Horoscopes by Holiday for April 20

By Holiday Mathis - Horoscopes by Holiday | Apr 20, 2024

Mercury and Venus aligned to greet the new season with a solid alliance of heart and head, word and deed, desire and fulfillment. Today brings another lucky conjunction, adding to the prosperous and fortunate omens for Taurus Season. Jupiter, the planet of luck, and Uranus, the planet of surprises, align to the tune of coins dropping… jackpot!

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Because it’s possible to dream vividly or fantasize wildly while reclined, it can feel like the mind and body are somehow separate. But of course the brain is a body part that will thrive on the oxygen and nourishment you feed it today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You get the feeling you belong to something bigger. Don’t worry about how you fit into it; that’s for the puzzle workers to figure out. Just be the piece. When the time is right, all your grooves and edges will just pop right in.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To a hiker, the boundary lines on a map are nowhere to be seen. To someone buying a property remotely, the boundary lines on a map are essential to the deal. You respect what matters to others, even if it seems arbitrary or irrelevant to you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Take compliments. It doesn’t matter whether or not you agree. Accept all gifts. Deflect nothing. Your gracious reception is meaningful to others. Also, soaking in the sweetness of friends will build you in ways you don’t even know you need.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It can take a lot for you to get comfortable in a situation. One of the ways you can tell how much you trust another person is in your willingness to be silly with or around them. New developments will pave the way for fun.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You shape raw concepts into refined ideas. You get results and others will want to know how. They’ll ask for your insights because they trust you; embrace the responsibility with gusto.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are tropes about the wise sage — a silent, elderly hill dweller who requires climbing to get to. In truth, you will learn from the wisdom of children, mistakes and even the wisdom of dogs. This is possible because you yourself are wise.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Paradoxically, rising above a problem will first require you to burrow into it much further. Once you get to a certain depth it will be clear that the real problem is not the symptom you’ve been trying to get over but something else entirely.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The grand scheme may elude you, but trust that it’s all happening around, over and under you. Unseen forces are knitting magic in the background and you will soon step into this brand-new scenery.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There are actually people who see compassion and tolerance as weakness. Some of the bullies may never learn the power that comes from enveloping another in unconditional acceptance and love. You’ll feel that surge today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll enjoy being among the fixers — people sorting things out together in good communication, goodwill and ultimately in love. Bonds will be forged in simple acts of community.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Every voyage harbors a juncture of no return — a spot where forging ahead feels lighter than retracing steps. Trust your heart’s compass; it senses this threshold better than any map.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 20). You’ll experience what many pay top dollar for; you won’t have to. You’ll walk forward and the gates will swing open as though by the hand of fate. The reality is that you already bought your ticket in a mysterious way, so don’t doubt for a second that you’ve earned this. More highlights: making an indelible mark in your field and the love letters of a lifetime. Libra and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 13, 12, 2 and 33.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Before her blockbuster film debut, Academy Award winner Jessica Lange studied to become a mime. Little did she know that pulling on an invisible rope would take her into the hands of King Kong or the psyche of Joan Crawford and Marlene Dietrich. On the day of her birth, the sun, Mercury and Venus were in Taurus, the sign of sensuality and luxury.
