Daily Horoscope

By Linda C. Black Tribune Media Services Today’s Birthday (April 17). You may have had to make your own decisions in the past. This year, you’ll be more successful if you work with a partner. Kick ideas around, and give up the idea that you always have to be right. You’ll get farther. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) _ Today is a 6 _ Put fun and games on hold for a while, and focus on finances. Check all your options carefully before you make your purchase. Taurus (April 20-May 20) _ Today is a 7 _ You’re a very capable person, but that doesn’t mean you have to do everything. Take care of yourself. Let somebody else take care of you, too. You’ll like it. Gemini (May 21-June 21) _ Today is a 6 _ Jobs you’ve been putting off are coming due. Procrastination is no longer an option. This isn’t easy, but it could be profitable. Cancer (June 22-July 22) _ Today is an 8 _ If your situation is slightly unstable, reinforce your traditions. Favorite foods and rituals calm you down and strengthen your resolve. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) _ Today is a 7 _ Protecting your home is important to you, so don’t hesitate any longer. Provide something that makes you more secure, even if it takes work. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) _ Today is a 6 _ Stubborn heads may clash over how things should be done. Keep a low profile, and you’ll come through lookin’ good. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) _ Today is a 6 _ Creative work can be rewarding, but it isn’t always easy. If you run into a snag or two, hang in there. You’re getting better. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) _ Today is a 7 _ You should have most of the jittery types settled down by now. Stay in control until you’re sure how to proceed next. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) _ Today is a 7 _ You’re not very good at keeping secrets, but you can learn with practice. Do that now, as you listen and wait for another good deal. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) _ Today is a 7 _ If you’re in the market for true love, ask a friend to set you up. A connection made now through a friend looks like it could turn out quite well. If you already have true love, you could try the same idea in a business deal. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) _ Today is a 6 _ Carefully review your work again, especially where money is concerned. If you do everything you promised, abundance can be yours. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) _ Today is a 7 _ People can be very set in their ways and unwilling to even listen. If you find yourself in that situation, remember that love can get through where words fail. ___ ‘copy 2003, TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES INC. Distributed by Knight Ridder/Tribune Information Services.
