Your daily horoscopes for Wednesday April 17, 2024

Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

Hey superstar, don’t let the bright stage lights blind you! With Mercury retrograde trading friendly fire with the ego-driven Leo moon, check your head as you take center stage. It’s okay to humblebrag a little, but watch for making others feel inferior in the process. Give credit where it’s due and shoutouts to supportive people who helped you make your way to the top. Tag someone on social media who could use a boost, and let your followers know just how talented they are. Showing others love will only bring you more praise in return.

Taurus Daily horoscope

Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

Emotional eating alert! Today’s trine between the moon and Mercury retrograde brings all the feels, but be careful not to brush them off because they’ll only come out sideways. If you catch yourself obsessing over a bakery’s almond croissants, take a moment to tune in. Free-writing, meditating or a cathartic text to a friend could help untangle the worrisome knots. And if you still want to head to the bakery, just go. Remember: There’s a distinct difference between enjoying a few of life’s pleasures and suppressing your emotions by stuffing down heavy foods and too much sugar. Lean on a loved one for extra support, and air your grievances to lighten this heavy burden.

Gemini Daily horoscope

Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

Your 1,001 friends are clamoring for your attention, but has one important relationship been getting short shrift? Clear your schedule and book some quality time for a catchup, whether you treat for dinner or have a long phone chat after work. You have a lot of exciting news to report, Gemini, but be sure to pass the talking stick back and forth. A potential collaboration could be in the cards. Already have more on your plate than you’re able to handle? Allow your enthusiasm to show when you hear these new ideas, but don’t make any promises today.

Cancer Daily horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

Invitations could fly in faster than you can hit “reply all” today, but don’t let FOMO prevent you from being discerning with your RSVPs. With a strong connection between the moon and Mercury retrograde today, you’ll need to prioritize instead of scattering your energy. Tasks that will help you complete your work and prioritize your health should be your only agenda items for now. Silver lining: Think how much more present you’ll be with friends when you’ve ticked off these administrative duties.

Leo Daily horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

Don’t make outrageous claims and promises today, Leo—not unless you can back up what you say with solid action. When it comes to getting the job done, charm won’t do the trick today. Everyone is counting on you to pull your weight. The only problem is you’re prone to distraction—AND you’re on deadline! Put your nose to the grindstone and stay focused. Persistence will pay off, maybe even in the form of a raise or promotion to a leadership role.

Virgo Daily horoscope

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

Your Spidey senses are extra heightened today, so leave no stone unturned as you dig for answers. Let your intuition guide you, Virgo, and pay attention to other people’s body language. There could be more going on here than meets the eye. If something doesn’t sit right with you, do some detective work to get to the bottom of this. Though you might not exactly like what you excavate, you’ll be glad you made this discovery now versus finding out the hard way later. If it’s time to cut ties with an individual or even an organization, you can do so now with your dignity still intact.

Libra Daily horoscope

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

If a relationship feels off-balance, bring the scales back to equilibrium. But don’t expect to come to any kind of understanding if you don’t communicate with each other. When you practice active listening and truly hear this person out, you may be reminded that nobody is perfect (including you!) and that compromise is an essential part of any partnership or friendship. Let bygones be bygones, and plan some quality time together. How about a Pilates class at a new studio and sushi dinner? A good workout will do you both a world of good and will get the conversation flowing again.

Scorpio Daily horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

Time to rub shoulders with a few influencers, Scorpio? It’s all about who you know today, and a well-connected friend might just open some exclusive doors for you. Remember: Good karma makes the world go round, so you’re not “burdening” people when you ask them to recommend you for something you’re more than qualified for. Reach out for an introduction, especially if you’re searching for a new gig. Decision makers may be more receptive under these career-focused skies. If you need to have an important talk with a client or higher-up, you can make inroads today.

Sagittarius Daily horoscope

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

Go ahead Sagittarius, peek through those rose-tinted aviators and let yourself swoon. No matter your current status, today’s Leo moon puts you in optimistic spirits about your love life. Give yourself permission to romanticize and daydream, allowing your heart to soften and expand. But don’t hit the accelerator just yet. Mercury is retrograde until April 25—and today the messenger planet is connecting to the moon. Ask questions, observe, show interest, but do something out of character for yourself and remain a little bit mysterious.

Capricorn Daily horoscope

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

You know better than to chase after every random squirrel, Capricorn. Today, lean in to your natural magnetism, which is more than enough to attract a key opportunity. With Mercury retrograde until April 25, it’s better to slow down, anyway. You could be pleasantly surprised by what you manifest when you hand the universe the wheel for the day. Need a confidence boost? Spend time with people who are likely to sing your praises. There’s no shame in getting an infusion of validation, which has been proven to boost dopamine levels. Return the kindness with a sincere compliment or a glowing LinkedIn testimonial.

Aquarius Daily horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

Excited as you feel about a new connection, make sure you aren’t hoisting anyone onto a pedestal. Today, the Leo moon gets pinged by Mercury retrograde, which makes it impossibly easy to project qualities onto people that haven’t actually developed yet. In an existing relationship, you may feel motivated to reconfigure your roles or have a no-BS conversation about the future. Go in lightly, Aquarius, because this muddling starmap could cause you to overlook people’s generosity. On the flipside, maybe YOU could use a friendly nudge in a more future-forward direction. Your sign can be famously skittish about commitment. What’s holding you back?

Pisces Daily horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 17

Give yourself an inside-out glow-up, Pisces, as the moon shines in Leo and your sixth house of self-care. With Mercury retrograde chiming in, you need to dig in and find some concrete methods to solidify your routines. Skip the extra flat white and opt for a matcha latte or a decaffeinated herbal concoction with antioxidant and immune-boosting properties. Stressful day at the office? Quit fuming and go for a brisk walk to clear your head. A bit of mindfulness sprinkled throughout your workday is just what the cosmos ordered. You want to respond calmly instead of reacting at a knee-jerk level. If that seems impossible, take five!
