Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Because the Moon is in your sign today, you will be more emotional than usual as you react to things going on around you or to whatever anyone says. Just be aware of this. That way you can monitor yourself and dial it down if necessary.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Part of your chart wants you to play and flirt! But a strong part of your chart want you to be low-key and focus on home and family. Maybe you can do both? Take half of this day to be introspective at home and use the other have to be socially playful?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A heart-to-heart talk with a female friend is important today. You feel nurturing or concerned for this person. However, one thing that might come out of this exchange is you will fine-tune your goals for the future. It’s always good to have feedback, isn’t it?

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Personal details about your private life are out there today. People definitely notice you. This is also a good day to think about your life direction in general. Are you headed where you want to go? Do you even think about this?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Do something different today so you have a sense of adventure! Ideally, travel if you can. But if you can’t, then be a tourist in your own city. Explore something new. Visit ethnic restaurants; talk to people from different backgrounds and other cultures; go someplace you’ve never been before so that you are stimulated by your surroundings.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a good day to wrap up loose ends regarding taxes, debt, shared property and inheritances. Just focus on doing something even if you only devote 30 minutes to this task. Because you have increased responsibilities at home now, it’s important to know what’s going on. Information is power.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Because the Moon today is in a sign that is opposite to your sign, you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. You have to compromise and accommodate. This is not a big deal. It simply means you cannot be demanding.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It will please you to set aside some time today to get better organized. You might also get rid of something you really don’t use or need. Why not throw away three things from your medicine cabinet? What about your fridge? Scorpio is good about purging that which is unnecessary.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a playful, flirtatious, fun-loving day! Enjoy the arts, sports and fun activities with children. With Mars in your sign now, you will like physical athletics, perhaps even a competition with someone. “I win!” (Eat my dust.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It will please you to cocoon at home today because you want to be among familiar surroundings. Family discussions, especially with female relatives, will take place. But you will also welcome the opportunity to hide and enjoy your own solitude.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Short trips, conversations with others plus opportunities to read and study will please you today because you want to be interested in life! You want to learn something new. You want to have fascinating conversations about profound topics affecting our global village.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

It’s easy to identify with something that you own today, which is why you will enjoy cleaning or repairing it. This is also why you won’t want to lend something to someone. You want to hang on to things today. Especially your money.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Kim Cattrall (1956) shares your birthday today. You have drive, vitality and enthusiasm. You enjoy fun times and enliven every situation. You are family oriented and value your close relationships. You voice your opinions. Take advantage of opportunities that present themselves this year because this is the year you’ve been waiting for. Expect a major change, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2006. It’s time to test your future!
