ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear today to do business (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions until 5 p.m. The Moon is in Libra.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Because the Moon is opposite your sign today, you will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. This is no big deal. It just requires a little tolerance and compromise, which you can do. Be magnanimous.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Set aside some time today to get better organized because you’ll love yourself later for having done something. Every little bit helps. Drip, drip, drip and soon the pail is full. (It’s surprising how much little things can make a difference — like someone gives you a check for $5,000.)
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a playful, fun-loving day. The Moon is in your fellow Air sign, which bodes well for you. Furthermore, its dance with fair Venus promotes romance, warm relationships with others, an appreciation of the arts and a chance to earn money. Voila!
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Hunker down at home today if you can. If you can’t, you will still seek out ways to cocoon or buffer yourself from the business of the world. Conversations with family members could be significant.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have a need to talk to others today. Get out and schmooze a bit. In particular, you will enjoy talking to siblings, neighbors and relatives. You don’t want to chat about superficial stuff, you want to get down to the nitty-gritty.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You identify strongly with your possessions today. This could be why you don’t want to lend something to someone or why you are busy cleaning and maintaining things. We all get possessive about our things from time to time.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The Moon is in your sign today, which makes you a bit more emotional than usual. However, it will also tend to attract good luck to you. (This is minor; nevertheless, it is there.) Don’t bet the farm on anything.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You would prefer to hide behind the scenes or cocoon somewhere because you feel a strong need for privacy today. You’re not depressed; you just want some peace and quiet. You might also need the time to hatch a few plans.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A conversation with a female could be significant today. In fact, you might feel unusually protective to someone or certainly supportive. If this person is friendly with someone else you might be jealous. Good day to examine your overall goals as well.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Very likely, some personal details about your private life will be public today, especially in the eyes of parents, bosses, the police and VIPs. You might also want to help someone you know through work. It’s a good day for PR.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Do something different today because you’re hungry for adventure and you want to learn something new. At the very least, take a different route traveling to or from somewhere. Read something different. Try an ethnic restaurant. Shake it up a little.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take care of loose details about inheritances, loans, debt, taxes and shared property. Roll up your sleeves and alot one hour to getting rid of some of the stuff so that it can no longer nag you in the deep recesses of your Piscean subconscious. (This kind of stuff can really get you where you live.)
IF JANUARY 5 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Big band leader Dal Richards (1918) shares your birthday today. You are philosophically inquiring. You look for the meaning behind trends in history and society. You also have an urge to identify or prove things. You’re idealistic and practical. You’re courageous and willing to take a stance about your beliefs despite the criticism of others. You find your work gratifying. In the year ahead, an important decision must be made. Choose wisely.
