Daily Horoscopes for April 18th

 

General Daily Horoscope

 

We are pushed to emotional extremes with the Moon’s entry into passionate Scorpio at 2:18 am EDT. However, an ongoing tug-of-war between our personal needs and anyone who stands in our way may reach a turning point today. The tension grows to a crescendo as impulsive Mars opposes restrictive Saturn, demanding that we find balance prior to continuing our journey. Instead of struggling to power forward, we must reconsider less aggressive options.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may attempt to take a shortcut today, hoping that no one will notice. Luckily, you are clever enough to fool others with your scheme, but only for a little while. Unfortunately, outmaneuvering reality by trying to control the situation won’t work for you now. A smarter approach would be to temper your over-the-top story with a healthy dose of pragmatism before you end up looking foolish.

 

 

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You may not be feeling overly optimistic today, but it’s a smart strategy to fake an air of confidence anyway. You could receive recognition now for your ability to see the potential in a situation and to rally others to your cause. But don’t exaggerate your ideas, or you’ll lose support when it becomes obvious that you cannot fulfill all your big promises. It’s more advantageous now to offer less and deliver more than anyone expects.

 

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

If you have been carried away recently by your own grand ideas, your optimism could be a problem. You’re able to sell blue sky and rainbows to others, even if they actually remain out of reach. Unfortunately, your hard work won’t be enough now to make all your dreams come true. Instead of creating impossible expectations, just quietly apply yourself the best you can toward manifesting the future as you see it.

 

 

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You may be hesitant to say what’s on your mind today, because you don’t want to rain on everyone’s parade. Although you might not be the one to deliver the bad news, you aren’t fooled by all the people who are admiring the Emperor’s new suit of clothes. Rather than playing the role of the naysayer now, it may be smarter to just keep quiet. Don’t waste your energy arguing with those who cannot see what’s truly happening.

 

 

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

The Moon is brightening your sensitive 4th House of Home and Family today, reminding you that your current negativity can actually influence your point of view. Others might appear very positive about what’s going on, even if you are questioning their authority. However, you don’t have to fall prey to grandiose thinking. Do the intelligent thing and trust your own analysis over someone else’s hopeful dreams.

 

 

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You can turn one thought into a whole philosophical treatise today. However, you’re capable of rationalizing nearly anything, which makes you a very effective negotiator. Unfortunately, it’s hard to see the negative side of a situation now until it’s too late. Don’t hold on to an idea any longer if you know that it doesn’t make sense. You can waste valuable time and significant energy if you are too rigid in your approach.

 

 

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You might not be all that upbeat today, even if you can visualize the great opportunities ahead. But you are highly realistic now, enabling you to also see all the potential problems. Relax and don’t struggle too much to overcome your current self-doubt. Thankfully, your negativity will dissipate before your fears can even manifest.

 

 

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Although you can be masterful enough today to find a solution to the knottiest of problems, the Moon in your secretive sign urges you to keep your intentions quiet. Instead of calling attention to yourself, jump in and just do your share of the work. If your plan is successful, you can confidently tell others about your idea with a real sense of authority, rather than waving a flag while you’re still unsure about what you’re doing.

 

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

It’s challenging to be practical today because of your high level of enthusiasm. You are quite sure that you can pull off nearly anything you put your mind to now. But you may have a rude awakening if you take on more than you can handle. Unfortunately, you might have to put in a superhuman effort to meet your current obligations, instead of falling short of your promises. Ultimately, it’s best to avoid making too many commitments in the first place.

 

 

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Someone else’s tactics could clash with yours today, yet it still isn’t a good idea to turn a minor disagreement into a major argument. Even if your strategy is better, open conflict will not create the opportunity you seek; it will only add obstacles to your progress. Aggressive behavior won’t work in your favor, either. Demonstrate your competence by retreating quietly, upgrading your plan and then trying again when everyone is ready to listen.

 

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might try to convince someone that you’re right by sharing your positive outlook and making bold assertions today. But your enthusiasm is not a substitute for the work required to reach your ambitious goals. If you haven’t aimed too high, you should be able to overcome any resistance you encounter, but don’t expect immediate results. Success could take more time and effort than you thought.

 

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You are motivated to accomplish a lot today, yet it might not be easy to sustain your efforts. Even if you begin to feel worn out, you can reach into your deep spiritual well for the inspiration you need to keep going. Sometimes, you lose hope when you run into apparently insurmountable obstacles. But now you are eager to work hard and show the world what you’re made of. Have faith and let your light shine for everyone to see.
