Horoscope for Jan. 27, 2018


Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today is a bit of a crapshoot, which is why it’s tough to predict how conversations with bosses, parents and VIPs will go. They might thrill you or you might be horrified! Could go either way. Stay light on your feet so you’re ready to jump in either direction. Don’t overreact and don’t quit your day job.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Travel plans will be delayed, changed, canceled — something. Count on this. Or you might have to suddenly travel even though you did not expect to do so. This same unpredictability might impact higher education, school schedules, classrooms etc.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Make friends with your bank today to make sure you know what’s going on. Something unpredictable will impact business arrangements with inheritances, shared property and insurance issues. Don’t be caught napping when you should know what’s going on. (Gulp.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

A partner or close friend might throw you a curve ball today. They might be demanding or they might suggest something that is totally nuts or out of left field! At the least, you will be surprised! (You’re not that keen on surprises.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Equipment breakdowns, computer crashes, power outages and staff shortages are some things that might make your day go sideways today. Fortunately, you’re full of clever, original ideas and you are unusually ingenious. You might really impress someone! (That’s always fun.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Parents should keep an eye on their kids today because this is an accident-prone day, especially for your children. Social engagements and plans are also subject to change. A surprise invitation might come your way. Likewise, plans might be canceled or changed. Could be anything!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Small appliances might break down today or minor breakages could occur because something will change your daily routine. Almost certainly. A surprise visitor might knock at your door or perhaps a family member has some juicy news?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Do be careful because this is an accident-prone day for your sign. An accident doesn’t have to happen, but it does mean you might be distracted by something, which in turn affects your focus and concentration. Good day to meet new people and see new places!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Keep an eye on your money today because something unexpected might impact your finances and wealth. You might find money; you might lose money. Likewise, keep an eye on your possessions to protect them against loss, theft or damage. (You get the picture.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It’s easy to think outside of the box today which is why you are resourceful and coming up with new, fresh, different ideas. Sometimes different is not always better, but sometimes it is. (Hard to know, isn’t it?) Why not run it up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes? See which way the wind is blowing.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a restless day for you. You have that feeling you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. But hey, who cares because invariably it’s ugly and, of course, not in your size. Plus, there’s only one of them. Nevertheless, keep it until the next time and then you’ll have a pair.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A friend might amaze you today. Or you might amaze others with brilliant, original suggestions. You can count on something fresh and unusual to impact your relationships with friends and groups. Keep your eyes open! Perhaps a palace coup is brewing?

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Alan Cumming (1965) shares your birthday today. You have a childlike quality that attracts others to you. You are adventurous and you love to learn. This is a busy, social year when you will live life to the fullest! It’s a fun-loving year! You will want to nurture the happiness and beauty around you. Be grateful for what you have. Focus on the positive. Expect increased popularity and warm friendships that will delight.
