Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For April 09, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is not the time to pass your responsibilities to someone else. You can solicit help, surely, but don't abandon your efforts.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may find that a more creative approach to a stubborn problem allows you to move forward at a faster pace, and that's a good thing.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A lack of concentration can be blamed for an error that sets you back today -- but fortunately this is only temporary. Don't be frustrated.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Self-governing proves the key to a difficult dynamic between you and others today. It's as simple as controlling yourself under stress.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You will remember something you were told a very long time ago and realize that it can be applied immediately to a situation you are now facing.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- As the clock keeps ticking, you must find a way to make use of every available moment. You're very likely going to have to eat on the run.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Don't be fooled by appearances today -- or by those who would use them to put themselves in what seems to be an advantageous position.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can put all the various pieces of a sensory puzzle together in an effective way today. What you see, hear and feel all counts.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The weather may not cooperate with you today, but you can avoid any serious problems by making a very subtle change in your game plan.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have a hard time maintaining focus today, as there are distractions everywhere that "speak" to you. Discipline is the key.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're going to have to find a way to vent your built-up emotions today in a manner that doesn't rub anyone the wrong way or provoke outrage.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Thinking that you've gotten past a certain obstacle and that it no longer threatens to slow you down may prove a costly mistake.
