Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business until 6:30 p.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a easygoing, laid-back day for you. Enjoy talking to friends and partners. Although you have been ambitious lately, today you’re prepared to cut others some slack. You won’t make a big deal about anything because you just want to keep the peace.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You will be successful talking to co-workers and customers today because you’re full of big ideas and you’re enthusiastic. People will want to hear what you have to say, and they will likely go along with your vision. You won’t push them: You will successfully entice them.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a playful, prankish, flirtatious day! (Since Geminis are playful and prankish, this suits you perfectly.) The bottom line is you want to have a good time today. Therefore, accept invitations to socialize. Enjoy sports events, the arts and fun times with children.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Domestic discussions are friendly and upbeat today. You might want to address practical matters, especially how to expand your home or do something ambitious about where you live. If someone opposes your ideas, their opposition will quickly fade.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a powerful day for those of you who write, sell, market, teach or act because your words are like gold! You will enthuse and encourage someone. You can sell an idea or change someone’s mind because not only are your words entertaining, they are wise. (Impressive.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’re full of great, moneymaking ideas today. You’re not afraid to think big and you not afraid to put your ideas into action. They might involve travel or dealing with foreign interests. Meanwhile, you feel particularly sympathetic to the needs of children today.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

People will listen to you today because you are enthusiastic and exuberant about something. (And we all know that enthusiasm is contagious.) You believe in what you say, and you’re excited about big plans for the future. Do not be insistent about things at home — not today.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It’s easy for you to feel content and happy with the world today. Even though you are a strong-willed, determined, forthright sign, today you will be softer and more easygoing in all your dealings with others. In fact, do not insist on anything because you are coming from a slightly confused stance.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your interactions with friends and groups will be strong and enthusiastic today. It will be easy for you to get along with others and persuade them to see things your way. Nevertheless, when it comes to financial matters, this is where you should hold back. This is where things are a bit dicey.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a powerful day to talk to bosses, parents and VIPs because they will welcome what you have to say. However, if you encounter disputes and you have to defend yourself, this is another matter entirely. You might second-guess yourself and be afraid of taking a firm stance. If challenged, do nothing.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You will enjoy studying something today or traveling somewhere because you are eager to expand your mind. By the same token, discussions about philosophy, religion and politics will turn your crank. Publishing and the media are favored.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Although you will not be pushy with a friend or members of a group today, you will be successful in discussions about shared property, inheritances, taxes and debt. In fact, you might be laughing all the way to the bank. Ka-ching!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Joan Cusack (1962) shares your birthday today. You are warm and loving and have a skill at putting others at ease. You are intelligent and quick witted. This has been a year of choice. You have likely made an important decision. Continue to reduce your overhead expenses so that you are financially strong late in the year. Remember: Happiness is having alternatives. Next year brings work!
