Horoscopes: Saturday, April 8, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe you forgot something simple. Did you? Such good news. All you have to do is figure out what you missed, supply it, and then put one foot in front of the other. This will be easy!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This is an incredibly special situation. Happiness is seeing it in the way that happy people do. Can you see it that way? Walk around it. You probably can. It's a matter of perspective.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your need to please is strong these days. Who else will be pleased when you get to the goal? Tie other people into your plans. This is how great things will get accomplished.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don't give your trust or your money to an unproven entity. What people say doesn't matter at all unless it's backed up by what they do. Time will tell.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Make quick decisions. Navigate the day. This is the kind of scene that you probably invented, and thereby should un-invent in the moment it doesn't suit you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If there isn't a deadline, the job won't be accomplished. Also, how about involving a person and setting a date? Time and place stamps matter. By a lot.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). How will the thing work? Not like you want it to. This is where compassion comes in. Someone will be your hero in a strange moment. You don't want this, and yet it's happening.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll get someone to open up by making it feel safe for him or her to do so. Stay pleasantly neutral and make it known that you won't judge. Soon the truth will come out.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Eventually, all those who stand on the pedestals will have to come down. That's just the way it is. They will, at some point, need to do the inelegant, creaturely things.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Laughing leads to laughing. This is the secret and the remedy. Don't wait until you're feeling bad to look for the funny. This is not hard. Comic treasures are everywhere when you're looking for them.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You've earned your network, one relationship at a time. The people you know trust and respect you. You have connections another person wants, but some relationships are nontransferable.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Accomplishments need to be acknowledged immediately. You'll receive timely compliments, and they will have great power. The same words said in an untimely fashion wouldn't have counted.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (APRIL 8). Your belief is profound. You will make it happen. Your life will explode, fantasy-style, in 2018. Up until then, you need to be extremely vigilant, keeping up with your commitments and being strongly self-possessed. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 45, 39, 29 and 44.
