If Your Birthday Is April 8

Actresses Patricia Arquette (1968) and Robin Wright (1966) share your birthday. You have humanitarian and altruistic values. You want to make the world a better place and help those who are less fortunate. You are unselfish and giving. This year your success lies with others. Because people will benefit you, make friends and join clubs and organizations. Help others because you will also be helping yourself.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is an exciting, fast-paced day! You feel clever, bright and on top of things. Because you’re full of clever ideas, you’re juggling people and events all at once. Remember to take a breath. If driving, walking and jogging — keep your eyes open. Expect the unexpected.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a restless day for you because you’re secretly excited about something. Perhaps you’re hatching great plans behind the scenes? Admittedly, this is a fast-paced week with lots of stuff going off in different directions. Hey — with both Venus and Mars in your sign — you can handle this.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A friend or a member of a group might throw you a curveball. However, you might like it. Perhaps it’s a clever idea and you want to run with it? Alternatively, it might be something you’re not keen on. Fortunately, you are full of bright, clever ideas as well! This is not a routine day.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

In discussions with authority figures, avoid jumping to conclusions. Ideas are flying fast and furious, and there’s no sense in ending up with egg on your face. Someone might surprise you with their suggestion, or in turn, you might have an original idea to offer?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Travel plans might fall in your lap. Or travel plans that were previously arranged might be canceled. When it comes to anything to do with travel, publishing, the media, medicine and the law — expect a sudden change because today is a crapshoot.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Make friends with your bank account so that you know what’s happening. Previous arrangements about shared property, inheritances, taxes and debt might suddenly change. Something unexpected will require your attention — so be on your game.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might encounter someone unusual. Or perhaps, a friend or partner will do something that surprises you. They might want more space in the relationship. Possibly, you are the one who wants more space? Stay light on your feet so you can navigate this day with style and major coolness.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today can unfold in several ways. On one hand, you might be full of clever, original ideas and absolutely amaze everyone. On the other hand (you have different fingers) your work routine might be interrupted by computer crashes, cancelled meetings and staff shortages. Ouch. Be aware.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today is full of wonderful, creative possibilities because you’re pumped with clever, original ideas. However, this same influence can bring surprising results to sports, including accidents, and it can also be an accident-prone day for your kids. Be vigilant and careful.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Something to do with home and family will be a bit crazy. Your home routine will be speedy, as will family members. You might have a brilliant idea about how to fix something — or something might suddenly break. Aaagghh! Someone unexpected will knock on your door.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your thinking is sped up. You’re excited and full of original ideas. Puzzles and mysteries will fascinate you. However, avoid jumping to conclusions. Nevertheless, don’t be afraid to experiment with new ideas, but don’t be seduced by them either, just because they’re new.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’re full of bright, original money-making ideas, which is great. However, today is also an unpredictable day when it comes to your finances and cash flow, so keep your eyes peeled. You might find money; you might lose money. Ditto for your possessions.
