ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 5 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 Scorpio.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You begin this week on a serious note with concerns about shared property, inheritances, taxes and debt. There are loose details you want to sort out, resolve, define and turf. Naturally, you’ll be thinking about this stuff for the next few weeks.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Serious discussions with partners and close friends are inevitable today because the Sun, the Moon, Mercury and Saturn are all directly opposite your sign. (Whoa Nelly!) Initially, you might feel discouraged because of what someone else has to say.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You are in work mode for the next few weeks and today, you’re serious. You want to get the job done and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish this. Fortunately, you’ll find it easy to wrap up and finish what is already on your plate.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Children might seem to be an increased burden or responsibility today. In fact, the arts, sports and areas that are usually fun seem full of serious concerns. Fortunately, you feel healthy, invigorated and ready to work hard.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your focus on home, family and your domestic world continues. Discussions with a parent might be significant. Don’t be discouraged if someone is critical or demands more care and attention.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Today you’re busy with short trips, errands, reading, writing and dealing with siblings and relatives. Something could make you feel depressed or discouraged but fear not, it’s very brief. It might be someone pontificating with authority who loves to hear the sound of their voice.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’re focused on cash flow and money today. Actually, this will be a strong focus for several weeks. A reminder: Those of you who are looking for work should try where you applied before or even worked before. In other words, “go backwards.”
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Today the Sun and the Moon are in your sign (along with Saturn and retrograde Mercury) so it’s all about you, isn’t it? This is why you feel so passionately intense about everything. And this is also why everything is coming your way.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Although you’re dealing with retrograde Mercury causing delays, shortages, mixed-up communications and goofy insanity, fortunately, fiery Mars is in your sign giving you tons of energy! You need this energy right now to cope with your life!
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In a meeting today (large or small) someone, especially a female, might try to put you down or criticize you. Don’t be discouraged. Sometimes people try to cut the heads off others so that they can appear taller. The truth is, your public image is very positive.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dealings with bosses, parents, teachers, the police and authority figures in your life will be serious today. Someone might haul you up on the carpet. Just be aware that because aspects of your private life are public, it’s best to be careful and discreet. Ya think?
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is a good day to rethink plans related publishing, higher education, medicine, the law or travel. You know that you want to expand your world in some way. (You’re itching to do this.) The question is how, in terms of practical and financial limitations?
IF NOVEMBER 12 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Musician Neil Young (1945) shares your birthday today. You are seductive and attractive because you have a sensual energy that few can resist. (Because of this many of you have secret love relationships.) You enjoy beauty and love to be in attractive surroundings. When you want something, you get it; in fact, your ability to make things happen is almost magical! In the year ahead, your primary focus will be on partnerships and close friendships.
