Horoscopes for April 15, 2014

By
From page B5 | April 14, 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 partnerships that has been there all along.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Streamlining your life doesn’t have to be a painful process, and you have a shining incentive for lightening your load. You feel absolutely ready to lose what you’ll never miss.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It isn’t necessary to categorize each thought you have as either true or false. There’s much that can’t be known. However, discerning between helpful and not helpful thoughts will enhance your well-being.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Whatever the source of your greatest indecision may be, today you will feel clearer on the subject. You may even be ready to make a choice. Rest assured, you can always change your mind later if you want to.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you have the feeling that there won’t be a perfect or right moment, you’re correct. So just begin now and proceed. Tonight you’ll laugh with someone very dear to you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A proverb suggests that whenever you point your finger at someone, there are three pointing back at you. Today, you’ll need to be even more careful than usual in how you describe and discuss others.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will realize the benefit in something you once considered to be a mistake. Given the choice, maybe you wouldn’t repeat it, but you’ll be glad for how everything worked out.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll feel inventive, and it will be fun for you to dream up ideas and ponder the different ways that you might make them happen. Tonight your knack for special relations will be useful.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A bit of skepticism will prove healthy. You don’t always have to agree with your own thoughts. Just because it’s running through your head doesn’t make it yours.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll do the right thing at the right time, which sometimes happens to be the wrong thing. You’ll commit to fun and folly while you have the chance.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Even though you are well aware of the risks involved in a situation, you prefer to be around the optimistic people who don’t mention the dangers at every turn.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re mighty influential today, and the best way to apply this superpower is to convince yourself to do what’s good for you. Once you convince yourself, it won’t matter to you who else is convinced.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You were given the power of great personal drive for a reason, and you’ll use it well. To do what it takes to make your plans happen more or less the way you imagine them is an act of love and self-respect.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’re duty-bound to overcome whatever stopped you from achieving last year’s goal. You will succeed, provided you refuse to give up. Family supports a dream venture in May. June brings romantic excitement. Singles spark with new types; couples adventure together. Your popularity spikes in July and August. Leo and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 45, 28, 15, 39 and 26.

PROCESSING THE PAST WITH PLUTO: The retrograde status of Pluto in Capricorn begins a five-month cycle of processing the past. If you dread facing the “yuck” of your yesterdays, have no fear. There is more than one way to overcome emotional baggage.

Tip No. 2: Work from the outside in.

Those who are averse to working from the inside out may have a better experience working from the outside in. You can break the hold that the past has over you by freshening your environment at home and work. This keeps you moving in current time instead of reliving yesterday’s same old flow. New paint or a rearrangement of furniture won’t take all that long, but such rearrangements will change your feng shui and, by extension, your fortunes.

As you adjust your environment, think about the role of light. Letting light into your environment will lighten the heart, as well. You also can lighten up by getting rid of useless, worn and ugly physical possessions. As you purge the physical evidence of the past, your mind will follow the trend.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Seth Rogen was a teen standup comedian who dropped out of high school to make his Hollywood dreams come true. Born when the sun, Mercury and Jupiter were all in daring Aries, the director, writer and movie star now enjoys A-list perks and responsibilities. Look for him in the upcoming comedy “The Interview,” which is about an unwitting talk-show host turned unqualified assassin.
