Horoscope for Sept. 5, 2018

Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your focus on home and family is strong today. In fact, you might hear good news about something that benefits your home or your family and a financial or practical way. Keep your pockets open! Meanwhile, a conversation with a parent or someone in a position of authority might be intense. Oops.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

On the whole, this is an upbeat, positive, optimistic day! Relations with others — partners, close friends and members of the general public — are warm and fuzzy. However, avoid subjects like politics, religion and race because these will be intense and quickly will get out of hand. Not good.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Look for ways to boost your income today because this is possible. You might get a better-paying job or a raise in your current job, or you might see ways to make money on the side. However, discussions about shared property and inheritances will be intense and possibly difficult. Take note.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today the moon is still in your sign; however, now it is dancing with lucky, moneybags Jupiter. Admittedly, it opposes big daddy Pluto. (Quite another matter.) You will enjoy social occasions and playful activities with children; however, avoid intense discussions with partners and close friends (for your own good).

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’ve been thinking about money lately. (Where is it?) Nevertheless, today you have private dreams that are ambitious about your home or a potential real estate situation. Meanwhile, certain health issues cannot be ignored. Oh well, it was ever thus.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today is a mixed bag dealing with friends and groups. In one way, your relationships with others will be expansive and optimistic. You will meet new faces and hear new ideas. Nevertheless, a power struggle with someone (could be a romantic partner or about kids or the arts) could arise. Grrrr.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Avoid power struggles with parents and bosses today. (This includes the police.) Power struggles will do you no favor. On the other hand, the right words at the right time to the right person could boost your income. Oh yes!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Travel plans look so appealing! You want to do anything to broaden your horizons and get a chance to learn something new and exciting. However, be careful that your enthusiasm for new ideas doesn’t get you into an argument with someone. Back away from this.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Disputes about inheritances and shared property might be intense today. Even nasty. Ironically, if you take a different approach, you might achieve a result that actually benefits you because both possibilities exist. What’s it going to be? The red pill or the blue pill?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

In one way today, you will get along fabulously with others. Relations with partners and close friends are upbeat and friendly. And yet, there is the potential for a real power struggle. Don’t ruin your day. Keep things light.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You feel optimistic about introducing improvements and reforms at work, and you might also have great ideas about how to improve your health as well. So far, so good. For some reason, someone will object to your suggestions. And their objections are strong! Think about this before you begin.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Passionate romantic disagreements as well as difficulties with children — hissy fits and meltdowns —a are possible today. Nevertheless, fun, upbeat possibilities exist as well! Go with what feels good and avoid power struggles.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Rose McGowan (1973) shares your birthday today. You are frank, open and progressive in your outlook on life. You like to be friendly and sociable. This is the perfect year to explore meditation, yoga or any discipline that will help you to get a better understanding of who you are. This is also a year of teaching and learning. What you learn this year will be crucial for your progress and success next year.
