Horoscope - April 2008

Fight Mars Urges

Sherryl Nova

Now, in Cancer, Mars promotes a tendency toward emotionally reactive patterns, food cravings, and excessive sleeping. Fast food and sweets are drugs du jour. Combat negative Mars by quality time at home with family and early-to-bed, early-to-rise habits.

Horoscope - AriesAries (March 21-April 19)
Heed inner urgings to drop out this month as Mars favors wholesome foods and extra bed rest. Tackle a domestic chore long overdue; the relief of accomplishment will be sweet. Spend these next weeks working on a personal promotional campaign that enhances your image.

Horoscope - TaurusTaurus (April 20-May 20)
Invest in your car and communication equipment now, as there are deals to be had. You’ll realize the perfection of timing as a significant purchase immediately pays off. A new, more competent level of production will show a profit or promotion by month’s end. Tend to business.

Horoscope - GeminiGemini (May 21-June 20)
Networking skills dominate. You are able to do a friend a huge favor. Don’t expect good from a particular source. Know your needs will be met; let it go. Best friends are your unseen forces now. Instead of expectations, cultivate aspirations. Neighbors and siblings demand attention.

Horoscope - CancerCancer (June 21-July 22)
Crabs are extra sensitive this month, storing all that tension in the gut. Psychic impressions don’t have to be painful. Let go of the burden of the woes of others with frequent baths and meditations. Friends are a source of extra funding. Invest in yourself.

Horoscope - LeoLeo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Though ideas come at lightning speed, you will have to slow down and take these lectures to lab. If applied, will concepts prove to be viable? It’s not the time for vanity. If you are flattered by praise or favors, be aware that you are being seduced and will be soon abandoned.

Horoscope - VirgoVirgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Sometimes the simplest molehills are looming mountains — one step forward and two back. This is a time of challenge to new objectives. Maybe you have gone too far too fast. Every theory must be proven, and that will take months. Fresh speculation is promising.

Horoscope - LibraLibra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
A close associate has been giving 110 percent in recent months, attempting to convince you of an equality in your alliance. This will necessitate a redefining of the relationship as it qualifies for the term “partnership.” You are being wooed, but is it by an eligible entity? Decide.

Horoscope - ScorpioScorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Screaming deficiencies in the work of vendors makes you realize it’s time for a few changes. My mother used to say, “Better a devil you know than one you don’t.” That’s faulty metaphysical thinking. Much better odds lie in creating space for a new experience. Expect the best.

Horoscope - SagittariusSagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You are so deep in subconscious maneuverings that you are likely to utter personal ponderings to total strangers. While you are usually more comfortable in relationships based on sports and joking, intimacy needs rear their little heads; and you may scare folks. Take time off.

Horoscope - CapricornCapricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Jupiter loves you this year, and for once you can count on a windfall that wasn’t won the hard way. But luck has been a long time coming; as you have prepared, you will reap. You will be diminished if you take on the wrong responsibilities. Do for yourself and you do better for others.

Horoscope - AquariusAquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Energy carriers have problems sleeping. It’s hard to turn off the most multitasking of brains. Spiritual traits are your ace in the hole this year. How are you at forgiveness, serenity, acceptance, vision, and inspiration? Make these emotional skills your friends. Breathe.

Horoscope - PiscesPisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Leadership skills will lead to viable financial inroads. Responsibility for the success of a group lies in your half-formed goals. When in doubt, act as if your instincts are stronger than your decisions. Project the confidence of a strong belief in the greater good. Expect a miracle.
