Moon Alert

Until 9:15 p.m., we have the all clear to do business. The Moon is in Virgo.

If Your Birthday Is May 26

Actress Elisabeth Harnois (1979) shares your birthday. You are dignified and honorable, and protective of your loved ones. You also have a high code of ethics. And yes, you are opinionated. This year you will face a major decision. Save your money in the first half of the year and cut down on overhead expenses, because this will help you later in the year. Your integrity and patience will be tested.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You might be focused on health matters. One thing is certain, you will do whatever you can to get better organized at work and at home. It will please you if you declutter things around you so that you feel more empowered and on top of your game.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You love the good life. You love your creature comforts plus others, especially good food and drink. Today is the perfect day to treat yourself to a special lunch or dinner. Do whatever will give you pleasure — the arts, sports or warm conversation with a friend, especially a lover.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You are out there front and center with the Sun, retrograde Mercury and Mars in your sign. In fact, this time of Mercury retrograde is probably exhausting for you. That’s why today is a good day to hide at home if you can. Cocoon somewhere to catch your breath.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your mental capacity is sharp and penetrating. Not only is your thinking analytical and linear, it is also emotionally accurate. Trust your hunches. In discussions with others, you will be surprisingly persuasive. Use this to your advantage.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a popular time for you, in part because old friends are back in contact. However, today you are in a resourceful frame of mind. This means you might see new ways to earn money or new uses or applications for something you already own. Clever you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign and it is particularly powerful. This is why all your emotions will be quite intense, no matter what they are. However, you have the ability to make improvements to your surroundings and even to your appearance. Take a realistic look in the mirror to see how you might do this.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Even though you want to travel and spread your wings, today you want to hide. After all, you can’t be all things to all people all the time, can you? Take some time today to contemplate your navel and be introspective. Dark chocolate helps.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Discussions with someone, probably a female, will be powerful today. Both of you have strong opinions. Well, we know that you are perhaps disputing shared property or concerned about taxes and debt. Perhaps these practical concerns are in your mind?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Because the Moon is high in your chart now, this means that personal details about your private life are rather public. It happens once a month. But if you have something to hide or you’re a spy, you might want to know. Meanwhile, be patient with someone who is close to you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Shake up your daily routine. Do something different. Take a different route to or from work. Naturally, if you can travel or blow town —by all means, do so! Visit a bookstore or an ethnic restaurant. Soak up new vibes.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your feelings are intense, especially if you are undergoing discussions about shared property, taxes, debt or inheritances. You feel territorial about your share of things, and you certainly hope to get your fair share, don’t you? Of course.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Because the Moon today is opposite your sign, you have to be accommodating with others. Be patient, polite and prepared to go more than halfway. No biggie. It’s just how things work. Be conciliatory to someone at home. (You know who you are.)
