ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 5:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. today. After that the Moon moves from Virgo into Libra.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): In next two months, you will be more inclined to express yourself very clearly to others because you’ll be in a creative, playful frame of mind. In fact, not only will you want to play with ideas, you’ll be feeling quite prankish!
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This summer, you’ll take more time to examine your personal and domestic life. Discussions with family members will be important. You need to express your inner thoughts and, in a practical sense, you’ll want to tackle repairs at home. You’re in Fix-It mode!
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Because all things wonderful are happening for Gemini this year, who is surprised you’ll have a busy, fun-loving summer? The tempo of events of your daily life will accelerate with short trips. Discussions with everyone plus a desire to gather information will delight you. Yes!
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): For whatever reason, this summer you’ll focus on your values: what you own, what you owe and what you believe in. You’ll be more concerned with business affairs and cash flow. You might also be concerned with taking care of what you already own.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Mercury is entering your sign now and, instead of lingering for three weeks, it’s going to stay until September! Big picture: strong desire to travel, talk to others and express your views to everyone. Yadda, yadda, yadda.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This summer, you have a desire to seek out solitude and do some personal self-reflection. You’ll welcome the chance to study or do research. You might also become more concerned with spiritual or religious matters.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This summer, you will give much thought to your life goals. That’s why you’ll think about your ideals, how well they have served you in the past and how well they will serve you in the future. “What’s it all about, Alfie?”
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is a great summer for those who want to take summer school courses or refresh thier studies in any way. You’re keen to promote your career and your professional life, especially through learning. You might also meet a mentor or a helpful teacher or boss.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will love this summer because it’s a great time to travel, study and learn something new to expand your world. You’ll love conversations with people from other countries and different backgrounds.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): For some reason, this summer you’ll be focused on practical details concerning shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and jointly-held items. (Yawn.) However, it will be a favourable time to wrap up loose ends and negotiate whatever is disputed.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Beginning now and until September, the planet Mercury will be directly opposite your sign. (Oy!) It certainly makes it an excellent time to clarify and explain things to partners and close friends. It’s also a good time to discuss difficulties in relationships and sort things out. (Ya know?)
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’re going to be busy this summer doing all kinds of mental work. You’ll be very attentive to details and you’ll want everything to be as perfect as possible. All I can say is, “Are there two n’s in anal?”
IF JUNE 26 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Chris O’Donnell (1970) shares your birthday today. You approach life in a physical, earthy way. This is one reason others feel they can depend on you — you appear strong. Not only that, you’re protective toward loved ones and always courageous. You enjoy life and can be successful earning money. (You view money as energy, which can get things done.) Your year ahead is the beginning of a fresh new cycle. Open any door!
