SHARE Horoscope for Friday, April 9, 2021

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 6:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Pisces into Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Don’t try to persuade others to agree with you today because your efforts will be half-hearted. (You might not even believe your own words.) That’s because there’s a discouraging element out there that affects everyone. It’s an Eeyore day that comes around every six months.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a poor day for important financial decisions because you might have no faith in your decision or whatever you’re dealing with. The thing to know is that everyone feels this way in varying degrees. (It must be the spores in the air.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Mars in your sign is at odds with fuzzy Neptune, which is like throwing water on fire. You might question yourself and what you’re doing. You might even want to give up. Even if you stay in bed, don’t give up. Things will change.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a classic day for recriminations, guilt and self-doubt. You might feel you’re facing the consequences of past actions and they’re overwhelming. That’s why there’s a tendency to cave in. Or hide. Or lie. This feeling will be gone soon. Save your energy.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a poor day to negotiate a financial deal with a friend or a group. You will doubt your own wisdom. You might feel you don’t have the energy that it takes to do whatever needs to be done. Don’t be hard on yourself. Relax. This discouragement will fade.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

It might be difficult dealing with bosses, parents, teachers and the police today because you’re facing the consequences of a bad choice. But hey, this is a temporary situation. Remember: Hope is the feeling you have that the feeling you have isn’t permanent.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Issues related to higher education, publishing, the media, politics or religion are confusing. It feels like the bottom dropped out of everything. You feel uncertain about what’s going to happen next. Fear not because everyone is uptight today. Relax.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might be disappointed in your fair share of something. You might be disappointed you didn’t get the backing or the money or the support that you hope you would. There are many reasons to feel discouraged, today but all of them are fleeting and temporary. You’re fine.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your closest relationships might be a source of disappointment today. You feel misunderstood or let down. You might be backed into a corner and tempted to be deceitful or hide something. Hey — your own integrity is more important. Remember that.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re discouraged. You’re disappointed in results or the lack of support you get or even the misdirection? Your health might be flagging right now as well. Take it easy. Relax. This is a fleeting dark cloud on your horizon.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Something to do with money, assets, your kids or perhaps a creative project could be disappointing today. Don’t focus on your disappointment. Instead, focus on your reality. Your reality is that you have divine protection this year because lucky Jupiter is in your sign. (Drinks are on you.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

When you get discouraged, you feel victimized. Today you might feel you have no energy to do what you need to do. You might want to give in. You might not want to get out of bed? Relax, because many people feel this way today. The thing to know is it’s temporary.

If Your Birthday Is Today

You are cleaning up things and clearing the way for a new way of doing things.
