Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 19/8/2014 (1092 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT: After 3:40 a.m. today, we have the "all clear" today to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The moon is in Cancer.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You're in party mode, which means you need to rest sometime. How about today? This is the perfect day to cocoon at home and pull things in a little. A discussion with a female relative could be significant. Enjoy relaxing in private.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This is a busy day with errands, discussions, interaction with siblings and relatives, buying and selling plus taking short trips. You're curious, active and on the go! You might also learn by reading and studying. Do your homework.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Today your focus is on cash flow, earnings, money and the possessions you own. You might feel more attached than usual to something, which is why you want to take care of it or you don't want to lend it to anyone. Oh well.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Today the moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional. No biggie. However, it can also attract good luck to you -- perhaps not in a major way but it will give you the edge on something. This is the day to ask the universe for a favour.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

With the sun, Jupiter and Venus in your sign, you are out there flying your colours. That's why today you might want to pull in your reins a bit and seek out some privacy by working alone or behind the scenes. Take this time to restore and replenish yourself.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Conversation with a female friend could be significant today. Perhaps you want to discuss future plans or how you might attain future goals? You sense that things are going to open up for you soon, especially in about a year -- and you are so right.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Personal details about your private life are a bit public today, especially in the eyes of authority figures -- bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and even the police. (Don't text and drive.) And remember: Friends don't let friends drive naked.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You're hungry for adventure and a change of scenery, which is why this is a good day to travel, or at least, do something different to break up your usual routine. Talk to people from other cultures and different countries. Learn something new and fascinating!


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today you might be surprised at your emotional response to others -- it's intense! Or perhaps, you will attract someone who is intense and powerful to you. This is a fleeting influence but it can make you jealous and envious. It can also make you hot and sexy!


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today the moon is directly opposite your sign, which means your attention will focus on your personal relationships. If you have conflict with someone, the discussion will be emotional. Therefore, guard against knee-jerk reactions. Think before you speak. (You'll sound smarter.)


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Do remember to get more sleep because the sun is opposite your sign and the sun is your source of energy. When it's opposite your sign, it means it's as far away from you as it gets all year. Today you also want to attend to busy details and hygiene matters.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a playful, fun-loving day! Since things are going so well at work, why don't you reward yourself? Take a long lunch or enjoy fun plans at some point today or this evening. Mingle with friends. See sports events, movies, the theatre or musical performances. Flirt with someone.



Actress Amy Adams (1974) shares your birthday. Although quiet and soft-spoken, you are fun-loving, imaginative and lively. Sometimes something in your past seems to control your life. Good news! This is a year of accumulation, and perhaps one of the most powerful years of your life. You will reap what you have sown because it's a time of fruition and a good time to buy and sell.
