HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, April 18, 2012: This year you are an emotional pendulum, swinging from moody to introverted and from emotional to dynamic. Try both sides of your personality this year. If single, you attract impulsive and spontaneous people. If attached, the two of you become more carefree than you were before you met each other. You infuse your relationship with a wild excitement. Another Aries might be very different, but have a similar intensity. A baby born today has a sun in Aries and a moon in Pisces if born before 8:59 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Aries.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • How you feel when you wake up and how you feel by noon could be very different. You sense that you are in a whirlwind of emotions,
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Say less and listen more. You cannot help but gain understanding through a conversation. You suddenly might understand why someone decided to head in a particular direction.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Your friendship means a lot to others. You also have a lot of responsibilities. Be realistic – you can spread yourself only so thin, even as energetic as you are.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • You are on top of your game. Listen to news from a boss or older friend with a grain of salt. Everything could reverse itself before the end of the day.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • Detach, and you’ll seem far more supportive to others, as there is less of a tendency to trigger a reaction.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Togetherness comes from letting go of your view of what should be. Try to see life from a different perspective. Ask questions.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Defer to others; listen to their views. You are likely to have an animated debate. The unexpected runs riot in the best-laid plans, especially involving a partner.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Be aware of what is happening behind the scenes. Know what you want from a situation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • Infuse whatever situation you are in with creativity and perspective. Others will jump on the bandwagon with you as they see the wisdom of your ways.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Sometimes you need to stop and center yourself. Part of the reason that this process seems necessary is that you are changing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Keep conversations moving. You can facilitate a friendship or agreement just by employing your innate skills. Your perceptions might be changing during this process.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Listen to news carefully. Be aware of what is being shared by someone whose financial wisdom you respect. A meeting could be provocative.
