Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 5/12/2013 (1352 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 Aquarius.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Avoid heated discussions about politics and religion because they will be pointless. Misunderstandings are rampant. People cannot hear each other or they leap to incorrect conclusions. Just accept this is the way things are and be quiet. You'll be glad you did.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This is a poor day for financial discussions, especially about other people's wealth. Postpone discussions and negotiations about inheritances, insurance matters, shared property, taxes and debt. Whether on purpose or accidentally -- you could be deceived.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Conversations with partners and close friends will be like two ships passing in the night. "Helloooo? Anybody there?" Mercury is confused by Neptune, which is why you might easily be hopelessly misunderstood. Just accept this. Mum's the word.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Postpone important decisions at work for another day because today is rife with errors, confusion and misrepresentation. People might intentionally withhold information from you or it could be accidental. Either way, you lose. Not good.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Discussions with children might be circular and confusing. Don't make a big deal about this because it's par for the course. Everyone is experiencing this because there's a general sense of confusion everywhere. Romance might be sadly disappointing.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be careful in discussions with family members because all is not as it appears. Someone might have a secret agenda, or they might be confused and not have all the facts. Whatever the case, truth is hard to discern and falsehood is everywhere. Run away! Run away!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might spend a lot of time daydreaming. (Ben Stiller is making a new Walter Mitty movie.) If, however, you have to do mental work and you feel challenged, or that you're losing it, fear not -- everyone feels like this.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Be very careful with cash flow and financial negotiations. Count your change and keep your receipts if you are shopping. Assume errors are everywhere. Assume nothing is as it appears in that someone might even cheat you, either accidentally or on purpose. Forewarned is forearmed.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Mercury is in your sign at odds with dreamy Neptune, which is like having Vaseline on your lens. You can't see clearly. Or perhaps you're trying to keep a secret or hold back information? That will be obvious, too. In fact, the only obvious things are lies and confusion.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Something is being hidden from you either accidentally or on purpose. For sure, if you suspect something fishy is going on, it is. There's a lot going on behind the scenes, but none of it is clear. Don't worry, though -- you're not the only one in the dark.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Be careful in your dealings with others, especially with groups, and especially with younger people. Someone might want to deceive you or string you along or make things look better than they are. Trust your gut instincts, not the words of others. Not even your own ears.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a poor day to talk about important things to people in authority because either they will be misled or you will be. They might think you are out to lunch or missing something, and in turn, you might think they are withholding information from you. It's just what it is.


Producer/screenwriter Judd Apatow (1967) shares your birthday. You are perceptive and see opportunities where others do not. You also see talents that are often missed in people, which gives you an advantage to organize the efforts of others. In fact, you're a great organizer and manager in part because you're a straight shooter. Make an effort to take time in the coming year to study or learn something valuable because it will benefit your future.
