ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 1 a.m. until 6 p.m. After that, the Moon moves from Cancer into Leo.
IF NOV. 22 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Scarlett Johansson (1984) shares your birthday. You need the freedom to be who you are and go where you want. You’re active and dynamic and surprisingly indifferent to the opinions of others. (Part of being free.) You are tireless in your pursuit of a life that stimulates you. You don’t rest on your laurels. You work hard to constantly prove yourself. This year an important decision will arise. Choose wisely.

◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Because you find it easy to think outside of the box, you can be wonderfully creative. Plus, you’re the artisan of the zodiac. (You will try anything with your hands — at least once.) Your Muse is with you today — take advantage of this.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is a good day to cocoon at home. Be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert above. However, during a Moon Alert, your creative vibes are expanded because you’re willing to visualize and entertain new ideas and ways of thinking. Use this.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In discussions with others, be careful you don’t commit to anything important during the Moon Alert time. (See above.) Just do your homework and get meaningful data. Look at things from all angles but wait until the Moon Alert is over before you decide.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): A word of warning: The Moon today can affect your financial decisions. Do not shop for anything other than food during this time. Postpone important money decisions. You can’t trust your impulses. Wait until it’s over.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Today the Moon is in your sign but it is a Moon Alert for most of the day. That means this is a goofy, playful, fun-loving day, but a poor day to make major purchases or important decisions. Be aware of this. Who wants to end up with regrets or egg on their face?
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Today your best option is to work alone or work behind the scenes. Don’t call attention to yourself until after the Moon Alert is over. (See above.) You’re full of energy because Mars is in your sign. Nevertheless, don’t plunge blindly into a new situation. Wait.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is good day to schmooze with others, especially female friends. You’ll enjoy a casual, free-for-all conversation. Don’t take anything too seriously but do encourage creative association and building ideas.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Tread carefully. People in authority will notice you because personal details about your private life might be public. (Yikes.) If this happens, be cautious in your reaction. Most of today is a Moon Alert, which means you should avoid important decisions and responses.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You want to get away from all this. You want to escape somewhere exciting. However, a good portion of today is a Moon Alert, which means you must postpone important decisions, including making plane reservations and hotel bookings.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Although it’s fine to get data about red-tape issues related to taxes, debt, insurance, inheritances and shared property — make no important decisions about these matters until the Moon Alert is over. You’ll be doing yourself a favor. Just mull things over and carry on — business as usual.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Conversations with partners and close friends will be enjoyable and a bit all over the map. It will be tough to decide what to do, even socially, but this can still be a fun-loving day. Once the Moon Alert is over, everyone will go back to work.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It might be hard to be efficient and productive for most of today because of the Moon Alert, which makes things fuzzy as well as create delays. It’s also an unrealistic time, which means it’s a poor time to make important decisions, especially spontaneous ones. Forewarned is forearmed.
