Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 9/10/2013 (1407 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT Not until 9:30 a.m. do we have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. After that the moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Be careful. You have Vaseline on your lens, which might make you fall for someone who is different (different culture, different background, different country) and it's just not possible. This is the classic day to hunger for the impossible or the unattainable. (Been there. Done that. Got the T-shirt.)


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Be careful in financial matters, especially if you're dividing or sharing something. Out of feelings of sympathy for others, you might shortchange yourself. Or you might fall for crocodile tears. Or you might be deceived. Keep your eyes open.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Relations with partners and close friends are romantic and yet vaguely disquieting. Perhaps you expect too much from someone and therefore you're disappointed. Or perhaps you idolize someone and their mask is beginning to crack? (I hate it when that happens.)


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Be clear with co-workers about whatever you are saying because confusion is possible. People will tend to believe what they hope is the case. They might leap to conclusions that are incorrect. ("These $20,000 pearls are for me?") Don't lead anyone down the garden path -- or any path.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a romantic day. No question. You want soft lights, music and the stuff of movies. However, because you are dealing with a fantasy in a real world, something will disappoint. In fact, the worst-case scenario is that a relationship will end. Yikes.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will enjoy entertaining at home, especially if you can do so in an imaginative way with candles, soft music, sparkling lights, flaming absinthe -- the works. Conversations with others will be sensitive and mutually sympathetic. And yet, one wonders, does the bell toll for thee? (Yeah, it's a weird day.)


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You will likely spend time daydreaming and fantasizing and that's totally OK. Everyone else is doing it, too, but you're probably doing it in Technicolor. You love the "look" of things. If you're doing business with others and you're suspicious something fishy is afoot, it is.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Be careful with financial matters. Be especially careful shopping because you will be tempted by extravagant, luxurious things and later, you will wake up and ask yourself, "What was I thinking?" Keep your receipts.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

If you feel disappointed in someone, quite likely this particular relationship was not rooted in reality anyhow. In turn, if you fall for someone, keep this same sentiment in mind. Fantasy is a big part of the day and fantasy leads to disappointment. A painful truth. (But it's fun!)


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Secret love affairs might take place for some of you. Be careful because your secret might be exposed. Some kind of confusion could take place or perhaps your expectations might be disappointing. Tread carefully. All is not as it seems.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A friend might disappoint, especially someone in a group setting. Perhaps you expected more of them. (You probably did.) But others are just frail mortals like yourself. And remember: Unexpressed expectations almost always lead to disappointment.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Be careful talking to bosses, parents, teachers and authority figures because communications are vague and subject to misunderstandings. In fact, some people might be a bit fast and loose with the truth. More likely, the misunderstanding is based on a misperception.



Actor Dan Stevens (1982) shares your birthday. You are observant, insightful, articulate and often work in the arts. You're careful with money and your judgment can be trusted. You're well-organized and an excellent problem solver. You enjoy the comforts of home and life's pleasures. Good news: This year might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
