SHARE Horoscope for Friday, April 17, 2020

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 9:15 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Aquarius into Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You love to work with your hands and try any new discipline to puncture the mystique of how it is done. Today is an excellent day to push the boundaries of your imagination and creative talents — writing, drawing, welding, sculpting, sewing — you name it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you will find it easy to get in touch with your inner world, which might make you feel more content. Perhaps you will have a better appreciation of your situation, which, despite its frustrations, is still so fortunate in global terms. So say we all.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you appreciate being in touch with others — friends and groups in social media or in hailing distance from your balcony. However you connect with others, you will feel genuine affection for them (whether you tell them or not).

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a favorable day to talk to parents, bosses and VIPs if you want to keep things well-oiled and friendly. However, if you’re making a pitch or you want to volunteer for something — check the moon alert. Don’t volunteer for anything during a moon alert.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

In times not so long ago, you would have enjoyed getting out and traveling today. Now you must look for other ways to expand your horizons. Use books, film, the Internet and talking to people from other cultures to learn something new that excites you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

With the exception of the time during the moon alert, this is a good day to discuss insurance issues, shared property, wills, estates and anything you own jointly with others. The reason for this is people will be reasonable and fair-minded.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is the ideal day to tell a partner or close friend how much they mean to you. (People love to hear this!) And yet, too often, we never express our affection for others. It’s important for someone to know that they mean something to you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Good news related to your health will please you today. Similarly, something pleasant related to a pet will lift your day. Those of you who are working at home, or on the front lines, will find coworkers to be cooperative and supportive.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a creative day! Not only are you in touch with your creative talents, you will enjoy a chance to express this side of yourself. Even if you sit down with your kids with crayons and a coloring book — you’ll enjoy it. (As kids we were ALL creative — what ever happened?)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is an excellent day for family discussions, because people will be more inclined to show their affection for each other. They might offer help and support. Note: If you are going to volunteer for anything, don’t do it during the moon alert.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You still have lots of energy because fiery Mars is in your sign, and today, your ability to sweet-talk to others is excellent. Oh yes, you will be in the right place, at the right time, saying the right thing, to the right person. (The right place for most of us is right at home.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might come up with some excellent money-making ideas. And because you are attracted to beautiful things, you might shop online to buy something pretty for yourself or loved ones. Note: Don’t shop during the moon alert.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Jennifer Garner (1972) shares your birthday. You are confident and responsible, and you require a loving partner. Because this is a year of teaching and learning, you will learn something that sets you in a new direction, which could be crucial for your success next year. Why not explore meditation, yoga or any discipline that will help you to get a better understanding of who you are? Explore something new.
