Horoscopes for April 21, 2014

By
From page B5 | April 21, 2014 |

The main barrier keeping us from speaking loving words is self-consciousness. With the cosmic tension between Uranus, Pluto and others, we’re so busy trying to feel comfortable that there’s very little energy left over to spend on helping others feel comfortable. It takes a confident, loving heart to rise above the usual human tendencies and share.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Would a true friend flatter you? Only harmlessly. Those who have your back won’t let you go forward with less than your best chance of success. If that means pumping your ego, so be it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). No matter how busy you get, you still put a certain amount of effort toward maintaining what you have. When things slow down, you also put effort into prospecting for new and exciting arrangements.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re good at hiding your feelings when you feel it benefits you to do so. Try not to let it become a habit or a knee-jerk reaction, though. Don’t hide your feelings unless you have a good reason.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be seeing what works with people. Once you get a reaction, you’ll know what people respond to. When you figure out why they are responding, you’ll really be onto something big.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Rainbows are not the only beautiful illusions around. There’s a colorful person in your midst who may attempt to use his or her attractiveness for personal gain.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The next small step is actually a big step. In order to take it gracefully, forget about matters of scale and just move forward in good faith and with nothing but the best intentions.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sure, everything can change in the blink of an eye. But days and decades may also go by without much change at all. Right now, you have a great deal of say in the matter, so exercise your will.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are people who keep a finger on the pulse of culture and do their best to stay current. Then there are “sheeple,” who are so enslaved by a trend that they lose all individuality. It’s better to be uncool than to be a sheeple.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You like to save things that matter, but the problem is that there is quite a lot that seems to matter to you these days, and you can’t save it all – or maybe you could, but how would you organize it?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You like familiarity to a degree, but there’s only so much you can take of the same ol’ same ol’. Luckily, the afternoon brings a situation that gets your excitement levels burbling and buzzing.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Like most people, you like your solitude as long as it’s by choice. When it’s not by choice, you’ll be uncommonly brave about it. You’d rather be alone than use another person to cope with the fear of being alone.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There may be zero evidence that your idea is a gem or that the timing of it is good, but you still feel that you’ve got something. For now, that’s enough of a reason to move forward.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Because you look for hidden meaning and seek deeper knowledge, you will learn what very few know and find a place of honor in this niche. Family rifts are fixed in May. A personal goal will be tackled in June when the right mentor shows up on the scene. August brings the first of many victories in this regard. Gemini and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 38, 24, 16 and 22.

COSMIC ANXIETY ALERT: The cardinal grand cross in the sky is made up of four squares and two oppositions. The planets involved include Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Cancer, Mars in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. For many who are sensitive to tense vibrations, the cosmic weather may trigger extra nervousness. Try these exercises to get grounded:

POUNDING GROUND: This one might seem super-silly, but for many it really works. When hit by a shot of unwanted nervous energy, find a spot of bare earth (meaning without manmade flooring, grass is fine), put both hands on your head and jump repeatedly. Imagine that your hands are sending roots down through your body and into the ground with each impact.

SLOW, DEEP, BREATH – HOLD AND RELEASE: Saying “breathe” to a tense person is a cliche for a reason: Anxiety causes people to forget to breathe. Note that deep breaths fill the belly. If your breath is making your shoulders and chest move instead of your belly, it’s too shallow of a breath. Send the breath to your belly, and try to keep your shoulders relaxed and down.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The story of Frankenstein’s monster has been a part of pop culture for over 100 years and is as fresh as ever as mankind continues to experiment with DNA and grapple with the morality of creation. “X-Men’s” James McAvoy will play Victor Von Frankenstein in the upcoming “Frankenstein” movie, and he’ll do it with the believability of his Taurus sun and the theatricality of his natal Jupiter in Leo.
