Horoscopes for April 19, 2014

By
From page B7 | April 19, 2014 |

The sun leaves Aries, the first-born sign of the zodiac associated with identity, youth and the warrior spirit, for a steadier section of sky. Taurus energy is associated with strength, stamina, long-term goals and material wealth. In the weeks to come, we will be concerned with quality over quantity and long-term over immediate gratification.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you haven’t learned how to throw a party with minimal effort, this is your lucky day. When people decide in the spur of the moment to meet at your place, you’ll figure it out quickly.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Try not to identify so strongly with your mistakes. Just because you mess up sometimes doesn’t make you a bad person. Forgive yourself. Bonus: It will make you more compassionate toward others.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may experience an instant attraction to someone you don’t know. Getting to know this person could reinforce or erode the attraction. Your best bet is to say “hello” and find out quickly.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You got into a situation by following your instincts and attractions. Today you’ll come to a point in the journey in which a conscious, reasonable decision must be made about what to do next.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It takes a great deal of creativity to put a positive spin on things. You’re a discerning person, but if you can get through the day insulting nothing and no one, you’ll win a prize reserved for the diplomatic and optimistic.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Winning or losing the battle looks pretty much the same today: like battling. The real winners are those who find something to agree on without a fight. Keep the communication flowing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don’t be afraid of your intense emotions. It is the emotional heights you are capable of reaching that will define your experience of the next three days.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Many a day is wasted in trying to prolong it. Today you would rather burn your hours in passionate, inefficient and possibly pointless ways and create glowing memories in the process.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you provide people with reasons to accept you, you’ll earn acceptance but feel nothing. If you don’t make any effort and are accepted anyway, you’ll feel loved.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Wishing to appear friendly but not overeager, you may finally admit to yourself that certain people make you nervous. It will take minimal exploration into your own psyche to determine why.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may need more attention than usual today. Give it to yourself rather than letting this need impede the social flow. Hint: Sometimes it’s better to listen and refrain from sharing a similar story.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are those who would rather act aloof and trigger your fear of rejection than risk being hurt themselves. These kinds of games would have worked on you in another era, but right now they’ll seem like a waste of your time.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll compare yourself with others only to the extent that it helps you maintain a competitive edge. You’ll strike an admirable balance between love and work. Also, you’ll be funny when it counts, and that’s part of your appeal to your many followers. There’s a windfall in June and September. You’ll be enmeshed in a type of family in August. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 2, 33, 35 and 17.

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. 6: Write it into a story.

If it feels too painful to revisit certain memories, try putting them into a fantasy context in which events are different but have a similar impact, and they are happening to someone else – a character of your own creation. By turning your story in such a way that the main character overcomes the adversity, part of you will feel capable of the same victory. Identifying with the hero, you will free yourself to behave like one, and not just in your story, but beyond.

Tip No. 7: Find or create a “letting go” ritual.

Rituals are a way of symbolically processing life so that we may realistically process life more easily. Rituals strike at a primal place in us and resonate deeply in our minds and bodies. Rituals have real power, even those that we make up to suit ourselves. If you treat a ritual as if it’s sacred, it will become so.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: James Franco reportedly started taking acting classes to overcome his shyness and wound up finding his life’s career path in the process. Born on the cusp of Aries and Taurus, Franco has planets in both signs. His sun and Mercury are in high-energy Aries, and his communicative Mercury is in sensual Taurus. His Mars in Leo promises plentiful adventures in show business.
