Today’s Horoscope: Thursday, April 9, 2009
Aries March 21 – April 19
The best way to break the ice is to find common ground. Take the hint during lulls in conversation today; search for a common ground to break down the tensions. The good news is that your efforts to build solid relationships will pay off in the long term.
Try: collaborating with a friend
Taurus April 20 – May 20
You may find your relationship changing as you become aware of cracks in what you thought was a solid foundation. There’s nothing wrong with idealizing someone, but if you find your inner light dimming, it may be time to move on. If things aren’t working, then do what you feel necessary to bring the peace back in your life. It would be wise to postpone financial dealings until tomorrow.
Try: not being so perfect
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Some rules are designed to be broken. If you find yourself caught between a rock and a hard place today, take a moment to contemplate to what degree you would feel comfortable breaking a rule. Reconciliations are possible right now. Don’t let someone else push you to the point at which you lose your temper. Consider setting yourself up to lead a group of volunteers.
Try: accepting your failures
Cancer June 22 – July 22
There’s no time like the present to change a first impression or at least take the opportunities you are given to change your life. This should be a period to change your strategies, not a period to reinforce a bad impression. On a lighter note, now is a good time to go for a change in appearances.
Try: eating fried grasshoppers
Leo July 23 – August 22
Choose your projects carefully and your battles only after you have clearly thought about your options. Decide what has staying power and follow your heart. In fact, you should always follow that advice when it comes time to deciding what is best for you.
Try: playing in a penny arcade
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Today you will discover that what goes up always comes down. You can expect big changes in your love life, and your uncertain future may dampen even that relationship. Look for an opportunity to transform your career. Call everyone you can to put yourself back on top of a game that you know well.
Try: having acupuncture
Libra September 23 – October 22
Take note that not everything is how it appears at first. Rather than rejoicing when you receive major news today, verify the facts first. Expect to meet up with an adventurous soul today; he or she will cheer you up and make you feel like you can conquer the world. Your thoughts might turn to love as you learn to release the tensions surrounding your day.
Try: identifying your weaknesses
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Be very careful what you wish for today. Speculation, especially, should be avoided at all costs. Try not to pin your hopes on outside forces; instead, use your innate ability to conquer all obstacles in your path.
Try: learning to take a picture
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Don’t believe everything you watch on TV, read on the Internet or hear over the radio today. There are forces in the universe that are bent on confusing fact with fiction, and you’ll find the best way to learn the truth is not to blindly accept what others tell you but to get out in the world and investigate a situation yourself.
Try: renewing your library card
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Stress can play an important role in your health, especially when you don’t have a plan in place to relieve those unpleasant memories. There is hope, though — a healthy diet and 30 minutes of exercise daily can improve your situation. You probably won’t feel ready to socialize today, but it may become necessary as your networking skills take over. Try not to demand too much of yourself at this time, and instead, just learn to go with the flow.
Try: cooking with an Indian spice
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
The last couple of weeks have given you a chance to consider what will happen should you lose your job. On one hand, you are looking forward to taking a break, but on the other hand, you aren’t prepared to have your income slashed. What you do know about yourself is that you can make anything happen. The words never, ever and can’t should disappear from your vocabulary. Believing is the easy part; putting your thoughts into play requires action.
Try: coming to terms with your past
Pisces February 19 – March 20
With so many news reports focusing on the negative item, it’s nice to hear good news every now and then. For the past couple of days, you have taken very little interest in your work, and others are noticing. Perhaps it’s because you have had a hard time dealing with so much tragedy. There is hope; more Americans are realizing that constant exposure to negativity is creating stress in their lives.
Try: becoming more adventurous
