Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 20/10/2013 (1398 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT Avoid shopping or making important decisions until 11:30 p.m. After that the moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

In the next month, you can make headway with inheritances, estates, banking, debt, taxes and insurance matters. Procrastinate no longer. Mercury retrograde will help you cut through this stuff like a hot knife slicing through butter.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Ex-partners and old friends will be back in your life during the next month. (If not already.) Get psychologically prepared for this instead of being caught off guard and having to fake delight. People from your past are coming back.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Your ruler is Mercury and Mercury is now retrograde. Your work, your job and tasks you set for yourself will be rife with silly errors, mistakes, delays, lost paperwork, misunderstandings and confused communications. However, you will wrap up old business quickly.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Old flames will be back on your doorstep, calling, or bumping into you in unexpected encounters. ("Oh my gawd, it's you.") Yes, it's Mercury retrograde. In the month ahead, you can use influence to finish business related to children, sports, show business and the hospitality industry.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

In the next few weeks, you'll be more involved than usual with family matters. You might talk to parents or family members you haven't seen for a while. On the other hand, you might find yourself going through cupboards, drawers and looking at things you own, especially family-related possessions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Mercury retrograde will bring delays to your lifestyle in the next month. Just grin and bear it. Mechanical problems with cars, trucks and bikes as well as missed buses and trains will cause delays and frustration. Allow extra time for wiggle room. Communications will likewise be like two ships passing in the night. (Yikes.)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Mercury retrograde can be a hassle but it can also be a blessing (sort of). Although cheques in the mail might be late or money could be delayed in the coming month, you also have a chance to wrap up financial matters and finish a job more easily.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Mercury is retrograde in your sign now, which means you might feel overwhelmed with goofy errors, miscommunications, transportation delays and lost items. The upside is, and there is always an upside, you can wrap up a lot of old business quickly.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

For the next several weeks, Mercury is retrograde, which means this is a great opportunity for you to do effective, productive research. Mercury retrograde wants to go backwards. Therefore, studying the past or researching history becomes easier. Go figure.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Old friends are back in your life again now in the next few weeks. If you're lucky, some of them might remember they owe you $50. If you're unlucky, you remember -- but they don't. Grrr. Actually, it's good to have history with people, but not everyone.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

With Mercury retrograde taking place at the top of your chart, you are bound to run into old bosses or authority figures from your past. Perhaps you have a chance to make your pitch once again to somebody and this time they sit up and listen. Who knows?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

The next few weeks are a wonderful time to finish writing projects, thesis papers and studies as well as wrap up stuff with publishing, the media, medicine and the law. It's a poor time to begin new things, but an excellent time to finish what is already on your plate.


Actor Will Estes (1978) shares your birthday. People find you attractive. In fact, you can inspire others. You have excellent verbal skills. You are charming, but at times you can be challenging. Words are your strength, which is why many of you sell, write, edit and act. You enjoy having fun. This year you begin an exciting new cycle. Be bold -- open any door!
