Horoscope for 26th April: Is today your Lucky day?

ARIES:You will be feeling more intense, perhaps slightly stubborn, today, especially when it comes to cash or other practical matters. But sometimes you have to take a stand, even with yourself. Mull everything over carefully, and once you have reached a considered decision, you can take steps to resolve whatever is bothering you. Just don’t expect instant results. You may feel slightly controlling about your possessions today, and not too happy to share, but a little generosity will be long remembered.
TAURUS:Getting your head and your heart together are important today. What you want and ought to do have to be the same. In that way, you can put your wholehearted enthusiasm behind your plans which will work better as a result. Make sure you have supportive companions who are willing to follow your lead. It’s important that you’re not left on your own or pushed to one side just for a day or so. Ask for what you need, which is more pampering, indulging and feeling comforted.
GEMINI:Nothing will be gained by racing around at high speed today especially when your energy and motivation are low. There will be more benefit to finding quality time for yourself. Ponder, prepare, plan and understand. Companions may be needing help, but you need to put down limits as well. Just keep yourself to yourself. You probably don’t want to be too open, since everyone around seems preoccupied. You may feel they are ignoring you or indifferent to your feelings, but you shouldn’t take it so personally.
CANCER:Now is the time to give yourself a shake. Join hands with likeminded friends. Together you can achieve a more than you imagine. It just requires focus and persistence. You’ll be in a zany, stimulating mood. At points you may also be rebellious and downright eccentric, just to make a point. You’ll also want advice about the long term. Obviously, no one makes your mind up but you. But that doesn’t mean to say testing out ideas and picking up more information will not be useful.
LEO:Maybe you could do with more time with loved ones, but you cannot take your eye off the ball at work or in your community activities. If you are feeling pulled in two directions, maybe you need to revise your plans and ambitions. You need to be focused and clear that what you are doing has you exclusive attention. You will want more attention, recognition for your talents and admiration, and that means you’ve got to put your energy into doing things in a new and different way.
VIRGO:You want the freedom to speak openly and move around as it suits you. Aim to stretch yourself in at least one activity during the day. Standing back to see everything in perspective can be enormously helpful. You can make better decisions and become less obsessed by what may not be hugely important.rnIf you can’t travel literally, you’ll travel in your mind. Get out the holiday brochures, read books with an exotic flavour, do anything that takes your mind off whatever is standard and expected.
LIBRA:The New Moon in the deepest part of your chart could pass you by without any noticeable effect. But if you can give yourself space to ponder you may be able to answer one or two questions which have been bothering you recently. Nothing superficial will really help. You need to get right down to the nitty gritty. Stand steady for a little while to understand what is going on and how you can make sense of it. Then you can scamper back to normality again.
SCORPIO:Maybe you will feel more dependent than usual, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. You just have to make sure that close partners understand it is each for each. It cannot all be one way otherwise resentment will build up. Try to get better understandings in place. Since you may be feeling just a bit more vulnerable than usual, it’s important that you give to help others settle and then in turn they are more likely to do the same for you.
SAGITTARIUS:The New Moon in your chart area of health and work comes round once a year to nudge you into getting more practical about your body and your daily schedule. Find ways of boosting your stamina in the months ahead and try not to waste energy going the long way round chores. You’ll need to watch your diet, not in the sense of eating less but maybe more sensibly, and give yourself things that are going to be of positive benefit rather than pull your energy further down.
CAPRICORN:Whether you are around loved ones, children or social mates, you will want rounds of applause, compliments galore and appreciative attention. Not a time to skulk in the corner. Be boisterous and exuberant and make sure you get centre spotlight. Be a little bit theatrical and dramatic, try cracking a few jokes. This is the entertaining Moon of the month for you, so there’s no sense in letting it slide by without making a definite statement in what you do. scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS:Putting down roots and finding a sense of belonging is especially important with the new Moon at the lowest part of your chart as it makes you sensitive to any lacks in your emotional life. You want to be surrounded by everything that feels comforting and reassuring. If you are a wary of being alone, put a bit of energy and effort into finding someone nice you can wrap yourself around. In the last resort, wear your most comfortable clothes and snuggle up with a good book.

PISCES:Getting your feet on the ground, and paying attention to details, may not sound like a laugh a minute. But if you ignore what is under your feet, you will not be able to tackle the more expansive, fun projects in future. Regard it as a useful preliminary. You’ll be moving smartly around a busy schedule, with more comings and goings, conversations, meetings and general chit chat than usual. Check out in advance whether what you’re doing is necessary – sometimes you don’t stop to think things through.
