Horoscopes for April 29, 2014

By
From page B7 | April 28, 2014 |

The solar eclipse in Taurus made auspicious connections, setting a pattern of positive and steady forward movement. Neptune, the planet of dreams, and Jupiter, the good luck planet, will voice their agreement. Good things can and will happen as we set our intentions on doing that which will benefit the most people.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Complex challenges abound, and you know better than to believe in a one-solution-fits-all scenario. You’ll take each one as it comes and carefully sort everything out. This is how you become someone’s hero.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Believing in yourself is beside the point today. You just have to get in there and do the job. Having done something is the best evidence you have that it can be done again.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You want to perfect your skills before you jump into the ring “for real,” but “for real” will happen sooner than you think. There won’t be time for perfection, but there will be plenty of time to get good enough.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your choices will affect people, a responsibility you don’t take lightly. You keep thinking about what would be the best option for everyone involved. You’ll go far with this intention.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re not enjoying yourself as much as you could be. Relieve the pressure. Can you shake it off? Can someone take it for you? Figure out what needs to happen to lighten your load.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). New on the scene, you’ll respectfully fit into a situation and fulfill the needs of those who are already established. You can always show off later if you want, but there’s no benefit to doing so today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Run your plan by a few people before you give it a whirl. Pay especially close attention to the response of your water-sign friends: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. They may even have some eerily psychic advice.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may be afraid that if you’re not tough on yourself you’ll go soft. But there are benefits to loosening your grip on the controls. For starters, less stress equals better health.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). For now, be open-minded and investigate options you might not have considered before. You think you want freedom, but you’ll thrive in a highly structured environment and enjoy it thoroughly.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). New ventures always come with a certain amount of chaos, and today’s amount will feel just right: enough to keep you excited but not enough to overwhelm you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you feel the rub between you and a certain someone, don’t take it as a sign that the relationship is doomed. The opposite may be true. You can’t polish a jewel without friction.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll act first, and if there is to be any support for your actions, it will come only after your plan is already in motion. Then you’ll have to re-evaluate to decide whether or not you still want the support.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. A hobby or talent will take focus in May, connecting you with opportunities for growth and change. You may even move to take advantage of an opportunity. June will be a celebration of love. Younger people and teammates will make you proud. Dealings in July set you up for a November victory. Capricorn and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 3, 14, 37 and 45.

VENUS IN PISCES: Are you putting a great deal of energy into your love life these days? Many people are on “coast” as Venus transits through Pisces, the sign that likes to go with the flow. Venus in Pisces is like a supermodel in a T-shirt: a stunningly beautiful effect with minimal effort.

Pisces is a wise, fluid part of the sky, highlighting the more creative and sensitive aspects of love. On Friday, this tone changes. The masculine energy of Aries is not the same kind of comfortable fit. Relationships get tumultuous, finicky and feisty in the four weeks during which Venus moves through the realm of the Aries warrior. The next three days are a chance to prepare for a potentially bumpy ride.

Whatever state your love life is in now, take stock. Moments of reflection are favored, as is talking to a trusted friend or mentor. Journal writing has huge benefits. Many people don’t realize their deeper feelings about relationships because they don’t take the time to connect with what’s going on at a subconscious level. If you can relax and get honest with yourself, what you learn may be healing, surprising, cathartic or just interesting.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Taurus comedy king Jerry Seinfeld stands out from his fellow comedians in many ways, including his emphasis on keeping his material clean. The web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” features conversations between Seinfeld and friends while getting coffee in a classic car. Incidentally, fellow comic Jay Leno is another Taurus who shares an appreciation for classic cars.
