Officially Spring

Since so many people seem driven to conduct ‘spring house cleaning’ once the season has officially started, I thought it might be fun to offer a few suggestions for each Natal Sign to pursue.

Aries: March 21-April 19

The Ram needs to clear out the office that currently looks like a disheveled dorm room and put things away in filing cabinets, desk drawers, etc. Also, I’d suggest picking out one project that got left on the back burner in 2021 and seeing if you can complete it now, just to encourage good chi.

Taurus: April 20-May 20

Had a talk with your banker lately? This season might be a good time to sit down with him or her and find out what new services or products your bank may have added that you could utilize. And make that phone call to an elderly relative; it’ll be appreciated.

Gemini: May 21-June 21

What do the two of you want, Twins? You don’t have to have identical wardrobes since Mom isn’t dressing you any more, so try out your individual styles. Just for a little frivolity, go out on a double date (even if you’re married – remember your spouses?) and enjoy yourselves.

Cancer: June 22-July 22

Time to toss out that old tube of toothpaste Auntie Esmerelda used, and instead do something to remember her by that you can share with other people, like getting her photos into the family album. Then consider having her portrait painted from the most flattering photo.

Leo: July 23-August 22

Always wanted to try out for a part in your local off-Broadway theatre? With other new activities and avocations ‘springing’ up around you, consider the footlights for your new hobby. Applause will do you good.

Virgo: August 23-September 22

Get your nose out of a book and go for a walk, even if it’s back to the library for more – books. Take a few of them off your living room shelves before the wood gives way and give them away to a good cause.

Libra: September 23-October 22

As an Air Sign, go fly a kite. Seriously. It’ll do you good; you’re getting way too stuffy again. Remember, there’s a huge difference between being ‘grown up’ and ‘shrunk down.’

Scorpio: October 23-November 21

Ah, not just a young man’s fancy turns in Spring. Go ahead and ogle someone striking, but do so discreetly. You don’t want to be accused of stalking another person.

Sagittarius: November 22-December 21

Spend an afternoon on a farm and enjoy gamboling with the new lambs and playing with the barn cat’s kittens. You haven’t been a kid for a number of years, but you can indulge for a few hours.

Capricorn: December 22-January 19

Take off your suit jacket, sling it over your shoulder and go enjoy the sunshine. Your staff may think you’ve indulged in strong spirits for lunch, but you know better. Spring air can be like wine, too.

Aquarius: January 20-February 18

Time for a picnic in the park. Even if it’s a sandwich and an ice cream treat from a passing food truck, the thought’s the thing. Buy two of each and give the second set to a homeless person.

Pisces: February 19-March 20

Shake those winter doldrums by shaking up your routine. Have dinner for breakfast, a snack for lunch and waffles for dinner. Your kids will love it. Your spouse may not be as enthused, but just pour on extra syrup.

Good riddance to winter. Bad news and heartbreak always seem worse when the world outside is covered in snow and ice.  – MZ
