ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 5 a.m., we have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The Moon is in Cancer.
◆ ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’re very selfless today. You might be in a situation where you won’t hesitate to put the needs and wants of others before your own because it feels like it’s the right thing to do.
◆ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In all group situations, you’ll take a sympathetic, idealistic approach. This will be especially obvious if you are working on behalf of someone else or you’re involved in a charitable group.
◆ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Relations with authority figures might be confusing today. You’re not sure if you should give in or if you should stand your ground. To complicate things further, you might not be clear about what others expect of you. Frustrating, indeed!
◆ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your idealism is aroused. Not only that, you have a heightened appreciation of beauty. You’re attracted not only to beautiful places today but also to beautiful ideas. Talk to others about politics, religion and philosophy
◆ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you have to share or divide something today with someone else, you’ll be more than fair. (Of course, you’re a generous sign by nature.) But today, you feel sympathetic to the needs of others.
◆ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Close relationships and partnerships might be confusing. (Let’s face it, they’ve been confusing for some time now.) In part, you’re not sure what you want. But you’re also not sure where someone is coming from.
◆ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you have to defend yourself at work today, you might not do a good job of it. It’s as if you don’t have a strong sense of yourself or you don’t want to make too much of a fuss. But you have rights, too; plus others are watching you.
◆ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Romance has been confusing. That’s because your ideals are causing you to have unrealistic expectations. In one way, yes, you are a realist. But you’re also intense and so black-and-white, which means when you veer off course — you’re gone!
◆ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You feel sympathetic to the needs of a family member today. Or possibly, you are the person seeking sympathy from others. Either way, it’s all good because people feel mutually sympathetic.
◆ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Try to be clear in all your conversations with others today. Nevertheless, you’ll find yourself daydreaming and lost in fantasies because your mind keeps drifting. On the upside, it’s easy to think in pictures, isn’t it?
◆ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You might kid yourself about financial matters today. You might think things are rosier than they really are or you might believe that wishing will make it so. Well, at times this actually works. But today, self-deception is classic.
◆ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): With Mars in your sign you’re determined, focused and aggressive. However, with the Sun and Neptune lined up in your sign, you’re indecisive. Suffice to say you are filled with contradictions today.
IF FEBRUARY 20 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Singer Rihanna (1988) shares your birthday today. You are quietly cooperative and extremely perceptive. You notice the world around you. In fact, if possible, you want to pass on the impressions you have to others. You have an excellent memory and strength of personality so that others will listen to your ideas. Your year ahead is the beginning of a fresh, new cycle. Open any door.
