All signs should be focused on career and money matters this month. It's a good time to vault ahead or review your current situation. Focus on long term gains rather than immediate benefits, as these could actually cost more down the road. Concentrate by digging in, committing to your task fully without procrastination or avoidance. Be frugal right now. Free events can help cut down wasted entertainment expenses. Pay attention to areas of your life that seem stagnant. Change can be positive during this transitional window. Take advantage!
TAURUS – Brain Over Brawn
April 21 – May 20/21
This birthday month sees you striving ahead, damn the consequences. You might feel a bit invisible but don't worry, people are watching and observing your dogged determination. Your intellect will be razor sharp, so feed your brain with crosswords and mental puzzlers. Anything that needs solving will be your up your alley. Use your brain rather than your brawn in social situations. Avoid being obstinate or demanding. Any setbacks or obstacles should be treated like little life lessons instead of bad luck or hopelessness. You can apply what you learn later.
Put your brains to good use with Tours & Excursions.
GEMINI – Concentration
May 21/22 – June 21
Your ADD double persona can make concentration difficult for the Twins. This month can actually be good for focusing in on what matters most. Use this period well to reap the rewards. It might not be a bad idea to see how much your behavior changes when you stop multitasking and put all your energy into one goal at a time. While it may seem counterintuitive, you'll actually find yourself much further along than juggling five tasks at once (doing them half-assed to boot). The chattering inner dialogue will be a lot less distracting. Maybe your other Twin is just asleep?
Concentrate on Books & Readings.
CANCER – Finances
June 22 – July 22
Finances will be your primary concern this month. You'll have to deal with an unexpected expense or an old bill you thought had been paid or written off. Be frugal and reassess your expenditures. Put more money into your savings until you have the situation under control. Instead of splurging at a fancy restaurant, entertain friends with a home cooked meal. Shop at discount stores and take advantage of any sales for big ticket items. Enjoy the simpler things in life. The finer luxuries are too dear unless you can truly, and I mean actually, really afford them.
Save your money with Free Events.
LEO – Earth Shattering
July 23 – August 22/23
You'll have moments of clarity this month. Earth shattering realizations might make you feel a bit like Rip Van Winkle, emerging from a long sleep into an unrecognizable world. Use these startling shocks of awareness to fuel your ambition into overdrive. Aspects of your life that require change should be dealt with honestly and swiftly. Don't let these harsh realities bring you down or set you back from your current goals. Modify, adapt and rise to the challenges. Dealing with your issues could actually set you on a surer course of success and happiness.
Enjoy a good dram at the Theater.
VIRGO – Explore
August 23/24 – September 22/23
Spring fever will have you climbing the walls this month so get out and about—the more active, the better. A trip might just be the ticket, but keep it close to home until summer. You'd do well to stay at an exotic hotel for a night or two or explore a little known neighborhood for the day. Creature comforts won't be a high priority so you can be spontaneous and housesit for a friend or camp out at a divey motel. You'll have bouts of fierce independence, striking out on your own, but expect to crave an entourage for some of your wanderlust explorations. Go explore the city!
Explore Outdoor Markets.
LIBRA – Trust Your Assessments
September 23/24 – October 22/23
You'll need a consensus from others on just about everything from your underwear to your music playlists. Your insecurities could be the reason for double-guessing your first instincts. While it's okay to ask for advice, avoid being dependent on the opinions of those closest to you. Pay attention to your feelings and surroundings. Be observant and trust your assessments. When in doubt, consult with another but limit how needy you could be coming across when you're deciding between argyle or polka dots. Live with your choices and make them your own.
Trust your instincts with Music & Concerts.
SCORPIO – Devil May Care
October 23/24 – November 22
Anything exotic will attract your attention this month. Travel is strongly recommended, especially to a destination off the beaten path. You'll have a wide-eyed wonder to everything around you. Engage this childlike innocence with major aspects of your life, i.e. career, relationships, money. Any negative experiences right now will be fleeting so go big or stay at home. Take risks as the consequences will be slight. This devil may care attitude could actually go a long way in restoring your delicate self-confidence. It's essential to go out on a limb every once in awhile.
Be a devil at Nightlife.
SAGITTARIUS – Good Samaritan
November 23 – December 21/23
This month will see you as a Good Samaritan. Friends will lean on you for support and help. Listen and determine how involved you can reasonably invest in someone else's problems. An opportunity to assist could have the potential to lead to a profitable financial arrangement. Use your keen business sense in cost analysis situations. Don't let your heart overrule your head. Remain pragmatic instead of rushing forward like a white knight. Ask yourself hard questions. Is this person worthy? What can I gain/lose? Are you even in a position to render any kind of aid?
Treat a friend to Food & Wine Events.
CAPRICORN – Motivation
December 22/24 – January 20
The more you try to accomplish, the less you'll be able to succeed. This sounds counterintuitive, but you really can't expect to rush into every project and do well when juggling 10 different tasks. Although your confidence lends you an almost auto-pilot ability to navigate through any situation, you need to stick to half the amount you're dedicated to right now. Smooth talking and your solid work ethic can save you in the end, but is it really worth dancing on razor blades? Explore the reasons for why you feel the need to do more. What's your motivation? Fear?
Motivate yourself to Recreation.
AQUARIUS – Magnetism
January 21 – February 18
Last month's social magnetism is still a strong influence in the next few weeks. You'll be a bit more panicked though about your time and work-a-day responsibilities. It might require passing on free tickets to Coachella in order to stay focused on things you've let slide. Use this hotbed of friendly persuasion and charm for career pursuits and networking, as you could develop some strong allies that will propel you forward by the end of this year. Be flexible and adjust to others. It isn't all about you and your schedule, AQ! Compromise when necessary to maintain harmony.
Use your magnetism at Fundraisers.
PISCES – Bite Your Tongue
February 19 – March 20
Bite your tongue! Consider your tone of voice in communications, especially with colleagues. You could be coming across too harsh and judgmental. A good opportunity is on the line. You may not know it just yet, but you never will if your personality is too prickly. Avoid assumptions. A shock relating to your home environment will send you reeling. Adjust but come up with a couple of fallback plans just in case. Your need for security may complicate negotiations and personal relationships. Do make lemonade out of lemons but don't forget to add some sugar.
Bite down at Restaurants & Cafes.
ARIES – Budgeting & Savings
March 21 – April 20
This month will be about budgeting and finances. You're doing okay by treading water, but you could also be doing a lot better with the right amount of fat trim and savings know-how. Be mindful of how much you're spending, especially on frivolous items. Where your money goes can reveal what matters most to you. Reduce your expenditures by finding what you can live without—it might amaze you! Quit a bad habit or cut back and see your account balance grow. You'll be guilty of day dreaming quite a bit this month. Explore these flights of fancy right now.
