Your daily horoscope for Thursday April 13, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
If you’re hitting a string of yellow lights around a work project, don’t wait for others to flash the go-ahead. While you may not be able to race forward on the whole thing by yourself, there’s plenty you can advance on your own. As today’s ambitious quarter moon in Capricorn lands in your professional tenth house, you’ll settle for any kind of progress. See if you can’t move SOME of the pieces forward. That way, when you do get the checkered flag, you’ll be ready to rev into action.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
You won’t have much patience for people’s equivocating as a progress-driven quarter moon lands in Capricorn and your straight-shooting ninth house. And if someone’s dragging their feet on a team effort? Grrr. But even if you wrapped up your part last week, stay sensitive to others’ challenges. They might be dealing with some personal struggles that you’re not privy to. When you do communicate, start by asking how they’re doing, and THEN you can dive into business.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
Subtlety isn’t merely an art form, Gemini. It’s a skill that may require a little practice on your part today. The sensual Capricorn moon in your erotic eighth house comes with a code-red intensity alert. But because it’s a moderating quarter moon, the last thing you want to do is come on too strong. Play a little cat and mouse game for titillation’s sake. This will work like a charm so long as you don’t veer to the opposite extreme and become impossible to pin down.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
You’re very much focused on someone close to you today as the quarter moon in Capricorn shines its mindful beams into your relationship zone. But adjust your “nurturing outreach” to match the level of support requested. You might believe that this person NEEDS your help or involvement, but it’s entirely possible that they’re handling things just fine. If you’ve been waiting for a good moment to pitch somebody on a collab, start warming them up to the idea today, but don’t show your entire hand.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
Nobody loves rushing in for loved ones more than you, o’ magnanimous Leo. But today’s quarter moon in Capricorn blows the timeout whistle on any helpfulness that’s also draining your reserves. Your generosity is a wonderful quality, and that won’t disappear if you take a self-care break. Let people fend for themselves while you cuddle up with a good book or guided meditation. You’ll be more centered and resilient once you’ve refilled your own tanks.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
Whether you’re at the office, a buzzy coffee shop or hitting the road, you’re a Virgo on a mission today! But that high-key enthusiasm could be a strong brew under the moderating quarter moon in Capricorn. While you don’t need to downplay your excitement, give people a chance to warm up to your ideas. If you want to get them on board, present the vision the way YOU would want to be pitched: with solid facts and compelling cases to match the glamorous branding.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
You’re quick to smooth ruffled feathers, but playing peacekeeper could interrupt an important step in everyone’s growth process. Today, the quarter moon in Capricorn shines its balancing beams into your sensitive fourth house. You may feel ready to hash out a conflict you’ve been avoiding. But if not, don’t try to force resolution. Let people know that you need some time to process it on your own before discussing further. You’re allowed to set the pacing, Libra.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
When you decide to speak up for yourself, your words can pack a wallop, Scorpio. (Oh, that notorious S.T.I.N.G.) But under today’s balancing quarter moon in your communication zone, what you consider self-defense could come across as a vitriolic personal attack. No need to clam up—just put yourself in people’s shoes. Could it be that they misread YOUR signals too?
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
Numbers don’t lie, Sagittarius. So if you’ve been numbing yourself to facts you don’t like seeing, today’s quarter moon in your economic-stability zone could force you to take an honest look. But don’t assume the worst! While there may be a few figures on your balance sheet that need (moderate to vast) improvement, necessity has always been the divine mother of invention for your optimistic sign. Where are you leaving money on the table, Archer? A profitable path could be right under your nose.
Capricorn (December 22-January 18) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
Did you get excited and jump the gun, Capricorn? That’s okay. Today’s clear-eyed quarter moon in Capricorn helps you analyze the situation from a balanced perspective. While there may still be an opportunity worth pursuing, what you DON’T need is to feel like Sisyphus pushing that boulder up the hill. Step one might be lining up support for this potential venture. Everything gets easier when you stop carrying the weight alone.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
Cut yourself some slack today, Aquarius, especially if you’re running on fumes. Before la luna heads into your sign, it lingers as a quarter moon in Capricorn moon in your restful twelfth house. So allow yourself some time to do…nothing! While there are responsibilities that can’t be delegated, they might not be as numerous—or onerous—as you’re making them out to be. Slow down and stay mindful in any task or project you undertake. And if you can switch from administrative duties to creative brainstorming mode, all the better.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Thursday April 13
As much as you love connecting to your fellow humans, socializing can be draining for your sensitive sign. Today, the grounded quarter moon in Capricorn brings some level-headed energy to your community zone, reminding you to pace your interactions. Be selective about invitations you accept and make sure you’re not doing anything out of obligation. And if you know a certain energy vampire will be in attendance, RSVP no!
