Huffpollstrology: Candidates' Horoscopes, Polls And More For April 23

Polls have come to dominate the media's horse race coverage of political campaigns. Pundits and reporters constantly use them to tell us who's hot and who's not -- but skip over the fact that plummeting response rates and variables like undecided voters and margins of error and often render these polls useless as anything other than lightweight diversions on par with horoscopes and political betting lines. 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.

Your nervous system could be under duress. A younger person might suggest an interesting and novel alternative therapy. Involvement with younger people or with those who are technically literate, could be challenging. You might not be sure that a system will work as smoothly as they believe. Experience might tell you that the time-scale is impractical.

It is said that when the going gets tough, then the tough get going - which you're likely to do now. It's often forgotten that those of your sign can show extraordinary sensitivity too though. Having tuned in to someone's acute distress, you could be in supercharged mode in trying to make their life better. At a different level entirely you could be challenged by a colleague, who finds your design and artistic tastes at odds with theirs.

A professional arrangement may have reached a turning point. You may now needs to make a decision. Two good friends could provide essential support. Their special gifts complement one another. It seems one has the ability either to see into the future or to work with new technology. The other may have considerable design skill. You might need both to help you with a professional challenge.

Stress from overworking can have you feeling weaker than usual today. You might be tempted to stay at home, get some rest and recoup your energies. Do this if you can, dear Leo. Otherwise, you may not be able to give your project the concentration it needs, and therefore may not accomplish as much as you think you should. If you feel you can't stay home, try to work alone if you can. That way you won't be distracted.

You might be feeling a little gloomy today, dear Virgo, and you probably have no idea why. It might be a good idea to retrace your steps for the past day or so, then look within to see if anything you may have seen could have awakened unconscious memories from the past. If this is the case, then what a relief! Release the traumas from the past and you'll feel like a ten-ton weight has lifted off your shoulders.

A project that you're rather excited about could require some intense work alone today, dear Scorpio. You might sometimes feel as if the four walls are closing in on you, but you need to concentrate in order to get the best possible results. You'll also need to take occasional breaks in order to clear your head. Nonetheless, at the end of the day you're likely to be quite happy with what you've accomplished. Go to it!
