Your Horoscopes for Monday, April 14th

We want to build consensus with our allies but hidden emotions could be revealed today if we feel threatened by someone else’s power. The social Libra Moon shines a bright spotlight on relationships. But the Moon’s rough aspects to Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto can lure us down a rather bumpy road. Creating common ground is complicated by chatty Mercury joining erratic Uranus, urging us to share our thoughts without bothering to censor them.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Considering everyone’s feelings prior to initiating action means making decisions is very difficult today because you see everything from multiple perspectives. Even if you are in tune with your desires, you may be unsure of the best time to make your move. However, you might think you don’t have the option of waiting, but that comes from a false sense of urgency. Stop to assess the alternatives and postpone your final choices as long as possible. In this case, doing your research really counts.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Your natural tendency is to tackle your tasks one at a time and just methodically plow through them. However, there’s so much going on now that you might not be able to decide where to begin. Unfortunately, procrastination is not the answer today because the longer you put off the inevitable, the harder it gets. Be courageous and jump in anywhere you can. Things will fall into place once you quit worrying and get to work.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You might think that you can have fun while running errands or doing your chores today, but you may need to work hard to overcome the obstacles you encounter along the way. You could even wonder if someone is blocking your progress, but don’t jump to any hasty conclusions before you have sufficient facts to support your concerns. It’s best to keep moving toward your goals rather than wasting time rationalizing why you should turn around and give up. Taking the high road gives you an opportunity to shine.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It’s a bit simplistic to believe that you can accommodate everyone’s needs just because you see a complex issue from all angles. Although you may not have an easy answer, you could be the right person to mediate a serious domestic conflict today. Nevertheless, the picture might grow more complicated if you feel pressure to take sides. Don’t be afraid to establish strong boundaries by letting others know that you will share your assessment only after you are ready.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You want to take the time to hear everyone’s plans for the future before revealing your own. Unfortunately, you might need to make a critical decision that ends up disappointing someone, even if you do your best to take the concerns of others into consideration. It’s great to be optimistic in your outlook, but you won’t likely agree with every person involved. Explain your choices as kindly and firmly as possible; the best thing you can do next is to lead by example and move on.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your analytical skills are your greatest strength now, especially when you build on your previous work instead of beginning something new. However, you might face your own internal resistance before taking your work to the next level today. Although your fear of failure could make you worry that your efforts will go unnoticed, this isn’t the right time to reassess your direction. Just stick to your present path with as much confidence as you can muster; you may be progressing faster now than you realize.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You don’t have a lot of patience with others who act selfishly, but it’s awkward to tell them what they already should know. You’re on edge with the evocative Moon back in your sign now; however, it’s a mistake to keep your annoyance quiet just to maintain the peace. Unfortunately, there could be an emotional price to pay if you don’t express yourself today. The good news is that with a little social finesse you can remain authentic without placing blame on anyone else.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Every task — no matter how minor — is more complicated when you cannot make up your mind about what to do first. Ironically, the facts seem clear, yet you’re struggling with a dilemma as your imagination pulls you in opposite directions today. Unfortunately, your refusal to give up on either side prevents you from making the best choice. Your best bet is to wait out your uncertainty until the answer becomes more apparent. In the meantime, flexibility is your friend.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Expressing your emotions honestly always sounds like the best policy, but a spontaneous declaration of love may not go over very well today. Unfortunately, writing about the desires of your heart in an email or text won’t necessarily fare any better. Mischievous Mercury’s influence can bend your emotions out of shape, so you might not have a very clear perspective now, even if you believe you do. Only fools rush in; be smart and wait a few days before saying what’s on your mind. Channel your passion into expressing your creativity instead.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may have to play the role of the bad guy in a family conflict today. Or, perhaps someone is in dire need of your parenting skills now. However, you would rather hold a neutral position while you listen to everyone’s concerns. Even if you’ve had more than enough of hearing other people complain, you don’t have the luxury of being able to let your attention wander. Seeking the meaning behind the words instead of being distracted by the emotional intensity can trigger the breakthrough you were hoping for all along.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You have things to do that you’ve never done before, but fortunately, you like the excitement of new experiences. Your knack for balancing what you know with the unknown comes in handy today. However, you still must exercise caution or you could become lackadaisical in your approach. There’s very little margin for error, so don’t get lazy. Lowering your guard now is a likely invitation to trouble. Enjoy the adrenaline rush of embarking on an adventure, but make sure to be back home in time for dinner.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You are strong enough to handle the deep emotions of those around you, but you may be riding a seesaw today as you try to balance someone else’s feelings with your own. You truly want to be present for those you love, but you’re unsure about opening up to outside negativity now. The real lesson comes from being a supportive friend while still maintaining healthy boundaries. Your compassion can have a much more powerful impact if you’re willing to share your heart.
