Cruisin’ the Cosmos – week of April 17 2014

TAURUS (APRIL 20 — MAY 20) Bein’ born under Venus bestowed upon you a particularly pleasant personality people prefer in their presence. Since she’s sittin’ in Pisces’ house you are puttin’ your best foot forward only when your priority is bein’ perceptive. Put others first and as far as they’ll be concerned a word you can’t be described as is “worst!”

GEMINI (MAY 21 — JUNE 20) Your celestial supervisor Mercury’s still partyin’ with Pisces until next week. So when it comes to communication air and water is mixed meanin’ you’re in the midst of mucho mist clouds fog and steam. Next week Mercury high-tails it into Taurus and you’ll be on more solid footin’!

CANCER (JUNE 21 — JULY 22) You can make whatever you find is causin’ you pain this week work for you. How? Control it by controllin’ yourself. Whether mental emotional or physical you play a big part and you can change your thinkin’ patterns to avoid or manage it. Learnin’ how to do so you’ll make sure the hurt don’t worsen and leave you a much stronger person!

LEO (JULY 23 — AUG. 22) When the world gets to be a bit too much like it will seem to be doin’ this weekend you sometimes start to seek out distractions from your daily life. Don’t do it this time. Dabblin’ in diversions will only detour you down a dirt road and well away from your four-lane destiny!

VIRGO (AUG. 23 — SEPT. 22) You Virgos have highly critical faculties. Your analytical mind dissects anything in front of you and you’re able to differentiate between productive and unproductive parts. You may have a sharp eye but sometimes even you can’t see the simple fact that if you can’t beat ’em you might as well join ’em. Take another look before your goose gets cooked!

LIBRA (SEPT. 23 — OCT. 22) It takes strength to stand your ground when every cook from miles around tries to mess with your recipe. But when their mass meddlin’ becomes so much you can’t even mix your melange it’s no longer about makin’ a stand. The time has come to kick ’em outta your kitchen to work on the meal you have planned!

SCORPIO (OCT. 23 — NOV. 21) When things run afoul before the weekend don’t forget to remind yourself that one failure ain’t the end of everything. You’re jugglin’ lots in your life and droppin’ one ball don’t mean the whole show’s over. Heck it could streamline your act so much you’ll be rollin’ in clover!

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22 — DEC. 21) You’ve been blessed with long-term vision but sometimes when you’ve been workin’ towards a goal forever and you ain’t seen squat you get sick of stickin’ it out. Hey it ain’t all in vain. Boredom is only temporary and you can afford it. Keep pluggin’ away and you’ll soon be rewarded!

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22 — JAN. 19) It seems that you’ve been strollin’ down easy street for so long that you’re startin’ to go somewhat soft on us. Well now’s a good time to put a hold on your hedonistic side and harden up some. There’s a battle loomin’ on your horizon so you better get fit while you focus your eyes on it!

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20 — FEB. 18) With the Moon rubbin’ you the wrong way this week you’ll need extra willpower to wrestle with your foes. Those who want to cut you out or expand into your territory will need you to submit to get their bit. Stay strong and put ’em in your iron fist — where they belong!

PISCES (FEB. 19 — MARCH 20) A change in your fortunes this week doesn’t mean you can indulge yourself and impulsively pursue every little desire or whim you have. You know what you really want and that still requires a whole lot of work. Be your own best friend and use your newfound resources to that end!

ARIES (MARCH 21 — APRIL 19) More than any other way to present itself opportunity prefers to “pop in.” No friendly heads up RSVP invite or appointment for a specific time is gonna occur. Just a knock on your door. Don’t worry about your privacy or think too long about openin’ up. By then you might have already missed out!
