Horoscopes: 16 -22 April 2020


Celebrity birthday

Kate Hudson

19 April 1979

Kate normally has a very sunny and charming personality which wins her friends and influences others in her favour. However, she must be careful of what she says and does as she has a habit of putting her foot in her mouth. From August onwards, her star power starts to rise again, as does her popularity. Her strong compassionate streak will always be there for her family and friends, but she needs to be careful who she trusts, as not everyone thinks like her.

Aries: 21 Mar – 20 Apr

The more attention you pay to good nutrition and health practices, the more resilient you will be, which is especially important at this time. Conserve your nervous and emotional energies, too. Stay calm and focused – it will greatly boost your inner reserves of stamina and fortitude.

Taurus: 21 Apr – 21 May

Watch for friction on the job, as the atmosphere or conditions could get a little tense, plus you could feel frazzled occasionally and react to situations in an emotional way. Soothe yourself and the atmosphere with calmness and patience and you will help promote smoother work flows.

Gemini: 22 May – 21 June

If you’re in an established union, a common focus with a special project, the joy of your children and sharing highlights or achievements with them, important decisions involving significant amounts of money, and making plans for a long-awaited goal will reinforce the loving ties and union between you.

Cancer: 22 June – 22 July

Household duties and chores will be hard work and could set a fast, strenuous tempo over the next few days. A simmering conflict in some quarters could erupt abruptly, presenting an ideal opportunity to deal with it directly, forthrightly and positively to ensure it is resolved long-term.

Leo: 23 July – 23 Aug

Surprisingly, this will be an expansive month socially – even if it is only online, where you could meet some interesting new people. Lay the foundations for friendships and enjoy yourself immensely with pleasing social companions, your friends and the friends of your partner and children.

Virgo: 24 Aug – 23 Sept

Auspicious trends on the job throughout the month should bring intriguing offers and rewarding results with your endeavours. Your relationship with a superior or a colleague in a senior position should be very positive and congenial, or will improve considerably.

Libra: 24 Sept – 23 Oct

A professional situation will throw light on your skills and talents. You will receive plenty of attention, recognition and praise and it should give your self-confidence and morale a boost. Extra money will come in, but there will be large outlays or small expenses that take funds out quickly.

Scorpio: 24 Oct – 22 Nov

If you’re in your own business, now is the ideal time to market your skills and expertise, your customers and clients will be supportive and only too happy to help pass your brand on. Be prepared for sudden requests from superiors too, which may increase your workload.

Sagittarius: 23 Nov – 21 Dec

Large commitments, or a target you are budgeting to reach, will call for a strict control of spending. There may be a few additional family and domestic outlays which need to be incorporated into your plans, but you will have a reasonable idea of how much money these will entail.

Capricorn: 22 Dec – 20 Jan

Younger people, siblings, neighbours and relatives will be looking to you for guidance. Your grounded and no-nonsense advice will be very much sought after, especially at this time. The breaking down of old structures are the order of the day and change is certainly in the air!

Aquarius: 21 Jan – 19 Feb

This month represents a period of reflection and soul-searching for you. It is probably that you will look deep into your heart, redefine what you want and set new goals. You will learn a considerable amount about yourself, other people and conditions in your life.

Pisces: 20 Feb – 20 Mar

Be prepared for hassles in the form of sudden extra chores or minor problems to be dealt with, especially at times when you can hardly squeeze another thing into what might feel like an already overloaded schedule. Friends will be extremely important to you this month.
