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 Cancer.
IF DEC. 18 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Film director Steven Spielberg (1946) shares your birthday. You have tenacity and persistence. You’re not a quitter. When you look at things, you are a visionary with long-range goals. In other words, you’re in it for the long haul. Because you have many complex ideas, you need the freedom and space to pursue them. Your year ahead is the beginning of a fresh, new cycle. Open any door!

◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Intense exchanges with family members, especially female relatives, are highly possible. But why even go there? Domestic tension is such a drag. And it’s bad for your health and everyone else’s health as well. Instead, use this energy to get rid of what you don’t need at home.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You feel emotional. You want to persuade others to agree with you. In fact, you might go overboard and try to coerce someone. Instead, use this persuasive energy to teach others or enlighten them, while at the same time respecting their point of view.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can either be at loggerheads with someone about financial matters, money or your belongings — or you can use this same energy to see new uses and applications for something you already own. Perhaps you will see new ways of making money as well?
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your encounters with others will be intense. They might be motivated by guilt, jealousy or possessiveness. Because you are too emotional, it’s hard to see things clearly. Knowing this, step back and take a breather. Stay chill.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Channel whatever strong feelings you have into doing something to improve your health. This is the kind of day where you can build a better mousetrap. You might see ways to introduce reforms or improvements at work. Just don’t be too pushy. (You know who you are.)
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Powerful discussions to manipulate a romantic partner are possible today. But why even go there? Instead, use this energy to see ways to improve matters in sports, working with children, the hospitality industry or anything to do with the entertainment world.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Intense discussions with authority figures might be counterproductive. (That’s a euphemism for saying you blew it.) Actually, this energy can be used in a helpful way. You might see ways to cut costs or make improvements. Why not use your Libran diplomacy to discuss this?
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can either proselytize and harangue others to agree with your political or religious views today. Or you can be open to the idea that someone else has something to say that could enlighten you. Yeah, this is not always easy to swallow.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Disputes about shared property, taxes, debt, insurance matters and inheritances might take place today. If so, they will be intense and emotional. This is not an ideal day for these discussions. (Ya think?) Do your homework and talk about these things another day.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Powerful disagreements with partners and close friends might take place. But of course, it takes two to have a fight. You don’t have to participate. In fact, if someone is doing the nasty and you just smile and saunter away — it drives them crazy!
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Instead of disagreeing with co-workers or bosses at work today — look around and see what improvements and reforms you can suggest. Naturally, if your wise suggestions are rebuffed, you will be annoyed. (There is none so deaf as those who are wearing ear buds.)
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Parents must be patient with their kids because an emotional meltdown is just too hard on everyone. Lighten up and lower your expectations. The same applies to romantic relationships. Think about what your objective is. Obviously, you don’t want to be miserable, do you?
