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 Capricorn.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be careful today because it’s likely that private details of your personal life will be public, especially in the eyes of parents, bosses, VIPs and the police. Knowing this ahead of time, you might do some damage control.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It will please you to do something different today. You want to shake up your routine. Therefore, go someplace you’ve never been before. Talk to people from other cultures or different countries. Essentially, you want to broaden your horizons and your experience of life.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a good day to tackle loose ends with wills, inheritances, bills and taxes. (What fun!) Well, this stuff isn’t going to go away all by itself, is it? Set aside time to do some of this work so that afterward, you can feel smugly pleased with yourself.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22) : Because the Moon is opposite your sign today, you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. It’s no big deal. It just requires a little compromise and tolerance on your part. (You can do this.)
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll be delighted if you can do something to feel more organized and more in control of your life. Set aside a half an hour or longer and putter somewhere making things more tidy and organized.
◆VIRGO: (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You don’t feel like working today. You want to have fun and relax. You will definitely put pleasure before duty. Well, we all have these days (but not enough of them!). Do whatever pleases you most. Have a second cup of coffee and do a crossword puzzle. (I’m a Sudoku fanatic.)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Today you’ll enjoy puttering around where you live doing whatever you can to feel good about your surroundings. Your surroundings affect you more than other signs. Hot tip: If you put out fresh flowers you don’t have to dust.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your conversations with others today will be a bit more emotional than usual. You want things to be discussed at a “gut” level. You don’t want anything swept under the rug. In other words, you want the real deal and you want people to be honest with you.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You might find that you identify more than usual with your possessions today. Or you might feel strongly attached to something you own. Do be careful about spending money today because you could be buying something for all the wrong reasons.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You feel a strong need to relate to others today because the Moon is in your sign. There’s a subtle difference in meaning between being emotionally demanding and emotionally giving, which you will discover for yourself today. (They’re both emotional.)
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Solitude in beautiful surroundings will please you today because you want time to reflect, contemplate and ponder your current situation. You are so forward-thinking you sometimes need to take a moment to settle down to the present.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Conversations with a female might be significant today. Discussions with others, especially about your hopes and dreams for the future, could be very helpful. Someone might steer you in a new direction or give you a better idea of how to achieve your goals.
