Horoscope for Feb. 11, 2018


Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

What a difference a day makes! This morning it’s not that easy to deal with parents, bosses and VIPs. Everyone is hanging black crepe paper or telling you why you can’t do something. (Don’t you love it?) Keep your head down and your powder dry. Oh yeah.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Discussions about politics, religion and race will be depressing today. Someone in authority will stand up on a soapbox and read the riot act to you. This is no fun. Travel plans might also encounter obstacles. Hang in there.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You might have difficulty accessing money, funds or the support you expected from others today. What does this mean? Is the well dry? No, this is just a temporary setback because someone is blocking your plans. Just sit this one out and wait for another day.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Relations with partners and close friends are a bit dismal today because someone might be depressed or you might have to deal with a challenging situation. It’s true that not every day is a bowl of cherries. Sometimes it’s a bowl of pits. Oh well.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Work will be onerous today. If you actually have to show up for a slave-wage job today, your boss might be strict and demanding. (Isn’t this fun?) Likewise, your health might worry you, especially something to do with your teeth or your joints and your bones. (More fun!) Courage.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Children could be an increased responsibility today. Oh well, this goes with the territory. Party plans might not look so great. This is the kind of day where someone or something might rain on your parade. Hey, you have a positive week ahead! You can handle this.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

An older family member might be on your case today. Or there might be other difficulties at home that cause you some concern. Just roll up your sleeves and deal with what is on your plate. Be an adult. Not every day is a winner. (Be assured that tomorrow looks great!)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Don’t fall into worry mode today because it’s so easy to do. Basically, worry is a habit. Remember that saying: “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere.” Got it? Good. Remember: You are the most strong-willed sign in the zodiac.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You love get-rich-quick schemes. What you don’t like is get-rich-slow schemes. And what you really don’t like is we-don’t-get-rich-at-all schemes. This is what today might feel like because obstacles are in the way when it comes to dealing with finances and possessions. Stay chill.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today the Moon is in your sign lined up with your ruler Saturn, which is no picnic. It makes you timid, cautious and possibly depressed. Your best choice is to work hard because duty and orderliness will please you. Tomorrow you can be wild and crazy.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might prefer to work alone today. Go off by yourself or behind the scenes. For one thing, a lot of people are in a bad mood (and you need this like a fish needs a bicycle). Keep your focus steady. In fact, you will accomplish a lot of routine work if you want to.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Someone older might have advice for you today. Admittedly, they might also have criticism. Yeah, it’s that kinda day. But you know what? Everyone is undergoing this same influence today. Fortunately, it’s fleeting and gone by tomorrow. Whew!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Damian Lewis (1971) shares your birthday today. You are ambitious and have a natural sense of authority. You can also be competitive. This year is about personal responsibilities, family and service to others. Take care of yourself so you can help others. Explore the arts. Enroll in a class. Nurture relationships you value. Personalize your home with touches of these relationships.
