Today's horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 15/8/2014 (1098 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT: We have the "all clear" today to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Taurus.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

This is the perfect day to practise patience because the moon is in your money house opposing first Mars then Saturn. Basically, this means that financial obstacles or people in power who affect your finances will irritate you. Oh dear. Patience!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Today the Moon is in your sign in a harsh relationship with two other planets. This can make you angry or discouraged. You feel you have to justify your actions to others, which is always a drag. Close relationships are difficult. Fortunately, these difficulties are only for a matter of hours.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

You might feel discouraged today. Life is difficult. No matter what you try to do, especially at work, it seems as if you meet with obstacles or people who block your efforts. Don't worry because this is just a brief dark cloud on your horizon. Gone by tomorrow.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You find it difficult dealing with females today, as well as children and romantic partners. It's hard to maintain your cool because others resist you or do whatever they can to make life difficult for you. (Like whaaat?) This is just how it appears.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a poor day to ask anyone in a position of authority for permission or approval. They will shoot you down. Don't even go there. Fortunately, this difficult influence is only a matter of hours. But it happens twice in the day. (Gulp.)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Travel plans might be delayed or cancelled today. Discussions related to the media, publishing, higher education, medicine and the law are discouraging. No matter how you try to spread your wings and fly, someone tells you why you can't do it. (It's just for today.)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a poor day to ask for a mortgage or a loan or to borrow something. Everyone is tightfisted. Don't take this personally it's just what it is. Even you are reluctant to share what you own with others. This only applies to today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The best way to approach today is not to expect too much from yourself or others. Be patient and easy-going. Expect minimal co-operation and don't be surprised if you don't even get that. Rise above all pettiness because whatever happens is only for today.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

If you are at work today or you need to tackle certain tasks or errands, you will encounter difficulties and obstacles that irritate you. Don't overreact or take this personally. The entire world is encountering minor annoyances and difficulties today. (Sad to say, some far greater than others.)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Romance is in the toilet today. Don't expect too much from your main squeeze. Be patient. Likewise, be patient dealing with children because all social and so-called "fun" situations will have their challenges, but these will be brief downers. Nothing serious.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Avoid important discussions with family members today, especially authority figures in the family. Don't ask for favours. In turn, be patient with others because people are easily annoyed with each other today. To avoid arguments, keep your head down and your powder dry.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

It's all too easy to be discouraged and annoyed with others today, especially siblings, neighbours and daily contacts. You might feel unloved and unappreciated. But know that others feel the same way! Tomorrow is a much easier day. Just go with the flow right now and demonstrate grace under pressure.


Singer/actress Madonna (1958) shares your birthday. You are vibrant and dynamic and often outrageous. You are a sensualist who wants to get the most out of life. You are driven to achieve your dreams and your ability to seduce will sometimes help you. Many of you are attracted to danger. This year will be a testing year for you. Work hard to build or construct something that is useful.
