Today’s horoscopes - Sunday, April 16


ARIES (March 21-April 19). The day will be marked by quiet satisfaction. There is much that is working in the rhythm and rituals of daily life that you’ve set up for yourself. You’ll tend to and improve upon such things today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your emotional life will travel a winding, foggy road today, but despite — or perhaps because of — the precariousness of this mysterious route, there are pleasures to be found.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). ”There are no stupid questions,” they say — not entirely true. But if a question leads to a better one, who’s to judge? So fear not, ask away, and if you don’t get an answer, that will tell you something, too.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Even as you dedicate your efforts without credit and devote yourself to the good of the team, your individual contribution will be recognized. The healthy dynamic at play here is made possible through reciprocity and mutual trust.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve a gift for being supportive, even unconditionally so. You’ll live there today, in your choice to be there for others, ready with an unfailingly positive, constructive contribution.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The day will be marked by a state of awareness and ease. You’ll carry this with you regardless of your company or environment. So commanding is your presence, you have the ability to relax all who are around you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve been meaning to get together with certain people, and now you’ll make a bigger effort to realize those intentions. Physical closeness and the warmth of proximity matter.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What good are theories if nothing works? And what good is practice if everything works, but no one knows why? Today it works, you know why and you can repeat it to get the same results. This is truly something to celebrate.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). For the most part, you feel responsible for what you do. However, there’s a lot that happens automatically that you’re not even aware of until someone points it out. Such an instance could surprise you today.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In love, it’s not what is said but (SET ITAL) how (END ITAL) it is said that will matter. This is why the written word is not the best way today. Text doesn’t convey tone, and with the current state of Mercury, tone matters immensely.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A powerful collective harmony is at work today. The remarkable thing about what you accomplish together is that it will happen with little discussion or planning; your group will feel and move as one.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your faith that good things are coming your way is partly what makes it so. Also, your relationship with a happy air sign (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius) will contribute to your good fortune.
