For week of April 11-17, 2002

For All Signs We are experiencing a major opposition of two planets, Saturn and Pluto. This aspect represents the economic recession. This trend began in April 2001 and will continue for another year, through the second quarter of 2003. Deflation is painful, but it is necessary and built into the human psyche. Otherwise we would expand ad infinitum. During such periods, we all must work harder and often with fewer resources. Difficulties such as these act as the spur, which drives us toward ingenuity and creativity. We will find ways to persevere in those areas of highest value, while letting the fluff go.

Aries Mars, your ruling planet, moves to fresh territory on the 13th and your attention shifts. During the next seven weeks, your activities and feelings will be intensified in the life sector related to vehicles, short distance travels, errands, communications, education, your neighborhood, and siblings. Use caution while driving because your accelerator foot may be a bit itchy.

Taurus You are more conscious now of concerns involving your intimate relationship, joint financial resources, and tax burdens. Although you feel a pressing need to do something about these issues, for the time being your circumstances may cause you to remain immobile. Beware of the temptation to turn these aggravations into one more item on your list of resentments. Your body may react.

Gemini Concentrate on being gentle with your self-talk this week. The Inner Critic is unusually loud and may turn on you or others. You may discover errors that need to be corrected, but this is not a justifiable cause to think nasty things about yourself. Near the 17th your attitude will lighten and you will find solutions to one or more financial concerns. Help is available if you are willing to ask or access it.

Cancer You may be feeling distracted by a desire to bring closure and make decisions at this time. The problem is that you just can't arrive at definite conclusions because each thing depends on something else, which depends on yet another thing. You might try creating a diagram or a mind-map of all the factors. Although you won't access definitive answers, it may help you cease running in circles.

Leo It may feel as though your usually upbeat energy is mired in 10,000 routine and business details this week. Everything seems to take more time than you expect. If you are traveling, allow time for delays. You may be working toward closure of a community or corporate project that you began last spring. Deadlines are just ahead.

Virgo You likely will enjoy a new piece of electrical equipment or learn a skill which will speed the process of routine work. Travel over the weekend is subject to interference and necessary adjustments to the original plan. Nuisance issues concerning family or property come to a favorable resolution as the week continues.

Libra The theme of the week is one of control within relationships. We don't always like what happens in a relationship and our temptation is to force issues in order to keep things stable. At this time, however, you know it is definitely unwise to make demands. If you press for control or if someone else is pushing you, it will only have the effect of generating distance and resentment.

Scorpio You will be concluding a cycle of several weeks at this time. Your attention will begin to shift toward issues of intimacy and partnership, joint and corporate financial matters, and/or estate and business planning for approximately seven weeks. The next two weeks in particular will be focused on health matters, searching for documentation of routine operations, and dealing with concerns about taxes.

Sagittarius This is a week in which you may feel overburdened by too much to do in too little time. Your physical body is temporarily subject to breakdown, probably due to emotional stress. Do what you can to lighten the load. Assistance in the routine workload, along with a brighter internal attitude, come your way as you approach the 17th.

Capricorn You may feel pressured by myriad nuisance details of organization at this time. You might just as well tackle them because they are not going away. Take your vitamins and concentrate on extra rest during this period. Your physical body is on a temporary low cycle. Your attitude is lightened by relationships to partners, lovers, and/or children.

Aquarius Activities involving high tech equipment, learning new skills, errands, communications, and education in general are favored this week. You could be feeling the pressure of upcoming deadlines on a creative, but practical, project begun last spring. Difficult issues with children are likely to be highlighted this week, but this is nothing new. Stick to your guns.

Pisces Communications of all types play an influential role on the activities of this week. Routine travel, educational activities, and learning practical skills are favored. Love life is positive and it is a good period to discuss future plans with your partner, siblings, or children. Give minimum attention to rumors or lurking worries. These are likely exaggerated beyond reality.
