MOON ALERT: Until noon we have the all clear to do business. After that, avoid shopping or making major decisions. The moon is in Virgo. ARIES (March 21-April 19) This is a goofy day. During a moon alert we are like helium balloons freefloating in the sky adrift. It’s hard to focus and concentrate. Shortages and minor errors are likely, but they are fun days to party and enjoy creative, good times. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) This is a wonderful, creative day. If you’re involved in the arts or a creative project, you will be original and see things with a new eye. It’s also a great day to play, party and shmooze with others. It’s a good date night. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You will enjoy relaxing at home even though you might not be productive. There’s a sense of ease in everything you do because you feel laid-back. This is entirely appropriate. Enjoy your day and just pamper yourself. CANCER (June 21-July 22) This is a spacey day. (The early morning is pretty solid.) However, take note: This is a creative day for writers and speakers, entertainers and any situation that requires thinking on your feet. You’re in the zone. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) This is a lovely, social day, however, your focus might be on financial matters, cash flow and possible purchases. If so, be aware of the moon alert above so you can avoid a bad decision or bad purchase. It’s a good day to explore unusual activities. Do something different. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) The moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional than usual. However, things will tend to go your way because the universe owes you a favour. Since there is moon alert for most of the day, just kick back and relax. Postpone important decisions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) This is a great day to shmooze with others; however, you also feel somewhat retiring because the moon is hidden in your chart. This means you have a choice. You can go out and party with others, or you can relax at home and be happy just the same. Your call. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) This is a social day for Scorpios. It’s true that your emphasis is on practical activities that help you get better organized, however, other astrological influences encourage you to party and have a good time, especially with female friends. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Be aware that certain personal details about your private life might be public. People seem to be interested in information about you and your past. Meanwhile, this is definitely a great day to entertain at home. You are also active with groups. Enjoy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Although home and family are your primary focus right now, you want to do something different. You want to get outta Dodge. Any kind of travel or a chance to talk to people from different backgrounds will interest you. Visit ethnic restaurants and new places. Do something different. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Despite your focus on inheritances, shared property, taxes and insurance matters, this is a poor day to make important decisions regarding these issues (with the exception of the early morning). See moon alert above. This is a creative day for writers, editors and actors. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) The moon is opposite your sign, but for most of the day, it is void-of-course, which is the astrological term to describe the moon alert above. It means we all feel willy-nilly and goofy but ready for fun and games. It’s a good time to party and a poor time to make important decisions. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY Entertainer/Elvis impersonator Morris Bates (1950) shares your birthday. You are diplomatic because you sense what’s going on around you and you are socially aware. You are interested in current events and love to express your own opinions. You are also happy to be the centre of attention. This year a major change might take place. It is a time of expansion and promotion. Get ready to try your wings.
