Get A Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for April 19th

Minor annoyances early in the day may require our attention but we might not have a chance to finish what we start as more significant issues arise. Giant Jupiter’s long-lasting square to revolutionary Uranus is the main event for the next several days, rocking our lives with breakups and breakthroughs. Meanwhile, the Moon enters emotionally disciplined Capricorn at 9:27 pm EDT, making us very determined to take care of any unfinished business.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You don’t appreciate anyone trying to control you, but defending your territory today could escalate argumentative words into something more. A minor conflict may heat up way beyond its initial scope and then take days or even weeks to settle back down. Keep in mind that you can be honest and direct without being unkind. Practicing the art of compassion enables you to be part of the solution instead of the problem.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You are extremely serious about making long-term plans today, even if other people seem resistant to your ideas. But you aren’t willing to wait for formal approval if you think that delaying the final commitment now could place your entire enterprise in jeopardy. Don’t panic; it’s not helpful to act impulsively when it comes to your future. If you push others too hard their support may be short-lived. Avoid getting swept up in a wave of change unless it’s going your way.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Fundamental changes in a relationship may have already started to modify your attitude about expressing your emotions. If you usually prefer tap dancing your way around deep feelings because they make you uncomfortable, this is your chance to evolve in a profound manner. Consider spending more time exploring the shadows of awareness now that you know the real magic is hidden from the light of day. But keep in mind that you can’t start a serious dialogue until you open your heart.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Although you’re often eager to sink into the subjective world of emotions, someone else may be one step ahead of you these days. But you’re not interested in being drawn into other people’s dramas today, especially if you already have too much on your plate. There’s a trick to being compassionate without giving away your power. Create whatever boundaries you need now in order to maintain your integrity and your sanity.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might try to squeeze in some exciting activities today, but your calendar probably doesn’t have much extra room. You realize that the fun may be coming to an end for a while and you have an important role to play over the days ahead. But you’re stepping onto new ground, making it even more complicated to navigate your way. It’s less about getting your needs met now than it is about minimizing them so you can help others. Don’t harbor ill will toward those who could use your support; your positive attitude alone improves the situation.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Scheduling spontaneous playtime may seem like an oxymoron, but a more structured approach to your day gives you the stability you need to let loose. Having some fun at home is a great idea now as long as you acknowledge what everyone else wants too. But don’t try to talk anyone into following your game plan; just stick to your agenda and invite your inner artist out to play. Once others see you having such a good time today, they will naturally want to join in.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Give yourself the luxury of not adhering to a calendar for a while. Even if you have valid reasons why you should stay at home today, everyone else is heading out to have fun. As much as a part of you wants to fit into the group dynamic, it’s more critical now for you to reconnect with what’s in your own heart. You’re tempted to deal with your dilemma on a purely intellectual basis, but it’s much healthier to keep your emotions in the mix. Although it might surprise others, a little time alone may be just what you need to figure out what you really want.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You could try to ride the brakes today, but oddly enough slowing down just seems to make everything feel more intense. Protecting your money or property may be an important theme now, but make sure that you’re not just reacting out of fear. Separating your emotions from your current need for stability helps to prevent you from getting carried away by your expectations. Anything can happen if you remain open to the element of surprise.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are a person on a mission now and there’s little that will keep you from your self-appointed tasks. If you set your heart on a specific destination, you are sure that you can reach it no matter what the cost. However, it’s a smart idea to tread carefully because you might inadvertently hurt someone’s feelings in your haste. There’s nothing wrong with taking a little extra time to check in with those you love even if they’re acting like everything is fine. Success is sweeter when shared.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may sense that your window of opportunity is closing fast and you haven’t yet received an acknowledgment for your contribution. Instead of waiting for others to say something today, do whatever is necessary to change your expectations and talk yourself out of your current need for recognition. You will be happier if you withdraw for a while to recharge your emotional batteries now instead of hanging your success on anyone else’s opinion. When it comes down to it, the only one you really need to impress is yourself.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Sometimes being a part of a group experience can be the most amazing thing in the world as your individuality merges with a larger cause. However, if others attempt to coerce you into supporting them now, hold firm to your position even if it means going your own way. Don’t do anything that doesn’t make intuitive sense to you. Even if you’re not so sure about your decision today, trusting your gut won’t likely lead you astray. It’s more essential than ever to dance to the rhythm of your own drum.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your friends and family might make you crazy today as they try to drag you into their personal battles. Fortunately, you have the sense to gauge what’s important now and for the weeks ahead. But don’t unilaterally put an end to an argument by just walking away to avoid it; denial only leads to bigger problems later. Spend some time in quiet contemplation so you can establish a whole new set of priorities. Reconnecting with others after you develop a healthier perspective enables you to remain grounded when you step back into the drama.

Jupiter Retrograde (November 7th)

Jupiter Retrograde

Seek inner wisdom as giant Jupiter spins back

Enthusiastic Jupiter, the happy-go-lucky planet of expansion and growth, slows down and turns backward in the sign of Cancer just after midnight on Nov. 7, 2013, lasting until March 6, 2014.

During this time, we may not feel as optimistic about things, and our plans to tackle big new ideas or endeavors will slow and perhaps stall. But Jupiter is a philosophical planet, so we can still use this time to contemplate our beliefs and expectations, and re-examine where we’re headed.

We all have inner wisdom if we take the time to listen to it, and Jupiter Retrograde encourages just that: Take a time out, slow down and listen to your inner voice. What is it telling you to do? It should be easier to hear now.

Do you like your job? Are you happy in your relationship? Have you been fooling yourself about something? Jupiter Retrograde asks those kinds of questions, and gives you more than three months to think about the answers before going direct.

Even while retrograde, bountiful Jupiter wants to help you figure out how to grow and change and become the best version of yourself. Use this time wisely — it’s a gift!
