Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 15/4/2014 (1222 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 Scorpio.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

The day is a mixed bag. Your ruler Mars is opposing Mercury, which is in your sign. This makes you argumentative. Well, it makes others argumentative, too. Fortunately, the moon is so well placed, it will ameliorate harsh feelings and soften everything in a cosy way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You might feel you have to fight to get your way at work because others are too quick to oppose you. Fortunately, a partner or close friend, or even a member of the general public, will sweet talk you into feeling good.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

You might be a tad pushy with others or you might attract people who are verbally aggressive. This could turn into a friendly joust or an uncomfortable argument. Fortunately, things at work go well. In fact, they are so good you might boost your income.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

This is not an ideal day to pitch your ideas to someone in authority. Conversations with authority figures (bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs) will easily turn into arguments. However, relations with children and romantic partners are warm. Go figure.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

It will help you to know, right off the bat, that this is an argumentative day for many people. Now that you are armed with this knowledge, you can dodge, duck and feint. You can run the other way if you see a fight starting in someone's eyes. Just refuse to get involved.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Disputes about money and possessions might arise. People are very prickly about money. (They'll discuss their sex life quicker than their bank balance.) Therefore, tread carefully. Fortunately, your ability to shmooze and talk to others is superb.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Do your best to sidestep arguments with friends and partners because they will easily erupt. Fortunately, there are some ameliorating circumstances. You can do well with business and finance. You might even boost your earnings or alternately, you might make a lovely purchase that pleases you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

If you delegate to others at work or get too bossy, disputes will arise. No question. You should know this before you open your mouth. On the other hand, the moon is in your sign dancing with lucky Jupiter. This makes you warm and friendly to everyone.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Parents and people who work with kids have to be patient with young people. Hissy fits and meltdowns are likely. Or they will challenge you. Instead, focus on other areas because help from others will have to come to you in a secret way.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Do what you can to keep the family peace because domestic squabbles can easily arise. Instead, focus your attention on friends and groups. Run out of the house and shmooze with others because this will be the successful part of your day.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

It's so easy to disagree with daily contacts, and this quality in itself could make this an accident-prone day. (Anger is a major distraction.) Instead, divert your attention to talking to bosses, parents and people in authority. Make your pitch because they will be receptive.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Travel opportunities look wonderful. You will enjoy exploring new places and talking to people from different backgrounds. Publishing, the media, medicine and the law are all beneficial areas to explore. Don't get sidetracked arguing about money.



Actress Ellen Barkin (1954) shares your birthday. You need humour in your life. (You know the value of laughter.) You are generous, warm-hearted and accepting. You are also loyal to friends and family. Importantly, you believe in going for your dreams. This year, something you've been involved with for nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new. It's a closing of things to pave the way for the future.
