Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 18/8/2014 (1096 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT: Until 9:45 p.m. today, we have the "all clear" today to do business and make important decisions The moon is in Gemini.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

This is a good day for communicating with others. Yesterday had its upside but it was also confusing. Today there is less static in the air, which makes this a good day to talk to siblings, neighbours and daily contacts. You're still in party mode and ready to vacation.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This is a more solid day because the confusion of yesterday is clarified. You might want to take care of something you own by repairing or cleaning it. You're also interested in home decorating and exploring real-estate options. (You are the country squire who loves mortgage-free land.)


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

The moon is in your sign today, which bodes well for you. Yes, it makes you more emotional, but it also makes you luckier. Fortunately, the confusion of yesterday has subsided. Ask for what you want because you just might get it.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You continue to work behind the scenes, perhaps because you are strongly focused on money and financial matters and you want to do this privately. You never take finances lightly. You respect money and you like to use it wisely.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Discussions with a female friend are friendly today. You might exchange a lot of information, which in turn, could cause you to modify your future goals. Who knows? Incidentally, this is an excellent week to shop for wardrobe goodies.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Ironically, although you seek privacy right now, you are high-viz because the moon today is at the top of your chart. This means people notice you and are interested in details about your private life. Discussions with authority figures might also be public.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Do something different today. Shake up your usual routine. Take a different route to or from work. Go somewhere different for lunch. Travel if you can or at least, talk to people from other countries and different cultures to expand your experience of life.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a solid day (better than yesterday) to discuss shared property, taxes, debt, insurance matters and anything you own jointly with others. Quite likely, you will be in the driver's seat. Relations with authority figures are particularly smooth now, possibly even romantic.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be prepared to go more than halfway when dealing with others today because the moon is opposite your sign. Fortunately, it's on good terms with the sun, so relations with partners and close friends are co-operative and friendly. Nevertheless, compromise is necessary.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You can get a lot done at work today, because you're in a better frame of mind than yesterday. This is good day to discuss budgets, supplies, shared property and the wealth and resources of others. It's also good day to ask for something -- more money or more support.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a fun, playful day, which does not have the confusion of yesterday. Enjoy sports events, long lunches, interesting discussions with female friends and playful times with children. (It's easy for you to be smooth and charming with Venus opposite your sign.)


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Family discussions will go well today. In part, you're in a good mood because everything related to your job is working well, and you're pleased. This is good time to explore travel plans, as well as options related to publishing, higher education, medicine and the law.



Fashion designer Coco Chanel (1883-1971) shares your birthday. Your self-confidence is what helps you promote your often brilliant ideas; plus you are ambitious and patient enough to wait for the right opportunity to act. You are very private about your personal life. Go slowly this year. There is something important that you will learn. The first half of year will seem slow; but soon, your efforts of the past six years will start to show results!
