Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 10/5/2013 (1565 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.


MOON ALERT We have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The moon is in Gemini.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You feel strong and forthright. You might be the first to talk to others about something that concerns you, especially finances, cash flow or perhaps even a possession or something you own. Expect to meet new people and have interesting conversations. It's a go-go day.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You are emboldened to speak your mind today because Mercury (how you talk, think and communicate) is lined up with the sun in your sign. Naturally, this boosts your intellectual confidence and your style of communicating. It might also pique your interest in financial matters.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

This is a strong day for you to do research of any kind. Although you would prefer to work behind the scenes or work alone, you won't hesitate to give your opinions to others because the Sun is lined up with your ruler Mercury. (And whatever happens to Mercury always affects you.)

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Conversations with friends and people in groups might reveal some secrets. Certainly, if you want to know something, you won't hesitate to go after it because you are assertive, especially intellectually. In fact, lots of people are talking to each other.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a good day to go after what you want, especially if you're dealing with authority figures like bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police. You have a lot of mental energy and intellectual confidence. This will show in your style of speech. (That's why others will listen.)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Any kind of study will appeal to you because you're eager to learn something and broaden your experience of life. This is also a great day to make travel plans and explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. Reach out for what you want.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You won't hesitate to defend your best interests in discussions about shared property, taxes, debt, inheritances or insurance matters. You will stand your ground! Furthermore, you will have facts, figures and data at your fingertips to share with others.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Conversations with partners and close friends are dynamic and lively because you feel enthusiastic and keen to talk to others. Generally, when one is in this mood they attract people who are similarly enthusiastic and talkative. Look, a gabfest!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You'll enjoy new ventures or starting something that is work-related. You will equally enjoy starting anything that's health-related, perhaps a new regime or class that can improve your health. Work-related travel is likely. You'll be hands-on in your approach to things.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A creative day! Your mind is bursting with ideas. This is also a fun-filled, playful day that favours sports, movies, the arts, musical performances and playful times with children. You might also meet a new love. If so, it will be a chatty affair.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is the perfect day to begin repairs at home or to tackle new projects. It's also a good day for family meetings and gatherings at home. Discussions will be energetic but productive. Tell stories to children about the bad old days before cell phones and video games. (Whatever did we do?)

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Expect lots of conversations with others because this is a highly communicative day. You might be sending or receiving letters as well. In some manner, you will be the active agent making announcements or making things happen. "Now hear this! Now hear this!"


Alpine skier Nancy Greene (1943) shares your birthday. You are flirtatious, fun-loving and eager to enjoy life and its creature comforts. Many of you are imaginative and creative, which lends to working in the arts. You have a great sense of humour and enjoy good friendships and convivial times with others. In the year ahead, you will work hard to build or construct something important.
