ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 7 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. today. After that the Moon moves from Virgo to Libra.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): There is excitement in the air today, especially when talking to authority figures — bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police. They might say or do something that surprises you or vice versa.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Travel plans sound exciting. However, there’s a strong chance something will be changed, canceled or delayed. Some of you will dream up new trips or put a new spin on your agenda. Medical and legal appointments might change.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Make friends with your bank account and stay on top of details about inheritances, taxes, debt or shared property. Is the posse after you? Is something overdue? Some unexpected surprises related to the wealth or support from others are likely today.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Something unusual will happen in discussion with others today, either because they will throw you a curve ball or they might have exciting, surprising news. People feel very independent today, which could test some partnerships.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Interruptions to your job are likely today due to power outages, computer crashes, staff shortages and canceled meetings. Allow extra time for everything so that you have some wiggle room to cope if things go south.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A surprise flirtation could make your heart go pitter-patter. Creative ideas are flashing through your mind, which makes this a great day to explore artistic possibilities. Guard against sports accidents. Parents should be extra vigilant because this is an accident-prone day for your kids.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your home routine will change today. Small appliances might break down; minor breakages could occur. Domestic arguments could break out. Surprise company might drop by. You get the picture. Expect the unexpected.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is an accident-prone day for your sign so be very careful and mindful of everything you do. Avoid rash, impulsive judgments or saying something you will later regret. Be extra careful driving and watch out for bozos. (They’re always out there.)
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Surprises with your cash flow or your money scene are likely today. You might find money; you might lose money. Something out of the blue might catch you off-guard and make you misplace or break something. (“Oh no!”)
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your mind is very stimulated today, which is why you’re fascinated by everything. However, things around you are spinning so fast it’s also a bit nerve-wracking. Expect a brisk tempo, a busy schedule and a day full of spontaneous impulses.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a restless day for you. You have that feeling something is going to happen and you’re not sure what. It’s as if your Spidey sense is set to high alert. Unexpected discoveries could raise a few eyebrows today. Some things are changing rapidly!
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Friends or people in group situations might say something that you least expect today. Meetings could be canceled or plans changed. In fact, surprising news might cause you to alter some goals. Think before you speak to avoid regrets over knee-jerk reactions.
IF JANUARY 3 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Model/actress/maternal health advocate Liya Kebede (1978) shares your birthday today. You have a vivid imagination. You’re devoted to whatever you embrace. You believe in giving something everything you’ve got because you feel rewarded by giving service. You can also be highly persuasive and stubborn. (This sometimes draws criticism from others.) In business matters, you’re fair-minded and just. Your year ahead is the beginning of a fresh new cycle. Open any door!
