HAPPY BIRTHDAY, fire-starter! Your super solar celebration may be a bit on the weird side this year, but weird can be so, so good. The reason for the strange vibes is an unusually large number of planets in retrograde this April. Venus and Jupiter are already moving backwards, only to be followed by Saturn on the 6th, and then everyone's favourite crazy-making planet, Mercury, on the 9th. The Full Moon arrives on the 11th, making relationships as intense as possible – but a breakthrough is likely if you're willing to stop fighting and start mending fences. Happily Venus will return to direct motion by the 15th, restoring sanity to your love life. Finances are a major theme during the second half of the month, as Mercury Retrograde will bring some messiness to your money zone. This is an opportunity, however, to bring some healthy discipline to your spending habits and simultaneously find extra sources of income. When the New Moon comes to this part of your chart on the 26th, it's time to set six-month financial goals. With the right follow-up, you should be the mogul you were born to be by next fall. Venus moves back into your sign on the 29th, assuring you that May will be beyond beautiful.

Eclipse season is OVER, baby, and you can barely contain your pleasure over this cosmic development. Let's face it – February wasn't exactly an easy month, but now you're over the hump. The big development for March is that Venus will slow down and go retrograde on the 4th – in your very own fiery constellation. This isn't necessarily bad news, it just suggests that you take a pause before falling head over heels, and avoid sealing the deal on any relationships. If someone wants to put a ring on it before mid-April, you might just have to say, "Wait just a moment please…" Important caveat: beauty treatments are not necessarily favoured now, especially if they involve any real change. So if you were just about to go red, cut off all your hair, or get a cool tattoo – consider waiting. (That goes for Botox and fillers.) You might entirely change your mind after Venus goes direct. Finally, expect old lovers to show up out of nowhere wondering how you are, which really means, "Do you want to go to bed again?" Be skeptical, very skeptical, of people's romantic motives. There's an uber-productive Full Moon on the 12th, one that begs you to get back to work or finally finish a project you started six months ago. Spring officially begins on the 20th, which is also, delightfully, the start of your birthday season! March is capped off with a sizzling New Moon in your own sign on the 27th – it's time to plan your six-month world-domination strategy. Go get 'em, Ms. Ram!
