Horoscope: April 9, 2018

By Mariana Rivas

A baby born today has a Sun in Aries and a Moon in Capricorn if born before 2:15 a.m. (ET). Afterward, the Moon will be in Aquarius.

Happy birthday for Monday April 9, 2018:
This year could be a game changer if you play it right. Be open to intense conversations and debates. You will gain a clearer understanding of how others interact, as well as how to deal with their energy. Be more direct in asking for what you want, especially professionally. If you are single, take your time getting to know a potential suitor before committing. Time is your ally. If you are attached, you have a tendency to go overboard and put your sweetie on a pedestal. Try to be more realistic, and you both will benefit. AQUARIUS usually has important news for you.
