Today' Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 29/4/2013 (1573 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 moon is in Capricorn.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

This is a tough day in terms of money, finances, earnings, cash flow and even issues related to your possessions or anything that you own. For starters, whatever you try to do in financial terms will be blocked. Just sit this day out because tomorrow has better possibilities. (It's all about timing.)

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You might find it frustrating dealing with others, especially partners and close friends. It's as if no matter what you suggest, someone opposes you. (Whaaat?) Sometimes you just can't fight city hall. Wait until tomorrow to put a new spin on this.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

You might feel vaguely disgruntled. In fact, someone behind the scenes might be working against your best interests. The trouble is you cannot identify this or prove it. In addition, you might be annoyed with someone but feel you cannot voice your grievances. Aaaggh, the injustice of it all!

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Your attempt to relate to others in group situations might be frustrating. Either someone will be unco-operative or they might directly oppose you. They might criticize you or shun you from the group. (Yikes!) Wait until tomorrow. Things will be different.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a dicey day dealing with authority figures -- parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs. Ideally, you should postpone having to talk to these people. This is a poor day to ask for permission or approval. Their answer is simply going to be, "Talk to the hand." (Gee, thanks.)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Travel plans might come to a screeching halt. Expect delays, confrontations, difficulties and obstacles. In fact, you might encounter this same kind of situation with higher education, legal matters and anything to do with medicine or publishing. (Tomorrow is a better day.)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Discussions about inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt and anything that you own jointly with others will likely disappoint you. People are not going to come across. They're not going to be helpful and they will likely not be generous. (Ouch.)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because you will likely be annoyed with partners and close friends today, you know this ahead of time. (Whew.) This means your wise reaction will be to be patient, tolerant and not get sucked in by your demons. Tomorrow is a far better day. Just tread water.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This might be a tough day at work. People are not helpful. Instead, they want to block your efforts. This is a poor day to push too hard for anything. Just work. Keep your head down and your powder dry.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Parents and teachers might be challenged dealing with children. And lovers might find that romance is on the rocks. That's because no matter what you try to do, you seem to meet obstacles, refusals and general difficulties.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Family difficulties will be challenging. You might especially be blocked by authority figures, parents and older relatives. Life has been hectic with lots of activity at home but today is just hard. Fortunately, tomorrow is much better!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

The frustrating thing about is that if you are annoyed with someone (and this is highly likely) you feel you can't say anything. You can't speak up. You're muzzled. If you're frustrated enough, this will make you want to cry. (The sign of Pisces "rules" the lachrymose glands, which are the tear ducts.) I kid you not.


Actor Paul Gross (1959) shares your birthday. You do things professionally and correctly. Because of this, you have a natural air of authority. You admire charm and cleverness in others. You're a warm friend and co-worker and are protective towards others who work with or for you. You're affectionate with family and friends. In your year ahead, you will construct or build something and your rewards will soon follow.
