Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For April 22

Our HuffPollstrology chart helps keep you up to date on the latest poll results, along with the latest horoscope predictions, and the latest online political betting lines - and will hopefully help the polling junkies in the media keep polls in the proper perspective.

You could be so, so be on top of your game. In a competition, you could astound others with your prowess. At a meeting, you could pull a similar 'blinder'. All that said, you could be slightly wrong-footed by someone a little younger, whose mastery of a technical or foreign language is greater than your own. Domestic change might be made necessary by the arrival of someone much younger too. It might even be necessary for you to help move furniture. (horoscopes.co.uk)

A partner or close friend's shock announcement could leave you reeling. This might actually be in the nicest of ways. At a different level, you could find a bargain or make a domestic alteration that proves labour and time-saving. A surprise event planned for late in the day might require you to tell a small white lie to throw someone off-scent. (horoscopes.co.uk)

Gallup Tracking Poll

You are going out of the way to steer well clear of people who are likely to tie you down. This is a time of personal growth, new insights and better times to come if you allow yourself to step across old fears. You will head straight to the heart of the matter and could be candid to the point of bluntness. Your direct honesty can be unnerving to more sensitive, thin-skinned companions. Don't try to force others into accepting your viewpoint. (Daily Mail)
