FOR RELEASE: TUESDAY, APRIL 17, 2012
If you can turn this day into an extremely productive one, consider yourself a master of focus and a wizard of productivity. The void-of-course Pisces moon will fight you every step of the way, insisting that imagination is more important than action and that dreams are crucial to progress. She's right, but only to a point.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone is defending passionately an argument they know can be defeated. Don't take the bait. This is a tricky game, and it's not worth your time to participate in it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do you constantly edit yourself? It gets exhausting after a while, doesn't it? That's why it's such a tremendous relief to be around people who completely accept you for who you are.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The day features some silliness and strange entertainment. Just because someone is weird doesn't mean they won't make a stellar friend.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Even games that are usually fun can turn quite dull if you know you're going to win. Today, love will be a game, too. It will be important to get plenty of challenge into your personal life.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You stay on track by thinking in rather black-and-white terms. Each decision you make brings you either closer or farther away from your goals. With every move, you'll ask yourself, "Which is it?"
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll do as you intend to do. The success or failure of your actions is irrelevant. What's important is that you follow through, honoring your strong convictions. Action increases your confidence.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll use language in a way that expands, guides and directs people's actions and feelings. You'll say "I love you" and send a person's mood to the highest stars.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As you go about your day comparing A to B, note that not everything should be compared. Because two things are next to each other doesn't mean there's a logical intrinsic relationship between those two things.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone is trying to sell you, and you'll feel the squeeze. The thing about marketers is that if they can't identify a need, they manufacture a demand.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Strive for wide-eyed awareness. If your eyes are closed, you can fall upon the very thing you've been searching for and not see it. You'll pinch yourself metaphorically to make sure that all of your senses are awake and ready.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A situation is not what you thought it would be. You may let go of all of your hard preparation in favor of being present with what the moment needs. You can do this because you are truly confident in your abilities.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 17). This year you'll be energized by the same challenges that used to stop you in your tracks. You'll employ new skills, and your game just keeps improving. You'll focus on your loved ones' needs through the next six weeks, connecting with them on deep levels. Enjoyable work and romantic moments fill your summer. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 10, 40, 39 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I am a Virgo born under the year of the Earth Snake on Sept. 1, 1989. I'm going through one of the hardest episodes in my life: my first heartbreak. I'm trying to move on, but I find it hard to do. Please help me. I want to know whether I should really let go or wait for my lost love. Is there still a future for us?"
I'm sorry for your pain, and I know it's intense. With your Mercury and Venus in Libra, the sign of partnership, I'll bet it feels like your love is truly your "other half," and now half of you is missing. I ache that you have to go through this, but it's not in vain. Until your heart has been broken, you never really know how much you can love. An unbroken heart stays small and tight. Heartbreak lets the light in, and the spiritual scar tissue that forms is both strong and elastic, allowing you to give a bigger love the next time and the next. So let go. You will live, and you will love again. Instead of spending your energy trying to get him back, get yourself back. Take extremely good care of yourself, and do the things that make you feel most like you. The future can't happen until you've healed.
