Horoscopes (Week of April 24, 2017)
By Felicity Koch
Capricorn (Jan. 20 – Feb. 15) – Today you’re at level 10 of brains, wit and energy. This would be a great time to work on a major cleaning. It’s high time you got rid of that dead weight or those unused things weighing you down. Your clarity on what’s valuable and what isn’t, just can’t be beat. Trust yourself. Get a fresh start and you’ll be ready for success.
Aquarius (Feb. 16 – March 10) – Your intelligence, emotional and intellectual, is up. It’s so high, in fact, that you’re able to analyze any situation in an instant. So trust your first impressions. No matter how much other people try to change your mind. If a Han Solo (a charmer, for non Star Wars Fans) has everyone else fooled, that’s their problem. You’re not about to join the blind followers.
Pisces (March 11 – April 17) – This is a time for selfless action. You need to turn away from your personal worries and put yourself at someone else’s disposal. Talk to a friend who’s been going through a lot and ask them if you can do anything to help. Your gestures of compassion are powerful. Now is not the time to keep track of the favors you grant. It will all come back to you.
Aries (April 18 – May 12) – It might do you some good to step back from your crowd of friends and look at things from an outsider’s view. You’ll finally see things as they are, which will either reinforce what you wanted, or make you feel like changes are in order. If it’s the second, don’t worry. Do what’s right, and don’t shy away from explaining yourself.
Taurus (May 13 – June 20) – As the leader in a group, you need to take into thought what it is the rest of the group want. Being the boss doesn’t mean you get to do whatever! It means you have to what is best for the group. Try to be sensitive to the people who don’t know what’s going on. You have to bring them up to speed. By the end, everyone will be working together.
Gemini (June 21 – July 19) – No matter how tempting it might be to make one last, strong push toward the finish line, try not to force things any further. You’re where you need to be, no matter how impatient you may be. Not everyone is on the same timetable. You need to be mindful of that fact. Wait for your partners to catch up to you.
Cancer (July 20 – Aug. 19) – Focus on completing a project. You’ve been able to enjoy freedom of thought lately, and good for you for letting your mind wander to new territory. You need to build on the experiences you’ve had and pinpoint the one thing that deserves your energy right now. Your mind is as sharp as a razor, and whether the task you choose is as simple as shopping for a birthday present you’ll do it quickly.
Leo (Aug. 10 – Sept. 15) – If one of your friends has been holding out on you, they’ll come clean and let you in on what’s been going on. You’ll find that your suspicions were right on, but you might want to act surprised. It’ll be much more fun! A celebration may be in order, so have some suggestions in your mind.
Virgo (Sept. 16 – Oct. 29) – Get as active as possible. Your mood will be greatly improved by raising your heartbeat. So walk instead of ride. Get on your bike instead of into your car. If you continue with these small changes, you’ll start to notice changes. Mental and physical ones. Every day, there are chances to better your health. You just need to take them.
Libra (Oct. 30 – Nov. 22) – Isn’t it amazing that when you finally get around to cleaning out your closet and you end up throwing out more than you ever knew you had? Promise yourself that you’ll never let your unused stuff pile up like that! Also clean out your emotional closet. Many feelings, grudges or regrets are there and they’re doing you no good. Let these things pass away. You’ll be amazed at how much lighter you feel.
Scorpio (Nov. 23 – Dec. 6) – Where do you fit into your community? Do you want your role to grow, or shrink? These types of questions will be on your mind. As you get older, your sense of connection with the people around you is becoming more important. Find out how you can get involved in a neighborhood group,or just a social club of people who share your common interests.
Sagittarius (Dec. 7 – Jan. 19) – There can be no such thing as too much happiness in life, although the amount of happy energy coming your way could overwhelm you. You’re lucky you have problems like this, so be grateful for the embarrassment of stuff you’re currently enjoying. Reaching out to other people is important, since you have so much positive energy to share.
