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 Gemini.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): In the next few years, you might find you have less support from others. Fear not, this has no bearing on your own earnings. But it does mean you’ll have to stand on your own two feet more (which will only make you more independent).
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Partnerships might be more challenging in the next few years because, in a way, you are taking your power. By doing so, you’re upsetting the status quo. Naturally, relationships that are meant to endure will simply undergo readjustments. Others, however, will bite the dust. (Oops.)
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can expect to be working quite hard in the next few years but you won’t mind because you will accomplish a lot. Nevertheless, at times, you might feel overwhelmed. Don’t worry — you will persevere!
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Many of you will have increased responsibilities with children for one reason or another in the next few years. Personally, many of you are going to be asking yourselves, “What do I really want to be when I grow up?” This is a defining time for Cancers.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): For some time now, you have been toying with the idea of a job change or a residential move. In a few years, you will either make this residential move or you’ll make repairs to where you live so that you feel secure about your home. (“It’s my castle.”)
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’re entering a two- to three-year period of flux and change wherein you might have a residential move or a job change or both. Basically, for the last five years, you’ve been reinventing yourself. Now it’s time to put the finishing touches on the “New You.”
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Pull in your reins a little in the next few years when it comes to spending on luxurious temptations. (You find it easier to buy stemware than a pair of practical scissors.) You’re going to focus more seriously on earnings, money and cash flow.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re stepping into a new sandbox starting around now. (Later Scorpios will sense this in 2013.) This is the beginning of a new 30-year journey that starts off with you completely redefining who you are in the next seven years. (Like wow, man.)
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): All Sagittarians are entering a two- to three-year window where you will say goodbye to many things. That’s because it’s time for you to let go of what is no longer relevant in your life.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the next few years, you will develop a much better appreciation for how to achieve a wise balance when you deal with groups. Yes, you want to give your all, but not to the extent that you lose your integrity and your sense of who you are.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): All Aquarians are entering a time of harvest for the first time in 30 years. This means that for many of you, your cherished dreams will come true. (Yay!) Naturally, a time of harvest is also when you see which crops did not grow. But at least you know.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A very strong period of preparation lies ahead for you in the next few years. Get further education, training or learn what you can through travel so that you are “performance ready” by 2015. Homework and preparation always pay off.
IF OCTOBER 4 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Gothic novelist Anne Rice (1941) shares your birthday today. You know what others want because you have your finger on the pulse of the public. (This is why you know how to appeal to people.) You have charm and grace and you like things to go smoothly around you; yet, you are also attracted to danger and adventure! Family is important to you. This year you will begin an exciting new cycle. Open any door!
