Horoscopes for April 8, 2014

By
From page B5 | April 07, 2014 |

If Aries energy were a light, it would be a laser beam. If Libran energy were a light, it would be the soft, fuzzy glow of indirect sunlight behind clouds. The opposition of the sun in aggressive Aries and Mars in diplomatic Libra brings a clash of viewpoints. However you see your situation, there’s someone who doesn’t see it that way at all.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll hear words that put you on the defense. Pay attention to what triggers you. This is a valuable clue to help you unlock your psyche and solve a personal problem.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Today feels like a dream within a dream. When you don’t like what’s going on, you will do the equivalent of shaking yourself awake to start over in a new setting.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may feel like wandering a bit, but if you seem purposeless, there are those who will interpret this as weakness. It will behoove you to project a sense of purpose whether or not you think you really have one.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There won’t be a clear opportunity for you to seize. But where there are people in need, there is opportunity. Your job is to ask questions to try to find the need you might be able to fulfill.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’d rather not fake enthusiasm. You prefer to go where the excitement is and be genuinely inspired. Though you won’t have full control over your environment, a cheery attitude will attract more things to be cheerful about.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is so commonplace to wait in a doctor’s or a dentist’s office that patients who are seen on time are absolutely amazed. You’ll get a similarly amazed reaction when your professionalism outshines the norm today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The time you spend with an enjoyable someone is worth planning for. You’ll consciously think about the details that others might leave to chance. Because you think ahead, nothing will spoil your fun.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You know better than to lay on the charm just because you have something to gain from the situation – that’s too transparent. You’ll seek a level social playing field.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It seems everyone is competing for attention, affection and money, and the way some people go about it feels rather uncool. You’d rather sit back and watch than play this game.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Before jumping into the ring, you decide whether the prize is worth fighting for. In today’s case, the prize is just knowing you won. Is it really that important?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Maybe love doesn’t make the world go around, but attraction does. Attraction is the force that keeps this system in orbit. Today you’ll be changed by the thing that pulls you in.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You can’t answer the call of the wild unless there is something wild in you, too – and there is. Respecting this part of yourself will involve facing it. You cannot tame what you ignore.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll make more room for the love coming into your life in the weeks to come. Also, a professional surprise will start a cycle of better compensation. In June, you get your turn in the spotlight and quickly turn it over to someone you believe in. You’ll revamp your domestic life in August so it better supports other goals. Leo and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 22, 34 and 18.

VENUS IN PISCES AND THE HEART’S INTUITION, PART TWO: “Follow your heart” is the cliche that beats at the center of most of the world’s feel-good stories, and though the message is ubiquitous, it’s also impervious to overuse. Why? Because at this logic-driven place in human evolution, we need to constantly be reminded that there is a different wisdom worth heeding from that which is mentally conjured. What seems smart in the short term can prove disastrous in the long run. Action that serves an individual can have terrible consequences for the group. Unlike the brain, the heart isn’t susceptible to the pitfalls of short-term, selfish thinking. While the whirring mind calculates the benefits and detriments as seen in one moment by one person, the heart connects with a larger picture and comes up with answers to serve the collective now and beyond.

As Venus travels the intuitive realm of Pisces, she invites us to rely on our heart’s intuition for decision-making. So how can you turn up the volume on the inner guidance system that is your heart? Tune in tomorrow for tips from the love planet in Pisces.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: From “The Princess Bride” to “Forrest Gump” and beyond, Robin Wright has a knack for choosing projects destined to become time-tested classics. Her work in the political drama “House of Cards” will follow suit. Wright’s high-intensity Aries sun is tempered by the watery maturity and artistic sensibility of Mercury, Venus and Saturn in Pisces.
