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 Sagittarius.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Do whatever you can to break up your routine today. Lucky Aries people will dodge going to work. Ideally, you want to travel somewhere. At least, change something! Vary your routine. Change your route to or from work. Eat someplace different.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be prudent with decisions about inheritances, shared property or anything you own jointly with others because you could go overboard. You feel a bit cocky, confident and generous. This is all very good, but you have to protect your own best interests as well.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a friendly, easygoing day talking to partners and close friends and members of the general public. People are enthusiastic! (And so are you.) Nevertheless, you’ll have to compromise with someone because the Moon is opposite your sign today. No biggie.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have a lot of energy to work today and yet, you also want to goof off. You can earn some Brownie points with co-workers because you’re willing to be helpful and give others a hand.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a playful, lighthearted, creative day for you. Enjoy sports events, movies, the arts, the entertainment world and fun activities with children. This is a great day to date and explore romantic opportunities because everyone is in a good mood.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You feel like tackling home improvements or shoving furniture around today to make things look better. You’ve got big ideas about changes you want to see where you live. You might also enjoy entertaining at home today because you’re feeling generous!
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A talkative day indeed! You have a strong need to enlighten others and share your thoughts, which is why this is a good day to sell, market, teach, act or even write for a living. Those who drive for a living will also feel upbeat and happy. Guard against excess.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re focused on your cash-flow scene right now and today you feel encouraged. This could be why you’re ready to spend big. I advise you to keep your receipts in case you regret going overboard. You’re full of big money-making ideas!
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You feel upbeat, turned on and excited about life! Both the Moon and Mars are in your sign dancing with your ruler Jupiter. Today was made for you. Not only are you mentally focused and energetic, you’re also emotionally enthusiastic. Fabulous combo!
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re focused on something behind the scenes or perhaps just working alone today. (Some of you are having secret love affair.) The irony is, with the Sun at the top of your chart right now, people notice you more than usual! You can run but you can’t hide.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Group activities, especially with females, will be invigorating today. You might want to confide something to a female acquaintance or vice versa. There could be an element of competition involved. Just don’t promise more than you can deliver despite how confident you feel.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’re letting it all hang out today and you don’t care. Your candor with bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs (possibly even the police) will likely win you some points. Whatever you do today might improve your home or your family relationships.
IF OCTOBER 18 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau (1919-2000) shares your birthday today. You are often involved in the drama in your own life or the lives of those around you. Many of you are leaders and many of you find fame and fortune. Above all, you like to have fun with others. In turn, people feel inspired by you. You are very direct and forthright. Your year ahead is beautifully social and beneficial for all relationships.
