20 April 2015, Nirapad News:
Enthusiasm wanes as we search for ways to simplify our lives and stabilize the progress we made over the past month. The Sun enters steady Taurus at 5:41 am EDT, strengthening our resolve to finish what we start. Although we want tangible results, we still become distracted once the Moon shifts into curious Gemini at 7:27 pm. Meanwhile, we can take an idea too far as cerebral Mercury closes in on a dynamic square to boisterous Jupiter.
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You’re in for a treat today, since you finally get to enjoy the sweet rewards of past efforts. But you might feel as if life is challenging you to stand still and appreciate your current position, even if you are itching to begin something new. Just as you think you have your restlessness under control, a wave of anticipation catches you off guard, reminding you that you aren’t quite ready to settle down. Nevertheless, you don’t have to be the first one out of the gate; kick back and indulge in life’s pleasures before taking off on your next adventure.
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)
The fact of the matter is it usually takes a lot of provocation for your anger to boil over. Although the Sun’s return to your pragmatic sign today encourages you to be calm and peaceful, stress can slowly build until you turn into a raging Bull. Thankfully, you prefer to be a lover than a fighter by focusing on the beautiful aspects of life rather than contributing to any negativity. Setting your intentions on the most positive outcome allows your good nature to shine through all the needless noise.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)
It’s time to take an objective approach by analyzing familiar issues that recycle in your life before they get set aside again without resolution. Of course, it’s tempting to bury an unpleasant recollection and the uncomfortable feelings attached to it. However, exploring unknown territory reveals how your emotions are intertwined with rigidly constructed memories. Although self-reflection is useful to generate personal growth, sooner or later you need to stop worrying about all the things you cannot change. You can’t fully embrace the future until you have dealt with your past.
Cancer Horoscope (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Schedule plenty of time over the next month to reassess and redefine your life path rather than limiting it to the present circumstances. Instead of only focusing on the tedious work you must do today or needlessly obsessing about office politics, look for ways to cultivate your long-term goals. Imagine where you want to be in ten years, but remain practical in the process. Ultimately, it’s much more satisfying to watch your dreams slowly take lasting shape than to see them bloom quickly, only to fade from the picture. Good things are worth the wait.
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Having a job that pays your bills might not be enough to keep you emotionally satisfied now that the Sun brightens your 10th House of Profession. You want a career path that also offers you opportunities for growth and advancement. Unfortunately, your long-term goals may require you to make decisions that interfere with your personal life. However, you can consciously choose to pare back your aspirations so you don’t end up over committed. Be proactive and simplify your agenda before you’re in trouble down the road.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Your current optimism motivates you to take care of business and clear as many things as possible off your to-do list. Although you have a heightened sense of purpose now, you might have trouble converting your good intentions into the most effective behavior. However, the Sun’s shift into your 9th House of Adventure insists that you make your move sooner than later. Luckily, you can accomplish nearly anything you set your heart on today — as long as you know when to say no. Sometimes, enough really is enough.
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Your curiosity could very well get the best of you today as you’re driven to explore the vagaries of love. You are not satisfied with shallow answers now and seek the hidden components of interpersonal relationships. But this newly found interest isn’t just an idle wandering of your heart; it’s about a search to establish a healthier emotional balance. Thankfully, you should be able to positively transform your world if you can discover what causes are at play. Luckily, increasing your awareness may be all that’s needed to find satisfaction.
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You want quick answers to the most basic questions before you set yourself up for additional frustration. The radiant Sun camps out in your 7th House of Partnerships over the next month, illuminating a widening gulf between your desire for emotional complexity and someone else’s need for low-key simplicity, especially if it impacts a current relationship. Even if you’re unable to resolve these divergent approaches, your recognition of the two extremes makes interactions less of a struggle now. Although it feels as if everything is beyond your reach, you can always expand your mind and open your heart.
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You wish you were embarking on a journey of a lifetime, but you cannot afford to ignore your current responsibilities now. The Sun’s month-long visit to your 6th House of Work emphasizes the daily routines that give your life consistency. Don’t worry about missing out on the fun; you will have plenty of time to play before you know it. The sooner you acknowledge that the immediate emphasis is not on achieving personal satisfaction, you can find happiness by continuing to do the smaller things that truly matter. Count your blessings and get to work.
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Ironically, you could take your current desire for pleasure so seriously that you overbook your calendar and stress yourself out. Luckily, you don’t need to try so hard to impress anyone because you’re heading into a joyful few weeks while the Sun is shining in your 5th House of Fun and Games. However, it’s counterproductive to think and plan so much that it squashes your creative spontaneity. It’s better to stick to your daily routine just enough to support your independent self-expression without further jeopardizing your stability.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Maintaining your freedom of movement is essential for your creativity to soar, but you also don’t want to destabilize your current security. However, you might not be ready to give up your emotional attachments, even if your drive for independence is irrepressible. Keep in mind you are the only one who can solve your own internal conflicts when push comes to shove. Your surprising discovery is that no drastic action is required now as long as you stay in touch with your feelings. The surest way to avoid having any regrets is to listen to your heart.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Establishing reliable channels of communication helps you keep your thoughts from leading you astray. Although no one is likely accusing you of slacking off now, you still need to pick up your work pace because the planets are giving you the green light to move forward with your plans. Paradoxically, you also must be more efficient with your time in order to take on another project. Grabbing an opportunity while it lasts is wise as long as it doesn’t turn your whole world upside down.
