ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Moon Alert: We have the all clear today to do business (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions until 3:30 p.m. today. The Moon is in Leo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Meetings with others will take an exciting, unexpected turn today. You might be elected to something, or you might compete for something, or you could be surprised by someone entering the picture.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your ambition is strong today and if you can see a way to spin off and work independently, especially for yourself, you will do this. You don’t want to be micro-managed, and more and more you realize you want the independence to do your own thing.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You might travel suddenly and unexpectedly today. Similarly, publishing, the media, or anything to do with medicine and the law will hold some surprises as well. Everything is up in the air, ready to go in any direction.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep your pockets open because gifts, goodies and favors from others might suddenly come your way today. This is also a highly sexual day or (to be more specific) you feel highly sexed and turned on about something.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Arguments with others might break out today. Now you see it, now you don’t. Everyone is independent, which is why you don’t want to be told what to do and, of course, this includes you. Don’t push your luck with others because they will push back!
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have lots of energy to work today, but you want the space to do your own thing. You don’t want someone hovering over your shoulder. Quite likely, your work routine will be interrupted because something unusual will occur or someone will say something that sends things off in a different direction.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’re unusually enthusiastic about travel plans, romance, the arts, entertainment world, sports and anything to do with children today. All of these areas are full of potential surprises for you. (But a little flirtation on the side will really make your day.)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your home routine will be interrupted today. Hopefully, not because of small appliances breaking down. Minor breakages could occur. Unexpected company might drop by. Stay light on your feet so that you can cope with changing circumstances at home.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Although you’re bursting with bright ideas and eager to do something fresh and new, this is also an accident-prone day for you so pay attention to everything you say and do. Nevertheless, your enthusiasm will sell your ideas.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Fresh, stimulating ways to make money might occur to you today. Some of you might see ways to spin off and start your own business. However, because your finances are subject to surprise and unpredictability, you might find money or you might lose money.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You feel restless and impatient today because you want new experiences and something fresh to happen in your life. Naturally, you’ll be impulsive and up for spontaneous activities. New friendships are likely. You won’t be patient with restrictions.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Something secretive or exciting is going on behind the scenes. You might be aware of this or not, but it definitely is happening. Whatever the case, you sense this and you feel restless, perhaps even agitated. Cool your jets.
IF DECEMBER 31 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Ben Kingsley (1943) shares your birthday today. You like harmony, beauty and stability in your surroundings. You
are well-groomed because you are aware
of your appearance and you like to look good. Because of your appreciation for beauty, you naturally work to eradicate whatever is ugly or discordant in your surroundings. “Be gone!” In the year ahead, you will have an opportunity to work hard to build or construct something important to you.
