HOROSCOPES – Georgia Nichols

Your stars for April 2016

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s empowering now with the Sun in your sign because it’s your turn to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. Naturally, you are concerned much more with your own world than the world at large. But this is normal. Hey, the Sun in your sign gives you a subjective viewpoint. But this can trigger problems in relationships because others think you’re all wrapped up in yourself, which is kind of true. But hey, it’s only once a year, what’s a gal gonna do?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Since your personal year is coming to an end, this month is the perfect time to think about future goals and plan what you want for your new personal year ahead. If you want to plan a party, a sports victory, a theatrical production, the building of a house or the creation of a company – you need a list. And lists for the future are goals. And goals with deadlines are the most deadly, and therefore, the most effective! Think of three things that you want to achieve next year.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will be involved with friends and groups much more this month. Plus you might also examine the role that friendships and groups play in your life. While you do this, it’s important to establish who you are, especially in your own mind. Of course, you will help your friends, but you won’t be a doormat. Ironically, your interaction with others will benefit you, which is why team efforts are a great thing. Show up with a dozen beer and everyone loves you.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This month is the only time all year when the Sun is at the top of your chart. Symbolically, this means the Sun is shining down on you, which makes others notice you, especially bosses, VIPs and the police. Note: This light is flattering, which means that not only do others notice you they admire you! Naturally, this is why someone will ask you to take on a special job. What you need to know is this flattering light works! People will think you’re the cat’s meow even if you don’t do anything special.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This month travel will thrill you because you want to learn more and you want adventure! But more than that, you want to break free from the tyranny of your daily routine. This is why if you cannot travel, at least, be a tourist in your own city. Book a weekend in town. Take a hotel. Visit restaurants and go to places you usually take for granted. The month ahead is also a good time to explore metaphysical, philosophical and religious ideas. It’s time to enrich your life!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You are aware of diet, hygiene and what benefits and harms you (not to say you follow your own rules, but hey, you know them). This is because every astrological sign rules a part of the body, and Virgo rules the intestines. Therefore, as spring begins, you are filled with an urge to become a better person. You want to improve your body, your mind, your health, your wealth – the whole enchilada. And why not? What better aspiration?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The Sun is opposite your sign this month, which is the only time all year this occurs. Symbolically, this means you need more sleep because the Sun is your source of energy and it is now as far away from you as it gets all year. This oppositional position of the Sun will see your role in relationships more clearly. For a successful relationship, you must be as good for your partner as she or he is for you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The words ‘Spring cleaning!’ resonate with Scorpios because you love to get rid of junk. Scorpio has rulership over many things ranging from plumbing, crime, police work, medicine and psychiatry; and also garbage, including old garbage like archaeology and anthropology. This is why you love spring cleaning! Go through closets, cupboards and drawers and turf what you no longer use. When you are de-cluttered, physically efficient and on top of your scene – you will feel better!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You love spring because warmer weather lets you bike, hike, row, jog and enjoy the outdoors with more enthusiasm. This is just one reason this month is more fun and playful! You will feel lighter than usual. Many of you will enjoy playful times with children; in addition, many of you will explore romance and new love. If you can travel on vacation – great! Basically, in the month ahead, you will give yourself the time to just be yourself.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This month your attention is on home, family and your personal life. You like to be surrounded by familiar things, especially heirlooms because you are sentimental. Expect to fix up where you live, make improvements and do something to welcome the shift of emphasis that the coming summer promises. You might be involved with a parent more than usual because family discussions will be important. And finally, you will cocoon at home and do a little navel gazing.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

As spring is ushered into your world, your daily pace accelerates. Suddenly, you have that feeling you’ve got places to go, things to do and people to see plus short trips, busy errands and lots of conversations. Many of you will read, write and study more than usual as well. This is a very energetic time for you. In addition to which, some of you are competitively involved with someone in a group. This could be because of sports or it could be a repositioning of power with someone in a group.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You are the last of the signs; however, every spring, you jumpstart your preparation for spring by checking your finances. New plans require money! Plus you need wardrobe goodies and equipment so that your summer unfolds the way you want. You want to use your earnings and possessions to make your life easier. Now is the perfect time to clean, mend and repair what you own so that your possessions are useful; and you might want to show something off!
