Aries (March 21-April 19)

You will be intuitive today talking to bosses, parents and VIPs. You might be able to second-guess what they want. Then again, you might be wrong. These things are tricky! One thing is certain: People are more sympathetic and empathetic with each other today.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, which is why this is the perfect day to visit museums, art galleries, beautiful parks and architectural buildings. Likewise, you will be inspired by beautiful ideas! You might develop a crush on someone “different.”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is not an ideal day for important financial decisions, especially regarding inheritances, shared property, insurance and such. You might overlook details. You might have fuzzy thinking. You might be too idealistic and not realistic enough. You have been warned.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you feel sympathetic with someone, which is why you will lend a willing ear to what they have to say. Possibly, you will need to confide in someone as well. You might want to share concerns or hopes. It’s sort of a “what if” kind of day.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Co-workers will be sympathetic to you and vice versa, which will promote friendly discussions on the job. However, this is not a good day for detailed work that requires concentration and focus. On the other hand, you will be imaginative at work!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a productive day for those of you who work in the arts or who work in any kind of field that requires creative, original thinking, because you will easily visualize your ideas today! You can tap into your fantasy world for original material.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Family discussions will go well today because people will be mutually sympathetic with each other. There will be an easy give-and-take and a feeling of kindness and understanding. In fact, there will be mucho simpatico because you almost know what others are feeling before they speak.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Don’t worry if you spend a lot of time daydreaming today or being lost in fantasy because we all need days like this now and then. If you need to use your imagination for whatever it is you are doing, then you are in luck! Today you’re thinking in pictures!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a poor day for important financial decisions because your thinking is fuzzy and many of your ideas are based on wishful thinking. Be careful spending your money. See the Moon Alert above. If you do shop, keep your receipts.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your sensitivity to the world around you is highly tuned today. This is why you are more aware of the subtle aspects of your surroundings as well as the subtleties of other people’s feelings. You’re intuitive today! Listen to your inner voice.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today anything that gives you a sense of “retreat” will please you. Yoga, meditation or quiet time in a private place will be restful and restorative for you. You will feel replenished if you have a chance to relax your mind.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You will enjoy talking to someone today about your hopes and dreams for the future. This might be a good way to define your hopes and dreams — by speaking them out loud. Once you know what you want, you’re very good about manifesting it in your life.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Logan Lerman (1992) shares your birthday today. You are enthusiastic, determined and willing to share your opinions! You are also honest and upright. This is a year of building solid foundations. Simplify your life. Channel your energy in one direction. Exercise is important. Take up yoga, martial arts or jogging — any physical discipline to help ground you. Hard work and effort will pay off this year! No pain; no gain.
