Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a lovely day because the Moon is in your sign lining up with Venus, then Mercury (also in your sign), making you diplomatic and charming to talk to today. You’re a winner! Everyone will want to enjoy your company. Cheers!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today is a day of secrets, clandestine meetings and hidden love affairs (among many veiled activities). This is a busy social time for you; nevertheless, today you are focused on private matters. Great day for research. Be discreet with whatever you learn.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will enjoy the company of others today, especially friends and members of clubs, groups and associations. A female contact could be significant. For some, a friend might become a lover or a romantic interest. It’s the classic day for a confidential talk.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a wonderful day to schmooze and pander to bosses, parents and authority figures because you will instinctively be in the right place, saying the right thing, to the right person, at the right time. Ask for what you want. What have you got to lose?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might develop a crush on someone who is different today. You certainly want to do something different, that’s for sure. Break free of your usual routine. Go someplace you’ve never been before. Visit ethnic restaurants. Talk to people from other cultures. Travel and explore your world!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Negotiations with others, especially about shared property, inheritances or insurance disputes, will go well today. People will see your side of things, and in turn, you will have a better idea of where they’re coming from, which means a mutual understanding can take place. (Get the money and run.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

By nature you are diplomatic and charming, which is why many of you are successful in the legal profession. Today you will exhibit these qualities when dealing with close friends and partners. This is a good day to let your hair down and have a frank discussion with someone. You won’t regret it.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Even though this is a playful time for you, today you are happy to work and get things done. Attack your To Do list with fervor! You also want to do something that will boost your health even though you are tempted to indulge in sweets and seconds on desserts.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Enjoy schmoozing with others today whether in social situations, sports events or romantic contacts. Not only do you want to have a good time with others, you also want to express your creative talents. Enjoy the arts, movies, music, the theater and playful times with children.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You couldn’t pick a better day for a warm family discussion. Invite the gang over because this is a great day to enjoy the company of family! You will also enjoy doing home repairs and DIY projects that improve the look of where you live.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your words are charming today. You’re pleased and happy with your environment. In fact, it might strike you how beautiful your surroundings are! You are also touched to see how much you are loved by others. And you are.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You have money on your mind today because the Moon, Mercury and Venus are all in your House of Earnings and Possessions. You might enjoy shopping for beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. You might also have clever moneymaking ideas. Fingers crossed!
