Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 3/7/2013 (1508 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT After 4:30 a.m. we have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The moon is in Gemini.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Make an effort to think clearly because you could be confused or even deceived about something. Family matters and relatives from the past might distract you now. However, this is a good time for home repairs you've been meaning to address. ("Hi, it's me again.")


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Be careful about financial matters because something might confuse or deceive you. Double-check everything. Make sure you know how much you have in the bank. Make sure you know how much you're spending. Review bills and receipts and count your change. Don't believe everything you hear.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

This might be a confusing day for you because the moon is in your sign but it's at odds with fuzzy Neptune. This makes you feel tired or unsure of yourself. You might not hear others clearly or you could assume something incorrectly. Someone might even deceive you. (Yikes!)


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Things seem vague. It's hard to pin down others and it's even hard to pin down what you really want yourself. It's confusing because Mercury is retrograde in your sign causing errors and silly mistakes. Plus today the moon is at odds with fuzzy Neptune. Go slowly and carefully.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Enjoy conversations with others, especially female acquaintances. But be careful in your response because you could be misunderstood and, in turn, you might misunderstand others. Today is full of unclear communications and assumptions. (Dontcha love it?)


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Think twice before you speak to anyone in authority, especially females. (Yes, this includes mom.) They might misinterpret what you say or you might misunderstand what they want. There's a strong chance of confusion, even deception. Tread carefully.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Although you feel distracted by vague thoughts, you will enjoy beautiful places because your appreciation of beauty is heightened. Visit parks, museums, art galleries or gorgeous architectural buildings. But be leery of anyone who tries to politically or religiously persuade you about anything.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is not an ideal day to decide how to share an inheritance or divide something or deal with shared property. Things are a bit murky and confusing. In fact, accidental or intentional deception is possible. Just tread water.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You're in a dreamy state of mind, which can be pleasant but it's not ideal for important decisions. You feel sensitive to your surroundings, which is a good thing. Nevertheless, avoid important decisions and agreements with partners and close friends.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be careful about chemicals, as well as drugs -- recreational or prescription. Today is a vaguely confusing day for many of us, but for your sign it could actually impact your health, especially through chemistry. "Better living through chemistry" is not the case.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Parents should be vigilant about children because you might be confused about what they're doing -- and they might be confused! With young children, guard against chemical poisoning or eating bad food. Romantic couples should be careful about promises they make to each other. (Are you lying?)


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Conversations with a female relative might be confusing. Don't say something just to please someone or avoid an unpleasant confrontation because the truth is going to come out anyhow. Furthermore, don't jump to conclusions because conversations are confusing. Easy does it.



Cartoonist/sculptor/engineer/inventor Rube Goldberg (1983-1970) shares your birthday. You're interested in others and whatever they're doing, which is why many of you are involved with groups. Personally, you aspire to leave your mark in the world. You are faithful to loved ones and value your family roots. You often work in isolation for long periods of time on certain projects. Good news! This year will be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
