Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Yes, it’s Monday, but it’s a great Monday! You feel playful, creative, flirtatious and ready for fun! Great day to travel, enjoy sports and playful times with children and perhaps strike up a new romance. Strong day for the arts, the hospitality industry and the entertainment world.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Family businesses will thrive today because it will be easy to get money, supplies and assistance from other people and other sources. You have lots of energy to improve your home scene or your family surroundings as well. Good day for finances. Ka-ching!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a fantastic day to start your week. You’re upbeat, eager and interested in everything, and at the same time, you’re willing to work hard. In fact, serious discussions with partners and close friends (professional or personal) will be productive. Because you are set on getting things done, you will!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Business and commerce are blessed today, making this an excellent day to discuss financial matters, sales, earnings and major purchases, especially real estate or anything for your home. You’re diligent and ready to work because you have a strong sense of duty.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a grand day. The Moon is in your sign dancing with the Sun, with Saturn, and also with fiery Mars. Mars gives you energy and emotional force and the urge to make home improvements. Saturn keeps you steady on your course, and the Sun promotes harmony all around you. Not too shabby.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You feel empowered today, especially when working alone or behind the scenes. This is a good time for home repairs and family discussions. You’re on top of your finances today because you’re pulling strings from the background like a master puppeteer.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is the perfect day to start your week because you are in fine form. Your ability to schmooze with others is wonderful, especially with friends and groups. You’re enthused about something, which is why others want to hear what you have to say — and what you have to say is imminently practical.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You will receive lots of good press today, which is a great way to start off your week. People think highly of you because you look energetic, strong, reliable and trustworthy. (Isn’t it amazing what you can do smoke and mirrors?)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are the traveler of the zodiac, which is why today’s travel plans appeal to you. Talk to others, especially groups, because you will get their cooperation. You can also make solid, practical plans for not only travel but also publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education. Just get on board!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Research will go well today, especially research into financial matters, mortgages, debt, taxes and shared property. You might be able to convince people in authority to go along with your wishes. Work alone or behind the scenes for best results.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an easygoing, pleasant day. A great way to start your week! However, because the Moon is opposite your sign, you will have to compromise and go more than halfway when dealing with others, which is no biggie. Today, everything is easy and straightforward.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a great day to start your week because you feel productive, friendly and ready for action. Look for opportunities to improve your situation. Because you can easily impress bosses and people in authority, you can pull off something that benefits you.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor-tenor Mandy Patinkin (1952) shares your birthday today. You are articulate and saucy with words. You also have vision. Those who know you personally enjoy your sharp wit. This year will be one of growth and building. Initially, this will take place quietly beneath the surface. Therefore, wait until next year to make major changes. If you can reduce your overhead, you will strengthen your financial position.
