Your Daily Horoscopes for April 20th

General Daily Horoscope
A new astrological month begins as the Sun enters Taurus at 6:17 am EDT. The Bull symbolizes the power of spring’s rising energy. What began last month must gain structure to endure, but the Sun’s cooperative sextile with imaginative Neptune emphasizes the importance of our dreams in creating reality. Meanwhile, the Moon shifts into adventurous Sagittarius at 2:49 am, reflecting our need to reach beyond the ordinary for meaning.
Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’ve been going at full throttle for a while, but it’s finally time to slow down and enjoy what you’ve accomplished. However, this won’t be as easy as it sounds, even with the Sun’s move into earthy Taurus today. You may be more determined now to relax, but there’s still a pile of planets clustered in fiery Aries, so don’t judge yourself too harshly if it still takes a while for your energy to settle down.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

The Sun returns to your sign today, boosting your energy and restoring your confidence in your ability to finish whatever you start. But as your rigidity increases, you also realize the inadequacy of your current strategy. Being aware of your limitations is just as important as believing you can do anything. A familiarity with your shortcomings can be an asset, but your chances for success will be improved by concentrating primarily on your strengths.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Your key planet Mercury nears the end of its retrograde phase, yet runs into a bit of trouble today when it opposes powerful Saturn, blocking your regular avenues of communication. Someone may appear to be working against you, but, luckily, you have the patience to sort out everything. If you can tighten your logic, you should be able to make your case effectively. When the time comes, don’t embellish your presentation; the facts will tell the story well enough on their own.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You may already believe that your life will get easier for you, even if you aren’t fully ready to trust your intuition. The Sun’s entry into your 11th House of Hopes and Wishes can shine a new light on what makes you happy. Instead of having to fight for your ideas, you are entering a phase when your peers will stand behind you. Don’t let old fears sabotage your endeavors. Have a little faith in your friends and graciously accept their support when they offer it.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may be confronted today by someone who threatens your status. Unfortunately, this conflict could turn sour, even if you did nothing wrong. Obviously, you don’t have to admit that you were at fault, only that you’re sorry to have made the situation any worse. A heartfelt apology can clear the air and free everyone to move on.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You might think you have a smarter idea for nearly everything today, but that doesn’t mean your way is really the best course of action. Unfortunately, you could be so sure of yourself now that you’ll take on anyone who disagrees with your plan. Thankfully, you should come to your senses before an argument reaches the point of no return. In a fight to the finish, there will be no winners, so find common ground and build a consensus from that point on.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are feeling a bit spacey now and even though you have some interesting and creative ideas, it’s difficult for you to express them. Normally, you’re able to maintain a healthy perspective, but today you could grow obsessive by trying too hard to make your point. It’s counterproductive to worry about what others think. Just share what’s on your mind and then let it go.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

A discussion could escalate into a power struggle today, even if your intention is to return to simplicity. The Sun’s entry into placid Taurus lures you into believing the disarming illusion that relationships can always be bucolic. But conflict may return when you remember that you’re not interested in compromising your zest for life. Passion is still more important to you than comfort alone.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Conversations with co-workers can blow someone’s feelings out of proportion today, adding plenty of confusion to the situation. The more you try to talk it out, the more complicated it becomes. Part of the problem is that it’s easy to make broad sweeping statements that are based upon generalities. Instead, be picky and stick to the details. The more specific you can be now, the less time it will take to resolve the current misunderstanding.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You feel your strength returning and are eager to be productive, even if there are tricky communication issues that need to be managed today. You might be inclined to jump in and tackle a problem directly, but this isn’t the best approach now. Your compulsive need to gain closure on an emotional issue may warp your perspective, so wait for your clarity to return before saying something you’ll regret.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may have thoughts that seem so astounding today you cannot let go of them. But you might be afraid to share your ideas for fear that others will steal them from you. Your current paranoia isn’t likely based on what’s happening now, but rather on a memory about someone once getting credit for what you did. Reframing old disappointments is part of a therapeutic process, as long as you’re willing to acknowledge the difference between the past and the present.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your fantasies seem larger than life today, yet there’s little chance that you’ll get lost in them because the practical Taurus Sun keeps you firmly grounded. Listen closely to your intuition, as knowledge is revealed through the practice of meditation, yoga and other relaxation techniques. But this inward focus can be a waste of time unless you follow through in the outer realms, too. Once you are clear about your goals, you’ll have a better idea of what to do next.
