Horoscopes for April 3, 2014

By
From page A9 | April 03, 2014 |

The sun in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn argue over our notions of fate. The sun insists that fate is largely a matter of self-determination, while Pluto makes a sound case for the influence of mysterious, unseen forces. Whatever your beliefs, it’s a time to work with everything you have and invite help from benevolent forces.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you find yourself counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own, you’re not doing anyone any favors. But by keeping track of all of the good things you have going, you’ll create more blessings for another.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A careful assessment of recent activities will point to many correct moves and one error. To move forward, you will have to go back and fix the thing that didn’t quite line up right the first time.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The saying goes, “If you don’t ask, you don’t get.” Of course, asking requires that you overcome any hang-ups you have about wanting to be pursued or risking rejection. But if they say yes, isn’t it worth it?

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Time will defy your attempts to regulate it. Things seem to happen slowly and then, quite suddenly and overwhelmingly, all at once. Take several breaks along the way to catch your breath.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Because everyone really wants to talk about the elephant in the room, it only takes one comment from you to open that whole line of conversation. Why you? Because you’re the boldest one.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Aware of how small things can add up like strands of straw piled onto the proverbial camel’s back, you’ll avoid being the camel – and you’ll also try not to be the straw “piler-oner.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll come across an item of symbolic meaning and be momentarily awestruck. This artifact or scene gives your life a bit of context, and you’ll suddenly see how you fit into the bigger picture.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are not afraid of ending things that aren’t working out, but you still like to approach the cutoff with grace. In fact, you pride yourself on being able to part with things, people and situations on a sweet note.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You like to be in the driver’s seat, but not all the time. The one in the driver’s seat typically has a destination in mind, and sometimes it’s more fun when you don’t know exactly where things are going.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you know what you want, you have a laser-like focus. It won’t matter what else is going on around you – it could be total chaos and cacophony – you’ll ignore it all and move toward your goal.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Be suspicious of anyone who wants to discus the money before asking you what you need. Those who are on the up-and-up will talk about the money somewhere toward the end of their pitch.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Is it possible to be visited by a person’s essence while that person inhabits a distant place? Today you will sense the presence of a loved one while you are engaged in an activity you associate with that person.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll take on projects that reflect your beauty, taste and general aesthetic, and this attracts new people. Be careful not to let social fun lead to overindulgence! Spending time with healthy types inspires you to be at your best, too. By your next birthday, you’ll look even younger than you do now. Your financial highs come in May and August. Scorpio and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 20, 13 and 44.

FRIENDSHIP ADVICE FROM VENUS: On these final days of Venus in Aquarius, the love goddess has a few words of advice on the topic of friendship.

Venus says: Keep track, but don’t keep tabs. This sounds like contradictory advice. Put differently, letting a friendship get too out of balance with one person doing all of the giving and the other doing all of the taking is a sure way to kill the relationship. However, paying too much attention to who paid how much when and who owes whom what is against the spirit of generosity, as well as being just plain exhausting. It’s best to have a general idea of the give and take and strive to always be more on the giving side of things.

Venus says: Each friendship should be custom made. If you have several friends, it’s tempting to treat them all similarly, buying them similar birthday gifts, inviting them to similar events, talking about similar things… As efficient as it may seem to operate this way, individuals are not categories. Moving from “this is how I treat friends” to “this is how I treat you” is moving out of shallow ties based on generic behaviors and into true intimacy.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: As the publicity-seeking Amy Duncan of the recently concluded Disney series “Good Luck Charlie,” Leigh-Allyn Baker played a doting if devious mother of five. In reality, Baker is a mother of two and was nine months pregnant when she auditioned for the role of Duncan. Leave it to an energetic Aries to take on a major career move and a new baby at once with great success!
