ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Taurus.
IF DEC. 13 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Christopher Plummer (1929) shares your birthday. You are a perfectionist. You see both the broad strokes and the details. You are also insightful, thoughtful and caring. You understand the human condition. You take a long-range view of things and are faithful to your goals. Perseverance is one of your major strengths. In the year ahead, a major change might take place, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2005.

◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): By nature, you are a resourceful person. (Think what you can do with your hands.) Today, however, you will turn your resourceful energy into attracting new income streams, new jobs or new ways of earning money. Or perhaps you see a new use for something you own?
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is a good day to take a realistic look in the mirror and ask yourself what you can do to create a better impression in your world. Study your style of dress, your hair, whatever combines to create the impression you put out there on a daily basis. Is there room for improvement?
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Quiet research on behind-the-scenes work might make a difference to discussions about shared property or anything you own jointly with others. You might come up with improved methods for taking a new approach to things.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Group discussions might reveal better ways of doing something, especially in charitable or nonprofit organizations. Someone powerful might have input or they might encourage your input. Whatever happens might cause you to rethink your long-term goals.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have the ability to do something that changes the way people in authority view you. This might happen voluntarily or even by accident. Hopefully, it will be flattering and improve the image you create with people in power. You might also attract a powerful boss to you.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Discussions about politics, religion, metaphysics and philosophical issues will be intense. Either you will try to persuade others to agree with you, or others will try to persuade you to agree with them. Be careful. Listen to all sides.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You might see a way to improve your situation regarding debt, taxes, inheritances, insurance matters and shared property. If this is the case, don’t be pushy with your point of view, but do be clear. You don’t want to increase opposition to you.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You are passionate and intense by nature. Today, your ruler Pluto dances with the Moon, which is opposite your sign. This makes you want to improve your closest relationships or perhaps try to improve your partner or friend. You’re on shaky ground here and you know it.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Look for ways to cut costs and introduce reforms and improvements at work. It is possible. Similarly, some of you will see ways to improve your health or your body through exercise and diet. (A balanced diet is not a cookie in each hand.)
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This can be a productive day for creative people or anyone working not only in the arts but also in the entertainment world, show business and the hospitality industry. Likewise, people involved in sports and working with children can see ways to make improvements.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look around where you live and identify things you no longer need or use. Set these things aside so you can recycle, sell or give them away. Look for ways to improve your home, especially in areas related to bathrooms, plumbing, the laundry, garbage and recycling. Streamline your life by lightening up your load in an efficient way.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have no trouble persuading other people to agree with you because you’re unusually convincing. That’s why this is a strong day for those of you who write, edit, act, teach, sell or market for a living.
