Horoscopes for April 18, 2014

By
From page B13 | April 18, 2014 |

This is Good Friday and the last day of the high-energy Aries sun. It’s time to slow down and approach life as a marathon instead of a sprinting race. If you think that your many responsibilities do not allow you the extravagance of doing something nice for yourself each day, it’s a sign that your life is dangerously out of balance.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maintaining relationships energizes you – or at least it should. If a certain friend always leaves you feeling drained, it’s something to consider carefully and change right away.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It takes time to regain your concentration after an interruption. That’s why you can save yourself a lot of frustration by preventing interruptions before you start your important work.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Leave the distant future loose as you structure the immediate future. It makes you feel powerful to plan today, tomorrow and three days from now. Anything farther out comes with the possibility of unnecessary stress.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Just because you fit into a situation doesn’t mean you belong there. Many would be thrilled to have your contributions to their scene, and yet unless you also are thrilled there, it’s a bad match.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). So what if you don’t win the top honor today? Maybe you’re not the best there is at this task, and that should be fine. Think in terms of improvement. Every improvement counts.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t always feel comfortable letting another person take care of you, but unless you are vulnerable, you won’t be able to connect as deeply as you would like with that certain someone.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be assigning tasks. Be careful to match people to the work they are likely to succeed in, as this is what builds bonds. If they do not succeed, the bond erodes.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Though you usually prefer to be treated like everyone else around you, the person who strategically chooses the right moment to treat you like the unique and special person you are will win your heart.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In some ways, you feel more fulfilled when you are around a certain person than you do when you are not. It may even frighten you. For now, though, enjoy the dynamic as a sign of love gone right.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What good is being smart enough to know better unless you act on that knowledge? This is why most of your day will be spent in motion. You’ll be busily working out your inklings.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll gravitate toward emotionally healthy people. They live with ease and hardly ever find themselves in the middle of drama. Being around this type, even for a few hours, will make your whole weekend better.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The person who is trying to impress you may be doing so without being totally conscious of his or her own motives. Be gentle, as there is more ego on the line here than is readily apparent.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll enjoy a minor degree of fame over the next 10 weeks, and if you choose, you can turn it into more. May shows you giving back or paying forward. June bonds your heart with another’s, and you’ll joyfully take on a huge challenge together. Move quickly in September to take advantage of changes in your industry. Virgo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 22, 48 and 18.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You’ll communicate differently depending on which medium you use. Face-to-face would be best. TAURUS: Just as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, relationships are only as strong as their most vulnerable areas. Work on the things that bother you. GEMINI: Your smile changes depending on the face at which you are smiling. CANCER: It is natural for relationships to grow apart and together at different intervals. LEO: The rules for finding a mate will be similar to the rules for finding a second cat: Similar ages and energy levels matter. VIRGO: Your friend’s opinion of a date will be remarkably astute. LIBRA: Don’t talk about your ideas; just act on them so that later you have something really exciting to talk about. SCORPIO: Things are very different in theory than they are in reality – adjust your expectations accordingly. SAGITTARIUS: You try to solve problems yourself whenever you can, which is far more attractive than neediness. CAPRICORN: You confidently let people have as much space as they need and more. AQUARIUS: You’ll discover another talent worth developing. PISCES: A date shouldn’t feel like an interview or a presentation. If it does, there’s not enough two-way fun happening.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Sagittarius and Taurus people are adventurers with complementary approaches. Fiery Sagittarius gets by on luck, wit and charm, while earthy Taurus prefers to prepare, work hard and apply natural strength and stamina to the journey. These two make a solid romantic team, but that’s not the only configuration in which this relationship would work well. They also make great business partners and BFFs.
