ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution! Avoid shopping or making important decisions all day today. The Moon is in Cancer.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t try to be too productive today. Just keep your head above water. Fortunately, it’s a wonderful day to be social with others. Enjoy the company of partners and close friends plus members of the general public.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be careful today because although you might have good ideas related to finances, business and commerce (because you’re not afraid to think big plus you feel unusually confident), this is a poor day to sign or agree to anything. Definitely a poor day to spend money!
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’re in a wonderful mood today! This is a great day to schmooze and party with others. Yet, a loosey-goosey element to everything stops you from getting kick-started in an efficient, productive way. Don’t worry. Just make sure you avoid making important commitments or expenditures.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll feel more emotional than usual today because not only is the Moon in your sign, it is hanging very “loose” in the sky today because it is not making a major mathematical aspect to any other planet. This means you also feel at loose ends. No worries.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Relationships with group situations — classes, small meetings — will be unusually friendly and breezy today. You’ll enjoy pressing the flesh and meeting new faces. However, do not volunteer for anything. Do not accept important responsibilities with deadlines.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s easy to feel confident about financial matters and business deals today. Fill your databank, get information and talk to others. The exchange of ideas might creatively build in a wonderful way. However, don’t finalize anything and don’t spend money.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You feel warmly expansive to everyone today. You’re in a good mood and want to share your joy with others. You might also feel unusually generous to others. All this is fine, but read the Moon Alert above and refrain from spending money.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have a strong sense of well-being today because you have a warm feeling in your tummy — psychologically and spiritually. You might work behind the scenes to support someone in need, whether this person is in your family or a stranger far away.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): This is a popular day for your sign. You feel bigger than life and your approach to everything and everyone. You’re very enthusiastic about achieving your goals, especially by working with others. People will cooperate with you today.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): People view you in very positive terms today. You’re energetic, ebullient and fun to be around. Use your charisma to help achieve what you want to do at work. However, don’t make promises to others and postpone important agreements or decisions until tomorrow.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Travel plans look exciting! Similarly, plans to expand your training and education or explore avenues in publishing, the media, medicine and the law turn you on. Just explore possibilities today. Don’t sign on the dotted line. Don’t buy those tickets.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You might feel like this is a good day to settle insurance disputes, or decide how to deal with inheritances, or decisions about taxes and debt, but it’s not a good day for these things. Whatever you initiate will tend not to fulfill its purpose.
IF OCTOBER 8 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Sigourney Weaver (1949) shares your birthday today. At heart, you are a romantic. (And a free spirit!) You have a vivid imagination and yet, you are also practical. You have a strong sense of roots and excellent money savvy. Despite your quixotic interests in life, you are reliable and dependable. In the year ahead, a major change might take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2003.
