Horoscopes for April 4, 2014

By
From page A9 | April 04, 2014 |

You may feel momentarily helpless to change what needs changing, but this, too, will pass as your perspective shifts. Venus in Aquarius helps with a public service announcement: You may be spinning on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam, but everyone you know, love, admire, despise or strive to be like is on the same ride.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re engaged in solving a real problem, and you’re not doing it for your health. There’s something you want, so ask for it. Be forthright. Be the one to set the next appointment or ask for a commitment.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll produce something interesting. While this definitely has merit, you’ll have to take it one step further if you want to get somewhere with this. Answer the hard question: “Why should anyone care?”

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your instincts will give you an edge in all of your dealings, even the extremely logical ones. You see past how much things cost and effectively factor the intangibles into an assessment of true value.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Not everyone is as happy and well adjusted as you. People will adopt a more serious tone than you think they need. Your response is what will escalate or deflate the intensity.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Work that was going fine yesterday suddenly hits a wonky patch. Start with you, not the problem you are having. How are you being affected? Chances are the dynamic is messing with your perceived status or role.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Unless you write down what you do today, you’re likely to lose track of it, and that would be a shame. The long list of (seemingly easy or at least easy for you) tasks you burn through is a testament to a life you can be proud of.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re not out to do anything groundbreaking, but you do feel a strong sense of responsibility and a driving desire to do your very best. By following those two imperatives, you could accidentally break ground despite your intentions.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you get the feeling that someone is running a script on you, you immediately are turned off. You’re an individual who deserves, gives and receives custom-catered treatment.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The middle section of a long-term project is somewhat frustrating. Even though you’ve done quite a bit of work, gained a great deal of skill and shown impressive fortitude, there is still a long road ahead. Take heart!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What is routine for you will be brand-new to the other person. Empathize and go slowly enough through each step that the other person can keep up. Check in often to make sure you’re both on the same page.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you hear the word “no,” be bold enough to ask whether you made a mistake of some kind. If you really want to hear the answer, you’ll learn something that will lead to the “yes” you seek.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Before you discount the complainers in your midst, consider that these types actually may be making a gesture of good faith. Inside that (rather annoying) concern will be some valuable information.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. It doesn’t matter how many times you have conquered your fear before, when you do it this time, it will be a truly special experience that elevates you in every sense. An exciting relationship brings unpredictable fun to the next five weeks. In June, a stellar referral leads to work and money. Invest in July. Pisces and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 23, 21, 48 and 30.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: It’s a mistake to assume you know people before you really do. Stay open-minded. TAURUS: The person who issues endless compliments wants something from you – but what? GEMINI: Only share your feelings from a calm state of mind. CANCER: You deserve a partner who will flirt with you because that’s what comes naturally when the two of you are together. LEO: Writing down what irks you about a partner will be better than arguing or discussing it. VIRGO: Feeling and looking your best will attract new social prospects. LIBRA: You can read the mind of someone who likes you. SCORPIO: Humans go through a process of feeling one another out before deciding what the relationship is going to be. Take your sweet time with this, as it’s important to get those first moments and impressions right. SAGITTARIUS: You’re attracted to playful people, but not irresponsible ones. CAPRICORN: Playing it cool is a matter of executing predictable, smooth movements with confidence. AQUARIUS: You despise laziness. You want a productive and mutually beneficial relationship or none at all. PISCES: Knowing what you don’t want in a partner is only the start. Make a list of what you do want.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The Cancer moon is very much at home – and so are those born under that sign. The way Cancer can slow down and create beauty out of daily happenings is quite appealing to on-the-go Aries, and these two signs have much to offer each other this weekend. Cancer wants to care for Aries, but should by no means reach for or try to influence the ram. What will work is an attraction-based seduction.
