ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 3:15 p.m. until 8:50 p.m. today. After that the Moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Wunderbar! You want to party and goof off because it’s a goofy day. However, remember that you will need more sleep because the Sun is as far away from your sign as it gets all year, and it’s your source of energy. (Could you fake it with a pajama party?)
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do think of ways that you can improve your health because this is totally feasible for you now. Naturally, there are two approaches: the first is to stop, cease and desist doing what is harmful and the second is to begin doing something that is good for you.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Oh joy! The heavens are determined that Geminis shall par-tay! Grab every opportunity to enjoy good times with others, explore the arts, see movies and sports events, slip away on a vacation and enjoy romantic little excursions with the apple of your eye.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your focus continues to be on home, family and domestic affairs. Relations with a parent could be significant. Some of you will want to cocoon at home, especially because you’re dealing with nostalgia and memories.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your pace is busy now with rushed days because you have so much on your plate. Short trips, increased reading and writing, errands and talking to everyone have accelerated your daily tempo. But it’s a fun buzz.
◆Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Money, money, money. You’re thinking about how to juggle your finances, boost your earnings, pay your bills and reduce your debt. Ka-ching! But on a more subtle level, these same concerns translate into other values. In other words, what really matters to you?
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are energized and rigorous now because the Sun is still in your sign. Make the most of this time. Favorable circumstances plus people will materialize to help you. Well, at least most of them. (“Dammit Jim! I’m an actor not a doctor.”)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stop trying to be all things to all people because this is not totally appropriate for you right now. Basically, you will accomplish more by working alone or working behind the scenes. Keep a low profile. Great time to do research and fill your databank.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Popular you! Not only are you enjoying schmoozing with others, this is a time when you’re giving a lot of thought to your hopes. So much is almost within your grasp. But first, you have to let go of something.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You make a fabulous impression on others now because you’re in the limelight, as it were. Furthermore, this light is flattering, which is why bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and even the police are impressed with you. You might as well milk this for all it’s worth.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Because you’re keen to travel or expand your experience of the world, do something different. Sign up for a course. Learn a new language. Visit someplace you’ve never been before. Think of ways you can use your everyday world to create an adventure.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’re ambitious (in no small part because you want to reduce your debt). You also want the boundaries very clearly defined regarding shared property, jointly held possessions, insurance matters and inheritances. You want to know who owns what and how much you owe anyone.
IF OCTOBER 19 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Author Tracy Chevalier (1962) shares your birthday today. You’re free-spirited and outspoken. Nevertheless, you are a loyal family member as long as you can still feel independent. You have strong opinions and like to expose the truth, especially about hidden, murky situations. And you can be provocative! Plan on setting aside time to study or learn something valuable in the coming year, because you will be glad you did.
