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): Unexpected opportunities to travel or get further education or training might fall in your lap today. If this happens, your window of opportunity will be brief so act quickly. You might also meet someone unusual, bohemian or “different.” An interesting day!
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep your pockets open because gifts, goodies and favors from others are coming your way today. Alternatively, you might benefit indirectly because your partner gets a bonus or a gift.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Unexpected flirtations or invitations from others could make your day today. Surprise opportunities to form working units or partnerships are also likely. Act quickly because these possibilities are fleeting. You snooze, you lose.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is an interesting day at work. The introduction of new high-tech equipment is likely. Or you might be challenged with something technological, including computers. An unusual staff arrangement or a new staff person might make things interesting today.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Surprise flirtations might titillate your fancy today. Sudden invitations to sports events or social occasions might also please you. Surprising news regarding children is likely. Something stimulating and unexpected will happen.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Surprise company might show up at your door today. Or you might buy something unusual, modern or high-tech for where you live. A family member might have unusual news. (“I’m pregnant!”) Admittedly, small appliances could break down and minor breakages could occur. Oops!
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is an exciting day full of stimulating situations and meeting new contacts. You’re also full of inventive, clever ideas. Stay light on your feet because spontaneous changes will take place.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might find money today but you might also lose it. Sudden job opportunities might come your way or unexpected news at your job. Spontaneous purchases are likely; nevertheless, keep your receipts.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Do something different today because you’re bored with your daily routine. Fortunately, surrounding circumstances will probably present you with eclectic, different situations. Unusual people might cross your path. You might also strike up an unconventional romance.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re playing your cards close to your heaving bosom because something unusual is going on behind the scenes. Clandestine love affair would be classic. So would a threesome. Or maybe you just have a hidden gift that makes you excited and you’re not telling anyone? Do tell!
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is your kinda day! You love characters and spontaneous, exciting situations — and that’s just what’s in store for you. Friends might surprise you. You will almost certainly be caught off-guard by something or by meeting someone unusual.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A sudden promotion or unexpected praise from a surprising source could make your day. Just as easily, a surprise flirtation with your boss might also catch you off-guard. If you have a chance to promote yourself, act quickly.
IF DECEMBER 19 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Jake Gyllenhaal (1980) shares your birthday today. You are brave and strong, and capable of overcoming great difficulties. You have an appealing quality (sometimes quiet, sometimes passionate) that arouses emotions in others. You are independent and always blaze your own trail because, essentially, you are a free spirit and very comfortable in your own skin. Your year ahead is the beginning of an exciting new cycle. Open any door!
