ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution! Avoid shopping or making important decisions today until 6:15 p.m. After that the Moon moves from Virgo and Libra.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This year, it’s easy to be optimistic and full of positive thoughts. Make the most of this because everything begins with a thought: First comes the thought, then from the thought springs the deed. The deed soon becomes habit and habit hardens into character.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Continue to look for ways to boost your income because this is possible to do between now and the autumn of 2013. Just the knowledge that something is possible can help it to manifest in your world.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I flinch when I meet a Gemini who doesn’t know this is one of the most fortunate years of their life — certainly, the best year in more than a decade. Good fortune is with you now!
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re entering a three-year period where you’ll wonder what you really want to be when you grow up. It’s a time of testing. Many of you might encounter increased responsibilities with children as well.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a popular year, perhaps the most popular since 2001-02. This means others benefit you, which is why you should form working units with others or partnerships or join organizations. Be friendly! Milk this!
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This year you can put your name up in lights. It will be surprisingly easy for you to impress bosses, parents and VIPs. That means this is the time to go for the permission or endorsement that you want from others.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I’m sure you’ve noticed lately you want to travel. Well, this feeling is here to stay for a while, so make plans to travel this year and next year! Explore further education and taking courses as well as opportunities in publishing and the media. Woot!
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sometimes we have to stand on our own two feet and sometimes it’s easy to get help from others. Lucky you, this year and next year you can definitely benefit from the wealth and resources of others. Yeehaw! Keep your pockets open and keep smiling.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Relations with close friends and partners will improve in a beautiful way this year and next. For those of you who enter into a committed partnership now, it’s very fortunate. Your partner will be older, richer or more worldly. (Every bit helps.)
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It’s important to know that this year and next year are the best time for you to get a better job or improve your existing job that you have had in more a decade. Make this work for you! Go after whatever you want. Half of success is just showing up.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): What a playful, romantic year for Aquarians! (Mom always liked you best.) This year and next year are blessed for love affairs, romantic liaisons and saucy flirtations. It’s also a great time for sports, the arts, vacations, social events and playful times with kids.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The next 18 months or so will be quite lovely because you can improve your home and your family environment in a warm, loving way. Family members will be more generous to each other and all of you will be more joyful. You will probably feel richer at home. This is also a great year for real-estate deals.
IF OCTOBER 13 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Longest-serving prime minister of U.K. in the 20th century, Margaret Thatcher (1925), shares your birthday today. You are bold about going after what you want because you take your career seriously. You’re a keen critic and like to expose the sacred cows in society. (You delight in puncturing naive beliefs.) Many of you develop a particular technique that you use. You’re not casual; you’re intense. Your year ahead is the beginning of a new nine-year cycle. Open any door!
