ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 6 a.m. today, we have the all clear to do business (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Virgo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Hurrah! This can be a highly productive day for you. The energy around you will actually help you want to be better organized and more productive. Even if you have to sit in a traffic jam, you will probably end up cleaning your front dash.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is an excellent day for partners to sit down and discuss the education or care of their children. This is also a good day to discuss long-range business plans. Yada, yada, yada.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Tackle home repairs today because whatever you do will give you a feeling of gratification and personal sense of reward. (Well, you have to do something beyond taking out the garbage. On the other hand, who knows? Maybe that’s a big deal for you?)
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your attention to detail is excellent today, which means this is a good day to tackle routine work that requires focus. You won’t overlook things. Furthermore, you won’t resent doing something that is repetitive or boring.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a good day to take a serious look at your cash flow (or cash dribble, as it might well be — now we’re talking my category). Primarily, you are concerned with the long-term future and wondering how to keep your home secure.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Today the Moon is in your sign, which is a good thing for you. Your luck will be slightly improved. You will definitely be very careful and your approach to anything or any kind of work you do. You feel cautious, not frivolous.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is an excellent day to do anything to do with research because you’re in the right frame of mind. You have the endurance necessary, plus your attention to detail today is excellent. Nothing will escape your notice. (Don’t forget to wear your deerstalker.)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone older, very likely a female, might have some excellent advice for you today. Or possibly you are the Wise Crone dispensing helpful tidbits to others. Whatever the case, discussions with others might solidify or secure your ability to achieve goals.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Discussions with authority figures (parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs and the police) will deal with real, practical matters today. No doubt, you will impress them with your serious and conscientious attitude. People want practical solutions.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is an excellent day to study practically anything. It’s also a good day to make long-range travel plans and to have discussions about plans regarding the law, medicine, publishing or legal matters. Your concentration is nicely focused today.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can probably get a lot done today if you have to deal with practical matters related to inheritances, insurance, taxes, debt or anything to do with shared property. For starters, you’re in the frame of mind to deal with boring stuff like this.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Discussions with partners and close friends will successfully deal with serious practical matters. It’s a good thing because both parties want serious practical solutions. Discuss the division of labor or sharing expenses (read: “How come I’m stuck paying all the bills?”)
IF DECEMBER 5 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Opera tenor Jose Carreras (1946) shares your birthday today. You are capable of great deeds because of your confidence and belief in yourself. You are lively, dynamic and brave. You have an energetic personality and always maintain the face of an optimist. You are generous and candid about sharing your world with others. In the year ahead, a major change could take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2004.
