We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Aries.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You are the pioneer of the zodiac. You rise to every challenge, especially a dare. Today is different. It’s not your usual routine. You’re bursting with ideas and eager for change. Don’t be hard on others who can’t follow your fast-moving, impulsive pace. Easy does it.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Money surprises or financial boons might occur today. You might suddenly make some money or you might spend it impulsively on something high-tech or unusual, perhaps modern art. Be careful because you might regret what you do later or someone might criticize you. Grrrr.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is an interesting day full of new experiences that might give you greater insight into the world around you. Your curiosity is stimulated and you feel quick-witted, alert and lively! Nevertheless, someone might try to rain on your parade. Bummer.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You feel restless today. Perhaps something is going on behind the scenes and you’re not quite sure how to respond to it. Should you go? Should you stay? Something makes you second-guess yourself. It could be that you feel self-critical or critical of someone else or someone else is critical of you. Yikes!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
People are interesting today. You might meet a real character or someone who is avant-garde, bohemian or unorthodox. Or by contrast, maybe somebody you already know does something that amazes you? Either way, it’s not a boring day. Nevertheless, someone’s criticism will bother you.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Watch your step today because bosses, parents and VIPs will do something you least expect. This includes the police. It could be wonderful. It might even be liberating. But who knows? (The Shadow knows.) The tricky thing is that a negative exchange could be discouraging. Oh well.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Sudden travel opportunities might fall in your lap today. Nevertheless, there seems to be a problem. It might involve responsibilities or a burden or somebody just doesn’t like the idea. Steer clear of controversial subjects like politics, religion and race because you might end up in hot water.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Stay on top of banking issues and anything to do with shared property and inheritances because something unexpected might surprise you. These are areas where you want to know what’s going on. You want to be in control. At least, be informed.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
A partner or close friend will do or say something that surprises you today. Out of the blue! Or you might meet someone or be introduced to a real character. An element of criticism might throw a pall on things. Go gently. Easy does it. And don’t overreact.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
A spontaneous social event will take place today — barbecue? Sports event? Children’s activity? Movie? Could be anything. Stay light on your feet and go with the flow to enjoy yourself. Admittedly, someone might be a sourpuss and not want to join the fun.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A surprise invitation might come your way today. If something happens, you will have to act quickly because this window of opportunity is brief. On another note, parents must be vigilant about their kids because this could be an accident-prone day for them. Keep your eyes open!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Your home routine will suddenly change today. Stock the fridge so that you are ready for the unexpected, especially company dropping by. Don’t let someone’s criticism discourage you. Keep the mood light and look on the bright side. Attitude is everything.
If Your Birthday Is Today
Movie critic Roger Ebert (1942-2013) shares your birthday today. You tell it like it is and people value your honesty. You are a valuable critic. Many of you will be a student or teacher this year because your capacity for research and understanding is at its very best. It’s a good time to reflect on the past and plan for the future. This will not tend to be a year of action, but rather a year of waiting and development.
