ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution: Avoid shopping or making important decisions all day today. The Moon is in Sagittarius.
◆Aries (March 21-April 19): This is a positive, successful day! You feel happy and full of positive feelings and these positive feelings are the root of your success. (Success is often that simple.) You’ll enjoy talking to everyone today. Hey, get out and schmooze!
◆Taurus (April 20-May 20): You feel philanthropic and helpful today, which is why you will put the wants and needs of others before your own. You will see the direct benefit of your help and, in addition, see how good you feel helping others. Call this a “spread-the-joy” day.
◆Gemini (May 21-June 20): Examine your dreams and ideals. You will feel a strong contentment because you appreciate what you’ve done. You won’t be hard on yourself just as you aren’t hard on anyone else. What you want to see is what is potentially possible and how to go for it.
◆Cancer (June 21-July 22): It’s easy to get along with authority figures today. Don’t hesitate to give your opinions about things to people in charge (including parents) because they will be impressed with you. You respect those with more experience and want to bounce ideas off of them so that you might learn more. (Smart.)
◆Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Your idealism is aroused today along with your appreciation of beauty. Travel anywhere you can because you will delight in the creations of others, especially different cultures. The customs and practices of other people will intrigue you. So much to learn!
◆Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is an excellent day to ask for a loan or mortgage or to divide an inheritance or figure out how to share something. Almost certainly, you can benefit from the wealth and resources of others. Keep smiling and keep your pockets open.

◆Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is a wonderful day to entertain at home so invite the gang over for a barbeque or pizza and beer. This is also an excellent day to explore real-estate deals. Groups that meet at your home to share ideas will be successful events.
◆Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s true what they say about the power of positive thinking. It works! Today is a good example. You enjoy the company of others and are happy to respect people in authority. You’re keen to learn and, at the same time, happy to enlighten others.
◆Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Business and commerce are blessed today. Trust your money-making ideas because they could lead to future profits or boost your salary.

If APRIL 1 is Your Birthday: Television host/political commentator/author Rachel Maddow (1973) shares your birthday. You are hard-working and highly disciplined, which is why you master your craft. You’re sincere about pursuing your goals. You’re a perfectionist about what you do and you are often self-educated. You are driven to succeed. In the year ahead, a major change might take place, perhaps something as significant as whatever occurred around 2004.
