Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 2/2/2014 (1297 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)

Keep your shirt on (tough to do if you have to get something off your chest). You will be tempted to give a hair-trigger response to others because you feel rebellious, impatient and intense about things. Guard against impulsive, rash actions.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

If you have to do work that requires concentration it might be tough because your mind is erratic and impulsive. You don't want to be hemmed in or held back in any way. On a more interesting note: Surprise secrets might be revealed. (Hopefully, about someone else.)


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

There's good news and there's bad news. The good news is you might meet a real character, someone unusual and fascinating. The bad news is you might have a sudden argument with someone, especially a female and probably in a group. Oops.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Do not wake the sleeping giant because your dealings with authority figures (bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police) are subject to upsets, rejection, power struggles and setbacks. (Yikes!) Someone might say something that upsets you or vice versa. Hmmm, don't quit your day job.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Travel plans are unreliable. Your schedule might be cancelled or delayed or changed. Disputes related to politics, religion and racial issues might suddenly flare up. You could learn something fascinating. However, people are entrenched in their views. (Including you.)


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Check your bank accounts because something might be amiss. Issues related to shared property, taxes, debt and anything you own jointly with others might hold some surprises. (Is the posse after you?) Be careful of impulsive decisions in financial matters.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today might be a rocky road with close relationships because people are impulsive, rebellious and excitable. Aye, there's the rub. Think before you speak or do anything and pause before you respond to others. Nevertheless, someone will surprise you.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your work routine will be interrupted, perhaps because of computer crashes, power outages, fire drills, cancelled meetings, staff shortages or university engineers streaking through the office. (They don't seem to do that anymore, do they? Pity.)


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Parents or people who work with children should be extra vigilant because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. It's also an unpredictable day regarding social events, vacations and romantic relationships. Cancellations and detours are par for the course.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your home routine will be interrupted. Small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur. You might run out of coffee or something essential. Be patient with family members to avoid domestic squabbles. A peaceful home is healthier and happier.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an accident-prone day for you so pay attention to everything you say and do. Think before you speak or act. Be mindful driving, walking and jogging. Power struggles are also likely, especially if you stick to your guns and are inflexible.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Guard your money and possessions because things are unpredictable. You might find money, you might lose money. Make sure something you own is not lost or stolen. Avoid quarrels about possessions and money if possible. Ironically, a power struggle with someone might make you dream up some clever, money-making ideas.



Actress Isla Fisher (1976) shares your birthday. You notice everything because you're a perfectionist. Many of you develop a technique to a professional level. You are realistic about your abilities and limitations. Others admire your cavalier attitude and ability to assemble or disassemble things. (You love to experiment.) Often your hobby becomes your vocation. Your year ahead will be lighter and more social and all your relationships will improve.
