Moon Alert

We have the all clear to shop and do business. The moon is in Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you’re cooking with gas! Oh yeah, you’re PowerPoint on steroids. You will be effective when talking to others, particularly daily contacts and relatives because you will get to the point, make your statement and others will understand what you want. “Move that mountain!”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

When it comes to financial matters, you will instinctively understand what is needed. This is why, in discussions with others, you radiate confidence and leadership. You want to use your money and your resources in a useful, positive way.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You are more courageous and confident than usual. You will speak directly and forcefully, but you won’t be offensive. This is why others will respect you and listen to you. Because your energy level is high, you might enjoy doing something that involves physical labor or exercise.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You will enjoy working alone or behind the scenes because you can see that this is the best way to be productive. However, some of you are also involved in a secret love affair or planning a private tryst with a potential romantic partner. (Tinder related?)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Because you are enthusiastic and invigorated, you will enjoy interactions with others, especially female companions. This is an excellent day to think about your goals and share your ideas with someone to get their feedback. “So whaddya think? Will it fly?”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

People notice you and they’re impressed. You appear confident and focused, and you know where you’re going and what you’re doing (even if this is not really the case). Oh yes, this is the era of optics where appearances are everything. Strange but true.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You’re in an adventurous frame of mind, which is why you want to travel, see new places and meet new faces. Therefore, do anything to shake up your routine and get some fresh stimulation. Do something you’ve never done. Go someplace you’ve never been.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You will defend your rights in discussions about insurance disputes, shared property and inheritance issues. Because of your focused energy, this is actually a good day to discuss how to divide or share something. You might want to address an issue where your values differ from someone else’s.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a great day to relate to partners and close friends. Any discussion will go well because you will understand what is needed and you will see how to unify your objectives with theirs so that everyone is happy. Today you are perceptive, strong and confident.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Count on getting a lot done at work, primarily because you are in the mood to get things done. You feel upbeat, positive, confident and ready for action. Because you radiate these positive qualities, others will be attracted to you and want to support your efforts.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

It’s Thursday and you’re ready for fun! Enjoy a long lunch with friends or plan to meet the gang afterward for Happy Hour. In particular, you will enjoy sports events and fun activities with kids because you are high energy and a bit competitive.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is an excellent day to make improvements at home or do anything to make your home more appealing to family and friends. You might also want to entertain at home; or by contrast, you might choose to cocoon and watch TV with your favorite nosh.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Rapper, songwriter Eminem (1972) shares your birthday. You are a free spirit! You are self-confident, tenacious and daring. Others respect and admire you. This is a fun-loving year. Enjoy increased popularity and warm friendships. This year you will be more grateful for your life and will appreciate the happiness and beauty around you in a daily way. You will make an important choice — choose wisely.
