Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For April 18, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll be able to gain the advantage over a rival today, but you may first have to engage in a little deception, but that will be forgiven.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll want to keep things friendly today, even as the competition heats up. Follow the rules, be a good sport and learn from any setbacks.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are in little danger today of losing your way. Indeed, you are so secure right now that you can lead others out of some serious peril.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone may try to shut you down today, but you're not having any of it. You can remain calm and have your say at exactly the right moment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Take care that you aren't being so dramatic about what's happening to you today that others question if there is anything at stake.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're waiting for things to settle down a bit before taking advantage of an opportunity that will wait until you're ready to act.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You feel that you're headed in the right direction, but someone offers an alternative that proves more attractive than you might have thought.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're likely to learn something new today that you can put to immediate use to advance a cause you've only recently adopted.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Timing is everything today, and there are times in which you'll want to lie low and wait until the stars have aligned things in your favor.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll be engaged in a game of lost-and-found today that proves far more important than you had anticipated. You recover something of value.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A vision of the past has you caught between something you want to do and something you know you have to do. It's time to face the music.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Nothing is impossible today as long as it is something that allows you to employ one of your many considerable skills. Someone is watching.
