HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, April 25, 2012: You often are more serious than you need to be. On the other hand, you make good choices. Tap into your innate intuitive ability to help guide you. If single, your charisma flashes a “come hither” message. If attached, the two of you need to plan frequent vacations close to home, but without all the people you interact with on a daily basis. Cancer understands you better than you realize. A baby born today has a sun in Taurus and a moon in Gemini if born before 10:42 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Cancer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Ask questions, even if you already believe you know the answers – you could be surprised by what comes up.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Be aware of what you have to offer, and do not minimize those gifts. Someone you respect presents a new idea. Fatigue with the status quo could be wearing you down.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • You are all smiles. The unexpected occurs with a child or loved one. This unpredictable energy also could come out in a creative endeavor.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Sometimes by backing out you’ll gain a new perspective. Try not to play into someone’s controlling ways.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Zero in on what you want with little fear as to what the reaction could be, and unexpected benefits might result.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You resent being manipulated. You’ll try to communicate this attitude to controlling people but might not always succeed.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Keep reaching out for someone you cannot seem to get ahold of. This person might not be directing this estrangement toward you; he or she simply needs space.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Deal directly with key people who could have a great deal of impact on your life. Sometimes passing on a message might not be enough.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Others continue to take the first step. Start using the word “no” when you do not want to go along with an idea. Your sense of humor has an edge to it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Rethink a decision. You might be insecure and looking to become more demanding or controlling. Your way of dealing with issues might be pushing others away right now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Be willing to explore different paths to achieve your goals. Manipulation will not work, as you’ll only gain someone’s resentment.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • You are coming from a good place; however, others simply aren’t in the mood to listen. Don’t keep pushing.
