HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, April 20, 2012: This year you discover your inner reclusive side. Others might express their worry or be taken aback. Respond openly to their inquiries, as much as you can. If single, you could meet someone who is emotionally unavailable. Be careful before you plunge into a new relationship. If attached, the two of you will spend a lot of time together and enjoy it. Make sure you get enough R and R. A fellow Taurus can be pushy! A baby born today has a sun and moon in Aries if born before 9:05 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Taurus.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You keep putting your best foot forward, but someone continues to step on it. Be more in touch with how much you offer and give.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Keep an even pace; take a power nap if need be. A New Moon in your sign promises a new beginning.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • You have been thinking through some life decisions, even if you haven’t necessarily wanted to. You might be on the verge of making them a reality.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Get past someone’s demand, or handle a responsibility. By midafternoon, you’ll tend to be more gregarious.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Quickly make calls, reach out for others and get to the basis of an issue without coloring the story by personal bias.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Deal with calls and people individually. You could be unusually uptight about a situation and allow it to color your day. Pull back to see if this is the case.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • Try to curb a tendency to self-sabotage. You have been unusually negative or touchy lately.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Your effort to preserve a situation might backfire. You cannot fight change – not emotionally, personally or professionally.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Listen to your inner voice. You sense that you might want to get out the door or start the weekend early. Listen to a child or loved one.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Tension builds and causes a problem when you interact with authority figures. Know when to pull back and opt for a less public stance.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Keep communication flowing, even if you don’t exactly understand what is happening. In your mind, you sense that someone is holding back.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Someone could be asking for what you cannot give. This person might not understand why you refuse to go along with his or her request.
