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 Pisces.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’re definitely focused on debt, taxes, shared property and your responsibilities in all these areas. You feel quite serious about something related to all this today. Perhaps you are working hard to get out of debt? Focus on doing what you can.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Partnerships and relationships can be marvelous, but inevitably they have their challenges and even horrible times. That’s life. Today, perhaps more than usual, you feel the restrictions or obligations in a relationship and they feel heavy. Don’t worry.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You might have to face a job today that is onerous routine or repetitive. It’s a bummer. On top of that, your energy feels low today. Just focus on what you have to get done and slog away at it. You can do it.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Certain situations with children (or perhaps a romantic partner) might create challenges for you today. You feel world-weary trying to address these issues. More than that, you feel defeat. But you know, it’s just how things look today. Don’t worry.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your concerns for a family member, especially a parent, weigh heavily on you today. Just accept what is happening and do your best to offer your assistance with the solution. Many of you are facing home repairs or the breakdown of appliances. (Aaagghh!)
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’re worried. But don’t let this get you down. Remember that old saying: “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere.” Corny but true. (I put that up on the back of my bedroom door when I was 12.)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Lately, it seems like your finances are just too tight. And you look around and wonder where do all these rich people come from? Where do they get their money? And how come there’s so many of them? Today your concerns are perhaps more imagined than real.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is a good day to organize or plan something because you can work easily with structure, form and order. In fact, you want to introduce more order into your life. Don’t be worried if it’s a bit stiff relating to others today. It is what it is.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There’s a good chance you feel cut off from others today. You might feel isolated or alone. Optimism is one of the key factors important for Sagittarians. It’s a survival issue for you. Don’t give in to negative thinking.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A friend, especially in a group situation, could be quite discouraging today. Or perhaps you fear that you cannot assume the roles of leadership in a group. Either way, this is just a self-confidence issue. The truth is nobody is really as confident as they appear. It’s all smoke and mirrors.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s not easy talking to bosses, parents and authority figures today. (Ironically, you want to make a good impression.) Just finish the responsibilities you already have on your plate before you assume new ones. Give yourself a break.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Although your sense of adventure is somewhat dampened, your serious frame of mind will help you to excel at study or schoolwork. Don’t take on too much because you might feel tired. Keep your head down and your powder dry.
IF OCTOBER 25 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Blues musician Coco Robicheaux (1947-2011) shares your birthday today. You are a complex being. Outwardly, you appear solid, strong and very much in control of your world. But inwardly, you are whimsical, imaginative and constantly changing. You like your world to be orderly, which is why you like to maintain control. In the coming year, you will build or construct something important to you. (Your rewards will soon follow.)
