ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 9:15 a.m. until 10:45 p.m. (Gulp.) After that the Moon moves from Leo into Virgo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is a highly creative day, which makes it a productive day for artists and creative types. (This includes almost all Aries!) It’s also a great day to enjoy vacations, parties, sports events and playful times with children. Accept all invitations. Get out and enjoy yourself.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You might enjoy cocooning at home today. Something will occur that makes you feel nostalgic or very sympathetic to a family member. Regardless of what happens, postpone important decisions related to home and family until tomorrow.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your imagination is in overdrive today, which makes this a great day for writers and liars. (Writers get paid for their lies.) You feel tuned-in when talking to others; nevertheless, don’t agree to anything important today.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Be careful with all financial matters today. Don’t spend money on anything other than food. Don’t make financial decisions. Just remember that whatever you initiate today might not fulfill its intended purpose.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Relations with partners and close friends are pretty hazy today. Nevertheless, they are mutually caring. No matter how much you sympathize with someone else, delay your decision about giving someone the shirt off your back until tomorrow.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Today the Moon is in your sign but it opposes Neptune. This makes you doubtful, hesitant and possibly even tired. It’s as if issues are clouded and you’re not sure what to do. Relax. You’re right on course. Everybody should postpone important decisions today.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is a fun, pleasant day to schmooze with others, however, relations with a female in particular could be confusing. Your best efforts to comfort or help someone might be misunderstood or even taken advantage of. (Whaaat?) Be kind but don’t be a doormat.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be careful dealing with authority figures today because you could be misunderstood or, vice versa, you won’t clearly see what they expect of you. In fact, some might deliberately or accidentally mislead you. If you think something fishy is going on, it is. It always is.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Others notice you, especially bosses and VIPs. Furthermore, they might learn the details of your private life in some way. Worse yet, they might jump to the wrong conclusions. Be clear about how you wish to be perceived today. Don’t be coy or misleading.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Although you feel sympathetic to the sufferings of others today, make sure you get your facts right. You are ripe for the picking today. Don’t be a sucker. If you think someone is playing fast and loose with you, there’s a good chance you’re right. Tread carefully!
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t lend money or your possessions to anyone today. It’s easy to be misled by others and even yourself. (“Are you kidding me? Actually, I think I’m kidding me.”) Wishing often makes it so — but not always.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You might be deceived by someone because misunderstandings based on false assumptions are rife today. However, it’s a wonderfully imaginative day, which is great if you’re doing creative work. Keep things light and enjoy schmoozing. If you’re disappointed, ask yourself if your expectations were realistic.
IF NOVEMBER 7 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Musician Joni Mitchell (1943) shares your birthday today. Because you’re a natural investigator, you’re curious about everything and love to explore the unusual. You’re not afraid of obstacles; in fact, you rise to the challenge. You want to know what makes things work or how things evolve. You hate to be bored, which is why you’re not afraid to learn by trial and error. Your year ahead will be highly social and beneficial for all relationships.
