Cancer, a friend proves to be extremely supportive

Horoscopes for April 10

  • Apr. 10, 2018 1:30 a.m.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you see the power of setting intentions. What you decide is important can easily be materialized. You know what you want, and you won’t back down; you support yourself in pursuing your desires. If you are single, should you desire a passionate romance or relationship, you will have just that. Cupid’s arrow could hit you any time from summer on. If you are attached, the two of you enter a meaningful period in your relationship. Plan on doing some traveling together. AQUARIUS reminds you of the wilder side of life.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Your fiery energy, when focused, can eliminate more work for you. Others note your efficiency and seem to want to tap into it. An observer might ask you how to proceed with a project. A financial matter could go from one extreme to the other. Tonight: As you like it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You might feel pushed to get your errands done. Expect a heavy pace and a lot of distractions.

You will reach your goal, but you could feel drained by the end of it. A supportive friend asks you if you want help. Say “yes,” and you’ll have more fun. Tonight: Out late.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Your ability to move through a problem and resolve it emerges. You have entered an excellent period in which you are able to prioritize your time. Be wise, and do not make a final decision just yet. You are in the process of evaluating. Tonight: Catch up on calls and emails.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Be more forthright in what you do and how you do it. A friend proves to be extremely supportive and positive, as he or she understands where you are coming from.

Don’t underestimate what is happening. Remain more upbeat. Tonight: Buy a thank-you gift.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will want to head in a new direction, but you could get hit with so many distractions that you might not accomplish your goal. Use the delay well. Understand and embrace the power of slowing down. Tonight: Go along with a dear friend’s or loved one’s suggestion.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You are in a position where you can accomplish what you want and still have some extra time to spare. A call from a loved one might intrigue you. As a result, you’ll be encouraged to move through some work more quickly than usual. Tonight: Soak away some stress, then decide.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You come up with some unique ideas that seem to work better than the present set of plans. Convincing someone else of that fact could be difficult. Listen to your gut when dealing with a playful person; you likely will be distracted by his or her charm. Tonight: Say “yes.”

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might feel as if you need to make a major change. What you do not realize is that you have been changing slowly and are in the midst of a personal transformation. Make no major decisions about your life for a while; revisit this issue later. Tonight: Happily head home.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Note the relaxed mood around you. Return calls and get into the social nature of the moment. Network and swap jokes. Understand what is happening with a loved one. You will feel much more upbeat than you have in quite some time. Tonight: Listen to a friend’s suggestion.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Postpone meetings unless they deal with financial matters. Stay in that realm, and you will see the benefits quickly. A mouthy friend could have some remarkable suggestions. You need to get past your initial reaction in order to hear them. Tonight: Run some errands on the way home.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Refuse to blame others for a hassle. A friend will play into a decision where you could be waffling. Try to get as much done as possible. Do not hesitate to ask for more information. Once you start talking, you could have difficulty staying mum. Tonight: Let spontaneity rule.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Slow down, and get to the basics of a problem. You might not be sure how to handle what you are hearing. Just make sure you get all the facts before making a decision. If need be, speak to an expert. You could get more information than you can handle. Tonight: Get some R and R.
