Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 9/11/2013 (1376 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

MOON ALERT Avoid shopping or making important decisions until 8:40 p.m. After that the moon moves from Aquarius into Pisces.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Life will resume normalcy when it comes to delays regarding shared property, inheritances, insurance matters, taxes and debt. Now the delays will be typical instead of excessive. The overall theme of your life now is one of self-improvement.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Although you might have been focused on ex-partners and friends from your past, you will slowly start to refocus on your future. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. In fact, your life will start to get easier as Mercury opposite your sign starts to move forward now.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

The efficiency of your day-to-day work will improve now because Mercury is moving forward. However, it has not caught up to where it was when it first went retrograde. This won't happen until Nov. 27. After that, you can buy Microsoft if it's for sale.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

This is a poor day to make financial decisions, especially decisions related to shared property, inheritances and insurance. Just keep things light because it's a goofy day. It's good for creative activities, but not for serious, analytical decision-making.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might feel confused talking to partners and close friends. The moon is opposite your sign, floating "loose" in the sky from the point of view of astrology. It makes people feel lost, and bewildered, and indecisive. At least, I think so.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You want to be efficient. You might start the day with a To Do list. All I can say is go easy on yourself. This is a moon alert day, which means shortages and little errors, along with moments of indecision, will plague you. Lower your expectations and send out for dark chocolate.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a fabulous, creative, fun-loving day. Artists, teachers and anyone who works in show business, the entertainment world, the hospitality industry and professional sports will be full of original ideas that are worth consideration. Don't act on them yet.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a perfect day to lounge around home and read the newspaper. You won't feel too much like working and it's a poor day to shop or to make important decisions. (Of course, one can buy food because one must eat.)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You will likely feel at loose ends and might not be sure of what you want to do. It's as if you almost have to look in your address book or check out your contacts on your phone to find out who your friends are. Everything feels willy-nilly. Don't worry. You are not alone.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a poor day to make important financial decisions or to shop for anything other than your personal needs like food or gas. However, it's a great day to shmooze with others and laugh it up with your pals. Don't volunteer for anything.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

If you check the moon alert above, you will see that the moon is in your sign but it's an "off" day for the moon. This will make you feel a bit at loose ends. You might start doing one thing and then decide to do another. However, creative activity will be rewarding.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might feel a draft because the moon is in the hidden part of your chart. You want to experience new things, but how to do it is the question. Just go with the flow. Don't demand too much from yourself and others.


Actress Ellen Pompeo (1969) shares your birthday. Your strength and confidence are sexy and attractive to others. However, personally, you are on a quest to transform your life because you want become a better person. You are quick to learn and sometimes choose isolation to do this. This year something you've been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new.
