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 Leo.
IF APRIL 9 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Fashion designer Marc Jacobs (1963) shares your birthday. You are individualistic and have opinions about things; and sometimes these opinions set you apart from others. You are skilled at transforming your ideas into action and persuasive about persuading others to respect what you endorse. This year you will build through associations with others. Partnerships will be important. Your success lies through others, so make yourself known.

◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): It’s midweek and that’s your excuse to party. Take a long lunch. Grab a matinee. Enjoy sports events or playful times with children. This is also a great day for a date. The bottom line is you want to have fun and express your creativity.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Home and family are your focus. Perhaps a female relative will be front and center in your life. You will enjoy a chance to cocoon at home because you’ve been working hard plus schmoozing with creative types. Time for a rest.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You have a strong need to talk to others because you want to enlighten someone about something. In these discussions, you want to get down to the nitty-gritty of things. You don’t want superficial conversations about the weather. Not today.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll enjoy taking care of something that you own. You might want to clean, polish, maintain or repair it because you feel protective about your possessions. Meanwhile, you have changing thoughts about earnings and cash flow.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Today the Moon is in your sign, which brings you a little bit of extra good luck. It can also make you more emotional than usual. Just go along for the ride and hope that things go your way. Why not ask the universe for a favor? You just might get it.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You might prefer working alone or behind the scenes today (just because). Sometimes we need to retire from the dizziness and insanity swirling around us. Fortunately, your relationships with others are warm and cozy in the next few weeks.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Today you might have a significant conversation with a female acquaintance or friend. It could be trading confidential information or a heart-to-heart talk. If you share your hopes and goals for the future with this person, their feedback could be helpful.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Private details about your personal life might be public. In particular, the people who might be aware of this are bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. Or perhaps it’s just ugly argument in an elevator. (Wince.) Just be aware of this possibility in case you have to do some damage control.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Because you have a secret longing for adventure, do something different! Shake it up a little. Take a different route to or from work. Go someplace different for lunch. Preferably — travel. Or be a two-hour tourist in your own city. (I’ve done this and it’s fun!)
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your ambition is strong; and right now home, family and your personal life are your main focus. However, today you need to give some attention to red-tape details about insurance matters, inheritances, taxes, debt and shared property. Make sure you know what’s happening.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Because the Moon is opposite your sign, you have to give a little. Be prepared to compromise or go more than halfway because that’s how it works. Don’t worry; in two weeks from now when the Moon is in your sign, others will have to go more than halfway to talk to you.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You have the energy to tackle routine tasks and get them behind you today, especially at work. This is a good day to deal with pet-related activities or duties and shopping for hygiene items and all of the little things you need to stock up on. Write your To-Do List.
