Horoscopes: Thursday, April 13, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Body signals - hunger, sleepiness, fear - are not commanders of our being, just suggestions from the physical realm. They can be heeded or overridden. When overridden, their intensity will lessen.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What we resist persists. Let go, and the opposing force might come forward, but it won't be able to grip you. You'll be like water, offering nothing to grab onto.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you seek to bypass the problem, you'll squander energy in the workaround. This one needs to be addressed. But don't worry: Confrontation will shrink it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). They will never say you weren't generous. In fact, you may feel compelled to give more than is necessary or even appropriate, though you won't regret this.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will solve one of the great mysteries of life - like, "What are other people's motives?" or "What's he thinking?" You might not find the answer, but you'll get a rather enlightening glimpse of it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Accepting what you can't change is one way to go about it, though you might accidentally find that through acceptance, a transformation happens anyway.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Should you spend, save, or give what you have? Whichever choice will end in loss; it's just a matter of timing. The answer depends on personal style and priorities.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You haven't forgotten about the person who knocked him/herself out to help you. But you haven't yet shown official appreciation. You'll enjoy fulfilling this part of your to-do list.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Selfies don't always represent the prevailing narcissism of the age. Today's snaps will be about letting others know you're proud to be together and want to share the memory.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may be worried about whether your plans have a solid foundation. Is there anything hidden you might be missing? Are your worries a form of resistance, or an intuition? Don't move until you feel better about this.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In fairy tales, uninvited guests turn up at the party anyway, resentful at the slight, and wielding spells of vengeance. In real life, it's just hurt feelings, but that's bad, too. Include everyone, and you won't have to worry about it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Regardless of how cool or solid or useful a thing may be, what's popular now could be out tomorrow. You have no control over trends, but you know what feels right for you, and you'll be happy you acted on that instinct.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 13). It is not imperative that you know what you're doing before you start. If it were, no one would create, explore, or love. Trust yourself to figure it out as you go. You'll especially love where you go in May. June is for promises exchanged to be kept all year. July brings an investment opportunity. Taurus and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 4, 44, 49, and 15.
