Avoid shopping or important decisions from 4:15 a.m. until 5:40 a.m. After that, the New Moon in Pisces moves to Aries.

If Your Birthday Is March 20

Hockey player Bobby Orr (1948) shares your birthday. You are multitalented. You have a vivid imagination and you are a romantic. At times, you are a dreamy optimist looking for the right path in life. This is a testing year of growth and building. This growth will occur beneath the surface. Do not make major changes yet — wait until next year. Strengthen your financial position by reducing your overhead.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You love fresh beginnings because you are an initiator and a pioneer. Today is the New Moon, which means it’s the perfect time to think about new projects and ideas. What can you explore to enrich your life? Hmmm?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is the perfect day to examine your friendships and figure out which ones are worth keeping and which ones are more trouble than they’re worth. Friendships should be mutually beneficial. Discuss your goals with someone to get their feedback.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Are you heading in the general direction you want to go? Are your goals your own goals or the goals of someone else? This is the perfect day to ponder this. Think about where you want to be 10 years from now, five years from now, three years from now.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

What further education or training will help you to improve your job, or perhaps, simply enrich your life in a lovely, more meaningful way? Perhaps increased travel is the way to expand your experience of life? Think about this.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is the perfect day to get your ducks in a row with taxes, debt, inheritances, insurance matters and shared property. These red-tape details won’t go away on their own accord. Don’t just hide them in a drawer or in a pile of papers. Get on it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The New Moon occurs directly opposite your sign. This is the only time all year this happens — just one day. When it does occur, however, it means it’s the best day of year for you to think how you can improve your closest relationships.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

What can you do to improve your job, or how you do your job, or get a better attitude to your job, or perhaps just get a better job? There is always room for improvement. Think about what you could do to improve your health as well. Tall order!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Our society has a big emphasis on success, money and the Protestant work ethic. But this is only part of the picture, right? You are also a playful, creative being. How well do you balance playtime with work? Think about this today.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today’s New Moon urges you to think about home improvements and how you can improve your family relationships. In other words, this is your chance to tweak and improve certain aspects of your personal life. (Only day all year that is this ideal.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today’s New Moon is perhaps your best day all year to think about how you can improve your daily communications with others, especially relatives, neighbors and siblings. If you write, study, sell, market or teach — how can you improve your performance?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The New Moon is an opportunity to make resolutions and set intentions. Today’s New Moon is about cash flow, finances, earnings and how you take care of your possessions. What can you do to improve these areas?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Take a realistic look in the mirror and ask yourself what you can do to improve your image. After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. What about your hair? Your wardrobe? Your shoes? Ideas?
