Today's Horoscope

MOON ALERT After 1:45 p.m. avoid shopping or making important decisions. The moon is in Taurus.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Discussions with others will be particularly sweet and tender today, especially with family members because you feel especially softhearted and sympathetic. (Even Aries warriors have their gentle hearts.) You might also envision elegant redecorating ideas!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Don't be hard on yourself today if you drift off into dreamland or catch yourself fantasizing a lot. It's that kinda day. (Call it a mental health day.) However, in discussion with others, you'll be very dialed in to where they're coming from. (You're in the zone and you can read their minds.)

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

If shopping today, you'll be tempted to go overboard buying beautiful, elegant, luxurious items. If you have to make important financial decisions, make sure they are grounded in reality and not just wishful thinking. Listen to that tiny voice in the back of your mind.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

This is a peaceful, easy-going day for the most part. You feel quite relaxed and laid-back in all your dealings with others. In fact, you feel unusually sympathetic and interested in their welfare. It's as if something has awakened your nurturing mode.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your idealism is aroused today, which is why you feel sympathetic to those who are less fortunate. Of course, the flip side to this is you might also appreciate how fortunate you are to be who you are and have what you have. (Contentment is everything because negativity is wanting things to be different than the way they are.)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Two options appeal to you today: If you can help a friend, you will. Alternatively, you will also feel happy to join forces with others, perhaps through a charitable society, to help relieve the suffering of someone. Just do whatever you can do.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might develop a crush on your boss today. Or you might develop a crush on an authority figure or celebrity whom you might never meet. Crushes are fun because we like the way they make us feel. (The next best thing is dark chocolate.)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, give yourself an opportunity to see lovely places. Visit parks, museums, art galleries, beautiful boutiques or an architectural building that inspires you. Enjoy!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your sympathetic concern for others might tempt you to give away the farm today. While it is noble and good to be helpful to those in need, you also have to take care of yourself and those who depend upon you. It's always a juggling act.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You find it easy to deal with others with great compassion and tenderness today. You feel selfless and truly concerned for those who have less than you. You might feel equally sympathetic to a close friend or partner. (It's easy to be gentle and tolerant today.)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You'll find it rewarding if you have a chance to help others through your work today. All Aquarians have an impulse to make the world a better place and today you might discover a way of doing this, even if it is within the smaller confines of your job or whatever it is you are doing.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Romance is the stuff of movies today. Love at first sight is entirely possible but it could be temporary because that's how it sometimes works. Beauty and illusion are powerful influences, which means it's a great day to be creative and artistic. Relations with children will be sweet and gratifying.


Singer/actress Whitney Houston (1963-2012) shares your birthday. You are convincing and a tower of strength to those around you. You are courageous and determined once you have set your goals. You like to be well-prepared and will educate yourself for any endeavour. (You do your homework.) You are also a giving, generous person. Work hard to build or construct something this year because your rewards will soon follow.
