Horoscope

WEEK OF APRIL 11 – 17

Aries – March 21 – April 20: If you feel like every day is the same thing, then figure out a way to add some spark to the week. Invite friends for an adventure or embrace a new hobby.

Taurus – April 21 – May 21: Find ways to entertain your family and yourself without breaking the bank. Recreational centres and parks are often free and have many possibilities.

Gemini – May 22 – June 21: Explore more creative pursuits in the days to come. You can find many great ideas and starter kits for arts and crafts projects at your local craft store.

Cancer – June 22 – July 22: Don’t pressure yourself into taking on more than you can handle. Even though you may feel up to the challenge, there’s no shame in accepting help.

Leo – July 23 – Aug. 23: This week you may find yourself looking inward, which is not necessarily the norm for you. Try connecting with others as it may do you some good.

Virgo – Aug. 24 – Sept. 22: A new relationship could start this week. Don’t try to put on airs; just be yourself and you will likely find that everything will work out for the best.

Libra – Sept. 23 – Oct. 23: Financial uncertainty has you rethinking things this week. Just be sure you are not being pennywise but dollar foolish. Make cuts across the board.

Scorpio – Oct. 24 – Nov. 22: When another person confides in you, it is up to you to keep his/her secret, unless you believe doing so would be harmful to that person. Maintain your trustworthy reputation.

Sagittarius – Nov. 23 – Dec. 21: Don’t rush ahead on a project, even if you think you are ready to move forward. Give it a few more days of careful consideration before diving right in.

Capricorn – Dec. 22 – Jan. 20: As tedious as research can be, it is ultimately necessary if you are planning a big move or a change in your financial situation. Seek professional advice, if necessary.

Aquarius – Jan. 21 – Feb. 18: Some details are still up in the air about a potential trip or adventure. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get excited about the prospects.
