Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 16/6/2013 (1522 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT We have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The moon is in Libra.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You're exploding with ideas. This is the good news. The bad news is you might trigger an argument with someone by saying something upsetting or a bit too much for someone to handle. Your impulsive high-energy might also suddenly take you on a trip.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Write down your innovative, original money-making ideas. (Clever you.) But also be aware of your cash and possessions because you might suddenly find money, lose money, break something you own or discover a treasure. It's a crapshoot! One thing is certain: Cash is flowing. Ka-ching!


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

You're determined to succeed at whatever you undertake. Nevertheless, be aware that you're shooting from the hip and playing it fast and loose. Your ability to improvise will be marvellous because so much is going on. Stay light on your feet and expect hourly detours.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

This is a restless day. Emotionally speaking, you feel edgy and nervous and externally, all around you, your routine is interrupted because of sudden, unexpected changes. Guard against the unexpected, especially from hidden areas where you least expect it. "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!"


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Physical plans with others might suddenly scoop you out of your routine into a blender of activity. You will meet new and unusual people who, in turn, might cause you to change or expand your goals. You might also want greater freedom dealing with a group because your independence is precious.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Relations with bosses, parents, teachers and authority figures are unpredictable because people will say things or make demands on you that you least expect. However, in turn, you might be doing the same thing! (You have the Roddenberry gene within you, making you boldly go where no man has gone before.)


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Travel plans might be interrupted, changed or delayed. Similarly, interactions with publishing, the media, medicine and the law are subject to sudden changes and cancellations. Surprise news about higher education could make your day... or not.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Make friends with your bank account because something to do with shared property, taxes, debt, inheritances and insurance matters is unstable and unpredictable. This means anything can happen. This further means you have to keep your finger on the pulse of things. Look sharp.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Arguments, interruptions and unexpected detours might take place when dealing with others, especially partners and close friends. It's almost a guarantee that someone will do something that surprises you or catches you off guard. Possibly, the reverse will happen and you will surprise others. Steady as she goes.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Allow extra wiggle room because your work routine will be interrupted by computer crashes, power outages, fire drills, staff shortages, cancelled meetings and equipment breakdowns. Expect the unexpected because today is unpredictable. (Forewarned is forearmed.)


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an accident-prone day for your kids or children you work with so be focused and extra vigilant. This is also an accident-prone day for those of you involved in sports, the arts, show business and the hospitality industry. The good news is you are full of original, clever ideas!


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Small appliances might break down today or minor breakages could occur. Domestic arguments could erupt because people are impulsive and speaking or doing things without thinking. Not good. Be patient and count to five before you react.



Actor Thomas Haden Church (1960) shares your birthday. You are persuasive. You might appear casual. However, you're serious about your goals. Others feel your mental presence as well as a strong physical presence when you're in the room. You're an excellent planner, designer and strategist. You have high ideals, which you sometimes impose on those close to you. In your year ahead, partnerships and close friendships will be your primary focus.
