ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Not until 11:45 a.m. today do we have the all clear to do business (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Virgo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today is confusing but basically upbeat. It’s hard to be organized, so don’t try to do too much. However, it’s easy to be enthusiastic about something! Just enjoy your day. Go make promises you can deliver, especially to siblings and relatives. Easy does it.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is a pleasant, easygoing day. You will want to relax, sleep in, and do as little as possible. Sports events will totally appeal. You will also be turned on by love affairs, social diversions, movies, and playful times with children. It’s a quiet party day.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will truly enjoy being at home today where you will want to relax in decadent luxury. Enjoy the company of family and loved ones. Be aware that discussions with authority figures are subject to confusion.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your imagination is in overdrive today, which means this is a good day for those of you who write. However, conversations with others will be a bit off-the-wall and possibly, confusing. You’re entertaining big ideas and you hope others will agree with your plans.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be careful with money today because there’s an element of confusion. It’s almost as if you have Vaseline on your lens. Plus you’re inclined to go overboard in spending as well as making financial decisions.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You might feel more emotional than usual today because the Moon is in your sign. Furthermore, you might feel confused because it’s opposing fuzzy Neptune. Nevertheless, positive influence from Jupiter makes you feel that all is right with the world. Be prudent.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You need to relax (probably sleep in) or hide in some way today so that you can pull your act together before you take it on the road. Travel plans look exciting, as do matters related to publishing, the media, medicine and the law. Lookin’ good!
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Keep things light today when talking to others, especially in groups, whether they are small coffee klatches or large get-togethers. A lot of confusion is possible. You might agree to something that you later regret.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In your eagerness to please an authority figure, especially a female relative (Mom?), you might go along with something that you will later regret. Joyful feelings of cooperation with others could create an enthusiasm that clouds the real issue. Be careful.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Travel plans look exciting! Ditto for publishing or something related to the law, medicine and higher education. Make sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew or commit to more than you can handle. However, things might be as good as they appear.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t count your chickens before they’re barbecued. Nevertheless, party plans, sports events, romantic adventures and something to do with children look very promising today! The cost of something might be more than you estimate.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You might feel torn between pleasing a partner or close friend and keeping everyone at home happy. People have big expectations! Better to start with baby steps before you hit the pavement running. Just do what is possible. Don’t stretch your budget or your energy.
IF JANUARY 1, 2013, IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Filmmaker Deepa Mehta (1966) shares your birthday today. You are comfortable with authority and giving orders to others, both at home and on the job. Basically, you like form, structure and organization. You are honest, loyal and reliable. Be careful of taking on more responsibilities than you can handle. (Personally, you’re very sensitive.) Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
