Horoscope: April 17

Aries (March 21-April 19). They’re probably the same people you saw yesterday, but you’ll enjoy them more today. A lighthearted spirit takes hold.

Taurus (April 20-May 20). There are those in your family who need saving. You’ve come to the rescue before and wouldn’t mind doing it again. But something is stopping you.

Gemini (May 21-June 21). The work you don’t want to do will drag on and on. Oh, is it ever tedious! But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Cancer (June 22-July 22). Those who love you will not require you to prove yourself. That’s why it’s very important that you be tougher than they are.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22). Should you waste time? You may not be able to resist the sweet seduction of long stretches of unstructured hours. Why plan anything?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your generosity is personal, selfless — and the world is a better place because of you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As a rule, you give people the benefit of the doubt. However, in the case of a minor, your instinct is keen — don’t hesitate or doubt.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Be careful not to intellectualize your plans to death. You’re smart, so your decisions will be, too.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone is working you like an infomercial, making you believe you need and want things that just yesterday you didn’t even know existed.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Better to develop yourself to your highest potential than to sacrifice yourself for someone else’s cause.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your inner life is already rich, though it’s getting even better as new influences come into your world this weekend.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20). You will flee from oppressive forces and spend the weekend working on yourself — though it doesn’t feel like work.


Today’s birthday (April 17). By mid-July, you’ll make money doing what you used to do for fun. August brings adventurous living. Your lucky numbers are 40, 1, 23, 5 and 18.
