Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 2/6/2014 (1174 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 9:30 a.m. The moon is in Leo.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Although the day might have difficulties or disappointments in the morning, later it's just a goofy day full of creative, artistic possibilities. Avoid major purchases and big decisions. See moon alert above. This is a great day for arts, crafts and creative adventures.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This is the perfect day to hide at home if you can. Relations with authority figures or anyone older might be difficult in the morning, but later in the day, it's sort of a free-for-all. You'll enjoy puttering around where you live making creative changes, or just hanging out with family members.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

This is a moon-alert all day, which means it's a poor day to make major decisions and or spend money on anything other than food or gas. Just take it easy. You might be worried about something this morning because someone discourages you. Grrr.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Money worries in the beginning of the day might be a drag. Or you might lose something you own, which is also a drag. This is a poor day to shop or spend money on anything other than food or gas. (See the moon alert above.) Forewarned is forearmed.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

The moon is in your sign, but it is floating free, which is excellent for creativity, but poor for linear, analytical thinking. That's why you might virtually feel adrift and indecisive. Avoid major purchases and important decisions. Obviously, if you have to shop for food or gas, do it.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This morning you might feel challenged because of obstacles or worries. Don't let this get you down because it will pass quickly. In fact, the afternoon is kind of loosey-goosey and silly. You feel uncertain about what to do next. Just avoid important decisions and major purchases.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a good day for a confidential conversation with a female acquaintance. However, the morning, it might be tough because difficulties about money and cash flow could arise. This is a poor day to make an important decision about financial matters. See moon alert above.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It will be difficult to keep a low profile. In fact, issues but your personal life might be public. Discussions with others, especially authority figures, will not go well in the morning. Avoid these if you can. Just coast. Read the moon alert above.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are full of escapist tendencies. (Maybe you hadn't noticed?) The morning might be discouraging or gloomy, but as the day wears on, you want some thrills and a chance to talk to someone exciting. Well, at least interesting. Well, at least, not boring.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Even though you might be focused on shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and financial issues, this is a poor day to make decisions regarding these matters. Definitely postpone these decisions until tomorrow. See moon alert above.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Be conciliatory, patient and tolerant with others because the moon is opposite your sign and you simply have no choice. Avoid difficult discussions with authority figures this morning. (They won't go well.) Keep things light this afternoon. Shmooze if you can.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

It's not easy to be efficient and productive. You might feel at loose ends and not know which direction to go. Don't worry because everyone feels this way. Discussions with authority figures might be difficult this morning. Just coast. Wear water wings and stay away from the deep end.



Actor James Purefoy (1964) shares your birthday. You are generous and warm-hearted; you care for the underdog. You are also witty and verbally adroit. Because you have a strong need to communicate to others, many of you are writers, poets, actors and performers. This year is a time of exploration, growth and learning. Imagine yourself like the bud of a plant. Do not take action, not yet.
