Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a good day to get an increase in your budget or further support for something at work because you just might get it. Meanwhile, continue to look for opportunities to travel because this is something you really want to do.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Relations with partners and close friends are easygoing and warm today. Nevertheless, because the Moon is opposite your sign, you will have to accommodate others and go more than halfway when dealing with them. (It’s just how it works.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Relations with co-workers are warm and supportive today, which is why this is a good day to ask for help from someone. People will be accommodating. Later, you might enjoy entertaining at home because it’s an easygoing day and people are pleasant. (Pleasant is good.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You have an increased interest in the arts today whether to express your own creative talents or admire the creative efforts of others. You will also enjoy social schmoozing and playful activities with children. Romantically, you might really admire someone.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a lovely day to entertain at home. It’s also a great day to cocoon at home and hide if you so choose. Some of you will buy something beautiful for your home because your appreciation of beauty is heightened and something elegant and luxurious appeals. Whatchagonnado?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Relations with others, especially siblings and relatives, are smooth and friendly today. In fact, everything is so easygoing, you might drift off into a fantasy world. No worries. This is also a good day to shop for wardrobe goodies because you will like what you see in the mirror.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Something going on behind the scenes might ultimately benefit you financially now or in the future. Perhaps your sympathy for a co-worker, or your ability to understand where someone else is coming from, will help you in your job. People skills are one of the most important skills you can have.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today the Moon is in your sign dancing with fair Venus and fuzzy Neptune, all of which makes you feel mellow, easygoing and sympathetic to others. It’s a good day. Enjoy schmoozing with friends and groups. If there’s something you want, ask for it because you might get it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Someone will ask for your creative input on something. This person wants to know how to make something look more attractive regarding design, layout, furniture arrangement, gardening — whatever. You might do this sort of thing behind the scenes today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will be attracted to someone from another culture or a different country today. This could be a romantic attraction or you might be attracted to the person’s art. This is also a good day to make travel plans for the future, especially with a female friend.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your relations with someone in authority today might help you to benefit from the wealth and resources of someone else. For example, you might get permission to ask for or receive something. In any case, this is a day where you will benefit from others, so keep your pockets open.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

If you can escape somewhere exotic, you will be pleased today because you need a change of scenery. It’s a great day for exploring new turf with a loved one or close friend.
