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 Taurus.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You might have revolutionary new ideas about how to share something with someone or how to reduce your debt or put a new spin on something. (It might also apply to inheritances.) Continue to ponder this but postpone final decisions until tomorrow.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You might instinctively sense what you can do to improve a partnership or close friendship. Don’t talk about it or act on this today. Just ponder your ideas because you’re probably right. Use today to fine-tune and hone your instincts. Act tomorrow.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You have great ideas about how to improve your health today, along with ideas about introducing reforms or improvements at work. Probably these ideas are doable and advantageous; nevertheless, don’t implement anything today. Wait until tomorrow.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is a creative day for you! You can be extremely productive if you work in the arts, the film industry, or anything to do with sports or dealing with children. Trust your gut instincts. You might have a chance to do something that improves the lives of others.!
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Think what you can do to improve garbage areas, recycling or anything related to plumbing, bathrooms and laundry spaces. You’ve got good ideas about how to improve these areas and perhaps improve other things at home.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll be extremely convincing talking to others today because not only are you persuasive, you’re original and imaginative! (“He can talk the hind legs off a horse.”) That’s what Prairie people say. Does it make sense? No. But then most local sayings don’t.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You might dream up new sources of income or ways to make a little money on the side. You might even see better ways of handling your money. Jot down these ideas and run them up the flagpole tomorrow to see if you still want to salute them.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is a good day to come up with ideas about how to improve your health, your appearance, even your style of relating to others. However, some of your ideas will be unrealistic and off the wall. Nevertheless, some of it will stick. Just keep thinking.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Research or sluicing for answers could pay off today because everything’s a bit of a wild card. You might zero in on what you’re looking for almost intuitively, or you might be waaaay out in left field. Who knows? Good day to get to the bottom of things.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You might encounter a powerful person in a group situation today. (Or you might be that person.) Whatever the case, even if you’re swept along by someone’s convincing arguments, do not agree to anything today. Sleep on it until tomorrow.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a good day to use your influence to clean house or virtually clean up something. Since people now grant you respect and power, why not use this to benefit others as well as yourself? (Postpone important decisions or purchases until tomorrow.)
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Ideally, you will wield creative power for good today. You could be very convincing teaching others your ideas or vice versa, you might encounter a powerful teacher who mesmerizes you. The best way to use today’s energy is for the general good of all.

Furthermore, you know how to motivate people. You work well with others! You often travel great distances for your career. You know how to fine-tune things to keep them working. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new.
