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 Cancer.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Family discussions will go well today, especially with female relatives or mothers. You might consider what future resources you can count on to make improvements at home. Good day to do repairs or just cocoon studying or reading.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Discussions about your past or your childhood will likely take place today. It’s easy to be relatively balanced between your logical thinking and your feelings. However, you might be a bit sentimental about something. (Gosh.)
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You feel more attached to your possessions than usual. If someone wants to throw something out you own — you will resist. (“I might need that one day.”) If you go shopping today, your spending style will be emotional rather than practical.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You feel a strong need to communicate to others today. This is because you feel both emotionally giving and emotionally needy today. “Iím a yo-yo!” (Hey, no big deal.) Just find a sympathetic ear who also needs advice.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Research into anything will go very well today. You will be happy working quietly behind the scenes or alone. You’ve been socializing a lot lately and even you need to catch your breath. You will also be intrigued by some secrets today. (Everyone loves a secret.)
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Relationships with groups (small or big) could be meaningful for you today. You might want to confide in someone or vice versa. Certainly, a discussion with someone might cause you to modify your goals. (This person will likely be a female.) “Mom?”
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Others will notice you today, especially people in power or positions of authority. In particular, they are in a position to learn information about your private life. If this is the case, one reason they might learn this private stuff about you is because you’re talking a lot!
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Mercury in your sign today is lined up with the Moon, which makes you talkative and eager to learn. Explore publishing avenues and opportunities with higher education, medicine and the law. Travel will please you. Talk to women from other cultures.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): This is an excellent day to wrap up financial matters and loose ends related to inheritances, wills, estates, insurance and shared property. Conversations about these issues could be a bit emotional. Nevertheless, you have the drive to finish it all.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You might introduce a close friend or partner to a group or vice versa. This is the classic day to bring people together to see how well they can work or respond to each other. You might be looking for endorsement or approval.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is good day to tackle routine work and finish what is already on your plate. You might also explore ideas about how to improve your health. If you talk to someone who is an expert or an authority on these matters, it will probably benefit you. Why not?
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is a playful, flirtatious day for you. You want to have fun and you don’t want to feel guilty about enjoying yourself. Discussions with people from other cultures or from far away could be part of the picture. It’s easy for you to identify with others and feel very sympathetic to them.
IF DECEMBER 1 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Jeremy Northam (1961) shares your birthday today. You have a glib humor that delights others. Furthermore, people love your sassy attitude and daring willingness to openly speak your mind. You are generous, friendly and definitely flirtatious. You’re a free spirit, which is why it’s important that you have the freedom to express yourself. You are beginning a fresh new cycle in the year ahead. Open any door!
