Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, April 22nd

The pressure for change doesn’t let up as the stressful alignments between Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto linger. Additionally, action-packed Mars blasts onto the scene today to form a rare Grand Square, encouraging the energy to get out of hand. Jupiter’s expansive optimism fans the flames of fiery Mars, giving us an inflated sense of confidence. Happily, we’re not interested in looking back once the Moon enters futuristic Aquarius at 12:17 am EDT.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Someone’s big ideas seem totally outrageous today, even if you enjoy living dangerously. You might try to take the easy way out and simply sweep the problem under the rug by moving on to another conversation. However, there’s no way you can sidestep a confrontation now. Demonstrate your courage by facing your denial and pushing the issues out into the open. Things might be bumpy at first, but a straightforward approach assures you of the best chances of success.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You might find yourself going along for the ride at work now, even if you aren’t in full agreement with the direction. You realize that you could argue your case, but your good will is more effective in the long run than fighting against the consensus of the group. Relax; letting someone else take the lead for a while isn’t a permanent change. Show your team spirit by supporting your coworkers the best you can. Your sense of loyalty and willingness to compromise won’t go unrewarded.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Your ideas sound great to everyone at first, but their resistance may increase once someone points out that you’ve overlooked an important detail. You might not be able to get off the hook today as easily as you wish since you will be held accountable for your actions. Thankfully, your mental clarity returns and works in your favor, but concrete results could take a few days to manifest. Keep in mind that there’s no need to be in such a hurry. This detour is a blessing in disguise; seize the opportunity to fine-tune your strategy.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Chaotic circumstances at work now make it harder than ever to focus on your job. Nevertheless, you believe that you know what is valuable and what is a drain on your energy. However, if you must take a stand, at least be sure that you’re not turning an unimportant detail into a big deal. Once you actually decide to go ahead with your plan, don’t allow anything to distract you. Your confidence, commitment and determination make an unbeatable combination.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Overcoming a few small obstacles that stand in the path between you and your happiness now is not going to be as simple as it seems. In fact, your faith in your abilities may be greater than the situation warrants. Carefully consider what you want to say and do prior to taking such bold action. Even if you don’t feel like explaining your motives today, practicing a little humility and diplomacy can go a long way to enlisting others in your cause.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your day starts off innocently enough, but the energy grows more convoluted by the afternoon. You understand that part of your job now is to sort out the meaningful messages from the increasing amount of noise. Unfortunately, you might feel as if there’s no place to hide when the pace quickens. But don’t cut yourself off from the action because there are gems of potential in the mix if you have the courage to search for them. Step outside of your comfort zone to manifest your dreams.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It may be futile to attempt to keep anything secret today because, strangely enough, everyone already seems to know what’s going on in your life. The good news is the magnifying lens will only be focused on you for a couple of days. The intensity will fade but your life might never be quite the same as it was before. In the meantime, live in the present moment and simply deal with each surprise as it arrives. Paradoxically, embracing the unknown is your surest route to success.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Even if you feel like you’re at the end of your rope today, there’s really no cause for immediate alarm. The apparent finality is just an illusion to push you into motion. However, the danger is that you may be so emotionally charged that you overcompensate and do too much. Let your heightened anxiety move you off dead center and stir you to action, but don’t overreact or you might be back to the drawing board all too quickly. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

This can be a grand day for you Archers as action-hero Mars fires up your key planet Jupiter. You may start your day with inflated expectations only to suddenly discover that they are out of place. Don’t give your discouragement a warm enough reception that it wants to stick around all day. Just relegate your visions of the future to your inner world where you are entirely free to wander wherever you want. No matter what, keep your dreams alive.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You have a promising opportunity to make progress today, but you must face an intense issue head on. Others respect your willingness to work hard, but you mustn’t assume a superior attitude now, even if that’s how you feel. You are already running a marathon of sorts, and your responsibilities require you to stay on the straight and narrow path even if there are a few wonderful distractions beckoning along the way. Focusing on the finish line enhances your chances of winning the race.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Although you’re better known for fostering independence in those you love, you may need to practice your nurturing skills to care for someone special today. Your close proximity with emotional interdependence can raise a bit of discomfort now because it puts you directly in touch with your own feelings. Whatever you do, don’t try to rationalize them away. Luckily, tending to your eclectic needs is still possible while you come through with the goodies for others. Take a chance and open the door to your heart.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You can feel the stress in a relationship today and you want to share your solution for putting everything back in harmony. The only safe way out of this unstable situation is to deflate it before it explodes. Remember, you played an active role in creating the present dynamics and now you need to participate in making it right. Think of your current challenge as an adventure. You’re on the metaphysical bomb squad and have been sent in to defuse the scene of the crime. If you remain calm, cool and compassionate, you could emerge as the hero who saves the day.
