Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, April 17th
The planets issue conflicting orders and we are caught in the middle. On one hand, stabilizing Saturn absorbs the warm radiance of the Sun’s trine, enabling us to face our worldly responsibilities with a positive attitude. On the other hand, an irritating Mars-Saturn misalignment leaves us with a taste of dissatisfaction when obstacles slow our progress. Meanwhile, the industrious Capricorn Moon reminds us that hard work is good for the soul.
Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19
You’re more than willing to go the extra mile at work today because you know that your positive attitude will be rewarded. Thankfully, you’ll probably accomplish more than you expect while the enthusiastic Aries Sun harmonizes with karmic Saturn. Nevertheless, your dissatisfaction grows throughout the day after cranky Mars enters the picture. Harboring negative thoughts does nothing except move you further from success. What you think, you become.
Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20
Your goal is to establish clear priorities and then stick to your plan, regardless of the expectations of others. The Sun and Mars activate sobering Saturn in your 8th House of Deep Sharing, reminding you that you don’t need external success. Instead of trying to please everyone else, the only lasting source of satisfaction is found in making your heart happy. Bob Marley sang, “Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you’re living?”
Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20
Your professional and personal relationships seem stable enough to support you through a work crunch of hectic deadlines. Luckily, you can put a plan into place quickly enough to create an immediate positive effect. However, you still may need to face the fact that you are behind schedule. Don’t waste any time or energy on worrying about what happens next. Just put your shoulder to the wheel and keep on pushing today. Will Smith said, “Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings and emotions.”
Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22
Your skin starts to crawl when people criticize your work in public. The truth is you’re open to receiving useful feedback, but you prefer it to be given in a more private setting. However, you may believe that it’s important to keep up appearances today, so no one will realize that you’re upset. Unfortunately, stifling your humiliation or frustration impacts the current interpersonal dynamics. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.”
Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22
Your unrestrained confidence works in your favor only for so long today. Believing in your ability to put on a good show is not a substitute for actually turning in a world class performance. Instant karma will stop you in your tracks if you’re not fully capable of meeting your obligations. Thankfully, with proper preparation, Saturn’s progress-stopping roadblock will morph into a minor speed bump before you even reach it. Stephen Hawking wrote, “However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.”
Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22
You are a shining example of Virgo’s efficiency in action today. You want to work smarter, not harder. But previously hidden factors turn a simple contract into a complicated mess of half-finished projects. Instead of just assuming that everything will magically unfold in the best interests of everyone, revise your plan and jump in wherever progress is blocked. But remember, success alone will not bring happiness; love is the key to your heart.
Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22
You don’t need to make a big deal out of your current position; you’re just anxious to lend a helping hand wherever you’re needed. Unfortunately, people might not seek your assistance today, even if they could draw on your unused talents. Although their lack of interest may be annoying, it’s not polite to overstep into anyone else’s private affairs. Think of this as a gift from the universe and do something nice for yourself instead.
Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21
You’re not one to be seduced by the calm; you want to find the problem that hasn’t yet made it out into the open. But rather than looking for trouble, you’re actually trying to avoid it. Nevertheless, don’t take the easy way out because there’s no satisfaction in maintaining the illusion of perfection. Sometimes the tiniest adjustment is all it takes to get the engine of progress purring again. Mark Twain said, “Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.”
Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21
You’re often the one who is pouring over maps, cooking up the next great escape plan. However, you have no intention of going anywhere today. In fact, you’re not interested in doing anything that distracts you from your predetermined agenda. Happily, showing up is most of the challenge now. But unfortunately, sticking to the script of your regular routine creates a new set of dilemmas when you realize there are better things you could be doing with your time. Gandhi taught, “Action expresses priorities.”
Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19
You are extremely serious today because you intuitively know how much you can do if you remain singularly focused. Thankfully, the hardworking Capricorn Moon gets you off to a good start, while the Sun’s trine to your key planet Saturn is like a planetary insurance policy on your success. Everything you do falls into place without too much effort. But as the day wears on, the tension becomes palpable. Don’t squander precious resources trying to fix something that’s not broken. The awkward energy will come and go on its own, leaving your trail of accomplishments in its wake.
Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18
No one knows how to read your energy today as you remain a bit of a mystery. Nevertheless, people begin to see how driven you are to make a social impact through your personal interactions. Authoritative Saturn harmonizes with the willful Sun in your 3rd House of Communication, giving you an extra set of tools as you step into a leadership role. But your followers will abandon you as quickly as they sign up if they think you are assuming too much power too fast. Abraham Lincoln said, “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20
Working extra hours now directly impacts your pocketbook. Whether you’re punching the clock for wages or working on an idea that could lead to a new source of income, take advantage of your enterprising spirit while it’s buzzing. Don’t complain if you’re missing out on more pleasurable pursuits; there’s no room for distractions today. There will be plenty of time later on for stirring up mischief, but the current opportunities will knock on someone else’s door if you miss your chance to make magic happen.
