Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

The heavens have bestowed us with a fun Friday! Time to celebrate! The only thing to be careful about is opening your mouth and promising more than you can deliver. Be circumspect. Be realistic. Do a good job and charge a lot.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Another excellent day for business and commerce! Things are looking so swell today, the only thing you have to worry about is overestimating something. Just possibly, something might look better than it really is. But it probably really is. Go for baroque.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today, the Moon is still in your sign, but this is a much, much better day! Enjoy yourself but beware foolish generosity, extravagance and laziness. “Moi?” Not you, of course. Just pass this on to others. Make plans to play today or tonight.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you feel a bit private. Nevertheless, you do have a strong urge to communicate to others because you want to enlighten someone about something. Perhaps a family discussion? Perhaps with siblings? Go right ahead because this is a feel-good time.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a lovely day to schmooze with others, especially females. You will also enjoy interactions with groups. Make time for Happy Hour at your favorite spot. You’re in a talkative frame of mind and everyone wants to hear what you have to say. Yada, yada, yada.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Discussions with parents, bosses and authority figures will be jolly and upbeat today. On the whole, things look swell. (Let’s bring that word back.) But be aware: Don’t let someone entice you into promising too much. This is your weak spot because you are so service-oriented.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

If you can travel anywhere today, do it. If you can’t, then be a tourist in your own city. Take a different route to or from work. Go someplace you’ve never been before. Talk to people from different backgrounds so you feel adventurous. You want some excitement in your life!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

If making a decision regarding an inheritance or how to divide something today, be careful. Quite likely, things will go well, and in fact, probably in your favor. But there is a chance that you will be too generous and give away the farm. Don’t do it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a fabulous day to schmooze with others. Get on your glad rags and paint the town red! (I’ve been watching Gene Kelly movies.) “Gotta dance!” Enjoy conversations with friends and partners. People in power are also impressed with you. Not too shabby.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Travel plans look exciting today. In fact, you might entertain doing something that is more ambitious than you originally thought. Work-related travel is also likely. Whatever the case, you will enjoy spreading your wings to see new places and talk to new faces.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Now you can get the support from others that you want for a social occasion or a vacation or a fun event. (This just shows that patience pays off.) And it’s true, timing is everything, although the future isn’t what it used to be, is it? Ask for a loan or money if you want.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Step out of your routine and enjoy fun times with others today. You can either entertain at home or get the bright lights because the main thing is you want to share your enthusiasm with someone. It’s exciting when like minds can share ideas (and shoes if they wear the same size).

If Your Birthday Is Today

TV host Kelly Ripa (1970) shares your birthday today. You have a powerful personality. You also have a way with words and when you choose, you are direct and to the point. (Your charm generally saves you.) This is a testing year of growth and building. This growth will occur beneath the surface. Do not make major changes yet — wait until next year. Strengthen your financial position by reducing your overhead.
