Today's horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 22/8/2014 (1096 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT: Caution: avoid shopping or making important decisions after 12:15 a.m. A fun goofy day! The moon is in Leo.


Aries (March 21-April 19)

Always remember that you are the artisan of the zodiac. You are creative, inventive and can do anything with your hands. You love to discover anything new and puncture the mystique of things. Today is a wonderfully creative day. Go to it!


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This is the perfect day to putter around home and relax. Have a second cup of coffee and read the Sunday paper. Family discussions will take place, especially with female relatives. Savour this chance to just hand out and cocoon at home. Sit cross-legged and sing "Ohm on the Range."


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Today is creative day for writers and anyone who communicates for a living by selling, marketing, acting and teaching. It's a poor day to shop or make important decisions. Expect delays and shortages throughout the day. Enjoy fun conversations with siblings.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Be careful. You are focused on money and financial issues right now but today is a poor day to make financial decisions. Nevertheless, because you're in a creative frame of mind, you can put a fresh spin on something. Write down your ideas to consider them tomorrow.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today the moon is still in your sign; however, because it's a moon Alert day, accomplishing tasks in a productive way will be a challenge. You would rather play and goof off. It's a perfect day for a drive, or a visit to a park, or just hanging out with friends.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You can either keep a low profile today or enjoy schmoozing with others. Once again -- it's your choice. The sun and Mercury in your sign push you into social situations. However, today the moon is still hiding, which makes you want to withdraw into privacy.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You are a social sign and today is a social day for you, especially with female companions and friends. Enjoy the company of others. Clubs, groups, classes and professional associations will appeal because you want to interact with people who interest you. (Especially if they take you out for brunch.)


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Authority figures (parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs and the police) have you on their radar today. (Gulp, perhaps literally!) Enjoy discussions with people in power but do not agree to anything important. Do not volunteer for anything. Wait until tomorrow to commit.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a restless, goofy day for you. You will enjoy travelling and exploring new turf. You will also enjoy talking to people from different backgrounds and other countries. Discussions about politics, philosophy, religion and profound ideas will intrigue you. Postpone important decisions until tomorrow.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Even though you are interested in issues related to taxes, debt, shared property, inheritances and such -- just do research. Wait until tomorrow to make a decision regarding these matters. Today is a moon-alert day, so just bide your time and get your facts.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The moon is still opposite your sign, which means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Today however, it's a moon-alert day, which means things are loosey-goosey and up in the air. Enjoy casual conversations. Relax. Postpone important decisions until tomorrow (including purchases).


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today might be mildly frustrating because in one way, you want to work and get things done. However, because it's a moon-alert day -- efficiency will suffer! Don't expect too much from yourself or others. Just relax and take it easy. There's no time like the pleasant.



Actor/activist Stephen Fry (1957) shares your birthday. You have an investigative mind and love to untangle mysteries. In your quest for the truth, you study people, societies, dig into the earth and plumb the depths of the seas. You will face a major decision this year. Save your money in the first half of the year and cut down on overhead expenses. This will help you later.
