ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 3:30 a.m. until 10:15 a.m. today. After that the Moon moves from Pisces into Aries.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): One of two things might occur today (or both). You might fall madly in love with your boss or someone in a position of authority. (We’re talking intense. The stuff of movies.) Or you might be asked to improve something and make it look better or run more smoothly.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Travel for pleasure will thrill you today. You feel a strong need to break free of your daily routine and grab more of life. Carpe diem! Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened, you will enjoy art galleries, museums, parks and beautiful places. You want a vacation.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a hot, heavy, sexy day. No question. However, sex isn’t everything. You can also attract money to you today. (Definitely.) Or you might benefit indirectly through your partner.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Love affairs and romantic relationships with others can flourish. You find it easy to express your affection for others in a clear, direct way. (Naughty, naughty, I saw that.) This is also a good day to mend broken fences with others.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can do something to improve your health today. Most likely, it will involve stopping doing something or cleaning out, such as perhaps going on a fast. You want to renounce bad habits and give up anything harmful so that you can be healthier and happier!
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a great day for fun, pleasure, entertaining diversions, social outings with others, sports events, playful times with children, vacation getaways and intimate sessions with lovers. There is no need to pretend to be what you are not. “I yam what I yam.”
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You have a strong drive to improve where you live today. Of course, you are very affected by your surroundings. Today, in particular, you want to get rid of what is nasty or offending. “Out with it!” You want to make everything more attractive and elegant.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re extremely persuasive today. Not only can you persuade others to do something, you will talk yourself into it as well. However, in addition, you might discover just how much love and beauty there is all around you. Who knew?
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You like to make money. Actually, you like to make a killing. Today you feel very passionate about a particular project that will, hopefully, boost your earnings. Ironically, some of you feel just as passionate about buying something today. “Gotta have it!”
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is a great day to be with others, or take a vacation, or just relax and enjoy yourself. But your penchant for fun and pleasure is actually quite intense. This means you’re going to go after what you want, even if it’s just a good table at a nice restaurant.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Secret love affairs are definitely on the menu for you this year. (Many Aquarians are kinda kinky.) Of course, kinky is simply from someone else’s point of view, isn’t it? Meanwhile, some of you are willing to sacrifice for the welfare of others today.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Friends can become lovers and lovers can become friends today. You feel very passionate about all your close relationships, especially groups to which you might belong. You might also feel a bit possessive. Well, we all do from time to time.
IF JANUARY 16 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Race-car driver/owner A. J. Foyt (1935) shares your birthday today. It’s important for you to feel that you have given your best. And you want acknowledgment for this; then this acknowledgment reinforces you so that you continue to your next goal. You are hard-working and diligent as you constantly seek bigger goals and bigger rewards. In your year ahead, a major change will take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2004.
