Daily horoscope for April 20, 2023
Rebirths aren’t always easy. With the New Moon rising in fiery Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, phoenix energy inspires us to reinvent ourselves. The Moon slips into comfort-focused Taurus, and obstacles may push us back into our comfort zones. The radiant Sun follows suit, entering Taurus at 4:14 am EDT, asking us to slow down and make a plan before jumping in. Be careful — the Sun then squares destructive Pluto, shaking our confidence in any plans or changes. Slowing down is okay!

March 21-April 19
The old you is being left in the past. You may have once settled for less than what you deserved, but now, overcoming obstacles in your financial or security sector can show you how you DO deserve the best! Accepting half-measures or not empowering yourself when it matters can lead you to repeated disappointment, and that’s not the person that you are anymore. This personal evolution may feel nerve-wracking at first, but it’s just you transforming into the person you want to be.
April 20-May 20
A dream may encourage you to achieve your more challenging goals. Be ready for a spiritual experience that strengthens your belief in yourself and potentially highlights lifestyles that you thought were out of reach. You may visualize yourself in a future career or living situation that suits you more — perhaps you didn’t even realize how much you wanted it until you saw yourself in it. Don’t hold yourself back because of inexperience! Instead, make concrete steps to gain the experience you need.
May 21-June 20
A fresh group of friends may be changing you for the better. You may have recently started working somewhere different or joined a class that allows you to spend more time around others — or you could even meet these pals in an online forum or chat room. Today, let your peers inspire you to be something that they’ve shown you the benefits of, even if you didn’t previously know it was possible. Being the new person can feel scary, but trust yourself.
June 21-July 22
Your public persona could be moments from receiving a makeover. Other people may see you in a different light once you prove yourself in some way or earn praise from a community. This new reputation can feel burdensome or like something that you have to live up to in the future, but in reality, others are simply recognizing how you’ve grown as a person and the great things that you’re capable of when you put your mind to them. Don’t be afraid of praise!
July 23-August 22
Learning about foreign places can expand your horizons. You are now able to learn from other cultures, even if you don’t necessarily have a ticket to go anywhere. You may learn about new cultures through foreign movies, talking to those of cultures, or even taking a class. Few people can travel to a different country at the drop of a hat, but you can still build your skill set and grow your mind. Be respectful — and be willing to share about your own culture.
August 23-September 22
There may be a project that you’re working on in secret at the moment. You might be worried that others could distract or discourage you if you let them into your process, and that’s okay. Not everyone deserves a window into your personal projects, and you’re probably able to get more progress made here without others butting in. While other plans might be improved by a second pair of eyes, this likely isn’t one of them. Trust your instincts to attain results that you’ll love!
September 23-October 22
Partnerships are more important than ever! The people who push you to improve yourself, don’t let you get stuck, and help you confront the truth might be the ones that you’re now meant to spend time with. Someone who’s willing to call you on any excuses and propel you toward your goals can provide you with a lot of good momentum. It may not be comfortable in the moment, but you’ll likely be happy that they were honest with you in the future.
October 23-November 21
A fresh routine can help you leave the past behind. There may be a situation or even a person that you are working hard to forget or move on from, and finding a new daily practice to occupy your mind is a good method for washing any issues out of your life. You might be mourning the hole that was left in your life, but letting this negative history go is for the best. Don’t run to your comfort zone: stand firm!
November 22-December 21
You might now be creatively avoiding traps that were set for you. Your responsibilities or difficulties can seem exceedingly challenging — perhaps hidden enemies are actually placing obstacles in your way to slow you down. Luckily, you know just how to handle them, and the universe is helping you make a plan that can thwart any attempts to shake you. You know what you want and where you’re going, even if you must make a temporary detour along your path there.
December 22-January 19
Tradition means different things to everyone at this time. It’s possible that you’ve been continuing a family practice without knowing the reason, or you’re potentially reviving an older pattern. Some traditions are meant to be left in the past, while others can strengthen your connection to those who come from the same place or culture that you do. This can be a physical place or an emotional place, as long as it helps you to feel like you’re a part of something bigger.
January 20-February 18
Familial disapproval can induce doubts today. You may have communicated your plans or dreams to your family, and instead of receiving support or encouragement, you were met with negativity and worst-case hypotheticals. Your family may mean well, trying to protect you by showing you the cons instead of the pros, but it’s likely that you’ve already thought about the cons and know what you’re capable of. Even if they mean well, you don’t have to pay attention to their pessimism.
February 19-March 20
Fear can stand in the way of your present progress. You may be rebuilding a foundation for yourself and trying not to make the same mistakes that you made in the past, but anxiety might still entrap you. That said, you’ve grown since then, so you have the knowledge to avoid the pitfalls. Still, be wary of the temptation to hide away! Remind yourself of all you can accomplish, and remember that you’re strong enough to withstand any longings that come your way.
