ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 5:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. today. After that the moon moves from Gemini into Cancer.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’re keen to talk to others today. You want to enlighten people about something. That’s just fine. This is a great day to schmooze and enjoy the company of neighbors, relatives and siblings. However, don’t sign anything important because it’s an iffy day.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your focus is on cash flow and money issues today. Therefore, check the Mood Alert above because this is a poor day for major expenditures. Just buy food. If you have money-making ideas, write them down and postpone acting on them until tomorrow.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional than usual. You feel enthusiastic and upbeat and eager to enjoy the company of others. This is a great day to schmooze and have fun. However, it’s a poor day for important business and shopping.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You might want to withdraw today and just ponder your navel. Relax if you can. Many of you will work alone or behind the scenes or just take it easy. Relations with partners and close friends are warm and friendly, despite disputes about shared property.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is an excellent day to enjoy the company of others, especially females. Talk to others about your hopes and dreams for the future because their feedback could definitely help you. But don’t act on any decisions. Not today.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a loosey-goosey day and it might surprise you to know that private details about your personal life might be rather public. (What’s with that?) Bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police might be privy to these details. Keep a low profile if you can.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Because you’re eager for adventure, do something different. Be a tourist in your own city. Go someplace you’ve never been before. Talk to people from other backgrounds and learn more about the world. Do whatever you can to broaden your experience of life.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might feel rather intense about things (more than usual). Discussions about inheritances, shared property or anything you share jointly with others might arise. If so, postpone decisions about these matters until tomorrow.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Because the moon is opposite your sign today, you will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. This simply requires a little compromise, no big deal. In two weeks, when the moon is in your own sign, others will have to go more than halfway.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): With Venus in your sign now you feel attractive and charming — and you are. Diplomacy comes easily to you now. Although this is a good time to shop for wardrobe items, don’t do this today. Wait until tomorrow. Putter around your job or your home.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is definitely a playful day and you are in the mood to take advantage of it. Romance, love affairs, movies, the theater, the arts, sports events and playful times with children will all delight. Do something where you can express your creative talents.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Focus on home and family. Discussions with a parent could be significant. This is also a good day to withdraw from the busy-ness of life and just relax or do whatever you can to replenish yourself. Childhood memories are bubbling to the surface of your mind.
IF JANUARY 23 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Humphrey Bogart (1899-1957) shares your birthday today. You have distinctive qualities that set you apart from others. (It could be your voice or the way you move that makes you memorable.) Aside from that, you exude an image of moral strength. You are also eccentric. You’re aware, at all times, of the persona that you project. In the year ahead, an important decision will arise. Choose wisely.
