This could be one of the most pleasant days of the entire month. It’s easy to express our affection for the people we love. Passionate encounters and loving gestures will be the order of the day. Old-fashioned tributes like candy and flowers could prove a big hit, especially with Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

Finances could be improving for many. More money for luxuries may become available. This is an excellent time to indulge our love of creature comforts. Fashionable clothes, luxurious toiletries and gorgeous artwork are all worthwhile splurges.

The Astrologer Daily – Mercury opposite Mars: April 16th, 2014

Our minds and bodies may not be working together. Things that we want could be beyond our physical reach. Instead of straining to reach something unattainable, it would be better to lower our expectations. This doesn’t mean we should give up on our dreams. Postponing them is a better plan.

Sarcastic speech can do great damage to close relationships. Aries and Libra should be especially careful about heaping scorn on colleagues, relatives and neighbors. If it’s impossible to say something nice, remain silent. Even a casual joke can cause deep offense right now.

The Astrologer Daily – Moon trine Neptune: April 15th, 2014

We have an opportunity to reach for the stars. Practical considerations aren’t very important when we’re able to improve the lives of so many others. Doing volunteer work is strongly advised. Donating time, money and energy to a worthy cause can pay off handsomely, both emotionally and spiritually.

Falling in love is another possibility. This planetary planet showcases the softer side of our personalities. It’s easy to fall head-over-heels for someone who exhibits qualities of tenderness, compassion and creativity. We’d be wise to postpone any serious commitments until later, when the rose-colored glasses come off.

The Astrologer Daily – Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse: April 14th, 2014

Professional considerations demand that we watch the company we keep. Associating with questionable people can damage our own reputations. It’s better to be surrounded by those who exemplify honesty, morality and kindness. Social status doesn’t count for much right now. Some of the most prominent officials are often guilty of abusive behavior. Steer clear of these manipulators.

Mercury also forms stressful aspects to both Jupiter and Pluto. Beware of sending emotional e-mail responses or making angry posts on social networking sites. Everything we say can be held against us.
