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 Gemini.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is a great day to propose your ideas to groups or make a class presentation. Even a casual conversation with others will be unusually upbeat. In fact, whatever you do could lead to friendships or a chance to take your life in a new direction.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Any dialogue with an authority figure today (boss, parent, teacher, VIP or the police) will go extremely well. You exude confidence and enthusiasm and are also open to change and new ideas. People see you as innovative and full of positive energy. (Not too shabby.) Use this to your advantage.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Unexpected opportunities to travel as well as explore publishing, higher education, medicine and the law might fall in your lap today. If so, act quickly because this window of opportunity is brief. You feel energized by big ideas that are swirling around you.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep your pockets open because surprise gifts, goodies and favors from others might come your way today. This is an excellent day to discuss how to share an inheritance or divide something because you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank. Lookin’ good!
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Relations with partners and close friends will be unusually warm and friendly. Later in the day, something might surprise you or you might be introduced to someone who is a real character. This is a good day to deal with members of the general public.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Work-related travel will be a positive experience today. The introduction of new technology or some kind of gizmo at work is also likely, especially later in the day. You feel vigorous, excited and healthy today. Great day to get stuff done!
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The arts will flourish today! Unexpected flirtations and surprise invitations to events or a sudden holiday might really make your day. This is an enthusiastic, upbeat day, especially for sports. Ditto for financial speculation. Good day to make vacation plans online.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Act on your big ideas about repairs to where you live or repairs to family relationships. Spontaneous get-togethers at home might take place. You might also buy something high-tech for where you live. Family members might have a surprise for you.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Relations with siblings, relatives and neighbors will be unusually upbeat. This is a great day to sign contracts or enter into negotiations. Your mind is sharp but mostly your success is due to positive thinking.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is a great day for business and commerce. Your efforts can definitely lead to a boost in your earnings or perhaps even a better job. Work-related travel and dealing with foreign countries is likely.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a wonderful day for making plans for the future and also for creating organizational systems and schmoozing with others. Buying and selling or wrapping up a deal is blessed.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You will excel at any kind of study today, especially if you’re working alone or behind the scenes. The study of law, jurisprudence or anything related to higher education, religion and philosophy will appeal to you. Jump on publishing opportunities.
IF JANUARY 22 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Epic silent film director D. W. Griffith (1875-1948) shares your birthday today. You are dramatic, powerful and extremely emotional. You live life passionately! You love to explore new ideas. You understand how to tap into the emotions of others. You are imaginative and impulsive, although you often hide your spontaneous nature from the public. In the year ahead, partnerships and close friendships will be your primary focus.
