Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 9/6/2014 (1166 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 until 9:15 p.m. The moon is in Scorpio.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

The day blows hot and cold. Earlier in the day, you feel concerned about shared property, taxes, debt, inheritances or insurance matters. Someone older or more experienced might rain on your parade. Yet later, you're laughing. Go figure.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Don't let others put you down. A friend or partner might be critical of you. Who needs this? Not you. The good news is even though relations are strained midday, by evening everyone is backslapping happy.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Someone at work might grate on your nerves. This person could be older or more experienced and critical. Grrr. Just let it go because tonight work-related travel or something upbeat will turn your attitude right around.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Children are an increased responsibility. Romantic partners might be at odds with each other or disagree about money matters or the division of labour. (Something to do with responsibilities.) By evening, everyone is smiling again. Who knew?


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might feel gloomy, restricted or bummed out about something, especially at home or dealing with a family member. Fear not, by evening you're laughing with others enjoying feeings of camaraderie.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might be worried when the moon is lined up with Saturn. Fortunately, this is a brief dark cloud on your horizon because by the evening, you feel great when the moon lines up with jovial Jupiter. Tra la, tra la, it is to laugh.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Money worries have you in their grip. Yet ironically, by tonight, the moon is lined up with moneybags Jupiter, and like an about face, you're happy. Plus, it's a great time for business!


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The moon is in your sign doing a Jekyll and Hyde thing. First it lines up with Saturn, which makes you feel lonely, glum and cut off from others. ("Nobody loves me.") But by nightfall, it lines up with Jupiter and you're happy as a clam. (I've always been suspicious of the clam reference, especially since I love chowder.)


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Continue to keep a low profile. In fact, you will want to do so because you might feel a bit down or lonely. Don't worry because by evening, you feel pleasantly pleased with how your life is unfolding. Suddenly, there is hope!


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Don't be discouraged if someone older or more experienced, and probably a female, is on your case. Just suck it up. This will be a temporary situation, because by evening, you feel popular and loved by others. Someone will completely turn your day around.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Conversations with authority figures might be a bummer. Someone could discourage you or refuse what you want. But hang in there because by evening, something happens that completely reverses this negative experience.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

A teacher or a member of government or someone in a position of authority might be on your case. You'll feel uncomfortable -- maybe downright discouraged -- but don't take this seriously because by tonight, travel or educational opportunities bring a smile to your face.



Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (1921) shares your birthday. You are talented, capable and bravely face the challenges that life throws at you, along with its blessings. You are often attracted to the mysterious, dark side. You work hard to create the kind of environment you want around you. You are always down-to-earth and human. This year a major change might take place, perhaps as significant as whatever occurred around 2005. Be bold!
