Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 5/4/2014 (1229 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT We have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The moon is in Cancer.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You want to do things in a big way at home, but something might backfire. Or a family argument will break out because things are excessive or too much for someone. Alternatively, you might want to break free of female family energy. Sheesh!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You feel restless, and yet, you are enthusiastic about something. Be careful that your enthusiasm doesn't run away with you so that something crashes later, especially behind the scenes. (Possibly, what crashes is you.)

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Bright ideas that you get from someone else might help your earnings. Or alternatively, someone's unusual suggestion might drain a lot of money from you because you decide to spend big or buy something major. It's a tricky day. Try to hold onto your cash.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Something building up within you might make you want to break free of restraints and authority. A boss might be too much to take, which makes you want to part ways. Or perhaps an unusual authority figure inspires you? It could go either way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Something going on behind the scenes could cause travel plans to change, be cancelled or be delayed. Similar surprises with medicine and legal matters or with higher education, publishing and the media might also occur. Stay chill.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Keep an eye on your bank account and things related to shared property, taxes, debt, inheritances and insurance matters. Someone might promise more than they can deliver or your expectations might be too high. Be ready to act.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Difficulties with partners and close friends might arise because someone in a position of power favours you. Is someone close to you jealous? Or perhaps others have trouble handling your great PR and stellar reputation at this time. The litmus test is seeing how your friends handle your success.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Expect interruptions to your job perhaps with computer crashes, power outages, fire drills, cancelled meetings and staff shortages. It's a crapshoot. Be ready to do some damage control.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Parent should be vigilant because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. It's also a restless, unstable day for romantic partners, which might mean tears, slammed doors and hasty exits. Someone might indulge you with gifts and money, which in turn, creates a problem. (It could happen.)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Something unexpected will take place at home or within your family dynamic. A friend or partner might be excessive in some way, perhaps very generous, and yet at the same time, family arguments or upsets are at play as well. It's so hard to keep everyone happy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an accident-prone time for you so pay attention to everything you say and do. Think before you speak or act. The upside, however, is that you might be full of brilliant, original ideas. Your ability to put a new slant on things is excellent. (Which it is most of the time because you guys have your genius moments.) Oh yeah.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Be careful that your enthusiasm to have fun and explore good times does not have a high price. You are keen to party, enjoy sports and playful times with children -- nevertheless, something untoward might happen to your cash flow or something you own. Keep your eyes open.


Actor John Ratzenberger (1947) shares your birthday. You love to explore and experiment with whatever you find around you. This is why you excel in science or any field involving the discovery of anything new and fresh. You like to get to the bottom of things. You do your homework and you rely on logic. Nevertheless, you are a visionary. Good news! This year might be one of the most powerful years of your life.
