Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 3/4/2013 (1596 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 Aquarius.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Today is fascinating and stimulating, especially if you meet others in groups. You might meet a real character or someone unusual. You might surprise others by saying or doing something they don't expect or, in turn, someone might surprise you. A fun day!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

A boss or someone in authority (your boss, parent or the police) might surprise you. They might even say something that provokes you to respond rebelliously (or not.) Or you might suddenly get a bright idea about a whole new career direction. (Wow.)

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

You love studying anything new. Surprising news about politics, religion or something to do with publishing, the media, medicine and the law might intrigue you. You might also meet someone (probably a female) who is from a different background or culture.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Because unexpected events or surprises could impact your bank account, your debt scene or something to do with shared property, do keep your eyes open. You might see new ways to leverage your debt or get a loan. Stay on top of things.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be flexible talking to partners and close friends. They might demand more freedom or expect more of you in some way. They might also surprise you. Stay alert so you are ready to respond to what others expect. (Wear deodorant and speak clearly.)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

New technology might be introduced to your job or existing technology might be glitched. Something is up. Staff shortages or the introduction of new staff could make today different. Things are a bit up in the air. (If you don't know what you're doing, do it neatly.)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This can be a creative day for you because it's easy to think out of the box. However, it's a mildly accident-prone day for your children if you are a parent or you work with kids. Romance might blossom with someone who is unlikely. (An exciting whirlwind affair that is memorable but short-lived.)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Something different or unusual will happen with your home routine or your family today -- unusual news or a surprise visit. You might buy something high-tech for home. Equipment breakdowns and minor breakages (crash!) might occur. Be patient with family members to avoid arguments.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your mind is really sailing. You're full of bright ideas and able to put a new spin on things. This is a great day to study something new and different or learn a new language. Something in your everyday environment might surprise you, which in itself is surprising.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your financial scene is not entirely stable. Therefore, keep your eyes open. Something you own -- cash or possessions -- might suddenly disappear. Conversely, you might find something, even money on the street. Respect your money-making ideas.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Things will be inclined to go your way today because the moon is in your sign. (This means if you tipped the world on its side, all the loose change would roll in your direction.) You might want to check under your sofa cushions. Keep your pockets open.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Behind-the-scenes research might yield surprising results for you. Maybe the gossip mill will turn out something shocking. Or your own research might come up with surprising answers. Some kind of truth will likely be revealed to you today. ("Luke, I am your father.")


Actor Robert Downey Jr. (1965) shares your birthday. You're inventive, plus you have boundless energy that thrusts you to the forefront of things. You also have the courage and self-discipline to change course when you get off track. Invariably, you fight for what you want and you get it. It's important for you to have a purpose in life. Good news: Your next year might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
