ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 7 a.m., we have the all clear to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Virgo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): No matter what you do today, it will please you enormously if you set aside 30 minutes to get better organized. Tidy up magazines and newspapers or do something to de-clutter where you live. You might organize your hobbies.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This playful, fun-loving day promotes romance, flirtations and gentle socializing. Enjoy sports, the arts, movies, parties, picnics and playful occasions with children. The bottom line today is: You want to have fun and enjoy yourself!
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a good day to putter around home and take it easy. You deserve a relaxing day. You might also want to clean or care for something that you own because possessions and earnings are a strong focus this month. Go gently.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re full of curiosity today. This is why you’ll enjoy casual conversations with neighbors, siblings and relatives. You’ll love catching up on the buzz because you like talking over the fence or chatting at a bar. Yada yada yada.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Ever since you went on your big spending spree, you’ve been wincing at your credit card balances. (Ouch.) Fortunately, you are efficient and motivated when it comes to reducing your debt — if this is what you want to do. The $64,000 question is, IS this what you want to do?
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Today the Moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional than usual. However, this can also make you luckier than all the other signs. It’s a tiny influence but it’s there. (Remember: The lottery is a tax for people who can’t do math.)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Because you’re so high viz. now, especially in the eyes of authority figures, today you might want to hide. You want to be free of scrutiny and free to do your own thing, and why not? Enjoy some moments of privacy if you can swing this.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A discussion with a female acquaintance could be meaningful today. Perhaps this person will help you define your dreams and wishes in your own mind, or possibly they’ll help you attain them? Be open to the input of others.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You might find it curious that aspects of your private life seem to be rather public today. (“What’s with this?”) Just be aware that you are under the scrutiny of others so be mindful of how you look and what you do and say.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Try to do something different today to give yourself a little adventure. It doesn’t have to be a big deal. You just have to nudge yourself out of your crib. It’s so easy to get stuck in habitual patterns and trap lines, isn’t it? Do something to shake things up a little.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It will please you if you set aside a little time to focus on bills, debt, taxes, inheritances, insurance matters or red-tape details you’ve been avoiding. Perhaps a discussion with someone about these issues will clarify things? (They won’t go away by themselves.)
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be prepared to go more than halfway when dealing with others today because the Moon is directly opposite your sign. This is no big deal. In fact, in two weeks, when the Moon is in your sign, people will have to go more than halfway when dealing with you.
IF JUNE 24 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Soccer player Lionel Messi (1987) shares your birthday today. You become intensely involved with whatever you do. Many of you develop a particular technique or skill that you use. You like to work in your own private world. However, you also like to explore spiritual realms because you are aware of the consequences of your actions. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big.
