Horoscopes for April 2, 2014

By
From page B5 | April 02, 2014 |

To rebel against those who nurture and raise us is a natural step in life’s cycle. Children grow and fly from the nest. Workers learn enough to become the boss. With the Aries sun at a terse angle to Jupiter in Cancer, there is tension around the maternal forces in our lives. Mercury and Saturn form a trine in support of this process.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Because you get along with others so well, you’ll be able to leverage your relationships to get what you need and strike upon mutually beneficial arrangements.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll feel slightly indulgent, but that won’t stop you from luxuriating in self-care today. By taking excellent care of yourself, you are giving something special and precious to your loved ones: you at your best.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A relationship will have you adjusting your expectations again. It doesn’t mean you were wrong before; it just means you’re changing with the times.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Nagging is immature, but often the people who rely on this style of communication are in committed relationships and are old enough to know better. You’ll now be inclined to distance yourself from nagging influences.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You make room for the people you want in your life, and so does everyone else. If you feel like you have to nudge your way into someone’s life, or if someone is doing that to you, it’s not a good match right now.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In some sense, you’ll have to face the music. You’d rather do this sooner than later. Maybe it won’t be as smooth and graceful as you’d like, but it will be done with, and then you can move on to a happier tune.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People who don’t know the real you but love an idea they have about you are giving you a love you can’t feel. When you show the real you, you increase your chances of having true love in your life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ve had many ties with people. Some have tested you, and others have taught you. You’re wiser for all the people you’ve known, which is why you’ll see that today’s relationship opportunity is a good one.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your best is good enough. Your worst isn’t so bad. All the work you’ve done has counted toward something. You only need to keep going to live the truth of these statements.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Too many routine days in a row will make life speed by. You can pull the reins on time and slow down the hours by engaging in a brand-new experience. It all starts by saying “yes.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The information you’ve gathered in the past few days will be put to good use. For instance, now that you know how the person who came before you went wrong, you’ll be sure to get that part right.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Many people are happy that you’re in a situation you enjoy, and yet talking, tweeting or posting about it too much will quickly change that. It’s a good time to keep your life semi-private.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll often leave room for serendipity, and she won’t disappoint you. She’ll tickle your funny bone, introduce you to odd characters and send you on a delightfully pointless ride. Next month brings a source of family pride and an exciting relationship development. June and September are about turning a big profit. Cancer and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 31, 20, 4 and 14.

FRIENDSHIP ADVICE FROM VENUS: This Venus transit, which began on March 5, has been particularly favorable for platonic love. This type of love sometimes gets a bad rap. Singles pursuing partnership often complain about being relegated to the “friend zone” and will employ strategies to steer clear of that category. Yet, from preschool to old age, companionate relationships are what primarily feed our social needs. And there are even those who never experience romance and are content within the comfort of close friends. Aquarius focuses the love goddess on the kind of love that doesn’t often take over one’s life in flames of passion. On these final days of Venus in Aquarius, the love goddess has a few words of advice on the topic of friendship.

Venus says: New experiences are as important to friendship as routines. A stellar platonic relationship requires shared fresh experiences to thrive, just as other kinds of relationships do. Without the spark of novelty, friendships will atrophy. Venus suggests 10 percent to 20 percent newness. So when making plans with friends, avoid returning to the same haunts again and again, discussing the same topics, bringing the same side dishes to the potluck, etc. Make an effort to keep it fresh by braving some new ideas.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Born on this day in 1805, the great Aries storyteller Hans Christian Andersen emerged from humble beginnings to pen some of the most popular fairytales of all time, such as “The Little Mermaid,” ”Thumbelina” and “The Ugly Duckling.” His stories and their themes are so often echoed through modern media, they have become a part of our collective consciousness. Andersen’s natal Mars was in entertaining Leo.
