Today’s Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 23/5/2013 (1546 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT We have the all clear today to do business and make important decisions. The full moon peaks in Sagittarius at 11:25 p.m.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

According to some Eastern traditions, this is a powerful full moon because all your actions (thought word and deed) will come back to us in a magnified way. Since this is a very active, talkative time for you, be mindful. Watch your Ps and Qs.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Certain financial matters might come to a head or you might feel pulled in opposite directions about how to handle money or assets. Do you put your own interests first or the interests of someone else? Remember: What goes around, comes around.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

The full moon could trigger difficulties with partners and close friends. (Basically, your closest relationships.) Keep in mind that for a relationship to be successful, you must be as good for your partner as he or she is for you. This especially applies to today.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You might encounter difficulties at work with co-workers, customers or clients. Keep in mind that this could be due to today's full moon energy, which makes everyone much more emotional and less inclined to compromise. Differences are suddenly highlighted in sharp contrast. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be patient with children and, similarly, be patient with romantic partners. The energy of the full moon can stir up difficulties with others simply because everyone is emotionally overloaded. If you are aware of this, you can be calmer and more tolerant and understanding.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might feel pulled between the demands of home and family versus the demands of your career or your external world. This is classic full moon energy. However, the way things go right now, you can't ignore your career, can you? Cope as best you can.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Be careful because this is an accident-prone day due to the full moon energy. This does not mean that an accident has to happen. It means that you (or someone else) might emotionally overreact to something or become too easily distracted. Go slowly.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Tension about money, possessions, earnings or something to do with your financial arrangements might arise because of the full moon energy. You might dispute something with someone. On the upside, someone might be generous to you. (Fingers crossed.)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The only full moon all year in your sign is taking place late tonight, which means you feel tension between you and others building up today. (Perhaps for the last few days.) This is a temporary thing so just bite your tongue.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be patient with co-workers and customers because everyone might be out of sorts due to the full moon energy. For example, patience is a discipline that is applied to heightened emotions. Emotions have no brakes but mental discipline does. Capice?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Children, romantic partners, sports events and hanging out with friends (especially in group situations) might test your patience today. The full moon energy is causing this, so just wait 48 hours. Everything will be different. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Although your attention is on home, family and on domestic matters right now, you might feel perturbed by demands made from your job, career or your external world. And so you should. You can't ignore the demands of your private life so try to balance.



Singer Bob Dylan (1941) shares your birthday. You have a strong social conscience, which is why you want to make the world a better place. You're skilled at using words, especially in a philosophical way. Because of this, you often influence others. Privately, you are quite reserved. Good news for you: Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
