Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For two days every month, the moon is opposite your sign. When this occurs, it means you have to be accommodating and go more than halfway when dealing with others. Hmmm, try it, you’ll like it. Be the first to have that gracious word — and the last.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Certain aspects will demand that you defer to others and put their interests before your own. You might have to be of service to someone. This doesn’t mean you’re a loser. Quite the opposite. It can be a rewarding experience. “It’s a joy to labor for those you love.”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a playful, fun-loving day! Enjoy schmoozing with others. Romance is favored along with sports events, fun activities with kids, movies, musical performances, the arts and all social outings. Set aside part of your day to have fun.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might want to hide or cocoon at home so that you can “get away from it all.” It’s the perfect day to relax among familiar surroundings with comfort food and some entertaining diversions. A conversation with a female family member could be significant.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

In discussions with others, you will be keen to state your point of view and be heard because you have something to say. This is why you might be frustrated if people aren’t listening to you, or, instead, they’re preoccupied with superficial chitchat.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You have money on your mind. This could be because you want to buy something beautiful for yourself or a loved one. You might also have some money-making ideas. Most likely, you will do something to promote the feeling of your own self-worth, especially through something that you own.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The Moon is in your sign, which happens for two days every month. When this occurs, you have the advantage over all the other signs. It’s the perfect time to ask the universe for a favor because you might get it. However, you will be more emotional than usual. (No biggie.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You will welcome any opportunity for a little privacy so that you can catch your breath and get grounded. You might choose to lunch alone or sneak off somewhere for some solitude — maybe grab a latte — and ponder the great questions of the universe. (“Should I do laundry tonight?”)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Conversation with a female friend might be important to you. For example, if you share your ideas, especially a dream for the future, they might give you helpful feedback. Or they might encourage you to have bigger, bolder goals?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be aware that people notice you more than usual. They might even know details about your private life that surprises you. Since you care about the impression that you create on your audience, it’s good to know when you are high visibility. (Check your zipper.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Do something different. Kick things up a notch so that you feel stimulated and turned on by life. It doesn’t have to be something major, it just has to be different and out of the ordinary relative to your own routine. Go someplace you’ve never been before.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Whatever happens, you might be surprised to find that you have a stronger emotional reaction than you expected. That’s OK. Be passionate! You might also focus on issues related to shared property, inheritances and such.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor, composer, singer Lin-Manuel Miranda (1980) shares your birthday. You love to learn. Many of you are avid readers. You are also kind-hearted and a good listener. A fun-loving year! Expect to be popular and enjoy 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. It might be time for an important choice. Choose wisely.
