Monday, April 30

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Even though the way a person acts is a reflection of who he or she really is, you still get the strange feeling that you are someone other than the person enacting your behavior. The truth in this will be food for thought today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In machinery operation and in life, if you grip the controls harder than is necessary, it will limit your range of motion and lengthen your response time. Stay flexible and ready.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Patterns establish themselves whether we want them to or not. It’s why some things are better not to start up at all. Steer clear from the actions that typically lead down a bad path.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Spatial balance is a key to beauty in many art forms, including relationships. Too much closeness is stifling and claustrophobia-inducing. Too much distance leaves nothing to grab on to. Seek the optimal spacing and you will find it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Many people are willing to be sold on an idea; it’s fun to be seduced. Whether it’s a seduction to get you to buy a product, join a group or be personally enticed, you’re no easy mark. You want the truth more than the seduction.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). All natures are pure — and cannot be otherwise — though not all intentions are pure. Many only want the highest good for all when it’s also what their ego wants. Not you. Your intent is pure, and so is your nature.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It will be challenging to assign the proper scale for the matters that affect our lives. Emotions could cause you to improperly or unhelpfully magnify or minimize the impact of things. The perspective of outsiders will be valuable.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Ask yourself why you’re holding on to something. Is it because you’re afraid of what would change if you let go? If fear is the only thing holding you back, remind yourself that change is the only inevitable constant of life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Being attached to the appearance of things will hold you back from knowing the real essence of them. Forget what things are supposed to be so you can find out what they really are.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re happy to be the witness, not the judge. You may be asked to give a verdict anyway, but think twice before you do. Even seemingly innocuous opinions could have an unintended influence.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be like the moon, influencing from afar, not having to force or even touch anything to affect it, moving and changing everything about life on earth by simply obeying its own nature.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re mild-mannered when that’s what’s appropriate, which is what will be appropriate for most of the day. But there will be brief moments when intense emotions will help you go at your purpose harder.
