Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to do business. The Moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Do what you can to feel better organized today. Likewise, you will be pleased with yourself if you do something that helps you to feel healthier, as well. This could relate to diet, exercise or meditation, whatever floats your boat.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You’re in a creative frame of mind; and you feel playful and lighthearted. That’s why this is a good day to kick back and relax at home or to meet friends and family for a planned social occasion — movie, picnic, sports event, whatever. Enjoy your day!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is the perfect day to cocoon at home and relax. Do not give yourself a busy To Do list. Instead, enjoy taking it easy, and enjoy the company of family members, especially a warm conversation with a female. There are financial issues you need to clarify.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today your communications with others are based on your gut level understanding of things. It’s not that logic has flown out the window, but you’re thinking will be based on your hunches; including feelings based on past experiences.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Money, possessions and your values will preoccupy you today. Essentially, to make wise money decisions, and even decisions about what you own, you have to know what really matters to you. Not all people have the same values. (Except when it comes to dark chocolate.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign, which will make you more emotional than usual. However, it has an advantage. When the Moon is in your sign you tend to be luckier than all the other signs. Why not ask the universe for a favor? Test this.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You will prefer to keep a low profile today by working alone or behind the scenes. Or perhaps, not even working at all. (“Don’t bother me. I’m not coming out until Groundhog Day.”) If you want to be productive, do research and solving old problems will be your best bet.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Expect to have a warm discussion with a female companion today. However, whomever you talk to, you will probably get some help rethinking some future plans and goals. After all, in 2012, you set off on a new path; nevertheless, this year your reputation really shines! Goals would be wise.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Personal details about your private life are probably a bit public today, especially in the eyes of bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police. “Name and driver’s license, please.” Eeek. Just be aware of this in case you have to do a little damage control.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Indulge your need for a little adventure today. Basically, you want a change of scenery. You also want a chance to learn something new that truly stimulates your mind. In other words, you want to shake things up a bit so that you feel you’re getting more out of life. Go for it.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You will feel more intensely about practically anything today because it’s just what it is. But you will feel most intensely about sex and about other people’s money and wealth. Oh yeah. To a lesser degree, you might be concerned with shared property, inheritances and red-tape stuff.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Because the Moon is opposite your sign today, you have to compromise a bit when dealing with others. In other words, be prepared to go more than halfway. This isn’t really such a big deal, especially if you’re wearing stunning new shoes.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Film director Atom Egoyan (1960) shares your birthday today. You know how to master your body and movements so that you always appear graceful. Go slowly this year. You are self-aware and constantly trying to improve yourself, which is admirable. There is something important to learn. The first half of this year will seem slow; but soon, your efforts of the past six years will start to show results! Get out into nature this year.
