Georgia Nicols weekly horoscopes for April 19

SHARE Georgia Nicols weekly horoscopes for April 19

All Signs

On Monday, the Sun moves into Taurus to stay for four weeks. Taurus has domain over many things, and one of them is money. For example, many bankers are Taurus. So who is surprised that April is the month so many of us are thinking about money and taxes? It goes with the territory. Taurus is also connected with green parks and farms, which is why Taurus people love to hike, walk and own mortgage-free land. They are the most sensuous and tactile of all the signs. They love their creature comforts and are excellent cooks, gourmets and sommeliers. (A chef is just a cook who swears in French.) This is why, in the coming month, we will focus on money, food and wealth. Ah yes, money talks but it doesn’t make sense — not when it’s cheaper than fuel.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

“Show me the money!” There’s no question that your thoughts are about cash flow, wealth, assets, savings and debt. Not only does the Sun highlight your earnings and preoccupation with money in the next few weeks, both Mercury and Mars are also traveling through your House of Money. Ka-ching! You will be full of money-making ideas and ready to take a hands-on approach to earning money. Because Mars indicates activity with your cash flow, you will also take a hands-on approach to spending money as well! But at a deeper level, you will also wonder what really matters in life? Is it money or a good night’s sleep?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

It’s all about you, dear Taurus because the Sun, Mercury and Mars are now in your sign. This means you’re facing a powerful month ahead where you have the upper hand, and an advantage in all your negotiations. Furthermore, you will attract important people to you and favorable circumstances. This is not to be sneezed at! Use this to your advantage. Mercury will help you communicate; in fact, Mercury makes you keen to talk to others. Mars pumps your energy, which is why physical sports will be a wise outlet in case you get too jazzed. In the next few weeks, you will enjoy shopping for beautiful things. Because you are improving your home this year, no doubt, you will buy something special for your digs.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Because your birthday is just one month away, this means your personal year is coming to an end. Do yourself a favor and set aside some time this month to think about what you want your new year to be all about. How do you want it to be different from last year? Studies show that when we define our goals and give them deadlines, the odds of our reaching these goals increase. Why not test this? Give yourself some goals for the next year. I know someone who sets one year, two year and five year goals every January. Over the years, she observed that she always meet her two-year goals. Curious. This month is a great time to buy wardrobe items.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re looking at a popular month ahead, so plan to enjoy yourself. Accept all invitations and extend a few yourself. Join clubs, and associations because you feel competitive and energetic. Expect to hang out with younger people and have fun. Please note: All this interaction with others will benefit you. This means that it is good for you to interact with others, not just for pleasure, but also because these associations will help you professionally, personally and possibly, physically, in a practical way. Some of you might dabble in a secret love affair. One thing is certain: All of you will continue to look for ways to boost your income, because this is in store for you. Ka-ching!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is the only time all year that the Sun is at the top of your chart, acting like a spotlight on you, which makes others notice you more than usual. You will be high viz. in the month ahead! Furthermore, since this light is flattering, people not only notice you more, they admire you. This is why someone will ask you to take on increased responsibilities. Say yes because you won’t have to do anything special to dazzle them. (Good lighting is everything.) Mars will keep your ambition aroused, and Mercury will make it easy to talk to people in authority. Meanwhile, fair Venus promotes warm friendships with others. Not too shabby.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

It’s time for a change of scenery! Look for ways to travel or enjoy weekend getaways in the month ahead to broaden your horizons and see new sights, new people and new places. (Grab a fish taco in Tofino, lunch at the Oyster Bar, on Chuckanut Drive in Washington.) Go someplace that gives you a thrill. Others will love to take a course or start a new study. Interactions with people from another country or a different culture will fascinate you. Meanwhile, some of you will develop a crush on your boss or an authority figure. Someone will ask for your creative input on design, layout, furniture arrangement — whatever. It’s an interesting month!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Travel for pleasure intrigues you, which is why you’re checking hotel rates and deals at resorts. This same astrological influence can bring you good fortune dealing with publishing, the media, medicine and the law. However, you also want to turn over a new leaf. “I want to be the best I can be!” And why not — after all, you never again will be as young as you are today. Carpe Diem! (That’s Latin for “Is this hotdog beef?”) Along with your desire for self-improvement, you will be sexually aroused. (The two often go hand-in-hand.) Sexy relationships will be busy, physical and talkative. Everything is black and white in the next few weeks — no shades of gray.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The Sun, Mercury and fiery Mars all oppose your sign now, which makes you focus on partnerships and relationships. Mercury makes you eager to talk to others, especially about the relationship, and Mars makes you impatient with others because they seem to be so annoying. (Which, of course, they are.) This applies to professional partnerships as well as marriages and intimate relationships. This is your major focus in the next month. Fortunately, fair Venus wants to ameliorate any discord by promoting sweet, affectionate intimacy. Venus will also bring you gifts, goodies and favors from others — so keep your pockets open.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

It’s time to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Make a To Do list for the month ahead. But first, do yourself a favor and get the right equipment so you can do an excellent job. This might include cleaning supplies, paint, shelving, labels, file folders or whatever it is you need. Your objective is to get better organized both at work and at home. Naturally, because you are on this improvement kick, it will extend into your personal life and you will want to do things to improve your health. This is a good time to join a gym, adopt a new eating regimen or try an exercise schedule. You love the outdoors, so any kind of outdoor activity will be the ticket for you. Woof, woof!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The next four to six weeks will be the most playful time of the year for you. Grab every opportunity to party, enjoy the company of others and have fun. In particular, you will enjoy the arts — musical performances, the theater, movies and perhaps improv classes or theater sports. For that matter, all sports events will be a major draw for you now. It’s the playoffs! Enjoy playful activities with children, as well. Romance and love affairs are a major focus at this time as well. Physical love-making will be hot because sex will be your form of self-expression. Yes, it’s a time of personal self-gratification, pleasure and good times!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Now your attention turns to home and family for the month ahead. Family meetings and discussions will be significant. Many of you will do home repairs or home renovations because there will be increased chaos and activity where you live, that’s for sure. Visiting guests could be part of the insanity. Although you want more privacy and a chance to cocoon, you might not get it. (Good luck.) On the upside, there is a promise of fun, entertainment and lots of good times. Love affairs and playful times with children will flourish. Sports activities will appeal. This is also a creative time for you. Look for ways to express yourself through some creative activity.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The pace of your days will accelerate in the month ahead because you are busy with short trips, errands, discussions with everyone and increased reading and writing. You’re on the go and loving it! This is a great time for intellectual activity and conversations with others because you have a lot to say. However, because you identify strongly with your beliefs, be careful about arguments. If others disagree with you, this is not necessarily a personal affront. (Hello?) Instead, use this verbal energy to sell, convince and persuade others with honey. This will be a successful time for those of you who do sell, market, teach and act and, of course, write. Some people have a way with words — some people not have way.
