◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is a goofy, creative one. The main thing to be aware of is to avoid major purchases or important decisions because whatever you initiate will probably not achieve your objective. In other words, if you buy something to use it — you won’t.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is a playful, fun-loving day. Just goof off and enjoy yourself. Check with the Moon Alert above and avoid major purchases and decisions. Enjoy playful, social times with others. It’s a creative day for everyone, so write down your genius-like ideas.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a dreamy, playful day for you. Check with the Moon Alert above if you are contemplating shopping for anything other than food. Just go with the flow. Make no demands on yourself or others. Quite the opposite, be easygoing with everyone!
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is a great day to schmooze with others and brainstorm imaginative ideas. You will love to explore approaches on how to make the world a better place. You will also enjoy hanging out with charitable organizations and people of like minds.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Others see you in sympathetic terms today. Perhaps they will get a better appreciation of what it is you do, especially if you are in charge; or they might have a better appreciation of how sympathetic and caring you are. If you can use your influence to help someone, you will.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Once again, your appreciation of beauty is heightened, which means you will enjoy being in beautiful places. Visit parks, campuses, art galleries, architectural buildings and museums. Similarly, discuss ideas that inspire you.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Although you might be focused on shared property, inheritances, taxes and debt, this is a poor day to make important decisions in these matters. Be careful you don’t go overboard one way or the other because of feelings of sympathy for yourself or others. Wait until tomorrow to act.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Today the Sun is opposite your sign dancing with dreamy Neptune. This could make your conversations with others slightly confused or on the other hand, they might be concerned with idealistic considerations. Either way, reality and practicality are not a priority. Oops.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your sympathy for a coworker or another person might make you want to help them or put their interests before your own. Don’t make major decisions regarding this because it’s a poor day for big decisions. But if you can help someone, do so.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is a great day for those of you who work in any kind of creative field. You’re full of imaginative ideas, and it’s easy to think outside of the box. Enjoy sports events, social occasions, parties, schmoozing with others and playful times with children.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are aware of the needs of family members, and this makes you more willing to help them out.

◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Spiritual and mystical concerns might intrigue you tday. Or you might want to withdraw from your normal routine to cocoon somewhere. You feel idealistic and vulnerable. And yet, you also feel that you want to help others if they need it.
