Horoscopes by Holiday
How do you know it's home? The Cancer moon repeats this question today, asking it of the sun and then of Neptune and finally of Jupiter. The sun insists that you carry your home with you, in your attitude and your comfort level in your own skin. Neptune says home is where you feel you belong. Jupiter says it's where you're supported and restored.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You pull things together in the most interesting ways. Your approach to life is fascinating! Of course, not to you. You're used to it. But someone close to you will be duly impressed.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The well-known solution is not the one you need to try right now. Your openness to the unconventional will give you keys to a more creative and interesting existence.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Their eyes are on you. In time, this will manifest as imitation. Is what you're doing worthy of imitation by folks with fewer years on the planet or people of any age with less experience in the thing you've mastered?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don't have to make it up as you go. A path has been cleared, though this is not readily apparent. Most likely, the key is in the books, journals, business plans, patterns, recipes, etc., of those who've already done this.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Give-and-take won't work. It's the taking that's the problem. Takers cause loss, and takers lose. Strive to be either a giver or a receiver, not a taker. Giving and receiving are acts of equal grace and importance.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It used to be that one of man's primary ways of staying safe was to run for cover. We've evolved to require cleverer tactics, but the urge to flee is still there, as you may notice today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In the orchard of existence, the juiciest sections of life exist around the seeds of wishes and within the skin of reality. That is, by the way, a skin that is thick enough to contain all the good stuff yet also easily peeled back.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will thrive in a responsive environment, one that cradles and embraces you, that caters to your unique rhythms, that allows you to curl up and rest when you need to without interruption or disturbance.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Fighting for a principle isn't so hard. Anyone can do it. It's living up to a principle that's challenging. In fact, do that first — because if you can't, it's not worth fighting for.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Humans so often equate good looks with goodness, when of course, the two have very little to do with each other. In today's character assessments, be careful to look past appearances.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Communicate about money. You may be thrifty and make wise financial decisions, but the point is moot if your loved ones who are financially tied to you counter your intentions with frivolity.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). As for the burdens laid on you by society, there may be a way around some of them that you're not seeing. Rest and detach today. You'll come back to your civic and social responsibility with a new idea tomorrow.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 30). As you become more organized, efficient and thrifty, it will be as if someone gave you the most precious gift of all — more time. Love both delights and distracts you in May. June shows your talent blossoming. The great satisfaction you get from learning soon translates into augmented wages in September. Pisces and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 20, 44, 14 and 38.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: This week brings the midpoint between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, celebrated with the ancient festival of Beltane. Also known as Celtic May Day, this holiday appears in some of the earliest Irish literature and closely correlates with Irish mythology. Many Beltane rituals had to do with fire — the central focus of the fun being a bonfire in the center of the village, from which all of the villagers, having put out their own fires at home, would reignite their hearths from this great collective flame.
The Leo moon that rules Tuesday and Wednesday is a fire-sign influence to echo the Beltane spirit. This is the cosmic climate to acknowledge and partake in life's richness and enjoy its easy abundance. What's wrong with the low-hanging fruit? Nothing! Eat it up! Too easy? Chalk it up to nature's finally being on your side — which, of course, it often isn't, so take advantage. To make things unnecessarily difficult would be foolish, maybe even sinful. In doing what's easy, you align with the prevalent cosmic climate. On Wednesday, Mercury goes retrograde to reinforce these ideas.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Kirsten Dunst started her show business career at age 3. Whether she's playing a vampire, a princess or a superhero's sidekick, this Venus-ruled beauty captivates her audience with her soulful, commanding presence. Her sun and Mercury are in sensual Taurus, and her moon is in Leo, the sign of the entertainment business. Her Venus' being in Pisces lends natural acting talent.
