Aries
Today, your ideas will be piched and implemented at the workplace. You will prefer to spend time alone and avoid socialising. Some of you could be inclined towards spirituality.
Taurus
Consult an expert before finalising a risky project. Differences at home could affect your productivity at work. Later today, your partner could surprise you.
Gemini
You could face hurdles as you try to pursue your goals. But you will figure out a way. Friends and business associates will help you in times of trouble.
Cancer
Some of you could go on a short vacation with friends or family. Today is not a good day to invest in a new venture. Your selfish attitude could create differences.
Leo
On the professional front, you will strive hard to finish a project before deadline. While shopping today, you will concentrate on quality irrespective of the price and will end up splurging.
Virgo
You will become a stronger person today as you learn from your past experiences and are ready to implement the lessons. You will be lucky to find something that you had lost or misplaced recently.
Libra
You might find it difficult to handle two projects at the same time at work, but this will give you the experience of handling a lot of responsibilities and you will march forward with confidence.
Scorpio
Be cautious and think before you speak anything controversial today as it might work against you. Your health will remain stable.
Sagittarius
It is not a good day for making important decisions. Sisters can expect a surprise from their brothers. You will spend time with your family today.
Capricorn
A chance meeting with an old friend will make you feel nostalgic the whole day. Those upset about something should speak about it with their parents.
Aquarius
Take both positive and negative feedback seriously as it will help you to become a better person. If you are planning to start a new business, it is advisable to wait for few more days.
Pisces
There will be a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction as your new project will be appreciated by your clients. Your unconventional ideas will help you carve out a niche of your own at your workplace. Try to be optimistic today.

Mars enters Taurus in April, causing the cosmic drumbeat to start playing out a different rhythm. We all march to this and we will all soon notice a more steady, stable, pattern. It is as if the heavens are encouraging us all to show greater commitment to the issues and principles that mean the most to us. Meanwhile, the Lunar Eclipse, near the start of the month speaks of many feeling a need to address problems in relationships. These can no longer be glibly ignored. But healing those wounds and resolving those conflicts will prove easier than we fear.
Mar 29 2015 - Mar 29 2015
Aries
Have you ever dismantled a watch to see what makes it tick? Did it stop ticking once you put it back together? Are you these days inclined to think that if something ain’t broken, you shouldn’t try to fix it! That’s a fine philosophy but in your life, this month, something is broken. An arrangement or an understanding has been compromised for a while. Unless you make a concerted effort to mend it, nothing will change. But a powerful Lunar Eclipse, plus a sharp square from Mars to Jupiter, is your cosmic promise of success. In your love life: Sometimes, progress means doing an about-turn to get to the right road. Don’t be too proud to embrace a wiser approach.
Taurus
Hang out the flags! Mars is entering Taurus and it will remain there all through April. That is the astrological equivalent of gaining a guard of honour. It is as if you are about to be accompanied, everywhere you go, by dedicated servants eager to do your bidding and willing to help you remove almost any obstacle that you find in your path. You don’t need advice about how to succeed, you just need a little warning about tact and diplomacy. Go gently, this month, on some of the more sensitive souls in your world. In your love life: You don’t feel like putting on a show. But if you fake what you can’t feel for real, it will actually help you to believe it.
Gemini
Has anyone told you lately, how attractive you are? Have you been the recipient of generous gestures? Have you even perhaps, been made an offer that you are not entirely sure you ought to refuse? Even if life has been disappointingly dry for some while, things will change this month as Venus enters Gemini. Here comes a deluge of appreciation and admiration. Your love life prospects are good and your financial outlook is enviable. Not every dream will come true in April but you will be well protected by a kindly cosmos. In your love life: The cosmos showers you with bright blessings. You don’t have to take your chances; but if you can find the courage.
Cancer
April begins with a Lunar Eclipse. It doesn’t happen in your sign. You may or may not live in a place where this can be seen. But because you are a Cancerian, sensitive to the movements of the Moon, and well blessed with the gift of intuition, you will develop some impressive powers of insight and discrimination this month. They will guide you unerringly towards a series of long overdue lifestyle choices that help you to grow healthier and wealthier. Shake off resentment about a past disappointment. Embrace a brighter future. In your love life: Rules somehow eat up your energy now. There are some that you cannot live by any more. So break them. But the right way.
Leo
All this year so far, Jupiter has been in your sign but retrograde. It is as if you have been staring out through a window, looking at a bright sunny day. Yet the window won’t open and the door to the room is locked. You know that what you want is ‘out there’ and not far away. Yet one vital link is missing. You have somehow been unable to connect with a tantalising opportunity. In April, Jupiter changes direction, the window opens, as does the door. You finally see a viable route from here to a happier life. In your love life: You’ve got a feeling about something. It is easy to argue yourself out of this. But hunches deserve respect.
Virgo
Zodiac forecasts are made out of words. There are times, in life, when it seems that words are nowhere near as powerful as numbers. If the numbers don’t add up — or they do but they make the wrong total —frustration soon ensues. If you face a problem this month, it is much more of a mathematical challenge than a literary one. It doesn’t much matter what you say, or what someone else says, the numbers must be juggled till the results make sense. The good news is that you will yet arrive at a satisfactory sum. In your love life: Don’t let anyone put you off and dissipate your energy. Just one small speck of rain could distinguish what might become a glorious fire.
Libra
April begins with a Lunar Eclipse in your sign. That’s hopeful and encouraging. But you may not feel encouraged by the situation that you face this month. It is even possible that the eclipse may initially cause you more concern. How can that be good news? Because you need to take an option more seriously. You have an alternative. But each time you think about it, you can only see the pitfalls. Necessity is the mother of invention, and the solution that you invent for yourself next will have excellent consequences. In your love life: There isn’t always a calm before a storm. A part of you can hardly wait for trouble to intensify. But you should not feel obliged to invite such a development.
Scorpio
They say that ‘all things are best in moderation’. Presumably, that includes moderation itself! There are times when it is sensible not to be too sensible — and we have to be brave and bold. A sharp alignment from Mars to Jupiter speaks of your need to be decisive. You have lately seen several seemingly good reasons to avoid taking drastic or dramatic action. You are now becoming even more keenly conscious of the need to take a significant step. Try to restrict the risk, by all means, but don’t be fearful this month. In your love life: The more you rise to the bait of a conflict the more impaled you will become on the hook of contention. So do not engage. Support is coming.
Sagittarius
How have you found time to read this forecast? Aren’t you overwhelmed with deadlines and tasks to complete? Perhaps this is one of the rare moments of peace and calm that you are likely to enjoy in April. So make the most of this and every other chance you get to reflect and review. There is plenty to do but does it really all need to be done? Only you have the power to let yourself off the hook. You are trying too hard to do too much. Relax and just do, instead, what is truly needed. That will be more than enough. In your love life: Sometimes, it really can be a mistake to play it all too safe. We need a little adventure in our lives. Dare to do things differently.
Capricorn
Do you want to be as hard as a nail or as soft as a sponge? You might reply ‘neither’. You should say ‘both’. You can’t eradicate the part of you that’s vulnerable. Nor would you want to. But you need to ensure that your more delicate emotions are protected within a case of cast iron. Only the chosen deserving few should ever have access to your deepest reservoir of kindness. April’s celestial challenge is all about allowing your heart to guide you whilst keeping a threat at bay. You will find this all easier than you fear. In your love life: You are hoping for too much in one way, too little in another. Whatever you fear, you need not be afraid. Whatever you think, think again.
Aquarius
Not all troubleshooters fly around solving impossible problems on behalf of business. Some operate locally and are motivated by more than money. Due to their subtle intervention, stressful confrontations are often avoided. You know what I mean by this for you are one of those rare individuals. On a good day, when the time is right, you can say and do things that defuse tension, heal wounds and promote the most positive progress. April offers you the opportunity to be angelic. Your reward may be a kind of heaven. In your love life: You have a tremendous asset. A big advantage for which you should feel grateful. Be glad of what is good in your emotional life now.
Pisces
Are there words here? Perhaps you are just staring at a blank page, pretending that it says something. If so, you must be hearing a voice in your own mind. How does it think you should best conduct yourself in April, in order to attain the success you desire and the happiness you deserve? Does it agree that such a goal is feasible? If it does, you can keep listening to it this month and it will reliably lead you in the right direction. If not, listen to me and ignore all other imaginary, negative messages. Have faith in your future. In your love life: ‘Forgive and forget’ is an unfortunate pairing of words. You have lately learned a lesson. You would do well to remember it, but without rancour.
