Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 19/8/2013 (1458 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT We have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions until 8:30 p.m. The full moon in Aquarius peaks at 8:45 p.m.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Because of the energy of the full moon, relations with romantic partners as well as relations with children are on edge. You might feel as if you have to be in two places at the same time or that you cannot serve two masters. (Sometimes it's tough to serve just one!)


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You feel pulled between the demands of home and family versus the demands of career and your public reputation. In other words, you can't keep everyone happy. In this particular case, you cannot ignore home and family. Be aware of this.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

The full moon might create accident-prone situations for you so pay attention to everything you say and do. Of course, an accident doesn't have to happen. It's just that you might be distracted or emotionally heightened about something. Stay chill.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

The full moon could create tension in financial matters for you. It might be hard to know what to put first -- your own financial interests or those of someone else? With this particular full moon, you cannot ignore your own earnings and cash flow.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is the second time in a row the full moon has opposed your sign. What gives? Apparently, the sign of Cancer, which is skipping it's full moon this year. (Cancer is getting time off for good behaviour.) Meanwhile, be patient with others. Easy does it.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Possibly, a behind-the-scenes situation is making you anxious. Don't worry about this because by tomorrow everything will be much more settled and running more smoothly. This is just one of those days where people are easily overwrought.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your relations with others, especially in group situations, might be dramatic. The full moon can do this to people. Think twice before you alter your long-term goals. By tomorrow you will have a clearer picture of what you want to do. In the meantime, be patient with others.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Relations with authority figures -- bosses, parents and teachers -- might be touchy because of the full moon energy. You feel drawn between the demands of home and family and meeting the demands of these authority figures. Well, you can't ignore the demands of those in power. Ten-shun!


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Tread carefully because this is a mildly accident-prone day for you. Avoid arguments about controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues because people are too emotional and heated about these topics. Travel plans might need to be revised.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Issues about shared property, inheritances, insurance matters, taxes and debt might come to a head. Things have to be decided one way or the other. Fear not, it appears you seem quite happy with things by tomorrow. Wait and see.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

As strange as it may seem, this is the second full moon in your sign in a row. Once again you are focused strongly on partnerships and close relationships. Work to maintain an easy give-and-take in these relationships. Be tolerant and patient. Tomorrow things fall easily into place.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Tension from the full moon might affect you at work or in any kind of task you set for yourself. You might feel at odds with others. Perhaps you or someone else will have an emotional reaction to something. Be cool and stay mellow.



Actress Meghan Ory (1982) shares your birthday. Many of you have a secret in your past or something that motivates you to behave in a certain way in the future. You might not even be aware of it. However, you have a fantastic imagination and you are always fearless. You understand human nature. Make time this year to study or learn something valuable. (Your rewards will follow.)
