ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear today to do business (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions until 6:30 p.m. The Moon is in Libra.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Because the Moon is opposite your sign today, you will have to compromise and be more tolerant of others. Guard against knee-jerk reactions. Try to anticipate what the other person really wants. Be receptive.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is a good day to get better organized. Put things in neat piles. Get rid of what you don’t need by giving it away, selling it or recycling. Be systematic and orderly in going through things to reorganize your possessions.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Basically, this is a playful day. If possible, do whatever you want to do. Just please yourself: sleep in, play online poker, go for a walk, have a long lunch. Of course, some are under house arrest with kids or working at a job.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is a bit of a thumb-sucking day. You need to emotionally pamper yourself. If possible, you would like to hide at home and have a pleasant time just relaxing or puttering in your cozy little nest. (Messy or not.) Take a breather.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have a strong need to talk to others today. Not only do you have something to say, you want the company of others. You want to see other people and be seen. Female relatives may play a role in your day. Your conversations might be revealing.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll enjoy being surrounded by familiar objects today. Today, more than usual, you identify with what you own. In fact, you won’t want to part with things or spend money. It’s as if you want to hang on to everything that you have, at least for a little while.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll enjoy being with loved ones today because you have a strong need to belong. You won’t want to be alone. You want to be with people who want to be with you. You also need to be heard. (But you will be sympathetic to someone else who needs company.)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Privacy and solitude will appeal to you today. You just need a little time to pull your act together. You’ve been so focused on money, plus conversations have been so aggressive you need time to process everything that’s been going on. And don’t we all?
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotional contact with others, especially females, will be important to you today. In part, this is because you feel protective toward someone. Either you will offer emotional support or you will want it from someone.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Something about your very personal or intimate life might be on display today. Hopefully, you have nothing to hide. (But who has nothing to hide?) Fear not, relations with authority figures look positive. You’ve got them snowed.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It will please you to do something different today. If you can travel, by all means, travel. Go someplace you’ve never been before. Be a tourist in your own city. Try to learn something new and fascinating. Talk to people from other cultures. Go bowling.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your emotions are more intense than usual today, so be aware of this. (Your sign can be ecstatic and despondent all before noon.) You might feel possessive about something you own or even possessive about a person. (This is short-lived.)
IF DECEMBER 8 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Singer/actor Sammy Davis, Jr. (1925-1990) shares your birthday today. You are talented and imaginative. You throw yourself into whatever you create or do. (No halfway measures for you.) You have wild energy and enthusiasm. Because of your passion and devotion, you mesmerize friends and lovers. In turn, you are loyal to them. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
