ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Not until 11:30 a.m. today do we have the “all clear” to shop and make important decisions. After that the Moon moves from Aries into Taurus.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): That feeling of tension that’s been subterranean to everything since the beginning of the week has disappeared. (Whew!) Could this be why you want to treat yourself to something extravagantly luxurious?
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Enjoy good times with others today. The Moon is in your sign dancing with Neptune, which makes you sensitive to the moods of others. You can practically read their minds. Naturally, you’ll know what others want or expect and you have the choice of complying — or not.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your Spidey sense is heightened today. You’re in the zone. In fact, your ability to sense what others are undergoing will make you sympathetic to the needs and suffering of others. This is why you will put their wants before your own.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll enjoy talking to others, especially in group situations. If everyone starts to discuss their fantasies you’ll be in there like a dirty shirt. However, you might meet someone who seems like a teacher or guru figure, which you find inspirational.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Aspects of your private life might be revealed to others in a public way today. In particular, others might learn how mystical you are or how interested you are in alternative, offbeat subjects. Hey, there’s more to you than just a pretty face.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Mystical, unusual subjects will intrigue you today because you feel sort of “otherworldly.” In addition, your appreciation of beauty is heightened, which is why you should give yourself a chance to see beautiful places, parks, galleries and gorgeous architectural buildings.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You feel unusually generous to others today, especially those who have less than you or those who are suffering in some way. Because your sense of empathy will help you to understand what they’re going through, you will seek ways to help them if you can. (Noble.)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Relations with partners and close friends are mystical and exotic today. Discussions of the occult or ghosts or hidden matters will fascinate you. You also feel very sympathetic to loved ones. (Gosh.)
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It might be hard to concentrate on detail-oriented work or doing a routine job today because your mind will keep escaping into daydreams and fantasies. However, you will be very sympathetic listening to co-workers or customers who need to share their concerns.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your romantic sense of everything is heightened today. If anyone flirts with you, it will send you over the top. In fact, you might even imagine that people are flirting with you.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Family discussions will be mutually sympathetic today. You’ll find someone who is willing to listen to you and, vice versa, you are willing to listen to them. This is also a lovely day to relax at home, or meditate, or do yoga, or just sit in the hot tub and zone out.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’re highly imaginative today. Furthermore, you’re highly sympathetic with others because your psychic senses are wide open. Your ability to sense what others are thinking and feeling is why you can so easily help them.
IF JUNE 14 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Kevin McHale (1988) shares your birthday today. You are tough, gutsy and resilient. You are purposeful and always ready to fight the good fight.

In the year ahead you will study or learn something, which, to you, is valuable.
