Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You are a generous sign and today want to try to help someone, especially by using the resources of others. You might want to do fundraising or encourage a charitable activity to benefit those who are less fortunate. (Many of you are activists for animals.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You feel warm and generous to loved ones today, especially close friends and partners. You want to express this warmth by making a generous gesture. Perhaps you will treat someone to lunch or coffee? Something makes you appreciate this relationship today.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Work-related travel will delight you today. Whatever you encounter will inspire you and make you want to help someone or improve something. You will also want to improve your own health. You will certainly be receptive to anyone who approaches you for help.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

It will be a rewarding experience for you to improve your relationship with children. You will also value your own creative expression more than usual. (You won’t be quick to dismiss it.) Meanwhile, romance is the stuff of movies. (Sigh.) It’s a pleasant, social, dreamy day.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You feel generous and altruistic today. You will feel gratified if you have a chance to help a family member. This is the perfect day to entertain at home, especially to invite family and loved ones over for fun times with good food and drink. (Hey, life is short — and fat.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Some days are ho-hum. Some days are a grind. But today you’re in touch with your idealism. You appreciate your surroundings and your world. In turn, this makes you want to be generous to others and to share joy with those you meet. Sounds kinda corny but it’s true.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

If shopping today, you will be tempted by luxury and elegance. (You do love beautiful things, especially clothes.) This is also a good day for financial deals. Meanwhile, if you find opportunities to be generous to others, act on this impulse. You won’t regret it. (What goes around, comes around.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is quite a lovely day because lucky Jupiter in your sign is being nurtured, and this makes you feel warm and fuzzy when dealing with others. This is why you feel friendly, upbeat and generous. You will also be interested in mystical ideas, secrets and deep truths. (Fascinating stuff.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your idealism is aroused today. You are a truth seeker who loves to know more about the world and different peoples. Different philosophies, religions and ideologies always intrigue you. Because today this interest is heightened, explore and discover whatever you can.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your interaction with friends and groups will be on a higher level today. You find it rewarding to be helpful to neighbors or community members. If you can work in an organization that benefits others, this will please you. You might play the role of mentor to someone. Or you might meet a teacher.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

If you have personal influence or you have influence with someone who is in power, you will use this today, especially if you can do something to make the world a better place. (This is always one of your strong motivations.) What can you do?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, which is why you will enjoy museums, art galleries, beautiful buildings and pristine parks. You will also love discussions about lofty topics: metaphysics, philosophy and religion. Travel plans will be exotic!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor-comedian Tommy Chong (1938) shares your birthday today. You are intelligent and verbally clever. You are impulsive and might suddenly take a trip. This year it’s time to simplify your life and build solid foundations. Channel your energy in one direction. Exercise is important. Take up yoga, martial arts or jogging — any physical discipline to ground you. Hard work and effort will pay off this year!
