Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 27/8/2014 (1087 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT: We have the "all-clear" today to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The moon is in Libra.


ARIES (March 21 to April 19)

Today is a mixed bag. On one hand, relations with others are friendly and breezy. You're happy to shmooze and have fun. Relations with romantic partners and children are upbeat. But beware, a brief hissing moment with a partner might occur (gulp).


TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)

Relations with family members are smooth and happy today. And for the most part, things will go well at work, too. Nevertheless, if you suggest reforms at work, someone might vehemently oppose you. Forewarned is forearmed.


GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)

This is a lovely, playful and flirtatious day. Enjoy the congenial company of others and indeed, be concerned for their welfare. You're happy to work with groups and happy to help. (But watch out for power struggles with someone who might feel threatened.)


CANCER (June 21 to July 22)

This is a good day for business and commerce, and an excellent day for shopping for your home and family. It's also a good day to explore real estate options. Nevertheless, family discussions might suddenly take a sudden turn because someone is obsessed with something or is upset. Patience.


LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22)

You feel good today. You will particularly enjoy group activities, especially if you can work together with others for a worthy cause. You will be persuasive and others will listen to you, which could be why, at some point, you poke someone the wrong way. Whoops. ("Sorry, is that eye yours?")


VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

This is a good day for business, commerce and most financial matters. Trust your moneymaking ideas because whatever you initiate today could mushroom or expand into something profitable. However, someone might disagree with you because of a power struggle.


LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Today can swing both ways. (Just like people.) For the most part, you will enjoy dealing with others, especially in groups. In particular, you'll be happy to lend your efforts to charitable organizations or groups who want to help others. (But ego battles with a family member might cramp your style.)


SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

You can work behind the scenes today and get a lot done that is worthy and valuable. No doubt you will do this by rousing the troops. Do not, however, let difficulties with a touchy individual hold you back. Ignore these power struggles if you can. And you can.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

A conversation with a female friend or acquaintance will be reassuring and friendly today. It could lead to a positive situation related to travel, publishing, media, medicine and the law. Meanwhile, in another part of the forest, someone could be jealous. Don't let this hold you back from doing something good.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

You value your public reputation, therefore, be aware that your good name is well promoted today, especially because of your generosity to someone and their reciprocal offer to help you. (Be wary of someone challenging you because they are jealous or threatened.)


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

Travel plans look exciting. In fact, you want to do anything that will change your day in a positive way because you want stimulation, adventure and a chance to learn something new. (Avoid controversial subjects like politics and religion because things could turn nasty.)


PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20)

You're in a generous mood today and because of this others will be generous to you. Could this be why someone objects? Perhaps someone is jealous of what you receive, or what you give away? Life is too short for petty power struggles.



Actor Jason Priestley (1969) shares your birthday today. You are intelligent, articulate and have an excellent use of language. Needless to say, you are convincing and you can persuade others to do what you want. This year you will start to accumulate things for the next three years. However, do not make important changes -- wait until next year. Study and learn as much as possible because next year is promising.
