Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is the one time of the year with the Sun in your sign and this means you are empowered. You attract favorable situations and important people to you. Like everyone else, you are restricted by the warning of the Moon Alert (see above). Confine your spending to gas, food and entertainment during that time.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You will enjoy working alone or behind the scenes today For some reason, people are talking about you, or they notice you more than usual. This is part of why you want to hide somewhere! (Be aware of the Moon Alert.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You are enjoying the company of friends and younger acquaintances. It’s appropriate to discuss your hopes and dreams for the future with others to get their feedback. Do your homework about your goals and give them serious consideration!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

With the Sun at the top of your chart, people in authority admire you. That’s because symbolically, the Sun is shining a flattering light on you. You can use this to your advantage. Bosses, parents and VIPs will listen to you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Travel and a chance to explore new ideas and philosophies intrigue you. Furthermore, relations with people in power (bosses, parents and teachers) are favorable. Go after what you want. But postpone important decisions during the Moon Alert (see above).

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Discussions about shared property, inheritances and anything you own jointly with others might be important today. If so, be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert. Meanwhile, travel for pleasure beckons! Romance with someone “different” might begin for many of you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The Sun is as far away from your sign as it gets all year, and the Sun is a symbol of your energy. Respect your need for more rest. Meanwhile, this is a creative day because you’re full of original and novel ideas. Mull them over but don’t act on them until tomorrow. Just try them on for size in your imagination.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a busy time. You’re working hard. You’re also socializing with others. That’s why today you might want to cocoon at home or hide. You need the comfort of relaxing among familiar surroundings. If shopping for your home, be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert. (See above.)

Review past triumphs and failures as you finish this nine-year cycle. You might let go of people, jobs and places to move on to something new. You are moving away from heavy burdens to something new and lighter!
