Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!

MOON ALERT We have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions until 3:30 p.m. The moon is in Cancer.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Because you feel generous and sympathetic to others, especially to those less fortunate, you might choose to help someone in need. This is a noble impulse. Nevertheless, don't give away the farm. Remember: True generosity is giving what is needed.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Relations with partners and close friends will be warm and cosy because it's easy to establish a mutual simpatico with each other. You are interested in the well-being of someone else and, vice versa, they care about what's happening to you. Refreshing.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Your imaginative skills and ability to visualize are excellent, especially if you have to use them at work. Similarly, you can easily put yourself in someone else's position, perhaps a co-worker, which is why you will be sympathetic to their situation.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

This is a great date night (or day) because you feel romantic, easy-going and tender-hearted. You'll enjoy romantic interludes with others, the arts, the theatre, musical performances as well as playful times with children. It's easy to feel inspired. ("With a song in my heaaart!")


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Enjoy entertaining at home. You feel warm-hearted to family members and will be gratified to offer a fun, pleasurable time for everyone. Someone in the family might need a sympathetic ear or a shoulder to cry on. ("Hey sis, how's things?")


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a great day for writers and artists who rely on their imagination. Your powers of visualization are excellent. In addition, because you can tune in to where others are coming from, you look like a mind reader. Conversations with others will be mutually sympathetic.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You love beautiful things, including clothes, jewelry, furnishings, as well as entertaining diversions in restaurants and clubs. You might be tempted to go overboard spending money on extravagant goodies. Ah yes, veni vidi Visa: We came, we saw, we shopped.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a lovely day to shmooze with others because you feel open, friendly and warm-hearted to everyone. You see what others are experiencing and you feel sympathetic. You will feel rewarded if you can practice a kindness or some generosity to someone.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Call it a Mother Teresa influence, but you feel inclined to put the needs and wants of others before your own. You're not being a martyr. Au contraire -- you genuinely want to help others, especially if they need your help. In fact, you'll find it gratifying to do so.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If you have a chance to lend your efforts to a charitable organization or a group who are trying to make the world a better place, you will feel rewarded for your efforts. This is because your idealism is strong. You might also enjoy helping a friend.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

It's easy to idolize somebody or put them up on a pedestal. Quite likely, this person is older, more established or perhaps in a position of authority. Just be aware you are doing this. Others might find that someone else is doing this to them. Either way, it's not reality.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your appreciation of beauty is heightened, which is why you should give yourself a chance to enjoy beautiful places. Visit gardens, parks, museums, art galleries or gorgeous architectural buildings. Discuss stimulating, grand ideas.



Singer Katy Perry (1984) shares your birthday. You are physical, earthy and solid in how you relate to your world. Others depend on you. You want your surroundings to be organized the way you want them to be. That's because you need a reliable resource to give shape to your ideas. This year a major change might take place, perhaps something as significant as what happened around 2004.
