    horoscopes for week of April 29, 2004

    Aries (March 21-April 19)

    In Montgomery, Alabama there is an intersection where Jefferson Davis Avenue meets Rosa Parks Avenue. The first street is named after the president of the secessionist slave-owning states in America's Civil War. The other is named in honor of the black woman whose brave actions in 1954 helped launch the civil rights movement. I'd like to suggest that this place is a good symbol for the crossroads where you now stand, Aries. Why? Meditate on these two possibilities. 1. The controlling, dogmatic rebel in you has come head-to-head with the flexible, freedom-loving rebel in you. 2. The loud, bellicose fighter in you is in a struggle with the poised, strategic fighter in you.

    Taurus (April 20-May 20)

    Close your eyes and take yourself back in time to the moment when you slipped free of your mother's womb. Imagine your original breath; recreate the sensation of air rushing into your lungs for the first time. Remember it as the end of your warm, dark, watery existence and the beginning of your sojourn in this bright, dry, spacious world. Dwell there in that simulation for a while, Taurus, then consider this: You will soon experience, in a metaphorical way and on a higher level, another first breath. Like the earlier version, it will be both unsettling and vivifying, a time of poignancy and celebration.

    Gemini (May 21-June 20)

    Years ago, rock star Sting bragged about the extravagant tantric lovemaking that he and his wife enjoyed. Their erotic sessions sometimes lasted for eight consecutive hours, he said. But recently he confessed that his earlier claims had been overstated. "What I didn't say about the eight-hour marathons," he told British TV station ITV, "was that they included four hours of begging and then dinner and a movie." I urge you to regard Sting as your role model in the coming week, Gemini. Spend some time making good-humored corrections of your past hyperbole. While you're at it, atone for any other extreme or immoderate behavior that may still be generating misconceptions.

    Cancer (June 21-July 22)

    Though he wrote almost five centuries ago, comic novelist Francois Rabelais provided the perfect advice for you this week: "It behooves all adventurers to treat their good luck with reverence, neither bothering nor upsetting it." In other words, Cancerian, don't spend even a minute wondering why your life is blessed with so much grace right now. Refrain from analyzing it, discoursing about it, or theorizing on how you might be able to preserve it. Instead, use it exuberantly and with a devout sense of gratitude. Explore in vivid detail what it feels like to be a free-wheeling adventurer.

    Leo (July 23-August 22)

    Now that you're in the ambition-building phase of your yearly cycle, I figure you're ready for a fresh set of cute aphorisms. Use the following to fuel the fire in your belly, the chutzpah in your heart, and the gleam in your eye. 1. If you don't run your own life, someone else will. 2. Opportunity often slips by unrecognized, disguised as hard work. 3. Life isn't about finding yourself. It's about creating yourself. 4. Be willing to give up what you are for what you can become. 5. Follow your dreams, except the one where you're giving a speech in your underwear.

    Virgo (August 23-September 22)

    The influential New York Times Book Review may soon begin to emphasize nonfiction books and cut back on its coverage of literary fiction. "The most compelling ideas tend to be in the nonfiction world," Times executive editor Bill Keller said in an interview, launching the rumors. Poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti decried such a move, telling the San Francisco Chronicle's Heidi Benson that "the national consciousness has [already] been taken over by the technological and pragmatic." He'd like to see more fiction and poetry. Regardless of where you might stand on this issue for the long haul, Virgo, it's important to side with Ferlinghetti for now. You need less knowledge and more imagination, fewer of the hard facts and more of the dreamy truths.

    Libra (September 23-October 22)

    U.S. President Woodrow Wilson suffered a debilitating stroke in 1919. For the next 17 months, until his term was over, his wife Edith was the de facto Commander in Chief of the United States. She hid the severity of his incapacity, allowing only his doctors to see him as he hid in his sickroom at the White House. Meanwhile, she issued a steady stream of policy decisions, signed treaties, and presidential directives, always written in her own hand. I believe you Libras now have a chance to play a role comparable to Edith's: to be the power behind the throne. Here are your words to live by, courtesy of philanthropist Art Rennison: "There is no end to what can be accomplished if you don't care who gets the credit."

    Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

    Just because you're born under a particular sign doesn't mean you're forever obligated to be a perfect example of all its classical qualities. On the contrary, a growing number of visionary astrologers recommend regular rebellions against your type. To do so keeps you honest; it prevents you from being consumed by habit. The coming weeks will be an especially favorable time for you to periodically elude the Scorpio trance. It almost doesn't matter which alternatives you experiment with, but I believe you'll gain a lot by trying on Libran and Aquarian perspectives.

    Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

    Forty years ago, three repetitions of a 60-second TV commercial were enough to reach 80 percent of the population. Today it takes 117 such plugs to accomplish the same effect. Why? The proliferation of cable TV stations and other media means that a business has to work much harder to spread the word about its product. You'll face a similar prospect in the coming weeks and months, Sagittarius. Because your competition will be expanding and multiplying, you'll have to grow in order to keep from falling behind. I think that's good news, though. The pressure to improve will be healthy for you.

    Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

    "Desire makes everything blossom," mused French novelist Marcel Proust. "Possession makes everything wither and fade." If the first part of that quote is true, Capricorn, you'll be in full bloom any minute now. The astrological omens suggest that your longings will explode with the forceful beauty of five dozen long-stemmed red roses arrayed in a spiral on a silk-covered bed. But what about the second half of Proust's quote? Will you feel withered and faded once you have possessed what you desire? Not if you're a student of cycles; not if you're one of those wise, highly evolved Capricorns who's as skilled at having as you are at wanting.

    Aquarius (January 20- February 18)

    I won't be upset with you if you decide to buy a case of gourmet chocolate, have your bathroom floor redone in a style resembling the throne room of a seventeenth-century French king, or get cosmetic surgery on your least-favorite physical feature. The astrological omens suggest that you have every right to splurge in order to make yourself feel really good. However, there are less materialistic, more soul-satisfying ways to channel your mandate for lavish self-fulfillment. Consider the possibility of hiring a coach or going on a meditation retreat, for instance. Revamp your diet so it's twice as healthy as it is now, or find a way to release the natural endorphins in your brain on a more regular basis.

    Pisces (February 19-March 20)

    Have you ever gone to a film merely looking for lightweight diversion, but instead you get bowled over by a moving scene that inspires you to change your life for the better? Have you ever sought out a friend in the hope of receiving unconditional approval, but she gently points out a flaw in your thinking that helps you shed a pernicious delusion? Fate will offer you life-enhancing substitutions like these in the coming week, Pisces. Don't be fanatically attached to fulfilling your expectations.

    Aries: (March 21—April 19)
    You love pointing out that you were raised by wolves, but you never mention that they were Harvard-educated, old-money Boston wolves.

    Taurus: (April. 20—May 20)
    Not that it's really the Zodiac's business, but most people take the dead goldfish out of the tank before adding new ones. The same goes for the drowned cats.

    Gemini: (May 21—June 21)
    Plastic bags are not a toy, but you understand that they can still be a lot of fun if you use them to smother children.

    Cancer: (June 22—July 22)
    You may say there's nothing wrong with you that a week in the Bahamas won't cure, but the stars recommend you get the chemotherapy.

    Leo: (July 23—Aug. 22)
    The stars have always been a great influence on your fate. This will never be as true as it is next week, when a certain yellow G-type variable star cuts loose with a really impressive flare.

    Virgo: (Aug. 23—Sept. 22)
    Everyone has problems, but they don't all expect the whole universe to come to a standstill because of them. Only about half of them expect that.

    Libra: (Sept. 23—Oct. 23)
    You'll no longer have any reason to doubt the transcendent power of love after you see it obliterate an entire armored division in military tests.

    Scorpio: (Oct. 24—Nov. 21)
    Some people would cut off their nose to spite their face, but you're not like that. You did it because you thought it would make you look like a wingless man-bat hybrid.

    Sagittarius: (Nov. 22—Dec. 21)
    A bizarre misunderstanding on your part will result in your going to church every Sunday and speaking sincerely to invisible entities with the belief that it might do you some sort of good.

    Capricorn: (Dec. 22—Jan. 19)
    Your millions can't help you find love and happiness, especially because the word "millions" here doesn't indicate any sort of monetary unit.

    Aquarius: (Jan. 20—Feb. 18)
    You'll watch as dozens die in a bus accident, but take heart: Everyone will know there was nothing you could have done without severely inconveniencing yourself.

    Pisces: (Feb. 19—March 20)
    You've been forced to conclude that people are just no good, no matter how you slice, puree, braise, fry, or sauté them.

    Mine is stupid. Read scorpio. what the fuck? I'm a double scorpio so I can't help myself. For those who don't know. When you're double something it means that you're rising sign is the same as you're other sign. If you don't know what rising sign is then look it up because I don't feel like typing all that.
