Horoscopes for April 5

  • Apr. 5, 2018 1:30 a.m.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year your impulsiveness and your creative ideas mix well together. Whenever you are spontaneous, great ideas seem to come forward. Others enjoy your energy and enthusiasm.

If you are single, you attract admirers and friends who sometimes want more than just friendship. You must make the call, as only you know what type of relationship you desire. If you are attached, the two of you have different approaches to life. Once you make the necessary adjustments, your bond becomes more in sync with your feelings. SAGITTARIUS encourages you to take risks.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You know how to handle a difficult controversy. You have a tendency to go overboard when making a point. Listen carefully to what is happening with a loved one. This person is telling you a lot more than you might realize. Tonight: Suggest a new type of pastime.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Communication between you and an associate could fall flat, partially because of a misunderstanding. Trying to straighten out a matter that both parties care a lot about might be more complicated than you originally had thought. Be sincere and open. Tonight: Out late.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Defer to someone whom you feel has more control than you do. This person would like to make an idea and situation work, and he or she won’t work against you in any way. Remain sure of yourself, and be willing to connect on a deeper level. Tonight: Flow with the moment.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Stay on top of a situation. Remain focused on the issue at hand, and use your imagination to find a workable solution. Others might not think your idea is as good as you believe it to be, but you will want to try it out anyway. Tonight: Make sure you include some exercise.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Rethink a personal matter more thoroughly. You have gotten a lot of feedback from a loved one. Though you might not agree with this person, you do value his or her feedback. A visit from a relative could be difficult to handle, as so much is going on. Tonight: Let it all hang out.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A certain situation could open you up to more and more positive changes. You have chosen to go in a specific direction, and you will continue on that same path. Buy a loved one a special gift, and trust that he or she will appreciate it. Tonight: Your home is your castle.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Stay more tuned in to what is happening around you. Your ability to communicate and work through an issue emerges, encouraging you to head down a new path. Understand that a friend might not have an accurate perception of a situation. Tonight: Swap stories with a pal.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your instincts will settle in once you make sure that you are on the right path. You have had a difficult time pursuing a long-desired goal in the past, but it appears to be coming true now. You might be making this an either-or situation, but it isn’t. Tonight: Be a bit mellow.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You could be in a position where you might want or need to change. You seem to have inadvertently created some pressure for a family member. You will discover the importance of continuing as you have been in order to resist a shake-up. Tonight: A force to be dealt with.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The tension you are feeling keeps mounting, to the point that you must take action. Your sense of discipline and morality prevents you from running with a seemingly perfect idea. If you let go and take a leap of faith, you will feel much better. Tonight: Talk less, and listen more.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Understanding what is necessary might be key to allowing a friendship to evolve. Knowing when to let go and enjoy what is happening will be critical to making life more enjoyable. Use caution with your funds so as to avoid overspending. Tonight: Hang out with friends.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Zero in on what is important. You might feel slightly burdened by a responsibility. You will wonder what is happening, but could have difficulty understanding the complexity of the situation. You don’t seem to see events and people clearly right now. Tonight: Happy at home.
