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 Aquarius.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): For the next month, you’ll be quite intense about everything. Sex will be passionate. In fact, all your dealings with others will be passionate in every sense of the word. You’ll also focus on bills, inheritances, taxes and debt.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): For the next month, the Sun will be directly opposite your sign, which is as far away from you as it gets all year. Since the Sun is your source of energy, you’re going to need more sleep! Just acknowledge this. Suck it up. Go to bed.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Today the Sun shifts signs, which causes a shift in focus in your own life. For the next six-to-eight weeks, you will be busier than usual because you’ll be strongly focused on work and getting things done. You’ll be equally focused on improving your health. (Great!)
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Lucky you! The next six weeks are fun-filled and carefree. Romance, love affairs, saucy flirtations and social invitations will promise pleasure and good times. Sports, the arts and playful activities with children will also be a strong focus.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your attention now swings to home, family and domestic matters during the next six weeks. You might also be more involved with a parent than usual. You will enjoy cocooning at home so that you feel comfy within your own privacy.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Because the pace of your days is accelerating in the next six weeks, do get out and schmooze. Talk to siblings, neighbors and daily contacts. Expect increased reading and writing. You’ll be running around doing errands as well as taking short trips.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Money, money, money. Your focus will be on earnings, cash flow and assessing your assets more than usual in the next several weeks. Stay on top of your bank account. Look for ways to make money on the side or perhaps find a new job.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): For the first time in 11 months, the Sun is back in your sign. This means the month ahead is your turn to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. You will replenish your energy and enjoy increased popularity as others flock to you.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll be hiding in the wings for the next month, pondering your new year (birthday to birthday) ahead. You are a forward-thinking sign and you know that clearly defining goals helps you to achieve them. What do you want for your new year ahead?
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): During the next six weeks, accept all invitations because you will be popular! Everyone wants to see your face. Enjoy clubs and groups. Sign up for a class. Talk to others about your hopes and dreams for the future to get their feedback.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The Sun is slowly crossing the top of your chart for the next six weeks. What this does is act like a spotlight on you, which means others notice you more than usual — especially authority figures. Fortunately, this lighting is flattering!
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Sign up for a course and look for ways to explore further education or training. Travel anywhere you can because in the next six weeks you are hungry to learn something new and equally hungry to travel. You want to broaden your horizons!
IF OCTOBER 22 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Physician/writer/teacher Deepak Chopra (1946) shares your birthday today. You are highly entertaining, magnetic and persuasively charming. People flock to you! Ironically, you easily admire others. You are very emotional and your private life is definitely witness to this. (Many of you have a fascinating, active love life.) You are socially smooth but rebellious. This year an exciting new cycle begins. Open any door!
