Moon Alert

After 10 a.m., we have the all clear to shop and make important decisions. The moon is in Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’ve been in party mode, and to a lesser extent this will continue. However, starting today, for the next four weeks you will work hard in order to be truly productive. You want to manage your life better. You even want to improve your health.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The next four weeks will be easier because the sun will be in your fellow Earth sign. This window of time will be fun and full of pleasure and entertaining choices. Sports, the arts, fun activities with kids and romantic rendezvous will be tops on your menu.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Home, family and your personal life will be your primary focus in the next four weeks. Many of you will be busy redecorating and improving your digs. However, this might create chaos, which tests your patience. Fortunately, Venus will soften everything.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Suddenly, the pace of your days will accelerate for the next four weeks as you fill your schedule with short trips, time with siblings and relatives plus increased reading, writing and studying. You will be more forceful and direct in conversations — as well as polite and considerate.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Money, earnings and cash flow are on your mind in the next four weeks. This could be a good thing. You might see how to boost your earnings or get a better-paying job. You might also see how you’ve been hemorrhaging cash and decide to do something about it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The sun enters your sign for the next four weeks, giving you a chance to replenish your energy for the next year. It will attract people and favorable situations to you. You are in the center of things and very much in control of your world.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Because your birthday looms ahead, your personal year is coming to an end. For the next month, take some time to identify goals that you want to achieve next year. How do you want next year to be different from this last year? Ideas?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your popularity will increase in the next four weeks. Some of you might be in competition through sports or other events. You might also hang out with creative, artistic people. This window of time is excellent for setting goals.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

For the next four weeks, the sun is at the top of your chart, which symbolizes a flattering light shining on you that (through no extra effort on your part) makes you impress bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. Make use of this advantage!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Grab every chance to travel or get further training or education in the next four weeks to expand your horizons. You want to learn more and have a bigger grasp of the world around you. Romance with someone who is “different” might blossom.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might be surprised at how intense you feel in the next four weeks. This intensity will apply to every aspect of your life, including sex. Disputes about inheritances or shared property might arise. However, it will be easier to get a loan, mortgage or a gift in the next four weeks!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The sun will be opposite your sign for the next four weeks, which means you will need more sleep. This polarization will also draw your attention to your partnerships more than usual and offer you a chance to see things more objectively.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Basketball player Kobe Bryant (1978) shares your birthday. You are efficient, observant and dexterous. You’re also charming and generous and you long for knowledge. Good news! This is a year of teaching and learning. You might learn something profound that sets you in a new direction that is crucial for your success next year. Start to explore meditation, yoga or any discipline that will help you get a better understanding of who you are.
