Amorous Venus abounds, but too much emotion will muddle the situation. Trust the universe to make it all right

Earning another candle on the cake is a nice reminder to take care of the body you rely on for eating, sleeping, and looking pretty darn good in a swimsuit. Hit the gym, drink your 8+ glasses of water like Gabrielle Union, and eat your (organic) greens.

You may feel like you’ve bitten off more than you can chew, but like Game of Thrones‘s Brienne of Tarth, you’ll soon get a gift from the universe (hers was a Valyrian steel sword called “Oathkeeper”). With angry determination, you’ll come through on absolutely everything.

When you’re too eager to sign on to projects you’re not that amped up about, you’re actually obstructing other (possibly better) opportunities. The same goes for lukewarm relationships, Cancer. Leave your mind – and your options – open this week.

Why so on edge, Leo? Is it PASD (Post April Stress Disorder)? Don’t worry, the intense cosmic twists and turns are over for now. Take a deep breath and let your body relax. If you don’t overreact to every little ripple, you’ll find it’s relatively smooth sailing.

Being partners with somebody means more than ordering Chinese takeout and curling up in front of Mad Men. You need to find time to connect on a more intimate level. If you’ve been friend-zoned, lusty Venus in Aries should sort out that situation.

Remember two weeks ago when it seemed like the universe was against you? All those stressors will make a return visit this week – but this go-round won’t be nearly as torturous. Besides, you already know what to do to make everything copacetic again.

Well, look at you stopping to smell the roses, Scorpio. You’re a regular Pollyanna. And why shouldn’t you be? Flowers are in full bloom, there’s an invigorating full moon on the horizon, and Beyoncé & Jay Z have announced a summer tour together. Bask away.

Flirtatious Venus is paying a visit to your romance sector and it’s giving your spring fever a sexy little spark. Be free with your affection (to a point). As Chris Martin recently said: “If you can’t open yourself up, you can’t appreciate the wonder inside.”

Teamwork makes the dream work unless Saturn happens to be retrograde in your eleventh house. In which case, infighting, clashing egos, and credit-stealing slackers are de rigueur. Sometimes, if you need something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself.

Paralysis by analysis is your problem this week, Aquarius – since you don’t have the perfect fix, you’re allowing an unfinished project to grow cobwebs. Saturn in retrograde is your cosmic permission to motor through as imperfectly as you need to.

A little bit of drama can keeps things lively, but too much emotional excitement is bad news. Rumors and hidden resentments can drive you and a certain someone even further apart than Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott. At least their issues are out in the open.

Love is in the air, and not just for erstwhile “eternal bachelor” George Clooney and his new fiancée. Amorous Venus is all up in your sign, and sparks are flying so hard and fast that you might need to issue a seizure warning. Enjoy the canoodling to come.
