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 Aries.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You definitely have a freedom-seeking urge today. (Even more than usual.) This is why you will grab any opportunity to do something different or fly off in a new direction. You feel spontaneous and up for anything.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You feel restless today because you have that feeling you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. Don’t worry if you’re a bit scattered in your approach to doing things today because many people are changing plans or caught off-guard by unexpected events.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A female acquaintance might say or do something that surprises you, especially in a group situation. Or you might meet someone who is new and unusual. Or perhaps someone says or does something that causes you to change your goals? Anything could happen.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Bosses and authority figures might say or do something that surprises you today. It could be pleasant but it could also be unpleasant. Guard against knee-jerk reactions and definitely don’t quit your day job. If you’re going to do that, do it under calmer circumstances.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Travel plans will change or be interrupted or surprise you in some way today. Things are very uncertain here, especially with airlines. However, you might make a breakthrough with political or religious ideas.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): An unexpected little dustup or dispute about shared property, taxes, inheritances, insurance matters or anything you own jointly with others might happen. Make friends with your bank account. Make sure you know what’s happening.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Conversations with partners and close friends might be a tad testy today. Little arguments might break out. On the other hand this doesn’t have to happen at all. This same unpredictable quality could simply mean someone will suggest something different.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your work routine will be interrupted today, perhaps because of computer crashes, arguments with co-workers or staff shortages. Yikes! Maybe all of the above. (Horrors.) You do feel very independent and don’t want to be micromanaged, that’s for sure.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): This is an accident-prone day for your kids, so be extra-vigilant. Romance with a female lover might be exciting or rocky. People feel independent and restless today. If you feel bored, think twice before risking a long-term relationship for a mere bonbon.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be patient with family members today, especially females, because upsets are likely. Small appliances might break down, minor breakages could occur. Things are unpredictable. You can have an easier day if you are patient and go slowly.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign, so take it easy. Give yourself lots of time for whatever you’re doing so that you have wiggle room if something goes wrong because it probably will. Be patient with female relatives and neighbors. On the upside, it’s not a boring day!
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Sudden ways to make money or boost your income might occur to you today. Alternatively, you might lose money. This is a tricky day and anything to do with your finances is a bit unstable, but it’s also potentially creative! Go figure.
IF DECEMBER 20 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Writer Peter May (1951) shares your birthday today. You love to initiate new situations. You’re quick-thinking and productive! Despite your speed, you have intense focus. You’re quite philosophical about life and yet always a grounded realist. You’re also extremely hard-working. You can be very staunch when defending your beliefs. Your year ahead will predominantly focus on close friendships and partnerships.
