Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You will be productive at work, in part because you’re willing to listen to the advice of someone older or more experienced. Generally, you like to do things your way; but today, you’re ready to defer to the wisdom of others.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

If you have the opportunity to teach or train children or younger people, you will be effective. This is also an excellent day to improve a technique or hone your ability to do something creative and artistic. (“How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” Practice!)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A discussion with a parent or older family member will go well, because you’re in the mood to listen to the advice of someone who might be more experienced. Whatever you do at home, you will do slowly and carefully to make sure you get it right. “Measure twice — cut once.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re in a serious, conservative frame of mind, which will be reflected in your conversations with others. In fact, you might seek out older people to hear what they have to offer because seasoned, practical considerations appeal to you right now.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You won’t be frivolous with your money today — oh no. Quite the opposite. You will be more concerned about buying practical, long-lasting items, preferably on sale. Whatever investments or expenditures you make will be conservative. You might repair something or take care of it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The moon is in your sign dancing with Saturn, giving you a more sober, realistic view of life. This also makes you patient and willing to put up with adversity and inconveniences. (Hard butter again? Oh well.) Actually, this can be a productive day for you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Research into any subject will be productive for you because you are focused, patient and willing to continue looking for something until you find what you want. You will leave no stone unturned. (Mars gives you the energy now to work long and hard.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

A conversation with an older female acquaintance might be significant. Whatever transpires will affect your thoughts about your goals. You might also lend your practical help or know-how to a club or organization because it seems to be the right thing to do.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Bosses, VIPs and parents will be impressed with you because you appear to be conscientious, careful and thorough in whatever you do. (Bosses like that because they hate mistakes. No do-overs!) You won’t even mind if they take credit for what you do. (Again?)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You have the patience, focus and endurance to study a lot. You might also use this same concentration to finish writing a paper or work on a manuscript. Everything you do will have a serious flavor because this is your head space.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’re in the right frame of mind for important discussions about how to share an inheritance or divide shared property. You won’t overlook details, and you won’t be excitable. You’ll be sensible, practical and patient, which means you will end up with no regrets. You’ll give it your best shot.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Discussions with partners and close friends will be serious and perhaps subdued. You’re not depressed or anything. You’re just more interested in practical matters and how to accomplish things. After all, someone has to have a head on their shoulders. Eh wot?

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor B.D. Wong (1960) shares your birthday. You are creative and intuitive. You are also a perfectionist. You are calm under stress and know how to motivate others. Now is the time to clarify goals because you are entering a year of exciting changes and new beginnings! Start to define what you want for yourself in the next several years. Be pro-active! This year you will feel physically energetic.
