Daily Horoscope for April 24, 2017 | By Eric Francis Coppolino
If Today is Your Birthday
Make sure you live to please yourself, honoring your own goals and desires. Be conscious about making decisions that are subconsciously designed to make other people happy, such as authority figures or partners. It will be easy to lose yourself, but if you are honest and sincere about what you want from life, just as easy to find yourself. You share a birthday with Barbra Streisand, Shirley MacLaine and Cedric the Entertainer.
Aries (March 20-April 19) -- Given the choice whether to be diplomatic and strategic, or just plain argumentative, the first one will serve you better. Yet to overcome the temptation to give someone a piece of your mind, it'll help if you think of the future. Closer to the point, respect is appropriate all the time.

Taurus (April 19-May 20) -- Err on the side of fulfilling your own purpose rather than doing what someone else thinks is best for you. Yes, they're entitled to their opinion, though nobody else is actually living your own life. You cut the apron strings long ago, but like weeds, sometimes you must keep trimming. Pre-order your Taurus reading.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) -- Mars in your sign is describing a turning point in your life. You've been getting the message to ask yourself which way you're really headed. You may see this as an either/or split. It's not so simple. For now, the most important thing is leaving yourself room to grow.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -- Be on the mark today when dealing with superiors or anyone who's in an official capacity. Take things one step at a time and measure your words. The burden is on you to be the broad-minded person, who is capable of balancing personal priorities with professional ones.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) -- You may be called upon today to come up with a winning strategy. Or it may work out that you're the only one up to the task. Bring your considerable knowledge and experience to the table, and consult with those more knowledgeable than you on specific questions you have.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) -- Be meticulous about a financial matter, and show some initiative in getting the process started. You'll need to sort out carefully where personal material ends and business questions begin. It's often a hazy line, though if you take care of money first, the personal material will be easier to sort.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) -- Take your time and appreciate what you've learned so recently, and what you're feeling as a result. Currently you have a perspective on yourself other than the usual relationship-oriented view that you take. You're a whole person, not half of a relationship. Remember how that feels.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) -- Be patient as you resolve a work-related issue. You're the person who will be counted on for your innovation and creativity, and it'll help if you give yourself time to find the right solution. Think of yourself as an inventor: use persistence, commitment and honor errors as hidden intention.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) -- Saturn is showing you how much you can do with a little. Yes, it's the American way to claim that conservation is unpatriotic, which was fantastic while it lasted. Here in the 21st century, the real leaders will be those who hum that tune, "As we economize, efficiency is multiplied."
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -- Set aside family politics and do your thing. You don't need to negotiate for your freedom: that is, to choose your work, or how to live, or what to wear. This is not, I repeat, not, about being selfish. What we're talking about is nobody's business but your own.
Aquarius Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- The way the astrology looks this week, you need a plan, with a schedule, a budget, and with some shock absorber in the form of various backup ideas. Mercury retrograde is like a spring that keeps popping, and it'll help to have some tried-and-true simple solutions at the ready. Eric recently completed your Aquarius reading. Get instant access!

Pisces Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Mercury retrograde in your house of finances is not making things any easier, though it's compelling you to think more cleverly. If you keep close contact with partners and colleagues, you'll be able to work through anything. The key is staying a step or two ahead of yourself. Eric recently completed your Pisces reading.
