MONDAY, APRIL 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will want to let someone else lead the way for a time today -- at least until you get your bearings and settle on a final destination.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take care that you are not so freewheeling today that you are unable to buckle down and get done the things that have to be finished.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You focus on the things that matter to you, but today it may be more appropriate to focus on the things that matter to a loved one.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are eager to see things change, but uncertain as to how to effect that change. Pay attention to what someone else is doing, and follow suit.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Use your imagination today and you'll solve a problem that ordinary thinking isn't likely to solve. Why not be a little more daring?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're sure to encounter several obstacles today, but the only one you have to worry about is the one that you have created for yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll want to go easy on someone who is still learning the ropes. Take care, however, that you don't start helping too much.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be getting advice from someone who is not really in a position to give it. Take it easy, however, and don't fly off the handle.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A creative endeavor proves more difficult than you had anticipated -- in part because you are trying to do something experimental.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Momentum is your friend; you will want to avoid anything that requires you to slow down or -- even worse -- stop in your tracks. Keep going.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may realize what you are trying to accomplish is not something that others are eager for you to do. It's time to change their minds.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- If the wish you've made is not compatible with that made by someone else, you'll know it right away -- certainly in time to do something about it.
