Horoscopes for April 27, 2014

By
From page C4 | April 27, 2014 |

The Taurus sun energy is patient and steady, reminding us that even the softest water can cut a canyon through the mountain. Gentleness has great power indeed and always wins out in the end. The moon in Aries argues that when we do not have the benefit of thousands of years, we need to be stronger in our efforts to make a mark.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll break up a kind of bottleneck situation this afternoon. Because you’re so decisive, you’ll get things moving when others around you are stuck between options.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People who look alike are in fact very different. Generalizations lead to mistakes. Go carefully and respectfully as you find out exactly whom you are dealing with.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You feel that you have something to prove, if only to yourself. Let those inclined to worry do just that, while you concern yourself with how you can live to the fullest.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). A new area of interest opens up. The first step to a good education in the matter is to develop a sense of what is worth knowing and what is not. Trust your instincts.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Is peace something to find or to make? It depends on the moment. Today’s circumstances will not represent a naturally occurring peace, but your adjustments in the name of serenity will change that.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may feel misunderstood, but don’t mope about it. Instead, take it as a sign that you’re on to something unusual and maybe even great. This is worth exploring deeper.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you can tolerate a degree of social discomfort, you’ll quickly see the benefit of giving your best to a highly competitive situation. Many were called, few will be chosen.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll play an important role in the exchange of goods and services. You’ll strike a deal when your prospect wants the close as much as or more than you do. You’ll be most pleased with the way things shake out.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The one who is talking quite a lot (presumably because he or she is in the know) is far less wise than the quiet one in the corner who admittedly knows very little.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your timing is impeccable. You have a way of unintentionally showing up right when and where your presence will be most needed, appreciated and lauded.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your curious mind wants to be satisfied, and yet there are many questions that will never be answered. The trick is to spend your mental energy in rewarding places.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What feels comfortable and right to you is very different from what another finds tolerable. You’ll be astonished at what some people choose. Matters of taste will determine destiny.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’re not interested in what’s easy. What you want will be difficult and will require a concentrated effort, which won’t deter you in the least. May brings the first of many small breakthroughs that eventually will lead to an important meeting in August. The financial part picks up in September. Relax in style in November. Leo and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 3, 38, 20 and 44.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The solar eclipse and the new moon in Taurus will be highly motivational and will favor those working on long-term goals. Maintaining the stamina it takes to go the distance will be a mental game. It will help if you do not fall prey to the evils of comparison. While a degree of comparison is necessary for the development of any person or project, it is easily taken too far under these skies. You’ll have better luck improving when you keep your eyes on your own scene. Inappropriate demands lead to discouragement. Anyway, if you’re comparing yourself to the airbrushed fake version of a human being, of course you’re going to come up short. Even the real person in the picture can’t compare to his or her manipulated image. And if you’re comparing the work you did alone, you shouldn’t expect it to measure up to polished group efforts.

On Friday, Venus leaves the wisdom of Pisces to travel through the energetic, youthful ream of Aries. This is a rather self-centered placement for the goddess of love, but there’s a great deal to be gained from a bit of selfishness. After all, kindness begins at home. Venus challenges us to find as many ways to be kind to ourselves as possible.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “Duck Dynasty” star Si Robertson is a preacher, hunter, duck-call maker, buck commander and one of last year’s hottest Halloween costumes. An earthy Taurus born under an adventurous Sagittarius moon, he has three planets (Mars, Saturn and Pluto) in entertaining Leo and can’t help but bring color (or camouflage, as the case may be) to the lives of others.
