Your daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
Is that your heart on your sleeve, Aries? You’re more known for your straight-shooting answers than for offering a shoulder to cry on, but today’s stars might turn you into a bit of a mushball. (And no, it’s not a wardrobe malfunction.) With the generous Sun aligned with healing comet Chiron in your sign, you totally understand the power of simply holding space for someone without doling out advice, constructive criticism or tough love. Listen, acknowledge, support: Just being there for a friend or colleague is the most valuable thing you can do.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
There’s no broom on the market big enough to sweep an 800-pound elephant under the rug. If you’re facing a challenging issue, it’s time to acknowledge it and start dealing with it. Today’s cosmic alignment of the bold Sun and healing comet Chiron in your twelfth house of introspection gives you the courage to confront this with a mix of self-compassion AND your signature no-B.S. attitude. Take the first step by getting honest with yourself about how this situation is making you FEEL.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
Release your defenses and embrace some good old-fashioned vulnerability today, Gem. While you relish being the go-to person for sage advice or the latest trends, that’s not what people admire most about you. Today, the authentic Sun merges with healing comet Chiron in your friendship sector, creating a perfect opportunity to shed your “I’ve got it all together” facade. Try something different by allowing others to provide YOU with support. Receptivity is a strength.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
When you’ve got so many balls in the air, Cancer, it’s only natural that one of them might drop. And if that happens, don’t get all flustered. Just stop, pick it up and, if you can, make a little jest about it. The thing NOT to do: Pretend you’ve got it all under control if you don’t. Today’s planetary newsflash: No one expects you to be “flawless,” and when you show your human side, people will actually have more respect for you.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
Don’t assume that everyone with a different opinion is your adversary, Leo. Such absolute beliefs tend to create barriers, not connections. With the Sun, your ruling planet, aligned with healing comet Chiron in your ninth house of inclusivity and ideologies today, you have an opportunity to connect with someone from a vastly different background or who holds divergent beliefs. Make an effort to listen actively and empathetically. You might not change anyone’s perspective, but you could gain valuable insights from the exchange.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
Things are heating up today, and that warmth isn’t just from the rising spring temps. As the bold Sun aligns with healing comet Chiron in your eighth house of intimacy and transformation, you may be feeling a strong and irresistible energy radiating from within. This is a great time to clear your schedule and plan a romantic evening with your partner, or to put yourself out there and attend a gathering. Who knows, you may even make a deep and meaningful soul connection with someone new. Don’t hold back, Virgo!
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
Today, an empowering alignment of the loving Sun and healing Chiron in your seventh house of dynamic duos can help you get a wobbly relationship back on its feet. Remember, Libra: It’s not about who’s “right” or “wrong” or even “who started it.” Every partnership is a two-way street, and if things have gotten off-track, it will take both of you to sort it out. If you’re unattached, take a moment to ask yourself what one thing you might do differently to manifest different results—then take action.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
The devil—and perhaps a way to work out some of your anxiety—is in the details today, Scorpio. Under an empowering mashup of the creative Sun and healing Chiron in your sixth house of organization, systems and service, shift your focus from “what’s in it for me?” to “how can my talents make a difference to others?” Then, as you find small ways to contribute, take time to savor each moment. The benefit to you: You can become more aware of your thoughts as you slowly and mindfully go about your day.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
Beauty is NOT just skin-deep, Archer, especially when you allow yourself to feel gorgeous just because you’re you! Today’s empowering alignment of the creative Sun and healing Chiron in your fifth house of love and glamour helps you unlock a signature style that resonates with your soul. This isn’t about artificially making yourself up to conform to someone else’s standards of attractiveness. It’s about discovering your genuine look and voice and sharing it with the world in a way that inspires others to revel in their own awesomeness.
Capricorn (December 22-January 18) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
Even the highest-achieving Capricorn can’t be all things to all people, and today’s stars send a reminder alarm to stop even trying. Under a self-empowering alignment of the Sun and healing Chiron in your foundational fourth house, it’s important to put your own needs and those of your closest connections ahead of all other agenda items. If you agreed to something that’s already giving you anxiety, reschedule it. You don’t have to force it!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
Some people are committed to being unhappy—and bringing everyone else down with them in the process. And even you, the humanitarian of the zodiac, can’t do anything to break through that wall. Today features an enlightening alignment of the brilliant Sun and the healing comet Chiron in your social third house. As the clouds part, you might realize that a better question to ask than “what can I do to help this person?” is “why do I keep getting sucked in by them?” It’s okay to walk away, and when they are vampiring your energy, it’s actually necessary.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday April 5
Money can be the root of all evil or an incredible energy for transformation. Under an empowering alignment of the generous Sun and alchemical Chiron in your second house of finances and values, you can turn a brewing “crisis” into an opportunity to forge a deeper connection. If money has become a source of tension between you and your partner or a friend, share how you feel about it, then invite them to do the same. It might not be resolved today, but at least you’ll have initiated the discussion.
