ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear today to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions until 4:30 p.m. The Moon is in Leo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You might feel idealistic about sharing something with someone at this time. This could be a major gesture on your part, perhaps regarding inheritances or shared property.
◆Taurus (April 20-May 20: Despite whatever difficulties you might feel have arisen in partnerships and close friendships, at this moment, you feel sympathetic to others. You’re a practical person and you can appreciate the practical challenges that others might have to undergo.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20: You’re willing to give someone the benefit of the doubt at work today simply because you see how much they have on their plate. In your own way, you’re aware that each of us is doing the best we can with what we have. This kind of tolerance can only serve you well, as well as earn the respect of others.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You are aware of the ongoing responsibilities of children and, possibly, the responsibilities of issues related to sports, the entertainment world and the hospitality industry. (Could be any of these.) Fortunately, you’re willing to negotiate and see the other side.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You want to make practical changes, improvements and repairs to both your home and possibly even your family relationships at this time. However, you want them to be smooth and even elegant if possible. And why not? Go for the best.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your ability to plan ahead is critical now because many of you will be considering a residential move or a change of job in the next few years. Right now you’re trying very hard to come up with what is best for you. (Natch!)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It’s possible to come up with a new income stream or a new way of earning money or even a new job. If this is the case, the new money that comes to you will be from a classier source, deluxe or luxurious.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your ability to see practical solutions that are innovative and elegantly smooth is excellent right now. Discussions with others can yield reforms and improvements to your surroundings.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Research into unusual subjects and esoteric knowledge might yield surprising results for you. This is a great time to study anthropology or archaeology or dig into the past for deeper knowledge about something. You’re really intent on getting results.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): As you work with others today, you might seek practical solutions that ultimately benefit those who need your help. This is a good day to announce your goals, hopes and dreams for the future to others to see what they think.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You might see a way to promote your own career and, at the same time, help others or society in some way. If you can do this, it will please you enormously because all Aquarians want to make the world a better place. You see the planet as a global village.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Trust your plans and efforts to travel somewhere exotic in the near future because it could very likely happen. All kinds of possibilities are opening up for you now that improve your chances to get further education, and broaden your experience of life.
IF OCTOBER 10 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Author James Clavell (1924-1994) shares your birthday today. You’re a great problem solver because you’re quick to see the whole picture and what’s wrong with it. You’re an excellent money manager, which is good because you like your creature comforts. Many of you have a beautiful home that runs smoothly. (You don’t like waste.) Your year ahead promises a wonderful opportunity to learn something valuable that will make a difference in your future.
