ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution: Avoid shopping or making important decisions all day today. The Moon is in Cancer.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is good day to go off by yourself and enjoy your privacy. If you can do this in the comforts of your own home, you’ll feel best. You might realize today just how much the habits of the past control the present. It’s dismaying but revealing.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Experiences will really influence your discussions today, especially with siblings and relatives. You want to get to the bottom of things. You won’t be satisfied with superficial discussions about the weather. Take note: This is a poor day to shop. Just putter.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Although you might be focused on financial matters today, including the desire to shop, read the Moon Alert above and save yourself future headaches. Avoid major decisions and commitments. And definitely shop for nothing other than food.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): The Moon is in your sign today, which makes you a bit more emotional than usual. However, it is what we call void of course in astrology, which means whatever you initiate today will tend not to fulfill its purpose. You will be foiled! Just enjoy chatting to others.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Solitude in beautiful surroundings will please you today. This is the perfect day to kick back and relax or just hang out where you live. Don’t attempt major tasks and don’t volunteer for anything or commit yourself to important deadlines. Be good to yourself.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Conversations with female acquaintances will be candid, sharing and rewarding today. Both parties will be willing to divulge to each other in a friendly way. It’s a good day to discuss your hopes and dreams for the future to see what others think.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Very likely, certain details about your personal life will be rather public today. Bosses, parents or people in authority will be aware of them. This might be minor; then again, it might not be! Just be aware of this. “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.”
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do whatever you can to indulge your desire to have a little adventure and spread your wings. You want scintillating conversation and a chance to acquire more knowledge. Travel if you can. Take note: This is a poor day to shop. (See Moon Alert above.)
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Avoid important decisions about inheritances, shared property, or how to divide something. If you try to approach these subjects, you will only have to do it again later. Nevertheless, you can fill your databank and learn more information.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have to go more than halfway when dealing with others because the Moon today is directly opposite your sign. Conflicts with others might be quite emotional. Guard against knee-jerk reactions.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If you want to work today, set yourself a gentle goal. You might tire easily or feel less motivated to complete something. You might also encounter delays and shortages. Just go gently and don’t make a big deal about anything. Easy does it.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is a wonderfully creative day for your sign. Enjoy any activity where you can express your creative talents. Or you might enjoy watching the talents of others by viewing movies, sports events and art openings. You might also like to relax with playful times with children. Romance can flourish in a pleasant way.
IF NOVEMBER 4 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Matthew McConaughey (1969) shares your birthday today. You are charming and have a down-to-Earth wisdom that others like. But you can arouse controversy because you provoke others with your candor and wit. In the long run, however, you win others to your side because of your magnetic charisma. At heart, you are generous. In the year ahead, your primary focus will be on partnerships and close friendships.
