Taurus The Bull (April 19-May 19)
The sun returns "home" to your sign this week. You likely will find it to be energizing. Now is the time to focus on new plans for this next year of your life. Take a fresh look at where you want to direct your energy. It is appropriate that your attention be directed toward yourself right now.
For All Signs: Our most remote planet, Pluto, changed directions on April 10, moving into "retrograde" (backward) motion. This is actually an apparent shift, not literal, and it represents an alteration of viewpoint or shift in perspective on issues, which we may have thought were nearly decided. Pluto will remain retrograde until early August, and during this period we are given time to reassess values and facts before making final conclusions. From the celestial point of view, it is a brief moment of hesitation before a final plunge. Pluto's motion is related to vast power and social/political judgments that affect the masses. It is well for all of us that a period of hesitation precedes these decisions. The political machinery of the world is like a mighty locomotive; once set in motion it is hard to change directions.
Aries: Mercury has entered your sign and brings with him a bright new idea or opportunity. After a three-month siege of getting nowhere, this will feel like the breath of spring. You are looking for something that will give you greater freedom and this may be it.
Gemini: You are wide open to receive new experiences through friends or new group associations. Whatever your circumstances, you are in a position to be of help to others, and that will please you. You are witty and fun to be around this week.
Cancer: You are in a reasonably good place with yourself at this time. Your heart and mind are flowing together. You have no conflict between your feelings and your thoughts about those feelings. This is a time for reflection on important subjects. You can make good decisions now.
Leo: Your general attention is shifting for the next month into the arena of your career and overall life direction. Whatever you have created thus far will be noticed and perhaps applauded. As a talented leader, you may attract an invitation to manage an upcoming project.
Virgo: An issue of shared resources (time, money or energy) is on your plate as the week begins. You may feel you have no good solution. However, discuss this with your family and brainstorm for solutions as the week progresses. You likely will find a way through quickly.
Libra: This is not likely to be an eventful week because you have no new aspects. However, it is a good time for catch-up and to dig more deeply into your philosophy. Reflect on your ethics. Teaching, education, travel and legal projects should be smooth.
Scorpio: You have a sense of physical strength at this time that will be especially beneficial if you are exercising or in any type of competition. For the first time in weeks, circumstances concerning relationships are looking more positive. Now is a good time to look toward a meeting of minds.
Sagittarius: Your mind and heart are clearly in sync at this time. You are likely at peace with yourself. There is a solid and practical solution at hand, and you do not have to quarrel with yourself over it. Activities involving your children and/or other creative products of your being are favored. Love life flows smoothly.
Capricorn: This is a steady week for the Goats. You have a few balls in the air that are beginning to line up very well and will be bringing rewards over the next two to three weeks. So keep up the good work and move forward with your plans.
Aquarius: This is a great week for a getaway. Do something novel, even if you don't leave home. Your mind is open to whatever seems fresh and unique. A surprise may occur related to a roommate, neighbor or a sibling.
Pisces: New media or a renewed form of communication will bring refreshment to your daily life. Aspects favor adding a roommate or visiting with siblings. Short trips could be revitalizing. It seems you need greater exposure to the natural world.
