(No Ratings Yet)

BNN presents a weekly horoscope for April 28th – May 4th.

Aries – the best thing you can do this week is discuss everything you have on your mind with a good friend! This will help you formulate a plan and gather enough courage to go forward. The alignment of the stars in your sign will wake your creativity. This is why you will be especially bright in your expressions!

Taurus – do try to attend to your health/immune system this week. You can start with eating a fruit or two, which will help strengthen both. You will want to do everything at once! You may end up buried under too many tasks because of this! Try to be more careful in your expenses as well…

Gemini – the world will be more open and welcoming for your ideas this week! Use every opportunity, share your ideas with others, and you will receive positive feedback! Stars will motivate you to take care of your physical well-being, which is something you have been ignoring lately. Your body is your temple!

Cancer – I know you don’t want to hear this, but do try to ask someone to help you. Otherwise, you may end up making a mess! You may change your opinion about some person or event. The alignment of the stars may reveal new facts and a new path!

Leo – people around you may be too sensitive and emotional this week! Maintain patience and do help them. Do not allow pride to stop you from using opportunities. Sometimes it is best to swallow a toad early in the morning, let you encounter something even more disgusting later on.

Virgo – the stars say romance is in the air. This week may also mark the end for some important stage in your life! The week may become full of misunderstandings as well – people may misinterpret information or you may not be very clear in your explanations! It is best to speak clearly if you want to avoid the latter!

Libra – the stars will affect you in a very positive way: you will be able to notice new opportunities and paths to follow even at evenings, when everyone is tired and wasted. Use this week to seek out priorities and evaluate your achievements! You may yet notice new and unused opportunities.

Scorpio – your patience may slowly whittle away, because things will keep going wrong. You may want to try and vent your emotions if this happens – it may help. Don’t worry too much: you will find solutions. You just need to be patient and endure this period.

Sagittarius – you may be required to change plans. Don’t worry – it will be for the best. Impulsiveness is in your nature. Learn to live with it, and it will never get your off track. There is a high probability that your impulsiveness will allow you to do something interesting this week.

Capricorn – your dreams are not that far away. This week, the stars will inspire you to reach out for your dreams more than ever! Visualize them! Put on paper your goals and objectives. Do try to follow a plan in this. This way you will avoid making a mess.

Aquarius – use this week to sort out your thoughts and your inner world! Don’t ignore difficulties – look them in the eyes instead! If you avoid difficulties, you will have to run away from them for a very long time.

Pisces – everything may come to a full stop this week. This is not a bad thing – use this time to restore yourself from the inside and have another look at your environment. Even though some things may not go as planned, it does not always mean something bad. Sometimes failure motivates you more than success and the end result ends up even better.
