ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: after 7:45 a.m. today, we have the all clear to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Capricorn.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Despite disruptions to school plans or anything to do with travel, publishing, the media, medicine and the law — you’re so sweet and charming today! In fact, you’re so charming, you can make money with your words writing, teaching, acting. Bravo!
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is an excellent day for business and commerce. Trust your money-making ideas even though you may experience disputes about shared property, debt, taxes, inheritances and stuff like that.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a lovely day because three planets are enjoying a cozy tete-a-tete in your sign. This means you are easily charming and gracious with others. You can talk anyone into anything, even though there could be minor disputes and disruptions with others. No biggie.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You feel quietly pleased and content with yourself today. Whatever the cause, it feels good to feel good, doesn’t it? Difficulties with authority figures and partners will not ruffle your feathers.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Fabulous day to schmooze! All your dealings with others will be warm and friendly, and this certainly includes group settings. Expect a few hiccups at work, especially with high-tech stuff or canceled meetings and staff shortages.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is the perfect day to make your pitch to the boss or any authority figure. Ask for what you want because people in authority are favorably inclined to you today. (In fact, romance with a boss could begin.) Meanwhile, social plans might need rescheduling and parents should be vigilant about their kids.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Travel for pleasure will delight you today. Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened, enjoy beautiful places, architectural buildings, parks, museums and art galleries. Heady intellectual discussions will also be fun.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Gifts, goodies and favors from others can come your way today, so keep your pockets open, virtually and literally. This is also a very sexually hot day for your sign. Woo-woo! Nevertheless, delays in travel and confused communications are possible.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): This is a fabulous day to enjoy the company of others. Get out and schmooze because everyone loves you today and vice versa. Keep an eye on your money and your possessions because you might break or lose something. It’s minor.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Today it’s easy to follow the orders of Col. Saito to “Be happy in your work.” (Remember The Bridge Over the River Kwai?) The reason it’s easy is you ARE happy at work! You feel upbeat, healthy and vigorous. Of course, nothing’s perfect.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a playful, fun-loving day. Existing romance will blossom and new flirtations will delight. Enjoy social occasions, sports, playful activities with children and fun times with others. Caution, you might be impatient. (Impatience is just a wet blanket.)
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A lovely day to entertain at home! Invite the gang over for an enjoyable get-together because warm feelings between family members definitely exist today. What promotes these good feelings is that it is easy to express your affection for others today. (Gosh.) This is also a good day for real estate deals.
IF JUNE 5 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Mark Wahlberg (1971) shares your birthday today. You are so modern and original in your take on things, frequently others do not understand you. You have an excellent sense of humor and a quick mind. You’re an organized, systematic thinker. People are attracted to the enthusiasm you have for your ideas and projects. In the year ahead, you begin an entirely new nine-year cycle. Open any door!
