Week Ahead Stars for Sunday, April 7th
A Mercury-Saturn link on your birthday means you cannot afford to be slapdash in your thinking or in what you do in the world. Know what you want, know where to get it and make sure you have the tools to do the job. Leave nothing to chance.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
You seem a bit out of step with those around you — and that fact should worry you. According to the planets there is very little chance that you've got it right and everyone else has got it wrong, so you need to look again at what you are doing.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
Exciting things are happening now and if you are travelling or socializing it's quite likely that someone you meet will color your outlook on life in a positive way. Whatever it is they teach you, make sure you then pass it on to other people.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
Someone you automatically think of as a friend has in fact been harboring a grudge and may turn against you this week. It won't be a pleasant experience but it will remind you that, ultimately, the only person you can ever trust completely is yourself.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23):
Something you found hard to say in the past will come easily to you over the next few days, and if others find it “controversial” well that's just too bad. However, try not to upset people in positions of power — chances are it won't go well for you.
LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):
If you don't feel like getting involved in some sort of social activity this week then by all means give it a miss. You are under no obligation to play silly games just to please other people, not even the people you love most in life.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):
You now recognize that you have been somewhat unrealistic about a project you thought would be a breeze. Don't give up on it though. It is still very much worth doing, so adjust your sights and resolve, this time, to put in the effort and the hours.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):
By all means be ambitious Libra but steer clear of being overly assertive, and certainly don't be aggressive. When dealing with people at home, at work and at play, let your natural charm do the work for you. People want to give you what you need.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):
Your confidence is sky-high at the moment, as is your popularity, and with a combination like that you cannot possibly fail. Let everyone know what you need, and when and where you need it, and they will go out of their way to make it happen.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):
If you attach too much importance to what other people tell you this week you could pay a rather steep price for it. Act on the assumption that you are hearing only half of what you need to know — then find out the other half.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):
Mercury, planet of communication and the mind, linked to Saturn, your ruler, means that you may need to put across a message that you suspect not everyone wants to hear. Say what you have to say anyway — they'll thank you for it one day.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):
The message of the stars for you this week Aquarius is that you need to make more time for yourself. You have been doing so many things for so many people that you seem to have forgotten that you have needs and desires too. Remind yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):
You are not a victim and you never will be a victim, so stop feeling sorry for yourself and get out into the world and make things happen. If there are circumstances and situations you don't much like then change them. Yes, it's really that simple.
