ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the “All Clear” today to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions until 8:15 p.m. The moon is in Libra.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): With the moon opposite your sign today, you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Be prepared to give a little. You can be very competitive without even thinking. But if you’re nice, others will be nice, too.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Health concerns and a desire to get better organized are your top priorities today. On the whole, it’s easy to get along with others, although later in the day someone could rain on your parade. Don’t listen to criticism from elders.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’re in the mood to fun today! Fortunately, most of you will pull this off with sports, the arts, the entertainment world, schmoozing with others or enjoying playful activities with children. By this evening, however, serious responsibilities loom.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is a down-home kinda day. Hang out where you live. Entertain at home if possible because you will enjoy this. It’s also a good day for real-estate deals. Nevertheless, as the day wears on, an older family member could be critical. (Isn’t this fun?)
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll enjoy schmoozing with others, especially siblings, neighbors and relatives. By evening, someone might clip your wings with thoughtless criticism but you don’t have to react, do you? After all, what do they know?
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a good day for business and commerce. Similarly, it’s a good day to shop or put an outlay of money on something. Just make sure you feel good about whatever you do because by evening you might have regrets or second thoughts. Or someone older could be critical. (Ouch.)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You might be more emotional than usual today because the moon is in your sign. However, it’s dancing beautifully with Mercury and fair Venus. It’s not until the end of the day that stern Saturn enters the picture with a few gruff words. (There’s an Eeyore in every crowd.)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re best served by working alone or behind the scenes. In fact, some of you are really working behind the scenes because a secret love affair is a strong possibility. (Naughty you.) You might also enjoy your solitude in beautiful surroundings, although you might feel a tad lonely by evening. (Gone quickly.)
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): For the most part, this is a great day to schmooze. All group activities will be upbeat and enjoyable. It’s a good day to get feedback from others about your ideas. Don’t be turned off if someone older or more experienced is critical late. Phfft!
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Something about your private life might be suddenly rather public today, especially in the eyes of bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. (“We see you!”) Be aware of this because you never forget your public image. Later, if someone is critical, don’t take them seriously.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a perfect day for a little trip somewhere. You want a change of scenery, some adventure and a chance to learn something new. Be a tourist in your own city. Shake it up a little. Don’t let sobering news at the end of the day dampen your spirits.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Romance might be very sweet today, and someone could be very generous to you. Relations with others are very positive and encouraging. It all feels very good. Later in the day, however, someone older might withhold their approval. Don’t worry about this.
IF MAY 31 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor/director Clint Eastwood (1930) shares your birthday today. You are frequently misunderstood because you have a cool exterior that hides your passionate intensity. You exude confidence. You’re a no-nonsense type, a straight shooter. You have a wide range of interests and talents, which you learn to adapt to changing situations. In the year ahead, a change might take place, perhaps something as significant as whatever occurred around 2003.
