Horoscope for April 27, 2018


Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You might be at odds with partners, friends, bosses, parents and authority figures. This is a much milder day than yesterday. Just go with the flow. Patience and courtesy will cover most challenges that you meet today. Easy does it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might encounter some challenges at work today, especially related to travel or dealing with foreign countries or other cultures. It’s not big stuff. It simply means you have to be aware and stay calm and professional, which is easy for you to do.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today the Moon is opposite your ruler Mercury, which makes you restless. It’s not a big deal but, yes, your teeth are itchy. You might be too concerned with trivialities. You might even have digestive problems. Nevertheless, these challenges are small potatoes.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Exchanges with parents, bosses, partners and close friends are a tad dicey today. But it’s not a big deal. People are sensitive but then, so are you. In fact, you are a very sensitive person. (A lot of people don’t know this.) If something is unpleasant, walk the other direction.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Someone might discourage you today. Or worse, they might criticize you. (Leos hate criticism.) Don’t take this personally because today the Moon is at odds with Saturn and opposite Mercury, which means many relationships between many people are a tad strained.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might be concerned about money, shared property, inheritances or how to divide the cost of a social situation, a vacation, or expenses related to kids. Something does not flow easily today and it’s probably connected to money. But hey, it’s minor. You can handle this.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The Moon is in your sign today, which makes you a bit more emotional. But it also makes you luckier! Admittedly, it is at odds with Mercury and Saturn, which can be confusing. You might feel restless. It’s hard to please people today. Keep a low profile.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might encounter a few stresses dealing with work colleagues today. Someone might be critical or demanding. Don’t let this get you down because to varying degrees, everyone feels edgy today. Things are mildly crunchy but you can turn them around. Meet someone for Happy Hour.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Relations with a female acquaintance or perhaps a member of a group might require some finesse and diplomacy on your part. (Especially if you’re discussing money, possessions or club funds.) Romantic stress might also arise but it’s mild. Don’t take things personally.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be an example for others to follow at home or within your family today because people are off their game and inclined to be critical or not focused. They need a shining example — and that example can be you! Demonstrate grace under pressure. Show them how to take a few speed bumps with class.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a mildly argumentative day. Be aware of this so that you can avoid entanglements with siblings, daily contacts and relatives. Also be aware that people are mildly stressed today. It’s minor, but it’s there. This means you have to cut others some slack.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today you might have some financial concerns. Someone older or more experienced might be critical of your style of spending. (Dontcha love it?) Or you may feel duties and obligations require more money then you have. Or you’re worried about your budget. (You have a budget?) Relax.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Sally Hawkins (1976) shares your birthday today. You are intelligent, reserved and ready to express your opinions. You are always supportive and compassionate to those in need. You love music and art. This year is about personal responsibilities, family and service to others. Take care of yourself so you can help others. Explore the arts. Enroll in a class. Nurture relationships you value. Personalize your home with memories of these relationships.
