ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear today to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The New Moon in Scorpio occurs at 4:08 p.m.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): The New Moon today is your best opportunity in the year to focus on how you can get out of debt and establish your footing so you feel more secure. It’s also wise to clearly define your relationship with shared property and anything you own jointly with others.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Today’s New Moon is the perfect time to set intentions about how to improve your partnerships and closest friendships. This is the best day in more than a year to do this. Ask yourself what you can do to enjoy better close relationships with others.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Every New Moon is the time to make resolutions. Today’s New Moon is your chance to think how you can be more efficient, effective and productive in everything you do. In addition, what can you do to improve your health?
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Our society is more work-oriented than ever. But it’s important to have a balanced life because it’s not all about work. Opportunities to play and express our creative talents are enriching and fulfilling.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): What can you do to improve your relationships with family members? It’s so easy to take family for granted. Despite their importance in our lives, we often treat them with less consideration than we show a stranger! Guilty or not?
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Today’s New Moon is your chance to think how you can improve your everyday communications with everyone. Are you clear in your speech? Do you listen when others speak? (Or are you waiting for your chance to jump in?) Think about this.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is one of the best days of the year to ask yourself if you like how you earn your money. Is there something else you would rather do? While we’re on the subject, what’s your attitude to money? Your attitude to something will affect how it accumulates in your life.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Because the only New Moon in your sign all year is taking place today, this is the perfect time to take a realistic look in the mirror and ask yourself what you can do to improve your image. After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Any ideas?
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Because many of you are making radical changes, letting go of places, people and possessions, the New Moon today is the perfect time to reflect and get in touch with your inner world. What makes you feel secure and satisfied? What matters most?
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The New Moon today offers you the perfect opportunity (the best in a year) to think about how you can improve your relationship with friends and groups. Of course, if your relationships are perfect, no need to ponder this. But who has perfect relationships? (Aside from me.)
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Because every New Moon is a chance to begin something new or generate a new attitude or create a new habit, this is the perfect day for you to ask yourself about your style of relating to parents and authority figures in your life. Any room for improvement?
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): What further education or training can you get to improve your job skills or enhance your life in general? Can you travel somewhere that would be really meaningful for you? Why not set some goals about future travel plans or ways to expand your knowledge?
IF NOVEMBER 13 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Gerard Butler (1969) shares your birthday today. You make insightful observations of the society around you because you’re always involved and you care. You can be frank and astute but you can also be very witty. You are convincing because you are personally convinced of your own point of view. Above all, you’re a realist. The next year is the beginning of a new nine-year cycle for you. Open any door!
