Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 29/10/2013 (1389 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 9:45 p.m. The moon is in Virgo.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You feel strong and healthy -- virtually robust! Naturally, this makes you optimistic at work or doing any task you set for yourself. Work-related travel is likely. You might also enjoy a warm conversation with someone from another culture.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This is a feel-good day. Enjoy shmoozing with others. You will especially like sports events, parties, long lunches, movies, the theatre and fun times with children. Group activities will be friendly, upbeat and full of good cheer. That's because Jupiter is dancing with the moon.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Invite the gang over because this is a great day to entertain at home. The more the merrier! (Keep in mind that is a cliché and is often not the case at all.) Real-estate deals look good, especially for financial speculation. You might buy something "big" for your home.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Those of you who sell, market, teach, act, write or promote things for a living will be successful because your sheer optimism and enthusiasm will carry the day. Who can resist you? Short trips or travel of any kind will please.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

"There's money in them thar hills!" This is an excellent day for business and commerce. Some kind of favourable circumstance might allow you to expand something or increase your earnings. It could relate to travel or dealing with a foreign country.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will enjoy being with others because you feel congenial and friendly. You will most especially enjoy running into people you know well. Because you feel so warm-hearted, you're also concerned for the welfare of others and will help others if you can.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Look for opportunities to offer a kindness to someone or be generous to someone in need because this will please you. Consider it a Mother Teresa influence from the stars. Jupiter wants to expand the nurturing aspect of the Moon. ("More porridge?")


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Accept invitations to interact with others whether it's a small coffee klatch, class, meeting or large conference because you feel social and friendly to others. In particular, you'll love hanging out with groups, especially if you can rally the troops! "To the gates!"


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You make an excellent impression on important people -- that's why this is the day to ask for what you want. Make your pitch. Ask for permission or approval. People in authority will likely approve, especially if you are asking for permission to travel or expand something.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Travel opportunities might fall in your lap. Similarly, opportunities to explore further education or training might also come your way. Enjoy discussions about psychology, philosophy, religion and politics because you feel wise. You might meet a teacher or be one.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a good day to ask for a loan or go for a mortgage. The odds are high you can benefit from the wealth and resources of others. You might try to get your budget increased or ask for equipment you want. It could be anything. Just ask -- you have nothing to lose.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your relationships with others will be warm and effusive. People are glad to see you and vice versa. Not only that, but you are open to helping others and they're just as ready to help you. Yes, it's one of those encouraging days.



Actor/director Henry Winkler (1945) shares your birthday. You are practical, committed and organized. You're a doer. You listen to those around you and then act with confidence. Many of you are multi-talented, versatile and can excel in more than one field. You sure know how to rally the troops when you need support. This year you enter an exciting new cycle. Open any door!
