Moon Alert: Cau­tion: Avoid shop­ping or im­por­tant de­ci­sions from 7 AM EDT for the rest of the day. The Moon is in Scor­pio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

To­day is a bit of a tough day to start your week. Well, it’s not a tough day if you play hooky and just re­lax. But if you are at work, you must post­pone im­por­tant de­ci­sions, es­pe­cially about shared fi­nances, in­her­i­tances, taxes and debt — just un­til to­mor­row.

Tau­rus (April 20-May 20)

This is the per­fect day to re­lax with a close friend or part­ner. Even though your fo­cus on home and fam­ily con­tin­ues to be strong, do not make im­por­tant de­ci­sions to­day. And def­i­nitely, do not make big pur­chases.

Gem­ini (May 21-June 20)

Check the Moon Alert to­day. This is a day for cau­tion be­cause silly er­rors and poor de­ci­sions are likely. Hav­ing said that, it’s ac­tu­ally a fun-lov­ing, play­ful day! It’s just a poor day for im­por­tant de­ci­sions and ma­jor pur­chases.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22)

Do be care­ful to­day be­cause although your fo­cus is on fi­nances, to­day is not the day to seal the deal or write that cheque. It’s OK to do your home­work, and bet­ter yet, it’s a great day to goof off! Hold on to your money.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

It’s Mon­day and you’re full of a lot of en­ergy; nev­er­the­less, this is a poor day for ma­jor pur­chases or big de­ci­sions. (See the Moon Alert above.) Play hooky or just re­lax. This can be a cre­ative, fun-lov­ing day, but curb pur­chases to just food and gas.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a goofy day! You feel in­de­ci­sive and not sure what to do next. Don’t ini­ti­ate any­thing new. Shy away from new de­ci­sions and es­pe­cially ma­jor pur­chases. Keep ev­ery­thing on the down low and wait un­til to­mor­row to act.

Li­bra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Be care­ful with your money to­day. Do not agree to im­por­tant fi­nan­cial ne­go­ti­a­tions. Do not spend money or shop for any­thing other than food or gas. Wait un­til to­mor­row to ini­ti­ate fi­nan­cial mat­ters and ma­jor pur­chases. But this can be a fun Mon­day!

Scor­pio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

To­day the Moon Alert is tak­ing place in your sign for the whole day. This can make you more emo­tional. Sit cross­legged and hum “Ohm on the Range.” Se­ri­ously — don’t spend money on any­thing other than gas and food.

Sagit­tar­ius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’re ea­ger to ex­plore more of your world, es­pe­cially through travel. Peo­ple are help­ful and good to you and even gen­er­ous! To­day how­ever, you should be care­ful be­cause the Moon alert is ac­tive all day long, which pri­mar­ily means don’t spend your money. (Just gas and food.)

Capri­corn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a won­der­ful day to have a heart-to-heart con­ver­sa­tion with a friend or even a mem­ber of a group be­cause peo­ple are will­ing to be frank and let their hair down. It’s not a good day for a de­ci­sion; yet iron­i­cally, it’s a good day to ex­plore ideas. It’s not a good day for shop­ping either.

Aquar­ius (Jan. 2 0-Feb. 18)

When talking to bosses, par­ents, teach­ers and VIPs to­day, be care­ful. It’s OK to en­gage in con­ver­sa­tion, but do not agree to an im­por­tant dead­line. And def­i­nitely do not vol­un­teer for any­thing to­day. Just keep talking and tell peo­ple you will give them your an­swer to­mor­row.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Don’t make travel reser­va­tions or travel plans to­day. Just kick these ideas around and wait un­til to­mor­row to put ink to pa­per. To­day is a very loosey-goosey day but it can be a fun day for schmooz­ing with oth­ers. But it’s a poor day for im­por­tant de­ci­sions or pur­chases. Only spend money on gas and food.

If Your Birth­day Is To­day

Au­thor J.K. Rowl­ing (1965) shares your birth­day to­day. You are friendly and op­ti­mistic. You are also imag­i­na­tive and in­ven­tive. This is a so­cial, happy year with bright and cheer­ful vi­bra­tions. Broaden your so­cial cir­cle to in­clude new con­tacts. Ro­mance and love af­fairs may bloom. You want to live life to its fullest. This year is a year of choice. You might face an im­por­tant de­ci­sion. Hap­pi­ness is hav­ing al­ter­na­tives.
