Horoscope: April 18

Aries (March 21-April 19): You’ll hit it off with someone. When two people click as well as this, there’s a temptation to divulge every aspect of your life and get close quickly. Resist.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): It may seem as though your loved one is deliberately trying to annoy you, but the behavior is not intentional.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): If you stick to the agenda with the focus of a perfectionist, you will only be dissatisfied. Plus, you’ll miss out on humor and creativity.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): Study the habits of a person you admire. Establish a predictable ritual that represents the person you want to be.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Maybe you’ve suffered from some wrong thinking lately. But your mind is also a powerful genius, controlling your temperature, blood pressure, immune system and a million other things.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Neatness and organization will be key to your happiness. If you live with others, they will benefit from your talent for creating peaceful environments.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): The agendas of those around you may clash with your plans. If you have a quiet, private space of your own, you’ll be happily working out new solutions there.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Boldness sometimes happens without much fanfare. In fact, it can be as silent as a raised eyebrow.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): On a molecular level, most things are more empty space than solid matter. That’s why you shouldn’t worry if your wishes haven’t yet materialized.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): When people feel comfortable around you, they want to be around you more. Making someone feel good about him or herself may be the best thing to attract this person’s affection.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): What one person sees as exasperating, another person finds quirky and charming. You’ll find yourself in the second category today.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): A loved one rubs you the wrong way. Things can’t go on as they are for much longer without you becoming disgruntled.


Today’s birthday (April 18): You will experience the paradox of true love this year. No matter how much you give of yourself -- and indeed you will give your all -- your heart will be full. You have fans, and one of them will employ you in May. Your lucky numbers are 50, 25, 41, 28 and 19.
