ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions until 4:30 p.m. After that the Moon moves from Cancer into Leo.
◆ ARIES (March 21-April 19): Even though this is a loosey-goosey day with the Moon Alert (see above), it’s a fun-loving, creative day for Aries. Dabble in arts and crafts or any creative project you have on the go.
◆ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is the perfect day to kick back and relax at home. You’ll enjoy your privacy and just lying around doing nothing but noshing on good food and reading a book or watching TV.
◆ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll have a lot of fun today talking to everyone. Plus you’re busy trying to do everything, which means you’re overbooked. Don’t agree to anything important. Just enjoy schmoozing.
◆ CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your focus is on money, cash flow and financial matters today. (You’re conservative with your money. Not cheap; just frugal. There’s a difference.) But do be aware of the Moon Alert above when it comes to making important decisions.
◆ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The Moon is in your sign today, which makes you more emotional than other days. This is fine because honestly, you just want to have fun today. Expect shortages, minor delays and a vague inefficiency at work.
◆ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’re feeling low-key today. You probably want to work alone or behind the scenes because you feel you need a breather. Lately, your life has been very social because you’re trying to be all things to all people. It’s time to take time out for you.
◆ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’re keen to work hard now and accomplish a lot, but today you might meet with some obstacles. The main one is you don’t feel like working. (Ha!) You’d rather be somewhere else having fun. Enjoy schmoozing with female friends.
◆ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Tra-la, tra-la, it is to laugh. This is a hey, nonny nonny day. Enjoy romance, sports events, movies, the arts, playful times with kids and just plain old fun. But do be aware that bosses and VIPs are watching.
◆ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): This is the perfect day to play hooky. And hey, it’s Friday. Take a long lunch. Leave work early if you can. Do something different because you want a little adventure. Trust your creative ideas because you can easily think outside of the box.
◆ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be careful because your focus is on shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and anything you own jointly with others, including mortgages and loans. Pretty dry stuff. But today is a poor day to deal with important matters.
◆ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your mind is on close friends and partners today and you can have lots of fun with others, so enjoy yourself. This particular Moon Alert is very goofy. It’s poor for business but it’s great for creativity.
◆ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’re making a half-hearted attempt to get better organized today because you feel you should. There’s a guilty little impulse at play somewhere, right?
IF FEBRUARY 22 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Filmmaker Jonathan Demme (1944) shares your birthday today. You’re sensitive, imaginative and selfless to the point of self-sacrifice. You feel elevated if you can devote yourself to a worthy cause. Because of your idealism, you are patriotic and have a strong sense of duty. These qualities give you focus and dedication to whatever you pursue. In your year ahead, work hard to build or construct something because your rewards will soon follow.
