Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 16/6/2014 (1163 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT Avoid shopping or making important decisions for a mere 30 minutes from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. After that the Moon moves from Aquarius into Pisces


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

For the next month, Mercury retrograde is back in the part of your chart that deals with communications and ground transportation. These are the very areas where Mercury retrograde will create havoc. Expect problems and silly delays.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Financial matters and cheques in the mail will be plagued with errors and delays for the next month because Mercury retrograde is now slipping back into the sign it just came out of. Stay alert to be ahead of inevitable problems.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Even though Mercury was in Gemini from May 8- 28, today it returns to Gemini (by slipping backwards) in its retrograde form. It will stay there until July 13. So if you start having moments of déj vu, you're not losing it -- the universe is actually causing this.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

As retrograde Mercury falls back into a previous sign, this will help you do research you might want to do. It will also help you find solutions to old problems and discover answers you've been looking for. See if you can use this to your advantage.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Old friends and people you haven't seen for a while will materialize in your life in the next four weeks. This could be stimulating and entertaining, or not. It might resurrect a useful contact or give you interesting feedback on others. You never know.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today Mercury retrograde slips back into the sign it was in last month, which puts you in contact with old bosses or parents you haven't seen for a while. In other words, authority figures from your past will be back in your life for some reason.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

In the next month, travel plans could grind to a halt. Your enthusiasm about a particular project might falter. However, when it comes to writing projects, or publishing something, or anything to do with the media, medicine and the law, whatever you already started can be finished quickly and easily.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

If you want to finish loose details with inheritances, insurance matters, taxes, debt or shared property, the next month is the perfect time for this. Retrograde Mercury will help you wrap up old business in these areas.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Even though Mercury was opposite your sign from May 8-28, it's back again. It's been in the sign of Cancer, but now retrograde Mercury has slipped back to Gemini, which is 180 degrees opposite from you. This will attract ex-spouses, ex-partners and old friends into your life. "Hi there!" (Gulp.) Fake it.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Expect delays and confused communications in your job in the coming month. Knowing this is inevitable, you can give yourself extra time to have wiggle room to deal with these pesky, foolish mistakes. Aagghh. Double-check everything.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Old flames will be in contact in the next month, or you might just spot someone on the street while you drive by. Well, we all have a past. The main thing is to guarantee a happy future.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Family reunions might take place in the next month. Because retrograde Mercury is slipping back into part of your chart that deals with family and home, you will see family members more than usual, and you also might do home repairs and repair what you've been wanting to do for ages.



Actor John Cho (1972) shares your birthday. You are shrewd and patient. You have excellent financial savvy. You understand investments and have the patience to wait for things to pay off in the future. (You are in it for the long-haul.) This is why many of you are collectors as well. This year you will benefit through your association with others. Make friends. Join clubs. Help people.
