Horoscopes for April 9, 2014

From page B6 | April 09, 2014 |

The lethargic areas of life will now get a jolt of electric motivation as the recent addition of the Leo moon raises the sum to four fire-sign luminaries ruling the skies. The appetite for excitement is stronger, and even the mild-mannered will be drawn to the heat. Those in the business of making life work faster will find success today.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Make sure to give everyone a chance to voice their concerns, ask questions and contribute what they consider to be useful information. By hearing everyone out, you’ll avoid problems.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you’re asked to explain yourself, the first thing to consider is whether you should. There are but a select few people who have earned the right to ask for an explanation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As much as your chemistry is “off” with a certain someone, it will be “on” with someone else. So don’t settle for unsatisfying interactions. Mingle with more people.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you have a way of quickly figuring out who is a prospect and who isn’t, you’ll make many sales. Today’s trials and errors will help you create a systematic approach to success.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Don’t fear the wrong choice. You’ll be prevented from making it as long as you resolve not to push in any direction. If ever there was a time to “go with the flow,” this is it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may not believe you have mystical powers, but that won’t stop something unexplained from happening in your life today. Your secret wish will be answered.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be looking for things. It’s fun if you’re searching for treasure, but it’s frustrating if you’re searching for the phone or keys that should always be in a designated and easy-to-remember place.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your purely emotional responses are hard to put into words, but it will benefit you to work out exactly what triggered you to take a certain course of action, if only in your private journal.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your careful use of this 24 hours will contribute to a project’s success. Screen your calls, limit your Internet use, and check email only at a predetermined time of day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There have been some relationships that worked only because you were willing give 90 percent to match the other person’s 10. You’ll realize that you’re no longer willing to do this.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You know that infatuation isn’t love, but that doesn’t make it any less appealing. Infatuation can be fun! A bit of immature attraction will be the spark in your day.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Telling yourself that you should be farther along than you are will only keep you from realizing the unique resources and advantages that are available to you because of your exact timing and position.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your winning attitude prevails this year. Even though you will have to cope with opposition, part of you never loses sight of the truth: Having to fight and defend yourself is what will make you powerful. You’ll overturn an injustice this month and lead a group in May. June finally brings the circumstances you’ve longed for. Taurus and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 4, 44, 28 and 36.

VENUS IN PISCES AND THE HEART’S INTUITION, PART THREE: 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?

Tip No. 1: Detach from every outcome.

Being dead-set on a particular outcome is the primary reason why people ignore the heart’s messages. A narrow view of what constitutes a favorable result closes people off from universal wisdom. Their investment in one outcome prevents them from being open to other options, even ones that are much more beneficial. The primary reason why people become so committed to one outcome that they cannot entertain the thought of any other result is the power of the ego.

Tip No. 2: Comfort the ego.

You can ask your ego to kindly step aside to allow for seeing the whole picture, but a tenacious ego will likely balk at the request, convinced that concession will lead to a loss of the ego’s control. You can lessen your threat to the ego by enticing the ego to play games of make believe. Come back tomorrow for an example of this.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Aries Leighton Meester recently wed Adam Brody, her co-star in the comedy “Life Partners,” in a super-secret wedding. Aries people have a reputation for impulsivity, but this sign also feels like the decisions made on impulse are sound, as they have not had time to be corrupted by exposure to the opinions and bias of the outside world.
