ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear today to do business (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Capricorn.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Unexpected opportunities to travel somewhere will make your day. Others might have a sudden chance to get further training or education. Expect to meet people who are different or from unusual backgrounds. This is an exciting, stimulating day!
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Unexpected gifts, goodies or favors from others might drop in your lap today. You might suddenly get a loan approved. You can definitely benefit from the wealth and resources of others in a sudden, unexpected way.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Friends and partners hold a few surprises today. They might have unusual suggestions about what to do or they might just say or do something that’s kinda shocking. Quite possibly, someone will demand greater freedom in a relationship.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): The introduction of new technology to your work might be exciting. New staff members or a new routine is also possible. Be open to changes because you can broaden your world and perhaps improve how you do things. Computer glitches are in the picture. Ouch.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Surprise flirtations could be thrilling today. Unexpected invitations to sports events, a movie or any social occasion will please you. However, Leo parents should be extra vigilant because this is a mildly accident-prone day for your kids. Keep your eyes peeled.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Family conversations will be lively and inventive today. You might see an entirely new approach to doing repairs at home. Or you might dream up a party or an event where you decide to invite people to your home. Something unexpected is taking place.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your daily routine will be interrupted today, hopefully for fun reasons. But quite literally, detours are likely. Expect to meet new faces and see new places. Be careful because this is a mildly accident-prone day for you. You’re full of bright new ideas today.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re full of innovative money-making ideas today. Clever you! However, something surprising to do with your cash flow could occur. You might find money; you might lose money. Don’t be afraid to suggest something. Run it up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You feel alive and mentally awake today! This is a great day to tackle problems because your mind is unusually resourceful and inventive. You have a magpie interest in absolutely everything today, if only briefly.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is a great day to take up any kind of study or do research, especially in math, science, technology and even the occult or mystical matters. Your mind is ready to break through limitations that are self-imposed or previously misunderstood.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is your kind of day! Expect to meet some real characters today, people who are bizarre or unorthodox. Furthermore, in all kinds of group situations, something unexpected will occur that sends things in a new direction. But it will be lively and stimulating!
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Bosses, parents and authority figures might do or say something that shocks you today. (Grist for the grapevine?) However, you might also feel rebellious dealing with authority figures. You don’t want to be micromanaged. Guard against knee-jerk reactions and don’t quit your day job.
IF DECEMBER 14 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Comedienne/actress Miranda Hart (1972) shares your birthday today. You are highly original and not afraid of being different. (You enjoy an audience.) Some would consider you eccentric — you don’t care. You are definitely daring but not reckless. Privately, you’re philosophical but you do like to provoke others! (Puncturing sacred cows.) In your year ahead, a major change will take place, perhaps something as significant as what occurred around 2004.
