Horoscopes: Sunday, April 30, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You pull things together in the most interesting ways. Your approach to life is fascinating! Of course, not to you. You're used to it. But someone will be impressed.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The well-known solution is not the one you need to try right now. Your openness to the unconventional will give you keys to a more creative existence.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Their eyes are on you. In time, this will manifest as imitation. Is what you're doing worthy of imitation?

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don't have to make it up as you go. A path has been cleared, though this is not readily apparent. Most likely, the key is in the patterns of those who've already done this.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Give-and-take won't work. It's the taking that's the problem. Takers cause loss, and takers lose. Strive to be either a giver or a receiver, not a taker.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It used to be that one of man's primary ways of staying safe was to run for cover. We've evolved, but the urge to flee is still there, as you may notice today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In the orchard of existence, the juiciest sections of life exist around the seeds of wishes and within the skin of reality.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will thrive in a responsive environment, one that cradles and embraces you, that caters to your unique rhythms, that allows you to curl up and rest.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Fighting for a principle isn't so hard. Anyone can do it. It's living up to a principle that's challenging. Do that first - because if you can't, it's not worth it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Humans so often equate good looks with goodness, when of course, the two have very little to do with each other. In today's character assessments, be careful to look past appearances.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Communicate about money. You may be thrifty and make wise financial decisions, but the point is moot if your loved ones counter your intentions with frivolity.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). As for the burdens laid on you by society, there may be a way around some of them that you're not seeing. Rest and detach today. You'll come back with a new idea tomorrow.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 30). As you become more organized, efficient and thrifty, it will be as if someone gave you the most precious gift of all - more time. Love both delights and distracts you in May. June shows your talent blossoming. The great satisfaction you get from learning soon translates into augmented wages in September. Pisces and Libra adore you. Lucky numbers: 9, 20, 44, 14 and 38.
