Horoscopes April 2013

  • Aquarius

    Jan 20—Feb 18

    (Jan 20—Feb 18)
    The second quarter moon on the 18th isn’t in your sign, but its influence is far reaching. Look closely and you’ll realize that it shows you what’s standing in the way of change. Pushing past it could be as easy as finishing a daunting work project or even as painful as ending a friendship.

  • Aries

    March 21—April 19

    (March 21—April 19)
    The full “pink moon” is in your sign on the 10th, so life’s got a rose-colored tint. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, other names include the full “egg” moon, which might mean you’re in for a month full of incredible brunch. Everything is going your way as of late, but that’s not entirely a cosmic coincidence. Rejoice in your good fortune.

  • Cancer

    June 21—July 22

    (June 21—July 22)
    The second quarter moon on the 18th is just itching to make some big changes, but it would rather you have full control. April is the time to quit ignoring your frustrations and face them head on, no matter how unappealing that sounds. It’s your special time for growth—but you can’t flourish until toxic people and unhealthy things have been weeded from your life.

  • Capricorn

    Dec 22—Jan 19

    (Dec 22—Jan 19)
    The full moon is totally the lead singer of the lunar band. It’s the player that gets the most attention, but the fourth quarter moon also totally rocks and it’s in your sign on the 2nd. This is the important time when all loose ends must be wrapped up and old conflicts resolved. It seems daunting, but a life free of lingering issues and stress is a happy one—just ask Keith Richards.

  • Gemini

    May 21—June 20

    (May 21—June 20)
    Though you’re naturally gregarious, social Gemini pumps you up to Kathie Lee and Hoda-like levels. You’re suddenly a lot funnier, bright-eyed and maybe a little tipsy at times. Use your new magnetism to your advantage at work and happy hour. In both situations all month—and especially on the 10th—people will be drawn to you like a moth to a flaming drink.

  • Leo

    July 23—Aug 22

    (July 23—August 22)
    Did you pay Mercury to go on a hike this month? April is shockingly devoid of chaotic days as the planet never becomes too erratic. This is as rare as watching an episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and thinking, “man, those women are scholars!” Embrace this chaos-free month but note there’s some slight planetary tumult from the 1st to the 6th.

  • Libra

    Sept 23—Oct 22

    (Sept 23—Oct 22)
    Another month and barely any planetary action because you’ve been making your own luck since last June. You’ve been through a change and others have noticed it, too. You’ve got a new glow and a good attitude to boot, so you’re poised for big, well-deserved things around the 9th. Of course life hasn’t always been this fabulous—but without the dark, the light wouldn’t seem so bright.

  • Pices

    Feb 19—March 20

    (Feb 19—March 20)
    Chiron could definitely star in Grey’s Anatomy if planetary bodies were, ya know, capable of acting. It’s known as the “wounded healer,” schooled in the art of finding your deepest aches and bringing them to the surface. If it doesn’t sound pleasant, that’s because it’s not. But by the end of the 4th, your shoulders and heart will feel lighter.

  • Sagittarius

    Nov 22—Dec 21

    (Nov 22—Dec 21)
    April’s full moon is the “Pink Moon,” which means you’ll soon feel like a tortured English folk musician turning over in his grave when that VW commercial comes on. When you have to face the music after a fight on the 10th, refuse to back down—you kowtowed far too often in March and that’s not the Sagittarius way.

  • Scorpio

    Oct 23—Nov 21

    (Oct 23—Nov 21)
    Saturn has a pretty big job to do, hence its three-year visit: It’s trying to make a man/woman out of you, starting with your maturity level. Feeling frustrated at work and home lately? That’s your pal Saturn, testing your patience. It’ll be especially bad on the 12th, 22nd and 30th, but keep a level head—your reaction to stress will be noted by an important person.

  • Taurus

    April 20—May 20

    (April 20—May 20)
    Venus on the 15th, the sun on the 19th and Mars on the 20th means you’ve got your hands full—and if you don’t balance well, there’s a big mess in your future. Though Mars is brooding and nasty, it’s mostly cancelled out by Venus’ gift of love and the sun’s gentle calm. When you’re tested this month, don’t give in to anger. It’s the easiest emotion, but never the most effective.

  • Virgo

    Aug 23—Sept 22

    (Aug 23—Sept 22)
    Mercury is giving all signs a reprieve this month, so there won’t be any truly erratic days to contend with. Considering how much you’re juggling right now, this must be music to your busy little ears. But all work and no play makes Virgo a dull sign. You are by nature incapable of saying no—so the next time a favor stresses you out, you’ve got to let that ball drop.
