ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear today to shop and make important decisions until 6:30 p.m. today. The Moon is in Virgo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): TGIF! This is a great day to celebrate the end of the week. Whatever you do be aware that there will be an element of excess or overdoing things present this evening. Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take a long lunch. Enjoy the company of others. Make plans for dinner or order pizza for the family. There is an element of largesse in the air, which makes everyone want to have fun!
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Home, family and your domestic scene will be your primary focus today. Why not invite the gang over for pizza and beer? You’re in the mood to have fun and you want to share your joy with others, especially at home or with family.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t stay at home today. Au contraire. You want to be out and about in the thick of things picking up gossip from everyone. As the day wears on, you feel increasingly optimistic and perhaps even extroverted. When you’re in a good mood it’s always fun to hang out with others, isn’t it?
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Wasn’t it only yesterday you were wanting to reduce your debt and increase your earnings? You certainly want to boost your earnings today but you might also want to spend big on some irresistible goodies.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’re tempted by extravagance and luxury today. You might even be foolishly generous to others, which is why this is not a great day for important financial decisions. Your impulse to overdo things could lead to seconds on dessert. (A minute on the lips is a lifetime on the hips.)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is one of those lazy days where it’s hard to get jumpstarted, which is why you might want to hide somewhere and just veg out. Your day doesn’t have to be like this but it might be.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Enjoy the company of others today, especially in group situations. However, think twice before you give something away. (You could be too generous and later regret it.) And certainly, think twice before you volunteer for anything! Temper your impulses.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You might be so flamboyant today that bosses, parents, VIPs and the police suddenly notice you — plus they notice personal details about your private life. You might not mind, but then again, you might. Therefore, be aware that this is a strong possibility.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be careful booking travel plans because you might impulsively do something you will later regret. However, this is a lovely day to enjoy beautiful places — art galleries, museums, parks and architectural buildings. Basically, you want to be inspired by the art of others.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is not an ideal day to decide how to divide an inheritance or share something that is jointly owned because you might go overboard. You might give away the farm, or you might even demand too much. Either way, it’s hard to find the correct balance today. (Forewarned is forearmed.)
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Enjoy fun discussions with partners and close friends because you feel exceptionally warmhearted and friendly today. Keep things light. Don’t make promises you can’t keep later. If you party, make sure you know how to get safely home.
IF OCTOBER 12 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Australian actor Hugh Jackman (1968) shares your birthday today. You have excellent money savvy and are also very generous. (You are never petty.) You don’t mind the limelight because many of you are natural performers. You have comical wit and flamboyance. Because of your larger-than-life qualities, others often depend on you. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new.
