Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 12/11/2013 (1375 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)

Expect the unexpected, especially later in the day because the moon is in your sign lined up with wild, unpredictable Uranus. This makes you impulsive, restless and vulnerable to rash, sudden actions. (Moi?) Count to three before you react to others.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You feel restless. You have that feeling that you're waiting for the other shoe to drop. (Invariably, it's ugly and never in your size.) However, you might discover an interesting secret about someone. Basically, everything is up for grabs. Hang on to your hat, and be discreet.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

A meeting with friends might be rescheduled or cancelled. (Especially later in the day.) You might meet a real character or someone you know might say or do something that surprises you. One thing is certain: Your interactions with others will go sideways at some point.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Someone in a position of authority (boss, parent, teacher, VIP or the police) might do something that shocks you. Don't push your luck because you could get busted. Or you might do something that shocks them. This is likely because you're feeling rebellious and independent. Oh yeah.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Travel plans might be interrupted, cancelled or changed, especially later in the day. Ditto for evening classes. You might meet a real character or someone from another country might surprise you by saying or doing something unusual. Keep your eyes open.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Check your bank accounts and anything related to shared property because something could be off in this late in the day. Stay on top of things if they're important because something unpredictable will suddenly descend upon you. (It's a bird!)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Be patient with others because the moon is opposite your sign, which means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Something out of the blue will change things. It could be a minor argument or it could be a change of plans. Be ready.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Something unexpected will impact your workday or possibly even your health. Fortunately, it occurs late in the day so you might not feel it in your day job, but it could make you want to quit or go off and do your own thing. ("I'm outta here.")

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This could be an accident-prone day for your kids so be extra vigilant, especially late in the day. Remove hazardous situations. Meanwhile, romance might be rocky and plans to socialize could get sidelined. ("Whaaat? I thought we were all going to Andy's?")

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

People at home are feisty, which could lead to some minor disputes. Power outages and problems with small appliances might occur. Minor breakages might also take place. Try to put a lid on things and stay mellow, especially this evening.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an accident-prone day for your sign, especially late in the day. Therefore, pay attention to everything you say and do. It's that simple. The name of the game is survival so be aware and be mindful. Think twice before you speak and act, because you will feel wilful and rebellious.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might find money; you might lose money. Guard your possessions against loss or theft. This unpredictable quality will most likely impact you late in the day, so continue to be vigilant until bedtime. Alternatively, some of you might see a new way to earn money.


Actor Chris Noth (1954) shares your birthday. You are bright, clever and insightful. Others respect your opinion. Many of you are also spiritual and esthetically sensitive, but you are a realist, especially when it comes to fighting for your beliefs and everyday struggles. People are fond of you because you're outgoing, entertaining and friendly. This year an important choice or decision will arise. Choose wisely.
