MOON ALERT: After 5 a.m., we have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Taurus.

IF Dec. 30 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Kristin Kreuk (1982) shares your birthday. You are organized and willful. You like things to be orderly because you hate chaos and waste. Above all, you are a realist. This is a testing year of growth and building, but this growth will occur beneath the surface. Do not make major changes yet — wait until next year. Strengthen your financial position by reducing your overhead.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): A gaggle of planets are at high noon in your chart, which means you are powerful, you are noticed and you have influence. Why do you have influence? Because people in authority see you in a flattering light, and this gives you powah!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Today the Moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional than usual. No biggie. But you will feel sympathetic to the needs of others, and if you can help someone in need — you will. Meanwhile, back at the airport, you’re hoping for an upgrade. You need to get outta town!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Quiet, behind-the-scenes work will pay off because you can clear up a lot of loose details regarding shared property, debt, taxes, insurance matters and inheritances. You feel sexually passionate now, as well. Ah yes, money and sex!

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Remember to get more sleep because the Sun is as far away from you as it gets all year and the Sun is your source of energy. Right now, your focus is on partnerships and close friendships. Today, a discussion with a female friend will be sympathetic and tender. Gosh.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Because you’re keen to get better organized at work and at home, act on this urge. Others will help you. People are full of bright ideas and they feel kindly toward you. Having said that, you feel impatient with someone today. Nothing is perfect.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22: You’re prepared to work hard right now, which is why you might want to pop a few vitamins. Today in particular, you have a desire to get away from all this. You want to do something different. You also want to learn something new. Excellent! Get on with it!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your focus is on home, family and personal matters now. Family discussions are significant; and many of you are addressing home repairs or redecorating projects. Discussions with a female about shared property or income from someone else could be helpful.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): This is a busy time for you because of short trips, tasks, errands, visits with others and increased reading and writing. You’re packing a lot into 24 hours. Increased activity and chaos at home add to this dizzy busyness.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Money, money, money. Trust your money-making ideas because many Sagittarians often have great thoughts about generating wealth. You might also buy pretty things for yourself and others. (Why not?) A conversation with a work colleague will be mutually sympathetic.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): How interesting. The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Pluto are all in Capricorn at this moment. I hope you’re looking your best. Since you are spending money now you might look terrific. This is a creative day for you, and those of you who are involved in artistic projects will be productive.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Even though you are working behind the scenes or working alone — you are putting out tons of energy! Furthermore, you are aggressive and competitive — all this from behind the scenes. Amazing, when you think about it. Financial matters connected with a female relative are important.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is such a popular time for you! Younger people and creative, artistic people all want to see you. A conversation with a female friend will be important. You might exchange confidential information or feel encouraged by a mutual bond.
