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 Libra.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is a fabulous day to schmooze! Meetings with others, classroom situations and casual get-togethers will be upbeat and enthusiastic. Now is the time to rally your forces! You feel positive about your future goals.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You have a strong ambition to achieve something today and you will very likely succeed. Dealings with foreign countries and large groups will be successful. The only downside is co-workers might be threatened by your enthusiasm and big ideas.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Travel plans excite you. In fact, any opportunity to throw yourself into creative, intellectual work will please you. Publishing, writing, learning and anything to do with higher education will be thrilling.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is an excellent day to divide or share something because you will probably be laughing all the way to the bank. Your sex drive is strongly stimulated so relationships with others will be passionate. You’re very assertive today!
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You won’t hesitate to defend your own best interests today, especially in discussion with partners and close friends. “We’ve got a live one here.” You feel feisty and energetic! In fact, your strong energy might be uplifting to others, even members of the general public.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can get a tremendous amount done at work today, especially if you work with others. Your charismatic enthusiasm will inspire others to give their best. Group meetings will be positive. Don’t hesitate to do your thing or speak up. Work-related travel will please you.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is a fun-loving, enthusiastic day! Romantic flirtations, playful activities with children, sports events, the theatre, and vacation plans are just some reasons you’ve got a big grin on your face. You’re very turned on today!
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Things are particularly active, maybe even hectic at home today. Visiting guests, renovations, or perhaps major cleaning will turn things temporarily upside down. Be patient with family members. However, on the whole, this is an upbeat day!
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’re convincing today — no question. That’s why this is a marvelous day for those of you who sell, promote, market, write, teach, act or drive for a living. Go forth and do that voodoo that you do so well by dazzling others with your words.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Something to do with your cash flow scene looks particularly positive today! Either you’re enthusiastic about moneymaking ideas or you have received a nice windfall. This is also why some of you will be spending money big time today.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a fabulous day for you! Your energy is strong, you feel happy and benevolent to all. You feel physically well toned. That’s why your plans are optimistic and positive. Great day for new business activity or introducing new ideas to others.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Behind-the-scenes activities will be a source of joy for you today. (Could this be a mind-boggling secret love affair?) It could be that you are practicing a random act of kindness for someone and being very low-key about it. Or you might be hatching plans that excite you. Whatever the case, your enthusiasm for what you’re doing will ensure its success.
IF JANUARY 4 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Singer Michael Stipe (1960) shares your birthday today. You have a fine mind for solving problems and learning new techniques. You grasp concepts, but at the same time, you’re very practical. Many of you like to collect things both physical and data. You’re very organized and prefer to have whatever you want within hand’s reach. In the coming year, partnerships and close friendships will be your strong focus.
