Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 24/3/2014 (1243 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 7:30 a.m. until 5:45 p.m. After that the moon moves from Capricorn in to Aquarius.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

This is a goofy day. (See moon alert.) Nevertheless, the sun is in your sign and you are empowered. This only happens once a year for four weeks. Use this time to re-energize yourself for the rest of the year and be glad of the people and auspicious circumstances you attract.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This is the perfect day to see museums, art galleries and appreciate the arts and crafts of other countries. You'll love to have heady discussions about profound subjects with others. Let your day unfold but avoid major purchases or important decisions.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Even though you are focused on red-tape details, especially about shared property, banking, inheritances and insurance matters, do not make important decisions regarding these matters. Just do your databank. Get info.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

This is a good day to shmooze with others and talk to old friends and partners. Just kick ideas around because everyone will be creative and thinking out-of-the-box. Nevertheless, agree to nothing important until after the moon alert.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Even though your focus is on work and trying to get things done, don't expect too much from yourself or others. We have moon alert for most of the day, which means people feel indecisive and a bit restless, but it's strong for creative activity.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a wonderful day for those who work in the arts or anyone involved in a creative project because your mind is sort of free-floating. You will think out-of-the-box and see things from a new perspective. You might come up with genius-like ideas or they could be just dumb.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

If you can cocoon at home, you will enjoy it. Family discussions might take place, especially with a female family relative. If so, agree to nothing important and don't volunteer for anything. There is a moon alert for most of the day, so just take it easy.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a curious day because in one way you will be mentally and intellectually creative -- full of brilliance -- but in another way, you might be one sandwich short of a picnic. This influence can go both ways. Therefore, don't sign anything important or agree to anything important; just write down your ideas.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your focus is on finances and cash flow. Lucky Sagittarians are reading this column right now. Do not make important financial decisions. Check with the moon alert above before you do anything, including shopping. Be safe.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The moon is in your sign; however, it is a moon alert for most of the day. This makes you feel disoriented and indecisive, but only if you try to be analytical and competent. If you just go with the flow and play hooky, you will have a lovely day.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Trust your intuition because there is a chance that it is working 80 per cent of the time. (Nevertheless, there is always that 20 per cent -- don't forget.) You might get strong impressions about things and that's just fine. Recall them tomorrow when it is safe to act. Think today; act tomorrow.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a great day to shmooze with others, especially female acquaintances. You will love kicking around ideas about big plans for the future. Some discussions might explore humanitarian causes. But wait until tomorrow to act. (See moon alert.)



Singer/composer Elton John (1947) shares your birthday. Your energy is so powerful and limitless you are almost unstoppable. You are capable and you know what you can and cannot do. Although tactful, you are frank when need be. You are also loyal. This is your most powerful year because you can gain wealth. It's a good year to liquidate or sell property and make money in general. Think big!
