Avoid shopping or major decisions from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Because you are finely tuned to the needs and wants of your boss or a parent today, you are sympathetic to their point of view and what they have to deal with. This is good because it promotes further understanding and an appreciation of any differences you encounter with them.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, place yourself in surroundings that will inspire you! Visit museums, art galleries, beautiful buildings or boutiques. If weather permits, enjoy the outdoors because you will feel transformed.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
If you can help someone in need today, you will. And you won’t feel put out. Quite the opposite. You will feel grateful to be in a position to help someone who is less fortunate. This kind of generosity is a two-way gift.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Today, your Spidey sense is heightened, which makes this an excellent day for important discussions with partners and close friends. Because your ego needs are softened, you more easily perceive the wants, desires and needs of others. This is good.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Others can sense that you are in a sympathetic frame of mind today, which is why you might attract someone at work who needs your help. They might need to confide in you, or perhaps they need a sympathetic ear? You don’t have to save the world before bedtime. Just listen.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Because you are in touch with your muse today, give yourself a chance to express your creative ideas and talents. Enjoy the arts! Enjoy musical performances. Enjoy playful activities with children. This is also a romantic, sentimental day.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Today you feel sympathetic to someone in the family. You want to help them or make their life easier. Perhaps you can encourage them? Whatever the case, this is the perfect day to reach out and do what you can. Kindness is the most important thing.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Expect to spend a lot of time daydreaming today or being lost in a fantasy. That’s OK. We all do this. When I do it, I even talk to myself out loud. (You feel sheepish when busted.) Your imagination is heightened today!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You might be tempted to buy gorgeous, elegant items today. Well, make sure you won’t have regrets when your Visa bill arrives. Beautiful things are so tempting! On the other hand, you might spend money to help someone else.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You can sense the energy and feeling of the people and circumstances around you today, which is why you are more aware of their needs. If others sense your empathy, they might ask you for your help. That’s OK. Do what you can. Hey, life is short — and fat.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You will enjoy solitude in beautiful surroundings today because you need a little time just for you. You need a breather! You want to smell the roses — not the coffee. Carve out a little time for yourself because you deserve it. You can’t be all things to all people all of the time. (Or can you?)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You might idealize a friend today and, in doing so, you want to help them, especially if they need your help. In fact, you are so sympathetic and open to helping others, you might be involved with a charitable organization today. This is good because what goes around comes around.
If Your Birthday Is Today

You will taste power and leadership in all your relationships. Get going. Make it happen!
