You make a great impression on parents, bosses and important people. This could be handy in case you want to make your pitch, or do something to advance your cause, or you need approval or permission. If so, this is the day.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is an excellent day for you because the moon is in your fellow Earth sign, which is supportive to you. Good day to make travel plans or explore avenues in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. In important discussions, people will listen to you.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is a strong money day for you, especially if you’re negotiating details about shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and insurance matters. Others, especially coworkers, are ready to listen to you.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
A conversation with a partner or close friend will go well. Nevertheless, it will be in your best interests to go more than halfway when dealing with others because the moon is opposite your sign. (In two weeks, when the moon is in your sign, you’ll be in charge.)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
The stars are giving you mixed messages today. Mars in your sign makes you want to get out there and be proactive! It’s a good time for physical exercise. However, both the sun and the moon want you to hide and relax at home. It’s your call.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today the moon is in your sign, which means you’ll run the meeting. You find it easy to be diplomatic and charming with others because the Moon is dancing with fair Venus. This is a lovely day to interact with friends and groups, especially people who are creative and artistic.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You will feel happy to hibernate today and withdraw from the busyness around you because you need to catch your breath or take a breather. (Whew!) Possibly, a boss, parent or someone in authority will give you the nod so that you can do this. (Every little bit helps.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
