ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 6 a.m. today, we have the all clear to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Pisces.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is an excellent day for research. You’re in the right frame of mind to do this kind of thing because you have the necessary powers of concentration to be successful. Don’t hesitate to ask someone older or more experienced for assistance.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In any group situation today (casual get-together, classroom or large conference) you might encounter someone who is older and more experienced who has something valuable to share with you. Listen to this person because what they say could affect your goals.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Certain aspects of your private life will be public today. However, you won’t mind because others will learn how diligent and hard-working you are. You present an organized, disciplined role to everyone today, especially bosses or people in authority.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is an excellent day to make long-range plans to travel. Similarly, it’s a good day to make long-range plans regarding higher education, publishing or anything to do with the law and medicine. Your mind is excellently focused and you will pay attention to details.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You won’t mind rolling up your sleeves and tackling red-tape details you normally avoid. This means staying on top of your banking needs and dealing with taxes, debt, inheritances, wills and estates. (All the fun stuff.)
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Discussions with others, especially partners and close friends, will be serious and above all practical. This is a good day to discuss the division of labor or how to share expenses — touchy subjects you might have been avoiding. Define your wishes in clear terms.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You won’t mind tackling routine, mind-numbing work today because you have the necessary concentration and focus for details. Take advantage of this kind of energy and get as much done as possible
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): All creative activity requires a practical, routine element, which could include shopping or setting something up or cleaning up afterward. Today is the perfect day for this kind of thing. Just slog through what you have to do and you might enjoy it!
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Talk to a parent or an older family member today because their advice or counsel could be valuable. You have some practical decisions to make regarding where you live and perhaps dealing with a family member. This is the day to weigh what you really want to do.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re in a practical frame of mind today. That’s why this is a good time to sit down and consider budgets, make To Do lists and think about what you’ve been avoiding or putting off. Draw up a plan about how you can improve your situation.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take a serious look at your earnings and your assets, along with your debt and your liabilities. What does the picture look like? Even if it’s a bit grim, information is power. It’s better to know what’s happening than to hide your head in the sand like a sliced golf ball. Get the facts.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You might want to go off by yourself today to get a sober, realistic take on something. Someone older, especially whose wisdom you respect, might help you. What you’re looking for now are common-sense answers that are practical.
IF OCTOBER 24 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor B.D. Wong (1960) shares your birthday today. You are a hard-working perfectionist. You care about whatever you do (sometimes to extremes). You are naturally dramatic and have so much charisma you can virtually magnetize others to you. You know how to develop a craft or technique and you take pride in this skill. In the year ahead, a major choice or decision will arise — choose wisely.
