Today's Horoscope

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 2/8/2014 (1110 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 Scorpio.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Yesterday you were full of creative ideas that could not be implemented. Today, you can act. In fact, you strut your stuff, you might change someone's opinion of you for the better, especially someone in a position of authority. Now your talent can shine!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Today the moon is opposite your sign, which means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. This simply requires a little accommodation, compromise and a good-natured sense of give-and-take. No biggie. This could improve partnerships and friendships.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

This is a good day to clean the garage, the attic, the basement or your locker -- that sort of thing. Tidy up and find your bedroom floor. Any effort to get better organized will make you feel better and will improve your scene both at work and at home.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

This is a powerful day for romance and social excitement. Enjoy sports events, the theatre, movies, long lunches, early dinners, picnics and fun with children. No matter what you do today, squeeze in a little time for fun. Laughter is healthy!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You can do a few things to improve family relationships today; and you can also do something to improve where you live, particularly areas related to garbage, recycling, laundry, plumbing and bathrooms. Get rid of what you don't need. Tidy up.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your communications with others are direct and to the point today, which is why this is a strong day for writers, teachers, actors and anyone who needs to sell or promote something. You're prepared to tell it like it is. You're also ready to research and get to the bottom line.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Write down some of your clever moneymaking ideas today because they just might fly. Some of you will see a new job opportunity. Almost all of you can see new applications for something you already own. Could that old Volkswagen be a floor lamp?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because the moon is in your sign today, you might be more emotional in your response to others. This is because the moon is very connected to our feelings, and when the moon is in your sign once a month for about two days, you "feel" it! Capisce?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You have a strong urge to travel and push the envelope because you want to expand your horizons. Today however, you need to relax and hide. Work alone or behind the scenes or cocoon at home. Use this day to replenish and restore yourself.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your interactions with others, especially females, will be memorable today. Oh yeah. That's because you attract powerful people to you today. Good day to discuss your future goals with someone.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Personal details about your private life might be public today for some reason. People seem to know something about your family or your home situation -- stuff like that. It does not appear to be a problem, but you might want to be aware of this in case you have to do some damage control.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Do something different today. Go someplace you've never been before. Satisfy your sense of longing for a bit of adventure and an opportunity to learn something new. Think about how fortunate you are that you can seek out change instead of having it thrust upon you.


Actor Martin Sheen (1940) shares your birthday today. You are courageous and idealistic and will fight for the underdog. You like excitement and are sometimes attracted to danger, especially if it involves the rescue of someone or something. Although you appear cavalier, in fact, you are not casual about anything; you embrace important issues. This year is the beginning of a fresh, new, exciting cycle for you. Open any door!
