In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Monday, April 13, 2009
Aries: You are experiencing the planetary “new year,” or Vernal Equinox, in all your glory, Aries. Aries is one of our most precious renewable resources; that is, you are a bastion of productivity and it seems to never run out. You are characteristically full of energy today, making you a powerhouse at home, at work, or wherever you may find yourself (climbing Mt. Everest isn’t out of the question when it comes to you Ariens!). This evening, don’t let your temper get the best of you. Remember patience is a virtue – even though it may not be one of your particular virtues.
Taurus: You’ve been hiding out in that hole for far too long, Taurus. Get out and get some air, it will do you good! And your honey might want to see you out of sweatpants and with your hair down. Okay, I’ll admit, planting the seeds for the future – either in your actual garden out back or in the garden of life – is always dirty work. But you are up to the task! And now is the perfect time to lay the groundwork for the new you.
Gemini: Gemini the social butterfly starts off the week fluttering to and fro and making herself seen and heard. You Geminis are so amazing at how you can not only make sure you are at the right place at the right time, but also make sure a couple of mutual friends (or acquaintances) are with you, in order that they can meet and go off and do something amazing. That is one of your gifts, Gemini – you are a facilitator. And today, you just may make a huge difference in a friend’s life. Go Gemini!
Cancer: Cancers never fail to amaze us all when it comes to the balancing act between home and work that they manage so well, and today is no exception. Although you’ll be under pressure from a higher-up, you won’t break a sweat. Despite how hard you work at your career, your real calling is being there for your family. You may be tempted to surprise everyone with a gourmet meal for dinner – despite the fact that you got up at the crack of dawn to read that report before work. If only we could all have your knack for harmonizing work and family, Cancer!
Leo: That book, play, or album you’ve been secretly writing in the privacy of your own home may take on a life of its own and break out this week, Leo. And you need to shine, so don’t fight it! Leos know how to be the center of attention, but when it comes to staying under the radar, some of you go a little crazy. Well, the time is finally right to unveil that new creative project you’ve been working on for the past year. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the reaction from your peers.
Virgo: All work and no play makes Virgo a very happy person. In fact, you’ve been working a little too hard lately, Virgo, and this week might be the right time to take it easy. You’ve built up enough equity in the workplace to allow yourself a much-needed break from your hectic schedule. By break I don’t mean stay at the office until 6 p.m. instead of 8 p.m. I mean leave at 5 p.m.! Enjoy a quiet evening with your honey, your children, or a good friend – and leave your work behind at the office for a change.
Libra: One of the romantic of signs, you Libras can scarcely contain yourselves when you have a crush, or when you are in love. Or when a crush leads to love. You have had some good luck in the romance department for the past month or so, and this week, you are finally beginning to feel secure with your new special someone. Tell them how you feel today – the words will come out right. And don’t dilly dally on an important decision this evening – just go with your gut!
Scorpio: It’s time to get back to work Scorpio. I know, you Scorpions are always working. The really important question is; however, on what? Are you laboring on a project that will eventually blossom into full bloom along with your beaten up sense of self-confidence? Or are you wasting your time chasing recognition and acceptance from people whose recognition and acceptance is really not that important? Do less to impress and you’ll find more satisfying success.
Sagittarius: You Sagittarians are always on the go, and with the moon in your sign today, you’ll be at the top of your game. You are a master when it comes to socializing, and today may revolve around evening plans. What to wear, what to bring, what to say – let all those thoughts go. Try a new approach to mingling in the social sphere. Empty your mind of pretensions and let your true self shine through. You won’t be the only one who is impressed with how appealing you are when you bring yourself down to planet earth with the rest of us.
Capricorn: Today you’ll be a powerhouse at work, but that’s nothing new. You are always a powerhouse at work, whether you realize it or not. What needs attention now is your home and family. Bring your sweetie a little gift that says, “I love you” and clear your schedule for the evening. Tonight is the night to chill at home with those that mean the most to you.
Aquarius: You are full of witty, intelligent things to say my brilliant Aquarius star. However, today you may find that your usual court of admirers is otherwise occupied. But that’s no problem .. .you’ll just go out to someplace you’ve never been before and attract new ones! You may be taken off guard when someone from your past reveals their affection for you this evening.
Pisces: You may be finishing up a redecorating project or perhaps just a total reorganization of your home or office. It is a success! Now it is time to move on and get started on another project. But not before celebrating your success. Tonight is the perfect night to reconcile with your significant other, especially if you’ve been the one drawing out a conflict. Go out, stay in – it doesn’t matter as long as all your attention is focused where it belongs: on that special someone.
