ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 9 a.m., we have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The Moon is in Pisces.
IF SEPT. 17 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Kyle Chandler (1965) shares your birthday. You succeed because you are persevering and persistent. Obstacles or delays do not deter you. You are unstoppable. You’re also physically tough, logical and practical. People know you’re reliable and that you get the job done. (In addition, you have a quirky sense of humor.) This year a major change might take place, perhaps something as significant as what occurred around 2004.

◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Conversations with others will be lively and dynamic today. You’re excited about something and so are they! (Enthusiasm is so contagious.) Cook up great plans for vacations, parties and future dates. Make reservations!
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is a busy, exciting day at work (or doing whatever). You easily persuade others to go along with your plans. You might run errands or take a short trip. You’re hands-on in your approach to things and delegating like mad.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a positive, upbeat and vibrant day because your ruler Mercury (talk, talk, talk) is in league with fiery Mars. (This doesn’t mean that you will yell, yell, yell, but close to it!) You feel prankish and playful, which is why you’ll enjoy games and teasing. Take time today for fun. Enjoy the arts.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Family discussions will be lively today. You can persuade others to go along with your plans. Let’s face it, you can outlast them. (Years ago, a Harvard study showed that the person who did the most talking won the argument.) Good day to tackle repairs and hands-on tasks at home.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’re so convincing today! This is a great day for those of you in sales, marketing, teaching, acting, editing and writing. You mean what you say and you say what you mean. And you say it so colorfully!
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have excellent money-making ideas. Don’t dismiss them out of hand. They might be worth running up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes. Talk to others about your ideas because you can sell through your words today. “It slices, it dices, it cuts through leather!”
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is a busy day for you. You’re juggling a lot of balls in the air, plus you’re thinking hard about how you can advance any project you’re involved in. You’re quick to take the initiative and perhaps even take over a project. “I’m on it!”
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Research and behind-the-scenes work will be interesting and rewarding. Dig deep for what you seek because you will find it out of sheer enthusiasm and perseverance, if nothing else. It’s naked ambition that drives you now.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You feel like a coach delegating to the team. You’re up for action and ready to talk to everyone. People will respond to you because you are enthusiastic and seem to believe what you say. (That’s all it takes.) Ah yes, the power of confidence! And today — you’ve got it.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re keen to promote your own agenda, but less keen to work for others simply because you want to run your own show. You’re convincing, that’s for sure. However, you’re also working harder than others can handle. Don’t be judgmental about them. (They’re just lazy.)
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Excellent day to make travel plans and explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. If you have to write a paper, teach or do anything related to higher education, you’ll be dynamite. Enjoy lively discussions about politics, religion and philosophy.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is a good day to stand up for your fair share of things. If you have to discuss how to divide something or deal with inheritances and matters related to shared property, you won’t let yourself down because you feel feisty, mentally energetic and brave. Yes!
