Your Daily Horoscope.. 16 April 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

You may be tempted to give up on something that isn’t going right but you really should hang on a bit longer. The reason fate is confronting you with such a challenging situation is because you are supposed to get stronger by overcoming it.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

According to the planets you are trying too hard and making life difficult for yourself when it does not have to be. Cut yourself some slack and don’t worry about whether or not you are on top of your work – it’s not as important as you think.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

The message of the planets this weekend is that you need to be more relaxed about your ambitions. It is good to aim high but it is not good to put yourself under pressure day in and day out. There are more important things in life.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

You will go out of your way this weekend to make sure others cannot see how much you are hurting inside. Is that really such a good idea? If you don’t want to hurt so much then let them know that what they are doing is wrong.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

Do you go on the offensive this weekend or do you resist the temptation to rock the boat in case it leads to further unpleasantness? Only you can decide which path to choose but it must be one or the other – you can’t have it both ways.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

Your sixth sense is telling you that someone you live or work with is abusing the trust you have given them. You won’t know for sure what is going on until the sun changes signs early next week but in the meantime be on your guard.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

You may be ambitious by nature but do you have a clear idea of what it is you are hoping to accomplish? Between now and Tuesday, when the sun changes signs, give it some thought. A sense of purpose makes all things possible.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

You seem reluctant to take chances at the moment. Maybe that’s no bad thing though as the planets suggest if you let yourself go over the next 48 hours you could make some silly mistakes. Also, don’t spend what you don’t have.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

Someone will find out the hard way this weekend that you are not the sort to let an insult go unanswered. Having said which, try not to overreact. Some slights are so petty that they are really not worth getting worked up about.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

The planets warn that if you take on someone in a position of power you will quickly find that you cannot win. If you are smart you will back off until such time as you have a genuine chance of competing on equal terms.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

As is so often the case you will choose to go your own way this weekend rather than follow the herd. That’s fine, of course, but don’t reject what others do simply because it isn’t unique. It’s okay to be social sometimes Aquarius!

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

You are unlikely to be in the mood to give in over a partnership matter of some kind this weekend. But is it really worth carrying on a feud over something that in the greater scheme of things is so petty? Probably not. Find a compromise.
