ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear today to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Virgo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today will be full of exciting twists which could bring you into contact with new faces, new places and new ideas. In fact, some of these ideas could be the beginning of a new financial adventure, especially involving self-employment or something high-tech.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is a thrilling day with exciting possibilities. However, for some of you it’s a bit tricky, financially speaking. Be careful. If shopping, keep your receipts. Check your bill and count your change. Guard your possessions. But do enjoy this upbeat energy!
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Today, it almost feels as if there’s more electricity in the air. You feel excited and ready for something different. You’re full of anticipation. And you’re right — something unusual will likely happen. At the least, you’ll feel younger and freer for some reason.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is a restless day but it can be a positive experience. Even though you have that feeling you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop, don’t let impatience cause you to have a knee-jerk reaction to something or someone that you might later regret.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Today you can expect to meet someone unusual, Bohemian or unorthodox — a real character. Alternatively, someone in a group situation might surprise you, or perhaps a decision in a group setting will strike you as weird.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Something will likely occur today that makes you feel freer and more independent. In particular, you will feel freed from some kind of control or authority. Others might be shocked by something that someone in authority says or does today.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Unexpected opportunities to travel could fall in your lap today. Similarly, surprise opportunities to get further training or education might also materialize. You’ll have to act quickly because your window of opportunity will be brief.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Surprise gifts, goodies and favors from others might come your way today. In fact, this is a real possibility so keep your eyes open. Or you might benefit indirectly through someone else. This benefit will be very short-lived, so act quickly!
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Partners and close friends might surprise you by throwing you a curveball today. Your best defense is to stay alert and keep your gloves on. Someone might demand more independence and freedom or, conversely, you might feel this way.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your day will be interrupted today, possibly because of computer crashes, power outages, staff shortages, canceled meetings or something you least expect. Your only recourse is to stay on your toes and be ready to jump in any direction. (“Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!”)
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This could be an accident-prone day for your kids, so keep your eyes open. But it’s also an exciting day full of spontaneous invitations to social events and exciting flirtations. Try to go with the flow.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your home routine will be interrupted today but, hopefully, pleasantly so. Surprise company might drop by. Or you might purchase something unusual for where you live or for a family member. You feel very young and “with it” today, even daring.
IF MAY 28 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Author Ian Fleming (1908-1964) shares your birthday. You’re a self-starter and you’re definitely original. (You often have genius-like ideas that are surprisingly simple.) Plus you’re very creative. You especially love to begin something new and fresh. You like to be active because the act of being busy rejuvenates you and gives your life the excitement you want. Your year ahead will focus on close friendships and partnerships. Enjoy.
