HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, April 8, 2012: This year you enjoy relating closely to an individual at work or in your personal life. When events do not permit this closeness, you will find situations and people to be superficial. If single, you alternate between close encounters and alienation. If attached, the two of you love being close. You also enjoy mini-vacations together. Scorpio wants it his or her way. A baby born today has a Sun in Aries and a Moon in Scorpio.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Realign your thinking, and agreement between you and another person becomes possible. Do not underestimate your competitiveness.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You are strong-willed, like a Bull. Others might figuratively put their hands on their hips as they try to get away from this mindset. See the humor in this situation, and flex.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • You see a power play, the manipulation and the end results. At the present point, say little, but feel free to derail the games that others seem to be playing.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You cannot explain your fondness for life. You seem almost childlike, as you look at a flower, a loved one or whatever is in front of you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Stay settled, and do not get into the fray. Be direct with a friend you see every day. He or she may want this feedback.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You might not want to admit that how you phrase a wish could determine whether it will be granted. Others might be into their control games.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • Be aware of the costs of heading in a certain direction. You could find a family member vested in doing his or her thing. Try to help this person lighten up.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • You work well with someone’s challenges. You are not threatened by this person. You’ll find that communication is flowing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Take time just for you, especially if you haven’t recently. A close friend wants you to join him or her. Be flattered by this person’s manipulation, and say “yes.”
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • If you opt to go to a ballgame, you can run, cheer and boo. Choose a stress-buster that allows you to hang with favorite friends or loved ones.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • While others gleefully get into their Sunday, you’ll go off to handle a responsibility. The real question is: Can you infuse some lightness and humor into this situation?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Keep reaching out for more information or a different perspective. You might have a unique style of opening up to a new vision. Some of you might hop in your car for a drive.
