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 Leo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Unexpected flirtations will delight you today. In fact, surprise invitations to movies, sports events or social occasions might suddenly come your way. Say yes because the clock is ticking on these offers.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20):Surprise company might drop by because something will certainly change your home routine today. (Unfortunately, minor breakages could occur or small appliances might break down.)
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’re eager to do something different today. New faces, new places and fresh ideas are what you have in mind to make this an interesting day. It’s a great time for spontaneous short trips.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Unexpected chances to make money either by getting a different job, a promotion or making money on the side exist for you today. Similarly, impulse buying could result in electronic/computer purchases or modern art. (However, do keep an eye on your money and possessions.)
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Today is full of pleasant surprises! You might meet someone who is different or unusual. You might suddenly go somewhere that is exciting. You want to be stimulated and have fun today! Avoid boring people, but don’t blow a secure relationship for a mere bonbon.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’re definitely restless today. Get out and do something different. Indulge your need for stimulation and excitement. If you don’t, you’ll have that feeling that the world is passing you by. (Caution against temperamental hissy fits late in the evening, which are likely!)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll love schmoozing with others, especially in group situations today. Someone might surprise you or, in turn, you could meet someone who is a real character. Be open to the suggestions of others that could ultimately help you achieve your goals.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might get a sudden crush on your boss or someone in a position of authority or perhaps someone who is older or richer today. Or you might receive unexpected praise or even a promotion. (Be patient with others this evening to avoid snarky arguments.)
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Good news! Surprise opportunities to travel somewhere might fall in your lap. Likewise, unexpected opportunities related to publishing, the media, higher education, the law and medicine might also materialize. Act quickly because this chance will fade fast.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Gifts, goodies and favors from others can come your way today. For some, these unexpected favors could be a promise of intimacy or new romance. You definitely can benefit from the wealth or resources of others in an unexpected way today.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You might agree to an unconventional arrangement with a lover or partner today. (This is just your style.) You might also meet someone who will become a short-lasting whirlwind romance. You’re looking for something to rattle your cage. “Wanna dance?”
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): An unexpected raise or promotion on the job might occur today. You might be surprised by someone’s praise of you. New high-tech toys or the introduction of new technology is also likely. You might also meet someone new today or hear surprising news.
IF SEPTEMBER 12 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: TV presenter/actress Elisabetta Canalis (1978) shares your birthday today. You love words and language. Most of you are reserved, private and quiet, which is why you often bury yourself in your work. Ethics always matter to you. (You’re philosophical, which is why you give everything a lot of thought.) Above all, you’re a realist. Great news! Your year ahead will be extremely fortunate, perhaps one of the most powerful years of your life.
