Horoscopes for April 12, 2014

From page B5 | 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 as whole and complete.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Though your emotions defy control, you are excellent at managing them. Those who encourage you to share your feelings are the best people to include in your plans.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t take things too personally. You realize that in the course of life much will happen that you can’t control. You have a talent for taking things in stride, and it adds a lot to your likeability factor today.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be settling balances and claiming what’s yours. Use coupons, cash in on favors, and redeem rewards. If you don’t do it now, you may lose valuable opportunities.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are excited about the future, but you don’t waste too much time gazing at distant horizons. All that needs accomplishing is in a day. Do the work, and your hopes for tomorrow will be realized soon enough.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You and nature are on the same side. What you instinctively feel like doing for another person will be the best move of all. Tonight brings a healing sleep.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Instead of looking at each move you make as positive or negative, look at the larger pattern. This should take some of the pressure off. You’re in the game and doing all you can to play well. That’s what matters.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are some kinds of attention that are not good for people. Instead of filling a vacuum, they create one. Show admiration, but temper it. Refrain from putting anyone on a pedestal.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your livelihood will be enhanced by what you learn to do. You won’t find what you need to learn in a book. Fortunately, what you can’t learn from study you can learn from observation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know you have talent and ability, but you still need to hear other people acknowledge it. Their acknowledgement will be a reinforcement if ever your confidence should dip.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s not your fault that a loved one doesn’t understand you. Most people would understand you perfectly. And yet, if you want your loved one to understand, you’ll have to change your way of communicating.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The right mentor will make all of the difference in the outcome of your project. It’s not entirely true that “those who can’t do, teach.” The best teachers both “do” and “teach,” as you’ll learn today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Connecting with people depends on choosing the right thing to focus the conversation on. But if you can’t decide what the “right thing” is, settle on something that makes you happy.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You are important in the lives of friends, and they’ll demonstrate this over the next seven weeks. Your savvy social skills help to advance your career in May. A high-profile VIP figures into the action, too. June brings old relationships back to haunt you, and July features a renewal of love, complete with a romantic atmosphere. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 2, 22, 48 and 14.

VENUS IN PISCES AND THE HEART’S INTUITION, PART FIVE: 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. 4: Once you get your ego out of the way, it will be easier to hear your heart’s messages, though you should be aware that they rarely come in the form of words or images. The heart is all about feeling. If you pose a question to your heart, it is likely to answer with responses such as excitement, stress, warmth, relaxation, tightness, cold, sadness, release, invigoration and other primal reactions. Even though many of these states have similar symptoms – for instance, excitement and stress can feel pretty much the same – the heart has a way of clearly communicating whether the state is for the better or worse.

The heart won’t come up with a million reasons why you should choose A instead of B. The heart will simply feel right about A and not about B and give no reasons. That’s why following your heart sometimes requires that you take a leap of faith that is not for the faint of heart.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Happy birthday to the lovable curmudgeon of late-night television David Letterman. With recent switch-ups in the nighttime order, this Aries super-host has been a source of constancy, with the laughs and entertainment value practically guaranteed. Letterman was born under a hardworking Capricorn moon and has Mercury and Venus in Pisces, the sign of intuition and artistic sensibility.
