Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You will enjoy today because you love adventure and discovering new things; and that’s exactly what’s in store for you today. Expect to meet new faces and see new places. You’re also brimming with bright, clever new ideas! If you have a chance to take a spontaneous, short trip — say yes!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Keep an eye on your money and finances today because you might find money or you might lose money. Similarly, something you own might be stolen, lost or misplaced. On the upside, you might have ingenious, moneymaking ideas —or they might be out to lunch.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You are ambitious today. Since your sense of intuition is finely tuned in, trust your hunches. Your feelings of independence and self-reliance are strong today, which might make you cocky when dealing with bosses. You’re full of changeable moods today as well — but hey, this is fun. You don’t do boring.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a restless day for you. You have that feeling you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. Basically, you can sense that unexpected events, people and circumstances around you are likely to change suddenly. And you’re right; they will.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

A friend, especially a female acquaintance, will surprise you today. This person might introduce you to a group, or you might become involved with a charitable organization. Alternatively, some of you will meet a real character today. Whatever happens, it ain’t boring!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today is full of tiny surprises. For starters, you feel independent and even rebellious. However, you might also be surprised that personal details about your private life are public. It will be interesting to watch other people react to what they learn.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Unexpected opportunities to travel are likely today. Likewise, you might encounter a teacher who surprises you with unusual information that is very modern or very ancient. News from afar about someone in another land might also surprise you. It’s an interesting day!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Stay in touch with your bank account today because something unexpected might occur with your relationship to debt, bills, shared property, inheritances and anything that you share with someone else. Do not be caught unawares. Be informed.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A partner or close friend will surprise you today. This person might want more space or suggest a new arrangement to your existing situation. Possibly, you are the one who will surprise someone else? People are inclined to be independent today. Everyone feels a bit rebellious.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your work routine will be interrupted today, perhaps because of computer crashes, power outages, fire drills, canceled meetings or staff shortages. Basically, the interruption is minor — but it will exist. Don’t be lippy with authority figures today. (Not really your style.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an accident-prone day for your kids so be careful. This also applies to you if you work with children. On the other hand, spontaneous invitations and unexpected opportunities to enjoy parties, sports events and the arts might fall in your lap. Sounds like fun!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A family member might have something to say today that amazes you. One thing is certain: Something to do with your home routine will be unusual. Small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur. Family news might be unusual. Someone might make a unique suggestion; or someone unexpected might appear at your door. “Boris!” “Natasha!”

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Gillian Anderson (1968) shares your birthday today. You are caring, giving and a source of strength to others. You like a structured life because you are a team player. You can be very persuasive. 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.
