Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, April 26th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope

If you’ve been holding onto anger and letting frustration build, dear Aries, a Mars-Pluto angle today can bring this to just under the surface. The trick will be to identify it and avoid letting this tense, edgy energy rule your behavior. Tensions related to career, long-term goals, and reputation may be at the root of things, but you can express these tensions through mechanical frustration, driving, and communicating. Aggressive Mars is in your communications sector in harsh aspect, and with Mercury retrograde in your sign and resultant misunderstandings, you should be particularly careful about what you say now. Watch for manipulative or compulsive behaviors and be careful about reacting too quickly to things that make you mad.

Taurus

Taurus HoroscopeYou have more drive these days to pursue your material needs and wants, dear Taurus, but today, there can be a tendency to want more than the world can offer you in the present. Control or power games are tempting now, particularly if you feel frustrated about a matter of ownership or jealousy, but it’s not the solution to problems. You might also be a little too quick to jump to your defense – or to someone else’s – before you know the whole story. There is a bit of paranoid energy with us all today! Think up better ways to deal with irritating situations today – ways that will serve your interests not only today but down the road. The Moon is in your sign until tonight, and this keeps your personal plans on the front burner.

Gemini

Gemini

Mars in your sign gives your personality a little more muscle these days, dear Gemini, which can be super when you need to accomplish something a little out of your normal comfort zone. However, sometimes you can step over yourself in your haste to get where you want to go. Today, Mars and Pluto connect in a tense aspect, and you might quickly grow frustrated with others who don’t seem to be talking straight with you. You are also feeling your desires with more intensity and urgency, complicating matters. Your best bet is to rise above the game playing and focus on softening and moderating your impulses, but it can be a little too tempting to get involved. As the day advances, your mood lightens, but you can be riled up in a different way – ideas coming to you now are exciting as your ruler, Mercury, moves to align with inventive, electric Uranus.

Cancer

Cancer

You’re in a good cycle for taking action on private matters and activity behind the scenes or in relative solitude these days, dear Cancer. However, you don’t always see a direct route to achieving your goals or pursuing your desires. This is compounded today by Mars in your privacy sector in challenging aspect to Pluto. There can be anger issues emerging that are difficult to understand or define, but they may have their root in power dynamics with a significant other or with relationships in which you feel there is far too much imbalance. Aim to ferry excess energy or intensity into constructive channels. Or, consider ways to plan out your next move rather than push your agenda now when the chances of achieving your goals are small. As the day advances, you’re in a strong position for support from or enjoyment with friends.

Leo

Leo Glyph Symbol Horoscope

Today’s energies are on the intense side as Mars and Pluto form a minor but challenging aspect, dear Leo. This influence tends to stimulate pent-up anger which can emerge as edginess and tension until you fully understand where it’s coming from. Interpersonal tensions are very likely. This might also emerge as impatience not only with others but with projects that don’t seem to be coming together soon enough. If teams are not cooperating or if you feel that you’re overloaded with more responsibilities than others, this can reach a difficult point. Pressures to meet health and work goals may be at the root of this, as you also want to experiment with new ideas and projects but can’t find the space for all of your pursuits now. Draw on your reserves of self-control now and channel your considerable energies into something truly useful to you.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol Horoscope

With Mars at the top of your chart these days, dear Virgo, you can be feeling more driven and ready to take action towards long-term goals. There can be times when you feel rushed or pressured to get where you want to go, however, and with Mars in minor but challenging aspect to Pluto today, this can be a time for feeling added tension. For some, this can be about balancing professional demands and responsibilities with relationship needs and personal time. For others, you may be fixating on problem areas or acting on fears that others are pulling the wool over your eyes. You might feel frustrated if others are blocking your way. It can be difficult to rise above the tensions of minor problems now, but feeling on edge can be a symptom of something deeper that’s worth exploring! In fact, later today you are in an excellent position to see things more objectively.

Libra

Libra

People in your life, particularly partners or a significant other, can seem a little controlling today, dear Libra. Power plays right now tend to have their root in fear of losing, whether it’s about losing a position, label, or person — such is the nature of a difficult Pluto, which is part of the day’s energy. You might become frustrated with an opinion not catching on or understood, or you might feel particularly restless and ready to take off somewhere “away from it all” but nevertheless find yourself emotionally stuck. As the day advances, however, you can mentally detach yourself from situations, and this makes you more objective and willing to let go of frustrations. In fact, tonight and tomorrow, you might come to surprising conclusions or insights into a partner or your relationships.

Scorpio

Scorpio Horoscope

You are particularly aware of and sensitive to give-and-take in a relationship these days, dear Scorpio, and today, there can be a tendency to act compulsively or to see problems as bigger than they are with your two cosmic rulers, Mars and Pluto, in a challenging aspect. You may be feeling suspicious and frustrated if someone seems to be withholding information or actively hiding something from you. You can be driven to get to the truth of a matter or to find an answer to a problem, but this can come at the cost of time, energy, and perhaps most importantly, spirit. There can be agitation with communication or transportation delays, but impatience is only going to exacerbate the problem. Learn from what seems to be triggering your fears or frustrations, but aim to work on getting to a more peaceful, self-kind frame of mind.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Horoscope

Mars in opposition to your sign these days can point to increased activities and periodic conflicts with others, dear Sagittarius. Watch that you’re not projecting your anger or will onto others during this period, as it can be very easy to do right now! Otherwise, it can be an enjoyable time when you can learn much about your desires through the mirror of your relationships. Because Mars is in challenging aspect to Pluto today, however, it would be wise to be especially mindful of automatic responses to others or frustrating situations. There is a tendency for fears of losing a position, title, or person to dominate or drive behavior today, and in your case, you or a partner/friend may be particularly possessive or acting jealously or controllingly as a result. Consider ways to release tension or resentment productively.

Capricorn

Capricorn Horoscope

You are more motivated than usual to take on ambitious or time-consuming projects related to work and health these days, dear Capricorn, and this can very often work to your advantage. However, there can be times when you want things to happen “yesterday, ” and this urgency can interfere with your mood. Watch also for a tendency to magnify or obsess over small problems today. Try not to drive yourself too hard now, and if you feel pressure to do so, examine why this may be the case. It’s possible that with Pluto in your sign that you’re expecting too much from yourself or fearful of losing face, a position, or a title. However, pushing yourself too hard and the resultant stress will not get you any closer to your goals in the long run.

Aquarius

Aquarius

A Mars-Pluto conflict today may be a little easier on you than most signs because of Mars’ compatible position vis-a-vis your sign, dear Aquarius, but it can nevertheless serve up some tension. Passions rise, and conflicts can result. As well, there is the possibility that a sense of urgency to fill your desires or a competitive insistence within you may lead you to push yourself too hard or needlessly clash with others. This is a time when you might look at others suspiciously, as you can feel that they have a hidden agenda, or when you might be tempted to manipulate if you’re not confident you’ll get what you want by being upfront and direct. Resentments tend to dissipate later today, however, as you’re more than willing to see things objectively and increasingly interested in focusing on light, positive matters.

Pisces

Pisces

Watch today for pushing too hard or taking the long, difficult route to your goals when uncomplicated may be best, dear Pisces. There is a tendency to misjudge what you can do or in what timeframe. Aim to bring problem areas and harbored resentments out into the open rather them allow them to drive your behavior. Manipulation can be a problem, and this may be a tendency on your part as you don’t seem to see a clear and direct route to your goals, or it may be that others are attempting to use you to serve their hidden agendas. Ferreting out the truth may be successful, but you may be better off thinking this through before confronting others, as delivery may be edgy today. Vulnerable relationships right now are friendships and family ones, but this is only temporary and can lead to greater understanding and the clearing of blocks.

If You Were Born Today, April 26

 

If You Were Born Today, April 26

You are a very fixed and determined person. These qualities help you to determinedly focus on a goal and patiently see it through to fruition. However, at times you can be one track minded and stubborn! Change and instability tend to bother you more than most. You can also be an exceptionally good worker with excellent work ethic and a strong sense of responsibility. Others know they can depend on you. Famous people born today: Carol Burnett, Michael Damian, Channing Tatum, T-Boz, Jordana Brewster.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

The New Moon in your Solar Return chart suggests that you will instinctively begin a new phase of your life this year. A decisively new direction has come about in your life. This can be an emotionally stimulating time in which you feel the urge to initiate and project, even if you are not quite clear about what you are projecting. Much of the energy in your life can have a magical quality to it as things are just automatically going in a certain direction. It is important to be intuitive at this time and allow the natural course to show you the way to the next step. Surprises (mostly very pleasant) pepper your year. New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as the year unfolds.

This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.

This is also a period of constructive accomplishment. You are practical and realistic, and your judgment is especially sound. You also derive much satisfaction from practical achievement. It would behoove you to identify and focus on finding pleasure in the simple things that make you happy.

It can be a fabulous year for new perspectives through meeting different people, studies, or travel. You are persuasive and can excel at marketing, promotion, and teaching, guidance, or counseling.

Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. It’s a good year in which to get organized, to do detail work, and to prepare for the future. Work done during this period in your life will have tangible results in the future. Relationships with younger people in your life are solidified. You are likely to form new relationships or connections that further your spiritual growth or to enhance existing relationships with a spirit of camaraderie. People in authority regard you favorably. Events take place in which you feel like you are moving forward and growing into a new phase of your life.

This can be a time of increased ambition in general, and while you can make huge strides towards your goals, you may be putting too much pressure on yourself to push matters forward. Manipulative tactics to achieve your goals may be especially attractive now. Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration.

While you should watch for tunnel vision this year, you have great cosmic support for diversity and experimentation. This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.

This is a period in which you feel confident and supported enough to pursue your desires. You rather readily direct your energies into meaningful activities. It’s a good time to take steps towards making yourself feel more secure and safe, as well as for family or domestic activities.

With Venus in a tense aspect to Saturn in your Solar Return, getting serious about love or money (or both) will be a theme this year. Money may be tight, or the need to buckle down with your finances may be necessary. This does not necessarily signify financial losses or hardship, but you are likely to have an increased awareness of your limits. The responsibilities of partnership are magnified this year. You are likely to be more earnest on a romantic level. An existing relationship may become more serious, or you may form a new partnership with a serious or older person. You are likely to work hard this year, and this could interfere with pleasure time.

Even so, you have distinct opportunities in the relationship department at other points in the year. There can be a stronger focus on loyalty and working relationships can improve or working with a partner can be in focus.

You have a strong, protective, and stabilizing influence with you from February forward. It helps you stay on track and meet your responsibilities. Your popularity tends to be strong, and your leadership skills are valued. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off this year–not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some manner for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work. This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come.

This is a year of new beginnings and a sense that you’re beginning a whole new “chapter” of your life. Adopting a more practical, disciplined or orderly approach to your life this year can be very beneficial. This can be a time of career advances and is a strong period for focusing on priorities. You may be pouring a lot of your energy into particular pursuits and you should come up for air from time to time! You are practical in your decision making, and you’re able to bring both enthusiasm and practicality to your endeavors this year. When you are motivated, you can accomplish great things, bringing new life to old goals, but you can too easily get yourself riled up. Look for healthy, productive channels for excess energy.

 

2017 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

2018 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.

New Moon in Taurus Horoscopes

New Moon in Taurus Horoscopes

Plant seeds for your future at April’s New Moon


The New Moon in earthy Taurus on April 26, 2017, brings a break in the cosmic madness that has bounced us around during recent weeks. Since Taurus is a Fixed sign that pursues simple pleasures, this lunation gives us an obvious signal of calmer waters ahead. However, we must take advantage of the clear sailing while it lasts. Forget about all the mental gymnastics, complex rationalizations, and inspirational dreams. It’s time to move forward with our big ideas, even if our progress is negligible at first.

Nevertheless, we can’t avoid the more complicated issues that seem to recycle from the past while mischievous Mercury is still retrograde. In fact, Mercury hooks up with electric Uranus during this New Moon to reignite brilliant thoughts that we might have set aside. Fortunately, we have the strength of our convictions to follow through with our plans. Although we may be distracted by one thing or another, the Bull’s determination rules. We can effectively capture the essence of this powerful New Moon by acknowledging the fecund energy of the fertile ground and planting seeds of practical intentions.

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

It may seem as if your life is easier to manage because you’re at the top of your game. You don’t need to push yourself very hard to demonstrate your competence while you make your tired old routines look completely new and different. But the easygoing Taurus New Moon in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem can lead to overconfidence, and too much self-assuredness creates its own kind of trouble. Sloppy logic inspires you to jump to conclusions and tempts you to take unnecessary risks. Stick to the basics and the details will quietly fall into place.

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)

It’s fantastic that you can be so productive, even if the countless distractions in your life won’t leave you alone. You’re so wrapped up in your work while the pragmatic Taurus New Moon grounds the energy in your 1st House of Self that no one is able to talk you out of your current ambitions. Your infamous bullheadedness emboldens you to plow through obstacles and overcome resistance. With a little extra effort, you will surpass your own expectations; aim high and focus on your target with singular intent.

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)

An odd mixture of mundane responsibilities and hopeful visions can confuse your progress. The Taurus New Moon shadows your 12th House of Spiritual Mystery, increasing tension between reality and fantasy. However, the earthy Taurus energy blesses you with enough stability to manifest form from an apparently unreachable dream. Don’t withdraw from the amorphous realms of unlimited potential because whatever transforms into your future starts within your imagination. Plant your garden and watch it grow.

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)

Solid opportunities to build enduring relationships with your peers add richness to your world. The sensible Taurus New Moon highlights your 11th House of Groups, strengthening your social network and increasing your popularity. Nevertheless, it’s up to you to make the first move. Taking the lead and sharing your goals shifts the dynamics and turns a casual acquaintance into a lasting friendship. It may seem risky to initiate a conversation, but a well-intended overture to the right person could benefit you for a long time to come. If you don’t take a chance, you don’t stand a chance.

Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Your inspirational words can motivate people to continue on their individual paths with great determination. Thankfully, the reliable Taurus New Moon falls in your 10th House of Status, making it easier to express yourself on the job. Although you can succinctly explain your complicated recipe for success, you still worry about your inability to execute your own strategy. Unfortunately, playing the role of an entertaining speaker isn’t enough to make your dreams come true. Face your fears and lead by example. Don’t be afraid to fail; be afraid not to try.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

You may be considering a major decision to alter the direction of your life. Or, perhaps, you’re overwhelmed with an array of projects at work. In either case, it helps to break down the dilemma into several smaller pieces and then attack them one at a time. Fortunately, the earthy Taurus New Moon adds structure to your 9th House of Big Ideas, enabling you to manage the complexity. Avoid the temptation to treat your agenda as a sprint because your destination is not as close as you think. Sustainability is your friend.

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Although Libra the Scales is all about creating balance in relationships, you crave more than harmonious interactions with others. The Taurus New Moon emphasizes your 8th House of Transformation, requiring you to sink beneath the social veneer. Unless you’re willing to go deep, you’ll likely be left feeling emotionally unsatisfied. You want to experience all the pleasures that life has to offer. Unfortunately, you could appear desperate if you act too obsessively. Intimacy is built on a strong foundation when it develops naturally on its own.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Your relationships are often complicated by your tendency to feel things in the extreme. You aren’t one to moderate your passions just to put someone at ease. However, the practical Taurus New Moon focuses on your 7th House of Partners, encouraging you to seek salvation from life’s complexities through an easygoing interaction with someone you admire. You are being offered the gift of emotional security, even if you’re afraid of being trapped by the simplicity. Be happy; relinquish your attachment to drama and overcome your fear of boredom. Love isn’t meant to be so hard.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

There’s a pile of things to do on your desk and attacking it immediately enables you to finish it sooner. But beginning your work is only the first step. It’s critical to establish a sustainable pace and create a consistent schedule since the dependable Taurus New Moon influences your 6th House of Habits. Starting a new job is a no-brainer with planets kicking up dust in feisty Aries and flighty Gemini. Nevertheless, turning your excitement into an ongoing practice assures your success. Jim Rohn said, “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You appear to express yourself without much forethought, but you still need a viable strategy if you want to be a success. The Taurus New Moon occurs in your 5th House of Creativity, helping you justify a calculated risk. However, you must follow through on whatever you begin or your efforts will be pointless. Under the right circumstances, trying something new can be a lot of fun. But to be safe, come back to your senses and step through your plan one more time before doing something you might regret. Haste makes waste.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Although you can be an innovative thinker, your lack of flexibility makes it difficult to integrate the amazing ideas that continue to spark your imagination. Fortunately, your friends and coworkers are probably quite supportive of your efforts. But the obstinate Taurus New Moon grows roots in your 4th House of Foundations, convincing you that your point of view is the only relevant one. Nevertheless, remaining open to feedback lightens your load and makes your work much less of a challenge. An old proverb declares, “A problem shared is a problem halved.”

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Thankfully, the hectic pace is settling down, but the noise is far from quiet. Don’t wait any longer; it’s time to reflect on all the recent events before you take a few deep breaths and turn your attention elsewhere. But moving on isn’t about escaping the present moment; it’s about interacting with others while you adjust to your current position. The Taurus New Moon stabilizes your 3rd House of Communication, helping to ground the energy around you. Every conversation is an opportunity to learn; every person you meet is a teacher.

General Horoscope

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.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, April 16th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope

Your ruler, Mars, forms two lovely aspects today, dear Aries, and this suggests an incredible ease and flow to your self-expression. It’s a strong day for gaining support and interest, and for seeking out what and who you want. You are appealingly upfront, and others are seeing exactly what makes you special or unique. You can make excellent progress with a business idea. The day is better for gestures and actions than verbal expressions, and if you need to unload built-up stress, it’s a fine time to do so with physical or outdoors activity. Your inner courage is strong now. You are certainly very ready to defend yourself and your worth or value, but you are best off proving your value with positive actions. You have special appeal today. After weeks of retrograde Venus activity, it finally feels that you’re going forward, and it feels great! You’ll feel even more refreshed after April 28th when Venus returns to your sign for an extended stay, but you’re feeling encouraged now.

Taurus

Taurus HoroscopeYou want to make positive steps towards a goal or improve your life today, dear Taurus, or you might simply want to put overthinking behind you and enjoy the moment. Your spirits run high, and you can be feeling empowered. Not only has Venus, your ruler, ended its retrograde, but Mars in your sign is also forming two encouraging aspects today, facilitating efforts to put the past behind you or to reach out to others. You may meet a special friend or someone special through a friend or group connection (or possibly even networking). Friendships and love relationships can strengthen or enliven now. Mercury remains retrograde in your sign, and you may not always feel that you have the right words at the tip of your tongue, but your body language is very effective. You are giving off warm and stimulating vibes. It’s a good time to follow up with others. You might enjoy productive or motivating activities with people around you now.

Gemini

Gemini

While a lot is going on inside you these days, dear Gemini, you are likely to wear a beautiful glow today and attract some attention for it.

Mercury Retrograde Dos and Don’ts

Mercury Retrograde Dos and Don’ts

Keep moving forward while Mercury moves backward


 

There is one golden rule when it comes to Mercury Retrograde phases. Interestingly enough, it’s grammatical. If you can commit this simple tenet to memory then you’ll find that retrograde cycles of Mercury are not only easier to navigate, but also rich with potential for growth and personal development.

Ready class? Here’s the rule. Remember back in grade school when you learned about the prefix “re?” Well, a prefix is placed before the root of a word and this one means “again.” All you need to remember is that during any Mercury Retrograde cycle, if you’re doing something that begins with “re” such as reassess, revise, revisit, reconnect, redo, recall, resay, refresh, you’re right on track. If you’re not then stop immediately or else suffer the Mercury Retrograde migraine!

Here’s a top list of dos and don’ts that will help you navigate the confusion around any Mercury Retrograde phase, and don’t forget to save and share the graphic below for a reminder all Mercury Retrograde!

DON’T initiate. DO finish what you’ve started.
No matter how fantastic your new plan may be, hold off on the launch while Mercury is trekking backwards. There’s a high probability that you’re missing crucial information or that whatever you pitch to others isn’t going to sound as phenomenal to them as it does to you. Instead, use Mercury’s Retrograde as a time to take stock of whatever you’ve already got going on and do your best to polish up and finish existing projects.

This certainly holds true for writing projects (and Mercury Retrograde is a perfect time to edit and revise work). However, it also applies to all areas of your life, from work, money and relationships. Usually, it’s best to not start a new job, get married or begin a new financial chapter in your life now. Polish up your resume, plan your wedding or research investments instead.

DON’T purchase big ticket items. DO comparison shop.
You should not purchase any big ticket item such as a car, computer, appliance or even a piece of jewelry during Mercury’s retrograde for several reasons. First, if it has moving or electronic parts, there’s a good chance that you’ll find a glitch. Repairs are fine (and a perfect prefix) on existing equipment … however no one should have to repair a brand new item! In addition, during Mercury retrograde you might not receive the best bargain if you rush to purchase. If you can wait for your item, it’ll be wiser to shop after Mercury is direct. In the meantime, comparison shop and spend more time thinking about what you really want. You might find that you’ve changed your mind completely by the time Mercury turns direct!

DON’T sign contracts, make verbal agreements or life altering decisions. DO renegotiate, mediate and reconsider existing ones.
This might be the most widely known tip about Mercury Retrograde, but it bears clarification. If at all possible, avoid new agreements! Because once you sign the dotted line or give that handshake, you will likely find that a series of events or misunderstandings cause the initial pact to change or fall apart. Instead, this is a good time to consider a renegotiation. Is your lease up for renewal on your apartment? Now is the time to either shop around or do research on a better agreement to propose to your landlord once Mercury turns direct.

Are you considering asking for a raise? Use this cycle to recognize what you are worth but also to reevaluate whether or not you’re offering your best to the company you work for. If you’re not, now is the time to implement revisions. Are you ready to break up with your lover? Even if your mind is made up, you’ll want to wait. A life altering decision implemented under Mercury retrograde has a waffling effect. You might go through a “make up and break up” phase that is exhausting. If you want a clean break and you’re sure, wait until Mercury is direct. There will be no confusion or second guessing!

DON’T hide under a rock and stop living. DO expect delays and snafus.
Preparation and patience are key during Mercury Retrograde cycles. If, for example, you have a trip planned and you notice it’s during a Mercury Retrograde, don’t cancel your plans and stop living! Instead, consider the added potential for mishaps and prepare accordingly. Recheck your baggage to ensure you’ve packed everything vital. Make sure you have all the proper documentation for your trip. Anticipate delays due to the added issue of miscommunication. Roll with it!

In short, Mercury Retrograde cycles are not meant to be the source of endless aggravation. However, if you go against the flow of this cycle you’re likely to experience more stress. Taking pause every now and then allows us to gain a new perspective and realize what we might have missed in the past. Now we get a chance to fix it and become even stronger because of it … thank you Mercury Retrograde!

Mercury Retrograde Horoscopes Spring 2017

Mercury Retrograde Horoscopes Spring 2017

Get back on the right track during this Mercury Retrograde

This spring, Mercury will retrograde through two zodiac signs, giving us a cosmic opportunity to re-evaluate more than one area of our life in order to make sure we’re on the right track.

On April 9, he’ll turn retrograde at 5 degrees of Taurus. Then on April 20, Mercury will back into Aries, where he’ll remain retrograde until May 3. Re-assessing the material side of your life (Taurus) as well as your personal identity (Aries) during this retrograde will keep your mind extra busy…

Be sure to read your sign’s horoscope below to see what this Mercury Retrograde cycle will bring up in your world!

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

Money and identity are very much intertwined. This will be quite an interesting Mercury Retrograde cycle, because you’ll start out revising your ideas and thoughts connected to finances, but by April 20 your concerns will turn toward your self. How are you communicating — or miscommunicating — to others? Is it affecting your ability to earn money? Are you on the right track when it comes to developing your talents? These are a few of the many questions you’ll want to tackle during this time.

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)

Initially, you may take a giant step back and realize that your words are not coming out in the way you intend during this Mercury Retrograde. If they are, then there might be something amiss in your delivery, because they are certainly not being received in the correct way by others. Use the first part of this retrograde phase to address this.

After April 20 you might want to spend more time alone revising an important communications-related project. Or, you might rehash unresolved matters during therapy. A breakthrough is possible after May 3 when Mercury turns direct.

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)

You might fly under the radar during the first half of this Mercury Retrograde cycle. There’s something about your communication that you may feel insecure about. If so, until April 20, you’ll have a wonderful opportunity to work through it. After the 20th you’ll begin putting it into practice as you notice there’s more happening socially. If you are working on a presentation or speech, this will be a perfect time to have a few practice runs in order to work out any kinks. Schedule it after May 3.

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)

If you’re working on a website, social media campaign, or other internet-related project, there might be a few hiccups to work through during this Mercury Retrograde. After the April 20 you will have an opportunity to revise the strategy you’re taking in order to achieve a significant career goal. You may also realize that this is not the time to start anything new, but instead to perfect what you already have in the works. Your boss will notice. Lastly, be wary of miscommunication to a higher-up. Avoid vital conversations until after May 3 when Mercury is direct again.

Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Even if you’re not ready to take on an entirely new career path, it may soon become clear that unless you go back to school or study for a license or certification, you won’t be able to get ahead. Until April 20 you’ll re-evaluate your professional goals, then after this point you’re likely to hit the books. Hire a tutor or ask someone to help you with the more difficult material, since it may not be easy to assimilate on your own until after May 3.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

You might feel as if you’re having a crisis of faith until April 20. Re-evaluating your beliefs or spirituality is likely during the first half of this Mercury Retrograde cycle. Fortunately, you’re likely to have a deep breakthrough that will lead you to your truth.

After the 20th and until May 3, you’re likely to focus on fixing any financial mishaps you discover. Errors in taxes or financial documents may be found just in the nick of time.

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

During the first portion of this Mercury Retrograde cycle you’re likely to pay close attention to your financial life. One possibility is that you’re applying for a line of credit, student loan, or mortgage. If the paperwork is delayed, be patient. Do what you can to ensure you have submitted all of the proper documentations. Same goes if you are experiencing any frustration with insurance claims.

After April 20 you might have to work through a misunderstanding with your partner in business or in your personal life.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

During the first portion of this Mercury Retrograde cycle you and your partner might feel as if you’re in relationship rehab. There might be extra misunderstandings, so exercise patience. It’ll be a great time, however, to resolve a previously unsettled conversation.

After April 20 you’ll focus on polishing your professional assignments. Expect to spend more time revising your work. Avoid office gossip though — it’ll get out of hand very quickly.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

If you’re going through any health situation, it might feel quite difficult to make a decision regarding what protocol to follow or even what doctor to hire to help treat it during this Mercury Retrograde. Until April 20, spend time doing research on your condition and then be sure to ask your health care provider plenty of questions. Make final decisions after May 3 if possible, when mercury is finally direct.

After April 20, you might notice a strange situation happening regarding your love life. An ex might come back into your life. It should be interesting!

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Miscommunication between you and your sweetheart or one of your children is possible during this Mercury Retrograde. You might not be able to agree on a major decision and if so, the frustration may not let up until after May 3, when Mercury is moving direct again. Another possibility is that you’ll feel creatively blocked. Use this time as an opportunity — revise your approach to any artistic endeavor. After April 20 you might hear from relatives who fell off the grid. It’ll be nice to reunite.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

This is not the time to sign any real estate contracts if at all possible. On April 9 Mercury turns retrograde in your home and family sector, where he remains until April 20. At that point he’ll retrograde back into your message sector and will not turn direct until May 3. You, more than others, will likely experience frustration connected to contracts, decisions, and other communication-related to domestic matters. Be patient and do what you can to clarify any misunderstandings on your end.

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

On April 9 Mercury, the planet of communication, will turn retrograde right in the area of your chart ruling all matters of communication — your 3rd house. As a result, until April 20 you’ll be especially sensitive to mishaps during conversations and any type of correspondence from written to telephone to email. Be aware!

On the 20th Mercury will back pedal into your earned income sector, and will retrograde here until May 3. View this as an opportunity to reconcile your finances, despite the initial headaches.
