Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Anything related to your job will flow more smoothly today because the Full Moon is behind you, as it were. In fact, look for ways to introduce improvements, especially with how things are done behind the scenes.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You have survived yesterday’s Full Moon. It was a tough Full Moon and today there is still a residue feeling, which means you have to be patient with others. Likewise, be patient with romantic partners so that you can enjoy good times.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Personal details about your private life might be public today. Certainly, people will notice you more than usual; be aware of this. Fortunately, your communication skills are tops because of the placement of the Sun in your chart.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Do something different today to escape your usual routine. Travel if you can, or at least take a different route to or from work. Visit ethnic restaurants. Talk to people from different backgrounds. Shake things up a bit so that you have a sense of adventure, and you are stimulated by life!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today is an easier day than yesterday. Many of you will take financial stock of your situation because you have been spending money in a big way — as is your wont. (Leos have style and pizzazz and this generally costs money.) Nevertheless, you will attract positive situations and people to you now.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

As your birthday looms nearer and nearer, you have less time to plan what you want your new year to be all about. Get busy! Write down some goals with deadlines. In the coming year, this will help you focus with more direction, which means you will accomplish more than usual. Try it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You can have it all today. You can schmooze with friends and you can also work and accomplish a lot. In part, this is because your style of talking and communicating to others is unusually forceful and direct. Believe me, others notice.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Make plans to party today. Have a long lunch. Enjoy an evening out for a fun date because you are in a playful mood. Nevertheless, be aware that because the Sun is at the top of your chart, everyone notices you!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might want to hide at home today because life has been busy and you have been out there flying your colors! Perhaps a conversation with a female family member will be important. (Remember that with Mars in your sign now, you are coming on a pretty strong.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You want to have real conversations with others today, not superficial chitchat. Many of you will also be caught up in past memories, which can make you act by habit or rote. Do what you can do be aware of the moment. Be here now.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Money matters are on your mind today (because money matters). This is a good time for you to benefit from the wealth and resources of others, which means it’s easier to get a loan or a mortgage right now. Lucky you! Ask for what you want!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today the Moon is in your sign, which will make you more emotional than usual. Keep this in mind if you are having a reaction to something that somebody says. Fortunately, fair Venus is opposite your sign making your relationships smooth and easygoing.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Former President Bill Clinton (1946) shares your birthday today. You are warm and friendly. You enjoy the limelight. You are also confident, enthusiastic and optimistic. You have a sharp wit and a clever mind. Take note: This is a year of choice. You will make an important decision. In the first half of the year, reduce your overhead expenses so that you are financially strong later in the year. Happiness is having alternatives.
