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 Sagittarius.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You feel well-disposed to others today, especially people who are in distant lands or far away. If you can voluntarily help others, you will. (But if someone twists your elbow, you won’t.) Many of you are excited by future travel plans.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You feel generous to others today, especially with respect to shared property, dividing an inheritance or sharing whatever you own. Nevertheless, if you feel coerced or demands are made upon you, you’ll dig in your heels and be less forthcoming.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a marvellous day to schmooze with others, including members of the general public. You feel a bit bigger than life and ready to entertain. Very possibly, you will meet someone who is this same way. Oh joy! It’s a happy day!
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You feel big-hearted to others at work today and, hopefully, they feel the same way toward you. That’s why you’re ready to cooperate with others and work together to get things done. Nevertheless, you don’t want anyone bossing you around today. Grrr.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a fun-loving, pleasant day! Enjoy romantic flirtations. Slip away on a vacation if you can. Sports events, the theater, the arts and playful activities with children will delight you. But you do want the freedom today to do your own thing.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a feel-good day at home for you. You might enjoy entertaining at home or having people to your home to learn or discuss something. You will just as easily enjoy your own solitude at home as well. You want to feel that your home is a cozy refuge.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It’s easy to get along with others today because you’re in a good mood and so are they. This could be a good day to sign documents and agree to certain arrangements. Just be careful you don’t bite off more than you can chew. Be cautious if something looks too good to be true. (It probably is.)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is a good day for business and commerce. “There’s money in them thar hills!” You feel confident financially today. However, this confidence could cause you to spend too much money or go overboard in some way. Do be reasonable.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Today you feel unusually benevolent to others. You’re prepared to be generous or help wherever you can. The trick is you want to initiate the offer. If anyone compels you to do something, you’ll balk! (You also want to assert your freedom in relationships.)
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have a very strong do-gooder impulse today. You won’t hesitate to go out of your way to help others, especially those who are in need or in unfortunate circumstances. You want to do the right thing — but you don’t want somebody else telling you to do it.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A popular day! Enjoy schmoozing with others, especially in group situations. Conversations with females in particular will be upbeat and illuminating. Someone’s encouragement might allow you to dream bigger about your future possibilities. Wunderbar!
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Relations with authority figures will be smooth and warm today. You feel confident in your dealings with others. However, you want to feel like you are on an even footing with them. If they throw their weight around, your enthusiasm for any project will quickly cool.
IF SEPTEMBER 21 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Writer Stephen King (1947) shares your birthday today. You’re concerned with social issues and like to keep abreast of the times. You’re always fascinated by what others do. You’re modern in other ways as well, including your dress and your lifestyle. You value beauty and aesthetics and are intrigued by secrets and mystery. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
