Moon Alert

After 9:30 a.m., we have the all clear to do business. The Moon is in Taurus.

If Your Birthday Is Friday

Actor Tim DeKay (1963) shares your birthday. You have boundless energy and easily exude positive vibes. This is because you assume life will go well and things will be fine. Sure enough — 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. It’s also a good time to buy and sell.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a mellow day. You want to spend money on good food and drink. Your focus is also on cash flow, earnings and possibly, your possessions. Quite likely, you feel a bit possessive about something. “My precious!”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today the Moon is in Taurus, which makes you more emotional than usual; but it also brings you extra good luck. Not a bad thing. We can all use every bit of luck that comes our way. Ask the universe for a favor — see what happens.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

With the Sun, Mercury and Mars in your sign, life is hectic because you’re busy and “out there.” That’s why today, if you can withdraw from all this busyness, you’ll feel relieved. Work alone or behind the scenes or cocoon somewhere. Do this for you.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

A conversation with a female acquaintance will be important. You might also feel parental to someone when you talk to them. (“Are you going to work looking like that?”) A discussion with someone could make you tweak a future goal. Be open to this.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Personal details about your private life might be public today. It might be a big deal or nothing that concerns you at all; after all, many Leos are comfortable being in the limelight. Do be aware that you’re not flying under the radar.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Because you long for adventure and a chance to learn something new, change your daily routine. Shake things up a little. Take a different route to or from work. Visit an ethnic restaurant. Take a short trip or be a tourist in your own town. You want some thrills!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

At some point, your focus will be on red-tape details. Banking taxes, debt, shared property, inheritances or insurance matters. Yeah, this is boring but it won’t go away on its own. Because travel plans are a top priority now, clean up some of these loose ends.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today the Moon is in Taurus, which is 180 degrees opposite your sign. This happens for two days every month, and means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. In two weeks, when the Moon is in your sign, others will have to go more than halfway when dealing with you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Make a To Do list so you can check errands and tasks you want to complete. You might be focused on the needs of a pet or something health-related more than usual. Basically, you want to tidy up your life so you feel better organized.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Lucky you! It’s Friday and you’re in party mode. Accept all invitations to play. Explore the arts, movies, the theater and the entertainment world. Enjoy sports events and playful times with children. However, be careful this evening because it’s easy to kid yourself.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might want to cocoon at home. (You might want to play hooky and not even go to work.) Basically, your primary focus is on home, family and your private world. A conversation with a female relative, especially Mom, could be significant.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a busy day full of errands and minor demands. Conversations with friends, siblings and relatives and neighbors are likely. In conversation with others, you want the straight goods — not superficial chitchat about the weather or politics.
