The Taurus solar eclipse in May delivers beauty, security, love and a bauble or two, reminding us of the tale of “Ferdinand the Bull.” A bull-fighting bull he was not. Get your Ferdinand on: eating well, sleeping soundly while smelling the sweet clover of success. Here is where to find yours in Spring 2013!

Aries (March 21 – April 21) Money honey! Enjoy the win-win of risk and reward. Mars-inspired confidence surges in March and April. Bank balances grow or credit scores rise. Confidently sign off on home upgrades in April and enjoy your home for the year to come.

Taurus (April 21 – May 20) Flabby to fit! Get out the treadmill or circle the block; do not be afraid of joining a gym. Mirrors are about to become your best friend. This is a sincere and fun window to shape up and get healthy. The big reveal is June. Showing skin has never felt so comfortable.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21) Secret getaways! Do not underestimate your power of exotica. Put on your Mata Hari headdress and listen closely. Confidantes need to share; you are willing to listen or vice versa. Money affords meditation, movies or a jaunt to the Mexican Riviera—the perfect antidote for stale circumstances.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22) Differentiate yourself! Breaking from the pack is as easy as saying, “Free to be me.” March and April attracts a spotlight, a perfect time to make the announcement. Whether stepping-up or stepping-out, new social circles redefine your reputation.

Leo (July 22 – August 23) Grand re-opening! 2013 is a public year. Secrets not recommended. Roll out the second act or write the second chapter. April to May screams, “Look at me!” Speak up at public forums, but beware of new bosses or management teams.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22) Beam me up! Get your head in the clouds, attend law school, become bilingual or launch a spiritual journey. Discovering a personal nirvana is destined. Heady experiences ahead. Friends are in awe of your quick progress and adventurous spirit.

Libra (September 22 – October 23) Booty call! Whether a prize or a plunder, shared monies end up in your account. Gain is the word for April through June. Options and opportunities lighten the mood. Like a monkey swinging in a tree, you make life look easy. Nice!

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22) Eyes on partners! Will they or won’t they? You sit like a queen-in-waiting, without a vote. April to June turns on the actions by others. A watched pot doesn’t boil, so divert your attention to upcoming summer travel plans. They are particularly nice. Professional opportunities abound.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) Geisha girl! Enjoy the attention of men; sex is optional. Men cannot get enough of you. Leveraging monies brings benefits. Proceed confidently with mortgages, refinancing and bank transactions. See a new you in the mirror!

Capricorn (December 21 – January 21) Be proactive! Put safety and security first for home and family March – April. After May, style becomes more important. It is time to check out a designer label or create your own. Birthing is required. A new business or playmate? Your excitement is evident.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) Be seen! Say yes to all platforms or pulpits. It is time to be seen. Home renovations launch by May. Over-estimate the budget to allow for unexpected upgrades. Family reunions are highly likely.

Pisces (February 20 – March 20) Connect! Networking is calling. Joining clubs or talking to the neighbors is the first step. A new routine in April or May opens a portal to greater possibilities. Skill sets emerge in the classroom or on the job. Life is getting more fun!
