Horoscopes for April 30, 2014

From page B7 | April 30, 2014 |

Each environment has a specific culture. Questioning authority is a tenet of some cultures, and in other cultures, it is seen as disrespectful or even dangerous. The lunar change from Taurus to Gemini suggests there are different rules governing early and later parts of the day, both easily navigated as long as you are paying attention.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Consider that the same walls you erect to keep yourself safe will keep you isolated. Don’t let your defenses separate you from those to whom you most need to be close.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The attitude for tearing down is very different from the frame of mind needed to repair and restore. It may be challenging to shift gears, but that’s what needs to happen to handle the challenges of the day.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have wanted certain things from a relationship that didn’t and won’t happen. These expectations or demands were simply ill placed. You can still get what you need elsewhere.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). New faces will breathe excitement into your scene. You’re not worried that a new star will come in and steal the show, though others won’t be as welcoming as you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When warnings are issued, you do not stand back and ponder whether the threat is idle. You go on the alert, acting to secure your position. Your quick response will bring good luck.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Paths converge. From your point of view, it’s your road. From the other person’s point of view, it’s his. Letting each other pass peaceably will be better than putting up a fight.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Reliability isn’t a flashy virtue, and yet there will be an attractive aura of goodness around the reliable person in your life today. (You strive to fill this role, and it’s entirely possible that you are the most reliable person you know.)

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Everyone you deal with is unique, and yet some will stand out as more unique than others. The right combination of words will help you build rapport with this odd character.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Mistakes can build bonds. Consider that a smooth operator may make mistakes on purpose in order to give the other person a more authoritative (and involved) stance in the interaction.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Conflict is necessary. Tension can be the best thing that happens to a relationship, producing a far better result than the lackluster product of constant agreement.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Games can be fun, but there’s a point at which playing roles and executing moves gets exhausting. Anyway, today there’s no time to waste in wondering who a person wants you to be.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). That posturing person will stop bothering you once you appease his or her overblown need for attention. You’d like to withhold your attention, but that’s silly. Giving will take up so little of your time.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You feel free to experiment this year and will have fun trying on different behaviors and styles of communicating. You’ll acquire a cherished possession in May, which will play into a new social direction. June brings family additions. Business dominates in July and August, and you’ll come up with a winning strategy. Libra and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 14, 26 and 15.

JOURNAL PROMPTS FOR VENUS IN PISCES: Connecting with others is easier when we know ourselves and are in touch with our own offerings and needs. You can set yourself up for relationship success in May by taking advantage of the wisdom available on these last days of Venus in Pisces. Here are some prompts that may help as you reflect on your current relationships.

What are the qualities I bring to my relationships?

When it comes to love, what do I expect myself to give?

What is easy for me to give, and what is not so easy?

What do I need from the people in my life?

Do my current exchanges seem healthy? Why or why not?

What am I grateful for?

What is the most beautiful part?

What is missing?

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Immortalized in his child actor form in the holiday classic “Christmas Vacation,” Johnny Galecki has had a long string of career successes before the explosive success of “The Big Bang Theory.” Taurus actors have an advantage in comedy because their down-to-earth sensibility keeps them from falling out of touch with comedy’s essence: truth and pain.
