A baby born today has a Sun in Aries and a Moon in Scorpio.

Happy birthday for Thursday, April 12, 2018:
This year you open up to many possibilities, though clearly you like to spend time by yourself. You will explore your mind/body connection, and might find yourself in yoga classes as a result. If you are single, you could meet someone who is emotionally unavailable, especially in the time period before fall. Take your time getting to know any person in this period. If you are attached, the two of you often disappear with little explanation. You use these periods to enhance and cement your bond. PISCES reads you loud and clear.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You wake up ready to make a difference in a certain area of your life. How and where you decide to make waves could change. Remain sensitive to what is happening within your circle of friends. You might want to help someone discuss his or her feelings. Tonight: Make it personal.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Emphasize friendship and your long-term goals. Taking action in order to handle a problem or misunderstanding might seem natural. However, it would serve you to detach first and understand the different mechanisms at play here. Tonight: Ask and you shall receive.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

At times, you can be feisty and difficult. Think through a problem more carefully. A partner also could be unusually feisty, especially if you start talking about a sensitive issue. Take it one step at a time. Tonight: Make a point of spending more time with a special loved one.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Recognize that there are periods when you are far more sensitive than usual. Do not hold back but rather move forward with thought and deliberation. You will not tolerate any obstacle in your path. Express your caring in a meaningful manner. Tonight: Listen to your sixth sense.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Sometimes it is the smart move to act as if you are unreachable. Be somewhat less available than usual, and feel free to move forward with any matter involving joint finances or a particular bond. Also pay attention to a situation that is affecting a friend. Tonight: Out late.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Do not allow others to hold you up. It seems as if many people want some time with you. You are only one person with a limited amount of time. Your creativity comes into play, as you know what must happen. Express your concern in a meaningful way. Tonight: Let it all hang out.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You’ll dive into work and complete your to-do list quickly and efficiently. Freeing up some spare time might be delightful, as you probably need a break. You have been working very hard as of late. You know how to make others smile, so do it. Tonight: Run some errands first.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You see a situation develop, and you might have several instantaneous responses. One knee-jerk reaction allows you to approach the matter with creativity. See what can be done to make it the best experience possible. Tonight: Just be yourself and be less guarded.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Tension builds between you and someone else. You might not be able to disarm the situation immediately, but you will in the next 24 hours. Take your time working through different scenarios that could do the job. Spend some quality time at home. Tonight: At a favorite place.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Make calls and run errands. Though you might need to do some reading or working alone, your social side emerges. You often feel a need to express that side of your personality. Try to hold yourself back right now, even if just for a little while. Tonight: Hang out at a favorite haunt.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might want to defer to someone else who can handle a personal situation in an unusual way. You often feel as if you need to hold back, especially when it comes to spending. Learn to say “no” a little more often. Tonight: Be discreet yet clear about what you desire.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You wake up knowing that you are in your element today. What you plan to do with some free time could change as the day progresses. Loved ones and friends check in to see what you are up to. Inevitably, you might feel a bit pressured. Tonight: Start the weekend early.
