FOR RELEASE: SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 2012
If you still haven't mastered the art of doing nothing, the day after the full moon is a fine time to start figuring it out. Fifteen minutes of absolute nothingness could bring a deeper sense of relaxation than you'd get from a whole weekend of fun and games. But it has to be truly nothing. No television or Internet. Just sitting in the sanctuary of silence.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes it's lonely at the top, but you don't really mind because there is so much that's enjoyable there. Besides, you've worked so hard to get where you are. You can always remedy the situation by reaching out to friends.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can handle the truth — almost any truth — when it's presented in a non-emotional manner. It's the feelings that make facts difficult to process sometimes.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're getting a certain reputation with yourself. What you think about you is the only opinion that really matters today, as any other opinions aren't likely to affect you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Center yourself. If you don't know how, it's worth learning, because there's much to gain from being in a solid place internally. For starters, you'll be able to correctly assess your situation and make a winning play.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like money because it buys you the freedom to arrange your life the way you want it. Without funding, less is possible. Seek financial aid to broaden your horizons.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You feel ready to take things to the next level. Don't try to convince another person to feel the same. Act like they already do feel the same, and it will just happen naturally.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll feel better for getting something off of your chest. Whether it should go in your diary or you should actually tell the other person, well, that depends on what you're trying to accomplish. Which way is most selfless?
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Whatever you do, your instinct is to do it with style. This may take more money, time and effort than you originally wanted to give. However, you'll go forward anyway and later be glad you did.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Beware of trying to manage your feelings. Trying to feel what you think you should feel isn't going to work. When you let your true feelings flow and accept them, other impulses such as grace and love will emerge.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your heart is not exactly overrun with joy, but it is pretty full, and you have much love to give.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may feel guilty for seeking happiness when there is so much need and pain in the world. But you owe it to the ones who are suffering to experience all the joy you possibly can.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It's been said that laugher is a form of exercise for your insides — like jogging. Your sense of humor will be going strong, so share it. Everyone around you needs this kind of "workout."
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 7). This year turns up your creativity and drive. By April's end, a new project consumes your energy and gives back tenfold. You'll have the attention of major players in May. In June, friends lead you to different work. A trip in October helps financial prospects. The most romantic months will be July and December. Gemini and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 2, 34, 40 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a 28-year-old Cancer woman who's been living with a Taurus man for more than six years. At first, I didn't really mind that we were not married. But lately, my family has been starting to ask questions. I would like to eventually have children, so I'm wondering whether I should broach the question with my Taurus. He's been married before and doesn't seem too eager to go in for round two. How should I bring up the subject? Also, how do I know it's the right choice? Could there be someone else out there for me? I love him, but I'm afraid to commit."
Then don't. This isn't about your family. It's your life, and it would be a shame to let your family push you into a situation about which you don't feel sure, or even very excited. It will be easy to bring up the subject when you're ready; you won't be able to not bring it up. Your nurturing Cancer instincts will take over, and you'll feel a sense of undeniable urgency. The questions you have are natural for someone on the brink of her Saturn return. Trust life's process, and stay aware. Everything will be answered by your 30th birthday.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Paul Rudd has been a Shakespearean player, a teen idol and a comedy king. Lately, the versatile Aries actor and film producer has been busier than ever turning out the blockbuster comedies. Rudd was born when the sun, Mercury, Venus and Saturn were all in the high-energy, spontaneous and passionate sign of Aries. With this much Aries energy going for him, he's likely a master at improvisation, too!
