Today's horoscope, Aug. 27

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 26/8/2014 (1088 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions until 5 p.m. today. After that the moon moves from Virgo into Libra.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Today there is a moon alert so to be careful. Social plans, sports events and playful times with children might suffer from delays and shortages. Fortunately, you are in an efficient, productive frame of mind. As Chekhov said, "I can do this! I can do this!"


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You are the financial wizard of zodiac. Therefore, pay attention to the moon alert above to avoid bad business deals for a good part of this day. This particularly applies to real-estate deals or shopping for home and family. Don't be hasty.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

This is a playful day and you're in the mood! More specifically, you're in the mood to flirt with someone, which might or might not get you in trouble. Think before you act and don't risk a solid relationship for a mere bonbon. Be smart. (You are smart.)


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Read the moon alert so that you're aware of the dangers of spending money today at the wrong time. I say this because you will be tempted to blow money on something you want (big or small) without thinking. Be wise so you have no regrets later.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You're eager for fun today. You might feel a strong attraction for someone who is sort of irresistible. (Sigh.) Just make sure you know what you're doing. The name of the game is to enjoy yourself but not get into trouble. (You're such a romantic.)


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a loosey-goosey day for the most part. (Check the moon alert.) Every moon alert is a creative time but poor for analytical, linear decisions, especially spending money. Today you have to guard your impulses to do what you want or get what you want. Be sensible.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a creative day working with others -- friends or people in groups. An interesting development could occur because suddenly a friend might look super appealing. Today is the kind of day where a flirtatious energy will suddenly grab you by the throat.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might be attracted to your boss today or someone in a position of power. You are very intense and sometimes impulsive (and certainly playful) -- just make sure you know what you're doing. You don't want to end up with egg on your face. (If you do, ketchup helps.)


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your love of travel and your impulsive nature might make you commit to something or make travel plans that you later regret. To be safe, check with the moon alert above before you act. Meanwhile, someone from another country or a different culture seems impossibly exotic.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a hot, sexy passionate day for you! No question. Enough said. (I leave that in your hands.) However, if you have intense, passionate feelings about suddenly spending money or dividing something that is jointly owned -- first check with the moon alert.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Relations with partners and close friends have been excellent lately and will continue to be good. And today is no exception. One could even say you're feeling randy. (And I don't mean Bachman, Newman or Travis.) Just look before you leap today, especially if starting a new relationship.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might be attracted to someone at work. Naturally, this will be amusing and titillating. But think about the complications of a work-related romance -- it's your call. Very often, during a moon alert, we make a decision we later regret. Oh yeah.



Actor Aaron Paul (1979) shares your birthday today. You are caring and idealistic. You identify with the common man. This is why you like to work to make the world a better place. This year will be full of promises of opportunities for future growth. Reduce your debt to be as free as possible for the next three years. Relationships will improve and business expansion could take place.
