ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Wow! For the second day in a row, it’s a poor time to shop or make important decisions. Another goofy day! The Moon is in Cancer.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is a good day to kick back and relax. Don’t make any demands on yourself. Enjoy the company of family or cocoon by yourself if possible. Take note: This is also a great day to be creative!
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Avoid important decisions today. Your mind is mush. Nevertheless, you can enjoy life. Do something to expand your horizons. Take a drive, take a different route to or from work, talk to people from other countries or different cultures. Explore!
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a great day to read, do puzzles or chat with others. Don’t give yourself a To Do list because this is a day to relax. However, it is possible to putter at little tasks and enjoy being pleasantly productive. Great day for writers.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Pamper yourself today. Take a long bath. Stay indoors or go out. Read or watch TV. Enjoy the company of others or hide. I realize if you are at home with three little kids this is more challenging, but you get the drift.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a perfect day to do nothing. Lucky Leos will stay in bed with a good book. Hopefully, room service is available. Or you can float around home dusting and rearranging things. This is also a creative day and a great day to schmooze! Your call.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a fantastically creative day. Artists, writers, photographers, sculptors — whoever — should plumb the depths of their soul and create whatever comes to mind. This is also a marvelous day to socialize with others and party your face off.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Although this is a wonderful day to schmooze with others, it’s also a great day to hide at home. You’re a social sign and every now and then you need to stay in your robe for two days and just veg out to get oriented. Let the dishes pile up. Let everything go. Send out for food.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is the second day in a row that we’ve had a strong Moon Alert, which means writers are madly creating novels, screenplays and poetry. This is a wonderful day to communicate with others but only about light stuff.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Although you are concerned with financial matters, now is a poor day for important financial decisions or major expenditures. Just make notes and think about things. Consider your options. Play out different scenarios in your mind. It’s a good day to let things “cook.”
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Today you can declare a truce with others because what’s the point? Life is short — and fat. We only get mad at people we care about. Let bygones be bygones, or as it is said in Sanskrit: Let bhagwans be bhagwans.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): With Mars in your sign, you are full of fiery energy! Just be careful where you direct this energy today because for most people, this is a free-floating day. That’s a polite way of saying everyone is mildly confused and lost in the ether. But it’s a pleasant confusion! Just don’t push things.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can be wonderfully creative today because this spacey quality allows you to expand your energy and embrace your muse. (That does sound a bit fancy.) Seriously, just go with the flow and let yourself be as creative as you can — you’ll love it!
IF DECEMBER 29 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Jude Law (1972) shares your birthday today. You are not strongly ambitious, yet you often end up in the right place at the right time talking to the right person. Invariably, your commanding style leads to roles of leadership. (Although you are also happy in a supportive role.) You have an ironic sense of humor. In the year ahead, your primary emphasis will be on partnerships and close friendships.
