ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 4 p.m. today. The Moon is in Aquarius.
◆Aries (March 21-April 19): You’re starting to appreciate how you can best use the resources of others to your own advantage. These resources might not necessarily be owned by others, they might be shared between you and someone else. Sensible compromise is the answer.
◆Taurus (April 20-May 20): Lately, you have been motivated, even driven, to improve partnerships. You know that this is inevitable and if they don’t improve, they will begin to disintegrate. Do whatever in your power you can do to be an agent of change in a positive way.
◆Gemini (May 21-June 20): Give serious thought to your health and how you can improve it. No matter what your age, are you as optimally healthy as you can be? Think about your weight, your body tone, your eating habits, your exercise regime — all of it. Focus on improvements, bit by bit: One per cent a month.
◆Cancer (June 21-July 22): Powerful changes are taking place with your children and romance. Although these changes could be sobering or involve increased responsibilities, ultimately, they will be changes for the better. Furthermore, these changes will be long-lasting.
◆Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You have striven to make improvements to your home through renovations, residential moves and repairs. This is essential to your peace of mind because you want a solid home base to rely on. And you’re right. Do whatever you can.
◆Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Relationships with siblings, relatives and daily contacts are important because they affect your daily life. Some of you might be contemplating a major change, but all of you are looking for better ways to communicate with your everyday world. Good.
◆Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Clever Librans are spotting new sources of income and new ways to make money, either with a new job or something different on the side. Be resourceful. You can be successful because very soon all kinds of opportunities will open up to you during the next 18 months.
◆Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is an appropriate time for you to be thinking about whatever you can do to improve your health, your body and your image in the world. In fact, by extension, you can also improve your relationships. Life is real — it ain’t a dress rehearsal.
◆Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): As you enter a phase of your life where you will be letting go of things and downsizing, think about how you can do this gracefully so that you don’t experience loss. The letting go is simply a lightening of your load. You can do this. (Freedom is a survival issue for you.)
◆Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Relations with older friends are undergoing major changes now. Ultimately, these changes will affect your long-term goals and how you choose to achieve them. Fear not. These changes are for the better because, whatever the result is, it will be superior.
◆Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a time of harvest for you when your cherished dreams are coming true. However, it’s also a time where some of you will let go of what is not working and focus on what is, even if it takes you in a new direction. Be prepared to do this.
◆Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Give serious thought to everything you do to prepare yourself so that you are performance-ready in a few years when career options are excellent. It will be a time of graduation, promotions, accolades — whatever. But you do want to be primed for it, don’t you?
