Free Daily Horoscope - April 21 2017
● General: As you continue a quieter phase on the sidelines, take the opportunity to evaluate some recent conflicts in your life. You can take things in new directions -- all that's missing is a real plan. Today you should have the time and resources you need to figure out the next steps for an old relationship. Be honest with yourself and admit that not every relationship is meant to last forever. All this introspection will fade soon, so delve as deeply as you can now.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: After months of effort, it could be time for an unexpected breakthrough. After all, sometimes success is just a matter of making your pitch to the right audience. So gather the appropriate people and start talking -- they're definitely ready to listen.
● Finances: It's a good day to kick back and think. Review your goals and look at how far you've come. You don't have to be a visionary but do get a sense of what you have to do to get where you want to be.
● Love: You know that friend who's always making negative comments about your choices in men or women? Well they may be on to something. So instead of ignoring what they say, inquire and prod. Amid the dissention, you may find a kernel of truth in there you can use.
● General: It is essential to be clear about what you want today. Speak more loudly and more clearly, and don't beat around the bush! From ordering your lunch to having a heart to heart with your romantic partner, you must say what's on your mind. If anyone tries to cut in line or feed you some nonsense, stand up for yourself -- a healthy dose of your charm with help smooth over the news that no one expected to hear. Saying 'no' to a tempting invitation will be liberating.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Keep your money on the table and your eye on the ball. A project may appear to be operating at a loss, but don't worry -- it's all about the long-term investment. It will eventually pay dividends, you'll just have to take a few hits first.
● Finances: You need a calm day and it's up to you to create an appropriate environment. It goes without saying that money is not a subject for thought. All weirdness is out of place in your Zen temple. Anyone who gets your goat on a regular basis is just not invited to join you today.
● Love: The time for something or someone new is upon you, even if feels like nothing could be further from the truth. That's the funny thing about the universe: you never know what it has in store for you. Do your part by seeking out new experiences and being open to all kinds of possibilities -- the stars will take care of the rest.
● General: Enjoy watching the world go by today, and resist the urge to hop in the rat race. Life from the sidelines can be just as beautiful as life in the heat of the action. In fact, gaining an outsider's perspective will come in handy in future relationships and job opportunities. Understanding why people are doing what they're doing will give you a leg up on the competition. Don't feel guilty -- coasting through life will help you appreciate the rewards of a hard day's work.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: You were once friends and now something's not right -- where did all this tension come from? Figure out what this is really about before you attempt to remedy the situation. After all, the problem may not be as simple as you think.
● Finances: There is no one to bother you today, so take the opportunity to do some deep thinking. The experience might change your mind about a thing or two, or you may realize that your opinions are already spot-on. Either way, the experience is essential to your ability to earn money.
● Love: You have certain ideas about a certain person, but they may be operating under a completely different set of assumptions. In fact, they may not even know you exist. First things first: make your presence known. Then, judging by their reaction, proceed accordingly.
● General: Looks count today -- in terms of work, love and self-esteem. Dress for the job you want to have five years from now, and keep an eye toward appealing to the cutie in your life -- spruce up your plumage and try a new style. Looking good can't make you happy, but it can certainly give you a pleasant surprise when you catch your reflection in a store window. You need to remind yourself how attractive you are -- once you fully realize this fact, everyone else will too.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: It's a day full of emotions, ranging between anger and joy. You'll instinctively want to pull back and hide from it all, but don't. You have work to do and that's more important -- get a thick covering of skin, and fast!
● Finances: You can't understand how others can remain so cool when you are falling apart. Try to respond to your financial problems the way they do -- intellectually. You can think your way out of your situation easier than you can cry your way out of it.
● Love: Your pride and ego get in your way of making progress. For whatever reason, you don't want to ask questions or draw attention to yourself. For now, put aside that limiting attitude and go about being true to your heart, regardless of the consequences.
● General: A little effort goes a long way today. You can spark a major transformation with a minimum amount of effort, so make a quick list of the mountains you want to climb. It's a great time to try a far-fetched idea or even your most hair-brained scheme -- your odds for success are extremely high. Approach someone you've had your eye on and send them a few subtle signals. You'll make your point without having to risk any rejection, and that's always good.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Don't hesitate to tell a supervisor if you see a storm brewing on the horizon, especially if it involves a personnel or financial matter. Your foresight is invaluable now and that's why they depend on you.
● Finances: Relationship issues are caused by the age-old problem -- a clash of egos. Don't let yourself get drawn in. Remind yourself of everything you have of value -- and not all of it has to do with money.
● Love: Finally you've put everything -- all those dark and destructive emotions -- in a safe place. But sooner or later, those feelings will rear their ugly heads. Resistance is futile. So just let the thought pass -- if you fight it, it will fight back and stay longer.
● General: Despite your best efforts, you can't give someone confidence -- they have to earn it by challenging themselves and moving outside their comfort zone. Let go of the efforts you've been making to change other people -- and put the focus back on yourself right now. Too much effort has gone toward pleasing other people -- it's time to make choices based on what you want, not on what you think others want. Trying to read someone else's mind is sure to frustrate you.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: The time to make decisions is now. It's a great day to go ahead and move forward on the plans you've been putting off. After a few days in a mental fog, your thinking is clear as crystal again, so don't let old trepidations hold you back.
● Finances: Being a creature of habit has its benefits -- and also its drawbacks. You're being made aware of its disadvantages today, not the least of which is an income that chugs along rather than races ahead. That alone is enough to shake you out of your regular way of doing things.
● Love: Others are really into looks but that's not always so important to you. In fact, you've been known to date so-so looking people in exchange for great minds and fantastic personalities. This propensity baffles others, but you know what you want and that's all that matters.
● General: Lots of laughter and gossip will beckon you today, but don't get too deeply sucked in -- you have lots of other (more important) things to take care of. A deadline is announced, and you are right on schedule to make it if you can stay on task. People will be distracting you repeatedly, but they're not doing it on purpose, so don't lose your cool. If you focus, you can get the boring stuff out of the way early and be ready to rejoin the fun by tonight.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: It's a weird day for communication. You'll make your point more persuasively if you write it out instead of expressing it verbally. Lay out your pitch on paper or via email, then follow up with phone calls as needed.
● Finances: It doesn't take much to have a good time. In fact, creativity is a better bet than money when it comes to ensuring you have some fun. Doing something new is an old standby worth trying.
● Love: Balancing work, work, work and play, play, play is never an issue for you. If anything, you're all about leisure. But right now, you'd better buckle down and get your work done. The sooner you meet your deadlines, the sooner you can get on to other, lighter subjects.
● General: Organize a group outing or put together a party. All your different people need to meet each other, and you are the only catalyst that can make it happen. An outdoor event would be the perfect setting for a meeting of minds -- physical activity will get everyone laughing and will tear down any inhibitions. While everyone's having fun, stand back and watch. Realize how lucky you are to have these people in your life.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: A supervisor is paying close attention to your progress, and a raise or promotion could be on the line, but all your new responsibilities may threaten to overwhelm you. Don't get bogged down in the details -- just do the next right thing and you'll be fine.
● Finances: Problems at home don't give you the right to explode. You may not have spent a fortune on therapy but you should know enough to stay calm. Money is a particularly dangerous topic of conversation.
● Love: Seek out sparks of the intellectual variety. Sure, it's fun to talk about stupid stuff like celebrity gossip, but you're way beyond that right now. What turns you on is the open and challenging exchange of words and ideas -- you'll have no problem finding someone who feels the same way.
● General: You'll wake up in a semi-foggy state today, and it might take a little while for this fog to clear -- but don't write off this day! There's some interesting news and it will affect your love life -- take advantage of a travel opportunity, even if it seems a bit too exotic for your taste. Also, you'll get a revealing look inside the mind of someone you treasure -- and it will make you love them all the more. Show them your affection in a sappy email.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Great ideas can be fleeting, so don't let them get away. Inspiration may strike at the most unexpected moments -- even in the middle of the night -- so have a pen and paper handy at all times.
● Finances: It's a good day to strike up a conversation with anyone who crosses your path today. Whether you're in a coffee shop, an airport or just walking down the street, the possibilities are endless. One of your new connections will lead you to something lucrative.
● Love: Take risks only if you're not too hung up on the returns. If it's cheap, casual sex you want, well, you know what that entails. But if you're worried about getting your heart stomped on, take it slowly and do your research. Don't get in too deep unless it's a sure thing.
● General: What are you worrying about? Set your concerns aside today, because this cloud you've been floating on isn't about to disappear anytime soon. You can feel free to make plans based on what will surely be success -- speaking of the future, today will give you a clear glimpse of what your path will be. It's not quite time to go down that road, but you will enjoy the sense of confirmation. Today will be worry-free, offering a strong sense of relief.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: A coworker's decision may leave you scratching your head in disbelief (not the good kind of disbelief). This isn't your mess, but you may be charged with cleaning up the aftermath. Stick with it and you'll be rewarded for your (silent) efforts.
● Finances: Conjuring rosy images of the future is a lot of fun. It goes without saying that most people don't conjure up the worst. But visualizing the worst-case scenario is an important part of being prepared. Take off your rose colored glasses.
● Love: Don't hold back when it comes to sharing your latest and greatest ideas. Your distinct outlook on life means you attract people who don't necessarily want to follow the herd. This attribute is definitely a good thing when it comes to dating and romance.
● General: Today you'll enjoy a luxurious aspect of your lifestyle at a whole new level -- but in the midst of all that excess, are you losing sight of the value of money? It's important to enjoy what you've worked for, but it's easy to get too comfortable. Don't fall into any traps -- work to regain a bit of your edge today. It wouldn't hurt to investigate how to start funneling your resources into some smarter investments, either. You could be profiting more.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Keep a positive attitude and a long-term perspective when things go down at the office today. A sudden crackdown by a supervisor could fall disproportionately on your shoulders, but don't despair -- it'll all work out fine in the end.
● Finances: You are an inspirational speaker today, whether you realize it or not. People are listening to everything you say and it's having a profound effect on them. Be sure to speak up about your particular vision of the future.
● Love: All this love and romance stuff can be so baffling sometimes -- the more you try to figure it out, the more perplexing it all seems. Give your heart some downtime and your mind a break. Clarity, along with some answers, will come in time.
● General: Lots of back-and-forth will be going on today -- sharing ideas has taken a front seat in your life, and it's rewarding to find yourself in such accord with so many people you respect. Another rewarding aspect of all these discussions is that they remind you of what you believe and what governs your life. You'll find these convictions to be strengthened over the next few days. Listen to opposing viewpoints with objectivity -- above all else, do not judge others!
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Competition can come from any corner and the unlikeliest places, so don't spill too much about a new project until you know it's a sure thing. Tell only those you can really trust, and even that may be a little vague today.
● Finances: You're not the most realistic person on the planet, but at least you are aware of that flaw. It's a good day to force yourself to be practical. Even your daydreams can be toned down to more believable levels.
● Love: You don't have to sit there waiting on the back porch for love to come along. In fact, it's time you took the lead and got into action. If you can envision your romantic future, share it with someone else. Ask for feedback and find out whether you're on the right track.
