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 Pisces.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19) :You feel like withdrawing today, not because you’re despondent but because you want some privacy. If you do talk to others, you’ll want to communicate deeper feelings. Do note: relations with women could be challenging.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Contact with friends is important today. You might feel possessive of someone or even jealous if they pay more attention to someone else. This is also a good day to examine your overall goals and think about where you want to be in the next few years.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The details of your intimate and personal life might be on public display today. (Yikes!) With this in mind, be on your best behavior. This is not the day to have a hissy fit in the elevator with your lover. However, it’s a good day for PR and sales.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You feel a strong urge to break from your routine. You’ll enjoy any kind of travel or even mental journeys or study. Basically, you crave excitement and something different today. You might make new friends from foreign countries.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your emotions are rather intense today. You feel possessive about what you own. You want to hold on to familiar things. You might even want something that belongs to someone else. You certainly want to establish greater control in your life through material possessions.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Personal relationships are your focus today. This could be why you feel jealous or possessive. (Moi? Yes, you.) Confrontations with females will be intense but they might be positive — or not. Be aware of what you say and do.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You feel the need to offer your services to others today, which means you have to put your own needs second. This isn’t a big deal about self-denial, it’s just about helping someone. Guard against being hypercritical of others, which is so easy to do today.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have a strong need to just be yourself today. And why not? Relations with females will be smooth; in fact, your protective and nurturing instincts are aroused, so you will be very caring with children. (That’s because this Moon today makes you overprotective.)
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You need a little privacy today. Cocoon at home if you have a chance. Basically, childhood memories and private thoughts are on your mind and it would be nice to have some down time to process this. You might even feel lonely. (This passes quickly.)
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re keen to talk to others today. However, you don’t want superficial discussions about the weather, instead you want down-to-earth, gut-level communications. You want to tell it like it is. Be careful of reacting to something that someone says. Be cool.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) : It’s easy to identify with what you own today, which is why you won’t want to lend anything to anyone. Basically, you want to be surrounded by familiar things, especially from your past. You won’t even want to spend money. (Open your wallet — let a few moths out.)
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’re emotionally tuned-in today because your Spidey sense is heightened. However, you feel very giving to others even if, at the same time, you are also emotionally demanding. (It happens.) Try to see the other person’s point of view.
IF JANURARY 15 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Comedienne/actress Andrea Martin (1947) shares your birthday today. It’s curious but as a child you had heroes and as an adult, others view you as heroic (despite what you think). You are idealistic and rebellious. This combination often puts you at the helm of energy directed at correcting wrongs in society. You are also pleasure-loving. In the year ahead, work hard to build or construct something because your rewards will soon follow.
