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 Virgo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’re ready to work and make practical plans. Many of you are setting firm resolutions about your health, especially in practical terms. “I’m going to do this; I’m not going to do that.” You also want to know what resources you can count on.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is an excellent day to discuss the care and education of children. Some will take a look at the feasibility of taking a vacation or exploring some creative adventures. Others will make long-range plans about social obligations and parties.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Discussions at home will deal with how to get better organized and also how to secure the home in a practical way, especially in terms of financial flow, repairs and how everyone is settling in for the New Year. Someone older might have excellent advice.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re happy to be alone with your thoughts today. This doesn’t mean you’re depressed; it simply means you’re not particularly frivolous because you’re concerned about serious matters. Do be very careful in your approach to any work you do.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If shopping today, you will buy practical items that last for a long time because you’re in a thrifty, frugal frame of mind. You want to address sensible issues. You also want to feel more secure about money coming in down the road.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a good day for your sign. Things will tend to go your way even though you actually don’t expect too much. You’re in a practical, serious frame of mind and you want some results. Start off with a To Do list. Vacations and social events are on your mind.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Research and behind-the-scenes work will go well today because you feel like burrowing deep and discovering new data. (Isn’t it great to be smart ’cause then you know stuff?) In particular, you’re concerned with your cash flow (dribble?) and maintaining and reorganizing your possessions.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Discussion with an older female today will benefit you. This will likely take place in a group situation rather than on a one-to-one basis. Whatever is said will help you to assess your goals. It might also be some specific advice because this person has more experience.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Discussions with authority figures — bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police — will go well today because people are in a sensible frame of mind and they want practical results. You want a warm feeling in your tummy about where you’re headed.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Great day to make long-range travel plans as well as plans for publishing opportunities or anything related to higher education, courses and medical matters. Things will go your way today, so make use of this opportunity. Ask the universe for what you want.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take a hard look at bills, taxes, inheritances and other matters that influence your financial welfare. When it comes to money, it’s important to have information. It’s also important to know how much is coming in, how much is going out, and what your debt scene is.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Discussions with an older friend will be meaningful today. This person could provide advice or give you reassurance about your own take on things. (It’s good to talk to someone who has been around the block.)
IF JANUARY 2 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Kate Bosworth (1983) shares your birthday today. Because you are so hardworking and dedicated, you put enormous demands upon yourself. You can work as a team or work alone. You take your responsibilities seriously and you have a great sense of humor. Caution against working so hard that you suffer from burnout. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will end to make room for something new.
