astrology by Sara House Taurus (April 20 - May 20) : Happy Birthday! Can you feel the love? You should as friends and associates come out to pay homage to the rock steady you are. It’s a perfect time, with the warming weather and the dawn of a new personal year, for you to reposition yourself to take on the next chapter in the storybook of you. Gemini (May 21- June 21) : You are in dire need of some capital R&R. Remember to use both rest and relaxation in equal parts as they work best that way. Whatever swirly uncertainty clouds your vision now is better left alone until you can get your head on straight. Don’t make any sudden moves and take the time to fill your well. Cancer (June 22 - July 22) : It’s all about who you know in the coming weeks as you schmooze your way to advantageous situations. Keep tabs on your future plans and remember that those can shift but not losing sight is of the utmost importance. Sparkle and shine, turn it on all the timeyour charm that is. Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22) : You are ready for the world to recognize! All the hard work you’ve been laying down, is finally about to pick you up to new heights. From your elevated position you stand to garner all the kudos you’ve been waiting for. Continue to employ your same diligent work ethic because if it ain’t broke . . . Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) : It’s a never-ending journey for you. This month, the road ahead seems to lead in an unexpected direction and you find yourself traveling along with a sense of wide-eyed wonderment. Keep your mind open and receptive to all that occurs along the peripheral, you don’t want to miss a thing. Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) : Things seem to intensify as May unfolds, bringing with it a deeper understanding of everything happening right underneath your nose. Cued in to all the subtle nuances entwined within human interaction, you risk becoming too affected. Try to remember that being perceptive doesn’t necessitate nihilism. Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) : Keeping the balance is your charge for the next month as you seek out ways to get your harmony on. Dissatisfied with conflict to the point of illness, your first step is to take counsel. The exchange is worth more than you can imagine but the real trick is employing whatever advice you receive. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) : Work fills your plate to monumental proportions and the beginning of the month seems to suggest no end. Don’t be fooled, be focused. Use whatever resources at your disposal to attack on the annoying details and by mid-month you’re freed and headed for harmonious shores.
