Expect more than the usual nuttiness on All Fools' Day
as Mercury meets up with wild and weird Uranus in Pisces. Monday's full
moon in lovable Libra has to contend with the chilly reception Venus, the ruler
of Libra, gets from stoical Saturn. Good for sculptors working in stone. Wednesday's
challenge concerns buying into someone else's fantasy while nebulous Neptune
and Venus square. Good for makeup artists and musicians. Although lucky Jupiter
turns retrograde next Thursday, the flip should't affect what promises
to be an especially fortunate Easter weekend.


There might be a holier-than-thou vibe to Easter Week this year because, as of
Good Friday, your Mars ruler will be in Pisces, the sign of the Fish. Do't
dismiss the urge to sacrifice something precious, yourself included, for a higher
purpose; and do't worry that this desire will become permanent. On May
15, Mars comes home to Aries and assumes its usual headstrong stance. Meanwhile,
be sure to take advantage of the favors headed your way as the sun in Aries favors,
and is favored in return by, prosperous Jupiter and constructive Saturn.


You simply have to be your own seriously attractive, semisweet self: not a problem
while Venus, your lovable ruling planet, remains in your sign. What might be more
difficult is to let the people who are prominent in your life at the moment do
their thing. This includes the wiseass associate, a philanthropic adviser, and
either dear old Dad or the Momma you occasionally would like to throw from a train.
They, or folks like them, are the chief characters in the rewarding grand fire
trine taking place this month.


Like your Taurus neighbor, Twins may have to step away from center stage and give
the supporting players in your current drama their turn in the spotlight. With
“know it all” Jupiter in your Sag marriage house, your partners will
insist on having their say, but a neighbor or elderly relative could also advance
the plotline. We wo't even mention your boss or a business associate who's
demanding more attention. Your willingness to settle for less than prime time
ends when your Mercury ruler leaves pious Pisces on the 10th.


For a change, the Libra full moon on the 2nd was not an eclipse, so we trust that
the Moon Child will be able to deal with your domestic scene without interruption
or interference. Pay attention instead to the high-spirited and highly effective
grand fire trine between the Aries sun in your career midheaven, expansive Jupiter
in your work zone, and stabilizing Saturn in your house of money matters. This
is about as adventurous, yet constructive, a combination of planetary forces as
you've encountered in many years.


If you're not already sitting on top of the world, you should be planning
your ascent. While your sun ruler is in Aries, the courageous fire sign governing
your house of foreign travel, you're psyched to have a memorable physical
or spiritual adventure. Add a heavy dose of enthusiasm from Jupiter in your house
of recreation and risk, and you might be willing to ignore the warning signs you're
getting from prudent Saturn in Leo. A grand fire trine composed of the major planets
suggests that you're about to receive a huge reward. What for?


So much for arguing with the dry cleaners. Once assertive Mars enters Pisces on
the 6th, you'll prefer to fight with your partners, and they in turn with
you. This much passion could lead to a more interesting sex life than you've
experienced since the last time the planet of testosterone was in your house of
significant others, two years ago. This interlude lasts only until mid-May, so
do't be shy. Because your Mercury ruler ends its sojourn in Pisces on the
10th, initiate meaningful discussions with your allies ASAP.


That sense of emotional fulfillment that flows from a Libra full moon might not
be felt, because, at the same time, your Venus ruler had to deal with a challenging
square from Saturn, the planet of limitations and loss. Keep your wallet close
and your credit-card receipts closer. Also, double-check the advice you're
getting from Neptunian-type dreamers and schemers. While they may be spot on regarding
aesthetic values and artistic technique, for the time being you're liable
to believe any sweet nothing whispered in your ear.


Cashing in? Lucky Jupiter in your Sag house of assets and values is poised to
produce a major reward for work well done. Plus, since Saturn in your Leo midheaven
is involved, a person of stature in your chosen field seems to like you well enough
to put some money where his/her mouth is. Adding to the possible potential for
profit, the Aries sun is currently illuminating your house of co-workers and worthy
causes. Put these three major forces together, and there's a better-than-average
chance your trifecta ticket will pay off.


It ca't be said often enough: Your growth-oriented Jupiter ruler will continue
to offer a cornucopia of benefits while it transits Sagittarius this year. Add
a favorable connection to persistent Saturn in Leo, the sign of show biz, and
you could be in clover far longer than anyone anticipates. An extra advantage
for Easter Week: The adventurous Aries sun in your house of recreation, romance
and risk forms the third leg of the rewarding grand fire trine. Along with your
not-so-cockeyed optimism, bona fide good luck.


Overcome the feeling that while Venus is testing your Saturn ruler, your love
life sucks, and you'll come out of this week a far better and much luckier
Goat. But first you have to trust that protective Jupiter is acting as your guardian
angel, and that the independent Aries sun, rather than irritating you with its
“devil may care” approach, is actually lightening your load at home.
You may also achieve a creative solution to an ongoing financial matter during
this rare, but oh-so-rewarding, grand fire-sign trine.


Fascination or fraudulence? Only because impressionable Neptune in your sign is
currently the object of Venus' many charms are you being cautioned. If the
goddess is simply offering decorating advice, that's all well and good.
But if she is demanding that you spend way too much money, then you'd better
wait another week, until her influence is on the wane. Since this is a good time
for partnership matters, concentrate instead on keeping those lines of communication
open and aboveboard so that significant progress can be made.


If you're aware that Jupiter (your ancient ruling planet) is turning retrograde
in your career midheaven on the 5th, you wo't be as disappointed if what
you expected to happen does't. Nevertheless, strong, favorable vibes are
flowing from the jolly giant at the top to consistently constructive Saturn in
your workaday world and the Aries sun in your money house. Might they constitute
a golden parachute? Further clarification once Mercury finally leaves Pisces,
where it's been hanging out since Groundhog Day.
