In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Friday, April 17, 2009
Aries: When it comes to money, you can never get enough — as soon as you get any, it’s gone. This weekend, when you find yourself strapped in an emergency, you’ll resolve to start handling your finances more wisely. Open a savings account so you can stash your cash — especially a tax refund you may have coming to you — for a rainy day. You may decide to look for a part-time job if you don’t already have one so you can be even more independent. Hit the social scene this weekend when the moon enters Aquarius and revitalizes your energy, lifts your spirits and makes you more charming and charismatic than ever.
Taurus: The moon enters Aquarius this weekend, which heightens your natural gift of gab. Get yourself psyched up for an important meeting — like an interview for your dream job — by shopping for an outfit that will make the perfect impression. This weekend, fiery Mars gives you the guts to make a move on a cute guy you’ve been eyeing.
Gemini: Today, you have no choice but to keep your mind on the massive load of work that’s piled up on your plate. But this weekend, you’ll come out of your shell and socialize. Have fun, but don’t go overboard and stay out too late; you’ll regret it Sunday morning when your kids wake you up for breakfast at 8 a.m. The moon enters Aquarius this weekend, making you super-emotional.
Cancer: You’re in relationship hell this week, Cancer. Stand up for yourself and speak your mind if you feel that your significant other is not being completely straight with you or dedicating enough time to your relationship. Mars buoys you with an extra boost of energy and gets your juices flowing this weekend, making it the perfect time to get going on a major assignment. Don’t be shy — ask a friend or colleague for help if you need it!
Leo: As a proud Leo, you’re usually quite sure of yourself and lacking self-esteem is not a common problem for you. However, you may suffer from momentary lapses of insecurity, most likely about your appearance, and as a result you can be very self-conscious at times, especially when in the company of the opposite sex. You often compensate by being overly confident, arrogant or conceited to hide your true insecurities. Avoid playing these silly games if you’re feeling nervous or unsure of yourself this weekend.
Virgo: This morning you’re irritable and grouchy. You’ll throw yourself into your work this weekend simply to get your mind off your problems. However, unforeseen problems may also arise with your work, which could further irritate you. Your mood is brightened by the moon’s entry into Aquarius, and you’ll especially enjoy the children in your life on Sunday.
Libra: Your mind is on romance all day long, Libra. All you can think about all day at work is that special someone. The moon in Aquarius on Saturday prompts you to spend some time out and about with your boyfriend or husband. Sunday’s a good day to do some shopping for a major purchase you’ve been putting off.
Scorpio: All work and no play makes Scorpio a satisfied woman! You’ll finally finish a project you’ve been agonizing over on Friday, so after an exhausting week you’ll want some fun! The moon in Aquarius on Saturday makes you crave the company of others, although you may not necessarily feel like going out. Have friends over for an impromptu party on Saturday night. You’ll have a great time and may even be introduced to someone very interesting through a mutual friend.
Sagittarius: Today you’ll be a wizard when it comes to any writing or analytical work that needs to be done. Your super-creative mood on Friday is just intensified by the moon’s entry into Aquarius on Saturday. Do something creative on Saturday, perhaps even with your children; you’ll really enjoy expressing your artistic side. On Sunday, don’t make an impulse purchase, no matter how tempted you are!
Capricorn: Today you may experience a financial setback, such as a temporary reduction in your cash flow. As a worrywart, Capricorn, you take money matters so seriously that any problems, such as not getting hired for job you’ve had your heart set on, could totally crush you. Don’t waste your time sweating it; everything happens for a reason and with your determination you’re bound to get an awesome job. Just have faith in yourself and a positive attitude — everything will work out for the best.
Aquarius: You’re ready to express your feelings honestly rather than hide behind rationales and excuses, which may even surprise you at first. When the moon enters Aquarius on Saturday, it will be a good time to have an intimate discussion. You will be able to identify with and communicate your deepest emotions, as well as really listen to what a loved one has to say.
Pisces: Today is a fairly pleasant day. You may be looking forward to some plans for the evening. As a result, it’s kind of hard to concentrate on any on your work all day. The mood is hopeful and optimistic by dusk. Spend some time with friends or a romantic partner this weekend. Get yourself out of the house on Saturday night; it’s sure to be entertaining. On Sunday, quiet time at home with your family is very relaxing.
