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): By osmosis or psychic ability, you’re more tuned-in to the vibes of authority figures today. Trust your gut. If you think your boss, parent or teacher is unapproachable, give them a wide berth. Your Spidey sense is really working today!
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, which means you’ll enjoy seeing beautiful places and things. Visit parks, museums, art galleries or enjoy the artistic creations of others. You’ll also feel sympathetic to the hardships of people in distant lands.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Feelings of sympathy for those who are less fortunate might cause you to do some fund-raising or urge others to contribute to a charitable cause. Or you might offer the use of something that you share with others to someone who needs it.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Someone close to you might trigger sympathy so that you’re ready to sacrifice on their behalf or give them a sympathetic ear over a cup of coffee. Good to have Brownie points in that big bank in the sky so that when you need a sympathetic ear, someone will be there.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You won’t mind helping others at work today. You won’t feel put out or that you’re being a doormat or anything like that. Quite the opposite, you’ll be glad you had this opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a pleasant day for the arts, social occasions and warm times with children. Love relationships will be starry-eyed and romantic. It’s a great night for a romantic date. You also feel very sympathetic to the needs of children.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You might be a bit dreamy-eyed about something related to your family. This is the classic day to be sentimental about something, especially in discussions with a parent. Or you might feel sympathetic to a family member and look for ways to help them. It’s all good.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is a great day for artists and writers because your imagination can soar! The rest of us, however, might daydream a lot and spending time fantasizing, which is always pretty good for one’s mental health anyway. “Life is just a dream.”
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be careful about major financial decisions because you might over-idealize something or decide to give away more than you really should. (Don’t bet the farm.) If shopping, you will also be tempted by luxurious items.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re tuned-in to the vibes of others today, which is why you feel a bit like a mind reader. “Swam” sees all, knows all, tells nothing. Others might ask you for assistance. If so, you will readily help them, which is a good thing. Life is too short to be otherwise.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Mystical, hidden subjects will intrigue you today. Your sign rules the sky (aviation, rocket technology, radio waves, astronomy and astrology) so you’re always a little bit “way out there.” I’ve always felt the ’60s saying, “Far out, man,” had an Aquarian origin.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll find it rewarding and meaningful if you can lend your efforts to a charitable organization today. Or perhaps, you’ll pull it a little closer to home and simply help a friend or neighbor. Either way, it’s gratifying to be of service to others.
IF DECEMBER 21 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Kiefer Sutherland (1966) shares your birthday today. Your physical presence is so powerful, even your silence makes a statement. This is why you can appear determined and convincing to others. Personally, you’re a private person. You choose not to divulge much information about yourself. Nevertheless, you can project such power that people try to please you. An important decision will rise in your year ahead. Choose wisely.
