MOON ALERT After 5:15 a.m. we have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The moon is in Aries. ARIES (March 21-April 19) If shopping, you will be tempted to buy elegant, luxurious items. Unfortunately, generally a few days later, you might wonder, “What was I thinking? Why did I do this?” TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You are unusually sensitive to your environment and everything around you, as well as the people you meet. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You might feel self-sacrificing, which is why you are ready to put the needs and wants of others before your own. This is a noble, but you don’t want to be a doormat, either. CANCER (June 21-July 22) In discussion with others, especially charitable or non-profit groups, you might be excited about a plan to help those who are less fortunate. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) If you are dealing with authority figures, bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police, you will see their role in more sympathetic terms. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened, let yourself have the joy of seeing beautiful places. Visit parks, beautiful buildings, churches, university campuses, museums and art galleries. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) If you have to divide or share something with someone, make sure you protect your own self interests. Don’t give away the farm. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Conversations with partners and close friends will be mutually sympathetic. In part, this is because you have a much clearer sense of what they’re thinking and what they want. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Co-workers might be ready to help you, or vice versa, you will want to lend a hand to someone else because feelings of mutual sympathy abound. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You are in touch with your muse, which is why this is a great day for those of you who are working on creative projects. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Be careful about big plans for repairs because your ideas might not be realistic. It’s OK to map out things, but wait a day or two to check out their feasibility. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might spend time daydreaming or living in a fantasy world. This is something we all need to do from time to time — no biggie. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY Actor Giancarlo Esposito (1958) shares your birthday. The world needs more people like you. You are inventive and creative. On top of that, you have a strong desire to serve. Although you are independent, you can also work well with others. Exciting news! This year is the beginning of a fresh new cycle for you. Open any door.
