ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 2 a.m. until 4 p.m. today. The New Moon occurs at 2:42 a.m.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today’s New Moon is the best time all year to ask yourself what further education could improve your job. Or could you learn more through travel? What further training will enhance the richness of your life? (When you stop learning, you get old.)
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Each New Moon is an opportunity to make resolutions. Today’s New Moon urges you to focus on the values of others. Are you willing to compromise? Do you appreciate that others could have valid values that are different from yours?
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The only New Moon opposite your sign all year is taking place today. This is your best chance of the year to think how you can improve partnerships and your closest relationships. Any ideas? Why not improve your life?
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): What can you do to improve your job, the way you do your job, or the attitude you have to your job? Furthermore, what can you do to improve your health? These are the perfect questions to ask yourself today.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): How well do you balance play with work and duty? Children freely play and express themselves, drawing, dancing and singing. Sadly, as adults we become passive with creative expression. What can you do to awaken opportunities to express your creativity?
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Use the energy of this New Moon day to make a few resolutions about how you can improve your home and also how you can improve your relationships with family members. What are one or two things you might focus on doing?
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): We are gregarious creatures. We need to socialize. Think about your style of communicating every day. Do you wait for others to speak first? This New Moon day is the best day all year to examine your communication style.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your attitude to something will influence how it manifests in your life. How do you view money? If you think money is the root of all evil, you won’t hold onto it for long. Money is the energy to get things done. Think about this today.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The only New Moon in your sign all year is taking place today. That’s why it’s a perfect day to take a realistic look in the mirror to determine what you can do to improve the image you are sending out to the world. Any ideas?
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your basic values hugely influence your life whether you are aware of this or not simply because your core beliefs influence your decisions and your decisions dictate your future. What are your core beliefs? What guides you?
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): No one needs to tell an Aquarius how important friendship is. Are you happy with the friends you have? Do you hang out with quality people? Of course, the secret to having friends is to be friendly. This is also a good day to think about your dreams and hopes for the future. Are they clear in your mind?
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your attitude to authority figures hugely affects your personal and professional life. Today’s New Moon offers you the best chance all year to think about how you instinctively respond to parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs and the police.
IF DECEMBER 13 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Singer Taylor Swift (1989) shares your birthday today. You overlook nothing. You’re attentive to detail because you believe in taking care of everything and working slowly to achieve what you want. You work for long-range results. You’re an observer of the human condition and are very perceptive. Many of you work with your hands to create things. In the year ahead, you will work to build or construct something important to you.
