Your daily Horoscope.. 28 April 2016

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

You may not want to turn away someone who needs your assistance but the fact is you are snowed under with work at the moment and if you take on any more responsibilities it could all go wrong. Learn to say “no” – and mean it.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

Everything in your world is so positive at the moment that you can easily turn dreams into realities. However, because Mercury begins one of its retrograde phases today you must accept that even a Taurus can’t do it all. Think quality, not quantity.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

Someone else’s ideas and opinions may seem appealing but you have got a mind of your own and must use it. Trust what your inner voice tells you over the next few days – it’s more reliable than a thousand so-called “experts”.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

This is a good time for travel and social activities, so don’t sit there wondering why life seems to be passing you by, get up and get busy. A special friend will become even more special if you include them in your plans.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

Be aware of what is going on around you and be aware of how your actions can affect other people. This is a time of great opportunity but you must be on the ball mentally. Use your knowledge of human nature to get what you need.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

This is easily one of the best times of the year for you but as Mercury, your ruler, turns retrograde today you must not take anything for granted. Remember too that actions always have consequences. Confidence is good – over-confidence is not.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

You will accomplish more over the next few days if you don’t try too hard. If you were planning something spectacular it might be wise to think again, especially if there is money involved. Don’t let others take advantage of your enthusiasm.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

You will need to be on your guard over the next 24 hours, especially when dealing with people who envy your success and covet what you possess, be it something of a material nature or a social rank or a relationship. Don’t let them take it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

It may at times seem as if you are being swept along by forces over which you have no control, and to a certain extent it may be true, but you can always influence the way your life develops. Knowing what it is that you desire will help.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

Your powers of persuasion have rarely been higher but you still need to tread carefully when dealing with people both socially and at work. You may think you have won them over but can you be certain? The planets say not!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

If you try to get out of something you previously agreed to take part in your reputation may crash. A promise is a promise, so do what is expected of you and do it with a smile – it won’t be as tough or as boring as you fear.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

You may have to cuts corners and bend rules to get what you want today. This is one of those occasions where, if you play it by the book, there is no chance of meeting your deadline or reaching your goal. Risks will have to be taken.
