Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 8/4/2012 (1956 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 1:45 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. After that the moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

This is an exciting day! Expect to meet new people and see new places because your usual routine will be interrupted, hopefully, by something pleasant. Because your mind is virtually brimming with clever ideas, you'll enjoy talking to everyone. Yada, yada, yada!


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Good news! Today is full of all kinds of unexpected opportunities to boost your earnings or land a better job. Be alert. (The world needs more lerts.) Impulse spending, especially on high-tech toys will likely occur. (If you've got it, flaunt it.)


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

"You dee-serve a breaaak today." (And you're certainly going to take one.) You're excited about meeting stimulating, new friends. (Avoid bores.) Others will find you fascinating and charged with electricity. New acquaintances will be agreeable and interesting. Get out and shmooze!


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Behind-the-scenes work or research in some area could yield surprising results today. "Eureka!" Some of you might begin a secret love affair that totally revolutionizes your life. Or you might have a special secret that excites you. Hush, hush.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might make a new friend today. If so, this person will be unusual or very stimulating to you in some way. Alternatively, your participation in a group might suddenly take on new meaning or take off in a new direction. Avoid boring situations.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Some of you might have a surprise encounter with VIPs, bosses, parents or someone in authority. Whatever happens catches you off guard. (But it's exciting.) Some might entertain a flirtation or begin a love affair with an authority figure. People think highly of you today. (Cool.)


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Surprise opportunities to travel will delight you today. You might enjoy religious art or seeing beautiful places and learning unusual facts. (Did you know the Egyptians once trained baboons to wait on tables?) Push your agenda in publishing, the media, medicine and the law because these areas look good.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Surprise gifts, goodies and favours from others can come your way, so keep a smile on your face and your pockets open. Good news regarding inheritances, loans, mortgages, insurance matters or anything to do with shared property might also surprise you.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Stay light on your feet today because partners and close friends might throw you a curve ball. Fortunately, it could be anything from a surprise party to an unexpected invitation somewhere. (It looks like it will be something pleasurable and exciting.) Something will feel "new" and different.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your work routine will be interrupted today. The bad news is, it could be computer crashes, power outages, fire drills, staff shortages and that sort of thing. But it could be exciting! Perhaps a new staff member who makes everyone sit up and take notice? Or possibly, some new high-tech equipment?


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Surprise flirtations might make your heart race today. Something to do with romance and love affairs will definitely hold a few surprises for you. Unexpected invitations or a chance to take a vacation could also be thrilling. Parents take note: this is a mildly accident-prone day for your kids.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might buy some high-tech toys for your home today. Or possibly you'll buy modern art or something different and unusual. Surprise company might drop by, so be aware of this. (Tidy the place and have some food and drink on hand.)



Actor Dennis Quaid (1954) shares your birthday. You are modern and persuasive! You're clever at taking your ideas and making them a reality. Many of you have strong influence on others. You're outspoken and direct and have no trouble doing things your own way, according to your own ethics. Once you have made up your mind, you will not compromise. In the year ahead, an important choice will arise. Choose wisely.
