Horoscope for April 23, 2012

By Bernice Bede Osol

If you minimize frivolous pursuits and instead spend your time working on worthy endeavors, you'll be rewarded quite handsomely in the year ahead. It's a period when you can make many good things happen.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Decisions based on "quickie" solutions will likely be too fragile to withstand the test of time. When it comes to something important, base your judgments on enduring, tested factors.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Don't attempt to take on a do-it-yourself project unless you are well trained to handle the job, or at least have someone with know-how to help you out and back you up.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Demanding others to do what you won't or can't do yourself could result in some angry responses if you happen to pick someone who is willing to stand up against you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Letting a misunderstanding between you and your mate linger and fester is asking for additional trouble. The sooner you kiss and make up, the better.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Even if the offender deserves it, don't criticize him or her in front of others if at all possible. Unfortunately, if onlookers don't know what happened, it could make you look bad.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- When it comes to your commercial dealings, take nothing for granted, even the small points. These could be the very issues that could cause a host of trouble.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Instead of insisting that everything go your way, you should strive to be cooperative with the wishes of others. If you don't and something goes wrong, you'll have to accept all the blame.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It's to your advantage to tell things as they really are, without stretching the facts just to make your story more colorful. Even tiny embellishments could cause trouble.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Although normally you're a pretty generous person, you might be hesitant to part with anything of value unless you are guaranteed to get back something in return.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You'll only hamper your chances for success if you do something that you would later regret merely for pride's sake. Don't let vanity or presumption get in the way.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you want to have your views respected by others, you must not be close-minded about theirs. Treat what they have to say with due consideration, and your opinions will be given the same courtesy.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Be hopeful about what you take on, but by the same token don't depend on Lady Luck to do your bidding. A concerted effort on you part will be required.
