Week of: Apr. 29- May 5
Mercury Retrograde on Friday the 3rd
Aries [3/23-4/20]: How are things going at the Old Salt Mine these days, dear Aries friend? Bit rough on you? There is some nice energy floating along a little later in the week, and you will find a welcome relief as Mars moves out of your sign. The need to "get it done with it" is over. That Martian urge is relaxed a little as your ruler moves on into a sedate sign, Taurus. Concentrate on "pretty" at work.
Taurus [4/21-5/22]: I'm telling you, you have the best of possible configurations for a birthday this week as Mars makes a grand entrance into your sign. Along with the hot headed planet comes a sense of urgency: birthday parties are going to go "swimmingly" well, if you give it all a chance to unfold according to a cosmic time table. Tired of astrologer riddles? Have party, but find some one else to drive -- that's sound advice.
Gemini [5/23-6/21]: You should be in an enviable position this week -- even better, for the rest of the week, you have a greater appreciation of beauty and art, and you might even like opera. That's where some barrel chested babes belt out songs in a foreign language, you know. This merely highlights what is going on deep within you: communicate those innermost feelings and sense of appreciation this week. It will help you along your diverse paths.
Cancer [6/22-7/22]: Oh dear me. Oh dear. Oh. Relationship woes are on the horizon again, for you, dear Cancer. Sorry about that. You might find yourself examining your romance in terms of how it affects your work performance. Because you are a water sign, too, you have to be careful that you do not allow the work/romance issue to cloud your judgment. Really. Trust me. I am a professional.
Leo [7/23-8/23]: The only problem you Leo's have this week reside in an earlier sign in the zodiac: Taurus. Being a fixed sign also, Taurus tends to think that they are always right. Being a good Leo, you know you are right. But it's their birthday, so ACT like they are right. It's a just a phase of the stars right now, and it won't last for long. Just acquiesces to them, even if you rattles your cage a little.
Virgo [8/24-9/23]: some Virgo's think that I mercilessly pick on them because, as a rule, the sign tends to be too tidy, too neat, and too clean. It's really not true, it just appears that I pick on them. Now, this week, starts out with a good stuff and only gets better. You are fine shape at the beginning of the week, and this fine shape gets better and better as your normally pinched expression turns into a wide grin. There is much for Virgo's to smile about this week.
Libra [9/24-10/23]: Poor old Libra, always the stalwart in the face of adversity! Well, things are looking up. So I hope. Maybe. Just a little. There are those annoying loose ends which need to be tied up this week, and the romance department needs a little attention. But other than that, things ought to be pretty good. Really. Well, sort of. I dislike sounding like I'm hedging a little, but after the last round of email from Libra's, I'm hesitant to say anything definitive. Sort of.
Scorpio [10/24-11/23]: Maybe it's because I have, on occasion, been romantically linked with a Scorpio that makes me sensitive to their needs. Maybe it's because my own, dear sweet mother is a Scorpio is why I am sensitive to their needs. Maybe it's because I read all the painful email from Scorpio's that makes me sensitive to their needs. Or maybe it's JUST IN THE STARS, but you guys really need to lighten up a little this week. Relax. Chill out. Quit thinking about it. And don't call me, fax me, or email. At all. (Bubba's fax line is always open because the fax machine drinks truckstop coffee: 512/448-0970)
Sagittarius [11/24-12/21]: As a good Sagittarius, let me tell you: the last week wasn't that great. And things start out this week not looking that good, either. But wait, there's more. Much, much more! As the week draws to a close, there is a sudden change in attitude. No, there are no major events which are going to change you, but your way of looking at things gets much better. A little adjustment in attitude, as were. Fishing looks good this weekend.
Capricorn [12/22-1/20]: Poor old tired and abused Capricorn! Seems like everyone is picking on you this week. If it's not in the toilet at work, then it's your home life which seems to have disappeared down the proverbial drain. I warned you, didn't I? About the "too good to be true, get rich schemes"? Did you listen? Time to t take a break and figure out how to pull this one together -- I know you can.
Aquarius [1/21-2/18]: Ever work with cattle? Ever feel like you work with a people who behave like a herd? You might benefit from realizing that it's always possible to get the herd to move in a particular direction, like a cattle drive, but the cows themselves are probably not going to understand what all the fuss is about. Remember this as the week unfolds -- you might have problems educating a few people along the way.
Pisces [2/19-3/22]: After what you've been through, I would hate to even suggest that wedding was in order, but you will find that the idea of a wedding intrigues you. What would be even more intriguing is if it were YOUR wedding. Think about that one for a moment or two. Now consider this, dear Pisces friend, you are face to face with a situation which could lead to trip down the aisle. Do you dare take that first step?
