Week of April 23

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): I once had a Virgo girlfriend who was exceedingly well-organized. The capstone of her heroic efforts to keep life rigorously ordered was her approach to her underwear. Each of her panties was embroidered with the name of a day of the week. In the large drawer where they were kept, all the Mondays were in a neat pile at the upper left-hand corner, followed by the rest of the days in their proper sequence. She was always able to grab the correct pair, even when she was half-asleep and the room was dark. If I were going to contact her now, I'd recommend that she should, for a change, arrange her intimate items out of order, and maybe wear Monday on Friday, or put Tuesday on inside-out on Saturday. According to my reading of the omens, this kind of playful self-trickery would set the right tone for you Virgos; it would encourage the universe to send you the benevolent interruptions and interesting interventions you need.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): "Being understood is not the most essential thing in life," said actress Jodie Foster. While that may be true for her, I bet you won't turn it down if a flood of appreciation and acknowledgement comes your way in the next few weeks. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you now have the potential to be better understood than maybe you've been in a long time. I suggest you take maximum advantage of this good fortune. Make it easy for people to see you for who you really are.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The famous physicist Robert Oppenheimer sometimes displayed a disarming humility. "There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics," he said once, "because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago." I invite you to consider the possibility that you, too, could learn a lot from people you regard as beneath you or utterly unlike you. It's one of those rare phases in your astrological cycle when useful revelations are likely to arrive from outside your normal frame of reference. (P.S. Animals might be great teachers as well.)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It's a Love Emergency! Am I right? There's a growing itch in the romantic sphere, and it needs immediate scratching. I mean it really can't wait for a few more days to pass; something's got to be done soon. It may be true that this thickening of the plot has been underway for quite a while, and its growing urgency may have snuck up on you. It also may be true that the shift will ultimately be a promising development. But that doesn't mean you can afford to be casual about it. Take action!
