Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, April 2nd

Sleeping tensions awake as impulsive actions reveal the truth. Confidence abounds, encouraging us to take risks by reacting to the changing circumstances before we think about the consequences. Today’s shocking Sun-Uranus alignment is only one part of the cosmic forces that can unleash a bit of chaos. Although the steady Taurus Moon can’t assure total certainty about the future, we gain some clarity from a stabilizing Mercury-Saturn trine.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You could make the people in your life somewhat crazy because you’re not interested in fulfilling their expectations. But today’s Sun-Uranus conjunction in your sign demands that you act from your own heart. Don’t suppress your feelings; if you do, you might regret it sooner than you think. Your job now is to lead by example instead of doing what anyone else thinks you should. Start your own personal revolution by showing the world who you really are.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

A situation that seems to be beyond your control could push you into a corner today. If you feel emotionally threatened you might strike out at someone only to later wish you kept your extreme reactions to yourself. Your deepest secrets become fair game for discussion now, so you may as well disclose the truth before you have to do it under duress. Instead of attempting to maintain any semblance of control, use this as an opportunity to clear the air. Taking preemptive action is smarter than waiting and responding after the fact.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

An apparently mellow meeting or social event can quickly grow out of hand as too many conflicting emotions agitate the group. Everyone seems to have a different set of needs and tries to steer the situation accordingly. If no one is able to rise above the noise and restore calm, it may be wise to leave the fray for a while. A temporary break might be enough to allow the chaotic energy to settle back down to a manageable level. Put this time to better use by writing down your unconventional ideas to share with everyone later on.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

An unstable situation at work might actually be just what you need to come out on top. Someone who was supposed to be running the show may fall short of living up to his or her responsibilities, leaving you with an unexpected opportunity to fill the slot. You probably have more to offer than you realize; don’t wait any longer to step up to the plate and show what you can do. Act now and deal with the fallout later.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might be reconsidering your travel plans today — not because something is wrong with your itinerary, but because you simply don’t want to be too tied down to a set schedule. Attending a lecture, seminar or any kind of event that allows you to expand your mind into new areas of study might be your answer. Grab any chance to widen your horizons now, even if it’s outside your normal areas of interest. Be fearless and explore new worlds.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

A spiritual awakening can come in a variety of guises. You may be touched in ways that you cannot possibly anticipate today as buried feelings or new realizations explode into awareness. There’s no specific practice to make this kind of breakthrough happen on schedule. It’s like trying to predict exactly when and where lightning will strike. Nevertheless, don’t try to run away from it when it does, for it’s only dangerous if you close your mind and heart. There’s nothing to fear if you have faith in the inherent wisdom of the universe.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your world may seem more chaotic than you wish, but the instability also brings great potential for making necessary changes. Unfortunately, your insecurities might be stirred if people act erratically, but their radical behavior could be just what you need to shock you out of your complacency. If someone comes to you today with a totally outrageous idea, don’t dismiss it until you truly consider its merits. Recognize genius before it’s too late.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Skipping some of your regular routine is wise today because shaking things up might be the best thing you can do. Paradoxically, the more rigid you remain, the more difficult it is to stay on track. Even if you try to maintain consistency, one interruption after another may finally force you to set your schedule aside. However, there’s no need to work yourself into a state of frustration. Accepting the instability of the day and responding with flexibility frees you to reinvent yourself without the restraint of old habits.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Even if you’re a natural-born adventurer, pushing into new territory now encourages you to take creative risks you might not have previously considered. Your enthusiasm is high and you are suddenly inspired to try doing things differently than ever before. Others are watching you to see what you are going to do next. Surprise them with your unorthodox behavior today as you reach for the stars. If you act like the innovator you imagine yourself to be, you can be an inspiration to everyone else, too.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your spirits may be lifted by good news today, or perhaps you are just ready to fly no matter what is happening in your life. Normally, you would advance your next project methodically one step at a time. Although you typically like to keep your feet on solid ground, your foundation might feel a bit unstable these days. Open your mind and widen your horizons. Instead of looking back for security, let go of the past and take a leap of faith into the future.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Even if time already seems to be moving fast, the pace of your life is accelerating again as the Sun catches up with your key planet Uranus. You may be thinking about a quick escape, but it’s not about running away from the hard work. To the contrary, you’re probably eager to jump into a project now, but it’s challenging because you’re distracted by so much noise in your immediate environment. Embrace the unknown instead of avoiding it. This quantum leap could bring the positive changes you seek.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your finances may be impacted today in one of two ways. You could face an unexpected expenditure that puts you into a precarious position. Or, you might actually receive a windfall as money comes to you from out of the blue. Either way, react with caution; don’t assume that this sudden change of fortune — for better or for worse — will last. It’s not helpful to panic or to spend impulsively. Conserve your money and your energy for a rainy day.
