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 Aries.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can really impress your boss or any authority figure today because they see that you care about what you’re doing and you’re trying to do it the right way. They also see that you are giving your best effort to something. I say milk this for all it’s worth.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is the perfect day to make long-range travel plans. It’s also a great day to study and buckle down and learn something or make sense out of your thesis. It’s a great day for writing and getting things done with publishing, the media, medicine and the law.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Roll up your sleeves and tackle red-tape details concerning wills, inheritances, estates, taxes, debt and all that stuff you like to avoid. Today you won’t mind doing it. (Would I kid you?) You will love yourself later for getting some of this out of the way.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Discussions with others will focus on long-range planning and how to properly share things, perhaps the division of labor or how to divide expenses. Some of you will develop a crush on someone older or someone of an age difference. It’s a sensible day, sort of.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is an excellent day for productivity at work because you’re ready to put duties and obligations ahead of pleasure. You see what needs to be done and you’re willing to do it. It’s a particularly good day for business affairs as well as taking care of hygiene and health needs.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Romance with someone older or of an age difference is likely because you seem to be attracted to someone who is steady and established. Even friendships of an age difference might begin today.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Give serious thought to how you can make repairs at home or make improvements to where you live, especially improvements that make things look more attractive. (The best.) Discussions with an older family member can also benefit you. (Especially if they’re rich.)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You feel rather wise today. This is why your discussions with others, especially with siblings and relatives, will be tempered by common sense and sober seriousness. The reality of things is important to you today. Good day for mental work.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): This is a wonderful day for business and commerce. (Music to your ears.) Hard work will be gratifying, especially because you see it could lead to financial benefits. Whatever you do today will be for the long haul. Natch.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is the perfect day to think about the responsibilities you have with your closest relationships. What do others expect of you? What do you expect of them? You feel fair-minded but serious. You want realistic answers to minimize future problems.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Research of any kind will go extremely well today because you have the patience, endurance, and necessary concentration to find what you’re looking for. Nothing will be too much trouble. In fact, this work will give you a sense of satisfaction.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Friendship with someone older can be helpful to you today. You might impress someone older in a group situation or you might even develop a crush on them. Discussions with others might affect your goals. It’s a sensible, pleasant day and one that can benefit you.
IF JANUARY 17 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Zooey Deschannel (1980) shares your birthday today. You are powerfully direct and know how to forcefully state your case. You are also independent. You have a commanding presence and can easily dominate any situation. You display discipline and self-control and concern about your achievements. Yet, you can be playful! You will enjoy your year ahead, which is social, fun-loving and beneficial for relationships.
