Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is the time of year when it’s most appropriate for you to focus on debt, shared property and your responsibilities regarding the wealth and resources of others. This includes inheritances, taxes and insurance issues. Dry stuff but important.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Remember that the Sun is opposite your sign now, which means you need more sleep. The Sun is your source of energy and it is as far away from you as it gets all year. This oppositional placement also makes you focus on partnerships.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Use the energy of this month to get better organized. It will please you to feel more on top of your scene. Get rid of what you don’t need. Clean messy piles of papers, files, magazines and books. Find the floor of your bedroom closet.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Because this is a playful time for you, it’s important to take time to play! Basically, the placement of the Sun right now urges you to feel freed to just be yourself and do what you want to do — within reason, of course.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Home, family and your personal life are your primary focus. Some of you are tackling home repairs as well. Family discussions are significant. Time spent with younger family members will be rewarding. Meanwhile, your communication style is powerful! (Kinda scary, too)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The pace of your days is accelerating with short trips, discussions, errands and increased reading, writing and studying. Just accept this and go with the flow. You’re also working hard to spend money because you’re hemorrhaging it. (Why is there so much month left at the end of the money?)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

With Mars in your sign, you’re full of dynamic, physical energy. (You might be coming on too strong for others.) Your focus is on money, cash flow, earnings and how to keep your boat afloat. Stay on this trajectory and all will be well. (Next year you will boost your earnings.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are empowered now with the Sun in your sign. This happens only once a year and lasts for four weeks. When this occurs, you can recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. Plus, it’s easy to attract people and important circumstances to you. Sweet!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Physical activity and competition with others is taking place now. Ironically, you would prefer to keep a low profile, but you will relate to others when you have to. Use the next week to plan what you want your new year (birthday to birthday) to be all about.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Enjoy this increased popularity. Not only are you loving the company of others, you will also benefit by sharing your hopes and dreams for the future with someone because their feedback will help you. This is not a time to go it alone.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is the only time all year when the Sun is at the top of your chart acting like a spotlight on you. Furthermore, this spotlight is flattering, which is why people in authority will ask you to take on new jobs or increased responsibilities. Say yes. Good lighting is everything.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Do whatever you can to break free from your ho-hum routine. Travel, explore your own city, take courses or expand your world through film and books so you feel you are getting more out of life. Basically, you want answers to big questions and some adventure!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Sam Waterston (1940) shares your birthday today. You have a strong sense of justice. You’re also courageous and gutsy. You’re not afraid to confront others; nevertheless, you are always patient. 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.
