Horoscopes for April 23, 2014

Mercury in Aries has been something like listening to an audio book sped up by 1.5 times the recorded pace: The story comes faster. You still get the details, but there’s no time to answer back with your mind’s voice or relax into the emotion of it. Mercury now enters slower Taurus, giving us a […]

Horoscopes for April 22, 2014

If life came with a universal rulebook, would you learn and obey, or would you test and explore? Mercury moving fast through Aries suggests that we’ll all have to learn by trial and error, rule-breakers and rule-followers alike. Take risks and don’t be boring. It’s better to cause offense than to take a forgettable course. […]

Horoscopes for April 21, 2014

The main barrier keeping us from speaking loving words is self-consciousness. With the cosmic tension between Uranus, Pluto and others, we’re so busy trying to feel comfortable that there’s very little energy left over to spend on helping others feel comfortable. It takes a confident, loving heart to rise above the usual human tendencies and […]

Horoscopes for April 20, 2014

If you realize that you are pinning your happiness on something that you could possibly lose, don’t worry. You’re in cosmic accordance. The nature of beauty is that it’s fleeting. The nature of love is risk. As lucky Jupiter opposes intense Pluto, we are made vividly aware of life’s contrasts. Let this awareness help you […]

Horoscopes for April 19, 2014

The sun leaves Aries, the first-born sign of the zodiac associated with identity, youth and the warrior spirit, for a steadier section of sky. Taurus energy is associated with strength, stamina, long-term goals and material wealth. In the weeks to come, we will be concerned with quality over quantity and long-term over immediate gratification. ARIES […]

Horoscopes for April 18, 2014

This is Good Friday and the last day of the high-energy Aries sun. It’s time to slow down and approach life as a marathon instead of a sprinting race. If you think that your many responsibilities do not allow you the extravagance of doing something nice for yourself each day, it’s a sign that your […]

Horoscopes for April 17, 2014

The wise Scorpio moon looks for a motive behind every action. It’s particularly helpful when examining your own motives, which are often hidden even to you. Start with your to-do list. For each item, ask: What is my motive here? If the answer is “guilt” or “obligation,” it’s safe to strike it from today’s list. […]

Horoscopes for April 16, 2014

Fresh off the shakeup of yesterday’s total lunar eclipse, the Scorpio moon assesses the new hierarchy. It is naive to think that any role is superior to another – each comes with unique pressures. Since the only position you can effectively work to your advantage is the one you’re in, fully embody it rather than […]

Horoscopes for April 15, 2014

It sometimes takes a moment of doubt or the fear of losing someone to help us understand what we have in another person. The point is cosmically illustrated in the moment the full moon in Libra disappears in a shadow. The total lunar eclipse helps us understand the opportunity in our love lives and close […]

Horoscopes for April 14, 2014

While we might like to believe we are the primary engines in our lives, ignoring the influence of environmental factors and parenting would be a mistake. Pluto begins a retrograde journey through Capricorn that pulls our awareness to the authority figures that have shaped us. Being aware of their influence is the key to transcending […]

Horoscopes for April 13, 2014

This eve of the Pluto retrograde is a perfect time to explore domestic habits and root out the harmful ones. Most people know there is something they are doing on a regular basis that needs adjusting for the good of all who share this blue marble. “What’s the use of a fine house if you […]

Horoscopes for April 12, 2014

In a sense, you are always going for what sales people call “the close.” When you smile and someone smiles back, that’s a kind of close. When your request is fulfilled, that’s a close. Breaking down the details of interaction is favored under this Virgo moon. It might help you to see each small interaction […]

Horoscopes for April 11, 2014

There is no benefit to telling others what you think they need. People don’t agree to what others think they need; they agree to what makes sense to them. If you want to influence others, the practical Virgo moon suggests building a case that focuses on the many benefits others will experience because they make […]

Horoscopes for April 10, 2014

Just as the first rays of the sun show up in the sky before the sun rises over the horizon, there will be some preliminary mental tinkering that precedes a big idea. That’s why it’s important to let your thoughts dance and play under this creative Leo moon, even if those thoughts don’t seem particularly […]

Horoscopes for April 9, 2014

The lethargic areas of life will now get a jolt of electric motivation as the recent addition of the Leo moon raises the sum to four fire-sign luminaries ruling the skies. The appetite for excitement is stronger, and even the mild-mannered will be drawn to the heat. Those in the business of making life work […]

Horoscopes for April 8, 2014

If Aries energy were a light, it would be a laser beam. If Libran energy were a light, it would be the soft, fuzzy glow of indirect sunlight behind clouds. The opposition of the sun in aggressive Aries and Mars in diplomatic Libra brings a clash of viewpoints. However you see your situation, there’s someone […]

Horoscopes for April 7, 2014

Some people find it fun to be chased; others would rather do the chasing. If you know the preferences of the person you are dealing with, you can structure your interaction accordingly. If you don’t, you’ll need to be very attuned to the messages people are sending. The intuitive Cancer moon helps with that. ARIES […]

Horoscopes for April 6, 2014

The Cancer moon insists on finding relaxation inside the safe confines of home, sweet home. If that is not a relaxing place, the day is likely to be dedicated to making it more so. What needs to change? The feng shui? Houseguests? The attitude of family members or habits of the pets? Whatever it is, […]

Horoscopes for April 5, 2014

The love goddess waves goodbye to friendly, philanthropic Aquarius and slips into soulful Pisces. While she’s getting used to this part of the sky, there’s the sense that someone pushed the relationship “pause” button, perhaps for no good reason. Relax into the sensation of frozen time and enjoy it for what it is. Things are […]

Horoscopes for April 4, 2014

You may feel momentarily helpless to change what needs changing, but this, too, will pass as your perspective shifts. Venus in Aquarius helps with a public service announcement: You may be spinning on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam, but everyone you know, love, admire, despise or strive to be like is on […]

Horoscopes for April 3, 2014

The sun in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn argue over our notions of fate. The sun insists that fate is largely a matter of self-determination, while Pluto makes a sound case for the influence of mysterious, unseen forces. Whatever your beliefs, it’s a time to work with everything you have and invite help from benevolent […]

Horoscopes for April 2, 2014

To rebel against those who nurture and raise us is a natural step in life’s cycle. Children grow and fly from the nest. Workers learn enough to become the boss. With the Aries sun at a terse angle to Jupiter in Cancer, there is tension around the maternal forces in our lives. Mercury and Saturn […]

Horoscope for April 1, 2014

The Taurus moon has a twist for this April Fool’s Day. Rather than fooling people with pranks, the Taurus moon is primarily interested in the opportunities born of the foolishness of others. For instance, people will sell costly items for dirt-cheap when they need money fast, and there are those who don’t know good love […]

Horoscopes for March 31, 2014

Aries is a fire sign with a penchant for pyromania. The sun, the moon and Uranus are all in this powerful part of the sky now, and so whether burning calories or old memories, excess energy or hours of the night, you should have no fear of striking that match. It’s also an excellent time […]

Horoscope for March 30, 2014

The new moon in the firstborn sign of the zodiac is an opportunity to embark on a fresh mission. If the quest happens to involve a prize you never thought you could have, all the better. This dark moon has a way of making perceived limits disappear in the shadows of your mind while illuminating […]

Horoscope for March 29, 2014

Maybe every day should be a fresh start, but even cockeyed optimists would agree that the concept is easier said than put into practice. Human behavior is built on habit. We wouldn’t advance very far if we had to make each day up from scratch. Get ready to take advantage of tomorrow’s fresh start under […]

Horoscope for March 28, 2014

Though most people appreciate gestures of respect, they tend to put the highest value on those that are commensurate with what has been earned. Too much deference makes even a very powerful person suspicious, while not enough causes obvious irritation. The dynamics lining up between Venus, Mars and Jupiter bring awareness to such things. ARIES […]

Horoscope for March 27, 2014

A friendly Aquarius moon rules the day, and an introspective Pisces moon takes over the evening, and so two distinctly different moods prevail. What seems like a good idea early on may, a few hours later, seem childish, impractical or even outright ridiculous. There’s no need to make a hasty final judgment — tomorrow offers […]
