Free Daily Horoscope - April 20 2017
● General: Taking action is to be taken seriously. Do not move forward just because you're afraid to stand still right now -- especially in romantic situations. Everything must happen in its own time, and you should definitely not rush things. Take advantage of opportunities, but don't push your agenda too strongly today. Waiting for the right moment to act will teach you patience and help you appreciate forward momentum (when it returns) all the more.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: The stakes are most definitely real, and you'll need to give it all your effort if you're going to come out ahead. A competition with a coworker is about to reach a head -- expect the best outcome possible but be prepared for the worst.
● Finances: Slow down and take a breath. You may think you're in a game of Pac Man but you're not. You're gobbling up more than your share and people are starting to notice. Make sure you protect your reputation as fiercely as you protect the rest of your assets.
● Love: Someone else's point of view on your particular romantic conundrum can help you out of this latest pickle. Don't be stubborn; ask for their take on it -- and be sure you listen to and consider the advice.
● General: When you're driving in your car, you realize that you are not the only driver on the road -- after all, you must be aware of what other people are doing to be as safe as you can be. This awareness should apply to all areas of your life right now. Take note of who is around you and how they are behaving. Be careful of how others may affect day's scheduled route. Plan a detour, just in case.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You're the right person for this assignment, no question about that. But your boss may not be quite as aware as you are of your obvious qualifications. When in doubt, self-promote: No one ever got the job by selling themselves short.
● Finances: You may not be the crunchy-granola type but you have a deep appreciation for all things natural. You're willing to spend a pretty penny on things that help the earth today. Charities had better hit you up while the hitting up is good.
● Love: When it comes to situations involving others -- friends, hotties, whomever -- things could get a little dicey. You're really better off flying solo now, so spend time alone. If that's not possible, be ready to deal with an issue or two.
● General: If you feel as though the circumstances of your life are not under your control right now, you're right -- but only to a point. Granted, there are certain things you can't change -- and it would be very helpful to resign yourself to the facts. But there are also quite a few malleable points you aren't seeing right now. To open your eyes a little wider, expose yourself to new ways of doing things. Experiment with unusual activities and different types of entertainment.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: It's time to request a formal evaluation. After all, everyone's been raving about your performance these days, so why not make it official? Turn those compliments into the raise or promotion you've been waiting for.
● Finances: It's hard to deal with someone else holding you back, especially when you don't recognize them as someone in a position to do that. They're doing just that, though, so figure out how you're going to deal with them. Ignoring the issue could cost you money.
● Love: You have a fantastic sense of humor, so use it -- especially in your romantic endeavors. Updating your social-networking and dating profiles may be cumbersome, but so what? You'll get more action if the information truly reflects what you're all about.
● General: One of the best acts of self-nurturing is to be honest with yourself. This includes being honest about what you really need right now. If your energy level has been waning, then you need time to recharge your batteries -- give it to yourself. Or if you've had more energy than you know what to do with, then you need to get organized -- prioritize your workload today, and use that energy in a focused, efficient manner.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You don't want to take a fall if things go wrong, especially after all the work you've invested. So before you jump in on a new project, make sure things are humming along smoothly on an existing assignment.
● Finances: Your communication skills may usually be excellent, but today you're being misunderstood no matter how hard you try to be clear. Don't talk about anything that could make or break you today.
● Love: Catching that certain someone's attention is one thing. But at this point, you're on to bigger and better things. Think promotions, raises and a corner office. You're after the big fish now, and if you keep shining, you'll hook 'em with ease.
● General: You are in desperate need of some stimulating input today, and you should look to one of your especially fiery friends for a great big dose of it! Get out there with him or her and explore as much of the world as possible. Indulge your growing passion for travel with a road trip way beyond your normal boundaries. The two of you are a star team, capable of charming the grumpiest of strangers and having tons of fun in just about any situation -- even a traffic jam.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Fighting and bickering are simply counterproductive, so if you're struggling with a rival, find some common ground and learn how to work together. Everyone will appreciate it. Competition is fair game, but outright hostility is unprofessional.
● Finances: A healthy ego is a good thing, but when it starts to present itself as old-fashioned arrogance, you're going too far. You need a humbling experience today. It doesn't have to be horrible, either. Helping someone who has considerably less than you do can do the trick.
● Love: Love is full of exhausting extremes. That's why it's a great time to take stock and just tune out. It's really for the best. After you get a chance to breathe, you'll have a new perspective on an old problem.
● General: People you want to impress are amazed at your ability to commit, so don't take it for granted. You know what you want right now, so stick with it -- despite the hecklers in the audience. Everyone has doubts once in a while, but you won't let these little worries make you dodge responsibility -- too much is at stake. The long-term success of your plans requires you to prove yourself right now. Keep your eye on the prize and just keep on keeping on.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Little requests for assistance will add up to a huge time drain if you let it. After all, 'therapist' isn't in your job description. No, you probably can't bar the door, but you can suggest they take it somewhere else.
● Finances: Doing well at work is a healthy ambition, but don't forget to throw in a bit of fun to keep you well-rounded. A party in the lunchroom won't cut it. Be open to meeting someone who knows how to liven the place up, and they just may arrive.
● Love: Your love life? Forget about it. You can't even think straight today. In fact, getting out of the house in one piece will be a challenge, let alone finding the love of your life. Focus on the essentials for now -- when everything calms down, you can fire up that search for Mr. or Mrs. Right.
● General: The time for exploring new ideas has passed. It will come around again soon enough, but today you have to curb your wanderlust and stick close to home. Instead of seeking out new faces and new places, you have to learn to appreciate the known and familiar. Today offers you a wonderful opportunity to communicate your ideas to the people who really understand you. They can give you beneficial constructive criticism and help you build something that will last.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You have a great thing going at your current job, so don't let a vague feeling of dissatisfaction force you to tender your resignation. Figure out what's really bothering you, then come up with a plan to change it. Management will be receptive to your ideas.
● Finances: When you think about the past, you imagine the good old days. Remember how happy you were then? And how little you made? Put two and two together and stop stressing over the amount of money you have. It won't make you happy.
● Love: Find a way to start up a project with someone interesting -- maybe that new guy or gal in the office. You're working well with others now, so whether it's business or romance or both, you probably won't be alone tonight.
● General: Getting caught up in the moment and acting impulsively is not only okay today -- it is highly recommended! Throw all your caution to the wind, and watch it fly away -- you won't be needing it for a while. You are in a very safe place and have surrounded yourself with trustworthy people. Your spontaneous energy will encourage new ideas and keep everything going in the right direction -- and it will help you stay positive when you encounter a couple of little bumps along the way.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Remember, email is not a toy. Some things are best said in person, not sent over the company network. Think twice before hitting send -- you never know when a missive might end up in front of the wrong eyes.
● Finances: It finally makes sense to sign on the bottom line. You've been patient, you've been shrewd, you've been hesitant -- and the right moment is finally here. Enjoy making that big commitment.
● Love: You definitely have a way about you. It's sexy, it's smart -- it can even be a little mysterious and intimidating. Such is the way of your world. You can't expect everyone to get you, so don't pout if that hottie doesn't return your call. There are a million others where that one came from.
● General: There can be no such thing as too much happiness in your life, although today the amount of jovial and happy energy coming your way could overwhelm you. You're lucky you have problems like this, so be grateful for the embarrassment of riches you're currently enjoying. Reaching out to other people is important today, especially since you have so much positive energy to share. If you've been working at turning someone's head, it may happen today.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Choose your battles and only fight the ones that are really important, and everyone will come out ahead. You may not always agree with where the group is going, but teamwork requires a little compromise.
● Finances: The art of cuisine holds appeal for you today. The ooh's and ah's you get in response to a homemade lunch are like music to your ears. Go ahead, go all out. Even if you break the budget, it's worth it.
● Love: You have a big ego -- no doubt about that. And though some people find your bravado absolutely charming, it can get you in lots of trouble in the business world. If you don't understand or don't know, just ask. Going on assumption or false information is a bad idea.
● General: There's a threatening gray cloud of pessimism just over the horizon. Its power over your life will increase exponentially with each negative person you encounter today, so try to stick with people who always see the bright side of life and who are good at cheering you up. Stay away from naysayers who tell you the things you want to do can't be done. Because the truth is, anything that you can think of can happen -- if you persevere.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Cover the details before you make your pitch. Research is key in this situation. If you don't know your audience, your demographic or the needs of your target group, you have a problem. Sounding convincing is only half of the equation.
● Finances: You can sense good results coming through the pipeline even if no one else can see any progress. Remember, you don't have to impress anyone. It will all be obvious soon enough. For now, trust how you feel.
● Love: Nope -- your romantic possibilities aren't shrinking. It's really more of a transition phase. Just hang in there while the next wave of eligible bachelors and bachelorettes builds momentum. You'll be inundated with dates in no time flat.
● General: You will have a day full of possibilities, because your mind is open and you have a strong desire for new experiences. You are highly susceptible to some of the wacky ideas your friends are always tossing out. So if you're ready for a new adventure, step forward and rally the troops around you. It's been too long since you led the way down a mysterious path, and you are ready to inspire confidence in the people who care about you.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Good ideas will always find their way to the surface, and you're a force to be reckoned with today. So don't let loudmouth colleagues drown out what you have to say. Instead, speak up and let your ideas fly -- if they filibuster, elbow right back in the discussion.
● Finances: You're dog tired today. Don't try to fight the feeling. You deserve a rest, no matter what others think of the matter. If you can't take a personal day then take a power nap. Making money can wait.
● Love: Maintaining solid romantic relationships is really all about monkey see, monkey do. If you grew up with good role models, chances are you'll know what to do innately. But if you didn't, find a mentor and start asking questions. You'd do it in business, why not do it when it in love?
● General: Your love-hate balancing act with an authority figure is most definitely tipping in the love direction right about now. Even with the current hectic pace of your life, you two can find the time you need to clearly communicate what you expect from each other. Rely on your solid communication skills to ease any potentially rough spots that may appear in the near future. You two are developing an excellent relationship.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Be sure you don't talk faster than you think, or you could end up promising things you can't deliver. Your improvisational skills will serve you well when dealing with a sticky office situation today.
● Finances: Coworkers prove to be a big help for you today. Whether they're covering for you, complimenting you in front of the boss or making sure a good project comes your way, don't forget to say thanks.
● Love: Don't be surprised if you're suddenly struck by a desire to change everything. That's just your internal dialogue telling you you're not satisfied with your life. Instead of self-destructing, take this cosmic energy and channel it into refreshing and refining what you already have.
