Your Horoscope: April 12-18, 2017
By Denise Guzzardo
Mercury retrograde has arrived once again and will remain active until May 3. Communication and travel can become complicated during planetary climates such as these. The tendency to become aggravated or overly sensitive can hold quite an emphasis as well. However, it doesn’t have to be written in stone as long as you allow yourself plenty of time to get from point A to point B. Check and double check all forms of correspondence and avoid confrontational dialogue. Everything will be just fine. Many times a Mercury retrograde can provide some pleasant surprises as well. Enjoy!
You may be feeling a little bit under the weather emotionally or physically early on this week with the full moon in your sign April 11. Try not to put a guilt trip on yourself about what you have or have not accomplished; take time to rest and focus on your health instead. By week’s end you will be able to make up for lost time and there will be room for a little amusement as well. Finances are improving this month, Aries.
Take a moment to reflect on all of your accomplishments. There may be too much emphasis on where you are not as opposed to where you are. When you can truly embrace all that you have achieved, a second wind will arrive and take you to the next level. A past love may regret leaving you behind and want to make amends this week. It may be too little too late for you, Taurus.
Even though you may be tempted to call someone out on their strange behavior, it’s best to let sleeping dogs lie for now. If this should continue after your ruling planet Mercury goes direct, the gloves are off, Gemini. Romance will also be in alignment once Mercury goes direct May 3.
Take the time to celebrate the achievements of another this week. If you pour some energy into a loved one’s accomplishments, your own life will show even more promise and success. There may be a little underlying fear with this individual’s leap of faith; tell them you know they will succeed. You will score a major business contact this week. All of the stars align in your favor, Cancer.
Large groups or organizations will be singing your praises now. Make sure you are available to receive your rewards. It’s your turn to shine, dress for success and hit the pavement running. You have a lot of catching up to do this week. A new friend sees you in an entirely different light now. By week’s end you will have expanded your social circle even more, Leo.
Try to find some humor in this short-term work project you’re involved in, otherwise you will lose your mind with all of the nonsense surrounding it. You may have been strategically placed in this setting to teach those around you valuable lessons. If they don’t end up getting it, consider the source and move on. Maybe down the road it will sink in somehow. You are making a difference; it may not be evident now, Virgo.
It may be time to consider a plan B regarding your finances. You’re on the upswing and you have to believe in yourself. The minute we start allowing fear to infiltrate our lives we’re asking for trouble. You’ve worked hard and you’re entitled to some simple pleasures in life. An old friendship may try to revive itself this week. Although you may have your reservations regarding this aspect, it may be a good idea to hear them out. You will find knowledge in this interaction regardless of the outcome, Libra.
Business can be a bit demanding early on this week, yet there are significant improvements that arrive as a result of it. An impromptu gathering will provide you with new connections for love as well as business. Make sure you are stepping out there and accepting invitations to socialize this week. Be cautious not to overdo with your physical body. You cannot afford to be laid up with this hectic schedule arriving at this time, Scorpio
Time to revitalize that creative project you’ve placed on the back burner in the recent past. I know it’s been difficult to find the time with all of the other responsibilities you’ve had on your plate; however, it will prove to be beneficial for you as well as those around you. You have the opportunity to resolve some differences with another this week. Get it over with, Sag.
Romantic opportunities continue to move in a positive direction. If you take a sensitive and compassionate approach you will see immediate results. Finances are powerful and additional income may come from a creative source. It’s time to dust off the canvas and utilize these gifts of yours for the greater good. Place items you have no use for up for sale at this time. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, Capricorn.
You’re going through an emotional rebirth at this time. As you rise like the phoenix you are able to see how valuable your contributions to humanity really are. These aspects allow us to strip away all of the old and create a new way of thinking and receiving. This is a valuable time frame to rebuild your life. The weekend is filled with surprises, Aquarius.
A dark-haired male provides you with an opportunity you shouldn’t refuse during this lunar cycle. Why not look at all of the possibilities that could develop out of this endeavor. You’re in a position to expand and grow now, so put your ideas into action. The rippling effect of this benefits everyone involved, Pisces.
