Horoscopes for April 11, 2014

From page B13 | 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 a certain choice.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re a favorite among your group today. Since you are likely to get what you expect, it behooves you to keep those expectations high and, more importantly, to let the people around you know exactly what they are.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Growth is rarely a function of haphazard luck, and though expansion often thrives on a little whimsy, it’s usually based on systematic efforts. In short, you expect to work hard, and you will.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your curious mind will be drawn to answer the question of how things are accomplished. But right now your main concern should be that they are indeed accomplished. Strive for concrete results.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Even though you know what you can do, the others will need proof, and not only the proof that you can provide, but also the proof that testimonials, references, happy customers and a good reputation can provide.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll have to be firm to get what you need. People will respond quickly to your soft words spoken with confidence. Soft words spoken with trepidation, however, will be interpreted as weakness.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Everything you do, including the efforts that don’t work at all, is part of your personal game. The wins and the losses are equally necessary, so don’t put more stock in one over the other.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A person who doesn’t seem to be contributing much to the scene is more powerful than you think. This person’s absence would be greatly felt, perhaps even more so than his presence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Money is part of the game, but it’s not the most important part by a long shot. Much of what’s being exchanged is far more valuable than money, and because you realize this, you’ll be favored in today’s interactions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Don’t relinquish your control or humble yourself to anyone. Treat everyone as equals. Whether their job pays more or less than yours is completely irrelevant.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll make a clear delineation between work and play. When you work, you are all about service. You will share every skill and product you can to help others attain their goals. When you play, focus on you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The followed and the followers are kindred spirits. If you can appreciate something, it is either already inside you or the potential of it is a part of who you are.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be pleasant and accommodating to others. The deeper souls among them will see into your more serious and profound side. It takes one to know one.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll know which sacrifices are necessary and which won’t be worthwhile. The next seven weeks see you accomplishing a fitness- or image-related goal, and someone special notices big-time in May. Love sends you to new places. October brings specialized training. Finances are best in September and November. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 39, 24, 2 and 36.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Instead of pursuing love, put yourself in a position where it can surprise you. TAURUS: The level of boldness with which someone speaks to you says more about his or her intentions than any of the words that are spoken. GEMINI: You think you know what you have, but you don’t. That’s why it’s so fun to hear your admirers talk about you. CANCER: A flattering picture of yourself is a necessity in today’s social media society, and there will be many applications for it. LEO: You will use your charms to make other people feel charming. VIRGO: Sooner or later, your intentions will be known, so why not get to the point and make it sooner? You’ll like what happens next. LIBRA: You’ll experience lovely kisses. SCORPIO: You’ll feed people just a little information at a time, and they’ll be drawn in. SAGITTARIUS: If you’re wondering what you saw in someone, it was what you wanted to see. CAPRICORN: You’re like a cellphone losing battery juice: Get close to the one who charges you up. AQUARIUS: Since no one cares what you can do better than them, you’ll focus on what you can do together and win hearts. PISCES: Plain and simple, you’ll be lucky in love.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: As the Virgo moon reflects the light of the Aries sun, these two signs become aware of a growing attraction between them. This is sweeter between longtime couples who already have experienced the ups and downs of romance. The relationship can be complicated; therefore, periods of uninterrupted simpatico are well deserved and well enjoyed. When it’s good, it’s very good indeed!
