Today's horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 14/2/2014 (1278 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 Libra.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

This is not the easiest of days to deal with friends and people in group situations -- classes, meetings, conferences or casual get-togethers. People are inclined to be grouchy, critical and negative. Oy vey. You need this like a fish needs a bicycle.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This is a poor day to ask bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs for permission or approval. Trust me. Save your breath. The response will be rejection, criticism or at best, skepticism. Someone older might question your ability or technique. Try to sidestep this if you can.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Your efforts to study something or travel or talk to people from other countries or different cultures will meet with obstacles today. Either people will refuse or be unco-operative or not get your drift. Travel plans might be blocked as well. (Fun, eh?)

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Mercury retrograde is upon us, wreaking havoc for your sign with regard to red-tape details and paperwork concerning financial transactions, or the wealth and resources of others. Double-check everything to do with shared property, insurance matters, inheritances and debt. You can do routine work with precision.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

People are too quick to see what is wrong with a situation today instead of what is right. This makes communications difficult. It's not a good day for important transactions or negotiations. Someone older or more experienced will probably shoot down your ideas.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Don't expect easy co-operation from others at work today, especially supervisors or older, experienced co-workers. The good news, however, is that your critical faculties are sharp, which means you can tackle tasks that require disciplined thinking. "I'm on it!"

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Creative projects and anything to do with sports, the arts, movies, the entertainment world and the hospitality industry plus working with children will be challenging today. For starters, people are pessimistic and critical. Hey, things are not as bad as they appear. Patience.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

An older family member or an authority figure in your life might rain on your parade today. Don't take this personally because it's happening everywhere. This is the kind of day where everybody's glass is half-empty. Offers to refill will not help. Postpone important family discussions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might fall into worry mode or pessimistic thinking today. Try to avoid this. On the other hand, they say that an optimist believes we live in the best possible world -- and a pessimist fears this is true. Ah yes, it's always darkest before it gets pitch black.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a poor day for important financial transactions because it will be tough to get co-operation, endorsement or money from others. You yourself might feel discouraged about your finances. Fear not, this will pass quickly. (Especially if you drink lots of water.)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today Mercury is in your sign at odds with stern Saturn. Everyone you talk to sounds like Eeyore. "It will probably rain." Rein in your spending. Go slowly. Keep track of your finances and assets and believe that things will look better tomorrow, which they will.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You feel worried or concerned about something today. You might be disappointed in the lack of operation from others. Or you might be fearful about what someone think of you. Maybe you haven't done your homework? Relax -- the next two days are much better.


Actor Matt Dillon (1964) shares your birthday. You have a basic philosophy of life and set of core beliefs that guide you. Because of this, you have focus and direction. You are not distracted by what does not interest you. Personally, you are magnetic, attractive and alive. This year something you've been involved with for nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new.
