ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear today to do business and make important decisions. The Moon is in Leo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is definitely a day to have fun. Make a note of this. (I also think you should flirt a little, no matter how old you are.) Today is full of impulsive, quixotic opportunities for amusements, the arts, sports and, of course, romance!
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You might buy high-tech toys for your home or family. You might also impulsively entertain at home. Invite the gang over for pizza and beer or salade nicoise and a nice rose. What you impulsively do to please others will turn out to be delightful.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Enjoy encountering new faces and having impromptu conversations with interesting people today because this can happen. Just be open to it. You might meet a real character in passing or you might meet someone who in time becomes a good friend.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep an eye on your money because you will impulsively spend today, especially on beautiful things and entertaining diversions. Mind you, this is the perfect day to do this. Nevertheless, do know what’s happening with your cash flow and keep an eye and your possessions.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get out there and make something happen because you crave emotional excitement today. Sneak away from routine. Spend this day doing something different and meeting fascinating people. A friend could become a lover and certainly, you can make new friends.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You feel impulsive and playful today just because you do. It’s a feeling deep within that you probably woke up with this morning. Observe your surroundings and the people in your world because something will fascinate you or be worth watching.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You might meet new people through partners, friends or groups. You’re introducing people to each other and they’re introducing you to their friends. Be ready to jump on opportunities to travel or explore publishing, the media, medicine and the law.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Relations with bosses, parents and people in authority will hold a few surprises today (hopefully, pleasant ones). Romance with your boss might develop. Others might suddenly appeal to you for your creative input or help in artistic matters. It’s a feel-good day!
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sudden opportunities to travel might drop in your lap today. Similarly, a chance to take a course or learn something new might come along. You might be introduced to someone from another culture or a different country. If so, this will please you. (Maybe even seductively so.)
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can benefit from the wealth and resources of others today. Perhaps someone will give you a gift or do a favor for you. If so, it will surprise you and be something out of the blue. (“For me?”) Good day to ask for money or a mortgage or loan.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a great day to schmooze with others — friends, partners and members of the general public. You feel charming, witty and, because you’re light on your feet, you will go with the flow if someone suggests something exciting, new and different.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There could be an introduction of high-tech equipment where you work today. Or you might meet a new staff member who is unusual. Something pleasant and unexpected will occur and, of course, your daily routine will be interrupted. (That’s a given.)
If MAY 16 is Your Birthday: Actor Pierce Brosnan (1953) shares your birthday today. You can be humble and unassuming or flamboyant. It depends on your mood. Nevertheless, you are considered eccentric because you are not afraid to be natural and uninhibited. Generally, you are soft-spoken and appear composed and confident. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new.
