ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 12 a.m. until 5:45 a.m. today. After that the Moon moves from Leo into Virgo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You probably have very strong ideas today about how you want to improve your health. Similarly, at work, you have equally strong ideas about how you want to introduce improvements to the way things are done. You see some clever shortcuts. (You’re good at this.)
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Romance is very passionate today! However, you feel passionate about everything right now. If you have ideas about entertaining others or having a good time or making plans related to the arts, sports or social diversions, you will want your way.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Family discussions are intense today! Everyone seems to have a strong opinion about what should be done, especially if it relates to recycling, laundry, plumbing issues or anything to do with bathrooms and garbage areas.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be careful that you’re not obsessed about something to the point of losing perspective on things. Nevertheless, this quality does make you very convincing in all your arguments with others today. People will listen.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): When it comes to financial matters today, you are obsessed! You have very firm ideas about how you are earning your money, or perhaps your obsession applies to how you want to spend it. If shopping, you will insist on getting exactly what you want. No compromises.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’re in a serious frame of mind today, which means you mean business. When talking to others, you’ll say what you mean and you’ll mean what you say. Naturally, you expect others to go along with your ideas, and they probably will. Unless you’re talking to another Virgo!
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your research skills are fabulous today. If there’s something you want to discover or find, you’ll be like a dog with a bone. You won’t let up until you find what you’re looking for. Secrets might come out, but hopefully you’ll discover solutions as well.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Discussions with others, especially females, will be pretty intense today. The word casual is lost from your vocabulary. Work with others to help to attain your goals. If your goals benefit others as well as yourself, you’ll be successful.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’re on your high horse about something today. No question. Others know that you have opinions about something and that they have to listen to you. You are unusually persuasive talking to bosses, parents, teachers and authority figures.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Controversial subjects like religion and politics could lead to intense arguments with others today. Everybody has their back up about something. Issues are hot and you won’t back down. On the other hand, hey, you gotta know when to hold and when to fold.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will vociferously defend your rights in discussions about shared property, inheritances, insurance matters and anything that is disputed, even if it’s a question of values. You feel strongly about things today and want others to see your point of view.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It’s good to keep your objective in mind today when talking to partners and close friends. Sure you’re going to be obsessed about getting your way — but so will they! Is it worth making a big fuss about this? It’s hard to keep your shirt on when you want to get something off your chest, isn’t it? Chill out.
IF SEPTEMBER 14 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Callum Keith Rennie (1960) shares your birthday today. You value family and you are concerned not only with your own family but even other families. You will work to establish efficient systems to benefit others if possible. You love to learn and have many opinions about many things! You also like your creature comforts and daily habits. This year you begin a whole new cycle. Open any door!
