Horoscopes for the week of 4/17

From Mystic J; Permanent resident of Room 1313, Hollywood Tower Hotel.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
Most hummingbirds migrate during colder months, but some stay behind and somehow manage to survive harsh winters. Whether you stay or migrate, do more than simply survive.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Roses may smell good and be the epitome of love or desire, but they also have thorns that are rarely considered. Perhaps your dreams are the same way: lovely but a bit prickly if you don’t know how to handle them.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Admire dogs for the way they trust and enjoy the simple things. Walk into life without fear, for though evil may happen, those who trust and love with abandon may find unexpected rewards.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Though some fear that robots might replace humans in low-level jobs, I don’t fear that, because a robot doesn’t have the same compassion or quick wit a human might show in an emergency situation.

Leo (July 23-August 22)
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t dream big. Bruce Wayne started as an orphan; Superman started as a stranded infant. Everyone has a strand of greatness within.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Take a moment out for a bit of peace while pursuing your hobby. Don’t try to become the best this week. Just acknowledge where you are and how far you’ve come, and enjoy this moment.

Libra (September 23-October 23)
This is your week to change a cycle within your family. Whether of abuse, poverty or racism, you can make a choice that will change the entire dynamic of those around you for the better.

Scorpio (October 24-November 21)
Allow yourself to be in love without consequence. Embrace the possibility that no feeling can top that moment of emotional bliss, and stop trying so hard to “be in love.” Simply be.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Penguin society does not admonish the father who cares for his young. Celebrate the legacy of penguins’ redefining masculinity by finding that long-dormant nurturing energy within yourself.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Never leave the house without your keys, your wallet, your water bottle, a granola bar, and a sense of the feminism that the world needs in order to thrive. Smash the patriarchy.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Ideas like cake pops and bottled water seemed silly in their time, but they grew to be a part of the fabric of the world as we know it. All ideas have value, even if we don’t see the merit right away.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)
So what if you’re a small fish in a big pond? That doesn’t mean you’re alienated, nor does it mean that you don’t matter. It just means that you’re small. Swim downward in your tuna net and be free.
