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 1:30 p.m. The new moon is exact at 12:44 p.m.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): The only new moon at the top of your chart for the whole year is taking place today. Since this is the beginning of the year, this is the perfect time for you to think about your life direction in general. Are you headed where you want to go?
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Today’s New Moon urges you to think about what further education or training you might get to help you at work. What further training or travel might beautifully enrich your life? Think about this.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Today’s New Moon is the only one all year urging you to get out of debt. How well do you handle shared property, insurance matters, inheritances and anything you own jointly with others? What can you do to improve?
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): The only New Moon opposite your sign all year is taking place today, which means this is the ideal day to ask yourself how you can improve your closest relationships. Would you like to have yourself as your partner or friend?
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a perfect day to ask yourself what you can do to improve your job, how you do your job, and even your attitude to your job. Similarly, what can you do to improve your health? Hmmm?
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In this busy world, we focus on work, then relaxing in front of TV. But what about expressing your creativity? This is also a good day to ask how you can improve your relationships with children.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Believe it or not, this is the best day of the entire year for you to think about what you can do to improve your relationships with family members as well as what you can do to improve where you live. These are important issues for you.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is an excellent day to critique your ability to communicate to others. Are you a good listener? Do you carefully read your e-mails? Do you do most of the talking? Try to observe your style of communicating to see how you might improve.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your attitude to anything will affect how it manifests in your life. This certainly applies to money. If you think money is the root of all evil, you won’t keep it for very long. Do you respect money? Do you see it as energy that makes things happen in the world? Think about this.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The only New Moon in your sign all year is taking place today. That’s why this is a good day to take a realistic look in the mirror and ask yourself what you can do to improve your appearance and create a better impression on your world. Try it.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a good day to delve deeper into your psyche and open a few doors so that you can find out what really makes you tick. If you hide your impulses, they will emerge when you least expect them and trip you up. Not a bad idea to do some psychological “cleaning.”
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Give some thought to your long-term goals today. How close are you to achieving what you want to do? Do you even know what your goals are? This is the best day of the year for you to think about where you want to be five years from now.
IF JANUARY 11 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Author Diana Gabaldon (1952) shares your birthday today. You’re a shrewd judge of character and very capable and trustworthy. People respect you. You have high morals and you walk your talk. Because you try to be objective and give honest feedback to others, people value your expert opinion. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new.
