ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 11:30 a.m. until 10:50 p.m. After that the Moon moves from Cancer into Leo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): In the next six weeks, your focus turns to your home, family and domestic matters more than usual. However, in addition to schmoozing with family, you will also want a little more time by yourself, if you can swing it.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A busy month ahead! Get ready because the pace of your days will accelerate because of short trips, errands, time with siblings plus increased reading and writing. Almost overnight, your schedule is full! You won’t mind, however, because you’re eager to communicate.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Things are great with Venus and Jupiter in your sign but, as the Sun moves into Cancer, you’ll find your focus on money, cash flow and earnings will increase in the next six weeks. You’re thinking a lot about what you want in life lately, aren’t you?
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): The Sun has returned to your sign for the first time this year, which is why you feel ready to rock ‘n’ roll! Great. The Sun in your sign is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of year.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is the best time all year to think about what you want your new year (birthday to birthday) to be about. It arrives soon so why not give your year ahead some thought? Go beyond Management by Crisis and responding to life as it happens. Take charge!
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A popular six weeks ahead! Accept invitations and make plans to see friends. Some of you will take classes or join groups. All of you will enjoy sharing your hopes and dreams for the future with others. (Good idea because their feedback will help you.)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): For the next six weeks, the Sun will slowly move across the top of your chart acting like a spotlight on you, which is why people will notice you more. In fact, this lighting is so flattering, you’ll be asked to take on increased responsibilities. (Say yes. No sweat.)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Travel anywhere if you can in the next month because you need to get outta Dodge. You want to get more out of life. That’s why travel, further education and talking to people from other backgrounds will fascinate you.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Set aside some time in the next month to sort out little red-tape details concerning debt, taxes, insurance matters and such. Try to clean up as much as you can, or at least get the picture of what’s happening. Information is powah!
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re going to need more sleep in the next month because the Sun is directly opposite your sign now and the Sun is your source of energy. (Obviously, an opposition means the Sun is as far away from you as it can get all year.)
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Although you’re still in party mode, you’re feeling an increasing desire to get better organized so you feel you’re on top of your scene. This is wonderful! Get as much done as possible in the next six weeks. ìBe happy in your work!”
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It’s time to party and play. (Mom always liked you best.) Get out your dancing shoes because the next six weeks are all about vacations, romance, love affairs, social gatherings, sports events, expressing your creative talents and enjoying playful activities with children. (No work boots allowed.)
IF JUNE 21 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Chris Pratt (1979) shares your birthday today. You are passionate, sensual and amazingly charismatic. (Others will follow you almost blindly.) You embrace life and are involved in everything, especially family business. You have financial savvy and value a good education. You have a strong drive to succeed. A major change might take place this year, perhaps something as significant as what occurred around 2003.
