Horoscopes for April 16, 2014

By
From page B7 | 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 pining for a different reality.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your inner voice sometimes sounds like a wise teacher and other times like a petulant child. Today, those two sides of you will argue over each other in a heated debate.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Social gatherings will be a necessary part of work. You make things easy on yourself when you remember to include the person who finds it easy to carry on a conversation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Most people have a limited and selective short-term memory. Your most accurate point of view is achieved when you entertain your own perception with some measure of doubt.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are an original. You see the same things as everybody else but think about and react to them in a totally different way. Because of this, you will be an irreplaceable asset to your group.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want to acquire as much knowledge as you can about your area of interest, even if that means learning the ugly side of it. The unsavory truths signify a rite of passage.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is so satisfying to give your gifts to those who need them most and will appreciate them. Finding these people takes time, though, so be patient.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Two teams will have the same chance of winning with the same resources and conditions. But only one team will win. Your competitive nature will have you looking for an advantage so you can press it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The miners weren’t the only ones to get rich in the gold rush. Even richer were those in the business of selling shovels. You have access to some kind of shovel-equivalent today. Do you know what it is yet?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The human mind is tricky. If you try too hard to forget something, you’ll remember it well, and if you try too hard to remember something, you’ll forget it. The key is to take it easy and wipe “try” out of your vocabulary.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You become comfortable in a group, and it’s easier to be yourself. As you learn more about the person you are, it will become much easier to shed the habits you procured when you didn’t know yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll get through a long boring stretch when you make up your mind not to be bored by it. There is much to experience here, but you have to bring your imagination to it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your high level of responsibility extends to the company you keep. The misbehavior of someone you know will cause you to look at your own actions to make sure you are not committing the same offenses.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You do what you really want to do this year. Money and prestige have nothing to do with your decision-making process. You’ll spot an excellent opportunity and move quickly to realize its potential. June aligns you with a group of people who share your values and want to make the same difference that you do. Libra and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 28, 31, 26 and 42.

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. 3: Change the cast of characters in your friendship lineup.

If you’re hanging out with the same people, you’re going to fall into the same patterns. Branch out, and you’ll notice that the conversation, activities and interactions follow an entirely new path. The addition of even one new friend is enough to shake up the whole social dynamic so you’re living in the now moment instead of replaying the same dramas over and over.

Tip No. 4: Realize that feeling can be nothing more than a habit.

Those burdened by emotional baggage often fall into feeling bogged down and sad by virtue of habit. Feeling a certain way feels comfortable and becomes a vibrational set point. Neuropaths are built in the brain to lead back to that feeling for no other reason than that it has become a familiar place to reside emotionally. Simply deciding on the feeling you would like to have instead may be enough to move you toward creating it. The more often you conjure the new feeling the easier it will be to do so.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Aries actor Martin Lawrence had a dream of becoming a boxing champ, but he reconsidered after a particularly brutal fight. Many would consider comedy to be the more difficult of the two professions, and if comedian lingo is any indication, they have a point. If the set is good, the comedian “kills” or “slays” it. Whether in boxing or comedy, Aries is the sign of the warrior, ready to do battle.
