This spring, everything’s comin’ up roses for Pisces… and just Pisces

Pisces sign

by Madame Zzaj, Romanian Queen of All Queens

Pisces (February 19-March 20): In April, everything’s coming up roses, for you (and not us). You’re a bit of a coquette, and don’t worry about the effects you create and the forlorn in your wake. By May, you should actually be a star, as you claw your way to the top.

aries sign

Aries (March 21-April 20): Here you are, all ready to wrestle Spring, and all it offers, into submission (you may have even purchased a new singlet to engage in this endeavor). Sorry to say, while the Sun might be on your side, the Moon, when it swings into your corner, only provides somewhat tepid support from its interactions with the other planets. Count a draw as a victory, for a time.

Taurus sign

Taurus (April 21-May 20): Here we occupy your birthday season, hurrah! Venus, your ruler, seems otherwise engaged with other signs, leaving you less supervised. Jupiter, Uranus, and Mars take over, offering less self-doubt, and greater rewards. Best to take up their kind offers. The April New Moon favors you.

Gemini sign

Gemini (May 21-June 20): It seems you’ll be starting off racking your noggin for the correct things to say, to avoid a tricky situation. The problem, you see, is Saturn throttling your forward progress. And, you need to keep your wits about you, this all crops up again in May.

Cancer sign

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Hoping for an early start to picnic baskets and gingham tablecloths? Jupiter and Saturn favor you with diligence, and the rewards that follow. Neptune puts something of a damper on dreams, however. You might end up with a bowl of ramen on a checkered tabletop, running from task to task.

Leo sign

Leo (July 23-August 22): The best laid plans of mice and men oft times go astray, and all that. It seems that this should be, at least, embroidered on your pillows, as a constant reminder of your upcoming travails. Uranus has it in for you, bringing massive mood swings. Things aren’t as bad as they seem, but it’s a tough road.

Virgo sign

Virgo (August 23-September 22): Your communication skills need no improvement, rest assured. This is one of those times you’ll need to work overtime, explaining the same thing over and over. Perhaps soliciting outside assistance might allow you to be more effective.

“April showers, indeed. Will they bring May flowers, or a quagmire?

Libra sign

Libra (September 23-October 22): Try to set aside as much time as you are able, to deal with all the delays and petty hindrances you might encounter; April showers, indeed. Will they bring May flowers, or a quagmire? It seems you’ll be wearing hip boots to slog through it all.

Scorpio sign

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): The axis around which you revolve this Spring is a favorable one between Venus and Jupiter; your attachment to important things is the constant. This becomes a more defensive posture, as circumstances attempt to move you away from it all: hold fast, don’t panic, and avoid the impulsive.

Sagittarius sign

Sagittarius ( November 22-December 22): Wear sensible shoes, and pack light, as your itinerary seems quite exhausting. Saturn is making things difficult for so many signs this season; this includes you. Everything is more difficult than it ought to be, and provides less satisfaction.

Capricorn sign

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Saturn, your ruling planet, again bestows its favors on you, again, unlike most of us less fortunate signs. Mars strips your vigor, Neptune keeps you down to earth, but Saturn clears the slow, steady path for your success. Most of us glare as you pass by.

aquarius sign

Aquarius (January 20-February 18): “Journeys end in lovers meeting,” said the Bard; he wasn’t aware of “Dateline,” and other such shows. While you may hope for the former, the rose glasses you’re wearing let you drift more toward the latter. This is a time to trust friends’ impressions more than your own.
