Horoscopes for April 24, 2014

By
From page A9 | April 24, 2014 |

It’s been a week of tension and unpredictable excitement. Now Mercury in grounded Taurus and an empathetic Pisces moon will try to mellow out the atmosphere lullaby-style. When the psychic winds kick up, try not to see them as inconvenient agitators, but as benevolent forces sent to gently rock us.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Note that in every deal, personal and business alike, there is a point of honorable retreat. When it’s obvious that the energy is only flowing one way and not being returned, the noble move is to back off.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be offered a tempting handout. Yes, this really is free, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth having. Before you take it, ask yourself, “If I had to pay three dollars for it, would I?”

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don’t be too concerned about temporary setbacks. They are masquerading as bigger problems than they really are. Time will pass, things will change, and you will be on top once again.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). With so much available to you at the click of a mouse, it’s a difficult time to develop patience. And yet you’ll have a beautiful relationship with a certain person in your life if you just slow down a bit.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll get 75 percent of the story, but it’s still far too soon to draw any conclusions. As it is with any good mystery, the last quarter could (and likely will) change everything.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be careful to use or manage your resources to the extent that is reasonable. Being hyper-vigilant in this regard may cause you undue stress. Strike a balance that allows you to breathe easy.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you’re in target practice without a target, is every shot a bull’s-eye, or is every shot a miserable miss? Because you’re in no mood for rhetoric, just get a target. For now, any goal will do.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your success comes from being all about relationships. You’ll make sure that anyone who deals with you is getting their needs met to the fullest extent of your ability and resources.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Take care of yourself, and you’ll find it easier to be “good.” Self-discipline won’t be hard to come by when your life is already filled with what you need, including the need for pleasure.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You deserve a stress-less day. If not today, at least set yourself up for future relaxation by avoiding commitment and obligation. Don’t agree to be at any certain place at any certain time.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your true friends and supporters are the ones who aren’t deterred by plain talk. You’ll call it as you see it, and your team will respond quickly, needing nothing more from you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you could make it happen by sheer force of will, it would have happened already. There are other factors involved. Because you understand and flow with this reality, you will be extraordinarily lucky now.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. This year you’ll develop a virtue that will enhance everything you experience: patience. It allows you to find easy solutions, keep your eye on the big picture and be an extremely pleasant force in the lives of others. May, August and October bring financial bonuses. You’ll win a race in June. Family grows in November. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 11, 19 and 27.

COSMIC ANXIETY ALERT (PART FOUR): There is good stress, and there is bad stress. The difference between the two has more to do with our reaction to the stressor than anything else. If the stress motivates us to do and be more, it’s good stress. If it constricts us or induces paralysis, panic and/or a loss of control, well, that’s the bad kind.

The current cosmic weather may trigger extra nervousness in those sensitive to tense vibrations. Monday through Wednesday featured coping exercises to help deal with anxious emotions. Even more effective may be the preventive measures taken to increase your overall resistance to stress. These directives fall under the common-sense rules for the care and feeding of human beings – the kinds of things your mother told you or should have told you. Either way, these directives are so obvious that they can be easy to overlook.

Simply put, there are 10 things we can regularly do to increase our resistance to stress. 1. Get enough sleep. 2. Eat right. 3. Exercise often. 4. Dress for the weather. 5. Express yourself. 6. Practice daily pleasure. 7. Look for the good. 8. Cultivate a support system. 9. Love them. 10. Let them love you back.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Inimitable Taurus Barbra Streisand is so multi-hyphenated that putting all of her titles into this profile would take up the entire available word count – ditto in regard to the awards she’s won, which include the Oscar, Tony, Emmy, Grammy, Golden Globe, Peabody and more. Four luminaries in steadfast Taurus and two in Leo tell the cosmic story of a tireless force in entertainment.
