Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re planning to have fun today. Sports events, playful times with children, social diversions, the theater, movies, the arts and romantic schmoozing promise good times for you! However, be careful that your enthusiasm does not go overboard. Start with baby steps.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Big ideas about how to make great improvements to where you live, or perhaps to help a family member, have you pumped today. You know this is a good time to improve your family relationships, as well as to improve your home scene. Start small and stay real.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is an upbeat and optimistic day! Short trips, errands and a busy tempo will keep you on the go. One tiny caveat however: Don’t make promises that you can’t keep later. Your enthusiasm for something might make you do this. Don’t end up with egg on your face. (Ketchup helps.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Be careful with finances and how you handle money today because you might overestimate something. This is not typical for your sign because by nature, you are frugal and careful with your cash. Just remember: if something looks too good to be true, it is.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today Mercury is lined up with Jupiter in your sign. This means you are happy about today and your future. Even naysayers in positions of power will not diminish your enthusiasm. This is good because your belief in what is possible is why you succeed. Natch!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Something that occurs behind the scenes today will give you hope. This might be an encounter with someone, or you might learn something through research and study. Later, someone might raise objections to your ideas. It’s up to you to find the balance of truth.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Someone youngandenthusiastic might raise your hopes about something, especially something you want to achieve the future. (This could relate to a group to which you belong.) Later, the financial aspect of it might make things look impossible. That might be a just a temporary delay.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Parents, bosses and authority figures are impressed with your enthusiasm for something. You have big ideas today, and you see ways to implement them. Typically, someone will oppose you. Possibly, you will oppose the big ideas of someone else? Mediocrity has ruined so many great plans.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are totally stoked about travel plans now. (Your favorite thing!) Likewise, some of you are just as enthused about something to do with publishing, higher education, medicine and the law. Do not let the negative attitude of others shoot you down.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is an excellent day to decide how to share something, divide an inheritance or deal with financial disputes about insurance matters, debt and obligations. Whatever happens will likely come out in your favor. Naturally, you can’t please everyone. Just take things one day at a time.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Discussions with partners and close friends are warm and upbeat today. Everyone is stoked about something. Your plans are exciting — and big! Naturally, this will attract a naysayer who might or might not have something worthwhile to offer. You decide.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’ve got big ideas about your job today, or perhaps, even something related to your health. Whatever the case, you are enthusiastic about something. Work-related travel is likely as well. Obstacles to travel or religious/legal restrictions that will arise are things you can deal with. Keep the faith, baby!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Charlize Theron (1975) shares your birthday today. You are funny and clever, with excellent social skills. You are drawn to secrets and undercover work, even if it’s dangerous. This is the year you have been waiting for. It’s a time of expansion and great activity. Take advantage of opportunities. A major change might take place, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2006. It’s time to try your wings!
