Capricorn Horoscope for Friday, April 10, 2020
Good luck trying to be the Ambassador of Peace, Cap. As the Moon enters a new Sign, you feel yourself being pulled in two very different directions. People who agree on an idea have completely different visions of how it should be used. A misunderstanding may turn angry if it`s serious enough. It`s up to you to take on the role of the middle man (or woman). For your own sake, do the math in pencil before signing in ink.
Being a loner is suddenly unappealing to you. Letting other people into your life may be hard at first, but you`ll get used to it in a hurry. You have an excellent recipe for stone soup that relies on other people`s leftovers, so why not invite everyone over for a party? You don`t have to trust everyone at once, Scorpio, but there`s no reason to be so judgmental, either. Maybe caution has worked to your advantage in the past, but you`ll only find the answer in hindsight. If you really want to do something, do it big.
If you let your guard down, what are you afraid you`ll find, Sag? Do whatever is in your power to tear away all pretense and illusion. The truth is blindingly beautiful. Try to minimize the cost of your inevitable victory. Just because you are ready to be honest doesn`t mean that everyone else is, too. You may have to tone down your methods for those who aren`t quite ready for them. Work on your delivery so that everyone can enjoy your message eventually.
Can you feel it, Libra? As the Moon moves into a new Sign, there is definitely something new in the air. Everywhere you go, you sense that change is ready to happen at any moment. Having a choice in life empowers you. If there was ever a time to be selfish, this is it. You have to be prepared to think for yourself and act in behalf of your best interests, especially if no one else is doing it.
Make sure you know all of the facts before you volunteer to be a part of something. You may say yes now, but you`ll kick yourself for it later. Compromise and concession set up the pattern for a continual drain on your resources. Don`t sign anything that isn`t crucial to current operations. If you feel yourself giving in to outside pressure, hurry up and find an ally on the inside. There may be more people on your side than you realize.
You have the ability to take even the smallest act and turn it into something huge, Leo. Being overly dramatic makes you the tallest thing in the landscape right now. As you proceed with your wacky plans, you act as a magnet for strange people and events, and you couldn`t be happier. Every occasion is brimming with possible adventure. Throw caution to the wind and don`t spend one minute worrying about what other people think of you. You are marvelous just the way you are!
Why are you so afraid that you are going to be taken advantage of, Taurus? You can see that there`s no shortage, but still you worry about being shortchanged. Slow down and take some time to assess the situation in a more accurate light. Let your feelings be known. By the time you leave the table, everyone should know where you stand and what you`re worth. The emphasis seems unnecessary now, but later on you`ll be glad that you`ve established yourself.
With all of the commotion going on around you lately, this is the kind of day you`ve been yearning for. You are in the fold, privy to all of the Universe`s secrets. You know all that there is to know, right? Well, there may be a few gaps in your knowledge, but you still have plenty of lessons to teach. Look behind the usual, trite motivations. Someone may be using you as a resource in order to discover you as a person. You should be flattered, Gemini.
You don`t have to go it alone if you don`t want to, Aquarius. You are happy to find someone with whom you have so much in common. As the Moon moves into a new Sign, the user and the used are co-conspirators, invalidating the ideas of blame and shame. Pragmatic relationships flourish in the spirit of cooperation. Become acquainted with a new partner on many levels. When you look back on this moment in the years to come, you won`t believe your luck.
Take some time to think about what can you do to help all of the people in your life. The current Moon Sign fills you with compulsive generosity. Perhaps your conscience is trying to atone for some unspecified sin. It`s good to give, but you may be disappointed if you expect to have your favors returned. The thank-you notes may not come rolling in, but you can rest easy tonight knowing that you did at least some good in the world.
There`s a lot going on right now, and you don`t have time to even gather your wits before the next big meeting. As the Moon moves into a new Sign, you feel like you`re a little fish in a very, very large pond. If you can`t handle the stress of it all, try to stay away from powerful people. Humor might save the day, but don`t try it unless your aim is perfect. Don`t fret too much -- your sense of balance should return to normal very soon.
According to the Gods of Etiquette, there`s definitely a right way and a wrong way to get the attention of other people. If you need to be persuasive, try understatement rather than overkill. There are subtle ways of showing what hot stuff you really are. The more you push someone else`s buttons, the less likely you are to gain access to their secrets. If you don`t get what you want by the end of the day, you probably didn`t want it that much anyway.
