Horoscope for April 10, 2018


Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Tread carefully because as the day wears on, you are tempted to get in a power trip about something, especially with a parent or an authority figure. Well, you know how you are when someone challenges you. You’re always ready to throw down the gauntlet!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Something going on behind the scenes is a bit off. Maybe you can feel it? It’s as if there is someone out there who is going to challenge you or try to trip you up. This could relate to the church or the law or travel plans that you might have. It’s curious, but it’s there.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Be cooperative with friends and members of groups today. Don’t get hung up with disputes about shared property or funding or how a specific amount of money should be allocated or spent. These disputes will only get worse. Don’t even go there.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Be careful because by the end of today, you might thinking you’re an extra in the Spencer Tracy film “Bad Day at Black Rock.” Avoid a confrontation or showdown with an authority figure because you need this like you need another hole in your head. Do not go looking for trouble. Play nice with people.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Power struggles that are essentially about ideals or something to do with politics, race or religion might come up today, especially late in the day. Don’t waste your breath. These are issues where people are firmly committed. Lighten up.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Disputes about inheritances, shared property or differing values might arise today. Ideally, you should have this discussion on a day when people are ready to listen. All parties need to have an open mind and be receptive. Today is not the case. Quite the opposite.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Aggressive discussions with partners and close friends could be distressing. Therefore, avoid this kind of discussion. After all, you can choose what you want to talk about. Or you can choose who you want to talk to. Do not get embroiled in a power struggle with someone today.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

For some reason, your work will be a challenge. Equipment at work might break down. Likewise you might have difficulty dealing with pets. You might even face some health challenges today. Don’t push the river. Easy does it. Deal with things one at a time.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Parents will have to be patient with kids today. And likewise, romantic partners will have to be patient with each other as well. Competitive sports will be fierce, aggressive and pugnacious. Don’t get hurt. If you work in the entertainment world, don’t be a diva — not today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be respectful and courteous with family members today, especially parents and elders in the family. Arguments might erupt. But why ruin the family harmony? When this happens, everyone suffers. Just agree to disagree. Avoid heavy discussions.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Avoid arguments with others today. It’s easy to get sucked into a power play without realizing what’s happening. Someone might demand that you account for yourself or something like that. (Yikes.) Avoid people who want to abuse their power or be really pushy.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Something you own might be broken today. On the other hand, you might repair something you own or restore it to its original state. (Probably to do this you have to strip it down to the basics.) Avoid power struggles with friends and groups. Who needs it?

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Daisy Ridley (1992) shares your birthday today. You are goal-oriented and organized. You plan; you make lists. You’re kindhearted. You believe in cause and effect. This year it’s time to get a better understanding of who you are. Explore meditation, yoga or other disciplines. This is also a year of teaching and learning. What you learn this year will be crucial for your progress and success next year.
