Horoscope for April 16, 2012

By Bernice Bede Osol

Although the aspects indicate some kind of increase in your material worth in the year ahead, unless you make yourself go after things in a big way, it will only be nominal. Set your sights on one major goal and go full tilt.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may enter the day with high hopes, but unless something good happens to help you keep that positive attitude, the slightest upset will send you into a funk.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Upon occasion you're apt to ignore those who have done the most for you, while rewarding the undeserving in hopes of getting their attention. This approach will do nothing for you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- In order to get others to do your bidding, you might try to use some flattery. However, if the recipient doesn't deserve your words of praise, you'll get nowhere. Sincerity will have the greatest impact.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you run into someone who can help you in your career, the use of levity could prove counterproductive. Keep your conversation on a serious plane.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll be of no help if you tell an advice seeker only what she or he wants to hear. You'll do more for the other party if you are frank and forthright.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Even if the truth is painful, be sure to base your judgment calls on facts. Decisions based on easy outs might make you feel good, but if they do nothing for you, they're worthless.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Don't think it won't anger your friends if you give them cause to think you're nice only to those who can help you get what you want. Treat everyone with the same courtesy.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Even if members of the opposite sex usually find you quite appealing, don't mistake the signals and think someone is making a pass at you. It could prove to be embarrassing.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Even if you don't have any current plans to use them, your pragmatic skills will be more pronounced than your artistic ones. Put them to work for you if you can.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It's important to follow through on any promises you made to another, even if it now causes you a bit of inconvenience. Doing so will greatly enhance your reputation.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you are penny-wise and pound foolish, don't be surprised if you discover a lot of holes in your books when it comes time to take stock.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Unless you are materially motivated, it isn't likely that you'll use the full force of your talents. However, you'll shift into full gear when there is something in it for you.
