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 Pisces.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): For the next month, the Sun will travel across the top of your chart acting like a spotlight and making others notice you more than usual, especially authority figures. Take note. People will ask you to take on increased responsibilities.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do everything you can to travel and explore educational opportunities in the next five-to-six weeks. Get out of town and expand your horizons. If you can’t travel, then expand your world through books, film and study.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your focus on shared property, taxes, debt, inheritances and anything that is jointly held will increase in the next six weeks. Plus you’ll be dealing with your partner’s income and wealth. Your sex drive will be amped, too.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): For the next month, the Sun will be opposite your sign, which is as far away from you as it gets all year. Since the Sun is your source of energy, you will need more sleep. Just accept this. An increased focus on partnerships is likely. Be tolerant because Mars is testing your patience.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Busy you! In the next six weeks, you will be task-oriented and working hard. Get as organized as possible. Make lists. Get enough rest. Get help from others and establish a support system for yourself to do the best job you can. Focus on health issues as well.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Despite your recent focus on improving things at home, you’re ready to party in the next month. Go on vacation! Romance, love affairs, the arts, sports, playful times with children and pleasure excursions are tops on the menu. (Mom always liked you best.)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Now your focus swings to home and family. For the next six weeks, discussions with parents will be significant plus you’ll be busy with renovations, visiting guests and increased chaos and activity at home. Remember to pamper yourself.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re hitting the pavement running for the next six weeks because your daily pace is accelerating. Don’t stay at home. Accept this new daily rhythm and get with it. Short trips, errands, conversations with everyone plus increased reading and writing are in the picture. Your dance card is full.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Money, cash flow, earnings and major expenditures will be on your mind for the next six weeks. You’re working hard to come up with ingenious ways to make money. Fortunately, in the next two years, money from other sources is likely.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): People and favorable circumstances will be attracted to you in the next month. No question about this. You’ll enjoy this because you have a stronger-than-usual need to express yourself. Fine. Go right ahead because your first duty is to yourself.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Because your year is ending, the next month is the perfect time to lie low and ponder what you want your new year to be all about. A little strategy is a good thing. Plus, if you clearly define some goals, the likelihood that you will achieve them is far greater.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A popular month ahead. You’re going to be out there flying your colors! Enjoy schmoozing with others. Join classes, clubs, groups and associations. Make new friends. Physical activities with others will please you. Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we diet.
IF DECEMBER 18 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor/humanitarian Brad Pitt (1963) shares your birthday today. You work meticulously to achieve long-range goals. You have complex plans, some of which you share, some of which are private. Even though your ideas are big, because you’re persistent, eventually, you achieve them. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for the last nine years will end to make room for something new.
