Horoscopes for April 17, 2014

By
From page A9 | April 17, 2014 |

The wise Scorpio moon looks for a motive behind every action. It’s particularly helpful when examining your own motives, which are often hidden even to you. Start with your to-do list. For each item, ask: What is my motive here? If the answer is “guilt” or “obligation,” it’s safe to strike it from today’s list.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You want to be the best, and you will make every effort to occupy the top position. If you don’t get there today, call it a noble effort regardless of how you place.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Today’s project is complicated, with many moving parts. You make it look easy. Your ability to balance several things at once makes you an invaluable asset to your group.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are those who think you should suffer for your art or work. But if you’ve already suffered through your adolescence, consider that you’ve done enough suffering for a lifetime and take it easy on yourself.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). As you ponder your next move, remember that the investment of education is one that no one can take away from you. Choose your area of study very carefully, and you’ll never regret learning.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It will serve you to believe unreasonable things that most people wouldn’t consider to be true. By your thinking, if they haven’t been proved false, the possibilities remain.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be dealing in your material assets. Your choice will be between spending, saving or giving of what you have. Keep in mind that each of these choices ends in loss; it’s just a matter of timing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Someone has knocked themselves out for you. If you haven’t properly shown appreciation for this, do so now, and your personal life becomes instantly stable and fulfilling.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When people make decisions together, there’s a chance the result will be a compromise that suits no one. If there’s a better way, you’ll think of it this afternoon.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maybe you can judge a book by its cover and a movie by its poster. But you can’t judge a book by its movie. You’ll have the choice of a long journey or the shortcut that gives a mere taste of the whole experience.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You can’t lose when you sacrifice in the name of love. A sacrifice for love makes you a richer person regardless of whether you ever get back what was sacrificed.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Support your mind by giving it the conditions it needs to work best. Sleep, nutrition, fresh air and sunshine will be involved. Also required: distance from a certain tedious experience.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The future holds surprises. Treat everyone fairly. Everyone. Over time, friends have a way of becoming enemies, and enemies have been known to join forces as true friends.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Friendly to everyone, you’re never sure from whence your next luck will spring, but you’re sure it will be good, and you’re right. You’ll shake hands and make deals with VIPs. Next month’s travels will open your mind to doing things differently. You’ll follow a wild idea to full realization. Cash in at the end of November. Gemini and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 25, 4, 39 and 11.

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. 5: Reinvent yourself.

One way to prove to yourself that you are not defined by the past and the things that have happened to you is to create a new identity fashioned purely to your preferences. Think of it as an exercise in making up alter egos. Instead of settling for the trends of your times and reflecting the limitations of your culture, conjure a mental image of who you would be were you not bound by location, economics or social expectation. Write about this new character. Collect symbols and images that tell you who he or she is.

Like a gamer creating an avatar, you don’t have to adopt the first character you come up with. Play and refine your ideas. Start over from scratch time and again. When you strike on an identity that really fits, ask yourself: How can I represent this in the world in some small (or big) way?

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Aries actress Jennifer Garner will star with Steve Carell in the upcoming family comedy “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.” With her moon, Venus, Mars and Saturn all in Gemini, Garner has the flexibility of mind to find the positive side of even the worst days. In fact, it’s one of her cosmic superpowers.
