a tireless, can-do outlook is supported.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): This spring may find you in the position of being your own best friend. Unfortunately, you and your bestie are not on good terms; rarely agreeing on a course of action, your co-dependency is holding you back. Try to expand your social circle.

Leo (July 23-Aug 22): Hopefully, you have been diligently putting aside cash and reserves of goodwill this year, as April throws up impediments to your forward progress through life. Keep a positive outlook behind the barricade Saturn is setting up for you; unexpected joys come from flailing against the blockage.

Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22): With Venus and Saturn retrograde this spring, and poorly aspected to your Moon April and May, it’s a good thing that your sign can tolerate delayed gratification. While emotional connections to others are dampened, you can be distracted from this by your career.

Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22): The inhibiting nature of Venus and Saturn being retrograde in April hits you harder than most, and you Moon being square to both planets lend a certain airless, claustrophobic note to your day-to-day activities; it feels like jury duty, frankly. This might be a good time to sort out closets, or catch up on your reading.

Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21): Your Full Moon in April (the first night of Passover) finds you yearning for liberation, and rebelling against, well, just about everything (but not too effectively). It’s better to bide your time, and plot (as you do so well) preparing to unleash an effective attack during the May 10th Full Moon, with a better chance of success.

Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21): While the more sensual aspects of your personality can shift in unexpected ways, as a rule, and this spring provides you an opportunity for more successful risk taking, than it does for any other sign. Jupiter, your ruling planet, may be retrograde, your Moon interacts with it in a way so that thrill seeking is on your mind.

Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19): It’s a good thing for you that Saturn is your ruling planet. While for most of us, the impediments set up by so many planets being retrograde right now are a trial, they are, for you, just increments or distance markers, showing what progress you have made. Let things unfold in their own time.

Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18): For you, everything seems to be going on deep under the surface of your day to day life, so deep as to be imperceptible. In addition to the inertia most of us are experiencing, Mercury is square in your Moon every time it swings into your sign, bringing communication with others to a standstill. Eventually, everything will come to the surface.

Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20): April finds you in the best position to be the spokesperson for the rest of us, whether advocating in a court, contending with an employer, or negotiating a contract. Neptune, your ruling planet is conjunct (and occluded by) your Moon, on Earth Day. You can be a champion, if so desired.
