ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear today to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions but only until 2:30 p.m. After that — party! The moon is in Taurus.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You might feel like shopping today because there’s a strong focus on money matters for your sign. If this is the case, please check with the Moon Alert above. (Save yourself a headache and potential loss.)
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): TGIF! This is a lovely day! The Moon in Taurus brings you extra good luck. Yeah, yeah, it also makes you more emotional, so behave. (We never really grow up; we only learn how to act in public.) This is a great day to party.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a lovely day to schmooze with others because everyone feels friendly. Expect shortages and minor delays but hey, everyone is ready to party, especially this evening. Frankly, you might feel like withdrawing from the “scene” and that’s OK, too.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is a highly social day for your sign. You’ll enjoy interaction with others, especially in groups. There’s a playful element, especially later in the day and in the evening. Feel free to discuss your future goals with others but make no decisions or commitments.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’re high viz today so be aware of this when you’re out there. Certain details of your private life will be on display. (Avoid a brittle, stage-whispered fight in an elevator that everyone else can overhear.) Ah life! It beats the alternative.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a fun Friday because you want to push the sides of the envelope. You want more out of life! You’ll love meeting interesting, fascinating people from different backgrounds. Maybe you can compare tattoos?
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Check with the Moon Alert above before making important decisions about inheritances, wills, banking, shared property and insurance matters. It’s OK to study or discuss this stuff, but don’t sign on the dotted line. (Sex can be fun this evening!)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Give free rein to partners and close friends because they’re calling the shots today. You will happily go along because you’re eager for adventure and a chance to learn something new now. This is a great day to party and schmooze. Enjoy!
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Before you let your hair down and have fun this evening, try to get a few things done. You have a strong urge to pull your act together. You have a major To Do list. Competition with a friend or someone in a group could be motivating you.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It’s Friday the 13th and it’s a great day to party for Capricorns! You don’t worry about any bad luck hexes or superstitions. Enjoy sports, the theater, movies, social gatherings and playful times with children. Partnerships are big in your life right now.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll enjoy time spent at home alone today even though others are out painting the town red. You can’t be all things to all people all the time. Even you need to catch your breath now and then and today might be one of those days.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is a wonderful day to schmooze for Pisces! Make plans to see others this evening. It can be a gentle, casual, neighborly thing or something major. Check with the Moon Alert above re: spending money. Of course, you can spend on food and entertainment.
IF JULY 13 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Harrison Ford (1942) shares your birthday today. No matter how unassuming you might appear, you are actually quite heroic. You’re resourceful and you take advantage of opportunities that come your way. You’re willing to work your way up the ladder because you’re not a quitter. You’re also faithful to your friends. In the year ahead, set aside some time to specifically learn or study something important. (Your rewards will soon follow.)
