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): This is a good day to make long-range vacation plans. It’s also a great day to sit down with others to discuss the care and education of children. Similarly, practical discussions related to sports will be productive. (Fun things require planning.)
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Sit down with family members, especially someone older or wiser, to discuss the future. These could pertain to repairs for where you live or maintaining your family or taking care of an older relative or parent. You want to do things right.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Choose work that requires attention to detail because you can do this today. Your powers of concentration are excellent. You’ll be careful and thorough no matter what you do. (Someone older might have good ideas.)
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re thrifty and careful about your money today. (This is how Cancers feel most of the time because you’re not a spendthrift and you love a good bargain.) If shopping, you’ll buy long-lasting things that are practical. Good day to budget.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Today the Moon is in your sign, which brings you extra good luck. However, because the Moon is dancing with Saturn, you feel sensible and somewhat subdued. You might not have that last drink or second dessert. (Even flamboyant Leos gotta do what they gotta do.)
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A productive day! Especially for research. You have excellent focus and won’t overlook details. You’ll go right for the jugular and will persevere until you find what you’re looking for. (Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen to the advice of older, more experienced friends (especially female), in group situations today. Pay attention to what is said because it will help you, especially in practical ways. (“You’re giving me all this?”)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might dispense practical advice to others from on high today. Quite likely, you’ll use examples from your personal life to illustrate your recommendations. “When I was a kid, we were so poor we lived in a hole in the middle of the road.”
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It looks like you’re going places! Today is an excellent day to make practical, detailed plans for travels. Someone older might have good advice for you. This is also a great day to study and apply yourself to learning new techniques.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can accomplish a lot today by cleaning up loose ends with inheritances, estates, taxes, debt and anything to do with shared property. You have the willingness to pay attention to detail plus the endurance to follow through on whatever you’re doing.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Discussions with partners and close friends will focus on practical matters today. You feel careful and cautious about something, but you also want things to be clearly defined so that you know what to expect and vice versa.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This can be a productive day at work for you. (Definitely.) You’re in the right frame of mind and you have the energy to do the job. Listen to the advice of those who are older or more experienced. (Or are you the wise sage?) Do routine work or look for ways to cut costs.
IF SEPTEMBER 13 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor/filmmaker Tyler Perry (1969) shares your birthday today. You are devoted. You have focus, concentration and stamina. Your approach to life is no-nonsense and practical. Your persevering attitude often demands a lot from others. Once you have your mind made up, you stick with it! Your diligence is the key to your success. This year something you’ve been involved with for nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new.
