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 Taurus.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is an excellent day to get along with co-workers and bosses. In fact, older or more experienced people you’re involved with today will be unusually reasonable and helpful. Possibly (a long shot) you will develop a crush on one of them.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Romance with someone of an age difference might take place for some of you now. All of you will be more inclined to accept the responsibilities that you have in relationships. You won’t resent how much you have to give.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you shop for something for your home or a family member today, you’ll be successful in buying something beautiful that is long-lasting and practical. This is also an excellent day to sign real-estate deals because they will benefit you for a long time.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is an excellent day for negotiations and signing contracts. Whatever you agree to will have a long-term benefit. Furthermore, you’ll do your homework and be careful about defining boundaries, limits, obligations and duties on the part of all parties involved.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Business and commerce are favored today. You’re in a sensible frame of mind but, not only that, you’re also in a reasonable frame of mind. This puts you in an excellent position to negotiate with others.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Today you’ll be pleased to accept and agree to whatever duties and obligations your relationships entail. You will not see them as onerous or restricting. Quite the opposite; you’ll see that it is a joy to serve those you love because you see the relationship is something bigger than just yourself.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Research or behind-the-scenes work will be productive today. You’re happy to work in solitude and will pay attention to details. (You’re not suffering from typoglycemia — a common ailment that makes you too tired to catch your mistakes.)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A friendship with someone older or of an age difference will be rewarding for you today. Others will be happy to take on the responsibilities involved with a group. You’re happy to accept group standards and ideals and work within those parameters.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): This is an ideal day to talk to bosses and authority figures or people who are more experienced than you because they will be receptive to whatever you have to say. In fact, the relationships will be so smooth, a romantic angle might develop.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll find it easy to study any subject today or tackle problems related to the law, publishing, the media, medicine and higher education. Your concentration is focused and steady, plus you’ll enjoy doing the work! (Would that life were always this easy.)
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You couldn’t pick a better day to sit down with others and discuss how to divide something or share an inheritance. Settle disputes about shared property, insurance matters, taxes and debt. All parties involved will be reasonable and cooperative. (Unless they are unreasonably uncooperative!) Ever met one?
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is a good day for working with others in partnerships or group situations. People will enjoy making practical long-range plans together. Whatever you do, you will do with great discipline, care and thoroughness. (I’m impressed.)
IF OCTOBER 2 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Musician/actor Sting (1951) shares your birthday today. You have a charismatic personality because you have charm, wit and intelligence. However, you are disarmingly frank and not afraid to express your opinions. (You get away with controversial comments because of your diplomacy and humor.) Many of you are concerned about politics and the society around you.
