ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 6:45 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. today. After that the Moon moves from Aries and Taurus.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is a feel-good day. Do something different, especially travel. You feel very open to new experiences and you want to get a sense of being out there and grabbing more of the world. Good day for publishing, legal matters and higher education. Enjoy!
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Gifts, goodies and favors from others can come your way today. Keep your pockets open. Sexual intimacy is also promising. You might also be encouraged because your partner is earning more or benefiting you in some way.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a great day to schmooze with others, whether close friends or members of the general public. You feel friendly and your optimism is contagious. Others are attracted to you. Caution against being more generous than you can afford.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Things flow well at work today and you feel good, especially health-wise. In your efforts to cooperate with others, make sure you don’t agree to something beyond your comfort zone. Don’t be too eager to please.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is definitely a fun-loving day geared for pleasure. Grab a movie, watch sports, see performance art or musical events or enjoy playful times with children. Romantic relationships will delight.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is the perfect day to entertain at home. You might already have planned to do so but if not, why not do so spontaneously? Invite the gang over for pizza and beer. Enjoy good times with loved ones over food and drink. Don’t get in over your head with real-estate deals.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Because you’re in such a positive frame of mind today, you’ll enjoy talking to others, especially neighbors and siblings. This is also a good day for writers, salespeople, teachers, actors and even those who drive for a living. Your optimism will carry the day.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is a good day for business and commerce, although it is possible to see something in rosier terms than it actually is. Be aware of this. Nevertheless, pockets are open and money is flowing — hopefully, flowing your way!
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Fair Venus is in your sign today dancing with your ruler Jupiter. Of course, Jupiter always wants to take things to the next level. (And Jupiter likes to kick back and relax.) It won’t be easy to diet today or to discipline yourself. Au contraire, you want to go overboard having fun!
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you can squeeze in a little time just for yourself today you will love the privacy. You’ll feel pampered because some solitude will be a mind-expanding experience for you. Time to reflect will settle your soul and possibly trigger inspiration.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a marvelous day to schmooze with others, especially in group situations. Attend classes, join clubs and groups and meet pals for Happy Hour. You’ll particularly enjoy hanging out with creative, artistic people. It feels good to “belong” today.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A love relationship with someone older, wiser, richer or more worldly could begin today. Others might ask for your creative input on something: design, office layout, gardening, cooking anything.
IF DECEMBER 22 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Hector Elizondo (1936) shares your birthday today. You need goals to inspire you and you prepare for these goals. You are conscientious because you want to be ready for new developments and opportunities that come your way. You have a great sense of humor, although you are often modest and low-key. In the year ahead, you will work to build or construct something important to you. Your rewards will soon follow.
