Horoscopes for April 10, 2014

By
From page A9 | 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 important or relevant.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). People who don’t know how to have fun by themselves don’t know how to have fun with others. You’ll delight in your time alone and later bring a playful sensibility to your social interactions.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Are you ready to leap, lunge or duck? Being able to react with a range of motion, both literally and figuratively, will give you an advantage on this fast-paced day.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You long for a time when you can say that everything you own is in good working order and is in its proper place. Such a high level of organization may or may not happen, and luckily your success does not depend on this.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When your subject knows what you want and is resistant to giving it to you, this person has yet to understand the personal benefit of saying yes (if indeed there is one). Point the way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Spell out what you want to do. Communicate slowly and clearly, assuming nothing. Do not execute your plan until the others involved know and understand what your plan is.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Where others see a lost cause, you see the potential for a real winner. Though there are many steps involved in taking an endeavor from “zero” to “hero,” if it’s a labor of love, it will be a joy and not a long, arduous process.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll work efficiently to get it done, get it right and get it out. Though you may not care who gets the credit, taking your fair share of this will be important to your future work.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are times when you’ve craved the cozy comfort of a familiar relationship, but today you’ll set your sights on something unexpected, interesting and even a little dangerous.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You only have to talk with someone for a few minutes to understand where the person is coming from. That’s why it drives you crazy when a loved one doesn’t seem to have the same “people smarts.”

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re unsure whether the other party is thinking along the same lines as you or will be amenable to your suggestions. Take the risk and find out. Say what you plan to do and see what happens.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Building rapport will be tricky business, but if you do it well, you’ll get a prize. Hint: It doesn’t always serve you to express your preferences and dislikes to those who may not agree with them.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Purpose and tenacity are your cosmic gifts, but they come with a caveat: You must use them on your own behalf, or you will later wonder why on earth you didn’t.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your underrated talents come to the fore this year. This month you make money as a result of reestablishing contact with terrific people. Work through the logistics, and in May you’ll make a smooth transition into a much better place. Singles have dream dates in June. The marriage-minded tie the knot in September. Cancer and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 4, 44, 38 and 47.

VENUS IN PISCES AND THE HEART’S INTUITION, PART FOUR: As Venus travels the intuitive realm of Pisces, she invites us to rely on our heart’s intuition for decision-making. So how can you turn up the volume on the inner guidance system that is your heart?

Tip No. 3: Confront the ego and talk its language.

The ego’s voice is louder than the heart’s, and when the ego is stressed, it speaks up with even more force than usual so that you can barely hear what the heart wants. But there’s a way to talk to your ego to get it to relax enough to allow you to hear the messages it’s trying to block. First, the ego needs to be assured that you’re not going to undermine it. Secondly, the ego is like a child that needs to play, so you can use this to your advantage. Assure your ego that it’s safe to be playful, and ask your ego to imagine that the situation is a game. Tell it, “You don’t have to change your mind. You can still want what you want. But just for the sake of pretending, can you imagine a scenario in which you want something different?”

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Aries actress and pop star Mandy Moore is lovely on screen, though she’s quickly becoming Hollywood’s voiceover queen, with several major credits including Rapunzel in “Tangled,” Cassandra in “High School USA!” and the adorable kitty Sheriff Callie in “Sheriff Callie’s Wild West.” Moore was born under the Leo moon of show business and entertainment.
