(No Ratings Yet)

BNN presents a weekly horoscope for April 14th – 20th.

Aries – this week you will likely become somewhat strange: you will start thinking outside the box and will likely come up with something for yourself! Be uncompromising! Do not take ‘no’ for an answer! Trust your instincts and make decisions with your heart! Those close to you will demand attention!

Taurus – stars say this week will be mostly governed by money: either you receive or you spend! Try to do something creative and you will be at peace! You will feel a great inflow of energy out of nowhere! Blame the stars for that. Do try to use this energy constructively or you may agitate someone!

Gemini – do not be hasty with your decisions: you do not yet know everything! On the other hand, if you look at your problem from a different perspective, you will find new opportunities! You will be very chatty this week. The search for answers will take up most of your time. You will find much understanding and sincerity in conversations with others.

Cancer – if you try to listen to others and be attentive in this endeavour, you will be able to see the road more clearly! Do not try to make big decisions! Stars say you must be open this week, not matter how hard it may seem! It is best to look reality in the eye and say things as they are!

Leo – try to be clear in your opinion this week: your words will carry doubled power, and they may work against you! Trust your intuition! You will be especially cautious and you may want to be certain in everything you do! But do not try to control everything: let everything run its course, and everything will be al-right!

Virgo – stars say you may change your views on some important matter this week! This shift will be caused by new information. Your patience will pay off! You will act with ‘I can do this’ in your mind! You should use all new opportunities that open up before you!

Libra – you may bravely enter the fray this week: you will win every duel! Your words will have special power! It is high time to conquer your place under the sun! The energy you will receive from the stars this week will be enough for great accomplishments! The latter include improving relationships with people!

Scorpio – the Moon will cause you to distance yourself from the person who is holding you down and keeping you confused! Maybe this is for the best. But people are inspired by your power and opinion. This is why many people will ask your advice on things. Do not let it get to you: only provide advice, do not try to solve problems for them!

Sagittarius – you will throw out everything you do not need out of your head this week (if you dare). You will see new opportunities! You just need to pull yourself together! You will feel a desire of adventure. You can try to satisfy it in your daily routine! Try to smile more often!

Capricorn – it is important to keep yourself together and maintain a balance (you have so much to do)! But you are ready for everything – you are a Capricorn after all! New ideas will start sprouting out of your head as though mushrooms after rain! Write them down. You may need some of them later on.

Aquarius – stars promise a big turn of events this week! This could mean a change of plans and hopes for the future! Unforeseen events may change your plans in the near future. Instead of sulking, try focusing on priorities and move forward! Perseverance will be a key factor!

Pisces – stars predict an internal conflict between reality and your ideals! Try talking to those close to you and everything will become clearer! You will have to make a decision based on intuition alone this week! Don’t worry – you intuition never fails you! If it ever does fail you, it will likely end up for the best…
