Moon Alert

After 9:15 a.m., avoid shopping or big decisions. The Moon is in Taurus.

If Your Birthday Is March 23

Princess Eugenie of York (1990) shares your birthday. You have an investigative mind. You are curious about everything, but take nothing at face value. You are fanciful, playful and caring. Go slowly this year. 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.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You might face agonizing choices because you’re tempted to buy lovely, luxurious items — something irresistible! However, the Moon Alert cautions you not to shop for anything except gas or food. Waaaa. And so it goes.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You’re a charming, social schmoozer, which is why your relations with others are friendly, warm and diplomatic. In fact, you might play the role of arbitrator or matchmaker because you will bring people together. You seem to sense what others really want.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

In some ways, this is a bit of a mystical day for you. Your inner idealism is aroused, which is why you feel concerned for those who are less fortunate. This is also why you will put the wants and needs of others before your own. Rather admirable.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a pleasant day because not only are you genuinely interested in the welfare of others; you might feel a soul union with a friend. Perhaps this sounds extreme. If so, notice how much you care for a friend or the welfare of an acquaintance. People matter.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Leos think highly of their friends. Leos are also loyal. Today you might admire someone in a position of authority so much you secretly idolize them in some way. (Especially if they have given you diamonds or done you a big favor.) You’re a bit starry-eyed today.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened, give yourself a chance to enjoy beautiful places and things. Visit art galleries, museums, gorgeous architectural buildings, pristine parks and charming streets. You might crush on someone from another culture. Woo, woo.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

There is an interesting two-pronged influence: in one way, you feel sympathy for those who have less and you will be generous to someone. But in another way, the universe is also generous to you — so keep your pockets open. Gifts and goodies will come your way!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Dealings with partners and close friends are smooth and gracious because Venus is dancing with Neptune, and this dance softens all relationships and points of view. You can be empathetic because you see what it’s like to walk a mile in someone else’s wedgies.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A work-related romance might begin. Or perhaps you will admire a co-worker or someone related to your job? (Admiration does not have to be romantic.) Or perhaps you will counsel a co-worker or even seek help yourself? People are mutually sympathetic.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a wonderful day for involvement in the arts because you are in touch with your muse. Enjoy social events, saucy flirtations, affectionate gatherings and playful times with children as well as sports events. You feel warm-hearted to everyone!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a lovely day to entertain at home, or perhaps, to just cocoon and hide away from the world in pleasant surroundings. You might also feel the urge to redecorate or tweak your digs. Please be aware of the shopping warning in the Moon Alert. Forewarned is forearmed. (Gulp.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You feel warm affection for everyone you encounter. In fact, even your surroundings seemed to be more beautiful than usual. This is because your appreciation of people and things is heightened, which is a lovely way to be. Pisces people can make money from their words, which is good for sales and writing.
