MOON ALERT Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 1:20 a.m. until 9 p.m. After that, the moon moves from Cancer into Leo. ARIES (March 21-April 19) This is a good day to just take it easy. Conversations with family members will be down to earth and genuine. Do not agree to anything important. Do not volunteer for anything. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Although you feel chatty with others, especially siblings, be careful what you say. You want to get down to the nitty-gritty of things, especially at an emotional level, but that’s it. Don’t agree to anything important and avoid important decisions. Just tread water and listen. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) This is a poor day to make important financial decisions. It’s a poor day to give something away or initiate a new way to make money. It’s definitely a poor day to shop for anything other than food or gas for your car, but your mind is creative about moneymaking ideas. CANCER (June 21-July 22) The moon is in your sign, but it is a moon alert for most of the day. That’s why things are sort of adrift and vague. You’re not sure what you want to do. You lack motivation and decisiveness. And do does everyone else. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) It will please you to be in solitude in beautiful surroundings. You want privacy. You also want your atmosphere to be charming and peaceful. You’ll enjoy conversations with others, especially younger people, but mostly, you want to feel secure in a warm, private way. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A conversation with a female friend will be a bit unusual. You might be very candid with each other. Right now you are rather high-viz, especially in the eyes of others, such as bosses, parents and VIPs. Plus, travel for pleasure appeals. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Strong feelings of escapism are with you now. In a way, you’d rather be somewhere else. A change of scenery is stimulating and yet, soothing. It’s what you need right now. Personal details about your private life might be public. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your imagination is fanciful and heightened, which might be helpful for writers and some research and study. On the other hand, it can also distract you from concentration and study. Enjoy shmoozing with close friends now. This is good. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Remember you need more sleep now because the sun is as far away from your sign as it gets all year, and the sun is your source of energy. Avoid important decisions about taxes, shared property and inheritances. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be co-operative and conciliatory with others because your patience will go far, and in the end, stand you in good stead. This is the day for both play and work. Your strong ambition can help you to be successful in both areas. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Indulge your sense of playfulness now because you are in touch with your creative muse. Enjoy the arts, movies, musical performances, sports events and playful times with children. Romance and love affairs can flourish. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Your focus on home, family and where you live continues to be strong. It is a playful, lighthearted and flirtatious day. Enjoy yourself. Conversations with others are smooth and saucy. And your sex drive is still hot! TODAY’S BIRTHDAY Actor Morgan Freeman (1937) shares your birthday. You are humorous, funny and shrewd.
