MOON ALERT We have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The moon is in Scorpio. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You’re so enthusiastic you’ll have no trouble convincing authority figures to agree with you. (Bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police.) In fact, they might mirror your enthusiasm and go along with your suggestions. Or vice versa. Do speak up. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’ll enjoy travel. You’ll also enjoy vigorous discussions about politics, religion, philosophy and thought-provoking subjects because you’re mentally alive and curious. Welcome ways to meet new people from other cultures. It’s a great day to promote writing and publishing. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You have no trouble standing up for your own best interests if you have to discuss how to share an inheritance or deal with shared property. Your enthusiasm for the issues at hand will guarantee you take care of yourself. Excellent! CANCER (June 21-July 22) Conversations with partners and close friends will be dynamic and vigorous because you will put a lot of yourself into what you have to say. Not only that, the people you talk to will be equally enthusiastic and opinionated. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Tackle mental work. Whether you do this at your job or for your own projects, you will get a lot done. Yes, you find it easy to pay attention to detail, but more than that you have the intellectual energy to sift through facts and juggle data. Brainy you! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’re full of money-making ideas. Why not write some of them down? You’re full of ideas to boost your income, keep track of your expenses and, possibly, research a major purchase. Others will respect your ideas as well. Late in the day, someone older might rain on your parade. Phfft! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Family discussions might be lively. However, that’s your choice. You have lots of mental energy to apply to home, family and domestic matters. However, you might choose to use this energy privately by intellectually withdrawing so you can mull over important ideas. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) This is a great day to study, talk, write or do any kind of intellectual activity because you have lots of mental energy. Naturally, you want to share your ideas with others, especially new faces in new places. Travel will appeal. Expect strong interaction with siblings and neighbours. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You’re focused on money, cash flow, earnings and expenditures. Nevertheless, later in the day, you might feel discouraged about something, especially if someone older or more experienced criticizes you. (Well, of course.) Don’t let this get you down. You thrive on optimism. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You are out there talking to others with intellectual authority. You believe in your ideas and you have something to say. The only glitch is that a female, probably in a group, and probably someone older or more experienced, might rain on your parade. Be ready for this. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You will make wonderful headway doing research because you’re mentally alert, energetic and keen to discover facts and work with data, but this is not a good day to ask an authority figure for approval because their answer will be, “Talk to the hand.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Think about your future goals and expectations because you have the mental energy to do this. For starters, are your goals your own goals or somebody else’s? You might also want to examine the attitudes and goals of a group to which you belong. Are these really your people? TODAY’S BIRTHDAY Actor/writer/TV host Seth Meyers (1973) shares your birthday. You are a curious mixture. In one way, you are solid, down-to-earth, reliable and sensible, yet, you are also urbane and sophisticated. You are selfassured and have solid values. You pride yourself on doing what is right. You always do your homework because you like to be prepared. In the year ahead, your primary focus will be on partnerships and close friendships.
