ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 7 a.m. until 5:45 p.m. After that, the Moon moves from Cancer into Leo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): For the next two weeks, your curiosity about everything will be piqued. You want to know! Short trips, group discussions and chances to meet new people will stimulate you. It’s a great time to converse with others. Your daily pace will be busy.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): For the next several weeks, Mercury is traveling through your House of Money. (Yes, you can talk about money but you might not get your hands on it.) You’ll be more concerned with business and studying ways to earn money. Ka-ching!
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The planet Mercury enters your sign where it will stay for several weeks making you mentally active and talkative. Yada yada yada. Guard against speaking and acting too quickly, without thinking. You will be a bit wound up with a busy mind and schedule.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Enjoy being by yourself in the next few weeks because you want to withdraw for some reason. You might want to go off by yourself to study or contemplate. Actually, the next few weeks are also a great time for research. Do your Walden Pond thang.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Because you’ll be thinking more about your goals and expectations in the next few weeks, you might find yourself examining your objectives and values. Before you know where you want to go, you have to know what you want, right?
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In the next few weeks, focus on your life direction and professional plans. You might even want to take a course or sign up for further training that will promote your career. This is also a good time to talk to bosses and superiors about promotions.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll enjoy study plus reading and writing in the next several weeks because your desire to learn and expand your world will be strong. This is because your curiosity about life in general is growing. Good time to travel and talk to people from other countries.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Something will prompt some pretty deep thinking on your part in the next few weeks about the big issues: life, death, how long do we have to live? At a more mundane level, you’ll be concerned with taxes, debt, inheritances and shared property.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The next two weeks are the perfect opportunity to clarify things with others, especially partners and close friends. You will be able to have more objectivity because you will be a bit detached from everything. This is also a good window of time to sign contracts.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): All kinds of mental work will be favored for the next few weeks because your ability to pay attention to detail and handle routine work will be excellent. Furthermore, you will take pride in whatever you do because you want to be perfect.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A playful, prankish time ahead (for about two-to-three weeks) promises you fun and games. You will seek out all forms of amusement, including saucy flirtations. Enjoy sports, the arts and playful times with children. After all —life is short (and fat).
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get ready to tackle some home repairs in the next few weeks. Family conversations might be significant. However, you will also have a desire to withdraw in a peaceful way to take stock of your life. (Just how many pair of shoes do I have?)
If MAY 15 is Your Birthday: Actor/writer Chazz Palminteri (1946) shares your birthday today. You have a fabulous imagination and are very creative. However, you don’t care about drawing attention to yourself. Even though you are well liked, you are often a loner, sometimes seeking out simple, ordinary jobs. (Of course, your own hobbies and interests are fascinating.) Good news: Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
