APRIL 2018


StarScoop: Aries-born Natasha Lyonne captured my attention in the series “Orange Is the New Black.” Her outstanding career began at age 6 on “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse” and continued with a host of movies.

There is no doubt that Lyonne is entertaining and vibrant, with all the qualities needed to be a star. But lurking within is a dark side that she has not tried to hide on screen or off, and it has probably contributed to her talent and success.

Lyonne can swivel quickly from one thing to the next, looking for the unknown and unfamiliar. She has a chart that is anything but peaceful, mostly consisting of highs and lows.

The past couple of years have not been easy for her, with temptations that may have given her food for thought. With transiting Jupiter favoring a great deal of her chart until the fall, she will be where she wants to be before late 2018 throughout 2019, when temptation will set in, making it necessary for her to avoid indulgent behavior yet again.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Ups and downs will keep you on your toes. Separate your emotions when it comes to taking care of responsibilities. Don’t give up what you’ve worked so hard to accomplish.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Focus on yourself and changes you want to make. Be secretive until you have had time to assess, source out and set plans in motion.
