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 8:15 p.m. The Moon is in Sagittarius.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Yesterday is over and today is a fresh day. You’re up for adventure and full of bright, new ideas. Sudden opportunities to travel or explore new studies or get further training or meet people from other backgrounds and different cultures will spice up your day.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Surprise gifts, goodies and favors from others might come your way today. Something unexpected concerning shared property, taxes, debt or inheritances could occur. Quite likely, you will be financially blessed or come out ahead in some way. It looks good.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Others will probably make unlikely or unexpected suggestions today and you might have to just go along for the ride. Consider this a fun detour. And remember: happiness is being able to enjoy the scenery on a detour, right?
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your daily routine will be interrupted at work today perhaps because of computer crashes, new staff, changed meetings, or the introduction of high-tech equipment. It’s not a boring day. Furthermore, expect some laughs and upbeat conversations.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Surprise flirtations might make your day. (It always does.) Unexpected invitations to movies, sports or social occasions will please you. However, this is a mildly accident-prone day for your kids so do be vigilant. Be spontaneous!
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Something to do with your home routine will be a little different today. Small appliances could break down or minor breakages could occur. Surprise company might appear at your door. Or you could be pleased with new high-tech toys or modern art.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is a mildly accident-prone day for you, so pay attention to everything you say and do. Expect to meet new people and see new places. Clever new ideas are bubbling in your brain because it’s easy for you to think out-of-the-box today.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Opportunities to earn money or boost your earnings or get a different job might fall in your lap today. Someone might give you a gift or, in turn, you might buy something impulsively and be really thrilled with your purchase. (Modern art and electronics will appeal.)
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You crave a little excitement today, admit it. That’s why you will jump at anything that is an escape from your ho-hum routine. You’re also open to making changes and improvements in your life and the world around you. Do expect a few detours.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You feel restless today. You might know why or you might not know why — but it really doesn’t matter, does it? Perhaps this is an excited restlessness, like the anticipation of something. Or it could be a vague uneasiness. Relax.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A female acquaintance, especially in a group situation, might really surprise you in some way today. In fact, the input from someone could cause you to change your goals. Expect to meet unusual characters today, probably female.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be aware that some personal details of your private life might suddenly be public today, especially in the eyes of authority figures and bosses. Yikes! (Check your zipper.) However, this is basically an interesting day full of stimulating changes and unexpected turns.
IF JANUARY 8 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Singer/actor Elvis Presley (1935-1977) shares your birthday today. You have the uncanny ability to burst on the scene making a huge impression on people. You definitely stand out, often because you take saucy chances and push the sides of the envelope. You exude self-confidence (whether you have it or not) and you push yourself to the limits. Expect a lovely, social year ahead in which all relationships will improve. Enjoy!
