Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You start this week off eager to be efficient. You want better control of your life. You want to get things done. You particularly want to get better organized at home. Oy vey. Late in the day, family discussions might help you do this. Fingers crossed.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You feel playful and prankish today! Yes, it’s Monday, but why not have fun? Activities with children, sports and the arts will appeal. Why not make plans for some fun, social events this week? Romantic conversations will excite you.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

“It was Monday. It was Monday all day.” Frankly, you would rather stay at home today. You feel the need to cocoon and hide from the busyness of everything around you. Nevertheless, you can do something that might help your job or boost your income. (Like going to work.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re full of energy because fiery Mars is in your sign, along with the Sun and busy Mercury. You’ve got places to go, things to do and people to see! Physical exercise or athletic activities will appeal and help burn off any pent-up energy you might have. It’s Monday! Wheee!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You feel the need to hide or work alone or work behind the scenes. It’s just what it is. No biggie. You need time to make plans and regroup because you have a busy month ahead. On Wednesday, the Sun will enter your sign to stay for four weeks, and that changes everything.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’re caught up in a social swirl right now involving young people, groups, friends and possibly physical, competitive activities. This is a strong day for you because the Moon is in your sign. Yes, it heightens your emotions, but it also brings you a bit of good luck.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This week starts off slowly for you. You would prefer to be behind the scenes or hiding in the wings because you’re not quite cranked up to give it full throttle — not just yet. Nevertheless, conversations with authority figures will be important. Good luck.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You’re busy today because you’re involved with others, especially a female friend. (This conversation could be significant.) It’s a good day to make plans about future travel, future education or anything to do with publishing and the media.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

People notice you today. In fact, personal details about your private life might be public, especially in the eyes of bosses, parents and the police. Just be aware of this in case you have to do some damage control. Good day to ask for financial support.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You want to break free of your Monday routine today. You want to do something different, like see new places, talk to new faces. Obviously, if you can travel, do so. If not, do something different. Go someplace you’ve never been before. “To infinity and beyond!”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Right off the bat, you want to get down to business today. Discussions about practical or financial support that you need at work might occur. It’s also a good day to address other red-tape matters related to shared property, inheritances and insurance issues.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Be prepared to go more than halfway when dealing with others today because the Moon is opposite your sign. (You have no choice.) In particular, expect to bend a little when dealing with children, sports events, the arts and fun, social occasions. It is what it is.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Dean Winters (1964) shares your birthday today. You are vibrant, adventuresome and physically active. You need to be on the go. Nevertheless, you are grounded and practical in an earthy way. Good news! This is a year of accumulation, and perhaps one of the most powerful years of your life. You will reap what you have sown because it’s a time of fruition and a good time to buy and sell.
