Horoscopes for April 20, 2014

By
From page D4 | April 20, 2014 |

If you realize that you are pinning your happiness on something that you could possibly lose, don’t worry. You’re in cosmic accordance. The nature of beauty is that it’s fleeting. The nature of love is risk. As lucky Jupiter opposes intense Pluto, we are made vividly aware of life’s contrasts. Let this awareness help you value what you have.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will be drawn to elegance but repelled by extravagance. The day’s events will impress you by striking a perfect balance, seemingly effortlessly.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s not what you say; it’s the way you say it that will delight your audience. Whether confiding in one person or entertaining dozens, you’ll inspire smiles and laughter.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The spirit of rebirth is alive in you. You’ll have the energy to pursue something you chased unsuccessfully in the past, only this time you’ll be much smarter and luckier.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Each moment you spend in preparation is time well invested. You will burst onto the scene and attract all the attention you need to win friends, earn support and generate the right kind of excitement.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you don’t have nearly enough of what you need, consider this to be a blessing. It’s better to be a little hungry than too full. Hunger is exciting. It causes action. Gluttony is repulsive and causes inertia.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It feels to you like the whole world is a garden, and you are the master gardener with a thumb as green as Midas’ was gold. Whether you’re growing friendships or ferns, you’ll be wildly successful.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Faith is not solely tied to religion, though it may help you to create some kind of ritual around whatever you believe in order to weave it into your psyche and let it shape your daily life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s been said that you can’t hunt two hares with one dog. Then again, maybe you’re not in it for the rabbit stew. You’d rather celebrate the bunnies and the dogs and somehow make them all get along.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be in the mood to start something interesting and include as many people as possible. When you plant the seeds of friendship and fun, you will get results in unexpected places.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There’s a time for discipline and a time to enjoy life in a more relaxed way. You can trust yourself to know the limits without standing guard inside your own head.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A kind of spring-cleaning is happening in your personal life. A clearing has taken place, and you now will feel free to enjoy the empty space for a while before anything else comes to fill the opening.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This is one of those days when it really doesn’t matter what you choose; it only matters that you choose. Make it easy on yourself. Investigate the choices of those you admire.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your imagination is whipped up and ready to aid you in the creation of a new kind of personal life in which you are freer to express yourself. Next month brings a fortuitous love connection. Couples embark on a joint business endeavor. You’ll become an authority figure in June. Contracts will be signed in August. Taurus and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 33, 11 and 28.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Easter is classified as a “moveable feast,” meaning the date changes according to the sun and the moon instead of being fixed to a date on the civil calendar. Easter comes on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the March equinox. This year, the holiday of resurrection occurs on the later side, hopefully giving the weather a fair chance to catch up with the springtime theme. Jupiter and Pluto cooperate, as well, if a bit heavily, as they pull at each other from opposite sides of the zodiac, encouraging us to look at the polarities in all things: dark/light, good/evil, man/woman, bitter/sweet. Nothing that stands alone can be understood. We need the comparison of its polar opposite to truly appreciate its qualities.

Mars begins a retrograde cycle on Wednesday, April 23, playing into a larger aspect involving Uranus, Jupiter, Mars and Pluto. On the same day, Mercury advances to Taurus, providing a grounding influence for the volatile skies. Anchor yourself in the basics that make life good: health, appreciation of the natural world and the love you share in these times.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: When she was 2 years old, Taurus Carly Rose Sonenclar imitated the singer she saw on “American Idol.” A few years later, she went on to place in another televised singing competition, Simon Cowell’s “The X-Factor.” Taurus rules the throat and is the sign of powerful voices. Sonenclar was born under a Leo moon, which is the sign of entertainment.
