If Your Birthday Is April 15

Actress Emma Thompson (1959) shares your birthday. You are very involved in the lives and activities of everything around you. You shape things and give them structure. You also can inspire others. This year something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new. Take it easy and learn to serve others. This is an excellent year to travel.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For the next few weeks, you will think more about your values in life. On a mundane level, you will be concerned with business, cash flow and your possessions. But at a deeper level, you’ll be asking yourself — “What really matters in life?” (Besides fast cars and winning?)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Yesterday, Mercury moved into your sign to stay for the next few weeks. This will make you more talkative and eager to communicate your point of view to others. Your mind will be active, and hence, you will want to be more active, especially through travel. Go, go, go!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The next few weeks will offer you opportunities to research and learn things behind the scenes. However, because Mercury will join Mars in a hidden part of your chart, you will also be more secretive and private than usual. (Be careful. Sometimes you can bend the truth.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

In the next few weeks, you will give more thought to your goals and expectations in life. In fact, this is a good time to clearly define what your hopes and dreams are. Not only to define these goals but give them deadlines. Expect to meet younger people as well.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

In the next few weeks, you will benefit from new studies or training that can help your career. New knowledge might also help you within an organization. It’s a great time to communicate to superiors — bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. “Put me through to POTUS.”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will love traveling or studying in the next few weeks because intellectually speaking, you want to expand your world. Your curiosity is piqued. You want to learn new things and meet new people, especially younger people. Heady discussions about lofty topics will appeal.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You will think about psychological truths within yourself during the next few weeks. You might ponder your mortality. You might also think about how you can become a better person and get the most out of life. Naturally, red-tape details will also be a major focus — taxes!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Mercury has just moved opposite your sign to stay for the next few weeks. This placement of Mercury offers you an excellent chance to clarify things to partners and close friends. It’s also a good time to discuss difficulties in your closest relationships.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You will be efficient in the next few weeks because of the placement of Mercury in a new sign. You will be more attentive to details and be quite a perfectionist about things. “No capes!” (I love Edna.) You might also think about health issues.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The next few weeks will be playful. You’ll be in a prankish mood plus you will want to pass time reading, writing, playing games, especially doing crossword puzzles, Sudoku and mentally challenging escapes. Enjoy!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Even though you might intellectually withdraw in the next few weeks, you will want to tackle home repairs. Family discussions, especially about the family itself, will be an issue. You might feel you need to express your mind.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The pace of your days will increase during the next few weeks. This will be a great time to get out and speak to others, as well as listen to them. You’ll be busy, on the go and stimulated by your need to juggle many things at once.
