ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear today to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The moon is in Aries.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today the Moon is still in your sign making you more emotional than usual. However, it also attracts good luck! Enjoy socializing, flirting, attending sports events and finding ways to express your creative talents.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Home, family and domestic matters continue to be a top priority. But today, you want to hide. Therefore, work alone or behind the scenes if you can. You need a little R&R to emotionally, mentally and psychologically pull your act together.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Discussions with others in group situations might impact you today. Share your hopes and dreams with others because their feedback could be helpful. In fact, input from others might help you to modify your goals in a way that makes you happier. Yay me!
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Once again aspects of your private life are on public view! (What’s with this?) Take this in your stride because outwardly, you do not appear to be ruffled. (Inwardly is another matter entirely!) Discussions with a boss or someone in power might favorably influence your earnings.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’re yearning to get away from all this. You want adventure, thrills and something different. You want to travel somewhere if you can and at least have a change of scenery. Hey, you can be a tourist in your own city.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll love yourself later if you take some time today to get rid of nagging, red-tape details concerning bills, taxes, debt, shared property or inheritances. Just do it. Focus on this for 30 minutes and you’ll be surprised at what you get done.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Be cooperative. Because the
moon is opposite your sign,
you have to be more tolerant than usual, which is not hard for you because you’re quite tolerant anyhow. It’s a good day to schmooze if you go along with the flow.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): What can you do to introduce improvements and reforms where you work? Similarly, what can you do to improve your health? This is a good day to ponder these questions because the result will only be something superior, right?
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A playful day! Accept invitations to party. Enjoy sports and playful activities with children. This is also a flirtatious time, so do contact your main squeeze. Do something special to please this person. It’s the gesture that counts. (“Aww, for me?”)
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Discussions with a parent could be significant today. They will likely show support for whatever you suggest. If this is the case, show some gratitude. People like to be acknowledged if they go out of their way for you. (Just like you do.)
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): When talking to others today, you will rely on your gut reaction. This is because your emotions are strongly influencing your thoughts. That’s OK. You can’t constantly maintain superficial levels of discussions about the weather can you? (Yawn.)
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It’s easy to identify with what you own today. This is why you might feel attached to something or very keen about fixing it up, cleaning it or repairing it. Just make sure that you own your possessions and they don’t own you. Hmmm?
IF JULY 10 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Sofia Vergara (1972) shares your birthday today. Generally, many of you have a quiet personality. Most perceive you as conservative, modest and reflective. You are intelligent and do not hesitate to voice your opinions but you are always considerate of the feelings of others. In fact, you’re very sensitive to your surroundings, especially visually. In the year ahead, you will construct or build something important to you.
