ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution: Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 6:30 a.m. today. The Moon is in Capricorn.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is curious day. You have to avoid making important decisions; nevertheless, this is a good day for planning and getting information that could impact your life direction in general.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Although this is not a good day to book a trip or initiate anything, it’s an excellent day to study or make plans about future travel. You’re very eager to learn something new and expand your horizons.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a tricky day. The reason it is tricky is it’s an excellent day to make financial plans about wills, inheritances, taxes, debt and anything you own jointly with others, including shared property.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Because the Moon is opposite your sign today, you will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. This is no big deal. In two weeks, when the Moon is in your sign, people will have to go more than halfway when dealing with you.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a practical day at work where you can ponder long-range plans. However, don’t act on any of your decisions. Expect shortages and delays. Just ruminate and cogitate. Let your ideas flow like dominoes.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Just attend to routine work today and business as usual. You want to get a lot done because you feel in a practical mood. Your concentration will be decent and your focus on detail will be very good. Nevertheless, distrust spontaneous decisions.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is good day to strategize situations that are related to sports or anything to do with the care and education of children. Couples might want to discuss how to share expenses or the division of labor.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is a good day to putter at home and get better organized. Decide what to keep and what to recycle, throw out or give away. Do whatever you can to make yourself feel more on top of your scene.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In one way, this is a good day to strategize your cash flow or think about how to budget your money. You might also think about future job possibilities. However, don’t act on these decisions, just think about them.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The Moon is in your sign today, which can make you a bit more emotional than usual. This can also make you a bit luckier than usual. Nevertheless, the Moon is void of course, which means you can’t really trust your gut instincts.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Behind-the-scenes work or research of any kind will go extremely well today because you have focus, concentration and you’re interested in practical results. Nevertheless, don’t try to move mountains.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A discussion with someone older (probably female) might influence you to change your goals. You’re in a practical frame of mind and you will welcome advice that comes your way. Nevertheless, don’t act on anything you learn today. Just think about it.
