Sunday, April 8


MOON ALERT We have the all clear to shop and make important decisions. The moon is in Scorpio.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

It's your nature to be generous. However, you might be unsure as to where to draw the line. Something could prompt you to give away more than your fair share. Make sure you're comfortable with whatever you do.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This is a lovely day to shmooze! Make plans to enjoy yourself. There's an element of hedonism to this day and Lord knows you are someone who enjoys good food, good drink, good sex and a wonderful home. You might overdo something. (Ya think?)


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

This is a fun-loving, playful day, but it's also possible to be excessive, especially eating and drinking. Or you might go overboard with sweets. (Why is it that all the fun stuff is unhealthy?) Just keep this in mind while you enjoy your day.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Today you'll enjoy sports, parties, social diversions and playful times with kids. Romance will be upbeat and fun. But you might overdo something. Just keep this in mind so that you don't tarnish what can be a great time.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You are an incredible host. Nothing is too much trouble when you invite people to your home. You'll go into debt to lavish luxury on your guests. Keep this in mind today because you might be a tad too lavish. Easy does it.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You'll enjoy talking to others today. You'll also enjoy exploring new places and taking short trips. But you can't do it all. Therefore, be careful that you don't overbook and end up with too much on your plate.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Because you are so affected by your surroundings (and of course, you love beautiful things) you like to buy little goodies that will make your surroundings more elegant. And why not? Nevertheless, don't go overboard and face an exorbitant bill.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You don't feel like working today. Even if you have a To Do list -- don't kid yourself. In fact, just let yourself off the hook right off the bat. Enjoy fun times with others. This is the perfect Sunday to kick back and relax. It's junk food time!


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are of two minds today. One mind wants to spring out of bed and do what you're "supposed" to do. But the other mind is not on the same page. Oh no! It wants to play! You can have an internal quarrel back and forth in your mind or just give up now and enjoy your day.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If you're involved with groups today, be careful you don't agree to something that you will later regret. Don't volunteer to have the whole team over for dinner. Guard against one of those things that seem to be a good idea at the time, but not later. Aagghh.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Don't knock yourself out trying to please authority figures today. No big deal. Just please yourself. If you please yourself, you'll please others about 70 per cent of the time and that's good enough. After all, you count, too. And do not make big promises to anyone! (You have been warned.)


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You're excited about big plans regarding travel, higher education, publishing, the media, the law and medicine. You're full of big ideas! This is good. You might want to think before you act because perhaps your reach exceeds its grasp?



Former U.S. first lady/founder of alcohol and drug treatment centre Betty Ford (1918-2011) shares your birthday. You have strong humanitarian impulses. You want to make the world a better place, especially for those who are disadvantaged. Many times, you will put the needs of others before your own. Needless to say, you will fight for the underdog! You always want to further the common good. Your year ahead will have a strong focus on partnerships and close friendships.
