SHARE Horoscope for Thursday, April 14, 2022

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 1 to 4 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Virgo into Libra.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Guard against a tendency to be nitpicking, especially at work. Or you might be this way when dealing with a pet or with issues related to your health. Instead, decide to go with the flow and let it be. Sometimes perfection is overrated.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This can be a creative, fun-loving day unless you decide to fine-tune everything to a point where you have taken the joy out of something. Don’t do this. Let the chips fall where they may because in all likelihood, things will turn out just fine. Relax.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

In order to keep the peace at home, or when talking to family members, your best option is to go along to get along. Of course, with your fast-moving mind, you see better options. But maybe others don’t want to hear of these possibilities. Keep it simple.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

When talking to others, you might insist on something being correct, perhaps even correcting someone’s grammar? (People love that.) Keep the spirit and general intent of what someone means in mind and don’t get hung up with the details.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

People are never casual about money; and even though you are a very generous sign, you’re not casual about money, either. However, if you become a stickler today about financial matters or perhaps something that you own, someone else might be annoyed. It happens.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be patient talking to partners and close friends today because your penchant for getting things correct and observing little errors or seeing “what’s wrong with this picture” might hurt someone close to you. Relationships with others will be much better if you cut them some slack. Ya think?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

More than any other sign, you are affected by your surroundings. Lighting, colors, smells — they affect you. Today you might feel a bit uncomfortable or critical about something that is bothering you. This might be external; it might be internal. Fortunately, it’s brief. Relax.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It’s easy to be critical of others, not only our enemies but also our friends. Naturally, this means we are looking at the world with a “critical eye,” which means we’re coming from a point of criticism. It’s a choice. The flip side is you could come from a point of admiration. Feels better!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today you might feel that someone is raining on your parade, especially someone in a position of authority like the police, a boss, a parent or a teacher. Bummer. This can definitely dampen things. However, don’t let this affect you. It’s just for today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might be discouraged by the news today or something in the media. Some of you will also be discouraged because a planned trip seems to be threatened or impossible. This can be disappointing. After the full moon on Saturday, things might change.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Financial matters and issues related to shared property, inheritances, taxes and debt might be discouraging today. Things are not the way you hoped they would be. Relax. Join the club — we number millions. In fact, your finances will improve!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Relations with partners and close friends might be stiff today because one of you is critical of the other. Well, if one is critical, then the other will be critical, creating a vicious cycle. The secret is this cycle is easily broken by offering a complement. Voila!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Peter Capaldi (1958) shares your birthday. You are positive, courageous and ready to take the bull by the horns. Nevertheless, you are also gracious and charming and playful. You have a strong spiritual side. This year is about service to others, taking good care of yourself, and your responsibilities to family. You might want to explore the arts or the possibility of a makeover.
