Taurus (April 20-May 20)

It’s Friday, and it’s the perfect day to cocoon at home even though, with the sun in your sign, you are vibrant and energetic! You want to talk to others and enlighten them about something. Family conversations will be lighthearted. Note: Agree to nothing important.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

With Venus in your sign, you are charming and diplomatic with others. Because of the moon alert, agree to nothing important. Don’t make appointments. Restrict spending to food and gas. However, this is a creative day for the arts and for writers!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a poor day for shopping or any kind of financial decision. However, it’s a lovely day to schmooze, depending on the degree to which you can do this. You might schmooze online. You might socialize with family members. Some kind of contact with others will please you.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

There is a moon alert today and it’s in your sign. The upside is that this will heighten your creative juices and prompt you to think outside the box. You’ll be full of original, imaginative ideas. Nevertheless, don’t agree to anything important. Wait until tomorrow. Ditto for shopping. (Except for food.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You have feelings of wanderlust, which is frustrating if you can’t go anywhere. Actually, the underlying essence of these feelings is that you want to learn something new, and have some adventure and discover more of the world! Yeah! Perhaps you can do this from your own armchair?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Three planets are in one of your money houses today, which is why you need to know that you should avoid important financial decisions. Likewise, avoid actions or decisions or signing important papers regarding inheritances, shared property and insurance issues. Smart! Relax.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a tricky day. For starters, it’s a moon alert all day (virtually), which means avoid important decisions and shopping (except for food). However, coupled with this, is the fact that you are noticed today — you’re high visibility. (Tricky indeed.) Be courteous when dealing with authority figures.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You have strong opinions right now and you’re ready to express them. However, most of this day is moon alert, which means that later, perhaps even by tomorrow, you will see things in a completely different light! Agree to nothing important, even though you will enjoy exploring new ideas.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a wonderful, creative day, especially if you work in the arts. You are imaginative and full of original ideas. Social events (if any?) and fun times with family and children will be enjoyable. Look for ways to express your creative urges.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Conversations with partners and close friends will be a bit tricky because the moon Is opposite your sign, and yet, it is a moon alert. Therefore, do not agree to anything important. Listen to what the other person has to say and consider it. Don’t act until tomorrow.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a positive day for writers, actors and teachers because you can express yourself with originality and imagination! It will be fun to test new ideas. Nevertheless, because it is a moon alert today, agree to nothing important. Just toss things around.
