Daily Horoscope for April 23, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino
If Today is Your Birthday
You will be more emotionally sensitive than usual, especially abut anything said about you in a public forum. Therefore, develop a thick skin when you're outside the home, and drop your guard when you're among intimate friends and partners. Always give a strong response to anyone or anything a few days to process through your mind and emotions. You share a birthday with Roy Orbison, Shirley Temple and Dev Patel.
Aries (March 20-April 19) -- Think slowly, and be cautious of venting or making decisions when you're even vaguely upset. Between Mercury retrograde and your home planet Mars in the quicksilver sign Gemini, you could easily slip up on something simple that gets out of hand. Take your time, and get it right.

Taurus (April 19-May 20) -- The opinion others have of you doesn't need to be your opinion of yourself. Even better, you don't have to argue or prove anyone wrong. You're doing something courageous, even if it's a little different from your peers, and you cannot count on people to actually understand your choices. Pre-order your Taurus reading.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) -- If anyone in authority says something that hurts your feelings, try to let it roll off your back. Two parallel influences -- your sensitivity and a bit of aggression in the air -- present a challenging situation. Your role is to be mature, be the better person and think for the future.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -- You may be feeling an urge to travel far and wide, though you can scratch that itch today by feeding your soul. You seem to be hungry for art, philosophy or music, which would actually go well together. You won't need to go far to find something interesting and wholesome.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) -- This might be a good day for one of those conversations that needs to happen with a loved one or other partner. Avoid a confrontation of any kind, though. Sensitivity is running high, so be open-minded and ease back on any hypersensitivity. Listen, evaluate, and respond calmly.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) -- You can now get to the bottom of any feelings of hurt or loss, which will come mostly in the form of sharing your thoughts. Rather than inquiring into how someone else feels, describe some observations you've made about yourself. This will open the floor for others to do the same.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) -- Someone did the human race a disservice when they divided up consciousness between mind, body, emotions, spirit, and so forth. You experience all those things, though you're more than the sum of your parts. Any solution to a perceived problem must address your whole being.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) -- Sometimes you really can work things out in bed. Now might be the time, because the planets favor passion more than talking things out. If you care about someone, be generous with them, and offer them your trust. The world would be a happier place if this happened more often.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) -- You may be particularly sensitive to loved ones or partners asserting their views. That could mean taking personally what was not directed at you. The best approach is to be the bigger person, and let the scenario play out a little. You'll know by tomorrow what this is about.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -- It's one of those facts of human nature that we're rarely upset for the reason we think. However, it can be quite convincing that something is bothering you when it's really something else. Anger you're feeling about work may have more to do with your family than your coworkers or boss.
Aquarius Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- How you feel about yourself determines how you feel about the world -- not the other way around. If you're having misgivings about anything or anyone, start with yourself -- and give yourself a break. You're more sensitive than you let on, but you must never keep that from yourself.

Pisces Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're in rare form when it comes to charisma and appeal, even if you feel out of sorts. Take some space and time to explore the world. Physical activity would do you well, though for a Pisces, exercise must always be intelligent: yoga or a long walk near an ocean or river. Eric recently completed your Pisces reading.
