Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 23/8/2013 (1457 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. The moon is in Aries.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You're keen to get a lot done, which is why you're talking it up with others. Of course, they will listen. Why? Because it's easy to put a lot of yourself into what you have to say. To put it mildly, you're convincing. (When one is convinced by an Aries, they're ready to sign on the dotted line.)


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This can be a productive day for you if you're involved in creative ventures. You can be intellectually creative or creative with your hands. You might also be keen to convince others about something, especially children or perhaps a romantic partner.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

This is a good day to start new ventures at home or projects that involve repairs or conversations with family members. You will be the active agent who is initiating things. You've got big ideas about what you want to get done and you intend to see it happen.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

This is a powerful day for those of you who communicate for a living -- selling, marketing, writing, teaching and acting. You will put a lot of energy into whatever you have to say, which is why you will be so effective. Of course, others will listen!


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Financial conversations will intrigue you. You want to make the best use of your assets and your possessions. You also want to feel you're using your money wisely. This is why you are excited to discuss these subjects and learn more from others.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a great day to begin new projects and meet new people. You feel fresh and ready for anything. Your mind is bubbling with new ideas you want to share with others. In turn, lots of information is coming your way as well. And that's exactly as it should be.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Any kind of research will go well because you're eager to discover secrets and learn something new. In addition, you're willing to do whatever it takes to get the answers you want. Nothing will deter you. You're like a dog with a bone.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Conversations with others, especially in group settings, will be important. New ideas, new suggestions and fresh beginnings are likely. Co-operate with others because it benefits you to work with people. Expect to be involved with younger people.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be careful in conversation with authority figures because you might come on a bit too strong, or you might threaten someone (unintentionally). However, if you do need to convince bosses, parents and teachers of your point of view, you'll have no trouble doing this.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will adore study and learning anything new because you're hungry for knowledge. Travel someplace different if you can. Talk to people from other cultures and different countries. Explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. You're a keener!


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You're prepared to stand your ground on issues regarding inheritances, taxes, debt and shared property. Not only that, you will share your views with others. Your mind is clear and ready for the rapid exchange of ideas. Yada yada yada.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Partners and close friends might have fresh suggestions about new projects. Someone is keen to communicate with you, which means, ideally, you have to be receptive and willing to listen. Actually, you might hear some good advice or a hot tip.



Sci-fi author Orson Scott Card (1951) shares your birthday. You have an investigative mind and are thorough in everything you do. You like to unravel mysteries and discover the truth of things. You love to learn about anything -- philosophy, science, modern history. You're a natural researcher, both academically and about the world around you. You can be a good parent. This year you will focus on partnerships and close friends.
