Horoscopes: Saturday, April 22, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Once you figure out that you're not going to get what you need or want from the situation, move on. Don't wait, argue, negotiate or give it another chance. What you want is just around the corner.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There's a lot of futility in mental exercises such as weighing the options, delving into the history and considering other assessments. Skip it. Get down this: Do or don't do. Your gut will tell you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Communication is like music; it's as much about the spaces as it is about the words. There is a good kind of silence and a bad kind. The bad kind is awkward. The good kind might mean love.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're totally focused on getting through your work, which happens to also be a lot of fun for you today. Research will be part of it. Go for the story behind the story. That's where the gold is.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). With the current state of Mercury, it's hard to avoid taking information out of context or reading too much into things, but do try. Also, go to the source.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your experience has taught you quite a lot about what to expect from situations like the one you face today. And yet, this one is slightly different. Reserve your judgments for later.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll be focused on developing your skills. This is a better way to spend your time than trying to make something happen that is clearly not working.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your lifestyle is not for the faint of heart. It takes strength to handle responsibilities and deal with the needs of those around you. You will rise to the occasion in every way, at a cost.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Diversity makes a group strong, and differences of opinion will be half the fun. As long as people respect one another and don't invest too much identity in being right, it will all work out today.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Tell people what you like about them. Mutual admiration gets a friendship started. Over time, this casual relationship is sure to blossom.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll pinpoint the culprit keeping you from being organized. More than likely, it's a desire to get more things accomplished in a day than is reasonable to expect, thus causing the pile-up.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Though small details that don't go as planned - such as a missed phone call or appointment - are inconsequential, they may still throw off your rhythm. Detach and you'll get your mojo back.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 22). The obstacle in your path is completely surmountable, which you'll prove in the next four weeks. Friends help you move up, over and on. In May, romantic notions become romantic actions. Bank your winnings in July; you'll need the savings for what you want to build in October. Aquarius and Pisces adore you. Lucky numbers: 38, 10, 13, 27, 19.
