Moon Alert

Avoid shopping and important decisions from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. After that the Moon moves from Gemini into Cancer. (The New Moon occurs in Gemini at 9:05 a.m.)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You might be outspoken with family. You will certainly be direct, which of course, is your style. Quite likely, you have specific ideas about changes that you want to introduce at home. Punch clocks with people signing in and out. Hut! Two, three, four!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you will mean what you say and say what you mean. That’s why others will be convinced of your words and they will listen to you. An especially strong day for those of you who write, sell, market, teach or act.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You have ideas about financial matters, your cash flow, earnings or spending. You know what you want and you know what you don’t want. Today’s New Moon is a good day to think about your values and what really matters. (“I don’t want to be a bag lady!”)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today the only New moon in your sign all year is taking place. Because each New Moon is an opportunity to make resolutions, take a realistic look in the mirror and ask yourself what you can do to improve your image in the world.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your focus might be on behind the scenes is or something private or hidden. Because your birthday is just one month away, set aside some time to make some resolutions about what you want your new year (birthday to birthday) to be all about.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You have a popular month ahead, which will include physical activity and competition in groups. Because today is the New Moon, it’s the perfect time to think about your hopes and dreams for the future and your goals for the next two years.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You will be high viz. for the next four weeks because it is the only time all year when the Sun is at the top of your chart casting a flattering light on you. You will look good to others. Today’s New Moon is the perfect day to ponder your general direction in life.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You will be eager to travel and broaden your horizons in the next month to study, learning and exploring many avenues. Today’s New Moon is an excellent opportunity to narrow this focus. What you want to learn? Where do you want to go?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The next four weeks will be quite intense. Your passions will run high and you’ll have strong opinions about everything. You might have disputes about shared property or inheritances. Figure out now what you want and where you’re willing to draw the line.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is the only time all year that the New Moon is opposite your sign. This means your focus is all about partnerships and close friendships at this time. What can you do to improve these relationships?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’ll set high standards for yourself in the next four weeks because you want to get organized. This is a good thing. (Of course, it’s easier to fight for your principles than to live up to them.) Set some goals to improve your health and the way you run your life.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A deliciously playful month ahead! Slip away on a vacation. Romance, sports, socializing and playful times with children plus the arts will rank tops. What have you done lately to express your creative urges? Think about this on today’s New Moon.
