Free Daily Horoscope - April 18 2017
● General: It might do you some good today to step back from your crowd of friends and look at things from an outsider's perspective. You'll finally see things as they truly are, which will either reinforce what you were hoping for -- or make you feel like big changes are in order. If it's the latter, don't be alarmed. Do what feels right, and don't shy away from explaining yourself. People respect the truth, and they'll respect you for speaking it.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: A lot is going on in your career right now, and you're not sure if that's a good thing. Do your best to dig up the underlying the weirdness. By late afternoon, you will be ready to move on and tackle some fresh business.
● Finances: You are placing your desire to get ahead above all else, even your relationships with family and friends. Is that really the way you want to live? Remember, money can only give you so much; for all else, you need to look to your fellow humans.
● Love: Manners count. Nonverbal nuances may be more telling than what comes out of their mouth. Sit back and observe -- you'll learn a lot about this person and how they feel about you.
● General: As the leader in a group today, you need to take into account what it is the rest of the group members want. Being the boss doesn't mean you get to do whatever you want! It means you have to what is best for the group. Try to be extra sensitive to the people who don't really know what's going on -- it's up to you to bring them up to speed. By the end of the day, everyone will be working well together. You'll get a rush from the people around you.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: What's going on with everyone? What's with the odd energy? Clients are sending weird, subliminal messages or wielding random details only you notice. Guess what? You can see what everyone else is missing too.
● Finances: No matter what angle you try to tackle a problem from, it looks exactly the same. There is just no getting around the solution: Money. Instead of wasting precious time and energy trying to come up with a different answer, spend your time finding more income.
● Love: Never fear. If one romantic bus leaves the station, you know another one is on its way shortly. Good times, bad times -- you've had your share. Right about now you can expect to experience plenty of both.
● General: No matter how tempting it might be to make one last, strong push toward the finish line, try not to force things any further today. You're right where you need to be right now, no matter how impatient you may be to get to the next level. Not everyone is on the same timetable as you, and you need to be mindful of that fact. Wait for your partners to catch up to where you are. Once everyone is ready to take the next step together, the path will be clear and easy.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: It's up to you to mend things, and you can do it on your own. That's what happens when you're the only person willing and able to overcome denial and see what's really going on. Even if you can't convince others, you can still take the right action.
● Finances: You have the sneaking suspicion that once you try something, others will see what a great idea it actually is. Putting things in motion does more than any sales pitch ever could, so save your breath. Start putting your money where your mouth is.
● Love: Romantic matters may be on hold currently, but that doesn't mean you don't deserve something special. Why wait around for Prince Charming or Mrs. Right to get on the ball? If you want flowers or diamonds, buy it yourself.
● General: Focus on completing a project. You've been able to enjoy freedom of thought lately, and good for you for letting your mind wander into new and inspiring territory. Today, you need to build on the experiences you've had and pinpoint the one thing that deserves your energy right now. Your mind is as sharp as a razor, and whether the task you choose is as simple as shopping for a birthday present or as complex as revising your household budget, you'll complete it quickly.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: There's plenty of time before the deadline, so take every precaution in your power. Review documents twice -- grab a coworker or two to help you parse out language that seems ambiguous to you. 'Better safe than sorry' should be your motto.
● Finances: Not being understood can lead to serious financial problems. Having communication problems at work seriously affects your bank account balance. Think about each thing you have to say and be as precise as possible in saying it.
● Love: You're outspoken, everyone knows that. But someone in your midst is absolutely enchanted with your take on things. Don't hold back -- if you freak them out at some point, keep going. If they're going to hang with you, they need to know what they're getting into.
● General: If one of your friends or family members has been holding out on you, today they'll come clean and let you in on what's been going on. You'll find that your suspicions were right on, but you might want to play the surprised card -- it'll be much more fun! A celebration may be in order, so have some suggestions in your back pocket just in case no one has planned anything yet. Play cruise director for a day, and you'll be more popular than ever.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Everyone's busy with their own thing, so it's up to you to take responsibility today. This morning look at the issues in greater depth and consider what needs to happen. By mid-afternoon you will be ready to implement sweeping changes.
● Finances: You know what you want and you'll risk almost anything to get it. Draw the line when it comes to your self-respect, if not sooner. It doesn't look good when you show your more ruthless side, no matter how much money is involved.
● Love: Don't forget to nurture existing relationships. Now's a great time to check in with your family and friends. Romance is important, but the other ties that bind also need your careful attention and undying love.
● General: Get as active as possible today -- your mood will be greatly improved by accelerating your heartbeat. So walk instead of ride ... get on your bike instead of into your car ... and take the stairs instead of the elevator. If you continue with these small changes past today, you'll start to notice real changes -- mental and physical ones -- sooner than you think. Every day, there are opportunities to improve your health -- you just need to see them and take them.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Take some time to check in with your people today. The morning is a great time for an informational meeting and quick updates with off-site colleagues. Later in the day, put your schedule on autopilot and relax a little.
● Finances: You may think you're offering constructive criticism but find out if you're tapping into your more negative feelings. Jealousy can make you say things that are less than helpful. Make sure your motives are pure.
● Love: You're charming the heck out of everyone right now with your eloquence and class. The classiest move of all, however, is to give credit where it's due. Don't hog the spotlight -- share some of that attention with others.
● General: Isn't it amazing that when you finally get around to cleaning out your closet you end up throwing out so much more than you ever knew you had? Make a pledge to yourself that you'll never let your unused possessions (emotional or physical) pile up like that again! Today, clean out your emotional closet. Many feelings, grudges or regrets are in there and they're doing you no good... let these outmoded things pass away. You'll be amazed at how much lighter you feel.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Your instinct tells you to make a big change that addresses your perception of your career, so pursue your deepest ideals. And make sure you are true to yourself, no matter what is going on at work.
● Finances: Don't let yourself get depressed thinking about past failures. Successful people use those kinds of experiences as learning moments. You have the future ahead of you to make something of yourself; start today.
● Love: You'd do a little research before you bought a high-ticket item, so why not do the same with a date? Before you hit the town together, ask around -- you'll be surprised with the results of your inquiry.
● General: Where do you fit into your community? And do you want your role to grow, or shrink? Today these types of questions will be on your mind. As you get older, your sense of connection with the people around you (strangers and friends) is becoming more important. Find out how you can get involved in a neighborhood group, political group or even just a social club of people who share your common interests.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Play it safe for the time being, especially if you're still feeling tender from a recent flop. Remember, you're still recovering from it, and though you're doing quite well, exercise caution with risky business and take care of yourself.
● Finances: You have a solo assignment just when you're enjoying the company of others the most. Make the most of small forms of communication when you can. The lack of distractions will actually help your moneymaking abilities.
● Love: Now's a great time to seek out unusual entertainment -- and the folks that go along with it. So whether it's a theme party or a night out at a dance club, you're making memories and friendships that'll last a lifetime.
● General: Envision what you can accomplish... create a crystal-clear picture in your mind of what you want. Focus on that image and try to emulate it with your actions. In a sense, you'll be giving yourself a road map to follow for the future. From working up the nerve to talk to that amazing person who makes your heart go aflutter to marching into your boss's office and asking for that overdue raise, you'll find the courage you need by picturing the scenario.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Use any means necessary to get the job done adequately and they'll be lining up outside your door. Remember, a satisfied client is the best advertisement. Who knew the formula for success could be so simple?
● Finances: If you really want something, you go in a straight line to get it. If you're lukewarm about a thing, you're more likely to zig-zag and meander your way there. Once you reach it, you may just find it to be a pot of gold.
● Love: Don't be surprised if things don't work out exactly as planned, especially in the romantic realm. If you can wrap your mind around this and keep your cool, you'll be in an excellent position to make the most of it.
● General: Get a load of you! Today you're at level 10 of everything: brains, wit, energy and organization! This would be a great day to work on a major cleaning or restructuring... it's high time you got rid of that dead weight or those unused resources weighing you down. Your clarity on what's valuable and what isn't can't be beat, so trust yourself. Get a fresh start in an old routine, and you'll be primed for success.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: It's a day of isolation preceding brilliant metamorphosis. Spend the morning cloistered away. You have plenty to chew on now, and distractions won't help. By mid-afternoon, your momentum is at maximum capacity, surprising everyone around you.
● Finances: If you have bursts of high energy, you're less likely to have the kind of stamina you need to tackle your long list of things to do. Try to keep things on a moderate level. Determination is more valuable than enthusiasm today.
● Love: You're masterful at making introductions right now, so if no one's stepping up to the plate, anoint yourself as official host or hostess. This is more like it -- party time and you're at the center of the action! Perfect!
● General: Your intelligence -- both emotional and the intellectual -- is cranked up today. It's so high, in fact, that you're able to evaluate any situation in an instant. So trust your first impressions, no matter how much other people try to convince you to change your mind. If a charmer has everyone else fooled, that's their problem. You're not about to join the club of blind followers. Use your brain -- it will save you time and a lot of wasted energy.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: If you've thought about going green or pursuing eco-friendly alternatives, today's the day to move forward. New customers or coworkers will be right on your wavelength when it comes to socially responsible business dealings.
● Finances: You feel more like a puppet on a string than an adult with control over your destiny. Those are your subliminal issues coming to the surface. You can conquer them with old-fashioned discipline.
● Love: Pay attention to what's going on around you, and you'll notice some rather surprising and possibly hot undercurrents. It's a great time to increase your awareness of everything and everyone in your proximity.
● General: This is a day for selfless action... you need to turn away from your personal worries and put yourself at someone else's disposal. Contact a friend who's been going through a tough time and ask them if you can do anything to lighten their load. Your gestures of compassion are powerful tools you can use to grow your relationship. Now is not the time to keep track of the favors you grant. It will all come back to you -- you need to trust that what you give will return to you tenfold.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Revenge is a bad idea, especially when it's directed at management. Your boss will be pretty tough to deal with for most of the day, and early on you might feel like a doormat. Fight back the instinct to retaliate -- it's a no-win situation for you.
● Finances: For once you're happy you have a leader to guide you instead of wishing you had more independence than you do. They have a lot of insight and valuable advice for you today, so listen up.
● Love: Love is always on its own schedule and for someone like you, that's totally frustrating. If you set your agenda aside and go with the flow -- or better yet, take a risk -- you may nab a fantastic surprise in the process.
