Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Leo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today your idealism is aroused! And rightly so because this new year is going to be so much better than last year! Glory hallelujah! People from other cultures and different countries will appeal to you. Travel will also appeal but perhaps not be possible.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today your appreciation of beauty is heightened. This extends to an appreciation of beautiful ideas and philosophies, which is why stimulating discussions will please you. At one level, you feel ideologically blessed. Something special has touched you.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The wealth and resources of your partner or perhaps someone else might assist you in some way? You might use your influence to help someone who is less fortunate? You certainly want to do something that will expand your horizons this year — and you will.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You will enjoy talking to partners and close friends because you will share a kind of idealism about what to expect for the future. Small wonder that you do feel idealistic because without question, the coming year ahead will be so much better than the year you are leaving. A major relief!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You begin this new year with the moon in your sign. You are entering a new year that will have a strong focus on partnerships, friendships and new relationships. Some will end; some will begin. This is one of the best years in over a decade for Leos to get married.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is the first day of your new year! One thing you can look forward to this year is an improved health situation. Many of you will also improve your job or get a better job. Nevertheless, you will be working hard to attain your goals.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

In this new year, you might have increased responsibilities with children. Nevertheless, this year, children will be a source of joy for you. In many ways, this will be a fun-loving, social, uplifting year for you where you can explore your creative talents.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This year, you will make changes on the home front. You might move to a better home or improve your existing home. You will do home repairs because you’re determined to establish a solid home base for yourself and loved ones.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This year is the beginning of a two-year window where you might have a residential move or a job change or both. One thing is certain, you will feel more optimistic and realistic about your future this year. You are finally in control.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Last year was so difficult. This year will be so much better. It will be better because the stresses of last year will be lifted from you. In addition, it will be better because you will get richer this year! (Money is so handy when you want to buy things.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a powerful time in your life because you are setting off on a new journey to reinvent yourself. This will also be a fabulous year ahead because lucky Jupiter is in your sign for the first time in 12 years! Yay me!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You are entering a two-year window where you will begin to downsize and let go of much of what you have established since 2008. You want to streamline your life so that you’re lighter and ready to enter a new world about two to three years from now.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Morris Chestnut (1969) shares your birthday. You are independent, strong willed and sometimes intimidating. Your strong willpower means you are in control. It’s a time of learning and perhaps teaching. Explore any discipline that helps you get a better understanding of who you are. Invest in your future self. This year will set you in a new direction, which could be crucial for your success next year.
