ARIES March 21st – April 20th
Money from a scholarship or grant will become available as April turns into May. Take this opportunity to expand your horizons. This is a great time to learn a craft, like landscaping, making furniture, or designing clothes. The Full Moon on the 4th May forces you to juggle your finances. A big bill must be paid and won’t leave you with much spare cash. Fortunately, a fresh source of income will arrive soon after. This new opening or opportunity will draw upon your leadership skills. Be very direct and precise in your communications to avoid confusion. By demonstrating a clear vision, you will win the loyalty of the entire team.

Organisation won’t be your strongest suit around the end of the month. Make sure to check and double check your work before handing it in. Above all, don’t send emails until you are sure exactly who you are sending them to. You wouldn’t want confidential information being broadcast to an entire mailing list.
TAURUS April 21st – May 21st
May’s Full Moon on the 4th forces you to make some radical changes to a close relationship. You simply can’t keep giving everything to a demanding partner. It’s time to carve out more time for your favourite activities. Stop apologising for having different wants and needs than those of your closest friend.
