ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 7:15 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 Aries.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today you will swing through a variety of moods. With the Moon in your sign, you’re emotional and might have a fight with a partner or friend. (Oops.) You might also have a stand-off with an authority figure.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is a good day for business and commerce, but you might well have some disagreements with others, especially at work, or about controversial subjects: politics, religion or possibly the law, medicine or something to do with publishing.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Today you might be at odds with romantic partners, children or team members, perhaps quarrelling about different values or supplies. But within hours, you’re laughing with others and loving everyone in the group.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Aspects of your private life might suddenly be quite public today. Regrettably, this could be a public argument with a family member or a partner. Why telegraph this to the world? (Ah yes, all the world is a stage and most of us missed the rehearsal.)
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Travel plans and something to do with publishing, higher education, medicine or the law will likely please you today. Nevertheless, arguments with siblings, neighbors or a work colleague might destroy your peace of mind. (Sigh.) Today is an emotional roller coaster. Send out for dark chocolate.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Arguments about possessions, money and expenses might annoy you but you will feel enthusiastic making big plans talking to bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. If you can set aside these financial disputes, you’ll feel like a winner today! (The future is like the present only longer.)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Travel plans or discussions about travel plans with partners and close friends will delight you today. However, little squabbles about details will likely arise. Be patient with those at home because anger only makes everyone miserable, including you.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might earn good money today or do something to boost your budget, get equipment support or have help from others. Someone might resent this because they’re jealous. Keep your head up high and remain positive. To respond is to sink to their level.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): This is a playful, fun-loving day! But you’ll have to be patient with romantic partners and kids because therein lies the rub. Perhaps it’s a dispute about money and possessions? Stay with what works and ignore what doesn’t.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You feel happy and cozy at home today even though you might have a disagreement with a parent or older relative. Don’t try to improve others and don’t let anyone do this to you.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’re concerned for the welfare of others because you feel warm and congenial today. This concern promotes communications, especially if you have to sell, market or teach. If something annoys you in the news or in a discussion with others, just let it go. (
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is a good day for business and commerce. In fact, you’re feeling rather flush. Perhaps this is why disputes with others can arise because of differing values. We all have different tastes, that’s all.
IF JULY 9 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Tom Hanks (1956) shares your birthday today. You are naturally curious, which leads to many interesting adventures in your life. Your vivid imagination, combined with your practical, hard-working drive generally brings you success. You will always investigate, learn and then share what you find with others. You’re very open-minded and tolerant. In your coming year, an important choice will arise. Choose wisely.
