Horoscope for April 25, 2018


Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your critical faculties are sharp today and you want to get a lot done. However, it will not be easy communicating to others, especially bosses, parents and VIPs. This includes the police. You might put a negative spin on things. Easy does it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

It’s easy to see the dark side of life today because for many, their glass is half empty. (Yes, this is the same glass that is half full.) This means that there is a tendency to take a gloomy point of view of things and think that life is worse that it is.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Someone older or more experienced might discourage you today, or perhaps they are critical of you in some way? (Well, you need this like a fish needs a bicycle.) Don’t take this personally. Obviously, avoid these discussions if you can.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a poor day to make your pitch to a boss or parent. Do not choose today to ask for approval or permission. If you do, their response will be, “Talk to the hand.” In truth, everyone is inclined to be critical and a bit negative today. Timing is everything. Choose another day.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Avoid controversial subjects like politics, race or religion because they will deteriorate into negative, nasty discussions. Nobody needs this. Basically, people are negative thinking today. Instead, use this energy to study hard because your mind is sharp today.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Discussions about how to divide or share something today might disappoint you. People are not generous. Everyone is inclined to see the dark side of life today, which makes them want to hold onto everything. Tomorrow is a better day for these kind of exchanges.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Relations with a close friend or partner are difficult today because people are depressed, pessimistic and certainly critical! Who needs to be criticized? Don’t take anything personally. Everyone feels a bit lonely or cut off today or worried. Is it spores in the air?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Many people might be depressed or a bit negative today. However, you can use this energy to work hard because your mind is very sharp and critical. Focus on details. Make tough decisions, but don’t be so tough you forget to be kind because kindness is the most important thing.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Children might be an increased responsibility today. Social occasions might feel like an obligation or just too much work. Romantic relationships will also be strained or depressed. (Yikes!) Fear not — this is just a passing dark cloud on your horizon. Only for today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Family discussions might be strained today because it’s tough dealing with parents and authority figures at home. Or the landlord. If you can avoid these encounters, do so. This is a temporary glitch. Things are fine.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might worry too much today or fall into a phase of negative thinking. You might be critical of others or someone might be critical of you. Look for an opportunity to practice a kindness — a small gesture — or maybe something big, because this will immediately make you feel better.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your finances might look bad today. Too much month left at the end of the money! Actually, a lot of people feel this way today. They feel broke, unloved, insecure and a bit uneasy. “I’m navel lint!” This feeling will be gone by tomorrow. Whew!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Al Pacino (1940) shares your birthday today. You are energetic and dynamic and will face any challenge. You work hard to succeed and achieve your goals. This is the year to simplify your life and build solid foundations. Channel your energy in one direction. Exercise is important. Take up yoga, martial arts or jogging — any physical discipline to help ground you. Hard work and effort will pay off this year!
